Verification failed: November 2013[edit]

Hi.

Just checked the source and it is not saying what this template is say. According to the source given, U.S. and Canada are entirely blue.

Best regards,

Why don't you open your eyes and check the DECEMBER values, that's what the image says:

"verification failed" failed, removed.

Rudeness and bad sources do not make a good mix, sir. The links that you have provided also shows the region in question, in blue.
Can anyone else please reproduce the issue?

Good news and bad news. (I'll tell the news and you decide whether it is good or bad.) The first news is that in my browser it does not look blue at all. Maybe you need to bypass your browser's cache or something. The second news is that {{verification failed}} must stay put because here is how it looks in my web browser:

Most of the Africa is using Opera and India is dominated by Iron (web browser). Afghanistan uses Chrome mostly, not Firefox. Fleet Command (talk) 09:14, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
Hi. Actually bypassing was not required; I can pretty much see what your shot shows. The problem is date. I placed {{Verification failed}} when this source was in effect. But on 5 January 2014, a user updated the source. (Gyll didn't notice this change and instead assume that my eyes were the problem.) I did not remove the {{Verification failed}} because I see what you see and although my second sentence is outdated, my first sentence is not and the image still fails verification.
Best regards,

Hi. 1 March 2014. (attn: Palacesblowlittle) Problem still persists:
They don't match, do they? Commons version says the Africa is dominated by Firefox.

Well, if you zoom in, oranges become red! Looks like a good faith attempt but a very bad SVG. Fleet Command (talk) 09:32, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
What browser do you use? I use a Chromium shell. Fleet Command (talk) 09:33, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
You don't say! I can see that too. Apparently, instead of changing the color of the country to red, red blocks are put over them. You can see orange edges too. Okay, I am withdrawing my nomination and removing my tag. I can fix them myself later. Thanks, Fleet. I'd say I owe you one but I'm not the author, so...

I think the problem is you are selecting "Browser Desktop & Mobile" in the source (Statcounter). If you select Desktop only, then you get a result like the Commons version (Africa dominated by orange Firefox). But if you include mobile browsers you get a sea of red in Africa as many are browsing on cheap feature phones which use Opera Mini to compress data usage. Really the caption of the Commons image should specify whether it is referring to desktop browser usage or all browser usage Little Professor (talk) 23:18, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
