Hamming distance images[edit]

Two example distances: 100→011 has distance 3 (red path); 010→111 has distance 2 (blue path)
Two example distances: 0100→1001 has distance 3 (red path); 0110→1110 has distance 1 (blue path)

In these images the description is correct, but the actual hamming distance between any two points is 1! Is this a mistake? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Smellyjellly (talkcontribs) 05:02, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

The distance between two adjacent points is one. The red and blue paths detailed in the first image are not adjacent, so they are greater than one. The blue path in the second image is adjacent therefore it is one. Using the digits as coordinates helps graphically visualize the Hamming distance, but you can see it in the digits themselves: it takes three bit flips to go from 0100 to 1001 and only one bit flip to go from 0110 to 0111.

Joker playing card image[edit]

I've recently been revamping the List of poker hands article and am sorely missing a Joker image for the Five of a kind section. If you found the time to create one (or even two: a red and a black version) to complete your already excellent set of playing cards, that would be rather fantastic. Just a humble request of course; the article will live on without it! (But what kind of a life would that be?) Hpesoj00 (talk) 17:12, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

I have gone and added the jokers myself, as I found the original source material. Please edit them if I have done a poor job. Hpesoj00 (talk) 18:30, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
