William Street, Sydney copyright concern[edit]

I have removed content you added to the above article, as it appears to have been copied from http://dictionaryofsydney.org/entry/kings_cross, a copyright web page. While many of the pages on that website are released under a comptatible license, this particular page is not. The contnet will have to be re-written in your own words please. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you think I made a mistake. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 16:26, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

Notice of copy/paste move[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Dunghutti People a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Dunghutti. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thank you.

Copying licensed material requires proper attribution[edit]

It appears that you have added material to the article Office of Environment and Heritage (New South Wales) using content from http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/whoweare/structure.htm. While you are welcome to re-use licensed content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original author(s). When copying from other compatibly-licensed web pages, please at minimum mention in an edit summary at the new page where you got the content. It's also a good idea to place a note on the article along with your citation. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied licensed material before, even if it was a long time ago, please go back and provide attribution. Please leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 23:40, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Bonze, use as as reference[edit]

My impresssion about 5 to 6 years ago was that Bonzle was looked upon as a not usable and blacklisted - any thoughts? JarrahTree

Dare I ask, any references to such a claim? Rangasyd (talk) 04:13, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
thing is nobody checks anything anymore in the oz project you could almost create a whole subject with pages and the chances of getting away with it ..
If you cannot find it yourself by a simple search dont believe me :) JarrahTree 04:19, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
I had a quick look at both {{WP Australia}} and WP:WikiProject Australian places and there was no (black)listing. A Google search is inconclusive. Hence, my question to provide me with a link to the blacklisting. Thanks. Rangasyd (talk) 04:25, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for looking - I remember there were some edit clashes with a south african editor of usage with western and south australian railway items - but that is maybe even as long as 7 or 8 years ago - so best to ignore my concern at this stage, I do not think it would be easy to find. Maybe it didnt become a fixed blacklist item. sorry to have bothered. JarrahTree 07:34, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
A pleasure. If you find it, please let me know. Happy editing. Rangasyd (talk) 07:41, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
