Better source request for File:Harry Seidler with model.jpg[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 03:09, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Blackheath[edit]

Noting that Harry seidler is still needing a citation
And "please be bold and replace the "Citation needed" template with enough information to locate the source."
I would've thought a link to all the pages would be sufficient. Why haven't you been bold and deleted the un-refed paragraph? --Dave Rave (talk) 13:54, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Are you talking about File:Harry_Seidler_with_model.jpg and a request for more information? If you are then I don't have any more information to add. I contacted someone at his firm (18 months later I am not sure exactly who this was) letting them know I was from Wikipedia and they gave me permission to use the image they supplied. If I recall correctly there was a short delay while they contacted the photographer for permission. I just noticed that the summary description includes the name Eric Sierins. His attribution might mean its not a generic link to a website as the source. If someone is going to to delete it because they want better source information and don't have it, then it really isn't anything to do with me. I didn't remove the template because it says only to do so if more information is provided. Why did you choose Blackheath as the title for this? - Shiftchange (talk) 21:59, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

What you provided is a list of web links not a citation. You didn't provide a unique source of information which supports the preceding statement. The claim has been challenged and still requires a reference. - Shiftchange (talk) 00:36, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
a list of links, 9 on the first page, of which anyone of them would have been sufficient for a citation. Instead of doing a little copy editing, you deleted the lot and left the paragraph vulnerable again to citation deletion. Being bold isn't being negative. --Dave Rave (talk) 01:20, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
You seem significantly concerned about this to take the time to repeat yourself here but not to add a citation to Blackheath, New South Wales. Your attempt to add a citation was undoubtedly inadequate. If you want to make sure Bradman's achievements on the pitch at Blackheath are not removed from the article then you need to provide a citation to a reliable source which supports the claim. That is what every single other editor is required to do. I add citations on an almost daily basis. In fact for every five main space edits of mine I most probably add at least four references. I would never consider adding a bare url for one and never pretend a google search list result is a citation. Nor would I expect another editor to clean up my sloppy contributions. If you must know, I loathe cricket and have no interest in spending time on the matter. - Shiftchange (talk) 05:30, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

The lake/dam/locality are in Somerset Region rather than Lockyer Valley. Kerry (talk) 05:44, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Nicely spotted, thanks for that. - Shiftchange (talk) 08:13, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
