  1. My waymark was rejected (and I still don't understand the utility of a category with only 10 waymarks since 2006) but I was immediately offered to move it to this category: https://www.Waymarking.com/cat/details.aspx?f=1&guid=ce5ae4fb-1492-48fa-9945-4191792d4731&st=2
  2. The last one (2016) does not seem to be from this brand http://www.Waymarking.com/waymarks/WMRRNK_Shop24_Cortland_NY Idem https://www.Waymarking.com/waymarks/WM5843_Kroger_Right_Now_Columbus_Ohio
  3. The only machines of this brand limit the possibilities enormously! 10 waymarks created since May 21, 2006!
  4. Hello, I happened to find food dispensers. Be careful, not candy dispensers, chocolate bars, small quantities for a small hunger. No, there, you use your credit card to open a compartment that can include several kilos of apples, grapes, goat cheese, etc. Does anyone know a category to rank my waymark? Thank's !
  5. Oui mais les statues qui sont dans la catégories de waymarks Monuments Historiques Français sont donc des édifices ?
  6. Bonjour, Je poste ici en français car la catégorie n'est que française : Monuments Historiques Français Cette catégorie regroupe des waymarks de types églises, maison, châteaux, ... mais la base de données Mérimée compte de très nombreux objets qui sont tout autant classés aux monuments historiques. Je souhaite créer un waymark pour un tableau magnifique du à un artiste de Saint Martin de Brôme, Esprit Michel Gibelin, qui l'a peint entre 1890 et 1897. Ce tableau est classé aux monuments historiques au titre objet : http://www2.culture.gouv.fr/public/mistral/palissy_fr?ACTION=RETROUVER&FIELD_1=INSEE&VALUE_1=04189&NUMBER=13&GRP=0&REQ=((04189) %3aINSEE )&USRNAME=nobody&USRPWD=4%24%34P&SPEC=9&SYN=1&IMLY=&MAX1=1&MAX2=200&MAX3=200&DOM=Tous L'oeuvre en parfait état fait 4 m de long (à vue de nez). Evidemment, j'ai regardé un peu ce qui a été créé dans cette catégorie. Dans les 10 premières pages, visiblement, rien que des monuments (dont des dolmens, des statues qui ne sont pas des bâtiments). Pour avoir eu l'outrecuidance de poser une question sur Facebook (sur un autre sujet), on m'a renvoyé sur le forum plutôt que me répondre dernièrement, aussi je viens poster ici espérant que quelqu'un m'explique pourquoi les objets qui sont classés régulièrement aux monuments historiques semblent exclus des waymarks. Alors : la catégorie exclue les objets classés aux monuments historique ou pas ? Amicalement, YvesProvence
  7. L'agachon de la Soude, à Marseille https://photos.app.goo.gl/QrA6bCZKdfaahMue6 Rather than destroying it, they made a roundabout around An "agachon" (the word is Provençal) is a lookout post for snorkeling with arpon gun for hunting There ... uh ... it's for hunting but, the countryside has disappeared for a long time and all around, it's houses, buildings
  8. France has very, very many roundabouts. Many are quite simple but some seem to serve as a showcase for a work of art and I seem to justify this group and maybe a category.
  9. Hello everyone, After the rejection of my proposal, it is clear that I want to rework my idea to take into account the constructive remarks of the community. However, I wanted to wait a week before going back on this project to remain relevant, not emotional. I will therefore re-read all the remarks (translate them first!). As a general rule, if the descriptions, restrictions should be rewritten, the main subject should remain the original one and which in France is well known as a "dry stone hut" although for the understanding of all it is necessary to rename In "Dry stone hut built without mortar" (the name is not definitive). This type of constructions (poorly described in my original document) is the subject ... of pages in encyclopedias (Wikipedia FR, Wikipedia DE, Wikipedia ES, Wikipedia GR, ...) various dedicated sites, Slovenia [EN], Casetas, THE GATEWAY TO DRY STONE ARCHITECTURE une fédération de maçons (ici, en Suisse) a completely rebuilt village to explode visitors the methods used by the elders (le village des Bories à Gordes), subsidized restorations by the municipalities ... of a real culture that is not only local, because both the methoques and the destinations of this type of construction are found from Greece to Portugal ... and even in Ireland, as mentioned here . Left alone on this idea which was obviously lacking for me in the Waymarking, so this type of construction is known here, input, revisions of the community will be useful to bring the project to its maturity and make it known, accept of all. see you soon :)
  10. @Bear and Ragged It seems that this type of construction is more dependent than we think but many have been destroyed for the recovery of the stones. In the south of France, this type of construction remained, but due to the particular use made of it (not necessarily to transform a shelter by a dwelling) and the use of small assembled stones. The small stones were removed from the fields to allow better crops and these stones were used for shelters. The different sites that explain the use and the methods of construction seem to indicate that the rural people used what they had to do what they needed without going too far for stones that would probably have been more adapted but It would have been necessary to pay. @Bk-Hunters Hi, It is true that I am a little mistaken in creating this post in this place but it is nevertheless judicious by the interventions that are made there.
  11. Hello Benchmark Blasterz, This category, as I foresee it, is the one commonly known and described very long by wikipedia : https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabane_en_pierre_sèche I therefore only foresee constructions made with the stones found on the spot and without masonry ... except the very localized masonry for the waterproofing of a place intended to store food there. Sod houses : No, it is an interesting but differing construction of the notion known in France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece and Ireland (and no doubt elsewhere) Rock walls : Muret in dry stones, or in Provencal "bancaï", or "restanque" ... These are constructions that can be associated. They do not offer shelters but were built by the same men at the same time to prevent water from gullying the land. At first, I did not think of it but your remark is very interesting. I think to add it to the constructions allowed if the group is validated but only if the wall is long enough (more than 50 m for example) or under construction in "épi de blé" (alternating stones placed horizontally and vertically). If we accept "rock walls" without this restriction, there could be too much. --- Elyob, I totally agree that stone fences without mortar-free stone fences and cairns (and rock piles) should not be included in other categories because they are not shelters.
  12. Hi flipflopnick I note your expression of "built without mortar" (very explicit) to replace the one (commonly used) of "Hut in dry stones". The translation of the expression that I have chosen is widely used in France and has a Wikipedia page very well provided and documented but I understand that its literal translation is not necessarily very understandable. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabane_en_pierre_s%C3%A8che I have just found a definition for this type of construction which I think I will use soon: "A dry stone hut is a type of rural building, built entirely without mortar, with local extraction stones, and used as a shelter Temporary or seasonal to the cultivator of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, his tools, his animals, his harvest, in a plot distant from his permanent dwelling." I will adapt to insist on the absence of mortar. I see that in Ireland too, some are still in a state of affairs since a wikipedia page dedicated to them https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beehive_hut There are over 400 (private) on the southern slope of Mount Eagle (516 m) on the Dingle Peninsula, on Church Island, off Beginish Island and Reask. But the most famous are those located on the summit of Skellig Michael Island, in the Skellig Islands archipelago, which have been classified as World Heritage Sites by Unesco since 1996. Regards

  14. Hello, I am sorry if my English is bad but I use google translation I recently proposed the creation of a category "Hut in dry stones" to regroup constructions that are found from Spain to Greece, but especially in France where, depending on the region it is given various Names: bories, boris, bôrie, bory, bar ® aque, cabote, cadole, capitelle, caselle, cabana, cabanya, .... In France, there is a global name that includes all these types of construction, the translation of which would be "Hut in dry stones". Depending on the region, the intended use and the materials found, these constructions have very different shapes and sizes but all are part of the local heritage. I suggest you follow some links to see some of them. borie Capitelle cabotte cadole caselle (little used) cabana ... You will have noticed, in view of the results found on google image that these constructions are not constructions locals but but well repended at least in France. The number of photos known by google seems to indicate the frequency even if few are still in good condition. These places could be used as shelters, temporary shelters in case of inclement weather, shelters for tools, to protect an oven, sheepfolds (for the biggest), washing, Some were made with large stones, others with small ones. Some make it to last (and still exist), others, temporary, had to be rebuilt each year. These construcitons are generally in the mountains, far from the roads of other dwellings. During my hikes, I photographed a lot of these constructions and I identified their position and I want to share with the community my experience. I do not doubt that others also have places of this type to share, which is why I wanted to create this category. Of course, I search without finding categories already existing and corresponding to this type of construction Regards, YvesProvence
