Dear LauraineCrafts,

Thanks for the comments you left on my page. Obviously I don't have any problems with the accuracy of what you say but, as I said, I do feel that there are too many details for a general history such as the 1859-1900 History, eg. the fact that the event happened during the club's second year is superfluous. I repeat my suggestion that you start a page on Mornington F.C. and transfer the details to the new page leaving the bare facts on the 1859-1900 page.

That being said, in the general scheme of things, I don't regard this as a major issue. It's up to you what you do regarding the transfer, but I think my suggestion is logical.

Regards, Albert.

I have not played around with any of the modifications that you made to the History of Australian rules football in Victoria (1859-1900) page. However, as it is a general history, a summary of the Mornington event is really all that should be there. The full history of the drownings should be instered on a Mornington F.C. page. I note that there isn't a Mornington page yet, but you should consider starting one. Of course, the 1859-1900 History page already has a link to such a potential page.

Regards,

Your subject[edit]

It doesn't seem to have any coverage outside your article that I can see. It's an interesting concept, but I'm afraid you have made it up yourself. Wikipedia is not for publishing or promoting new ideas that haven't passed the test of notability WP:GNG with proof provided in reliable independent sources WP:RS. If you can provide proof that this is a known and widely discussed paradox (in circles above student bar level...), you are welcome to try again. You aren't one of the usual posters of this sort of material - you have a reasonable looking editing history over a few years - and if you have any queries, please feel free to ask or to appeal at WP:DRV. (I haven't lost one yet... Are you feeling lucky?) This just reminded me of an email I once received from a distribution arm of a multi-national corp. It contained the gem, 'If you haven't got internet access, please ring us on 01xxx xxxxxx.' I felt very tempted...) Peridon (talk) 17:46, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
