  • No Barnstars and Wikilove messages please -- a brief 'thanks' is adequate.
  • It's pointless using {{ping}} to get my attention because I'm not here and I won't see it.
  • If you absolutely must immediately contact me to tell me something earth-shatteringly vital, e-mail me from this page.
  • I'll probably be back in April 2015.

Smooth Island[edit]

Hi Baffle_gab1978, thank you very much for offering to help on Smooth Island (Tasmania). I need to reassure you that I am NOT the current island's owner. Whilst it is in my extended family, I have a broad interest in all islands as you will be able to tell from my Contributions. I hope to eventually create solid articles for all the major islands of Australia. Thank you again for your help. Warm regards, Jkokavec (talk) 02:31, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Jkokavec, thanks for clarifying that; I'll strike my comments on the talk page. I did some minor source checking earlier and noted the similarity in your names; I hope I didn't cause you any problems. I'm just cleaning up some of the quoted material, removing blockquotes etc. I'm not doing a full c/e as I've already started on another. Cheers, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 02:38, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
Baffle, it looks like you spent close to 2 hours copy-editing the article - I'm incredibly grateful, thank you. It's people like you who make the Wikipedia project so addictive.
If you can, just as really, really brief dot-points, could please tell me what remaining c/e issues still need to be addressed on this page? Please don't spend much more time on this, you've already been exceptional. Have a very happy new year! Jkokavec (talk) 06:57, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your comments; I've been focussing on converting the references to {{Cite web}} format; that allows short titles to show in the References section rather than long urls. There's still some more that need converting. Also i've tried to consolidate some of the text in the History section; basically trying to merge the very short paragraphs into some more substantial paras. This is just to make a full c/e easier for another editor; I haven't fully checked the article's text or properly copy-edited it. Anyway I'm happy to help; i might do some more tomorrow (Sunday).
