Uber regulation summary: help needed[edit]

Hi Ballofstring, I'm reaching out to each of the editors who commented on the "Request for Comment" at Talk:Uber (company) re: the Uber article's section on regulation and legal issues. As you might remember, editors were overwhelmingly in favor of splitting off that information into a new article, then summarizing in the Uber article. While the first part happened, there has been no movement on the summarizing and Regulatory opposition continues to grow and grow. To help kickstart that process, I've put forward a draft for everyone to take a look at that aims to cover the key details in a summary form: Summarizing Regulatory opposition

My conflict of interest means that it's best for me not to be bold and move this into the article myself, but I hope that it can at least be a starting point for other editors to work from. Would you mind coming back to the page to have a look? Craig at Uber (talk) 19:49, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Good work on Public Trust Building. Have you considered taking it to WP:DYK? Stuartyeates (talk) 22:02, 1 June 2015 (UTC)
Yes, good work. If you do nominate it for DYK, note that it's currently not long enough; they require 1500 bytes of prose (and that excludes quotations). Schwede66 09:54, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you both! I've always thought it was a very beautiful building and was surprised it didn't have a wiki page already! I'll do a bit more expanding and then have a think about DYK. Cheers! Ballofstring (talk) 09:31, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
It is a stunning building all right! But to avoid potential DYK disappointment, articles have to be nominated within seven days of having been created. That's today or tomorrow, so don't think about it for too long. Schwede66 18:25, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

Burnside High School[edit]

Hello! I am working on the russian version "Burnside High School" article, which currently has short history section in wikipedia. I am writing you to ask - is there a possibility for you to visit a National Library at Welligton and obtain an electronic copy of book "Choosing the right path : Burnside High School 1960-2010 / Paul O'Connor" (, and put some information into the article? Also I can buy a hard copy of that book. Could you give me an advice, if it's possible? I'll be happy to get any version and any part of that book. Thank you for your time, --Voyagerim (talk) 13:26, 7 June 2015 (UTC)
