These series of SVG maps are against NPOV, and they should be modified

These series of Chinese maps contains many disputed area: Arunachal Pradesh (now controlled by India) and Taiwan. it's really against NPOV, and some Taiwanese people think they are offensive, so they should be modified:

NPOV policy is not applicable or effective on Commons. Wikimedia as a whole also does not censor itself because said content upsets or is objectionable to someone. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk · contri.) 06:23, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
唐吉訶德的侍從 -- Where there's a legitimate dispute going on in the real world, then Wikimedia Commons does not take a position, but allows images expressing the views of both sides to be uploaded, and leaves it up to the individual language Wikipedias to decide which images to use. In any case, there are a lot of maps in Taiwan showing Mongolia as part of China, which I imagine would be offensive to Mongolians...
Sameboat -- We can delete images which are hoaxing or hatemongering, or appear to express purely personal eccentric views "without educational relevance". But that does not seem to be the case here... AnonMoos (talk) 10:23, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Is it important to you that the text remains an editable text field? If you convert the text to a path, it will render consistently. Elaboratebreakfast (talk) 00:36, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Big panoramas

Hey guys. I hope I am not annyoing with this request of mine. The point is, in 2011 I made a nice panorama of the city of Sarajevo in Bosnia that was stitched in Hugin and the result was a 371 mpix panorama. Ever since I uploaded that one, I wanted to surpass it. Which I did a short time ago with a new panorama of the town of Kadaň (528 mpix). I stitched the whole thing and uploaded it on commons - yet for some reason I can't get any thumbnail, or even have a chance to download it in smaller resolution or any resolution. The question I might have is not how big image can be uploaded so the server will be able to work with it... rather than "If I could do a 371 mpix, why can't I do 528 mpix and yes... theoretically... where is the limit. --Aktron (talk) 22:13, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
