AustLit rocks![edit]

As an Australian Literature nerd I'm on a mission to make sure that notable Australian authors and their work are documented on Wikipedia. If there is a published Australian author or book that you believe should have a Wikipedia page please let me know. Locochoko (talk) 05:28, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia and copyright[edit]

Control copyright icon Hello Locochoko, and welcome to Wikipedia. Your additions to Michael Mohammed Ahmad have been removed in whole or in part, as they appear to have added copyrighted content without evidence that the source material is in the public domain or has been released by its owner or legal agent under a suitably-free and compatible copyright license. (To request such a release, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission.) While we appreciate your contributions to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from sources to avoid copyright and plagiarism issues.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and cite the source using an inline citation. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify the information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a legally designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. Understand, though, that unlike many other sites, where a person can license their content for use there and retain non-free ownership, that is not possible at Wikipedia. Rather, the release of content must be irrevocable, to the world, into the public domain (PD) or under a suitably-free and compatible copyright license. Such a release must be done in a verifiable manner, so that the authority of the person purporting to release the copyright is evidenced. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are PD or compatibly licensed) it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions, the help desk or the Teahouse before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied or translated without attribution. If you want to copy or translate from another Wikipedia project or article, you must follow the copyright attribution steps in Wikipedia:Translation#How to translate. See also Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 14:23, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

Boooooo. The material I took from his bio on his publisher's site has been reflected word-for-word on many other websites. But "rules is rules" I guess. Locochoko (talk) 06:14, 13 March 2019 (UTC)

main space is one thing[edit]

please get a handle on what is needed on talk pages as well, thanks JarrahTree 05:35, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

happy to take your guidance on this one! Anything specific I need to know? Locochoko (talk) 05:42, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
have a look at what happened with recent new article 'o'connor' - tags for everything, and if in the text of the article a city or state is identified - always good idea to add as well - also leaving spruiking messages is ok for a while but it wears thin - some pages/spaces have lower reading rates than unidentified antartican peaks... you might have to deal with yourself as the only enthusiast - things get quiet around here. JarrahTree 06:08, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Appreciate the explanation, thank you :) So basically when I create those same (or similar/appropriate) tags at the top of the talk page? Cheers! Locochoko (talk) 06:29, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

The Lucky Galah[edit]

The best way, actually almost the sole way, to make sure that a page about a new or newish book is not deleted is to find 3 or more book reviews in WP:RS and add them to the page. Cheers.E.M.Gregory (talk) 04:01, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Never mind, this book is an exception: prizes, feature coverage.E.M.Gregory (talk) 05:01, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
Cheers, I’ll keep it in mind for future book pages :) Locochoko (talk) 09:18, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

Ways to improve Joanne van Os[edit]

Hello, Locochoko,

Thanks for creating Joanne van Os! I edit here too, under the username Lopifalko and it's nice to meet you :-)

I wanted to let you know that I have tagged the page as having some issues to fix, as a part of our page curation process and note that:-

The article does not contain any independent reliable sources that would indicate notability. One wheelercentre source is a mere bio; the other wheelercentre article is an interview, neither of which count towards notability. The same is true of using her own web site as a source.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|Lopifalko}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~ . For broader editing help, please visit the Teahouse.

Delivered via the Page Curation tool, on behalf of the reviewer.

Lopifalko (talk) 08:51, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi, thank you! I’ve added a few more references. Do you think that’s sufficient to remove the tag? Cheers Locochoko (talk) 09:47, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Posie Graeme-Evans, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sons and Daughters (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:46, 31 May 2019 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Jessica Dettmann[edit]

Hello, Locochoko,

Welcome to Wikipedia! I edit here too, under the username Onel5969 and it's nice to meet you :-)

I wanted to let you know that I’ve proposed an article that you started, Jessica Dettmann, for deletion because it meets one of the relevant criterion.The particular issue can be located in the notice, that is now-visible at the top of the article.

If you wish to prevent the deletion:

  1. Edit the page
  2. Remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. Click Publish Changes button.

But, please remember to explain why you think the article should be kept on the article's talk page and improve the page to address the raised issues. Otherwise, it may be deleted later by other means.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|Onel5969}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~ . Thanks!

Nomination of Jessica Dettmann for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Jessica Dettmann is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jessica Dettmann until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Onel5969 TT me 12:42, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

You really want to delete this acclaimed Australian female novelist, don’t you? There are many people unworthy of wiki articles, but Dettmann is not one of them. Locochoko (talk) 15:11, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
