"2017 Iran-Iraq Earthquake"

Hi Russ,

please link to the rule that justifies your editing behaviour on the 2017 Iran-Iraq Earthquake page.

Yours sincerely, Pezhman (talk) 17:51, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

Hello Pezhman, I think there is a miscommunication here. I created that wiki-page at the time of the earthquake several years ago. We use that image to showcase the HDM style map, not necessarily the area we were editing. I can try to get a better image up, but have other priorities.
I neither would like to waste your time. But it's my opinion that placeholder maps showing a very different place on earth are misleading and should be removed.
I assume that there is no rule saying "there must be a map, even if it's totally unrelated"?--Pezhman (talk) 18:16, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
My apologies, it has been updated. Please do reach out, there's often an explanation of why, even if it's a bit confusing.
