User talk:Magog the Ogre


Hi Magog, I've read your message about the copyright violation. I don't know how to get the right information on there. The family of Marike Bok who owns the rights asked me to upload these paintings to her wiki. Is there a proper way to do this? Sorry for the question but I am not that gifted in Wikipedia. Hope you can assist me to get it right. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Joostwijnberg (talk • contribs) 20:42, 30 October 2017 (UTC) User Joost Wijnberg — Preceding unsigned comment added by Joostwijnberg (talk • contribs) 20:43, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

1968 Presidential Election in Maryland MapEdit


On the western panhandle of Maryland, a small piece of red was taken from neighboring West Virginia in the making off this map. It is a dark shade of red against a lighter shade. I would really appreciate it if you could fix this. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 18:45, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

@Count Awesome: I did not create that image. That would be User:Oganesson007, no relation to myself. But I updated it. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:28, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

2006 Virginia Senate race map requestEdit

I really like the maps you made for Virginia statewide elections over the past few years. Would you be willing to make a map for the US Senate election in Virginia for 2006? I'd really appreciate it. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 20:24, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

Thank you very much for doing my requests for the Maryland presidential and Virginia Senate elections. Also, I really like your expansion of the Virginia statewide maps to races to the 1990s. Keep up the great work! Count Awesome (talk) 13:24, 28 November 2017 (UTC)


hola magog solo queria preguntar como le puedo hacer para subir esos mismos archivos sin violar las leyes, ya ley las normas y no entiendo por que me los marcan como copyright si el logo del baath lo hice yo y la otra imagen le puse fuentes de donde la saque, por favor te agradeceria que contestaras lo mas pronto posible, Gracias. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vec02 (talk • contribs) 02:37, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

@Vec02: tengo varias cosas para anotar:
  • Commons no permite el uso legítimo. Tampoco lo permite la Wikipedia en español, aunque la mayoría de las otras wikis sí lo permiten. Como resultado, a veces la Wikipedia en español no tiene las imágenes que tienen las otras. Puede que no es justo, pero estas son las reglas.
  • Los símbolos oficiales que proveen de «documentos oficiales» en Irak: éstos sí puedes subir si provees la licencia {{PD-Iraq}}. Yo pienso que el escudo de armas de ese país se puede subir con esta plantilla.
  • Los símbolos oficiales de Siria no se permiten, según la ley siria ({{PD-Syria}}).
  • Las imágenes que encuentres en la web, como ésta: casi ciertamente no se permitirían aquí. Hay varias explicaciones sobre este hecho en tu página de usuario de discusión.
Saludos. Dime si tienes otras preguntas. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:34, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
¿Solo una pregunta mas magog? como puedo utilizar el logo del partido baaz sirio, se que no es mi trabajo pero yo le puse el render y sinceramente el Partido Baath Árabe Socialista – Región Siria se ve muy incompleto sin ese logo, por favor si no puedo usar, ¡que puedo hacer?, gracias por responder — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vec02 (talk • contribs) 03:42, November 29, 2017‎ (UTC)
@Vec02: desgraciadamente no se puede hacer con la Wikipedia en español. Por esta razón, varios artículos de esa Wiki parecen incompletos. Pero esto decidió aquella comunidad hace mucho tiempo.
Sin embargo tengo unas buenas noticias: Tasnim News (parte de la prensa iraní) a veces pone en libertad su contenido. Uno de sus fótografos sacó esta foto que podemos usar en todos los wikis: File:Ali Larijani and Hammouda Sabbagh.jpg. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:54, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
Me entrisctece escuchar eso pero gracias por la foto de hammouda sabbagh, ya veo por que nuestra wiki esta muy incompleta, espero esto cambie en un futuro proximp, Gracias y que tengas un buen dia. Vec02 (talk) 04:05, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
@Vec02: espérate. Acaso tengo una solución: File:Syrian Baath Logo.svg se puede usar porque lo creó User:MrPenguin20. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 04:07, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
Wow amigo eres un mago, muchisimas gracias por el archivo.Vec02 (talk) 02:21, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

User:OgreBot/Notable uploads for November 28Edit

Somehow report for November 28 is missing. Please take a look. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:05, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

@EugeneZelenko: looks like it was just a toolserver hiccup. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:16, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

My questionEdit

Dear Admin Magog,

Did you see my question here about another free web site page which is not I don't know if you know about it. Feel free to post a comment or mark the images if you think they are free. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 02:26, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Block evader is back on Commons (Tamara787)Edit

Hello. User:Tamara787 recently returned again as Koxem918. You can see the Wikipedia SPI for more details, if you want. He recently made some controversial edits as well. LightandDark2000 (talk) 09:38, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

@LightandDark2000:   Done Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 20:41, 3 December 2017 (UTC)
I found another possible sock: Roverisk122. The editing behavior so far is nearly identical to that of the last known sockpuppets of Tamara787. Also, this likely sock account is active on the English Wikipedia as well, so I will have to head there and re-open an SPI case. If this account is a sock, can you please indef block the account and run a Sleeper Check, and Rangeblock the recent IPs? Without an IP block, he's just going to keep making more accounts. LightandDark2000 (talk) 00:26, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
@LightandDark2000: I have done this. IP and/or range block is not feasible; whack-a-mole is the best solution at this time, sorry. FWIW, Tamara787 has had a lot of really valuable contributions on those maps, so I actually ignored the sockpuppetry for a while as he kept his nose clean and didn't edit war. After a while, that was no longer possible, but you might consider the same approach (you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar).

2016 Kentucky presidential election mapEdit

    Magog, I really appreciate the work you have done on the maps I requested. I noticed that the map for the 2016 presidential election in Kentucky is somewhat different than previous maps done for the state, such as in 2012. The 2016 map contains counties which were accidentally included that belong to other states. One of the counties in the far west of the state belongs to Missouri while some in the northern part of the state were likely taken from Ohio or Indiana. I should mention the map on top is 2016 while the bottom is 2012. If you could fix the map to resemble the 2012 map in shape, I would really appreciate it. Thanks! Count Awesome (talk) 02:41, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

@Count Awesome: I have done this. User:Oganesson007, FYI you made several errors in your upload. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:15, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

I really appreciate the update to the map. Thank you! Count Awesome (talk) 03:19, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

Slow sitesEdit

Hi, if you're still having problems could you go through the steps on wikitech:Reporting a connectivity issue to get enough info for the operations/network team to debug why its so slow for you? Legoktm (talk) 06:23, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

@Legoktm: sure thing. I haven't had any problems today but I will keep that page handy. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:10, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
