Hi. You recently overwrote a series of images like File:PR tertiary 301.svg. The guidance at the link would indicate that is not the way to update images where they significantly differ from the originals. — billinghurst sDrewth 05:06, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
- @Billinghurst: Hi! I apologize for the changes I made. The reason why I made those changes was because I currently want the files named PR_tertiary to be renamed to Ellipse_sign because the tertiary shields of Puerto Rico use the same design as the generic state shield of the United States. In this PDF of the DTOP (2003-2004) the tertiary shield is shown in a circular form and in this other PDF (2009) that same shield is shown in the elliptical form. Both versions exist today in Puerto Rico because the first generation of these shields was small and then the wide version came.
- During the past days I noticed that Fredddie changed the PR_tertiary file name to Ellipse_sign, but long before that, I replaced the circular versions with the elliptical ones to adjust them to the version of the second PDF (2009). In that sense, there is no need to duplicate the shields that have the same functions to identify the roads of Puerto Rico. If you look at this discussion on the Wikipedia talk:WikiProject U.S. Roads, you'll see that the changes I made can be considered valid for such purposes. Yamil Rivera (talk) 15:04, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
