Hello Hazmat2, thank you so much for creating File:Heart_icon.svg for WikiLove. After comparing it with the current icon, I was wondering if you could make one small change: Could you make the inner white outline slightly thinner and closer to the edges of the heart?

Illustration Workshop Top 4[edit]

Great job solving the weave patterns! Jon C (talk) 05:53, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! Though that tartan pattern was... interesting. Up close you realize the entire image was one pattern rather than four which meant it took longer than expected to do. Nonetheless, fun as always. The Haz talk 12:20, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Hey Hazmat, I was wondering if you know if there is any way to make an svg sharper/clearer? Setanta Saki (talk) 09:04, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Well, technically, an SVG is already as sharp as you need it, and already sharper and clearer than anything else. However, WP's engine converts this to PNG before the user's browser even sees it and doesn't do the greatest job with it either. I upload perfectly coded SVGs only to have them completely screwed up by WP.
However,with that said, I believe the WP rendering engine does follow the shape-rendering properties, so if you add:
style="shape-rendering:crispEdges" or style="shape-rendering:auto"
to each path or shape tag in your SVG file that you need sharper, you should get some better results. I haven't tried this myself because I haven't needed it yet. Let me know how it works out for you! The Haz talk 14:58, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Cheers for that that info Haz appreciate it, Im only a svg novice really not very au fait with altering paths but i'll try look up how exactly to do it to give it a go :) Setanta Saki (talk) 19:51, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
No worries. Most of us are amateurs as well. You can open the file in any plain text editor. I suggest that if it's a big file you use Notepad++. It'll make reading/editing it easier. SVG is reading XML or if you've ever worked with HTML. The Haz talk 03:06, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, good advice to download notepad++, adding code to every path is a bit daunting but might still give a shot if i manage to work up the willpower. Will let you know how it goes if i do. Setanta Saki (talk) 11:07, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
I wouldn't do it by hand. Definitely let the software do it for you, especially since using the find/replace feature should make quick work of it here. The Haz talk 14:18, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Doh! ya that would probably be a good idea :), so if i was trying it with this file File:Arms of Ireland (Alternate).svg which i cant seem to get it to be as punchy as i would like for some reason. I would open it in notepad put in xml reading mode and replace what lines exactly with :style="shape-rendering:crispEdges" or style="shape-rendering:auto"?. Also could do with an unbiased opinion of new version versus the old File:Coat of arms of Ireland.svg.
First, that SVG looks fantastic. I'm guessing you are referring to the smaller PNGs that get rendered. To answer your question, I would Replace <Path with <Path style="shape-rendering:crispEdges" or something similar to that. It's simple and will keep the remainder of the tag the same. You can also use RegEx in Notepad++ if you need to do something more complex. Also, remember to do the same for shapes (if you need to). The Haz talk 20:38, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for that Haz nice to get a positive second opinion and cheers for the step by step guide on the code front, must try learn a bit more about it. Setanta Saki (talk) 12:10, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Haz do you know any editors, (or yourself) who can Archive some stuff on the Graphics Lab. - We've got things dating back to December - Thanks FOX 52 (talk) 05:23, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Usually someone runs an archive bot on it. I would just check the history to see which bot and ask the owner. I assumed they ran automatically but I'm not sure. I've never archived anything there. The Haz talk 13:07, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
Ok will do, Thanks again - FOX 52 (talk) 15:03, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Canadian Space Agency Coat of Arms.png[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Canadian Space Agency Coat of Arms.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. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:46, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Category:SVG logos associated with health care[edit]

Category:SVG logos associated with health care, which you created, has been nominated for possible deletion, merging, or renaming.

Removal of merge tags[edit]

Here/here you removed the tags for the proposed merger of these two articles, without explaining why. There was an open discussion on the linked talkpage (Talk:Prenatal_nutrition#Merger proposal) that was not closed. If you are seeing a consensus there against merger and using that as the basis for untagging, please close the discussion with a note to that effect. But the discussion seems noticeably for the merger, in which case I (as a participant) dispute your closure(-like action). Please let me know the situation so I can figure out how to proceed. DMacks (talk) 03:36, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

@DMacks: At the time, the articles had differentiated more since the original merge request. And, since merge requests are time sensitive I was asked to delete the request (I regret not having the time to carry it out once my schedule changed). Nonetheless, I still believe they should be merged. Please feel free to open the request again and go ahead with the merge. However, due to my schedule I don't really have time to do more than some minor editing at the moment. The Haz talk 12:18, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

Vodou vs Voodoo[edit]

When referring to the Haitian variant of Vodun, it is spelled Vodou, not Voodoo. Omo Obatalá (talk) 18:14, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Space transport[edit]

Am attempting to find name for article that will show up on both google and yahoo. Will clean up duplicates when I have an answer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:03, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

This is something that would warrant a larger discussion. Your edits are essentially test edits and shouldn't be done in an article space. I suggest you register for a username and try it in your own sandbox or use the talk page of Space transport to discuss a change such as this. The Haz talk 05:09, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Shanghai history edit[edit]

I don't understand why you reverted my edit. It was clearly not a test edit. (talk) 06:54, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Single-click mistake that I already reverted. The Haz talk 06:59, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

January 2015[edit]

How is this vandalism?[edit]

How is this vandalism? It should be reverted as a good faith edit more than vandalism, and your revert has caused damage to some of the things that are written there. Thanks, Nahnah4 (talk | contribs | guestbook) 12:33, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Strange. That's a huge edit under my name. First, the edit you are referring to isn't vandalism and I didn't mark it as such so there's no need to worry about that. Second, I didn't make--and wouldn't have made--those changes to that article. I did do the disambiguation, but I wonder if some wires got crossed somewhere. I'll have to look into it later.The Haz talk 14:02, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
I fixed it the best I could by combining the page before that deletion with the changes since then. I hope you'll find this acceptable. More importantly, thank you for bringing this to my attention. I'm still not sure what happened there. The Haz talk 18:05, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks For Introducing Five Pillars of Wikipedia[edit]

Hello Hazmat2, Priyanka this side and thanks for introducing those 5 Wikipedia pillars to me, actually i did some editing on the Necktie page under Skinny Tie section but you reverted it back :( . Was that information not fine for skinny ties and for their latest trends. I would glad if you can give me some light on this or if my editing needs some modifications, Please advice!!!. Thank you for the support. (talk) 07:17, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Welcome! You might have noticed that I linked to WP:PEACOCK in the revert notice. Simply put, information added should be neutral and not use puffery. Also, make sure the (reliable) source you add covers the information you add completely. WP:CITE The Haz talk

Yaa..i read that too after seeing those 5 pillars. And that matter i took from that source only, that's why i put that into reference. OK no issues :) just tell me if i do some modifications and make it little more useful then are there any chances to see that edit in the page. Or, if you want to edit it from your end which you think can be fine and not puffery then you are free to edit it as well. What say!! (talk) 07:39, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Of course you can edit! Since you were adding a few sentences, I thought you should know how WP works and why some things are welcome and others aren't. Consider the difference between these two statements:
  1. These things are fantastic.
  2. A recent editorial in the New York Thymes by an expert in things described them as "fantastic," due to durability and usability. (Reference here)

They are similar but read very differently. One is the author stating it (almost as a fact) while the other is quoting an expert's opinion and giving reasons for why he said so. Opinions are welcome on WP as long as they aren't stated as facts and aren't from the author of a WP article. It's usually preferable to balance the topic too if there are criticisms.

Also, I never looked at your reference to see if it was a reliable one. It was deleted because the text was deleted. I just meant that you should make sure most people would consider it reliable before posting. I hope you enjoy your time here!The Haz talk 19:04, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Boston University edits[edit]

Thanks for your note about the BU "other campuses" edits (Brussels/Dubai); those two closed campuses' sections weren't deleted; just moved them to the bottom of the list. Seems like they should remain in that section (or maybe a new subsection of "other campuses" for historical/closed campuses?) Would appreciate some advice on that. Also looks like some additional references are needed; I can work on digging those up. Purplebelly (talk) 18:02, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Mea culpa. I missed that you put them at the bottom. So, we're on the same page then! The Haz talk 18:42, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
No worries! If you think the language needs to be stronger/clearer on those, feel free to make suggestions. I'm looking for other examples of similar information on other pages. Purplebelly (talk) 18:49, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
First, I'll say I haven't read what you wrote yet as I'm working over in Wikisource on a project at the moment. However, I'm not sure there are many good examples here. Instead of under the same heading as the open campuses, I would put the sections under their own heading under "history" (ie. "Former campuses"). Feel free to try something out in your sandbox before copying it to the article. The Haz talk 20:59, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Nash Equilibrium Page[edit]

Please elaborate how my edits are disruptive. So far I have not been given any reasons as to why that is the case. The reversion of edits seems to have more to do with bruised egos and a need to reaffirm authority more than anything else. (talk) 03:34, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you're referring to. Simply put, your edit was unnecessary and made the formatting slightly worse by choosing that template instead of <math>. I don't normally need to, but since I work with LaTeX on other projects, I checked your edit and the previous version to be sure. The Haz talk 03:41, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
