Archiving[edit]

The archiving suggests you're taking a break. My comments weren't meant as any kind of assault on your value or competence, and I apologize if it came across otherwise. I have always appreciated your work, and I accept that people have every right to take a break. We can talk more about this any time. - Dank (push to talk) 20:24, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

File:Caroline Pafford Miller historical marker.jpg[edit]

Hi, would you be able to do a much tighter crop of the marker so we can see what it says? Thanks, Yoninah (talk) 21:59, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

When did you post the Taal Volcano animation?[edit]

The filename was: Phreatic eruption of Taal Volcano, 12 January 2020 (reduced).gif. You posted it as the picture for "In the news," somewhere around 14 January. I would like to know the actual date, and the time in UTC. I checked the revision histories for the Main Page and for In the news, but couldn't find this information there. If I ever need this kind of information again, is there a way in which I can look it up myself? Ubzerver (talk) 08:35, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Pic crop[edit]

You helped me with many images, - here I come again. In (my) File:Crocus, Eibingen.jpg, black parts are due to my wrong cropping on my PC. Could you crop them in the present image? ... or teach me how to do that? ... or would you think I better upload a pic I croppped correctly, and have this deleted? ... or what? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:45, 9 March 2020 (UTC)

Never mind, I found help already. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:53, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

Pictured / shown[edit]

Hi David

I reverted your change from "pictured" to "shown", as captions on the main page always say "pictured" that's the standard usage, and it is consistent across the different sections. There is no conceptual difference betwen the terms "pictured", "depicted" and "shown" anyway, they all mean the same thing. In any case once a change you make is reverted, you should never reinstate it that change, that is considered WP:WHEEL warring. Please self-revert. Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 16:17, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

I reverted your change from "pictured" to "shown",
Amakuru: My change was from "pictured" to "diagram shown". These differ substantially, as the former conveyed that the actual specimens were pictured (hence the error report to which I responded).
When you changed "diagram shown" to "diagram pictured", it was not a reversion (in either a technical sense or a meaningful one).
as captions on the main page always say "pictured" that's the standard usage, and it is consistent across the different sections.
Having focused on the main page's images for years (and routinely participated in TFA image curation and issue resolution, at a coordinator's request), I can assure you that "shown" is our longstanding alternative wording, used when specifying a picture (e.g., "map shown", "satellite image shown", "video shown", "depiction shown", "frontispiece shown", "schematic shown", etc.) – not just at TFA, but across the main page.
For various reasons, I haven't been very active recently. (I responded to this ping by Floquenbeam.) Perhaps the usage of "shown" has declined amid my absence. If so, I seriously doubt that its omission was calculated. (If you're aware of a discussion in which such a decision was reached, please cite it.) In any case, the practice isn't something that I invented or imagined.
There is no conceptual difference betwen the terms "pictured", "depicted" and "shown" anyway, they all mean the same thing.
The difference is primarily one of style. It's linguistically clumsy to state that a picture is pictured, as discussed in the past (sometimes amid edit requests).
In any case once a change you make is reverted, you should never reinstate it that change, that is considered WP:WHEEL warring.
As noted above, I don't consider your change a reversion, as the result differs materially from previous revisions. You're entitled to disagree (and I sincerely appreciate your willingness to message me with this request, in spite of that view), but there's no need to address me as though I'm a newbie.
Regardless, I'm not here to incite conflict. If you still want me to self-revert, please let me know. —David Levy 18:03, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
  • Since I got a ping, I'll opine:
    First, David, thanks for fixing the technical issue last night. I suspected you were the person for the job.
    Second, at the risk of alienating you both, I think the argument about "pictured" or "shown" is about 98% pointless. They're both fine, and arguments that either one is better than the other aren't really persuasive to me. Rather than argue about what's marginally better, what edit(s) count as technically a revert, and what's technically standard practice, why not just say "Isn't it odd, the silly things that can sometimes come between people Floq respects", and leave it at whatever wording is there now (I purposefully haven't looked, although from context above I gather David would be the lucky one). Or, if you'd like me to flip a coin and report the results, I could do that too, if you trust me to. --Floquenbeam (talk) 18:30, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
Floquenbeam: To be clear, I don't believe that a reversion is ever justifiable on the basis of a technicality. I reverted Amakuru's edit because I viewed it as a new change stemming from an erroneous belief (which I aspired to address in my summary).
I also want to stress that I don't perceive the matter as one of Earth-shattering importance. In the interest of goodwill, if Amakuru finds my above reply uncompelling, I'm happy to forgo a coin flip and relinquish the status quo. —David Levy 18:52, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
Ah well, in the face of such abundant goodwill and reasonableness how can I possibly be the one to break it! I still think we should just say "pictured" for all pictures but it is, as you say a minor matter in the grand scheme of things, so let's just leave it as is for today.  — Amakuru (talk) 20:00, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
