{DelanyBB (talk) 15:15, 12 January 2016 (UTC)} Hi Jarrah Tree - thanks for feedback. I had to create another account, because I didn't register first time with an email address and then got locked out of it, so had to create another account with a verified email. All photos uploaded have CC sharealike licences. Perhaps I'm not attributing properly and you can advise. thanks

Eremophila etc.[edit]

Hello JarrahTree,

Thanks for your latest. It's sometimes a bit hard to follow what you mean but I think there are 3 parts:

1. Distributions: I think you mean I need to work out a better way of describing distributions. For some like Eremophila eversa it's easy - I generally refer to the biogeographic regions listed in FloraBase (same as IBRA?) For others, like Eremophila exilifolia which are widespread, it's much harder - I would prefer not to list 10 regions where it occurs. Ideally, I would have a map but that either involves copying the FloraBase map (which is probably okay but tedious) or constructing one myself. I've tried and failed at that (also labour intensive). In the case of E. exilifolia, perhaps Eremaean province might be a good idea. Anyway, I'll work on that. (Knowing someone is actually reading the stuff I write is an inspiration. I'll try harder.)

Yep - understand now and agree 100%. I've noticed some of your work in this area.

2. Chinnock's monograph: I think you can buy it - I bought it a couple of months ago. Lots of on-line bookshops have it. It's a big book! Nearly 700 pages ~ $85.00. I rely on it heavily so I'm hoping listing it on every page might encourage people to buy it. Some pages are available in on-line previews. When I add a hyperlink to one of those pages, someone always takes it away. Not sure how to solve that one.

I'm broke too - thanks to Chinnock and co.

3. Poverty bush/emubush: I agree - too many species with the same name. In general, I'm using Brown and Buirchell "Guide to the Eremophilas of Western Australia" for common names. It's also a beautiful book (~$35) with 3 photographs for most of the W.A. species. Not sure how to solve this problem either. Any suggestions?

I try to avoid the temptation to list all the common names. APNI lists about 11 for Eremophila abietina

All the best to you - stay cool. Gderrin (talk) 02:02, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

BTW - looking forward to going west in spring to get some eremophila pics!

Thanks for the invite - definitely take you up on that. Can you also lend me a Landcruiser? Looking to about August. Cheers! Gderrin (talk) 09:45, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 6[edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg
Newsletter • January 2016

Hello there! Happy to be writing this newsletter once more. This month:

What comes next

Some good news: the Wikimedia Foundation has renewed WikiProject X. This means we can continue focusing on making WikiProjects better.

During our first round of work, we created a prototype WikiProject based on two ideas: (1) WikiProjects should clearly present things for people to do, and (2) The content of WikiProjects should be automated as much as possible. We launched pilots, and for the most part it works. But this approach will not work for the long term. While it makes certain aspects of running a WikiProject easier, it makes the maintenance aspects harder.

We are working on a major overhaul that will address these issues. New features will include:

  • Creating WikiProjects by simply filling out a form, choosing which reports you want to generate for your project. This will work with existing bots in addition to the Reports Bot reports. (Of course, you can also have sections curated by humans.)
  • One-click button to join a WikiProject, with optional notifications.
  • Be able to define your WikiProject's scope within the WikiProject itself by listing relevant pages and categories, eliminating the need to tag every talk page with a banner. (You will still be allowed to do that, of course. It just won't be required.)

The end goal is a collaboration tool that can be used by WikiProjects but also by any edit-a-thon or group of people that want to coordinate on improving articles. Though implemented as an extension, the underlying content will be wikitext, meaning that you can continue to use categories, templates, and other features as you normally would.

This will take a lot of work, and we are just getting started. What would you like to see? I invite you to discuss on our talk page.

Until next time,

Your insights about Guy Grey-Smith Reply[edit]

Hi JarrahTree, Thank you again for your edits of Guy Grey-Smith, especially the solid citation of awards. It's a boon to have people with personal knowledge of artists, such as that which you clearly have, editing their pages. I hope we and others can add to the article more evidence of Guy's contribution to modernism in Australia, and/or more specifically to Western Oz. Don't let WP get in the way of writing about your experiences in the artists' group house...we should be careful not to let such knowledge slip away unpreserved! All the best, James sinarau (talk) 04:43, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

Re: Meetup[edit]

Yep, I noticed that. :-) Graham87 06:14, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

And I just noticed the edit summary accompanying your message ... "oh dear" is right! Graham87 16:13, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Crop image[edit]

Hello friend, I think while I was cropping this image from the original one, I may have missed a spot. This is the image (left hand side is a long thin rectangle of white), any chance you could crop it since you're an admin? I'm not familiar with commons so I thought someone such as yourself would know more. Cheers, Burklemore1 (talk) 06:20, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Edit summaries are forever[edit]
