{{helpme}} Rey fresco (talk) 12:20, 28 December 2009 (UTC) I need help on how to expand on my article Liawenee and make it not a stub and also find reliable sources

WP:WELCOME should give you links to all the information you could need. Thanks,  GARDEN  14:14, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

RE: Liawenee[edit]

For the climate you will need some thing like this to use as a cited source rather then just basing it on data/numbers (as you did here) as it's called original research. Also you may have created the article but it doesn't give you ownership of it. With http://www.australianweathernews.com/snow/Snow%20days%20descending.htm I would deem as unreliable as even the red note in the page states that it's not reliable. Bidgee (talk)

I was only stating just in-case you may have not known. ;) Nothing on the Bureau of Met on the climate nor has a Google search been of any help. You could look at a local library which may have some books on the history and may the climate if you're lucky. I have a resource (A regional library and archive) for my area (The Riverina district) but I just don't have the time to do the researching anymore! You may want to also checkout http://newspapers.nla.gov.au/ which has a large online archive (still growing) of newpapers dating from the 1800s to 1950s. Bidgee (talk) 12:40, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

RE: Photo Formating or Coding[edit]

Hey there - this guideline will go into more detail, but the essence of it is [[File:Example.jpg|thumb|right|250px|CAPTIONTEXTHERE]] where "Example.jpg" is the filename it has been uploaded to Wikipedia under and "CAPTIONTEXTHERE" is the caption text. If you plan to upload, please ensure it is free use (i.e. your own work or work released under Creative Commons) or, if copyrighted, it meets our fair use criteria. Thanks!  GARDEN  10:26, 29 December 2009 (UTC)


File copyright problem with File:Dovereagleseyeview.JPG[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Dovereagleseyeview.JPG. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. NickContact/Contribs 06:23, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

In reply to your message on my talk page: If you can provide me with a link to the website you got the image from, I'll try and figure it out for you. --NickContact/Contribs 00:45, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
The image actually comes from this page. Google images just indexes images from web pages all over the web. Taking a look at that website, I cannot find any statement of their copyright policy. Under Wikipedia policy (and U.S. law), images are assumed to be fully copyrighted unless the creator of the image specifically releases the image under a free license or into the public domain. The only suggestion I can give you would be to contact the operator of the website and inquire about releasing the article in such a way. Keep in mind though, many organizations are only willing to release an image under the terms that it be used for "non-commercial" or "educational" use only. Those types of releases are not acceptable on Wikipedia, as they are incompatible with the GFDL and CC-BY-SA 3.0, the licenses under which content on Wikipedia is released. Specific questions about this can always be brought up on the Media copyright questions page. --NickContact/Contribs 20:49, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
Since this site is the work of Australians it is automatically copyrighted (Much like the US), even without the copyright marks or policy on the site. When you see a file that was created in 1955 and onwards (IE: 2010) then unless it states that it's in the public domain or Creative Commons Attribution/ShareAlike (though be careful with some site as people can tend to rip off copyrighted work and claim it as there own) but if it was created before 1955 then it is in the public domain (Use {{PD-Australia}}, but also note that sites such as the National Archive of Australia, Victorian Archives ect will claim that it is copyrighted since they digitised the image however this is some thing that is being debated not just here in Australia but also a few other counties overseas).

Speedy deletion nomination of Chris slatter[edit]

Please refrain from introducing inappropriate pages, such as Chris slatter, to Wikipedia. Doing so is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
