Your images of the scientific images without background

Hi, do you have the images (File:ScienceJR-01.jpg and File:Mystery Goo Containment Unit-01.jpg) without that grey background? — xZise [talk] 02:11, 18 October 2013 (CDT)

Oh and File:Comms DTS-M1.jpg too. And yes, jpgs don't allow transparent backgrounds, but then upload it as a png. That is also lossless. — xZise [talk] 03:36, 18 October 2013 (CDT)


I do not have them, but I can make some. I put the grey background in, so I can take it out this time. I can make a png with transparent background.

I am not sure how to use TALK yet. save? publish? answer here or your talk page

ScienceJR-02.png >> Done

Comms_DTS-M1_02.png >> Done ...... did Communotron 88-88.png too

Mystery Goo Containment Unit-02.png >> Done

oh, I dont feel comfortable editing a TEMPLATE, but the Template:Infobox/Part/Antenna needs to include all the NEW specs for the .22 parts.


Packet size

Transmission interval

Total throughput

Okay I don't know where I should answer here ;) So about “how to use talk”: Like any other page, there is no difference. And I don't know where to answer. I usually answer at the original page (e.g. for this conversation here) to have a context. Thank you by the way for uploading the new backgroundless images. About editing the template: I'll take a look later at the specifications of the antennae and determine what makes the most sense, when adding the new properties (especially the units). — xZise [talk] 11:13, 18 October 2013 (CDT)
Oh and I noticed that you added basically the same text at both Comms DTS-M1 and Communotron 88-88. I personally prefer adding general information in the general article (Antenna in this case), so if that changes there is only an error at one place. — xZise [talk] 11:16, 18 October 2013 (CDT)
Okay you uploaded quite a few new images. Thank you :) , but I have a suggestion: You can upload a new version of a already existing thumbnal. When the file type (png) is the same, it saves us both time, as you don't have to update the infobox and part table and I don't need to delete the thumbnail file you updated. — xZise [talk] 03:40, 19 October 2013 (CDT)

All the existing files were jpgs. I did try "Upload a new version of this file", but it said the new and old file names were too similar. I did not try changing the name as I thought it would corrupt the links. Sorry to create extra work for you. ---Dogface (talk) 06:40, 19 October 2013 (CDT)

Are standard users allowed to edit templates? Where should I look for help editing wikis? Is there a manual, a forum, a wiki? ;) ---Dogface (talk) 07:18, 19 October 2013 (CDT)
