Gangland Killings[edit]

shouldnt this mention carl williams or tony mokbel? i just noticed it barely mentions organised crime at all.

Hmm something about the CBD, especially around Burke street. (talk) 04:50, 20 July 2011 (UTC)


There should definitely be a lot more on the gangland war - there was over 30 murders!

Fair use rationale for Image:Louisecharmianfaulkner.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Louisecharmianfaulkner.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

"Recent Times"[edit]

I have deleted everything within the heading "Recent Times", because the entire section was made up. Cyril Washbrook (talk) 09:26, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

As have I. --A Bothan Spy 10:07, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

The same user seems to have come back a couple of times now to restore the fake section. I've reverted it again. Cyril Washbrook (talk) 09:52, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
It's back, I will delete it again, anyone able to block from editing? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:16, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Someone keeps reverting it, please keep an eye out as it's pure fiction (speaking as someone who lives in Melbourne) Adonai-aus- (talk) 00:14, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Silkandmiller.jpg[edit]

The image Image:Silkandmiller.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

where i the more crime in melbourne. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:16, 31 March 2010 (UTC)


This article seems to imply that melbourne is pretty safe, but it's way too dangerous at night, there's no go zones all over the place. (talk) 14:42, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
