Incidence maps

How are they made? I would like to make some for WP but not sure where to start. My target are all these colored maps that are so common around here, is it any app I can help with?--Neurorebel (talk) 22:46, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Caption in Media of the Day

"from the 2011 year." should be "from the year 2011." MartinPoulter (talk) 08:36, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

  Done (sort of) changed it to what I'd consider to be more idiomatic "The 2011 animated short film Little Tombstone". Thanks! Storkk (talk) 09:37, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

MOTD caption, June 24

The file description incorrectly states the video as being shot "in Vancouver" when the video itself says it was shot in Suquamish. It would be more accurate to say "near Vancouver". SounderBruce 21:05, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

  Done Although too late. --jdx Re: 00:40, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

Global move of w:File:Modern_Mongolian_Language_Example,_2016.ogv

Hi, is there anyone who can successfully move this here, to Commons? Awesomemeeos (talk) 23:31, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

Media of the day today is wrong

The Media of the Day today, which purportedly shows how to tie a w:bowline knot, is incorrect. If you tie the knot as shown in the video it will simply fall apart. The initial loop has to go the other way for a bowline to hold.--agr (talk) 04:05, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

  •   Support demoting today's media of the day and finding a replacement, but in the short time (2min) before I have to go to work, I cannot figure out how to do that without risking stepping on someone's toes. agr is correct as far as I can tell, and it's a embarrassing to have this as MOTD.

    •   Done. Storkk (talk) 11:54, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. For the record the video in question is File:Paso a paso de un nudo As de guía.ogv. I hope they can fix it.--agr (talk) 12:18, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
