Horton College[edit]

Horton College, Mona Vale, Tasmania

I found a picture for it. I agree that it is very disappointing when libraries and archives claim copyright over digitisations of out-of-copyright works. When that happens, the place I go looking for photos is in the newspapers as pre-1955 newspapers are out of copyright. These can be found by searching Trove. In particular, when searching Trove, you can restrict the search to newspaper articles that contain an illustration (see left-side bar to search that option), e.g. [1] and then it's a manual process of looking through them until you can see an image of what you want that's usable (some are too dark or too blurry to be useful). While you don't usually get a great photo out of the newspapers, you can often get something that is "better than nothing at all" as in this case. Enjoy! Kerry (talk) 02:57, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Thank you so much. That is an amazing idea. Didn't think of that! JTdaleTalk~ 08:53, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Derwent River[edit]

This river needs a category, as there are numerous articles related to the main subject

however the problem is - the article is titled River Derwent Tasmania, most commons references to it are Derwent River.

If there are any project lurkers left here at all, suggestions as to whether to go with the tying the category to the article title, or common usage, would be of help: -

  • River Derwent (Tasmania)
  • Derwent River (Tasmania)
  • River Derwent, Tasmania
  • Derwent River, Tasmania

I had created a Derwent River Tasmania category, but considered it was a bad choice. Suggestions appreciated JarrahTree 14:31, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

My understanding of proper formating is that brackets are not used for geographical locations/features. So x, Tasmania would be most appropriate. River Derwent isn't unknown, but it seems to me most common in old sources. But I'm not sure it matters as long as the other option redirects. JTdaleTalk~

Wikiconference Australia 2015 cancelled[edit]

Folks, just letting you know we will not be proceeding with Wikiconference Australia 2015 originally proposed for 3-5 October 2015. Thanks to those of you who expressed your support. You are free to attend the football finals instead :-) Kerry (talk) 07:54, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Lygodactylus williamsi[edit]

The Tasmanian endangered lizard Talk:Lygodactylus williamsi has no importance assessment. I want some Tasmania editor to add the right importance. There is objection to the Low importance on the talk page.--DThomsen8 (talk) 22:15, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Oh dear, there is a slight difference between Tanzania and Tasmania. Unlikely the very very quiet Tasmania project knows anything about Tanzanian biota JarrahTree 23:24, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

oh so quiet project[edit]

Just in case anyone has this page still on their watch list ...2016_Tasmanian_bushfires is a small stub that is trying to grapple with the issues - any local help or input always appreciated. Links to Examiner articles, Mercury articles, etc - would be appreciated, please JarrahTree 09:43, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
