Welcome to Wikipedia![edit]

Hello Braue, welcome to Wikipedia!

Here are some tips:

If you feel a change is needed, feel free to make it yourself! Wikipedia is a wiki, so anyone (yourself included) can edit any article by following the Edit this page link. Wikipedia convention is to be bold and not be afraid of making mistakes. If you're not sure how editing works, have a look at How to edit a page, or try out the Sandbox to test your editing skills.

If, for some reason, you are unable to fix a problem yourself, feel free to ask someone else to do it. Wikipedia has a vibrant community of contributors who have a wide range of skills and specialties, and many of them would be glad to help. As well as the wiki community pages there are IRC Channels, where you are more than welcome to ask for assistance.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on my talk page. Thanks, Alphax τεχ 16:32, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)

President Kirby[edit]

Why do you say that Kirby was never president of the SRC? I say that he was, citing this and especially this after two seconds on google. If you agree, can you restore the entry in the table?--SilasM 16:38, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, I guess you were right. I was under the impression that, while being very involved in the SRC, he hadn't been President, but you're right. I'll fix it up. Braue 22:31, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Christian Democrats[edit]

Hi Ben, thought you might be interested in a current edit war over at Talk:Christian_Democratic_Party_(Australia). When it dies down I might add a section on CDP-Green relations as this does seem to be a major concern of the CDP in the NSW-LC. Can you tell me if anything resulted from Nile's 'Good news for paedophiles' ad? I assume there was a complaint to the AEC, at least. Nick 17:03, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

Template:Australian federal electorates[edit]

I notice you've been adding this template to articles on federal electorates, and I was thinking that a template might not be the best way to go here. The template fills a whole screen at 1024x768, I'd hate to think how big it looks at a lower resolution. Also, a template should usually be finished before you start adding it to articles. Perhaps you should consider making a smaller template, or perhaps one for each state. The people at WikiProject Australian politics (which I see you've joined, welcome!) would have some good ideas about this. --bainer (talk) 22:29, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your contributions to the 2004 Australian Greens candidates article[edit]

Thanks for your contributions to and help with this article. It is now complete with information for all AG candidates. Peter C Talk! 20:49, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

I'm also interested in posting the names of Senate candidates when I get around to it. It shouldn't take up much space. Braue 23:56, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

anti pope[edit]

Hi.

You might be aware that there has been some contention around the use of userboxes. There has also been a new speedy deletion criterion added with regard to templates.

A box you are using, Template:User Antipope was recently tagged as such. I've removed the tag, but would ask that you {{subst:}} the template. You may also wish to contribute to Wikipedia:WikiProject Userboxes if you are not already.

Hi Braue[edit]

Nice talking to you today. I'll be exploring all the good stuff you've been working on. -- Newhoggy | Talk 11:06, 11 February 2006 (UTC)

Greens MPs[edit]

I don't think there's quite so many that we need to cap it at a particular number - we'd only need to add a handful more and we'd have a complete list of MPs by time served (which IMHO would be more useful). Ambi 02:25, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Happy Birthday![edit]

Gabe-birthday-part.jpg Have a happy happy birthday! -- Newhoggy | Talk 10:00, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Protecting your userboxes[edit]

Because of the current campaign against userboxes, it's pretty likely that many of your boxes are going to get deleted from their template space soon (especially your Flying Spaghetti Monsterism box, but in general, any boxes that could be considered to express a point of view someone might disagree with). These templates could very possibly be deleted in the next week or two. In fact, I see your "anti-pope" box is already tagged for deletion. The best (and really, only) way to protect those userboxes is to perform a "substitute" command on each one of them, which will put the code directly into your page, instead of calling on the template every time your page is loaded. That way, when the template is deleted, it has no effect on the code resident on your page.

In order to do this, go into your user page, and wherever you have a template, insert "subst" inside the brackets. So,

{{template name}} becomes {{subst:template name}}

and your userboxes will all take up residence on your page. Sometimes this makes the formatting funky, and will require some tweaking in the code to restore the layout of your boxes as they were before. If you have any questions about this, please drop me a line. Regards, JDoorjam Talk 23:21, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

Titles in electorates[edit]

Hi,

Would you like to give feedback on the use of titles in electorates?

Australian Greens, a category of our own[edit]

Hi Ben, you are probably interesting in joining Category:Australian Greens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Australian_Greens), which is a rather lonely place at the moment ;). Grumpyyoungman01 06:48, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Greens Articles for Deletion[edit]

Do you have an opinion on this: Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/John_Kaye?

We seem to be reaching a consensus on keeping John Kaye and David Risstrom but there is mixed support for Jenny Leong (personally, I don't think Jenny needs a page).

Just thought you might like to have your say, if you hadn't already seen it. Nick 14:06, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Re:Funding agreements in the VSU article.[edit]

Thanks for pointing that out - the SRC has pdfs of past issues, so to meet verifiability requirements, especially for such a contentious issue, we should link to the pdf of the relevant issue. However, that still doesn't answer the question of the truth of the statement with regards to the other universities. enochlau (talk) 01:17, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Userbox[edit]

Not sure if you're interested but I copied the old Australian Greens userbox template into User:Orderinchaos78/Userboxes/User Aus GRN - if you want to use it, feel free. Orderinchaos78 05:41, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

By-election[edit]

Thanks for correcting that error - is there anything else I might be able to improve in the article? (seeing as you obviously know more about it than me) Rebecca 11:54, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

NUS[edit]

Not that I care either way, but why is it okay for you to call camden "princess" and yet not for whoever it was to call Chuk "monobrow"? LibStu 09:23, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

If there is a reference to Camden as "princess" then it should probably be deleted. Ben Raue (Talk) 23:00, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Independents (Australian NUS faction)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Independents (Australian NUS faction). We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Independents (Australian NUS faction). Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:04, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Invitation[edit]

There is a backstage pass coming up to be followed by an editathon in the State Library of New South Wales on 23 November. This is the first time that an Australian cultural institution has opened its doors to us in this way and will be a special opportunity because the Library is providing: one of its best rooms; its expert curators (along with their expertise and their white gloves); a newly launched website (containing new resources); and of course, items from its collection (including rare and usually unavailable material) which we can look at, learn from, and use, to improve WP articles. For example, on the chosen topic (Australia and WWI), the Library holds many diaries and manuscripts from the period.

As you can see from the Library's project page, they have connected this editathon with their own work. They have already set out a wide range of resources to make things easier for us. Please sign up on the editathon project page if you can participate either online or in person with other Wikipedians. Hope to see you there! Lankiveil (speak to me) 07:14, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
