Great work on the terrace houses ![edit]

Being from Brisbane, so seeing my beloved Cook's Terrace and the one Edmonstone Street all in one place on Wikipedia is just plain awesome. Good to see some dig up some great examples from Sydney as well. I have travelled the country finding some great examples of terrace housing in the inner city areas. I only have access to Melbourne at the moment and none of my photos from Sydney and Newcastle were in digital. Nevertheless, I'm hoping to get back to Newcastle and or Launceston to take some snaps. Anyway, great work, the article is looking great these days keep it up ! --Biatch 07:05, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the correction, I'm just a soft southerner temporarily exiled to Newcastle for a few weeks this year. It all becomes a blur once I'm north of Watford. Jimfbleak.talk.12:12, 4 January 2007 (UTC))

Image: On Everleigh Street.jpg[edit]

Hey I loved your shots of Redfern for the Redfern Article, but I just thought I would note that your image "On Everleigh Street" is actually on Lawson Street. I live on the street, and the pub at the very end of the street is at the intersection of Lawson Street and Abercrombie.

Duplicate images uploaded[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:A 4 litre Cask of Australian Red Wine.jpg. A machine-controlled robot account noticed that you also uploaded the same image under the name Image:A 4 litre Cask of Australian Red Wine.JPG. The copy called Image:A 4 litre Cask of Australian Red Wine.JPG has been marked for speedy deletion since it is redundant. If this sounds okay to you, there is no need for you to take any action.

This is an automated message- you have not upset or annoyed anyone, and you do not need to respond. In the future, you may save yourself some confusion if you supply a meaningful file name and refer to 'my contributions' to remind yourself exactly which name you chose (file names are case sensitive, including the extension) so that you won't lose track of your uploads. For tips on good file naming, see Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions about this notice, or feel that the deletion is inappropriate, please contact User:Staecker, who operates the robot account. Staeckerbot 10:15, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

RE: Armidale Gallery[edit]

Hi there. The Metadata attached to the photographs advise that they were taken in 1997. Please accept my apologies if this information is incorrect. Please also take some time to read about assuming good faith and etiquette. Thanks! --Biggles 15:01, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Hey Michael. Good work on the photos from Armidale! Sorry I never got the chance; I destroyed my car soon after I promised to go picture taking - still waiting on insurance things. How were res schools? --Biggles 23:40, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Camperdown gallery[edit]

Hi JBar I note you saw my photos re Camperdown. As I was inserting the WikiTable I realised that it would not be in 'proportion' with the other galleries on the page. I personally prefer WikiTable because, as you may have noticed, it is possible to put in a strip of piccies that has photos big enough for casual browsers to see a reasonable sized photo without necessarily having to click on a little thumbnail to see a larger picture. Often that's all they require. WikiTable doesn't take up much more real estate on the page, if any, than the old style gallery which contains a lot of white space, and as a fairly prolific poster of images of terraces and other old buildings in Australia I tend to use WikiTable as opposed to gallery. What are your thoughts on this? (as an example of a WikiTable version of Gallery see my photos at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubbo,_New_South_Wales - Architecture)- Personally I would like to see all galleries upgraded to WikiTable where appropriate. Cheers Michael --MichaelGG (talk) 12:04, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

G'Day Michael. I actually preferred the look of wikitables too and was using them for my photos in a number Sydney suburb articles. A while ago, wiki administrators went through all the Sydney suburb articles and converted all my wikitables to galleries. They said it was because the wikitables took up too much space and it's easy for readers to click on the pictures if they want a closer look. Also, wikipedia can be viewed in a number of different formats and sometimes the wikitables cause huge gaps in the layouts or blank out the photos in a table. I've was able to confirm this myself when I've logged on at a few different places like the library, work etc... So, I guess the main reason I changed your photos from wikitable to gallery in the Camperdown article is so we have a standard across the article and also because there would be no problems in viewing the pictures in any other format. Cheers J Bar (talk) 22:50, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the info J Bar, obviously in the case of Camperdown I should have stayed within the style of the page, just interested in the use of Wiki Tables in general and note Wikipedia's space concerns. Also having a good monitor I tend to forget that many people are viewing on smaller or older displays, especially many overseas. Cheers. Michael--MichaelGG (talk) 03:07, 1 February 2008 (UTC)


Duplicate Image:Dubbo Victorian Terraces.jpg[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Image:Dubbo Victorian Terraces.jpg, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Image:Dubbo Victorian Terraces.jpg is a duplicate of an already existing article, category or image.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Image:Dubbo Victorian Terraces.jpg, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. To see the user who deleted the page, click here CSDWarnBot (talk) 20:22, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

In response to your note on my talk page

You mean " Image:Terrace in Dubbo New South Wales.jpg "? It's still there. A while back there was a group project that I participated in that eliminated duplicate pictures, meaning that there was more than one copy of the exact same picture uploaded. The intent was to only eliminate duplicates that were not used in any article. It's possible I goofed. ike9898 (talk) 16:09, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Terraced housing: Globalize[edit]

The reason I added the template rather than edit the page is that I don't know quite enough about terraced housing in Continental Europe to write intelligently about it, but I do know enough to know that there's a lot of it in the Low Countries and other parts of northwestern Europe (a good friend of mine lived in a row house in Brussels for about ten years). I actually don't have much to add, but I'm sure that we can find someone else who does, which is why I added the template. Lockesdonkey (talk) 17:20, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
