Which category for this?


Recommended Posts

maybe an idea for a new category -- Recreation - Sports Multifarious.

 

In my area, they have started making Pickleball Courts - which would have the same problem. When I was in school, we had a Flickerball Field - think Basketball-ish goal, played with an American football, absolutely NO CONTACT. Played a lot like Soccer, lots of passing, not much running with the ball.

Try tennis facilities

"I tried to fit this into the Tennis Courts category, cause I thought that's the closest I can get. The waymark got approved and then after few hours declined with the statement that this is not Tennis and the definition of Teqball"

 

I meant Tennis Facilities, maybe I was not precise enough. As said, I tried but nope.

I would love to see such category, as there is clearly a gap. Could even help out.

I'm working in a category that would fit this, it started as a table tennis but at the time the draft it has englobe more types of similar items.

I will create a group to show the category.

 

Sounds great :)

I'm the one who originally accepted it. I did contemplate whether it should be accepted or not, but I ended up approving it for several reasons. One, it is classified as table tennis. Another is that there is no other category that it would sit comfortably in. I believe we should accept them. I have no idea why the other officer declined it, but I would object to their decision.

I haven't seen Pickleball courts, just pickleball being played on tennis courts. It looks like so much fun!! The pickleball store nearby didn't last long-it was turned into a barbershop.

check out Chicken N Pickle or

Thanks for your comment on that. I understand your reasoning and my was the same. No other category, similar, then why not? I can also see the point of the other officer, but this should result in creating a new category like proposed. A mix of various not covered activites or some smaller categories fitting exact sports. I think Waymarking should cover most, when not all, activities, exactly as it is done in other themed categories - there always is a "multifarious", where you can put your place, when all other seems not right. As said I'm happy that some steps were made and I'm ready to help or wait for the result :)

Yeah or Nay for Petrosomatoglyphs?

 

The category mentions "shoemark imprints on concrete" as acceptable, so it should be a Yea...

The imprints were true imprints from the shoes in question. Though they were done in bronze, then set into the concrete, that method is not specifically prohibited.

That's why my answer would also rather be Yes, but on the other hand they were done with a bronze copy of the shoes by somebody else. That's why I would understand, if an officer said Nay. I would just try it and accept, whatever the decision is.

Be that as it may Andreas, she submitted it and I approved it. Couldn't see any reason not to.

Could someone help me out. Where can I fit Tram cars?

 

The closest I can get is "Static Train Cars" or "Permanent Car Displays", but neither of those seems to fit trams exactly. Is this a category gap?

 

Examples:

1) Serves currently as a tourist shop, but it is also a memorial that 100 years ago there were trams in this city (there is a plaque not far away)

2) Permanent display of a small, private collection of tram cars. Really cool by the way.

I found something that I think is quite interesting, but I'm not sure if it will fit into any categories.  It's a cornerstone from an old Episcopal church which no longer exists.  The cornerstone is sitting in a gardern next to another Episcopal church.  I've done some research and found out that the church of the old cornerstone was originally about 10 blocks away from where it currently sits. 

 

I thought about the Dated Buildings and Cornerstones category, but in the description it says, "* Orphan Cornerstones: Sometimes an old cornerstone exists separate from a building, eg if the original building has been demolished. A waymark for such a cornerstone will be accepted if: It's publicly accessible; It's in the location of the original building; You can demonstrate (eg a photo of a plaque or a web link) that the cornerstone is original."  

 

So, the problem with this one is that it is not in the location of the original building.  Therefore, I assume it would be denied.  

 

Does anyone have any other ideas for categories where this might fit?  Thanks in advance!

I'd try Dated Architectural Structures Multifarious

 

 

And unfortunately I'd have to decline it. The cornerstone is simply a cut and dressed stone. In no way could I accept it as a "Structure". Sorry.

Thank you for the feedback on this.  I looked at the Preserved Architectural Remnants and Ruins category, but noticed that it said:  "The Remnant or Ruin should be a preserved part of a man-made structure. It must provide an impression of part of the original building's architecture; a decoration, cornerstone, plaque, or small chunk of concrete is insufficient. If the Remnant does NOT provide some hint of the architecture, the waymark will be declined. If you have a cornerstone remnant, check this category. Your cornerstone might qualify there."  

 

The category they reference is the Dated Buildings and Cornerstones category.   So, despite the examples of cornerstones in this category provided above, it seems that according to the category description a conerstone alone won't work.

Lately I took photos of this plaque:

 

0-600-1.jpg.745de05ed8e195d09fdebbf69f366378.jpg

 

It's attached to a building that was once known as the "Ober-St. Veiter Casino". In 1893 the "Deutschmeistermarsch" of Wilhelm Jurek was publically performed here for the very first time. In 1953 (60 years later) this plaque was made. It's a very nice Relief. So that category would fit. First of its Kind also comes to mind. Any better idea?

The text says: "On March 19, 1893, the Deutschmeister March by Wilhelm Jurek was played for the first time in the Ober-St. Veiter Casino."

 

Community Commemorations is - as far as I know - for anniversaries of cities, counties, etc.

And Commericial Commemorations is - more or less - for everything else. At least it says "this category will accept all anniversary markers and monuments that are not about a country, city, state, or other place.". So, I will try this category. Thanks for the hint.

 

I won't try Reliefs or First of its Kind though.
