Edmund Barton on OTDEdit

Hi and thanks for adding Edmund Barton to Wikipedia:Selected anniversaries/January 7 for his 100th birthday the 100th anniversary of his death. However, that article normally appears along with Samuel Griffith and Richard O'Connor on October 5 (the date of their appointments to the High Court of Australia), which would make him ineligible for inclusion on his birthday. We could of course make the exception but that would mean his regular blurb could not be featured this year, as articles are supposed to only get one bold appearance per year. So I'm going to take him out, but if you feel that the birthday is more important than the high court blurb, then let me know and we can do it the second way. howcheng {chat} 18:46, 5 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi Howcheng, thanks for the heads-up. I would be inclined towards running Barton's death rather than the court blurb this year, given the significance of the anniversary. It appears the October 5 blurb ran in both 2016 and 2017, and there are several other blurbs which are eligible for that date. However, if you feel that you'd have that blurb "up your sleeve" then I'm happy for you to go that route. My gut feel is that Australia/ns are probably over-represented in blurbs and don't feature as often in the births/deaths section, if that makes a difference. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 09:18, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
OK, we'll put him in for the deaths this year. Thanks. howcheng {chat} 16:56, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

Reminder to present your sourcesEdit

Hi, in regards to your edit in the Sun Yang article. Not sure if you are knowingly vandalising or just unaware. But you need to provide sources for your info. You wrote that both Sun and the security guard destroyed a single vial with their hammers. A couple of guys on just one vial? Regardless in the ABC article, it clearly stated a security guard destroyed the vial with a hammer. Not Sun. Past tabloid media have been incorrectly spinning the story so use the more updated and authoritive sources in the future. Cheers. https://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2019-07-22/mack-horton-sun-yang-feud-swimming-world-championships/11334782?pfmredir=sm&section=sport 49.195.32.181 (talk) 14:05, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

What a charming message. I didn't add any new content to the article, I reinstated the existing wording which someone had erased and replaced with the word "incident" - not very helpful to the reader. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 16:44, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

Chris Watson image - 1906 Australian federal electionEdit

Hi, thanks for your edits to 1906 Australian federal election, including using File:Chris Watson 1904 (b&w).jpg. Its a nice photo & closely cropped, but it does make him look a bit odd with Deakin & Reid looking at the reader whilst Watson looks off otside the page. Given its on the right hand side of the page, perhaps it would work better if flipped on the verticle axis so he is looking toward the page. Cheers --Find bruce (talk) 03:13, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

No worries, I've changed it out for the one used on the 1903 article. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 08:42, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

KnowlesEdit

Haven't started on Sue Knowles - I'd put her in the too-hard basket for right now because she's a fairly notable person to have a one-line article and I knew I was going to have a ton of material to sift through to do a decent job the way I do things. I'd love it if you decided to have a crack instead. You might be right that it could be the last one-liner but there's a whole ton of two-liners left, alas. The Drover's Wife (talk) 06:02, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Percy GraingerEdit

Thank you for the excellent photograph. I remember asking the main editor of the article – the greatly missed Brianboulton – why he had chosen a picture of Harpo Marx for the top of the page. He didn't quarrel with my description, and I think he would have been pleased by your splendid replacement. Tim riley talk 12:28, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

Thanks Tim. It's an excellent article - I had been aware of Brian but I did not realise how prolific he was. Just one small piece in his overall legacy. I've found that the image choice in many older featured articles, even older articles in general, hasn't always kept pace with the availability of images. In the time since someone first considered which image to use, there has often been an accumulation of images uploaded to Commons and you sometimes have half a dozen striking replacements to choose from. Ivar the Boneful (talk) 13:06, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
Well, I shall look out with pleasure for any further new images from the Ivar the Boneful production line. I keep BB's successful FACs on my watchlist, and my own of course. Best wishes, and more power to your elbow! Tim riley talk 15:40, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

Ivar the Boneful could you please explain to me why you reverted my edits on Frank Lowy?

This material is cited, Frank lowy's connection to the Institute_for_National_Security_Studies_(Israel) is well documented. As an editor you are required to justify removal of content- simply claiming it is vandalism is not a valid reason for deletion.

Willthewanderer, I think it was restored in the next revision. Ed6767 (talk) 01:03, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
Indeed it was- but I would like to know why it was deleted in the first place, as it was clear that this was not vandalism --Willthewanderer (talk) 01:10, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
User:Willthewanderer I reverted to the last good version before an IP blanked most of the article. Unfortunately is no way to selectively revert in these instances. I'm not sure what your issue is, given your edit was restored one minute later? Ivar the Boneful (talk) 01:53, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
