ACC[edit]

I'll take a crack at it. My friends in England tell me that Canada is perceived as a "liberal catholic" province internationally. Let me see what I can flesh out. Thanks for the vote of confidence. Carolynparrishfan 22:50, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

History of the ACC[edit]

Regarding the unbalanced article: I agree. My contributions were intended to answer the questions: a) what is the first and b) what is the oldest? I think the casual reader wants to know that (for example, the enduring popularity of the Guiness Book of World Records); more so than a lot of the polity of the church. But yes, the article is unbalanced. Cheers! Wassupwestcoast (talk) 23:49, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

No, I wouldn't mind. My original intention was to combine the histories of the ACC and ECUSA because they share so much. But on reflection at the time, it didn't seem wise. Maybe, it would make sense to combine them. Cheers! Wassupwestcoast (talk) 01:01, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Locator Maps[edit]

To use a locator map... Go to the lower half of this page about the template usage...Examples which shows the different formats for Croatia and a few other examples. The locator map can use either decimal or degree -minute-seconds of longitude and latitude.

I generally use Geo names to find the locations. Good luck.

All you have to do is change the label, and the longitude, latitude and all should be good to go.

So a copy and paste you could use for Grenfell located at Latitude - Longitude : 50° 25' 00" N - 102° 56' 00" W or 50.416667 (West is always a negative value for longitude in decimal format) -102.933333


So in the infobox under the value of image map, this is the template to paste in. |image_map = ((Location map |Saskatchewan |label=Grenfell |lat=50.416667 |long=-102.933333 |position=right |width=300 |float=right }}

I will adjust the locator map shortly about the locations, give me a few moments longer Kind Regards Julia SriMesh | talk 03:39, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Hello I added the locator map within an infobox for Grenfell, Saskatchewan  :-)

For location maps without infoboxes see...some of these examples which also work with the longitude and latitude thrown in - maybe this way is easier. SriMesh | talk 01:28, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan[edit]

Hello there, you have done an amazing job on the Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan, as well as Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan. it is great to see some locations with probably some of the oldest records come online, especially as this was not only a main trading post site, but also as you say considered to the capital of the NWT. Cool. Keep up the absolutely great work. You even have citations!  :-) SriMesh | talk 03:52, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Re: Regina, SK article[edit]

Don't worry about differences in British vs. American spelling. However you guys write things up in Canada, is fine with me. What I was really referring to is the necessity of a good copyedit prior to nominating for WP:GA or WP:FA, particularly to catch any minor grammatical issues, or wikipedia manual of style issues, that the regular editors might have missed. Though overall, the article is very well written, but sometimes the professional copyeditors might catch things you and I might miss,... ;-) Also, two specific guidelines or templates that might help for the article are WP:USCITY and WP:UKCITIES (sorry, there's no template for Canadian cities; you're always free to start one ;-) ... but hopefully the two should help point you in the right direction towards improving the structure of any city article.

Qu'Appelle and Indian Head[edit]

Hello there I am so sorry for confusing these two fine places. We traveled home from there a few years ago, and took the pictures. I labelled them as such, as I remembered spending more time in Qu'Appelle than in Indian Head. I will defer to your knowledge of these places as you seem to know South Saskatchewan very well, and me, I'm a Saskatoonian who is trying to learn more about SK. Whenever we pop down to Regina we try to take different route there and back. If you tell me where I took the wrong turn regarding names, I will revise, please and thanks. Kind Regards. The articles are coming along so well about Qu'appelle and ort Qu'Appelle by the way. SriMesh | talk 20:07, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Well I think I have things all right now. I tried to find some images, or supporting docs for the other places. There is only for instance an RBC in one place, and the Indian Head community hall is brand new, so perhaps the Lions Community hall does belong to Qu'Appelle. The town hall matches an old Qu'Appelle postcard of the town hall. I have deleted the wrong names, and re-uploaded all the images with better names. Thanks so much for the heads up. Will be starting an article on the Bell farm next, and then revise and add it also to Wikinews as well, as 'tis in the newspaper. I do wish others would see Saskatchewan. I find it so amazing. Our Saskatoon does have a few buildings from the late 1800's which are starting to be preserved, but they are so visible in Qu'Appelle, and other small towns compared to here where you have to dig them out between the houses. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 22:25, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Featured topic proposal[edit]

Hi, Masalai! I have seen from this link that you are one of the major contributors to the articles Edward VIII of the United Kingdom and Wallis, Duchess of Windsor, both of which are featured articles. Since the article Edward VIII abdication crisis currently has GA status, it is perfectly possible to combine those three articles in order to create a featured topic (FT). All of the featured topic criteria are currently met: the topic is well-defined with no obvious gap or missing article, and I have just created a template and a category in order to fully comply with criteria 1c. I would like to hear your opinion before starting a featured topic nomination. Regards. BomBom (talk) 14:45, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

I have started a discussion about this featured topic proposal here. Your input is welcome. BomBom (talk) 15:12, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Edwina Mountbatten.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Edwina Mountbatten.jpg. 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.

Qu'Appelle photo[edit]

Hello there. Re the photo, even though the original photo was taken in 1889 so the Sk Archives who owns it can publish it which they did, we would need to ask permission from them to re-used it as now the copyright date of their website is 2005 as per their terms of use. I will pop off an email to the archives for permission for use.

re discussion on talk page, sounds like with a few more citations, and just a little tweaking, it should survive some of those comments. It is good to have content on it that is from some one from the area and not just a re-hashing of stats, so we should see if we can smoosh it into their wiki format while keeping the info intact. I will see if I have any info around and about here with citations thingies to help out, as the article as an awesome base.

Qu'appelle again[edit]

Hello there me again. Soon have to wind down tonight...found another source for ya, and more naming stuff..about the french word qu'appelle...People Places Will add demographics and go to bedSriMesh | talk 03:33, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Hello there. Tried to add a few more statistical sections..weather, government, education, geography etc. from online and book sources....as I have never had the benefit of staying/living here. I found notes about high school being taught in Qu'Appelle but it doesn't seem to be taught there any longer, do you know about secondary / post secondary education in Qu'Appelle? I don't think that the Qu'Appelle Indian school in Lebret needs mention here, even though it has a name overlap, but the location is different. I couldn't find anything online about any sports or sports teams current or previous to have a sports section. Is economy covered in the section Qu'Appelle today or should there be mention of commuting and that the loamy soil produces cereal, oilseed, forage and specialty crops in the area. The geography section could use some of the geographical sentences in other areas of the article perhaps. What is your opinion on a Sites of interest section? The historic land trail markers are not close to here. The Troy-Prince Albert trail marker is located 9.6 km w of Humboldt. The Wood Mountain-Qu'appelle trail marker is located at Oro Lake Park north east of Ormiston. There are a few historical markers in Qu'Appelle, and a few neighboring sites of interest...Qu ’Appelle Dam, Motherwell Homestead National Historic Site, Fort Qu'Appelle Museum and Lebret Museum.SriMesh | talk 04:00, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
No, the Qu'Appelle Indian school was, as you say at Lebret (actually on the opposite side of Mission Lake from Lebret) and had nothing to do with the town of Qu'Appelle. As the article states, Qu'Appelle High School was built in 1906, closed in 1973 and demolished in 1975. Masalai (talk) 04:14, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Thank you, I also see you have commuting, and thank you for the note about the high school in the article. I missed it being in the image notes. Is it possible in the article to make the image notes smaller, and put the long text of the images - which is really quite interesting - in the prose of the article so tis not missed by silly folk like me. I think some folks only read image captions, and some only the prose of the text. I tried to read both, but missed that tid bit of info. Me again. ahhh the Qu'Appelle school taught grade 1 to grade 12, and it is in modern history that James Hamblin School stops at grade 9. Where do students go now a days for grades 10-12, do they have to go all the way to Regina??.... I added a note on the Qu'Appelle talk page about the fact that there was even press coverage about the unscrupulous nature of chosing a literal pile of buffalo bones for a capital city rather than a major distribution center. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 06:19, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Edited Qu'Appelle article re business about being the capital of Sasakatchewan. Emailed to you the reply. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 23:20, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Hello there. Put article into GA nomination, but no review yet. Have talk page on watch list, I hope as you have a lot of base knowledge on this topic, you will help with the points brought forward, and the article goes to hold with pointers which can be made so it can achieve the GA status.SriMesh | talk 04:45, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
Sorry about that. The newspaper article was in reference to the Cairn and the capital city business as it was in the Globe and Mail. Haven't heard back about the school, as of yet. Don't know what to do about the capital for a day, it does indeed put a smile on the face indeed. Kind REgardsSriMesh | talk 01:52, 22 September 2008 (UTC)a

email citations[edit]

Hello. I have put in a request on citing emails and associated protocols for wikipedia articles. I know I have given emails as permission references for using photos on wikimedia commons before...will let you know if/when I hear a reply in this regards. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 17:11, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

The wikipedia email citation was removed from the Citation templates page as they could not be verified. In this case, there is an awesome published newspaper article which provides the pre-requisite verifiability. Kind REgards SriMesh | talk 23:22, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Replies[edit]

You received two comments to your query at my talk page. If everyone contributes, the article should become well rounded, and maybe even achieve GA status. There are links added which the GA reviewers have used to look at city-town-settlement articles and how they are written, that they have told me about when I have reviewed other articles trying to achieve GA status. Maybe they will be of use listed on the talk page there. On looking at some other GA placename articles there aren't any yet for Saskatchewan to use as an example to look at yet.... Kind Regards, and good luck with everything. SriMesh | talk 02:02, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

We have had an editor offer up a GA review. Did you wish to putter at some of their comments? I corrected my oops, and did a little, but we are going out tonight.SriMesh | talk 23:48, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
If you could plop in some citations or references to answer this point...Inadequate sourcing for much of the article, especially in the media, churches, cultural events, and economy.... and fix whatever else you were commenting about....we could again offer the article into a GA review...If you were leary about putting in that there was a hudson bay company post or fort at Qu'appelle as there were several more historically famous ones at Fort Qu'appelle, but I did find a website source outside the local history book that Bill Barry wrote about the Fort at Qu'Appelle. Another source was not listed was for Ka-iu Fung, Professor of Geography, at the U of S who was editor of the Atlas of Saskatchewan, Celebrating the Millenium edition pages 34 and 35. I will try to help locate references to the other if you want also....Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 16:08, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Images[edit]

I have put the full description on the actual pages that hold the images, so that the description is not lost until it can be incorporated into the article. The detail o knowing the buildings and their evolution is very invaluable, and I didn't want to loose the information while making the captions smaller. When the article is re-read then the fuller captions can be added where they make sennse to be popped back in to the article prose. For instance this is the image page for The once-thriving business district of Qu'Appelle, circa 1900. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 04:54, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Indian Head, Saskatchewan[edit]

Hello there. Thank you for your comments re the Indian Head, Saskatchewan photos. Sometimes I miss the obvious like the main streets, but if the community goes to the trouble of erecting and paying for a plaque or monument, it usually is a memory they wish to preserve of some import to that community, so that is why I usually take those photos, if I can find them. They are usually unique to each place as well...so their claim to fame. Most of the Indian Head, Saskatchewan photos are on the article except for the museum pictures, and I added the commons category link today as well. If the article was longer, perhaps the museum photo would look like it belonged also. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 00:51, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Julian Moti[edit]

Hi Masalai

I've noted that the article hadn't been updated until a week ago (Thanks for keeping an eye on it).

I've made some small edits; One to Moti's legal limbo (As I think it's fair to say that even though he's under arrest, his legal state is innnocent until proven guilty, so he's not in Limbo, he's simply awaiting trial). The other was about an article from 'The Australian Newspaper' that I think is relevant to the circumstances around the 1999 Vanuatu case. I've inserted text with citations on that, but haven't touched any text from the Marr quotes or other information you've got in there. So I hope that's ok by you.

Let me know if you have a problem with my edits.

Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Xlh (talkcontribs) 08:01, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Hmmm... Your point on the ramifications of not being tried is well taken, and certainly quite true. It's unfortunate but a reality that the legal concept of burden of truth sometimes doesn't stop people from leaping to conclusions; and there are plenty of examples worldwide where wrongfully accused people have later been vindicated, only to be left to try and pick up what's left of their lives. I haven't been back to the article since my edit of the other day... I'll try to think of an improvement if you haven't put one in already. I also definitely agree about the chronology and I think Tony's posted a tag to the same effect - it is a little disjointed now and hopefully it's just a matter of swapping text around. Xlh (talk) 08:45, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Treaty 4[edit]

Thanks for the note. I was going to talk to you about this as well. I took a picture of the location of the signing 2 years ago. The picture is called File:Treaty4.JPG and it is in the Fort Qu'Appelle category. Maybe it was called the Qu'Appelle treaty in reference to the area, but the main locale would be as you say Fort Qu'Appelle North West Territories. So the Treaty 4 article should be indeed corrected. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 06:00, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Qu'Appelle sports and recreation[edit]

Hi there. I agree totally. Those couple of places would be good to add for recreation. Are you using the conversion templates? They tend to make distance numbers easy to add to an article. Category:Conversion templates Template:Convert ````

Qu'Appelle distances[edit]

Hi there I usually go to two sites for distances, one would be mapquest, where you can type in the two places, and it calculates the distance and give the actual driving route as well. The other is Geographical Names of Canada (geonames) where you can request the closest geographical places names within either a 5, 10 or 20 km radius of the places you originally looked up. It gives the description of the site as well as the distance away from the original placename. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 23:25, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

I can find on the above geonames site the location of B-Say-Tah which is 4 km or 2 mi from Fort Qu'Appelle. The Map sources/GeoHack tool server is down on wikipedia right now, and map quest does not find B-Say-Tah. It is further than 20 km from Qu'Appelle for the geonames site. Ah ha I found it on expedia.com...and plopping it into the conversion template thingie...33.6 kilometres (20.88 miles)*

Name : B-Say-Tah Province/Territory : Saskatchewan Feature type : Village Location : 23-21-14-W2 Latitude - Longitude : 50° 46' 51" N - 103° 50' 15" W NTS Map : 062L13 SriMesh | talk 16:32, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Qu'Appelle[edit]

Hello there. I think you are right about what the post would have been in that era, that kind of building/s. . ...You know reading over your wording ....southwest of the future site of the town from 1854 through 1864...maybe the Qu'Appelle town archives or library archives or RM archives would have a planning map of the town which may have info about it....I was at the railway museum by Saskatoon the other day...and an early map of Saskatoon was amazing as to what it had on it for past localities and future plans...some of which have indeed materialized...perhaps the Qu'Appelle town planners had some sort of similar map. I looked at the satellite map on wikimapia, no ancient markings, and the TC 1 is south west, so any evidence may be under the highway. Wikimapia ....

Indian Head[edit]

Hello there.

This would be a wonderful idea, and I would be glad to plunk in my two cents worth. Thanks you so much for asking for my collaboration with you. It is good to see the articles getting rounded out and filled in. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 17:08, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

I have added some to the article, but I think what I can do has been added now. You seem to have an innate knowledge that adds a richness to the article past the dry bones. The government section may be trimmed down of the riding/constituency histories if the article proper gets too long. I don't know where to find some sectional information, but will keep an eye out for sections lacking from the article still, added the two outline formats on the talk page which help me out as to what sections have been included in WP articles in the past. I had a moment between events, so puttered a bit, but now tis your turn ;-) SriMesh | talk 21:53, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

RE towns[edit]

Hi there The part I do is very similar to the genealogy research I have been doing for quite a while, but using more web site resources than microfiche. Microfiche are not quite so much fun, sitting in a dark room peering at poor handwriting, and then the dataset you want, that photo is blurred, or a page is put over top when the photographed the content or some other Agrrh thing, but they do give information. I find with SK anyways, once I find the source for stats, weather, politics and the various sections, the sources pretty much also suffice to glean the data for the other placenames as well unless the placenames get too small and become part of the rural municipality. It has been really quite pleasing to see Saskatchewan come more and more online, about 8-9 years ago when I started looking up genealogy abroad, lots was online, and then I peeked around for SK, and it was pretty slim pickings, and it is so awesome now. I will see what I can do about the other places around and about which you mention. I, personally, would also like all thirteen cities to be beefed up as well to look like city articles instead of just 2 or 3 of them.SriMesh | talk 19:26, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Grenfell, Saskatchewan[edit]

You had added a large amount to this article by the time I visited! I will get out the atlases and start again today. It is cool to the see placename articles fill out. And these communities, have a larger amount of history than many Saskatchewan ones, they really began quite early in the history of NWT-SKSriMesh | talk 17:51, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

I did a little more on Grenfell, and I think I am nearing the end of my sources. I think the article still needs some tweaking as mentioned on the talk page where I think you and I doubled up a little in separate sections ie military. I think I will make an ethnic pie chart from the census yet. There was no weather station, so no weather chart :-( So weather can only be added by prose. It must be very similar to Indian Head for a generality.SriMesh | talk 21:29, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

ABB Grain[edit]

Hi, may I ask why the fact that Viterra was "(formerly the Saskatchewan Wheat Board)" is relevant to the section in the article ABB Grain about the merger? Besides, was it not a merger between the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool and Agricore United?

In the Viterra article, it does not say "ABB, the most part of which is made up of AusBulk" or anything of the sort. This is because most readers of these sections do not particularly care what's happened in the companies' history, and if they did, they could simply follow the link to read a bit more about that company (the fact that Viterra was formed between two companies is mentioned in the lead section of the Viterra article). --timsdad (talk) 08:01, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Whitewood, Saskatchewan[edit]

Hello there, Yes I did peek in for a little while at Whitewood, Saskatchewan... Will see what other goodies I can find about it, with seasons changing schedules are also changing, so we haven't got into a pattern yet. I see that you already did some puttering as well!!

The French Counts of St Hubert, Saskatchewan[edit]

Did you see the new article The French Counts of St Hubert, Saskatchewan created by a new wiki-editor Gating? They may indeed also be of some help in that neck of the woods of Saskatchewan.

I tried to wikify the somewhat, but it is rather a new type of area, a historical ethnic settlement, but I don't believe it is a provincial or federal historical site, .... may have to write to the Saskatchewan heritage society or folklore socity for a designation or if there is a cairn,plaque in the area. SriMesh | talk 01:33, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

From the sounds of it on the talk page, he got permissions to use an old article of the Whitewood Herald, so it was that editor probably which chose the spelling style. It could probably be cleaned up to be consistent with the use of only one convention which would be grammatically more accurate. It sounds like the folks from St. Hubert went to horse races with the folks at Cannington Manor. I had previously heard of the huge (in comparison to homesteads) la Rolandrie Ranch in southern Saskatchewan. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 03:03, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

I'm thrilled that the French Counts article has generated some interest. The author of the original article, (Larry Smeets) and I grew up in the St Huberts area. I now live in Manitoba and Larry lives in BC. We both have relatives in the area and ancestors buried in the St Huberts cemetery. The article was part of a commemorative book "Memories of St Huberts" that was written for the 90th anniversary of St Huberts parish in 1980. The book was printed but not published by the Whitewood Herald. I would look forward to adding more material to wikipedia generally and about this area of Sask. I must study up on my Wikipedian skills. --ggatin (talk) 06:14, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Plopped a link to investigate further on the talk page. I am not sure if all the notes can be verified, if they can they could be added into the article proper.

vISITS to Saskatchewan[edit]

I find your comments interesting re photos and the seasons. Of course, as I live in Saskatoon, that is the majority of my contributions, but I have tried to run here and there when I can. But doing other SK work, it is amazing the # of times asked by other folks in the WWW what here looks like in winter, so I have had to click a few of those here and there, but travelling is easier in the summer - and the football games are summer and fall so they entice us around and about a bit better. I wish you luck with you new job. Will continue to peek in at the article of Whitewood here and there, things a bit busier now, and our poor little puppy is in at the vets :-( but we should get her back home tommorrow. :-) Take care.

Edit summary[edit]

Your last edit at Alexander Cambridge, 1st Earl of Athlone was summarised as: "says in the lede that he was GG of both South Africa and Canada; it says in articles on GGs of Australia and New Zealand that they were indeed GGs. What are you looking for?" I'm not entirely sure what you're asking, though. Can you clairfy? --Ħ MIESIANIACAL 16:43, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

An editor inserted the business about his being a member of the Royal Families of the UK and Canada and reverted my deletion of "and Canada." That deletion was predicated on the basis that if it were appropriate to add that detail it would also be necessary to include all the other "British Dominions Beyond the Seas." The editor indicated in so-reverting that there was no citation for the other "Commonwealth Realms," as they are now styled, having the British monarch as their heads of state, whereas this is the definition of a Commonwealth Realm. And indeed the lede of the article specifically says that the Earl himself served a term as Governor-General of South Africa before he was Governor General of Canada. I was not seriously asking; I was challenging. Masalai (talk) 16:49, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Your question was so vaguely worded as to leave one wondering what you're challenging. The "of Canada" part is reliably cited; I'd say your logic for the rest of the realms is sound, but, unfortunately, Wikipedia is governed by sources, not logic. What other option is there, then, other than including that which is sourced and leaving out that which is not? --Ħ MIESIANIACAL 15:29, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

PNG question[edit]

I think the problem can be readily solved by being bold with merging and redirect. There doesn't seem to be any editors actively maintaining the pages. So, create a new page with the proper name and merge and redirect to them. Any editor can do this. See:Help:Merging and Wikipedia:Redirect. I've done this on other occassions and it usually goes well. If you want, you can give 5 or 7 days notice of discussion. I doubt it will lead any where. Sometimes it is best to be bold and do it.

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:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

Michael Somare[edit]

Hi, please remember Wikipedia:Neutral point of view when contributing to articles and please take also a look at Wikipedia:Honorifics#Honorific_prefixes and Wikipedia:Honorifics#Subsequent_uses_of_names. The constant use of "His Excellency Grand Chief the Right Honourable Sir Michael Thomas Somare, GCL, GCMG, CH, CF's" in the mentioned article is contrary against the cited links and should be avoided. Best wishes. ~~ Phoe talk ~~ 20:47, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

Episcopal[edit]

Respectfully, I would maintain that the analogy does not hold. In Quebec, "Episcopale" is routinely used in church literature as the French equivalent of "Anglican." That is a difference in degree from urban cathedrals or Muskoka parishes providing parenthetical accommodation to American visitors. Carolynparrishfan (talk) 19:18, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

Umm, yes, I do, as I thought my previous post made clear. In English Canada, church signs in high-tourism areas often add the "Episcopal" tag to be helpful. I don't think that this is at all the same as the situation in Quebec, where "Anglicane" while official seems to be dis-preferred outside of legal and canonical contexts. I would argue that a closer analogy would be the Scottish or American churches, where "Anglican" is likewise avoided out of historical sensitivity (although there the legal name matches the common one, while Canada has opted for a characteristically muddled - Anglican? - solution). My own city's cathedral uses the word "Episcopal" on its sign, but no one calls it "the Episcopal cathedral." By contrast, in Quebec, the change to "Anglicane" just doesn't seem to have caught on, or at least has done so highly inconsistently. Indeed, in 2006, the Bishop of Montreal moved to revert the name officially at Provincial Synod. Carolynparrishfan (talk) 16:32, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Hey there

I was looking at your image (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Brisbane_CBD_from_Chatsworth_Road_at_Cavendish_Road,_2009.JPG) on the Coorparoo, Queensland page, and noticed that the location you gave didn't match up (I'm a local to that area). I had a bit of a look around and I think you took it from Upper Cornwall Street, not Cavendish Road.

Do you have any idea as to whether this is the case? I'm pretty sure I'm right, but I thought I would double check before I go editing anything.

Here is a detailed Picture Tutorial about the following wiki code....

[[File:Ambum Valley, Enga PNG where I was vice principle.jpg|thumb|left|alt=Ambum Valley, Enga.|Ambum Valley, Enga.]]

The above code makes the image appear in an article like this in this wiki mail

Ambum Valley, Enga.
Ambum Valley, Enga.

Beautiful place BTW,

Wikipedia finished, now I will talk about HTML code


When not using wiki mark up but in another program using HTML you would insert a thumbnail (100 pixels in width with this code

Speedy deletion nomination of Joan Givner[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 Joan Givner 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.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 05:29, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Joan Givner[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Joan Givner has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 20:47, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

Clean up, expanding, and referencing[edit]

Hi. I'm just letting you know that I have cleaned up, expanded, referenced, and edited the article Joan Givner, and saved it from being speedy deleted.

Grenfell[edit]

Hi, sorry for the delay. I didn't go inside, I just drove through and took a few pictures to add to Wikipedia that were lacking at that time :) If I am ever lucky enough to drive across Canada again, I will do my best to make a lot more contributions. --Eternalsleeper (talk) 08:24, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Uploads still needed?[edit]

Hi! I noticed that you removed some files from a gallery of your uploads. If you do not think they are still usefull you could nominate the files for deletion. --MGA73 (talk) 17:08, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for the reply on my talk page. I deleted most of the pictures. One was still in use but almost a duplicate of another of your uploads so I deleted the file and used the other version instead. Another is still in use so I did not delete that. If you think other of your files should be deleted you could add {{Delete|Some reasom}} on the file page. --MGA73 (talk) 13:21, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Re:"File:MacPherson School south of Grenfell (If it was never published, that is not the correct copyright tag)"[edit]

If the image creator died in 1980, then it's not yet going to be in the public domain; presumably, copyright would have passed to the next of kin. Who was the original photographer? J Milburn (talk) 17:43, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Would have been the original photographer herself. Surely it isn't necessary to provide that here, is it? Masalai (talk) 23:16, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Knox-Metropolitan United Church (Regina, Saskatchewan)[edit]

A tag has been placed on Knox-Metropolitan United Church (Regina, Saskatchewan), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing no content to the reader. Please note that external links, "See also" section, book reference, category tag, template tag, interwiki link, rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article don't count as content. Moreover, please add more verifiable sources, not only 3rd party sources. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content. You may wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.svg which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the article's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. jfd34 (talk) 06:52, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Images in Regina[edit]

Images should be as per Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Images#Forced image size and Wikipedia:Image use policy#Displayed image size. If you thought there was a problem with the one image then you should have fixed that one rather than reverting all of them. The images were being displayed at various sizes and there was no gap between the end of the image and the sentence making it very hard to edit. I would also like to point you to Wikipedia:Ownership of articles. By the way the image looked fine at 1000px. CambridgeBayWeather (talk) 13:13, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Wascana Centre and Regina downtown.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Wascana Centre and Regina downtown.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) 15:56, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your message. Alas, I obtained the photo so long ago that I cannot recall the circumstances, though I am certain I properly obtained permission. Alas, tracing the source indicates that it no longer exists: "Not Found The requested URL /AboutRegina.html was not found on this server." Do you have any suggestion as to how the issue you raise might be resolved in the cirumcances? Masalai (talk) 16:33, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Thank You for the Wikipedia Picture[edit]

Hello, My name is Duane Hurst and I recently made a free (non-commercial) English web site to share information with people. I added links to your Wikipedia/Wikimedia freeware picture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Wascana_Creek.jpg). I also gave credit to you on my web pages for your work. Thank you for sharing with the public. My website is:

http://www.freeenglishsite.com/

I add pictures such as yours to one of the following major sections of my site: 1. World section - contains information and over 10,000 images of every world country and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/index.htm

2. USA section - contains information and images of every USA state and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/usa/index.htm

3. English section - "Mel and Wes" lessons in conversation format. Stories are located in various USA states and world countries such as China, England, Germany, Japan, Mexico and Thailand. Each lesson has many slang terms and idioms, which I link to my Slang Dictionary. This eventually will have over 5,000 terms. Currently, it has about 3,000 slang and idioms. I regularly add new lessons and slang terms. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/lessons/index.htm Slang Dictionary link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/slang/Eslang_a.htm

Prior to retirement, I taught English at several private and public universities in the United States.

Please share this free site with your friends. I hope all will enjoy the pictures and find the English information useful. Sincerely,  Duane Hurst in Utah, USA

Replaceable fair use File:Festival in Buin honouring traditional festivity.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Festival in Buin honouring traditional festivity.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

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

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fut.Perf. 13:27, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:A.H. Voyce. Peacemakers.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:A.H. Voyce. Peacemakers.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you think that your 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.

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:From Heaven Lake.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.

You may add it back if you think 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).

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:India Remembered.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:India Remembered.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rahul Bott (talk) 09:49, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
