I finally got around to doing another copyedit of the geology and recreation sections. You think they're FA material now? --Jakob (talk) 15:07, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Florence Fuller ancestry[edit]

Hello. Great work with her article, though I noticed, when reading it while it was TFA, that her parentage is somewhat obscure in published records. I have an ancestry.com subscription and so have done some searching. I have compiled a list of raw references relating to her and her parents on one of my sub-pages, here. As far as I see it, as a whole, these records clarify details about her parentage, including her illusive maternal side. It's up to you what you do with all this, I thought I should let you know that it's there.

I should point out two things: firstly, I've done this research on the assumption that John Hobson Fuller is definitely her father, as the article states; secondly, I have not been able to find her birth record for certain - she was presumably born in the UK in about 1867, but I couldn't find a Florence Ada Fuller in the indexes and Florence A. Fuller returns several possible results, with Florence Fuller returning even more. Without ordering the certificates themselves, I cannot tell from the indexes which is the right one.

If you have any queries, do let me know. Thanks, and, once again, great work, -Noswall59 (talk) 09:19, 6 August 2014 (UTC).

Hello Noswal, that is marvellous, thank you. There's one thing you've missed, and one thing you might want to look at. What you missed is: she was born in South Africa (according to the sources), so I'm not surprised you couldn't find a UK birth record. The thing you might want to look at are my notes on the article talk page about her family. In particular, it seems her "uncle" who taught her in Australia was not an uncle as we would use the term, but a cousin once removed or somesuch. However none of the published sources say this, so i can't include it in the Wikipedia article. Maybe we should collaborate to write something and publish it in a reliable source, so we can then reference it here?! hamiltonstone (talk) 23:36, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
Ah well, I suppose it makes sense that I can't find her in the UK then! It appears that South Africa did not have compulsory civil registration before 1895 in the Cape Colony, and what other records there were seem to be rather illusive on-line. As for the uncle situation, I will endeavour to find out more. A preliminary search shows that an Ellen Dowling died in 1924 in Australia aged 85 and was the daughter of Louisa's parents, Joshua Vines and Hannah Cook. I wonder if she married Robert Hawker Dowling or a close relative of his (brother perhaps)? That would kind of make him an uncle of sorts. If I can find out, then I can't see there being any harm adding a foot-note to clarify the exact relationship between them. As I say, I will continue to do some digging and add any sources I find once I've worked out what's going on. I will be busy over the next few days, but hopefully I will get this all done before the start of next week. Thank you for comments, -Noswall59 (talk) 10:00, 7 August 2014 (UTC).
This diagram shows the relationships.
Okay, I have finished researching the Dowling link. Basically, Florence's mother Louisa was the daughter of Joshua Vines and Hannah Cook. They had a number of other children, before emigrating to Australia in 1855. They had, however, left Louisa behind for some reason and she obviously went on to marry Mr Fuller. With Joshua and Hannah came three of their daughters, Jane, Mary Ann and Ellen, and a son, Caleb. Ellen married Benjamin Dowling in 1857. He was born in 1822, the son of Rev. Henry Dowling, sometime minister at Launceston, and his wife Elizabeth Darke. As his ADB entry shows (you may already know), this Henry was also the father of Robert Hawker Dowling, making Benjamin his brother. The ADB article mentions most of the other children, but not Benjamin; however there is no doubt that Henry and Elizabeth had a son called Benjamin and there is a marriage notice showing him marrying Ellen Vines. Anyway, I've also been doing some digging on the Vines, which might be interesting. I've added it all to my sub-page, with a new section for the new research notes. I will probably look at the Fullers at some point too. Thanks, -Noswall59 (talk) 18:36, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Good articles Future GAN Backlog Drive[edit]

Hello everyone! Hope you've all been having a great summer!

TheQ Editor recently proposed the idea of having another Backlog Drive in either September/October or November/December of this year. For those of you who have participated in the past two drives you know I was the one who organized them, however, come September, this will be my most important year in school so I will not be able to coordinate this drive (if it happens). TheQ Editor has volunteered to be a coordinator for the drive. If any of you would like to co-coordinator, please notify TheQ Editor on his talk page.

If you would be interested in participating in a Backlog Drive sometime before the end of this year, please notify TheQ Editor. Also, make sure to specify what month(s) work best for you.

At the time this message was sent out, the backlog was at 520 nominations. Since May, the backlog has been steadily increasing and we are currently near an all time high. Even though the backlog will not disappear over one drive, this drive can lead to several others which will (hopefully) lead to the day where there is no longer a backlog.

As always, the more participants, the better, and everyone is encouraged to participate!

GA Cup[edit]

Hello everyone! We hope you have all been having a great summer!

As we all know, the recent GAN Backlog Drives have not had any big impact on the backlog. Because of that, me (Dom497), Figureskatingfan, and TheQ Editor have worked on an idea that could possibly finally put a dent into the massive backlog. Now, I will admit, the idea isn't entirely ours as we have took the general idea of the WikiCup and brought it over to WikiProject Good Articles. But anyways, here's what we have in mind:

For all of you that do not know what the WikiCup is, it is an annual competition between several editors to see who can get the most Good Articles, Featured Article's, Did You Know's, etc. Based of this, we propose to you the GA Cup. This competition will only focus on reviewing Good articles.

For more info on the proposal, click here. As a FYI, the proposal page is not what the final product will look like (if you do go ahead with this idea). It will look very similar to WikiCup's page(s).

The discussion for the proposal will take place here. Please let us know if you are interested, have any concerns, things to consider, etc.

--Dom497, Figureskatingfan, and TheQ Editor

"Disruptive editing"?[edit]

Hi Hamiltonstone – I was surprised to log on today and see your note accusing me of "disruptive editing". In the several years I've logged on here, I've never done so with the intention of editing. However, when I've seen places where it seemed I could contribute, I've made changes I felt were appropriate and helpful... [remainder of hurt, self-pitying message deleted by author]AndyFielding (talk) 23:57, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi Andy. It must have been a bug. Your edits kept inserting the text of the article on Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure into the Disambig page Bill, and continued to do so after I had reverted (which was why i posted the warning notice). Sorry you were caught out by a glitch. Best wishes, hamiltonstone (talk) 04:54, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, H. Today I realized it must've been a bug too, as I'd never edited the page the message referred to. (I thought it was about the various edits I'd done that day.) It should've also been obvious the message was automated, not personal. ¶ Over the years I'd been thinking, "Maybe someone will eventually notice my contributions and give me a little pat on the back or something"—then this.  :?O Anyway, my faith in WP is restored. – AndyFielding (talk) 21:11, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Good Articles - GA Cup[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup
Symbol support vote.svg

WikiProject Good articles is holding a new competition, the GA Cup, from October 1, 2014 - March 28, 2015. The Cup will be based on reviewing Good article nominations; for each review, points will be awarded with bonuses for older nominations, longer articles and comprehensive reviews. All participants will start off in one group and the highest scoring participants will go through to the second round. At the moment six rounds are planned, but this may change based on participant numbers.

Some of you may ask: what is the purpose for a competition of this type? Currently, there is a backlog of about 500 unreviewed Good article nominations, almost an all time high. It is our hope that we can decrease the backlog in a fun way, through friendly competition.

Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors! Sign-ups will be open until October 15, 2014 so sign-up now!

If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the four judges.

Cheers from NickGibson3900, Dom497, TheQ Editor and Figureskatingfan.

Yeah, i feel the prose for Acacia is a bit off the boil, though i can't always pin it down. I've had a go at parts, but can't tackle the whole of it today. See how you go, i'll try and get back. cheers, hamiltonstone (talk) 12:22, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi![edit]

Re Steve Dodd, I don't know to which edits you are referring specifically. Any edits I made I did to improve the article but I am always willing to admit when I make a mistake. The article has been edited since then by other editors, so I guess whatever remains as of this point is unobjectionable. Unless you can point to something specific. Thanks for your attention.

A summary of a Featured Article you nominated at WP:FAC will appear on the Main Page soon.

I'd appreciate it if you could you check the article one more time before its day on the Main Page. - Dank (push to talk) 20:33, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

No, that looks excellent, thank you Dank. hamiltonstone (talk) 09:28, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
Great, thanks. One question: Contemporary Art Society (Australia) seems to give a different name and date for the organization than you do. - Dank (push to talk) 11:46, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
Melbourne Contemporary Artists are different to the Contemporary Art Society - the former seceded from the latter after a disagreement, i think two years after the latter was originally created (ie. in 1940). Bell led both the creation of the new organisation, and the secession. Does that address your concern? hamiltonstone (talk) 05:04, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Hello from the team at Featured article review![edit]

Cscr-featured.svg

We are preparing to take a closer look at Featured articles promoted in 2004–2010 that may need a review. We started with a script-compiled list of older FAs that have not had a recent formal review. The next step is to prune the list by removing articles that are still actively maintained, up-to-date, and believed to meet current standards. We know that many of you personally maintain articles that you nominated, so we'd appreciate your help in winnowing the list where appropriate.

Please take a look at the sandbox list, check over the FAs listed by your name, and indicate on the sandbox talk page your assessment of their current status. Likewise, if you have taken on the maintenance of any listed FAs that were originally nominated by a departed editor, please indicate their status. BLPs should be given especially careful consideration.

Thanks for your help! SandyGeorgia (Talk) 01:01, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

Please respond at Wikipedia talk:Unreviewed featured articles/sandbox#Pinging next round; thanks! SandyGeorgia (Talk) 01:01, 5 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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 16:11, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
