Joan Benson

Hi AB. I could use your help with the Joan Benson article that I started yesterday. I can keep plugging away on my own and do OK, but I think you know a great deal more about music and music-related articles on Wikipedia than I. What, for example, is a reliable source for the data about CDs that someone has performed for? If you're busy with other things, no problem. Finetooth (talk) 06:48, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

@Finetooth: Sure! AllMusic is considered a reliable source, though it certainly does not contain all music, so Benson may appear on other recordings not listed in the database. I did, however, add the two recordings listed for Benson at AllMusic to her Wikipedia article. Of course, the regular reliable sources like newspapers and journals suffice. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:46, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks a bunch. I responded on the Benson talk page. Finetooth (talk) 20:22, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 1

Hi! Thank you for subscribing to the WikiProject X Newsletter. For our first issue...

Has WikiProject X changed the world yet? No.

We opened up shop last month and announced our existence to the world. Our first phase is the "research" phase, consisting mostly of reading and listening. We set up our landing page and started collecting stories. So far, 28 stories have been shared about WikiProjects, describing a variety of experiences across numerous WikiProjects. A recurring story involves a WikiProject that starts off strong but has trouble continuing to stay active. Most people describe using WikiProjects as a way to get feedback from other editors. Some quotes:

  • "Working on requested articles, utilising the reliable sources section, and having an active WikiProject to ask questions in really helped me learn how to edit Wikipedia and looking back I don't know how long I would have stayed editing without that project." – Sam Walton on WikiProject Video Games
  • "I believe that the main problem of the Wikiprojects is that they are complicated to use. There should be a a much simpler way to check what do do, what needs to be improved etc." – Tetra quark
  • "In the late 2000s, WikiProject Film tried to emulate WP:MILHIST in having coordinators and elections. Unfortunately, this was not sustainable and ultimately fell apart." – Erik

Of course, these are just anecdotes. While they demonstrate what is possible, they do not necessarily explain what is typical. We will be using this information in conjunction with a quantitative analysis of WikiProjects, as documented on Meta. Particularly, we are interested in the measurement of WikiProject activity as it relates to overall editing in that WikiProject's subject area.

We also have 50 people and projects signed up for pilot testing, which is an excellent start! (An important caveat: one person volunteering a WikiProject does not mean the WikiProject as a whole is interested; just that there is at least one person, which is a start.)

While carrying out our research, we are documenting the problems with WikiProjects and our ideas for making WikiProjects better. Some ideas include better integration of existing tools into WikiProjects, recommendations of WikiProjects for people to join, and improved coordination with Articles for Creation. These are just ideas that may or may not make it to the design phase; we will see. We are also working with WikiProject Council to improve the directory of WikiProjects, with the goal of a reliable, self-updating WikiProject directory. Stay tuned! If you have any ideas, you are welcome to leave a note on our talk page.

That's all for now. Thank you for subscribing!

Your GA nomination of Oregon Theatre

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Oregon Theatre 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 Cwmhiraeth -- Cwmhiraeth (talk) 19:21, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Oregon Theatre

The article Oregon Theatre you nominated as a good article has passed  ; see Talk:Oregon Theatre for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already been on the main page as an "In the news" or "Did you know" item, you can nominate it to appear in Did you know. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Cwmhiraeth -- Cwmhiraeth (talk) 10:01, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Congrats on the promotion. You've done an impressive number of GA articles, many about Portland. This one reminds me of Mary's Club. Finetooth (talk) 02:30, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 04:21, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
I chose to review this article because of your request for a reviewer at the WikiCup. However, you do not seem to have claimed the points for the GA in the Cup. The points should be enough to get you into the next round. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 06:00, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
@Cwmhiraeth: Thank you, again, for taking time to review the article. I had every intention of claiming points until I looked at the article's history again and feared I would be claiming points for work mostly conducted in December 2014. Yes, I did work on the article in January, but I didn't want to "cheat" the system. If you think enough work was put into the article this year, I will claim points and hope it is enough to move to the next round. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:24, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
My view is that you have done plenty in 2015 for the points to be claimable. If the judges disagree with me they could disallow the submission, but I'm sure they won't. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 18:14, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
Glad to hear! It won't be the end of the world if the points claimed are disputed... :) Thanks again! ---Another Believer (Talk) 18:15, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Notice of cut-paste move

  Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Ghosttown (Madonna song) a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Ghosttown (song). This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you. Steel1943 (talk) 02:36, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I was unable to move the page and I thought it was ok to copy+paste as long as you included the diff URL in the edit summary. Won't happen again. ---Another Believer (Talk) 06:33, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
No worries. Just wanted to make you aware of what problems those types of moves cause. As long as the {{Histmerge}} tag remains at the top of the page, the attribution issue should be fixed shortly. Steel1943 (talk) 07:19, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
No problem. I've not made any more edits to the page in case that helps make the merge process easier. ---Another Believer (Talk) 07:21, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 March newsletter

 
One of several of Godot13's quality submissions during round 1

That's it, the first round is done, sign-ups are closed and we're into round 2. 64 competitors made it into this round, and are now broken into eight groups of eight. The top two of each group will go through to round 3, and then the top scoring 16 "wildcards" across all groups. Round 1 saw some interesting work on some very important articles, with the round leader   Freikorp (submissions) owing most of his 622 points scored to a Featured Article on the 2001 film Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within which qualified for a times-two multiplier. This is a higher score than in previous years, as   Godot13 (submissions) had 500 points in 2014 at the end of round 1, and our very own judge,   Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) led round 1 with 601 points in 2013.

In addition to Freikorp's work, some other important articles and pictures were improved during round one, here's a snapshot of a few of them:

White House article's two photos separated

I am not impressed with your edit. In a normal-sized window, the second photo now drops below the heading of the next section. Stability is a FAC article is important. You fiddled with it to achieve an eighth-of-an-inch difference in photo size? I'm also not sure why you felt you had to mention your comment on the FAC page; there is an article talk page. If you could revert your change and even your comment that would be great. Prhartcom (talk) 03:03, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

@Prhartcom: Sure, no problem. I don't feel strongly either way. And don't worry, my edit and comment will not be interpreted as instability or problematic of reaching FA status. I am hoping the article is promoted and was just offering a suggestion. ---Another Believer (Talk) 03:05, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Sculpture images

I compiled a list with the best image I could find on Flickr for some outdoor sculptures in Portland.

Perhaps you'll find them useful! Conifer (talk) 08:33, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

@Conifer: Wow, thank you. I don't think I've ever uploaded an image of a copyrighted work taken by someone else, but I'll see if I can figure it out. Also, I think Wikipedia articles about copyrighted works of art can only feature one image for illustrative/identification purposes, so additional images cannot be added to some of the articles listed above, but certainly this is helpful for the unillustrated Wikipedia articles. Thank you for taking time to compile these! Very helpful. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:52, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
You just have to list two different copyright holders when you upload the image: the photographer, who released it under a CC license, and the creator of the sculpture, who still holds copyright. Add a fair use rationale, and you're good to go. When I complied the list, none of these articles had images, but you've added an image to some since then. Anyway, some of the images could definitely be better, but others are probably ready to be uploaded. Conifer (talk) 18:35, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Mark di Suvero

On the Mark di Suvero page, noticed that you had added a few of his works back to the page. Curious if this is a necessary measure as all of that information can be found via the template on his page, as well as the pages of his notable works:


Personally I'm indifferent either way, but seems a bit of doubling up information for me. Cheers! GauchoDude (talk) 14:09, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

@GauchoDude: I don't feel too strongly either, but it seems standard to include a list of works. I would compare this to having a list of albums recorded by an artist even if the albums appear in a navbox about the artist. ---Another Believer (Talk) 14:22, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
@Another Believer: Makes sense, which is why I didn't revert it or edit it or anything. That said, when I started off editing the page, the list was much longer and included many seemingly non-notable works which seemed more suited for a "List of Mark di Suvero works" or something along those lines. I think mentioning just the notable ones suits the article well. Cheers! GauchoDude (talk) 14:32, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
@GauchoDude: Yes, perhaps a shorter list of notable works is best, and I agree, a List of works by Mark di Suvero" might be great if a more complete list is to be created. (Could make a great FL one day!) ---Another Believer (Talk) 14:33, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Photo of The Dream

Is The Dream (sculpture) going to pass GA criterion 6 (images)? It seems like an article about a sculpture needs a photo of the sculpture. Can you get over there to take a photo and upload it? It's supposed to be sunny and warm again tomorrow after a weekend of normal spring weather.... – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:28, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

If you can't get a photo, it looks like there are some at archive.org, and the press release in your sources states that "Photos on the website are available for publication use."
Possibly useful stuff here as well. Archive.org is a nice place to poke around. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:34, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
@Jonesey95: Great question. I don't think a missing image will prevent GA status, but I definitely think an image would greatly benefit the article and Wikipedia in general. Thanks for offering this link. I don't know if this "permission" means the images can be uploaded to Wikipedia or not, but hopefully I can get over to the Convention Center and take a photograph soon.

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 2

For this month's issue...

Making sense of a lot of data.

Work on our prototype will begin imminently. In the meantime, we have to understand what exactly we're working with. To this end, we generated a list of 71 WikiProjects, based on those brought up on our Stories page and those who had signed up for pilot testing. For those projects where people told stories, we coded statements within those stories to figure out what trends there were in these stories. This approach allowed us to figure out what Wikipedians thought of WikiProjects in a very organic way, with very little by way of a structure. (Compare this to a structured interview, where specific questions are asked and answered.) This analysis was done on 29 stories. Codes were generally classified as "benefits" (positive contributions made by a WikiProject to the editing experience) and "obstacles" (issues posed by WikiProjects, broadly speaking). Codes were generated as I went along, ensuring that codes were as close to the original data as possible. Duplicate appearances of a code for a given WikiProject were removed.

We found 52 "benefit" statements encoded and 34 "obstacle" statements. The most common benefit statement referring to the project's active discussion and participation, followed by statements referring to a project's capacity to guide editor activity, while the most common obstacles made reference to low participation and significant burdens on the part of the project maintainers and leaders. This gives us a sense of WikiProjects' big strength: they bring people together, and can be frustrating to editors when they fail to do so. Meanwhile, it is indeed very difficult to bring editors together on a common interest; in the absence of a highly motivated core of organizers, the technical infrastructure simply isn't there.

We wanted to pair this qualitative study with quantitative analysis of a WikiProject and its "universe" of pages, discussions, templates, and categories. To this end I wrote a script called ProjAnalysis which will, for a given WikiProject page (e.g. Wikipedia:WikiProject Star Trek) and WikiProject talk-page tag (e.g. Template:WikiProject Star Trek), will give you a list of usernames of people who edited within the WikiProject's space (the project page itself, its talk page, and subpages), and within the WikiProject's scope (the pages tagged by that WikiProject, excluding the WikiProject space pages). The output is an exhaustive list of usernames. We ran the script to analyze our test batch of WikiProjects for edits between March 1, 2014 and February 28, 2015, and we subjected them to further analysis to only include those who made 10+ edits to pages in the projects' scope, those who made 4+ edits to the projects' space, and those who made 10+ edits to pages in scope but not 4+ edits to pages in the projects' space. This latter metric gives us an idea of who is active in a certain subject area of Wikipedia, yet who isn't actively engaging on the WikiProject's pages. This information will help us prioritize WikiProjects for pilot testing, and the ProjAnalysis script in general may have future life as an application that can be used by Wikipedians to learn about who is in their community.

Complementing the above two studies are a design analysis, which summarizes the structure of the different WikiProject spaces in our test batch, and the comprehensive census of bots and tools used to maintain WikiProjects, which will be finished soon. With all of this information, we will have a game plan in place! We hope to begin working with specific WikiProjects soon.

As a couple of asides...

  • Database Reports has existed for several years on Wikipedia to the satisfaction of many, but many of the reports stopped running when the Toolserver was shut off in 2014. However, there is good news: the weekly New WikiProjects and WikiProjects by Changes reports are back, with potential future reports in the future.
  • WikiProject X has an outpost on Wikidata! Check it out. It's not widely publicized, but we are interested in using Wikidata as a potential repository for metadata about WikiProjects, especially for WikiProjects that exist on multiple Wikimedia projects and language editions.

That's all for now. Thank you for subscribing! If you have any questions or comments, please share them with us.

Calling all WikiProject X members!

Hello fellow member! WikiProject X needs your help!

We studied the various needs that WikiProjects have, and have come up with some ideas for our first round of WikiProject tool development. These include:

  • An automatically updated WikiProject directory that surfaces WikiProject-related metrics and automatically generates a list of active participants and potential members;
  • A lightweight, optional alternative to WikiProject banners, featuring an option to quickly send a message to the named WikiProjects;
  • A tool that bootstraps WikiProjects; and
  • A worklist generation script for WikiProjects

We are now looking for volunteer coders to work on these projects. If you are interested in developing these tools, or if you would to volunteer for other tasks, check out our new volunteers portal. Thank you for your help!

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 3

Greetings! For this month's issue...

We have demos!

After a lengthy research and design process, we decided for WikiProject X to focus on two things:

  • A WikiProject workflow that focuses on action items: discussions you can participate in and tasks you can perform to improve the encyclopedia; and
  • An automatically updating WikiProject directory that gives you lists of users participating in the WikiProject and editing in that subject area.

We have a live demonstration of the new WikiProject workflow at WikiProject Women in Technology, a brand new WikiProject that was set up as an adjunct to a related edit-a-thon in Washington, DC. The goal is to surface action items for editors, and we intend on doing that through automatically updated working lists. We are looking into using SuggestBot to generate lists of outstanding tasks, and we are looking into additional options for automatic worklist generation. This takes the burden off of WikiProject editors to generate these worklists, though there is also a "requests" section for Wikipedians to make individual requests. (As of writing, these automated lists are not yet live, so you will see a blank space under "edit articles" on the demo WikiProject. Sorry about that!) I invite you to check out the WikiProject and leave feedback on WikiProject X's talk page.

Once the demo is sufficiently developed, we will be working on a limited deployment on our pilot WikiProjects. We have selected five for the first round of testing based on the highest potential for impact and will scale up from there.

While a re-designed WikiProject experience is much needed, that alone isn't enough. A WikiProject isn't any good if people have no way of discovering it. This is why we are also developing an automatically updated WikiProject directory. This directory will surface project-related metrics, including a count of active WikiProject participants and of active editors in that project's subject area. The purpose of these metrics is to highlight how active the WikiProject is at the given point of time, but also to highlight that project's potential for success. The directory is not yet live but there is a demonstration featuring a sampling of WikiProjects.

Each directory entry will link to a WikiProject description page which automatically list the active WikiProject participants and subject-area article editors. This allows Wikipedians to find each other based on the areas they are interested in, and this information can be used to revive a WikiProject, start a new one, or even for some other purpose. These description pages are not online yet, but they will use this template, if you want to get a feel of what they will look like.

We need volunteers!

WikiProject X is a huge undertaking, and we need volunteers to support our efforts, including testers and coders. Check out our volunteer portal and see what you can do to help us!

As an aside...

Wouldn't it be cool if lists of requested articles could not only be integrated directly with WikiProjects, but also shared between WikiProjects? Well, we got the crazy idea of having experimental software feature Flow deployed (on a totally experimental basis) on the new Article Request Workshop, which seeks to be a place where editors can "workshop" article ideas before they get created. It uses Flow because Flow allows, essentially, section-level categorization, and in the future will allow "sections" (known as "topics" within Flow) to be included across different pages. What this means is that you have a recommendation for a new article tagged by multiple WikiProjects, allowing for the recommendation to appear on lists for each WikiProject. This will facilitate inter-WikiProject collaboration and will help to reduce duplicated work. The Article Request Workshop is not entirely ready yet due to some bugs with Flow, but we hope to integrate it into our pilot WikiProjects at some point.

Hi there, I'm sorry but I've had to remove Sybil Plumlee from your WikiCup submissions page. Although overall you've done enough work to count as significant, we can only count the work that has been completed during 2015. Because your work this year has been finalisations before the GA nomination - i.e. copyedits, renaming and editing of citations, it does not count as significant purely on the work this year. I thought best to do this as soon as possible so as not to leave you in the lurch at the end of the round. Miyagawa (talk) 18:21, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

The second round one has all wrapped up, and round three has now begun! Congratulations to the 34 contestants who have made it through, but well done and thank you to all contestants who took part in our second round. Leading the way overall was   Cas Liber (submissions) in Group B with a total of 777 points for a variety of contributions including Good Articles on Corona Borealis and Microscopium - both of which received the maximum bonus.

Special credit must be given to a number of high importance articles improved during the second round.

The points varied across groups, with the lowest score required to gain automatic qualification was 68 in Group A - meanwhile the second place score in Group H was 404, which would have been high enough to win all but one of the other Groups! As well as the top two of each group automatically going through to the third round, a minimum score of 55 was required for a wildcard competitor to go through. We had a three-way tie at 55 points and all three have qualified for the next round, in the spirit of fairness. The third round ends on June 28, with the top two in each group progressing automatically while the remaining 16 highest scorers across all four groups go through as wildcards. Good luck to all competitors for the third round! Figureskatingfan (talk · contribs · email), Miyagawa (talk · contribs · email) and Sturmvogel 66 (talk · contribs · email) 16:21, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Cross-language Editing and Learning Exchange

Hi Jason,

I finally created the WikiProject I was talking about at the last meetup: Wikipedia:Wikiproject Cross-language Editing and Learning Exchange.

'Til It Happens To You

Hey, I just thought you should know (seeing as how you've essentially written the entire page for the song): According to this billboard article, Gaga wrote the song with Diane Warren and shares a writing credit. Also, I don't think the producer you've listed is correct either. The article linked doesn't offer any definitive statement in regards to whether or not he's actually the producer; there have been rumors that Gaga produced the track herself on her own. Reece Leonard (talk) 19:45, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

@Reece Leonard: Thanks for leaving a note. I did create an article using a couple sources, but I did not add the bit about the producer. I am currently traveling, but hopefully I can work on the article again soon. Or, hopefully some WikiProject Lady Gaga members will beat me to the punch. Feel free to make any appropriate edits to the article in the meantime since I cannot work on it at this moment. Thanks again! ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:58, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

A cheeseburger for you!

  Hey, just wanted to thank you for your persistent revert of unsourced additions to Honeymoon (Lana Del Rey album). I've had the page protected now so there shouldn't be any more trouble! Have a great day :) Azealia911 talk 15:34, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Are you still involved with Grammy-related articles?

Hey Another Believer! Do you still work on Grammy-related articles? Erick (talk) 20:01, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

@Magiciandude: Not as much as in the past, but I still have an interest in Grammy-related articles/lists and have many on my watchlist. Why do you ask? ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:15, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I was actually considering working on the article about the Latin Grammy Awards itself and I was wondering if you'd be interested in helping out. Cheers! Erick (talk) 20:19, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
 : @Magiciandude: Thanks for the invite! Unfortunately, I am mostly interested in the lists of winners and I am also working on several larger, time-consuming projects such as Wiki Loves Pride and other article campaigns. I'd love to see that article and other Grammy lists (Latin or otherwise) promote to quality status, though! Maybe drop a note at the Grammy Awards task force? ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:37, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
Ah, dang. Oh well. :( At the very least, I'll let you and the task force know if I have nominated the article GAN sometime in the future. Thank anyway, cheers! Erick (talk) 20:44, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride!

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride!

  • What? Wiki Loves Pride, a campaign to document and photograph LGBT culture and history, including pride events
  • When? June 2015
  • How can you help?
    1.) Create or improve LGBT-related articles and showcase the results of your work here
    2.) Upload photographs or other media related to LGBT culture and history, including pride events, and add images to relevant Wikipedia articles; feel free to create a subpage with a gallery of your images (see examples from last year)
    3.) Contribute to an LGBT-related task force at another Wikimedia project (Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikivoyage, etc.)

Or, view or update the current list of Tasks. This campaign is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group, an officially recognized affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation. Visit the group's page at Meta-Wiki for more information, or follow Wikimedia LGBT+ on Facebook. Remember, Wiki Loves Pride is about creating and improving LGBT-related content at Wikimedia projects, and content should have a neutral point of view. One does not need to identify as LGBT or any other gender or sexual minority to participate. This campaign is about adding accurate, reliable information to Wikipedia, plain and simple, and all are welcome!

If you have any questions, please leave a message on the campaign's main talk page.


Thanks, and happy editing!
