Proposed deletion of Andrew Hutchinson (author)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Andrew Hutchinson (author) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

None of the sources (except the subjects' myspace page) actually seem to discuss the topic. No evidence of meeting WP:AUTHOR.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Art+Feminism Editathon[edit]

Hi Tullyis, I saw your post about running an event at Flinders University, South Australia. You mentioned running it virtually because the time is so much earlier there: Your event doesn't have to coincide with the NYC event! You can run your event whenever you want. Which might mean running it during daylight hours. Heck, the Los Angeles group is running it the next weekend because there are two major art fairs in town Feb 1, and *everyone* is bussssy. But do it as you wish, and we welcome you. You should create an event section for Flinders University, so other Australians can be in conversation about regionally specific subject matter (I have someone from UNSW who is interested)--Theredproject (talk) 01:41, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Justine Cooper (artist)[edit]

Hello Tullyis,

It seems to me that an article you worked on, Justine Cooper (artist), may be copied from http://eyebeam.org/people/justine-cooper. It's entirely possible that I made a mistake, but I wanted to let you know because Wikipedia is strict about copying from other sites.

It's important that you edit the article and rewrite it in your own words, unless you're absolutely certain nothing in it is copied. If you're not sure how to fix the problem or have any questions, there are people at the help desk who are happy to assist you.

Thank you for helping build a free encyclopedia! MadmanBot (talk) 23:05, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Justine Cooper (artist)[edit]

Hello Tullyis,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Justine Cooper (artist) for deletion, because it seems to be copied from another source.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Wgolf (talk) 23:38, 1 February 2014 (UTC) Okay it seems you have made a few articles on here-is that page in public domain then I guess? I saw that the bot was on there and I"ve seen several new users today with stuff like this so I thought maybe you were one sorry. Wgolf (talk) 23:41, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Indigenous/indigenous[edit]

You recently edited several articles changing the spelling of "indigenous" to "Indigenous" (with a capital "I") with the edit summary "changed indigenous to Indigenous for consistency and to be inline with inclusive language principles". Could you point me to the Wikipedia guideline/policy which deals with this matter in the way you describe it? I can't find any such directive at Talk:Indigenous Australians or its archives or at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Capital letters and its archives. Some Australian government departments and broadcasters use the capital "I", but others, most prominently The Australian newspaper, don't. The point, however, is that Wikipedia doesn't follow outside style guides (because they are contradictory) but formulates its own, WP:MOS. The relevant part of style guide, MOS:CAPS, has a clear preference for avoiding capital letters unless there is unambiguous usage as a proper name. The word "indigenous" does not fall in that category. You might take note that Wiktionary has only an entry for "Wikt:indigenous", but none for "Wikt:Indigenous". -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 12:36, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your comments. You're right: I haven't been able to find it in Wikipedia's policy. You're not quite correct when you say "some government departments" as it is now standard policy pretty much everywhere (I haven't found a department where it isn't policy but I'm wary of being categorical). I acknowledge that the Australian, a prominent newspaper, does not capitalise Indigenous. I think it is absolutely crucial for Wikipedia to adopt the policy, and I note that the majority of pages dealing with Indigenous matter does already do this, at least in part. I'm attempting to make the pages consistent in themselves and consistent with Australian standards. The capitalisation is used to distinguish indigenous and aboriginal as biological terms from Indigenous and Aboriginal as markers of a particular identity. Australian is capitalised. English is capitalised. American is capitalised. Native American is capitalised. Aboriginal and Indigenous need to be capitalised as well and, indeed, they are by many style guides in Australia. Here are the resources I'll be using to make the case:

It's not a matter of style, in the way style guides exist to ensure consistency and common sense, but a matter of rights and respect. Do you have any suggestions for how to proceed? Thanks for your input. -- Tullyis (talk) 13:10, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

I don't dispute the usage of the capitalised spelling by Australian government departments, but Wikipedia articles on the subject being inconsistent doesn't at all endorse the uppercase usage, does it? And where and why does the term "indigenous" signify any kind of identity? It is indeed a matter of style; to suggest that using the lower case spelling is an expression of disrespect is in itself offensive in several ways. English uses capital letters for proper names, not to express societal values. A proper name is almost always a noun, not an adjective. An adjective can be part of a proper name, e.g. the Roaring Twenties, and that's why "Aboriginal Australian" has been accepted (and "Aboriginal" as its short form) and that's also why "Indigenous Australian" could possibly be considered a proper name. However, your changes at Contemporary Indigenous Australian art do not fall in that category. I don't accept that "indigenous art", "indigenous batik" etc. have to be spelled in uppercase and that not doing so is disrespectful.
I've tried to raise this matter before at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Capital letters, with very limited success (1 editor engaged). I don't know any better venue. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 12:27, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
