An admin will have to move the above layoutEdit


Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world.

~ Arthur Schopenhauer ~



An admin will have to move the above layout into the project page — it is currently locked to general editing ~ Kalki·· 23:03, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

I have been running around a bit more extensively than usual the last few days, and have a bit more to do today, at a few more places, and might only have a few minutes later to check in here. In the limited time I have right after an earlier edit, I was initially was developing a layout for the pendulum quote, with what imagery I could relatively quickly gather related to it, but somewhat dissatisfied, and with at least a few minutes to spare before I had to be leaving again, I quickly developed much of an alternative, with an equally ranked quote of Schopenhauer, which accords more with what some of the most vocal critics of my general layout work would seem to prefer, and am just now back again to finish it off. In this particular instance, I actually strongly prefer this option, on the limits of vision, but consider some of the more ideological objections being raised by a few to such freedoms of composition as I have long practiced and advocated to be rather detestable, though I will probably temper myself somewhat in gradually indicating some of the reasons why, out of considerations of the fragile and limited sensibilities of my critics. ~ Kalki·· 23:00, 21 February 2014 (UTC) + tweaks

Clearly I don't do this every day, because I moved the whole page. In copy/pasting back the comment here, I hope all is restored. -- Mdd (talk) 00:47, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, Mdd, much appreciated. I've helped out by removing superfluous images, at diff. Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 11:29, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

I object to altering the design and removing relevant pictures without first obtaining consensus. Note that regular editors cannot edit the page back, so this unilateral imposition from on high is particularly inappropriate. ~ DanielTom (talk) 11:40, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
