El imagen (la mapa) de HispanoamericaEdit

Spanish speakers in the Americas (orthographic projection).svg

Hola, te escribo porque creo que la mapa de Hispanoamerica (tu obra) no es corecta. Me refiero de Canada. He mirada la fuente de Canada y me parece, que comprediste mal lo que se escribe allá. En página 4 hay "Más del 45% del total de la población hispana reside en la provincia de Ontario, otro 24% en la de Quebec y 13% en la Columbia Británica, lo que suma casi 83% del total de latinos concentrados solo en estas tres provincias." Pero estas procentajes coresponden al porcion de la poblacion latina, no la total. Es decir en Caanda hay 741 761 personas de origen latino. Eso responde a 2,4 % de poblacion total. De estos 741 mil viven 45% en Ontario (178 mil personas). Espero que hayas comprendido lo que estoy argumentando y que corrigirás el dibujo. Saludos --Unpocoloco (talk) 10:38, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Entiendo, pero en Ontario no viven 178 mil personas, en Québec si 178,625 mil hispanoparlantes, pero quizás te refieres a que en Ontario viven 337,650 mil hispanoparlantes, y la ecuación difiere al total de la población de Canadá y no con el total de la población de cada entidad canadiense.--Giggette (talk) 23:59, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Aztec mapEdit

I see you still resist starting a discussion on the talkpage. Instead, I'm starting it here. Looking at those maps, there's obviously far more difference than simply "dominance" between two areas. There's a different shape to the entire empire. What is the cause of the differences between the maps? Chipmunkdavis (talk) 18:56, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Thank you, well, first I did not still resist starting a discussion on the talkpage because this discussion started here weeks ago, and not only on the talkpage of this map, and it was finally closed there and on Commons:Administrators' noticeboard, and yes the only differente of these maps is the dominance between two areas, that's all. Both maps have sources but some more reliable sources than others, only the Wikipedias should choose to use for the articles. And this map was firstly created than the other. --Giggette (talk) 01:52, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
I've shifted your response here, so I can follow the thread of conversation. A discussion on the file talkpage is different from the template talkpage. Looking at the maps, it's quite clear that the colouring in of territory between Teozapotlan and Xoconochco is not the only difference. The maps look very different. Why? Chipmunkdavis (talk) 18:15, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Supposedly it is the only difference, the map was created basing from the following sources.
1.- [1] by the Department of History by Ian Mladjov, University of Michigan.
2.- Aztec Warfare: Imperial Expansion and Political Control by Ross Hassig, University of Oklahoma Press, according a user with his map on COMMONS in use
3.- [2] Encyclopædia Britannica 1994
4.- As such more sources [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10], [11]
The template must have the two versions without distinction. --Giggette (talk) 19:01, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
No, it's wrong : Gengiskanhg, the author of the original map never quoted these sources. And Maunus said that there is no such map in Ross Hassig's Aztec Warfare. El Comandante (talk) 19:06, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Maunus said to be the author and his map was created by Ross hassig's Aztec Warfare here. --Giggette (talk) 19:11, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
No, it's wrong and you know it. Maunus said that he made an original research compiling various maps of journeys of Aztec armies from Ross Hassig's Aztec Warfare, which contains no map of the Aztec Empire. Also, Maunus said that he recommends the use of Yavidaxiu's map. El Comandante (talk) 19:17, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Look, this map File:Aztec Empire ME (orthographic projection).svg was created according by existing maps on COMMONS and in use as Maunus's map but I wanted to add references that's why I asked to the authors and Maunus accepted to be the author based by Ross Hassigs book Aztec Warfare. I'm not wrong and of course I'm not lying [12].--Giggette (talk) 19:28, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
And of course you know that when I saw that Maunus pretended that his map was based on Aztec Warfare, I asked him what was the exact page of the map that he used, and then he admitted there was no map of the Aztec Empire in Aztec Warfare and that he compiled various maps with absolutely no direct link with the Aztec Empire, just maps of different journeys of Aztec armies. And where an imperial army passes, it's not always considered as a territory depent on an Empire, if there is no treaty establishing such a relation of tributary or client state. That's why these territories are NOT included in the Aztec Empire by true specialists such as Michael E. Smith, Frances Berdan, Michael Coe, Leonardo López Luján and all the scholars peer-reviewing Arqueología Mexicana. El Comandante (talk) 19:46, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
You repeat the same over and over again, probably these territories are NOT included by "true" specialists but others editors YES include these territories, where an imperial army passes, that's why both maps must be in the template. Furthermore we can see these territories with others maps in use "File:Aztecempirelocation.png" or "File:Aztecexpansion.png". --Giggette (talk) 19:58, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Just a bunch of maps made by unknown authors or not mesoamericanists. You are NOT able to quote a single specialized source to support your map, while Sémhur's is supported by a lot of very famous specialists. What else? El Comandante (talk) 21:16, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

I can explain : the map that Giggette wants to impose everywhere is based on this Gengiskanhg map, itself based on no identifiable source, and more or less supported by another map by Maunus, which is an unreliable original research, as Maunus admitted it, compiling various maps of journeys of Aztec armies from Ross Hassig's Aztec Warfare. Instead, the map created by Sémhur is based on this map created by Yavidaxiu and based on a special issue of the very specialized and renowed mesoamericanist review Arqueología Mexicana published by mexican archaeological authorities, and also supported by recent and specialized sources such as the worldwide famous book The Aztecs by Michael E. Smith, which provides full explanations about the name and type of dependency of each tributary or client state (primary sources supporting this map originally created by Frances Berdan can be read in her book Aztec Imperial Strategies). It is VERY clear that Giggette's map, which is NOT supported by Ross Hassig's Aztec Warfare (as Maunus conceded it), and is therefore only supported by non specialized sources, is VERY LESS reliable than Sémhur's, as Maunus himself said. But she doesn't want to accept these facts, probably because she's a mexican nationalist wanting to glorify Aztec empire exagerating its power. El Comandante (talk) 18:57, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the summary El Comandante. I have however seen maps showing an extended contiguous Aztec Empire offline, in museums and such. Has the research developed recently? Chipmunkdavis (talk) 22:17, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
The first very detailed map I know is the famous one by Robert H. Barlow in 1949, revised by Frances Berdan in 1996, and then by Michael E. Smith in 2013. It's true that older maps relying upon a vague methodology like Giggette's are still commonly used by unskilled people ; maybe sometimes it is possible that some people supposed to be specialists of Mesoamerica ignore that subject or accept a too less scientific approach for popularization medias (see for example Eduardo Matos Moctezuma using an incorrect Commons file for a TV show, not including Cozumel in Mesoamerica)... El Comandante (talk) 23:27, 4 June 2013 (UTC)


So Giggette, you have no explanation for the other differences? For example, why is Teotitlan from Maunus' map included in the empire on your map? Chipmunkdavis (talk) 22:17, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes I already saw that Maunus' map doesn't include Teotitlan as part of the Empire but yes Encyclopædia Britannica's map. --Giggette (talk) 18:47, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
But what is the reason for the difference? Chipmunkdavis (talk) 20:07, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Well, Teotitlan as others areas are where the aztec imperial army passes and some authors not always considered these areas as territories depend of the Aztec Empire. I think these areas should be included in a single map of the Aztec Empire with light green, and not to discriminate authors who include them, that's my opinion. --Giggette (talk) 22:54, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Are you able to rework your map to show the areas that are light green then? Chipmunkdavis (talk) 23:03, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Yes sure I can changed it, but "my map" is not exactly my map because I reuploaded it when I noticed that it was replaced by El Comandante's request [13] from French Wikipedia, and now the original map or "my reuploaded map" is not longer in use as originally, only this replaced map without pior consensus before "update", that's my disagreement or dispute with El Comandante on COMMONS 1, 2, 3, 4 and finally [14] and he can't understand that he must have uploaded another file with its sources and have consensus on wikis to change it and don't commit edit war, although El Comandante was blocked by insult me many times (personal attacks) he stills as you can see, just tired of arguing. --Giggette (talk) 23:26, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Well if you change it, then we have two clear maps and everyone wins. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 16:28, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

File correctionEdit

Given the minor nature of this I figured I would simply discuss it here instead of on the file's discussion page. On the file Spanish speakers in the Americas (orthographic projection) the numbers are all given using a decimal "." point with the exception of Belize which uses a "," comma. I thought it would be a simple fix for the next time you update the file. Regards Coinmanj (talk) 08:23, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

Permiso para usar contenido?Edit

Hola, soy Nuevo, y por mas que leo, no me queda totalmente claro como debo pedirte permiso para usar varias de tus creaciones, que informacion debo proporcionarte, etc. Si me pudieras orientar te lo agradeceria. --Omar10594 (talk) 23:28, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Si, entiendo lo de saber ingles, cuando mire el autor de las imagines que queria usar, (que segun yo, eres tu, aunque el nombre es diferente, al darle click al nombre (Eddo) me manda a ti) habla español, pues mas facil (para mi) escribir en mi idioma. Lo de firmar, muy cierto, es casi lo primero que se ve al entrar a tu pagina, y se me olvido por completo, lo recordare. Ahora bien, respecto a las imagines que quiero usar, como lo comente antes, el autor aparece como Eddo, pero al darle click me manda a tu pagina, entonces tenia la duda de si eras tu el autor. Las imagines son: Tlaloc.svg y Mayahuel.svg, ambas tienen la misma licencia (Tambien planeamos usar Xochiquetzal V.png pero esta tiene una licencia de dominio publico asi que no creo que haya problema, aun asi se incluira el nombre de autor en las imagenes que se usaran), y basicamente dicen que debo hacer atribucion al autor, de la manera especificada por el, osea, que debo preguntar la manera "Especifica" al autor, por eso me vi en la tarea de buscarlo y preguntarle y por eso comente en tu pagina, pues creo que eres el autor. La imagen seria para unas cervezas artesanales, se quieren poner en las botellas (Una etiqueta con la imagen) para su venta, las imagenes no serian modificadas en lo mas minimo, simplemente se tiene un cierto espacio para ponerlas, por lo que no saldrian "completas", el tipo de atribucion que se piensa hacer, es el nombre que especifique el autor, en la misma botella, y en el sitio web, se pondria informacion mas completa (si es necesario), sobre el autor. No estoy seguro si esta es lo forma correcta de responder en tu pagina, pero mirando otros comentario, debo suponer que si, de antemano gracias, realmente esperaba que tardaras en responder por la fecha de tu ultimo comentario en tu pagina. Nose si sea el navegador o la pagina, pero algunas palabras me las "corrige", pero eso a lo major encuentras unas palabras "raras". Omar10594 (talk) 03:16, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
a ok, entonces si uso esas imagines fuera de Commons, no ocupo poner creditos, aun asi pondre una pequeña referencia. Gracias por todo, leere un poco mas de Wikimedia Commons para entenderle mejor, :D. Gracias por todo Omar10594 (talk) 06:40, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Joaquín Velázquez de LeónEdit

Hi Giggette, I found one of your files (Joaquín Velázquez de León.jpg) but I don't understand your description of it. According to you, it's self-portrait by Joaquín Velázquez de León, but then you specify that the author is "Ramón P. Cantó". In addition, the dates seem to be wrong. Clearly, it was not made on 8 October 2010, and Joaquín Velázquez de León did not live from 1870 to 1907 (he lived from 1803 to 1882). I found the same lithograph in a book published in 1885, but it doesn't mention who is the author nor its date of creation, so I would like to know if you could verify the information you provided. Thank you! --José Gnudista (talk) 13:32, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
