ANEdit

 
I bitz yur artikl till it ded then I delete it.
In memory of content writer Richard Arthur Norton, lynched at AN after 13 years and 6 months at Wikipedia.

I’ve unblocked and opened the discussion about RAN again per your concerns. Just as a personal note, I can assure you that getting it done in the dark or anything of the sort was not on my mind (I don’t typically celebrate Father’s Day so it wasn’t even on my mind.) My biggest concern in situations like these is being respectful to everyone involved, and when it appears likely to be a blood bath I typically side on ending it quickly. Enough people have expressed a desire to comment to change the situation, though, so opening it again makes sense. Thanks for raising the issue. TonyBallioni (talk) 14:52, 18 June 2018 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Dickies-BananaSplits-sm.jpgEdit

 

Thanks for uploading File:Dickies-BananaSplits-sm.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:25, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Invitation to participate in studyEdit

Hello,

I am E. Whittaker, an intern at Wikimedia with the Scoring Team to create a labeled dataset, and potentially a tool, to help editors deal with incivility when they encounter it on talk pages. A full write-up of the study can be found here: m:Research:Civil_Behavior_Interviews. We are currently recruiting editors to be interviewed about their experiences with incivility on talk pages. Would you be interested in being interviewed? I am contacting you because of your involvement in Wikipedia’s Women in Red project. The interviews should take ~1 hour, and will be conducted over BlueJeans (which does allow interviews to be recorded). If, so, please email me at ewhit@umich.edu in order to schedule an interview.

Thank you Ewitch51 (talk) 20:48, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

The Right Stuff: July 2018Edit

July 2018
DISCUSSION REPORT
WikiProject Conservatism Comes Under Fire

By Lionelt

WikiProject Conservatism was a topic of discussion at the Administrators' Noticeboard/Incident (AN/I). Objective3000 started a thread where he expressed concern regarding the number of RFC notices posted on the Discussion page suggesting that such notices "could result in swaying consensus by selective notification." Several editors participated in the relatively abbreviated six hour discussion. The assertion that the project is a "club for conservatives" was countered by editors listing examples of users who "profess no political persuasion." It was also noted that notification of WikiProjects regarding ongoing discussions is explicitly permitted by the WP:Canvassing guideline.

At one point the discussion segued to feedback about The Right Stuff. Member SPECIFICO wrote: "One thing I enjoy about the Conservatism Project is the handy newsletter that members receive on our talk pages." Atsme praised the newsletter as "first-class entertainment...BIGLY...first-class...nothing even comes close...it's amazing." Some good-natured sarcasm was offered with Objective3000 observing, "Well, they got the color right" and MrX's followup, "Wow. Yellow is the new red."

Admin Oshwah closed the thread with the result "definitely not an issue for ANI" and directing editors to the project Discussion page for any further discussion. Editor's note: originally the design and color of The Right Stuff was chosen to mimic an old, paper newspaper.

Margaret Thatcher Makes History Again

By Lionelt

Margaret Thatcher is the first article promoted at the new WikiProject Conservatism A-Class review. Congratulations to Neveselbert. A-Class is a quality rating which is ranked higher than GA (Good article) but the criteria are not as rigorous as FA (Featued article). WikiProject Conservatism is one of only two WikiProjects offering A-Class review, the other being WikiProject Military History. Nominate your article here. (Discuss this story)
RECENT RESEARCH
Research About AN/I

By Lionelt

Reprinted in part from the April 26, 2018 issue of The Signpost; written by Zarasophos

 

Out of over one hundred questioned editors, only twenty-seven (27%) are happy with the way reports of conflicts between editors are handled on the Administrators' Incident Noticeboard (AN/I), according to a recent survey . The survey also found that dissatisfaction has varied reasons including "defensive cliques" and biased administrators as well as fear of a "boomerang effect" due to a lacking rule for scope on AN/I reports. The survey also included an analysis of available quantitative data about AN/I. Some notable takeaways:

  • 53% avoided making a report due to fearing it would not be handled appropriately
  • "Otherwise 'popular' users often avoid heavy sanctions for issues that would get new editors banned."
  • "Discussions need to be clerked to keep them from raising more problems than they solve."

In the wake of Zarasophos' article editors discussed the AN/I survey at The Signpost and also at AN/I. Ironically a portion of the AN/I thread was hatted due to "off-topic sniping." To follow-up the problems identified by the research project the Wikimedia Foundation Anti-Harassment Tools team and Support and Safety team initiated a discussion. You can express your thoughts and ideas here.

Shadowowl Over-AfdingEdit

Hi,

I had been wondering why the AfD rate had exploded out of control, particularly yesterday. As you noted ShadowOwl made 3 posts in less than a minute. Yesterday (21st) he nominated something near 170 articles. Notability is the standard grounds, and there's no way he could have performed the required process for that many. Is there something specific we can do about this? Nosebagbear (talk) 14:09, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

I found one instance in which Shadowowl made SIX nominations in one minute! We're talking blockable disruption at this point... Carrite (talk) 14:12, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.12 30 July 2018Edit

 
Chart of the New Pages Patrol backlog for the past 6 months. (Purge)

Hello Carrite, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

June backlog drive

Overall the June backlog drive was a success, reducing the last 3,000 or so to below 500. However, as expected, 90% of the patrolling was done by less than 10% of reviewers.
Since the drive closed, the backlog has begun to rise sharply again and is back up to nearly 1,400 already. Please help reduce this total and keep it from raising further by reviewing some articles each day.

New technology, new rules
  • New features are shortly going to be added to the Special:NewPagesFeed which include a list of drafts for review, OTRS flags for COPYVIO, and more granular filter preferences. More details can be found at this page.
  • Probationary permissions: Now that PERM has been configured to allow expiry dates to all minor user rights, new NPR flag holders may sometimes be limited in the first instance to 6 months during which their work will be assessed for both quality and quantity of their reviews. This will allow admins to accord the right in borderline cases rather than make a flat out rejection.
  • Current reviewers who have had the flag for longer than 6 months but have not used the permissions since they were granted will have the flag removed, but may still request to have it granted again in the future, subject to the same probationary period, if they wish to become an active reviewer.
Editathons
  • Editathons will continue through August. Please be gentle with new pages that obviously come from good faith participants, especially articles from developing economies and ones about female subjects. Consider using the 'move to draft' tool rather than bluntly tagging articles that may have potential but which cannot yet reside in mainspace.
The Signpost
  • The next issue of the monthly magazine will be out soon. The newspaper is an excellent way to stay up to date with news and new developments between our newsletters. If you have special messages to be published, or if you would like to submit an article (one about NPR perhaps?), don't hesitate to contact the editorial team here.

A bowl of strawberries for you!Edit

  Thanks for reviewing Deborah Parker and others! New pages review is an undervalued task here in the encyclopedia, something that does not show up in one's user contributions and that one would not know occurred unless they got a notification or know where to look. It may be undervalued, but it is valued by me, as are your contributions. —Nøkkenbuer (talkcontribs) 11:14, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

Dewey GoodeEdit

Thank you, very much appreciated! Hope I see you around more often. --Southern Iowan (talk) 17:08, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

Southern Iowan — I haven't played with an article about which I knew nothing for a while. This was a really big figure in Iowa politics, credit to you for getting the page started. Carrite (talk) 17:17, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

Donning of a uniform for some sort of homogenized cult.Edit

Well lets just say, there are enough people scared of the guys in uniform, especially when the guy has a legal right to carry the gun and use it at will. --DBigXray 19:50, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Rose Street ClubEdit

Carrite, I hope you are well. I was just wondering, re. the above, if you could take a look and see if I've missed out some blindingly obvious sourcing? I don't think so; but it's slightly out of my comfort zone and in any case, my passion for my own blindspot is legendary. Incidentally—apologies, it didn't occur to me—but if, actually, if it's not something you feel able to comment on, then of course no problem. How goes EVD? ¡Adelante!. —SerialNumber54129 paranoia /cheap sh*t room 17:48, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi. This is showing as a red link for me, did you type something wrong? Carrite (talk) 18:17, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
Hi Carrite, always good to see you around. What my dearest friend Serial probably was requesting after a couple of a couple of beers gulped down in a couple of minutes :D was your assistance in checking whether there's some good sourcing available for Rose Street Club that can help in converting it from the current red link in a few articles to blue. Besides that, hope you're doing well and all is fine at your end. Warmly, Lourdes 23:56, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
I'm not even sure what Rose Street Club is, sorry to say. Carrite (talk) 00:22, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
Lourdes I am not an alcoholic; @Carrite, apologies, I hadn't saved the page at that point, which made the exercise...temporarily pointless?! Hope all is well all! —SerialNumber54129 paranoia /cheap sh*t room 17:40, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
Wow, that's an impressive piece of work! English anarchism is outside the focus of my books and film, so I really have nothing to add. Carrite (talk) 18:08, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
That's really kind of you Carrite, and thanks for the barnstar. As I said, it's quite out of my (on-WP) comfort zone (although not as an area of interest), and so I deliberately filled it full of red links—obscure clubs, societies, individuals, who should all be turnable blue. Should be an interesting little project! Hope you have a good weekend—by the way, what's your film? —SerialNumber54129 paranoia /cheap sh*t room 19:13, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

File source problem with File:92-engels-socialism-titlepage.jpgEdit

Thank you for uploading File:92-engels-socialism-titlepage.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 21:19, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for updating this - "(scan of title page from copy in Tim Davenport collection, by me) " was the updated information that was needed in the source field. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 07:31, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Yes. Carrite (talk) 23:37, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Better source request for File:94-RomanismAtWashington.jpgEdit

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain, search engine, pinboard, aggregator, or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 21:41, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Per your comments on my talk page, I've added a generic source line saying this is a scan or mechanical reproduction. Also from your personal collection? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 07:34, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
I don't remember. That or a Google scan. Carrite (talk) 09:18, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks...

File:14-alaska-socialistpartyleaflet.jpgEdit

Courtesy notification to say, I've added a 'generic' source to this.. If it was a specfic scan feel free to update.. The reason for all this updating is that I'm trying get this query down to zero entries, https://quarry.wmflabs.org/query/29651, and a situation where all Wikipedia media will be unaffected by some of the more objectionable portions of the changes proposed to copyright policy by various governments.ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 09:31, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018Edit

Hello Carrite, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Other
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).

Chart of the New Pages Patrol backlog for the past 6 months.

Hello Carrite, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

Backlog

As of 21 October 2018, there are 3650 unreviewed articles and the backlog now stretches back 51 days.

Community Wishlist Proposal
Project updates
  • ORES predictions are now built-in to the feed. These automatically predict the class of an article as well as whether it may be spam, vandalism, or an attack page, and can be filtered by these criteria now allowing reviewers to better target articles that they prefer to review.
  • There are now tools being tested to automatically detect copyright violations in the feed. This detector may not be accurate all the time, though, so it shouldn't be relied on 100% and will only start working on new revisions to pages, not older pages in the backlog.

FYI, Oliver Carlson entryEdit

FYI, I just started an entry on Oliver Carlson and am letting you know as I ran into some H-NET posts with your name on them regarding him. Aboudaqn (talk) 14:43, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

FYI, T.J. O'Flaherty / Tom Maidhc O'Flaherty entryEdit

That reminds me: in response to an Irish graduate student's query to you, which you shared on HOAC, did I tell you I had started an entry on Tom Maidhc O'Flaherty aka T.J. O'Flaherty? Aboudaqn (talk) 21:02, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

@Aboudaqn - That's fantastic! I'll keep my eyes peeled for a photo. Here is my database entry:

Father was Maidhc Mhicil Phádraig Ó Flaiherta ("Michael O'Flaherty"), mother Margaret "Maggie" Ganley, married 1872 and had 10 children. The family lived in poverty by farming. Tom's three older sisters had already emigrated to America by the time of his birth and he met them for the first time when he himself emigrated to the US in 1912. His younger brother William "Liam" O'Flaherty became a famous novelist in the 1920s.

Irish nationalist. Member of the IWW, as was his sister Annie, who preceded him to America, living in Roxbury, MA. Founding member of CLP. On Workers' League speakers list, fall 1921. Editor of "The Irish People," 1921 (weekly, lasted 6 mo.). Supporter of Jim Larkin and the Irish American Labor League in 1921. Ass. Ed. of CPA OO, from Jan. 1921 CEC decision. Delegate to 1922 Bridgman Convention. Arrested. Editor "The Voice of Labor" (WPA), 1923. Editor, "The Irish People" (monthly) from c. 2305. Editor of Voice of Labor, as of 2307. Ed. staff of The Daily Worker (columnist), 1924. Supporter of Cannon in the faction fight. First Editor of Labor Defender (Jan. 1926). Publicity director for National Miners Relief Committee and started publication The Coal Digger in connection with that work. Expelled from CP Nov. 1928 for supporting Left Opposition. Editor of Producers News, Plentywood, MT, for about 18 months. Called for Farmer-Labor Party. Advocate of joint work with Lovestone. Left CLA 1930 and dropped from CLA membership 1931, reapplied 1932. Editor of The Wasp [Chicago], first issue April 1, 1931. Uncertain whether there was more than one issue.

Returned to Ireland, December 1932. In his last years he wrote two volumes of short stories about Ireland, contributing to the Irish press, and helping to establish a socialist newspaper, An tÉireannach ("The Irishman"). Died in Inis Mór, Aran Islands, County Galway, Ireland of heart failure in December 1936, probably alcohol-related.

I have him down for an 1889 DOB. Carrite (talk) 11:43, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Outstanding! Aboudaqn (talk) 18:16, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

With which I agree. I've withdrawn. But I think you're wrong about Joe Roe. I think he'd be better than Robert, and his late entry is due to problems with Internet access - he's in the field (he's an archaeologist), hence the delays. Doug Weller talk 09:05, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.15 16 November 2018Edit

 

Chart of the New Pages Patrol backlog for the past 6 months.

Hello Carrite,

Community Wishlist Survey – NPP needs you – Vote NOW
  • Community Wishlist Voting takes place 16 to 30 November for the Page Curation and New Pages Feed improvements, and other software requests. The NPP community is hoping for a good turnout in support of the requests to Santa for the tools we need. This is very important as we have been asking the Foundation for these upgrades for 4 years.
If this proposal does not make it into the top ten, it is likely that the tools will be given no support at all for the foreseeable future. So please put in a vote today.
We are counting on significant support not only from our own ranks, but from everyone who is concerned with maintaining a Wikipedia that is free of vandalism, promotion, flagrant financial exploitation and other pollution.
With all 650 reviewers voting for these urgently needed improvements, our requests would be unlikely to fail. See also The Signpost Special report: 'NPP: This could be heaven or this could be hell for new users – and for the reviewers', and if you are not sure what the wish list is all about, take a sneak peek at an article in this month's upcoming issue of The Signpost which unfortunately due to staff holidays and an impending US holiday will probably not be published until after voting has closed.

Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Fred BauderEdit

You recently offered a statement in a request for arbitration. The Arbitration Committee has accepted that request for arbitration and an arbitration case has been opened at Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Fred Bauder. Evidence that you wish the arbitrators to consider should be added to the evidence subpage, at Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Fred Bauder/Evidence. Please add your evidence by November 27, 2018, which is when the evidence phase closes. You can also contribute to the case workshop subpage, Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Fred Bauder/Workshop.

Charles Dirba and Louis Shapiro could use your helpEdit

Just started stubs for Charles Dirba and Louis Shapiro, who would no doubt benefit from your looksee... Regards Aboudaqn (talk) 22:45, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

Dirba is a big one, Shapiro is the answer to a trivia question. Will take a look soon. -tim /// Carrite (talk) 05:55, 19 November 2018 (UTC)
Nice work on the Dirba. Shapiro will never go beyond a stub, probably. I'll see if I can add some stuff to the Dirba later on. Carrite (talk) 06:16, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Charles Francis PhillipsEdit

Mr Davenport, as an admirer of your work, I come seeking your knowledge and expertise. Are you aware of a certain Charles Francis Phillips? Apparently, he was an American marxist, born in the 1880s or so, and went on to die with the surname 'Shipman'. I've been writing an article about a certain M. Borodin, and came across this Phillips fellow...he seems to have had some level of importance, and yet, we have no article on him. If anyone were to know who this fellow was, I thought it'd have to be you. I'd be much obliged for the disclosure of any information you are privy to. RGloucester 04:42, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi RG. Yes, I know of Phillips/Shipman. He's the producer of an autobiography: Charles Shipman, It Had to Be Revolution: Memoirs of an American Radical. (Cornell University Press, 1993). Info on him is hit and miss all over the map. Here's my database entry:
Charles Shipman (Aug. 10, 1895-Nov. 27, 1989). Born in NYC. Pseudonyms: Allen, Roberto [2nd Congress CI] — Ramirez, Jesus — Gómez, Manuel — Phillips, Charles. Bourgeois upbringing. Draft resister in Mexico from 1917 until his return to the US in 1922. Founding member of the CI representing Mexico along with M.N. Roy, using the name Roberto Allen (not to be confused with Mexican CP leader José Allen). Not a citizen, as of June 1923. A journalist by trade. Foster factional loyalist, he was made the de facto Editor of The Workers Monthly (not Browder, who was listed on the masthead) in 1924 following the formation of that publication by merger of The Liberator, Soviet Russia Pictorial, and Labor Herald. Head of Anti-Imperialist Dept. of Workers (Communist) Party in 1926. Headed delegation to International Congress Against Colonial Oppression and Imperialism, Brussels, Feb. 10-15, 1927. Signer of the 1928 program of the minority published in The Daily Worker, Dec. 11, 1928. SP member from 1915, CP member from 1919 (Mexico).
Best regards, —tim /// Carrite (talk) 05:49, 19 November 2018 (UTC) Ping; RGloucester
Thank you for the information...perhaps I'll be able to put together an article in the coming weeks...if not, at least I'll have some new reading material. RGloucester 06:16, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Nomination of Rachel Parent for deletionEdit

 

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Rachel Parent is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Rachel Parent (2nd nomination) until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.

File:Robertson-Isiah-Butch.jpgEdit

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. See User:RonBot for info on how to not get these messages.

NPR Newsletter No.16 15 December 2018Edit

Hello Carrite,

Reviewer of the Year

This year's award for the Reviewer of the Year goes to Onel5969. Around on Wikipedia since 2011, their staggering number of 26,554 reviews over the past twelve months makes them, together with an additional total of 275,285 edits, one of Wikipedia's most prolific users.

Thanks are also extended for their work to JTtheOG (15,059 reviews), Boleyn (12,760 reviews), Cwmhiraeth (9,001 reviews), Semmendinger (8,440 reviews), PRehse (8,092 reviews), Arthistorian1977 (5,306 reviews), Abishe (4,153 reviews), Barkeep49 (4,016 reviews), and Elmidae (3,615 reviews).
Cwmhiraeth, Semmendinger, Barkeep49, and Elmidae have been New Page Reviewers for less than a year — Barkeep49 for only seven months, while Boleyn, with an edit count of 250,000 since she joined Wikipedia in 2008, has been a bastion of New Page Patrol for many years.

See also the list of top 100 reviewers.

Less good news, and an appeal for some help

The backlog is now approaching 5,000, and still rising. There are around 640 holders of the NPR flag, most of whom appear to be inactive. The 10% of the reviewers who do 90% of the work could do with some support especially as some of them are now taking a well deserved break.


Really good news - NPR wins the Community Wishlist Survey 2019

At #1 position, the Community Wishlist poll closed on 3 December with a resounding success for NPP, reminding the WMF and the volunteer communities just how critical NPP is to maintaining a clean encyclopedia and the need for improved tools to do it. A big 'thank you' to everyone who supported the NPP proposals. See the results.


Training video

Due to a number of changes having been made to the feed since this three-minute video was created, we have been asked by the WMF for feedback on the video with a view to getting it brought up to date to reflect the new features of the system. Please leave your comments here, particularly mentioning how helpful you find it for new reviewers.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated files}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the file's talk page.

NPR Newsletter No.17Edit

Hello Carrite,

News
Discussions of interest
  • Two elements of CSD G6 have been split into their own criteria: R4 for redirects in the "File:" namespace with the same name as a file or redirect at Wikimedia Commons (Discussion), and G14 for disambiguation pages which disambiguate zero pages, or have "(disambiguation)" in the title but disambiguate a single page (Discussion).
  • {{db-blankdraft}} was merged into G13 (Discussion)
  • A discussion recently closed with no consensus on whether to create a subject-specific notability guideline for theatrical plays.
  • There is an ongoing discussion on a proposal to create subject-specific notability guidelines for chemicals and organism taxa.
Reminders
  • NPR is not a binary keep / delete process. In many cases a redirect may be appropriate. The deletion policy and its associated guideline clearly emphasise that not all unsuitable articles must be deleted. Redirects are not contentious. See a classic example of the templates to use. More templates are listed at the R template index. Reviewers who are not aware, do please take this into consideration before PROD, CSD, and especially AfD because not even all admins are aware of such policies, and many NAC do not have a full knowledge of them.
NPP Tools Report
  • Superlinks – allows you to check an article's history, logs, talk page, NPP flowchart (on unpatrolled pages) and more without navigating away from the article itself.
  • copyvio-check – automatically checks the copyvio percentage of new pages in the background and displays this info with a link to the report in the 'info' panel of the Page curation toolbar.
  • The NPP flowchart now has clickable hyperlinks.

Creating a notability guideline for journalistsEdit

Hi Carrite! I noticed in an AfD discussion you participated in in December that you lamented that there's no notability guideline specifically for journalists. I'd be interested in creating something like that—do you have any suggestions for how to go about it? - Sdkb (talk) 17:58, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

@Sdkb:... It's a really hard problem. I'd suggest something combining tenure of the journalist plus stature of the publication might be one path; 15 years at a paper or magazine bigger than a certain size, for example. This would absolutely generate opposition at WP however... Basically, we're saddled with GNG-Minus: sources coming from the publication that which the writer works at are counted out, and competing papers don't write about the journalists of other papers. It's a tough nut to crack... Carrite (talk) 18:39, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.18Edit

Hello Carrite,

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

Niharika Kohli, a product manager for the growth team, announced that work is underway in implementing improvements to New Page Patrol as part of the 2019 Community Wishlist and suggests all who are interested watch the project page on meta. Two requested improvements have already been completed. These are:

  • Allow filtering by no citations in page curation
  • Not having CSD and PRODs automatically marked as reviewed, reflecting current consensus among reviewers and current Twinkle functionality.
Reliable Sources for NPP

Rosguill has been compiling a list of reliable sources across countries and industries that can be used by new page patrollers to help judge whether an article topic is notable or not. At this point further discussion is needed about if and how this list should be used. Please consider joining the discussion about how this potentially valuable resource should be developed and used.

Backlog drive coming soon

Look for information on the an upcoming backlog drive in our next newsletter. If you'd like to help plan this drive, join in the discussion on the New Page Patrol talk page.
