Open Help Conference

The Open Help Conference will be taking place June 15-19 in Cincinnati Ohio, USA. The conference includes two days of presentations and open discussions, followed by team "sprints" - collaborative efforts to write and improve documentation.

It has been suggested to send a team from Wikipedia/Wikimedia: to share our own knowledge about help, learn from others in the open source community working on similar problems, and to carry out a sprint to improve some aspect of Wikipedia's help.

There may be support available for volunteers to attend from the Participation Support program (and your editor is certainly hoping to be there!) Please join the discussion in Meta's IdeaLab if you're interested, and/or have suggestions about what we could work on.

If you don't wish to receive this newsletter on your talk page in future then just edit the participants page and add "no newsletter" next to your name.

Re Moa hunters-inland along clutha river etc[edit]

Hi, Ive tried my best to condense a huge ammount of information to just a few sentences. I believe the information was an accurate synopsis of the very detailed research. Rather than just delete it, which is not very helpful, can you say what you found inaccurate or wrong? I will try to get back to it and fix any errors when I have time. Thanks for your interest and help.

The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Your recent reverts on Maori land[edit]

You cannot just revert without some sort of explanation. I have 2 sections of information relating to my edits on land in "talk".You need to read that. Anyone who doesn't realise land is at the heart of Maori culture should not be editing that article."doesnt belong here "is a totally pointless and wrong statement. It seems to me you have little knowledge of the topic to write this. Land is at the very heart of Maori culture. Cultural attitudes to land did not stay static. The period of most change was post 1864. Go onto the talk page and argue your point that information about land doesnt belong in an article about Maori culture. I will be really interested to see them.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited New Zealand Parole Board, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Victoria University, Tony Taylor and John Robson. 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.

Ferrymead 125 and NZ Rail 150[edit]

Hi, re your PROD of Ferrymead 125 and NZ Rail 150: I notice that you used the rationale "Not notable. No evidence of awards, charting or in depth coverage in independent reliable sources. No refs" - why are awards necessary, and what "charting" would there have been? This sounds like a rationale for a music album, not a railway event. It is also not the first time that you have done this: you used almost exactly the same rationale two months ago on this steam locomotive. Please ensure that the PROD rationale is appropriate. --Redrose64 (talk) 14:16, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Wellington GAA[edit]

Hi Stuart - noticed your prod on the Wellington GAA article. There is also an Auckland GAA one. I think it might be better to merge both articles into a new one about Gaelic Football in New Zealand instead. Your thoughts? NealeFamily (talk) 00:09, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

The problem with that approach is that neither of them have reliable sources, so merging doesn't help. Indeed, Australasia_GAA is also lacking independent sources. Sport really isn't my thing, but someone needs to find sources for these. Stuartyeates (talk) 01:58, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
Agreed, but they probably will have some sources as it is an international sport, albeit that it would be relatively minor in NZ and probably Australia. It put a note to the author and see what happens. NealeFamily (talk) 03:33, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Merge and redirect[edit]

Just so you know, "merge and redirect" is the same as "merge" since "redirect" is implied once the merge is complete (so as to keep the links of attribution). czar  16:10, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I'm aware that redirect is the default. I find "merge and redirect" a better explanation for newbies, however. Stuartyeates (talk) 19:34, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Queensland Heritage Register - live and dangerous![edit]

I have started rolling out the articles (and learning new things as I go and tweaking the generator accordingly for future articles). They automatically go into the hidden Category:Articles incorporating text from the Queensland Heritage Register (please review) which is a sub-category of the hidden Category:Articles incorporating text from the Queensland Heritage Register. After someone other than me has reviewed/refined them, I am asking if they can move the article into the parent category. That way, the "please review" category should contain only the newer unreviewed items. So when you have a spare moment, please feel free to review/refine the new articles. I am not sure how quickly I will roll them out (a bit under the hammer with real life and WMAU events at the moment). So thanks in advance for any help you can give. With continual editor attrition, I think we have to move more to using to automation to create and maintain articles, but it is a "dark art". Kerry (talk) 22:36, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm HasteurBot. I just wanted to let you know that Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Women's Refuge (New Zealand), a page you created, has not been edited in 6 months. The Articles for Creation space is not an indefinite storage location for content that is not appropriate for articlespace.

If your submission is not edited soon, it could be nominated for deletion. If you would like to attempt to save it, you will need to improve it.

You may request Userfication of the content if it meets requirements.

If the deletion has already occured, instructions on how you may be able to retrieve it are available at WP:REFUND/G13.

Thank you for your attention. HasteurBot (talk) 01:32, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Please see your request details and comments at the permissions page.

Wikipedia Accountcreators.png

After reviewing your request for the account creator right, I have enabled the flag on your account. Keep in mind these things:

  • The account creator right removes the limit on the maximum number of new accounts that can be created in a 24-hour period.
  • The account creator right is not a status symbol. If it remains unused, it is likely to be removed. Abuse of the account creator right will result in its removal by an administrator.

If you no longer require the right, let me know, or ask any other administrator. Drop a note if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of the account creator right. Happy editing! — xaosflux Talk 13:44, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Threat[edit]

I find it strange that you should threaten me with a formal notice of banning when you are the one reverting. I on the other hand have followed all Wiki guidelines by providing refs and going to the talk page and explaining at length and in detail, in a constructive manner, the significance of my addition. Your brief, flippant and misspelt response is unacceptable and juvenile.This is not the first time you have been warned about edit warring. You have obviously not read what I wrote .To clarify: the original edit simply contained bald facts that were referenced. When challenged to explain these, I did. Then you said I was "pushing a line".I was just explaining the significance of the edit to anyone unfamilar with NZ history. The explanation or interpretation is not part of the edit!Very simple really. Claudia — Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.62.226.243 (talk) 01:29, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
