Map of the Battle of Tinian (2)[edit]

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 12 Aug 2012 at 21:38:12 (UTC)

Original – Map of the Battle of Tinian in 1944, part of the Pacific Campaign.
A second nomination for this one; the previous received two supports (plus me) and no opposes (here) - a couple of comments were addressed during that nomination. Doesn't have the "wow factor" of some of my previous maps, but that's because of the limited size and complexity of Tinian itself. Instead, it presents a clear outline of the way that US forces moved down the island, something largely missing from the original US military map which has been augmented with details from other sources. For once the compilation of sources were almost entirely consistent. SVG map with the usual associated benefits.

  • Support If its good enough for Nick to support then its good enough for me to support. TomStar81 (Talk) 08:55, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Question it took me a minute to figure out the feint. Could you make that easier to figure out, somehow? Pine 22:52, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
What was unclear? (I was personally irritated that "Surharon" comes in the same place, but I couldn't think of a way to get round that. Maybe put both horizontal. But I'm not sure what's unclear at the moment - the location? nature of the feint?). Grandiose (me, talk, contribs) 12:04, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
Could you put arrows from the word "Feint" to the places on the beach where the feint occurred? This would make the style similar to what's shown in the upper left corner of the map. Pine 03:38, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
Well, I thought the distinction might be helpful for those to whom the meaning of the word "Feint" is not apparent. I could do dashed lines? Grandiose (me, talk, contribs) 13:15, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
I think that would be worth a try. Pine 06:49, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Support Per Nick also. Spongie555 (talk) 08:33, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Update: I've tweaked the feint as Pine suggested; supporters may wish to check that they still want to support but overall it's a minor change. Grandiose (me, talk, contribs) 13:19, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
