Category:Reform dress and the 1890s bicycle suitEdit

The 1890s "bicycle suit" or "bicycle dress" was worn only for riding a bicycle or limited other strenuous gymnastic/athletic activities (not including tennis). It was worn by vigorous young women who were feeling ever so slightly daring (since the bicycle suit was not for the ultra-conservative or the shy), but these women were not necessarily strong feminists, or supporters of dress reform in other areas. Probably some of them were in favor of greater female freedom of dress to some degree, but (unlike the "bloomers" of 1850) wearing a bicycle suit was not a strong personal feminist statement. Churchh (talk) 09:37, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi Churchh,
Reform dress has not much to do with feminism. It was a health thing (like health food [1]), it had to do with being able to move without restraint, breathing normally. Skirts, sleeves and necks a little shorter. No corset, or a more relaxt reform corset. See also: [2]. Aiko (talk) 21:18, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
Advocates of reform dress were by definition trying to change (reform) things, whether motivated by reasons of health, feminism, "aesthetic" artistic influences, or a combination of two or three of these. Women who wore bicycle suits weren't necessarily trying to change anything at all (though Jessie in File:Bicycle suit punch 1895.jpg is obviously an exception). Churchh (talk) 17:34, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
Hi Churchh, glad to see you back on my talk page.
Categorising is all about communication and helping users to find the right pictures and/or information. Categorising is not per se about finding the exact definition. Your motivation may be right from another point of view, but is it also right from the point of view of helpful categorisation? Aiko (talk) 17:48, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 AnnouncementEdit

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open!Edit

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

meme / internetmemeEdit

Hallo Aiko,

Bedankt voor je commentaar op de uitspraak van 'internetmeme' Over jouw opmerking over internetmeme, het is een samenstelling van internet en meme. Een meme is een eenheid van culturele overdracht (van Dale 13de druk) zoals een gen een eenheid is van genetische overdracht. Ik gebruik het woord dagelijks' juist in die betekenis en dan is natuurlijk de combinatie van 'memen' en 'genen' wel leuk. in de van Dale wordt niet specifiek aangegeven dat het op de 'Engelse' manier moet worden uitgesproken, zij geven n.l. aan dat het afkomstig is van mimesis.

Dus voorlopig houd ik het maar op de Nederlandse uitspraak.

Marcel coenders (talk) 12:01, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

Helder. Dank voor je reactie.
Vraagje. Wat doe je eigenlijk in situaties waar meerdere uitspraken goed zijn? - Aiko (talk) 12:45, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

Je bedankjeEdit

Hallo Aiko, ik zag je bedankje. Altijd fijn natuurlijk, overkomt me op Commons niet zo vaak. Wat vond je leuk aan deze foto? Groet, Apdency (talk) 19:20, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

Hoi Apdency, was het een foto van het Poortgebouw ("de roze augurk")? Ik word erg blij van mooie foto's van mijn stad en van al die mensen die de moeite nemen om eropuit te trekken om dit soort foto's te maken, voor Wikipedia. Ik wilde je hartelijk bedanken voor de erg goed gelukte foto's van dit nieuwe en bijzondere gebouw, dat zo ingeklemd staat in een overvol stukje stad. Groet, - Aiko (talk) 08:02, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
Jazeker, daar was je bedankje van donderdag voor. Leuk om even over je motief te horen. En inderdaad, er stonden daar al gebouwen genoeg, maar kennelijk kon er nog wel wat bij. Die bijnaam kende ik trouwens nog niet. Apdency (talk) 08:21, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
