Which category for this?

Recommended Posts

Of course it fits in Civil rights, when you fight against a dictature, it's often to have more rights, you could at least try....

 

 

From the category's rules:

 

  1. The post must relate to one of the following Civil Rights:
    • Age
    • Class equality
    • Disability
    • Gender equality (women's suffrage)
    • National Origin
    • Race (the U.S. Civil Rights movement fits here)
    • Religion
    • Sexual Orientation

 

So, it doesn't fit, right?

You think, you have to fight against a dictature to become a victim?

I'm not sure in which category I should put this in.

There is a Jewish cemetery in my neighbourhood. It was used from 1904 to 1941. There are no funerals here since ca. 1945.

It is not abandoned, because there is a person taking care of the whole old complex. So it's not fitting in "abandoned cemeteries"

You can see some part of the cemetery, because of the low situated wall. But it's also not open to public. You can't enter there just like that, you would have to talk to the keeper. So i don't really think it fits into "cemeteries worldwide".

There are some graves with no names, but many of them are visible, so it's not exactly "graves of the unknown".

 

I can't fit it in any category so it would meet the standards of it, but this is an important place on the map of my small city. What do you think?

I don't see anything that excludes it from "Worldwide Cemeteries". See for example the also closed cemetery: https://www.Waymarking.com/waymarks/wmHKW1

 

Okay, I see that there is an option to set that the Cemetery is "inactive maintained". Thanks

Fighting for a Civil Right is an activity, that may be honored with a memorial.

 

Of course, those activists will be fought and suppressed in a dictatorship. But also their friends and families and countless other people that just happen to be in at the wrong place at the wrong time. Or for owning that plot on the lake, that the nephew of the general would like to have e.g. Or belonging to the wrong minority (even without fighting for a change).

 

A memorial for victims of a dictatorship has absolutely no connection to any civil rights movement, unless the memorial explitly states that they are victims because of one of the reasons that category is dedicated to.

Not 100% sure where to put a normal alpine hut. Thanks for your help.

Thanks Bear and Ragged but I try to waymark things in their best fitting categories and I avoid cross postings at the moment (too little time). That's why I asked, I found huts in all of the three mentioned categories above.

Remote Backcountry Shelters is the best fit. It already has some entries of this type, although the majority is totally different. It has a large bandwith.

 

I am not an officer in any of those categories, but if I was, I would deny a submission in the Chalet... category and unhappily but still accept in the Lodge-Style category.

 

Hostels would also kinda fit.

I recently run into this kind of memorial:

obraz.thumb.png.6334d7c6ff1088449501c995e2b3c596.png

 

which was placed on the 100th anniversary of regaining independence by Poland.

Is there currently any category where this would fit? I'm surprised that there is a category like "spirit of '76" dedicated only for the USA (specific and not global), but there is nothing about independence overall.

The text on this commemorative plaque (attached to a street lantern) in Ohrid, North Macedonia is:


On this spot the Austrian Army erected the first electric street lantern in 1916.

'100 years electric light in Ohrid!'

Sponsored by: EVN Macedonia / The City of Ohrid / Austrian Embassy / Lions Club Lychnidos

 

Now I wonder what the best categories are for this plaque. Several come to mind: 'Lions Clubs International Markers', 'First of its Kind', 'Signs of History' (probably not), 'Commercial Commemorations' or is there one that I missed, but fits much better?

The only ones that I can remember are the ones that you mentioned :unsure:

I've recently run into an art installation of a train:

obraz.thumb.png.c80145b04834b4ef0add1dd1abb450c5.png

 

I'm not sure it is abstract enough to fit into the Abstract Public Sculptures category and I don't know where to finally fit it. Could anyone give me a hand?

I guess that there is no good category for this one, but I wanted to share: If you go to the headline "Architecture and gardening" on the page https://aplacetoenjoy.com/our-adventures/ohrid-north-macedonia/ you will find the house of Krapche. This house was the model for the street lamps in the old part of Ohrid (North Macedonia) and I find that amazing. Our guide told us that, at the time the house was built, houseowners had to pay taxes according to the size of their house. So, they made a small basement to avoid taxes and made bigger floors above it to have more space within the house. Interesting, no?
