Diagonally striped pattern on svg country mapEdit

Hello guys,

I'm trying to fill countries with a diagonally striped pattern on a svg world map in this kind of style, however, just filling countries instead of regions would be fine. Colors should be able to be determined with the ability to create transparent stripes. There are instructions on how to entirely fill and circle countries, but the above feature is missing. Anyone here who could extend the instructions or comment? Would like to use this map outside of Wikipedia in case there are different rendering requirements.

GIF not "playing" automatically; viewer must clickEdit

I uploaded an animated GIF that "played" fine in the original source, but does not play naturally either on the Commons page or in Wikipedia article unless you click on it to enlarge it.

Explanations, solutions, or suggestions are earnestly requested! Copious gratitude. —RCraig09 (talk) 16:13, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

Hey RCraig, the limit is currently 100 MP, see COM:MAXTHUMB, this GIF has > 276 MP volume. -- User: Perhelion 22:48, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
Profuse thanks to you, User: Perhelion. —RCraig09 (talk) 23:19, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

Text not appearing in SVG via thumbnailerEdit

File:Clavorubin V1.svg is tagged for having missing "atom labels"—bits of text on the diagram. When viewed as a thumbnail on commons (or when used on wikipedia sites), this is indeed a problem. But when I download the SVG file itself, I see a ton of <text> elements, and when I display the file itself in my browser, it renders with them. What detail triggers what seems like a thumbnailer bug? DMacks (talk) 03:43, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

@DMacks: Please review Help:SVG.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 03:47, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
I don't see any "flow" anywhere in the file. DMacks (talk) 03:52, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
@DMacks: -- I wonder which tool generated this file? It may technically comply with the SVG standard, but it does things differently from the way they're usually done. I added some "<tspan>" elements to help the renderer, and it's working now (clear image cache if necessary). I also replaced "Arial" with generic "sans-serif", because Arial is a non-free font which is not installed on the servers... AnonMoos (talk) 10:30, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for looking into it! I asked the uploader here on commons if they had any comments about the program they used. Then belatedly I saw de:Wikipedia Diskussion:Wie erstelle ich Strukturformeln?#Problem: Elementsymbole. According to Google-translate, there is a whole mix of programs and tools used in sequence rather than any one vector-graphics program from scratch. DMacks (talk) 11:04, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
