Next Oxford meetup[edit]

Hi, I see that Michaelmas Term begins Sunday 13 October. You'll probably be busy that day; shall I schedule the next Oxford meetup for Sunday 20 October or would a different date be better? --Redrose64 (talk) 19:29, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

I've created m:Meetup/Oxford/9 with no date, and a discussion page at m:Talk:Meetup/Oxford/9. --Redrose64 (talk) 15:46, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Typo in File:Thirty Years War involvement graph.svg[edit]

Hello Grandiose, in your uploaded chart is a tiny typo. The country "Bradenburg" should be listed as "Brandenburg". Could you fix this whenever you have some time please? (I have no knowledge in Inkscape myself, so i better keep my hands off). Thank you. GermanJoe (talk) 11:23, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) You don't need to use Inkscape... a plain text editor will do it. Use the editor's text search facility for find the incorrect word - it's in the element <tspan x="92.756752" y="179.97894" id="tspan3593">Bradenburg</tspan> - retype it and save. Unfortunately, I'm unwilling to do this because my editors are Microsoft and insist on converting all the LF characters into CRLF pairs, which adds an extra 847 bytes to the file size. --Redrose64 (talk) 16:49, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
I've done it. Redrose64 is correct to say that usually text will appear in the SVG file directly, but it may not always do so. Where it does not even simple typos can be fiddly to correct. Grandiose (me, talk, contribs) 17:13, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
Thank you both. Didn't know that about .SVG - completely foreign format for me :). GermanJoe (talk) 18:05, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Congratulations![edit]

Russia's Heraldic Council[edit]

Hello. When you wrote the article Russian heraldry, you wrote "[t]he Heraldic Council (translated various ways)". Would you know what Russian name it is translated from? It would be nice to have the Russian name in the article on the Heraldic Council. Arms Jones (talk) 05:48, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
