ARC requestEdit

Ealdgyth - you are a middle ground here. Could you please look into examples 1-6, by Poeticbent/sock, in the ARC case:

  1. Loosmark sock (+Poeticbent), IcewhizFix - Describing a Polish pogrom against Jews,[1][2] as Jewish oppression of Poles followed by Germans killing Jews - see AE determining this was a hoax. Note VM loudly asserted restoring this was non-actionable. Also see: Dr. Morris S. Whitcup on Wikipedia's articles
  2. Poeticbent+Loosmark sock, IceWhizFix - Local poles burn 600-2000 Jews alive in barn,[1][3] described as Jewish oppression of Poles followed by Germans killing Jews.
  3. Poeticbent,Loosmark sock,Poeticbent,IceWhizFix: related to 1+2, obfuscation of local killings+explusion+Jedwabne.[1][4]
  4. Poeticbent,IceWhizFix - extermination camp for Jews,[5] described as "intended to kill Jews and Poles from all nearby towns and villages" (Polish citation in article: "Jews".[6])
  5. PoeticbentBiałystok,PoeticbentHistoryOfTheJews,PoeticbentCommons - IceWhizFixBiałystok,IceWhizFixHistoryOfTheJews,IceWhizFixCommons - "Jewish welcoming banner" in 1939 image captions (extended discussion, caption offwiki) - actually election notice to the People's Council of Western Belarus in 1941
  6. Loosmark sock,IceWhizFix - describes the "Polish operation" (one of multiple NKVD national sweeps) as "the genocide of Poles in the Soviet Union", misstating named historians[7] and using a dubious source. Contrast academic sources:[8][9][10].

In particular 1-5. I can e-mail you the refs that are not online. For all the acrimony in the topic area - much of the content that is being "fought over" has been generated by Poeticbent/Loosmark. It shouldn't be hard for you to verify here (both off my references, and off others - e.g. Intimate Violence: Anti-Jewish Pogroms on the Eve of the Holocaust (Kopstein & Wittenberg) is recent work here, and older works on the towns in Łomża County with pogroms before/after Jedwabne are widely available (following Gross(2000) - this is well written (and was covered previously - e.g. Radziłów was better known than Jedwabne prior to Gross)). For all the discussion here on conduct, what really matters in content (in particular when it rises to this level). Knee-jerk responses in ANI (which is not suited for a topic that requires more than 2-3 of an editor's attention span to evaluated) are just going to be one big free for all.

I really wasn't kidding when I said I am busy. We are moving from Central Illinois to Central Wisconsin - with a library of over 10,000 books, a large amount of stuff we sell online, a number of hobbies, plus 8 cats, a dog, and 7 horses and all the equipment that THOSE take. And we're moving ourselves, not hiring it done. And I've still got work for various places that I do freelance. I really really don't have the time to dig into things quickly. Go ahead and send the pdfs, but I cannot promise anything quickly. Ealdgyth - Talk 16:06, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
Wow - I'm terrified at my move at the end of the year, and it isn't nearly as far nor close to as much kit - and I'll probably have help. I guess you can literally mean it when you say it rains cats and dogs (and horses). Bounced the mail over. I didn't send the stuff that is available online freely (hyperlinked in the refs) or the USHMM encyclopedia that I assume you have (and is too big for e-mail, I think).

Eek! Best of luck with that! Johnbod (talk) 16:31, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

Administrators' newsletter – June 2019Edit

  Guideline and policy news

  • An RfC seeks to clarify whether WP:OUTING should include information on just the English Wikipedia or any Wikimedia project.
  • An RfC on WT:RfA concluded that Requests for adminship and bureaucratship are discussions seeking to build consensus.
  • An RfC proposal to make the templates for discussion (TfD) process more like the requested moves (RM) process, i.e. "as a clearinghouse of template discussions", was closed as successful.

  Technical news

  • The CSD feature of Twinkle now allows admins to notify page creators of deletion if the page had not been tagged. The default behavior matches that of tagging notifications, and replaces the ability to open the user talk page upon deletion. You can customize which criteria receive notifications in your Twinkle preferences: look for Notify page creator when deleting under these criteria.
  • Twinkle's d-batch (batch delete) feature now supports deleting subpages (and related redirects and talk pages) of each page. The pages will be listed first but use with caution! The und-batch (batch undelete) option can now also restore talk pages.

Editor of the WeekEdit

  Editor of the Week
Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week in recognition of your creation of excellent content. Thank you for the great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)

User:Gog the Mild submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week:

I nominate Ealdgyth for Editor of the Week. They are a content creator par excellence, with 62 FAs and 109 GAs to their name. And 100 DYKs, 2 FLs, a FT and more Four and Million Awards than I could count. And has reviewed 220 GANs. They have made over 125,000 edits. They are an administrator. They are very active on WikiProject Good articles - maintaining the mechanism which allows the GAN process to work. "Wow!" you say, and well you might. But that is all by the bye. The actual reason I think they are worthy of being editor of the week is the work they do to ensure that a worthy and appropriate Featured Article of the Day (TFA) appears each and every day on the main page. The main page is Wikipedia's shop window, and the first thing a browser sees is the TFA. Placed there by Ealdgyth. They sort out a balanced set of articles, bearing in mind special dates (1 April, 25 December) and requests for articles to appear on certain dates (subject's birthdays etc). They check them for quality. They physically fit them into the schedule. They check the blurb (the bit that actually appears on the front page) for quality and length. They deal with queries. Two to three full days of work each month. Knowing that 20 million people will be viewing any error. And all of this for literally no thanks at all. Possibly the most under-rated editor on Wikipedia. This nomination was seconded by 7&6=thirteen with the comment, "Good work consistently done without fanfare" and by User:Adityavagarwal who praised Ealdgyth as "One of the most prolific editor on Wikipedia!"

You can copy the following text to your user page to display a user box proclaiming your selection as Editor of the Week:

Thanks again for your efforts! I also live in Central Illinois near Varna. ―Buster7  13:13, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
