Schengen AreaEdit

 
Distracting!

Hello!

Could you please edit this map so that colour-blind readers are not confused and wonder whether Turkey and Russia are part of the Schengen Area?

As it is, I don't believe this map complies with en:WP:Accessibility#Colour because colours and contrast are so close.

Thank you for this much needed improvement. --Azurfrog (talk) 08:23, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

Same message on User talk:Mattflaschen as he last edited this map. --Azurfrog (talk) 08:27, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
Hi Azurfrog,
Let me know if this version is better: File:Map of the Schengen Area.svg
Thanks,
Rob984 (talk) 11:51, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
Way better! Thanks a lot! --Azurfrog (talk) 13:39, 2 September 2015 (UTC)--Azurfrog (talk) 13:39, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
 
Ceuta and Melilla
The card is inaccurate, the spanish enclaves ceuta and melilla ar missing and the canarian islands too. --2A02:8109:9A40:1778:F990:5F36:CD48:F693 12:42, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
Ceuta and Melilla are too small to be visible. Exaggerating them is silly. Since they are part of Spain it would be like enlarging Heligoland. Azores are also part of the Schengen Area, so I will consider expanding the map south and west, but a footnote might be more appropriate. Rob984 (talk) 19:43, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

File:KRWg+mr.svgEdit

Hi: You have requested a move of the file File:KRWg+mr.svg. Unfortunately its not possible. please follow the instructions on the image page. Thanks -- DerFussi 06:36, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Luxembourg ID card filesEdit

Hello :) ! You recently warned me because of the 2 files of a specimen Luxembourg national ID card. Just to inform you that this file exists by thousands of copy on the Internet images and was initially distributed by the Luxembourg city website, so I don't think there is a copyright violation. (+ as I told you before , this is a specimen card ! :) ) Gregori Gregori-luxair (talk) 20:13, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

GibraltarEdit

Hello. Please also mark (green colour) the UK in your image of File:EU-Gibraltar.svg - Gibraltar as overseas territory of United Kingdom. Subtropical-man (talk) 21:26, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

Map of UkraineEdit

Hi! I'd like to ask you why you marked Crimea as 'disputed territory' on the map of Ukraine. I suppose that correct way would be 'Territory occupied by Russia'. --Shmyg (talk) 16:15, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

It is disputed between Ukraine and Russia since Russia also claims it. Most states have no position in regards to either claim and there has been no UN resolution openly condemning "Russian occupation". Rob984 (talk) 22:49, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Identify documentation requirements in the EEAEdit

In Italy national Identity cards are not compulsory for citizens aged 15 or over. Could you please amend the colour of Italy in your map from pink to yellow?

Okay thanks, I will do as soon as I can. I don't have Inkscape right now so it will have to wait until the weekend when I have time to install it. Rob984 (talk) 22:55, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

File:UTC hue4map X region Africa.png needs improvementEdit

Hi, thanks for your edits to this. However, is it possible to create an the same one to Africa. This file (File:UTC hue4map X region Africa.png) is outdated and Egypt is currently implementing DST next month and the current map doesn't fit very well.

Time zones in Africa include:

1) Cape Verde Time (UTC-1) - put in orange

Countries: Cape Verde only

2) Greenwich Mean Time (UTC) - put in light blue

Countries: Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire, the Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, São Tomé and Príncipe, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo and Western Sahara

3) Western European Time / Greenwich Mean Time (UTC) Western European Summer Time (UTC+1) - put in dark blue

Countries: Morocco only

4) Central European Time / West Africa Time (UTC+1) - put in light red

Countries: Algeria, Angola, Benin, Chad, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Western D.R. Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Niger, Nigeria, Republic of the Congo, Tunisia

5) West Africa Time (UTC+1) West Africa Summer Time (UTC+2) (for Namibia only) - put in dark red

Countries: Namibia

6) Eastern European Time / Central Africa Time / South Africa Standard Time (UTC+2) - put in yellow

Countries: Burundi, Botswana, Eastern D.R. Congo, Libya, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe

7) Eastern European Time (UTC+2) Eastern European Summer Time (UTC+3) - put in golden

Countries: Egypt only

8) Eastern Africa Time (UTC+3) - put in green

Countries: Comoros, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda

9) Mauritius Time / Seychelles Time (UTC+4) - put in purple

Countries: Mauritius and Seychelles only

Is there any suggestion to make the map of time zones in Africa and make it the similar one to European one? Since you have removed the non-European countries on the Europe time zones map, is it possible to make an African one and place it to the homepage? Thanks --cyrfaw (talk) 15:03, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm currently under development of the African map time zone. I will try to upload it when its finished and you're welcome to change any mistakes. ---cyrfaw (talk) 15:34, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
I can't edit files at the moment because my normal laptop is getting repaired (I'm using an old MacBook so I don't have either MS Paint or Inkscape for making a bitmap or vector). But yes, it shouldn't be too difficult to create a bitmap version. If nothing more, just recolour File:UTC hue4map X region Africa.png as you want it using MS Paint.
I suggest for the new file, you also don't colour European or Asian countries.
Regards, Rob984 (talk) 15:49, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your time, I have completed and uploaded the file right here, but the problem is that D.R. Congo (East and West) needs to be separated with UTC+1 and UTC+2. Any questions? --cyrfaw (talk) 16:01, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

Council of Europe mapEdit

Hi, I noticed you recently uploaded File:Council of Europe (orthographic projection).svg. I just wanted to note that you entirely omitted the Sakhalin Oblast of Russia. You also left Kosovo grey while colouring all of the other breakaway states green. Either leave all of them grey or leave all of them green. You also omitted Transnistria and Nagorno-Karabakh which are also two breakaway states of Council of Europe members. Northern Cyprus also has strange darker disputed borders that differ from the rest, why is that? I wanted to also ask you to return to our discussion on Time of Europe as I wanted to get your response on the issues I pointed out with you map of Europe. --Turnless (talk) 06:40, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

@Turnless Kosovo isn't quite the same as the other, unrecognised, breakaway states. It is seen as a potential member state for example, see http://legalpoliticalstudies.org/download/Policy%20Report%2006%202013.pdf. But yes, it is misleading colouring those breakaway states. I'll sort it at some point. Rob984 (talk) 17:38, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

RequestEdit

Greetings.

Turkey and Northern Cyprus have abolished daylight saving and are permanently fixed on en:UTC+3 (en:Further-eastern European Time). (Also Crimea has not been updated in some of these files which is also permanently fixed on UTC+3.) See the news and sources. Can you change these files accordingly?

Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 31.200.8.144 (talk) 01:02, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Greetings and sorry to bother you again.
Can you do these changes for Turkey and Northern Cyprus by copying the latest updates from the File:Time zones of Europe (Crimea disputed).svg except that Crimea is colored totally in green, for these additional files below? Many cross-Wikipedia articles use these files which are not updated.
Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 31.200.22.58 (talk) 14:00, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello.
I retracted the deletion request, since the necessary changes were made to keep this file distinct (and must remain so) so it can stay. And I think the administrators will decide to keep it (The administrators are the ones who are allowed to close the deletion request, so I cannot close it myself as an ordinary user, and very likely they will close it). I originally requested it when I saw the file was identical and had no Wikipedia links.
You can erase my message (and the deletion request) in you user page if you wish.
Kinsdest regards. --Maphobbyist (talk) 18:39, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Update for the File:Standard time zones of the world.svgEdit

Hello.

Could you update the File:Standard time zones of the world.svg by taking the changes in Crimea, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, North Korea, Turkey and Northern Cyprus into account, by copying the latest updates from the File:Standard World Time Zones.png? I requested this because I don't know how to create and upload SVG files myself.

Thank you.

Maphobbyist (talk) 19:30, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

@Maphobbyist sorry I can't take requests, I don't really have the time any more. Also I'm not an expert at working with graphics so there is probably someone else who can do it with less difficultly than myself. You can make a request somewhere like Wikipedia:Graphics Lab/Illustration workshop where a lot of contributors will see the request, especially since it is a straightforward bitmap to vector job.

Flag of NATOEdit

Hi,
Using Pantone 280 actually results in a distortion of the color of the Flag of NATO. Furthermore, there is an alternative 3:5 ratio that is used by NATO. I believe that a very early guideline provided for a 3:4 ratio and this is the ratio in which I found a flag of NATO online in 2013, the basis of the current NATO flag on the Commons. I think we need to provide both the 3:5 ratio and the 3:4 ratio, and correct the color.
Link to the already existing 3:4 ratio: Flag of NATO.svg
Color guidelines are on page 6.
I uploaded the 3:5 ratio I found in the Visual Identity Guidelines Flag of NATO 3-5 ratio.svg
Thanks. 475847394d347339 (talk) 21:49, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

@475847394d347339

Using Pantone 280 actually results in a distortion of the color of the Flag of NATO.

How? Where in the guideline is this stated?
As for the ratio, I have no clue.
Rob984 (talk) 21:55, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
@User:Rob984 See page 6. [1] It says Pantone 280 and you changed the color to that in 2015. [2] But it's not the actual color. 475847394d347339 (talk) 22:00, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

The RGB values are supposed to be 0-73-144. You have here 1-33-105. Thanks. I tried to use Inkscape but am having trouble using the bucket tool. 22:13, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Rob984 (talk) 22:17, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
Thats' what Pantone 280 is, but it differs from the color specified on page 6. 475847394d347339 (talk) 22:18, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
@475847394d347339
"Please note: The above CMYK definition of the logo colours is not based on the computer-generated automatic conversion of PMS colours into CMYK, or vice versa, but has been made as a deliberate, conscientious choice to obtain a stronger visual impact."
This is a depiction of the flag not the logo. The flag only has one colour. It's not clear this guideline would also apply to a digital depiction of the flag, and even if there was such a guideline, I'm not sure Wikipedia would want to show a colour that differs from real-life for "a stronger visual impact".
Rob984 (talk) 22:22, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
Ok then. They have changed their use of colors, apparently. The also provide a flag with a 3:5 ratio on page 14. Don't know what Wikipedia or Wikimedia Commons should put forward. 475847394d347339 (talk) 22:24, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
I think the articles on the flag of NATO should note the new moves toward a "stronger visual impact." 475847394d347339 (talk) 22:29, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
Let's change the color of the 3:4 ratio flag to RGB 0-73-144. We can put all three usages, 3:4 ratio Pantone 280, 3:4 ratio RGB 0-73-144, and the 3:5 ratio 0-73-144 I found in the document. We can note the variations on usage in Wikipedia articles. 475847394d347339 (talk) 22:34, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
The fact that they published a 3:5 flag in RGB 0-73-144, not just logos, means that there's a sense of officialness behind the new color. 475847394d347339 (talk) 22:42, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
@475847394d347339 If there's a source for the flag specifically using a different colour in digital depictions then it's something that could be discussed, but other then from this one instance of the flag in the guideline, we can't say for sure. As far as I know the colour has always been Pantone 280, and this can't really be depicted on a flag in a different way. Our depiction of the flag is of the real-life flag. As for the ratio, I don't have any idea honestly. I can't just change the ratio of the flag and upload it for you, since this requires research into how a 3:5 variant should be constructed (size of the elements, padding around them, etc.).
I recommend you take your proposals to the talk page of the EN:W:Flag of NATO article. I don't really have time to help right now.
Rob984 (talk) 22:48, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
