File:Linux_kernel_unified_hierarchy_cgroups_and_systemd.svg[edit]

Hi, Scot! I was wondering if adding hyperlinks around certain software names like systemd be a good idea? Thanks! I am new to editing wikipedia content, so I don't know if adding hyperlinks in SVG is a good practise, hence the question.

If you want to upload new version of a file, go to the image page and click "Upload a new version of this file". But if you described the suggested changes accurately, I could make them too. --Ysangkok (talk) 16:55, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Okay, I made a new box. Please see if it's ok. --Ysangkok (talk) 18:01, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
Yes, usually there is link named: "Upload a new version of this file". But miraculously, in the last couple of days there was a sentence saying: "You cannot delete this file" or something like instead of the link. Now the link is there again... ScotXW (talk) 08:16, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Diagrams[edit]

I saw you made some informative diagrams. You might be interested in Dia, en:Graphviz, or LibreOffice Draw which are specially made for making charts and diagrams. -- Frap (talk) 14:04, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Your graphic layout on how Linux operates is very informative. Thank you. — Ineuw 11:38, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Your contribution to pl-wiki[edit]

Please do not add your very good graphics to articles without checking their contents! Articles at pl-wiki are shorter and don't describe the same elements as en-wiki very often. Also captions should be in Polish. Better way is to add an illustration at the right category on commons, but on pl-wiki side add {{commonscat}} or {{commons}} template only. Polish editors will decide if it should be added and take care about translations. --Slodki (talk) 11:04, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

File:Periodontium.svg[edit]

Hi ScotXW

You added (and removed other) {{attrib|Periodontium.svg}} to this file Periodontium but then it says that it "...includes elements that have been taken or adapted from..." itself, I don't understand.
Should it not be {{attrib|The Periodontium.jpg}} to state where it picked elements from?
And why was it not OK to do it the way I had done before, I want to know to learn how to do what is best here. --Goran tek-en (talk) 13:38, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

I guess both ways are ok :biggrin:. I'd like it done more uniformely, and using templates (the correct templates) give you advantages like auto-adding hidden categories and such. Example: {{Translate}} teaches you about the existing "switch"-support in both, the SVG specs and in commons. ScotXW (talk) 14:59, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
And in case you are the sole author of the entire chain, you don't have to attribute yourself. Pick the link that is likely to be the most helpful for people wanting to re-use your work. ScotXW (talk) 15:00, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
I agree that uniformity is good.
But my main issue was that you linked the attrib on that file to it self, not to the source. I have changed it now to the source. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:22, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Please remain calm and collegial[edit]

The Linux Graphics Stack and glamor.svg: Valid SVG?[edit]

I can make the file you made: File:The Linux Graphics Stack and glamor.svg W3C-valid. Is this what you want? Because you have added the template (inkscape|IMPORTANT=1), that is: "This SVG is stored in Inkscape SVG, using some additional features." If you want me to do make it W3C-valid, drop me a note.

File:Xfce settings window manager.png[edit]

Pay attention to licensing Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content: images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose.

File:Xfce settings window manager.png seems to be free (or it would be proposed for deletion), but it was identified as having a wrong license. Usually, it is because a public domain image is tagged with a free license, or because the stated source or other information is not sufficient to prove the selected tag is correct. Please verify that you applied the correct license tag for this file.

If you believe this file has the correct license, please explain why on the file description page.


Deutsch | English | español | français | polski | português | svenska | +/−


The reason given by the user who added this tag is: CC BY-SA 4.0 is not backwards compatible with GPL'd software (Xfce). You also have not added Template:Free screenshot to permission with correct copying conditions of Xfce.

  • Interesting, where can I read up on your claim? ScotXW (talk) 11:30, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
    • (Disclosure: I have previously edited as 80.221.159.67. I forgot to check back here, but coincidentally found other potential copyright violations today while browsing English Wikipedia.)

      {{Incompatible license}} is a place to start from. What else would you like to know?

      This issue is still unresolved.
