Russia-United Kingdom relations[edit]

The hardest thing is to start an article. The start version usually serves as a base for the rest of the evolution course of the article. Your start version was exellent, so it was really easy to take it up in the evolution course. P.S. It will look really good if you create a section of articles you started on your user page.

Gunnmap, User:Aaaarg, and Map recommendation[edit]

Hello, since user:Aaaarg seems abscent from Wikipedia, can you introduce a little this interesting application (Gunnmap) :

  1. Where to download ? -> answer/the link http://gunn.co.nz/map/GunnMap.air is empty.
  2. Is it easy to use ? -> answer, need it special skills, software, Linux/Window ?
  3. are the sources free and available ? -> Link: http://gunn.co.nz/map/ AMAZING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just cry one hour when I discovered that I can't save the final product ; Available: I think Arthur was making this also to promote his website and father business. Don't care: I perfectly agree to support the business of people making a such amazing and generous job ! But I note that he will probably not share the code (for a such huge and hight quality work, I honestly can't request him to free his code). So, his current soft displaying to much parametres/possibilities, we (/I? O.o) will have to give him many feedback/request to get the option "Make gradiant map according to Wikipedia standard".

I finnally found myself more information than expected. The most important now seem to know : do you still have an GunnMap.air file ? User:Yug 08:03, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Simply answer here, I will be back soon or late. Yug 08:37, 16 March 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.135.4.212 (talk)


Hi everyone, sorry for my absence.

You can get the offline version from http://gunn.co.nz/map/GunnMap.air.zip The offline version allows you to save the maps in PNG and SVG form. Note that currently the generated SVGs can only be read by a small number of apps. I should be able to fix this in a later version. Last time I checked Wikimedia was able to handle them okay, however I would still recommend PNGs.

The app requires Adobe AIR. There are Mac OS and Windows versions which can be download from http://get.adobe.com/air/ . There is also a Linux alpha available at http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/air/ .

I'm currently planning another version with an improved interface and some new features, so feel free to give me suggestions or requests.

{{DutchplacenamesAus}}[edit]

Hi, if you're going to tag places like Houtman Abrolhos or Pedra Branca, which were named by the Dutch but are nonetheless names of Portuguese origin, would you mind moving that template to a more accurate title? Hesperian 06:24, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Also, The Dutch didn't name Cape Leeuwin; they didn't even find it. A Dutch ship called the Leeuwin met with the south west of Australia, and thereafter that land was named "Leeuwin's Landt" by the Dutch. But it was Matthew Flinders who discovered the Cape itself, and named it Cape Leeuwin. This is only going to work if you figure out a precise definition, give the template a title and heading that conforms to that definition, and then only tag articles that meet your definition. Hesperian 06:34, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
And I'm not at all certain about Dirk Hartog Island either. Hartog himself named it "Eendrachtlandt". I don't know who renamed it in Hartog's honour; it could have been Vlamingh (Dutch), Freycinet (French), Dampier (English) or even King (English). I doubt Nuytsland too. That's at least two, maybe four errors out of six for Western Australia alone. The more I look into this the more it bothers me. Please stop and have a good long think about it. Hesperian 06:43, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
Chiming in, I agree with Hesperian. Your article Australian places with Dutch names‎ is probably a good place to expand on the etymology of these names, but a template without a lead and inclusion criteria has the potential to be misleading. As it reads now, the template is factually wrong as above and may need to be deleted. It could simply be replaced by a ==See also== entry. The article is good and useful by the way and could be expanded. Moondyne 08:21, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
yes I wasn't sure what to do about some of them, there were a few grey areas. There are a few where there is a feature which is named after the old general name for the area used by the Dutch, like Cape Leeuwin/Leeuwin's Landt as you mentioned. What if the template was limited to places named by the Dutch which are still in use, and the Portuguese names were noted? --Roke 09:17, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
Another problem still remaining is some place names have little resemblance to the name given eg. Rottnest Island. Apparently, that is an Anglicisation of "Eyland Rottenest"—the Dutch did not give it the current in-use name. Moondyne 12:25, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

South East Queensland[edit]

G'day, I was wondering if you'd be able to do a blank map of South East Queensland? Similar to SEQ-councils.png. Just so I can use it as a locator on a couple of sport articles such as the Queensland Cup, Greater Brisbane League and Football Brisbane. If you could help, it'd be appreciated. Cheers!

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Roke! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 2 of the articles that you created are tagged as Unreferenced Biographies of Living Persons. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring these articles up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 799 article backlog. Once the articles are adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the list:

  1. Tonia Todman - Find sources: "Tonia Todman" – books · scholar · JSTOR · free images
  2. Steve Osborne - Find sources: "Steve Osborne" – books · scholar · JSTOR · free images

AfD nomination of Mulanggari, Australian Capital Territory[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Mulanggari, Australian Capital Territory. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mulanggari, Australian Capital Territory. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:07, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Melbourne cup Makybe Diva 2005.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Melbourne cup Makybe Diva 2005.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. J Milburn (talk) 18:19, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Yarrowlumla Shire[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Yarrowlumla Shire has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

does not exist and never has; see City of Queanbeyan and www.ga.gov.au

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:Australia grid2.png or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!
