A new editor on the right path
Hi Danimations, I've been following your career here with interest, and I think that you have been doing a great job of creating new articles very relevant to South Australia. Besides the WikiProject South Australia which you have already joined, there is also a WikiProject Adelaide, and some of us get together occasionally for Meetups - since we haven't had one for a while, I'll be calling for one to be held soon. In the meantime, as I'm sitting on a lot of reference material that may be of interest to you, please feel free to contact me off-line. Cheers, Bahudhara (talk) 00:25, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Neptune Islands and Little Penguins[edit]

Hi Danimations, Thanks for the link for the Neptune Island Lighthouse. BTW, I have started a draft for a separate article about the Neptune Island Lighthouse as I have found a lot of specific material since I started ‘improving’ the Neptune Islands article in mid-2012. Little Penguins - you may find the following book to be of use - http://www.environment.sa.gov.au/files/5a7dbb25-70b9-4ceb-bbfd-a25800961994/offshore-islands-gen.pdf, particularly pages 51-55. As I have noticed that your area of interest overlaps with mine, I will get back to you in the future to see if there are any areas where we can collaborate. Cowdy001 (talk) 02:26, 15 February 2014 (UTC)


hi Danimations - Thanks for the note - i really appreciate it - i hope i'm doing this 'talk' thing the correct way... I'm still trying to track down more state-based info on little penguins - the map i found was as far as i've managed to get - my searches keep getting flooded by tourism links (bah!)

Feedback needed on using special characters[edit]

Hello. Thank you so much for using VisualEditor. Having editors use it is the best way for the Wikimedia Foundation to develop it into the best tool it can be.

While we always welcome general feedback (please report any issues in Bugzilla in the "VisualEditor" product or drop your feedback on the central feedback page on MediaWiki.org), the developers are especially interested right now in feedback on the special character inserter. This new tool is used for inserting special characters (including symbols like , IPA pronunciation symbols, mathematics symbols, and characters with diacritics). It is intended to help people whose computers do not have good character inserters. For example, many Mac users prefer to use the extensive "Special Characters…" tool present at the bottom of the Edit menu in all applications or to learn the keyboard shortcuts for characters like ñ and ü.

The current version of the special characters tool in VisualEditor is very simple and very basic. It will be getting a lot of work in the coming weeks and months. It does not contain very many character sets at this time. (The specific character sets can be customized at each Wikipedia, so that each project could have a local version with the characters it wants.) But the developers want your ideas at this early stage about ways that the overall concept could be improved. I would appreciate your input on this question, so please try out the character inserter and tell me what changes to the design would (or would not!) best work for you.

Screenshot of the Insert menu in VisualEditor
The "insert" pulldown on the task bar of VisualEditor will lead you to the 'Special character' tool.
Screenshot of Special Characters tool
This is the Special character inserter as it appears on many wikis. (Some may have customized it.) Your feedback on this tool is particularly important.

Issues you might consider:

  • Do you normally use a character inserter? Which character sets are useful to you? Should it include all 18 of the character sets provided in the wikitext editor's newer toolbar at the English Wikipedia, the 10 present in the older editor toolbar, or some other combination of character sets?
  • How many special characters would you like to see at one time?
    • Should there be a "priority" or "favorites" section for the 10 or 12 characters that most editors need most often? Is it okay if you need an extra click to go beyond the limited priority set?
    • How should the sections be split up? Should they be nested? Ordered?
    • How should the sections be navigated? Should there be a drop-down? A nested menu?
  • The wikitext editor has never included many symbols and characters, like and . Do you find that you need these missing characters? If the character inserter in VisualEditor includes hundreds or thousands of special characters, will it be overwhelming? How will you find the character you want? What should be done for users without enough space to display more than a few dozen characters?
  • Should the character inserter be statically available until dismissed? Should it hover near the mouse? Should it go away on every selection or 10 seconds after a selection with no subsequent ones?
  • Some people believe that the toolbar already has too many options—how would you simplify it?

The developers are open to any thoughts on how the special character inserter can best be developed, even if this requires significant changes.

Please leave your views on the MediaWiki feedback page (your regular username/password works there), or, if you'd prefer, you can contact me directly on my talk page. It would be really helpful if you can tell me how frequently you need to use special characters in your typical editing and what languages are important to you.

Thank you again for your work with VisualEditor and for any feedback you can provide. I really do appreciate it. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 23:42, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Stirling Linear Park[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 Stirling Linear Park, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Hell In A Bucket (talk) 07:52, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

The extent of Encounter Bay[edit]

Hi Danimations, This is a courtesy message. For some time, I have been looking for information about the maritime boundaries that apply in South Australia, in particular, the sea-ward limits of the two gulfs, Investigator Strait and Backstairs Passage. Earlier this week, I found a proclamation made under the Seas and Submerged Lands Act 1973 in 2006 that describes the extent of the following four bays - Anxious Bay, Encounter Bay, Lacepede Bay and Rivoli Bay - please refer Explanatory Statement Seas and Submerged Lands (Historic Bays) Proclamation 2006. The proclamation itself (please refer Proclamation 2006) contains coordinates for the sea-ward limits for the four above-mentioned bays which I was able to plot onto charts. Of immediate interest, is Encounter Bay whose most westerly point of the sea-ward limit is the south tip of Rosetta Head (aka The Bluff) with the most easterly point being a point on the Younghusband Peninsula. This means that West Island ceased to be in Encounter Bay as of 15 February 2006 according to Australian authorities (including SA). Accordingly, I have just edited both the Encounter Bay and West Island articles to reflect this situation. Trust the above explanation is satisfactory. Regards Cowdy001 (talk) 09:57, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

It certainly is, Cowdy001. Well done with your tenacity and attention to detail. I trust you've made the corresponding edits already. I'll take a look at the info re: the two gulfs. Danimations (talk) 11:41, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
The story with the two gulfs appears to a bit different; I am still working thru this item. These were apparently declared in 1983 as being waters internal to SA along with several other bays under the Seas and Submerged Lands Act 1973. The four historic bays listed above were done separately after 1983 at the express request of the SA government. I will upgrade the articles for the two gulfs when I have found enough reference material which may take some time. Regards Cowdy001 (talk) 07:39, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Protected areas of South Australia[edit]

Hi Danimations, I refer to your recent edit of Protected areas of South Australia. I have the following comments. Firstly, the “American River, Kangaroo Island” - the American River Aquatic Reserve protects the waters of Pelican Lagoon while the Pelican Lagoon Conservation Park protects the islands (presumably above low water) and some adjoining land on the small peninsula to the north of the lagoon. The extent of the aquatic reserve is shown on http://www.pir.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0019/65413/13._AqResWeb.pdf while the extent of the Pelican Lagoon Conservation Park can be viewed on Nature Maps. In effect, the two protected areas complement each other; this is what the Pelican Lagoon Conservation Park article states. Therefore, the entry for ‘American River, Kangaroo Island’ needs to be restored. Secondly, the ‘Great Australian Bight Marine Park, far west coast’ - the link is to the former Commonwealth Government controlled reserve. It needs to be changed to the Great Australian Bight Marine National Park. The Commonwealth Park management plan advises in the Foreword that ‘The State Marine Park, in the State (coastal) waters of the Bight, combines a whale sanctuary established under the Fisheries Act 1982 (SA) and a marine national park established under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972 (SA)’. It would appear that the State Marine Park is the ‘‘Far West Coast Marine Park’ and that the aquatic reserve may be the ‘Great Australian Bight Marine Park Whale Sanctuary’. However, the management plan for the ‘Far West Coast Marine Park’ does have the words ‘Great Australian Bight aquatic reserve’ on a number of the maps at the back of the plan - please refer http://www.environment.sa.gov.au/files/775d4df7-c35a-4e04-a510-a1170099e60c/mp-gen-1farwestcoast-managementplan.pdf. Thirdly, West Island Aquatic Reserve is not in Gulf St Vincent, it is either in the Great Australian Bight (i.e. the international view) or the Southern Ocean (i.e. the Australian Government’s view). I noticed that the Wikipedia aligns with the former position - somewhere within the Wikipedia, I did see a discussion which resolved to go with the international view. If you wish to reply to the above, please place it on this page so that the discussion does not extent to multiple pages. I have added this page to my wishlist in order to see any reply that you may make. I will remove the page from my watchlist after the conclusion of any discussion re the above. Regards Cowdy001 (talk) 06:49, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the detailed response, Cowdy001. Here's my response to your three points (you may have already noted that the section on the page in question has already been revised with your feedback implemented).

1) It appears that PIRSA refers to the aquatic reserve by both 'American river Aquatic Reserve' and 'Pelican Lagoon Aquatic Reserve'. As such I've amended the list to read American River/Pelican Lagoon, Kangaroo Island. Do you know which is the current gazetted title? Apparently it was re-declared in 2007.

2) I've removed the link to the GAB park, as I was and am still unfamiliar with this territory. I simply added a link (which I've since removed) and I admit that link was made in haste.

3) I've revised West Island to acknowledge Southern Ocean as the locale, not Gulf St. Vincent. I have concerns regarding use of either Southern Ocean or Great Australian Bight as locales for this, as there are two West Islands in South Australia, the other being found on the far west coast of Eyre Peninsula.

Thanks for your attention to detail as always. Danimations (talk) 10:40, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

edit war warning[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Bayer shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Per WP:BRD, if you are bold and make a change, and are reverted, the appropriate thing is to open a discussion on Talk. Simply re-reverted is edit warring, and if you continue, you will get blocked. Please open a discussion on Talk. If you don't know how to do that, please ask. You can ask here, I am now watching your Talk page. Jytdog (talk) 17:24, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
