Am looking forward to that! Cheers. Moondyne (talk) 04:41, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Oops[edit]

I'm not sure how folks 'talk' on talk pages Moondyne - don't know if they edit an existing conversation or start a new heading? Sincerest apologies if I've stuffed up your talk page - (I will learn). I need any help I can get :) What's the 'Wikisource' you mentioned in the post you made which I'm responding to? Calamity Hill (talk) 04:55, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

There's no hard and fast rules about 'talk' protocol. My preference is to almost always reply on the same page as is the immediate conversation I'm replying to. (thats bad sentence structure but I hope you get the drift). If you ask me a question on my talk page, I assume you'll watch my page to see the reply. Others prefer to always reply on their own talk pages and send the other person a {{talkback}} message. And others do as they feel. Your choice and not a big deal whichever way you go. Generally we only start a new heading if its a new topic, but again no hard rules.
Wikisource is a sister project to Wikipedia which aims to develop a library of free and open source documents. Old books is its bread and butter. Users there transcribe and proofread such sources which are then available to all. See s:Magic (Ellis Stanyon) for a sample. There's lots of collaboration as well as opportunity to potter away in the corner at your own pace depending on your want. Moondyne (talk) 05:12, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Cake-cartoon.jpg My first edit was on 28 October 2003; I've been here for 10 years today. Moondyne (talk) 03:36, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

didnt think you were that celebratory, .... well done - you survived !!! satusuro 04:42, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

docos on locals[edit]

nah will have to catch up on iview if it is there. the story about her is a bit too, how can I put it, close to a number of people of whom I have known or still know. Not specifically, but, complex things like that sort of make our city the ultimate location for the people in things like that to end up here. I think it means we need to have that lunch, before christmas! satusuro 08:12, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Alec Bannerman.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Alec Bannerman.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

hello[edit]

having had a few years to think this one over - surely this is not really colonies - even now? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:List_of_Australian_penal_colonies - surely there is a better term, and considering the high level of sophisticated discussion there :) - we just move it to a better name?... cheers satusuro 01:54, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Penal colony defines the term fairly well. What name would you suggest? Perhaps List of Australian penal settlements? Moondyne (talk) 02:15, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
hmm trumped, maybe we leave it like that but with qualifiers from the article you have referred to... satusuro 08:16, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
No need to feel trumped, but I'm not not sure what more I can do. Moondyne (talk) 14:26, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
no need - the lede is expanded and all is well... in a manner of speaking satusuro 23:38, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

mail[edit]

you have some, hoppy christmas etc. satusuro 15:24, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Time to unprotect Banjo Paterson?[edit]

It's been three years. reinthal (talk) 13:24, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Lets see how it goes. Moondyne (talk) 21:24, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

Savoy Hotel[edit]

I actually moved it from my sandbox to the mainspace - only to find the reason it was in my sandbox was because there was a nomber of copyvio that I hadn't dealt with - so I tried to move it back to my sandbox but it would allow it because of a double redirect - so it got moved to a draft - who figures? Dan arndt (talk) 03:41, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Indef semi[edit]

Hi Moondyne, would you consider unprotecting or applying pending changes to Antonia Fraser (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views). It only gets around 100 views a day so hopefully the socking has stopped. Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 00:20, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Happy to do so. Let me know if you want to reprotect later. Moondyne (talk) 09:11, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

Historic buildings[edit]

I just started a discussion at WP:AWNB about standardising the formats we use for historic buildings articles around the country, and with the work you've done in the area, I'd love your thoughts. The Drover's Wife (talk) 13:03, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for asking, but I'll leave for others with more time and interest. Cheers. Moondyne (talk) 09:41, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

g'day[edit]

good to see you still around for spot fires... satusuro 09:44, 10 March 2014 (UTC) hahah with ipad and wikipedia - not worth it - one of my more major bad edits of 2013 because of that :( satusuro 13:25, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

I should stay at Wikisource where I cant hurt anyone. If I come over here again you can tell me to piss off. Moondyne (talk) 13:39, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
obviously the long talked about lunch of 2 years standing is needed soon - nah come back more often, the buggers here are more and more cretinous - your style is sorely missed... satusuro 13:44, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
fair enough - but the julie support is one thing - harry's hell be back inference does have a certain sense of the old dog is not down yet... and yeah reckon it should have an ip block on it too... satusuro 01:42, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
and reverting the text of what i had inferred would have been enough - the story of bishops support is in fact a good item to balance...an otherwise over-critical article satusuro 01:49, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
The principle should apply apply for negative and positive POVs. Else its a slippery slope. Moondyne (talk) 01:52, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
also when are you gonna launch your masterpiece with fin... it is such a brilliant hard worked on table - I miss your masterpieces - when ya gonna launch it? satusuro 01:54, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
References are flakey. Needs a lot more work. Moondyne (talk) 02:03, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

File:Wagroupsettlement.jpg needs authorship information[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Wagroupsettlement.jpg appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided), authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

  • If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which: {{subst:usernameexpand|Moondyne}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.
  • If this is an old image, for which the authorship is unknown or impossible to determine, please indicate this on the file description page.
If you have any questions please see Help:File page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:18, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Senani Ponnamperuma[edit]

Hi, just dropping by since you are both an old hand at WP, and a member of the Oz literature project. I came across problems at this article and have taken some fairly firm editorial action, and raised a sticky issue at the talk page. I don't really want to get involved, but i was concerned about some of the sourcing etc. It'd be great if some other uninvolved eyes were on this just in case there are problems. Cheers, hamiltonstone (talk) 11:26, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi. I will look into this soon. In the meantime you might want to notify the spam noticeboard at Wikipedia:WikiProject Spam for wider opinion. Moondyne (talk) 13:50, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

User talk:Johnlp[edit]

Hi there. Following your recent revert on this page and the block you have correctly placed on the banned editor who is unquestionably Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Richard Daft, can I please point out that Johnlp's talk page is perceived by Daft to be a "safe haven" and so he is a frequent visitor, helped by Johnlp's reluctance or refusal to do anything to protect the page. As a result, non-admins seeking to revert Daft's inputs using WP:BMB, WP:DENY, etc. risk getting into an argument with Johnlp himself about his "right" to let anyone use his page, even someone who is subject to site-wide WP:BAN like Daft. May I suggest, therefore, that this safe haven is summarily closed by means of semi-protection, regardless of Johnlp's views as he cannot be allowed to facilitate Daft's usage of the site. HCCC14 (talk) 16:57, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

If Johnlp wants PP I'm happy to assist in that. Moondyne (talk) 00:32, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Houston[edit]

Life is short. Why do you want to waste your time and mine edit-warring? Pdfpdf (talk) 15:40, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Cricket NSW[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 Cricket NSW requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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.
