Hallo. Just curious why you removed Category:National Security Agency, United States from Category:2013 Mass Surveillance Disclosures? I tagged it so you wouldn't have to dig through 5 layers of other categories to get there, and the documents are created/published by NSA. Not criticising, just would generally like to know for future reference. Also: a lot of contents in the Disclosure Cat point to NSA, so maybe can just link Disclosure instead of each individually? Danke. --dsprc (talk) 05:13, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

This is according to COM:overcat as not to put an category in another category and it's parent category.--Sanandros (talk) 05:39, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply. Sure I can specify the pictures that I want to use. Should I link you here or somewhere else? --Jewel-8291

Sorry if I bother you with adding another new topic. I was just concerned whether you received my reply since I don't really know how talk page works. Please let me know if I should provide you a list of pictures here or somewhere else (email etc). Sorry for the inconvenience caused and thank you.--Jewel-8291

You can copy the links of the picures here. And you don't need to open an new topic as the wiki software is automaticly informing me if somebody wrote on my talk page. And with {{ping|Jewel-8291}} -> @Jewel-8291: I can even inform you that I mentioned you. If you have more questions about talk pages see en:Help:Using talk pages on the english wikipedia or com:talk on commons.--Sanandros (talk) 17:32, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

File:United States Navy SEALs 244.jpg[edit]

Per this edit. Based on it being an EOTech holographic sight it is therefor not a "reflex sight". Reflex sight is short for "reflector sight", i.e. they use some form of mirror combined with a collimator to create an image that is reflected towards the user, hence the name. EOTech holographic sights do not use any mirror to create the image, the hologram is built into the optical window so no "reflectors" are involved, they are and are called "holographic sights".

This diagram shows some reflectors and a collimator.--Sanandros (talk) 06:42, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
The reflectors, collimator (and holography grating) are for the laser that illuminates the transmission hologram, it needs to be illuminated from an exact angle. Transmission holograms are not focused or reflected and all the illumination apparatus is arranged on the opposite side of the window from the viewer, a totally different technology and a 180% opposite layout to all reflector sights, which reflect a focused image of a physical reticule that sits on the same side of the window as the viewer.

Then let's make a new category.--Sanandros (talk) 06:48, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
