How do I start a second peer review for a proposel?

Recommended Posts

Hello folks

Ok, our first attempt of a proposal was not well. In the review it was rejected. We have revisited it. A new peer review was not started. Here is the category proposal.

And what happens now? We believe that the categorization is in order. We now want to post Waymarks.


Our proposal is in German and English


Wars of Liberation



The sub-section to the Napoleonic War (1793-1815), In Germany itself it became known as the Befreiungskriege (Wars of Liberation), fought primarily in Germany - Between 1810 and 1814/15.

Der Teilabschnitt der Napoleonischen Kriege (1793-1815), in Deutschland selbst bekannt als die Befreiungskriege, Kämpfe vor allem in Deutschland - Zwischen 1810 und 1814.


Expanded Description:

Locate a Wars of Liberation monument or memorial, or historic marker with reference to the Wars of Liberation. In particular monuments are sought with respect to the Battle of Leipzig in 1813. The time period of this War was After the devastating defeat of Napoleon's Grande Armée in Russia in 1812 until the early months of 1814. All markers, world wide are acceptable, but location of sites probably would Europe.

I think you are limiting your category to only Wars of Liberation especially when you express that your real desire is your original category that being the Battle of Leipzig. As you indicated this is mostly in Germany. I would recommend expanding it all the Napoleonic War memorials (excluding the War of 1812, which occurred during this time but was really separate and has its own category) this would make the category more global. This would not overlap much with the La Famille Bonaparte category as that category is not really about war memorials.

First of all, this proposal is much better than the first one. I appreciate the hard work you have done in a very short time.


I think the same as BruceS. You better create a category for Napoleonic Wars, do not limit it to a part of it.


The rest of the category proposal is not bad; I will not go into minor details, nobody's perfect.


But I must confess, I have some doubts if it is a good idea to vote for this category. I've seen the group description and then your first proposal. The second one is not bad but you still highlight your original idea. I cannot help but think you are still only interested in the 50 Apel stones that can be found around Leipzig.


What happens when you have finished that? Will this become a abandoned category? You should invite some additional officers, preferably waymarkers with a certain reputation, maybe from other countries. This would help a lot to get my vote.


(My vote is not that important, I am only one person. You need 66% Yea votes to pass. Find out out what you can do to attract the majority!)

Out of curiosity: Why no vacation photos? Should I just say that I took the photos while on a business trip instead?


I would also recommend that this should be removed .... if I am going to add a waymark to this category it is most likely going to be from a visit while I am on vacation. I don't have any Wars of Liberation memorials between me and my Walmart so most likely I will have to do it when on vacation.

Thank you for all the good advice. We will incorporate these suggestions into our proposal and also expand the goals for our group. To make this more visible, we will change our group name.


Vacation photos in our minds are pictures with relaxed and funny people in beach wear. We think in a subcategory of war is not appropriate. But we can gladly do without this restriction.

I think this is a translation / language thing...we all have our vacation photos...the ones of the kids and the wife that are in waymark photos are usually in a category like "sit by me".


Afterall I have some pretty good photos that I don't need to spoil for Waymarking with my face :ph34r: or is that :cool:
