"Bird of Prey"[edit]

A condor is not a bird of prey or predator. Like other vultures, they are scavengers, feeing on carrion. Scott S 13:23, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

They're still considered "Birds of Prey" however. This seems to be based on things like taxonomy and morphology rather than food gathering technique. Liquidvelvet (talk) 19:57, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Translation[edit]

The free translation of "Por la razón o la fuerza" loses the spirit of the phrase, a better translation of "razón" would be "reason", and a much better overall translation would be "By means of reason or force" or "By reason or force". "Might" implies some kind of status over the opponent, while the term "fuerza" must be interpreted as strenght or force of will, instead of a superior power. So, though "By right or might" rhymes and sounds cool, a much better translation is "By reason or force".

I think it's better "By right or might", i mean, if you don't like it, we kick your ass —Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.21.0.51 (talk) 20:34, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Which file should be used on this article[edit]

Echando una mano, will you please stop reverting and replacing File:Coat of arms of Chile.svg with you own creation File:Coat of arms of Chile (c).svg, and first try and gain a consensus to change the image? If you keep doing this, I will be forced to ask for an administrator's intervention. Fry1989 eh? 01:02, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

The file is according the original image of the national coat of arms, as it can be seen in the original decree (decreto 2271 de 1920) and in this colored image (the same) from Military Geographic Institute, and with the coat of arms description, in the article. --Echando una mano (talk) 02:03, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Actual version 
Proposed version 
I am asking you to stop replacing File:Coat of arms of Chile.svg (which is the file that has always been on this article) with your own personal creation until you have gained a consensus for the change. Are you or are you not willing to do that? Fry1989 eh? 02:14, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Both are my personal creations (with the basis of B1mbo's work). I will wait for the consensus, but you and me will be out of the discussion.--Echando una mano (talk) 02:58, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for reverting your change. Fry1989 eh? 03:12, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
