:I would add to that too many image captions which contain a large amount information which should be in the main text, both to comply with [[MOS:CAPTION]] and to fulfil [[WP:ACCESSIBILITY|Wikipedia's accessibility]] obligations and commitment. For an example, see {{diff|India|991335380|991330643|the change I made}}, subsequently {{diff|India|991337996|991337641|reverted}} by the page's owner, {{u|‎Fowler&fowler}} (making, again, the image caption the only specific information about health in the entire article).

::Please do not offer any help. Neither of you know anything about this topic. The page was revised over a couple of months, in preparation for its second TFA on 2 October 2019, with input from dozens of old-India hands, experienced FA-writers, and at least half a dozen administrators, and in plain view of many more watchers. I'm on vacation until mid-February 2021. Bazza has been attempting frivolous nitpicking now and then. That caption, btw, is very relevant; Bazza forgot to read the CDC caption for the photograph. Our caption is a corrected version of the CDC caption. The picture was taken in 2006. The CDC web maestro made the error of assuming that the picture was taken ''after'' India's receipt of the polio-free status. You'll have to do a lot better than make vague insinuations, the both of you. I don't see the first poster offering <s>his</s> her considerable trimming expertise at [[Barack Obama]], [[Hillary Clinton]], [[Mitt Romney]], all much larger, and all ultimately inconsequential in the scale of things contrasted with a civilization such as India whose neolithic age began in 6,500 BCE, Bronze with the [[Indus Valley Civilization]] in 3,300 BCE, Iron Age with the Indo-Aryan migration (see [[Sanskrit]]), the [[Mughal Empire]], the [[Company rule in India]], and the [[British Raj]]. Please don't waste my time. If you are burning with a desire to apply yourself to chopping, trimming, whittling, please bring Barack, Hillary, and Mitt down to 8,000 words and see how far you get on those talk pages. Please also read [[WP:Main article fixation]] a few times. All the best, [[User:Fowler&amp;fowler|<span style="color:#B8860B">Fowler&amp;fowler</span>]][[User talk:Fowler&amp;fowler|<span style="color:#708090">«Talk»</span>]] 16:48, 29 November 2020 (UTC) Corrected [[User:Fowler&amp;fowler|<span style="color:#B8860B">Fowler&amp;fowler</span>]][[User talk:Fowler&amp;fowler|<span style="color:#708090">«Talk»</span>]] 23:07, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
:::This is an inappropriate response. Even if you disagree, focus on content, and at least solve the easy to solve issues. [[User:Femkemilene|Femke Nijsse]] ([[User talk:Femkemilene|talk]]) 17:09, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
::The bigger problem with images of the grave sandwiching, especially in the history section. To me, those pretty old maps don't convey enough information to justify including all of them. They do not lend themselves to Wikipedia, where more stylised maps do manage to convey information when printed small.

:::Didn't realize it was you as the names were different. You could have simply said you are female. It is important to acknowledge that in an enterprise that is pretty much all male. Please see my many posts at [[WT:FAC]] about gender and diversity. Anyway, the problem with the maps is that no one makes maps like those any more, showing both the physical aspects, mountains and rivers, and the old kingdoms. We could ask the resident genius {{ping|Avantiputra7}} to have a go at those maps, but generally in my experience when you get WP editors to do the same the POV warriors challenge them. You will eventually disappear and the rest of us will be left to battle them. See the [[Kashmir]]-related pages in which, by a long-fought consensus, it is the CIA map with physical aspects that is agreed to by the South Asia editors instead of a fairly similar map drawn by a graphics editor.
