Pembroke School, Adelaide[edit]

Hi, I changed the motto as I personally attend Pembroke and have been told the motto many times. The motto, as I’ve been told by our principle Mr Thompson, is "Unity is Strength". As such I will now edit the motto again, please leave it that way. Excharlie (talk) 00:25, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

I've had to revert your change again, to the actual wording on the school's website. We can't go with a translation based on your personal interpretation or opinion. Wikipedia just doesn't work that way - see the policy on verifiability. Cheers, Bahudhara (talk) 02:40, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

I’m not going on personal opinion. I actually go to Pembroke and this is what we are told the motto is. Plus, the direct translation is “Unity is Strength”. The principal gives speeches at assemblies and says the motto is “Unity is Strength”. Excharlie (talk) 04:21, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

That is just hearsay, and for Wikipedia, that is not considered a reliable source. The school website is considered a reliable source. Cheers, Bahudhara (talk) 11:42, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

not just pollies[edit]

corporate assistants get told by their bosses update our wikipedia page - they create usernames with the business/organisation and behave as if they are sanitising a wp article to look or sound like the corporate web page - at least one a month on my oversized watchlist, sometimes as much as once a week - in most cases they ignore messages, or give up... or in some cases persist before they are blocked...

there is one that keeps coming like a bad smell... [1] the edit history has more quacking ducks thsn a well stocked farm yard, it is like they never give up, regardless... JarrahTree 07:34, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Yes, I am aware of it, and that particular page was already on my watchist. Corporate spin is one thing, but I find it more egregious when pollies' flacks do it, and those messianic halos were particularly objectionable. Cheers, Bahudhara (talk) 07:46, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Old photo[edit]

Hi Bahudhara I just came across an OK B&W snap I took in the late 1950s of the duty policeman on the steps of Parliament House, Adelaide, and thought it might be of some interest. For at least five years he acted as a sort of concierge for MP's and parliamentary staff, and was a minor Adelaide celebrity. I'm pretty sure his name was Roy, but have forgotten his surname. Can you help? Doug butler (talk) 00:23, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi Doug, I can't help directly, but I've passed on your request to someone who is very good at this sort of sleuthing. Cheers, Bahudhara (talk) 03:07, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
It's good to have friends. Doug butler (talk) 05:22, 8 February 2021 (UTC)

I removed again the politically biased accusations in the Tree Planting article[edit]

apparently you don't get notifications when somebody is writing something to you on some talk page so I am telling you here that I removed again those controversial claims in the article. Why you think that people like Susan Nathan or some other person are a real and reliable sources for claims like "trees have been planted to restrict Bedouin herding" just because they made those claims in a book?. Israel definitely doesn't need trees to prevent bedouins from herding and they already need permissions for herding anyway. Israel also doesn't need trees to "erase traces of the Arab presence prior to 1948", may be some trees were planted on some land that was belonged to some village according to the ottoman or british rule but those lands weren't an actual part of the village and probably contained some trees and wild vegetation even before 1948. Why planting an entire forest if you can just bulldoze some abandoned buildings?. Those accusations doesn't make sense and are completely ridiculous --ThunderheadX (talk) 20:01, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
