Pictures?[edit]

The same picture is used twice on this page, one merely a retouched version of the other. Surely someone must have other example pictures of this delicious food. -Rikoshi (talk) 00:06, 8 April 2009 (UTC)


Note on Translation[edit]

Much of this page has been translated from the German version of the Sacher Torte page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by HicTamenVivit (talkcontribs) 02:18, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Bolzano/Bozen[edit]

Though minor, I changed the wording in the introduction where Bolzano is mentioned to "Bolzano/Bozen", because South Tyrol, as an autonomous region in Italy with German and Italian as official languages, uses this form in publication for city names. I will try to change that throughout the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mweinshel (talkcontribs) 11:42, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

The reason[edit]

3
Nr 1
Nr 2

The original image was the image nr 1, and it was in the article from 12 July 2005 - until June 2011. The same editor who took picture nr 2 removed it June 2011 and repaced it with Nr 2, own work. Now the image was retouched, so it is back again. The second image (Nr 2) shows a picture with a rather lot of whipped cream, slightly messy and the slice of Sachertorte, in a way that the cakes layers are not seen properly, and the cake is almost hidden in between the napkin and the whipped cream. The first image is much better, showing clearly the two layers of chocolate sponge cake with a thin layer of apricot jam in the middle, and the dark chocolate icing on the top with the chocolate stamp, and also shows a better display and looks more luxurious. Also the visual balance is much better in picture nr 1.

Wikipedia:Conflict of interest. The same Editor who took the picture nr 2 was the same, who also initiated the change, and that would be lobbying for own work and own picture, even if I do understand the creators feelings for liking their own pictures, it’s not a good enough reason. But I would be happy to use any picture from this editor, if I am presented with a picture same class as nr 1!! Until then, we leave picture nr 1 in the article. Or, as a compromise, we can use both... But nr 1 has to be in the lead. Added the other one lower down.Hafspajen (talk) 13:57, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Fair enough! When (if) I ever return to Vienna I shall try to take a better picture. --Simfan34 (talk) 16:21, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

I like the second image better. Gune (talk) 05:34, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

'Well, I like it too, actually. And it is in the article too. Hafspajen (talk) 13:00, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
  • It would be great to have a photo of the cake as served at Hotel Sacher, but the cake itself is blurry in the phoo. Replaced. Same problem here, Wikipedia:Conflict of interest. The same Editor who took the picture nr 3 was the same, who also initiated the change, and that would be lobbying for own work and own picture and it is NOT better than the lede picture, and sincerely I start to get tired about this fights. Hotel Sacher's "Original Sacher Torte" sold at the the Hotel Sacher, is the picture we will have in the lead. Hafspajen (talk) 21:24, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
I have no interest in fighting. This article does not have to feature my photo if editors decide not to use it, but please remember to WP:AGF about other contributors. The cake in current lede photo is definitely blurry, and I thought I could help. - Illustratedjc (talk) 09:23, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
In that case I am sorry, but still it is best with the Original Torte in the lead. The lead picture should have a picture of the original cake slice. Hafspajen (talk) 11:44, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

The 2nd image is better but as long as neither is removed I don't know if it really matters. I will personally undo any edits that remove either image. Gune (talk) 23:46, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Recipe[edit]

I've removed the "The Original recipe obtained through the courtesy of Mrs. Anna Sacher". However good the source may be, Wikipedia is not a recipe book. AndrewWTaylor (talk) 12:55, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
