Hello! Requesting to have the logo for Portal:Pensacola to be Image:Seal of Pensacola, Florida.png. The added code should be the following:

I'll greatly appreciate it! – TheGridExe (talk) 15:09, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

A fake flag for Portal:Ryukyu[edit]

At Talk:Tomoe#A fake flag and Wikipedia as the epicenter for the spread of false information, I proposed a set of policies that affect the flag icon associated with Portal:Ryukyu. --Nanshu (talk) 12:53, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

I have removed this image for now — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 10:00, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 24 June 2018 (Portal:Chronology)[edit]

The image for Portal:Chronology should be changed from History.gif (History.gif) to Crystal clock.svg (Crystal clock.svg). History.gif is low resolution (28×27px), and is appearing blurred when displayed at a different size. User:GKFXtalk 16:14, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 10 July 2018[edit]

Please, change in Module:Portal/images/e for ["eastern christianity"] the image File:USVA headstone emb-05.svg which is actually called "Russian Othodox cross"[1] (violation of NPOV, because Eastern Christianity is not only Russian Orthodox Church) to File:ICXC NIKA.svg from Template:Eastern-Orthodoxy-stub, which is completely neutral. --Kazimier Lachnovič (talk) 21:04, 10 July 2018 (UTC) Kazimier Lachnovič (talk) 21:04, 10 July 2018 (UTC)


 Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit template-protected}} template. I can see your point that not every church east of the Adriatic is represented by the "Russian Orthodox cross". It's also true that not every version of eastern christianity is orthodox, e.g. Saint Thomas Christian denominations. An orthodox symbol is not neutral in that context. Please gather some consensus at Portal talk:Eastern Christianity flagging it up to all the projects with an interest in the portal. Cabayi (talk) 09:28, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Image edit request on 20 July 2018[edit]

Hello, working Portal:Alieu Ebrima Cham Joof. Would like to add this image for his portal link.

Wassu Stone Cirles shaunamullally 02.jpg

Aliases include: P:Cham Joof and Portal:Cham Joof. Thanks. Senegambianamestudy (talk) 03:45, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

  •  Done. I have added the image for {{Portal|Alieu Ebrima Cham Joof}} and {{Portal|Cham Joof}} (see below). I don't think there is a way to add it for the shortcut P:Cham Joof, as shortcuts typically don't have such an image. North America1000 08:26, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

Portal template creation[edit]

Coat of arms of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.svg

I would like know if some one could please create a portal template for "Portal:Puerto Rico/Did you know-Puerto Rico?". I know that if I tried I would mess it up and therefore, I would appreciate it if some one with the proper experience would take on the task. Thank you in advance. Tony the Marine (talk) 06:06, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

  • Never mind, there is already a template! However it would be nice if a picture of the Coat of arms of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico was added to the portal template. Help anybody? Senegambianamestudy you did such a great job above, maybe you can help in this one. Tony the Marine (talk) 02:29, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
Seems to be there already Portal:Puerto Rico/Did you know-Puerto Rico?--Auric talk 23:31, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the response. What I mean is that when the template is posted on an article, I would like to see the image of the Coat of arms of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico in it, similar to the "Alieu Ebrima Cham Joof" portal in the above section instead of the common portal symbol such as the one in this template:

. That is if it is possible. If not then we'll leave it as is. Tony the Marine (talk) 01:23, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Did you perhaps mean

Template-protected edit request on 16 August 2018[edit]

Can File:8bit-dynamiclist (reversed).gif be removed from Portal:Computer programming? I don't think it's appropriate to be using an animated GIF here. (talk) 20:13, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

 Not done: This isn't the right place to suggest such an edit (either change it directly on the portal page, or open an edit request for the portal), and moreover I don't think that image is being used on the portal. (Or maybe it was already removed?) Enterprisey (talk!) 01:35, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
I think you misunderstand, Enterprisey. It would need to be removed from Module:Portal/images/c and the request is being made here per WP:TALKCENT. (talk) 03:31, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
 Not done: The project selected this icon for themselves at Portal_talk:Computer_programming#Logo_image_scrolling_backwards. Please establish a consensus at the relevant project for this alteration before using the {{edit template-protected}} template. —RP88 (talk) 03:13, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
(edit conflict) On what basis is this not a suitable venue, as the centralized talk page for Module:Portal/images/c, the page that requires editing, RP88? WP:TPROT provides, "Editors may request edits to a template-protected page by proposing them on its talk page, using the {{Edit template-protected}} template if necessary to gain attention."
Additionally, the discussion you linked wasn't, in fact, specifically supportive of an animated GIF vis-à-vis a non-animated image (or the default portal image – or any image substantially different from the then-existing one). Rather, it was merely discussing the text would flow in an existing animated GIF, which the closer described as a "trivial" change. If the discussion was to establish consensus on a matter of greater significance than the direction the text flows, I trust it wouldn't have been regarded as "trivial".
Regardless, a discussion there can't override the central consensus reflected in WP:IMAGEPOLICY providing, "Inline animations should be used sparingly". I am sure that no one could describe blanket use on all articles concerning computer programming as being "sparing". (talk) 23:29, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
RP88? (talk) 02:04, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
I'm sorry, were you directing a question at me? As a venue this location is fine, but for a change affecting the entire portal you should establish consensus before requesting a change via {{edit template-protected}} ("...try to get opinions by appropriately notifying any editors who have already worked on the page or a related WikiProject..."). No editor has chimed in with support for your proposed change (admittitly neither has any editor opposed it either) probably because the affected editors are not monitoring this page. You're likely to have better luck establishing consensus for changing the portal icon by starting a discussion at the affected portal (linked above). In the interest of fairness to you, I'll bow out of this discussion, and let another template editor respond to any future edit protected request on this subject. —RP88 (talk) 06:03, 23 August 2018 (UTC)


Please kindly add File:Wooden rice mortar 3.jpg to Portal:Gullah and Portal:Gullah people. Many thanks. Senegambianamestudy (talk) 23:25, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Whilst I'm here, I might as well report an issue I came upon the other day. Portal:Serer people is linked to this file (File:Serer Religious Ceremony.jpg) but its alias Portal:Serer has no image (i.e not linked to any image). Please kindly add File:Serer Religious Ceremony.jpg to Portal:Serer. Thanks Senegambianamestudy (talk) 11:50, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
