About your request for adminship[edit]

Greetings! I see you've started a request to become an administrator at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/ContrillionAU. Frankly, it is extremely unlikely that you will be granted administrator privileges so early in your time on Wikipedia. Familiarity with Wikipedia guidelines is demonstrated by experience, and there's just no baseline for you yet.

Might I humbly suggest you withdraw the request by placing {{db-author}} at the top of the page? Then, spend some time (several months, at the least) editing articles, improving sources, categorizing, and generally working to improve Wikipedia. Then, with a baseline in place, you may be better suited to place a request for adminship—and may even have other users willing to nominate you. —C.Fred (talk) 04:34, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/ContrillionAU[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Hi ContrillionAU. I noticed you created a Requests for Adminship page some time ago; I was wondering as to what the status of that request might be. I think it's fair to warn you that new users are rarely successful at RfA and that the Wikipedia editing community sets very high standards for editors running for adminship. That being said, I strongly urge you to read WP:GRFA, User:Davidwr/Administration is not for new users, and WP:NOTNOW, and ask you to reconsider whether you really do wish to go through with your candidacy; please understand that you stand very little to no chance of passing RfA at this point and that you are strongly discouraged from running for adminship. If you are still intent on running for adminship with that RfA and are absolutely positive this is what you want, please do let me know; otherwise, I'll go ahead and delete the RfA page for you in about a week or so from today. Regards, FASTILY (TALK) 05:12, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Addition of Mount Buller, Victoria to list of Good articles at Wikipedia:WikiProject Mountains[edit]

Hi, I reverted your edit adding Mount Buller, Victoria to a list of Good articles at Wikipedia:WikiProject Mountains. There is a process for promoting articles to GA status, which is outlined at WP:GAN. Might I suggest that you familiarise yourself with the contents of Wikipedia:Welcoming committee/Welcome to Wikipedia and Wikipedia:Five pillars. Cheers. Jezhotwells (talk) 12:05, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

In addition, I reverted your removal of the stub class classification from Talk:Lake Mokoan. Please familiarise yourself with Wikipedia guidelines and policies before rushing around changing things. Also, please remember to provide an edit summary, if you edit a page. Jezhotwells (talk) 12:13, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
Further, I have removed Bass Strait, Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean from the FA and GA lists at the Oceans project. Please desist from this, and if there are other such edits that I have not noticed, please revert yourself. Jezhotwells (talk) 12:19, 15 August 2010 (UTC)


I can see that you are very enthusiastic haveing joined several dozen projects and now started up a new one yourself. have you read any of the guidelines on this? Did you run it through Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals? Did you consider asking Wikipedia:Australian Wikipedians' notice board? or considering the existence of Wikipedia:WikiProject Victoria. BTW, the last time I lloked at an atlas Victoria was in the South East of Australia. I am going to start a thread about this at WP Australia. I think you had better learn to communicate with other editors and follow Wikipedia policies and guidleines. 12:51, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Nintendo task force membership update[edit]

It's that time again to update membership status with the Nintendo task force, which we periodically do to keep our membership up-to-date.

All participants have been placed on an "Inactive participants" list. To confirm that you're still a member of the Nintendo task force, simply go to Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Nintendo#Members and move your name from the "Inactive participants" list to the bottom of the "Active participants" list. If you are no longer an active member in the task force, you may simply remove your name altogether. On 23 December, all entries under the "Inactive participants" list will be removed. Hopefully you can stay with us and continue to work on Nintendo-related articles. Regards, MuZemike delivered by MuZebot 17:27, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 12[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Benalla, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page ANZ (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

June 2012[edit]

Thanks for contributing new article Lake Benalla. However, one of Wikipedia's core policies is that material must be verifiable, by being clearly attributed to reliable sources. Please help by adding more sources to the article you created, and/or by clarifying how the sources already given support the material (see here for how to do inline referencing). Many thanks! PS If you need any help, you can look at Help:Contents/Editing Wikipedia or ask at Wikipedia:New contributors' help page, or just ask me. Best regards, Cindy(talk to me) 01:24, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
