I noticed that you have reworked Shada from a redirect to a disambiguation page. I have no problem with that change, but I do have a problem with the 134 links to disambiguation pages you have created with that change. Can you please fix that issue? The Banner talk 10:53, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

I'm working on it. Please note that when you move a page, you get a notice like this; observe in particular the last bullet. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 21:00, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

"GIMP 2.10" listed at Redirects for discussionEdit

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect GIMP 2.10. Since you had some involvement with the GIMP 2.10 redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you wish to do so. –MJLTalk 04:04, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

New Page Review newsletter September-October 2019Edit

Hello Animalparty,


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.


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.

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.

Paintings and photosEdit

Thanks - I wasn't sure about being able to upload as free a photo of a painting if I didn't take the photo. I wasn't sure who owns which copyright - the whole thing is a confusion for me. Odds are there are many pictures which could be made free that I have uploaded as non-free for this reason. So I'm delighted to see someone adjust the image rights. ☕ Antiqueight chatter 14:51, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

@Antiqueight: You're welcome! Paintings are admittedly a bit harder to deal with than photographs or printed works in terms of copyright, as it's harder to determine the time of first publication (which may be decades after creation). I went ahead and moved the image to Commons (here): note that there is uncertainty as to whether the subject is Elizabeth Yorke (1763–1858) or Mrs Agneta Yorke (1740-1820). --Animalparty! (talk) 15:18, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
Yeah - I saw the uncertainty but went with the majority of sites- more sites identified the sitter as Elizabeth. I wasn't sure what to do with that. Initially I found one of each but then I found a bunch more (and I don't know which was citing which)....BUT one of the sites talked about how the painting had been over painted black possibly after the death of her son and then later removed by the owner and I thought it seemed like they were confident which person it was. But yeah - photos cause me more confusion generally due to the date of publication and I default to the thought that at least I know when the subject died.... ☕ Antiqueight chatter 15:26, 29 September 2019 (UTC)



I am Kylejinx, the person who created the XCORPIIIO article.

Concerning your concerns about "insufficient evidence of notability," there are not presently many articles on the entity as of yet. There are a few concerning his acting in one of the films he has done. However, an IMDb, along with his gaining 30,000 streams in only a month, being recognized by Pandora as a promising artist, and his being associated with Alicia Keys, Kerry Brothers, Ann Mincieli, Stuart White, and Kumasi (all grammy award recognized individuals) is not enough evidence of notability? The former 3 points all being totally independent of him in that they are based on facts and numbers only. He is also recognized by google (as, when you look him up, you find the information box to the right of the page). If there is anything that I need to provide a screenshot of, I can do it; I just don't understand how there isn't enough evidence to prove his notability.

Concerning the conflict of interest concern, I do not see how the article I wrote is biased in a negative or positive way; I feel as though I wrote the entire thing based only off of facts.

"Has been placed in rotation nationally by a major radio or music television network."

XCORPIIIO's music has been placed in rotation on major radio stations within Pandora, due to its success upon release, including Beyonce Radio, Rihanna Radio, Lady Gaga Radio, Ariana Grande Radio, and Bruno Mars Radio.

I look forward to hearing back and, hopefully, being able to resolve this matter. I worked very hard on that page for 8 hours, and did everything I could to prove notability. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kylejinx (talkcontribs) 04:52, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

@Kylejinx: regarding the article Xcorpiiio: I've left several messages on your Talk Page. Please read the introductory links therein. Are you by any way affiliated with Mr. Hopkins, in either a personal or professional manner? You claim to be the photographer of all the photographs of Hopkins you've uploaded to Commons. If you are being paid to edit this article, you must disclose this per WP:PAID policy. Everything in an article must be sourceable to previously existing works, per verifiability policy. We do not publish new ideas or information here based on personal knowledge of a subject, per the policy of no original research. The article you wrote has large blocks of personal information with no references, suggesting you have personal knowledge of the subject, which may bias your perception of what is neutral (even if you're not acting as an agent). The references you have added are almost all affiliated sites (the artist's own website, or streaming sites hosting his work, or agency sites which are solely in the business of promoting the subject), which do not count towards establishing notability (meaning that it is not evident that the world at large has significantly taken an interest in the subject). Wikipedia is NOT a means of promoting up-and-coming artists: people who have Wikipedia pages have already demonstrated notability by significant coverage in multiple sources that are independent of the subject and have a reputation for accuracy and editorial oversight (e.g. newspapers, magazines, and reputable websites). It is very likely that your article, no matter how long you've worked on it, will be deleted: as a courtesy I moved it to draft space, where it could be developed (and hopefully better references added), but you insisted on moving it back to main space, where harsher editors than me will ultimately determine its fate. --Animalparty! (talk) 05:19, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

@Animalparty Firstly, I was unaware that you had moved it into Draft Space. I am new to wikipedia, and so assumed that I accidentally did that. I didn't even receive notification of your three messages until hours after. It has been moved back into draft space.

At least half of the sites that I have provided are in no way affiliated with the entity known as XCORPIIIO (Pandora, Spinnup, IMDb). Spinnup tracked the number of streams; no way could that be tampered with or done in his favor. Pandora recognized him as a promising artist according to their system's algorithm; there is no way that could've been done other than by them. Finally, IMDb is another site that merely lists the achievements of an entity. That page is not an IMDb Pro page, which insists that he was not included in the process of making it. Additionally, as I have proved above, his music has been played on major radio stations (via Pandora), which is a merit of notability by Wikipedia's standards. According to the the rules of the music notability article, if at least ONE of the rules is satisfied, then that is enough for the person to be considered notable enough to have a wikipedia article written about them.

I am indeed a paid contributor. How can I disclose this?

Additionally, should I then just reduce the article to things that I can link to "previously existing works"? Would that allow for it to continue existing?

Thank you for your contribution to this discussion; I am hoping we will be able to figure a way for the article to remain on the site. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kylejinx (talkcontribs) 20:25, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
