Turkish nodesEdit

The author of these images is -me- and I used -Inkscape- and I was inspired by several various figures and descriptions of these nodes. If you really want to know, I was inspired by this picture : This is not even close to what I did... So saying "dake is not the author" is disrespectful. Dake 00:07, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Hello, Anglo-Araneophilus!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:


2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Your maps in svgEdit

Greetings, Thank you for the maps you are making, can you please provide the vector version of those maps in .svg format, it would be very useful to create other maps.-- 21:59, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Hey, I did not know about an option to create a vector version via GIMP, but I will check whether I can provide it or not. In case you already should know how to create it from a GIMP project file (.xcf), feel free to inform me here on my talk page. So long,--Anglo-Araneophilus (talk) 17:10, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, I don't find a way to vectorize the raster graphics produced by GIMP to SVG. Maybe it was a mistake to use GIMP instead of Inkscape. Thank you for your comment. I should learn to use vector graphic editor applications instead of creating bitmaps. Greetings,--Anglo-Araneophilus (talk) 17:57, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
I don't know whether this is interesting for you: I'm offering to provide versions for further languages (see here), but translations of the single elements shown on the map would have to be done before. Greetings, --Anglo-Araneophilus (talk) 21:44, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Greetings, I've did a few translations to that page, also inkscape has an option called "trace bitmap" in the path menu, I guess it would be quit easy to use if you have the raster image in layers !--Uwe a (talk) 02:25, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
Hello Uwe a, thank you very much for the translations you provided and also thank you for the information about "trace bitmap" in inkscape. I'll try to get familiar with inkscape soon, I just can't promise beeing successfull with it. But as I said, I'll try. The options of inkscape sound promising indeed. --,Anglo-Araneophilus (talk) 17:58, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
