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)

Please Stop Changing Coat of Arms[edit]

Please stop attempting to change the Australian Coat of Arms image on the Australia page. The one being used is the official version as approved in 1912 and is the familiar version as used by the government.

See the official 1912 Coat of Arms here:

The alternative version is indeed cartoonish (which is not reason enough to say it shouldn't be used) but aside from it not being as good looking perhaps, the true argument for not using it is that it is not the official version that is used by the govt as the full colour coat of arms and has adorned our passports, citizenship certificates, etc etc.--Saruman-the-white (talk) 02:39, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Unless there is any such consensus not to use an image, you have no right to tell me not to replace one with another. No such consensus exists. Fry1989 eh? 03:36, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

There is no consensus. I am merely stating that you are attempting to replace the picture of the official coat of arms as adopted in 1912 and used on official documents and displayed on Australian government websites as the official coat of arms with an image that is different to the official likeness of the coat of arms as passed in 1912 and is not used in any government documentation. Why would you use the latter? It's a no brainer.--Saruman-the-white (talk) 04:13, 22 May 2014 (UTC)


Here the only thing you vandalizing is not attempting to change flags without any criteria and despite being informed about the error persists. Stop mounted movies and remember that when a change is made and someone disagrees must be discussed before persist and contribute to the debate objective reasons. Although I think the rules are not made ​​for you know neither the philosophy of the project. No one is harassing you because well it was quiet until he has given you to get back to business as usual and I only have limited myself to defend cases as the flag - map of Navarra who see it as a sabotage, changes in official versions of coats of autonomous communities of Spain for other versions or uses of your bot on Wikipedia in Spanish without authorization or bot flag . Think about, think about the reader and compliance and that nobody will reproach . Do not understand how you can expect a sneak flags that simulates a colored coat for absolutely unreal anyway relief. Also as flag maps is not much to ask that of Navarra follow the same criteria as the rest. Regards.--Miguillen (talk) 19:10, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

In secret I never do anything. Only use an account and not to assume you mean with harassment in other projects if harassment think otherwise you account is harassing you just have to ask for a checkuser since then I've only handled one since I registered 8 years ago and whether I edited as IP when you have forgotten me check something rare and I have not done me wrong. Nor have I started any war. Believe it or not I have my ethics and above all work for other people to have good information and good resources not available to satisfy my personal selfishness.

The first thing I would like to reach a reasonable agreement for the two would be to me among other things to make your time on more constructive things. Regards.--Miguillen (talk) 20:06, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Tea and Sympathy[edit]

Meissen-teacup pinkrose01.jpg I read most of Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Archive262#Admin_removing_content and saw your comment, "An admin unilaterally decides that Commons files are "not acceptable", I ask for clarification on why, and when I describe the response I receive as either indirect or cloudy, I get accused of personal attacks, and I also get accused of abusing someone for stating the fact that we do have normal channels and processes for matters like this, instead of unilateral decisions. Yes, I'm the terrible one, I'm the abusive one. What a waste of time trying to find a resolution with those not interested, and then to be mocked for 'not coming to the right page' when I don't know anywhere else I could have brought this to."

I have gone through very similar things. Nikkimaria has been nice to me, but she hasn't been any help at all. When I tried asking her why she reverted my good-faith edits on an Article Talk page, I went into great detail about every change I made, and I asked her opinion on several of those matters. What I got from her is "This should be on the User Talk page". Well, I had tried opening a discussion with her on her User Talk page, but she didn't respond on the topic at either place. Basically, she's done nothing but refer me to essays, more essays, a guideline page, and then some essays.

I also presented her with some pretty hard-core evidence of a certain User repeatedly violating WP:CIVIL, and asked why she didn't try disciplining him. Her response boiled down to "What good would that do?" So I'm thinking she was made an admin on the basis of her ability to cite policies, guidelines, and essays.

Talking to another admin only resulted in ME being put under the microscope, not the flagrantly-abusive User I was complaining about.

All I can say is "Welcome to the NEW Wikipedia!" But be of good cheer: You can always LEAVE! If you ask me, the lunatics are running the asylum, so I may be doing that very thing myself. Ben Culture (talk) 17:16, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

I'll never leave, that would mean they win, though I understand why some made that decision. I thank you for your sympathy. Fry1989 eh? 19:36, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

SVG coat of arms[edit]

Coat of Arms of Margaret, Countess of Snowdon.svg

Hi. Can you create SVG coat of arms like this one? I have heard that you are good in this work. Keivan.fTalk 12:42, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

That depends on what you would like me to create. The image on the right is far too complex for my abilities. Fry1989 eh? 17:06, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
So do you know anyone who can create this kind of coat of arms? (except the creator of this image, Sodacan). Keivan.fTalk 19:53, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
@Keivan.f: You might try commons:user:odder.. he has an account here, but lives over on Commons. Reventtalk 07:10, 3 October 2014 (UTC)


Sir, the Suvadive republic flag is a historical flag. It should be treated with respect and not put upside-down Please help to make the new image of the right flag.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:03, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
