I can’t help but think that The Iguana is referring to some of my tags from long ago which, yes, ran to a couple of paragraphs. But, hey, it’s my tag and I can write if I want to.

Also can one of you be clear what exactly the tag consists of? Is a close-up of the monument good enough or do people have to schlelp to the vantage point? We wouldn’t want to have another one of those arguments about what counts.

Note:  This is not that hard to find ,guys.

I don’t have the technology to post pics.  (I live at the edge of the 19th century).  But there are two houses in each pic that I can send you the addresses for (and you can check they match on Google Street view)

If you are willing to climb the hill and you have the technology, send me a message and I’ll send the addresses..

@mick, yes the tag is easy to locate.

The issue is what the “tag” actually is: the monument or the view from where the pic was taken from. We need one of @ph or @iggy to tell us. I guess that would be @ph the poster (but I’m not clear on the logistics of how the shoot was worked out). Unless we hear, I’m happy to post Goog Earths of both options.

My interpretation is in the the pickup picture, the bike needs to be in approximately the same location as the bike in the original tag picture. So a pickup picture could be the bike at the obelisk , even as a closeup without the Cathedral in the photo.

Picture showing bike, obelisk, house seen in my first pic, and part of Cathedral of Learning would be good. No need to hike to the other hill and match my telephoto shot.

…not that I agree with @paulheckbert in his tag “requirement”… as I have had a few of my tags defined for me improperly imo..and my protestations of foul ignored… I will consider this as a TAG-O-paulheckbert as I have sggested in the whining thread and follow his  rules…

..oh @ahlir, it’s not all about you, my reference was regarding a typical innaccurate/double-standard/inconsistent whining post more recently..

I don’t think that’s a valid tag pickup, as the bike isn’t close to the location of the bike in the tag drop, and the tag was not in Carrick.

I’m just following @paulheckbert r rules..it has all the itens you suggested…ooops, you are changing them again?… I claimed that about  one of my tags in the past, but everyone ignored my protest… and as it was deemed a clean pickup, so is this valid…

And how do you know how close the bike is…you did some fancy telephotoing that clouded the tag enough…my pic(kup) is appropriate..

I suggest you start you TAG-O-paulheckbert and you can customize and change your rules as you see fit for whatever reasons .We gotta keep this game moving…for the fewthat are playing…and we’ve had such nice weather ..and there’s so mych confusion and delay…I don’t think your obfuscation is appreaciated… I’m sure @ahlir has an opinion…

Mr. Lizard- I feel slighted as virtually everyone else still involved in the game was mentioned in your previous post except Mick and I. And I have an opinion, which is to agree that the bike needs to be near the obelisk.  My feeling is it could even be a closeup identifying the correct obelisk and bike without the distant accoutrements.

Additional clue please? Or elaborate on the ignored opinions part.  Maybe a reference to a closed library?

This could have been a railtrail, but retains its three-dimensional cubist quality… don’t you think? That’s my opinion.
