  • I'm not a huge Royals or royalty person, but Queen Elizabeth II's Jubilees are typically fairly notable since even someone like myself, who doesn't go out of their way to consume media about them has heard of it. I left a message on the royalty WikiProject, which focuses on royalty related articles on Wikipedia, about the article and yourself. Hopefully someone can help you flesh it out!

Wikipedia and copyrightEdit

  Hello Peter Ormond, and welcome to Wikipedia. Your additions to Ruby Jubilee of Elizabeth II have been removed in whole or in part, as they appear to have added copyrighted content without evidence that the source material is in the public domain or has been released by its owner or legal agent under a suitably-free and compatible copyright license. (To request such a release, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission.) While we appreciate your contributions to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from sources to avoid copyright and plagiarism issues.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and cite the source using an inline citation. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify the information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • We have strict guidelines on the usage of copyrighted images. Fair use images must meet all ten of the non-free content criteria in order to be used in articles, or they will be deleted. All other images must be made available under a free and open license that allows commercial and derivative reuse to be used on Wikipedia.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a legally designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. Understand, though, that unlike many other sites, where a person can license their content for use there and retain non-free ownership, that is not possible at Wikipedia. Rather, the release of content must be irrevocable, to the world, into the public domain (PD) or under a suitably-free and compatible copyright license. Such a release must be done in a verifiable manner, so that the authority of the person purporting to release the copyright is evidenced. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied or translated without attribution. If you want to copy or translate from another Wikipedia project or article, you must follow the copyright attribution steps in Wikipedia:Translation#How to translate.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing.

Coming attractionEdit

In the future, we'll need an RFC covering all the 'former' monarchy articles that had Elizabeth II as their only monarch. Basically a re-do of the August 2021 RFC, only with Barbados added. Gotta get'em in sync, be it Monarchy of country or Queen of country. I don't really care which, just as long as 'one' is adopted for all of them. GoodDay (talk) 05:55, 3 November 2021 (UTC)

The RM at Monarchy of Barbados has been closed as no move, which goes opposite of the August 2021 RM. It's likely that the RM at Queen of Nigeria will be closed as no move, which goes along with the August 2021 RM. These two articles-in-question are basically the same articles - monarchies that had (will have) only 'one' monarch. So, why are we getting different results? Scratching my head, over the likely different outcomes. GoodDay (talk) 05:25, 4 November 2021 (UTC)

I think the August 2021 RM should be again opened. And if an independent monarchy existed in that country before, then parenthetical disambiguation of years (e.g. Monarchy of Nigeria (1960–1963)) should be used for the Elizabethan monarchy. Peter Ormond 💬 05:33, 4 November 2021 (UTC)
Agreed, also Monarchy of Fiji needs to be split into two articles. GoodDay (talk) 05:42, 4 November 2021 (UTC)
I think it should be split into Tui Viti and Monarchy of Fiji (1970–1987). The content about Cakobau's reign is not so great, so I don't think it deserves a stand-alone monarchy article. It could be mentioned at Tui Viti. The Elizabethan monarchy could be covered at Monarchy of Fiji (1970–1987). Also, the Fijian chiefs still recognising The Queen as Tui Viti even after the 1987 coup, can also be covered at Tui Viti. Peter Ormond 💬 05:48, 4 November 2021 (UTC)
Agreed. GoodDay (talk) 05:53, 4 November 2021 (UTC)

Holy smokes, I think my big plea on November 4, got the ball rolling for the Nigerian monarchy article's name. Congrats, now 'many more' to go :) GoodDay (talk) 17:29, 5 November 2021 (UTC)

@Diannaa: You can see I have got copyright problems for some of my edits. I haven't got a high proficiency in English, so I cannot completely write the text in my own words. Please tell me who to turn to on Wikipedia for help. Also, please email me the full source of the draft as it appeared at 21:02 revision. Peter Ormond 💬 21:42, 14 November 2021 (UTC)
Content has to be written in your own words and not include any wording from the source material. One thing I find that works for me is to read over the source material and then pretend I am verbally describing the topic to a friend in my own words. Stuff should also be presented in a different order where possible. Summarize rather than paraphrase. This will typically result in your version being much shorter than the source document. There's some reading material on this topic at Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing and/or have a look at the material at Paraphrase: Write It in Your Own Words. Check out the links in the menu on the left for some exercises to try. Or study this module aimed at WikiEd students.
Please don't add copyright content to Wikipedia, not even temporarily for editing. Please do your amendments before you save the page, or use an external editor such as Microsoft Word or Google Docs and work on it there until you are sure it's completely original.

Australian and Canadian GGsEdit

Hi, Peter Ormond, I took the Canadian GG out of the G20 box, but left the Australian in, because of the Australian head of state dispute. I personally don't know enough about the Australian situation to comment, so I left it in. Will be interesting to see if anyone responds to either of our deletions. ;) Mr Serjeant Buzfuz (talk) 18:15, 4 December 2021 (UTC)

Hello Mr Serjeant Buzfuz! It was decided by an RfC that we should refer to The Queen as head of state of Australia, on Wikipedia. :) Peter Ormond 💬 18:51, 4 December 2021 (UTC)
I was not aware of that, thank you! Mr Serjeant Buzfuz (talk) 19:36, 4 December 2021 (UTC)

Don't know if an RFC is required, concerning categories & sub-categories. But, I'm planning on one, as many of the commonwealth realm governors-general have 'head of state of their countries' in such categories & sub-categories. I was reverted by an editor at the governors-general of Australia category, for example. GoodDay (talk) 21:49, 4 December 2021 (UTC)

We already have the 2016 RfC concerning Australia, and there is no "head of state dispute" in any other Commonwealth realm. So, I don't think there's a need for any new RfC. I suggest you should start the work in Categories and Sub-categories. Peter Ormond 💬 21:54, 4 December 2021 (UTC)
Peter & @Mr Serjeant Buzfuz:, I agree. But, editor StAnselm, appears to resist. GoodDay (talk) 21:57, 4 December 2021 (UTC)
StAnselm says, "POV edit which would require consensus." Tell him of the already established consensus.[2] Peter Ormond 💬 22:00, 4 December 2021 (UTC)
He doesn't think the categories & sub-categories are covered by it. PS - You'll note, he's one of the 'tiny few' who were against the Australian monarch being described as Australia's head of state, in the 2016 RFC. GoodDay (talk) 22:04, 4 December 2021 (UTC)
They you may open a new RfC regarding categories & sub-categories. But I think it's entirely unnecessary and a waste of time. Peter Ormond 💬 22:09, 4 December 2021 (UTC)
I agree with you, that it would be a waste of time. PS - You can speak to him if you want, to avoid the headache. I've just contacted him, second ago. GoodDay (talk) 22:13, 4 December 2021 (UTC)

RFC should be respectedEdit

Hello. Why did you remove the phrase head of state from the Monarchy of Australia article's lead? The terminology 'head of state' was put into the intro, via a long RFC. The RFC-in-question, was held in November 2018. I only hope you haven't encouraged a certain Australian editor to re-start his 'Australian monarch isn't head of state' campaign.

Inaccurate edits to Antigua and Barbuda related articles.Edit

Hello. I was wondering that the next time you decide to revert another edit, think, and ask yourself: "If something does not exist, like a law saying its a capital city or a law giving a language an official status, do you really think it is realistic for me to think that there is a law saying that there is not one?".

CROIX (talk) 21:10, 23 May 2022 (UTC)

WP:BURDEN You must provide source for your bold edits. If, the constitution does not give a language official status, you must provide a reliable source that says that "the constitution does not give any language official status". For example, no legislation in India states any "national language", and this fact is backed by sources. [3] The fact that you can't cite sources means it is all WP:OR. Peter Ormond 💬 00:06, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
So what you are telling me to do is use inaccurate sources? It is not true that Antigua and Barbuda has an official language, this is proven by Antiguan and Barbudan LAW. CROIX (talk) 01:09, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
The official language is not English, my source is the constitution of Antigua and Barbuda. And since no other language is given official status, there is no official language. CROIX (talk) 01:10, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
Whatever the case, you need to PROVIDE A RELIABLE SOURCE that explicity states that whatever language IS NOT AN OFFICIAL LANGUAGE of Antigua and Barbuda. For the other "recognised national languages", you must provide reliable sources that explicity say that each of those languages is a "recognised national language". Peter Ormond 💬 01:23, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
I provided two sources, you can check them if you would like! Anyways, the government of Antigua and Barbuda is behind all of these sources, and I don’t think there is really anyone who can be more accurate than them. CROIX (talk) 01:56, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
Neither of those sources EXPLICITLY SAY that those languages "are RECOGNISED NATIONAL LANGUAGES". Please revert your latest edit, else I need to report you to the ANI. Peter Ormond 💬 01:58, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
Okay, I will change it to “languages that the government is required to translate” just to make it more exact if you would like. CROIX (talk) 02:01, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
If they are not RECOGNISED NATIONAL LANGUAGES, just remove them from the infobox. Peter Ormond 💬 02:03, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
The languages are literally recognized by the government, nationally, and they are languages. CROIX (talk) 02:06, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
Then CITE A RELIABLE SOURCE that explicity states that those languages "are RECOGNISED NATIONAL LANGUAGES". Those two sources don't explicity support the argument. Why don't you understand? Peter Ormond 💬 02:09, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
I did, the source is called the government of Antigua and Barbuda. CROIX (talk) 02:11, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
Again, you are repeating your same argument. YOUR SOURCES DON'T EXPLICITLY SUPPORT THE ARTICLE CONTENT. If you still don't understand and further engage in WP:Original research, or WP:Edit warring, I will report you. Peter Ormond 💬 02:15, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
They do actually, did you even read the source? Also, I request that you respond to my previous post. CROIX (talk) 02:21, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
No, they don't. Peter Ormond 💬 02:22, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
What? I’m sorry but what does “they don’t” mean? CROIX (talk) 02:24, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
(In that context) CROIX (talk) 02:24, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
What do you understand by WP:BURDEN? Peter Ormond 💬 02:34, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
Also, the Belize article is doing the same exact thing as I was doing with Antigua and Barbuda, citing sources from their government and their statistics department. How is my case different? CROIX (talk) 02:12, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
In the article Belize, those languages are listed under the header "Regional and minority languages", that means a significant number of Belizeans speak those languages, whether those languages are "recognised national languages" or not. The source is 2010 Census, that supports the argument. Peter Ormond 💬 02:21, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
So if I change it to regional and minority languages, which the recognized languages also are, you’ll stop reverting my edits? I remind you the source I was using was Antiguas 2011 census. CROIX (talk) 02:23, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
This source does not support you argument that those languages are "regional and minority languages". I don't see a statement that says that majority of Aniguans and Barbudans speak those languages. I just see this: "Appendix VII: Interpreters
Ms. Ariana Davis Spanish
Mr. Theo Noso Spanish, French, Italian, German
Mr. Stanley Yang Cantonese, Mandarin".
This does not EXPLICITLY support your statement that these are "regional and minority languages". End of story Peter Ormond 💬 02:34, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
Also, since nearly all of the population speaks Creole, should I put that as a national language? CROIX (talk) 02:25, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
If majority of a population speak a language that doesn't make that a "national language". Legislation is needed to give a language "national status". If you cite a reliable source that explicity states that Creole is spoken by a significant number of people, then add it to "regional and minority languages". Peter Ormond 💬 02:34, 24 May 2022 (UTC)

That’s the same thing they say on the Belize articles source. CROIX (talk) 10:36, 24 May 2022 (UTC)

Also, it’s a majority language, and is speaken in every part of the country, so why put it in regional and minority languages? CROIX (talk) 10:37, 24 May 2022 (UTC)

I love your user pageEdit

From one commonwealth (British) citizen to another, I think your user page is great.

Orphaned non-free image File:Canadian Platinum Jubilee emblem.pngEdit

 

Thanks for uploading File:Canadian Platinum Jubilee emblem.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Yeeno (talk) 06:50, 5 June 2022 (UTC)

Platinum JubileeEdit

I'm hoping that your idea of a compromise, isn't to have it all your way, concerning an article's intro. GoodDay (talk) 17:53, 5 June 2022 (UTC)

If the UK isn't going to be singled out at the Platinum article's intro? Then that fellow over at List of longest-reigning monarchs, may as well put Jamaica with the UK, Canada, Australia & New Zealand. Each one would be as silly looking as the other, but so be it. I've only so much patients with difficulty from others. Then I move on & let someone else put up with it. GoodDay (talk) 00:45, 7 June 2022 (UTC)

Queen ElizabethEdit

Hello,

I'm not sure you've seen what my edit is about. I'm not removing the independant Jamaican entry, but just the numberr (which is a compromise). You can't be second and 14th at the same time as a person. Elfast (talk) 10:10, 7 June 2022 (UTC)

Discuss this at the article's talk page, not here. Peter Ormond 💬 16:14, 7 June 2022 (UTC)
Unless the tide changes, that RFC is gonna 'bleep up' the article's first section criteria. GoodDay (talk) 05:02, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
The RfC and dicussion are getting more and more ridiculous. Peter Ormond 💬 05:09, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
I'm just about done with that article, as I don't want to bludgeon the process. It's too bad, that it's going to be ruined by an WP:IDONTLIKEIT push. GoodDay (talk) 17:14, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
Let's wait for the RfC result, and then we can see how to fix the rubbish that is being proposed. Many editors there don't understand the concept of sovereignty, independence, divisibility of The Crown etc etc. Maybe there needs to be a separate discussion (or RfC), if the current RfC turns out to be in favour of that nonsense. Let's not lose hope. Peter Ormond 💬 17:32, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
Seeing how the intro to Platinum Jubilee of Elizabeth II ended up? I'm not confident at all. GoodDay (talk) 17:45, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

What's wrong with some of the B-voters? Are they afraid a truckload of A-supporters are gonna arrive between now & July 8? Even a mobile editor, was messing things up. GoodDay (talk) 18:39, 27 June 2022 (UTC)

HelloEdit

I have reverted your edits to Bhumibol Adulyadej because in my opinion I find it a bit inaccurate as they are not really the second longest reigning monarch yet technically, so I think it is best to wait a couple of hours until tomorrow. Also sorry for the warning template (I didn’t notice the sign until after). Anyway bye. 🙂 Sahaib (talk) 17:57, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of File:Bahamas Coronation stamp.jpgEdit

 

The file File:Bahamas Coronation stamp.jpg has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Person who uploaded to Flickr is highly unlikely to be the copyright holder of the stamp. It has not been 70 years since the stamp was published (1953), which means that it has definitely not been 70 years since the author died. Per copyright rules in the Bahamas, the stamp is still under copyright.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated files}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the file's talk page.

Please consider addressing the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated files}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and files for discussion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Archiving noticeEdit

Hey! During your moving of Talk:Alternative successions to the English and British Crown, you forgot to update the archive location. This is just a reminder - don't worry, I've fixed it. Thanks! Aidan9382 (talk) 14:34, 16 June 2022 (UTC)

Graphics Lab requestEdit

Your request has been completed. If satisfied please place a resolve tag on your request entry here, so we may close it. -cheers FOX 52 talk! 00:23, 18 June 2022 (UTC)

New members?Edit

I ain't disputing ya, but who are the 55th & 56th members of the Commonwealth? I'm guessing these additions occurred during the government heads meeting. GoodDay (talk) 17:44, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
