Thanks for uploading File:Du pont ruth henry.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

No required license templates were detected at this file page. Please correct it, or if you have any questions please check my FAQ or contact me on my talk page. Yours sincerely, Jarekt (talk) 13:24, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:HughGlass.jpeg, was missing information about where it comes from or who created it, which is needed to verify its copyright status. The file probably has been deleted. If you've got all required information, request undeletion providing this information and the link to the concerned file ([[:File:HughGlass.jpeg]]).

If you created the content yourself, enter {{own}} as the source. If you did not add a licensing template, you must add one. You may use, for example, {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} or {{Cc-zero}} to release certain rights to your work.

If someone else created the content, or if it is based on someone else's work, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so.

Please add the required information for this and other files you have uploaded before adding more files. If you need assistance, please ask at the help desk. Thank you!

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2015 is open!Edit

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2015 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear Wikimandia,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the tenth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2015) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category. In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.

Click here to vote »

Thanks,
-- Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee 09:45, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

File:Duke of Atholl arms.svgEdit

Unfortunately, your uploaded version includes some of the strange pseudo-reflective gradients which are required on French Wikipedia, but are highly discouraged in most other contexts... AnonMoos (talk) 15:21, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

@AnonMoos: There's nothing wrong with the gradient. I've seen it used widely across British coats of arms as well and have never heard it's "highly discouraged." Additionally, the previous version of the arms also had a reflective gradient, was outdated and full of errors anyway. Wikimandia (talk) 17:19, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
Compare how widely File:Blason Sainte-Mère-Eglise 50-solid.svg is used to how widely File:Blason Sainte-Mère-Eglise 50.svg is used, and you'll see that many don't like it (and it's only obligatory on French Wikipedia). Also, while the previous image versions may have subtle gradients, your version seems to have a glaring white light which shines on part of the coronet and escutcheon (bleaching out their colors), while leaving the rest of the shield unaffected... AnonMoos (talk) 17:48, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
I am fine with the softer gradient. The point was the other coat of arms under the gradient was WRONG and is no longer used. Wikimandia (talk) 17:50, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

File:Grenfell Tower fire morning.jpgEdit

Pay attention to licensing Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content: images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose.

File:Grenfell Tower fire morning.jpg seems to be free (or it would be proposed for deletion), but it was identified as having a wrong license. Usually, it is because a public domain image is tagged with a free license, or because the stated source or other information is not sufficient to prove the selected tag is correct.

File:Arms of the Earl of Airlie.svgEdit

Unfortunately, that file has an overall pseudo-reflective gradient of the type which is required for coats of arms on French Wikipedia, but mostly discouraged elsewhere. Under the policy COM:OVERWRITE, you should have probably uploaded it as a separate image under a new name... AnonMoos (talk) 03:20, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

  • The point is to replace bad SVGs in Category:Bad SVG Adobe files with CDATA blocks. If I upload a separate file, then I have to go through the trouble of mass replace and then proposing a deletion of the original bad file. The gradient is commonly used among all heraldry files, not just the French Wikipedia. This is the first I've heard it's officially discouraged. Anyway because it's an SVG and not a PNG, it can easily be altered in the future. Wikimandia (talk)
Eliminating Adobe Illustrator cruft does not require heavy-handedly replacing a white shield with a dim grey one, or imposing an overall pseudo-reflective gradient of a type which unfortunately causes more problems than it solves. And it is most definitely not the case that "the gradient is commonly used among all heraldry files, not just the French Wikipedia" -- a rather absurd claim! And this isn't the first time that you've been informed of the problematic status of phoney pseudo-reflective gradients, because we had a discussion on this very point in January directly above on this page: #File:Duke of Atholl arms.svg. If the only real purpose of your upload was to eliminate Adobe Illustrator cruft, then the changes to the visual appearance of this image were in clear violation of Wikimedia Commons policy COM:OVERWRITE. I've eliminated a comparable amount of Adobe Illustrator cruft from various images without particularly affecting their visual appearance: see File:Evilcopyright.svg, File:Symbol of Iwaki Fukushima.svg etc. etc. -- AnonMoos (talk) 18:41, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
One only has to look at en:List of earls and files such as File:Duke of Buccleuch arms.svg (not created by me) to see this style widely used. You're the only one I've seen throwing a tantrum over a gradient. Wikimandia (talk) 19:25, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
Dude, removing Adobe Illustrator cruft is supposed to be a narrow technical issue, not usually affecting image appearance (I've been doing it for about 10 years, so I know). It's not supposed to be an excuse for you to drastically change image appearance in a crude and heavy-handed way. I really think you should stay away from the "Images needing Adobe cruft removed" categories, if you're going to use them as an excuse to violate the Commons COM:OVERWRITE policy... AnonMoos (talk) 02:28, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

File:Arms of Chichester.svgEdit

Your image above possibly shows the tinctures in the wrong order. The blazon is Chequy or and gules, which I believe means the first check is or not gules, as you have shown. By the way - you seem to be systemmatically extirpating my heraldic images from the project (File:ChichesterArmsNew.PNG), etc., which makes me feel I am wasting my time somewhat. Perhaps there is room for a variety of images (provided of course they meet an acceptably high standard) by a variety of contributors? What is your objection to my image? They are png, but made from svg images, and appear exactly as sharp as the underlying svg. I do not use the grey varnish top-coat which you seem to like, but that is not a requirement for heraldic images, which were actually very bright and colourful in mediaeval times, for example as described in the Caerlaverock Roll. The dulling grey patina is thus a form of "antiquing" to taste, and is not a required part of heraldic artistry.(Lobsterthermidor (talk) 18:52, 13 July 2017 (UTC))

  • @Lobsterthermidor: I'm so sorry, I didn't see your earlier message! (Horrible ADD). I think your images are fantastic in appearance but they're supposed to be in SVG. I only replace them as I come across them - I'm not targeting your stuff at all, so I hope you don't feel that way. Reasons vector is preferred: The vector images are lossless as opposed to bitmap PNGs/GIFs/JPGs, which is why the "this file should be recreated in vector" template gets slapped on new shields that aren't in vector. See below. Also, SVG files tend to also be much smaller in size, which means they take up less server space and download quicker. For example compare the sizes of Arms of Mowbray.svg (32kb) vs. MowbrayArms.png (138 KB). Finally, the vector shields can be easily fixed and altered or updated by anybody, or their elements reused, which is another reason why they are encouraged. For example, the Chichester arms - anybody who spots a mistake can fix very easily without having to recreate the whole thing. Since it's vector, it doesn't have to be me.

Anyway does that make sense? If you still have the original files and want to export as SVG, that would be awesome. Wikimandia (talk) 23:53, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Stourton PNG
Stourton SVG
quality in PNG vs SVG
 
Example of Lobsterthermidor's "magic shield" using Inkscape, providing max flexibility in composing elements, but requiring conversion to png then cropping. This is an svg image. I can move that fess up 2cm or down 2cm, narrow it, no problem. I assume that to export as svg you'd have to tailor fess to engrailed border, very tricky! and once done you're not going to want to change it
    • Thanks for your reply, you may recall we had a discussion on this topic on my talk page (14 Dec 2016, heading "PNG"). I can't argue with your technical point re file size, but my images are well within commons tolerances. I do understand your point regarding the image of the Stourton arms above, but these were made by me before my Inkscape days - true pretty lousy quality. But now the png images I upload (thank you for your compliment) are exactly the same resolution as svg ones. (see my latest image   and see if you can see any difference) You may be interested to play about with my "magic shield" svg image above, tell me what you think, it saves a lot of time and allows for great flexibility. You will then see why it is impossible for me to upload as svg. I'm sure you agree with me that the look of two drawings of the same blazon by different artists is different, so "replacement by svg image" is like replacing a painting of a sunflower by van Gogh with one by Monet. Subtle differences, same subject! I spend a great deal of time arranging/composing elements "just right", balanced - to my taste of course, and bright! You are assuming that people might want to produce a poster size image, which I suppose is possible, but surely these images are primarily to suit the requirements of a WP article viewed on A4 or on screen? Also, tell me what you think about my comment on the "grey patina top-coat" I mentioned above. Regards.(Lobsterthermidor (talk))

validating SVG filesEdit

Hi Wikimandia, to some of your last uploads I added the Image generation (or Imgen), so you can see its usage.

File:Arms of Baron Carew.svgEdit

Thanks for the new image of Carew arms. It would possibly be preferable when contributing a completely new design such as this, to upload it to a new file, as the previous image on this file has now been lost. The facility for "uploading a new image" relates only to "this image", i.e. tweaks only: lighter, darker, border enhanced, etc. It is probably quite useful for reference purposes to have a wide range of different interpretations of coats of arms in the category of each family, even if not of good quality. Would it therefore be possible for you to upload your new image onto a new file and revert old file to previous image? Many thanks.Lobsterthermidor (talk) 22:17, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

  • @Lobsterthermidor: Yes, no problem. I'll be happy to do that. I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do with all of the files flagged as having bad SVG. They were all created by one user who is long gone. I started just re-uploading new files but I will go back and revert the other ones too, although ideally they shouldn't be used until the errors are fixed. This one also has the lion in the wrong position but I think there is a specific template somewhere that is supposed to be used for that. Wikimandia (talk) 00:04, 24 August 2017 (UTC)
    • Thanks a lot for having done that. You are correct to notice that the lions in that image are incorrectly shown as guardant. However, of course even on monuments erected by the families themselves, mistakes in depictions are sometimes made. I have just seen one to the Sydenham family in Broadhembury Church which shows billy goats instead of rams (possibly a bad restoration, who knows). I have seen monuments with the Carew arms shown incorrectly too. So we probably don't need to delete/supersede all incorrect images, although of course if they are svg they can easily be corrected. of course as you say incorrect images should not be used in articles, but should perhaps just remain as comparatives in the categories. I find that having a selection of images of all qualities helps the really good and correct images to identify themselves, which helps in understanding the correct form.(Lobsterthermidor (talk) 23:04, 29 August 2017 (UTC))
      • @Lobsterthermidor: Yes, I can see this logic. Btw, did you see the message I left on your talk page, above the other message, about the SVG vs PNG? Wikimandia (talk) 13:45, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
        • Just seen it now, Wow, that sounds very useful, I'll try that out, thanks for the tip.Lobsterthermidor (talk) 10:59, 4 September 2017 (UTC)
          • You're welcome! I hope you find it useful and timesaving. It's especially convenient when dealing with all-over patterns like ermine or fleur-de-lys, which as you know are such a nightmare to try to fit into any shape manually. Wikimandia (talk) 19:40, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

File:Aleksandr Denisov.jpgEdit

no other Alexander Denisovs on Commons. Wrong. Kamolan (talk) 20:11, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

RenameEdit

I guess you should be familiar with Commons:File renaming. Please, have a careful look at it before renaming more files. In particular, don't rename any file unless the reasoning matches one of the clearly stated conditions to rename. Respecting other people's work is a must in a place like this. Renaming a file without any reason covered by the policies and against the wishes of the uploader is definitely something that would lead to the removal of the file mover rights. Best regards --Discasto talk 21:03, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

This one. Thanks --Discasto talk 14:38, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
And this one too @Wikimandia:. Surely renaming should only be done after proper checking - this was one of a pair of quite different images that have messed up time and again by ignorant editors that have no relationship with the project they're from and who have no idea about what these images are, and they've been aided by commons admins who ... frankly should be doing way more due diligence. I asked for a revert of one of these only to be refused on the grounds that the image name was already taken! ... Hello, that "taken" name's a REDIRECT, not a file!

Where is the CoA of the Catholics Monarchs?Edit

Dual extensionsEdit

I was working through the list here: User:Dispenser/Double_extension

Maybe you could spare some time to reduce the backlog? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 08:16, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

I didn't build the list : User:Dispenser did but thanks for the note of support. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 14:42, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
  • @ShakespeareFan00: I saw that now, and that it gets updated once a month. A lot of them have been fixed already. I'm surprised the system even allows double extensions, though some are mistaken (ie christmas.gift.jpg would get flagged as .gif and .jpg). I'm going to propose they not allow names with double extensions. — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 14:49, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Balliol coats of armsEdit

Hi Wikimandia, I was wondering whether you could create two coats of arms? The coats of arms of the House of Balliol (French/English and Scottish) and the coat of arms of the Balliol of Cavers. Examples can be found here; http://wappenwiki.org/index.php/House_of_Balliol. Regards Newm30 (talk) 10:15, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

Thanking you in advance. Newm30 (talk) 10:37, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
@Newm30: You're very welcome! I made those two (File:Balliol arms.svg and File:Balliol of Caders arms.svg) and I am going to make a couple more for use in the Balliol biographies on Wikipedia. I wasn't sure how thick to make the orle (it's not very common) so let me know if you would like it thicker or thinner. — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 11:36, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much. The orle as depicted in both the arms you have created are thick enough. I was wondering whether File:Balliol of Caders arms.svg should be File:Balliol of Cavers arms.svg? Also do you have admin rights to delete current image File:Balliol of Redcastle coat of arms.svg and redirect to File:Arms of Ingram Balliol.svg, as your image is much clearer and better? Regards Newm30 (talk) 23:40, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
@Newm30: Ooops I renamed that one as Cavers. I don't have admin rights to delete File:Balliol of Redcastle coat of arms.svg but since you just uploaded it, you can request speedy deletion within 7 days if it is not being used. You can tag it with {{SD|G7: author/uploader request}} (see COM:SPEEDY) or you can just redirect it yourself using #REDIRECT[[]]. There is also no harm in just leaving it if it's a free file. — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 05:39, 29 October 2017 (UTC)
Your help is very much appreciated. Regards Newm30 (talk) 07:55, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

Bissett/Bisset armsEdit

Hi Wikimandia. I came across a Bissett variation that is "Azure, a bend sinister Argent" (Balflour's Register. 1650). Currently none exist to redirect to, so I was wondering if you could create File:Arms of Bissett of Beaufort (alternate).svg based on File:Blason ville fr Grisolles (Tarn-et-Garonne).svg? Regards Newm30 (talk) 21:18, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

  • @Newm30: Done! How's that look? I noticed the arms for Grisolles used a slightly different blue, more teal, than the usual template. Do you prefer that blue? — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 22:35, 31 October 2017 (UTC)
    • If the heraldry standard is different then I would prefer the standard Azure (blue). If you do not want to adjust arms for Grisolles as well, could you create a File:Arms of Bissett of Beaufort.svg? Regards Newm30 (talk) 22:49, 31 October 2017 (UTC)
  • @Newm30: The tinctures vary considerably, but I usually stick with the tones adopted by the French Project Blason, since I really like the general look they created. And actually the French Wikipedia is the only project I know of that adopted an official style to be used project-wide, which is why I was surprised to see a slightly different blue used for a French town. Anyway I added the second file. These are fun and easy for me so let me know whenever you need more. — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 23:00, 31 October 2017 (UTC)
Thank you and I appreciate your help and assistance. Regards Newm30 (talk) 00:20, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
@Newm30: Done! Do they look OK? — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 17:31, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
Could the File:Bissett of Lessendrum (ancient).svg be changed to use the escallops as shown in File:Armoiries de Heddesdorf.svg? The File:Bissett of Glenalbert.svg looks great. Regards Newm30 (talk) 21:21, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
@Newm30: No prob! Done. — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 21:41, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
Thank you. Is there any possibility (last request for this week) - Azure, a bend Argent, a label of five points (ancient) in chief - File:Arms of William Bissett of Upsettlington.svg (Ragman Roll, 1296) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Newm30 (talk • contribs) 21:51, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
@Newm30: Sure, do you know what color the label should be? — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 21:57, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
I think I will forget about that one at the moment as I do not know the colour of the label. Regards Newm30 (talk) 22:25, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
@Newm30: I just uploaded it anyway using gules since this is the most logical color - sometimes the cadency colors in the older arms are not mentioned and can be anything that doesn't clash (usually, red, black or white). It's easy to change if you find it specified. — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 22:31, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

Thank you once again. Will let you have a few days off before I request any more. RegardsNewm30 (talk) 01:01, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

Cumin garb (the spice)Edit

G'day, I was wondering whether there is any svg cumin (the spice) garb available in heraldry via Wikmedia Commons? If not could you ask any contacts as to whether one could be created? I have found these examples [[1]] & [[2]] which are banded. I need for future arms a version with a band and one without a band. A version then of each is required in Or and Argent. If you have any questions let me know? Regards Newm30 (talk) 08:24, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

  • @Newm30: Hi, I think these are supposed to be cumin garbs (must be canting arms): File:Jan Comijn.svg but they're a little cartoony. I think these must be related to Comyn arms - see article here with the theory that these are supposed to represent garbs of cumin. Anyway, I can draw my own tomorrow, probably based on the second one. No problem to include a band. — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 08:39, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

Cheyne armsEdit

Hi Wikimandia. Hope you had a great weekend. I was wondering whether you could have a go at creating the following?

Regards Newm30 (talk) 22:36, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi @Newm30: I'll be happy to do these! I'm still working on a new garb. I've found quite a few hand-drawn versions I think need to be recreated so hopefully you'll like one. — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 13:54, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
Hi @Newm30: I've done most of these - take a look at the first one. There are a lot of sizes for chequy and fretty patterns so let me know if you want it changed. Take a look at Category:1 fess fretty for examples if you want a larger or thinner pattern. — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 19:10, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Wikimandia. Seeing as we don t have any examples other than the description, the arms as created are great. Regards Newm30 (talk) 21:58, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
@Newm30: Glad you liked them! I created the edock leaf based on photos of the actual leaf. It's a very rare charge apparently, unique to Scotland. I also added the arms for the baronet. — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 03:02, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
That is very interesting about the edock leaf. I also didn't even know about the Cheyne Baronet of Leagarth. Regards Newm30 (talk) 06:59, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
@Newm30: I found an example of the alternate arms [3] and it's pretty close, just a thicker fretty. — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 15:18, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
I think this was the arms referred to in Burke, but now identified as File:Cheyne Viscount of Newhaven arms.svg. Suggest moving the alternate arms to this file name? Thanks for the lookup and find. Regards Newm30 (talk) 20:51, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
@Newm30: Would it be better to rename it Cheyne of Newhaven, or of Cheshire? In the SP, Balfour Paul refers to "this branch" of the House of Cheyne but I have no idea the correct name. The arms belonged this family before the Viscountcy was created. I also found it here in the book of feudal coats (great source), including an example of it quartered [4]. Also happy to do the other ones below. — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 22:09, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
*I just noticed Balfour Paul said this was a fretty argent so I created a different file - File:Arms of Cheyne of Newhaven.svg. If you can think of a better name for this branch let me know. — ʷiḳỉℳẚṅ₫¡₳ (talk) 23:35, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

Obviously two differenced arms of the same family line. Maybe File:Arms of Cheyne of Newhaven (alternate).svg would be a good move for current file File:Cheyne alternate arms.svg? Thanks for the new resource to. Lots of reading to do. Regards Newm30 (talk) 23:58, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
