Greater version of the Belgian coat of arms[edit]

Better-looking lion (another sodacan piece, from Danish heraldry)?

Hi. Yes, the "sodacannic" style does look nice in general. But I'm not sure whether the new version of this file in total looks any better (at the moment): the size of the flags and banners at the top in relation to the mantling looks a bit disproportionate IMO. The ideal thing would probably be to make a fully-fledged sodacannic version of the mantling from the old version (it's exact shape). Furthermore, a couple of details actually aren't in line with the blazon: the lions are supposed to be proper, not Or. And the compartment should be a pedestal, not the motto itself.

I also don't see why the shield shape used in Sodacan's UK heraldry would be a very natural choice here (though I support the right to choose any shield shape in heraldry). The shields displayed on the flags should at least have the same shape as the one held by the supporters in the middle. The lion that is copied from the scottish quartering of the UK CoA does of course look great in that particular, characteristic quartering, but would you agree with me that the lion shown to the right here looks better as the sole centrepiece of a shield?

Thanks for giving me a notice about your revision. The sodacannic style can clearly represent an improvement and I'm sure all the issues can be easily fixed. - SSJ t 01:41, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Another tip: the flag poles and flag shape used here. And as I'm sure you've noticed, the belgian tricolour split banner needs shades. - SSJ t 01:47, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Renewing Family Arms[edit]

Hi!

My name is Jacob, and I come from the Russian Royal Family of Babanin.

I wanted to ask you to renew the family arms of our from what already we have in wikipedia commons:

Babaniny 10-29.jpg

You can use the old photo for source, and the Russian crests encyclopedia: http://gerbovnik.ru/arms/1439.html

You can see the description of the arms is on the page of Babanin in wikipedia.

Thank you very much, -- Jacob a.k.a. Moto53|Talk to me!Isr-star-flag.png 11:31, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

Empire of Brazil[edit]

Hi, Adelbrecht. I saw in yout user page that you share an... interest in the Empire of Brazil. I created a page in the WikiProject Former countries to gather all editors willing to contribute. You don't need to be an expertise in the subject. If you could help by reviewing articles, taking part on discussions, giving ideas, etc... would be great. Here is the link: Wikipedia:WikiProject Former countries/Empire of Brazil task force. Regards, --Lecen (talk) 02:51, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Adelbrecht, would you please be able to take this request in the Wikipedia Graphic Lab? It's been there for over a month, and nobody seems interested. I would be very greatful if you could do it for me. Fry1989 eh? 18:55, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Thanks so much. Just one small request: for the Missouri House seal, could you put in the Missouri coat of arms like they are in File:Seal of Missouri.svg, as you did with the Senate seal? Obviously, the House seal's arch of stars are in red, but other then that small difference, I think it would look best if they had identical arms as the State Seal. Still, I thank you alot for taking my reqeust :) Fry1989' eh? 22:10, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
Hmm, Flickr must be acting odd for you. Here's the image, I was able to download it and upload it to imgur http://i.imgur.com/NgIGm.jpg Fry1989 eh? 17:01, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! :) Fry1989 eh? 17:34, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

Arms of the Scottish Realm[edit]

Hi adelbrecht, thanks for your nice work on the "LABEL" article, and your interest in the Talbot lion. I am researching a new article - User:Stephen2nd/Arms of the Realm of Scotland - I have found 14 out of 17 images of these arms, each of which needs an Earls coronet, or crown, fitted onto the sheild. Would you be interested in creating the three missing arms, re-designing? the Angus arms, and giving them all coronets? Ta Steve. Stephen2nd (talk) 15:19, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Arms of the British Hong Kong[edit]

Hello, are you German, Ich kann auch Deutsch, 6 Jahre zuvor studierte ich in BW.~ I have saw your message with Sodacan, however for times I didn;t still received his artwork for British Hong Kong Emblem, is it possible that you can finish this artwork??~

Miguillen is causing problems again[edit]

Considering you have also had problems with this user and Spanish heraldry, if I were to open some sort of Admin's Noticeboard regarding his edit warring to stop the use of the better renditions and his sourceless claims they're somehow "wrong", would you support it? Fry1989 eh? 21:29, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. He reverted the article twice, so I have asked an admin to revert his changes because he replied on the talk page, but not with any sources, just the same old "they're pretty, but that doesn't make them right" that we have all heard before. I've also put in a CommonsDelinker request to replace many of the old files with the better renditions automatically. Next time he reverts things, I'll figure out the right noticeboard to open something regarding him, and I'll let message you where it is so you can comment. I know we have had issues at times ourselves, but I really appreciate your willingness to support me as we both have the same problem with the user. Fry1989 eh? 22:25, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Hey Adelbrecht

I'm sending you this because you've made quite a few edits to the template namespace in the past couple of months. If I've got this wrong, or if I haven't but you're not interested in my request, don't worry; this is the only notice I'm sending out on the subject :).

So, as you know (or should know - we sent out a centralnotice and several watchlist notices) we're planning to deploy the VisualEditor on Monday, 1 July, as the default editor. For those of us who prefer markup editing, fear not; we'll still be able to use the markup editor, which isn't going anywhere.

What's important here, though, is that the VisualEditor features an interactive template inspector; you click an icon on a template and it shows you the parameters, the contents of those fields, and human-readable parameter names, along with descriptions of what each parameter does. Personally, I find this pretty awesome, and from Monday it's going to be heavily used, since, as said, the VisualEditor will become the default.

The thing that generates the human-readable names and descriptions is a small JSON data structure, loaded through an extension called TemplateData. I'm reaching out to you in the hopes that you'd be willing and able to put some time into adding TemplateData to high-profile templates. It's pretty easy to understand (heck, if I can write it, anyone can) and you can find a guide here, along with a list of prominent templates, although I suspect we can all hazard a guess as to high-profile templates that would benefit from this. Hopefully you're willing to give it a try; the more TemplateData sections get added, the better the interface can be. If you run into any problems, drop a note on the Feedback page.

Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 21:10, 28 June 2013 (UTC)


File:Canon-choir.PNG[edit]

Hello: Actuatlly this was an own-work created after doing a "Google" picture search for "Roman Catholic Canon." They appear more frequent in Europe. Sometimes you can look for "Roman Catholic religious processsions" and you may catch a glimpse of a Canon in dress. THX for the question Jlivewell (talk) 13:29, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

I think I found your source. This page right here :D Adelbrecht (talk) 09:57, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
You are exactly correct. Jlivewell (talk) 13:29, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
