Re: Possible tornadoEdit

First of all, sorry for the delay in getting back to you. The rain shaft was rotating, giving it the appearance of a heavily rain-wrapped tornado. It occurred northeast of Highway 403 in a forested area, where there were several reports of broken branches and some snapped trees. The tree damage may also have been due to straight-line winds, which were very strong that day. --Anonymous Macaw (talk) 20:02, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Do you have images of the damaged trees? What was the trees' falling shape like? Did trees lay straight in a line or like Mikado sticks? Sturmjäger (talk) 07:32, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Why follow edit?Edit

Hello Pierre, why this edit? --Jean11 (talk) 16:22, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

@Jean11: Hi: "Category:Innenstadt (Villach)" does not exist and should not be there. There is no point to link to a non-existant category. If you ever create this category, then you could add it, but I see no point into creating it since there is already Category:Flood in Villach which is a subcategory of Category:Villach already with the picture Pierre cb (talk) 03:48, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
Pierre simply because the category has not been created, which is not an argument for removing this. Innenstadt (Villach) is a district, so an entirely different meaning. --Jean11 (talk) 10:18, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
@Jean11: So create it. As I said it is useless to have a category indicated on an image if it is leading to nothing. Pierre cb (talk) 10:21, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
This is not correct, because it is used to sort the images in a virtual category, and if there are enough images in the virtual category to create this only. This is common practice here at commons. --Jean11 (talk) 10:31, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
@Jean11: First news I have of such a practice and I'm an old fart in Commons. Can you cite the rule on that? Pierre cb (talk) 14:40, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

File:Downdraft Wind shear-2.jpgEdit

Hello Pierre, I believe you've made two category errors with this photo. For it to be "virga" there would have to be rain in the equation falling from the clouds. There was no rain. It is a downdraft wind shear illuminated by the sun, well below the horizon in the opposite sky (western). Also, you put it in the yellow sunsets category, and it is a photo of the "eastern" sky, at near dusk. The sun set 15 minutes earlier, and in the "western" sky. It is a "twilight or Dusk" photo, not sunset. You're going to have to get more creative with these categories this This event is extremely rare. This is the first time I've seen this in 15 years living out here. Your friend:-Pocketthis (talk) 16:14, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
