Photo replaced[edit]

I replaced my outdated photo of a rain poncho with one that is better quality and more recent. --Allyn 04:58, 1 February 2007 (UTC)


Famous local TV star Gengis Karhn from Great Yarmouth made famous from his one off weather report in which giant sea erchin's from the north attacked the quite Norfolk town. Gengis has been known since his local fame explosion to sport a poncho to top local venues such as the wild duck and peggottys.

Is that vandalism or is it just very badly worded? I can't tell... Can someone shed some light on this? Empty Feeling (talk) 05:15, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

I deleted it, but if anyone feels that I was wrong, please feel free to revert it back. Empty Feeling (talk) 06:38, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
Ah. Whoops. Sorry about that. I thought I deleted it, anyhow... Empty Feeling (talk) 20:24, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

I took it out as Google only finds Wikipedia and its clones for "poncho" AND "Sam Buwert" 07:25, 27 October 2009 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)


"The poncho is essentially a single large sheet of fabric with an opening in the center for the head with a piece of fabric that covers the head."

"issued the Zeltbahn (see Shelter half), a poncho"

These two descriptions (and that in Shelter half contradict eachother. The shelter half (or certainly zeltbahn) does not have an opening in the center. It wraps around the user and the head ends up at the edge of the fabric, not the center.

Either the definition for poncho or both chapters on shelter halves are wrong. Citations are, of course, needed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:53, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
