QuestionEdit

Your recent revert of my edits seem to contradict the banner on the top of Category:Mass shootings in the United States which states "all mass shootings in the United States should be included in this category". Your edit defeats the purpose of this banner. I was adding this to a few pages that didn't include said category. However, a few pages do include the parent category and a subcategory for example: Aurora, Illinois shooting contains the categories Category:Mass shootings in Illinois as well as Category:Mass shootings in the United States. Shouldn't all pages be consistently categorized? Tinton5 (talk) 00:22, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

Tinton5, Hmm, I'm not sure. I don't see the point in having entries in the parent as well as subcategories, but I guess I won't revert if you feel the parent category needs to be added back? ---Another Believer (Talk) 04:35, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

Hello I was wondering if you had any tips for a new editor thanks EHTROITDE (talk) 09:01, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

EHTROITDE, Hey, if you're interested in Oregon-related articles, I'd recommend adding Wikipedia:WikiProject Oregon to your watchlist. Lots of great editors there who can answer questions you might have. Welcome to Wikipedia, and happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 19:47, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

YvieEdit

Before that Oddly didn’t embrace all the opportunities being a drag artist offered as he was just a “skinny, black, gay guy,” Oddly said.[3] Gleeanon409 (talk) 17:29, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

Gleeanon409, I'm not sure why you're posting this on my talk page. ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:29, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
You asked if there was a source for Yvie Oddly’s being gay. When I added the category the system didn’t allow me to add a comment so I posted here. Gleeanon409 (talk) 21:47, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
Gleeanon409, Thanks for clarifying. I'll make sure the category has been added back. ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:24, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

Question on RevertEdit

  Resolved

You reverted an edit I made to the ZoomCare article and stated that the revert set it back to the sourced version, but the previous edit has no source. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=ZoomCare&oldid=prev&diff=899198987&diffmode=source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tas50 (talkcontribs) 19:01, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Women's March on PortlandEdit

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Women's March on Portland you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria.   This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Ashorocetus -- Ashorocetus (talk) 00:21, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Reversing RoeEdit

Hi, there. I've created the article for the film Reversing Roe, but as you "created" it first as a redirect, it doesn't appear on my list of pages created. Is there anything I can do to make it appear on my list? Regards.--SirEdimon (talk) 00:15, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

SirEdimon, If I'm being honest, I'm not sure. For future reference, when I'm looking to override a redirect, I usually write my article in the draft space (such as Draft:Reversing Roe) and then submit a request to have the page moved into the main space at Wikipedia:Requested moves. I don't know if Wikipedia:Requests for history merge is a place for help. Of course, you're welcome to simply claim credit, but I understand if you want the article history to reflect your work. I often just expand articles from redirects, just depends on the situation. There may be a solution but I don't know off hand. Perhaps a talk page stalker can point you in the right direction. ---Another Believer (Talk) 00:23, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply. I have created the draft on my draft space before even realizing the redirect. I'll try the Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thanks for your help.--SirEdimon (talk) 20:05, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Women's March on PortlandEdit

  Resolved

The article Women's March on Portland you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold  . The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:Women's March on Portland for issues which need to be addressed. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Ashorocetus -- Ashorocetus (talk) 21:01, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

  CheckUser changes

  Ivanvector

  Guideline and policy news

  • An RfC seeks to clarify whether WP:OUTING should include information on just the English Wikipedia or any Wikimedia project.
  • An RfC on WT:RfA concluded that Requests for adminship and bureaucratship are discussions seeking to build consensus.
  • An RfC proposal to make the templates for discussion (TfD) process more like the requested moves (RM) process, i.e. "as a clearinghouse of template discussions", was closed as successful.

  Technical news

  • The CSD feature of Twinkle now allows admins to notify page creators of deletion if the page had not been tagged. The default behavior matches that of tagging notifications, and replaces the ability to open the user talk page upon deletion. You can customize which criteria receive notifications in your Twinkle preferences: look for Notify page creator when deleting under these criteria.
  • Twinkle's d-batch (batch delete) feature now supports deleting subpages (and related redirects and talk pages) of each page. The pages will be listed first but use with caution! The und-batch (batch undelete) option can now also restore talk pages.

Gleeanon409, You've made some improvements in June as well, and I'll probably make a few now as well. I invite you to add this to the Wiki Loves Pride list! ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:08, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

You got there first! No problem.
Would you do me a favor and look at Desmond’s entry at [1]? As far as I can tell he is both 1. The most famous drag kid in the world and 2. The youngest professional drag queen in the world but I’m getting like no sources feedback that’s really definitive or even about the content I’d like to add. Am I at the right place? Should I start over that a fourth source was found? I don’t know what to do. Gleeanon409 (talk) 20:22, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 14Edit

Extended content
Newsletter • June 2019

Updates: I've been focusing largely on the development side of things, so we are a lot closer now to being ready to actually start discussing deploying it and testing it out here.

There's just a few things left that need to be resolved:

  • A bunch of language support issues in particular, plus some other release blockers, such as the fact that currently there's no good way to find any hubs people do create.
  • We also probably need some proper documentation and examples up to even reference if we want a meaningful discussion. We have the extension documentation and some test projects, but we probably need a bit more. Also I need to be able to even find the test projects! How can I possibly write reports about this stuff if I can't find any of it?!

Some other stuff that's happened in the meantime:

  • Midpoint report is out for this round of the project, if you want to read in too much detail about all the problems I've been running into.
  • WikiProject Molecular Biology have successfully set up using the old module system that CollaborationKit is intended to replace (eventually), and it even seems to work, so go them. Based on the issues they ran into, it looks like the members signup thing on that system has some of the same problems as we've been unable to resolve in CK, though, which is... interesting. (Need to change the content model to the right thing for the formwizard config to take. Ugh, content models.)

Until next time,

There is no mention of Super Moon at Dirty HeadsEdit

Hi. I see you created redirects for Dirty Heads' upcoming album Super Moon, probably presuming there was content at the band's article about it. There isn't. Please make sure there is a mention at the article you're pointing a redirect to before creating said redirect, or add it there after. Your redirects have been nominated for deletion enough times for you to probably know this, and I believe I've asked you to do this before. Thanks. Ss112 06:35, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

WikiCup 2019 July newsletterEdit

Extended content

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!

Honey DavenportEdit

 
Honey Davenport

I saw that the Honey Davenport article finally underwent its CE. I have to say, I am pretty disappointed: the copy edit introduced a number of unambiguous grammatical errors and included many other changes that, in my opinion, were disimprovements to the flow and structure of the prose. At least one other edit Wikilinked a magazine in the refs that was already linked in its first appearance in the published version of the article (which was not its first appearance in the markup).

Some of the changes struck me as true improvements or were pretty neutral, so I left those alone. I had to restore much of the article from its pre-CE version, though. Do you think this will present a problem? Normally in a case like this, I'd open a discussion with the editor who did the CE and comment on each change in detail. However, I'm traveling and pressed for time IRL, so initiating what could be a long talk isn't especially feasible for me at the moment. If someone attempts to revert my most recent changes, I will probably have to do it anyway, but this is a headache I hope very much to avoid. What did you think of this CE? I noticed you also restored at least one sentence from the pre-CE version. Armadillopteryxtalk 14:37, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Armadillopteryx, Nope, don't worry. Sometimes I revert edits made via GOCE review as well. For me, getting GOCE review is generally helpful, and most of the time quite constructive. But, sometimes I disagree and undo some changes, and this has never been a problem with reviewing editors or the Good article review. By all means, please edit the article as you see fit. ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:12, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
Got it—thanks! Shall I go ahead and nominate it for GA? Armadillopteryxtalk 20:26, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Rainbow flag (LGBT movement)Edit

I made some improvements and added content to the article, but I’m not sure if it qualifies as a WikiPride candidate. Could you please take a look? Gleeanon409 (talk) 16:31, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Gleeanon409, Sure, the campaign generally runs during the month of June, but some people continue updating the Results page outside June. I've gone ahead and added the banner and updated the Results page on your behalf. Happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:35, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for checking! BTW, I read that the WikiPride went from June to October. I’m hoping that’s the case as I’ve got a backlog now of articles I want to write that are within the LGBTQ umbrella. I figured I had until 1st November, but are we already past the deadline? Gleeanon409 (talk) 17:15, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
Gleeanon409, Historically, the campaign has run during June, but Wiki Loves Pride is really about encouraging editors to create and improve LGBT-related content whenever. If you want to continue adding Template:Wiki Loves Pride 2019 to talk pages and updating Wikipedia:Wiki Loves Pride/2019/Results with your work, by all means, please do! ---Another Believer (Talk) 17:20, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

A belated apologyEdit

It's been a while, but I'd like to apologize for flaking on you and not reviewing the notability of the World Famous Kenton Club draft as I said I would. I found the notability of the draft rather tricky tricky to evaluate, and I kept putting it off so I could give you a thorough review. The perfect ended up being the enemy of the good, however, and I never got around to writing down my thoughts. I'm sorry about this. I just want to follow up with you so you know: don't hesitate to ping me if you need a second opinion on something again! Hopefully I'll be able to provide some feedback in a more timely manner next time ;) – Lord Bolingbroke (talk) 22:54, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Lord Bolingbroke, Hey, no problem at all! I was mostly just pinging as a courtesy, since I had said I would. The editor who I was conflicting with has been banned from interacting with me, and I've already nominated two articles they attempted to delete for Good article status. Sorry you got pulled into that mess. I've been enjoying some of your other contributions related to Portland and Oregon. Keep up the great work! ---Another Believer (Talk) 23:32, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you! After having edited here for some time, it feels good to finally get some new articles into mainspace. I saw the Graywalls thread at ANI. I thought about chiming in, but I dislike drama and just felt too heated at the time to contribute constructively. – Lord Bolingbroke (talk) 04:41, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Stubs on Portland parksEdit

Hello again! Are you sure articles like Northgate Park and University Park (Portland, Oregon) pass GNG? Why have you chosen to create articles on these parks rather than any of the other non-bluelinked parks at List of parks in Portland, Oregon? – Lord Bolingbroke (talk) 17:58, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

Lord Bolingbroke, I create stubs for park articles often, mostly as I visit them in chunks and connect entries to Commons, Wikidata, etc. I'd love to see stubs for more of the parks mentioned in the list and will continue to work on them as possible. ---Another Believer (Talk) 18:03, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
Frankly, I don't think creating these articles is a good idea. Taking Northgate Park as an example, I can find tangential mentions like this and this but no significant coverage. If the above articles were taken to AfD, you'd need to have some sort of IAR rationale for keeping them. – Lord Bolingbroke (talk) 18:17, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

──── For the record, I think an IAR rationale can be perfectly legitimate. I'm skeptical that some Portland neighborhoods like Crestwood, Portland, Oregon or Sunderland, Portland, Oregon pass GNG, for instance, but there are still encyclopedic reasons to have these articles. I should also clarify that I don't think there's anything particularly bad about these parks articles (they're accurate and verifiable); I just think it's important for policy to be applied consistently, regardless of whether an article creator is a newbie or autopatrolled. – Lord Bolingbroke (talk) 20:05, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Lord Bolingbroke, I understand, and some parks will have received more coverage than others (not to mention, there may be better coverage of Portland's parks compared to other metro areas). If you poke around Category:Parks in Portland, Oregon, you'll see there are some nice entries for even some of the city's minor parks. Many of them were established as protected areas decades ago and there may be some helpful PP&R sources and I'd be searching the Oregonian archives as well. Also worth keeping in mind, some parks may have public art, host events, have community centers, etc, so there may be more than expected or seen at a glance. Personally, I like getting the ball rolling, and I think there are bigger concerns than purging articles about parks. But you can always note your concerns their respective talk pages. BTW, thanks for fixing the caption on the Mock's Bottom article. ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:19, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Kylie and Garibay (EP)Edit

Extended content

Hey there! I'm in the process of copy editing Kylie and Garibay (EP) and already finished copy editing the first half of the article. I've run into some IRL issues, so I will finish the other half later (hopefully by end of day today).

I have a question regarding the second sentence of the article:

It was released on 11 September 2015 by Parlophone and Warner Bros. Records, and serves as a sequel to their first collaboration, Sleepwalker (2014).

If my intuition is correct, "their" is supposed to refer to Kylie and Garibay. However, grammatically, "their" here refers to Parlaphone and Warner Bros. Records. Furthermore, I noticed that the tenses in this sentence are inconsistent (i.e. "was" and "serves") and that the previous sentence uses present tense. Given these combined reasons, I moved the second half of the sentence to be a part of the first one. (Just explaining my rationale here. It was an edit made in good faith.)

In your edit you noted that you want to "say date of release before the date of their previous release". I'm perfectly okay with this. However, as a copy editor, I want to make sure it flows well grammatically and stylistically. Currently, "their" is ambiguous, the tenses are inconsistent, and the second clause should either be a phrase without the comma or an independent clause. What do you think of the following variations to this sentence?

It was released on 11 September 2015 by Parlophone and Warner Bros. Records, and it served as a sequel to Kylie and Garibay's first collaboration, Sleepwalker (2014).

It was released on 11 September 2015 by Parlophone and Warner Bros. Records and served as a sequel to Kylie and Garibay's first collaboration, Sleepwalker (2014).

Help improving the Fund for the Public Interest pageEdit

Hello Another Believer. My name is Elizabeth and I do work for several nonprofits, including Environment America and the Fund for the Public Interest. I want to make some improvements to the Fund for the Public Interest page, but since I am in a conflict of interest when doing so, I wonder if you have time to help me in the next few weeks? If so, how would you like to me to proceed? I can share my proposed edits with you. CleanWater17 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 20:18, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

CleanWater17, Possibly, but your best bet is to post suggested updates/improvements to the article's talk page. There's also the request edit template if you want to throw your requests into a queue for editors familiar with this process to review. ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:23, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your quick response. I've now read about the request edit template and have a question. The guidelines say to post proposed changes on the talk page and obtain consensus before using the edit request template. I assume this means reach consensus with other people who have edited the page. The page I'd like to edit, however, doesn't have many active editors. How long should I wait for a discussion and consensus on the page before using the edit request template? CleanWater17 (talk) 20:53, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
CleanWater17, Hmm, I see people use this template often when requesting straightforward requests, such as fixing inaccuracies, adding updates, etc, without seeking consensus first. However, if you're planning to propose major overhauls, you may want to reach out to specific editors who are willing to review proposed language and sourcing in detail. I've noticed those who reply to the request edit template often prefer smaller changes. Note: Using the request edit template is not required, but I wanted to make this option known. Your best bet is to find interested editors or ask for help at select WikiProjects. Starting with an outline of your proposed changes on the article's talk page is the best start, so you can at least see if any page watchers reply in any way before going out of the way for assistance. ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:57, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

Your draft article, Draft:Minister for LonelinessEdit

  Resolved

Hello, Another Believer. It has been over six months since you last edited the Articles for Creation submission or Draft page you started, "Minister for Loneliness".

In accordance with our policy that Wikipedia is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}}, {{db-draft}}, or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. UnitedStatesian (talk) 04:23, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

Naming statue articlesEdit

Ther is a lot of conversation going on about the naming of statues. I have avoided bringing this into the conversation, but perhaps we could chat about it? I think at least they should all have the sculpture's name instead of the "(sculpture)" that a few of them have. But should they all be "Statue of........." ? Carptrash (talk) 21:11, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Carptrash, Funny you mention, User:Ham II is working on this in their draft space: User:Ham II/Sandpit G. Amidst all the naming discussions, we still need to decide about what to do when there are multiples of the same statue. Many of the statues in the National Statuary Hall Collection have duplicates installed at state capitol buildings, or elsewhere. Not all, but some. TBD: Do we go with "Statue of XXX", "Statues of XXX", or even have separate articles if there's enough content about the works in their respective locations? So much to figure out, but I'm looking forward to setting some standards so we can be more consistent moving forward. Glad you see the NSHC on your mind as well. ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:00, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Guy Walks Into a Bar...Edit

There is an ellipsis in the title. I don't know what you linked your redirect Guy Walks into a Bar (album) on Mini Mansions for, whether you were intending to start the article or have somebody do it for you by linking a redirect you created, but I've started the article at the correct place (Guy Walks Into a Bar..., with ellipsis intact) to dissuade others from making it elsewhere. If you intend to contribute to the topic, please do so there. Thank you. Ss112 04:25, 3 August 2019 (UTC)

Ss112, I was just creating redirects based on other possible search terms. I'm not sure an ellipsis serves as a disambiguation, and I thought "into" should be lower case, but I don't feel strongly about either. Happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:18, 3 August 2019 (UTC)

  • Following a research project on masking IP addresses, the Foundation is starting a new project to improve the privacy of IP editors. The result of this project may significantly change administrative and counter-vandalism workflows. The project is in the very early stages of discussions and there is no concrete plan yet. Admins and the broader community are encouraged to leave feedback on the talk page.
  • The new page reviewer right is bundled with the admin tool set. Many admins regularly help out at Special:NewPagesFeed, but they may not be aware of improvements, changes, and new tools for the Curation system. Stay up to date by subscribing here to the NPP newsletter that appears every two months, and/or putting the reviewers' talk page on your watchlist.

    Since the introduction of temporary user rights, it is becoming more usual to accord the New Page Reviewer right on a probationary period of 3 to 6 months in the first instance. This avoids rights removal for inactivity at a later stage and enables a review of their work before according the right on a permanent basis.
