Adobe Flash[edit]

I completely overhauled the Adobe Flash article. Thought you'd like to know since you're one of the few WP'dians I know, who are active in the Flash space.

Lots of fleshing-out, rewrites, cleaning up, reorganizing, etc.

50+ consecutive revisions later, you have the following heavily improved sections... (mostly existing content rewritten)

...and the following heavily expanded / fleshed-out sections: (mostly new content)

And the revisions:

Orphaned non-free image File:Sony Vegas Pro v11.0 icon.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Sony Vegas Pro v11.0 icon.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 04:40, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

What is WP:NFCC#3?[edit]

Hi, thanks for reminding me about the Wikipedia rule. You have reverted my contribution on the Opera browser screenshot, and tagged "WP:NFCC#3". However, I do not understand what is WP:NFCC#3 as I'm still quite new to Wikipedia. Can you please explain it to me so that I can comply to it next time?
Thank you very much. :)
Cheers,

Hello, Lim2. Glad to see you drop by.
First, a point about Wikipedia shortcuts: Words in all caps that start with "WP:" are shortcuts. If you type them into the search box and press Enter key, or type them in the browser address bar right after "en.wikipedia.org/wiki/", you will reach their destination. In this example, WP:NFCC#3 will take you to the clause #3 of Wikipedia:Non-free content criteria policy. I think you should study it.
Now, most Wikipedia rules are easy to bend, finesse or negotiate with. NFCC is an exception: It is extremely stringent. If you look at the upload history of File:Opera Web Browser.png (at the bottom of its page), you see that every time someone uploaded a full resolution screenshot, another human or a bot called "Theo's Little Bot" has reduced their size. That is because Opera's screenshots are non-free.
Best regards,
Codename Lisa (talk) 18:20, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for answering. I wonder is there some way to reduce the resolution. Is it possible in a simple program like "Paint"?
Cheers,
Lim2 (talk) 11:49, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes. Microsoft Paint can do that.
BTW, I use ShareX for all screenshooting needs and IcoFX v1.6.4 (the last freeware version) to capture computer icons. Computer icons need to be at exactly 64×64. But the size of a screenshot can be negotiated.
Best regards,
