OTD December 14Edit

Hi Adam, thanks for adding 1918 United Kingdom general election to WP:Selected anniversaries/December 14. Unfortunately, that article is not in very good shape, so I was unable to use it. If you have time to add references to it sometime before the 14th, we can get it back in. Thanks. howcheng {chat} 21:35, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Many ThanksEdit

 
Justice K.T Thomas

Adam Cuerden, I seriously doesn't know how to express how happy I am after seeing the wholehearted support. Many many thanks Adam Cuerden for encouraging me to try the same. Obviously I will be contributing more and more.

One more picture I have added recently, if you can have a look and if there is any correction, please retouch it. It is also, one of the rarest pictures because, picture of judge in robes is very less in wiki other than the scanned ones. Please have a look. DreamSparrow Chat 15:36, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Leila UsherEdit

Adam, I'm no technical expert with regard to restorations. Simply as a viewer, I'd like a little more contrast or sharpness, but maybe the image doesn't lend itself to that sort of manipulation. You're the restoration artist.

Women's events and developments in 1919Edit

Hi Adam. I see you replaced this with a redirect to 1919 in women's history but as far as I can see you did not incorporate any of the information in the article. I now find I can no longer access it. Have you any idea how I can retrieve it? It contains quite a lot of useful info I would have liked to include in our 2019 focus on Suffrage?--Ipigott (talk) 12:38, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

@Ipigott: That was actually a page move; 1919 in women's history should be exactly the same page with the suggested standardised title from the AfD. It is possible some of the information was edited out afterwards. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.9% of all FPs 14:32, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
1919 in women's history is not the problem. The article I am looking for is Women's events and developments in 1919. The article's history has disappeared. Perhaps Megalibrarygirl can help to retrieve it. No rush. This can of course wait until after the Christmas break.--Ipigott (talk) 15:10, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
@Ipigott: is the content different? Megalibrarygirl (talk) 17:27, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
My apologies to both Adam and Sue. For some reason, I was looking at 1919 rather than 1919 in women's history. I now see that everything is OK. So I'll be able to incorporate important events into our 2019 focus on Suffrage. Sorry to have bothered you both with this. My mistake. Enjoy the Christmas festivities.--Ipigott (talk) 08:02, 25 December 2018 (UTC)
No worries, Ipigott! Megalibrarygirl (talk) 18:45, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

Help, pleaseEdit

Adam, I wonder if I can prevail on you to work some magic, please? There's an illustration over 2 pages of The Builder, 1891, pages 890 & 891, of the side-elevation of Battersea Town Hall (aka New Parochial Offices, Battersea), in a huge PDF of The Builder, vol.61, 1891. I'm wondering if you'd be willing to use your mad skillz to snag the two images and join them together. And if you're completely in the spirit of things, there's a front-elevation of the same building on page 886 which has a distinct page-fold wrinkle bottom centre. Feel free to tun down the request - I know you're full of busy with suffragettes & such, but shy bairns get nothing, as they say. For copyright purposes, the architect died in 1908, so they're all PD. Thanks & season's greetings to you. Hope the leak didn't cause too much bother. --Tagishsimon (talk) 16:52, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

@Tagishsimon: I don't actually have a good PDF editor - thems cost money - but if you can get someone else to extract them, I'll stitch them. The image is by the architect? Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.9% of all FPs 17:29, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Adam. Yes, those are by Edward Mountford, or someone in his office. As to extracting, they're full page scans, so I think the only option is a screengrab ... I could do that, or you could? Can I show you a far more severe problem - https://twitter.com/Tagishsimon/status/1077254377864335360 - an entire window section lost in the fold. Would that be beyond repair? --Tagishsimon (talk) 17:55, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
Front elevation is already on Commons - https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:New_Parochial_Offices,_Battersea_-_Front_Elevation.png though tbh the wrinkle is unlikel to bother anyone. --Tagishsimon (talk) 17:56, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
You have email. --Tagishsimon (talk) 18:02, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

Merry Christmas!Edit

 
Methinks I see an heavenly Host
Of angels on the wing;
Methinks I hear their cheerful notes,
So merrily they sing.

Let all your fears be banished hence,
Glad tidings I proclaim;
For there's a Savior born today
And Jesus is his name.

Lay down your crooks and quit your flocks,
To Bethlehem repair;
And let your wandering steps be squared
By yonder shining star.

Seek not in courts or palaces;
Nor royal curtains draw;
But search the stable,
See your God extended on the straw.

Then learn from hence, ye rural swains,
The meekness of your God,
Who left the boundless realms of joy,
To ransom you with blood.

The master of the inn refused
A more commodious place;
Ungenerous soul of savage mold
And destitute of grace.

- from William Billings, "Shiloh"

High Court of Andhra PradeshEdit

Hi Adam,

I need an urgent help to create an article High Court of Andhra Pradesh [1]. This page was in existance and later merged with Telangana High Court. But now as per notification, President of India has assented to function a new High court at Amaravati as High Court of Andhra Pradesh from 01.01.2019. Since the existed page redirected to Telangana High Court, I am not able to start a new page with name High Court of Andhra Pradesh. Please help me to start a page.

6.3% of FPsEdit

That's an impressive number, Adam. Would you consider sharing the code? Best wishes, --Charlesjsharp (talk) 10:48, 9 January 2019 (UTC)


@Charlesjsharp: Sure. I should note that I'm piggybacking off some code from my User page, but the basic idea is simple enough. It needs to transclude a page, as the code's too long otherwise; in my case, User:Adam Cuerden/FPperc which has the following code:

{{#expr:{{User:Adam Cuerden/Current FP total}}/{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Featured pictures|files|R}}*100 round 1}}%

This is a fairly simple percentage calculation. {{PAGESINCATEGORY:Featured pictures|files|R}} is what it sounds like: the number of featured pictures, or as good of an estimate as we have. {{User:Adam Cuerden/Current FP total}} is the number of FPs I have.

Now, here you're probably going to want to do it slightly differently than I do. The code in Current FP total is {{#expr:387.75+{{User:Adam Cuerden}}}}

387.75 is the number of FPs in all years previous to this one - I used fractions for some collaborations - and {{User:Adam Cuerden}} ...Has a series of <noinclude> tags that mean the only thing actually returned is the number in the phrase "These 0 restorations from the first 1 months of 2019..."

You can probably simplify this. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.9% of all FPs 18:36, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks Adam, I tried to modify it, but failed! Charlesjsharp (talk) 22:01, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
@Charlesjsharp: Well, where do you want to put your FP count? I can help from there. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.9% of all FPs 23:53, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Success (well almost!) I've got the script working on my Commons home page for each category of my FPs. Strangely, it seems to work if I change the R}}*100 round 1} to R}}*1 round 1} except for the reptlies category. --Charlesjsharp (talk) 09:35, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Featured picture adviceEdit

Hey Adam. I am trying to improve my photographic skills and was hoping you could give me advice. For something like c:File:BSPP_Male_Straight_Thread.png, what could I improve to make it FP eligible? I may have to setup my lightbox to shoot it in. The subjects are pretty small, so I could use a macro lens to take the shots with better clarity and focus (my other photos have issues there). What do you suggest? Kees08 (Talk) 00:44, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

PicturesEdit

Thank you for your offer of help chez Rossini. All contributions gratefully received. If you have a further moment, I wonder if you can find any suitable pictures to illustrate Cavalcade which I've just given a wash-and-brush-up. I can't find a blessed thing, and the text is rather slab-like without any pictorial relief. Tim riley talk 16:00, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

@Tim riley: Ooh, that's a bit harder. The trouble is that modern plays don't more-or-less-default to having something out of copyright. I think the best option might be a picture of A. the theatre it was performed in, and B. Noel Coward. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.9% of all FPs 17:55, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Fair enough! I'm half sorry that an image expert is stumped and half relieved that I haven't missed something obvious. Thank you anyway! Tim riley talk 18:13, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
@Tim riley: Okay. Here's my suggestions:
  • https://www.loc.gov/resource/ggbain.38534/ is damaged pretty irrepairably, but only on the legs, so we can probably crop something for Coward himself from it
  • Soldiers of the Queen" is from Patience, right? I can get a poster for that, no problem. You should cover the sources of the music anyway. There's a contemporary recording of Alexander's Ragtime Band on its page, I believe, and if you list the music properly, I can get a list.
  • The Relief of Mafeking is probably coverable through images, likewise Victoria's funeral, the sinking of the Titanic, and, of course, the First World War. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.9% of all FPs 18:17, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

DinorahEdit

Adam, can you please, PLEASE take that poster, which is lovely, out of the Meyerbeer template on the article Dinorah and put it somewhere else in the article and restore Meyerbeer's picture in the template? I tried to do it myself but I cannot figure it out. It is very important to me,call it a weird quirk, that the composers on the articles I work on the most - Meyerbeer, Handel,Offenbach - have their pictures at the top of the page and the same picture every time, it unifies their articles. I would really appreciate it.Smeat75 (talk) 00:34, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

I found an earlier version you had with the poster lower down and Meyerbeer's picture at the top so I restored it. I hope you don't mind.Smeat75 (talk) 00:40, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
@Smeat75: Understood, although we really should change the image of Meyerbeer overall - there's photos of him, you know. https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b531202483.r=meyerbeer?rk=386268;0 maybe? After some levels tweaks? Or https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b84542968/f1.item.r=Meyerbeer.zoom ? Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.3% of all FPs 04:15, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
If you would like to change the template image to one of those photos,that is fine with me. I just want an image of the composer at the top of the page. I like the first of those two the best, but I am sure whatever you choose will be excellent. Thanks for all your great images.Smeat75 (talk) 13:36, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Feedback?Edit

Hey there,

I've only done a couple restorations in the past, and find I second guess myself about what can/should be repaired/adjusted. Would you mind taking a quick look at one I uploaded to give your opinion?

Noted your work and its value for WP -- are you interested in receiving requests to work on images for other editors? _ _ _ _ 83d40m (talk) 09:11, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

@83d40m: Within reason. I do kind of need decent quality bases to work from, though - a 400z600px image is limited in how much you can do, and an extremely damaged image you need to be passionate about to push through. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.3% of all FPs 13:56, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

WikiCup 2019 March newsletterEdit

And so ends the first round of the competition. Everyone with a positive score moves on to Round 2. With 56 contestants qualifying, each group in Round 2 contains seven contestants, with the two leaders from each group due to qualify for Round 3 as well as the top sixteen remaining contestants.

Our top scorers in Round 1 were:

  •   L293D, a WikiCup newcomer, led the field with ten good articles on submarines for a total of 357 points.
  •   Adam Cuerden, a WikiCup veteran, came next with 274 points, mostly from eight featured pictures, restorations of artwork.
  •   MPJ-DK, a wrestling enthusiast, was in third place with 263 points, garnered from a featured list, five good articles, two DYKs and four GARs.
  •   Usernameunique came next at 243, with a featured article and a good article, both on ancient helmets.
  •   Squeamish Ossifrage was in joint fifth place with 224 points, mostly garnered from bringing the 1937 Fox vault fire to featured article status.
  •   Ed! was also on 224, with an amazing number of good article reviews (56 actually).

These contestants, like all the others, now have to start scoring points again from scratch. Between them, contestants completed reviews on 143 good articles, one hundred more than the number of good articles they claimed for, thus making a substantial dent in the review backlog. Well done all!

Remember that any content promoted after the end of Round 1 but before the start of Round 2 can be claimed in Round 2. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews.

If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Request for restorationEdit

Hi Adam, would you be willing to restore a photo of Marie Curie? It looks like one of these has already had some restoration work, but it's lost detail in the process, while another is probably a zoom of the same photo. I think that one of your restoration jobs would be great, probably on the photo that I'm putting on the left of this gallery. --Pine 03:58, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Photo restoration?Edit

If you're need something to work on, I'd appreciate if you could consider File:Csepel NH87669.jpg.

WikiCup 2019 May newsletterEdit

The second round of the 2019 WikiCup has now finished. Contestants needed to scored 32 points to advance into round 3. Our top four scorers in round 2 all scored over 400 points and were:

  •   Cas Liber (1210), our winner in 2016, with two featured articles and three DYKs. He also made good use of the bonus points available, more than doubling his score by choosing appropriate articles to work on.
  •   Kosack (750), last year's runner up, with an FA, a GA, two FLs, and five DYKs.
  •   Adam Cuerden (480), a WikiCup veteran, with 16 featured pictures, mostly restorations.
  •   Zwerg Nase (461), a seasoned competitor, with a FA, a GA and an ITN item.

Other notable performances were put in by   Barkeep49 with six GAs,   Ceranthor,   Lee Vilenski, and   Canada Hky, each with seven GARs, and   MPJ-DK with a seven item GT.

So far contestants have achieved nine featured articles between them and a splendid 80 good articles. Commendably, 227 GARs have been completed during the course of the 2019 WikiCup, so the backlog of articles awaiting GA review has been reduced as a result of contestants' activities. The judges are pleased with the thorough GARs that are being performed, and have hardly had to reject any. As we enter the third round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 2 but before the start of round 3 can be claimed in round 3. Remember too that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article nominations, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Aletta Jacobs, FYIEdit

When the article was approved for GA, I nominated it for DYK, but in discussing it, some editors don't want to hold it until the 18 September centennial for women's suffrage in the Netherlands. At any rate, per the discussion, when the FP passes, they will reserve the date and I'll just cancel the DYK. Again, I thank you for all of your help on these photos. Your work is so amazing!

Hello Adam! I want to nominate another picture which is featured in Arthur Rostron, the one he is with Margaret Brown, but I'm unsure as you close in the pixelation and points when you zoom. I downloaded GIMP but don't understand English so I cannot better it. Can you check it if it's suitable for FP nomination? I don't want to be annoying on that beautiful section. Kind regards. --LLcentury (talk) 16:11, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

POTD for 8 JuneEdit

Thanks for scheduling your restoration of the Coldstream Guards for Saturday's POTD. I feel, however, that Facial hair in the British military might not be the best choice for the target article. Wikipedia:Featured pictures/People/Military captions the image with Coldstream Guards, which I think is a more apt caption for the image; POTD appearances also tend to follow the featured picture directory in this regard. To this end, I've decided to replace the target article with Coldstream Guards, including rewriting the blurb with text adapted from there, as well as providing information pertaining to the provenance, etc. of the picture itself. See also User talk:Amakuru#POTD for 8 June. If you have any concerns with my blurb, feel free to discuss them on my talk page. Once again, thank you and happy birthday! — RAVENPVFF · talk · 15:31, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

@Ravenpuff: That seems fair. My birthday's on the 8th, and I thought Facial hair in the military had a bit more directly immediate context for the Crimean War, and also might be a bit more fun. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.6% of all FPs 20:28, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Requesting your expertise...Edit

...on another FPC submission.

I'd love to get a work by Martha Ann Honeywell featured - I'd prefer the cutout shown in the article, but I wouldn't necessarily mind one of the silhouettes. What do you think? Any of them work, or are there issues with them? --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 03:20, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

@Ser Amantio di Nicolao: I think the cutout is best. People may complain the tiny text is unreadable, and say it's not high enough resolution, a transcription may help alleviate such claims. I'd say it's at least worth a try. I don't think the silhouette currently in the article would pass, because of reproduction issues, though. By the way, while looking it up, I discovered https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/14049 - and the commentary on the embroidery school this comes from, which is probably well worth an article. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.6% of all FPs 03:48, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, there are concerns about all four of the silhouettes on Commons. Others are available - I'd just need to upload them. Still, I prefer the cutout for a number of reasons. Thanks for the advice - I'll try to get it up at FPC tomorrow.
Thanks for the pointer to the sampler. I know of at least one other similar embroidery school that would likely be worth writing up. I'm going to be going out of town for a few weeks beginning a week from Wednesday, so I'll put it on my to-do list to look into upon my return. There's a lot in the way of American folk culture that I think is worth pursuing, both for WiR and separate from it. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 04:22, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

Valentina TereshkovaEdit

I recall you asking somewhere for suggestions for photos to touch up. Perhaps File:RIAN archive 612748 Valentina Tereshkova.jpg would be a good candidate. I think it might not be salvageable, but it would be good for documenting the history of spaceflight if it was. Otherwise, perhaps File:RIAN archive 159271 Nikita Khrushchev, Valentina Tereshkova, Pavel Popovich and Yury Gagarin at Lenin Mausoleum.jpg. There are many images of her on Commons, you may be able to find a more encyclopedic version than I have found. If you have no time for it, no worries. Kees08 (Talk) 07:40, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

FP again, sorry profuselyEdit

Hi Adam, I am a pain in the neck I know, but I am newbie in the section. Do my nominations for Byun Yo-han and Tensai Okamura need to be added to "needing feedback" as they are about to close? Or not? Thanks! --LLcentury (talk) 12:23, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Adam, I don't know if it happens to you, FP is an awesome place, but it's extremely frustrating when nobody gives a iota about FPcs needing feedback.

File:SMS Arcona.png into File:SMS Arcona NH 65764 - Restoration.pngEdit

Hi Adam Cuerden, I have gone ahead and HistMerged File:SMS Arcona.png into File:SMS Arcona NH 65764 - Restoration.png (before deleting the former). As a general/friendly note for the future, if you happen to upload a file under the wrong name, please request a file move (see Template:Rename media) rather than re-upload and nominating for deletion. Thanks!   --TheSandDoctor Talk 04:58, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

Honestly, by the time I realised there was a problem, it was too late. See, the former is the name of the file on my computer, and at some point, I managed to upload under the file name on my computer - while (as far as I can tell) the file with my desired name still existed.

WikiCup 2019 July newsletterEdit

The third round of the 2019 WikiCup has now come to an end. The 16 users who made it to the fourth round needed to score at least 68 points, which is substantially lower than last year's 227 points. Our top scorers in round 3 were:

  •   Cas Liber, our winner in 2016, with 500 points derived mainly from a featured article and two GAs on natural history topics
  •   Adam Cuerden, with 480 points, a tally built on 16 featured pictures, the result of meticulous restoration work
  •   SounderBruce, a finalist in the last two years, with 306 points from a variety of submissions, mostly related to sport or the State of Washington
  •   Usernameunique, with 305 points derived from a featured article and two GAs on archaeology and related topics

Contestants managed 4 (5) featured articles, 4 featured lists, 18 featured pictures, 29 good articles, 50 DYK entries, 9 ITN entries, and 39 good article reviews. As we enter the fourth round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 3 but before the start of round 4 can be claimed in round 4. Please also remember that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them, and it is imperative to claim them in the correct round; one FA claim had to be rejected because it was incorrectly submitted (claimed in Round 3 when it qualified for Round 2), so be warned! When doing GARs, please make sure that you check that all the GA criteria are fully met.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article nominations, a featured process, or anything else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Picture for restoration?Edit

I just uploaded a picture from Gallica that's in pretty bad shape. It might be something you'd be interested in restoring: File:Inauguration du monument aux victimes de la Iéna.jpeg--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 14:45, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

@Sturmvogel 66: Remind me to make a guide to uploading from Gallica. There was a higher resolution file I grabbed. As for restoration, I don't think it'll ever be an FP, but I can play with contrast, restore a bit and crop it. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.8% of all FPs 15:04, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
That would be great if you could do so as I'm not that familiar with it. Yeah, it's in too bad a shape to be clean enough for FP, but whatever you can do to clean it up would be very nice and much appreciated as my photo restoration skills are limited to adjusting levels at best.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 15:14, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

@Sturmvogel 66: I'm not going to claim it's amazing. It's really not, but how's that? It's probably at least not AS bad. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.8% of all FPs 20:14, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

@GRuban: Thank you, mobile editing is terrible. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.8% of all FPs 21:26, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
Adam Cuerden, there is also another interesting idea by Jmchutchinson of doing the whole set as either a montage, or as a series. The montage would be a large file of all the photos in a 3x3 format. The series would have Nadar #1 as the lead meaning their genitalia would de minimis when it first loads but you can scroll to see the others. Do you have enough time to do the whole series? --- Coffeeandcrumbs 16:18, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
@Coffeeandcrumbs: Um, have you seen the whole series? https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b10535903f.r=hermaphrodite?rk=193134;0 or https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b105359685.r=hermaphrodite?rk=171674;4 ? I think having people touching or sticking fingers into genitalia is going to be more problematic. I can do the whole series, but I'd only advocate for about 6 being mainpagable. And, of course, that presumes Amakuru dossn't announce it's standard procedure to censor FPs on the main page - which hadn't been true since Dream of the Fishwife around 2006 - and thus encourages people to apply the supposedly standard censorship. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.8% of all FPs 01:40, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
It's probably not worth the work. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 01:44, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Editing News #1—July 2019Edit

Read this in another languageSubscription list for this multilingual newsletter

Did you know?

Did you know that you can use the visual editor on a mobile device?

Every article has a pencil icon at the top. Tap on the pencil icon   to start editing.

Edit Cards

This is what the new Edit Cards for editing links in the mobile visual editor look like. You can try the prototype here: 📲 Try Edit Cards.

Welcome back to the Editing newsletter.

Since the last newsletter, the team has released two new features for the mobile visual editor and has started developing three more. All of this work is part of the team's goal to make editing on mobile web simpler.

Before talking about the team's recent releases, we have a question for you:

Are you willing to try a new way to add and change links?

If you are interested, we would value your input! You can try this new link tool in the mobile visual editor on a separate wiki.

Follow these instructions and share your experience:

📲 Try Edit Cards.

Recent releasesEdit

The mobile visual editor is a simpler editing tool, for smartphones and tablets using the mobile site. The Editing team has recently launched two new features to improve the mobile visual editor:

  1. Section editing
    • The purpose is to help contributors focus on their edits.
    • The team studied this with an A/B test. This test showed that contributors who could use section editing were 1% more likely to publish the edits they started than people with only full-page editing.
  2. Loading overlay
    • The purpose is to smooth the transition between reading and editing.

Section editing and the new loading overlay are now available to everyone using the mobile visual editor.

New and active projectsEdit

This is a list of our most active projects. Watch these pages to learn about project updates and to share your input on new designs, prototypes and research findings.

  • Edit cards: This is a clearer way to add and edit links, citations, images, templates, etc. in articles. You can try this feature now. Go here to see how: 📲Try Edit Cards.
  • Mobile toolbar refresh: This project will learn if contributors are more successful when the editing tools are easier to recognize.
  • Mobile visual editor availability: This A/B test asks: Are newer contributors more successful if they use the mobile visual editor? We are collaborating with 20 Wikipedias to answer this question.
  • Usability improvements: This project will make the mobile visual editor easier to use.  The goal is to let contributors stay focused on editing and to feel more confident in the editing tools.

Looking aheadEdit

  • Wikimania: Several members of the Editing Team will be attending Wikimania in August 2019. They will lead a session about mobile editing in the Community Growth space. Talk to them about how editing can be improved.
  • Talk Pages: In the coming months, the Editing Team will begin improving talk pages and communication on the wikis.

Learning moreEdit

The VisualEditor on mobile is a good place to learn more about the projects we are working on. The team wants to talk with you about anything related to editing. If you have something to say or ask, please leave a message at Talk:VisualEditor on mobile.

DYK for Jeanne Laisné (soprano)Edit

 On 4 August 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Jeanne Laisné (soprano), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Jeanne Laisné appeared as Aurore in the 1894 world premiere of Massenet's Le portrait de Manon, a sequel to his Manon? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Jeanne Laisné (soprano).

Potential FPsEdit

Hi! I ran across this archive when looking for something else and it seems that most, if not all, of the pics are CC-BY-2.0 and thus uploadable to Commons. (I particularly like this photo for some reason.) I haven't gotten around to uploading them since I'm swamped right now and for some, couldn't figure out what categories to stick them under. You're probably swamped too, but I figured it's better to let you know about the archive anyways. All the best! -Yupik (talk) 19:57, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

August BugleEdit

Hi Adam, thanks as always for the FP section. I'm not sure about Sally Ride though as I don't think she was ever in the military, unlike the other astronaut subjects of the images (well not Ron McNair either but two other guys in his picture were). Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 11:50, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

AdviceEdit

Adam, I wonder if I could pester you for some advice; while hunting around for images on the English Civil War, I came across these two images on Commons: File:Charles Landseer - The Eve of the Battle of Edge Hill, 1642 - Google Art Project.jpg and File:William Frederick Yeames - And when did you last see your father? - Google Art Project.jpg. The latter has quite a few black spots that need tidying, but beyond that I wondered what work you thought might be needed on either of them to gain Featured status?

WikiCup 2019 September newsletterEdit

The fourth round of the competition has finished in a flurry of last minute activity, with 454 points being required to qualify for the final round. It was a hotly competitive round with two contestants with over 400 points being eliminated, and all but two of the finalists having achieved an FA during the round. Casliber, our 2016 winner, was the highest point-scorer, followed by Enwebb and Lee Vilenski, who are both new to the competition. In fourth place was SounderBruce, a finalist last year. But all those points are swept away as we start afresh for the final round.

Round 4 saw the achievement of 11 featured articles. In addition, Adam Cuerden scored with 18 FPs, Lee Vilenski led the GA score with 8 GAs while Kosack performed 15 GA reviews. There were around 40 DYKs, 40 GARs and 31 GAs overall during round 4. Even though contestants performed more GARs than they achieved GAs, there was still some frustration at the length of time taken to get articles reviewed.

As we start round 5, we say goodbye to the eight competitors who didn't quite make it; thank you for the useful contributions you have made to the Cup and Wikipedia, and we hope you will join us again next year. Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 4 but before the start of round 5 can be claimed in round 5. Remember too that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them (some people have fallen foul of this rule and the points have been removed).

If you are concerned that your nomination, whether it be for a good article, a featured process, or anything else, will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.
