"Unsourced" clarification request[edit]

You removed an edit on the Redbank Plains State High School Page [1] stating that the edit was unsourced, could you clarify how you feel that the change is unsourced? I included a citation to the novel and the exact page that the edit referred to, which fits the reliable source requirements [2] Is there something else required? — Preceding unsigned comment added by AuthorAhTea (talkcontribs) 23:22, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

Better source request for File:Harry Seidler with model.jpg[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 03:09, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Blackheath[edit]

Noting that Harry seidler is still needing a citation
And "please be bold and replace the "Citation needed" template with enough information to locate the source."
I would've thought a link to all the pages would be sufficient. Why haven't you been bold and deleted the un-refed paragraph? --Dave Rave (talk) 13:54, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Are you talking about File:Harry_Seidler_with_model.jpg and a request for more information? If you are then I don't have any more information to add. I contacted someone at his firm (18 months later I am not sure exactly who this was) letting them know I was from Wikipedia and they gave me permission to use the image they supplied. If I recall correctly there was a short delay while they contacted the photographer for permission. I just noticed that the summary description includes the name Eric Sierins. His attribution might mean its not a generic link to a website as the source. If someone is going to to delete it because they want better source information and don't have it, then it really isn't anything to do with me. I didn't remove the template because it says only to do so if more information is provided. Why did you choose Blackheath as the title for this? - Shiftchange (talk) 21:59, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Blackheath,_New_South_Wales&curid=405043&action=history --Dave Rave (talk) 00:17, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
What you provided is a list of web links not a citation. You didn't provide a unique source of information which supports the preceding statement. The claim has been challenged and still requires a reference. - Shiftchange (talk) 00:36, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
a list of links, 9 on the first page, of which anyone of them would have been sufficient for a citation. Instead of doing a little copy editing, you deleted the lot and left the paragraph vulnerable again to citation deletion. Being bold isn't being negative. --Dave Rave (talk) 01:20, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
You seem significantly concerned about this to take the time to repeat yourself here but not to add a citation to Blackheath, New South Wales. Your attempt to add a citation was undoubtedly inadequate. If you want to make sure Bradman's achievements on the pitch at Blackheath are not removed from the article then you need to provide a citation to a reliable source which supports the claim. That is what every single other editor is required to do. I add citations on an almost daily basis. In fact for every five main space edits of mine I most probably add at least four references. I would never consider adding a bare url for one and never pretend a google search list result is a citation. Nor would I expect another editor to clean up my sloppy contributions. If you must know, I loathe cricket and have no interest in spending time on the matter. - Shiftchange (talk) 05:30, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Photo of Atkinsons Dam[edit]

The lake/dam/locality are in Somerset Region rather than Lockyer Valley. Kerry (talk) 05:44, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Kingaroy Peanut Silos[edit]

Oops, sorry. that article was not meant to exist. I was just testing it in Preview to see how well my automated process was coming along and it seems I accidentally hit Save at some point. It's not yet at a standard to go live so I have blanked it. I have noted the photos you added though for later re-insertion when the article really can go live. Let me know if you see me make any more QHR articles before I've let you know I'm going live with them. Kerry (talk) 20:19, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Conrad Gargett[edit]

Hi Shiftchange, I'm Brisarch. Also in Brisbane, and I note you have made some contributions to architecture related articles. Being relatively inexperienced on wikipedia I was wondering if you would mind looking at the Conrad Gargett Riddel Ancher Mortlock Woolley article I created. It has had a "WP:PROMOTION" tag placed on it despite my intended rigor with wikipedia protocols. Main focus of article intended to be notable role/history of firm in Brisbane history. Thanks, Brisarch (talk) 00:55, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your prompt review and comments. I will be sure incorporate your suggestions in future refinement of the article. Brisarch (talk) 02:14, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Photos[edit]

Thank you for all your efforts taking photos for Queensland towns and heritage places - it makes so much of a difference to those articles. The Drover's Wife (talk) 04:36, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

My pleasure - still more for city sites and localities to the north of Toowoomba, to be uploaded and added to the pages asap. The Toowoomba run has been successful but I can do better. The auto-focus on the camera isn't getting the best results or else my hands are too shaky. Also since the city was heritage dense and because I had to devote effort to creating new articles for the places we were passing through on the way home I wasn't able to plan a specific route through the inner city, nor read up about each of these sites. If I was more familiar with the sites I would aim for specific features mentioned in the article as well as a general infobox photo. I think Kerry is moving towards Ipswich in the roll-out. Ipwsich is like Toowoomba, a stack of heritage sites near each other. In that case any drive will be passing through places already created so I will not have to do that work. While I enjoy learning about the history of the Darling Downs, sites a closer to home will be significantly more interesting for me to read about. We can them have more photos down the page highlighting architecture and bits and pieces. - Shiftchange (talk) 04:55, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Did you get the image name right on Tawa, Toowoomba? That...does not look like a house ;) The Drover's Wife (talk) 03:41, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the reminder. - Shiftchange (talk) 04:09, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Gabbinbar and QHR article reviews[edit]

Hey, can you make sure these articles have at a minimum been checked as to whether they're up to date (and preferably have a bit of a lede) before pulling them out of the review category? The Gabbinbar article, amongst other things, currently says it's unoccupied and run-down when a Google search makes clear that it's now a very well maintained function venue. The Drover's Wife (talk) 06:42, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

I wasn't going to do that. I was just checking that the incorporation of text from the Queensland Heritage Register was done to an acceptable level. - Shiftchange (talk) 07:55, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
I think we need to be doing a bit better than this - Kerry is picking up all the basics when she transfers the articles over, and so we can be pretty sure that the basic incorporation of text is going to be fine, but at this point, besides tidying and wikifying the bot text, I see the main point of the review category being to make sure we're not winding up in the long term with a whole bunch of (at times very) outdated articles (which we do have now) - otherwise there's not much point having it.

2010–11 Queensland floods: Difference between revisions[edit]

I saw you reverted my edit on 2010–11 Queensland floods. I was surprised to discover I had inserted the word butt for cloud during the edit. I think I know the culprit. I'm using the Chome Cloud-to-butt plugin and it seems to have (not so) helpfully inserted the change. Robert Brockway (talk) 15:52, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

my notifications and watchlist[edit]

It is all explained by seeing your recent eds, I wondered what the ---- was happening for a moment. There were some very very odd parts to the notifications... so few eds in the last 5 years it is very weird seeing you and rangas editing tassie things, more power to you both! we need more work. beware the trogolodytes. JarrahTree 10:33, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Not weird, just unexpected. Most of my editing is now on Queensland-related articles but if I see a major problem or omission elsewhere I will tend to it. Yes, many of the Tasmania articles are rough around the edges. Parliament of Tasmania is particularly poorly but so is the fact that we have a cleanup backlog going back nearly 9 years. - Shiftchange (talk) 19:32, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi shiftchange. Not exactly sure where I am at the moment but I responding (positively) to your modifications to the Popran Valley site.

Mount Archer[edit]

It seems Qld has two Mount Archers (as mountains) and two Mount Archers as suburbs/localities. And at the moment they are all somewhat randomly linked by other articles. Should we go with the name Mount Archer, Queensland (Somerset Region) and Mount Archer, Queensland (Rockhampton Region) to adequately disambiguate each pair of locality and mountain? I am not sure we have enough material on any of them to split the locality and mountain at this point. Your thoughts? Kerry (talk) 01:43, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

I think you have it, combine the mountain and locality article. Maybe Mount Archer for disambiguation, Mount Archer, Queensland (Somerset Region) for the locality and mountain, Mount Archer, Queensland (Rockhampton Region) for the locality and mountain and Mount Archer National Park as it is. I've never been sure if its correct to use that method but it aligns with how you have done it the past. - Shiftchange (talk) 04:12, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
I didn't notice the national park article, but yes, I think it's fine as is. I'll start implementing the rest. Kerry (talk) 08:31, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
I think I have implemented it and tidied up all the links to point to the correct one, set up a disambig page, etc. Let me know if I've missed something or fix it yourself. Thanks Kerry (talk) 21:57, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

List of G:link stations[edit]

Hi Swiftchange. I noticed a recent edit you made to List of G:link stations. You added 1 wikilink to Cavill Avenue but that article covers the pedestrian mall and not the G:link station. Could you please explain why you added the wikilink? Should I also add wikilinks to Gold Coast University Hospital, Griffith University and Broadwater Parklands? Should I also add wikilinks to Southport, Southport South, Main Beach, Surfers Paradise North, Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach North and Broadbeach South? Thank you, New9374 (talk) 04:21, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi Swiftchange, I invite you to please join the discussion with Kerry on the FLC page to decide the threshold for inclusion including whether or not to include wikilink Cavill Avenue. Thank you, New9374 (talk) 08:20, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
Hi Swiftchange, I have removed the attractions and the wikilink Cavill Avenue from the List of G:link stations article. I have instead created a new Route section within the main G:link article which details the line, its stops and the attractions served. This is similar to the nineteen already featured lists of stations and the good article Bergen Light Rail. I invite you to share your thoughts on the FLC page.

>>Brick at Winton article[edit]

Shiftchange, you obviously haven't given the "intricate detail" in the history section of the Winton, Queensland article very much thought. All together, it does paint a very clear picture of a place that not many people in the world are highly likely ever to see, and how it came to be the way it is now. By the way, I spent quite a bit of time and effort trying to plough up from old newspapers in the NLA's Trove any scrap of Winton's history. That wasn't easy, but I wanted to make the town's history as complete as it could be. Now, Winton is quite an historic place for a little town in Central West Queensland. In the early days, when Robert Allen, William Henry Corfield, Robert Fitzmaurice and Thomas Lynett showed up to found the place, the new town's (if it could even have been called one back then) direction was changed by almost every newcomer who showed up. Bear in mind, too, that Winton is a little town even now, and so its history is bound to hinge on events that would seem unimportant to somebody living in a big place like Brisbane. Perhaps you've never lived in a small town? Perhaps if you did, you didn't care much about its history? I can understand that some people might not be interested in Australia's pioneering history, and so it matters little to them that the artesian bore was completed in 1896, but of course, that was a huge event in the town itself, even if it was long ago, far away, and of little consequence to a Canadian on the other side of the world who has never even seen the town (I mean me). What is your reason for believing that the history "may only interest a specific audience"? It's a general history of a little town, about the people, economic activity, politics, events, milestones, disasters, and so on and so on and so on. It doesn't dwell on any particular aspect of Winton's history that would only interest certain readers who wanted to know about the town's past, and it is arranged in straightforward chronological order – I was most careful about that – linked where possible to other events in Australia and the world. The "intricate detail" is what a town's history is all about. I would actually like to expand it, not shrink it, if only I could find out more about Winton's history.

Could you please state your whys and wherefores for placing that brick in the article on the article's Talk page, please? Thank you. Kelisi (talk) 06:22, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Could you sign the second section of this post please, ie ":So improper editorial synthesis. ... ... So how about? ... 'The review found that ...' ". This would make the discussion easier to follow.

Meaning of {{Wiki | class = Start vs. C | |importance=low|USGov=yes|USGov-importance=}}[edit]

What's the meaning of {{WikiProject United States|class=Start|importance=low|USGov=yes|USGov-importance=}}, and how does that change when "Start" is replaced by "C", as you just did on Talk:Voter suppression in the United States?

Also, how can I find information on what this means?

Thirdly, what can be done to make it easier to find such information?

I've averaged close to one edit per day since 2010, and I still don't know how to find things like this.

it might not seem clear[edit]

but I was trying to segment big groups of coal mines and coal mining articles across australia

but get held up by dicky computer and a few other things

the reasoning (in case it doesnt show) with text in the main space explaining

is x mines in y state - mines; all other things to do with x mining - mining.

It probably isnt so clear at the moment as i am not even half way through the first few of qld coal mines...

it probably all looks a mess - but in the end it will make sense. JarrahTree 01:08, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

the ultimate goal is to get mines out of the amorphous mines - into either/and type - copper etc, and also region -

as it is mines in q...

and for rest of oz - each state - i think it is long past x mines in oz JarrahTree 01:59, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

Yeppers. Go for it. Good job. Some mines lack location (or lga or region), establishment year and type (surface mine, undergroup) categories as well. - Shiftchange (talk) 02:29, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
thanks so much for your help - and yes where there is insufficient info re where/etc perhaps that raises other questions as to the veracity of the article... JarrahTree 05:52, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
Because of global heating all these thermal coal mines are going to have to close much quicker than their mining lifecycle forecast. These stranded assets will create some controversy over the next decade so the importance of these articles will increase. I suspect the coal mine shutdown will occur around 2030. It just disgusts me that the state with the most national parks has the most mines and so much electricity generated by coal and then abominations like the Carmichael coal mine. - Shiftchange (talk) 06:02, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
just as a btw - we have lost some eds in last 18 months or so who were good keeping up with mines and things arts - just simple maintenance and updating of arts seems to be a lost skill in the oz project JarrahTree 06:19, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
Yes. I see it in the lack of regulars in my watchlist. WikiProject Queensland's cleanup template rate has declined from a rate of 30% to 20%, however that is probably mostly attributed to the WikiProject Queensland's expansion by Kerry's 1,000+ QHR articles. You do know the masses are never coming to help? I think its just a continuation of the decline in WikiProject Australia from its 2007 peak. Its just such a large country with so few editors. Poor governance from Wikimedia Australia doesn't help. Kerry's failed conference may fostered some cohesion but it was rejected. Also the WikiProject activity hasn't distributed to state or city projects as far as I can tell. My watchlist has blown out so I can't keep as good as eye on articles as I used to either. Some tasks can so be time-consuming now so much of the long hanging fruit work is gone. My edit rate is declining on a yearly basis but I ain't going anywhere. How about yourself? As the core group of Australian editors declines from the thousands to the hundreds (or fewer) are you going to be here? - Shiftchange (talk) 07:11, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
for some complex and also simple reasons I cannot reply on wiki adequately - re your comments - but hey I havent gone yet! hang in there!! JarrahTree 07:23, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

Talk on tropical trance[edit]

Please expound your view of why it is as you put it not an established genre. I have a few references leading to Tropical trance and you tell me it's not an established genre, why? 120.147.37.23 (talk) 04:33, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Proposal for a page[edit]

Dear Shiftchange,

As previously you have contributed to Wikipedia in regards to financial articles, would you, please, consider writing an article on Creamfinance? It is a global financial services company that provides personal finance products in emerging markets. The company was ranked as the second fastest-growing company in Europe in 2016. Creamfinance is employing over 220 people and operating in 7 countries both within and outside of Europe – Latvia, Poland, Czech Republic, Georgia, Denmark and Mexico with an IT office in Austria.

I believe it corresponds to the Wikipedia notability rules as it has been talked about in legitimate third party sources: [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11]

If you wish I have put together a first draft for the page and can send it you.

According to Wikipedia guidelines I want to underline that I am a Project Manager at Golin Riga and I have been approached by Creamfinance to help with their representation on Wikipedia. Aozolins-golin-riga (talk) 14:28, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for the request. I would not be interested in helping you or a financial services company with their "representation on Wikipedia". As others have suggested just draft an article yourself and follow up on the response after creation or submission. - Shiftchange (talk) 00:02, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
