Vector version available[edit]

It seems you are ready with everything, and the template can be replaced? I can care for it, when you like. Nationalized versions have to be cared of later, but they are not protected - just the {{/en}} one. The {{docu}} is also free editable. IMHO the New Year is a good time to make things better.

I'll assume you mean {{Vector version available}} rather than {{Convert to SVG}}. Are you going to request an admin to do the replacement, or to lower the protection level temporarily (an edit request for which is pending)? The quickest method either way would be to ask an active admin directly; edit requests using {{editprotected}} often take weeks to months to be actioned. SiBr4 (talk) 13:58, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, of course I meant VVA. I know very well that ER last endless, I'll remove it. The best method might be to transfer the templates dis-sandboxed to Sarang/T, and then tell an admin. Do you want to do the copying? It must be done careful, there is no last test possible. I can try to give a 2nd glance when you copied the templates. sarang사랑 16:16, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Los Santos province flag[edit]

Hi SiBr4, I am writing about the flag of Los Santos in Panama. You have created the flag used in Baseball competitions in the province as an official flag. An user has just added this flag to the article in spanish, which is wrong. We do have a flag used since the province was created as Azuero Province. I sent an e-mail to the Gobernación de la provincia de Los Santos and they have confirmed this information. You can write to them about the flag, they have a facebook account too: via facebook.

Here is what they told me: Buenas noches, claro que cuenta con una bandera que no es la naranja con negro (la cual es deportiva). La bandera representativa de la provincia tiene los colores bolivarianos, lo cual indica que es mas antigua que la república misma. Actualmente se está haciendo una campaña por nuestra parte para darle realce a nuestra bandera con mucho significado histórico. Lo cual es signo de que la identidad del santeño es antigua. Puede escribirle al prof Milcíades Pinzón Rodríguez , el cual lo puede ilustrar mas sobre el tema, el cuenta con cuenta de facebook con el nombre tal cual lo escribí. They also attached a flag, this one. Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 17:51, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

I went by FotW, which shows the flag with chevron, stars and monogram as being officially adopted as provincial flag in 2011. Several newspaper articles supported this: [1] [2] (plus two more that are now dead links: [3] [4]). This flag replaced a similar simpler flag in the same colors. Did the province officially change its flag again, or were the black/white/orange flags not official in the first place? SiBr4 (talk) 19:40, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
      • Good night SiBr4. The orange and black flag has been for long our sportif de facto flag. In Panama we like baseball and all the provinces have adopted a flag to represent them in this kind of competition and our flag is the orange and black flag (for baseball competitions representation). I have to say that I also read the news about this flag becoming our official flag and I was shocked about it because this flag does not represent my province. The colors of this flag have no meaning neither the flag itself. Los Santos province was one of the first 4 provinces of Panama, first created as Azuero province (When Panama was a federate Republik) and we do have a flag, that is why I sent an e-mail to the Gobernación which is the provincial government of Los Santos to enquire about this misunderstanding on internet. They confirmed that we still have the Old flag (Azuero's flag) as our official flag and that the orange, white and black flag can be used only in sportif competitions (Baseball). They have a page in facebook which is the fastest way to contact them or you can talk to Milciades Pinzón Rodríguez about it. He is renowned sociologist of our small province. It is a pity that my province has little documentation about this facts on internet. Probably in the future it would become easier for people like me to have references from internit to prove our history. Thanks for your time. -- 00:44, 27 February 2015 (UTC)


While not taking a position on the actual dispute, just wanted to mention that from my reading of the history, you have not been at all unreasonable as far as attempts to reach a resolution. I'd rather avoid taking a stance, tho... I admittedly have no clue what is actually 'right', but being confrontational never helps. Revent (talk) 04:10, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Invalid SVG[edit]

Thank you for your efforts to give the display a good appearance.

I made some expansions to this template in the last years. Because it seemed too prominent to show always this box

(somehow like punishing the creator...) I made the possibiliti for a not-so-large and not-so-red box
