Reversion of File:World marriage-equality laws.svgEdit

Hello, your reversion was excessive. You have improperly reverted also the (correct) situations in Chile, Greece, Cyprus, Estonia and Slovenia. So, I have to redo the work again. Please, be more careful when choosing to which version a file like that should be reverted. Why did you revert all changes I've made without even checking them first to choose the correct version? Thanks. --L736E (talk) 20:19, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

User:L736E Your uploads of the map were incorrect as they did not portray the correct information about Greenland and Finland. Instead of telling me to be more careful when reverting incorrect files, I would advise you to instead be more careful when uploading such information. Please check your facts before doing so. --Turnless (talk) 03:45, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
The point is that, if you revert, you have in any case an incorrect map. In such cases, where both revisions are incorrect, reversion is not the correct action, as you did instead. The correct action is modify the file. So, instead of re-reverting (edit war, to be avoided) and playing the game "you are to blame, not me", you should have taken the file and fix the two incorrect nations, saving the rest of the work that was, instead, correct. Reverting is not the only way to fix mistakes, exactly as you would do with a text: if an user inserts a text 98% correct and 2% incorrect, you do not simply revert the text back to the previous status, wasting the majority of a good contribution. You only fix the 2% to respect the part of correct work done by the other user. It's the basic Wikipedia and Wikimedia mechanism. --L736E (talk) 23:47, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
User:L736E There are other users who can do a much better job with this file than I can. Your upload was definitely not even close to being 98% correct. Please review your contribution before uploading in the future to avoid redundant and incorrect uploads. --Turnless (talk) 00:17, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

New vector maps!Edit

Hello! Just wanted to notice that the vector versions of the current civil wars maps ,except Iraq and Syria, has been uploaded. As you may know vector images can take much less size than other types of images (.png) and can be zoomed without quality loss. If you want to make any updates please make sure to apply them on new vector maps .
Thank you!:) Ali Zifan 08:08, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Reverted File:RussianLanguageMap.pngEdit

This is distribution of RU-Lang by officially recognized states/countries. Crimea and other Russia-induced regions of conflict are not recognized by world community, Please, don't waste time showing occupied areas by Russia. You try to highlight russian lang status from the point of view of Russia. -- Alex Khimich (talk) 13:23, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

Alex Khimich The fact that the regions are not recognized does not mean that the Russian language is not official on that territory. Don't involve yourself in changing maps for your POV reasons, the maps show the reality situation. The fact that Crimea and some other areas are coloured blue only means that the Russian language is official there, not that they are part of Russia, the borders remain the same.--Turnless (talk) 02:39, 15 April 2016 (UTC)
@Turnless: Recognition of Russian language by Russia as official on its occupied or separatism-sponsored areas added, but these unrecognized by UN. Countries claim legislation (Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova) on these regions are not having Russian language as official, thus we are having doubts of status and show recognition as third color. Further reverts I'll estimate as edit wars with following resolutions. Thanks for making me do that. — Alex Khimich (talk) 19:58, 15 April 2016 (UTC)
Language maps aren't about UN recognition, they are about the 'de-facto' situation. If you go to Crimea or any of the unrecognized separatist regions you will be in a place where Russian is an official language. I understand from your page that you are a Ukrainian user who takes this issue very personally, but don't let your person POV effect edits on maps. This map does not show Crimea as a part of Russia, it only shows it as a region with Russian as an official language, which it is. --Turnless (talk) 22:32, 15 April 2016 (UTC)
Before you change map visuals like that, I would suggest you start a consensus on the talk page. What you did may be a good idea but you have to discuss that on the talk page with other users first. --Turnless (talk) 22:37, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

File:World marriage-equality laws.svgEdit

Hi Turnless. I don't know how to update svg files so was wondering if you would please be able to turn both Guernsey and the Isle of Man yellow in File:World marriage-equality laws.svg? Both have passed bills but are awaiting the date for it to go into law. Isle of Man source, Guernsey source. Cheers, Delsion23 (talk) 18:48, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

I think we should maybe wait until the bill in the Isle of Man receives Royal assent and then colour it blue. As for Guernsey, the bill is quite far from actually coming into effect, so it will most likely have to wait even more. --Turnless (talk) 01:03, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

Faroe Islands Legalized Same-Sex Marriage. :)Edit

Faroe Islands legalized Same-Sex Marraige.

Congratulation Faroe Islands.

GOD BLESS FAROE ISLANDS.

http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2016/04/29/faroe-islands-legalises-same-sex-marriage/

The bill still needs to go to Danish parliament and receive royal assent. --Turnless (talk) 01:04, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Italy: the signature is a formal act taht can't be deniedEdit

Hello, you reverted the maps representing Italy's approval of same-sex civil unions with the motivation "bill is not yet signed". Maybe you're not aware that in Italy, once a law has been approved by the Parliament, the President's signature is a due act that can't be denied so the final approval by the Courts is enough in 99,99999% of the cases. There's only one case when the President could decline his signature, i.e. the law is against the Constitution, but this is not the case of this bill. You have quite a passion for "quick reverting without previous informing".... --L736E (talk) 06:52, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Once again an unreasonable revertEdit

The day 20th of may 2016 the President of the Italian Republic signed the bill. This gives the law IMMEDIATE effect. So, once again you are reverting maps without reason, just based on your personal interpretation. This is very close to vandalism. --L736E (talk) 07:20, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Why don't you actually check your sources before making edits like this! The law will go into effect on June 5, 2016. [1] --Turnless (talk) 16:53, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Stop revert or I'm going to block you because of edit warring. The bill has been signed by the President on 20 May thus is irreversible. Your reverts are pointless. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 17:46, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

That map only shows laws once they have taken effect. Finland is also an irreversible case but the law will only take effect in March 2017 which is why it is only coloured in yellow. The law in Italy is not in effect, it will take effect on June 5. If you write such messages on my talk page threatening to block me for following the rules of the map I will report this. --Turnless (talk) 20:58, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
en:Recognition of same-sex unions in Italy states "The law was published in the official gazette on 21 May and will take effect on 5 June 2016.", Gazzetta Ufficiale states "note: Entrata in vigore del provvedimento: 05/06/2016", en:Same-sex marriage states "Effective legalization dates: Civil unions legal in Italy on 5 June 2016.". We cannot contradict our own articles, especially ones that use this image. @Blackcat: it seems inappropriate to be having this discussion here and warning only one user when another (Prcc27) has also reverted in agreement with Turnless. To be fair, I have equally warned L736E. Now, let's take this discussion to the talk page where all users involved (i.e. Prcc27) can participate and know the discussion exists. ~riley (talk) 21:57, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

ItalyEdit

Hello Italy was already fixed here, after local midnight of June 5. From this comparison it is evident that there was no difference between my upload and your. Why did you overwrite it, since the file was exactly the same? --Grigio60 (talk) 06:39, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

My edit just fixed a few small islands omitted in the previous upload. Not only in Italy but also in the United States and Canada. --Turnless (talk) 06:46, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Comment notification for en WikiEdit

I left you a comment on your talk page on the English Wikipedia (EN:W:User talk:Turnless#Recent reverts). Rob984 (talk) 09:28, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

Isle of ManEdit

I noticed your change to File:Same-sex marriage map Europe detailed.svg, "Now that the Isle of Man legalized, a circle is no longer necessary." I don't really understand why a circle is only necessary if it has not been legalized? Now the Isle of Man is barely visible... Regards, SPQRobin (talk) 15:36, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

A circle was differentiating the fact that the Isle of Man has its own laws in regards to issues like same-sex marriage. as per the description given a while ago. A user added the circles to the island and the Faroes Islands. I thought they were unnecessary as they can both be seen fine, but did not change it until now. Do you really think it is barely visible? --Turnless (talk) 15:49, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
I just think that the status (whether same-sex marriage is legal or not) does not matter, what matters is whether it is a separate jurisdiction (at least in this matter), and the Isle of Man is. So each of those small jurisdictions (Isle of Man, Guernsey, Andorra, Malta, ...) should be treated the same on this map, imho: either a circle or not. I indeed think that, without a circle, their colour is not clearly visible as those jurisdictions are too small to see on a map (certainly when used a as a thumbnail on an article). SPQRobin (talk) 16:58, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
I agree that microstates should have circles to make them more visible, but I just don't think the Isle of Man and the Faroes Islands are small enough to need those circles. --Turnless (talk) 17:02, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
I see. So that's where we disagree. I don't know what other editors think... But well, I'll leave it at that, it's not that important. SPQRobin (talk) 17:34, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Pornography laws in CrimeaEdit

I disagree with your vision about pornography laws in Crimea (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Pornography_laws.svg). That fact that Crimea is dispute territory does not cancel Ukrainian laws on this territory. So if somebody creates pornography in Crimea it breaks Ukrainian laws and Ukrainian law enforcement agencies have to start the criminal proceedings against that person/organization. Could you rethink this position and redraw the map or revert to a previous version? I think that Nikolay Sidorov's version is more correct https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/archive/6/63/20160713201629%21Pornography_laws.svg Thanks. Gubtor (talk) 09:05, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

They would not start any legal proceedings. Crimea entirely follows Russian law as it is administrated by Russia. Ukraine considers it a "temporarily occupied territory" which already cancels out many legal proceedings that would have followed through there under Ukrainian law. --Turnless (talk) 14:18, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
You're wrong: they not only have to start legal proceedings, they actually started a lot of legal proceedings about events that happened in Crimea. Status as "temporarily occupied territory" does not cancel Ukrainian official institutions that have to react on ukrainian law breaking in Crimea. Here is an official website of Procecutor's office of the Authonoumous Respublic of Crimea (temporary lokated in Kyiv, use google translate to translate from ukrainian language): http://ark.gp.gov.ua/. There are many press-releases about criminal cases with what works this institution, for example: http://ark.gp.gov.ua/ua/news.html?_m=publications&_t=rec&id=192785 http://ark.gp.gov.ua/ua/news.html?_m=publications&_t=rec&id=192027 http://ark.gp.gov.ua/ua/news.html?_m=publications&_t=rec&id=190423 etc. As you can see, all of them related to the events and actions that happened on the "temporarily occupied territory".
So by fact all actions that somebody do in Crimea can be illegal not only for Russian authorities but also Ukrainian authorities. I still recommend to revert the map to the previous version because current version is incorrect. Thanks. Gubtor (talk) 11:38, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
Even if some kind of official proceedings do take place in Ukraine, they have little relevance to the actual situation in Crimea as they will not legally affect any of the individuals involved since Ukraine has no administrative control over the peninsula. Ukrainian law does not change the fact that the legal status of porn in Crimea and the Crimean population is entirely based on Russian law. --Turnless (talk) 21:03, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
What the hell, how can you ignore an reliable sources that I give you and still follow your individual vision? What the strange arguments like "little relevance"?
If you create a porn film in Crimea then Ukrainian authorities start a criminal proceedings against you and your status from this time is "Wanted". This is a fact so we have to revert the map to the more correct (previous) version where Crimea (as controlled by Russia territory) is filled yellow but also (as territory on which spread Ukrainian laws) has red outline. Gubtor (talk) 09:56, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
First of all, respect en:WP:EQ on both Wikipedia and Commons when responding to any user which means avoiding comments like "What the hell". Second, as I already said the fact that the Ukrainian authorities may start legal preceding will not change the fact that the internet and porn laws in Crimea itself will be entirely followed by Russian laws. Meaning the availability of porn and other internet websites as well as their legality will be based on the laws of the Russian Federation. I am not "ignoring" the source you provided, but it doesn't change the fact that Crimea does not currently function by Ukrainian law. --Turnless (talk) 20:21, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

RequestEdit

Greetings.

Can you also do this change for Northern Cyprus by copying the latest update you did from the File:Time zones of Europe.svg, for these additional files below?

Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 31.200.8.98 (talk) 13:54, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi, unfortunately, I can't fix the PNG file as it is currently also protected, I can ask to end the protection but that will take time. As for the SVG file I think it's better to ask the user who created that map as Northern Cyprus is not distinguished otherwise. --Turnless (talk) 20:14, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

Dear sir. May you fix the map about corporal punishment in us because Delaware ban corporal punishment in the home in 2012 https://www.thenewamerican.com/culture/family/item/13005-delaware-law-bans-parents-from-spanking-their-kids 徳楓 (talk) 22:48, 11 October 2017 (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.

Update for File:Same-sex marriage map Europe detailed.svg, for File:World laws pertaining to homosexual relationships and expression.svg and for File:Same-sex marriage map Europe (without bans).svgEdit

GibraltarEdit

A bill was approved by parliament in Gibraltar. The first marriages are expected to happen sometime in 2017.

Danish islands FäröerEdit

On April 29, 2016 Färöer Islands approved same-sex marriage by parliament. So Färöer Islands should be marked in dark blue colours.

British islands Jersey and GuernseyEdit

JerseyEdit

It was approved by the Assembly on 22 September 2015.

GuernseyEdit

A bill was approved by the States, in a 33-5 vote, on 21 September 2016. The first marriages are expected to happen sometime in 2017.

--178.11.12.33 17:32, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

Guernsey and Gibraltar await Royal assent. The Faroe islands await approval from the Danish parliament. Jersey only passed a measure of support for same-sex marriage, it has not yet legalized them. None of them are ready to be marked as blue on the map. --Turnless (talk) 21:55, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

Death penaltyEdit

Hello.

Last month you updated this capital punishment map to make Russia accurately Orange.

I can only approve this move, since Russia is considered “abolitionist in practice” rather than a full abolitionist by Amnesty International in its last report.

But the map contains many other mistakes contrary to Amnesty International standards, and contrary to this other map, which is completely accurate.

And since I am unable to change an svg map, I respectfully suggest to you to make the necessary changes to the first map I mentioned.

Thank you.
