Women Disobey

Thank you for quality articles such as Women Disobey, Pasha Patriki, VELD Music Festival, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, for tireless gnomish work such as adding the date format to hundreds of articles, for saving for posterity – user with a delicious name, you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Women Disobey

I decorated my talk, thank you for the inspiration. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:59, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

It is an awesome photo, isn't it? I knew when I read the words Women Disobey that I must create that page. It is sad that the story of the protests was eclipsed by the senseless shooting at The Capital Gazette. I am having trouble expanding it with Reactions and Aftermath. Two days later, there was another much bigger protest, Families Belong Together (you will love the main infobox photo). That got a lot more coverage. I also started that page and Jmaxfield18 just ran with it (great work!). Jmaxfield18 seems very shy to engage but follows advise, without responding or reverting. A great example of why not to pre-judge an SPA.
Hey, would you be interested in a colloboration project. I have many draft ideas at User:Coffeeandcrumbs/Drafts that I am think of developing. Any of those peak your interest? Or can you suggest something? I have always believe I learn so much when I work side-by-side with someone. It gives me a chance to ask why someone makes certain editing decisions and challenge my own thoughts.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 14:23, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
I love collaboration, but am not familiar with the topics and their sources. I will happily look shortly before you want to move a draft, - how is that? I have my routine of writing an article a day, and am 'booked' for weeks to come. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:47, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
I made it one of my examples, Template:User QAIbox/doc#women disobey, feel free to share. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 05:55, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

A year ago, you were recipient no. 1980 of Precious, a prize of QAI! - Moon, moon, moon, - excellent landing job! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:29, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Visionary Barnstar
Dear Coffeeandcrumbs,

I just want to be the first to congratulate you for your vision and your perseverance to create the first all-space DYK set for July 21. In fact, the whole appearance of the Main Page is a credit to your pioneering vision. It just went live! Enjoy basking in the glow of your stellar achievement! Best, Yoninah (talk) 00:12, 21 July 2019 (UTC)

Yoninah, thank you for my first barnstar ever! And thank you for your patient and diligent assistance in getting this going. I should say that just as much credit should go to User:Kees08 without whom this would never have been possible. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 15:22, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
And a special thanks to Cwmhiraeth. Your act of bravery did not go unnoticed!!! --- Coffeeandcrumbs 17:42, 21 July 2019 (UTC)

Fannie Lou HamerEdit

D'ye think ye'd like to have a go at helping me renominate her? I'm worried that if my explanation didn't push it through the first time, it might not this time either. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.8% of all FPs 03:26, 21 July 2019 (UTC)

Adam Cuerden, I will give it a go on Tuesday. Weekend is not a good time to start a nomination I have noticed. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 05:15, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
No problem! Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.8% of all FPs 20:10, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
It's not on a schedule, but could you let me know when this is done? Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.8% of all FPs 03:20, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
Adam Cuerden, I will let you know. I first have to integrate her into 1964 Democratic National Convention#Mississippi controversy and add the photo there. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 04:03, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
Any progress? Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.9% of all FPs 08:00, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
Adam Cuerden, I am sorry but coordinating WP:OTD has taken all my time. I don't think a nomination would be successful at this times without including the photo in 1964 Democratic National Convention#Mississippi controversy. I have not had time to do that. I am really sorry if I held you up. Perhaps you can ask WP:WOMEN to help fix the convention page because I believe most of the EV of the photo is in that article. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 08:26, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

Main page complimentEdit

Hi, it appeared to me like you did a lot of the work in planning how to recognize the Apollo 11 anniversary this week, and I wanted to make sure you saw a compliment from a reader on WP:VPM.   (I would have mentioned it where the discussions were but seems like there were many in different places.) Schazjmd (talk) 16:41, 21 July 2019 (UTC)

  • I agree completely. Great job with the Main page coverage of the 50th anniversary. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 17:28, 21 July 2019 (UTC)

... with thanks from QAI
  • Joining the chorus: quality job on that project! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:55, 21 July 2019 (UTC)

Page mover grantedEdit

Hello, Coffeeandcrumbs. Your account has been granted the "extendedmover" user right, either following a request for it or demonstrating familiarity with working with article names and moving pages. You are now able to rename pages without leaving behind a redirect, move subpages when moving the parent page(s), and move category pages.

Please take a moment to review Wikipedia:Page mover for more information on this user right, especially the criteria for moving pages without leaving redirect. Please remember to follow post-move cleanup procedures and make link corrections where necessary, including broken double-redirects when suppressredirect is used. This can be done using Special:WhatLinksHere. It is also very important that no one else be allowed to access your account, so you should consider taking a few moments to secure your password. As with all user rights, be aware that if abused, or used in controversial ways without consensus, your page mover status can be revoked.

Hermaphrodite (Nadar) imageEdit

D'ye think it's worth just shoving it into tomorrow's PotD? It's not like anyone's bothered to set up an image for that day. On the other hand, it might encourage some idiot to just pull it immediately. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.9% of all FPs 08:02, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

Better to let it sit where it is at Template:POTD/2020-03-28 and let people get used to the idea slowly. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 02:53, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

Welcome to New Page Patrol!Edit

Welcome, Coffeeandcrumbs to the New Page Patrol team.

Congratulations on receiving the New Page Patrol user permission and on becoming a part of the patroller community. Our mission is to accurately, rather than quickly, handle the new articles which are created. As you begin to patrol it's natural to have lots of questions. Feel free to ask on my talk page or ask for thoughts in the New Page Patroller IRC channel #wikimedia-npp connect or on our Discord server (invite link). We also regularly discuss issues and topics surrounding New Page Patrolling at the NPP discussion page and I would invite you to join us there. If you have any questions please feel free to ask me. I hope you find NPP as rewarding as I do and, again, welcome to the community. ___CAPTAIN MEDUSAtalk 10:15, 23 August 2019 (UTC)

I don't suppose you could clarify which one(s) you support? Cheers! Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.9% of all FPs 15:22, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

Adam Cuerden, sorry. Done. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 15:26, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
No worries! Sorry if I was being vague there, but I never want to manipulate a vote, so I always try not to say too much. By the way, I'm stealing that Women's March on Versailles illustration from the top of your page for my next illustration. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.9% of all FPs 16:21, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
Adam Cuerden, you didn't influence my vote. I was actually waiting for the edges to be cleaned before voting. I didn't think my vote was ambiguous. A POTD of Women's March on Versailles would be great for the 230th anniversary on October 5. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 17:01, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

Everything's Coming up RosesEdit

Hi, you just moved these pages after I did so and I think you just messed it all up. I'm not sure how to resolve it if undoing all your moves or moving it back will fix it but right now it's all screwed up. Sir Joseph (talk) 21:59, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

@Sir Joseph:, we were making the move at the same time. I can fix or you can. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 22:00, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
I'll fix, I can use the practice, and I see you just installed the page swap script so that should make your life easier. Sir Joseph (talk) 22:02, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
Sir Joseph, sounds good. Yeah, the script does seem like the best way to do a swap. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 22:04, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, it does all three steps of the swap in one move, you just have to edit the redirect at the end, so it saves a lot of time. OK, I think we're good with the move. Thanks. Sir Joseph (talk) 22:07, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
Sir Joseph, the talk page got separated, so I moved it separately to fix the last remaining issue. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 22:15, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
ok, thanks. That was weird, and there should be a mechanism at TRM similarly to how RM or RFC's are closed but I guess it's a one in a million that these things happen. Sir Joseph (talk) 22:18, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

New Page Review newsletter September-October 2019Edit

Hello Coffeeandcrumbs,

Backlog

Instead of reaching a magic 300 as it once did last year, the backlog approaching 6,000 is still far too high. An effort is also needed to ensure that older unsuitable older pages at the back of the queue do not get automatically indexed for Google.

Coordinator

A proposal is taking place here to confirm a nominated user as Coordinator of NPR.

This month's refresher course

Why I Hate Speedy Deleters, a 2008 essay by long since retired Ballonman, is still as valid today. Those of us who patrol large numbers of new pages can be forgiven for making the occasional mistake while others can learn from their 'beginner' errors. Worth reading.

Deletion tags

Do bear in mind that articles in the feed showing the trash can icon (you will need to have 'Nominated for deletion' enabled for this in your filters) may have been tagged by inexperienced or non NPR rights holders using Twinkle. They require your further verification.

Paid editing

Please be sure to look for the tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary. WMF policy requires paid editors to connect to their adverts.

Subject-specific notability guidelines' (SNG). Alternatives to deletion
  • Reviewers are requested to familiarise themselves once more with notability guidelines for organisations and companies.
  • Blank-and-Redirect is a solution anchored in policy. Please consider this alternative before PRODing or CSD. Note however, that users will often revert or usurp redirects to re-create deleted articles. Do regularly patrol the redirects in the feed.
Not English
  • A common issue: Pages not in English or poor, unattributed machine translations should not reside in main space even if they are stubs. Please ensure you are familiar with WP:NPPNE. Check in Google for the language and content, and if they do have potential, tag as required, then move to draft. Modify the text of the template as appropriate before sending it.
Tools

Regular reviewers will appreciate the most recent enhancements to the New Pages Feed and features in the Curation tool, and there are still more to come. Due to the wealth of information now displayed by ORES, reviewers are strongly encouraged to use the system now rather than Twinkle; it will also correctly populate the logs.

Stub sorting, by SD0001: A new script is available for adding/removing stub tags. See User:SD0001/StubSorter.js, It features a simple HotCat-style dynamic search field. Many of the reviewers who are using it are finding it an improvement upon other available tools.

Assessment: The script at User:Evad37/rater makes the addition of Wikiproject templates extremely easy. New page creators rarely do this. Reviewers are not obliged to make these edits but they only take a few seconds. They can use the Curation message system to let the creator know what they have done.

DannyS712 bot III is now patrolling certain categories of uncontroversial redirects. Curious? Check out its patrol log.

Go here to remove your name if you wish to opt-out of future mailings.

Very lengthy links in edit summariesEdit

Please avoid these as they skew the display margins. El_C 14:27, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

El_C What exactly is the harm in that? I have seen you remove them before I do not understand what is so wrong with them. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 14:29, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
I don't know if I can explain this any more clearly. Do you not use a watchlist? El_C 14:30, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
El_C I see the issue on smaller screens. It is strange looking on smaller screens but not unusable. It looks fine on my big screen. BTW, I use Chrome Watchlist. I highly recommend it. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 14:45, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
Same here, on both large screen-size and Chrome watchlist counts. But it messes with width margins nonetheless, so it's probably best to avoid. El_C 14:48, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
FYI, It severely distorts the width on smaller displays, like my ipad. Essentially makes the watchlist unusable. This was because of the protection log on your move of Louis XVIII---- Work permit (talk) 21:24, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. I will try my best to avoid this. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 06:42, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Harald IIIEdit

Re this edit, I think we need to have both Harald and Tostin bold, but the latter's article is full of CN tags. From my reading of the Stamford Bridge article, it seems that both of their deaths were significant to the Vikings being routed. howcheng {chat} 16:39, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Howcheng, agreed. I put it back in inelgible. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 16:15, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

EscanabaEdit

There is no way your page move could be considered not controversial. Please undo it and start an RM.

Thanks. 21:31, 22 September 2019 (UTC) oops John from Idegon (talk) 21:43, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

John from Idegon, done. Is that written out in a policy anywhere? --- Coffeeandcrumbs 21:49, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
I don't think there is an actual policy, more an essay on how move discussions go. WP:COMMACONVENTION? WP:USCITY may speak or link to it, as may WP:PLACENAME John from Idegon (talk) 21:55, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
Ah, here: WP:USPLACE. John from Idegon (talk) 21:58, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
John from Idegon, Thanks. I think it is a bad policy but not worth challenging. I appreciate you coming to me directly. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 22:18, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
If you dig a bit you'll see that has been contentious for a long time, earning at least one editor a topic ban from the subject. The general thought is that having a set system for naming saves argument. To each his own. Thanks. John from Idegon (talk) 01:12, 23 September 2019 (UTC)

John Witherspoon (actor)Edit

@DBigXray:John Witherspoon (actor) is exactly the type of article I like to work on. If you start from the bottom (Filmography), I can start from the top and add sources. We can get this posted I think. It will take a lot of work. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 11:38, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for lending a helping hand. Indeed it is hard for one editor to get it ready in a short time. Your plan sounds good. Also pinging User:Fylindfotberserk to help if he finds it interesting to contribute. --DBigXray 11:44, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
User:Johndavies837, User:Fylindfotberserk And Coffee, What do you guys think about the prospects of this article for ITN/c. Can we make it ? If it is feasible we all can give a final push to add the sources or else move on to other articles. IMHO the filmography might need to be WP:CFORKed into a separate article.--DBigXray 15:21, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
  • User:Johndavies837, User:Fylindfotberserk I went in and enriched the filmography with sources. IMHO the article is in much better shape. lets give it another 12-15 hours for improvement after which unsourced content should be moved to talk page until a reliable source is found for it. --DBigXray 06:56, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

"Fixing" date formats in CS1Edit

I don't know if you're aware that CS1 now renders dates in the format specified by {{use mdy dates}} et al, which means edits like this are largely a waste of your time, system resources, and a bit of file space. They have no effect on the rendered article if it contains {{use mdy dates}}, and few editors care much about how dates are coded in the wikitext. ―Mandruss  04:12, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

Mandruss, thank you. I am aware and only do them along with other edits. Getting them out of the way allows me to see if there are MOS:DATE issues in the prose. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 04:20, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
I see. Thank you. ―Mandruss  04:22, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
I was not aware, and thought I had a genius idea to implement this but decided not to bring it up because I thought it would be too complicated. Glad someone was way ahead of me! Kees08 (Talk) 04:35, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
I wonder if Ohconfucius would consider changing his user script to ignore CS1. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 04:41, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
If they did, how would you get them out of the way allowing you to see if there are MOS:DATE issues in the prose? ―Mandruss  04:44, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
@Mandruss:, I wouldn't need to. When I said get them out of the way, I meant for the next time I run the script. For example, 2019 Hong Kong protests had MOS:DATE issues but they are hard to notice in preview mode because all the CS1 dates are also triggering the script to act. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 04:53, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
It is an issue that I have been contemplating for a few months now. I have not arrived at a conclusion as to modifying the script to ignore |date= within reference sections. I had disabled the regexes following an enquiry, but found on prolonged use that it threw up false negatives in other templates where the |date= is used. Yes, I am aware that it may be seen to be an unconsequential edit when these citation dates are changed (when it has no effect on the rendered output. But for the moment, it seems to be more complicated for me to modify the regexes when compared to the benefits. Furthermore, some editors have expressed puzzlement when they see different date formats used in edit mode, making them think wrongly that the script wasn't working, so I'm inclined to let it run a while longer. Regards, -- Ohc ¡digame! 14:25, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
Ohconfucius, if you ever do modify the regexes, you should also take a look at why it removes "the" from phrases like "the 18 October protest caused....". It is good to change "... on the 15th of October" to "on 15 October" but it should ignore instances when dates are used as modifiers like in the former. It should only be triggered when "the" is followed by 1st, 2nd, 3'rd, 4th, etc. No rush, of course. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 14:48, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for that suggestion. I've been trying to identify differences in strings that ought to change and those that ought to stay the same. Yes, the regex was written to remove archaic ordinal formats such as "... on the 15th of October", and there are indeed false positives. I'll look at the regexes in light of what you propose. -- Ohc ¡digame! 15:46, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

This had been bothering me because I thought I had edited articles that contained both the use mdy dates template and varying dates. I realize now when you edit just a section, without the template, since the template is not there the dates will not be made consistent. It is obvious now that I realize it, but in case anyone else thought they were going crazy... Kees08 (Talk) 06:18, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

In regard to an abella danger edit or deletion I think you did.Edit

I think you edited out my references to Elite Daily and International Business Times, or not? I highlighted those two news articles since they are somewhat prominent news organizations. To give her credibility in the beginning. Although I understand why it may not be needed now, I'm not sure why it would be deleted? thank you.Scenicview1 (talk) 20:18, 19 October 2019 (UTC)Scenicview1

@Scenicview1: that was not me. What you are referring to was done in this edit. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 20:22, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Hey, sorry, my perfectionism got to me, and I redid Alt 1 a bit, because that giant hat really seemed to need a bit more visual-counterbalance at the bottom of the picture. I'm sorry for doing this late in voting, I just wanted to make sure that the image promoted is the best I can do, and the new crop, I think, is way better.

New Page Review newsletter November 2019Edit

Hello Coffeeandcrumbs,

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 725 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.

Photo Removal Saugus High School shootingEdit

[[File:Saugus_High_School_Shooting_Location.png|thumb|right]] The above photo was removed as per WP:BRD based on a claim it is not fair use because a free image is available.

The photo is a picture of the event which is the subject of the article in question. Contexual significance? It depicts an active crime scene which is central to the subject of the article and not just a photo of a building. Free equivalent available? Not without a time machine. The photo clearly states that is depicts abandoned backpacks and is an active crime scene. The photo even states what it contains. So I object to the claim it is not fair use. Show me a free equivalent of the active crime scene I can upload and use if there is a free replacement.

Can you please nominate the image at Files for discussion if you really don't think it's fair use so other editors can review it and make a determination whether this is legit fair use or not. Stating its not fair use in a terse edit summary indicates that the image be reviewed through that process, and if it's not fair use, delete it. Thanks.
