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

COI box added to Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche[edit]

Hello! I have responded to the addition of the Conflict of Interest box added at the top of the Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche page. After reviewing the Wiki policy on maintaining neutral language, all non-neutral language has been removed the article has been cleaned up to reflect an objective stance. I have also made some comments on the page's talk page as well. Please review and if appropriate remove the box. If more work needs to be done, please give direction. Thanks!

Lorge articles[edit]

Hi-an IP editor asked myself about requesting page protection for the three Lorge articles-William, Gerald, and Robert Lorge. Being an IP, the request will go nowhere. Therefore, I am requesting page protection for the three articles. An editor has been adding materials that are not cited. Many thanks-RFD (talk) 11:44, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

Guidance please[edit]

Can you look at the recent edit history and talk page for Echosmith please? There is a dispute ongoing about including birth dates for the band members and the last editor MrK, I believe has broken the 3RR rule and has removed validly sourced information. I feel like I need time to cool off and want an impartial 3rd party to look at the issue. I watch your talk page so you can reply here if you have any questions or comments for me.

Fundamental Rights Agency[edit]

I seem to remember seeing you active on some political articles and even some antisemitism-related topics specifically. I was hoping to get this page on your radar. I noticed it from a Request Edit by someone that works there and while I didn't add the material they were suggesting, it was quickly apparent that the article has been heavily edited by someone with strong political views and was intensely unfair to them. It's a little more reasonable now. I could use your help on it in the long-term. CorporateM (Talk) 08:30, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
