WP:SOAPBOX/WP:AGENDA? Timeshift (talk) 22:20, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi TimeShift9, Can you please be more specific about your allegation. I am trying to improve wikipedia by adding referenced material, fixing broken references, etc. Please stop blindly wholesale reversing my edits and please start being more constructive. I have posted a vandalism warning on (your talk page)Philiashasspots (talk) 03:02, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Warning for vandalism[edit]

Hello, I'm Philiashasspots. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to Vexatious litigation because it didn't appear constructive. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! Philiashasspots (talk) 03:07, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

I posted the above "Warning for vandalism" on Timeshift's talk page, but he deleted it (instead of archiving it) because he thought it was a "misplaced vandalism tag". Philiashasspots (talk) 10:34, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Advertiser articles[edit]

Hi! The two articles aren't available publicly online, but they can be read through ProQuest if you have access, and one is in Highbeam. But I can send you the text of them if you wish. - Bilby (talk) 09:26, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi Bilby! Am I supposed to respond here or on your talk page? Anyway I don't have ProQuest access, but will look into it. It would be very helpful if you could send me the text of the two articles. Philiashasspots (talk) 09:46, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

I've sent you an email with the text. ProQuest is generally available through libraries or educational institutions, but while I know that most Australian universities provide access, I'm not sure how common it is with public libraries. Along with NewsBank it has a good collection of Australian newspaper articles, although generally only from the very late 1990s or early 2000s, depending on the paper.
I've never been sure where the best place to respond to messages is, but generally with newer users I respond on their talk page, as they are less likely to be watching mine. :) - Bilby (talk) 10:39, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I hope this will document Dr. Bruno's "notability."

What can be done about the assumption that a photograph is a copyright violation? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gspat1185 (talkcontribs) 17:47, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi Gspat1185, I hope you now see how to reference properly and make the article look more like a "wikipedia article". I don't know how to deal with the assumed photo copyright violations. I think you add the photo to wikipedia and claim that you took and owned the photo. Someone can dispute that claim if they want and can prove it. Look at examples on other wikipedia pages. And don't forget when commenting on talk pages to put the colon at the start to indent and the 4 tildas at the end to add your automatic signature and prevent the SineBot from signing for you.Philiashasspots (talk) 01:04, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Hi Gspat1185, I think the way to add an image is to add it to this. See this for how to do it. Then once the image is in the public domain you can simply link to it from Wikipedia. Philiashasspots (talk) 07:35, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Stuff[edit]

Hi; glad to be able to move on from the Weatherill stuff. Should you be keen to contribute further there are many, many areas under WP:AUSPOL's purview that are outdated or need serious work, so we would of course appreciate your help anywhere you can give it. :)

Regarding Moon Mason: it's not really my area of the wiki but I had a look at it. My suggestions would be:

  • Be careful with capitalisation and that kind of thing. Headings should only capitalise the initial letter and common nouns ("Early life and family" not "Early Life and Family"). Italicised titles like 3 Suspicious Men should have each element capitalised.
  • Be aware that numbers should generally be written out fully ("two" rather than "2") when they appear in prose (this generally applies for numbers under 100).
  • Basic countries (Canada and Korea) do not need to be linked.
  • Try to consolidate your paragraphs. Lots of short paragraphs make for a choppy article.
  • The reference list has two main sources of information (Han Cinema and All K-Pop). Any diversifying that could be done in that area would be helpful, although I imagine this might require the use of sources in Korean. It's not a barrier to getting the article in the mainspace.

Good luck getting the article approved. Frickeg (talk) 20:31, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi Frickeg, thanks for those great tips. Philiashasspots (talk) 21:42, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Hi Frickeg, I have updated the Moon Mason page and hopefully I get over the approval line this time. I think I'll stay away from WP:AUSPOL until Timeshift finishes explaining to me the contribution guidelines over on the Weatherill page. In my user space I will work on Independent Commission Against Corruption (South Australia) draft article. How do I invite others to contribute in my user space? Philiashasspots (talk) 02:02, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
No worries. With the ICAC page: it's tricky to get people to contribute to userspace, but the best I could suggest would be to have a link on your userpage where you clearly indicate that you welcome others' contributions, and to leave a note at the relevant WikiProject. (WP:SA maybe - I'm not sure if there's one for Australian law.) (If you want my input on the Weatherill thing, I think Timeshift was referring to verifiability, not truth (an essay, but one that expands on key points of the verifiability policy) - i.e. just because something is true doesn't mean it can be included if it hasn't included notable secondary coverage. This was the key problem with the proposed material on that page.) Frickeg (talk) 06:43, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
I'm not bothered if others don't contribute. I'm in no hurry. Thanks for the essay. At a glance it looks good and I'll read it later. I just need to understand the meaning of notable secondary coverage. I guess that means The Advertiser or the Independent Weekly and/or tv/radio coverage...

Disambiguation link notification for January 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Electoral district of Cheltenham, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Independent (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.

Jay Weatherill[edit]

No problem. Done. --Saruman-the-white (talk) 08:47, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

So where did you get your opposition leader image from?[edit]

Interesting how the permission link has a small, different photo as opposed to yours which is a different, 2mb photo. If you're involved with him shouldn't you be getting OTRS image permission going instead? Timeshift (talk) 00:52, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Read this and ask a sensible question. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Timeshift9/Archive11#Steven_Marshall_image_source The image on the page with the permission was 2m a year ago. I assume someone shrunk it down because of the big size. Philiashasspots (talk) 14:39, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
So it should be in OTRS but isn't? Timeshift (talk) 23:44, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
It was deleted and added again about a year ago by the commons administrator https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:January who confirmed everything. Some discussion I can find is archived here https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:January/Archive_1#Possible_non-free_file. Philiashasspots (talk) 01:20, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
Also see here on this page and search for "File:Steven Marshall 220x250.jpg" https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Undeletion_requests/Archive/2013-07. You can see that the BIG version was confirmed by the license reviewer https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Martin_H and specifically the BIG version was the one to stay on commons because they don't keep downsized duplicates on commons. Philiashasspots (talk) 01:38, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

So you uploaded this. Still happy you did? LOL! :D Timeshift (talk) 01:45, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Yes it improves wikipedia. Before the page had that stupid photo of Duncan McFetridge growing out of his neck. {http://indaily.com.au/news/2014/05/27/hamilton-smith-decision-disgraceful-says-marshall/ This] may be a good article that could go with that old photo :) Like Labor wanted a two headed monster to come out of the libs.
