2016 GA Cup-Finals

WikiProject Good Articles's 2016 GA Cup - Round 3
 

Hello, GA Cup competitors!

Tuesday saw the end of Round 3. Sainsf, for the third time, won with a sizable 487 points and a shocking 29 articles reviewed. In second, MPJ-DK had 168 points and 7 reviewed articles. In second place, MPJ-DK earned 168 points with just 7 articles, and in third place, Carbrera received 137 points with just 9 articles. Our two wildcard slots went to J Milburn with 122 points and Sturmvogel 66 with 101 points.

In Round 3, 65 reviews were completed! At the beginning of the GA Cup, there were 595 outstanding nominations in the GAN queue; by the end of Round 3, there were 394. Another demonstrable way in which this competition has made a difference is in the length of time articles languish in the queue. At the beginning of the GA Cup, the longest wait was over 9 months [1]; at the end of Round 3, the longest wait had decreased significantly, to a little over 5 months [2]—nothing before 2016. It's clear that we continue to make a difference at GAN and throughout Wikipedia, something we should all be proud of. Thanks to all our competitors for helping to make the GA Cup a continued success, and for your part in helping other editors improve articles. We hope to see all remaining users fighting it out in the Finals for the GA Cup so that are successes continue.

To qualify for the Finals, contestants had to earn the highest scores in each of the three pools in Round 3; plus, as well as the top 2 of all remaining users in all of the pools. For the Finals, users were placed in one pool of the remaining five users. To win the GA Cup, you must have the most points. The Finals started on June 1 at 0:00:01 UTC' and end on June 30 at 23:59:59 UTC. Information about the Finals and the pools can be found here. A clarification: in order for the points to count, you must mark your reviews as completed; it's not up to the judges to ensure that all reviews are completed by the end of a round.

We wish all the contestants the best of luck!

Cheers from Figureskatingfan, 3family6, Jaguar, MrWooHoo, and Zwerg Nase.

Hands Across Hawthorne

Hello:

I noticed your comments about links in Hands Across Hawthorne on the GOCE page. This might help. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Linking

Based on this, links generally appear only once in an article, so if you have established a link in the lead you do not need to repeat it in the text. Had I edited the article I would have removed all of the duplicate links. Not sure why the GA reviewer left them.

Hope this is useful.

Cheers Twofingered Typist (talk) 12:59, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

I've always appreciated the nuance/ambiguity in the sentence: "Generally, a link should appear only once in an article, but if helpful for readers, a link may be repeated in infoboxes, tables, image captions, footnotes, hatnotes, and at the first occurrence after the lead." I think that many editors interpret this in the way that the GA reviewer did: links in the lead, but not so many that it's a sea of blue, and then links in the article body. – Jonesey95 (talk) 13:45, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
@Twofingered Typist: Thanks for commenting. My personal preference is to link in the lead and again the first time a word or phrase appears in the article body. However, I've reverted the article to the version without duplicate linking. @Jonesey95: Your comment just confuses me more. What am I supposed to do!? :p ---Another Believer (Talk) 14:20, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
Unfortunately, you're supposed to use your best judgment, which means that other people will occasionally but inevitably disagree with your choices. WP is not known for bright-line style rules. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:23, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
No worries! I was just agreeing with your note re: the statement's ambiguity. ---Another Believer (Talk) 14:39, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

@Twofingered Typist and Jonesey95: Do either of you have a sense whether or not this article would even come close to meeting FA criteria? I've written three FAs, but they are longer articles. ---Another Believer (Talk) 14:41, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Not me. I would have to look at the criteria. My involvement in FA preparation is limited to fixing prose and making sure citation formatting is consistent. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:45, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
Nor do I, sorry. My WP involvement to this point is strictly editorial - oh, and preaching the gospel of archiving URLs. :-) Twofingered Typist (talk) 17:52, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
No problem! I've requested a peer review for the article, so perhaps that will tilt the scale one way or the other. Thanks again, both of you! ---Another Believer (Talk) 18:36, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Peer review

Hi there - I noticed Hands Across Hawthorne has been over at Peer Review for quite a while. Are you still wanting someone to take a look? -Pax Verbum 05:55, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

@Pax85: I am! I am curious if the article might be FA-worthy. Any feedback would be helpful, if you are willing. ---Another Believer (Talk) 13:06, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
OK. I am in the middle of a copy-edit over at GOCE. When I finish that, probably towards the end of the week, I will take a look. I usually focus on prose and such, but I will attempt to give any other feedback as well. -Pax Verbum 15:52, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
@Pax85: Very much appreciated. ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:37, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

@Pax85: And, of course, feel free to follow along, leave comments, or express any other concerns you may have about the article. I am glad to be getting more feedback from other editors, too. ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:41, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

FA Request

Good luck with your nomination of HAH to FA status. I certainly don't think that its length could possibly come into play. I suspect, however, that all of its web citations will need to be working and archived. Other than that, I'd be surprised if it isn't nominated. Cheers.

June 2016 Guild of Copy Editors Newsletter

Guild of Copy Editors June 2016 News
 

Hello everyone, welcome to the June 2016 GOCE newsletter. It's been a few months since we sent one out; we hope y'all haven't forgotten about the Guild! Your coordinators have been busy behind the scenes as usual, though real life has a habit of reducing our personal wiki-time. The May backlog reduction drive, the usual coordinating tasks and preparations for the June election are keeping us on our toes!

May drive: Thanks to everyone who participated in last month's record-setting backlog reduction drive. Of the 29 people who signed up, 16 copyedited at least one article, 197 copyedits were recorded on the drive page, and the copyedit backlog fell below 1,500 for the first time! Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

June Blitz: this one-week copy-editing blitz will occur from 12 June through 18 June; the themes will be video games and Asian geography.

Coordinator elections: It's election time again; how quickly they seem to roll around! Nominations for the next tranche of Guild coordinators, who will serve a six-month term that begins at 00:01 UTC on 1 July and ends at 23:59 UTC on 31 December, opens at 00:01 UTC on 1 June and closes at 23:59 UTC on 15 June. Voting takes place between 00:01 UTC on 16 June and 23:59 UTC on 30 June. If you'd like to assist behind the scenes, please consider stepping forward; self-nominations are welcomed and encouraged. All Wikipedia editors in good standing are eligible; remember it's your Guild, and it doesn't run itself!

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Miniapolis and Baffle gab1978.

Khalifa errors

how can Khalifa be listed as a mixtape by title but album by name? makes no sense.

There needs to be a discussion about album vs. mixtape, but we should not redirect and eliminate the article's history. Once a discussion has been held, we can move the article, if needed. ---Another Believer (Talk) 01:58, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

Photos

re your 'thank you' at Talk:2016 Orlando nightclub shooting/Archive 1#Photos_of_Pulse_in_parade
You're welcome. I transferred photos of Pulse people nearly as soon as I'd read the news, but was unable to find any free pictures of the establishment, so resorted to upload-transferring images of some of the nightclub's people that weren't too risqué. The photographer (Jeff Kern) deserves the most props. -Mardus /talk 06:13, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

Redirects

I'm not sure if you're in the habit of creating redirects for every song on albums, but unless it's a plausible search term, it should not be done. Walter Görlitz (talk) 01:48, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

All of these redirects serve a purpose and do no harm to the encyclopedia. I don't think it is necessary for them to be deleted. ---Another Believer (Talk) 02:23, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
I've declined all of the R3 tags, since R3 is only for typos and misnomers. However, in the future, you should be more careful about creating redirects. Just because it is a song on one album, does not mean that there are no other targets. For example, I redirected Elements and Things to a more well-known album, and turned Gone So Long into a DAB page because many songs use that name. In the future please do not just create redirects because you know it is a track on an album, do a Google search first and see if it shouldn't be a DAB page instead. Depending on what might turn up on searches on the rest of your redirects, I would !vote to disambiguate or delete if Walter Görlitz were to nominate them for RfD. ---- Patar knight - chat/contributions 03:27, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. I"ll be PRODing them now. Just because it 'could possibly be a DAB, doesn't mean it is, and I won't be taking to to DAB. Do you know how many pages we would have if that were even a suggested guideline? Don't be irresponsible. Walter Görlitz (talk) 03:32, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
Hm, I'd hardly call creating purposeful redirects irresponsible. This is the first complaint I've received, and I've been redirecting songs title to album articles for years. ---Another Believer (Talk) 04:34, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
Sorry. You're right. I should have taken them to XfD. You've added more than 38 redirects, most of which will never be used. The average modern album has 12 songs. Redirects for each song are not necessary, but I'll be happy to see what the XfD says, and I'll be sure to take it up at the music project. Walter Görlitz (talk) 06:19, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

I didn't realize until after posting the RfD that such an experienced editor made these redirects. I'll withdraw the RfD if these kinds of redirects are normal. I just discovered the other (old, unrelated) issue with an admin making hundreds of spurious redirects, thought maybe this was similar at first.

I listed case/lang/veirs as from Portland, Oregon, thought you might want to know.

@WhisperToMe: Sure thing! This is more of an online collaboration than a meetup, but either way, just wanted to extend an invitation. ---Another Believer (Talk) 13:35, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
Ok! One thing that I thought of: For future Houston meetups/collabs it may help to have info in Spanish too for immigrants who have trouble with English fluency. Since this is on ENwiki I'm not sure if the scope is supposed to be limited to English speakers only or if it's encouraged to invite users from other Wikis to participate too... WhisperToMe (talk) 14:43, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe: I love the idea of having Spanish-language meetup pages, either at Spanish Wikipedia or at English Wikipedia. It would also be great to see Houston- and/or LGBT-related Wikipedia articles being translated into Spanish. I would strongly encourage you to proposed Spanish contributions in whatever ways you see fit. ---Another Believer (Talk) 14:46, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

2016 GA Cup-Wrap Up

WikiProject Good Articles's 2016 GA Cup - Final/Wrap-Up
 

Hello to our truly awesome GA Cup competitors!

Thursday, June 30 saw the end of the 2016 GA Cup. It was a huge success. In the final, our five competitors reviewed an astonishing 207 articles, the most in any GA Cup final thus far. We continue to reach our goals and make a substantial impact in how quickly articles are reviewed for GA status. On March 1, the start of this competition, the article longest in the queue had languished there since June 26, 2015 [3]; in the July 1, 2016 list, the average wait length is just four months [4]. It's clear that we continue to make a difference at GAN and throughout Wikipedia, something we should all be proud of. Thanks to all our competitors for their enthusiasm, and for helping to make the GA Cup a continued success. Remember that most articles can't even be considered for FA status unless it's been passed to GA first, so our efforts have created hundreds of potentials FAs. That is, as they say, a big deal.

The final this time represented a real horse race between our 1st and 2nd place winners. First-time competitor (who had won all previous rounds) Sainsf earned an impressive 1456 points with 91 articles reviewed during the final. Close behind, in second place was Carbrera, also a first-time competitor, reviewed the most articles (94). Their enthusiasm was a treat to witness. Congrats to you both!

The competition went relatively smoothly, with very little drama this time. We had to clarify one rule: in order for the points to count, you must mark your reviews as completed; it's not up to the judges to ensure that all reviews are completed by the end of a round. We were strict about adhering to this clarification, especially at the end of the final. We intend on stressing it in the stated rules for our next competition, which will be announced soon, so watch out for it. We also intend on applying for a grant through Wikimedia to include gift certificates for our winners, to further incentivize the GA Cup.

MrWooHoo should receive special recognition for acting as our main judge, and for stepping in for the rest of the judges when real-life busyness took over. He reviewed the majority of the submissions during our final round. Thanks for your hard work, and for the hard work of all our judges. We look forward to the next competition.

Again, thanks to all our competitors, and congrats to our winners.

Cheers from Figureskatingfan, 3family6, Jaguar, MrWooHoo, and Zwerg Nase.

To subscribe or unsubscribe to future GA Cup newsletter, please add or remove your name to our mailing list. If you are a participant still competing, you will be on the mailing list no matter what as this is the easiest way to communicate between all participants.

Speedy deletion nomination of John Barron (pseudonym)

  Resolved
 

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on John Barron (pseudonym) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.

A little help

Hello, how are you? I was wondering if you can give your opinion and a help on the talk page of Ariana Grande's article of "Into You (Ariana Grande song)", where two editors are always taking away important information from the top, because it refers to critical reception. Ever since I'm on Wikipedia, I know how it is important to add what critics think about the song, almost every good article on Wikipedia concerning music always talk about what critics think about the song at the top (including yours), but these editors are always taking away those information and it's happening all the time, mainly with Ariana Grande's articles, or with these "teen artists" such as Justin Bieber and Zayn. Can you help me? Thanks so much! FanofPopMusic (talk) 13:45, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

I just saw that one of these two editors also took away the critical reception at the top of the Consideration article that I created. Guess it feels like a persecution, because every single good article on Wikipedia can have critical opinion at the top, but the editor keeps using WP:SYNT as an excuse to exclude it.

Ways to improve Lionsong

Hi, I'm 0xF8E8. Another Believer, thanks for creating Lionsong!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Hi. I noticed you'd created Stonemilker and Lionsong, which are pretty good starts but could use some better references; it's worth reading over WP:IRS. Several good articles in Time, Rolling Stone, Slate you could use to expand them.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. —0xF8E8 (talk) 21:26, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

@0xF8E8: Thanks. Yes, I created these redirects, but I did not expand the articles today. That was a different user. ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:29, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
Ah. Sorry, the Page Curation tool tends to screw up when a new user expands from old redirects. Thanks anyways, though. —0xF8E8 (talk) 21:31, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
No worries! ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:32, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Goodnight City

Hey, just want to let you know as I saw you created Goodnight City, I redirected it for now because there were only two bare URL citations and I don't think at this point there's enough coverage to warrant a standalone article. Maybe there is more coverage than a simple Google search reveals, which might make it notable at the moment, and I'm sure as more details are announced closer to its release it will become notable, but with two for now it didn't seem so..

Thanks for the heads up. I will expand the article a bit. ---Another Believer (Talk) 14:21, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
