Calvin discovers WikipediaEdit

  • "A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction into a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day." -- Calvin, of Calvin and Hobbes. --Guy Macon 7&6=thirteen () 13:55, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

Your advice on Zava articleEdit

Hi. Can you please take a look at Draft:Zava? It is a properly stated conflict of interest contribution currently being reviewed. It is my first article on telemedicine and I would appreciate your advice on whether something could/should be improved. It has been reviewed by doomsdayer520 who left very helpful comments at the article's talk page, but I would also like to hear your suggestions. Thank you in advance! -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 20:54, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

Unsourced articlesEdit

Articles with no sources should be removed. Why do you think the encyclopedia is better off for dozens of articles like Baby Puss? ―Justin (koavf)TCM 00:39, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

And why do you think articles are better without short descriptions? ―Justin (koavf)TCM 00:48, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
User:Koavf I did not intend to eliminate "short descrioptions." Feel free to put tyem back
These articles are useful information, all of which antedate the internet, So sources are hard to find. My "feeling" is that deleting them diminishes the content of Wikipedia.
Why do you think their systematic eradication (without bothering to WP:AFD them), is an improvement? You found a clever way to achieve a result without honoring required process. 7&6=thirteen () 03:25, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
[[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]], Because I'm not deleting them nor do I think they should be deleted: they are useful as redirects. Saying, "I can't find sources for this but trust me, it's important" flies in the face of fundamental principles of Wikipedia: WP:OR, WP:SOURCE, WP:NOTABLE. There are a lot of cartoons: if we don't use sources to establish notability and facts about them, how do we decide which ones to include or not? ―Justin (koavf)TCM 03:34, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
@Koavf: I agree that we have procedures and it is best to use the process without acting unilaterally. AfD is an important step, or a discussion on talk page or the articles to get to consensus. Lightburst (talk) 03:35, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

New Page Review newsletter September-October 2019Edit

Hello 7&6=thirteen,

Backlog

Instead of reaching a magic 300 as it once did last year, the backlog approaching 6,000 is still far too high. An effort is also needed to ensure that older unsuitable older pages at the back of the queue do not get automatically indexed for Google.

Coordinator

A proposal is taking place here to confirm a nominated user as Coordinator of NPR.

This month's refresher course

Why I Hate Speedy Deleters, a 2008 essay by long since retired Ballonman, is still as valid today. Those of us who patrol large numbers of new pages can be forgiven for making the occasional mistake while others can learn from their 'beginner' errors. Worth reading.

Deletion tags

Do bear in mind that articles in the feed showing the trash can icon (you will need to have 'Nominated for deletion' enabled for this in your filters) may have been tagged by inexperienced or non NPR rights holders using Twinkle. They require your further verification.

Paid editing

Please be sure to look for the tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary. WMF policy requires paid editors to connect to their adverts.

Subject-specific notability guidelines' (SNG). Alternatives to deletion
  • Reviewers are requested to familiarise themselves once more with notability guidelines for organisations and companies.
  • Blank-and-Redirect is a solution anchored in policy. Please consider this alternative before PRODing or CSD. Note however, that users will often revert or usurp redirects to re-create deleted articles. Do regularly patrol the redirects in the feed.
Not English
  • A common issue: Pages not in English or poor, unattributed machine translations should not reside in main space even if they are stubs. Please ensure you are familiar with WP:NPPNE. Check in Google for the language and content, and if they do have potential, tag as required, then move to draft. Modify the text of the template as appropriate before sending it.
Tools

Regular reviewers will appreciate the most recent enhancements to the New Pages Feed and features in the Curation tool, and there are still more to come. Due to the wealth of information now displayed by ORES, reviewers are strongly encouraged to use the system now rather than Twinkle; it will also correctly populate the logs.

Stub sorting, by SD0001: A new script is available for adding/removing stub tags. See User:SD0001/StubSorter.js, It features a simple HotCat-style dynamic search field. Many of the reviewers who are using it are finding it an improvement upon other available tools.

Assessment: The script at User:Evad37/rater makes the addition of Wikiproject templates extremely easy. New page creators rarely do this. Reviewers are not obliged to make these edits but they only take a few seconds. They can use the Curation message system to let the creator know what they have done.

DannyS712 bot III is now patrolling certain categories of uncontroversial redirects. Curious? Check out its patrol log.
