IWW anti-conscription poster[edit]

Hi. I'm a Permissions Assistant for Cambridge University Press searching for a higher res copy of the IWW anti-conscription poster you uploaded in May 2006 [1]. The image is intended for inclusion in a secondary school History textbook. I would really appreciate it if you had any ideas as to where I might find a high quality copy. Thanks!

Re: WorkChoices[edit]

I've returned some obvious parts, but I don't really have time just now to come to a conclusion about the rest. I would think, however, that the "Debate and reaction" has a legitimate place in the article. Regards, --cj | talk 12:32, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Melbourne meetup 6[edit]

Hi. This is a reminder to people on the Melbourne meetup participation list that the next meetup has been arranged for 19 June. Could you indicate on the meetup page your likely attendence, or otherwise. Regards. - Cuddy Wifter 23:23, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Sydney Push refs revisited[edit]

Howdy, Takver. Time to restore your essential documentation at Sydney Push. (Have done). Btw, I also inserted into Lillian Roxon the interesting ASIO furphy about this Packer-Murdoch writer's having been seen as a communist sympathiser. Can you say who the narrator of that (2001)piece [2] is, please? Incidentally, I removed some unlinked names from the Push list (and added some linked ones). They can be replaced when there are Wiki articles on them. Wendy Bacon is a glaring omission. I met her a few times but she was a fairly late arrival on the scene, and I left Sydney in 1975. (I seem to remember that she had a fling with Brian Raven, but maybe that's not right!) I don't remember Sasha Soldatow but her stuff looks spot-on. Incidentally, I have hard copies of all the references I myself have cited (and more besides). Cheers --Bjenks 02:15, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Bob_hunter_1941-2005_cofounder_of_greenpeace.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Bob_hunter_1941-2005_cofounder_of_greenpeace.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MER-C 10:22, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject Brisbane[edit]

Just a reminder that WikiProject Brisbane needs your help. There have been a number of changes to the project page over recent days and I hope you could spare some time to take a look, be bold and add some touches yourself.

There is plenty that needs to be done to get more Brisbane articles up to FA standard. Please come and discuss this and lets see if we can build up this project.

Slim Dust Plaque Tarcutta[edit]

Hi, I think the photo you uploaded about the Slim Dusty Plaque in Tarcutta has been deleted for some reason. Are you aware of this and if you are i will delete it altogether because at the moment on the Tarcutta page it doesn't look quite good. Hopefully you can sort this out.

Photo of Mounted Police in Brunswick[edit]

Sorry, I posted this in the wrong place. To re-iterate my question on the photo of the mounted police in the Brunswick, Australia page. I left some comments on imagetalk regarding the photo of the mounted police outside the Sarah Sands. Where did you obtain that image? My family has copies of this, in an Argus article describing the event as the march of Orangemen, not the unemployed. Paddyrat (talk) 11:32, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Deleted Photographs[edit]

I have deleted these three images as they are solely photographs of logos, you are unable to release them under a free license as they are copyright of the company/organisation. Gnangarra 15:24, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Tas arts[edit]

Please help tassie arts by including tas project in the talk page project tags - thanks SatuSuro 13:00, 18 October 2008 (UTC) and thanks for help with the Round Earth/Theatre co art - it needed help - I hope to catch up with richard in december i have known him since 1972 :( SatuSuro 13:19, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Glad to help. I enjoyed the day tour guide of Sarah Island, and the play was informative and fun when I saw them working on two levels for both children and adults - not always easy to do. There are lots of web references to the play, but very few high quality secondary sources. Maybe there are some printed references we can use? I have been adding various Tasmanian articles building upon information gathered on a quick holiday there in Sept-Oct. --Takver (talk) 13:58, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

I hope to raid a second hand bookshop that I know in hobart to dig up old ephemera to do with theatre in tassie - very little ever gets reprinted or out of tassie - I was on the periphery of the early puppet scene in mid 70's hobart and have lived on the west coast in the past i have xxx's of photos i have not scanned yet from my time on the west coast - reliable sources on richard/round earth are not online i dont know if i will catch up with him - maybe i have to beg to borrow a 70's 80's press cutting scrap book from him :( - re the play my kids saw it in early 2000's and enjoyed it as well - unfortunately i will have little time over the next three months as i will be otherwise occupied - oh well next year for my tas additions on the large scale SatuSuro 14:06, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah thanks for your help - i reckon those boring tags had been there too long - cheers SatuSuro 14:26, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

P11 Kasparov Breakout IFD[edit]

I notice you !voted to keep on this IFD because you said the image had been released under a free license. Unfortunately, it has not — IBM's permission extends only to use on Wikipedia (and this has been verified by an OTRS user) — so the image must meet the non-free content criteria. As a result, the image is likely to be deleted unless a valid fair use claim is made out. You may wish to return to this discussion to clarify your !vote. Stifle (talk) 12:55, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Well done and dont get offended if i correct mainlanders mistakes :) - every now and then SatuSuro 11:59, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! Me, make mistakes? Well, sometimes just to prove I'm human (and from the mainland). I keep joking I'll one day move to Tassie, as I keep moving south through my life and that is the next stage in the progression. ;)

Proposed deletion of Arweet[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Arweet, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

per WP:NOTDICT

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 21:48, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Dja Dja Wurrung[edit]

My you have been busy! I've been enjoying reading your additions to wikipedia. I was thinking only the other day that someone should create some of the very articles you have been working on (Franklinford etc). I take it you are about to do an article on John Hepburn. I look forward to reading it when you do. I have been into reading a bit of early history around the central Victoria region as I was from Daylesford originally (now in Brisbane). I just finished Frontier Life in the Loddon Protectorate by Edgar Morrison. I would like to get a hold of his earlier work some time. Anyhow, keep up the great work.--Sting Buzz Me... 01:15, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Just reading the Franklinford article and see no mention of the area being part of Mollisons Coliban Run? Parker located his station there as Shepherds had constructed an outstation. These links might be of interest to you? Central Vic squatters DAYLESFORD & DISTRICT A Short History by Norm Darwin. I think articles on all the early squatters are needed.--Sting Buzz Me... 01:40, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi, just to let you know, in de:WP we are 2 editors working on artices about aborigines at the moment. Currently I translate your artice on the Cape Grim Massacre. It is one of the best articles yet: well referenced, which seems to be one of the issues with many other articles.

Two 11 November 1975 images[edit]

Many thanks for your great images. I left a note on your commons user talk page, but will repeat here. At the FAC for the constitutional crisis article, a user has stated he would like to see an email sent to OTRS confirming permission (of course, you took them) for the images. You might want to do that, or you might want to comment at the FAC. I'll watchlist this page in anticipation of your respones.--Wehwalt (talk) 02:47, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. I have left an answer at [Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/1975 Australian constitutional crisis/archive1 the FAC]. I do not see the necessity for going through the OTRS procedure. The images were asserted as original works and correctly licenced at the time of upload. I have confirmed them as my original works.--Takver (talk) 10:23, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Victorian Aborigines[edit]

I notice when browsing, and coming across your Victorian Aborigines article (which I like) that the map of Victoria on that page has some spelling that is different to that of AIATSIS's map on Aboriginal Australia, which is the work of the Encyclopaedia of Aboriginal Australia. I realise you indicate that the map is a creation of two works, the text you sight and partially the AIATSIS. However I was wondering if the spelling on the map wouldn't benefit from the more authoritative source. If so I have the correct spelling; but would firstly like your opinion. And finding your Username now, I also find this article is up for deletion. Do you know why, and how that can be averted? 08:32, 31 October 2011 (UTC) Victorbyron (talk) 08:38, 31 October 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Victorbyron (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the comment on Victorian Aborigines. This page was speedy deleted in September as it had plagiarized content. I re-created the page using original content which I authored, including all relevant references. So the page is no longer subject to Deletion.
Regarding spelling of names on the Victorian aborigines map I used the spelling used in works by Professor Ian D. Clark. He is an authoritative source on aboriginal history in Victoria, with several publications to his name. I am not sure AIATSIS is necessarily more authoritative. Perhaps we can discuss either adding alternate names in the image description, or possibly adding to the image itself. We need to also ensure alternate names are used in articles about each people/language group, which is probably more important. I'm not on wikipedia every day, so drop me a msg to start the discussion. I suggest we keep the discussion in one place on my talk page. --Takver (talk) 01:34, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
Hi Takver, the premise of writing to you was based on your comment that you drew up the map, which in turn was derived from Clark's 1995 text and 'to a lesser degree' you utilised information from the Aboriginal Australian Map first pubished in 1996 by AIATSIS. This map was derived from the Encyclopaedia of Aboriginal Australia published in 1994. From my reading on the map (I've had my copy since 2001)the areas you are using are the same as those on the AIATSIS map, which are called 'groups and regions', i.e. 'language nation groups' of the Indigenous people of Australia. The map also provides a list of 'alternative names'. I compared the names you used with those on the map I have and there are several differences, just some by way of example are,(a) you have different spelling for some names than that provided on the map, e.g. 'Woi wurrung' is your spelling, while the map uses 'Woiworung'; your spelling 'Dja Dja wurrung', on the map is 'Djadjawurung', etc. The 'difference' is to approximately 50% of the 29 groups/regions on the Victorian map. You also extend 'Bindjali' righ down to the south, whereas the map only extends the 'Bindjali' group to about the same geographical south, in line with the 'Wergaia' to its east. On the map I'm using, the bottom half of the 'Bindjali' group is in 'grey' tone, with the explanation that there is no published information available for this area. This will be a good one to begin the verification process. In my view, there is no present evidence to indicate that AIATSIS/The Encyclopaedia of Aboriginal Australia should not be the definitive text on this matter. Neither is there evidence to suggest that Clark's work should not be the definitive text. I think this matter will take a bit of unscrambling. It's great to hear the deletion threat is no longer. I like the article. Right now I need to divert my attentin to some other work. But when I can I'll get back to you with some more research on the unscrambling. Thanks for being receptive to me discussing this with you. You are welcome to leave a message on my User page anytime you like on this subject.Victorbyron (talk) 06:30, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
The boundaries for the Buandig and Bindjali were based on the AIATSIS map when I drew the Victorian map. But I just checked the boundaries detailed in the text descriptions for the articles Buandig and Gunditjmara and there does seem to be a discrepancy between the descriptions and the maps. Which may mean the AIATSIS map and the Victorian map are both wrong. I suggest perhaps an email to Professor Clark to ask his advice on this might be the most expeditious way to clean things up. Let me know what you think about this idea.--Takver (talk) 07:49, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
Firstly, Tirin, my apology for not getting back to you sooner; life has been busy as for all of us, no doubt. You reasonably have a preference for verifying this matter with Professor Ian Clark. I have a preference for verifying with AIATSIS. I guess a cross-reference with both parties would be advisable and perhaps fruitful in the long run. I had been thinking my next step would be to go back to the source from whence my information came, i.e. AIATSIS; and that is what you also are indicating, i.e. from your source, which makes sense. So if you like we'll split the task, and get back with our findings, from our respective sources. And I can't promise to get this done post haste, but I do promise to get back to you. Cheers, Victorbyron (talk) 13:49, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:Bass Coast Rail Trail map.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading File:Bass Coast Rail Trail map.jpg.

This image is a derivative work, containing an "image within an image". Examples of such images would include a photograph of a sculpture, a scan of a magazine cover, or a screenshot of a computer game or movie. In each of these cases, the rights of the creator of the original image must be considered, as well as those of the creator of the derivative work.

While the image description page states the source and copyright status of the derivative work, it only names the creator of the original work without specifying the status of their copyright over the work.

Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the original image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other derivative works, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. Thanks again for your cooperation. Kelly hi! 22:13, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Bicycle Federation of Australia[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Bicycle Federation of Australia has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

A 2005 article with no references at all, sourced from the "External links", fails notability and verifiability policies and guidelines. Appears to be just indiscriminate content.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Melbourne Polytechnic logo.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Melbourne Polytechnic logo.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator seven days after the file was tagged in accordance with section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.

ATTENTION: This is an automated, bot-generated message. This bot DID NOT nominate any file(s) for deletion; please refer to the page history of each individual file for details. Thanks, FastilyBot (talk) 01:03, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
