Atlas (June 1801)[edit]

Hi Newm30. User:Prisencolin appears to be adding non-notability deletion notices to a variety of articles that don't interest him. As an inclusionist, that really annoys me. I view it as a form of drive-by vandalism. And as a former Aussie, it really annoys me when he decides what bits of Australian or nautical history are notable. Regards, Acad Ronin (talk) 12:32, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

It would appear to be a strange nomination for deletion, as the ship is greater than 300-tons and also shipwrecked which gets the article notability automatically. Will keep an eye out for any further nominations and will take it up the line. From a fellow Aussie. Regards, Newm30 (talk) 00:40, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Thnaks. Prisencolin seems to have stopped, at least the last time I checked. I left him a message re "All ships are notable". Acad Ronin (talk) 02:59, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Salamander[edit]

Am continuing to work on this. Turns out she is the former HMS Shark renamed to HMS Salamander in 1778, before being sold in 1783. Good stuff. Acad Ronin (talk) 02:59, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

@Acad Ronin: that is a great find. A beer for you mate. If she is more notable as a HM ship please move to appropriate page name. Newm30 (talk) 03:23, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
Tough call re move. She was not particularly notable as HMS, but there is no clear date for her becoming the mercantile Salamander. In 1776 she was HMS Shark. She didn't become HMS Salamander until 1778, and Salamander somewhere between 1783 and 1786. The only thing about Salamander's start date that is sure is that in 1776 she wasn't Salamander, so the current article title is WRONG. I think I will move her to HMS Shark and trust to the redirects to make it easy for Aussies following Bateson to find her. Acad Ronin (talk) 03:36, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
Done. I love it when Wikipedia is more complete and more accurate than its individual sources. Cheers. Acad Ronin (talk)

Proposed deletion of Bradie Smith[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Bradie Smith has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

fails WP:RLN as has not played first grade rugby league

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

March Madness 2017[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout March 2017 the Military history Wikiproject is running its March Madness drive. This is a backlog drive that is focused on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • updating the project's currently listed A-class articles to ensure their ongoing compliance with the listed criteria
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various task force pages or other lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the military history scope will be considered eligible. More information can be found here for those that are interested, and members can sign up as participants at that page also.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 March and runs until 23:59 UTC on 31 March 2017, so please sign up now.

For the Milhist co-ordinators. Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) & MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 07:24, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from [[:[First War of Scottish Independence]] into English invasion of Scotland (1298). While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was moved, attribution is not required. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 19:52, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Thanks@Diannaa: for the notice. I will be copyediting tonight and rewriting that particular part. I had problems with my tablet last night and I will use my laptop. Regards Newm30 (talk) 23:20, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Industry in British Burma[edit]

A tag has been placed on Category:Industry in British Burma requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

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 "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. —swpbT 14:36, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
