NZ general election 1975[edit]

Re the NZ general election articles; the Waitakere electorate was replaced by Henderson (with Martyn Finlay as MP) for 1969, 1972 & 1975 (see Norton pages 375 & 376). Hence I have removed the references to Waitakere in the article on the 1975 general election. Hugo999 (talk) 10:27, 10 May 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.

Tamaki by-election 1992[edit]

Hi. I have been conducting research on OECD politics. As part of my research, I obtained elections data for the Tamaki by-election in 1992 directly from the NZ Electoral Commission. I have added these results to your article. I thought you may have been interested, so I figured I'd drop you a note on your talk page. Please feel free to clean up my templating work, and if you do manage to find the given names of the candidates for which I had only family names, that'd be great. Cheers. 2607:F010:2E9:1:9CD0:A41F:2317:3F4C (talk) 16:48, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Awesome; thank you. Good work! Schwede66 18:00, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

New Challenge for Oceania and Australia[edit]

Hi, Wikipedia:WikiProject Oceania/The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Australia/The 5000 Challenge are up and running based on Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge which has currently produced over 2300 article improvements and creations. The Australia challenge would feed into the wider region one and potentially New Zealand could have a smaller challenge too. The main goal is content improvement, tackling stale old stubs and important content and improving sourcing/making more consistent but new articles are also welcome if sourced. I understand that this is a big goal for regular editors, especially being summertime where you are, but if you'd like to see large scale quality improvements happening for Oceania and Australia like The Africa Destubathon, which has produced over 1700 articles in 5 weeks, sign up on the page. The idea will be an ongoing national editathon/challenge for the region but fuelled by a series of contests to really get articles on every province and subject mass improved. The Africa contest scaled worldwide would naturally provide great benefits to Oceania countries, particularly Australia and attract new editors. I would like some support from existing editors here to get the Challenges off to a start with some articles to make doing a Destubathon worthwhile and potentially bring about hundreds of improvements in a few weeks through a contest!
