Türkvizyon 2013 mapEdit

And here it is, the Türkvizyon 2013 map - File:Türkvizyon 2013 map.svg. AxG managed to make one, and I've uploaded it to as many Wikipedia's as possible. Enjoy, Wesley Mᴥuse 20:16, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Oh, thanks for the map, but see discussion of this map about Aral Sea. Now I needed to settle the issue with an article in the Russian-language section. This is my concern, don't worry. Alex Great talk 09:22, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
Sorry it is a bit late, but I have replied to your post on my talk page. Wesley Mᴥuse 07:16, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
Better late than never. Look at my File:Türkvizyon all map.svg. What do you say? Alex Great talk 07:19, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Eurovision 2015 mapEdit

What do you mean by the snide remark "Wesley Mouse, if confirmed plz add a source when you upload file." that you left on the map file? There is a source if you bothered to take time to check it on English Wikipedia. Wes Mᴥuse 19:49, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Wikimedia Commons is a common project for all Wikipedias. I am not obliged to check all Wiki projects for the presence of sources. Let's keep the tradition of writing source in the description changes field when a file is updated. Thanks. Alex Great talk 10:38, 5 June 2014 (UTC)


Hi Alex (are you the same user as AxG?)

I like your idea of distinguishing countries which have participated but not won, and those which have not participated. The two shades of grey (#c0c0c0 and #cccccc) are very similar, though, so I've made the former (not participated) white but with a #cccccc outline. I also added "0" with a note to the legend. Best wishes, cmglee (talk) 12:53, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

I respect AxG for his work, he making a good maps. Looks are not the best way. I think it would be better to leave my version. Or maybe do the opposite (non-winners are white, non-participants are grey). Alex Great talk 06:16, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
I tested with opposite. Looks are not best way too. I think it would be better to leave my version. I have'nt more ideas. Alex Great talk 06:37, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
Fair enough if white doesn't look good, but the two greys (#c0c0c0 and #cccccc) are much too similar to easily tell apart. How about making the non-winners a darker grey? In addition, I think the extra line in the legend tells the user why there are two greys. cmglee (talk) 12:31, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
Why do we need to distinguish between colors? I made a light gray only for editors who will edit maps. Normal user to anything this confusion with participating and not participating. Let it be this way. Or let me I will remove light gray and make it gray? I really do not see any other way. If you want to distinguish between participants and non-participants, then I think it's already starting to complicate a map to the perception that I have already done in light gray coloring.
I feel hard-nosed. Although I want the map to be understood by all. Take for example this map of Israel. Israel have white color. Jordan, Syria, Egypt and Lebanon have grey color. But Palestine territories and Gollan Highs have a lightgrey color as disputed territory. Very good sequence. No more colors (exclude Hydrography). So what do you say?

Request not standardizationEdit

Hiǃ Your attempt at standardization destroyed the appearance of all tables on the Polish language Wikipedia. Please do not change the size of my files on the Eurovision used in the tables. Changes on this have been consulted, so please do not change. Other languages have their own versions so please do not change the file Polish. Thank you. Miloszk22 (talk) 17:02, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi, @Miloszk22:. Why you against? I updates all files, and have a plan to create another texts for tables for other wikis where its used. Your files is a little bit differs to another language files. My updates is very little change for this texts (only differs height and size of file!!). In my plans are renaming all files, where I want to delete 'PL' letters for usability on YOUR Polish Wikipedia. Very simple If Polish user will be use [for example] File:ESCPolska.svg instead of File:ESCPolskaPL.svg or unused version of File:ESCPolska PL.svg (already deleted as duplicate). ← Alex Great talkrus? 10:03, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Today half of files in polish category were deleted by administrator for duplicate (I hope you agree with this (for example, File:ESCSerbia PL.svg at this time is redirect to File:ESCSerbiaPL.svg). ← Aléxi̱s Spoudaíos talkrus? 00:36, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
I saw this change and are extremely happy. I wanted to do it myself but I did not know what template to use and did not have enough time. You can change the files, if you do it in one day, and change all file not only few. I would not mess again in appearance. Maybe do a file in format "ESCPolska.svg " and then change of those present at yours? If the items will not be long destroyed , I am for your attempt to unify. Several days ago it was on Polish wikipedia unification. I was a little angry that someone suddenly breaks down the process. Many files were distorted, stood out not only the values ​​but also font, so I withdrew your action. Before my unification occurred English names in Polish articles. It was really scary. I wish you fruitful work. :) Best regards Miloszk22 (talk) 11:16, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
What do you mean by the words "breaks down the process" and "Many files were distorted"? The only difference in the version of the file was it height! Font and width were all the same... If the page has changed the size of the words, this action can always be corrected on the page itself by changing the file size in pixels (for example, instead of [[File:PolskaPL.svg|20px|Polska]] you need to use [[File:PolskaPL.svg|18px|Polska]]), and everything would be fine. Take a look at both versions of the file, its do not make any difference, except height!
If you will still be against the unification of Polish names to all the other (rather than vice versa, because others also used a system of unification with the English (and this is not my idea)); then are you giving GOOD to renaming by me to names without the letters "PL" for ease of use? [If so, some of the files with similar names have leave with the letters PL (eg, Andorra, Malta, San Marino, etc.)]. ← Aléxi̱s Spoudaíos talkrus? 13:47, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Once your files have been changed, some old files have larger size, so that it looked bad. You don't change few of them eg. ESCMiędzynarodowejuryPL.svg. I do not know why but some were also distorted for example (other font, but I don't know why). ESCUczestnicykonkursuPL.svg (and you use Uczestnicy instead Uczestnicy konkursu). Maybe it was my hasty decision, I do not deny. So now you can go back to their unification, but use Uczestnicy konkursu instead Uczestnicy. Miloszk22 (talk) 14:05, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Do I understand that I can now roll back all versions of the file to my version, but also change the "Międzynarodowe jury" and "Uczestnicy konkursu" (instead Uczestnicy) (and leave the same size as the others for Uczestnicy)? And also rename all. If yes, I will do it now. ← Aléxi̱s Spoudaíos talkrus? 14:12, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Yes :)Miloszk22 (talk) 15:48, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Mołdawia, Rosja, Finlandia, Polska, Portugalia, Białoruś, Hiszpania, Litwa, Irlandia, Turcja, Wielka Brytania (maybe more) look different than the other. I checked the code and those files have fill="black". Miloszk22 (talk) 18:52, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Realy? Hm... I need to check it now. Wait few minutes. ← Aléxi̱s Spoudaíos talkrus? 18:54, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
@Miloszk22:, I deleted black fill from File:ESCMołdawiaPL.svg, Is it fix problem? If its alreay no differ with other files, than I will be upload another files (or all? 0_o). ← Aléxi̱s Spoudaíos talkrus? 19:07, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

I need one question to you: are you purge a page of Contest? Or file? Some visual diffects is a reason of updatiing files. Plz, use PURGE or Ctrl+ Shift+R or Ctrl+R or F5. ← Aléxi̱s Spoudaíos talkrus? 19:18, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes I do many times. Miloszk22 (talk) 19:25, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Still looks different. Also coordinates differ eg. in Mołdawia → <tspan font-size="14px" y="14.69291" x="-113.82829" font-family="Arial"> and Czarnogóra (the file is good) → <tspan font-size="14px" y="14.692907" x="-113.82829" font-family="Arial">. Miloszk22 (talk) 19:24, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I clear code, and I hope this is the end. Mołdawia looks much better? Is it differ? ← Aléxi̱s Spoudaíos talkrus? 19:35, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Yes now it's great :) Thx Miloszk22 (talk) 19:40, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Oh my god... Finally, I'm very happy. So if it's all that necessary for files. I will change all files (yes, I change ALL files from Polish and other language texts). P.S. I don't know how problem is fixed, I delete one <g></g> code and restruct position of codes taken by Czarnogóra. Thanks you very much. If I do some incoreect edits to another Polish files, plz ping me at Commons or wrote here. ← Aléxi̱s Spoudaíos talkrus? 19:45, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Map templatesEdit

Hello Alex, I saw you updated the Map_template-ru.svg. Could you also update Template:Other_versions/Maps_template-fr by stating the source you used for your update.

Second point, Goren forked the last French version, and improved it so it pass SVG validation and font works better. If you want to update this file, the newest version is now the English one. Yug (talk) 15:21, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Hello Yug, I updated a Template. But I don't want tu update this file at this time. And whats new in updated English file? Only Validation and "better font" (I can't see, where better?). Maybe me or another user will updates this file at the future time. Thanks for notification. ← Alex Great talkrus? 15:34, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
