  • Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain (I don’t want to take part to the review process). This is my n°2 best photo (the first being that one); they have this “rating” because what interests me in photography is depicting emotions. Here, I think we can really feel how old the cat is.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support for reasons very different from PetarM's support: this portrait is expressive without the staged quality that mars so many photographs of cats. What's exceptional about this is that it depicts a creature in extreme old age on its own terms. Durova (talk) 18:37, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - Anthropomorphism or not aside, I don't like the framing. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 21:23, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose DOF too shallow, background too busy, not enough there subject wise to make the picture interesting enough for FP, and besides cats don't like to be anthropomorphised. --Dori - Talk 22:30, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

  • I need to rethink about the framing. Later comments have persuaded me that I was too hasty on that front. --Avenue (talk) 09:51, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Not perfect, but on the whole it works. Conveys the car's personality nicely. -- Avenue (talk) 11:22, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry, framing. kallerna 14:15, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I think the framing really adds to the emotion -- you can feel how the cat is coming to terms with age, and how the world around it is fading out. Or I'm reading far to much into the picture. Either way, it's quite excellent. AlexAH (talk) 17:52, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support all the emotional mumbo-jumbo aside, this is a very good animal portrait. The framing is probably one of the pictures greatest strengths besides good choice of DOF and the interesting non-standard pose of the cat. --Dschwen (talk) 01:39, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support per Mile -- Bojan  Talk  13:15, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I would like to say framing is among the best, it is what makes the story. That left side in blur represents all the way this old cat passed through in her (probably not easy) life. Framing with cats poor condition is making her a martyr-like. --Mile (talk) 12:17, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Weak support some points (see above) could be done better, but I think it's good enough for featured --kaʁstn Disk/Cat 17:12, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The focus on the cat's head shows the signs of it's age, yes it's a very emotionally portrait, but I think we can se here a very useful for educational purpose picture, and this is the reason of my support. And it's a very beautiful pic :-) --Phyrexian (talk) 19:12, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support We have similar boy at home. Nice. --Karel (talk) 21:52, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Just say no to more cat pictures on the Internet. Seriously though, I don't much like the composition/framing (too much head room). I also don't think the way the face is looking down is good. Even if it was chosen to highlight some perceived emotion, an educational photo of FP quality should get a more straightforward perspective (both figuratively and literally). Steven Walling 04:47, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I'd like a touch more on the right, and the vertical objects in the background detract as well. --99of9 (talk) 08:58, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose As per Alvesgaspar. Yann (talk) 15:07, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol strong support vote.svg Strong support What a great picture! It would be good if uploader will provide some context in the image description -- is it the cat of the uploader or some stray cat? if he still alive? if he is precisely 20-years old? etc. Trycatch (talk) 17:49, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
    • Oops, I hadn't thought about this! The cat is neither mine, nor a stray cat; I only saw him once, when I was invited at some place. When I took the photo and saw this result, I showed it to the cat's owners, and asked them more information about him. They told me he was 20 at that time, maybe he is 21 now? Anyway, having seen him only once, I couldn't tell if he is still alive today. Should I add this info into the file's description? Diti the penguin 19:16, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
      • Oh nooo, huge privacy issues! Did the cat sign a release? Does it consent to publishing personal information in the internets? Will we need to tag this with {{personality rights}}?! --Dschwen (talk) 19:21, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
      • Thank you, it's interesting. Trycatch (talk) 01:16, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support That's a great picture, appreciate the framing too! I particularly love how this is far to the "cute kitten" stereotype :) --WikiKiwi (talk) 17:51, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Interesting and technically OK. The background is not ideal, IMO, but I agree with Dschwen overall. –Juliancolton | Talk 01:28, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support --by Màñü飆¹5 talk 07:25, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - -LadyofHats (talk) 03:11, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting question.svg QuestionWhere can I check the age of the cat?--Wilfredo Rodríguez (talk) 15:59, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
    • I guess you have to trust me, but if this is a concern (like, as a way to comply with FP's identification rules), I can do my best to ask my relatives about where the cat's owners do live, and ask them official info. I am not a specialist (it is just a guess), but maybe the photo speaks for itself and if I hadn't told you he was 20, you would have guessed? Diti the penguin 16:19, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

  • Regarding as a noun it is female, i suppose. Otherwise i dont know if its female, but You can distinguish between female and male cat knowing male has bigger head and bigger foots. --Mile (talk) 19:04, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
  • English does not have male and female nouns. Anyway, I take it that you did not mean that it is a female cat. Snowmanradio (talk) 19:51, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Chicago theater in downtown Chicago, USA
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info Exposure blended shot of the Chicago theater. It's location in downtown Chicago is crammed and shadowing by surrounding highrises make for difficult lighting conditions. Perspective is partially corrected, full correction looks odd given the wide angle and upward pointing camera. A lot of postprocessing wen into this to remove any ghosting from the exposure blending. All by Dschwen (talk)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Dschwen (talk) 19:08, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Fine resolution. I think the partial perspective correction works well. Some movement shadows behind the person walking to the left, which you could easily remove. A little chromatic aberration. Snowmanradio (talk) 22:03, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
    • I have looked at in again and I have become a bit puzzled by the vanishing points. I think the perspective is flawed. I have changed my support vote to a comment. Awaiting amended image. Snowmanradio (talk) 20:00, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support A fine example of a well-done exposure blend. Looks natural and realistic enough. I noticed that the blonde person walking in front of the scaffolding on the right has a ghost of her hair a few feet behind her ; that should not be difficult to touch up either. --MAURILBERT (discuter) 03:22, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Ok, thanks, I'll try fix those tomorrow. --Dschwen (talk) 04:06, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
    • Files are on a different machine, not accessible to me right now. Will have to wait till monday. --Dschwen (talk) 15:44, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very nice. Steven Walling 09:00, 28 March 2010 (UTC) Switch to Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose, I didn't see the ghosting until I opened it at full resolution. If that's fixed I'd support again. Steven Walling 21:04, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - There is a significant difference between the angle of the buildings with the vertical at left (about 2.5º) and at right (about 5º). The result is an apparent cck tilt of the image. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 10:25, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment If the photo above photo is in your opinion "at least a QI", why should this one be FP? Yes, it's technically very good, and I like that it looks realistic althougt it is exposure blended. IMO the finest part of this photo are the lights of the theater, but it's otherwise quite dull. kallerna 11:15, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
    • Is would be also interesting to me... I ask me that too --kaʁstn Disk/Cat 15:01, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
      • I don't think I quite understand the question here. Maybe you two need to refresh your knowledge of Predicate logic. As for Kallerna: I guess trying to explain why any picture that was neither taken by you nor shows a bird's behind should be FP seems like a waste of time :-P. --Dschwen (talk) 15:39, 28 March 2010 (UTC). P.S.: Just to make this even clearer: I was giving a lower bound for the other picture and you somehow seem to have confused this with an upper bound, which happens to be the exact opposite. --Dschwen (talk) 15:41, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
        • I don't want to be rude like you, so I'll ask again. This image has many similitaries with photo to which you said "at least a QI". Why is this file better than it? kallerna 15:56, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
          • What are you trying to achieve here? Haven't I made myself clear enough yet? Where are you getting this better than nonsense from? --Dschwen (talk) 16:15, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
            • All the bounds aside (which I get), doesn't the fact that you support this picture and not that one mean anything? --Muhammad (talk) 18:06, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
              • All it means is that I haven't made up my mind about yours. --Dschwen (talk) 20:48, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
            • I waited that you would politely answer to my question and if you answered well, I would have supported the photo. I thought that you had reason to nominate this one and another to oppose the other one. Benh gave good reasons to his oppose there, maybe you had the same things in mind? kallerna 20:30, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
              • Where are you getting that I oppose Muhammads picture? You make no sense whatsoever. And of course there is a reason I nominate my picture after seeing his. They are somewhat alike in subject/style, which made me remember this old shot I had. --Dschwen (talk) 20:48, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
                • Well you didn't oppose it, but as I said, you didn't consider it even being QI. And it's technical quality was ok to me, even if it was bit small. So I just thought that there could be something special in this photo, which I don't see. kallerna 20:58, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
                  • Oh. Then I guess it is a simple language problem. I said it is at least QI which means it is for sure a Quality Image, and maybe even more than that. Implying that it may be featureworthy here, but I haven't made up my mind. --Dschwen (talk) 21:53, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
                    • And I somehow messed it's meaning. Sorry! Smile kallerna 18:52, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
    • Although I also find this picture misses wow as well, I think it's fair to say that it is a little bit more challenging to take that the indian town hall below given the lighting conditions and the fact you have no choice but using very wide angle to catch the whole building (I'm just guessing, but wouldn't be surprised given the streets pattern of a typical american city downtown). - Benh (talk) 19:53, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Similar pictures wouldnt pass QI because of perspective distortion. Ghosting seen. --Mile (talk) 19:18, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose lot of CA on borders and looks a bit "pale" because of the blending. I'd add a little bit more saturation to compensate. In my opinion, not enough wow to compensate for the minor technical faults overall, but I think I would support once they are fixed.. - Benh (talk) 19:53, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose no wow --LadyofHats (talk) 03:24, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

    • It's been well over a year since I started working on it. I remember there was a lot of damage around that corner, and I THINK that was a tear in the image, which had been physically repaired, but the repair reflected some of the scanner light back. I fixed it as well as I was able, but sometimes it can be difficult to fix something completely. The things the Library of Congress prepared can be a little weird at times.

          • I understand your frustration. It's next to impossible for you to do anything about it. But Featured means the best of the best, near-perfect quality. Even a small distraction in composition like grass breaking up the line of your subject is reason enough to oppose. Whether or not the grass is a natural part of this animal's environment is beside the point; it obscures the interesting and educational facets of the photo, and that's not acceptable for FP.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Excellent, but it might be possible to improve it even further. Some minor points or observations suggested as constructive criticism mainly for overall consistency within the illustration: I wonder if it is worth writing "Cercus" on the right and putting a pointing line to it, and also to indicate what I to VII are perhaps by putting "Abdomen (segments I to VII)" on the right: The green at the top goes beyond the head and the blue of the abdomen stops at the end of the abdomen: I think that I would have put "Head", "Thorax", and "Abdomen" in the middle or the top of the coloured (or bracketed) bands: I might have extended the space available on the left and right for more room for the writing and added coloured (or bracketed) bands for the wing and leg (on the left): I am not sure why the existing coloured bands extend over the mid-line and why the middle band goes further to the left: The coloured band might not be needed if elongated brackets ("}"s) were used to indicate the head, thorax, and abdomen regions instead of colours. --Snowmanradio (talk) 11:54, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info- i moved "cersus" and placed some text and line for the abdominal segments. i also increased the space on the bottom for the blue "bar". I can not give the wing a colored bar becouse wings are not perse segments of the body but instead belong to the Thorax. In a sence that is why the yellow bar extends a bit more than the other two. same goes for the legs. Colored bands may not be needed to divide the segments of the body but they look good :P. plus there is already a style line on insects diagrams that started with the ant i made some years ago. it would seem it has spreaded arround and i dont see any reason not to continue with it :) as examples for it are (the butterfly,heteroptera,grasshoper,housefly, between others ( none of this are mine)) -LadyofHats (talk) 16:08, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment That seems to be an improvement to me, because of enhanced consistency. I did not know about the colour bands in the other images. I would not have realized that the extended middle band was indicating that the wings are part of the thorax. Snowmanradio (talk) 19:11, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Culex pipiens is the correct way of writing the binomial name of the species. The first word is capitalised and the second word is all lower case, and both words are in italics. The capitalization in the image will need correcting. Perhaps the binomial name could be written a bit larger, and perhaps in a more central position somewhere. Snowmanradio (talk) 19:26, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
        • Pictogram voting info.svg Info i fixed the name, but i leave it in the same place since i have my doubths about having it on the picture at all. the idea was to make a diagram of a "generic" mosquito. unfortunaly i realised there are main diferences between the diferent species that go beyond of the color or size. specially between the anopheles and the culex. that is why i placed the name of my model to be on the safe side -LadyofHats (talk)
      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Foreleg is one word, while hind leg and mid leg are each two words, and they should probably be written "Hind leg" and "Mid leg" (the first word capitalised only - leg not capitalised as it is not a proper noun) to be in line with wiki capitalization guidelines.

but wikipedia already has a line in wich it offers you to see the image up to 2000 pixels wide. increasing the actual file size would only make it heavier for the server. oposite to a bitmap image it isnt like quality would improve with a bigger file -LadyofHats (talk) 08:34, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
The SVG code would not increase in length by changing the nominal size of the image; a larger default size would be a better match for the amount of detail shown; yes, the wikimedia software will create png files at any desired size, but it needs an extra click, and not everybody is aware of those 2000px links. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 08:58, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

    • According to User:maedin Diliff already commented on that last year. He said it is not ToneMapped. --Dschwen (talk) 17:22, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support A bit over saturated, but I still find this picture "attractive". Wonder what kind of processing was applied, certainly there was some sort of tone-mapping like treatment, or Diliff played a lot with curves, because shadow areas are noisy (not the typical canon 5D trademark...) and the sky dramatically blue (and I don't believe this comes from any kind of filters). - Benh (talk) 19:07, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
    • Yeah, it almost seems like the typical Diliff trademark. I have beeen browsing through a lot of his images lately and it seems that this is his standard processing. If I understood correctly he works exclusively from RAW, and my guess is that the shadow lifting (or rather digital "fill light" which is standard in raw converters) is part of his regular work flow. The noise in the shadows can be seen in many of his pictures. --Dschwen (talk) 19:24, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
      • I don't know which software Diliff uses, but I've recently been experimenting as well to get this kind of "pop" skies. My only successful way is to tone map from a single picture : you underexpose and overexpose from RAW to get the additional exposures. You can them feed enblend with these pictures. In the end, u get better results (IMO) and more details than if u play with curves yourself as RAW have 12bit/channel on the 5D (against 8 for normal tiff or Jpeg I think, and anyways, I can't do this in gimp, yet ?). My results looks similar to this, with noise in dark areas, and intensely blue skies with white clouds. Maybe Photoshop and whatever from Adobe, DxO... offer more possibilities... but I believe it would be just mimicking this workflow. If anyone knows ? - Benh (talk) 19:52, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
        • Yeah, this is one of the photos that I've never been 100% happy with, and was on the list of photos to reprocess. From memory I did exactly what Benh has described - except I used tufuse to blend the over and underexposed images, which isn't strictly tone mapping, but it's similar. The 'pop' of the sky is due to using a polariser filter, and it was undoubtably very green (late spring), but I think it's probably worth re-processing it and uploading a new image. Give me a bit of time. As an aside, sometimes the reason for the shadow noise in my images is not tone mapping or lifting the shadows too much. As you know, blown highlights are a pain, particularly in clouds in the sky, so I will often underexpose the photo in order to preserve those highlights. In order to then bring the rest of the image back to the correct exposure, you have to dig it out of the shadows, and that typically results in the noise. I think I've just overdone it on this image. Diliff (talk) 20:06, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
          • Ok. This one is processed straight from Lightroom with no fusion involved. Fairly basic settings used actually. Virtually no saturation boost (+5 vibrance is all) so if you still think saturation is OTT, I politely disagree. As you can see, the left side wall is very underexposed, and the shadows are much deeper. Hope this is more to everyone's liking. Apologies for the first one being a bit crap. Dschwen, yeah, I do sometimes boost shadows (fill light) when the shadow detail is important, and as I said, I expose to minimise blown highlights, so sometimes this is necessary. Sometimes I get it wrong. Some photos require a revisit (or feedback) to notice the mistakes. :-) Diliff (talk) 20:50, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
            • Yeah, I was not meaning to call this a mistake at all. I do the same thing with respect to under-exposure, and I like the results you get. I have been meaning to adjust my workflow to reproduce the lightend shadows, but often end up making my whole image dull. Guess global curves just doesn't cut it. I did experiment with enfusing multiple virtual exposure steps, but I guess I need more practice there. --Dschwen (talk) 21:36, 25 March 2010 (UTC) P.S.: Uhm, well for this picture did, just not the technique in general. --Dschwen (talk) 15:58, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
  • I'm surprised you used a polariser filter as the effect seems even in the sky (one of the issues I often have is unevenness, which is even more pronounced when sun comes from aside, as this seems to be the case here), but this explains why the grass and trees are so green in my opinion. Any version looks good to me. I prefer bottom part from new version, but the sky from first one. - Benh (talk) 21:09, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

        • Well the cream part of the diagram extends over the process that happens inside the body. and it actually should be cream over white. but someone insisted in having the background transparent when on QI evaluation -LadyofHats (talk) 08:53, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: Since the diagram is about infestation in humans, perhaps the image description should mention Giardia intestinalis. Is all of the information referenced? - I could not find "1 in 3 infected humans get symptoms" in the sources provided. Snowmanradio (talk) 10:18, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

on the english wikipedia it is called Gardia lamblia so that is how i name it on the description. Also de the one on 3 was on the wikipedia article at the time i made the image. i tryed to find it right now but it seems to have been changed to "not all infections present symptoms". so i changed the image acording. I also uploaded a numbered version and found a german translation :P-LadyofHats (talk) 21:22, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

  • OK: It is well known as Giardia lamblia. I am concerned that there is no reference for "a third of infected people are symptomatic". Snowmanradio (talk) 00:59, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

      • Well, I meant that some have full stops and some don't. Also, "everyone" shouldn't be capitalized, and I think it should be "not everyone exhibits symptoms". –Juliancolton | Talk 14:13, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I am not sure why there is a red square at the mouth. The intestine illustration seems somewhat detached from the rest of the diagram - I think that it could be used in a better way to show which stages of the life cycle are in the intestines. Snowmanradio (talk) 10:58, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting info.svg Infothe red square is there to indicate that the parasite is ingested ( and can only be aquired by ingestion) the colored intestine is there becouse everything else ( on the colored semicircle) happens in the intestine. i could increase the color to make it clearer that the stages are all POINTING to the intestine. would that help?-LadyofHats (talk) 10:20, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

A Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpres) on a Florida beach in winter.
  • It is a shorebird and it is photographed on a sandy beach. I guess that the bird's colouring has an element of camouflage. I do not expect camouflaged animals to stand out against the background when they are photographed in the wild in a natural setting. The image size is 3,872 × 2,592, which is at least six times the area of a minimum sized FP. Snowmanradio (talk) 15:02, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Sorry, just IMO boring composition. Good capture anyways. kallerna 18:54, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose QI definitely, but not really the "wow" needed for FP, especially relative to other avian photos. FWIW, I think the background/composition is just fine. The bird is in sharp enough focus to deal with a broken or shadowy background. Steven Walling 21:26, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment To clarify, I mean it has no special quality in terms of composition or how it illuminates the subject. I do not mean I simply find the subject boring (far from it). Put another way, it's not an exceptional educational photo, merely a technically adequate one, which is why I mentioned QI. Still, even if I did just think it was boring, the social sciences have clearly demonstrated that beautiful and engaging work helps people learn faster and more thoroughly than dry work. With that in mind, boring is a useful unit of measurement for educational photography. Steven Walling 04:45, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
      • This is a biological science image, and it is not especially a social sciences image. Snowmanradio (talk) 11:48, 1 April 2010 (UTC

You want to know why?

I'll tell you why. Here's what the Arbcom on en-wiki has done in just the last month or so. You can figure out the context yourself.

1. Rlevse oversights links to the offline copy of the log about Durova, which was my main bit of evidence against Durova. This greatly escalates the case, forcing me to take it to Arbcom, because that's the only way I can have the log considered, since Rlevse is determined to abuse her tools to protect Duurova. OBVIOUS FAVOURITISM TO DUROVA

1a. I mail the Oversight committee about this. I get a message saing it was awaiting moderation, then nothing. I send it again, I'm told it's being discussed, but they forgot to tell me. I send two or three messages after this, asking if I'll be informed of the result. None are ever replied to.

2. During the case, Durova is allowed to go over the word limit, but if I do, I get a warning. I allow my text to be redacted once, because I was so upset over the Faysall's talking about how Durova should apologise, at which point I will immediately work with her on a project, treating two years of her using me as a scapegoat as something I should go back to, so the Arbcom doesn't have to bother. OBVIOUS FAVOURITISM TO DUROVA 2a. When I briefly go over again during the course of a major, three horu revision fo my statement, I get some weird edit conflicts along the way. I don't know why, so I just save over them, so I can get my thoughts together. IT turns out some clerk was constantly reverting to a reduced form of the FIRST EDIT I MADE, even as I was still trying to get my words together. In the meantime, Durova's wordcount stood at about 576, and no redaction happened to hers. OBVIOUS FAVOURITISM TO DUROVA 2b. I find out about this when done, and go to deal with it. I tell the clerk it will take a short time to work on it, and point out the problem with Durova. I complain about the uneven treatment, so he blocks me. OBVIOUS FAVOURITISM TO DUROVA 2c. The clerk then spends 2 hours being an utter dick, holding the block over my head, while poking me with a stick. He only unblocks if I promise to leave his highly misleading redaction alone. 2d. Durova's statement remained over the word count during this time. OBVIOUS FAVOURITISM TO DUROVA

3. Durova outright lies, claiming, based on me giving permission for her to post a specific log which backed an outrageous claim she made - and was never able to back - that she can post any logs she wants, because her Skype is saved as one log. She actually quotes from e-mails. The Arbcom are unconcerned with her behaviour, or that this new statement of hers is around 1500 words. OBVIOUS FAVOURITISM TO DUROVA

4. The fact that she lied about having permission, was unable to back an accusation which she had made on ANI before, claiming she had the log at that time, does not concern Arbcom. They decide that, despite me having been driven off Wikipedia for 5 months by her actions, and her not having a lick of evidence against me, that they should ignore her behaviour. OBVIOUS FAVOURITISM TO DUROVA?

5. Durova is allowed to make constant references to the situation which set off the case at en:Talk:The Raven, even make snide comments about logs containing my objection to her orientation. All this questioning was being done by other people. They are fine with this. But, when something I made on commons - which they explicitly excluded from their judgement - having seen what she was doing on en-wiki at en:Talk:The Raven gets put up as an FP candidate on en-wiki, and I politely ask that it not be used, because I had had to make do with some non-FP quality work, they block me for the maximum duration. OBVIOUS FAVOURITISM TO DUROVA


After Durova spent two years harassing me, they have decided to show blatant and obvious favouritism to her, while poking fun of me. And this while knowing I was in a vulnerable state for various reasons, had just returned after five months away due to the harassment, and had only in the last week returned to participation. Then they pull the last stunt, and taunt me about it.

English Wikipedia's power structure is blatantly corrupt. And anything I do here supports those people over there. That's why you should care about en-wiki. Adam Cuerden (talk) 03:31, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Uhm, first of all what you do here supports the readers of en.wp. Why punish them? Secondly why punish the remaining Wikimedia projects too? --Dschwen (talk) 03:46, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Scans on the net vary from all ranges of color and quality, and even prints aren´t always reliable. The correction would have to be made by someone with some good artbooks to compare.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. I think that the label "Abdomen" should be at the top and alongside the headings "Thorax" and "Head", possibly with the coloured areas reaching the same level at the top of the image. In the inset could "Caudal hairs" point to both caudal hairs, if there are two. Snowmanradio (talk) 12:23, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
    • did it. (not in every species are 2 caudal hairs. it seems the place and number of hairs are a main point in recognising the diferent species) -LadyofHats (talk) 13:42, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
      • It does not look right with the word "Abdomen" at a lower level than the words "Head" and "Thorax". The blue could go right to the top and the word "Abdomen" centred or moved to the right with a little padding on the left to separate it from "Thorax". The "Caudal hairs" pointer on the main diagram only points to one hair, despite being in the pleural. The binomial species name could go in a much smaller white zone, or there are several other ways of getting Head, Thorax, and Abdomen on the same level with some spacing in the appropriate colour zone.

      • Um, well, take a guess? This doesn't really have any educational or artistic value IMO. It would probably make a QI though. --The High Fin Sperm Whale 23:07, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
      • Well well well... It is just what I was afraid of. 1) This picture is still a QI (not would probably make, see point 2). 2) "take a guess" is unnecessary contemptuous. 3) Your opinion about non educational value of this image could maybe be corrected with a very short study of the multi secular history of Europe, and of the history of relationship between Islam and Christianity, which seems to be today a very important matter, if you read newspapers sometimes. This history begins here, on these walls and on these columns, with such a motto that you may find everywhere in the Alhambra of Granada... (Patrimoine Mondial de l'Humanité selon l'UNESCO). Your opinion about the non artistic value of this picture is more relevant, I think. Not everybody is able to appreciate the middle-age Nasrid architectural sculpture and calligraphy. Smile--Jebulon (talk) 20:26, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
        • I didn't mean to be contemptuous. Maybe it does have some educational value, it just isn't very visually appealing. I didn't know it was a QI though, and it should be. I just don't think it has what it takes to be a FP. --The High Fin Sperm Whale 21:08, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral bad file name. Unless the purpose of "03193u" is convincingly explained, I find it "noisy". The true title of the artwork should be provided. In that case it seems to be Vaux-Hall with a hyphen. So the File should be called [[:File:Vaux-Hall.jpg]] or [[:File:Vaux-Hall by Thomas Rowlandson.jpg]] or [[:File:Thomas Rowlandson - Vaux-Hall.jpg]](in a similar fashion with File:George Romney - Portrait de l'artiste.jpg) . A Creator template should be used. The date information should be provided in a less ambiguous manner, mentionning that 28 June 1785 is not the date when the event took place or the date when the painting was completed but the publishing date. Category:Engravings is a crowded category and no file should be included directly into it. Instead it should be included into a more detailed "by century" or even "by decade" or "by year" category and a "by country" category. Perhaps a template adapted from {{Painting}} should be created for engravings. I not sure if one should understand that it was "drawn by" Rowlandson, as a painting was mentioned. Should we no write "painted by" instead ? Teofilo (talk) 14:06, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - ditto to Teofilo. One obvious effect of the filename's 0- prefix is to place it at the top of any category page it is in, making it more conspicuous, very sneaky . . . On the pic itself, yes, high quality and so on, but it doesn't have the 'wow' factor that makes a pic special. The subject matter I find decidedly boring. MPF (talk) 21:43, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
You are right. I've actually been meaning to move it for some time, but it's used enough places that it's going to be slightly disruptive. Long story short, that was the filename on my computer; the 03193u is the Library of Congress file name, which makes it a little easier for me to find the right page again when it comes time to link the image. Unfortunately, when I sent my work to Durova, she uploaded without changing the name, and there was no easy way to move files until fairly recently. It's moved now. Adam Cuerden (talk) 22:31, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for your effort to change for a better name. I still disagree with your keeping of "Dr. Johnson, Oliver Goldsmith, Mary Robinson, et al." within the file name. I think File names should not be more complicated than "<artist name> - <artwork title>". For example, I find the dates too noisy in File:Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) - The Last Supper (1495-1498).jpg but I am glad that it is not named [[:File:Leonardo da Vinci - The Last Supper - Jesus, Peter, John et al.jpg]]. Anyway your effort is probably worth that I change my "oppose" into "neutral". Teofilo (talk) 08:20, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Following the link credited for the images source (Tropenmuseum) there is a larger copy of the image on that page (you can find a direct link to it looking at the source code) - http://collectie.tropenmuseum.nl/imageproxy.asp?server=collectie.tropenmuseum.nl&port=20980&filename=\G%20schijf\TMSMedia\images\screen\60016824.jpg (don't know how long this link will be active) this copy of the image is much larger at 1,121px × 1,500px which puts it nearly at 1.7Mpx - nearly the 2Mpx advised for a Featured Picture. I don't know the legal side of this - if the picture is entirely in the public domain then uploading this image is fine, however if just the smaller resolution image is in the public domain then this obviously can't be uploaded, which is a shame. It may be that the bot which is uploading all of these images (all 35,000 of them), is uploading them at a smaller resolution than is available - in which case it looks like the bot will need to be reprogrammed. I think I'll raise this issue at the Village Pump. -- 77.86.89.44 04:03, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment issue raised here
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info According to the Village pump discussion, as the author died less than 70 years ago then the image is not in the public domain, so only the smaller resolution copy will be available. As the author died in 1944, the date the image will become available will be in 2014 (as the exact date is as yet unknown it would probably be advisable to wait until 2015). Would people support a renomination of the higher res image in 5 years time? -- 77.86.89.44 22:31, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
