Julie Dowling[edit]

Hello, I think the new Julie Dowling disambiguation page you made is probably fair enough, but would I be stepping on any toes if I created a quick stub article to fill out the red link, or would you mind doing that? I don't know anything about art, obviously, but This ref seems like a good start. Having a disambiguation page with only one blu link is not a good look. Graham87 02:16, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

@Graham87: go for I ran out of time last night at sons wedding today wont get to it until tonight Gnangarra 03:04, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Notice of noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. MPS1992 (talk) 21:56, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

Windschuttle's work "Fabrication of Aboriginal History" has been rigorously rebuffed and resoundingly discredited since it was published. The article is subject a lot of subtle IP vandalism and racial abuse, it has been on pending changes for a long time, this is nothing new. There is no abuse of rollback, there is no conspiracy, I made one revert of an unverifiable edit apparently sourced to a controversial yet discredited source about living people add to that two other cherry picked reverts from the last 6 months of some 20 odd IP edits many of which have also been reverted, voila we have practical demonstration of Fake news in the making Gnangarra 00:00, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

April 2018 Milhist Backlog Drive[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout April 2018 the Military history Wikiproject is running its annual backlog elimination drive. This will focus on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • adding or improving listed resources on Milhist's task force pages
  • updating the open tasks template on Milhist's task force pages
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the scope of military history will be considered eligible. This year, the Military history project would like to extend a specific welcome to members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, and we would like to encourage all participants to consider working on helping to improve our coverage of women in the military. This is not the sole focus of the edit-a-thon, though, and there are aspects that hopefully will appeal to pretty much everyone.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 April and runs until 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2018. Those interested in participating can sign up here.

Jigal - mother-in-law[edit]

Hi @Gnangarra: someone suggested you might be able to help. The article Cochlospermum fraseri talks about the mother-in-law tree. I am trying to pin down the language/languages/language-group in which jigal is mother-in-law, Clearly some mob from the Kimberley. But how wide is the usage and is there documentation?? Cheers, and thanks, MargaretRDonald (talk) 18:41, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

@MargaretRDonald: the mother in law tree is Lysiphyllum cunninghamii the Goolarabooloo and Djibarr Djibarr people which are both part of the language group Nyulnyulan languages are from the broome area, Western Kimberley where it appears to be in use. I'd start with contacting the Language/Indigenous centres in Broome as the most likely origin maybe Kununurra to see if its used further east, you may also find it spelt djigal or tjigal in language lists. Gnangarra 00:34, 5 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the correction of my carelessness. And more importantly, thanks for the help. I did try some aboriginal websites, but the ones I managed to find were so under-resourced that there were no contact details... MargaretRDonald (talk) 02:05, 5 June 2018 (UTC)
My email to yawuru@yawuru.org.au

Dear someone at the aboriginal language centre,

I have been editing the wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lysiphyllum_cunninghamii which is locally (how local?) called the jigal or mother-in-law tree. I was hoping you might point me to some written resource (either on the web or as a published paper document) which indicates which language groups use this word for mother-in-law, and if there are other aboriginal names for the tree (documented somewhere) I would be most grateful for the information.

(If you check out the article you'll see what level of information is necessary....)

MargaretRDonald (talk) 02:23, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

I was slowly moving towards that conclusion myself. You're dead right. --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 03:21, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

Vandal[edit]

Hey there – thanks for your help so far. That's likely the same sockpuppet that's been harassing me for a while. Are you able to move my user/talk pages back properly and delete the redirects, or was that just a temporary move? My username doesn't have a space in it – thanks. 4TheWynne(talk)(contribs) 12:45, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
