Speedy deletion nomination of 555 Collins Street[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 555 Collins Street, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, 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 from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Gaurav Pruthitalk 04:15, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm MelbourneStar. I noticed that you made a change to an article, 555 Collins Street, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. —MelbourneStartalk 10:19, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to List of countries by population with this edit, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive, and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you. —MelbourneStartalk 10:29, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to blank out or remove portions of page content, templates or other materials from Wikipedia, as you did to List of countries by population with this edit, you may be blocked from editing. —MelbourneStartalk 10:32, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at List of countries by population shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. Ghmyrtle (talk) 10:52, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Australia. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Flat Out Let's discuss it 11:16, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Friendly and hopefully useful advice - 23 May 2013[edit]

Hi! Welcome to wikipedia. You haven't been here long, but I'm impressed by how many people's noses you have managed to get up in such a short period of time. If this is intentional, then you WILL be prevented from editing wikipedia.
However, if it is simply a case of you being new to wikipedia and not knowing how things work, then there is lots of help available to you to explain how wikipedia works, and explain to you what acceptable behaviour is. To date, the behaviour you have displayed is not acceptable.
Should you want help / advice, please feel free to ask questions on my talk page. Cheers, Pdfpdf (talk) 11:29, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Block notice[edit]

You have been blocked temporarily from editing for edit warring. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding below this notice the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.

Materialscientist (talk) 00:04, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

While you are blocked, please consider the following, the content that you kept removing from Australia was added specifically so that editors like you don't have to come along every day and update the estimated population figure. Instead, it updates automatically every day at 00:00 UTC (10:00 AM your time). Your earlier edit summary seems to misunderstand this process.[1] If you really think that the automated update is inadequate, then you need to commit yourself to having a single task in life, that of manually updating the population figure at Australia and List of countries by population, and the associated citations, every 90 seconds or so without fail, so that your actions are consistent with your words. --AussieLegend () 06:56, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

June 2013[edit]

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Australia and List of countries by population, you may be blocked from editing. The edits that you are making are the same edits that resulted in you being blocked recently. If you persist with these edits you are likely to find yourself blocked for progressively longer periods AussieLegend () 23:37, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Stop icon This is your last warning. The next time you edit disruptively, as you did at World population, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. AussieLegend () 01:56, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

As was explained in the edit summary reverting your last edit, the table uses 2011 forgures, not the figures from today. If you change the Australian figure, you need to change every other figure and citation in the table. --AussieLegend () 01:58, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Australia[edit]

Regarding your recent edits, please use the edit summary to describe your edits and reasoning. It helps other editors to track the changes. Cheers Flat Out let's discuss it 05:14, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing, as you did at Julia Gillard. Your edits have been reverted or removed.

Do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively may result in your being blocked from editing. Flat Out let's discuss it 05:16, 1 June 2013 (UTC) Please stop swapping images without giving a reason. Changes require consensus. WP:CONSENSUS Flat Out let's discuss it 05:17, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Non-free images[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you've been adding new photos to some articles. Unfortunately, because of licensing and other concerns, Wikipedia has very strict rules about the use of non free images. One of those is that of replaceability - if the non-free image could be replaced with an equivalent free one, even if it is not currently available, we can't use it. In particular, where living people are concerned, it is assumed that a free image would be possible except for very limited exceptions. The problem here is that you've been replacing free images with copyrighted ones, which isn't permissible under policy.

If you want to catch up on some of this, the policy is at Wikipedia:Non-free content, which explains the main issues, but I've also always found the copyright frequently asked questions page useful. - Bilby (talk) 05:25, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Stop icon This is your last warning. The next time you add an inappropriate image, as you did at Julia Gillard, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Flat Out let's discuss it 05:25, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use[edit]

Replaceable fair use File:Denis Napthine Premier.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Denis Napthine Premier.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 05:40, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Some imaging instructions...[edit]

I noticed you've been having some issues adding images to Wikipedia articles. To use a picture on Wikipedia, we need permission from whoever owns it.

  • If it is your OWN picture - then you can just upload it yourself, at "Commons", saying "It is entirely my own work" - at http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Upload .
  • If it is NOT YOURS, then the owner can give permission in two ways;
A) They could put it on a website (flickr, or their own site) with an appropriate licence, such as "Public Domain" or "Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike" (that is an option in flickr)
B) They could email us permission. You could ask them to do that, by sending them an email saying something like:
"Hi, I've written a page on Wikipedia, and I'd really like to add a picture - but as Wikipedia is FREE, we can only use freely-licenced pictures. If you have any which you can give permission for, please send me an email back with the text below, and the picture(s) attached."
-Then add a copy of this: http://enwp.org/user:chzz/help/myboilerplate (having filled the form out)
-And send the email (attached picture file + completed form) to: permissions-commons@wikimedia.org

If any of your questions about how to insert images into an article aren't answered in these instructions, please refer to Help:Files and to Help:Contents/Images and media for a master-listing of all pertinent image-use links.
Hope this helps - Shearonink (talk) 05:42, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Julia Gillard Official Portrait.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Julia Gillard Official Portrait.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. AussieLegend () 10:06, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
