Locator maps of cities in Peru[edit]

I am looking to delete all images at category:Locator maps of cities in Peru, since we can use Pushpin maps on the city infoboxes. What do you think? --Andersmusician $ 01:05, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

That's a coincidence, i was just looking for a base map to try the pushpin mechanism on the Lima article. So yeah we should do so.AgainErick 19:36, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
One of the standard maps: Peru regions, blank.png Perú · (departamentos).png

or one of the new versions Peru Blue Administrative Base Map.png

Or a new one with the right dimension to be used without resizeing? Maybe a svg? AgainErick 19:48, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Have an idea, the w:Peach-yellow one for regions and provinces coloring, the gray one for locator(pushpin) maps (following tendency at wikipedia except for USA places). I think the third one is pretty dark for placing a little dot on it. --Andersmusician $ 19:22, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Category:Charts of Peru[edit]

Hi, I've added a category for charts of Peru. Like demographic charts, climate charts etc. AgainErick 00:06, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Maps of Lima[edit]

Hi, I've added a gallery for Maps of Lima.--ErickAgain 00:00, 14 July 2007 (UTC)


Should captions be in English or in Spanish? --Victor12fromWikipedia 05:34, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

you mean the captions at Maps_of_Lima#Locator_maps_for_districts_.28Series_II.29?--Andersmusician $ 19:24, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
I'm not sure, I just found these locator maps and added them. I think it applies to captions in general. I added some captions in other languages on Lima, like on Peru. I haven't found any rules about using languages on commons. --ErickAgain 19:36, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I was thinking of captions in general, like in Peru or Lima. Maybe we should standarize on two languages minimum, English and Spanish, for all pics. Maybe three if Eric wants to translate all of them into Dutch... :-) --Victor12fromWikipedia 20:06, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Category:Night in Peru[edit]

Hi, I've added Peru to the Category:Night by country and added some images, but i'm sure there are more night images here in commons already. --ErickAgain 19:32, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Category:Festivals of Peru[edit]

Hi, I've added Peru to the Category:Festivals by country and added one image taken at señor de Qoyllur R'Iti. --ErickAgain 20:04, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I've added Peru to the Category:Doors by country and added 7 images taken in Cusco. --ErickAgain 20:57, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Another lone wolf[edit]

user_talk:Eduardotrinchera uploaded 3 pics, probably will be deleted if we don't contact him, does anybody know if he's on wikipedia?--User:andersmusician 17:57, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Haven't heard of him at Wiki, at least not at the English wiki. --Victor12fromWikipedia 21:32, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
Me neither --ErickAgain 17:52, 25 October 2007 (UTC).


As an FYI, I added some Spanish to help encourage participation from Spanish speakers WhisperToMe (talk) 23:53, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
