response re Broken Hill, New South Wales[edit]

Hi Iain. Welcome to Wikipedia. I responded on User talk:ScottDavis#Broken Hill, but also here that I liked your expanded information, and did NOT mean to remove any references. Can you point to what I accidentally removed? Thanks. --Scott Davis Talk 23:19, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi from Iain Stuart[edit]

My interest is in Australian history, archaeology and landscapes. As an experiment I am trying to add a comprehensive section on mining history at Broken Hill, NSW, Australia, one of the worlds leading lead/zinc mines.

re Henry George Chauvel[edit]

Hi Iain. I just reverted some childish vandalism on the above, where I see you've done some work. There's a revision dated 02:22, May 2, 2007 which was lost in the revert, but I'm not sure if the info should go back in, and if so, where. It had originally been in the middle of a sentence. I wonder if you might have a look at it if you have time? Thanks. Struway 11:37, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Help!

{{helpme}}

I have created a page for a goldfield in New South Wales Mitchell's Creek Mitchells Creek and I wanted to add the grid coordinates like as has been done for a page I started on Sunny Corner, New South Wales. I tried copying and pasting and then ediding the cordinates but that didnt work. any help would be gratefully received.

IainS

See {{coord}}--you need to know the coordinates, so you would use the code like {{coord|44.112|-87.913|display=title}} to generate the coordinate. Of course, you need to replace the numbers with the correct coordinates. fetch·comms 01:02, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Historic Environment deletion[edit]

Hi Iain, would you like to add your comments to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Historic_Environment

Randykitty seems to be on a crusade on this despite dozens of other other articles on academic journals having far less evidence of notability.Garyvines (talk) 10:03, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Iain, if you are going to comment in the above deletion discussion, you might like to think carefully about how you do so. Like some others there, you've managed a lovely rant full of ad hominem commentary and personal attacks but you've not actually put together a coherent argument for keeping the article. Attacking the nominator will get you nowhere. AFDs are closed on the basis of consensus and strength of argument. Have a read of some of Wikipedia's notability guidelines - having done so, you might consider striking most of your first contribution, which will likely be ignored anyway.
