Category Proposal: Dovecotes


Recommended Posts

I thought this was a great category writeup, especially the helpful photos with green checkmarks or red X's to show what's intended for inclusion in the category. That visual indicator is especially useful to cut across language barriers.

 

I voted yes for this category. If approved, it might even motivate me to submit my first waymark in many years. Since 1987, I've been driving past a dovecote on a large estate as part of my daily commute, and I had no idea what it was until this thread was started.

Following the legitimate remark by lumbricus regarding copyrights, here is the photo montage that will be used in the description to present the different types of dovecotes all over the World. All photos:

- are either free of rights (Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons) or

- were bought on commercial sites (Fotolia, Stocklib) and

- are credited.

And here are credited photos that will be used in the description to show what is eligible or not:

Oops! I forgot those two!

Thank you veritas vita for permission. ;)

The icon is not in our control. HQ have an in house artist who will create one soon after category passes.

 

Now open and accepting pigeonniers!!

 

And -- we need a specific category icon, not just the generic one we have now. Calling pixel artists!! I do not have this talent :(

I think that used to be true - but for the last year or more, forum members have created the newest icons and redesigned older ones, which have been submitted to GS :)
