Prep 7Edit

Hi Danny, just saw your new prep set. Some observations:

  1. I can't say that the lead hook is so hooky. Even if a nomination has a nice image, the hook also has to be good. You could have either asked the nominator for a better hook, or run it in a non-image slot.
  2. There are 3 sports hooks in the set. You also have 3 "first" hooks in a row. It's important to vary both the subject matter and the hook wording as you build a set.

Best, Yoninah (talk) 12:03, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

@Yoninah: Thanks for the feedback. I tried to reorder the hooks so that I wouldn't have multiple US or bio hooks next to each other (which was made harder by the fact that William Jefferson Hardin is both). I'll give it another look with fresh eyes and see if I can improve it. Thanks for the feedback DannyS712 (talk) 12:16, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
It takes a lot of time to search for hooks to make the right balance. Feel free to move out hooks into Prep 6. I could replace them later. Yoninah (talk) 12:26, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
Danny, since you hadn't gotten to it yet, I moved a few of the hooks into Prep 6. Did you notice that you promoted 3 nominations by The Squirrel Conspiracy? Unless it's a special occasion when we run a lot of the same type of hooks (like Christmas Day or the World Cup), we try to run only one nomination per editor in a set. Homo ergaster will have to be moved to a different set. One of the 2 remaining sports hooks also has to be moved out. Yoninah (talk) 20:22, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
@Yoninah: didn't realize that - thanks for pointing it out. Sorry I didn't get to it DannyS712 (talk) 20:46, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
I wish that this is something that could be reconsidered (not in this specific case, but in general for the future). It's one thing to limit the number of articles per set that were written by me, but the articles in question were all other people's work that I nominated in an effort to get more diversity in topic and especially region into DYK. The Squirrel Conspiracy (talk) 21:29, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
Also, @Yoninah: I've restored Mexican National Cruiserweight Championship back to an image hook. I disagree with your assessment that it's not interesting, and the picture itself is striking. The Squirrel Conspiracy (talk) 22:09, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
@The Squirrel Conspiracy: no one is trying to put a damper on diversity. We're running two sets a day with 8 hooks each; there's plenty of time to promote each of your hooks in turn. Yoninah (talk) 22:21, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
@Yoninah: I didn't mean to imply that you were trying to put a damper on diversity; I don't think you're trying to do that. My point was that the articles I was nominating were entirely other people's work, and that with the subjects and regions essentially random (meaning that concerns about too many hooks on a specific topic doesn't apply), I'm not sure why the restriction is in place. If they had self-nominated, there would be no problem running all three of those in a set. Was this put in place to prevent a flood of nominations? To prevent gaming at the WikiCup? I'm just trying to make it easier for people to build balanced sets. The Squirrel Conspiracy (talk) 22:30, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
@The Squirrel Conspiracy: I'm not sure why we have this "unwritten rule"; perhaps BlueMoonset could explain it better. Yoninah (talk) 22:35, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
The Squirrel Conspiracy, Yoninah, I was taught (eight years back) that individual nominators (covering self-noms and noms of others) should be limited within a single set. One slot was sufficient; if it was hard to balance a set because of a limited number of approved noms, then it could be two. When there is more than one set per day, it's easy to spread things out. In my own thinking, since a nominator is "curating" when nominating articles by others, I believe there should be a limit as to how much they affect a single set in terms of their nominations: one is better, two would be stretching it, and three or more just shouldn't be done. You're welcome to take this to the WT:DYK page to get other opinions, of course, but I don't see the advantage to or need for that kind of bunching up. BlueMoonset (talk) 23:27, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Hook interestEdit

Danny and The Squirrel Conspiracy, now that it looks like we're among the few editors building prep sets, I'd just like to comment on what has been my approach over the last 10 years. If you really think a hook is interesting, watchlist it and see how many hits it gets. You will find that our readership—primarily young, male, twenties—go for war hooks, sports hooks, suicides, and shocking facts. Clever hook wording can also move a hook to the top of the pageview statistics. Run-of-the-mill hooks like * ... that Arlington State College left the Texas A&M University System after 48 years to join the University of Texas System? won't even reach 1,000 pageviews in a 12-hour period. In the interests of the project, I have always taken extra time to ask nominators to improve weak hooks so we can present the best product on the main page. We have had enough calls for discontinuation of the DYK column as being fluff and trivial, though in actuality it serves an important purpose of showcasing new articles and encouraging new editors to create pages. I hope that you, too, will look at prep building as a mission to present a great product. Thank you, Yoninah (talk) 23:14, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

@Yoninah: Thanks for the suggestions DannyS712 (talk) 23:16, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

SidebarEdit

Hi Danny! I just wanted to check whether you plan to weigh in at Wikipedia talk:Requests for comment/2020 left sidebar update#Moving forward from here. I think we'll be ready to start the follow-up discussion soon, but as one of the two closers, you should be able to have a say in affirming which items are included in it if you want to. Cheers, {{u|Sdkb}}talk 22:26, 11 June 2020 (UTC)

@Sdkb: Speaking not as part of the close, I agree with Barkeep49 that the number of topics in a follow-up should be limited. I stand by the recommendation that the introduction to contributing page, and the "Special pages" link location, should be discussed further (along with the community portal link, though there doesn't seem to have been discussion regarding that on the talk page) DannyS712 (talk) 22:31, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
DannyS712, thanks for the quick reply. The current path we're on is that the "Special pages" link location will not be discussed further, since that was closed as consensus for it to be in the contributetools section, not as no consensus. If your reading of the consensus is that it is unclear and warrants further discussion, I'd appreciate if you could bring that up at the talk page. - {{u|Sdkb}}talk 22:36, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
@Sdkb: My apologies - I was remembering wrong. Yes, special pages should be under contributing DannyS712 (talk) 22:38, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
Oops, I misspoke above. I meant to say tools section, not contributing section. So it seems there are some different readings of that consensus? The discussion I had so far is at the "Where to put the "Special pages" link" bullet. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 22:47, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
@Sdkb: nope - just been a long day. Yes, it wasn't something we thought needed more discussion; we agreed that it should go under tools, not the proposed contribute DannyS712 (talk) 22:50, 11 June 2020 (UTC)
I relate to the long day feeling haha. Thanks for the clarification! {{u|Sdkb}}talk 22:55, 11 June 2020 (UTC)

This week's article for improvement (week 26, 2020)Edit

 

William Mariner was an Englishman who lived in Tonga from 29 November 1806 to (probably) 8 November 1810. He later published Tonga Islands, an account of his experiences that is now one of the major sources of information on Tonga before it was significantly influenced by European culture and Christianity. Pictured is Mariner in Tongan attire.

Speedy deletion of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft_talk:Ruan_GaldinoEdit

Please can you help me. I see you want to delete the article related to Galdino because it is a redirect from the article namespace to a different namespace except the Category, Template, Wikipedia, Help, or Portal namespaces. I did this accidentally and could use your help to fix this issue without deleting the article. I would appreciateDanceEnthusiast (talk) 18:19, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Is the deletion meant for the draft or for the links? I think i created ioncorrect links when I moved the draft around. Please can you ecplain what this deletion will do? Thank youDanceEnthusiast (talk) 18:33, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
@DanceEnthusiast the deletions are for the links from the moves, not for the draft itself DannyS712 (talk) 18:42, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
How do I prevent from making these moving link 'errors' in the future? How should I be saving my drafts? Apologies I wrote on the speedy deletion a reason for non deleting. I mistakenly thought the deletion was meant for the draft but I am sure the person reading the request will understand this and be able to delete the links without deleting the draft. Thank youDanceEnthusiast (talk) 18:48, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
They aren't errors, its just redirects left behind - if the redirect should be deleted (eg from article space to draft space) just tag the redirect for deletion yourself DannyS712 (talk) 18:53, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for the answer. I will remember to tag redirects for deletion myself if it happens again.DanceEnthusiast (talk) 17:43, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

I've looked up Json format a bit per User talk:DannyS712/Archive 9#Civil parish bot and doesn't the instructions at User:Crouch, Swale/Bot tasks/Civil parishes (current)/Simple and User:Crouch, Swale/Bot tasks/Civil parishes (current)/Coded provide enough instructions for this? Maybe I should ask at the bot noticeboard since I don't have the technical understanding to code this. Crouch, Swale (talk) 20:20, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

No, it doesn't - I'm not going to get and combine all of the data myself. If it can be provided in json format, I'll consider looking into this more, but otherwise tis not a priority, sorry DannyS712 (talk) 20:23, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

WikiCup 2020 July newsletterEdit

The third round of the 2020 WikiCup has now come to an end. The 16 users who made it into the fourth round each had at least 353 points (compared to 68 in 2019). It was a highly competitive round, and a number of contestants were eliminated who would have moved on in earlier years. Our top scorers in round 3 were:

  •   Epicgenius, with one featured article, 28 good articles and 17 DYKs, amassing 1836 points
  •   The Rambling Man , with 1672 points gained from four featured articles and seventeen good articles, plus reviews of a large number of FACs and GAs
  •   Gog the Mild, a first time contestant, with 1540 points, a tally built largely on 4 featured articles and related bonus points.

Between them, contestants managed 14 featured articles, 9 featured lists, 3 featured pictures, 152 good articles, 136 DYK entries, 55 ITN entries, 65 featured article candidate reviews and 221 good article reviews. Additionally,   MPJ-DK added 3 items to featured topics and 44 to good topics. Over the course of the competition, contestants have completed 710 good article reviews, in comparison to 387 good articles submitted for review and promoted. These large numbers are probably linked to a GAN backlog drive in April and May, and the changed patterns of editing during the COVID-19 pandemic. As we enter the fourth round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 3 but before the start of round 4 can be claimed in round 4. Please also remember that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them. When doing GARs, please make sure that you check that all the GA criteria are fully met. Please also remember that all submissions must meet core Wikipedia policies, regardless of the review process.

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! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove your name from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

ParenthesesEdit

I have no idea why you are making edits like this one, but they have no effect on the appearance of the article from the reader end, and they make it very slightly harder to see what's going on in an equation at the editor end. Please stop. --JBL (talk) 22:33, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Chafin v. Chafin you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria.   This process may take up to 7 days.

The article Chafin v. Chafin you nominated as a good article has passed  ; see Talk:Chafin v. Chafin for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already appeared on the main page as a "Did you know" item, or as a bold link under "In the News" or in the "On This Day" prose section, you can nominate it within the next seven days to appear in DYK. Bolded names with dates listed at the bottom of the "On This Day" column do not affect DYK eligibility.

Bot approves self-redirectsEdit

I was surprised that there is now a bot approving redirects and I tried to figure out what causes the bot to do so. In that process I realized that I made a self-redirect by accident. Technically such a self-redirect fits the tasks of the bot, but I guess these shouldn't be approved automatically. --mfb (talk) 11:41, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

Hmm, will try to figure that one out - its unlikely to come up, and left redirects are patrolled and fixed, but makes sense to skip them. Thanks for letting me know DannyS712 (talk) 11:43, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

FYIEdit

Hi Danny, I noticed your RemindMe script and was wondering if you were aware of the (far too useful for it to be this obscure) W-ping script, which does the same thing without making the notifications being public or adding more revisions to the database. Is that a design that you would consider as an update, or would you be willing to also link to the W-ping script on your page as a "see also"? Best, Kevin (alt of L235 · t · c) 19:41, 5 July 2020 (UTC)

W-ping is good, but it has a few disadvantages compared to the bot (as well as the advantages you mentioned) - the bot edits on your user talk page can trigger emails, and show up using my global watchlist script when viewing from other wikis. DannyS712 (talk) 19:45, 5 July 2020 (UTC)

Enslin (entomologist)Edit

I wrote this article which relates to a very notable entomologist as a stub. It was redirected (almost immediately) before completion. I explained this to whoever made the move suggesting a better title would be Eduard Enslin as in the authority controlled German language version. Also I worked on the draft adding a sentence or two and completing the references one of which is a very complete pdf with a full bibliography. So far with no response.Notafly (talk) 16:03, 7 July 2020 (UTC) PS It is not a draft but a referenced article in my subject area. I am sure this will be resolved once the text is properly considered. I can easily add the page again under Eduard Enslin from my saved draft. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Notafly (talkcontribs) 16:19, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

I'm not sure why you're telling me this? --DannyS712 (talk) 19:00, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Sorry I am very confused myself.Did you send me a speedy deletion message perhaps? This all arose from a redirect which I cannot fathom and the author of that is not responding.All I need is a decision to delete the draft he invented.Notafly (talk) 20:36, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I sent a speedy deletion message about the redirect --DannyS712 (talk) 02:47, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

Concerning the Al Cannon pageEdit

Hi DannyS712, just checking in to ask if you received any financial compensation for your edits to Al Cannon, the original editor Knapp84 was paid to make the page as seen here https://apps.sc.gov/PublicReporting/Expenditures/Candidate/ExpCountyFilerResult.aspx

Knapp has now revealed conflict of interest on their talk page. I am here to simply ask you if you also have a conflict, this is not meant to come with any accusatory tone, just pure fact checking. Thank you for your time JTW1998+ (talk) 20:02, 09 July 2020 (UTC)

@JTW1998+ thanks for checking. No, I did not receive any compensation DannyS712 (talk) 21:29, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
