Disambiguation link notification for October 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Western Bulldogs, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Etihad Stadium. 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.

Sydney montage[edit]

I changed the montage because there's various issues with the current. We already have an image of Sydney Uni in the article body, there's no need to be repetitious, and the image of Darling Harbour is so nondescript it could literally be any city. There's no distinguishing feature about that particular image that conveys historical importance or even a landmark, and for that reason, I think Fort Denison is a more worthy addition. It's historic, it's a landmark, and it represents Sydney's very important Colonial past. If there's any issue with recognisability, then users can simply click the corresponding link in the caption.

Government images on Australia article[edit]

Hello, after your initial revert, I created a new section on the Australia talk page for this to be resolved, and noted as much in the edit note for my revert. You did not attempt to resolve the matter there, but instead reverted again. Please see that section so that the issue can be resolved. Thank you. - Lawarticles (talk) 11:32, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

Removal of images from Ned Kelly page[edit]

Hello HappyWaldo. Can you please stop arbitrarily removing mages from Ned Kelly page. Per WP:DR, can we try and reach a compromise? Instead of deleting images, why not make the improvements per WP:STACKING (Which is not a policy, but a guide). In regards to having 'too many images', can you point me to the policy that states that 34 is the limit for images in a page. Thank-you David.moreno72 09:30, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Addition of dispute to Third opinion.[edit]

Hi HappyWaldo, I have lodged our dispute at Third opinion. Thank-you David.moreno72 08:36, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

May 2017[edit]

Hello, I'm David.moreno72. I noticed that in this edit to Ned Kelly, you removed content without adequately explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry, the removed content has been restored. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. David.moreno72 08:54, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did with this edit to Ned Kelly, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you. David.moreno72 09:08, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did with this edit to Ned Kelly, you may be blocked from editing. David.moreno72 09:36, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you vandalize Wikipedia, as you did with this edit to Ned Kelly. David.moreno72 09:40, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Ned Kelly. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 10:01, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Ned Kelly[edit]

Please note that you came extremely close to being blocked for edit warring and violating 3RR on this article. If a content-related dispute occurs, you're expected to discuss the dispute on the article's talk page; do not edit war, please... even if you think (or "know") that you're right. And please be more careful next time ;-). ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 10:16, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines. You can find information about these at our welcome page which also provides further information about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia.

Removed perfectly valid image gallery. scope_creep (talk) 10:08, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Ettrick Bay[edit]

The article is brand new, can you stop trying to mess it up. It's brand new. I've reported you to Oshwah. If you still here, please go to WP:teahouse and look for a mentor. I could be one if you want. To edit an article which has been created, you go to the talk page, tell everybody else what you to do. All they editors agree on it, through a consensus and then the edit is made. This is policy document for this proces: Wikipedia:Consensus. Please read it. scope_creep (talk) 10:23, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

The images come from the commons. That the reason they are, ready for new articles to be added. scope_creep (talk) 10:48, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Australia[edit]

Sorry, I didn't mean to revert your changes to this article - the article got laggy and somehow it happened. My intention was to reinstore the section you removed. Please start a discussion on the article's talk page. Regards, Nick-D (talk) 07:20, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

About Waterfall, Strath Creek[edit]

Hi HappyWaldo,
I have started a little micro-stub about this painting. I notice you uploaded the image used in the article to Commons. If you are interested in that sort of thing - by which I mean DYKs, not Australian artworks - it might make a tidy little DYK, given that it has been called "iconic" and has been homaged in other artworks.

Wake in Fright[edit]

This section on Gary Bond in The Encyclopaedia of British Film lists Wake in Fright as a "UK/Australian" production (https://books.google.com.au/books?id=V7vPDQAAQBAJ&pg=RA1-PA1905&dq=wake+in+fright+1971+uk+production&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwix2-yeic_WAhXDUbwKHQvaDA0Q6AEILzAB#v=onepage&q=wake%20in%20fright%201971%20uk%20production&f=false), while the BFI lists it as an Australian-US-UK production. Histories of the production (http://www.sbs.com.au/movies/article/2009/06/01/making-wake-fright-part-one) indicate the involvement of Group W's London offices in production.

Thanks for your response - I'm happy to concede if you want, and I'll remove the two sources from the infobox for the time being. I'm actually working on a major overhaul of the article as a whole ATM, so if I find anything concrete of any British involvement, I'll let you know. PatTheMoron (talk) 12:14, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

Changes to Ned Kelly page[edit]

Hi HappyWaldo, I notice that you have been introducing errors and removing pictures from the Ned Kelly page. In regards to removing pictures, please respect the two previous RfC's for the addition of relevant images. If you wish to remove images, please start a RfC to obtain consensus. Thank you David.moreno72 07:30, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

October 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm David.moreno72. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Ned Kelly, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. David.moreno72 14:38, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did at Ned Kelly, without citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. David.moreno72 15:16, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Improper use of references[edit]

Hi HappyWaldo. I notice that you are still introducing unsourced and incorrect edits to the Ned Kelly page. I reviewed your source available at https://books.google.com.au/books?id=WhczfF4KdawC and nowhere does it state that while a teenager Ned led the 'Greta Mob'. May I remind you that Ned spent most of his later teenage years in jail. Yes he was still technically a teenager when he was released in 1874, six months early for good behaviour, for a total of two and a half years, not three, as you keep incorrectly stating, so you will need to provide a source that explicitly states that he was leading the 'Greta Mob' in 1874. I also notice that you keep reverting my good faith and correct edits. May i suggest that you read WP:ONLYREVERT. Thank you David.moreno72 01:17, 20 October 2017 (UTC)

Australian rules football reverts[edit]

Information icon Hello. This is a message to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions, such as the edit you made to Australian rules football, did not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines, because your reasons given were not legitimate. Also be aware of WP:OWN and that edits must be understandable for non-Australian readers .If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you may leave a message on my talk page.

Violation of WP:AGF and WP:ONLYREVERT and WP:V[edit]

Hi HappyWaldo. I've checked the reference for you edit to the Kelly page and I can't see the part that says he joined the Greta mob as a teenager. Can you please quote the section please, otherwise I will have to revert per WP:V and WP:FIES. Also why do you keep reverting my small addition of adding relative to 'thanks in part to the support of an extensive network of sympathisers.' Have you read the royal commission report? The family members provided much more support than the sympathisers? You need to actually read WP:ONLYREVERT and WP:OWN and WP:AGF as it is only you who is having any issues with my edits. I have already had to correct many of your edits, not for prose, which is subjective, but for actual historical errors. The edits that I make have all been historically correct, and so per WP:ONLYREVERT YOU CANNOT REVERT THEM, especially without an edit summary citing any wikipedia policy or guideline. just because you disagree with the prose. This is NOT YOUR private site, but a collaborative environment. A review of your talkpage is a litany of complaints and warnings from numerous editors about your hostility to other editors. THIS MUST STOP. David.moreno72 10:21, 20 October 2017 (UTC)
