Guild of Copy Editors December 2022 Newsletter error edit

The GOCE December 2022 newsletter, as sent on 9 December, contains an erroneous start date for our December Blitz.

About refrences edit

First of all hello dear admin

Second, I have a question about citation, does citation of sites like BoredPanda, DeMilked, DesignBoom that the person posted accept as refrence?

Thanks for your patience Zzztty (talk) 20:33, 12 December 2022 (UTC)Reply

Hello Zzztty. You should see WP:RS for the full guideline, but the short answer is no, those are very unlikely to be acceptable sources. I am only familiar with BoredPanda personally, but it sounds like those are examples of user-generated content. I'm struggling to think of a time when something like that would be a good source. --BDD (talk) 00:52, 13 December 2022 (UTC)Reply
Thanks for your answer, Because I saw in many Wikipedia article they added their own site as source, Bored Panda and Design Boom as refrence so I asked this to be sure that is it legal now or it was for some years ago.
Thanks a lot for your great response Zzztty (talk) 19:38, 13 December 2022 (UTC)Reply

Contentious topics procedure adopted edit

You are receiving this message because you are subscribed to updates on the Arbitration Committee's discretionary sanctions review process.

The Arbitration Committee has concluded the 2021-22 review of the contentious topics system (formerly known as discretionary sanctions), and its final decision is viewable at the revision process page. As part of the review process, the Arbitration Committee has resolved by motion that:

The above proposals that are supported by an absolute majority of unrecused active arbitrators are hereby enacted. The drafting arbitrators (CaptainEek, L235, and Wugapodes) are directed to take the actions necessary to bring the proposals enacted by this motion into effect, including by amending the procedures at WP:AC/P and WP:AC/DS. The authority granted to the drafting arbitrators by this motion expires one month after enactment.

The Arbitration Committee thanks all those who have participated in the 2021-22 discretionary sanctions review process and all who have helped bring it to a successful conclusion. This motion concludes the 2021-22 discretionary sanctions review process.

This motion initiates a one-month implementation period for the updates to the contentious topics system. The Arbitration Committee will announce when the initial implementation of the Committee's decision has concluded and the amendments made by the drafting arbitrators in accordance with the Committee's decision take effect. Any editors interested in the implementation process are invited to assist at the implementation talk page, and editors interested in updates may subscribe to the update list.

User:Drapetomanic/Impropriety edit

What do you think? Drapetomanic (talk) 03:39, 23 February 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hi Drapetomanic. It's been long enough since the deletion of the previous Impropriety that I don't see any reason not to try for something like this, especially since the previous version was just a redirect. I've made a few changes myself, many with an eye to complying with MOS:DAB. I haven't done anything with the last entry (before my new See also section), but disambiguation pages really shouldn't have (or need) references. If this concept isn't covered on Wikipedia at this time—and I couldn't find it with a quick search—it's better to leave it off. A disambiguation page is a guide to existing content, and doesn't need to be comprehensive for any possible meaning. --BDD (talk) 16:15, 26 February 2023 (UTC)Reply

Speedy deletion nomination of Tonelada (disambiguation) edit

 

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 Tonelada (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G14 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates only one extant Wikipedia page and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic);
  • disambiguates zero extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title; or
  • is an orphaned redirect with a title ending in "(disambiguation)" that does not target a disambiguation page or page that has a disambiguation-like function.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

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 deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Recurring events established in 1346 edit

 

A tag has been placed on Category:Recurring events established in 1346 indicating that it is currently empty, and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion. If it remains empty for seven days or more, it may be deleted under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion.

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. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself. –Aidan721 (talk) 17:34, 8 May 2023 (UTC)Reply

Redirect deletion edit

Hello BDD. I've had a look back at my contribution history and noticed a couple of deletions, one of which was Tom Fenton (ice hockey), which seems to have been deleted at Redirects for Discussion back in 2015. I barely remember this article and don't remember the circumstances of it being redirected, or many details at all. Would you be willing to restore the pre-redirect text to a draft or subpage so I can review and potentially fix it, using reliable sources, and recreate an actual article? - Who is John Galt? 13:40, 27 May 2023 (UTC)Reply
