More IRC based stuff[edit]

Hey Linus - quick question for the king of the internet. TK wants me to discuss something with him in IRC - first time I've used it, so I've set the client up with Firefox, and logged onto CP's freenode channel. I don't know where to go from there though; it currently reads

SVG support[edit]

Do you know what would be required to support SVG? Wikipedia does -- they list it as their preferred format. When I try to upload here, though, I'm told "".svg" is an unwanted file type...

cp and to templates[edit]

thanks for helping make them work. couple of bugs though. one is that the to one seems to want to move to the left is the second argument is used (see user:human/sandbox2 for example to play with). the other is that using both makes for ugly page parsing (using userboxtop & bottom "fixed" it, but made a box around them that is wider than they are. maybe we should make a copy of userboxtop with less width and call it refboxtop/refboxbottom?). quote mining is a likely place to play with this, or mess with my sandbox if you prefer.

What makes .svg superior to gifs or jpgs? ~~ C®acker 19:06, 10 June 2007 (CDT)

I'm not Linus, but I'll attempt an answer anyway. Short version: it isn't always superior, but for things it's suitable for it's likely to be a smaller size and it can be resized more betterly.
  • gif: bitmap format, limited to 256 colors; some compression, but for a long time was hampered by a claimed patent; supports animation; supports transparency, but as a all-or-nothing thing; browser support is universal; for images with 256 colors or less, lossless; good for simple drawings and diagrams
  • png: bitmap format, intended as a gif replacement; support for more colors; better compression than gif, and apparently un-patented; supports an alpha channel (translucency, not just transparency); except for alpha channel support, browser support is pretty good these days. IE6 didn't support alpha channel, not sure about IE7; lossless; good for drawings and diagrams
  • jpeg: bitmap format, with great but lossy compression; designed for photographs with lots of subtle color variations; variable quality settings; pretty severe artifacts on sudden color changes at most quality settings, so not very suitable for most drawings or charts; technically has multiple compression systems, some of which are patent-encumbered, but nobody uses those; there's a barely-related set of standards 'jpeg 2000' which shouldn't be confused with what's normally called jpeg; browser support is universal
  • svg: vector format; unlike all the others discussed here, the format describes a series of lines or arcs, color fills, text placements, etc; can be resized without any loss at all; an xml-format, so theoretically can be directly embedded in XHTML pages without requiring another document request; text in it can theoretically be indexed by search engines; can be rotated or combined with other images losslessly; for images it's suitable for, is likely to be much smaller than a bitmap, at least after compression; can be compressed with gzip or any other compression scheme designed for text; the image can be manipulated by javascript; images can be styled with CSS, the same as other page features; however most of these benefits are pretty theoretical at this point; browser support is minimal -- very recent versions of Firefox support it directly, I think; it looks like the next version of Safari will as well; other than that, requires a browser plugin. MediaWiki converts automatically to png right now.
--jtltalk 19:35, 10 June 2007 (CDT)
Yes, glad you explained that (although I knew it already). But see the next header below. Linus replaced a perfectly harmless little gif with a giant but identical svg, and what Cracker wanted to know is why is that svg so awesome? Since it was a copied image, the svg functionalities are completely lost anyway. humanbe in 19:42, 10 June 2007 (CDT)

chickenhawk logo?[edit]

Linus, what up? You replaced a 6k gif with a 365k svg, but it's still the same image. Confused here... Compuserve won't sue us! (and the jpg version, strangely, was bigger than the gif)

PS, did you mean to use png? humanbe in 19:11, 10 June 2007 (CDT)
No, I meant to use SVG. SVG should always be used, when possible, it allows the image to be made any size with no loss of quality. ----Linus(plot evil tech) 14:52, 11 June 2007 (CDT)
However, I won't war about it, for that particular purpose, it makes no difference. ----Linus(plot evil tech) 14:57, 11 June 2007 (CDT)
There was one difference - the svg was 60x more kB than the gif. humanbe in 15:04, 11 June 2007 (CDT)
(this indent section written while Linus was adding comment above)That's only if the image starts as an svg so it can contain the proper vector scaling attributes. Simply copying a gif or jpg to svg makes an identical, but much larger filesize, image. If that logo had been made as an svg, yes, the tshirt size version would be just as high quality as the thumbnail. But it wasn't, and you can't go backwards to a vector image from a pixel-by-pixel type file. In this case the image is sixty times larger, but has no higher resolution or scalability.
Also, svg support is spotty at best, making it a worse choice in many instances - especially on the web, where browser support is critical to a format being useful.
Svg is great inside a platform that supports it, but its portability is poor. gif, jpg, and png, used appropriately, are much more web friendly. At least until svg support grows to saturate the market. humanbe in 15:04, 11 June 2007 (CDT)
The way that MediaWiki deals with SVGs is by converting them to bitmaps for display. And even in a converted SVG, the scalability is preserved. Try expanding Image:Chickenhawks.svg to about 4 times the size of Image:Chickenhawks.gif in your sandbox, just as an experiment. There is no lessening in quality. But, as I said, for the application of Chickenhawk, there is no reason to use the SVG, you are right. ----Linus(plot evil tech) 15:11, 11 June 2007 (CDT)
Ah, ok, cool (tried the sandbox thing). I can see the benefits of that under some circumstances, like if the image was PD and tshirts were expected to be made ;) Too bad we don't have a higher resolution "start" file for that logo. I wonder if the original is in layers, bitmapped, and huge, somewhere? I should ask around, it's in my neighborhood. humanbe in 16:01, 11 June 2007 (CDT)
And you can go backwards, if you use tracing software. ----Linus(plot evil tech) 15:15, 11 June 2007 (CDT)
Good point. By the way, I have no program on my computers that can open an svg. I certainly have no tracing software. Now, if you had been able to create a "true" svg out of that gif, that would have kicked ass (for the tshirts). If I had been able to download it, at least. PS, what is unicode, anyway? humanbe in 15:21, 11 June 2007 (CDT)
Unicode is the codec for producing (generally) non-standard characters. It encodes Latin, accented Latin, Greek , Cryllic, Chinese, etc. And Inkscape is an excellent vector program. Traces, opens, edits, saves, exports… ----Linus(plot evil tech) 15:28, 11 June 2007 (CDT)

namespaces[edit]

Any chance you can add "recipe:" and "ACD:"? People are already using the right format... oh, yeah, that's right, the articles won't automatically end up in the namespace unless they get renamed twice, right? I remember Trent fighting with this on the essay & cp namespaces. Might be to much trouble. Just an idea....

Can't access ACD[edit]

For some reason, whenever I try to get to any of the ACD pages, or the talk pages to them, it just takes me to a blank page of that name. Even just clicking on the links in the "Recent Changes" section does the same thing. Is it just me, or a site-wide thing? --Kels 11:47, 12 June 2007 (CDT)

You're right...something is all fucked up.--PalMD-yada yada 12:30, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
It's site wide. Unfortunately, when a new namespace is created, all preexistent pages in it get "deleted". It's all fixed now, but if we want to implement those namespaces, we need to move all the articles out of them. Should I create "Temp:" or something like that? ----Linus(plot evil tech) 12:47, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Linus, if you're willing to do the work (or direct an ignorent slave like me what to do), by all means, git er done. I tend to keep late hours (EST, anyway), so if you need a bunch of moving/deleting prior to namespace creation, I can do it when it won't interfere with "most" people's lunch/evening browsing. Screw the antipodians! humanbe in 13:52, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Okay, I'll create "Temp" and "Temp talk", as, what else, temporary storage. Then we can begin mass-moving things. Actually, I think there is mass-move functionality, I'll check into it. ----Linus(plot evil tech) 14:18, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Nope, I think I was wrong. Okay, let's start. I might have to stop, however briefly, to work, but if others could help Human besides myself, I would greatly appreciate it. ----Linus(plot evil tech) 14:22, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Cool... And we don't have to worry about links, right? Since the article names will be identical afterwards? humanbe in 14:23, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Yeah, we'll move them right back after the namespaces are created. And, redirects will be autocreated in the interim. ----Linus(plot evil tech) 14:23, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Okay, start moving. ----Linus(plot evil tech) 14:51, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Is that a warning or an order? And are we doing ACD first? (recipe after?) humanbe in 15:06, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
It's like a friendly suggestion/order. And both can be done simultaneously. ----Linus(plot evil tech) 15:19, 12 June 2007 (CDT)

I'll start at the end of the "alphabet" and meet you in the middle. humanbe in 15:20, 12 June 2007 (CDT)

Looks like they are all moved. I count 33 in "main"; 33 in "Temp". A couple were renamed wrong but that can be fixed in the move after ACD: is created humanbe in 15:33, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Let's do them separately - get ACD all done, then do recipes, k? or we'll get all screwed up. humanbe in 15:35, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
OK, I see ACD is there. Do we just re-rename from temp, or do we have to delete the redirects first? humanbe in 15:40, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Question: Why haven't the ACD: articles disappeared from the mainspace listing? humanbe in 15:47, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Dunno. I'll look at it. For recipe, let's organize a bit better. I'll say how in a minute after I finish what I'm doing off. ----Linus(plot evil tech) 15:49, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
I'll just keep an eye on this page and do whatcha say to do when you say to do it. Cool. humanbe in 15:51, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Okay, I realized that if we simply rename Temp as Recipe in LocalSetting.php, we can avoid a lot of work, if the articles are in the form of Temp:Name, not Temp:Recipe:Name. I'll create temp, and then we'll do as we we did before. ----Linus(plot evil tech) 15:55, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Got it. I'll start moving as soon as I see Temp again. I'll start at the end of the list again. humanbe in 15:57, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
I think I know why nothign disappeared for the namespace - we have to delete the redirects after they are moved to temp. Is that right? We might have to do ACD again :) humanbe in 15:59, 12 June 2007 (CDT)

All moved, recipe to temp. Now we must delete the redirects! humanbe in 16:15, 12 June 2007 (CDT)

Linus, if you rename temp to the new space BEFORE we delete the redirects, all our work is in vain - the articles still get listed in the mainspace. Can you rename recipe to recipetemp, same for ACD, and then when they are safely there, and not visible on the mainspace, we must delete the mainspace versions. THEN rename the spaces to recipe & ACD. Does this make sense? humanbe in 16:21, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
That's a bug I'll have to report. But carry on, I've restored temp for recipe. ----Linus(plot evil tech) 16:32, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
OK. So the recipes are in temp again? I will delete all the recipes from the mainspace, after a single instance test. Then I will report here that they are gone, so you cna rename temp to recipe. humanbe in 16:36, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Golden. All recipes in temp, all deleted from main. I think you can rename temp now. Then tell me when we are ready to do ACD... humanbe in 16:42, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Now. The awesome thing about the namespace system is the names are tied to numbers, so they're fully variable without much trouble. ----Linus(plot evil tech) 16:44, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
Dude, have you consulted Flippin about the alphabet. He had the whole series back on CP in the day. 192.149.13.10 16:17, 12 June 2007 (CDT)
