would like to create a sticker for soldiers in French troops during the war of conquest

+4 votes

I just filled in a bit of data on a man who was a soldier in the Berry regiment, Montcalm's troops, during the war of conquest that basically ended New France.  There exists the category Troupes de terre already, as well as the battle of the plains of Abraham category.  Would like to get a sticker for these men, not sure how to go about it.  Profile tagged is for illustration, there are others.  Any help would be appreciated.

Text for French and English versions proposed:

Soldat de la guerre de sept ans en Nouvelle-France 1756-1763

Soldier in the seven years war in New France 1756-1763

Uncertain what image would be appropriate.  Possibly Roll of honour template jpg-16 ?  Already used on general Montcalm's profile.  Or another, he was killed in action so wouldn't apply to all.

I like the idea, assuming you (or someone else) comes up with an appropriate image.  I manage some profiles that would apply, such as Hubert Couterot and Joseph Adam.

don't know about the image, looking at some things in Wikipedia, there are images there that are unrestricted use, but don't know how appropriate they would be.  Nor how to actually download them, lol.
I would go directly to Wikimedia Commons-that's where I get most of my images, since each one includes information on any rights restrictions, if any.  Many of the images there are in the public domain.  Further, each one includes a download link.
either I'm doing something wrong, or there's a glitch, the download links aren't working there for me.

Creation and Editing

Profile Stickers can only be created by WikiTree Leaders. They should not be created independently.

If you would like a new Sticker, whether or not you are a Leader, propose it in G2G using the STICKERS tag. Include your thoughts on what it would say and give examples of profiles you manage that you would place it on. If three or more other active members say that they would also use it on profiles they manage, and there aren't strong objections from the community, it can be created.
