SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) images are a little different than other file formats. You can't just take an image like a PNG and save it as a svg, that would defeat the point. Basically a SVG is actually an image built out of a bunch of shapes, paths, colors, effects, and such. As a result, unlike any other file format like .png you can scale a SVG file up to infinite proportions without loosing a single bit of quality. We use them for simple icons because it means we can get any size version of that symbol without worrying about quality or how clear the image is. Not only that, but because it is drawn by ourselves we can use it under a free license rather than under a fuzzy fair use rationale. Symbols are a bit of a different case use than other images.
Radaghast used to do our svg images, like Image:Mist Village Logo.svg but he doesn't appear to be around anymore. Oh well, yukigakure's symbol looks insanely simple, just gimme a bit to get insckape running on my new machine and I'll make a .svg. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) current discussion Dec 7, 2008 @ 00:36 (UTC)
- Erm, scratch that, you just should have actually looked to see if we had the icon or not. Image:Yukigakure Symbol.svg already exists. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) current discussion Dec 7, 2008 @ 00:39 (UTC)
Please do not upload images with false copyright info. Naruto images are not public domain, they are copyrighted by the creators of the series and can only be used under fair use. No other license or tag is valid. Fair use images should also be accompanied by a rationale, please look over our image policy. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Dec 8, 2008 @ 21:34 (UTC)
Shinsaku, the ranks portion of an infobox is only for offical ranks. Please do not tag any characters with potential ranks, they are not citeable and do not belong in the infobox. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Dec 19, 2008 @ 00:34 (UTC)
Shinsaku could you avoid editing templates like Template:Infobox/Character/Voice, they aren't local to this wiki, they are synced from the Animepedia. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Jan 19, 2009 @ 00:21 (UTC)
