Regrading Amrita rao Uploading picEdit


Estão pondo minhas fotos para eliminação. Foto da igreja antiga de Brumado, Praça Armindo Azevedo em Brumado, e outras fotos antigas, porém as imagens são livre para uso em qualquer página, ou trabalho, desde que cite a fonte e a fonte já está citada, mas eu não sei como tirar aquele formulário onde diz :"Eu, titular de tal imagem e blablablá...."; quando vou carregar as imagen não dá uma opção de mostrar de imediato onde está a permissão e quando procuro uma opção dizendo que está em algum sítio da net, vem um monte de porém muito complicado. As imagens são permitidas.

You don't think it is necessary to qualify the word carriage to indicate the intended content of the category?Edit

Yes (in haste) I see what you mean and I agree with you but you do seem to ignore (again) what I have told you above. I quote from above "Mules have for the moment been lumped with horses because so many photographers cannot tell the difference or do not know there is a difference - similar with donkeys(!). They can all be sorted out from within the horses category at a later stage."

Mules and donkeys are common, zebras for carriages are magnificently exotic. Perhaps the zebras can just go under animal-drawn carriages until Commons has a real pile of their images.

Why do you turn these things upside down?

If it isn’t your mother-tongue you are very expert with English. You are highly knowledgeable about horse-drawn carriages.

A ‘’horse-drawn carriage’’ is a carriage that might be drawn by a horse or horses. It is distinct from a carriage intended to be drawn by a steam locomotive or a TGV. But less distinct from one drawn by mules or donkeys

You don't think it is necessary to qualify the word carriage to indicate the intended content of the category?

(Incidentally my dictionary provides the compounds: Carriage-beast; carriage-bullock and carriage cattle.)

My dictionary gives these meanings for ‘’’carriage’’’:

would there ever be mules at the other end of this vehicle?

Hurriedly, Regards, Eddaido (talk) 03:40, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

@Eddaido: Easy question: If you don't know what animal is pushing the carriage, why do you moved the carriages to horse drawn carriages? If you don't know the colour of a car, why do you move everything to "red cars"? It's not only illogical, it's misleading, and completely necessary, as the word "carriage" was serving its purpose perfectly well.-- Darwin Ahoy! 11:06, 2 July 2018 (UTC)
@DarwIn: Hi Darwin, I still have the uneasy feeling from you that you are inside out or looking at a mirror image or something. Do you remember this: "Mules have for the moment been lumped with horses because so many photographers cannot tell the difference or do not know there is a difference - similar with donkeys(!). They can all be sorted out from within the horses category at a later stage."?
Could this word necessary from you be a Freudian slip? You say in your last paragraph above "it's misleading, and completely necessary" where one would expect you to write unnecessary?
Sorry I have been distracted for some days, I regret the delay. Regards, Eddaido (talk) 09:20, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
That's precisely because sometimes it's difficult to tell mules from horses (though not to a trained eye, I believe), that those vehicles could never be lumped together under "horse-drawn carriages". I know for a fact that mules are a preferred power force in Portugal for pulling carriages, it should be quite rare that that job is performed by an horse, which is more expensive to keep (and less fit for the job, apparently). Should we lump everything together under "mule-drawn carriages", then?-- Darwin Ahoy! 15:41, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
That's right. I see no good reason not to lump all the Portuguese vehicles under the mule-drawn category until some enlightened editor sorts them out. Would Portuguese Royalty have used mules too? I'm well aware many South American countries use or used a lot of mules not to mention south-west US stagecoaches. I expect there will be differences in harnesses for mules but is there any difference in the actual vehicle? It has always been my intention that this mix should be temporary. I haven't finished the job-as-I-see-it. I lost most of my impetus a month or so ago, partly because no-one else was interested and partly for other non-WP reasons.
If I have made my point with my dictionary extract above please would you remove it or archive it. Its ugly. I didn't know of your latest response and I regret my delay in checking.
Can I outline my proposals for animal-powered transport to you as a prelude to putting them up for discussion — should you think that is necessary - I'm afraid it would suffer from lack of interest. Regards, Eddaido (talk) 01:32, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
@Eddaido: I myself can tell a mule from an horse (and even more from a donkey) with some easiness, and I expect others are able to do that as well. The vehicles are exactly the same, as far as I know - that's why they can never been sorted out by type of animal power.-- Darwin Ahoy! 01:37, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
That's good. Would a Portuguese nobleman attend a state occasion in a carriage drawn by mules? Eddaido (talk) 01:42, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Why not?-- Darwin Ahoy! 11:43, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Ha ha, let me rephrase that question. Did Portuguese noblemen usually attend state occasions in carriages drawn by mules? (2) Is it fair to record in Wikipedia that mules were primarily built and used by the Iberian nations and their colonies / former colonies in Latin America? Eddaido (talk) 01:53, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
In the image on the right the Deadwood Stage equipage incorporated extra wind-resistance but there was no remark from the caption writer.
what are these animals?
What draws the stagecoach at the left?

Thanks for: Paraty categorizationEdit

Darwin thank you so much for your hard work on categorizing architecture in Paraty. I'm learning so much from that. I'm hoping to do the same for photographs taken in Cachoeira, Bahia and other municipalities I've visited in the Recôncavo. Take care. Prburley (talk)

Hello, DarwIn! I noticed your message on File:170424-purple-hair-goth-fashion-influencer-outfits-clothing-2.jpg and wanted to add some clarification. Both the image (which is sourced to the subject) and the email address from which I forwarded the license release are found on the page I cited as the image source. Please confirm the data. Thank you for your assistance. Feather Jonah II (talk) 11:26, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

@Feather Jonah II: Hello, I've just answered your message. A simple reply with a confirmation from the author is enough.-- Darwin Ahoy! 21:04, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

Cannot Get an image reviewedEdit

Dear Darwin,

Im writing this failing to do a supposedly simple task of changing the Wiki BIo Image of my company CEO. I have a creative with me which is solely owned by our company which I would like to replace the current image on .Profile Where the image needs to be Replaced The article was created by en ex-employee whose email I cant access now.The same image is currently the Profile Pic of her on LinkedIn. This image is not published anywhere else online. I followed all the instructions specified by Mr. Paulo as in Ticket "[Ticket#2018073010002083] [Ticket#2018073010002092] release of خلود العميان.jpg " but It is still not reviewed. So what shall I do now to get this image to show up instead of the current one?

Via FrancigenaEdit

Bonjour DarwIn, ce fichier que vous avez téléchargé indique la région "Lazio" dans la description, au centre de l'Italie, cependant les coordonnées (lieu de la prise de vue) portent en Lombardie, à Mandello del Lario, au nord de l'Italie. Pourriez-vous vérifier quelle est la donnée à retenir, et corriger, s'il-vous-plaît ? Cordialement,--Pạtạfisik 07:13, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

Bonsoir, Patafisik. Je pense que en cette situation le lieu en la description est le correct, parce que cette paysage ne ressemble pas les montagnes des Alpes de les coordonnées. C'est meilleur simplement effacer les coordonnées dans le fichier, non? -- Darwin Ahoy! 14:16, 7 August 2018 (UTC)
Bonjour, les Projets Rome et Lombardie sur n'arrivent pas à une conclusion unanime, je viens d'écrire à l'auteur, j'attends sa réponse. Cordialement,--Pạtạfisik 10:50, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

Help needed: architectural urnsEdit

Question: what would be a proper category for a decorative, ornamental urn, the kind seen in Baroque and Neoclassical architecture in Brazil? We have "Flame urns (ornament)" but not "Urns" as an architectural element, as in something here: [Building Ornaments].

Should I just use "urns"?
