Picture of - now - concathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul[edit]

Why is there no picture of church of St. Peter and St. Paul? This is an instantly recognizable symbol of Osijek and should be on this page! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.198.165.4 (talkcontribs) 18:27, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

I agree. I have a few photos of it but they're not very good because the church is so tall that it's difficult to get it all into the photo. I've looked on Commons and I can't find any there either. Cordless Larry 12:34, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

The bridge of youth - picture needed[edit]

Please somebody put a picture of the bridge of youth. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.198.165.4 (talkcontribs) 18:29, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

External links[edit]

This was added on my talk page, just wanted to post here for others to review. // Laughing Man 00:01, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Coat of arms[edit]

Who deleted the Osijek coat of arms? Stop sabotaging the page you vandal! // —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.240.30.198 (talkcontribs) 05:57, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

This was removed from my user page as well, with the reason given as "Image has invalid licence". However, there is art on Zeljko Heimer's website that he has given permission to wikipedia for use. (See the discussion here.) I will upload an image from that site for use on wikipedia. Alcarillo 19:55, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
Done. I also uploaded the Osijek Flag. Alcarillo 20:12, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Suleiman I wooden bridge[edit]

Well, I guess my english is not so spectacular, but I've red that this bridge of Suleiman was one of the wonders of the world... But this list was suppossed to be done by Herodotus of Halicarnassus. At least not in this one. It should be more accurate or be deleted this part of the sentence. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Transducción (talkcontribs) 17:40, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Could somebody please find out and tell us what happened to the wooden bridge? By whom destroyed and when? Thanks. Fatidiot1234 (talk) 01:30, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Osijek Coat of Arms.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Osijek Coat of Arms.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Etymology of the city name[edit]

Quote: The name was given to the city due to its position on elevated ground which prevented the city being flooded by the local swamp waters. Its name Osijek comes from the Croatian word "oseka" which means "ebb tide".

The whole chapter, not only first paragraph, is discussing etymology, but without any reference! Mak13 (talk) 20:19, 17 January 2010 (UTC) Mak13 (talkcontribs) 20:16, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

File:Flag of Osijek.svg Nominated for speedy Deletion[edit]

Image-x-generic.svg

An image used in this article, File:Flag of Osijek.svg, has been nominated for speedy deletion for the following reason: Wikipedia files with no non-free use rationale as of 18 November 2011

What should I do?

Don't panic; you should have time to contest the deletion (although please review deletion guidelines before doing so). The best way to contest this form of deletion is by posting on the image talk page.

  • If the image is non-free then you may need to provide a fair use rationale
  • If the image isn't freely licensed and there is no fair use rationale, then it cannot be uploaded or used.
  • If the image has already been deleted you may want to try Deletion Review

Copacabana Open/Built[edit]

I travelled to Osijek in August 1978 and the Copacabana swimming complex was in use. I'm not sure where the information came from that Copacabana opened in 1980. A search of the net about when Copacabana opened quotes the Wikipedia page. Someone should have the correct date. Maybe a plaque at the Copacabana. Kombidreamer (talk) 06:38, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
