Alaska flagEdit

I just wrote to their government to try and get actual diagrams of the state flag and other things. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 01:36, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Thank you! I just created a version based on a mockup I found on the Alaskan digital archives. [1] The mockup was very proportional - like most official flag designs. So, I think the mockup is accurate enough to use for the time-be. Thanks again! - DevinCook (talk) 04:59, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
    • I am still not certain about the ratio, but the original one was pretty strange. It probably should be 2x3, but I had nothing official to tell me for sure. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 06:38, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
      • I got official specs now from the Alaska Government. The ratio is 1000x1416. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 06:27, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
        • WOW. Fantastic work! The flag looks incredible! DevinCook (talk)
          • For my Pantone shades, I used For stars, I used the code from the Chile flag file and used it on a few others. It might give more bytes in code, but the accuracy is second to none. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 02:10, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
            • Did you code it by hand? There is an excellent free application called Inkscape that can edit SVG files. Check it out! Anyway, I agree 100% - accuracy is the most important. Thanks again! :D DevinCook (talk) 04:17, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
              • I been using Inkscape since 2005, but I did code it by hand because I have exact specifications. Was not too hard; just take code from another file, change a few values and it was finished. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 04:24, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Flag deletion nominationsEdit

It probably would have been good if you had looked at the "user page image" policies and de-facto Commons treatment of "Special or fictional flags" images before nominating the images for deletion. However, it's true that some of the images you nominated are extremely stupid...   -- AnonMoos (talk) 14:27, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

It wasn't that so much as that the deletion rationales were very generic, and fell short in terms of common Wikimedia Commons practices... AnonMoos (talk) 21:27, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Alternate OregonRequest01.svgEdit

I honestly had no issues with the deletion of this file; when I redrew this flag, I had no idea it was just some alternate history flag before I got Homefront. The flag is only used in the game manual for Homefront and that is it from what I saw. While many users do upload fictional flags and it is confusing, but unless is a hoax or misleading as other said, it is generally not deleted.

But as for adding it to an article, not planning on it. Plus if someone does ask for it to be restored, it is very easy. User:Zscout370 (Return fire) 01:23, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
