Twilight photos[edit]

Thank you for removing the 13th photo. To make room for the new arrival, I was looking to remove one of the least popular already there, but don't know how to check for hits separately from those of the whole article. In terms of appropriateness, many of the existing 12 fall short, in my opinion, of illustrating anything special about twilight as such, other than visual appeal. Hertz1888 (talk) 16:57, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Hello Mr. Hertz, nice to hear from you. Well, let me try to address both points you made. The 1st one is simple. You click on the photo, then click on the "description page", which will take you to its commons page. Then you click on history, then page views. First it gives you the hits in commons only. That number is important, because it is the number of times the general public has clicked on the photo in commons to find a twilight photo for their website or whatever. Any photo in commons with over 50 hits a month is pretty high. Then you have the option to pick the language. For us here at Wikipedia.org, of course that would be English, which is at the top of the scroll list....then click "Go". This number reflects directly on the hits from the Wiki page it is viewed on. Since Twilight doesn't get much action, anything above 125 hits is pretty good. Some of those photos however, have upwards of 600 hits per month. I go through every few months, and check the hits, and make exchanges when needed. As far as the visual appeal is concerned, YES I agree. However, since Wiki has the most unbelievable storage of magnificent photos in the world in commons, it's nice to be able to let the Twilight page be enhanced by their beauty. Also, in my opinion, Twilight is the most beautiful time of the day, and deserving of some beauty on the page. Thanks for stopping by...your friend,-Pocketthis (talk) 17:20, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for for explaining the procedure in such detail, and for the friendly welcome. I tried out the procedure and see how it is done, and that is good to know. I will leave the photo reviewing and exchanging process to you, and try to be helpful in other ways if I can, as the need arises. The Twilight article provides a fine opportunity to showcase those beautiful views. Friendly greetings to you. Hertz1888 (talk) 20:41, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
  • It is easy to be friendly and courteous to those whom have shown the same to me. Thanks for your reply, and I am here to help out whenever I can be of assistance. I wish I were a science editor, but my B.A. is in Photography, and Music. I try not to stick my nose in where it doesn't belong. I'm not too bad at grammar, so I have been of some help in articles in that area, as well as always looking for those creepy vandals.....lol-Thanks-Pocketthis (talk) 21:23, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Propane Cost[edit]

Hi Pocketthis, Your EIA source for the average propane price was the right one - I only corrected the date and the price, which is what the EIA released a few days ago as being the average price for October and inserted a non-scientific comparison. Nicolas.dasnois (talk) 19:26, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi Pocketthis, I've sourced the average US price, reinserted the tank comparison and added (and sourced) the East Coast and Midwest average October 2013 prices. Surprisingly, the EIA doesn't include California in its weekly and monthly pricing surveys (unfortunate, given how many people use propane) so I'm happy to reinsert your $3.60/gal reference if you think it would add value.Nicolas.dasnois (talk) 16:02, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

  • OK NIck, nice job. I made your name blue today to give your edits more credibility.-Pocketthis (talk) 16:32, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Here be dragons[edit]

Interesting meteorological phenomenon here on your userpage — I particularly admire the dragons and leaping horses starkly outlined in black at the bottom of the picture. I think I see a dolphin, too. :-) Bishonen | talk 23:07, 23 April 2015 (UTC).

  • Thanks for your kind words over at the "Big Conversation"...:) Nature has a strange way of letting us express our imagination. I find that happens mostly in the cloud shots just as you did. Sometimes the images within the images are stronger than the image itself. Nice of you to come here and comment. Too bad you disagreed with me on what a UFO is, but you sure made up for it with kindness-Thanks-Pocketthis (talk) 23:17, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Commons[edit]

Would you mind if I move File:Paintbrush silhouette.jpg to Commons as English Wiki is not really the place for photos? Pierre cb (talk) 03:13, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

Fan of your bee photography.[edit]

I looked at your photographs, all of them are amazing but some of them are even more. Yes, you guessed it. Those photographs with insect in them are truly beautiful. Thanks for sharing them on Wikipedia and make it a better place with your contributions. People like you, who are willing to do some effort selflessly for wellness of the world are real precious and current extreme necessity . Keep up the good work!! Thanks! P.S. Those photographs of different plants were also equally beautiful.Napsync (talk) 18:42, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
