Howdy. Welcome to Wikipedia! I see you've already been doing sterling works (sic) on suburbs of Perth - I noticed 'cos you'd improved the dubious geography I cooked up for it on Stirling (disambiguation). Silly me, I didn't know Stirling was a suburb of Perth, as I'd have tried to get my cousin in Carine to write it long ago. Say, I don't suppose you know anything about the other Australian Stirling mentioned in that disambig page?

Anyway, you might find these links helpful in editing pages or creating new ones: How to edit a page, Tutorial, Naming conventions, Manual of Style. You should probably read our policies at some point too (maybe I should sometime, too).

But don't feel you have to read every policy document before you do anything. Dive in, be bold in editing, and if you do anything wrong, someone will be quick to correct it and let you know (hopefully, politely!)


You can help improve the articles listed below! This list updates frequently, so check back here for more tasks to try. (See Wikipedia:Task Center for brief guides.)

Help counter systemic bias by creating new articles on important women.

Help improve popular pages, especially those of low quality.


If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian!

You may have already noticed that you can sign your name using three tildes, like this: ~~~. If you use four, you can add a datestamp too, as I've done below. This is mostly useful, and is considered good wikiquette, on talk pages. But be aware that the actual wikipedia articles should never be signed - they belong to the community, rather than the individual who created them.

Prison categories[edit]

Hi Meesham. The infobox template is a great idea. As you can see I made a basic start and intended to do an infobox template myself in time. No complaints here. You've done well :)~ Longhair 19:37, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)


Big Brother (Australian TV series)[edit]

... and thanks for the good work in helping with the small time revert war over at the Big Brother (Australian TV series) article. Hopefully it's all blown over now with no dents in anyones armour. Longhair 20:04, 23 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Oh and you may as well take the Behindbigbrother.com link off now too. It has been closed down. So ughh.. Longhair 20:04, 23 Feb 2005 (UTC)

The above comment was added (obviously) by ChrisW and disguised to come from myself. Chris, I, and I note many others are trying to explain how Wikipedia functions as a whole. Basically, what's acceptable around here, and what is not. I'm overlooking this event, but the next time, I'm seeking remedy. You've got no interest to play by any rules here. -- Longhair | Talk 08:54, 8 Mar 2005 (UTC)

My TV gets turned on for all of 10 hours a year Meesham. I hear ya :) -- Longhair | Talk 11:24, 8 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Vandalism of my user page[edit]

Thanks for the revert. We seem to make good tag team partners ;)~ -- Longhair | Talk 13:54, 13 Mar 2005 (UTC)

At times a purge of the cache is required. Try adding ?action=purge to the end of any Wikipedia URL to force a current copy of an article. -- Longhair | Talk 14:01, 13 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Perth aerial image[edit]

Hi. If I recall correctly, the aerial image came from a collection of NASA aerial images of Australian cities that came on an Australian PC World CD (or some computer magazine, at least). Unfortunately I can't check this, because I gave away a huge stash of computer magazine CDs a long while ago, and it was probably among them. But it was definitely Public Domain NASA. Kind of a bummer, because I didn't do the best job on that map (the only decent part is the scale, which I determined by looking at distances between the mainland and Garden Island and comparing it to a map with a scale. - Mark 07:23, 31 Mar 2005 (UTC)

National longevity recordholders[edit]

I have responded on the Talk page there.(Note I made a statement when I made the revert,before you commented).--Louis E./le@put.com/12.144.5.2 19:38, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

Yeah, sorry about that. I've a feeling I know who did it and I have taken measures to see it doesn't happen again. Cheers for pointing it out.--Crestville 18:39, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)


Thanks for your welcome note[edit]

Hi Meesham, I've finally worked out how to do user talk (I think) - I'm pretty new to this wiki concept, although not new to the Internet. Your comments noted and appreciated. Robert Fraser 08:40, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Copyright violations[edit]

Replacing an article with text copied from a website as you did here form this website is a copyright violation. Do you have any recollection of how many articles you did this on that need to be fixed?--BirgitteSB 20:44, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
