SVG[edit]

It's OK, there was nothing actually wrong with your upload, sometimes I like to tinker if I can improve things... AnonMoos (talk) 00:06, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Diagram Cleanup[edit]

Hey, thanks for the cleanup on the diagram I retouched - I'm still new to Inkscape and SVG in general, not that knowledgeable yet on either. Thanks again Atallcostsky (talk) 20:40, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Oh, no worries! I'm pretty new to this myself, and only realised after someone else edited one of mine (see above!) Serenthia 08:19, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your kind remarks about the map of the naval battle. What exactly needed cleaning up, and how do you do it? The actual drawing was done in FreeHand (v8); I only used Inkscape to convert it to SVG (via PDF). Odysseus1479 (talk) 20:10, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Ah, I just reimported it into Inkscape, checked that the text was paths, and then re-saved it as a Plain SVG. That strips out Inkscape-specific tags, making the file smaller and "W3C compliant". Doesn't change the image in the slightest - just the background code Serenthia 21:56, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
OK, I’ll make sure to do that in future. I have sometimes noticed ‘live’ text misbehaving in renderings, so I’m already in the habit of converting it. Odysseus1479 (talk) 04:18, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

File:701st Airlift Squadron.png[edit]

It was unfortunate when you removed categories from the PNG, considering that the SVG seems to have problems... AnonMoos (talk) 11:25, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I noticed that sometimes as I refreshed the Wikipedia-created PNG was created as necessary, and sometimes it wasn't. I was on a poor internet connection and so decided to leave this for 24hrs in case the image would update on servers, and review this evening. It appears that you've fixed it now anyway, so thanks!
Regarding categorisation, I know there was some discussion on the Superseded Images talk page and probably many more discussions elsewhere. I understand that there are multiple opinions on the best way to tackle this - some feel that all images, regardless of duplicates, should be categorised according to content. Some that only the most relevant image of a set of duplicates should be categorised for its content, with the others categorised as being superseded. Others feel that the other versions should have 'superseded' sub-categories created in the content categories.
I obviously don't want to go against agreed Wikimedia policy, but I've not been able to find a general consensus on this yet. My personal opinion is that if there is a two-way link between the original and derivative image, then only one need be categorised for their shared content. The most elegant solution would then be to have a sub-category within this content category for the original image, but I understand that this is hardly achievable with the vast number of used categories. I'm by no means 100% decided on this and very open to discussion! Serenthia 13:12, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
There are some semi-specific sub-categories for superseded images (e.g. Category:Anti logos obsoleted by SVG replacement), but I'm not sure I see much value in putting images in Category:Superseded only, with no other categorization. If an image is low quality and practically worthless, then it should be nominated for deletion; otherwise it should have some semi-specific category of some kind, indicating in some way the content of the picture. In any case, categories should not removed until after the replacement images has been seen to be fully-functioning... AnonMoos (talk) 16:32, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
