Replaceable fair use File:Alejandro Sabella during WC 2014.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Alejandro Sabella during WC 2014.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Peripitus (Talk) 10:45, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

SA parliament diagrams[edit]

I appreciate your efforts, but they just look horrible. So large. Can't it be compressed to double the width and half the height? Also, the crossbench for the upper house was incorrect, i'm not sure why there was 3 grey. Timeshift (talk) 03:27, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

There's one Xenophon Team and one independent, not two independents. Could you try doing the lower house with three rather than four per vertical row? And is there a way to shrink the size of the individual seat/boxes? It's just so so large and unsightly. Timeshift (talk) 03:30, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Yeah I'll try three rows. Do you know how to compress things? DestinationAlan (talk) 03:36, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Go to three rows, re-add (just to the lower house article for now) and i'll try some tinkering. Timeshift (talk) 03:37, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Hey I appreciate your feedback though! It's my first time. Here let me upload it to the Lower House page. DestinationAlan (talk) 03:40, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I just happened to look at your contribution listing and I did notice you're new to this stuff. It's always good to see new, co-operative, productive, consensus-based editors in Australian politics! Bravo! Timeshift (talk) 03:42, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Alright I uploaded it, made the width slightly longer. DestinationAlan (talk) 03:50, 23 December 2014 (UTC)


Still doesn't look good sorry. Can you try two rows please? Timeshift (talk) 04:08, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

I was thinking that, similar to the structure of the Australian Senate. I'll make the individual seats smaller too. 04:10, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Excellent. Can you remove the empty space to the right, and above and below though? With the upper, how about just a single row considering it's just 7 and 8? Timeshift (talk) 04:19, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Good idea! I just managed to make the diagram nearly in-line with the House of Representatives one Federally. Tell me what you think now? DestinationAlan (talk) 04:22, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

PERFECT! :D Timeshift (talk) 04:24, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Well that took me awhile! Again I appreciate you guiding my way through this! Though I have a few questions. For example, I need to edit the WA and NSW ones. Do I stay 3 or 4 rows with them as they have more seats? Also, do you have a forecast on the Davenport by-election? 04:28, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your co-operation! NSW looks fine, WA looks a bit weird to me, could do with the same tinkering. As for Davenport, i'm not sure. It's unique. There's a definite demographic change going on in Davenport, it's not the safe seat (or the same boundaries) as it used to be. When you look at the pendulum, it is definitely the odd one out. Labor actually won the Belair booth at the last election by two votes! It completely changes yet again in a by-election, as like in Fisher, as all the resources are given and concentrated to the one seat, which wouldn't be done at a normal election. Considering the big swing in Fisher, it's not going to be an easy victory in Davenport, but if forced to a prediction, i'd say the Liberals will win it by within a few percent on 2PP. But I wouldn't be all that surprised if Labor or an independent managed to sneak over the line. The Liberals, state and federal, are toxic at the moment. Timeshift (talk) 04:33, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Demographic changes are something that my electorate is experiencing too. I live in Victoria and we recently went through an election. My electorate is called "Footscray" and it's generally being a Labor stronghold. But this election, even though Labor retained it, we saw a slight jump in percentage towards the Liberal votes. Talk about Gentrification.

Also, it's happening to another electorate federally. "Melbourne Ports". DestinationAlan (talk) 04:38, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Is it possible to make the boxes the same size at Parliament of Western Australia? Timeshift (talk) 05:34, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

I tried to by putting them both at 250px apiece but it just doesn't work. DestinationAlan (talk) 05:35, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
