Canada vs. Quebec[edit]

Both the British Parliament and the American Continental Congress discussed Canada as an entity. Yes, it wawsn't a separate colony, there was Quebec, Noba Scotia, Upper Canada. But it was a concept, and Carleton was joint or senior governor and military CIC. If you have concerns with any particular article, let's take it to the talk page. Thanks, Lou I 12:00, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Your right, other battles and campaigns are discussed state by state. But, these were part of the revolution. Canada was looked on as an entity by almost all U.S participants. When they referred to Quebec they meant the city. The British North America tends to be really confusing, since there was Canada, Florida, and the 13 colonies. The general use of the BNA term for Canada arose in Britain after the war, when Florida was ceeded to Spain, and U.S. independence was recognized. Lou I 14:08, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)

G'day Matt, would you be interested in joining the latest footy project we have up and running, WikiProject AFL. Let us know your feedback on the project, Cheers Rogerthat 05:52, 9 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Was it really necessary to add that comment to the earth article? Avriette 16:59, 14 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]


It looks like a possible oversight to me. I find it strange that it's not in the university's campus list or in the DEST Job Guide list, both of which contain every other one on the older list you cited on the university talk page (and that I can't find any evidence of an event or something that would definitively show the campus still exists, in the absence of the above).

No, the backing vocalist on Duran Duran's "Mars Meets Venus" was Sally Boyden. Hope that helps! — Catherine\talk 07:48, 10 August 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Charles Sturt University[edit]

Hi Matturn. It's my understanding that, although Rivcoll is a separate entity from CSUSA, Rivcoll is an affiliate to CSUSA in the same way as the other campus-based unions. According to CSUSA's website (

CSUSA is the overarching students’ association of CSU and is comprised of the following affiliates:
  • Charles Sturt University Students’ Association Albury Wodonga (CSUSAA) – formerly Murray Campus Students’ Association;
  • Charles Sturt University Students’ Association Bathurst (CSUSAB) – formerly MASC (Mitchell Association of Student Councils);
  • Charles Sturt University Students’ Association Dubbo (CSUSAD);
  • Charles Sturt University Students’ Association Wagga Wagga (CSUSAW) – known as Rivcoll Union Inc;
  • Charles Sturt University Students’ Association Canberra – known as St Mark’s Canberra.

Although I've been studying at CSU for some years I'm still not as clear about the distinction as I could be, but I don't think it's correct to say that students at the Wagga campus are represented by Rivcoll instead of CSUSA. - Gimboid13 02:39, 2 September 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No worries Eggman. I've changed the article in line with the above. - Gimboid13 00:33, 4 September 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Economies of scale[edit]

I am to assume then that you are an economist who can explain to me how a government is more "efficient" and serves customers/producers better when they buy in bulk rather than the free market, as you've simply denied rather than refuted my point on the talk page. In future, discuss matters on the talk page before making a change. We can start here, though. --Knucmo2 19:10, 14 September 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rhema FM[edit]

Hi Matturn,

I'm about to revert your change to Rhema FM. As the article states:

UCB no longer recognising affliations with other radio stations because it has ceased to act as an umberalla group and is now a broadcaster in its own right.

And I'll fix the gramatical problem shown in that quote as well. Blarneytherinosaur talk 07:15, 17 October 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fair enough. I did go to the UCB site, and found that they still had references to their licenced Rhema affiliates - this must be outdated content. Also, at the head of the list of Rhema's with other names, there's also a line that will need changing.
In addition, the dropping of the affiliates can't be a simple matter of them now being an Australian broadcaster in their own right. They've had Vision for a number of years now. That statement was one of the factors that made me think the Rhemas were still affiliated.
If the Rhemas are no longer with UCB, then how, if at all, are they joined together? This information needs to be added to the page. matturn 07:55, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
Retrieved from ""

The UBC site is out of date. I will send them an email to ask them to update it.

UCB has been operating Vision for years, but they hung on to the "peak body" moniker until this year, when they sent letters to the affiliates telling them so. This information may not have been published. Hopefully UCB will explain it when they update their website.

I've fixed the line about former Rhema stations with different names. The Rhema stations don't really have any formal links now, although they may have become members of the other peak body, the Association of Christian Broadcasters, which operated as an alternative to UCB for several years.

Accelerated Christian Education[edit]

Hi Matturn,

I notice that you have edited Accelerated Christian Education or Talk:Accelerated Christian Education. You may be aware that this article was tagged for clean up in September. I have started a rewrite of this article at Accelerated Christian Education/draft. Please take this opportunity to make improvements to this artlce.

Also note that material about the administration of the ACE curriculum in schools should be included in a new article at School of Tomorrow, not in the Accelerated Christian Education article.

Melbourne meetup in planning[edit]

Hello, you've indicated that you're interested in future Meetups in Melbourne on this list, so I'm giving you this message to remind you that Melbounre meetup number four is currently in planning. If you haven't already, please go to Wikipedia:Meetup/Melbourne to suggest possible dates, times and locations. Thanks --Michael Billington (talkcontribs) 03:03, 3 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Melbourne meetup[edit]

Greetings, person who is listed as being interested in future meetups in Melbourne. The fourth meetup will be held on 18 December, at Lower House in Fed Square (in the Alfred Deaking building, Flinders Street end near the Atrium: map), starting from 7pm. We don't currently have a separate location for discussion beforehand, but there'll be plenty of time to talk wiki over dinner. --bainer (talk) 15:03, 16 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have reverted your edits to the Australian Democrats article based on the fact that they were clearly plagiarised from the party's official website. You cannot copy and paste material from a website and claim it as your own work. You've been around here a long time - I cannot believe that you either do not know this or do not care. Rebecca 08:44, 25 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I wasn't claiming it as my own work, though I should've made that more clear. matturn 13:05, 25 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You were in a sense - when you make an edit there is a disclaimer on the edit page that says material you are adding is your own work. You cannot copy and paste material from websites without permission, even if you give a source. The material really needed to go in full - while it needs a history section, making one even by paraphrasing the website would still be plagiarism. Rebecca 00:23, 26 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fifth Melbourne meetup[edit]

The fifth meetup of Melbourne Wikipedians is being planned as a breakfast meeting in the city with Jimbo Wales (at a venue to be arranged) on Friday, 27 April 2007.

Jimbo has proposed breakfast as the one real window of opportunity during his tightly scheduled stay in Melbourne. Tbe precise time has to be sorted out with Jimbo, but the arrangements for the equivalent Adelaide meetup a few days before may give a good idea.

Feel free to edit the relevant page in any way that might be helpful. I feel like a bit of an interloper, not having attended previous meetups. If there's anything you can do to help, I'll be grateful. Please think about whether you'll be able to make it, assuming the arrangements are similar to those Adelaide is adopting (i.e. a block of time with people being fairly free to arrive when it suits them). Some indication on the page of your possible participation would be really helpful. Metamagician3000 06:28, 29 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Matilda Alliance[edit]

I've prodded Matilda Alliance because the stub doesn't explain what the alliance is or means or does or who proposed it or whether it has any chance of becoming reality and it doesn't establish notability, probably because it's not notable, because I'm sure if it were notable someone else might have written something about it in the last four years.
