en:Missing square puzzle

Pictogram voting info.svg Info A personnal version of the missing square puzzle, made some time ago. Probably it was already invented and sleeps in some 19th century book, but I'm not aware of it

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Once again, a great animation, but fails #4: there is no description. Will gladly support once the animation is adequately described. – flamurai 08:53, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
    • Actually, I have changed my mind (but not my vote). While it's not as pretty, Image:Missing Square Animation.gif does a better job illustrating the concept. However I think this image could be improved by shading the area of the larger square so the user can clearly see that the "solid" square is smaller than the square with the hole in it. – flamurai 08:58, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
      • Since you have indicated that you prefer an alternative, I have moved this candidate to MVR to let it compete with the alternative you suggest. -- Slaunger 20:44, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
    • I have added a simple explanation to the picture file. But I disagree with the suggestion of inserting a shade, that would spoil the puzzling effect of the animation and ruin most of the fun. It is enough to look carefully at two adjacent quadrangles in different positions to notice that the outer limits don't match -- Alvesgaspar 11:15, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Now seems OK, including criterion 4. --MichaelMaggs 15:16, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - let me defend my dame. The geometric concept in this puzzle is much more elegant, and elegance is (almost) everytinhg in math and geometry... In this picture we have two squares of slightly different areas; in the ohter picture one of the figures is not even a triangle -- Alvesgaspar 10:58, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Pictogram voting info.svg Info This seems like a close competitor to Image:Missing square edit.gif within this scope, so I thought the time was right for an MVR on the subject. -- Slaunger 20:33, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

In that picture we have two squares of slightly different areas; in the present picture one of the figures is not even a triangle.

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment When I think on cranes in a terminal, I have an image in my head with some sort of huge beasts dancing some sort of slow motion ballet. This picture don't has it for me. --Foroa 15:38, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I count 5 in both... – flamurai 17:40, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral I agree this is a close competitor, and I agree it is better at showing the dimension of a larger container ship along with the port cranes. However, there is not as much visible action on this image. For instance on the comoeting image it can be seen that a container is being lifted down, which is not apparent here. -- Slaunger 20:02, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Pictogram voting info.svg Info This tablecloth was made by my mother a long time ago and I still use it in special days

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support It satisfies all the criteria 1 to 6. There are a fair number of competing images, but none I think that are as good as this. --MichaelMaggs 08:37, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Crochet work can be many things and I think it is hard to say which of the images in, e.g., Category:Crochet lace is the most valuable. There are different styles belonging to different time periods and regions. The image nominated is probably the one in the selection of the best photographic quality, it is also convincing in illustrating some of the matehmatical symmetries often found in crouchet work. However (and with all due respect to yuour mothers work) it does not show the full potential of what crouchet work can be. On inspection I think only 2-3 different types of "stitches" (do not know if that is the correct English term) is used, quite typical for the crouchet boom in the 60-70's to which this work belogs. A more refined work concerning stitches is perhaps Image:Irish crochet.jpg, which is typical of Irish crochet and, e.g. Image:Crochet sweden.jpg. What I am trying to say with all this is that the current scope is perhaps too general for the image, so I would suggest that you narrow down the scope to a slightly more specific one, for instance, "Crochet table cloth". You can also try and keep the scope in which case I will let it complete with the two mentioned images in an MVR. -- Slaunger 20:51, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
    • I think you are right, the scope is probably too broad. The problem is I know nothing about crochet and all its different techniques and "stitches" (?). Yes, I could narrow the scope to something like "crochet tablecloth" but I don't like it. A narrower scope should be based on the different styles or techniques, not the applications. Conclusion: please go ahead with the MVR, I think this pic has a fair chance! -- Alvesgaspar 22:18, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
      • And I think you are right in your reasoning that a narrower scope should not be based on the application. Maybe other users have better ideas. Anyway, I have gone ahead with the MVR. Let the best candidate win! -- Slaunger 22:34, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
I saw the other two images and concluded that this one was a better illustration of the general scope. The others may be better at illustrating specific stitches or styles. --MichaelMaggs 06:05, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
