Urgent DYK promotionEdit

Hi Cwmhiraeth, I wouldn't normally ask this but things have stalled to the point where this has become urgent. Template:Did you know nominations/Christ Is Risen! Christ Is Risen! is being held for Easter but hasn't been promoted. The main sticking point is about the image (though the prep did save the image spot for this I assume) but it has approved hooks with and without it. I don't want to be a bother but can I ask if you would be able to promote it to the Easter prep please? The C of E God Save the Queen! (talk) 09:05, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Perhaps find someone who has edited after 16 April. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:24, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
Let's see. Yoninah celebrating Passover, Maile approved a hook ... Amakuru, perhaps? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:39, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
@The C of E: I have promoted it, with the image, which seems appropriate to me. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 12:42, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. The C of E God Save the Queen! (talk) 13:04, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
I just want to make sure that you read this. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:12, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
I had read it. It seems to me that, as Easter is a special day in the Christian calendar, it is reasonable to include the image. At other times of year, we can have similar slots for other faiths if people wish to nominate suitable articles and request the dates. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 13:37, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
I am normally all for IAR, but don't see why - only because it's Easter - we should ignore the basic guideline how to illustrate a song. This has nothing to do with religion. I removed a crucifixion image from Die sieben Worte Jesu Christi am Kreuz, as not really to the composition, only its topic. My last word on the topic, but I'd not be surprised if we'd get another round at ERRORS. - Happy Easter. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:34, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Impacted wisdom teethEdit

Dear Cwmhiraeth. In 2014 you did an GA1 review of Impacted wisdom teeth but I was on an extended Wikibreak. I've leaned back in for some other projects, and realized that I'd never followed through on your recommendations. I've made the corrections, and will be renominating the article for GA. I thought I'd let you know, in case you have the motivation to take another look. Thanks again for the work on the initial review, and I apologise for letting your efforts wait 5 years before acting on them. Best. Ian Furst (talk) 14:11, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

The Signpost: 30 April 2019Edit

I took an interest in ticksEdit

Because I was camping recently, and when the sun came out, it got hot, so I opened the tent door, and I saw some creature enter. It was just hanging onto the interior of the tent flap, and waving its antennae at me. I was like, "Is that a tick?!" Yup, it was a tick, and those weren't antennae; they were its front legs. It was probably trying to use its Haller's organ to find me.

I tried to knock it to the tent floor without touching it, and it ended up falling into a pile of camping supplies and vanishing. I couldn't find it. I threw all my camping supplies out of the tent and went through them and still couldn't find the tick. So I actually cut short my camping trip and went home to sleep in my bed rather than stay in that tent with that tick possibly ready to come out of hiding after I fell asleep.

I started reading up, and I realized, it was no accident that the tick showed up; it probably sensed my carbon dioxide, maybe vibrations from my movements, and other host cues and approached for that reason. I hadn't realized they had all those capabilities. Then I thought, "Well, maybe if I stay away awhile and come back, the tick will be dead by then," but nope, they can live for weeks or months just waiting.

So, maybe I need to throw that whole tent into a bonfire and get a new one, and next time I'm taking a slew of different precautions, like putting down some double-sided carpet tape, or some Tangle-Trap sticky coating, around the whole perimeter of the tent area, so that any ticks that crawl up will hopefully get stuck there. Yeah, I could use permethrin, I know, but I didn't really prepare adequately; I figured ticks mostly just hung out in the weeds rather than crawling right up onto and into tents. (When I came back to the tent, there were more ticks crawling on it, and especially hanging onto the tent flap, right near the zipper, presumably to try to ambush me; there must be some really strong cues that let them know I enter and leave by that area, so that's where they can find me.)

I also realize now, it was a mistake to pitch the tent in an area where water collects whenever it rains, and where there's a lot of brush nearby, and where there are signs of wildlife (rabbits, woodchucks, etc.) living in the area; it's kinda like ringing the dinner bell.

Anyway, fascinating creatures. Зенитная Самоходная Установка (talk) 20:21, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

Interesting! You don't say what country you were camping in but I can see that you have been quite put off camping in wild areas, which is a pity. Here in the UK I do not encounter ticks often and when I do, it is generally on the dog. Regards, Cwmhiraeth (talk) 05:12, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, I was camping in a wasteland area of Virginia where there's a lot of blackjack (high clay content) soil that lacks permeability, resulting in a lot of standing water. If you look at the photo here next to the caption that says, "BlackJack soils formed from diabase bedrock do not allow water to pass easily" that's pretty much what my campsite looked like. Tick heaven, when there's been some rainfall, because there's a lot of brush, plus puddles where water has collected and not been able to run off anywhere. But if it weren't tick season, it would probably be mosquito season, or else winter.
I wanted to go someplace like Colorado that's a bit nicer but wasn't able to make the arrangements with my sister, who lives there, so ended up just going into the wilderness where I lived. Now I see why people pay money to go to real campsites where they've given you an environment that's been cleared of stuff that would tend to support pests, and has good drainage, etc.
Well, I see my edits to tick got reverted because I copied a little too liberally from some journals, but my takeaway from my research is that for an animal that's so small, ticks are hardy, well-adapted to their niche, and highly sophisticated (e.g. having all those drugs in their saliva to overcome host defenses). They're also dangerous, because they're carrying so many diseases these days. I think in this area, we pretty much all know someone who's suffered a life-changing tick bite. Зенитная Самоходная Установка (talk) 13:35, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
I saw the information that you had added to the Tick article which was deleted. I suggest you try again, using your own words as far as possible. I reckon you find ticks, not just in the sort of location you have described, but also anywhere they have dropped off a previous host and are ready for their next meal.

WikiCup 2019 May newsletterEdit

The second round of the 2019 WikiCup has now finished. Contestants needed to scored 32 points to advance into round 3. Our top four scorers in round 2 all scored over 400 points and were:

  •   Cas Liber (1210), our winner in 2016, with two featured articles and three DYKs. He also made good use of the bonus points available, more than doubling his score by choosing appropriate articles to work on.
  •   Kosack (750), last year's runner up, with an FA, a GA, two FLs, and five DYKs.
  •   Adam Cuerden (480), a WikiCup veteran, with 16 featured pictures, mostly restorations.
  •   Zwerg Nase (461), a seasoned competitor, with a FA, a GA and an ITN item.

Other notable performances were put in by   Barkeep49 with six GAs,   Ceranthor,   Lee Vilenski, and   Canada Hky, each with seven GARs, and   MPJ-DK with a seven item GT.

So far contestants have achieved nine featured articles between them and a splendid 80 good articles. Commendably, 227 GARs have been completed during the course of the 2019 WikiCup, so the backlog of articles awaiting GA review has been reduced as a result of contestants' activities. The judges are pleased with the thorough GARs that are being performed, and have hardly had to reject any. As we enter the third round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 2 but before the start of round 3 can be claimed in round 3. Remember too that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article nominations, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Kardaki Temple DYK requestEdit

Hi Cwmhiraeth. I would like to request a last-minute small change to the hook. The current hook is: "... that Kardaki Temple is considered to be the only Greek temple of Doric..." Could you possibly add "in Corfu", after "Kardaki Temple", so that it reads: "... that Kardaki Temple in Corfu is considered to be the only Greek temple of Doric..." Thank you. Dr. K. 01:59, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

@Dr.K.: The hook is currently in Queue 6 where only administrators can make alterations. Looking at the article, it does not mention Corfu when making the claim about the absence of a frieze. If you think the claim should be modified in the hook, change the facts in the article, and then post on the DYK discussion page where an administrator will see your request for changing the hook. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 05:21, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
Hi Cwmhiraeth. The temple is in Corfu. It is written at the lead. I will ask an admin. Thank you. Dr. K. 05:23, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
@Dr.K.: Not so. The statement "It is considered to be the only Greek temple of Doric architecture that does not have a frieze." does not mention Corfu. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 05:26, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
Kardaki Temple is in Corfu. So if we add Kardaki Temple, in Corfu blah blah etc. instead of just Kardaki Temple blah etc. is uncontroversial. I just want to specify Kardaki Temple's location on Earth which is Corfu. Dr. K. 05:30, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
I see what you mean. Man, that's a conundrum. Let me see what I can do to fix this. Thanks and sorry. Dr. K. 05:33, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.18Edit

Hello Cwmhiraeth,

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.
