File:Carved whalebone whistle dated 1821. London. 8 mm long.JPG[edit]

Dear nagualdesign:

Thank you so much for spotting this careless mistake of mine. I have changed the length in one place from 8 mm to the correct 8 cm and I have requested that the file heading be changed to show 8 cm - the correct length. So, hopefully, there is no need for you to do any extra work. I really appreciate your help in correcting this error. All best wishes, John Hill (talk) 22:41, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Oh good. Thanks for that. Kind regards, nagualdesign 00:16, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

POTD notification[edit]

Hi Joe,

Just to let you know, the Featured Picture File:Percival Lowell observing Venus from the Lowell Observatory in 1914.jpg is due to make an appearance as Picture of the Day on December 12, 2014. If you get a chance, you can check and improve the caption at Template:POTD/2014-12-12. Thank you for all of your contributions! — Crisco 1492 (talk) 00:56, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

Nice! Face-smile.svg Thanks Crisco. I'll give it a look in a second. Kind regards, nagualdesign 03:12, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
  • A pleasure, really. Don't get many images like this. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 08:31, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

@Crisco 1492: I've just rewritten the caption completely. Please let me know what you think, and whether I need to trim it down any further. Thanks. nagualdesign 01:29, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

  • I was just gonna ask you the same thing Face-wink.svg. We should keep the image central, though I don't mind having more about Lowell (though we're pushing length limits now) — Crisco 1492 (talk) 01:30, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
While I understand the need to keep the image central, I don't think it's necessary to state the make and model of the telescope or geographic location. That information can be found on the image file page. I thought it more interesting to first state who Percival Lowell was and why he's remembered before segueing into the scene with an interesting factiod. (A rude word on Wikipedia, I know!) This is supposed to be more of an editorial piece than an article fragment, right? nagualdesign 01:42, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
  • More like an article summary than an editorial. Terms such as "unfortunately" are POV and should be avoided. If you want to trim a bit, please do, but I think it is better to describe the image first, before the man. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 01:49, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
Fair enough. Kind regards, nagualdesign 01:53, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
