Speedy deletion of File:1930s photo of the foreshore above Jeffrey Street 001 001004.jpg[edit]

hello Orangemike

Apologies if I missed earlier warnings, or if the file was incorrectly tagged however can I check please your speedy deletion of this photograph. The photograph was important to the article. The reference citation in the article on Jeffrey Street was as follows and my recollection is that a similar citation was present on the photo page:

"View to St. Aloysius' College above foreshores of Kirribilli" (photo). 1 copyprint; b&w; 204 x 254 mm, This photograph shows construction on foreshores of Kirribilli above Jeffrey Street. Above the foreshores is St. Aloysius; College incorprating Dr. Cox's home. Whilst barely visible above the trees is the tower of Star of the Sea Church. The homes Greencliffe and Craiglea are also visible on the right hand side above M. Steel boatshed. Jeffrey Street Wharf and Jeffrey Street: North Sydney Council, original publisher unknown. 1930s. Retrieved 27 June 2010. Image 001\001004 

The file appears on the Local Government website and the source attributes the photo to "c 1930s". I thought (mistakenly) that all of the correct tags has been used both in the article and also on the photo page. I refer also to the Australian Copyright Council which states that in Australia Copyright has expired in photos taken prior to 1 January 1955. This photograph is therefore approximately 20 years out of copyright. Refer to the copyright regulation here.

<http://www.copyright.org.au/find-an-answer/browse-by-what-you-do/photographers/>

Can I seek your advice please as to how to reverse this or what additional "public domain" style tag you feel was missing which should have been present on this photo to cover any other countries copyright laws etc? This photo has been on this article for almost four (4) years and this is the first time that the PD status / copyright of these very old photos has been raised as an issue.

Is my deleted article stored in the Wikipedia database?[edit]

I was told my article about Claudia Caporal was deleted because it was biased and I was too "close" to her to be able to write her article. Is there a way to rescue the writing I did for it so that I may then edit it to an appropriate stage for publishing? Thank you. KatieLee92 (talk)

Second consideration appreciated on Talk:Gregor Collins[edit]

Hi, Orange Mike, or other user - this is a request for a second look ie a consideration in deleting the "Some or all of this article's listed sources may not be reliable" note that has been on the Gregor Collins article since September of 2013. Reliable sources and additional, validated wiki links (including the recently approved article Goodbye Promise) have been provided in the interim, proving it a worthy candidate for no flags. I have no reason to be untruthful that this article is indeed associated with me but that is in no way an indication it is a puff piece or autobiographical piece, nor should it not be considered just as neutral as any other entry. If for some reason it's still considered flag-worthy I'd appreciate an updated explanation and what needs to be secured to have it fully approved. Thanks for your time. Gregorcollins (talk)

Stephen Fry[edit]

I removed Category:Books by Stephen Fry from his novels because Category:Novels by Stephen Fry is already a subcategory of the books category, so including it seemed redundant. There was *some* logic behind the edits. :) Trivialist (talk) 11:44, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

It's bad enough, albeit a cliche, when a preacher's son goes bad. But when a preacher's son devotes himself to doing evil, while wrapping himself in a cloak of false piety, it brings out the Baptist-raised preacher in me. --Orange Mike | Talk 02:04, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Firefighters[edit]

Check my talk page. I'm the person who added firefighters to the article in the first place--earlier today, for evidently the first time in the article's history--so no, I don't need you to introduce me to any. Safehaven86 (talk) 05:04, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Uncontroversial move request[edit]

Say, Mike, any chance I can con you into moving John Hickman (congressman) to John Hickman (politician)? That would be the typical WP naming form. The current name is particularly annoying because if it is spelled correctly as John Hickman (Congressman), the result is a red link. Software is requiring an Administrator for this particular move... Best, —Tim Davenport /// Carrite (talk) 15:15, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Question about Good Article process[edit]

Hi OrangeMike,

Sometime ago (2008), I created a page about John L. Spivak the author. A lot of editors have put in work over the years, and I think it's getting good(ish). Any advice about how to improve it to GA status? I have never been involved in the process. I know your busy, but thanks in advance for any thoughts. Capitalismojo (talk) 03:31, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

I've never gotten caught up in the GA thing; don't even know whether any articles I've started have ever gotten that far. Sorry. --Orange Mike | Talk 01:00, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
@Capitalismojo: I have done about 30 GAs, some on BLPs, and reviewed a few as well. If you'd like me to take a look, let me know. CorporateM (Talk) 02:07, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks OrangeMike. No worries. Capitalismojo (talk) 02:52, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Shaygan Kheradpir[edit]

Any interest in participating in the ongoing discussion on this BLP page? I have a disclosed COI and the other editor is an SPA with editing habits that suggest a non-disclosed COI. Needs at least one actual volunteer to watchlist and hammer out a few things where myself and the other paid editor seem to disagree. I suppose you're probably rolling your eyes (perhaps rightfully so, I'm not really sure), that the article has attracted two paid editors and zero volunteers. CorporateM (Talk) 03:55, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Aw, jeez, this one just is not pushing my buttons at all. I'd suggest trying at WP:COIN. --Orange Mike | Talk 23:29, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
Haha - yah the COIN post was recently archived without discussion. I suppose if I were in another editor's shoes I would have a similar response along the lines of "pff I don't want to deal with this". Meanwhile it's frustrating from my shoes that well-sourced information is getting removed and unsourced or promotional content added by an editor not complying with the terms of use. CorporateM (Talk) 04:03, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Referral request[edit]

Hey, while we're chatting, a while back you said something about me being a model to follow for paid editing - a pretty rare compliment coming from someone that generally dislikes the practice. Do you know of anyone else worthy of similar praise? I have a situation where I cannot take on a client, because I have already edited their article as a volunteer and do not want to create the appearance of abusing my volunteer role. I think they mean well and want to refer them to a paid editor I can trust. @Cullen328: said they know of no one else and @DGG: said he was uncomfortable recommending someone. I tried a Wikipedian that asked me about a job years ago, but no response. I know there's lots of folks that follow the Bright Line, but generally what I've seen from them was not very neutral, involved unfair business practices, or bullying and POV railroading. Lots of volunteers might jump at the chance, but even members of the community (especially those willing to take on a gig), don't "get it", wouldn't act professionally, and make even worse edits when paid than those with experience getting paid for it.

Just trying to find a way to help them that doesn't involve me accepting any money from them, or spending dozens of hours on an article I don't have an interest in. Is there another sponsored editor you feel is trustworthy? CorporateM (Talk) 15:57, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
