Your signatureEdit

Hello Alfie,

I would like to respectfully request that you change your signature. Our guideline on signatures says:

"Signatures on Wikipedia identify you as a user and your contributions to Wikipedia. They encourage civility in discussions by identifying the author of a particular comment and the date and time at which it was made. Because of that, having an uncivil signature is strongly discouraged (in some cases, to the point of blocking the user until it is changed). In general, anything that is not allowed in a username should not be used in a signature either."

In my opinion, your signature amounts to a polemic and an attack on Wikipedia's decision making model. You may have good points to make but trying to do so in your signature appears disruptive to me. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 20:12, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

@Cullen328: Heh, I wondered how long that would last. I disagree, but in the interest of collaboration I shall change it! Have a good one. -- a they/them | argue | contribs 20:17, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank you very much. I appreciate it. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 20:18, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

New page reviewer grantedEdit

Hi Alfie. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group. Please check back at WP:PERM in case your user right is time limited or probationary. This user group allows you to review new pages through the Curation system and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or nominate them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is vital to maintaining the integrity of the encylopedia. If you have not already done so, you must read the tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the deletion policy. If you need any help or want to discuss the process, you are welcome to use the new page reviewer talk page. In addition, please remember:

  • Be nice to new editors. They are usually not aware that they are doing anything wrong. Do make use of the message feature when tagging pages for maintenance so that they are aware.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted. Please be formal and polite in your approach to them – even if they are not.
  • If you are not sure what to do with a page, don't review it – just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Accuracy is more important than speed. Take your time to patrol each page. Use the message feature to communicate with article creators and offer advice as much as possible.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you also may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In cases of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, or long-term inactivity, the right may be withdrawn at administrator discretion. Barkeep49 (talk) 18:49, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Welcome to New Page Patrol!Edit

Welcome, Alfie to the New Page Patrol team.

Congratulations on receiving the New Page Patrol user permission and on becoming a part of the patroller community. Our mission is to accurately, rather than quickly, handle the new articles which are created. As you begin to patrol it's natural to have lots of questions. Feel free to ask on my talk page or ask for thoughts in the New Page Patroller IRC channel #wikimedia-npp connect or on our Discord server (invite link). We also regularly discuss issues and topics surrounding New Page Patrolling at the NPP discussion page and I would invite you to join us there. If you have any questions please feel free to ask me. I hope you find NPP as rewarding as I do and, again, welcome to the community. Barkeep49 (talk) 18:49, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
