Melbourne Star has been moved back per a request at WP:RM/TR

Hello Melbourne3163. I noticed your name in the move log for this article. The page has now been moved back to Melbourne Star per a request at WP:RM/TR as a 'revert of undiscussed move.' If you still think the page belongs at Melbourne Star Observation Wheel use a {{Requested move}} template to open a move discussion on the talk page. Then, after seven days, consensus will decide the best title. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 20:37, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi. I requested the revert. I have explained why at Talk:Melbourne Star#Article name. Thanks... 27.55.199.195 (talk) 21:15, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your message. I will use a Requested move template and add my reasons to the discussion. Cheers Melbourne3163 (talk) 22:29, 30 August 2013 (UTC)


Speedy delete tagging

Hi, you tagged Mooroolbark junior soccer club for speedy deletion. You did a couple of things wrong. First, don't sign the tag. Just add only the template, e.g. {{db-G7}}, to the article. Second, you should notify the creator. You added the notification template to the article talk page. If you have any questions, please let me know.--Bbb23 (talk) 10:43, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Many thanks for your comments, my first time for this type of action. I did follow a similar example but made the errors you have pointed out. I'll learn from that. Thanks again. Melbourne3163 (talk) 11:19, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Essendon/AFL issue

Thanks again for the heads-up. I have just found an ABC article about the refutation and will make the revision now.--Soulparadox (talk) 14:04, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

No worries, I thought it was probably just a typo! Thanks for expanding the article, I have been meaning to do that for a while but have neglected it. --Canley (talk) 05:25, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

helpful script

Hello Melbourne. I saw a question on the AIV talk page about seeing what ended up happening in regards to an IP report that has since been removed. As you probably have warned the person in most cases before reporting, there is a script that can easily help you see if it was blocked yet.

importScript('User:NuclearWarfare/Mark-blocked script.js')

This helpful script if added to your moonbook's .js will show all blocked editors with a strikeout through their username or IP address (both on the watch list and signatures). I find it highly helpful and maybe you might too. Take care Calmer Waters 05:46, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Re the Channel Seven offending paragraph :)

You suggested that the paragraph being more than a little unkind to Channel Seven should be removed in its entirety, and I'll go along with that. Heck, all the comments may in fact be absolutely correct for all I know, but they're not substantiated in any way by whoever the original writer was.

Best wishes ... off to do it now :) 178.78.76.100 (talk) 08:18, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Your sandbox

I have "broken" the redirect on your sandbox so that you can easily add the {{db-user}} tag for it to be deleted. Then you will get a fresh sandbox to begin your next article. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 15:20, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

Thank you so much for your assistance. I was getting rather confused about how to effectively fix this situation, before you took that action. Cheers. Melbourne3163 (talk) 15:45, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi. I think you left the wrong message on my talk page (it doesn't match your edit summary). If so, please could you remove it? Thanks. Edit summary was "ce" which means "copy-edit". 82.132.224.153 (talk) 11:15, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

I think you may be referring to my first message? I amended it (prior to your message) to better reflect what I am referring to. Blanking a whole section really requires a more appropriate edit summary than 'ce' or copy/edit, even if only as a courtesy to a fellow editor, in the case me. Cheers. Melbourne3163 (talk) 11:26, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
I didn't blank the section, I moved it. Diff. For missing/bad summaries, check out Template:Uw-editsummary and Template:Uw-wrongsummary. Hope this helps. 82.132.224.153 (talk) 11:36, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I have removed my comments/queries on your talk page. I did not pick up that you moved my edit. Aopologies. I am wondering why you are editing as 82.132.224.153, a new editor who only started today, when you are clearly an experienced editor, if you don't mind me asking? Melbourne3163 (talk) 11:53, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Absolutely no problem. I've been editing since 2005, but I've never had an account.
What do you think is the best way to position the reopening? How about a ===Reopening=== heading, so that it's the final sub-section of the ==Reconstruction== section? I realise it will follow the 2013 subsection, but I don't think that will cause any confusion, especially if the section begins something like "The wheel finally reopened on 24 December 2013" (ie include the year). 82.132.224.153 (talk) 13:18, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay in replying. I like the idea of a Reopening section and the placement you propose. Cheers. Melbourne3163 (talk) 21:15, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Josh Gibson (footballer) may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Josh Earl

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Josh Earl, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.joshearl.com.au/bio/.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) MadmanBot (talk) 22:37, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Please refer to my response below. Many thanks. Melbourne3163 (talk) 23:12, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Josh Earl

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 Josh Earl requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://www.joshearl.com.au/bio/. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

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. Thebestofall007 (talk) 22:42, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your message. I have replied via the contest button and I hope my reasons and the current version of the page are within policy. I won't repeat here what I have said in my response, I would just ask that you read it and consider it; I am a very hard-working, loyal and devoted editor. Cheers. Melbourne3163 (talk) 23:10, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

I removed the deletion template

I do see the changes you made to Josh Earl, as you appear to have re done it in your own words from what I see in the duplication detector tool, and I removed the deletion template. Copying and pasting info from another website is considered copyright infringement obviously, and even if you provide your own words, just make sure to cite the source much like you would if you were writing a research paper for a college class for example. This also provides verifiability so readers can see that the info comes from a valid source and isn't just made up. I hope this clears things up. Thebestofall007 (talk) 01:24, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Many thanks for your guidance and assistance. I am glad it is now resolved. Regards. Melbourne3163 (talk) 02:12, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

External links

While an external link to the subject is appropriate, Wikipedia is not a link wall to give direct access to EVERY page vaguely related to the subject. Perhaps one of the others is more appropriate, but it should be the one most directly related to giving the most encyclopedic information about the subject as a person of note, and not the one that provides the most direct commercial venue. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 21:04, 3 January 2014 (UTC) -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 21:04, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Ok, I understand much better now. Thank you for your most helpful comments. Cheers. Melbourne3163 (talk) 21:09, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
