I just restored Padlock.svg in place of 30px. The second image looks horrible with all the black smudges on it. — xaosflux Talk 00:58, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

I'll see if I can do something about that, it's derived from the PNG of the SVG, and IMO better than the erroneously deleted JPG (had no transparency at all) or lock-icon.png. The idea is of course to be almost as good as the SVG, only smaller and visible on more browsers. -- Omniplex 01:32, 22 June 2006 (UTC)
Done, I had to write a macro for my editor working with XPM for 64 colours first. If you have other SVG-to-PNG-to-GIF issues wrt to antialiasing artefacts tell me, but I refuse to tackle icons where more than 64 colours are a MUST. -- Omniplex 11:38, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Downgrade request[edit]

Please replace the SVG by image:lock-icon.gif visible with more browsers, it's smaller and (finally, see above) in acceptable quality. The older versions mentioned by Xaosflux are visible in the image history, in image:lock-icon.png, or lost in an erroneous deletion (that was an utter dubious JPG, good riddance ignoring the policy violation). -- Omniplex 11:46, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Cheers. --MZMcBride 23:57, 9 June 2007 (UTC)


Shouldn't {{pp-semi-vandalism}} be listed, even though it redirects to {{pp-vandalism}}? After all, the redirect shouldn't be followed. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 19:27, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
