Happy Holidays 2022/2023![edit]

Minster of the Holy Cross, Schwäbisch Gmünd. The imposing straw star in the centre is about 5 m tall and has been used every year for decades, thus it is an important part of local Christmas traditions. Happy Holidays, Cart

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
Щасливого Різдва! З Новим роком!
Joyeux Noël! Bonne année!
¡Feliz Navidad y próspero año nuevo!
Buon Natale e felice anno nuovo!
Frohe Weihnachten und ein gutes neues Jahr!

Dear Cart, at the end of this year I would like to thank you for many things – be it helpful hints and corrections on the FP page, be it your great help in completing this photo or your hints about that one. I have learned a lot from you. I especially want to thank you again for your compassion and for your editing of my photos of late Nikita! Please excuse me for not having come back to this. I took the photos you improved for commemorative prints which we love very much. I did not update the original files here (yet) because the intensive work (still) hurts too much.

For me it was a difficult year; I was sick more often, in autumn we moved to a new flat in another city, and that was very exhausting. The move was especially difficult for our three cats who are still alive, but in the meantime they have arrived very well, they obviously like the new flat and have really come alive; even our oldest cat is fit and lively again like in her youth. She especially likes the fact that you can sometimes watch squirrels in the nearby trees from the windows – that’s rather unusual in this area of Germany, especially in the middle of a city ;–).

You described to me once this year how you are doing in south-west Sweden. I sincerely hope that the past year also brought you a lot of good things. I wish you relaxing holidays between the years and all the best, hope, confidence and strength for the new year that is about to begin! May it fulfil your wishes and bring you much joy! — Aristeas (talk) 13:59, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oh my, Aristeas, Im quite overwhelmed by your kind message! I'm glad I could help out in some small capacity. Glad to hear that the cats have found other furry "friends" and that you have settled after the move. Not much has happened here during the year, I'm hoping that will change in 2023. I'm wishing all of you a great holiday! All the best, --Cart (talk) 16:49, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Assessments template, com-nom parameter for FPs promoted via delist-and-replace[edit]

Hello Cart, just a short question. I have manually processed two delist-and-replace nominations (1, 2). But I was not able to find a working value for the com-nom of the {{Assessments}} template on the description page of the two images which were promoted by that action (1, 2). I have helped for now by creating redirects (1, 2) with the name of the two newly promoted images to the two delist-and-replace nominations. But that’s a workaround or a hack, not a perfect solution ;–). Do you know a way to specify the com-nom parameter in order to make the {{Assessments}} tenmplate on the page of the new picture link directly to the delist-and-replace nomination? If not, no problem, I just wanted to ask … All the best! --Aristeas (talk) 09:18, 25 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Aristeas, your solution with the redirect page is not a hack, but a good way to fix a tricky problem. The {{Assessments}} template doesn't cover all the things that goes on on the FPC forum. It simply states: "Move the nomination page so it fits one of the patterns listed above." In these cases, if you moved the nomination page to suit the configuration, you would get the same setup with a redirect to the moved page, so it's simply a matter of where the redirect is placed. But in a worst-case-scenario when moving a page, the original "removal nom"-page could get deleted and we would lose the vital "/removal/" tag in the file title, and that should be preserved for the records if someone was to make statistics or some other research about removed FPs. You did well! --Cart (talk) 11:36, 25 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi Cart, thank you very much for your detailled answer and explanation! I am glad that I did the right thing. I’ll remember that for further delist-and-replace cases … All the best, --Aristeas (talk) 15:33, 25 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
