  • Crisco, do you know if there's a decent copy of this anywhere? Just if you get a chance to have a look sometime ... SagaciousPhil - Chat 10:35, 14 February 2015 (UTC) The florist hasn't arrived with my valentine flowers and chocolates yet - did you forget to order them? Cry.png
    • Which one? There are several paintings there. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 12:03, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
      • Whoops, I didn't scroll down. Lots to like in there but it was the first one with the nymphs in the lily pond reaching up to the guy in the purple toga. I hope you're suitably impressed with my admirable powers of description! Face-wink.svg SagaciousPhil - Chat 12:11, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
That's nice, Echo and Narcissus. Hafspajen (talk) 11:18, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
        • "John William Waterhouse, Hylas and the Nymphs... Hmm... — Crisco 1492 (talk) 12:36, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
          • At the Manchester Art Gallery. Site's collection search is down, so... — Crisco 1492 (talk) 12:40, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
            • I should have guessed it was a Waterhouse; he did some lovely paintings! SagaciousPhil - Chat 13:44, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
Clearly good, that one. Good choice. Hafspajen (talk) 11:15, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Now, look what that stupid bot did. The point is that I did not copied - actually. It could be a simple coincidence. Can you help check this through? I think they copied our previous version from the Wiki, could that be the problem?

This sentence: Her mother Cassiopeia bragged that she was more beautiful than Hera, Queen of the Gods and wife to Zeus. To punish the Queen for her arrogance, Poseidon, brother to Zeus and God of the Sea, sent a sea monster, Cetus, to ravage the coast of Ethiopia and the kingdom of the vain Queen. it is from the article.

This sentence is from the blog: Queen Cassiopeia boasted that her daughter was more beautiful than the Nereides, the nymph daughters of the sea god Nereus and often seen accompanying Poseidon. To punish the queen for her arrogance, Poseidon sent a sea monster name Cetus to ravage the coast of Ethiopia.

Hafspajen (talk) 07:35, 8 April 2015 (UTC) The part: I now removed the blog from the references - is wrong. I actually never used it as a reference. Here is the version that triggered the bot. - Hafspajen (talk) 08:05, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Okay, I think that's fixed now, Hafs. I'm a little confused though as I think I read somewhere that Cassiope's claim was that Andromeda was more beautiful than the sea nymphs rather than herself? It might be better to double check that? I didn't look at any of your refs. I would also clarify in the text that it was at the wedding ceremony of Andromeda and Perseus where the quarrel took place because it doesn't seem clear at the moment (might just be me that's mis-reading it). SagaciousPhil - Chat 09:03, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
UH? Not according to the British Encyclopedia? [Yep, they say so]. ... Hafspajen (talk) 09:51, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
All say mother bragged. [3], [4], [5] Hafspajen (talk) 09:57, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Theses say mother bragged the daughter was more beautiful. [6].
Blast them all. The only thing is clear - somebody bragged. Hafspajen (talk) 10:00, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Yes, welcome to the world of mythology - everyone tells a different story! Face-wink.svg SagaciousPhil - Chat 10:06, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I am familiar with the problem. Anyway, since the PAINTING 'S reference say mother bragged, I go with that version. Maybe mention other versions ... (?) or not.Hafspajen (talk) 10:07, 8 April 2015 (UTC)


Dryad, check. Added a kind of description, up to you to shake it in shape... Hafspajen (talk) 11:40, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

You can of course remove it or fix it, but I think one can describe things without references. Hafspajen (talk) 12:06, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

A cookie for you![edit]

Cookies are small baked treats that come in a wide array of flavors, shapes, and sizes. Hafspajen (talk) 06:52, 9 April 2015 (UTC)


I am desperate. If I ever should make an article on at least two sentences, I need help. I was reading through hundreds of adds all wanting to sell this painting, but nothing on IT, whatsoever. Hafspajen (talk) 15:32, 9 April 2015 (UTC) User:Hafspajen/ Gabrielle Cot This is my only [normal source], Gabrielle Cot is a redirect. Hafspajen (talk) 15:38, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Here is what I leave to you[edit]


These are articles that are unfinished, drafts. You can finish them for me. You can also nominate them - and if you want I can be co-nom, but only if you want that, no requirements. You can use this signature for them, or I can come back just to sign them, is you wish to co-nom - User:Hafspajen/sandbox for Alb, User:Hafspajen/Saint Francis of Assisi, User:Hafspajen/ William J. McCloskey, User:Hafspajen/Dobson, User:Hafspajen/sadbox II, User:Hafspajen/Winterlandschaft, User:Hafspajen/ Less known works by Claude Monet (not sure this should be the title) ... I will not be here any more to finish them.

  • This was my 51th article, Head of Christ (Correggio), created to be nominated. It is good, maybe you or Crisco 1492 can nominate it - if you are not in the religious stuff. It would be a pty not to nominate it. God bless and take care, and thank you for everything-. Hafspajen (talk) 16:35, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
Not incompetent by choice, so I don't know why you're packing up, Hafs. You understand what I'm saying here? (if you do don't repeat it). That's why I didn't say anything. Xanthomelanoussprog (talk) 17:04, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
Xanty, now it's to late to say anything any more. It's too late. Hafspajen (talk) 17:28, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
