## ERRONEOUS GENOME RENDERINGSEdit

I have it from a good scholarly source the banding on chromosome 1 is reversed. gieStain = gneg should be white. As you can see from the data below p36.33 is gieStain gneg. Which should be white or lack of color. This is the first unmarked band on the svg. I've found if you revesrse the CSS in the SVG for the background and the band it is correct. Great job on the SVGs! Very efficient! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Chromosome_1.svg

Here is an sql query you can run against UCSC's mysql database.

Hello,

## Bugfix needed for File:Telefunken_FuBK_test_pattern.svgEdit

File commons:File:Telefunken_FuBK_test_pattern.svg contains a small bug. The multi burst signal below of the middle and to the left of the orange field, should be sinusoidal signals, not rectangular ones. To speak visual, that means the black an white stripes should not have sharp edges, but somewhat blurry in horizontal axis. -- Pemu (talk) 00:23, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Just a nerdy suggestion: de:Benutzer:Rotkaeppchen68, the author of the IMHO better commons:File:FuBK-Testbild.png mentioned that its image has been created by a small C program. Maybe it's possible to port that C code to SVG code. -- Pemu (talk) 00:31, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
This picture contains additional bugs: Circle is too large (should be ${\displaystyle r={\sqrt {45}}}$ ), ±U and ±V at the bottom are discolored (reddish, blueish and two yielding 50% gray when decoded correctly), gray scale has too little steps (should be 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100 %). Ghost detection mark below the 1-,2-,3- and 4,43-MHz-bursts is mirrored. 4,43-MHz-Burst is discolored. --Rôtkæppchen68 04:53, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

## hello, my name is benjaminEdit

I came across your world map labeling the stance taken by countries on the use of conscription. first off, excellent work. thank you for putting that together. secondly, I wondered if you had a moment to share whether editing and contributing to wikipedia is a hobby of yours or if you have found a way to make it a gainful employment. I am brand new to the idea of contributing to wikipedia, as I just created this account in order to contact you. Any info at all that you care to share would be greatly appreciated.

## Map reliefsEdit

Hi Mysid

i'm a french cartographer and i found your maps on the pages of wikipedia about Socotra island and Svalbard archipelago :

i was impressed by the relief of these maps !

I would like to know how proceeding to obtain this kind of topographic map....

I was on the NASA site but i did'nt find usefull informations and datas.

it would be very nice if you could tell me the procedure to follow

Thanks

Best regards

Hi Thierry. I have used different methods. For the Socotra map I wrote a Perl program to extract binary images of height masks thresholded at different heights, then autotraced and colored these in Inkscape. The data is from SRTM; I wrote my own programs to extract and project that data as well. (These scripts are not very useful for public release, unfortunately.) For the Svalbard map I did a similar thing but did the trace manually. The relief shading used in the Svalbard map was also done in a custom Perl script that I wrote based on an article about analytical hill shading. I think I found the article on Google Scholar. ›mysid () 19:24, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

## Extended confirmed protectionEdit

 Hello, Mysid. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy. Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas. In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions: Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort. A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard. Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you. This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:48, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello,

## A new user right for New Page PatrollersEdit

Hi Mysid.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

## ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open!Edit

It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment.

## Filters using In2=BackgroundImage only works in IE/Edge browsers, and not on the svg root elementEdit

Hi there!

I am working in the Microsoft Edge team and was investigating with a co-worker a complaint (about flickering and disappearance) of parts of <a href="https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/48/Map_of_Nicobar_and_Andaman_Islands-en.svg">some</a> of your svg maps on wikipedia. As it turns out, you are using an embedded image in your svg to draw the sea relief map over the svg content. Unfortunately, in doing so, you are using the In2=BackgroundImage feature of SVG Filters which is not supported in Google Chrome and Safari (ignored, resulting in the image showing unfiltered on top of your maps and ruining the color scale) and purposefully disabled in Firefox (in addition, sadly, to the flakiness of the feature in Edge when enable-background is used on the root svg element).

At this point it doesn't seem very likely we will be able to fix our bug in the feature give it doesn't work in any other browser, but I decided to apply a workaround to your maps (though I don't have time to fix all the translated versions unfortunately). The fix is to wrap your svg content into a <g style="enable-background:new"> element which does enable In2=BackgroundImage filters without issue in Edge/IE, and is a noop in all other browsers. Since it's a noop that doesn't make the feature work any better in the other browsers, though.

Just wanted to let you know in case you never noticed :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by FremyCompany (talkcontribs) 02:22, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

> EDIT: Sadly I don't have upload rights on Wikipedia English so having me fix the images is unfortunately pointless. Actually, I found out the only thing needed in most cases is to add enable-background:new on the image on which you use the effect, no need to do anything else to get things working in Edge. If you could do me a favor and add this to your existing maps using the feature, that would be awesome. — Preceding unsigned comment added by FremyCompany (talkcontribs) 02:50, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up – I'll try and remember to do this soon. This way of embedding raster images probably comes from Inkscape. I could try and find an alternative method so that other browsers could possibly render it as well. ›mysid () 08:46, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

## Invitation to Admin confidence surveyEdit

Hello,

Beginning in September 2017, the Wikimedia Foundation Anti-harassment tool team will be conducting a survey to gauge how well tools, training, and information exists to assist English Wikipedia administrators in recognizing and mitigating things like sockpuppetry, vandalism, and harassment.

The survey should only take 5 minutes, and your individual response will not be made public. This survey will be integral for our team to determine how to better support administrators.

To take the survey sign up here and we will send you a link to the form.

Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.

Best regards, Oleg

Hi Mysid,

I've come across your map of Bangladesh recently. Great work on it. I then realised from your profile page that you have done a few of them!

I'm currently studying Architecture at university and I'm doing a project on Bangladesh where I also have to create maps. For the life of me, I cannot find any topographic information as detailed as the maps you have created for Bangladesh as the country is pretty flat. You still have different patterns for the major part of Bangladesh. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing with me how you got there. What data have you used?

Also, how did you get it to output vector and in svg format? I am using ArcGis and I don't seem to be able to anything like the level of detail you have gone into. I would be super interested in learning more if you have the time.

Kind regards, Tom — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tompouce4 (talkcontribs) 00:17, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

## Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Maersk Oil logo.svgEdit

Thank you for uploading File:Maersk Oil logo.svg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator seven days after the file was tagged in accordance with section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.
