1920s fontsEdit

Hi, Fredddie. I know you are restricted from sharing the fonts for the old-style highway signs. Wondering if the person who shared them with you would be willing to share with others for personal non-commercial use, or let me know where I can obtain them commercially. They are amazing and unique. I have been having a heck of a time finding equivalent .ttf or .otf fonts. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Msinwnc (talk • contribs) 03:43, 01 December 2015 (UTC)

About Ukrainian road signsEdit

Hi! I am currently looking for the correct color code for M-route signs but it's a bit puzzling for me. I've found a few different colors of the same signs:

  1. according to a special document GOST-DSTU 2014 the color of route signs (i.e. M01) is... purple/magenta. Can't tell what the color is exactly due to quality of the image (see for yourself: http://www.znakiua.ua/Media/znakiua/%D0%93%D0%9E%D0%A1%D0%A2/gost-dstu-4100-2014-znaki-dorognie.PDF , page 16 of the file)
  2. another user has changed a few files (i.e. File:M-road-16-Ukraine.svg) as a "color fix" (#005bbb). That color surely is lighter than in "my" signs, but...
  3. the sign templates on Ukrainian wiki give slightly different color (#0057b8).

I don't know what to do – keep "my" files unchanged or edit to one of the three different colors?

@Miko101: I think that purple/magenta color is supposed to be red. Compare pages 8–10; the red in those sign diagrams seems to be that same purple/magenta color. –Fredddie 22:28, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
