Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 2014 NRL Auckland Nines, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Corey Parker and Paul Carter (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.

A question. Is a temporary street circuit that does not exist 50 weeks of the really a landmark? If it doesn't exist the land is not marked anywhere. --Falcadore (talk) 15:56, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Some help[edit]

Hi! As you are Australian, I would ask if you know any site from Australia or Oceania that has a complete listing of the results of the 1999 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships held in Sydney. The best I found so far was this, that is all messy, and don't have lanes and heats: https://archive.org/stream/swimnewsn252/swimnewsn252_djvu.txt . If not, I'll try to use this in the future, to make the pages of each competition. Thanks. Janperson (talk) 00:57, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Janperson, the results of the 1999 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships can be found at the World Swimming Magazine website. The links for each day's results are: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7 and Day 8. Commentary on each day's results can also be found at the WSM site: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7 and Day 8. Also previews of the men's and women's events as well as note about the introduction of semifinals. Happy editing! -- Ianblair23 (talk) 01:26, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Ian. Regarding this edit – for simplicity you can use the {{AthleticsLink}} template. Just stick in the event name and the sex (men/women). Cheers. SFB 14:05, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Requesting advice/help[edit]

Hello, I'm sorry to be contacting you randomly like this, but I'm fairly new here and saw that you're an administrator that has a fair amount of experience and was just hoping that you might be able to help (or at least give some advice). I initially significantly helped with creating a page TapWalk. I followed the proper procedure and the page was approved by an editor. However, it was then nominated for deletion by someone else. I believe that I followed protocol and clearly explained why I disagreed with the nomination. Two people posted very brief and very generic comments about why they thought the page should be deleted (points that I directly disagreed with in my comment). At the same time I also worked to improve the page. However, the page was then suddenly deleted. I believe this violates Wikipedia policies because there was never a proper discussion and certainly no consensus was ever reached. sergeymann (talk) 04:05, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Political parties template[edit]

Thank you for actually adding this to things! I've been meaning to create one for a while and had no idea it existed.

What would you feel about changing it so it doesn't just list parties and numbers in the house and the senate, but other parties as well? There are some parties (like the CDP and Shooters and Fishers) that have a good bit of influence in some states but aren't here because they don't have federal seats. The Drover's Wife (talk) 00:09, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Drover, apologies for not replying earlier. I have just added other registered parties as you suggested and I have also added major defunct parties and rolled out this across the articles as well. Please review and add or remove any party you think should or should not be included. Cheers -- Ianblair23 (talk) 14:38, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Hey, I saw this too and wanted to say nice job. I wonder about adding an additional category for parties with state representation (i.e. CDP, Shooters, DFD) to separate them out from the micro-parties? Or would that make the table too bloated? Frickeg (talk) 00:03, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
I'd take Frickeg's suggestion and remove the duplication of separate Senate/HoR rows so it doesn't actually bloat the table by adding the extra parties. Thanks for doing this, Ian - my original post was more of a "would you object if I did this?" rather than a "can you do this?" so thanks for going through and doing it!

Swimming at the 2014 Commonwealth Games – Men's 400 metre freestyle[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Swimming at the 2014 Commonwealth Games – Men's 400 metre freestyle, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Swimming at the 2014 Commonwealth Games – Men's 200 metre freestyle. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

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. CorenSearchBot (talk) 09:55, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
