James Walker (Australian politician)[edit]

Hi - it's great to see your updates on Walker, since so many early politicians have such small articles. However, we really need sources for all that great info. Where did you get it from? (Without sources the information will have to be deleted or at least have a big tag saying it's unreferenced - and that would be a pity.) Frickeg (talk) 07:12, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! And bravo - the information's great! Frickeg (talk) 23:33, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Your contributed article, Edmund Mortimers, son of the 3rd Earl[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.

Hello, I notice that you recently created a new page, Edmund Mortimers, son of the 3rd Earl. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page - Edmund Mortimer, son of the 3rd Earl. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will to continue helping improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Edmund Mortimer, son of the 3rd Earl - you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think that the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. andy (talk) 00:00, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

The original article Edmund Mortimer combined two functions, disambiguous and an article on Edmund Mortimer, son of the 3rd Earl so I split it to make the disambiguous article and another one on the son of the 3rd Earl. I added an sBold text by mistake. I redid the article without the extra letter. The article with the exra letter should be deleted but I do not know how to do it.

  • As a general rule, just remove all content from the article and someone will be along shortly to delete it. andy (talk) 11:00, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Andrew Tink[edit]

Thanks for you help with that article. I had some time off during the Christmas hols and thought I would chance my arm by contributing to the articles on former NSW Politicians that looked a bit bare. I started on Andrew Tink, but didn't get time to finish it. You have done a brilliant job of summarizing his legislative career. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nswpollie (talkcontribs) 23:51, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Beecroft.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Beecroft.JPG. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 07:06, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 16[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited History of Israel, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Kingdom of Israel (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.

Mandatory Palestine[edit]

Please be aware that Mandatory Palestine, like all articles related to the Arab–Israeli conflict broadly construed, is subject to a one-revert restriction. That means an editor may make no more than one reversion to an article in any 24-hour period. For more information about this restriction, please see WP:ARBPIA#Further remedies. More information about reversion restrictions in general can be found at WP:3RR.

This message is meant to inform you of the restriction. It doesn't mean you've violated the 1RR restriction. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 05:46, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

1948 Arab–Israeli War --The lede is under discussion at Talk[edit]

Declaration of Independence[edit]

The reason the caption on "purpose" in the DOI article uses the phrase Mandate Palestine is because that is the common name for the territory, whereas "Eretz Israel" was the Jewish name for it (this is why the article on the territory is not called Eretz Israel"). The link you provided also states "On May 14, 1948, on the day in which the British Mandate over a Palestine expired, the Jewish People's Council gathered at the Tel Aviv Museum, and approved the following proclamation, declaring the establishment of the State of Israel.", which suggests the phrasing of the purpose is correct as it stands.

Walker[edit]

Hi. I removed the family history stuff because it really isn't relevant to Walker's biography. None of his children are notable, so they don't need to be listed beyond the number of children. If I've overlooked someone notable let me know, but we do not need to know their birthdates or even their full names since they were, as far as I can tell, not notable. There are people in his ancestry who are notable, and I've actually included them further up the article. The stuff about his wife's ancestry is debatable but again, if they aren't notable they do not need to be noted in an article about Walker. It's a biography, not a family history.

New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.nswjbd.org/.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) MadmanBot (talk) 05:25, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies[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 New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

UNGA 67/19[edit]

nice edits and background info, just to say though that per grammaical proper nouns "resolution" and "state" are not proper nouns. Per the latter, when in quotes then its okey to use it (though with "Sic)(Lihaas (talk) 23:36, 1 December 2012 (UTC)).

I agree with you (and the UN usage is wrong, probably political), but that specifically for when its in uquotes (where the section usage does have that?)(Lihaas (talk) 09:23, 2 December 2012 (UTC)).

Flinders[edit]

Hi,

I thought I'd bring this edit [3] to your attention, in case it got lost on your watchlist.

If this is indeed the case, perhaps a inline cite from your source you quoted in your comment, would help? --Inas (talk) 01:33, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Tomorrow's Symposium[edit]

Just a quick reminder to everyone who has indicated their interest on-wiki. The Wikimedia in Higher Education symposium at The University of Sydney is on tomorrow. We have a full day of speakers and workshops, and about 45-50 participants. Don't worry if you haven't officially registered, a few extra won't hurt. See you there. --99of9 (talk) 02:45, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

His Judgement is correct ( in my opinion) and shared with other Main stream Historians. If you do not agree may add another quote, which is correct in your view, together with Gelber quotation.

Tink Wentworth[edit]

Might you have his book with perhaps some details of his opinion of the birth date ? --Dave Rave (talk) 10:52, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

On page 8 of Tink's book (2009):

As D'Arcy set out with the heavily pregnant Catherine for Norfolk Island on 1 August 1790, he .... Early victualling records clearly show that when Darcy and Catherine arrived on Norfolk Island in mid-August, they were accompanied by the infant William Crowley. But when that infant, later known as William Charles Wentworth, died in England ...

On page 52 of Ritchie's (1997) book:

...where they sheltered in Cascade Bay. On Friday 13 August 1790 it blew a squall. That day, while the Surprize was anchored in the bay's protected waters, Catherine Crowley gave birth to a son who was to be named William.

Tink, despite the dogmatic date by Ritchie, leaves the date simply as between 1 August and mid-August. You can say that he was born in August 1790, but the exact date is in doubt. The best I can do is to put a question mark before 13. Trahelliven (talk) 01:39, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
