AdamStanislav 2017-08-17 19:11:16 My main question would be if the logo itself is in PD. If it is, it matters not that someone somewhere also made an image of the logo, because in that case he does not own the logo, only a specific graphic that happens to use the logo but it can be used here. But if the logo itself is not PD, then it does not belong here no matter what someone else has done with it. So, where does the logo come from? EU government? If so, it should, theoretically, be PD. Some non-governmental organization? Then it probably is not PD.

Perhaps we should now deconstruct the deeper meanings of this clipart: What does it say about the human condition, of modernity, and global warming? ;-)

AdamStanislav 2017-08-17 15:32:03 There is an empty seat right next to the door. So why is he standing, especially given how short he is? And why is he so happy about being so uncomfortable? That is what is puzzling, LOL. The suit is not puzzling. Clean and safe is not puzzling, either. The public transportation in my city is just as clean and safe, and we sit right next to the door (the cars always seem to be empty, so the seats are available).

oksmith 2017-08-17 13:33:28 Puzzling? He has to get off at the next stop so he's standing instead of sitting. He's too short to reach the ring so he is standing on tip-toes. He's happy because the subway in a Japanese city is clean, safe, efficient, and always on time. He's wearing a suit because they all wear suits to work when the weather isn't hot.

anarres 2017-08-16 13:24:59 Yup! I never played it, but I'm pretty sure the players could have their own in-game apartments to decorate however the wanted, and a lot of the stuff I've been posting was the decorations for people's apartments, not really part of the game itself. So there are lots of different styles.

palimpsest 2017-08-10 13:59:54 I enthusiastically support elimination of the option to send a bitmap image for conversion to an svg file. In fact, I did not know this was even an option and always send a vector/svg file. The contamination of this site with unoriginal images (I shudder to use the word "art") should be stopped immediately. I wholeheartedly agree with both @j4p4n, @AdamStyanislav and @oksmith. Please admins, kill the conversion of bitmap to vector option and keep this wonderful site pure.

oksmith 2017-08-10 12:20:59 @j4p4n: I agree. There should be an easy way for librarians to quickly obliterate whatever spam gets through. However, I think it is more urgent to close the front door by which spam enters. From a programming and effort perspective this is easily done. @AdamStanislav: It's supposed to be a clip-art site. Note the word "art". Letting the machine arbitrarily convert an uploaded bitmapped image to SVG is hardly art and to me is generally ugly. Users should be contributing "art" i.e. something finished that other people might find useful. IMHO this is a problematic experiment and is the front door to spam on this site. It should be eliminated ASAP. A alternative/compromise is to provide an email-and-convert service instead. The user can email a bitmapped image and the server instead mails back the results. Then the user could decide whether or not the results are good enough to post to the site through the usual means. The idea that anybody can potentially post any content in my name is, to be extremely polite, "not good." Imagine what would happen if anybody could post whatever they like in your name on your Facebook page. Think about it.

j4p4n 2017-08-10 09:50:58 I think it would be easy if us librarians had a "delete button" and then we could wipe out spam fast, just X X X X X on the new list. But we don't have that. Admins? Wanna let us X X X X X X X spam on the new uploads list kind of like on the current "clipart" view? Of course we would need a "recently deleted" folder in the librarians section so that we confirm no one was abusing the power or didn't make mistakes with it or anything.

AdamStanislav 2017-08-10 03:32:00 Interesting. The whole idea of the email upload is that someone emails a bitmap to the server which is supposed to convert it to a vector image. So, apparently, the entire process is rather flawed... The process is described at https://openclipart.org/upload2openclipart (which, as I have just realized, lists a different email address to write to if there are issues with it or if someone has some ideas how to improve it. I actually find it rather scary that someone might email some questionable content and have it associated with any existing user. Of course, if that happened, the user could delete it, but if such a user does not come here regularly anymore, this can be abused. :(

oksmith 2017-08-10 01:39:28 This spam contains three embedded bitmapped images. I thought this site was only for "pure" vector/SVG images. Shouldn't the upload mechanism automatically scan the SVG file and reject anything with an <image> tag? Computers can do that kind of thing, can't they? ;-)

AdamStanislav 2017-08-09 01:23:15 Unfortunately, this site allows anyone to email something to be automatically converted to an SVG clip art. And then it is up to us, librarians, to remove the spam. Alas, there is so much spam that I personally have given up on removing it. I mean we are volunteers, and I sure have better things to do than keep removing spam all day every day. And, apparently, other librarians have given up as well. The simple solution would be to stop converting incoming emails into clip art. Seriously, I see no one using the email conversions other than the spammers. Another solution would be to hire someone to keep deleting the spam as a paid job.
