Didn't even last a day on Wikipedia: where opinions are valued over facts. Fair dinkum.

January 2022[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Cannolis. I noticed that you added or changed content in an article, Australia Day, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so. You can have a look at referencing for beginners. If you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Cannolis (talk) 20:24, 24 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Talk page protocol[edit]

Do not insert your comments in the middle of existing comments. Protocol is newest comment within a topic goes at bottom, and New sections go at bottom of existing sections. David notMD (talk) 22:00, 24 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

At Talk for Australia Day, there are also older discussions in the Archives. This should never be added to or subtracted from, but those make it clear that your disagreement with what is "Australia Day" has come up repeatedly in the past. David notMD (talk) 22:03, 24 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Not valid ref[edit]

A ref to establishment of Australian citizenship in 1949 DOES NOT contradict nor supercede the accepted definition of Australia Day. David notMD (talk) 22:11, 24 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

deleting stuff[edit]

I sympathize. To a new editor, Wikipedia looks a bit like social media, but what it aspires to is being an encyclopedia. This means all content verified by references. And thus, no opinion, no original research, etc. Although guidelines are "Don't bite the newbies," it can feel harsh.

Editors are allowed to deleted all content on their own Talk pages. This is understood as meaning they have read it and have no desire to keep it. Can also put RETIRED on own User page and Talk page. David notMD (talk) 10:37, 25 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
