On the stage, HH the Dalai Lama, HH The Karmapa (wearing red deity hat signifying red secret bodhicitta), thangkas, Kalachakra pavilion, monks, nun, formal robes, Kalachakra for World Peace, Washington D.C., USA.jpg

Thanks for adding the pics into the draft for me, Hafspajen, it's very much appreciated! I've a long way to go on it yet but I've managed to find plenty of refs to use. I'm just hoping that once the weather improves - it's a bit wet and miserable today - I'll then be able to get some pictures of the mausoleum, which is in some woodland a little distance from the main house and up a rather rough muddy track. I think to get Drmies to notice (s)he is sitting in the Cultural depictions of dogs article, you might need to link his/her name in the caption?

  • Well done of you. Those are very good pics. He is a he, most definitely. Well, I try. Hafspajen (talk) 14:01, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
Drat and double drat, I see you noticed the delicate lean on the main house picture? And here I was thinking I could start a new tourist attraction, a bit like the Leaning Tower of Pisa! SagaciousPhil - Chat 16:24, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Sorry Phil. It is leaning... a bit like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, yes. But probably the castle is quite verical. But you said that you will go back, and than you can take maybe a new pic? Or - crop this one? Hafspajen (talk) 16:30, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Well, if my talkpage is like a lump of spaghetti, your talkpage is like... a museum! Cool window, especially.  :-)   Thanks for my pillow-fighters, do you like my caption? I cannot help you restore breakfast, this month anyways. But with any luck, we can bring in some newcomers to balance out the deletionists. About nine inclusionists, for every one deletionist, sounds about right. What are you up to nowadays, besides decorating talkpages with art? 74.192.84.101 (talk) 00:58, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

We'd need to make it more prominent in the article, but what's your opinion of this? Adam Cuerden (talk) 17:02, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Very nice, and a better place is doable. I would cut of just a little - NOT much, just sightly of the foregroung. It would be beneficial for the composition. But I would not touch the reflection in the water and leave quite a bit under the bridge reflection too. Crop off about ... half of the distance between the reflection of the bridge in the water and the edge of the pic as it is now. Hafspajen (talk) 17:08, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
That does cut off the top of the pagoda reflection on the right, though. Is that a problem? Adam Cuerden (talk) 21:50, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
I meant that the pagoda reflection should be the last thing seen in water. Not a problem, but it will make the picture closer to the Golden ratio. Hafspajen (talk) 21:54, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Please reconsider[edit]

Your WP friends are waiting for you.

Hafs, please reconsider, and continue to participate at WP. I've told you before, but I'll tell you again, that your contributions are invaluable and much appreciated by those who can recognize it, ie., your friends, and your presence and delightful comments, images, edits, and assistance are appreciated and enjoyed by many. Don't let one disrespectful editor, and a few clumsy friends, get you down. CorinneSD (talk) 20:26, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

OK, I will think of it. But not now. I don't feel like sharing space and arguing with editors and admins who support an editor who is an indefinitely blocked editors sock, who with a range of various issues, while they start lashing out against me who never did any of these things. It gives me a rather weird feeling.
I don't like people who believe everything they hear either. WPPilot was constantly appealing to extenuating circumstances and was pleading for support and understanding instead of shifting the focus to his own behaviour, and tried to put the responsibility on others instead of learning from his mistakes and he was repeating them, the same ones, again and again. When he was pointed to them he responded with anger, he refused to address the problem and, instead, attacked the messenger - and voilá - some did even believed that too.
And, if anyone any more comes here on this page, telling me that I constantly attacked that user, DON'T COME HERE WITHOUT ANY DIFFS AND EVIDENCE, THANK YOU. And find out first what is the difference between attacks and raising a problem for discussion. I have very little interest in this project any more, it just feels like a rotten place right now. Hafspajen (talk) 05:00, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
Well said, Hpj—this is carefully constructed and elegantly composed.
Keep away until you are feeling that you are deprived by not contributing to this project! Ignore all entreaties to return until that transpires!
Cheers! — Gareth Griffith-Jones The Welsh Buzzard: Cardiff born and bred  — 09:28, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
Also, there were many moments of: "I am sorry, I will not do this again" involved, showing remorse and just starting everything all over again. Many "I am sorry, please forgive me" - and then continuing exactly were it was left off. Nothing ever changed, it was then I started to demand changes instead of "I am sorry" -es. Hafspajen (talk) 16:48, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Considered now[edit]

Thank you Gareth Griffith-Jones, you are a real friend. I was now thinking enough. I think retiring for the right decision.
I was upset enough, for this and that - but the main issue is still there. The fact that I was the one attacked by WPPilot, and there was plenty of incivility from his part, none from my side. Nobody said a word. And, and here comes the poor judgment of some users: if this wasn't enough, he was throwing the blame on me.
For all the things he did, he made me look like I was the one commiting all those things. This is a dangerous and nefarious game, that was played, and I do not wish to be part of this any more. Some people understood this from the begining, but said nothing. Wrong, - as Montanabw once said, there is a time to speak and not to be silent. Some understood later, well, it's better late than never. Some didn't understood, and still don't, too bad. Pity that people believe words instead of facts, but I guess - it's their choice. Hafspajen (talk) 13:16, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
I was travelling and had poor and sporadic internet access when whatever it was happened, so knew nothing about it. What I do know is that WPP is banished, which is vindication for you, and it would be a shame if the project were to lose as knowledgeable contributor as you. Best, Awien (talk) 13:28, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Could you perhaps add that on the commons? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:23, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
