Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit

BarnstarsEdit

I noticed that you were uncertain of a Barnstar to give someone. There is nowhere on en.wikipedia (or any other project) where all the Barnstars are laid out, quite a few people have put in effort there to fix the situation, but D*heads who are jealous and aren't getting any don't want the Barnstar page to show actual barnstars or encourage people, or help find the right one for the occasion. Their jealousy is so strong they absolutely will not allow so much as a link to the motherload of Barnstars. You will not find it except as secret knowledge.

For you and those who are looking, here is the ONLY place the stars are all laid out for you to choose from. User:Penyulap/Barnstars

enjoy ! :) Penyulap 03:12, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

I really like that octopus barnstar, thanks for the collection. Dmcq (talk) 09:13, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
You're quite welcome. Let me know if you want to give away am exclusive solid gold barnstar sometime, and I'll make it for you. Penyulap 17:50, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Regarding removal of Windows 3.0 logo/icon image from Windows 3.0 articleEdit

I would prefer to keep it there just to point out that flag logo was not yet used in 1990. Also please check the MS-DOS related article, you will see that what it displays on the top of the screenshot is also an icon which is now considered as the only graphical representation for symbol MS-DOS. On another side, while we have duplicate images as of now (in Commons and in English Wikipedia), the best solution would be to delete the second one completely and use the first. What do you think about it? Aaleksanyants (talk) 04:20, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Well I see my removal as more of a vote to remove as others can always disagree with me and in this case I can't see myself as any sort of expert. If another person also disagrees with you then the weight would be against you and you'd have to discuss it on the talk page. It also seemed overlarge, much larger than the original appeared on a screen, I'd like it smaller if possible if you're sticking it back in. Dmcq (talk) 18:04, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
Agree, so I changed the original size to display a 32px image on the left of Windows 3.0 text. -- Aaleksanyants (talk) 14:07, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
