File:Israeli Transgender Flag.svgEdit

Did you know that your "optimization" actually increased the SVG file size? AnonMoos (talk) 15:10, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi AnonMoos, it's always such a pleasure to read your lovely messages, please come back more often! But, yes, I already know for the size increase (I'm probably stupid like you implicitly suggest, but not that much): I added a XML declaration, and some formatting. Thomas Linard (talk) 15:20, 4 July 2019 (UTC)
If you optimize a file you should:
  1. rendered correclty by librsvg
  2. rendered correctly by other common renderes such as Chrome, Firefox, Inkscape
  3. correct xml Syntax (otherwise the file is considered as broken and generally does not render)
  4. make the file easier to edit (e.g. real Text instead of {{Path text SVG}} or keep SVG-invalid elements such as <inkscape:grid,<sodipodi:guide, sodipodi:type="arc")
  5. make the file human readable (e.g. linebreaks and indents)
  6. remove errors and warrnings from c:Commons:Commons SVG Checker or
  7. valid SVG (maybe adding DTD)
  8. reduce file-size
I would consider it in this order (and 7 and 8 are IMO not worth reuploading)
Thomas upload did improve:
Even edits like File:Oxygen480-mimetypes-application-x-k3b.svg (160699->160769) can be argued (2 indents instead of one), but are in my opinion not worth reuploading.
You find an essay about optimizaion on User:JoKalliauer/Optimization (But be aware that I am often not agreeing about optimizaiton/reuploading with Thomas and Thomas does not agree with all statements in my essay, but I am agreeing with Thomas that file-size should not be the prior concern, therfore I would consider your argument as invalid.)

Welcome, Dear Filemover!Edit


Hi Thomas Linard, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{Rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one. Or, if there was no rename-request, please use the Move & Replace-tab.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{Speedy}}. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.
