Important info about topic[edit]

Why q.v. because I was trained that way :)

In wikipedia people, and bots, seem to link to lots of things that are of a highly general nature and not important context. I figured using q.v would allow me to flag the ones that contained important information about the topic, the ones you should definitely click on if you are interested.

If there is a better wiki style for accomplishing accomplishing this I will use it. Though haven't seen anything other than advise to not link everything because it makes the articles hard to read and the important links hard to find.

Anything I copy will be quoted, (and I am learn doing citations according to wiki style). This article, for example, comes from studying the entries in the Australian Encyclopedia under a variety of article, the website and other stuff I have read. Then me figuring it out and writing about it.

Figured I use the be bold recommendation and "someone will clean up afteryou" bit.

  • Please don't use quod vide (q.v.) - it is appropriate for text; hyperlinks are in effect a q.v. system--A Y Arktos\talk 10:02, 4 June 2006 (UTC)
  • as per user talk page discussion, use see also section--A Y Arktos\talk 00:50, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

The first four links are to newspaper articles. Considering the reams of academic and refereed works devoted to early Aus history newspapers should be avoided. Macs father appears to have some involvement in the Jacobites (pro-Stuart Catholics) and this needs a bit of expanding. Was Mac active in asserting Catholic dominance in the colony? He insisted the largely protestant colonial authority gave him a raw deal, although these were ruses to cover his own power ambitions. (talk) 03:07, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Macarthur as Civilian[edit]

Australians: Events and Places - one of the history series produced for the bicentenary (published 1987) - page 17 refers to Macarthur's return in 1805 as "returned to NSW as a civilian settler after the British government accepted his resignation from the army and approved his return."--A Y Arktos\talk 00:50, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:AUD2.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:AUD2.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 lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

John F. MacArthur[edit]

Nobody searching for "John MacArthur" on Google is looking for the "wool pioneer", so a link has been added on top. Everybody would be looking for the controversial pastor (talk) 14:45, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Well, I guess I am "nobody" then as that's the best-known John Macarthur in my universe. Certainly I am not "everybody" as I never heard of the pastor. This is why we have disambiguation pages and has been linked accordingly. Kerry (talk) 22:53, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
