Which category for this?

Recommended Posts

Update: I just submitted the winery for review, so we'll see if I can use previous tastings to rate my top 2 wines - I explained all that in a private note at submission.  

 

I'm still trying to figure out what other category (categories) it would fit into - the tasting room is a converted wine barrel, so appropriate and very unique.  And it's also the oldest winery in Lodi.  Is there a category for the oldest something?  I also have an idea for the largest of something - where do those kind of things go?

Like 99 said, Superlatives. Oldest, largest, etc.  But I can't find anything for the big barrel now tasting room. I don't think it really makes it as a building.

Okay. Superlatives will work for Oldest, and Largest for another idea I have - but I need to get photos of the Largest.

 

The tasting room doesn't fit the description for a "building" category.  It's unique, as far as I can tell.  I love it - and I'll keep looking through categories and hope to find a place it will fit.  What is Uncategorized?  Just a place where you put stuff that doesn't fit anywhere else?

No no no. Uncategorised is where you can put waymarks that you can't figure out what category they fit in. Once you put it in uncategorised,  anyone can claim it put it in a category and then you both get credit. Avoid it at all costs. Unless you have a very specific plan with someone else. 😁

There are circumstances where it's a helpful feature but most of the time I would suggest avoiding it.  Just my opinion.

 

Here's what each one says: 

This waymark is incomplete. You can assist us by helping to categorize it.
Assign Category to this waymark

 

Under Waymarking FAQ: 

What if my waymark doesn't fit in a category?

To submit an uncategorized waymark click the Post a New Waymark link in the upper right of the home page, and simply leave the category dropdown on the waymark edit form blank. Because the waymark has no category it will live in its own queue with all of the other uncategorized waymarks, waiting to be categorized. Uncategorized waymarks serve as the core ingredients for regular waymarks and can be categorized by other waymarkers when a category is found that meets the location's description. A single uncategorized waymark can be made into any number of regular waymarks, provided each one meets the new category's requirements.

How do I categorize an uncategorized waymark?

First, view the uncategorized waymark's details and click the Assign Category to this waymark link at the top of the page. On the edit page choose the appropriate category from the dropdown menu and press the Select Category button. Assigning the category will insert category-specific questions for you to answer at the bottom of the edit page. Once these are filled in you can submit the new waymark and await Group review.

Maybe Ginormous Everyday Objects?  A "regular" wine barrel is about 60 gallons, 3 feet tall.  This one is 50,000 gallons, and half the barrel is about 20-25 ft high but much bigger around.  I think it would qualify.

 

Update: Submitted.  We'll see how it goes.

Anybody more savvy than I am about sculpture?  Freestanding Arches and Citizen Memorials accepted this bronze arch made up of stacked books.  Anywhere else this could go?

They don't want it.  "It's not an object, it's an arch."

Further update: Approved for Winery, Declined for Ginormous Objects, and suggested I try Odd Shaped Buildings.  So I made some adjustments as suggested for Ginormous and re-submitted, and also submitted for Odd-Shaped Buildings.  We'll see....  other ideas?

I don't think I'll make it to 7; I might get 4.  It was approved for Odd-Shaped Buildings, waiting on Ginormous Objects, and I have to do more research for Oldest Winery.  That's only 4.  But the process of learning categories, requirements, multiple write ups for the same place but with a different take, it's been interesting!

Fair enough. But those are categories, not departments, which is what matters for a Lucky 7.

Ahhh, that means there's even less of a chance I'll find 7 different places to waymark it.  Ginormous and Superlatives are both Oddities...

Sorry. But don't forget it doesn't have to be just one thing, like the winery. Any other close waymarks you have could potentially help.

It will require another trip to gather the needed info, if it's even in the realm of possibility.  That particular winery/area is an hour drive, usually on the way to someplace else!  We pass by to pick up wine for wherever we are headed.

It probably won't help you, but I've been able to post billboards like this in news articles and roadside attractions. But I do not know anything about the one in your photo.

Approved in Odd-Shaped buildings, declined a second time for Ginormous with the following comments: So it's published in two categories, and I need more documentation for Superlatives if it actally would work there.  It doesn't seem that it's going to work in Ginormous.

 

[nay] A barrel with a roof is not an object, it's a house.

[nay] Again, it's just not ginormous enough in my opinion.

the category descriptions says it should be measured in stories. I took that as meaning more than 1 story high, to be ginormous. It looks to me to be only about 1 story high. And, it is a big barrel, but it was built as a big barrel. So barrels ARE built that big.

Ever have your nice walk totally deflated?  I'd read about her disappearance and discovery so many years later, but this memorial at the University of Texas really drove it home.  Doesn't look like it's a go for Citizen Memorials or any of the sculpture categories, so if there's interest somewhere, holler.  I won't say "enjoy," but rather, "appreciate."
