Malvern House[edit]

Thanks for the great photo. I've slightly tweaked the cpations' wording. Harro5 08:10, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

Melbourne Town Halls[edit]

Thanks for your great contributions too, including other notable Melbourne buildings which I have seen popping up. I do seem to have covered a few in the north, although I get around most parts of Melbourne and always have my camera at the ready.--Melburnian 11:34, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Melbourne[edit]

Just dropped by to congratulate you on your excellent work on the Melbourne article - nice username, too :) Tpth 05:59, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

why thankyou. its a dirty job, but someone had to do it ;) --Biatch 01:13, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Balmain[edit]

Just saw your edit to Balmain. I've done a lot of work on the inner west articles and photo contributions and I'm wondering if the addition of a 'Gallery' section is the best way to go. There are numerous images of Balmain on Commons [1] and a while back I added the commons link box to the 'External Links' section of the Balmain article (and many others) so or readers can see additional pictures if they want to. Your pictures may be better suited as inline images in the article OR upload them to Commons with the other Balmain images for all to see if they want to. I'd be happy to help with the Commons upload if you need a hand. BTW, nice work on the Australian architectural styles article. amitch 11:42, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

To be honest, I'm only just starting to get my head around this whole commons thing and I much prefer to see images within the article so I know what it is talking about and can refer to them easily. Just a personal preference and I have seen it done on other articles. I have no idea where this sits in the Manual of Style however. --Biatch 01:16, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Username[edit]

You seem to have coped for most of a year with it, but ... I don’t really think your username is appropriate. Maybe you could be convinced to change it? —Felix the Cassowary 13:09, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

On what grounds ??? --Biatch 05:22, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

It is very similar to an offensive term, and a common way to say it without saying it. To me, that makes it the same. —Felix the Cassowary 13:50, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
It is similar to the word for a female dog. I can't see what is wrong with that ? Would you prefer me to use the name of a female sheep or a female horse ? --Biatch 05:55, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Melbourne (suburb) article[edit]

Considering your focus on the Melbourne (suburb) article, I think I’ll let you know that User:Adam Carr attempted effectively to unilaterally delete the article. I’ve reverted his change and justified it on the article’s brand new talk page. I hope you don’t take my request for you to change your name against me :) —Felix the Cassowary 14:18, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Rag trade[edit]

I reverted your change to Textile because the article as written isn't about the industry, but the material. I notice that Textile industry redirects there, and that is probably not ideal. You migth consider making Textile industry into a new article instead of a redirect. There is certainly enough of a cultural relevance that it should have its own article. — Saxifrage 23:23, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

good idea, that's exactly what I did. Cheers. --Biatch 07:14, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Sydney terraces[edit]

Hi Biatch, just to let you know that as part of dismantling my old site I've put a couple of Surry Hills photos in the Gallery that I took in 2002 and a lovely substantial stone terrace in the Rocks that is as solid and new-looking as when it was built when Queen Victoria was still probably a babe! Wonder how many of todays houses will last a quarter that long!

Any hints on how to use the Commons? How do you add, search and link commons files when you're editing a page? Quite out of my depth there.

Cheers, Michael User:MichaelGG

Wish I knew ... I have asked many the same question but still haven't found the answers. I'll stick to doing what I know I think ;) --Biatch 07:13, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Collins Street, Melbourne[edit]

Thanks for your contributions to Collins Street, Melbourne, particularly the great photos. (I love Old meets new architecture in melbourne.jpg). Keep up the good work. Blarneytherinosaur talk 01:42, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. You know what, I went back to visit the article after I read your comment and someone had removed it ! Their comment was that it didn't represent Collins Street ! That's wikipedia I suppose (but I am getting tired of arguing with some of the dimwits on this site and their perculiar views). Thanks again. Cheers. --Biatch 07:17, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Bates Smart[edit]

I read the Bates Smart article and i'm a little confused. You said that when Smart and Reed died, they were replaced by Smart. So, who actually died? Or are they replaced by someone else?

Thanks for picking that up. lol. I'll see if I can provide some citations for that article. --Biatch 07:20, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Brisbane Terraces[edit]

Think I've just about found everything in Bris! No luck at Dutton Park, went for a big drive today, covered the area from the cemetery down to West End. Ended up on Edomonstone Street. The reason I was looking in Dutton Park was because the Professor from the Brisbane Institute who wrote an article about the Undue Subdivision of Land Prevention Act says in his own page in the Brisbane Institute website that there are a few examples of terraces at Spring Hill etc etc etc and .. "a twosome at Dutton Park". I'm wondering if he has got his parks mixed up, as the Edmonstone ones overlook Musgrave Park and are 2 pairs, the one I put on the wiki page and the rather plain jane pair next door.

Still, I'll have another drive before I give up! Cheers MichaelGG

I think you may be right there. --Biatch 07:21, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks re Fisherman's Bend - the only changes I made were to standardise the infobox and put the geocoords in external links, so no harm done :) Orderinchaos78 08:09, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Queenscliff Victoria[edit]

Found my photos from the trip in 2002, thought I had lost them and put in a gallery. Note there's a photo of Fort Queenscliff lurking somewhere in the system because it popped up in my gallery, identically named "Fort Queenscliff.jpg" so I changed the name of mine as it's a nice sunny picture taken on one of those glorious crisp spring days that only Victoria can put on! (9 degrees in the morning and 34 in the afternoon) - MichaelGG

Michael, I reused one on the terrace house article and another on the coffee palace article. Cheers. --Biatch 04:54, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

cheers Michael

Port Phillip 10,000 Map[edit]

Thanks! I don't receive much congratulations on WP. I've been making a fair few maps for things that didn't have proper maps before. The map of Port Phillip 10,000 years ago is actually quite crude, but at least we've got a basic map of what the area would have looked like just prior to flooding. I noticed you study architecture? Where are you studying and how are you finding the course? Been studying much sustainable building? Nick carson (talk) 06:13, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

I finished my course at UQ. By the way, I'd like to add your image to the article on Port Phillip if I may because I think it is relevant there. --Biatch (talk) 06:56, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
I noticed you added it, all good :] I used MS paint to create it, just because its a very simple program, if a little time consuming. I'd recommend using photoshop or aperture. Just remember that the only job worth doing is a job well done, try to be inclusive and encompassing but concise, make sure it's clear and easy to read too :] Nick carson (talk) 10:02, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Urban structure of Melbourne[edit]

You removed a quote I added to the Melbourne article last year. Part of it was:

In the 1930s many larger buildings were constructed in the outlying border area, several with a characteristically "art deco" crown—a short tower of cantilevered awnings which serve only a graphical purpose—forming the apex.[1]

I thought this was useful, as the source is an article about photographing the city. Ottre 07:49, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Doesn't belong in the main article. But could go in the urban structure sub-article. --Biatch (talk) 15:31, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

2009 Vic fires[edit]

Hi Biatch, You have deleted tow background sectiosn on the fires. Building codes and climate change. The relevance of climate change is that these are the first major fires since the BushfireRC published its report and the CSIRO published theirs predicting increased severity of bushfires. These fires occurred during record temperatures. The fire union has expressed concern about climate change as a result of these fires. This is relevant background. Note I have not alleged specific causation. The relevance of building codes is that this is the greatest loss of life in a bushfire in Australia, many in their homes. Other states have already introduced specific codes for bush fire prone areas and the difference in opinion and current standard re temps is relevant background in understanding the scale of loss of life as the national standard is presently being debated I will reinstate the sections as background.dinghy (talk) 21:04, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Relevant to bushfires in Australia article, not just the 2009 fires and is bordering on POV as it pushes an agenda - not encyclopedic. --Biatch (talk) 12:07, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Melbourne[edit]

I wish you luck fixing the article back up again! I've given up and it's a sad shame to see the article being edited to low standards[2]. Bidgee (talk) 11:46, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

I know it sucks. Was a great article, but idiots keep ruining it. --Biatch (talk) 12:08, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Graphs[edit]

I've noticed that you have created a few graphs such as File:Melbourne metropolitan public transport usage.jpg. Since they're JPEG images representing simple line data, there are pretty noticeable compression artifacts visible. Is there any chance you could save the graphs in PNG (or SVG if you have the tools) format, which would result in a much better quality? The graphs are a great addition to the articles they appear in, but the quality gets a bit annoying (or maybe it's just me who really notices that stuff). invincible (talk) 16:41, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Melbourne tram extension proposals[edit]

Thats a good map. Will you be making a similar one for trains? If so be sure to cross-check with the 1969 Melbourne Transportation Plan and its map. LamontCranston (talk) 04:18, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Eastlink Light Rail Reservation[edit]

You've made a pretty big claim there: "When the Eastlink roadway was in planning, the State Government created a reservation for a future heavy or light rail corridor and conducted a feasibility study into a light rail system to service the outer eastern suburbs. However the road became tolled and light rail did not eventuate."

But the only thing the factsheet you cite says about rail at all is "EastLink allows for future public transport initiatives including bus services and heavy and light rail."

I'd say there is a bit of a discrepancy there. LamontCranston (talk) 04:46, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Launceston, Tasmania[edit]

Shamrock Hotel[edit]

You'll need to gather consensus for any move or disambig. Gwen Gale (talk) 00:58, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for posting to the article talk page. I'm wholly neutral about any move to make way for a disambiguation page, my only worry being that there is as yet no consensus (your first try at doing this was undone, then you tried again shortly after, all without meaningful dicussion, no harm done, now you know).

It may take a few days at least, to get input from editors. Since there seems to be only one other notable hotel with that name (so far), a disambiguation link at the top of the article, rather than a whole disambig page, may be more helpful. Gwen Gale (talk) 11:04, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of South Melbourne Town Hall[edit]

Hello Biatch, this is a message from an automated bot to inform you that the page you created on September 29 2006, South Melbourne Town Hall, has been marked for speedy deletion by User:Zoomzoom99 (page has mainspace links, and 19 edits). This has been done because the page is either pure vandalism or a blatant hoax (see CSD).

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 05:16, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Block Place, Melbourne[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Block Place, Melbourne has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

A search for references finds a few published adddresses on block place in melbourne, but nothing indicating the street it's self is notable. Nothing in the article indicates notability of the street. Fails WP:N and WP:V

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 {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

October 2010[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Albert Park, Victoria. Doing so helps everyone to understand the intention of your edit (and prevents legitimate edits from being mistaken for vandalism). It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. Oore (talk) 04:44, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

I don't understand why you removed the gallery from that article. Oore (talk) 04:52, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Are you sure you're interpreting relevant policies correctly? Oore (talk) 05:15, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Absolutely I am. Because I have been pulled up on it by numerous article reviewers before and educated on what makes good use of images in articles. Here is the relevant section of the policy:
"use of galleries may be appropriate in Wikipedia articles where a collection of images can illustrate aspects of a subject that cannot be easily or adequately described by text or individual images. The images in the gallery collectively must have encyclopedic value and add to the reader's understanding of the subject. Images in a gallery should be suitably captioned to explain their relevance both to the article subject and to the theme of the gallery, and the gallery should be appropriately titled (unless the theme of the gallery is clear from the context of the article)"
There is no way the article in question complies with this in its current format which is just a section called "Gallery" with a bunch of Flickr like shots. I have added a Commons Category link. You should correctly categorise these images if you want them to be available for this subject. --Biatch (talk) 05:20, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
The commons link only has one image, so I think it's significantly less helpful as a visual aid for readers. Regardless, since you're sure of your edit, I yield to you. Oore (talk) 05:35, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
As mentioned, lets work together to classify as many of the commons images to create a proper Albert Park gallery. Cheers--Biatch (talk) 05:39, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

No problem. But for some reason I can't get it to work on Sebastopol, Victoria. --Biatch (talk) 12:58, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
If they already show a map of the state, don't add long and lat, because they're already in there. If they're in there in the degrees-minutes-second format and you add them in the decimal format, you confuse the system. Well, that's my guess, and it's how I fixed them. —Felix the Cassowary 13:25, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Files missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media files you uploaded as:

are missing a description and/or other details on their image description pages. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors make better use of the images, and they will be more informative to readers.

If the information is not provided, the images may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

If you have any questions, please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Theo's Little Bot (error?) 09:20, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Ballarat[edit]

Thanks for correcting that article. It looks good now. But it might have been nice if you had added an Edit summary, rather than allowing the system to use its standard one, implying that I was wrong. HiLo48 (talk) 23:27, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Anthony Corrie[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 Anthony Corrie requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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. Nasnema  Chat  22:47, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Global account[edit]

Hi Biatch! As a Steward I'm involved in the upcoming unification of all accounts organized by the Wikimedia Foundation (see m:Single User Login finalisation announcement). By looking at your account, I realized that you don't have a global account yet.

If you have any problems with doing that or further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me on my talk page. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 10:37, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Block Arcade, Melbourne[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 Block Arcade, Melbourne requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from http://theblock.com.au/history/#fb0=5. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

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 "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.
