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?
