You are now a ReviewerEdit

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 04:56, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Your request for rollbackEdit

Hi Hughesdarren. After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! Beeblebrox (talk) 19:23, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

New page reviewer grantedEdit

Hi Hughesdarren. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group. Minor user rights can now be accorded on a time limited or probationary period, so do check back at WP:PERM/NPR in case this concerns your application. This user group allows you to review new pages through the Curation system and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or nominate them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is vital to maintaining the integrity of the encylopedia. If you have not already done so, you must read the tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the deletion policy. If you need any help or want to discuss the process, you are welcome to use the new page reviewer talk page. In addition, please remember:

  • Be nice to new editors. They are usually not aware that they are doing anything wrong. Do make use of the message feature when tagging pages for maintenance. so that they are aware.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted. Please be formal and polite in your approach to them – even if they are not.
  • If you are not sure what to do with a page, don't review it – just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Accuracy is more important than speed. Take your time to patrol each page. Use the message feature to communicate with article creators and offer advice as much as possible.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you also may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In cases of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, or long-term inactivity, the right may be withdrawn at administrator discretion. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 15:49, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

Talk:The AustralianEdit

That is very strange, I don't remember reverting your comment at all, that must have been somehow accidental. I would have no reason to do that especially since I agree with that comment. My apologies. Onetwothreeip (talk) 06:40, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

No worries, I figured it was an accident. Cheers Hughesdarren (talk) 06:48, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

was gonna send you long emailEdit

save you the agony, I have just got out of hospital and in post op disorientation and post anasthesia muddy head, I know I have a photo but is stuffed into images on older computers not yet gleaned - I had piccies from 30 years + :( where they might be is another... in the fullness of time - sorry... ie not in the short term JarrahTree 09:35, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Jeez, hope you're OK...put your feet up for a while won't you? Thought I'd ask no hurry of course. We have been visiting the lakes that are not too far from Albany Highway during all of our Xmas driving but Yealering well off the radar. Get well soon! Hughesdarren (talk) 09:42, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
fine, fine - no big deal - yealearing important to me as it is basically the headwater of the whole avon swan basin area - and the southern side of the complexity of the hidden former river drainage systems of the region - huge literature - and not much in the wikipedia range of articles relative to it - wheatbelt nrm have a huge library of obscure and low print reports and texts that I saw in northam a year or so ago, havent had time or resources to get back to look at them JarrahTree 09:49, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
arrgghhhh - yenyenning is what i am thinking of in this response - wrong place (thats what post op disorientation is all about :) - as for yealering - I had done the railway yard in 2013 or so when i was following the last rake of narrow gauge wheat wagons from merredin to northam west - and I think I have picnic area shots from the western and north western side - again on the to be recovered data from dead laptop - phew JarrahTree 10:07, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Goodo, let me know how it goes... Cheers Hughesdarren (talk) 12:58, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
hmm your recent edit gives me the beegees - have I confused the two in more than one way? oh dear JarrahTree 23:52, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
You were right the first time, Lake Yealering is the headwaters of the Avon and you have definitely taken photos of the CBH bins and railway at the town of Yealering (or you uploaded them to commons). Hughesdarren (talk) 01:21, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Atheism in Turkey PRODEdit

I initially created this page as a redirect before an IP changed it into an article. I agree that a separate article is not warranted but a PROD nomination isn't necessary in this case. Thanks, feminist (talk) 08:20, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

No worries, I was always happy with the redirect but the IP contributions were so poorly written and unsourced that they had to go. Appreciate the fix and the heads up. Hughesdarren (talk) 08:30, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Coffee IslandEdit

I have failed twice now to find the sort of coverage that would indicate Coffee Island satisfies WP:NCORP. Can I ask what you found so as to mark them reviewed? Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 15:39, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Barkeep49, True, the references in the article were limited but I had checked against the other articles in the Coffeehouses of Greece and Flocafé had the type of content and few references while Coffee Island had more stores and a shorter history. While the lack of sources included in the article was still a problem other coverage that was found on a quick search: [1], [2] and [3], which I thought could also be included (which is on my to do list for today). Do you think that is enough? Regards Hughesdarren (talk) 23:09, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
Additional sources now added, and I hope the issues with WP:NCORP are now resolved but would appreciate your feedback. I hadn't looked at the article history until now and take you point that Isle aux Herbes would be more likely to be what a reader is searching for. Have put a header on the Coffee Island coffee chain article but think renaming it to Coffee Island (coffee chain) or Coffee Island (company) would probably be better. What do you think? Regards Hughesdarren (talk) 00:11, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
We're obviously operating under NCORP's standard of multiple reliable independent secondary sources offering significant coverage. My looking into this revealed similar things to do you, though my ability to look into this company in Greek has been VERY limited. As for the current sourcing (which I believe to be among the best possible go at sources in English) the greeknewsagenda appears to have government backing behind it, suggesting that it MIGHT be RS. It's really hard to tell if that is genuine work on their part or a form of churnalism, however. The next two sources are corporate and those clearly fail multiple aspects of the five part test. Human Asset did consulting work for Coffee Island, this is their writing up their success story, and thus fails independent and likely reliable. Next source is again about franchising. Action Global Communications Group is a press release. The Cyprus Mail articles appear, from my examination, to be the most promising idea. Is the 7th largest coffee chain in Europe large enough to presume notability? Gosh I don't know and this seems borderline on the merits. What tipped it over into "restoring redirect" for me is that the editor doing the work has not edited any other area which raises a red flag. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 00:26, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
Hi Barkeep49, I had the same limitations in that I can't read or speak Greek either...The sources would, as you say, not pass all aspects of the five part test but together well maybe...Borderline true, but mostly because we are trying to do an English article on a Greek company. Jeez, and don't get me started on single issue editors. Either way I'm not emotionally attached to the article in any way so if anyone unreviews it then no problems with me and no hard feelings. Anyways, keep up the good work and nice to meet you. Hughesdarren (talk) 00:57, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi HughesdarrenEdit

Hello sir nice to meet you, my name is Ben2719941, have I make a mistake on The Essential Kinks, can you please show me where I made the mistake? Thanks Ben2719941. P.S. I'm not at home I'm going to movies today. I will be at my home later. I will fix the mistake when I get home. Thanks for letting me know. I hope you have a nice day sir.

Hi User:Ben2719941, nice to meet you to sir, the message I left you is about the strongly promotional tone of the article. For example the phrase Legacy Recordings’ Essential series, which has not only compiled some of the finest career-spanning retrospectives is send as promotional whereas Legacy Recordings’ Essential series, which has not only compiled some career-spanning retrospectives is neutral. Another would be A fine example of this is the recently-issued, two-disc set, The Essential Kinks is promotional whereas An example of this is the recently-issued, two-disc set, The Essential Kinks is neutral. You don't have to remove the entire sentence just reword the text so it has a more neutral tone. I notice you had already removed the other sentence that was strongly promotional. You may want to read WP:NPOV if you want additional information. The other note made was the need for additional references which are reliable and independent such as from a newspaper or reputable website that is not connected to the label or artist. You can read WP:REF for more information. Enjoy the rest of your day and I'll keep an eye out for any changes you make. Regards Hughesdarren (talk) 03:53, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

Good afternoon Hughesdarren, I'm back at home now I have the fix the mistake so how do I went at it? Please let me know. Thanks Ben2719941 Ben2719941 (talk) 4:21, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi User:Ben2719941, the tone is now neutral which is an improvement but you will still to provide additional references which are reliable and independent such as from a newspaper or reputable website that is not connected to the label or artist. You can read WP:REF and WP:NOTABILITY for more information. When you do edit please don't remove templates placed at the top of the article unless you are sure the problems have been addressed. Regards. Hughesdarren (talk) 07:24, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

Hey, can I please have some help with The Essential Kinks? Thanks Ben2719941 Ben2719941 (talk) 6:49, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

OK, I'm just adding some references now and doing a bit of a tidy up. Hughesdarren (talk) 07:59, 28 January 2019 (UTC) Thanks for that, is it ready to get rid of the issues template or not yet? Please let me know, when you can. Thanks Ben2719941 Ben2719941 (talk) 7:01, 28 January 2019 (UTC)
I will remove the copy editting part when I'm finished but will leave the sources part until there is enough to pas WP:GNG. I'll be on the article for the next half hour or so. Regards Hughesdarren (talk) 08:05, 28 January 2019 (UTC)
Hi User:Ben2719941, I'm finished now and removed the templates at the top of the article I placed there earlier. Note that the reason that article now passes WP:GNG is from the Wall Street Journal and Variety references that I included. For any future articles you write these are the type of independent reliable sources you should seek. It appears that User:Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars is now editing the article. Regards Hughesdarren (talk) 09:14, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks Ben2719941 Ben2719941 (talk) 8:26, 28 January 2019 (UTC) Good Afternoon Hughesdarren, Are you allowed to add The Essential Adam Ant? Thanks Ben2719941 Ben2719941 (talk) 9:04, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

Yes, we can all edit any article. The Adam Ant one is now a redirect and the main reason is that the article had no reliable independent references (like the ones I spoke of above) so it fails WP:GNG. Bear in mind, in my opinion, the The Essential Kinks article only just scrapes through. A quick google search revealed nothing much better so the Essential Adam Ant article will have to stay as a redirect unless it gets a few newspaper or magazine article associated with it. Regards Hughesdarren (talk) 10:57, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

Good Afternoon, Hughesdarren, Which sources are allowed for The Essential albums? Is Last FM, iTunes, Spotify or other sources like other sites are allowed on Wikipedia? Thanks Ben2719941 Ben2719941 (talk) 10:51, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Ben2719941, Yes they are allowed but do not make the subject notable. You need reliable and independent sources to confer notablity as per WP:GNG. As I said above, you need references from newspapers or magazines to do this otherwise the article will not accepted. Regards. Hughesdarren (talk) 12:02, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

ExtrapolarisEdit

You're wasting your breath with this one, I'm afraid! He/she delights in posting REALLY bad articles, usually using proscribed russian sources, but not always.

to encourage those editors who have the joy of biota=y to add a little friend otherwise known as biota-importance=low - which is the default position - having just to the place that got to the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Unknown-importance_Australian_biota_articles being less than 10k - am trying to ask for help all around from the punters who seem to think its sexy to leave biota=y as the remnant allegiance to some very strange political ideology - I am on a mission not to destroy shopping centres or any particular fight of any sort to see if we can have biota-importance=low floating in vitory to conquer the world and similar parallel universes trust all is well despite this message JarrahTree 12:41, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

sheesh the range of responses to this is in itself is quite telling - I suspect there is a huge field out there full of australian biota items with no australian tag, or even tags for that matter... the great rumsfeld unknown looms as some exciting potential discovery :( JarrahTree 23:43, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
Big list, will help out to whittle back. Watching the page curation list blow out again too... Jeez man. Hughesdarren (talk) 02:14, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Acacia shirleyiEdit

 On 23 February 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Acacia shirleyi, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the bark of the lancewood (pictured) smells like violets when cut or exposed? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Acacia shirleyi. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Acacia shirleyi), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

explanationEdit

at todays meeting https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/Perth/55#Details it was announced that the two dormant project relative to the wheatbelt will be resurrected - where the project tag is applied to all relevant articles - not for assessment, but more as a statistical and logistic device - so that

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Western_Australian_Wheatbelt_Project_-_Railways is part of the bigger project and has a subordinate tag inside - inside rater - wikiproject wheatbelt - add parameter = railway
the plan is to have all articles of places/people things relative to the wheatbelt to be within the scope - so as to be able to identify where coverage is - and where improvements are needed.
hope all this makes some sort of sense JarrahTree 08:12, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
OK, thanks for the heads up. Will keep it in mind when doing any Wheatbelt stuff. Hope you all had a good time! Hughesdarren (talk) 09:04, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
I might ask evad if we can have a wheatbelt sub section of wheatbelt biota - to separate plants from the rest JarrahTree 09:08, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
Just did rocks and lakes, let me know what the verdict is on plants. Cheers. Hughesdarren (talk) 10:27, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
my request to evad for extras (after railways) is for people, heritage, biota and natural features - which means as an after thought biota for plants and animals - natural features can relate to lakes and rocks and rivers - - can always be added after initial wheatbelt tag... JarrahTree 10:34, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Sebastopol (album)Edit

Hello Hughesdarren. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Sebastopol (album), a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: A9 requires that the artist does not have an article and that there are no claims of importance/significance regarding the musical recording itself. Thank you. SoWhy 13:15, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

Infobox discretionary sanctions alertEdit

 This is a standard message to notify contributors about an administrative ruling in effect. It does not imply that there are any issues with your contributions to date.

You have shown interest in discussions about infoboxes and to edits adding, deleting, collapsing, or removing verifiable information from infoboxes. Due to past disruption in this topic area, a more stringent set of rules called discretionary sanctions is in effect. Any administrator may impose sanctions on editors who do not strictly follow Wikipedia's policies, or the page-specific restrictions, when making edits related to the topic.

For additional information, please see the guidance on discretionary sanctions and the Arbitration Committee's decision here. If you have any questions, or any doubts regarding what edits are appropriate, you are welcome to discuss them with me or any other editor.

ThanksEdit

Thanks for your kindness. I often overwrite your work with a sense of guilt that I'm changing something that was created by someone who's written more, and on more subjects than just about anybody else, and certainly more than I have. The result of my vandalism ....I'm thanked! Today's project - to locate Eucalyptus approximans, on Barren Mountain, is in honour of you. Gderrin (talk) 21:12, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

Don't ever worry about overwriting my stuff, any expansion is welcome on most of them. Look forward to seeing you work your magic on E. approximans! Cheers! Hughesdarren (talk) 21:42, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Finally found E. approximans! Hard work. Working on E. carnei at the moment. Interestingly, Euclid has Mr. Carne as "eventually seconded to the Commonwealth Department of Commerce and stayed there until his retirement in 1950"[1] but the Australian National Herbarium has "supervisor of fresh fruit and vegetable exports for the Victorian Department of Commerce and Agriculture 1941-1950".[2] Not a big deal - just thought you'd be interested.

NPR Newsletter No.17Edit

Hello Hughesdarren,

News
Discussions of interest
  • Two elements of CSD G6 have been split into their own criteria: R4 for redirects in the "File:" namespace with the same name as a file or redirect at Wikimedia Commons (Discussion), and G14 for disambiguation pages which disambiguate zero pages, or have "(disambiguation)" in the title but disambiguate a single page (Discussion).
  • {{db-blankdraft}} was merged into G13 (Discussion)
  • A discussion recently closed with no consensus on whether to create a subject-specific notability guideline for theatrical plays.
  • There is an ongoing discussion on a proposal to create subject-specific notability guidelines for chemicals and organism taxa.
Reminders
  • NPR is not a binary keep / delete process. In many cases a redirect may be appropriate. The deletion policy and its associated guideline clearly emphasise that not all unsuitable articles must be deleted. Redirects are not contentious. See a classic example of the templates to use. More templates are listed at the R template index. Reviewers who are not aware, do please take this into consideration before PROD, CSD, and especially AfD because not even all admins are aware of such policies, and many NAC do not have a full knowledge of them.
NPP Tools Report
  • Superlinks – allows you to check an article's history, logs, talk page, NPP flowchart (on unpatrolled pages) and more without navigating away from the article itself.
  • copyvio-check – automatically checks the copyvio percentage of new pages in the background and displays this info with a link to the report in the 'info' panel of the Page curation toolbar.

Speedy deletionsEdit

I have contested several of your WP:A7 speedy deletion taggings today. Saying that someone is vice chancellor of a university or runs a company with over 5000 employees is clearly an indication of importance or significance. Please adjust your sights before making any more such taggings. Phil Bridger (talk) 06:58, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

btw, perhaps you are not aware that in the UK and related systems of higher education, a vice-chancellor is effectually the highest executive officer of a university? The chancellor is a honorary position, usually given to a distinguished politician or public figure. DGG ( talk ) 04:09, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

I.V. DocEdit

Thank you for your contribution on I.V. Doc page. I came to know about it while Kim Kardashian's controversy about using I.V. Doc. So I thought of writing about it.

Kurrajong Heights HotelEdit

The version you accepted is no longer visible to non-admins, because it was composed of a copypaste of very long over-detailed excerps from newspapers, justified as being based on an CC-NC license. Such a license is not compatible with WP--NC beans commercial use is forbidden, and WP articlesmust be usable by anyone. (and such a string of detailedreprint would nto have been a WP article in any case). A more experienced reviewed marked the copyvio, and another admin with wide experience on such issues deleted 95% of the article, leaving a stub. I deleted a little more that was present in the infobox. Possibly the most improtantthing to be aware of in reviewing is the possibility of copyvio. First, it was obvious from the face of the article that it was copied and the license not appropriate to WP, and second, it is necessary to check every draft and new article for copyvio as a matter of course. Please see the other admins comment at User talk:Southern Armada DGG ( talk ) 04:09, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

It was me who had brought the article to the attention of Dianaa who deleted 95% of the text as you indicated. Unfortunately I had accepted the article after fact checking it but hadn't run it through Earwig until after I had accepted it, it was at this point I found the change couldn't be reversed and asked for Dianaa's help including making the comment that alot of the text was presented as quotes which is can be acceptable when attributed. Thanks for the comments but I aware well aware of the the mistake I made and have been running Earwig as a first step rather than a last step when reviewing articles. Regards.

You know what you are saying this is what you mean to say like this: Why should we know to a state's chief minister, why should we know to any of the IAS Ashok Khemka, why do we know about any IAS Chandrakala? He is a popular IAS officer in India.

And if he is most searched IAS officer. It obviously means that people want to know about him. This is a simple logic. And you editor.......if couldn't understand it. You need to go school again my boy😂😂😂😂😒😏😏😏😂😂😂 Ajajaymehta (talk) 09:13, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

Been deleted now mate. Try reading WP:GNG. Hughesdarren (talk) 07:52, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.18Edit

Hello Hughesdarren,

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.

Sydney Central Police StationEdit

I received a suggestion from you re the above article "Tag:close paraphrasing." I'm sorry to say I couldn't see what you meant. I have added another reference and also, with help from another user, changed the attribution to a "CC-BY" as granted by NSW Heritage. Perhaps this solves the problem. If not, could you please let me know what you think needs doing. Thanks. Collywolly (talk) 11:35, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Acacia siculiformisEdit

Hi, as there wasn't a picture on the article, but there are two on Wikimedia Commons I've added one. There isn't any reason to distrust the identification, is there? Worried there's something I'm missing. Blythwood (talk) 09:23, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Good call, The habit and phyllode shape look right. I must have missed it, usually I take a peak at commons but obviously didn't this time. Cheers and best regards. Hughesdarren (talk) 09:31, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Australia? Quetzal1964 (talk) 07:58, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

I didn't add the WP Australia tag, just the low importance tag. I didn't see anything that specifically mentioned Australia in the article but it did say they migrated to Sri Lanka so I thought maybe they occasionally got as far as Australia as well and as a result left the tag in, feel free to remove if you know for sure that they don't.
