Italics (or something?)[edit]

Hi CamV8. Thanks for the work you're doing editing various pages, suggesting changes etc. Would you mind italicising quotes from the pages though, like this so it is easier to see where your quotes start and stop? I found your comments on the Alan Jones talk page a little hard to work out at first. you can italicise by putting a pair of apostrophes either side of the quote, ''like this''. A dn again, thanks for your constructive suggestions on various pages that i watch (and others). WotherspoonSmith (talk) 13:05, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Brewarrina article[edit]

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, place a new {{help me}} request on this page followed by your questions, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

The Brewarrina article title is Brewarrina, New South Wales. I note that this was changed several years ago just in case there was another Brewarrina. How can I change the title back to Brewarrina as there is only one?— Preceding unsigned comment added by CamV8 (talkcontribs) 02:11, 05 February 2013 (UTC)

If it was normal disambiguation it would be a straightforward switch, but this isn't disambiguation, this is naming conventions. You will notice Nyngan, New South Wales and Byrock, New South Wales are the same, and many more probably are too. If Brewarrina was going to be moved, they would all need to be moved. If you want to start a discussion on this, I suggest doing it at Wikipedia:WikiProject Australia. -- Patchy1 REF THIS BLP 02:25, 5 February 2013 (UTC)
HI CamV8. Patchy1 has a good point. We had similar discussions around the Dubbo article a few years back (because there is an LGA of Dubbo distinct from the city of Dubbo). Brewarrina, New South Wales is a different creature from Brewarrina Shire- the naming convention is consistent with others in Wikipedia. Sometimes the standalone article looks different to how we'd name it if it wasn't part of a bigger encyclopedia, but the current name makes sense when looked at in that context.

Disambiguation link notification for March 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Your submission at Articles for creation[edit]

AFC-Logo Decline.svg
Thank you for your recent submission to Articles for Creation. Your article submission has been reviewed. Unfortunately, it has not been accepted at this time. Please view your submission to see the comments left by the reviewer. You are welcome to edit the submission to address the issues raised, and resubmit once you feel they have been resolved.

Speedy deletion nomination of Two Foot Skiff[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Two Foot Skiff requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Nimuaq (talk) 15:36, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

citation needed usage[edit]

Hi, CamV8. I noticed your edits (1 and 2) to Enclave and exclave that added {{cn}} tags. To add the month and year to the template, use, for example, {{citation needed|date=April 2013}}. Without the "date=" part, the date displays as a tooltip rather than the default tooltip that explains to readers what the tag means. You can also use a "reason=" parameter to add a reason that overrides the default tooltip. Cheers, Jason Quinn (talk) 05:40, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

If your submission is not edited soon, it could be nominated for deletion. If you would like to attempt to save it, you will need to improve it.

You may request Userfication of the content if it meets requirements.

Thank you for your attention. HasteurBot (talk) 02:11, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Invitation[edit]

There is a backstage pass coming up to be followed by an editathon in the State Library of New South Wales on 23 November. This is the first time that an Australian cultural institution has opened its doors to us in this way and will be a special opportunity because the Library is providing: one of its best rooms; its expert curators (along with their expertise and their white gloves); a newly launched website (containing new resources); and of course, items from its collection (including rare and usually unavailable material) which we can look at, learn from, and use, to improve WP articles. For example, on the chosen topic (Australia and WWI), the Library holds many diaries and manuscripts from the period.

As you can see from the Library's project page, they have connected this editathon with their own work. They have already set out a wide range of resources to make things easier for us. Please sign up on the editathon project page if you can participate either online or in person with other Wikipedians. Hope to see you there! Lankiveil (speak to me) 07:14, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

List of PMs... "spell check"[edit]

Spell check doesn't account for not knowing facts. Like that Labour was renamed to Labor in the early 1910s. Timeshift (talk) 23:38, 6 March 2014 (UTC) Thanks for the correction. Timeshift. Probably shouldn't edit after midnight.CamV8 (talk) 01:07, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks CamV8 (talk) 08:13, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

In history, locate the multiple entries. You can click 'edit' at any of them, make any corrections or additions you like, and save the article. It may be desirable, even for vandal edits, to pick up any missing work on the article and do it, of which inform the author on his/her talk page.

(Rollback is meant to make this routine task easier, but standards for using it are — currently — set too low; most often than not, a minute wasted figuring things out will result in both an article improvement, and encourage something positive in the original contributor who made an edit.)

Department of Finance and Services (New South Wales)[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Department of Finance and Services (New South Wales), and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.finance.nsw.gov.au/about-us.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) CorenSearchBot (talk) 02:24, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Specifically the website allows reuse non-commercially (see), but Wikipedia content license is more free than that. —Gryllida (talk) 09:40, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

(Moved) Gday, The new article for Department of Finance and Services (New South Wales) seems to have some potential copyright issues. Could you please point out what content is a problem. Or just delete the problem bits. Thanks CamV8 (talk) 10:10, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

The above messages imply there is a direct quote in the article somewhere. It took me 30 seconds to see that it is «It is responsible for supporting sustainable government finances, ... and metropolitan water policy.». Gryllida (talk) 22:26, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Gillard Government, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Greens, Speaker of the House of Representatives and ALP (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

List of atheists in politics and law[edit]

Regarding your removal of Julia Gillard from the list of atheists in politics and law: Despite looking through the archives of the Gillard talk page, I remain somewhat puzzled. She said herself, clearly and explicitly, that she does not believe in God. That is exactly what being an atheist means. The fact that she is an atheist is beyond dispute. (It is to her credit both that she has said it without feeling intimidated, and that she has not made a big thing of it in relation to her functions as PM, as befits the leader of a secular state.) So I don't see where the controversy is supposed to be… Aridd (talk) 16:34, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
