  • Most of your pictures (if not all) are just snapshots, meaning that no special care was taken with framing, composition, point of view, lighting, coloring, etc, etc.. The good news is that all these aspects can (and should) be dramatically improved by observing the work of others (Commons FPC and QI are excellent schools), learning from books and practising. But you will have to offer yourself a better camera. I don't think you will have any chance of passing the QI bar with a mobile phone... Alvesgaspar (talk) 22:00, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Aligator plus noir que noir![edit]

  • Donc tu ne l'avais pas vu! Tu avais raison car il y avait une zone très légèrement plus claire autour qui ne ce voit pas sur des écrans normalement calibrés, mais que tu peux voir si tu pousses la saturation. C'est assez habituel et c'est parfois bien pratique pour des corrections automatiques. J'ai trouvé très fort que tu l'ai vu et j'ai donc redétouré "à la main" et comme tu peux le voir le poids de la photo atteste bien qu'il y avait des pixels allumés.
  • Je suis en colère pour "Eristalis" et j'ai beaucoup de mal à comprendre le mauvais procès qui t'ai fait, notte, pour te consoler que le même personnage a voter contre ma cétoine au prétexte qu'elle était morte, ce qui me laisse dubitatif. On ne peut pas faire des rencontres sympathiques tout les jours... --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 20:16, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
    • Muhammad is a young creator from Tamzania whose work had a remarkable improvement in the last two years or so, despite the intial equipment and connection difficulties. But he still has some way to go especially in terms of composition ... and modesty. I believe that both can be learned.

Controverse[edit]

Bonjour Alvesgaspar.
Quand j'aime vos photos, je les soutiens.
Quand je les aime moins, je m'abstiens. C'est simple.
Ceci est juste pour vous dire que je suis désolé pour vous du traitement parfaitement imbécile que vous fait subir votre antagoniste "en rouge", avec ses oppositions systématiques dans les QIC et les FPC. Donc je souhaite vous témoigner ici de mon Symbol support vote.svg Support dans cette controverse de bas niveau dont vous n'êtes pas responsable, et vous dire que vos photos sont bien souvent admirables (mais vous n'avez pas besoin de moi pour le savoir). Laissez tomber les enfantillages de cette personne, j'espère qu'ils ne vous atteignent pas. Bon courage pour la suite (au fait, quand je demandais à l'auteur d'un commentaire d'expliquer ce qu'il entendait par "composition problems", je sollicitais juste une explication ! Même pour une FPC, cela doit être possible, non ?). Pardon d'avoir préféré m'exprimer en Français, mais je vois que vous pratiquez cette langue, et c'est plus facile pour moi de traduire ainsi mes idées avec justesse. Merci et à bientôt pour de nouvelles photos (et moi, j'aime vos fleurs, votre serra, vos insectes et le printemps !!) Amicalement--Jebulon (talk) 23:28, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

  • Merci bien pour tes paroles sympathiques, Jebulon! Mais il faut voter contre quand on n'aime pas les photos - et expliquer porquoui (j'avais presque oubliés mes rêgles...). La raison c'est qu'on apprend plus avec les votes contre qu'avec les soutiens. Je pense que la crise est finie et que mon antagoniste a enfin realizé que la vendetta n'était pas la meilleure solution. Oui, ça semble des enfantillages mais sur l'Internet on ne sait jamais. Je suis convaincu qu'il s'agit d'un socketpuppet (marionnette?) d'un autre utilizateur, car il connaît trop bien les procédures à Commons pour être un débutant. En ce qui concerne l'évaluation des compositions, c'est três difficile de le mettre en paroles. Il-y-a bien sur des règles très simples (la règle des tiers, par example), mais elles n'aident pas beacoup dans la plupart des situations. Merci encore. Ouis, le printemps est là! -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 08:47, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

ANU episode[edit]

Uhm, I know that I am pretty hot headed sometimes, but this is very thin ice you are treading on. Even in a very heated and emotional debate some restraint is necessary. Btw. an especially critical eye could be mistaken for a call for double standards... --Dschwen (talk) 14:46, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

  • Double standards, Daniel? If I remember well, you were one of the two administrators who admonished me for bringing the case to COM: AN. Still none of you protested, or even referred to, the offensive text still sitting there. Is the removal policy not applicable to this personal attack? Unless the community, and his most responsible members, consider the accusation of being associated with a crook (an identifiable user of Commons, by the way) not a personal attack. I have the strange feeling of having entered this discussion as a victim and left as the villain. Following Slaunger help, I have apologized with sincerity to the people participating in the discussion, for having brought the issue there, while Tomascastelazo offered a ridiculous apology and insisted on keeping most of the aggressive texts. The only explanation I find for this outcome is that, somehow, he is not being considered as totally imputable for his actions. Sunday I will celebrate my fourth year in Commons. As I said before, this was a profitable association for both parts. I offered volunteer work and one thousand+ good quality pictures, mostly on nature themes, and received fun, knowledge and friendship. I sincerely hope that the community will not have to make a choice on which member and contribution to sacrifice. It should be pretty obvious by now that I will not tolerate being punished for something I’m not responsible for. Alvesgaspar (talk) 15:50, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
The comment at the centre of this has been removed, by Tomascastelazo after the ANU thread [1]. The ANU thread clearly asked that he retract the statement and he has done so. The initial complaint on ANU was only really about that, we (as in the community) haven't discussed much beyond that at this point.--Nilfanion (talk) 15:58, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
And just for the record, if you feel I admonished you, then it was for calling for an indefinite block immediately without most of the preceding stages of conflict resolution. --Dschwen (talk) 16:29, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
So, and if I understand well, the issue I'm raising here is being ignored by "technical reasons" ?
You appear to not understand well. --Dschwen (talk) 16:38, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
Would you then be so kind as to clarify if and when the issue will be dealt with? Or what is the reason why it won't?-- Alvesgaspar (talk) 18:27, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Can you help?[edit]

Hello Alvesgaspar! I like to see your flower pictures and they seem to have a solid description of the species they show. I took picture of flowers today and I would like to identify them but I'm not a specialist as you seem to be... Could you help me with identification or propose some way I could find information to help. It would be really appreciated. On related subject, I would like to have them identified to include it in the file name. Do you know if I can change the file name after I imported the picture to show it for identification? Thanks in advance for your help --Letartean (talk) 19:17, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Eheh, I'm not a specialist either! But I have some books on Mediterranean species, use Commons and the web generously as a sorce of knwoledge and have gained some experience in the last two years or so. Recently I asked for help to MPF, who knows a lot more than me. Anyway, please show me your pics, maybe I can be of some help. Welcome to the WFFC (wild flower frick club)!-- Alvesgaspar (talk) 19:24, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
These are the pictures: 1, 2, 3 and 4. If there is nothing you can do, thanks anyway. And continue your good job your pictures are great! --Letartean (talk) 20:04, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
  • C'est bien plus difficle (au moins pour moi) avec des espèces cultivées. Mais voyons (en anglais, à cause des noms...): #1 and #3 belong to the family of Asteraceae. There is an enormous variety of species and cultivars and I'm not at all acquainted with them: try Ram-Man or this site: [2]. #2 is a Narcissus sp., maybe a Narcissus aureus. But again, there are several cultivated varieties. As for #4, it probably belongs to the famlily of Liliaceae, due to its six tepals and stamens. But I may be wrong, this is a very large and complex family. Comme tu vois, c'est pas facile du tout! J'éspère que cette petite aide te sert à continuer la rechèrche.

wasp parasitism[edit]

Hi!

It varies a bit by species, but: 1. In order to keep the caterpillar alive as long as possible, the larvae actually eat the organs in order of importance, so that it can keep feeding and growing. 2. It may well be guarding them. In some particularly creepy examples, the wasps release a mutualist parasite - I forget which type, possibly a trypanasome? - which attacks the caterpillar's brain, and forces it to guard them. In some examples, it'll even spin their cocoons for them, instead of spinning its own, then hover over them, guarding, until it dies from, you know, having half its organs eaten.

I took a parasitology class last year. Adam Cuerden (talk) 10:15, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

pieris formosa[edit]

Bonjour Alvesgaspar.

Puisque tu es un spécialiste de botanique, je t'informe que j'ai chargé sur "Commons" la photo d'un pieris formosa (Andromède de Chine), il n'y en avait pas encore, on dirait. J'ai créé une catégorie. Je ne sais pas quel usage en faire, il y a quelques liens rouges (y compris dans wikispecies) mais pas d'articles, ni de début d'articles, au sujet de cette plante, dans les wikis que j'ai consultés. Si ça peut t'intéresser, n'hésite pas à l'utiliser pour la placer là où c'est utile, peut-être. J'ai aussi photographié la plaque d'info (voir ici). J'ai géocodé. J'ai aussi laissé un message à Lycaon. Bien amicalement, --Jebulon (talk) 16:11, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Bonjour, Jebulon. Un spécisliste de botanique, moi? Ahahah, pas du tout! Je suis juste un apprenti qui a (à peinne) commencé à apprendre les noms. MPF et Lycaon sont des vrais biologistes. Ouis, ça fait du bien d'introduire une nouvelle espèce. Avec le temps, quelqu'un va remarquer ou avoir besoin de la photo. Ça m'est arrivé souvent. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 18:32, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

Category Pages[edit]

Hi again, I need help with categorizing my images, and I can't find the solution for my problem on the help pages. I'd like to store my Osmia cornuta images on the Osmia cornuta page within the Osmia category. Somehow I succeded with one of them, but not with the others. Since you have uploaded lots of biological images I'm sure you're an expert on these things :-)

Best regards --Pjt56 (talk) 08:29, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Maybe I'm stupid, but now there is a subcategory O.c. and a page O.c., both within the Osmia category!? --Pjt56 (talk) 16:33, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
Fixed. The present procedure is to categorize to the species level. So, Osmia cornuta is a subcategory of Osmy, which is a subcategory of Megachilidae, which is ... etc, etc. The page "Osmia cornuta" has now the category "Osmia cornuta". -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 16:43, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
Now we seem to have the same problem with Anthophora plumipes. Thanks for nominating your image for VIC. Most of the other images - not only on Commons - show slightly different coloration, so I wasn't sure about the identification of my images. Hope you're sure about yours ...

FP candidates debate[edit]

Thank you for your kind invitation to this discussion. I read it carefully, and I think I will not participate, because of my poor English first (not sure to be able to use good words to explain my ideas), and then because I think it (this pseudo debate) is now a nice collection of an useless blah blah, for the intellectual satisfaction of some pretentious members of this little society. It looks like an old english club, where members (V.I.P.) are discussing around themselves how to exclude (or non accept) others, and about the hardness of modern times.
some ideas for your eyes only (but on your talk page Smile

  • 1) I don't understand the subject : is the featured pictures level going lower ? or is there a problem with the level of featured pictures candidates ? Absolutely not the same thing.
  • 2) What is really a FP ? (I agree generally with Cephas questions and comments about that). I have an idea, but... I'm afraid that some reviewers think that a FP is a QI+++. That's not my opinion (i have to explain this, but it's hard in a foreign language). I disagree with the translations of the word "featured" : "exzellent Bild" in German is not "Image remarquable" in French
  • 3) The AVAMFPS (Almighty, Venerable & Ancient Members of FP Society) have already all the tools to prevent excessive nominations. What about FPX ? However, they are many enough to oppose for a promotion. If they disagree, then there is no more problem. Have a vote, and basta.
  • 4) My little case : Why do I participate ?
    • a)-Sometimes, I'm happy of one of my pictures, because of its technical quality (look at my poor little camera ! I'll buy another -better- soon, advices are welcome !), or because of something I think "special". And I'm interested to show these images to others. Unfortunately, when I have a good (technically) picture, I become the comment "lack of 'wow'". When I've a good (not technically) picture, I become the comment "poor composition" or "bad quality". No worries, see point d)
    • b)-When I think that the oppose opinion is wrong or not well based, I put my heavy helm on my head, and I ask questions. Generally, it's a "crime de lèse-majesté". What, you "DARE" ask explanations about my oppose vote ?
    • c)-Some nominate "too low-level" images, I agree. But some of V.I.R. (very important reviewers) give pretentiously "too low-level" opinions too. Even some of very intelligent (and surely competent) persons debating with you. (the comments on the Appel of De Gaulle -public domain ? copyright ?- are tragically hilarious, if possible, as an oxymora.)
    • d)-I try to do better and better. For that, I have to suffer the judgment of others. No problem. But they are my peers. Not my superiors. And I'll never accept that a young (or old) pretentious kid (yes old kids exist) will speak to me with bad words.
    • e)-I'll continue. And I don't see why I couldn't, shouldn't, wouldn't give my own opinion on the works of others. I don't care with sacred elephants, and my voice has the same value than this of others, and see following point :
  • 5) You (not especially "you, Alvesgaspar") have a problem with democracy : one man, one vote. Here, and only here, is the question. Can an incompetent reviewer have an opinion ? And may this opinion have the same value than my opinion ? Turn left, turn right, IT IS THE QUESTION. He's a newb, and I have already more than X featured pictures ! I work here for some long days, we see this reviewer here for the first time, maybe he will never come back, and is vote may promote a "bad" image, or decline a "good" one ? My answer is "YES".
  • 6)Then, other questions without answers :
    • what is a good/bad image ? Funny answers on FPC page...
    • What is a competent/incompetent reviewer ?
    • Vous n'êtes pas sortis de l'auberge !! or Vous n'avez pas le c... sorti des ronces !!
  • 7) Sometimes, like others I hope, I'm saturated with butterflies, fortress corridors, mountain panoramas, geology or Hubble astro. I'm sure you understand what I mean... Well, not a problem, I use your rules, and do not vote. But I think there are here some abuses. And not enough originality. Sorry, but a view of Cadmium don't need a promotion as FP to be useful and interesting. and a view of Fort-de-Roppe don't need a promotion as FP to be useless and uninteresting (sorry...nervous breakdown).
  • 8) The 'WOW' factor ! to me, a valid argument, but not alone. No wow MUST be explained, kindly, respectfully and fairly (quasi never the case). There is a difference between 'no wow', and 'I'm not interested by the subject'. Some forget this. 'No wow' means, to me : I'm interested, but disappointed...
  • 9) Do what you want with the ratio pro/contra needed for promotion, the number of FP per months, I don't care. See and judge my images, promote or decline, that's interesting for me to increase my own level. If I disagree I'm able to defend my opinion and kindly fight. But I don't run for the FP number championship ! My pride in life is somewhere else.
  • 10), last but not least: maybe scans and this kind of pictures need a specific modus judicandi (I've a lot to say here too...)
    • Well, as I said first, I will not participate to this debate...
      • Thanks for reviewing this very long speech. I'm sorry !

Your friend, --Jebulon (talk) 00:43, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment -- Let me try to respond to some of your questions (leaving the rethorical ones aside...). Pardonne moi de ne pas le faire en français, ça serait un peu plus difficile. (1) Both things. Also, with the higher number of nominations and overall increase of technical quality we may raise the exigency bar; (3) The 'venerable' only have their votes and words and are not always around. Furthermore many have lost their interest in participating. Yes, the most experienced reviewers may (and do) exercise their influence with didactic comments. But they get tired and feel often alone in the process; (5) One soul, one vote, period; (7) Most photographers are specialized in some field and it's not easy to change, due to several kinds of limitations. That is why we need to have a large group of talented creators contributing with their work and expertise; (8) Saying 'no wow' has become a negative assessment. I agree with you in that there are other ways of passing the same message and I use them a lot; (9) The 'ego-feeding' component of FPC is legitimate and a good stimulus for bringing and keeping talented creators here. Nothing wrong with that: you contribute with your high quality pictures and receive some recognition for it. I would bet this is good business for the project; (10) Maybe so, in terms of their technical assessment. But not making the rules softer for them. The fact is the success rate of such kind of images is significantely higher than average. Cheers, Alvesgaspar (talk) 14:35, 24 May 2010 (UTC)
    • Thanks for answering. I still do not participate to the debate (I don't want to vote, it's not serious IMO: who can vote for proposals ? Newbies too ? Non-sense, according to the terms of the discussion...), but I still follow the exchanges, and I've put some questions...--Jebulon (talk) 17:15, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

Aesthetical reasons[edit]

Bonsoir "Almirante"
Tu as voté contre deux panoramas de Miami (Ianaré) pour des "raisons esthétiques". Peux-tu me les expliquer ? J'aimerais savoir si tu penses la même chose que moi. Merci.--Jebulon (talk) 23:42, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

  • It is difficult to express subjective stuff but I will try. First of all, both pictures are more or less symmetrical, which is aesthetically boring. This is a common flaw in landscape panoramas. The coloring is also uninteresting, with extensive areas of sand and sky and no warm tones (reds, yellows). Finally the horizon if very curved, especially in the second picture. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 08:29, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
  • OK Thank you. En général, je déteste les panoramas, surtout ceux de ce genre. Mon principal problème, c'est la symétrie, et la fausse impression d'angle. Ici, la plage est "horizontale", mais la photo donne une l'illusion que le photographe est sur un "cap" ou une pointe qui s'avance dans la mer. C'est une "super perspective distortion" et j'ai horreur de ça. Idem (c'est un peu moins visible) pour la photo de Franfurt am Main. On croirait être sur une courbe de la rivière, mais c'est "plat" en réalité (voir google map). Merci de ta réponse, Amiral.--Jebulon (talk) 10:01, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Yes, thank you, it is fixed now. Maybe it is time to gather the users of the restoring community and start a specialized forum similar to QI? In my opinion this kind of image fits perfectly in FPC (since we are assessing its overall value) but not in QIC, for the reasons I explained. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 17:34, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
    • Understood. But I think you'll agree that whatever decision is made, it's better to have made it, rather than the confusing "maybe they're permitted, maybe not" we have now. Adam Cuerden (talk) 18:29, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

You could help[edit]

No, Alves, I do not to have a war, that's why I try to avoid lycaon. It was quite for some time, and now he got on me again. He opposes almost all my QI nominations, and my only VI nomination. Right now all my quality nominations four of them are opposed by him. His review are dishonest. See File:Snowflake moray, Echidna nebulosa in Kona May 2010.jpg. It is not just a good quality for underwater shot, it is a great quality.I tried to make up with him few times. All my attempt have failed. here's the latest. He does not like me personally, and that is fine, but I do not like to see his hater in his dishonest reviews. Is it so much to ask for? I know you are his friend. You removed quite a few times the notices of his association with other account from his user page. It was brave of you because you were involved in edit war with admin. Now it would be even braver, if you would tell your friend to stop reviewing (support, oppose,comments are included) my nominations. It will be better not only for two of us, but for the community in whole. Thanks.--Mbz1 (talk) 00:08, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

  • Mila, you know as well as I do that assessing a picture is not a personal action. And no one here will admit it is, as long as the arguments used are of strict technical or aesthetical nature. All we have to do if we don't agree with a negative evaluation is to call for another opinion. Please don't make wild (and wrong) assumptions on my personal motivations. I did remove those notices because I was convinced that was the right thing to do, no matter the people involved. No special bravery is needed for that and, as you well know, my interpretation prevailed at the end. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 00:31, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
Alves, lycaon reviews on my images are dishonest, and they should stop. We have too big of a history with him. He is a marine biologist. His opinion could and will influence other users, who otherwise will not oppose my underwater nominations. I am surprised you cannot understanded it. I believe you had some problems with Tomas, and you stoppod reviewing his images, didn't you. It was the right thing to do. Here is the same situation only much worse, and with much longer history. But I see your opinion is biased. I will not bother you with that matter any more.--Mbz1 (talk) 00:46, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for the nomination. I'm sorry I couldn't participate to the discussion and answer some of the questions about the circumstances of the photo: when I realized the photo was nominated the voting period was already over.--Paulrudd (talk) 04:04, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Template FP seal[edit]

Hi Alvesgaspar,

you have created Template:FP seal, however this seems to be pretty redundant to Template:FP star; I suppose you just didn't about the other one. Currently only three user pages are using your template, and I propose changing them to the FP start template and delete FP seal. Do you mind if I do that? -- H005 Sexy Mouth transparent.png 07:53, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

  • Not at all, go ahead. Is there a simple way to replace the template in my galleries? -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 00:06, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
Of course there is. Ever heard of search & replace? ;-) -- H005 Sexy Mouth transparent.png 19:59, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
Yes I did: in Word, Excel, etc... But not in Commons, where such tool is reserved to important users! -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:19, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
 :-) As I am not an important user I have to walk per pedes and copy the entire source code into notepad, search & replace there and copy it back to Wikipedia. -- 21:49, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Futanari[edit]

You removed my nomination of Futanari.png from FPC. Your reason was: "FPC is supposed to be 'family safe'. Please don't try making any point here"

In which way fails this image the guidelines of COM:FPC? I can't find the stated reason that FPC is supposed to be 'family safe' in any of the guidelines. --Niabot (talk) 06:04, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

But...[edit]

I also thinks, that "old" users should have some manners. The best. Alofok (talk) 10:43, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Advice[edit]

Re: File:Brembola-b-3999.jpg, could you please explain the details for me to learn? Where is it tilted? Why do you think the road is oversaturated? What distracting is in this typical village scene? Thanks.--PereslavlFoto (talk) 16:30, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

  • Tilted: the horizon is not ... horizontal. Check also the vertical lines. This is easy to fix; Oversaturated: the colours don't look natural. Did you use any application to make them more 'vivid' ?; Distracting foreground: you should find some other angle, so that the brick wall and post do not show. Welcome to QIC and good luck with your photos! -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 16:38, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
    • Thanks for the advice. While I don't believe in digital rotations, the pin about horison is helpful. Usually I mind the vertical lines (fence poles). — I used raw converter to set WB and saturation (as zero-changed saturation always leads to gray, non-essential colours). The colours never look natural, as the computer screen cannot show the natural colours. Which spots look bad? — The angles are the hardest question. To avoid the bricks I have to move outwards of the bell-tower and fix myself in the air. This will change the whole scene and will not allow (provided my human ability to fly) the angle I used for this panoramic photo. Flying closer to buildings the photographer will need a fisheye lens, this making the photo completely distorted. So keeping in mind the trouble with bricks and post I see there is no way to have QI of this street...--PereslavlFoto (talk) 16:58, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Scope[edit]

Why do you think that the scope is a joke?: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Von_K%C3%A1rm%C3%A1n_vortex_street Joe Chill 2 (talk) 23:03, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

I created a category for the phenomenon and since there is others like it, I will add them to the category (It's surprising that it wasn't done already). If you will explain how the scope on the other image is vague, I should be able to change it to a more suitable one. Joe Chill 2 (talk) 23:15, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Sorry, that was a mistake (the vortex thing, I mean). As for the "satellite picture of clouds", it doesn't work as a scope because is too general. As general as "satellite picture" of land" or "satellite picture of buildings". You will have to find something more specific inside this general category. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:22, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
    • Does clouds from above work? I forgive you for your mistake. I rarely hold grudges. Joe Chill 2 (talk) 23:24, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
And I changed the other one to clouds from above which does have a category. Joe Chill 2 (talk) 23:19, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Pari in Paris[edit]

Thanks for decline this image in QIC !! You make me win a lot of money !!--Jebulon (talk) 23:07, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

  • But why, did you bet I was going to oppose?... Well, you win! I did notice the picture before, but hoped it passed through the net without being assessed. Exactly like the one with the broken tiles that you opposed (and I think shouldn't have been nominated in the first place)... Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:15, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
    • Well, don't you think I deserve a share of that bet? Fair is fair! -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 23:24, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
