Adelaide High School[edit]


I removed your note about the SFSA because I considered it not to be encyclopedic. I thought it was not relevant to someone trying to find out about Adelaide High School from an encyclopedic perspective. See also WP:NOT#SOAP, try not to write about things that you have a strong personnel involvement in. ...maelgwntalk 00:12, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Your large amount of personnel involvement is entirely relevant, it means that the reasons for your changes are to push a personal agenda rather than to improve the content of the encyclopedia. Wikipedia is not a way to stop the double booking of their facilities. No I will not agree to moderation and suggest you post on Talk:Adelaide High School. PS Why do you keep emailing me? ...maelgwntalk 08:36, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

As Lt. Doolittle told Bomb #20, the origin of the argument is not important. Your "not soap" links to screed on bias, not interest. Any subjective experience can be couched in "neutral point of view" terms, and hence be objective. From Wikipedia's point of view they aren't against objective information, just biased propaganda. From your arguement anyone with an interest should be barred from anything they know about. The school has requested we add this to their entry, are they (being the subject) also too personally involved?

As to it not being encyclopedic, I don't know what model you're using. Take the example of the first public execution in the colony of South Australia. If I put this up in the other uses of site subentry would you remove it? If yes your're wrong, it's relevant to the school. And if no you're still wrong, as the club is relevant to the school entry. PS because this is the first time I've used a talk page. ...martinsfsa 13:00, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

Yes the school is personally involved and should not be involved in the contents of it's page on wikipedia. Yes but you're club is not relevant to the school. Its has no impact on education at the school, the schools history, foundings, curriculm, staff, students, current student achievements ... all the things that are notable to anyone interested in the school ...maelgwntalk 05:25, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

I do not understand why you are saying this, as we're not saying it's any of those things but another use of the site. It is a part of the school. It is going in the school history book. It's relevant both to the school, and all the other people who keep being double booked with us. There's a place for this information and it's in this entry! All organisations with this kind of relationship should be listed in the school entry. All other uses of the site should be available through the entry. What do you suggest to make this happen? A separate entry listing other uses? And what about the first execution? Would you remove that? As you won't agree to mediation, will you at least seek a second opinion? ...martinsfsa 18:15, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

How about posting on the Talk:Adelaide High Schooltalk page? You don't have to ask me to do anything, i have just as much power as you. You could even just revert it and see what happens...maelgwntalk 00:13, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

That's not quite true--I'm being creative and you're being destructive. It takes time for me to put up these changes and no time at all for you to obliterate them. I'd like some consensus before putting the effort it. If you will agree to putting up a second entry of other site uses it'd be worth my time. Would you contribute to such an entry? ...martinsfsa 07:05, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

The formal proposal[edit]

Sir, I suggest that the present you is not the orginal you, but is a mere proposal of yourself. If one would like to disagree with my proposal, then I suggest that you are quite possibly disagreeing with yourself. Of course, one could be wrong, which would lead one into all sorts of discussions about if one is truly one's own self. Do you agree? Answers on a postcard please, to be sent to...--andreasegde (talk) 22:22, 28 May 2008 (UTC)


You could add your name to this, as you reverted a vandal on Macca's page (which shows a caring attitude, and for which we are extremely grateful). It's a lot nicer inside the house, and you would be very welcome. :)--andreasegde (talk) 01:49, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks; I'd have already done so if I was into it. As it is I'm already a member of a group: the South Australian Doctor Who Fan Club, and that should be enough for any man! MartinSFSA (talk) 11:42, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Uhhh, I remember watching the first B&W episodes when the intro was a striped tunnel that the camera flew down/through (which was probably just an effect). The strange thing was that I had the same vision when my dentist gave me gas to put me under. Yes, it used to be allowed... :)--andreasegde (talk) 17:36, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

I forgot; I think the Macca problem just may have been solved.--andreasegde (talk) 17:37, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks again for that! I only date back to when it was in colour; no possibility I saw any now missing episodes. MartinSFSA (talk) 18:29, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

June 2008[edit]

Information.png Welcome to Wikipedia. The recent edit you made to Paul McCartney has been reverted, as it appears to have removed content from the page without explanation. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thanks. FelisLeoTalk! 08:47, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

You have reinstated a press release. I provided an edit summary on first reversion, but not on subsequent removal. MartinSFSA (talk) 08:53, 3 June 2008 (UTC)


Hi Martin! The SFSA should have given away who I was talking to on the Reliable sources noticeboard‎, but I'm dense that way. I trust that you are well. :) Is the SFSA still going? - Bilby (talk) 14:02, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi again and thanks for your advice! Going it is (AGM Saturday week) and a third distribution of publications to each High School in SA will hopefully get some more members; you'd think having the show in production again would do this but numbers remain static. MartinSFSA (talk) 14:28, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Double Gammas[edit]

Thanks for the message. The overriding guideline for notability is WP:N, followed by verifiability WP:V and reliable sources WP:RS.  – ukexpat (talk) 15:25, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

The tag is there because it was the closest one for this situation - I can change it to the simple notability tag if that makes things easier. Either way the article has notability issues and you should be ready in case another editor nominates it for deletion under the Afd process. – ukexpat (talk) 16:01, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
Done, but the tag is there because I do not think it does meet the notability guidelines. – ukexpat (talk) 16:08, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Doctor Who[edit]

Unfortunate; however, since it's shown in the UK first, you'd expect the article to be edited to reflect that, and I doubt there's anything can be done about it. Whereas we did have a {{Spoiler}} template, its use seems now to be deprecated, and even so, given the enthusiasm some editors have for jumping the gun, it's not surprising to find such matters discussed on the talk page. Sorry, it's a fact of life. --Rodhullandemu 19:14, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:DG.PNG[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:DG.PNG. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

The Web of Fear[edit]

Thanks for your message - how about a little politeness and belief in "good faith"??? I listened to a reputable, genuine interview from an actor who stated he had been told the episodes had been found. I do not follow every single Doctor Who fansite, news site or fan club and cannot be expected to know what was a "disreputable rumour" two years ago. I acted in good faith and do not expect to be told off by the resident Doctor Who schoolmaster. A simple polite message pointing out that this rumour was discredited two years ago would have sufficed.Paul75 (talk) 01:13, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Hey MartinSFSA. My bad. I guess I misunderstood everything I read lead me to believe that it was all found. They said 5 episodes were found, I thought they already had one & so that would complete serial. oops. Now I understand my mistake. Sorry,

Speedy deletion nomination of Tracy muzyk[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Tracy muzyk 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 or group of people, 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 see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. WWGB (talk) 11:45, 20 August 2009 (UTC)


Er, sorry about that. Didn't realize that and had not seen the previous discussions. JoshuaZ (talk) 17:48, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

September 2009[edit]

Information.svg Please do not add content without citing verifiable and reliable sources, as you did to Doctor Who. Before making any potentially controversial edits, it is recommended that you discuss them first on the article's talk page. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. magnius (talk) 18:54, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

Re: Your post on my talk page[edit]

I just read your post on my talk page, and have no idea what universe you are living in. I stand by absolutely everything I've said on the Talk:Doctor Who#Kennedy assassination thread as factually accurate, logically valid and to the point under discusasion. If by "do it on our talk pages" you mean here instead of that of the article under discussion, I do not see any reason for that at all and will deal with this there only now. --Tbrittreid (talk) 20:58, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Force 10 from Navarone[edit]

Can you please make this verification notes?

Verification for bridge: In the Movie: Real location: Đurđevića Tara Bridge, Montenegro (at that period of time was SR Montenegro, Yugoslavia, but not Bosnia)

(please your post answer here) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:13, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

No and no. I have no idea where the fictional bridge is supposed to be or if that bridge stands in for it at the location; it is a fictional bridge at a fictional location. If you want to put up an argument that this should link to that particular entry then please make it on the Navareone talk page.MartinSFSA (talk) 04:57, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
OK, calm down. :) I still believe that it is incorrect to say that bridge is in Bosnia, as nobody mentions Bosnia and Herzegovina in entire movie. However, the place I mentioned above was used as a movie location. In film credits are also mentioned locations like Malta and Channel Islands. Maybe I should enter talk page. I just wanted assistance to do verification, I am new on Wikipedia and I am not sure how to perform it in right way. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:18, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
OK, now that I will do. Remove "Bosnia" in favour of "Yugoslavia" and at the location in "Film Facts". Summary of both changes to talk page. Everyone's happy. MartinSFSA (talk) 18:26, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Please wait while this is being examined at Wikipedia:WikiProject_on_open_proxies/Unblock#  Sandstein  09:19, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Note the admin who blocked IP also blocked several thousand other numbers over a couple of days of terror -- two and a half years ago. This asteroid of poo is still wandering around near Earth, just waiting to strike any unfortunate user whose IP dynamically changes to any of the blocked numbers. May I suggest unblocking them all unless there's some more recent evidence of "open proxies"? MartinSFSA (talk) 13:08, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
I'd really recommend avoiding the personal attacks. The IP is now unblocked. The admin is unlikely to have repeated this type of blocking spree since I brought it to his attention, some time ago. The list of IPs to be unblocked is still in the queue of work to be done. There's always lots to do. -- zzuuzz (talk) 13:25, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Zzuzz, hope the hypersensitivity clears up sometime soon. If I get around to making a personal attack it wouldn't be about a fanciful "asteroid of poo". And why not; I've had enough hours to contemplate it. MartinSFSA (talk) 13:35, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

James Morrison[edit]

Martin, For some reason you keep editing James Morrisons Wikepiedia entry to say he downloaded a copy of the Spanish National Anthem? This is complete fabrication. You are citing a transcript of an interview on enough rope. A quote of which follows.

"Well, they sent me the music and they said, "Here's the Spanish anthem, learn it, play it." It was a gig, and...great. And so I learnt it and I... I don't know why, it wasn't a foreboding, but I thought, I'd better make sure I've got the right track, that I don't learn the one next...the Swedish national anthem or something. So I actually put the disk they'd sent in my computer - you know it identifies what's on it - it came up with, from the Net, not their disk, "Spanish National Anthem". "Good, I've got the right track." It came up with that because it WAS the Spanish national anthem, but the wrong one....."

Nowhere in this quote does it say he downloaded it from a peer to peer network. It came from a disc released by Master Song Australia copyright Master tech Pty Ltd released By MRA (now bankrupt). This disc is STILL available for purchase in some record stores, which is where it came from in the first place.

What he says is he put the disc into a computer and let one of the online databases check the song names. The disc was provided to him by Tennis Australia. Feel free to contact me to clarify this if you don't understand any of it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:18, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Dear office,
May I suggest that, if it is as you say (and at variance with Morrison's comments), and you are unwilling to learn, that you seek help from someone who knows how to edit Wikipedia? MartinSFSA (talk) 10:59, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Double Gammas[edit]

Hi Martin1 Great to hear from you again. :) I hope things are going well with the club - my family are all very exciting about the new companion. :) I'm not sure what to do with the Double Gammas content. I assume that main issue is the list of winners not being included? If not, we can certain expand the coverage in the larger article, but I'm not sure if we can justify the full list, although I think that there is a case for it, and I'd like to see it kept. We could easily justify an external link to sfsa for the list, if that would help. But I'm very happy to do what I can. :) - Bilby (talk) 03:23, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
