TFAEdit

Thank you today for Douglas Albert Munro, "the only member of the U.S. Coast Guard to receive the Medal of Honor and namesake of USCGC Munro, and several other American warships and military posts. Munro was killed in action during the Second Battle of the Matanikau. His uncle was Francis Fairey, a onetime member of the House of Commons of Canada. Munro is also the namesake of a very snappy, quick march."! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:24, 11 October 2019 (UTC)

Two years!

A request concerning previously declined reviewer-requestEdit

Hallo. When you declined my request for pending changes reviewer permission, you said that you are concerned about my additions of WP:OR. Unfortunately, when I was notified about this, I didn't even know how to SIGN A COMMENT. I have replied now to that WP:OR accusation.

Please respond to my current request for reviewer permission, since NO ONE is apparently responding due to the above.— Vaibhavafro💬 11:04, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi Vaibhavafro - if you only learned to sign comments less than 30 days ago, you might benefit from a bit more experience before becoming a pending changes reviewer. Thank you for your enthusiasm. Chetsford (talk) 13:53, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
@Chetsford:No, you misunderstood. I didn't know how to SIGN back in JUNE (when that user notified me about that alleged WP:OR). Not, 30 days ago. Regards, — Vaibhavafro💬 14:10, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
If still you think that I am not fit for this, please decline my request. I will try after an year.— Vaibhavafro💬 14:13, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

New Page Review newsletter November 2019Edit

Hello Chetsford,

This newsletter comes a little earlier than usual because the backlog is rising again and the holidays are coming very soon.

Getting the queue to 0

There are now 728 holders of the New Page Reviewer flag! Most of you requested the user right to be able to do something about the huge backlog but it's still roughly less than 10% doing 90% of the work. Now it's time for action.
Exactly one year ago there were 'only' 3,650 unreviewed articles, now we will soon be approaching 7,000 despite the growing number of requests for the NPR user right. If each reviewer soon does only 2 reviews a day over five days, the backlog will be down to zero and the daily input can then be processed by every reviewer doing only 1 review every 2 days - that's only a few minutes work on the bus on the way to the office or to class! Let's get this over and done with in time to relax for the holidays.
Want to join? Consider adding the NPP Pledge userbox.
Our next newsletter will announce the winners of some really cool awards.

Coordinator

Admin Barkeep49 has been officially invested as NPP/NPR coordinator by a unanimous consensus of the community. This is a complex role and he will need all the help he can get from other experienced reviewers.

This month's refresher course

Paid editing is still causing headaches for even our most experienced reviewers: This official Wikipedia article will be an eye-opener to anyone who joined Wikipedia or obtained the NPR right since 2015. See The Hallmarks to know exactly what to look for and take time to examine all the sources.

Tools
  • It is now possible to select new pages by date range. This was requested by reviewers who want to patrol from the middle of the list.
  • It is now also possible for accredited reviewers to put any article back into the New Pages Feed for re-review. The link is under 'Tools' in the side bar.
Reviewer Feedback

Would you like feedback on your reviews? Are you an experienced reviewer who can give feedback to other reviewers? If so there are two new feedback pilot programs. New Reviewer mentorship will match newer reviewers with an experienced reviewer with a new reviewer. The other program will be an occasional peer review cohort for moderate or experienced reviewers to give feedback to each other. The first cohort will launch November 13.

Second set of eyes
  • Not only are New Page Reviewers the guardians of quality of new articles, they are also in a position to ensure that pages are being correctly tagged for deletion and maintenance and that new authors are not being bitten. This is an important feature of your work, especially while some routine tagging for deletion can still be carried out by non NPR holders and inexperienced users. Read about it at the Monitoring the system section in the tutorial. If you come across such editors doing good work, don't hesitate to encourage them to apply for NPR.
  • Do be sure to have our talk page on your watchlist. There are often items that require reviewers' special attention, such as to watch out for pages by known socks or disruptive editors, technical issues and new developments, and of course to provide advice for other reviewers.
Arbitration Committee

The annual ArbCom election will be coming up soon. All eligible users will be invited to vote. While not directly concerned with NPR, Arbcom cases often lead back to notability and deletion issues and/or actions by holders of advanced user rights.

Community Wish list

There is to be no wish list for WMF encyclopedias this year. We thank Community Tech for their hard work addressing our long list of requirements which somewhat overwhelmed them last year, and we look forward to a successful completion.
