Catholic Wikiproject Ratings[edit]

If the thing that just brought you to my talk page is that I just rated your favorite page, I have rated several hundred pages in the last couple of days. If you have a complaint, go ahead and file it here. It may take me a few days to deal with it, so don't think I am ignoring you. Just a reminder, just in case you are upset that I rated your favorite page "Low" importance or something like that, it doesn't mean your topic isn't important. It probably just means that I personally feel the topic, when in considered with the entire breadth of teachings and life of the Catholic church may be of "Low" importance. Your average church, school, etc. doesn't really help someone that is trying to understand Catholicism much. If you disagree, feel free to state why or bring it up on the Wikiproject page. Don't just state it on the talk page for the article, because I may not be actively following that page. Thank-you. Marauder40 (talk) 16:59, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Quick question[edit]

Hi. I was just wondering if you could help me with a quick question. I see that you deleted the photo I added to the article Clare of Assisi. In the revision history, I see you listed the reason as a "notability issue".

I'm not sure I understand. I didn't add the photo because the statue itself (or the church where it's from) is "noteable". I just added the photo to help illustrate Saint Claire, as depicted in statue form. The specific statue might not be noteable perse, but I thought it was a good example of a depiction of Saint Claire.

I understand the need for things on Wikipedia to be noteable. But many mundane things are pictured on Wikipedia, for the purpose of illustrating things, events, ideas, etc.

If there's something I'm not understanding here, please help me out. Thanks for your help. Billertl (talk) 19:13, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

I deleted it because it honestly seems like a case of adding pictures of my local church's statues because they look neat. The picture of that statue doesn't add anything more then the existing pictures of Clare in the article. It is just another artist's representation, like the 100s if not thousands of others out there.Marauder40 (talk) 20:07, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
OK, that's a fair argument. I agree. But we could just as easily delete the rest of the images of Saint Claire, from off the article. There was no image of a statue on the article. But I'll respect your judgement. Billertl (talk) 23:01, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
