Foreign troops in New Zealand wars[edit]

Hi Djapa, I noticed your query at the New Zealand wars re the use of the RNSW Regiment and Victorian troops. I recall only the use of British troops apart from the later use of settler militia, Forest Rangers, Armed Constabulary, kupapa etc, but you may be right. There is no mention in that article of NSW or Victorian troops though. In which of the NZ wars in particular were Australian troops used? That may need to be added to the relevant articles.

Just another thought: the Royal New South Wales Regiment article on Wikipedia says this regiment was formed in 1960. The oldest of the battalions that were drawn into it was formed about 1860, but I can find nothing to suggest they served in New Zealand. Victorians were lured from the goldfields to fight in New Zealand, but not in any Victorian/Australian outfit: they were encouraged to migrate as military settlers, fight if called on and would be rewarded with a grant of land provided under the 1863 land confiscation legislation. If you're able to clarify which Australian regiment was sent to New Zealand though, I'd be grateful. BlackCab (talk) 10:39, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Invitation to Adelaide Wikipedia Users Group meetings[edit]

Riverside Precinct Adelaide
Edit-a-thon

Next: T.B.A.
Last: 6 July 2014
This box: view  talk  edit

Hi, in case you're not already aware of it, a group of Adelaide Wikipedians has been meeting on a monthly basis since April, with the aim of improving the scope and quality of articles on South Australian topics. We meet at UniSA's City West campus, and our 23 July meeting will have a guest speaker from the National Trust of SA.

This coming Sunday, 6 July, we will be holding our first Edit-a-thon. This will be an opportunity for new editors to come and learn either basic or more advanced editing from very experienced wikipedians, so if you know anyone who would like to get some practice, please let them know - and beginners will be very welcome. Cheers, Bahudhara (talk) 04:48, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

I've removed mine, will you do the same or keep it as a memento? Timeshift (talk) 23:56, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
