Beijing map[edit]

Hi. I was just creating a heading for the venues to be at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, using the 2006 page as a guideline, when I saw the map you created for the Turin venues. I've noticed that you are great at mapmaking, and I'd like to know if you'd be interested in creating a map for these games too. A nice map showing the locations of all the venues (just mouse over the yellow dots) is located here. If you could, put the name of the venue, possible a sports symbol, whatever. It'd be your map, and you don't have to do it if you don't care to. Thanks for at least reading this, though. Please send me a message when you can. Regards, J@red  23:43, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Hi JP, thanks about the maps, Ill look into the Beijing olympic map when I get a chance. Regards, --Astrokey44 13:20, 16 May 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the response to my request. Again, do it at your own pace, if at all. Cheers. J@red  19:33, 16 May 2006 (UTC)
I got around to making Image:Beijing 2008 olympic venues.png It shows most of the info (didnt list sports for main venues as they would be too many) --Astrokey44 03:09, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
The map looks great! I appreciate your effort! JARED(t)  13:22, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

I have only the vaguest idea what Commons is and no idea how it works. Adam 10:41, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

I clicked that link and was told that I had to be logged in to use it, so I logged in and it didn't recognise me. Adam 11:07, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

Um, it all looks much too complicated for me. I have never been able to understand all this licensing stuff. All my photos are here, if you or others want to transfer them to Commons you are welcome to do so. Adam 11:53, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

I have a lot of photos from my recent stay in Berlin and Vienna yet to go through, so more will be added to that page soon. Adam 22:55, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

Map software?[edit]

Hey Astrokey, I've noticed you seem to be quite proficient at the whole map business now. :) Can I ask, what software do you use? I want to get into making some maps, since they can be so useful at conveying certain information. But I don't know where to start. Is it hard to learn? pfctdayelise (translate?) 11:43, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

You can't take a picture of a picture and licence it as GFDL.--Peta 05:58, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

  • It's really dodgy - at best you could try and make an argument for fair use, but you'd need to know who owned the copyright to begin with. I'd suggest you tag them for speedy deletion.--Peta 06:02, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
    • It's still fair use, the design will be covered by crown copyright or owed by the artist. You're better off uploadding a press kit photo that at least has decent resolution and the copyright status is clear, and providing the necessary details for fair use.--Peta 06:11, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

Rome empire GIF anim[edit]

Roman Republic Empire map.gif

That's an awesome GIF you've made there. Truly nice work!! — Donama 12:30, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Astrokey, recently the Ancient Rome article was cleaned up from month-old vandalism to re-instate the whole History section. Given this change, you might want to reposition the animated GIF you made for the page, although I think it would still look okay just where it is. Cheers — Donama 01:24, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

Big Brother[edit]

This may seem like an odd question, but on Big Brother Australia series 3, where did you get the information about Belinda's baby?

World SVG map[edit]

Thanks for this, and for alerting me to it! It should make map modification—both here and in general—so easy! --Fastfission 22:30, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

Also -- if you want a suggestion for a new animated map to create, I can recommend one: howabout an animated map of Communist states, 1917 to the present? I've seen versions of this done before (it very dramatically displays the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe and the relative isolation of the post-Soviet states after 1992) but it would be great to have a nice, slick one for the Wiki. (Basically, an animated version of this image, which shows emergence but not collapse) Just a thought! --Fastfission 22:39, 30 June 2006 (UTC)
I don't think the one I originally had differentiated between different types of Communist states. I might have a copy of it somewhere on another computer of mine, let me search around for it... --Fastfission 15:20, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
I think the one in the forum was the one I had originally seen — yours is much better, though, much more detailed, esp. in China and WWII! Very good! My only suggestion would be to increase the length of time that the last frame runs, just so one can, say, "contemplate" it before it starts all over again. In any case, if you don't mind, could I nominate it for a featured picture once I find a good article to put it in? --Fastfission 03:01, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

I don't know where the info is--Greasysteve13 09:27, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

world map states[edit]

I've never worked with those maps so I don't know what I could do; maybe you could adjust the lines a little bit, but at such an extreme angle, and at such a small size, there's bound to be some distortion there. But yeah, Minnesota and Missouri are pretty distorted. --Golbez 17:03, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Not off the top of my head, sorry. --Golbez 15:08, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

pageants map[edit]

For me, it's all right that the maps be placed in each of the pageant articles. Actually, I was contemplating to put them before, but since the official websites and pageant-related websites don't put that much emphasis on the countries--but more on the winners list--I didn't. In any case, I'm inviting you to join the Wikipedia:WikiProject Beauty Pageants, not only because we can discuss this more thoroughly, but I also noticed that you have been quite busy with graphics related to maps. Maybe you can help out in some of the pageant maps, especially in the Miss International map. This is because of the inconsistency of the representations of such countries as UK and USA. Although such is no problem when the winner doesn't come from them (e.g. in Miss World, England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales have their own delegates, but previous British winners represented "UK"), this is markedly different when a winner comes from England for example--as in the Miss International. Hence, if you'll examine the map, the UK is highlighted, instead of just England--in order to better combine the results to the Big Four pageants map. And also, despite having a delegate in the said pageant from "USA", "Hawaii" and even "American Indian" is represented. Not to be negative, but I'm actually relieved that such sub-political and ethnic representations don't end up winning the pageant. In any case, I fully support any delineation that needs to be done for the Miss International map. Also, I noticed that in the map you helped create Image:World population.PNG, there is a legend/scale to the right of the graphic. Can such a legend/scale be also included in the pageant maps, to avoid long captions? And by the way, maybe the host cities of these pageants can also be highlighted in the map by point/diamond graphics... It seems that I'm asking too much, but I'm not really familiar with such graphic features... Thanks! --Joey80 08:36, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

And aside from pageant maps, I also created maps of similar nature (i.e. showing the numbers gained by a country) for UNESCO-related projects such as World Heritage Sites, World Network of Biosphere Reserves, Memory of the World Programme, Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity and International Network of Geoparks. Note that in these cases, the highlighting of countries is more complicated since it emphasizes the political affiliation (i.e. highlighting UK means not just highlighting the British Isles, but also its territories overseas). With the exception of that of the World Heritage Sites', the maps are not that detailed. In any case, I am planning to update these within the month, since UNESCO will be naming new World Heritage Sites and Biosphere Reserves in the upcoming weeks.--Joey80 08:36, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
No problem! I used the ROYGBIV color coding for all--red being the most, and violet being the list (in so far as all the colors apply). Any color modification to make the maps look better and reader-friendly is fully welcomed. By the way, if such tasks would be daunting, you might defer the processing of the Miss Universe map since this year's edition will take place two weeks from now... hence, you can do it in just one ago once the finals concluded.--Joey80 06:32, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
Oh, for the Miss World, you might get confused with some venues since some years (like 1995) have multiple venues. The primary venue there (i.e. the host of the finals) is the first city/location entered. For example, in 1991, the venues as "Atlanta Superdome, Atlanta, U.S.A. and South Africa". We can place Atlanta on the map for being the venue of the crowning, the places cited thereafter usually serves as supporting venues for some pageant segments (e.g. tour, host of some photo shoots, preliminaries, etc.). Then, it can just be mentioned that the map only highlights the host city for the finals. --Joey80 06:42, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
Yes, thanks for the help! I raised the question of including Russia in the map (and also in the tables of statistics) in the Miss Universe talk page already, since officially, that win is not recognized by the Miss Universe Organization (hence, I recommend that it be included in the footnote, not in the actual statistics). Let's just wait and see on the replies of the editors. By the way, thanks again for changing the file format of that map, at least if there's a consensus made on "removing" that win by Russia, it will be easier. --Joey80 01:54, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Banksia brownii[edit]

Hi Astrokey,
Would you be interested in making us a distribution map for Banksia brownii? WikiProject Banksia is about to push the article to GA, and may look to take it all the way to FA. If you're willing, I can email you a scan of the species map in The Banksia Atlas. The distribution is very small, so I imagine the job would be quick and easy.

Edits by --Michael C. Price on Afshar experiment page[edit]

  • Dear Astrokey44, --Michael C. Price insists on using unsubstantiated claims without proper references on the article page. Regardless of the nature of his claims, I have requested that he does so, but instead he has produced at best irrelevant quotes from non-peer-reviewed sources. His edit follows:

Though Afshar's work is still the subject of ongoing interpretation and discussion, a significant portion of the scientific community is of the opinion that Afshar's experiment does not refute complementarity.

Some general criticisms are:

Bohr's philosophical views on the Complementarity Principle are generally seen in accordance with the Schrodinger wave equation. Since the latter is obeyed in Afshar's experiment it is not obvious how complementarity can be violated.[1][2]
The modern understanding of quantum decoherence and its destruction of quantum interference provides a mechanism for understanding the appearance of wavefunction collapse and the transition from quantum to classical. As such there is no need, in the decoherence view, for an a priori introduction of a classical-quantum divide as enshrined by complementarity. Any experiment that claims to violate complementarity needs to address this issue.

As Michael claims, those statments are supposedly "popular views" that preexisted my experiment, and as such must be present in peer-reviewed publication predating my work. All I have asked him to do is to provide such valid ref.s but he has persistently avoided doing so and instead engaged in personal attacks. He seems to have a lot of time on his hands to be on Wikipeida constatntly, but I don't. This is turning to oneupmanship, and I don't have time for such antcis. Maybe he would heed your request. Thanks!-- Prof. Afshar 13:51, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

P.S. I will be discussing this issue with Michael Price on the article talk page, and would highly appreciate if you could monitor our discussion and interject when you deem fit. I'm afraid it might get a little testy, as Michael has been persistent on personal attacks. Thanks very much for your help. Best regards.-- Prof. Afshar 17:02, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Olympic maps[edit]

Copied from User talk:Bastin8

I had joined britain and ireland for 1896 and 1900, because the games museum lists it as "Great Britain & Ireland" [1], but after that it lists it only as "Great Britain" [2]. I thought the maps should only show the country which was named? --Astrokey44 00:11, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

That page is wrong. The United Kingdom has always taken part as a single country, and only ever used a variation on the country's official name; hence, until 1924 (inclusive), the UK took part under the name 'Great Britain and Ireland', changing only after the Royal and Parliamentary Titles Act 1927. See Great Britain and Northern Ireland at the Summer Olympics and Ireland at the Summer Olympics. Bastin 15:09, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
ok I have fixed them. so this means that Ireland (republic) had a separate team in 1924 even though the british team was still called 'Great Britain and Ireland' --Astrokey44 16:21, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
Yes. Except that the Irish Free State (i.e. what is now the Republic of Ireland) was not a republic, but a self-governing dominion of the British Empire. King George V remained the Head of State (in the capacity as King of the United Kingdom until 1927, as King of Ireland from 1927 onwards). Bastin 17:40, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

I kill you[edit]

I was wondering why you have listed to delete my article, it uses references from the books i have been recently reading. I work at Preston University, as head of history, the subject of war phrases has always been close to heart. You can check in the many books i referenced from, the data is all true, it is also the current project of my group, there are many more war phrases used in the battle and many others in fact. I see no real reason why it should be deleted. Epoque 15:08, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Regarding this article, I've added the AfD template which needed to be put on it. I've also just done a quick check on Amazon for "Russia For Dummies" (one of the sources quoted) and I can't even find a reference for it - let alone one published in 1975 as the article claims. None too sure about the idea of a Head of History at a university reading a "For Dummies" book, either... BigHaz 23:41, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Russian Wheel of Fortune[edit]

I'm pretty sure that Pole Chudes is the Russian version of Wheel of Fortune, so I added it to Wheel of Fortune in different countries, and it should probably be added to the map. BirdValiant 19:48, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Uh... I see that you have updated the map after I view the file, but do you see the old version while looking at the picture in the Wheel of Fortune in different countries article? If so... how do you fix that? BirdValiant 03:38, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Miss Universe and Olympics maps[edit]

Hi! I decided to change the color scheme of the Miss Universe map. After the 2006 pageant, you made two shades of orange to distinguish the number of wins by Venezuela and Puerto Rico. Since there are now seven boxes for the legend, I decided to use the ROYGBIV scheme, so I added violet. Hence, Venezuela is colored yellow, and Puerto Rico is colored orange. Also, just would like to point out to you that there are some territories by host countries which are not shaded in the Olympic maps, notably, those by European hosts (e.g. Crete is not shaded for Greece, Sicily and Sardinia for Italy, Corsica for France, Balearic for Spain and Kaliningrad for Russia/USSR). This observation is applicable to both Summer and Winter Games. --Joey80 08:55, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

the miss universe map does look better using the new colour scheme. about the olympic maps, i thought i had gotten those territories and many have a thin line which joins them that indicates it is part of them - is there a specific one you mean? there is a couple showing greece before WWI where I think crete was not technically part of Greece so it wasnt shaded. --Astrokey44 10:39, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
I was referring to Summer Olympic Games and Winter Olympic Games. Since European region hosted most of these editions, the texts indicating the years when these took place blocked the unshaded region in some cases (e.g. "1936" is situated on the Kaliningrad region, and Sicily can only slightly be seen behind "1960"). In any case, these are more obvious in the Winter map, the only unshaded territories that are noticeably visible in the Summer map are Crete, Sicily and Corsica. --Joey80 11:18, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Image:Roman Provincial coin areas..png[edit]

Yes it is fine, I wasnt sure how to do it better, keep up the good work. But you forgot Epirus (region) in greece, which included southern Albania. Enlil Ninlil 06:20, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Yes Lycia, Caria, Lydia and the rest of Turkey would be included in provincial coins, and Armenia as you have left out is not included. Im not sure about north Africa (Numidia, Mauritania, Africa) should be included though. Enlil Ninlil 06:44, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Middle-earth Maps[edit]

You were the one made a bunch of Middle-earth maps, correct? If so, you might want to take a look at a concern involving the one on the Reunited Kingdom. A comment can be found on it's talk page. If it wasn't you that made the map, sorry. Ignore this post. Have a nice wikibreak. --Ted87 00:12, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Byzantine animated map[edit]

Hello Astrokey, thankyou for making the animated map of the Byzantine Empire. I liked it so much that I have to ask, is there any chance you would be able to modify the animation to include a couple of new maps? Specifically, I mean to include these maps:

  • Image:Byzantium5502.PNG
  • Image:ByzantineEmpire867AD3.PNG
  • Image:Byzantium in 1170(3).PNG

Any help with this would be much appreciated. Thanks! :) Bigdaddy1204 21:26, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

  2. ^ "Bohr would have had no problem whatsoever with this experiment within his interpretation. Nor would any other interpretation of quantum mechanics. It is simply another manifestation of the admittedly strange, but utterly comprehensible (it can be calculated with exquisite precision), nature of quantum mechanics." Bill Unruh at [4]
