Speedy deletion of File:1930s photo of the foreshore above Jeffrey Street 001 001004.jpg[edit]

hello Orangemike

Apologies if I missed earlier warnings, or if the file was incorrectly tagged however can I check please your speedy deletion of this photograph. The photograph was important to the article. The reference citation in the article on Jeffrey Street was as follows and my recollection is that a similar citation was present on the photo page:

"View to St. Aloysius' College above foreshores of Kirribilli" (photo). 1 copyprint; b&w; 204 x 254 mm, This photograph shows construction on foreshores of Kirribilli above Jeffrey Street. Above the foreshores is St. Aloysius; College incorprating Dr. Cox's home. Whilst barely visible above the trees is the tower of Star of the Sea Church. The homes Greencliffe and Craiglea are also visible on the right hand side above M. Steel boatshed. Jeffrey Street Wharf and Jeffrey Street: North Sydney Council, original publisher unknown. 1930s. Retrieved 27 June 2010. Image 001\001004 

The file appears on the Local Government website and the source attributes the photo to "c 1930s". I thought (mistakenly) that all of the correct tags has been used both in the article and also on the photo page. I refer also to the Australian Copyright Council which states that in Australia Copyright has expired in photos taken prior to 1 January 1955. This photograph is therefore approximately 20 years out of copyright. Refer to the copyright regulation here.

Can I seek your advice please as to how to reverse this or what additional "public domain" style tag you feel was missing which should have been present on this photo to cover any other countries copyright laws etc? This photo has been on this article for almost four (4) years and this is the first time that the PD status / copyright of these very old photos has been raised as an issue.

Is my deleted article stored in the Wikipedia database?[edit]

I was told my article about Claudia Caporal was deleted because it was biased and I was too "close" to her to be able to write her article. Is there a way to rescue the writing I did for it so that I may then edit it to an appropriate stage for publishing? Thank you. KatieLee92 (talk)

Second consideration appreciated on Talk:Gregor Collins[edit]

Hi, Orange Mike, or other user - this is a request for a second look ie a consideration in deleting the "Some or all of this article's listed sources may not be reliable" note that has been on the Gregor Collins article since September of 2013. Reliable sources and additional, validated wiki links (including the recently approved article Goodbye Promise) have been provided in the interim, proving it a worthy candidate for no flags. I have no reason to be untruthful that this article is indeed associated with me but that is in no way an indication it is a puff piece or autobiographical piece, nor should it not be considered just as neutral as any other entry. If for some reason it's still considered flag-worthy I'd appreciate an updated explanation and what needs to be secured to have it fully approved. Thanks for your time. Gregorcollins (talk)

Some words on "ESNA European Higher Education News"[edit]

I removed the issues from the top of the page. After spending a few weeks gradually editing this article, I believe the tone is much more neutral, many references and links have been added to integrate it, and it relies much less on primary sources. If there is anything left to be improved, please let me know. Thanks.Template:Subset:unsigned

Luv Ya page[edit]

Hello Orangemike I appreciate your advice, but just to clarify, Paloma Faith is not a minor performer. Despite not being regarded as a phenomenon like Amy Winehouse or Adele she is more popular than some may realise, and even so more financially successful than some realise. I believe if my article is up to the standard of Wikipedia, my article will be accepted. Thankyou. CandidLibraryEditors — Preceding unsigned comment added by CandidLibraryEditors (talkcontribs)

Factom[edit]

Hi Orangemike. I was attempting to create an article about a company/foundation called Factom, but received a notice that I couldn't create the article because it had already be delisted before. Can you please tell me what I need to do to (try to) create the article? I have the text ready (it's pretty short, but included sources for all the factual information). Please let me know if you have any questions or if there's anything you need from me. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Crypto88mph (talkcontribs) 08:20, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

There is currently an article Factom, but it's been nominated for deletion, since the article has no WP:RS\reliable sources, and no hint whatsoever that this software family is in any way notable enough to merit an encyclopedia article. --Orange Mike | Talk 06:55, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Draft: Skip Burkle[edit]

Hi, OrangeMike -- thank you for your helpful input on Skip Burkle's page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Skip_Burkle. Could you give a specific example of missing proper inline references and inline links which you identified as the problem there?

Also, what other issues do you see that need work / correction? It'll be much appreciated if you could point to specific problematic instances as illustrative examples, since it is more understandable that way.

Thanks in advance.EMAgain (talk) 21:42, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Read our guidelines on external links. Read our guidelines on writing with a neutral point of view. And read peacock words for an explanation of the king of language with which this draft is burdened. --Orange Mike | Talk 02:26, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, Orange Mike. Can you be more specific and show the instances of the objectionable and non-neutral language as you see them in the draft?EMAgain (talk) 05:04, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Some of it is gone; but I still see the paragraph "Burkle's vision was to have the CFE serve as a civilian-led research and training institute that would enhance the capacity of the U.S. and foreign militaries to operate effectively in humanitarian assistance missions by improving militaries' understanding of the humanitarian ethos, the guiding principles of humanitarian organizations, a rich understanding of the international humanitarian architecture and the key humanitarian organizations involved in humanitarian response. Dr. Burkle hired a highly experienced staff drawn from academia, the United Nations, the medical field, and the U.S. military to fulfill this vision.", followed almost immediately by the unsupported assertion, "Many of the staff Burkle hired have since gone on to play leading roles in a variety of humanitarian organizations and in the private sector." --Orange Mike | Talk 05:25, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
