Sources for Greg Hall[edit]

Hello, good work on Greg Hall, and thanks for the contribution. However, you did not provide any references or sources in the article. Keeping Wikipedia accurate and verifiable is very important, and as you might be aware there is currently a push to encourage editors to cite the sources they used when adding content. Can you list in the article any websites, books, or other sources that will allow people to verify the content in Greg Hall? You can simply add links, or see WP:CITET for different citation methods. Thanks!  BRIAN0918  13:37, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

Tas electorates[edit]

Kyle, I hate to discourage your editing, but I have reverted your additions to the five Tasmanian federal electorate articles. The state electorates of the same names are different entities and should have separate articles. I suggest:

Regards Adam 10:46, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

Kyle, I think the way you have done the Franklin article is excellent. I see by the way we have very similar interests (except perhaps river systems). Perhaps we should start Labor Wikipedians. Adam 12:35, 8 December 2005 (UTC)


Hello, thanks for uploading Image:Ivan_dean.jpg. Unfortunately images restricted to non-commercial use only are no longer permitted on Wikipedia. As a result, this image is likely to be deleted shortly. If you can find a better image which can be used for commercial purposes, please feel free to upload it to replace it. Thanks! --David Johnson [T|C] 19:02, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Dealing with vandalism[edit]

Thanks for spotting and reverting the vandalism on José de San Martín. This anonymous user in particular has commited vandalic acts in the past. In cases like this, if you have the time, leave a warning in the vandal's talk page (see Wikipedia:Vandalism for details). This serves to let him/her know how close s/he to being blocked, and for administrators to assess her/his behaviour at a glance. Cheers! --Pablo D. Flores (Talk) 17:21, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

I got to go sorry—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 17:49, 22 December 2005

Lin Thorp[edit]

I'm assuming that this edit was meant to refer to 2005 (or else I've mysteriously lost a few months!). Ambi 05:26, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

Yes, (thanks if you have changed it). I was just writing in another article "will face election in 2006". It was still on my brain. Time doesnt fly that fast... --Kyle sb 16:29, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Sir_John_William_Evans.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Sir_John_William_Evans.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator.

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you have questions about copyright tagging of images, post on Wikipedia talk:Image copyright tags or User talk:Carnildo/images. 17:50, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

Hi Kyle[edit]

Greetings, I'm not a 100% sure, but I think the 3 you removed, from the Paul Hindenburg article, is referencing the quotes from the book at the very bottom of the article. How's the weather in Tasmania? Dr. Dan 20:01, 3 March 2006 (UTC) p.s. If I'm correct, will you replace it, or should I?

Well I thought that (3) might reference something, like a quote. However I couldn't see any evidence of that and it wasn't in brackets, linked or anything. You can change it, if it's not supposed to be there. The weather in Tasmania is muggy and hot today, about 26 degrees:P. Kyle sb 07:12, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

Good Work[edit]

Well done on the 2006 Tassie election article. Maustrauser 11:38, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Tasmanian Election[edit]

Kyle, I am not sure if this comment should just be added to my talk page, or duplicated on yours . . .

Regarding my recent edits to Tasmanian legislative election, 2006 I removed that statement 'The Liberals gained a 4.5% swing, despite making no real gains in the election' because the Liberals did make a "real gain" in the election - their primary vote increase. The amount of swing they got is specified elsewhere in the sentence "The Liberal primary vote rose by 4.5% to 32%." so it did not need to be stated twice. Also, speculation about them possibly picking up a seat (slim chance) could conflict with the "no real gain statement". Peter C Talk! 06:27, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Kyle, your edits on this article are good. Keep up the good work. Peter C Talk! 10:15, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

Map of Lyons[edit]

Looks fine to me. Are we going to hold our three seats in Franklin? Adam 07:11, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Done. Ambi 23:23, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Opposition Leaders[edit]

It's a work in progress. I was about to run out of laptop battery, so I had to save then or I'd lose it. I'm just about finished the list now - I'll have it posted in a couple of minutes. Ambi 06:32, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Done now. I just need to disambiguate the names and add a bit about the position. :) Ambi 06:36, 1 April 2006 (UTC)


I'm sorry Kyle; that was my understanding of blocking policy as well. If you can specify your IP I can unblock you. Unfortunately when an IP is blocked there can be collateral damage such as this; as it is meant to prevent an anon from circumventing the block by creating/editing from accounts. - RoyBoy 800 06:16, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Hello, Kyle sb. An automated process has found and removed an image or media file tagged as nonfree media, and thus is being used under fair use that was in your userspace. The image (Image:VandalProof icon.jpg) was found at the following location: User talk:Kyle sb. This image or media was attempted to be removed per criterion number 9 of our non-free content policy.

Replaceable fair use Image:William_Cox_Governor.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:William_Cox_Governor.jpg. I noticed the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast 19:09, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Kyle sb! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 2,408 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

File source problem with File:Thomas Chapman Tas.jpg[edit]


Thank you for uploading File:Thomas Chapman Tas.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 09:49, 2 May 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 09:49, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Saturday lottery ticket Tasmania.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Saturday lottery ticket Tasmania.JPG. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 18:09, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
