Queensland Day[edit]

An IP editor has recently gone to this article and made a couple of edits to it, replacing the list of Queenslanders of the Year, which they claimed was inaccurate, with a list of recipients of the ‎Queensland Greats Awards. I asked for help fixing the table on the help desk, and Murph9000, who assisted me, wondered if the original table was worth re-adding as it goes back to 1981. If anyone thinksit should be re-added, either in whole or in part, feel free to put it back; as I said at the help desk thread, I know almost nothing about this subject, being from the other side of the country and all.

They're both genuine awards, although "Queensland Australian of the Year" is managed by the federal government and not announced on Queensland Day as far as I am aware. That being said I'm not sure if the "Queensland Greats" awards are so important that they require being listed in detail on the page; I'm about as parochial a Queenslander as you're likely to find and I'd never heard of them until now.

List of Brisbane Roar FC players at FLRC[edit]

I have nominated List of Brisbane Roar FC players for featured list removal here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets the featured list criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks; editors may declare to "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here.--Cheetah (talk) 06:51, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

Speedy move[edit]

There is a speedy move request for Category:VFL/AFL players to Category:Australian Football League players. I'm not sure how I feel about this. Hawkeye7 (talk) 05:07, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

Iron or iron ore?[edit]

Australians editors are invited to comment on the proposed, and currently opposed, renaming of Category:Iron ore mines in Western Australia to Category:Iron mines in Western Australia, at WP:CFDS. Mitch Ames (talk) 12:38, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

our editor in Albany, a qualified mining chemist has adequately pointed out the misnomer of the main parent category, so the query is in effect redundant - the parent cat of 'iron mines' is wrong, and the western australian 'iron ore mines' needs to applied to the rest of the category tree JarrahTree 13:09, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
I've withdrawn this proposal, and instead raised Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2016 October 17#Category:Iron mines in Australia. Mitch Ames (talk) 01:15, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Location of Wurdi Youang[edit]

Editors are invited to comment at Talk:Wurdi Youang#Location as to whether the specific coordinates of an Aboriginal stone arrangement should be included in the article. Mitch Ames (talk) 01:35, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Disambig to category[edit]

I am wondering what other oz eds might think of a category that feeds from a disambig of unrelated items - where the subjects of common name or similar name have a category connection - [[Category:Granny_Smith]] - it may well be workable but I am wondering of others views of such categories JarrahTree 06:15, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

WP:SHAREDNAME says no. I suggest that Wikipedia talk:Overcategorization might be a better place to raise the discussion. Mitch Ames (talk) 08:03, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
... or WT:CAT, which has more watchers (680, vs Overcategorization's 126). Mitch Ames (talk) 11:59, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Possum move[edit]

Did anyone notice Talk:Possum#Requested move 26 September 2016? I don't have time to consider it now, but it has been closed as "The result of the move request was: Moved. Possum to Phalangeriformes and Possum (disambiguation) to Possum." with only a couple of !votes. --Scott Davis Talk 08:17, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
