(The Honourable) Lara Giddings[edit]

I don't think this page is very clear regarding the retention of the Honourable title for life—as I understand it in Tasmania, former Ministers and presiding officers of three years standing are eligible to apply to the Governor to retain the title for life, but it is not automatic. The Gazette from 1990 confirms this unless the Royal Prerogative was changed recently (I know it was granted for life to future Governors from 2014). I was going on the House of Assembly List of Members, where the only former minister to be listed with the Honourable title is David Llewellyn, who was granted life use in 1992. --Canley (talk) 06:39, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

I understand, and so I'll try find an adequate source. I will undo my edit per this discussion. Kind regards, —MelbourneStartalk 06:42, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll have a look too, for evidence either way! --Canley (talk) 06:43, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
There's a recent Government Notice from May 2014 in the Tasmanian Government Gazette, says it is authorised by the Governor on recommendation of the Premier. --Canley (talk) 06:47, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
Hmmm fair enough, we shall leave the title out I suppose, considering we can't find any sources to verify whether or not Giddings was granted an honourific. Thanks for your assistance, —MelbourneStartalk 10:11, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Uploading File[edit]

Hi do you know how to upload a file?(Bistymings (talk) 03:20, 23 August 2015 (UTC))

Hi Bistymings and welcome to Wikipedia!
I already see that there has been some correspondence on your talk page (here) in regards to how to upload an image. Your query is in relation toi the 3rd step, if I'm correct, which is in regards to the image's copyright status. To determine the image's source and or copyright status, please have a read of this, which carefully explains to you everything you will need to know about uploading images, and the respective copyright status. Hope that helps, best —MelbourneStartalk 11:56, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Labor ideology[edit]

Please explain your reason for removing my edit on Australian Labor Party, a centre-left political party, where I edited the page to show the parties political position. Similarly, with the centre-right Coalition, I edited the page to show that the coalition was centre-right. Most political party wikipedia pages list where the party falls on the political spectrum and this makes it much easier to identify what kind of a party it is to people not familiar with the party. The logical exception to this is when parties do not fall clearly into the left-right spectrum which both parties clearly do. — Preceding unsigned comment added by VerisaddEmoboii (talkcontribs) 14:27, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi VerisaddEmoboii, and welcome to Wikipedia.
I undid your edit, because you added content which clearly required consensus on the article's talk page – as the note (which you removed also) specifically asked for. I understand where you are coming from, and I personally agree; however, consensus with other editors/the Wikipedia community as a whole, overrides our personal views. Hence, for future references, please discuss your edits on the talk, prior to making said edits against consensus. If you need any assistance in future, please let me know. Best, —MelbourneStartalk 14:34, 26 August 2015 (UTC)


Please do tell me the information that I got wrong. Christie has signed for Celtic and Rangers were paying for players they couldn't afford. Thomskiyi (talk) 07:28, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

Your edits are completely unsourced, unconstructive, and furthermore: your edit summaries are completely misleading. Please cease this. Thank you, —MelbourneStartalk 07:31, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
