Brisbane Meetup[edit]

Hi there! I'm dropping you this notice as you've indicated on your userpage that you're a Wikipedian in the Brisbane area. Assuming significant interest, I'm organising an event for August 22 at the SLQ Café in South Brisbane, and we'd love for you to come along. A list of people interested in coming, and a discussion space has been created at Wikipedia:Meetup/Brisbane/8. Hope to see you there! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 10:39, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Potential admin[edit]

Hi, I notice you're on Wikipedia:List of administrator hopefuls. Wikipedia would benefit from more admins. If you have been editing for more than 12 months (preferably 24+ months), and have been editing fairly consistently for the past 6 months (preferably 12+ months) with at least 100 edits a month (this tool will help) - or an explanation for any gaps, and haven't been blocked or topic banned in the past three years - or a good explanation for a recent block or ban, don't have a recent history of edit warring or arguing with other editors, feel you can explain why you wish to be an admin, can demonstrate some understanding of Wikipedia's procedures and processes, or know where to go for guidance, and are confident enough to go through a RfA, please get in touch with me. We can talk about it some more, and if all looks OK, I'll nominate you. SilkTork ✔Tea time 12:19, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for this. A couple of years ago, I was editing very frequently, and that's when I would have put myself on that list. Since then, just because of life in general, I am much less active. I would still love to be an admin, but I haven't had 100 edits a month for a while, and I can't promise that I will any time soon. Apart from that, I do feel that I have a good understanding of Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, including the Manual of Style (of which I initiated the move to the current subpage structure). If you feel it's still possible for me to be an admin now or in the future, I'd love to continue this conversation. Cheers, McLerristarr | Mclay1 12:40, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
Hi. Thanks for getting back to me. After looking at your contributions I agree with your own assessment. You would need between six and twelve months of consistently higher contribution levels to have a reasonable chance of the community accepting you as an admin. If you do that, and still feel that you would like to help out further by becoming an admin, please get in touch again, and we can have a chat then about what would need to be done. Assisting in admin related areas, such as AfD, AN, CSD, etc, plus getting involved in GA - doing reviews, and perhaps getting an article to GA level, would also help.

Beetals listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Beetals. Since you had some involvement with the Beetals redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Mr. Guye (talk) 23:32, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
