I have gone ahead and made, you an admin (sysop); on the New Zealand Wikicity, hope you don't object (So you can remove spam, vandalism, etc, faster).

To answer your question, yes it is a genuine wikicity, I have just added it to the central Wikicities list.

Yes I’m guilty, I based the site notice, on the New Zealand wiki; from the one on the you wrote Maori Wikipedia :)  :)

I have put a copy of this massage on your en wikipedia talk page Brian | (Talk) 00:15, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

Babel template etc. Edit

Trying to learn how to use babel. Regarding images, you can use my images wherever you want. Only thing is, please let me know what you are doing so that I need not duplicate.

Link given below to avoid waste of time of yours.
Many times I do not get connected to internet. Do not know why? What happens there?

Visit NZ places Edit

We visited NZ places two years back only. I do not think I can write anything on that. Still, shall think over. However you have mentioned something on Quit India and my images. Can you please elaborate. I am always here to help you. This would be a very small return.

Blueskin Bay Counselling Edit

Thanks for the feedback on the page being rather long now, I agree with your observation. I would not place a counselling service in a personal context as I am running a business. That the service I offer is of a highly personal nature doesn't negate from the fact it is a business on offer to the local population. Hope this makes sense for you.

Ad free Edit

Hi! Would you like this wiki to be ad-free? I'm looking for wikis to be part of a new program which would remove all ads from the wiki for $19.95/month.

If you are interested, please visit here to sign up. Let me know if you have any questions! - sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 20:17, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

What's in a name Edit

Why is this wikia simply called New Zealand and not New Zealand Wiki? Mr Taz (talk) 02:49, January 2, 2014 (UTC)

You could ask the Founder. Seems unnecessary to add the word "Wiki" though. -- Robin Patterson (Talk) 02:57, January 2, 2014 (UTC)

Weet-Bix vs WeetaBix Edit

Could information about the difference between Weet-Bix' and WeetaBix be added?Mr Taz (talk) 19:34, April 12, 2018 (UTC)

Of course. Preferably written by someone who has experienced the difference. I recently asked a cousin visiting from Scotland, but he could not describe the difference. -- Robin Patterson (Talk) 01:13, April 13, 2018 (UTC)

Thanks! Edit

Hi, thanks for the welcome! The reason I proposed Category:New Zealanders for deletion is because Category:People from New Zealand already exists. Not sure why I didn't give a reason for deletion, but I will make sure I do so in future. Best wishes, Danochy (talk) 05:43, May 16, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for making the change, however I noticed that you chose the category to be Category:New Zealand people. The text at the top of Category:New Zealand, however, says categories shouldn't start with "New Zealand", so I feel Category:People from New Zealand is a more appropriate choice. Thanks, Danochy (talk) 12:37, May 18, 2020 (UTC)
Yes, there is a "conflict" between two ideals there. In my experience, having category names that match Wikipedia exactly has much practical value. Wikipedia seems to have changed its mind on this one so I went along with it. The only real disadvantage of starting a page name with "New Zealand" is that you need to use a variation of the pipe trick to get sensible listing in parent categories. --- Robin Patterson (Talk) 23:11, May 18, 2020 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Thanks for the explanation. Danochy (talk) 13:05, May 21, 2020 (UTC)
