Networked Learning[edit]

Hi Leigh, I just dropped into the Networked learning page and did a few edits. Thanks for getting it going; hope to help and learn. Hopefully we can get it expanded and listed on other relevant Wikipedia pages and categories, etc.. Jtneill - Talk 12:17, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:MikeWilson.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:MikeWilson.jpg. Wikipedia gets hundreds of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 05:05, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

Edit counts[edit]

You may be interested in your edit count across all Wikimedia projects. Sincerely, -- Jtneill - Talk 09:14, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Your You Tube Videos[edit]

As you may be aware, YouTube has recently come in for criticism over it's handling of copyrighted works.

I note that you have a number of potentially interesting videos on You Tube that you link to from your user page.

Instead of supporting troubled proprietary sites, Why not support projects that value creative talent and assist in ensuring that a viewing public can enjoy and expand upon it?

Wikimedia Commons is one project that needs creative content (under licensing that lets people enjoy and expand upon it).

It would be much appreciated if you would consider migrating videos for which you are the copyright owner to 'open' formats like Ogg Theora, and moving them from 'failed' proprietary sites like YouTube to community sites like Wikimedia Commons, under an appropriate license.

Sfan00 IMG (talk) 16:58, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Sfan00.. I will do that.. to date I have been using Blip.tv and Internet Archive a lot more as they support Creative Commons Attribution licensing. I would like to load to Wikimedia Commons but for two things - it is not easy to author video to Ogg Theora, and a hope for a dual uploader like what Blip.tv has.. basically, when I upload to Blip, it offers me a check box where I tell it to copy over to Archive.org as well.. Now, if it had another check box for Wikimediacommons.. fantastic! But I spose Wikimediacommons isn't going to allow any old format coming over.. if only WMC would do the transcoding for us like Archive.org does --Leighblackall (talk) 09:29, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Otago Polytechnic logo.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Otago Polytechnic logo.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 06:23, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

RCC[edit]

Thanks for the invite to RCC. Unfortunately I'll be heading down to Melbourne that day so I won't be able to attend, but please keep me in the loop for future events! Confusing Manifestation(Say hi!) 03:05, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

No worries, I've added your name to the "not going, but keep me informed rego section. See you next time. Leighblackall (talk) 03:28, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Re: Your message (Aug 11) :O[edit]

Hi there, and my apologies for the exceptionally slow reply to your message on my talk page. I'd burned out of Wikipedia for several years, but I thought it'd be appropriate to at least respond to your (old) message since I'm now back on again. If there are any similar events coming up in the future, feel free to throw a link in my general direction!

Cheers, David

Will do David, we're working towards another event late January 2011. Will drop another message on your talk page. Leighblackall (talk) 08:15, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Invite[edit]

You may be interested to come to the Wikipedia celebration on 15 January in Canberra. see http://ten.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canberra . Graeme Bartlett (talk) 02:04, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

I'll be there. Thanks Graeme Leighblackall (talk) 10:30, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Jean Pain.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Jean Pain.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use 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 you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MGA73 (talk) 12:02, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up MGA73. I have pasted a copy of the email I received that gives permission from the copyright holder to use this image on Wikipedia. Leighblackall (talk) 10:29, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
You need to have the copyright holder (not you) submit the aforementioned e-mail via the WP:OTRS system for verification. Please do not remove the image deletion template until that OTRS ticket is confirmed. Skier Dude (talk) 04:39, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the clearer advice Skier Dude. I have forwarded the original permission email, that is included in the details of the image, to:
  • permissions-commons@wikimedia.org
  • date Mon, Jan 24, 2011 at 9:51 AM
  • subject Fwd: FW: Mother Earth News - Jean Pain image
I hope you can see that I'm trying to follow the process, and that we have permission to use the image. I notice the date for deletion is now! So I've left a message on the discussion page on the image, hopefully admins will see that.
Leighblackall (talk) 22:58, 23 January 2011 (UTC)
Don't worry if the image gets temporarily deleted: Once the OTRS ticket is received, an admin/sysop with OTRS access (not me) can restore the image. Skier Dude (talk) 17:22, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

University of Canberra article[edit]

All that information you put in? You really, really need to find citations for it. One of the reasons I stripped most of the article was because there were no citations for it and it ended up looking like a chaotic list. So yeah, if you get the time, can you please cite every idea you put in? --LauraHale (talk) 22:53, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

  • Which ideas do you mean? I created a section called Wikimedia Outreach, and listed events and activities with links out to the documentation of those events. As far as I can tell, such a list doesn't require citations.. its about as significant as an "external links" or "see also" section. No claims needing citations there as far as I can tell. Are you sure your not confusing where and when citations are required? Should we be talking about this on the actual page? Leighblackall (talk) 00:47, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Jean Pain.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Jean Pain.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Magog the Ogre (talk) 17:25, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

You're invited to the Canberra WikiMeetup on 20 November 2011[edit]

Hi! We're having a Canberra Wikimeetup on 20 November 2011 at Siren Bar in Gunghalin from 2pm to 4pm. It's most just a chance to chat with other local Wikipedians, get a chance to go a different sort of bar (which is reasonably kid friendly, serves real food, and has non-alcholic options), and, if you're interested, learning more about what Wikimedia Australia and local GLAM projects are happening. We'd love to see you and any Wikipedia/Wikimedia/wiki loving friends you have there. --LauraHale (talk) 07:15, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Hello Kelly, that image is a frame taken from a video shot by me. That video is on Youtube, as is described in the details for the image. That video on Youtube is licensed CC By, so I'm not clear as to why you're questioning the copyright. That said, it is no longer a useful image, and could be deleted if you have rights to do that.

Melbourne meetup and AGM[edit]

Hi Leigh, the meetup is scheduled for the old time of 11.00 am, but the AGM is at 4.00 pm. This makes no sense.

Class editing dental emergency[edit]

Hello, I noted your edit summary on the above page. Are you a professor teaching a class? Welcome. There are only a few dentists around on Wikipedia nowadays, and I am on holiday right now, but if you need any help please leave me a message and I will get back to you. Kind regards, Lesion (talk) 06:13, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Hello Lesion. I support academics at La Trobe University, and today I was taking a 3rd year group from the Bachelor of Oral Health degree, who's teacher is keen for them to try Wikipedia editing as an assignment. It is part of the wv:Evidence Based Oral Health Practice subject. Leighblackall (talk) 08:44, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Bollywood Veggies[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Bollywood Veggies requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content or organised event, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Dmol (talk) 20:13, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Feature – Ebola articles[edit]

Electron micrograph of an Ebola virus virion

During August we have translated Disease and it is now live in more than 60 different languages! To help us focus on African languages Rubric has donated a large number of articles in languages we haven't previously reached–so a shout out them, and Ian Henderson from Rubric who's joined us here at Wikipedia. We're very happy for our continued collaboration with both Rubric and Translators without Borders!

Just some of our over 60 translations:
New roles and guides!

At Wikimania there were so many enthusiastic people jumping at the chance to help out the Medical Translation Project, but unfortunately not all of them knew how to get started. That is why we've been spending considerable time writing and improving guides! They are finally live, and you can find them at our home-page!

New sign up page!

We're proud to announce a new sign up page at WP:MTSIGNUP! The old page was getting cluttered and didn't allow you to speficy a role. The new page should be easier to sign up to, and easier to navigate so that we can reach you when you're needed!

Style guides for translations

Translations are of both full articles and shorter articles continues. The process where short articles are chosen for translation hasn't been fully transparent. In the coming months we hope to have a first guide, so that anyone who writes medical or health articles knows how to get their articles to a standard where they can be translated! That's why we're currently working on medical good lede criteria! The idea is to have a similar peer review process to good article nominations, but only for ledes.
