Peer Review SuggestionEdit

Hey AndyZ, awesome script, when the program does the auto-formatting per MoS, it replace can't to can not, and don't to do not. I'm not sure if it is possible but would it be possible to stop if from changing that when the words are inside "quotations". once again, i don't know if this is possible, just a thought.

Once again awesome script, DTGardner 15:42, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:JS peer reviewer-preview.png)Edit

Thanks for uploading Image:JS peer reviewer-preview.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. —Remember the dot (talk) 21:24, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Peer Reviewer InstallationEdit

Hi there! For some reason, I'm unable to install the PR into my monobook.js file. I have inserted the line "{{subst:js|User:AndyZ/peerreviewer.js}}" and bypassed my cache over and over again, but the "peer review" button does not appear in an edit mode of an article. I'm very puzzled; there is no other script in my .js file, and I have repeatedly cleared my cache until I went insane. Could you help me? Thanks! --PostScript 15:44, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

QuestionsEdit

Hi Andy, there was a suggestion on Wikipedia_talk:Content_review/workshop, specifically here to modify the message left by the PR script from the current version to something like "A script has been used to generate a semi-automated review of the article for minor issues of grammar and house style. If you would find such a review helpful, please click here."

Also I was wondering if I should run the script on other PR pages (different Wikiprojects) or are these all transcluded on the regular WP:PR page? Thanks, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 02:16, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, I just ran the script as AZPR and noted the change - I think "house style" was wikilinked to WP:MOS in the original suggestion. Also I did the October requests first, then made the November PR/A page, then tried the November requests, but the auto link was still to the October PR/A page. What I am doing wrong? As for the auto transcluded PR requests from other projects, I will ask at Talk PR. Thanks again, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 03:12, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Peer review scriptEdit

I'm hoping you'll revisit this statement in the peer review script:

  • Consider adding more links to the article; per Wikipedia:Manual of Style (links) and Wikipedia:Build the web, create links to relevant articles.[?]

I'm encountering a lot of WP:OVERLINKing, perhaps because editors believe they need to add links ... just for the sake of adding links. I just finished delinking a lot of WP:OVERLINKing at Rotavirus, and the author got a peer review script telling him to add more links :-) Overlinking lately is as big a problem as underlinking, so perhaps you can refer to WP:OVERLINK.

Classification of adminsEdit

Recommendation regarding peer review scriptEdit

I would like to suggest that you remove this statement from the peer reviews: "There may be an applicable infobox for this article." Infoboxes are not mandatory and including this suggestion makes it seem like the article should have one. Editors should decide whether or not an infobox is justified. For a long time I thought infoboxes were required, although that isn't stated anywhere, simply because of scripts like this and templates that list whether articles have infoboxes or not. It seemed a natural conclusion to draw. I was surprised to discover that infoboxes were not required. Thanks. Awadewit | talk 11:07, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

User:AZPR/cEdit

  Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia!

I hope not to seem unfriendly or make you feel unwelcome, but I noticed your user subpage at User:AZPR/c, and I am concerned that it might not meet Wikipedia's user page policy. After you look over that policy, could we discuss that concern here? I'd appreciate hearing your views, such as your reasons for wanting this particular page and any alternatives you might accept.

There are several options available for resolving this matter:

  • If you can relieve my concerns through discussing it here, I can stop worrying about it.
  • If you decide to delete the page yourself, please add {{Db-userreq}} to the top of the page in question and an administrator will delete it.
  • If the two of us can't agree on what needs to be done, we can ask for help through Wikipedia's user pages for discussion, which may result in the page in question being deleted.

Thank you.--12 Noon  23:39, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:MikeNewell.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading Image:MikeNewell.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 14:29, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

AZPR tweakEdit

Hi Andy, Peer Review has changed somewhat in that the reviews are now bot generated. The WP:PR page no longer has the reviews - they are now transcluded from User:VeblenBot/C/Requests for peer review. Would it be possible to make the AZPR script run on the VeblenBot page? I have been adding the notice to PR requests one at a time for now, but the batch "add notices" would be nicer / easier. Hope you have a Happy New Year, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 18:37, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, just let me know if you are able to fix the script. If not, opening the reviews themselves one at a time still works fine. Ruhrfisch ><>°° 16:46, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
This was left on my talk page by User:Binarymoron. "Does the bot count "vague terms of size" that are within quotes too? If this is the case I have a good logic that can solve this problem, I am not familiar with programing languages other than C++ or VB so I dont know the coding in Perl or Python. Basically make the bot count all the double quotes before the word is encountered, if the number of counts(of double quotes) is even then the word is outside the qoutes and should be considered but if the number of counts is odd then the word is within the quotes and should be ignored." Thought it might be useful, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 02:11, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

EndashesEdit

Can you add an endash check on the script? When I see an article like Peyton Manning appear at FAC, I just feel bad for all the work the nominator has to do to fix all those dashes. And can you get the script to detect when cite templates have an empty or non-existent publisher field? Filling in all those publishers at Peyton Manning will take a huge effort.

Hacked around in the code; deduced that this is a memory error (taking enough of MOS_format() "fixed" it; didn't seem to matter which parts I removed). Not sure how to tell Firefox to allocate javascript more mem, or whether this is a problem unique to my system (Firefox 2.0.0.12, Mac 10.4.11, 1GB Ram) or a leak in the script. --jwandersTalk 07:14, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

My system is Mac OS X 10.5.2 with Firefox 2.0.0.12 and 2 GB RAM. I have a feeling that OS X is where the problem lies; Windows users probably don't have issues with this script. Gary King (talk) 15:00, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Simple suggestionEdit

The script should check whether an article has a category and suggest adding one if it doesn't. I guess that doesn't come too often, but I've just run it on an article w/out categories and discovered to much surprise the script ignored this problem. I am not sure if the script checks whether the last two elements of the article are categories and interwikis? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 18:13, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

It seems to me someone has blanked your page. I've reverted it. Do not reply on my account page as not only is it blocked, but the talk page is protected and I am operating from my IP address. Also, who's compromised your account anyway, what does it mean and how has it affected you, and what is the Z standing for in AndyZ? (not Zajaczkowski, is it?)

Automated peer review problemEdit

I ran the peer review on Ardingly College and one of the issues was When writing standard abbreviations, the abbreviations should not have a 's' to demark plurality (for example, change kms to km and lbs to lb). I cannot find any examples within the article. However there is a 196 acre (0.79 km²). Is it possible that the ² is fooling the peer review, or is there a rogue measurement that I missed? Thanks.

PR bot, RaphaelEdit

Thanks for the review of Raphael at PR, which was mostly useful. However the first point made, on galleries, is just wrong, and the bot advice should be removed or heavily reworded for your future reviews. Small galleries within articles are acceptable in FAs - the test case for this was Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Robert Peake the Elder. In addition, WP:Galleries a) was never adopted (a point linking to a section completely obscures), and b) referred to the now-extinct Gallery-only pages, not internal galleries, which are often essential in visual arts subjects. You might caution against over-large or under-captioned galleries though. Thanks! Johnbod (talk) 12:12, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Peer review ... more pictures?!Edit

Hi, the bot just ran an automated overview on Obi (sash). What surprised me was that it said "This article has no or few images" while the article is 35 KB long with no less than 17 images. Doesn't the script count [[File:imagename.end]] as images, or did it add the line for some section of the article, or is this only a borderline case? Pitke (talk) 19:40, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

The peer reviewer only looks for images using the "Image:" keyword: [[Image:Imagename.jpg|...]] and not the "File:" keyword. [[File:Imagename.jpg|...]]. This is a bug that needs to be fixed. — LinguistAtLarge • Talk  16:11, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Automated peer reviewer and listsEdit

Is the automated peer reviewer recommended for lists as well? If, let's say, I wanted to bring a list up to WP:FL status, will the script differentiate between an article and a list? I'm thinking certain suggestions the script may give may not apply to lists as they would to an article. -- OlEnglish (Talk) 21:10, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

GA Sweeps invitationEdit

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am sending you this message since you are a member of the GA WikiProject. I would like to invite you to consider helping with the GA sweeps process. Sweeps helps to ensure that the oldest GAs still meet the criteria, and improve the quality of GAs overall. Unfortunately, last month only two articles were reviewed. This is definitely a low point after our peak at the beginning of the process when 163 articles were reviewed in September 2007. After nearly two years, the running total has just passed the 50% mark. In order to expediate the reviewing, several changes have been made to the process. A new worklist has been created, detailing which articles are left to review. All exempt and previously reviewed articles have already been removed from the list. Instead of reviewing by topic, you can consider picking and choosing whichever articles interest you.

We are always looking for new members to assist with the remaining articles, so if you are interested or know of anybody that can assist, please visit the GA sweeps page. In addition, for every member that reviews 100 articles or has a significant impact on the process, s/he will get an award when they reach that threshold. If only 14 editors achieve this feat starting now, we would be done with Sweeps! Of course, having more people reviewing less articles would be better for all involved, so please consider asking others to help out. Feel free to stop by and only review a few articles, something's better than nothing! Take a look at the list, and see what articles interest you. Let's work to complete Sweeps so that efforts can be fully focused on the backlog at GAN. If you have any questions about the process, reviewing, or need help with a particular article, please contact me or OhanaUnited and we'll be happy to help. --Happy editing!

Peer review thingEdit

Just a note (I'm not sure if someone else has pointed this out) that in the points about Br/Am English, 'program[me]' is an imperfect example given that 'computer programs' are called that in Br Eng (unlike T.V. or theatre programmes), so it might be worth using a different example that doesn't have this caveat. - Jarry1250 (t, c) 12:23, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

History of Portugal (1777–1834) FAREdit

I have nominated History of Portugal (1777–1834) for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Remove" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. KensplanetTC 16:07, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Implementing PR bot at WP:GAN/WP:FAC/WP:FLCEdit

People have expressed interest in having the automated reviews for the FA/FL candidates and the GA noms. The idea is that since it doesn't hurt to have them, we might as well have them. Could you implement the automated PRs for them too? Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 22:23, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

This is not a bot, but a semi-bot at best. I have to run it by hand (it is an automated script) every night for WP:PR as User:AZPR (which AndyZ gave me access to before he became inactive). Ruhrfisch ><>°° 03:59, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Okay, then could you also run it on GAN/FAC/FLC? Would there be a way to fully automate this, if you can't do it yourself, perhaps the bots group could?Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 16:19, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
I should have made clear that the PR bot links the semi-automated peer reviews (SAPRs) once I paste them into the directory, this month at WP:PRA/JL09. I also use the number of SAPRs in each month's directory for the PR stat at WP:FAS. So if this is done, it would work best in a separate directory (so as not to confuse the bot or mess up the PR stats). If I were to do this, it would be much more work as I would presumably have not only put the SAPRs in the directory, but add some sort of link to them in the FAC / FLC / GAN. I did not see any disucssion of this at GAN. The discussions at FLC and FAC seemed lukewarm at best. I am limited in the amount of time I have and respectfully decline. I do note that anyone can add the script to their monobook and generate a SAPR for any article. Ruhrfisch ><>°° 18:27, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
K, I'll ask the bots people. Want me to request PR to be bot-handled as well? This would free some of your time. Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 18:53, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, that would be very nice of you. The script has a few bugs / quirks (see comments above - for one it does not recognize File and so thinks articles have no images). I would be glad to provide comment on the bot request. User:CBM does the Peer review bot and should know about this too (so the two bots can interact well together). I think FAC SAPRs could be on the FAC talk page. Same for FLC. Not sure about GAN. Ruhrfisch ><>°° 03:19, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Bot request to further automate the SAPR processEdit

Hi Andy, not sure if you still watch things here, but a bot request has been made to automate the generation of the semi-automated peer reviews, here. I thought you should know and will try emailing you too. Ruhrfisch ><>°° 12:41, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

NJ Portal UserboxEdit

Hi, I added the userbox {User Wikiproject New Jersey}* to my user page and only the "This user is part of the New Jersey WikiProject." part shows up. Wikipedia:WikiProject New Jersey (under participation) it shows "This user lives in the state of New Jersey." and "This user grew up in the state of New Jersey." I live in NJ and grew up in NJ so I would like those user boxes too. How can I get them?

Peer review script suggestionsEdit

I am using the script for various reviews. Things that it seems to ignore but I think could be fixed: 1) spotting and commenting on unreferenced paragraphs and sections 2) stub templates on long articles and no templates on short ones 3) on talk pages, missing or unassessed WikiProject tags --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 21:39, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

This page's header indicates the user has not been active recently; not sure if anyone is updating the code. I have also noticed this script may not consider the Chemistry MOS, e.g. Palladium and Silver. 23:06, November 7, 2009 (UTC) + 23:31, 7 November 2009 (UTC) + MornMore (talk) 01:32, 8 November 2009 (UTC)08:16, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
Nevermind, the Chemistry MOS does not appear to contradict the primary. Though perhaps requested, was puzzling to find Silver article suggestions in both a monthly peer review summary and the Chemistry peer review.

WikiProject Good articles (Participant Clean-Up)Edit

Hello, you are receiving this message because you are currently a participant of WikiProject Good articles. Since the creation of the WikiProject, over 200 user's have joined to help review good article nominations and contribute to other sections of the WikiProject. Over the years, several of these users have stopped reviewing articles and/or have become inactive with the project but are still listed as participates. In order to improve communications with other participants and get newsletters sent out faster (newsletters will begin to be sent out monthly starting in October) all participants that are no longer active with the WikiProject will be removed from the participants list.

If you are still interested in being a participant for this WikiProject, please sign your user name here and please help review some articles so we can reduce the size of the backlog. If you are no longer interested, you do not need to sign your name anywhere and your name will be removed from the participants list after the deadline. Remember that even if you are not interested at this time, you can always re-add your name to the list whenever you want. The deadline to sign your name on the page above will be November 1, 2012.

Notice of changeEdit

Hello. You are receiving this message because of a recent change to the administrator policy that alters what you were told at the time of your desysopping. The effect of the change is that if you are inactive for a continuous three year period, you will be unable to request return of the administrative user right. This includes inactive time prior to your desysopping if you were desysopped for inactivity and inactive time prior to the change in policy. Inactivity is defined as the absence of edits or logged actions. Until such time as you have been inactive for three years, you may request return of the tools at the bureaucrats' noticeboard. After you have been inactive for three years, you may seek return of the tools only through WP:RFA. Thank you. MBisanz talk 00:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

WikiProject Good Articles Recruitment CentreEdit

Hello! Now, some of you might be wondering why there is a Good article icon with a bunch of stars around (to the right). The answer? WikiProject Good articles will be launching a Recruitment Centre very soon! The centre will allow all users to be taught how to review Good article nominations by experts just like you! However, in order for the Recruitment Centre to open in the first place, we need some volunteers:
  • Recruiters: The main task of a recruiter is to teach users that have never reviewed a Good article nomination how to review one. To become a recruiter, all you have to do is meet this criteria. If we don't get at least 5-10 recruiters to start off with, the Recruitment Centre will not open. If interested, make sure you meet the criteria, read the process and add your name to the list of recruiters. (One of the great things about being a recruiter is that there is no set requirement of what must be taught and when. Instead, all the content found in the process section is a guideline of the main points that should be addressed during a recruitment session...you can also take an entire different approach if you wish!) If you think you will not have the time to recruit any users at this time but are still interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still add your name to the list of recruiters but just fill in the "Status" parameter with "Not Available".
  • Co-Director: The current Director for the centre is me (Dom497). Another user that would be willing to help with some of the tasks would be helpful. Tasks include making sure recruiters are doing what they should be (teaching!), making sure all recruitments are archived correctly, updating pages as needed, answering any questions, and distributing the feedback form. If interested, please contact me (Dom497).
  • Nominators, please read this: If you are not interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still help. In some cases a nominator may have an issue with an "inexperienced" editor (the recruitee) reviewing one of their nominations. To minimize the chances of this happening, if you are fine with a recruitee reviewing one of your nominations under the supervision of the recruiter, please add your name to the list at the bottom of this page. By adding your name to this list, chances are that your nomination will be reviewed more quickly as the recruitee will be asked to choose a nomination from the list of nominators that are OK with them reviewing the article.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing this program bring new reviewers to the Good article community and all the positive things it will bring along.

A message will be sent out to all recruiters regarding the date when the Recruitment Centre will open when it is determined. The message will also contain some further details to clarify things that may be a bit confusing.--Dom497 (talk)

Knights of Columbus FACEdit

Hello! Seven years ago you took part reviewing the Knights of Columbus article when it was up for Featured Article. It passed then, but was later delisted. I've addressed the new concerns and have put it back up for consideration again. If you would be kind enough to review the article again and then offer either your support or suggestions on its new nomination page, I would very much appreciate it. Thanks! --Briancua (talk) 13:47, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

GAN December 2013 Backlog DriveEdit

Hello! A GAN Backlog Drive will begin in less than 4 days!

In past Backlog Drives, the goal was to reduce the backlog of Good article nominations. In the upcoming drive, another goal will be added - raising as much money as we can for the Wikimedia Foundation. How will this work? Well, its pretty simple. Any user interested in donating can submit a pledge at the Backlog Drive page (linked above). The pledge should mention the amount of money the user is willing to donate per review. For example, if a user pledges 5 cents per review and 100 nominations are reviewed, the total donation amount is $5.00.

At the time this message was sent out, two users have submitted pledges for a total of 8 cents per review. All pledges, no matter how much money, are greatly appreciated. Also, in no way is this saying you must make a pledge.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or leave a message on the Backlog Drive talk page. And remember, there are less than 4 days before the drive starts!--EdwardsBot (talk) 03:21, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

GAN December 2013 Backlog DriveEdit

Hello! Just a friendly reminder that the GAN Backlog Drive has begun and will end on December 31, 2013!

If you know anyone outside of the WikiProject that may be interested, feel free to invite them to the drive!

If you have any questions or want to comment about something regarding the drive, post them here--EdwardsBot (talk) 00:13, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Notification of automated file description generationEdit

Your upload of File:5th NY Volunteer memorial.jpg or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!

March 2014 GAN Backlog DriveEdit

It's that time again! Starting on March 1, there will be another GAN Backlog Drive! There will be several changes compared to previous drives:

  • This drive will introduce a new component to it; a point system. In a nutshell, older nominations are worth more points than newer nominations. The top 3 participants who have the points will be awarded the Golden, Silver, or Bronze Wikipedia Puzzle Piece Trophy, respectively.
  • Unlike the December 2013 Backlog Drive, earning an additional barnstar if you reached your goal has been removed.
  • The allowance to have insufficient reviews has been lowered to 2 before being disqualified.
  • An exception to the rule that all reviews must be completed before the deadline has been created.

Also, something that I thought I would share with all of you is that we raised $20.88 (USD) for the WMF in the December 2013 drive. It may not sound like a lot but considering that that was raised just because we reviewed articles, I would say that's pretty good! With that success, pledges can be made for the upcoming drive if you wish.

More info regarding the drive and full descriptions regarding the changes to this drive can be found on the the drive page. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a message on the drive talk page.

I look forward to your participation and hope that because of it, some day the backlog will be gone!

WikiProject Good articles Future GAN Backlog DriveEdit

Hello everyone! Hope you've all been having a great summer!

TheQ Editor recently proposed the idea of having another Backlog Drive in either September/October or November/December of this year. For those of you who have participated in the past two drives you know I was the one who organized them, however, come September, this will be my most important year in school so I will not be able to coordinate this drive (if it happens). TheQ Editor has volunteered to be a coordinator for the drive. If any of you would like to co-coordinator, please notify TheQ Editor on his talk page.

If you would be interested in participating in a Backlog Drive sometime before the end of this year, please notify TheQ Editor. Also, make sure to specify what month(s) work best for you.

At the time this message was sent out, the backlog was at 520 nominations. Since May, the backlog has been steadily increasing and we are currently near an all time high. Even though the backlog will not disappear over one drive, this drive can lead to several others which will (hopefully) lead to the day where there is no longer a backlog.

As always, the more participants, the better, and everyone is encouraged to participate!

GA CupEdit

Hello everyone! We hope you have all been having a great summer!

As we all know, the recent GAN Backlog Drives have not had any big impact on the backlog. Because of that, me (Dom497), Figureskatingfan, and TheQ Editor have worked on an idea that could possibly finally put a dent into the massive backlog. Now, I will admit, the idea isn't entirely ours as we have took the general idea of the WikiCup and brought it over to WikiProject Good Articles. But anyways, here's what we have in mind:

For all of you that do not know what the WikiCup is, it is an annual competition between several editors to see who can get the most Good Articles, Featured Article's, Did You Know's, etc. Based of this, we propose to you the GA Cup. This competition will only focus on reviewing Good articles.

For more info on the proposal, click here. As a FYI, the proposal page is not what the final product will look like (if you do go ahead with this idea). It will look very similar to WikiCup's page(s).

The discussion for the proposal will take place here. Please let us know if you are interested, have any concerns, things to consider, etc.

WikiProject Good Articles - GA CupEdit

 

WikiProject Good articles is holding a new competition, the GA Cup, from October 1, 2014 - March 28, 2015. The Cup will be based on reviewing Good article nominations; for each review, points will be awarded with bonuses for older nominations, longer articles and comprehensive reviews. All participants will start off in one group and the highest scoring participants will go through to the second round. At the moment six rounds are planned, but this may change based on participant numbers.

Some of you may ask: what is the purpose for a competition of this type? Currently, there is a backlog of about 500 unreviewed Good article nominations, almost an all time high. It is our hope that we can decrease the backlog in a fun way, through friendly competition.

Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors! Sign-ups will be open until October 15, 2014 so sign-up now!

If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the four judges.

Cheers from NickGibson3900, Dom497, TheQ Editor and Figureskatingfan.

Discrepancy in data given at a Wiki article you editedEdit

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_House_of_Representatives_elections,_1842


Please note the discrepancy between the total and the majority numbers given for the seats in the House of Representatives:

-All 223 seats to the United States House of Representatives -122 seats needed for a majority

If the total was 223, then the majority was 112; if the majority was 122, then the total number of seats was 243; or both numbers are wrong.

I don't have the correct numbers; I'm just calling this to your attention.

Anthony ColveEdit

I am a historian from the Netherlands and I am researching Anthony Colve, and i am having trouble finding much of anything. I saw that you wrote that he was appointed to be governor of New Jersey after the end of his governorship of New Netherland in 1674, which I have not read elsewhere. What is your source for this? There seems to be a gap in the historical record regarding who was governor of West New Jersey between 1674 and 1680. Was this Colve? Any information you have on this mysterious character would be tremendously helpful for my research. Please contact me at artyom.anikin@gmail.com and let me know; I would be very grateful and happy to discuss colonial history further. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.57.54.68 (talk) 02:21, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Peer Reviewer is giving confusing results about last few sections.Edit

The gtl section of the peer reviewer semi-bot is confusing me. When presented with Willimantic, Connecticut, it says that the last few sections are misordered. But they're 'See also', 'Notes', 'External links', which looks like what's being asked for! Is the bot wrong? Am I missing something? grendel|khan 04:27, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Aha! There's a (not-top-level) heading 'City history' in the article, which matched the string == Cit. Whew; it was a false positive. Maybe the script should use regex searches--it's much easier to look for ^==\s?Cit(e|ation) than to expand something like that out. grendel|khan 18:07, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
