Flag of Abkhazia[edit]

Hey there! I created this account just for me to leave this message, since I always edit articles using my IP. Using an advanced vectorizer program, I converted the official flag found at to SVG, but I have no idea on how to upload that picture. If you can update it, please, do it using the SVG you'll find at Thanks for reading. I admire your work =)--Artur.q (talk) 16:39, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. I will update the file for you. Fry1989 eh? 16:54, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Serbian naval ensign[edit]

By all means, take it to DR if you wish. I would love the opportunity to publicly address you're phantom "consensus" between you and User:Zoupan I guess(?), since no one else seems to really care either way. What I know exists in the form of reliable sources: [1], [2], [3], which is actually what really matters on Wikipedia, not your personal feelings and beliefs. Sorry for sounding snarky but you (an experienced editor) should know this by now. Buttons (talk) 03:11, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

My response. Buttons (talk) 00:43, 5 February 2014 (UTC)


Why do you keep pushing an incorrect image of the Dutch CoA? You don't even know the Dutch heraldic rules! Just to summarice what's wrong with Sodacans image:

  1. Claws in front of the escutions: that's now allowed
  2. Wrong colour of the cloak behind the shield
  3. Tinctures are not always the same in one CoA.

Now give me some very good reasons why we shoul place a wrong CoA, as you gave the reason Sodacans is "superior" even though both are vector images. Dqfn13 (talk) 09:08, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

I don't have to give you ANY reasons with that attitude. Sodacan's file is a very good work and it matches the blazon perfectly, they are a heraldic expert too. You are basically removing it because you "don't like it". That's hardly a valid reason. Fry1989 eh? 16:38, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
I'm sorry, to read you accuse me of vandalism. The CoA is incorrect with the claws in front of the escution. I'm also sorry you don't read my reasons and you don't want to discuss with me. Dqfn13 (talk) 17:18, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
There is nothing to discuss, you have no sources to back your claims, your disagreement with Sodacon's files is purely a cosmetic issue, you don't like them. Please see Wikipedia:I just don't like it. Because you keep replacing the files I will be forced to seek an intervention. Fry1989 eh? 18:33, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
I've given you reasons, Henk Boelens and one other Dutch editor have backed me up on Commons... you're just ignoring us because you don't care for Dutch heraldic rules as long as the files look nice... Dqfn13 (talk) 18:43, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
You have given claims, you haven't given sources. I am reporting you for edit warring without sources and proper discussion. Fry1989 eh? 18:46, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
What violation? So you're reporting me even though I haven't done anything after your warning? Dqfn13 (talk) 18:55, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Coat of arms of Mauritius[edit]

Hi, i want your help, i want to know why and where should a consensus be reached and who will decide of the choice. Thanks. Kingroyos (talk) 18:19, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

The problem is that you are changing the image for the wrong reasons. You are calling it "fake" when it isn't fake, I and Anonmoos have both been trying to explain to you that it is just a different rendition. The best place to discuss the issue is Talk:Coat of arms of Mauritius, but unless you have a very good reason for changing the images, you may not find a lot of support. What I would suggest is that you take time to read Commons:COA and understand that just because a coat of arms has different shapes that doesn't make it "wrong" or "fake". I understand your desire to have our image as accurate of a replication as possible, but this isn't the right way of doing it. Fry1989 eh? 18:26, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
I understand, yes the reason is to have a COA as accurate as possible and also because it much more beautiful. How should i do it in the right way? Kingroyos (talk) 18:36, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
Answer me please.Kingroyos (talk) 16:43, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
If you want a consensus you need to discuss the matter on the article talk page and gain support. Fry1989 eh? 04:55, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Royal Canadian Air Force ensign[edit]

To clarify, the dear colleague, please strange manipulations file on Wikimedia Commons.

1. 00:02, 3 April 2014‎ CommonsDelinker: "Royal_Canadian_Air_Force_ensign.svg". The file is deleted from Commons party Ronhjones. Reason: Fair use is not allowed on Commons. ([4])
2. [5]
It's the same file? I have not found any history of removal and restoration.

With respect. — Андрей Бондарь (talk) 07:46, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello friend. Yes it is the same file, it was deleted because a user claimed it was copyrighted but this is not true. I made an un-deletion request and it was restored. Thank you for uploading File:Royal Canadian Air Force Ensign.PNG while the SVG file was missing. Fry1989 eh? 16:36, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Undoing my contribution an Comparison of European road signs[edit]

Why undoing the Luxembourg column of road signs? I was working on it! (OK, I'd have put the ″Work in progress″ template). Could you please undo your undoing... Thanks --GilPe (talk) 14:36, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

I apologize, but I felt we should wait until all the signs from Luzembourg are ready. Fry1989 eh? 17:06, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
