Asian Organizations SVG[edit]

Thanks for your Asian Organizations SVG. I think you should include the Arab League, even though it has also African members. I tried adding it myself, but my SVG skills are nowhere near what is needed (I use inkscape). If you are ambitious, you may want to add the organization of the Islamic conference. Samfreed (talk) 10:28, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

It's a diagram of Asian organizations, so I don't think it should include any organization with members outside Asia, to prevent it from turning into "Supranational Global Bodies". There is already a template for a number of Islamic organizations. SiBr4 (talk) 10:52, 30 May 2014 (UTC)


I know this is the English spoken Wikpedia, but I'd like to point you out to a nother discussion about the flag of the Isle of Man. It is on the Dutch spoken Wikipedia, but in English. See on Frys discussion page there. Dqfn13 (talk) 20:25, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the link, I wouldn't have expected a discussion on the Dutch WP since Fry isn't Dutch (though I am). In that discussion it seems pretty clear that at least three more users support the circularly centered version. I'll start an RfC about the issue on Commons. SiBr4 (talk) 20:52, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
It's because he used global replace, causing some warnings on IRC. Four admins have taken action... so he has caused some mayor problems. Dqfn13 (talk) 15:49, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Help for a template[edit]

Hello again! Do you remember me? I am Xaris333 from Greek Wikipedia. You helped me with a template. I need your help again, if you have time... Xaris333 (talk) 18:22, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

You may ask it, but I'm kind of busy right now and may respond either tonight or tomorrow CEST (I don't know how difficult your question is). SiBr4 (talk) 18:37, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

When ever you can! The template is el:Πρότυπο:Κουτί πληροφοριών ποδοσφαιρικής περιόδου πρωταθλήματος. It's about football league season. It has english parameter.

  1. I want prevseason and nextseason to be shown after a line. Then I want another line and to have advanced_level and lower_level. Show de:First Division (Zypern) 2013/14 for example.
  2. In the header Άνοδος/Υποβιβασμός (promoted/relegated) I want if the parameter of promoted is completed (but the relegated is not) to show in the header only Άνοδος. If only relagated is completed, to show only Υποβιβασμός. If are both completed, to show Άνοδος/Υποβιβασμός. Xaris333 (talk) 19:13, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
  1. On the German WP, the infobox de:Vorlage:Infobox Fußballsaison directly contains a table. The horizontal line above some fields is made by giving the cells containing the previous/next season and lower-division season data a border using style="border-top:1px solid grey;". The Greek WP infobox transcludes the general el:Template:Infobox3cols, which allows for CSS like that by filling in parameters, like I've done here.
  2. That could be done by a series of embedded {{#if}} cases, though I have done what I think is easiest. Using {{#if}} cases it creates a two-digit code where "1" means "defined" and "0" means "not defined", and chooses a header for each possible combination (11 if both are defined, 10 for "Άνοδος" only, etc.).
Please let me know whether both edits do what you wanted (I created a user sandbox specifically for the second :) ). SiBr4 (talk) 21:37, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much!! The second edit is excactly what I wanted! The first has a proble. Look, the example at el:Πρότυπο:Κουτί πληροφοριών ποδοσφαιρικής περιόδου πρωταθλήματος. The lower-division came near previous season. I want it to be under of previous and next season, with a line between them. If it is possible. And maybe previous season and next season be on different line, like german one. If it is difficult, I will juct remove the lower-division parameter. Xaris333 (talk) 21:48, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

I previously didn't even see the lower-division link since it's stuck to the previous-season link, so I assumed the example in the documentation didn't contain the lower/higher divisions at all! I have now put the lower/higher-division links on a separate line (it's actually a hack since the standard infobox doesn't support a second below row) and added some conditional stuff to remove the horizontal rules if some season link parameters are not defined.

Thx for everything!! Xaris333 (talk) 22:35, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello. There is a problem with the template. See el:Β΄ κατηγορία ποδοσφαίρου ανδρών Κύπρου 2006-07. "Γ΄ κατηγορία 2006–07 ↓" and "Α΄ κατηγορία 2006–07 ↑". One of them must go to the left and the other to the right, like "← Β΄ κατηγορία 2005–06" and "Β΄ κατηγορία 2007–08 →" above. Xaris333 (talk) 20:55, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

@Xaris333: As I understand it this is what you want. SiBr4 (talk) 21:35, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Yes! Is it possible to have a line after "Κύπελλο Κύπρου 2006-07" (between "domest_cup" and "prevseason")? Xaris333 (talk) 21:42, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

And there is a big problem: "| belowstyle = border-top:1px solid grey; }}" is in every article!! Xaris333 (talk) 21:45, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Many thanks!!! Xaris333 (talk) 21:58, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

(edit conflict) That should now be fixed. I miscounted the curly brackets with my previous edit. Would that be troutworthy?
As for the "Κύπελλο Κύπρου 2006-07" – the horizontal rule didn't show because it was supposed to be added by the "border-top:1px solid grey;" CSS which wasn't applied because of the same bracket mismatch. It is now back. SiBr4 (talk) 22:00, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

The template is el:Πρότυπο:Football teams/Κατάλογος ομάδων and the category is el:Κατηγορία:Πρότυπο:Football teams για ομάδα που δεν υπάρχει στον κατάλογο. I tried to do what you said but maybe I write it wrong. Xaris333 (talk) 18:29, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

I have replied at WP:VPT. With highly active discussions like the one there, I keep monitoring the page history, so there's actually no point in continuing the discussion on my talk page except hiding it for others watching the VPT. SiBr4 (talk) 18:45, 5 July 2014 (UTC)


I have a request. Can you help me change File:木棉花旗.jpeg (flag of kapok) to SVG ? The flag used by the movement for an independent Cantonia (a.k.a. "Cantonian sovereigntists"),Source &author are "Republic of Cantonia Provisional Government". Thank you so much.--DannyChan (talk) 11:14, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

infobox template[edit]

Hello. Can you help me? I copied english infobox country template to this incubator template but it doesn't seem like english wikipedia for example you can look this. thank you Ceas08 (talk) 21:57, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

@Ceas08: It's the code class="infobox geography vcard". The CSS class infobox is defined on EnWP to apply the styling border: 1px solid #aaa; background-color: #f9f9f9;" (light grey background, darker grey border). Incubator's central CSS page does not include this definition, so the infobox shows the HTML default of transparent background and no border. To make the infobox there look like the ones here the border: 1px solid #aaa; background-color: #f9f9f9;" styling should be added to the style="..." parameter of the table tag on the template itself. SiBr4 (talk) 22:38, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
There is actually a lot more automatic styling of infoboxes on MediaWiki:Common.css, including some for geography infoboxes specifically (the grey borders between the rows, for example). Another way to test infoboxes is to copy some of EnWP's CSS rules to incubator:User:Ceas08/common.css, though this will change the appearance for you only. SiBr4 (talk) 22:48, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
It works. Thank you. Ceas08 (talk) 01:06, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Nuvola flags[edit]

Nuvola Hong Kong flag 1959.svg

Hello. Can you help me? make a Nuvola flags of Hong Kong.File:Flag of Hong Kong (1959-1997 3-5).svg--DannyChan (talk) 14:46, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

@DannyChan: Done. See file to the right. SiBr4 (talk) 16:27, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
It is nice. thank you !DannyChan (talk) 06:32, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Excuse me.It is extra help.Can you help to write SVG for Flag of Great Castle Peak Empire? And the png file is Here.thanks you.DannyChan (talk) 13:41, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
@DannyChan: Now that is a harder file to vectorize. I don't think it's possible to create an accurate SVG version unless you can find a higher-resolution raster image or a suitable template file for the crown (for example here). SiBr4 (talk) 22:53, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
File:Imperial Crown Heraldry.svg is nice .thanks.DannyChan (talk) 04:35, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
