They didn't bite this time, sorry. We'll just have to keep trying. ;) Think I'll nominate something way off the beaten track next, just for fun. Also want to wish you a very pleasant holiday now. Cheers, cart-Talk 16:54, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
Since 1959, it is a Swedish tradition to (at 3 pm) watch Donald Duck and other Disney cartoons on TV. The most appreciated part is about Donald as bird photographer in Clown of the Jungle. I think most users at FPC can relate to the frustrated Donald (especially the parrot scene), which is why I'm sharing it with you. Happy Holiday! --cart-Talk 14:57, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
@W.carter: How did that tradition come to be? I figured the stealing of Christmas traditions was more the other way around. (Well, I wouldn't say watching Disney is a Christmas tradition here... Rudolph and Charlie Brown are the big things to watch here. And It's a Wonderful Life since it entered the public domain...). Anyway. Happy Holiday! — Rhododendritestalk | 17:00, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, it's a weird tradition alright. But back when TV started, and for the longest time, Sweden had only one TV channel and it was state controlled without commercials or anything. We were in the middle of building a modern socialist society. Foreign "light entertainment" for kids was Soviet ballet shows, Eastern Block puppet movies and some artistic Yugoslavian animated stories. But once a year, for one hour on Christmas Eve, Disney animations came on TV and we all loved it!! Those of us who experienced that still feel a sense of something lighthearted when we see these old clips and somehow that joy has been passed on to younger generations as tradition. cart-Talk 17:28, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
CommentRhododendrites could you pleas remove the distraction in the background? -- Rodrigo.Argenton 01:54, 22 December 2016
@Rodrigo.Argenton: Unfortunately, since I will be traveling over the next several days (and because I don't feel confident enough in my Photoshop abilities to do so quickly), I don't think I'll be able to do this before it's archived. Probably best to just decline (or promote if it would still scrape by :) ), but I appreciate the feedback/opportunity to improve it. Rhododendrites 05:15, 23 December 2016 (UTC) Hi there, Rhododendrites and Rodrigo.Argenton. I've tried something (therefore I cannot vote anymore). I hope it is better. If not, don't hesitate to revert ! --Jebulon 17:45, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

Comment A little bit noisy and disturbing elements at the top. Please check your image. --XRay 06:46, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
@XRay: Done I didn't remove a lot of noise, but hopefully enough. Thanks. Rhododendrites 22:16, 22 January 2017 (UTC) Support Thanks. Not the best but good enough. --XRay 17:21, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
