Proposed deletion of Top 100 New Zealand Songs of All Time[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Top 100 New Zealand Songs of All Time has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This is a list that a) already exists elsewhere online, and b) implies that is the "definitive" Top 100 New Zealand Songs of All Time -- a falsity. No reason to include this list on-wiki -- practically just a big ad for "Nature's Best" -- an external link is fine.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles 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 article 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. Theopolisme 23:10, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Fair call on the name being inappropriate, could change that to be related to Nature's Best. The problem is that there is no place online that officially has it (I'll be damned if I can find it on APRA, the only two listings are a personal blog and a Christchurch library!). It's frequently referred to in relation to songs as well, which makes checking difficult (e.g. how do you tell a song was voted #33 when the track listing on Nature's Best 2 here starts from 1 again? Or what of interviewers saying that Dave Dobbyn contributed to 10% of the list?) I could merge it in with the main article, but need to figure out how to do it best. The list is separate from the CDs as far as I know.

Vickytnz (talk) 23:24, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Hm - so if it's not online, where might you have found it? Theopolisme 23:28, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

It was available on the DVD release (not quite sure how to cite it), and has been put up by the Christchurch library on their site and one person on their own personal site, but not in any format that's of any real use. You can mash it together from the listings of the 3 CDs as well, but it's not easy. I could drop it at the bottom of the main article, but the Top 100 vote does exist independently of the CDs. Vickytnz (talk) 23:33, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

I'm off to dinner now - will be back with some insightful commentary momentarily. Theopolisme 23:34, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Cool. The primary issue is that the Nature's Best page, for all it says about the 100 songs, never actually says what they are or links to anything with it (none of the citations have anything, for the reasons I gave above)! That was why I set the list up. Vickytnz (talk) 23:41, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Could I make the article the APRA 100 New Zealand Songs of all Time, move some of the information from the selection process over to that, and then allow Nature's Best to be a more pure description of the album? Vickytnz (talk) 23:45, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Please rename the article to APRA Top 100 New Zealand Songs, I've found an Australian equivalent on the site http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/APRA_Top_30_Australian_songs so it makes sense to align it with that. Vickytnz (talk) 00:59, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Oh, and I've changed the copy to be more about the voting and made the list less obviously Nature's Best! Vickytnz (talk) 01:01, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Good work! Let me know if there's ever anything else I can help with. Theopolisme 21:39, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Never mind, done it :) I've removed the deletion notice as I believe I've addressed it (though obv if you check and feel it's not the case then flag it). Vickytnz (talk) 01:59, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi Vickytnz. I saw your comment over at the Ada Lovelace Day page and wanted to point you to Victorian Honour Roll of Women which has a number of engineers and scientists. Cheers, Gobōnobō + c 14:10, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Cool, will do a bit of work on the Jeremijenko page (needs it anyhow) and then look at those. Will have to investigate as to whether there's an NZ equivalent! Vickytnz (talk) 14:16, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Jean-Dominique Bauby, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page French (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

Contacting Editors from the Ada Lovelace Editathons[edit]

Hi Vickytnz,

I hope you don’t mind me contacting you via your talk page. I’m a new Editor to Wikipedia, part of a small research team based at the University of Birmingham in the UK. I’m getting in touch as we’re trying to contact all the Editors who were involved in the Ada Lovelace Editathons in Oxford or London. If you have been, or still are, involved in editing, whatever the scale of your involvement, we would be very grateful for the opportunity to talk to you about your experiences. In the first instance, we’ve set up a short (10 minute) survey, which you can access via my User Talk Pages. If you are interested in helping with our research project, please can you drop me a line?

Thanks, RuthPage (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 08:47, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

New Challenge for Oceania and Australia[edit]

Hi, Wikipedia:WikiProject Oceania/The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Australia/The 5000 Challenge are up and running based on Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge which has currently produced over 2300 article improvements and creations. The Australia challenge would feed into the wider region one and potentially New Zealand could have a smaller challenge too. The main goal is content improvement, tackling stale old stubs and important content and improving sourcing/making more consistent but new articles are also welcome if sourced. I understand that this is a big goal for regular editors, especially being summertime where you are, but if you'd like to see large scale quality improvements happening for Oceania and Australia like The Africa Destubathon, which has produced over 1700 articles in 5 weeks, sign up on the page. The idea will be an ongoing national editathon/challenge for the region but fuelled by a series of contests to really get articles on every province and subject mass improved. The Africa contest scaled worldwide would naturally provide great benefits to Oceania countries, particularly Australia and attract new editors. I would like some support from existing editors here to get the Challenges off to a start with some articles to make doing a Destubathon worthwhile and potentially bring about hundreds of improvements in a few weeks through a contest!
