HiEdit

I see you are working on some UK cats (which always need all the help they can get!). You may find my preferences -> gadgets -> Hot Cat a useful tool in that context (if you use such things). Regards --Herby talk thyme 08:02, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Licenses etcEdit

Actually I'm no expert - I upload only stuff I've taken myself. However - looking at {{Template:PD-author}} it must have the "author" as a parameter on the template & that is missing from the ones you have done.

Short on time at present but take a look at the pages (& any related stuff) and you may well work it out. Nudge me again if I can help but I'm not around much at present sadly. Regards --Herby talk thyme 16:44, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Re: Cartes topographiques des Iles BritanniquesEdit

Hello Hogweard. Thanks for the support and sorry for this late response.
Yes, for the Falkland's map I went further as I vectorized the altitude levels. This wasn't made without pain (a lot of work), but it was possible for that map because it was relatively simple: this is an archipelago, not very mountainous and I was able to keep the final file size reasonable. This would have been much more difficult for Scotland's map with its larger covered area, its higher mountains...
Note that even in the Falkland's map there's a raster layer: the relief shadows one. This one could also be vectorized but would make explode the file size if keeping a good visualization.
Since then and after reading a lot about the subject, I decided in most cases to stay with a full raster background because a map is meant to be displayed at a defined size (at its scale). If displayed or printed larger it may and probably will give the false impression that it is more precise than it really is.
About a United Kingdom's map, I'm glad you found one that seems to meet your needs because I'm very little active on WP for months now by lack of time, so creating such a big map would be very difficult for me at this time.
If you think about vectorizing a blank WP topographic map (like for example File:France_relief_location_map.jpg) I think you will face big difficulties because of the interfering shadow relief. In some cases (very few if I remember) in my svg maps with raster background the shadow relief is in a separate layer, so this will be easier, still not optimum.
I hope this helps. Greetings. Sting (talk) 21:46, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

I would suggest a change from "Assyrian Church" to "Church of the East" in view of the schism between the Assyrian Church of the East and the Ancient Church of the East. Esoglou (talk) 06:42, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Great work and still, I got a question on itEdit

  Great work and still, I got a question on it
Hello Hogweard,

As you might see, I'm really new to the Wikimedia game. To be honest, I only registered here to ask you about the Falkland's Geology map you draw. Can you please tell me, what are the exact sources for the locations of the geologic units themselves and of the intrusive dykes, respectively. At some spots your units differ slightly from the published geological maps from the Falkland's that I know already. I would like to use your map in my PhD thesis and therefore of cause I need a solid source for it :) I hope, you will help me there Thanks a lot Marko MarkoGeophysicist (talk) 11:11, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Pay attention to licensing
Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content: images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose.

File:Cerne-abbas-giant-1891-ordnance-survey.jpg seems to be free (or it would be proposed for deletion), but it was identified as having a wrong license. Usually, it is because a public domain image is tagged with a free license, or because the stated source or other information is not sufficient to prove the selected tag is correct. Please verify that you applied the correct license tag for this file.

If you believe this file has the correct license, please explain why on the file description page.

Fixing errorsEdit

Hi Hogweard. I realised that some of your recent uploads have minor errors in the svg code. They are:

  • Files related to File:Carmarthenshire Hundreds.svg
    • Line 19, Column 51: Attribute enable_background not allowed on SVG element svg at this point.
    • Line 19, Column 51: Attribute pretty_print not allowed on SVG element svg at this point.
    • Line 124, Column 11: SVG element views not allowed as child of SVG element metadata in this context. (Suppressing further errors from this subtree.)
  • Files related to File:Norfolk Hundreds.svg
    • Line 19, Column 55: Attribute enable_background not allowed on SVG element svg at this point.
    • Line 19, Column 55: Attribute pretty_print not allowed on SVG element svg at this point.
    • Line 46, Column 23: Inkscape element grid not allowed as child of Sodipodi element namedview in this context. (Suppressing further errors from this subtree.)
    • Line 353, Column 11: SVG element views not allowed as child of SVG element metadata in this context. (Suppressing further errors from this subtree.)

Do kindly fix them if you can, also do {{Ping}} me when you're done to notify me so I can't re-validate the files if you can't. Thank you. 大诺史 (talk) 12:06, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
