Cropping from FlickrEdit

Just a heads-up with regards to Flickr - it's best to grab the highest resolution version of an image from it first before you start cropping from it. You'll see the difference in File:Zherdev-flyers-2010q.jpg - your upload was 250×385 pixels; I recropped from the original to about the same points and came up with an image that was 714×1087 in size.

Renaming of "File:Child affected by malnutrition 1921-1923 Famine in Soviet Russia.jpg"Edit

The file "File:Child affected by malnutrition 1921-1923 Famine in Soviet Russia.jpg" was nominated for renaming on 27 November 2010 by Jo0doe to the present filename. On 3 December 2010, you nominated the file to be transferred back to the original name with the edit summary "bad faith edits caused name to be changed incorrectly". As there is a dispute about what the proper name of the file should be, the file should not be renamed until the matter is discussed on the talk page of the file and a consensus is reached. — Cheers, JackLee talk 10:16, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Can you change the licence over to the PD-anon-70 as suggested by Jack and then get it renamed? Mark (talk) 09:43, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Hello, Lvivske!

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

The Euromaidan Protests mapEdit

thanks ! --Lvivske (talk) 15:30, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
in crimea, only 100 were from Euromaidan, rest were for Human Rights Day.--Lvivske (talk) 15:30, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Hi Lvivske, why have you removed the cities I have added? I have provided sources on Ukrainian Wikipedia (w:uk:Євромайдан#Євромайдан в регіонах України), with all sources provided. Would you please return these changes, as all of my changes are indeed sourced? On the contrary, your 5,000+ for Zhytomyr are not sourced. I would also like to ask you to clarify the difference between the red/black and white/green triangles, as it is not clear from the image. Thanks — NickK (talk) 22:27, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
your image messed up the english-wiki version since none of those cities were mentioned on there, so it was like 50 dots with no citations or labels. Feel free to just upload a separate map for uk-wiki.
I have an idea though, how about have my map for just capital cities, and have a separate list article on english wiki for EVERY city that had a rally? I'm going to make a separate map for occupied regions so I'll be removing the triangles anyway. Another issue I had was that I've been keeping a master PSD file so I can remove or add the occupation labels easily, having 2 people work on a single PNG/JPEG causes an edit conflict in this regard.

What do you think we should do? I'm open to collaboration but the issue I think is cramming too much into a single map --Lvivske (talk) 23:07, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Is there any reason to make the difference between two versions: a version with protests sourced on ukwiki and a version with protests sourced on enwiki (by the way, even your version lacks source for 5,000+ in Zhytomyr)? Honestly I don't think so, the best way is probably to synchonize both lists and have a single version for all language versions. I am currently checking the non-capital cities in the regions and adding those that have had mass protests that are not mentioned yet, and I can synchronize both lists once it's done. This should look like this one. I wonder if we should add a criterion (say 100+) or just add all cities we can find.
Concerning occupied regions, I agree that this should be a separate map, so I agree that triangles should be removed.
I would be glad if you could have added all cities yourself and especially change colours. If not, I can do this myself, I think adding rectangles does not really make a mess in the file :) — NickK (talk) 23:25, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
  • I have seen your update, should I suppose that I can continue adding omitted cities (provided sources are available) or should we define a criterion for the cities (e.g. 100+)? — NickK (talk) 18:46, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
100+ for sure. Let me know if one of them changes the color of the oblast so I can keep track (or let me change it after, there's a lot of conflict happening today that might see records in some cities). Keep it a PNG, no compression or anything like that, etc. --Lvivske (talk) 18:48, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Ok for cities 100+. Concerning colour changes, the most notable ones will be:
  • Zakarpattia to 5.000+ (ref)
  • Khmelnytskyi to 5.000+ (ref)
  • Vinnytsia to 5.000+ (ref)
  • Chernihiv to 1.000+ (ref)
  • Odesa to 1.000+ (ref)
  • Kherson to 1.000+ (ref - today)
  • Sevastopol to 100+ (ref)
  • Zhytomyr down to 1.000+ (could not find any proof of over 5.000)
Please also do not forget to update the following enclaves:
  • Slavutych (a small white piece west of Chernihiv): should be coloured as Kyiv
  • Kremenchuk (a small piece of Poltava Oblast on the opposite side of Dnieper): currently coloured as Kirovohrad Oblast, should be coloured as Poltava Oblast
  • Kinburn peninsula (a small peninsula in the mouth of Dnieper split between Mykolaiv and Kherson oblasts): currently not coloured, should be coloured as Mykolaiv Oblast
  • A small peninsula immediately south of Kinburn peninsula: currently not coloured, should be coloured as Kherson Oblast
I will make these changes to the map for now, please keep track of the colour updates. Thanks — NickK (talk) 23:23, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
my main concern is that now the english article is out of sync with that map...--Lvivske (talk) 00:49, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

SVG version of RSA.pngEdit

Hi Lvivske, I have done an SVG version of RSA.png, do you want it to replace your map? If you can't handle SVG files, no worries. --Amitchell125 (talk) 20:15, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

i cant with the program i normally use and wouldnt know how to keep updating it :( sorry. maybe once this is all done and no more updates are needed.--Lvivske (talk) 02:07, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
Understood - keep up the great work! --Amitchell125 (talk) 06:36, 24 February 2014 (UTC)


Why was my edit considered Vandalism? My edit made it easier to edit where it wouldn't look as messy, around the borders. And why are some oblasts transparent? They are either in control of rebels, or the government. Also it is a much smaller size.—SPESH531Other 02:25, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

calling them "rebels" is a biased POV push, and at this point they aren't rebelling against the government because it no longer exists and yanukovych is gone. They are simply occupying the buildings, which is neutral wording.--Lvivske (talk) 03:21, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I never changed the legend, so when I refer to rebels, I am referring to the same as you were, as was the status of the map, and my edits were not POV push, at least use my map, it is easier to edit, and does look nicer. Also, why are some oblasts transparent, like they aren't part of the country?—SPESH531Other 05:55, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
I was talking to User:Asterion in regard to the legend changing. None of the oblasts are transparent anymore, just white (on a white background so im surprised you even noticed).--Lvivske (talk) 07:55, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
When I uploaded the file, I didn't notice the legend changed from when I was making a different map, now I know what you are talking about, foolish me. —SPESH531Other 22:52, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Sir, I am an admin in the English wikipedia. Mind your words and have some respect for your fellow wikipedians. Regards, Asterion (talk) 16:27, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
