Here are some useful tips to ease you into the Wikipedia experience:
- First, take a look at the Wikipedia Tutorial, and perhaps dabble a bit in the test area.
- When you have some free time, take a look at the Manual of Style and Policies and Guidelines. They can come in very handy!
- Remember to use a neutral point of view!
- If you need any help, feel free to post a question at the Help Desk
- Explore, be bold in editing pages, and, most importantly, have fun!
Also, here are some odds and ends that I find useful from time to time:
- Wikipedia:Policy Library
- Wikipedia:Cite your sources
- Wikipedia:Conflict resolution
- Wikipedia:Brilliant prose
- Wikipedia:Pages needing attention
- Wikipedia:Peer review
- Wikipedia:Bad jokes and other deleted nonsense
- Wikipedia:Village pump
- Wikipedia:Boilerplate text

The vandal seems to have stopped now, but if it occurs again in future you can get a quick response by filing a report at Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism, or WP:AIV for short (I am not an admin). Oldelpaso 10:13, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
St. Joseph's Nudgee College
Hi Peter Eedy! You recently removed a section from the St. Joseph's Nudgee College article referring to it as unencyclopedic and it was an 'allegation'. Can you please explain your actions? It appears as vandalism as the section meets WP:CS and WP:NOTABLE. Please either reply on my talk page or yours as soon as possible. Cheers JRA_WestyQld2 Talk 04:13, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
The section referred to a person who "accused" and then added the assertion that four others had suicided. The other matter noted that "a report ... stated". All items had the appearance of allegations (yet to be proven?).
I concede that these are horrendous allegations, but just didn't see their relevance in an encyclopaedic entry about a school.
I add that have nothing whatsoever to do with the Nudgee College -- I was just following some links about GPS sport.
As for your suggestion of vandalism, if you care to visit my other contributions to Wikipedia you will see that I am a considered contributor
Regards (and good luck with your baseball)
- Hey Pete! I think you've slightly missed the point on the controversy section, it is not there to demean the school, it is simply there because it was an allegation made in the news that meets WP:NOTABLE, therefore doesn't even technically have to be true as long as it is covered by a 3rd party source. An example of this would be conspiracy theories (moon landing, aliens etc), because they are covered by 3rd party sources, they are notable enough to be mentioned. Many high profile schools have some type of link to a controversy section, one you may be familiar with because it is in the Brisbane area is Anglican Church Grammar School.
- Also I did not accuse you of vandalism, merely stated it appears to be vandalism, as I have many highly risk vandalism pages on my watchlist and it is not uncommon to have defamatory unreferenced material put on some of these pages, or whole sections removed because it helps represent a NPOV. I am in no way connected with St. Joseph's Nudgee College (or any school in Brisbane for that matter), so I help maintain a NPOV on these GPS articles that often peacock each other to self-promote the schools.
- I hope I have cleared up any confusion. Cheers JRA_WestyQld2 Talk 12:57, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
- Thanks JRA.
- I concede that the item may well meet Wikipedia criteria, but I still don't see much merit in its inclusion (at least in that form, as I will explain).
- When I first read it, my reaction was that it appeared more like tabloid journalism than the quality of information I would expect to find in a reference encyclopaedia (as well as appearing somewhat vindictive). I have now read the Churchie section and note that those allegations were actually proven. Notwithstanding this, I arrived at a similar view as I did with the Nudgee section: is this what I expect to find in an encyclopaedia?
- I suggest that a more appropriate approach would be along the lines of "The school was the subject of some controversy in 2008, with allegations of past sexual abuse (etc.)", together with links to the source material.
- I trust you will accommodate my 'old fart' view of life!
- Hello JRA -- I really had in mind significantly less information than you have provided in your recent edit, then relying on the referenced newspaper articles to flesh out the story (for those who really need to know more!).
- I stand by my original assertion that this degree of detail is not appropriate in an encyclopaedia, notwithstanding Wikipedia policies. However, I don't wish to continue to argue the merits of this matter if you feel so strongly about your approach.
Cheers for comments, happy to oblige to be honest I have an interest in football everywhere it’s played. I thought the Australian football categories needed a bit of a tidy up and came across article while categorising similar. Djln --Djln (talk) 12:11, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
License tagging for File:Soccer Team Brisbane ca 1870.JPG
Thanks for uploading File:Soccer Team Brisbane ca 1870.JPG. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.
For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 03:06, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
Lead section History of association football (soccer) in Brisbane, Queensland
I removed the Overview heading because it was actually a good lead section. The article is quite detailed and informative but the headings are too long. You probably want to look at becoming familiar with B class criteria to help progress the article. I find the more different articles you edit, the more you interact with other editors and the more you learn about improving articles. Keep up the good work. - Shiftchange (talk) 12:06, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Hi. In History of association football in Brisbane, Queensland, you recently added a link to the disambiguation page Brisbane Botanic Gardens (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
Orphaned non-free image File:Bardon Latrobe Logo.gif
Thanks for uploading File:Bardon Latrobe Logo.gif. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Brisbane meetup with Sue Gardner invitation

Hi there! You are cordially invited to a meetup on 11 Febrary 2013 with Sue Gardner.
Hi there! I'm dropping you this notice as you've indicated on your userpage that you're a Wikipedian in the Brisbane area. Assuming significant interest, I'm organising an event for August 22 at the SLQ Café in South Brisbane, and we'd love for you to come along. A list of people interested in coming, and a discussion space has been created at Wikipedia:Meetup/Brisbane/8. Hope to see you there! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 10:39, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Trove citations - the easy way
I notice you are using Trove citations to the digitised newspapers (which is great) but it looks like you are adding them the "hard way". If you are looking at anything in Trove, you should see somewhere on the screen a "Cite" button (top left area of screen on the newspaper articles). Click on Cite and then (if necessary) scroll down to the bottom of the pop-up box where you will see a pre-formatted Wikipedia citation. Copy it and then click on where you want the citation in the Wikipedia article (assuming you are already in edit mode) and then click the "open book with red bookmark" in your Wikipedia-edit toolbar and then paste in the pre-formatted citation and then click Insert. It is a much faster and easier way to create a Trove citation. It is not just the newspapers in Trove that have these pre-formatted citations but also Trove's books, photos, etc all have these Wikipedia citations (the position of the Cite button varies but it's always there somewhere). Just to demonstrate I replaced the first Trove citation in Bardon Latrobe FC with a pre-formatted one (I'm not suggesting you should replace the existing ones), see this difference report. Any questions, please ask. Kerry (talk) 01:12, 21 October 2015 (UTC)
