RNZAF infobox[edit]

Hi, The documentation for Template:Infobox military unit specifies that the allegiance field is to be "used to indicate the allegiance of units which are not part of the regular armed forces of a sovereign state; can usually be omitted otherwise". As such, it's not suitable to use it in this context. Regards, Nick-D (talk) 22:02, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

@Nick-D: well, the articles for many of Her Majesty's other armed forces around the world appear to not follow that policy. Several republican articles also appear not to, such as the USAF bearing allegiance to the American Constitution, the Bangladeshi Air Force bearing allegiance to the People's Republic, and several others. I would suggest the interpretation of what the allegiance section is for is ambiguous. Fry1989 eh? 23:03, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

File:Charter of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) logo.svg[edit]

Hello, you have tagged the image I have uploaded as a candidate to be moved to Commons. However, I have uploaded it as a fair-use non-free image. It can't be accepted onto Commons under that license.

I followed the example of zh.wikipedia in determining the copyright status. However, it might pass Template:PD-PRC-exempt (cf. File:National Emblem of the People's Republic of China.svg) - I don't have the expertise to determine this. The issue of license should be resolved before moving to Commons is possible.

Nevermind, File:中国人民政治协商会议.png already exists under the license I've described. I have updated the license of File:Charter of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) logo.svg accordingly to give it an all-clear for Commons.

Belarus[edit]

Colleague, don't change National Emblem of Belarus in any articles, please. This is very impertinently to change it in Belorussian Wikipedia firstly and secondly I'm a citizen of this country and I can reassure you this emblem is legal now from 2012. --Einimi (talk) 18:51, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Einimi, if you do not provide a proper source for your change in image, I will have to request your changes be reverted by an administrator. Fry1989 eh? 19:03, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
I've provided. There is an official site page in the article about the emblem. You can watch it. And I have a counter request: why did you changed it in ALL Wikipedias? If you don't agree here so change it here, but not in others. --Einimi (talk) 19:06, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

RMS Queen Mary 2[edit]

Hello, I reverted you Blue Ensign for RMS Queen Mary 2 to the undefaced Red Ensign. She is a Royal Mail Ship but the Blue Ensign is flown only when a member of the Royal Navy Reserve is her master. Presently, the only Cunard captain who has this Blue Ensign privilege is Christopher Wells and therefore it flies only when he is in command of the vessel. When Captain Kevin Oprey or Commodore Christopher Rynd are in command the Red Ensign is flown. Blue Riband► 18:14, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

Non-free image on Commons?[edit]

File:Namibian Navy Flag.jpg - Erm? Sfan00 IMG (talk) 18:43, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

What is your reason to believe it is non-free? I disagree. Fry1989 eh? 19:36, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

DIREKTOR/Director's problem[edit]

Director seems to think he can continually revert edits angrily with no regard for consensus and the widespread use of some of his images (see: his Nazi-related insignia); how should we best handle this? I've been going around protecting most of the things he tries to damage from edits for the past few months, such as Template:Nazism and it's sidebar. DasReichenz (talk) 22:46, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Wow. Well, firstly, this is a (very obvious) sock of Dannis243, who's been pushing for Nazi Party symbols in the sidebar for ages. Secondly, I mean - just look at the talkpage. Not only is Dannnis234/DasReichenz ignoring it, and just pushing his change through edit-warring, and that over and over again across months - but he's going against apparent consensus. -- Director (talk) 08:45, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Thanks for your eloquent input on the Canada talk page; on the mark as always. Looks like deletionists aren't just a problem on the Commons, unfortunately. Thanks again! – Illegitimate Barrister, 19:50, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

I believe Barneyuj4 is another sock of User:Barneyuj5 can you add him to the investigation page? – Thanks FOX 52 (talk) 23:03, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

Coat of arms of Pakistan[edit]

As I think, State emblem of Pakistan is not in original color. You must check the color of coat of arms on the official interior ministry, defense ministry websites of Pakistan. Official colour is not #014102. Rather it is #00611c. Color is not dark green, it is light green or parrot-like. Please review it again and make correction in file. Thanks! --Asadwarraich (talk) 14:50, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

The sources for the national flag that I have seen are significantly darker and I have changed the coat of arms to match. Fry1989 eh? 18:52, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
I'm a civil engineering student. Some construction tenders that I saw a few days ago were also comprising of parrot color like coat of arms. Also, an advertisement on the newspaper by Ministry of Interior shows it to be parrot like color, not solid green. Why don't you give me some sources regarding darkness of coat of arms?--Asadwarraich (talk) 12:31, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Official passport of Pakistan also shows the coat of arms to be parrot like color and it is different from your version of coat of arms at Wikipedia. Here are references:
  1. Ref. 1
  2. Ref. 2 This reference is from latest passport.--Asadwarraich (talk) 08:46, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

SORRY again![edit]

Hello,

Sorry about this. I was the one who edited the Flag of Mongolia page. I saw later that you undid this. I did not realise I had done anything wrong, but I am sorry if I stepped on anyone's toes.

Could you please tell me what I did wrong, or why you undid the edit? If it is something I did, then I would like to not do it again. You can help me with this by telling me what I did wrong.

Thank you, for your patience. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dw0391 (talkcontribs) 01:42, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Ughhhh... I'm an idiot, sorry. I forgot a subject/headline. So sorry. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dw0391 (talkcontribs) 01:43, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

@Dw0391:, the two files appear to be the same. If there is a new change you have made, you should upload it onto File:Flag of Mongolia.svg. Fry1989 eh? 16:30, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
@Fry1989: They are certainly similar, but I noticed that the outline around the yin-yang symbol was made by a 'line', and not a 'shape', if you will. With the image as it was, if you resized it in a vector program, the line would still want to be at the same width, and would just get thicker as the image decreased in size (the inverse is also true). So, I made the outline a shape, and if it is resized it will remain at the same size (proportionate to the rest of the image), because it is not a line, but a shape.
Also, I did not realise that you could upload an image over someone else's. I will learn more about this, and try to do it later. Otherwise, I hope this adequately explains my actions. I'm sorry to get you this far involved. I don't mean to bother other people. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dw0391 (talkcontribs) 23:44, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
@Dw0391:, no need to apologise :) If anything I should apologise for my late resposne leaving you hanging. Most files on Commons can be uploaded over and improved, unless they are protected. I don't see File:Flag of Mongolia.svg protected so you should have no problem. Fry1989 eh? 19:04, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
@Fry1989:Thanks. I will try this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dw0391 (talkcontribs) 23:23, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
