Category:2012 Leeton SunRice Festival[edit]

Hi, Bidgee, I noticed your edit, though I do not quite understand what you mean when saying " makes it impossible to find". Thank you for your time. Face-smile.svg Lotje (talk) 10:05, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Well you'll need to jump though many hoops, by removing the main category (yes, not ideal having it but worse but not having it).
I hope you get the idea above as to why I state "makes it impossible to find". Bidgee (talk) 02:08, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Category:Buildings in Bathurst[edit]

I don't see why I should redirect Building in Bathurst to Building in Bathurst, New South Wales. Building in Bathurst could be at best a disambiguation page, since there are in the world at least three towns named "Bathurst", all of them with their own buildings. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 16:48, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

I don't see the point in keeping the chronology of a category which has no copyright issues involved like in a wikipedia article (which is why we keep chronology), hence I don't even understand why you're still complaining about that. Anyway, since you seem to be passionate about the topic, I saved the category's chronology so I guess we all are satisfied now. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 09:46, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
I didn't mean to be rude, but as we know the main rationale of keeping chronology is for copyright issues, which is not much an issue for categories -- Ok, hereinafter I'll move them. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 12:25, 6 February 2015 (UTC)


Hi there, the actual restaurants of McDonald's are categorised in Category:McDonald's restaurants. This again is categorised under Category:Hamburger restaurants, which is a subcategory of Category:Fast food restaurants. The overall Category:McDonald's on the other hand, also contains museums, office buildings etcetera and it is therefore that I feel that it should not be categorised under Category:Fast food restaurants. - Takeaway (talk) 23:59, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Rodger that, I wasn't too sure why it was removed (I did have an edit summary but seems it didn't show) and have a bit on my mind ATM. Bidgee (talk) 11:56, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
I used HotCat to remove the category, and unfortunately HotCat doesn't give much of an edit summary. Regards, Takeaway (talk) 12:02, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Sydney Japanese International School[edit]

Are you interested in photographing the Sydney Japanese International School? It's at 112 Booralie Road, Terrey Hills, NSW 2084 Australia. It's unique among overseas Japanese schools since it actively includes Australian local children as students.

If you are interested in other ideas please let me know and I'll give you some others. Thanks! WhisperToMe (talk) 16:40, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Not sure when I'll be in Sydney next, quite busy with university and my other volunteering roles, which includes travelling to Melbourne and Nowra. Sorry. Bidgee (talk) 07:34, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Ah, ok. I do have photo requests in Melbourne too if you're interested WhisperToMe (talk) 08:58, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Toyota Corona[edit]

Any reason for reversion of my edits to restore two Toyota Corona images back to factory specification? I note that you did not leave an explanation for your reversion which is odd considering the time I spent making the edits. OSX II (talk) 01:02, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

I suggest you read COM:OVERWRITE. Bidgee (talk) 03:16, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

File:Apis mellifera feeding on nectar from a Corymbia ficifolia flower.jpg[edit]

If you look in Category:Corymbia ficifolia you see it is a Myrtales flower. --Kersti (talk) 06:20, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

No need to be flipping rude about it, sheesh. To be honest, you need to brush up the use of the rollback tool or have it removed.
As far as I'm concerned, I'm done with this project. I'm not going to be contributing any further content. Bidgee (talk) 01:54, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

File:Wolf spider and egg sack.jpg[edit]

Why did you revert the changes on this file? This is by no means a wolf spiders. These carry their cocoons at their spinnerets, not under the prosoma, and their eye field is completely different. --Mhohner (talk) 11:33, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Food for thought[edit]

Wouldn't it be better to have

  • Regional Express aircraft on final approach at Sydney Airport


  • Regional Express Saab 340 aircraft on final approach at Sydney Airport [option 1, if disam is required]


  • Regional Express aircraft on final approach at Sydney Airport (Saab 340) [option 2, if disam is required]

Rather then;

  • Aircraft on final approach at Sydney Airport
  • Saab 340 at Sydney Airport
  • Saab 340 on final approach
  • Regional Express aircraft at Sydney Airport

Just a thought... Bidgee (talk) 12:56, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

I see final approach, landing etc as an attribute of the aircraft model, not the airline. I.e. the destinations etc are an attribute of the airline, but flying characteristics are an attribute of the airplane type. An airplane type XYZ lands the same way for any airline. I think categories like Saab 340 landing at Sydney Airport would be over-categorization. I am available to discus this ! Rcbutcher (talk) 13:09, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Category:Scania K94UB[edit]

An explanation would not fit on one line, so I do it here. First of all I understand that we don't fully agree on what is best practice, based on earlier encounters. As you may have noticed, about one month ago I changed so that Category:Scania K-series and similar N and F are exclusively related to the current range (post 4-series). Despite my effort, I could not find one single use of the term "K-series" or similar by Scania officially prior to its introduction with the current range in 2005. (It may however have been used by some local distributor in some country prior to that, but local variants should not be considered at that level anyway.) Then it would be both historically and technically incorrect to use the current marketing name on the older ones, so I instead introduced the Category:Scania K chassis which even includes similar chassis before they were given the letter K at the introduction of the 2-series. (BR85, BR115 and BR145 in "0-series" and BR86 and BR116 in "1-series", but only one of these have been created yet due to lack of content.) Those updates were in line with my updates to the Scania article on English Wikipedia and the timelines that can be found at the bottom of the page there. However I was not sure what to do with K UB, K EB, N UB, etc., as they kind of fit both in the current range and to some extent in the 4-series. I have only found one source using N UB, K EB, etc. explicitly about the 4-series, which can be found here: Scania data sheets (choose Chassis range). Back then I didn't decide about it, but last week I decided that it would be best not to mix models from the 4-series and the current range within those cagetories. I am truly not sure what would be the best solution for this, but if the answer is that K UB should contain both 4-series and K-series models, my edits of last week should be reverted on the other models of the 4-series too.

John Robertson[edit]

See John Robertson. Apart that there's several people named John Robertson, at least two of whom are politicians who come from New South Wales, the disambiguation was inconsistent. Usually the disambiguation is by occupation and, whereas two or more persons share the same occupation, by year of birth. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 15:28, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Image reversion[edit]

I do not comprehend your comments at ... I removed the ridiculous background cleanly and lightened the image, helping people to see the subject. Why do you feel you have the right to claim this was done badly and to destroy this work without so much as leaving a comment? Pratyeka (talk) 01:49, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

I gave you constructive and valid criticism, that is your problem if you don't want to take that on board. Bidgee (talk) 08:51, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

Rio Olympics 2016[edit]

Hello, Bidgee!
I wanted to know if you are planning to do photo-journalism for Rio Olympics at en.wn? Laura Hale told me to ask you if you wanted some support there. Let us know about it.
