When uploading jpg format imges with embedded EXIF metadata, advise users all metadata is publicly visible

I uploaded an image file .jpg format and subsequently discovered that the hidden EXIF metadata is publicly visible. I think the "upload file" pages should be changed as follows: 1. On the mobile browser version of wikipedia add a warning that the desktop version of the website must be used to avoid compatibility problems with ipad users regardless of browser

2. Advise users that all EXIF metadata is publicly visible and to use a EXIF metadata editing app to delete information they prefer to not share

If
  1. a user uploads a file to a public site, and
  2. the user has a median human intellect (or above),
then s/he must understand that all data in the file become publicly visible. @Adrian816: please, do not give such advices. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 03:51, 1 March 2018 (UTC)
@Adrian816: in English Wikipedia, I routinely pressed [rollback] without explanations just seeing anything like this addition. Use talk pages for suggestions since you are definitely not a computer graphics expert. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 21:55, 3 March 2018 (UTC)

File:M1.png and File:M2.png

After reverting File:M1.png and File:M2.png to original version, I can still see versions uploaded by User:Kabu0321. Cathy Richards (talk) 21:13, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

If you mean in the file history, that’s normal. If you mean the main thumbnails, they look OK to me; have you tried clearing your browser cache?—Odysseus1479 (talk) 21:49, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Fonts available to SVG renderer in Commons

Please see Category:Typeface Samples of Fonts available to Commons SVG engine for some samples of server side font rendering on Commons. It includes also some fallback tests (Arial, Courier New, etc.) and generic names (serif, sans-serif). I picked a few from the NOC-list, but also found additional fonts to work (Nimbus Sans L). Please look closly, some glyphs are rendered by fallback fonts!--Aeroid (talk) 11:47, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
