Bernhard, i have a question about one of the images from Wikimedia Commons your signature stands under: either

The case is that i carry out some investigation about Greek temples. I do realize that this image is digitally drawn in AutoCAD, but it should have its, so to say, 'analog' origin. So, i want to know were this image comes from: the book, it's original author or author of measuring, or any information about image' origin you could provide me with.

Thank you for ahead. Dmytro, Ukraine. nejix

Yes, you are right, I drew the image myself in autocad, but of courxe I used a source for it. It was mainly based on one of the books (in German) that accompanied my travel in Sicily, either
  • Klaus Gallas: Sizilien – Insel zwischen Morgenland und Abendland, DuMont Buchverlag, Köln 1986 (9.Aufl.), ISBN 3-7701-0818-3 or
  • Brigit Carnabuci, Sizilien - Kunstreiseführer, DuMont Reiseverlag, Ostfildern, 4. Auflage 2006, ISBN 377014385X
I did, however, not merely copy the image, but compared different plans and also took into account
  • Robert Koldewey, Otto Puchstein: Die griechischen Tempel in Unteritalien und Sicilien. 1. Bd Text, 2. Bd Tafeln. Asher, Berlin 1899. (see gallery Robert Koldewey) and
  • Dieter Mertens: Städte und Bauten der Westgriechen. Von der Kolonisation bis zur Krise am Ende des 5. Jh. v. Chr. Hirmer, München 2006, ISBN 3-7774-2755-1
Those are the sources for ancient greek temples I use. Greetings--Bjs (talk) 13:14, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

River power plants[edit]

Hi Bjs, I wonder what the difference between a normal hydroelectric power plant and river power plant is. Please enlighten me. As most (if not all) hydroelectric power plants are placed at rivers and only few of them are in ‘your’ subcategory Category:River power plants I'm pretty confused. -- Ies (talk) 18:37, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Hydroelectric power plant is a more general term, river power plant a more specific one, i.e. one sort of hydroelectric power plants among others like tidal power plants, embankment dam power plants, pumped-storage power plants and so on. These power plants not only differ in the way the water is fed but also e.g. in the turbines used.
I did not invent the category but merely renamed it from „plant“ to „plants“ according to the general scheme and made an own subcategory for the power plants of Munich which were sorted therein. It is a young category, therefore, not much power plants are sorted therein. In my opinion, a distinction between different types of hydroelectric power plants is useful and should be prosecuted further in the future, also for other types of hydroelectric power plants. The galleries/categories should then be moved from the more general category to the more specific categories. --Bjs (talk) 20:09, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
That sounds useful. Thanks. -- Ies (talk) 05:53, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
