CareEdit

WP:RS and WP:CITE Paul hasluck edit is classic case - smells of WP:COPYVIO - text like that doesnt come out of thin air specially when it looks like you have not done so - WP:OR and WP:V might also be considered JarrahTree 00:07, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

DemocratsEdit

Hi, and thanks for seconding my political-party template request. To help clear up any doubt about this IP edit, the guy is actually right. It was always a feature of the Democrats senators that they could (and often did) exercise a conscience vote in any division. Party bloc-voting was one of the detestable traditions which Don Chipp regularly railed about. Conscience voting was enshrined in AD policy, stimulating a great deal of membership in the early Democrats. Cheers. Bjenks (talk) 06:37, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

Further to my efforts to obtain a "deregistered" template parameter for the Democrats article, a template guru has placed the idea in the too-hard basket. I've given up! Cheers, Bjenks (talk) 08:46, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
Bjenks Yes I noticed that the other day. What a bizarre response! I read your reply, and I guess we probably don't need to have that infobox parameter. However, I've worked out that it still could be added using blank parameters, i.e.:
| blank1_title = Deregistered
| blank1 = 2015
The only trouble is that this would appear at the bottom of the infobox, rather than just below the "Founded" parameter. I'll let you decide if you think it's worth adding in that way. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 09:25, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
Sounds Ok--I won't object. Watch out for the bogyman! Bjenks (talk) 13:16, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

Qin Shi HuangEdit

Sorry, but Qin Shi Huang is not eligible for inclusion on Wikipedia:Selected anniversaries/September 10, as it has one section does not have enough references. Thanks for the suggestion, though. howcheng {chat} 17:33, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Ivy WedgwoodEdit

Hi, I'm one of the promoters at DYK. I've spent over an hour looking for a biography to slot into Prep 3, and yours is the first well-written, well-sourced article I found that meets all the DYK criteria without any fuss. Good work! Yoninah (talk) 22:04, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

DYK for Ivy WedgwoodEdit

 On 20 September 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Ivy Wedgwood, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Ivy Wedgwood's retirement after 21 years in the Australian Senate was reported with the headline "Ivy is a housewife again"? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Ivy Wedgwood. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Ivy Wedgwood), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Women in the Australian SenateEdit

Hey, just wanted to say great idea with the numbers in this list! It's a great solution to making sure we don't end up missing people or miscounting, and it also helps to clarify the people who came in at the same time. I'm going to extend it to the HoR and the rest of the state lists. Frickeg (talk) 03:19, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

Please be carefulEdit

After moving the Tom Frame page to Tom Frame (comics), you added an orphan tag to it. It was only an orphan because you moved it. Its previous location (Tom Frame) had several incoming links. I have updated them and removed the tag. Please be more aware of how moves impact other pages in the future. Thanks! Argento Surfer (talk) 12:44, 3 October 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 7Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages.

Keating imageEdit

Hello, the NAA creative commons page you are using ([1]) to justify your inclusion of the images of Paul Keating and Ninian Stephen applies only to the NAA-generated content of its website. Please note that it includes a specific section at the bottom on the copyright status of items in the NAA's collection which explicitly notes that different copyright statuses apply to these items, and links to this very clear fact sheet. From reviewing the fact sheet, it is clear that these images are still under Commonwealth Government copyright. Please stop trying to insert them into Wikipedia. If you continue to try to add them, you will be blocked from editing. Regards, Nick-D (talk) 21:49, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Well, I'm not. I have only edited with a single account and I am quite happy for my IP address to be visible so this can be verified. I have nothing to hide, unlike certain others. Ivar the Boneful @ 220.253.157.110 (talk) 09:49, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

Dumbest revert I've seen for a little whileEdit

Why would you have thought that this was a good idea, exactly? https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Mark_Latham&diff=807156852&oldid=806895784

Hello Mr/Ms IP, I reverted your (I assume?) edit because it's poor English – see adjective order for an explanation. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 14:47, 31 October 2017 (UTC)
It is poor English to imply that someone is no longer Australian when you merely want to indicate that they are no longer a politician. 148.122.187.2 (talk) 15:16, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

There's no ambiguity, as no native speaker of English would interpret "former Australian politician" to mean that the individual is no longer an Australian. You're analysing it as if it's formal logic, but it isn't. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 15:21, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

There is ambiguity, which is clear to any educated native English speaker. It's clear what is meant but it's clear that the meaning is not well specified. The grammar rules are well known and simple. 148.122.187.2 (talk) 15:29, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

As I stated above, "Australian former politician" contravenes the standard English adjective order; if you can find a style guide or any other source that says otherwise please let me know. I don't go out of my way to correct it, but if I see it being added I'll continue to remove it. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 15:37, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

For example, here: in modification structures involving at least one operator adjective like former or alleged (i.e. of type <<s,<e,t>>,<e,t>>), adjective ordering restrictions do not apply 148.122.187.2 (talk) 15:49, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

...and the same paper states "adjective ordering restrictions apply only to sequences where different orders yield different semantic interpretations", which is exactly what you're arguing against. [2] Here's a paper which specifically lists "former" as a scope-taking adjective (p. 17) and therefore first in the pecking order. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 16:42, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

You totally misunderstood. If different orders lead to different semantic interpretations, then obviously, the order to choose must be the one corresponding to the semantic interpretation you intend. If different orders have the same semantic interpretation, then normal adjective order applies. "Big blue house" means the same as "blue big house", but "Australian former politician" does not mean the same as "former Australian politician".145.15.244.20 (talk) 20:37, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

Your recent editsEdit

Perhaps you should try learning about the populations you are trying to reclassify before making edits that can only be described as enormously ignorant at best, and bigoted at worst.2601:84:4502:61EA:65A6:1187:CF1C:195C (talk) 06:06, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

"Classifying all Jews as middle easterners is antisemitic and refusing to call Romani european is antiziganist."

No, what YOU are doing is antisemitic, and way over the 3RR limit. I'd tell you to stop, but that ship has long since sailed. I suspect you will be banned soon. Ciao.2601:84:4502:61EA:65A6:1187:CF1C:195C (talk) 07:43, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

November 2017Edit

Your recent editing history at Racism in the United States shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. William Thweatt TalkContribs 08:15, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

Racism in the United StatesEdit

Hello Ivar the Boneful. Thank you for your recent improvements to Racism in the United States. I know the trolls can be annoying, but please try not to violate WP:3RR. It isn't worth it. Make your edit, and then argue your case on the article's talk page. Cooler heads will prevail. I know from experience that it's easier said than done, but please try. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 20:24, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

<Personal attack redacted>

Talk:Julie PayetteEdit

Greetings. You may wish to familiarize yourself with WP's talk page guidelines regarding constructive contributions. To wit:

Article talk pages should be used to discuss ways to improve an article; not to criticize, pick apart, or vent about the current status of an article or its subject. This is especially true on the talk pages of biographies of living people [...] the talk page is for discussing how to improve the article, not vent your feelings about it.

Frankly, I'm not seeing anything constructive about the (overheated) comment by Randal Oulton that you restored here. I would urge a self-revert on this one. —Sangdeboeuf (talk) 04:30, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

asking why material hasn't been included is not "venting". you can revert if you want, it will stay in the article history as evidence anyway. Randal Oulton may have his own opinions and you might ask him to rephrase instead of just deleting, because that way it looks like suppression / censorship. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 07:57, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
Pardon me, but that seems a little paranoid. This isn't a legal proceeding, nor am I a government censor, just a volunteer editor like yourself. WP:BLP and WP:PROPORTION are pretty clear: just because something scandalous has been published about a person doesn't make it encyclopedic info. WP is not a tabloid (I'm assuming this was prompted by the car accident issue, but after all, Oulton didn't specify just which factual omissions they objected to). —Sangdeboeuf (talk) 08:41, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
Sorry if I gave off the wrong impression, I probably worded that poorly. I didn't mean it as an attack or an accusation on you, it's just that that article has a history of paid / COI editing. :) Ivar the Boneful (talk) 11:30, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

There's a great deal of info about her that people are currently discussing out there. The controversy about her has ramped up owing to her inaugural speech this week. I'd rather people can check the information on Wiki, where we can hope there will at least be an attempt to keep it impartial and objective. As it stands, the article has been scrubbed and it shows frankly, and I was startled how bare it was when I came to it. Start a section called "Controversy" or whatever, and put the stuff there. Or not, I really don't mind. Like I said, all the info is out there elsewhere on the web anyway. Randal Oulton (talk) 04:09, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi there, Ivar. I'm impressed by all the new biographies you have been creating recently. Maybe you would like to join the Women in Red project where we are striving to improve the coverage of women on Wikipedia. You might also like to look at our World Contest which is running until the end of November. It's not too late to add your articles to the "Articles achievement" list there. Keep up the good work and let me know if there's anything I can do to help you along. (cc Dr. Blofeld)--Ipigott (talk) 11:55, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

Thanks! I actually heard about the contest a while back, but I completely forgot about until a few days ago. Hopefully I can still sneak in and snare some of the minor prizes! I've actually already added most of the articles I created lately to the main list (I think that's what you were referring to, if not let me know). Ivar the Boneful (talk) 12:06, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
Yes, that's it. If you have time, you can add all the others to the main list too - or if you want to take part in the contest, add them with your user name under the countries. Let me know if you need any help.--Ipigott (talk) 15:10, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

Jean SpringerEdit

FYI, there seems to be some dispute about this person's date of birth–I've seen sources saying 1939 or 1946-ish. My guess is that the 1939 source is correct as it seems to come from personal information, but I thought it was worth explanining in an endnote. Blythwood (talk) 19:52, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi, do you know why this hook keeps being moved out of the Special Occasion holding area for December 17? Yoninah (talk) 19:47, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

The article is already listed at Wikipedia:Selected anniversaries/December 17, and as far as I'm aware the same article cannot be in bold in two separate places on the main page on the same date. Perhaps it could run a day or two before the actual anniversary instead. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 11:59, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

  The World Contest Laurels
Thankyou for the hard work you put into the Women in Red World Contest!! -♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:05, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

I make it $60 that you've won. Please double check. If you would like to donate any of your winnings into the Women in Red Book Fund to raise money to buy books for editors of women topics who need them on demand please add your name and the amount you'd like to donate in the sub section below the prize winners on the main contest page.♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:05, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

@Dr. Blofeld: I was just about to email you when I noticed that I seem to have gained an extra $10 since the last time I checked (apparently an additional $10 as a general prize). So that would bring my total to $70 (10+15+20+25) rather than $60 (the figure listed at Earnings by user). I've included $70 as the "prize claim" in my email to you, but you might want to double-check that I haven't messed up my sums. Thanks for all your work, Ivar the Boneful (talk) 14:12, 24 December 2017 (UTC)

Why not join Women in Red?Edit

Thank you for creating articles on women and their works over the past few weeks as a participant in our World Contest. We have become aware of your contributions thanks to research undertaken by Bobo.03 at the University of Minnesota.
If you would like to receive news of future WiR events and participate in our discussions, you might now be interested in becoming a member of Women in Red where we are actively trying to reduce Wikipedia's content gender gap.
In any case, thank you for actively contributing to the coverage of women (currently 17.25% of English Wikipedia's biographies).

Georgs EverestEdit

Thanks for tackling the Everest page. It has needed attention for years. If you have the energy the section on the survey could be extended since that work is the basis of his fame. The section on his house in India and and that on his extended family are really too big. Glad too that you had the courage to change Welsh to British; the nationalists won't like that! Peter Mercator (talk) 18:18, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Cheers, I pretty much came across it by chance and I was surprised at how little info there was. I could've been really daring and called him English! I mean, I'm usually the first person to call a Scot a Scot, etc., but with Everest there's no evidence that he ever even set foot in Wales, only that his dad had a house there. Hopefully I don't get any backlash. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 18:32, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

DYK for Disappearance of Harold HoltEdit

 On 11 December 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Disappearance of Harold Holt, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status.

What you guys have here is a content dispute - that's not something requiring administrative action, unless one or both of you carries on edit warring. Talk it through either here or on the article talkpage, but right now there's nothing sanctionable going on, and no mop-wielding required. If you can't come to terms, dispute resolution is thataway. Yunshui  15:28, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
FWIW, with my "uninvolved editor" hat on rather than my "admin" hat, I'd say Ivar is correct here. The disputed passage appears to be sourced and (thanks to some earlier improvements by Arianewiki1) neutrally worded. That it was added by a COI account (<changes hats>and if you can provide reasonable (non-outing) proof of that COI, I will happily block Jasonox32 for violation of the disclosure policy<editor hat back on again>) is neither here nor there, it would seem to be pertinent information for an encyclopedia article about Hetty Johnston.

Some basis in principleEdit

I write about your insistence on fact sequence in BLP lede (Alexander Downer) where you have insisted (4 reverts) that a lesser current role should stand above an earlier more notable one. I note that your last edit summary relies on the principle that you "haven't seen that written down anywhere" and there are other articles which reflect your method. This was interesting as your first revert had, quite to the contrary, claimed you were reverting my edit on the basis of an existing standard. So the first point here is that you have a propensity to cite a standard to be followed when there is none. On the substance of the alternative approaches, I note that you conceded, by implication, that the relative notability of the subject's roles is to be taken into account in determining sequence because it was on the basis that running a bridge club is way less significant than having been foreign minister that you concede that would not take precedence. So the principle of your position is not principled at all, merely as long as a piece of string for you, at least as far as your brief edit summaries go. So here is an opportunity for you to lay out your principle of precedence so we can then apply it intelligently and reasonably to the specific problem before us. I'm all ears. sirlanz 02:22, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

July 2018Edit

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for edit warring and violating the three-revert rule, as you did at Martin Van Buren. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions.
During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.
If you think there are good reasons for being unblocked, please read the guide to appealing blocks, then add the following text below the block notice on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.  Favonian (talk) 17:18, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Former politiciansEdit

"Australian former politician" is truly horrifying English, but "former Australian politician" is inaccurate. And anyway, who are we to say they're "former politicians"? All of them are still involved in some measure. We don't call people "former authors", "former scientists", "former historians". Frickeg (talk) 21:17, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

How is it inaccurate? They are no longer politicians. "Former scientist" returns 80 hits on Wikipedia search [5]. "Former politician" is used frequently in the national media [6], [7] [8]. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 09:42, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
Because they're not former Australians. And anyway, is John Howard no longer a politician? We describe a politician as "a person active in party politics, or a person holding or seeking office in government". Depending on the word "active", most of our former PMs are still involved in their parties in some way. I do not think the media is a good example as they are reporting on specific events whereas we are supposed to be taking a broad view. Britannica gets on very well without "former", and Australia seems to be one of few countries where this horrible formulation has been allowed to sneak in. Frickeg (talk) 21:22, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
The rules of adjective order require "former" to precede "Australian". "Australian former" is ungrammatical. It's language not formal logic, I don't think anyone who's a native speaker would parse "former Australian politician" as meaning that person is no longer an Australian, any more than they would for "former Australian cricket captain". There are numerous results in the Australian Dictionary of Biography for "former Australian X", but none for "Australian former X" I think it's relatively simple to draw the line between "former politician" (or "retired politician" if that's any better) and "politician". Usually it will be reported that such and such is "leaving" or "retiring" from politics. Or failing that, if their term in a specific office comes to an end and they don't make any further candidacies, then it can be assumed that they have left active politics and are no longer a politician. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 04:53, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
I would treat people like Howard and Hawke who are wheeled out every three years the same as any other celebrity endorsements - it doesn't turn them (back) into a politician just because they are campaigning for / endorsing someone. If "retired" suits you better than "former" I wouldn't object. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 04:56, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

GuilfoyleEdit

Fine, but the source isn't in the article, please add it. In the meantime, I am going to remove the year from the hook because there appears to be two sources which contradict each other regarding the year she entered the cabinet with a portfolio. Gatoclass (talk) 19:38, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

User:Gatoclass I didn't write that hook and I'm not an admin so I can't edit it. Please change it back to the original hook as agreed at the nomination page. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 19:43, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
The reason I substituted another hook for the original is that the original hook was found to be erroneous (the source does not say she was a "key" member of the razor gang, see WP:ERRORS2), and removing the word "key" would unacceptably weaken the hook in my view. I have spent a LOT of time trying to rectify the issues with this nomination, which firstly was submitted with an unsourced hook, and secondly proved to have another unsourced statement which you've only now provided a source for. I think it's a good strong hook as it stands and am not going to remove it, and I'm certainly not going to start casting around for a replacement hook when I've already been up half the night trying to fix your broken nomination, sorry.

File:Tasmanian Nationals Logo.pngEdit

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for the calculation of the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. See User:RonBot for info on how to not get these messages.

Current election tagEdit

Just a quick question about this revert where you removed the 'current election' tag. The prepoll started today so technically the voting has began. The actual election day is not until the 18th May. Can you point me to the policy where it says when to use the tag in question? --Last intellectual (talk) 11:30, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

User:Last intellectual I don't know if there's an actual policy but I've only seen it used after the polls have closed and they've started counting the votes. IMHO it's only really necessary when results start trickling out, possibly with different sources saying different things, and people are tempted to add them to the page even though they might not be accurate. The template says "Information may change rapidly", but there's no information at present. Right now I think it's sufficient for people to just read the article. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 11:35, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
While not as rapidly changing as election evening, new information is coming in each day, e.g. opinion polls. You are correct, the previous Federal Election only added the 'current election' tag on election day. --Last intellectual (talk) 12:06, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
