Please do not change other people's comments in talk pages[edit]

On this edit[1] you made a legitimate comment, but also disrupted the date in another comment in an earlier, unrelated section. It is hard to see how this could be done accidentally, so please avoid doing that in the future. Thank you. SeaphotoTalk 05:39, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Francisco Vittorio Barrios del Esparza[edit]

Hi. Can you please tell me if you have proof of Francisco Vittorio Barrios del Esparza being a hoax? Thanks! --Ecelan (talk) 20:03, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

John beta (talk) 05:53, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

wheatbelt[edit]

If that is the case it would be very useful if you could provide a ref/cite for that - the Wheatbelt (Western Australia) article is very short on refs - and an explanation as to the disparity between the two (the claim for the size vs the admin version) would be a very helpful addition if you had something to hand on that SatuSuro 03:02, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

thank you very much, your reply is very useful - when I created the regions of wa central article - it was exactly what you are telling me that I was hoping to incorporate - that somehow something that has to be explained (it is an unfinished project that article) - the adding the exceptions into that article is important.. I remember a family associated farm closer to mount gibson than wubin is now considered by some to not even be in the wheatbelt anymore, and even 10 years ago the old mullewa rail line area was considered marginal while the midland rail line was almost 'the edge' when it came to rainfall in dry seasons...

Hill River[edit]

Nice work on all the rivers in WA that your are fixing up, The origin of Hill River I had put as Dinner Hill, which is a hill not a town and was the closest feature to the origin I could find on Bonzle, but the closest town is (as you put) is definitely Badgingarra. Anyway just to let you know it wasn't a hoax, just some poor editing on my behalf. Keep up the good work! Hughesdarren (talk) 04:12, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Berckelman River[edit]

Hi, good to see another Wikipedian with an interest in NW history :-) I have just reverted your last two edits to Berckelman River and made a few other corrections: Mary Ann, bron 1822 (and her sister Eleanor) spelt their surname Berckelman; it is highly unlikely that both TC & RJ Sholl would have misspelt their mother's/wife's maiden name and Landgate also suggests that the river has always been spelt "Berckelman" <http://www.landgate.wa.gov.au/corporate.nsf/web/History+of+river+names> (so I guess the newspaper made a mistake). Also, The Sholls moved from Camden Harbor to Tien Tsin Harbor (later Cossack) in late November 1865 (not 1866). (Roebourne did not exist at the time; the townsite was chosen by RJ Sholl and it was gazetted in 1866 (see <http://www.landgate.wa.gov.au/corporate.nsf/web/History+of+Country+Town+Names>).

apologies in advance[edit]

I am sorry , but I have a problem with the Midland railway line edit you added - the extension beyond Midland, in effect belongs to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Railway_%28Western_Australia%29 - a long abandoned and not improved for many years article... Helena Vale/Midland is the article context the terminus of the story, and anything further really should be on the Eastern Railway article (which the midland line was part of)... It would be good to talk about this first before modifying any further, if we can - cheers sats 09:20, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Perth temperatures[edit]

Looks like you only reverted 1 of the IP's 2 edits to the pages, after I had undone both edits.

Timeline of Australian history[edit]

Hello! May I ask what exactly do notable Australian events constitute? If I may, I'd like to point out that for the year 1788, the exact same format was contributed! It's a dilemma because most of the information which I intend to contribute are in that format too! >.<

I'm thus seeking permission for reverting back to include my contributions (With your opinion of course c:). Thanks, Tayzhian (talk) 07:28, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Melbourne pronunciation[edit]

I didn't change the pronunciation of Melbourne in order to make it more "American." The phoneme in the pronunciation that we're disputing over is conventionally /ər/, not /ə/; see Help:IPA_for_English. This is IPA broad transcription and helps Aussies as well as Scots, Americans, Canadians, Irish, Indians, etc. familiar with IPA to pronounce the name of the city in their respective dialects of English.

List of active gold mines in Nevada[edit]

Hello, I had added my Mine to this page and you removed it and left a comment. The figure quoted was from bulk testing and sampling from various locations of the property. All permitting from the state have been granted and we are fully bonded. Dun Glen has commenced full production as of November 2014. Yield projections for 2015 are expected to exceed the lower 2 mines that are listed on the page. My question is, Since we are an active mine in Nevada, How do I have my mine show up on that page? Thank you Pete.umrc (talk) 21:52, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Pete,
Active mines should have a reference for their latest production figures. There is a bunch of permitted mines in Nevada about to go into production that have impressive forecast production rates but that's not what this list is for. Perhaps some Dun Glen December quarter production figures when they are filed would do the job, but at the moment there is no citable information for this mine as a producer that I can see/find.

Australian Dictionary of Biography[edit]

People with articles on ADB meet the basic requirement of being sufficient notable to be mention within articles, in most case they meet the requirements of being sufficiently notable for stand alone articles please refrain from reverting editors who cite ABD by claiming they arent notable... would also point otu that WP:AGF and WP:BITE are also something you could consider before reverting new editors with such ridiculous assertions that people cited to relaible sources arent notable.
