Five minutes to help make WikiProjects better

Hello!

First, on behalf of WikiProject X, thank you for trying out the WikiProject X pilot projects. I would like to get some anonymous feedback from you on your experience using the new WikiProject layout and tools. This way, we will know what we did right, and if we did something horribly wrong, we can try to fix it. This feedback won't be associated with your username, so please be completely honest. We are determined to improve the experience of Wikipedians, and your feedback helps us with that. (You are also welcome to leave non-anonymous feedback at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject X.)

Please complete the survey here. The survey has two parts: the first part asks for your username, while the second part contains the survey questions. These two parts are stored separately, so your username will not be associated with your feedback. There are only nine questions and it should not take very long to complete. Once you complete the survey I will leave a handwritten note on your talk page as a token of my appreciation.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you, Harej (talk) 17:49, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Hello! Just sending a reminder to complete the survey linked above. (This is the only reminder I'll send, I promise.) Let me know on my talk page if you have any questions. Thank you!!! Harej (talk) 22:21, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know, Cass. I'll sort it out in the morning - if there's nothing covering it online then if all else fails I'll probably remove it. Regards JAGUAR  22:47, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
I'm not having any luck finding it online. If I'm heading out that way Monday, I suppose I could take a picture of the plaque and upload it to another site which is accepted as a secondary source, as I'm fresh out of ideas for the moment.

WikiProject Good Articles's 2015 GA Cup - Round 3

WikiProject Good Articles's 2015 GA Cup - Round 3
 

Greetings, all! We hope that everyone had a nice summer.

Saturday saw the end of Round 2. Things went relatively smoothly this month. The top 2 from 4 pools, plus the top participant (the wildcard, or "9th place") of all remaining competitors, moved onto Round 3. We had one withdrawal early in Round 2, so he was replaced by the next-highest scorer from Round 1. Round 2's highest scorer was Pool D's Tomandjerry211, who earned an impressive 366 points; he also reviewed the most articles (19). Close behind was Zwerg Nase, also in Pool D, at 297 points and 16 articles. The wildcard slot went to Good888. Congrats to all!

Round 3 will have 9 competitors in 3 pools. The key to moving forward was reviewing articles with the longest nomination dates, as it has been in every round up to now. For example, 2 competitors only needed to review 2 articles each to win in their pools, and each article were either from the pink nomination box (20 points) or had languished in the queue for over 5 months (18 points). The GA Cup continues to be a success in many ways, even with fewer competitors this time. For some reason, the competitors in the 2015 GA Cup have reviewed fewer articles in Round 2, which has made the judges scratch their head in confusion. We've speculated many reasons for that: the summer months and vacations, our competitors are saving their strength for the final rounds, or they all live in the Pacific Northwest and the heavy wildfire smoke has affected their thinking. Whatever the reason, Round 2 competitors reviewed almost 100 articles, which is a significant impact in the task of reviewing articles for GA status. We've considered that the lower participation this competition is due to timing, so we intend to discuss the best time frame for future GA Cups.

For Round 3, participants have been placed randomly in 3 pools of 3 contestants each; the top editor in each pool will progress, as well as the top 2 of all remaining users. Round 3 will start on September 1 at 0:00:01 UTC and end on September 28 at 23:59:59 UTC. Information about Round 3 and the pools can be found here.

Good luck to the remaining contestants, and have fun!

Cheers from Figureskatingfan, 3family6 and Jaguar, and MrWooHoo.

Bentworth

How much do you really want to promote this? My feeling is that people (I don't mean Brian or Sagacious) are now jumping on the bandwagon with an onslaught now issues have been identified and it's going to be exceedingly difficult to promote it. We could wait several months and really ensure everything is ironed out and I still think it'll get a similar response. It's also going to be difficult to convince the people who originally supported it to confidently support it again. Honestly my gut would just be to walk away from it and work on Alton to GA, I don't think it's worth all of this effort. It's just one of those articles I think which are just best avoided! Yes, it would be good, but it's just a star at the end of the day. A great deal of effort has already gone into trying to sort it out, but people are now complaining about the prose too...♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:12, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

I know you're right. I wonder what happened. I respect Sagacious and Brian for their excellent reviews, and in all seriousness the article rapidly improved thanks to Brian's source check, but now I'm once again discovering the darker side of FACs, and Wikipedia for that matter. The FAC process needs overlooking and I don't think it will ever change. Some of the comments now are so anal that it's clear that people are trying to stop Bentworth from being promoted due to its initial sourcing problems. On one hand, I'll be happy to walk away from it as it has distracted me from editing other articles I would love to promote to GA, but on the other hand I'll be sad to let it go after six years and over 800 edits on the article. Would a reader really give a damn about sfn templates and publishers being assigned in author algorithms? I know now that people don't want this promoted because of the most trivial concerns. I hate to let it go, but I have to. Would have been the culmination of my work to see a little village on the front page of Wikipedia! Don't worry, I'm not angry at all (if it sounds like it), I'm actually glad to consider letting this go. I'm just really sad about it. JAGUAR  19:13, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
I've withdrawn it, as I can see it escalating into a circus show. I disagree with many of the comments but I do think there's still a few sources in there which might not 100% reflect what is given in the source. The problem here was that new sources/content was added and I don't think We hope or myself knew what had changed from when we initially reviewed them. We need to be 100% that they've all been resolved before taking it there again. Yes, it's been unfortunate, it was that sort of reception back in 2006/7 which completely frightened me away from FAC for six or seven years, but in fairness FAC is about nitpicking. It needs to be done in an environment though where reviewers actually want to help you promote it and help resolve issues. As I say, I think the best thing is to open a peer review perhaps in the new year and really try to ensure it's sound and Brian at least feels more confident with it. We all need a considerable break from Bentworth.♦ Dr. Blofeld 21:22, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
Couldn't agree more. We've done an excellent job on the article since 2012 and it has still improved despite the two failed FACs. I'm trying to look on the bright side of things here - it's a lot of strain taken from us and will give us both the opportunity to work on other things. I really don't think I can contribute to another FA, but bear in mind I'm saying that now and who knows what will happen in several months! I'd like to focus on Alton soon, so I'll let you know when I'm about to make a start on it. Yeah, the FAC environment wasn't very constructive. I honestly don't think I'm capable of ever writing a FA, as ashamed I am to say it. JAGUAR  21:28, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Once people suspect sourcing issues it can often be a very difficult place. While there's always a lot of nitpicking at FAC, most articles don't have verification issues like there were originally with it and have been freshly checked, so there's not usually that problem. That was the main reason I think things turned negative. It can be very frustrating to see selective picking like that though ignoring 99% of the good of it and forming an argument that it's grossly inadequate. Still, there were a few sources picked up in the review that really need resolving. I do think you can promote it, but you'll need a decent new PR once it;s been forgotten and people willing to help you fix EVERYTHING before FAC haha!♦ Dr. Blofeld 21:42, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

That sounds like the only way, maybe if I regain my determination and drive to promote it again, but for the mean time I'm glad that it's out of the way for now. I'd like to work on Alton, and that Buster Bros. game you asked me to take to GAN! I could definitely do that given that there are well covered sources for it (surprisingly there are for most 80s games). But yeah, I'm still glad that we managed to take Bentworth that far. It probably has the reputation for being the most comprehensive village on Wikipedia! Will someone please prove me wrong? JAGUAR  21:55, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
For my part, I really didn't want to post the sort of response that was likely to shoot down a nomination, but things are what they are. When I spotchecked the Transactions article and it made exactly the opposite point the article does, well... It's clear that you've inherited quite a few problems from that article's extremely busy editing past, and I don't have a quick fix for them, sadly. In the interest of comity, and the eventual development of the article, I've dredged up a source for the George III Jubilee tree-planting that doesn't rely on the webpage of a local gliding club (and mentioned it at the FAC). It's a start, at least. Squeamish Ossifrage (talk) 22:01, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
I'd like to thank you for your helpful comments, Squeamish Ossifrage. I was searching high and low for that source during the previous FAC but I couldn't find it. I think I had to chuck out a lot of content from the Post-War section because I couldn't find anything regarding the avenue of trees. I think withdrawal was the best option, as it would have more than likely gained more opposes had it continued. I'm personally burned out from contributing to another FAC, but I think we'll take all of those comments from the review into account if we ever decide to renominate. Like Dr. Blofeld said though, it'll be best to take it apart sentence by sentence and request a PR so that everyone is happy. JAGUAR  22:15, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

I feel like you've run into one of the reasons many FA writers prefer to work in a vacuum, or start articles from scratch, or rewrite existing articles completely. It's obvious from what's happened with the sourcing at Bentworth that you can't take anything for granted and you can't be reasonably sure that anyone else's work is above board. I've really only casually perused the history of the article, but I see that it's undergone periods of editing by people other than you and the Doctor. Who knows how much of that stuff remains and if it can be depended upon. If you get the urge to revisit it some time in the future, I'd urge you just start over in your sandbox and create a new version based on what you know and what sources you have access to. --Laser brain (talk) 00:20, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

@Laser brain: Yes, exactly that, the vast majority of problems with this derives from the fact that it was partly written before it was properly sourced. When you know nothing about an article subject, usually you don't get that problem in writing something from scratch because you're relying on those sources to give you the information and don't know enough about it to claim things not in the source. With this there was not only the OR issue but the fact that info I remember myself being available no longer being accessible. I always think it's best to start an article from scratch when taking to FAC, I think this is a lesson learned not to trust the sourcing of older articles and not checking them before nominating something. I didn't have that problem with Bramshill House though, though that was largely written in 2013, not further back. So in future, if you're going to go for FA it's best to do it from scratch, open a PR immediately afterwards, then proceed to FAC. Frank Sinatra which I'm planning on writing will be written largely from scratch. Alton, Hampshire which I believe you want to expand should be started from scratch I think, even if you added content years back. When you build it, check the info is fully verifiable in the source.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:10, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Friends with Benefits (film)

Hi Jaguar! Sorry for bringing you another stupid request. Can you review this article, which I have nominated for GA, as I can not wait that long (don't know how long). In a short period of time I might bid Wikipedia adieu and that I don't want to have any pending activity. Thanks for reading this. -- Frankie talk 20:41, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

I'll be happy to take it, Frankie! I should finish the review tomorrow. I hope everything is well with you, Wikipedia can be very stressful at times (as I found out yesterday) and setbacks can make us want to leave. I've retired twice 2011-2013 but I find that ignoring drama and building content I enjoy keeps me somewhat active. JAGUAR  20:47, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
Sorry to hear about the FAC's failure. Indeed, FAC/FLC are very stressful processes, sometimes extremely stressful. I thought it would pass in the previous nomination. Reviewers, at times, fight over trivial facts, including myself (doh) which stops a page from being promoted (I am not badmouthing any reviewer). Anyway, good luck to you and Dr. Blofeld. -- Frankie talk 21:17, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
It didn't fail, we withdrew it, there is a difference!♦ Dr. Blofeld 22:18, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
Withdrawal leads to not promoting, which is somewhat equal to failure. Never mind. -- Frankie talk 22:36, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for reviewing the article Jaguar. If interested, you can watch the film with subtitles here Pavanjandhyala (talk) 01:17, 14 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, Pavan! I'll watch it tomorrow evening when I get the time. JAGUAR  20:59, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

So, did you find time to watch this film? BTW, is your health okay? Pavanjandhyala (talk) 17:59, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

@Pavanjandhyala: I'm really enjoying it so far! I watched almost half of it yesterday and should finish it tonight. The music is so catchy, it makes it better for me as I can't understand the language and yet I've re-watched the first music sequence because it's so watchable! 4:10 on the video has to be the most epic fruit stand clip I've ever seen LOL. Oh, and I'm getting better thanks. Everyone here seems to be getting the flu lately. JAGUAR  20:17, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
My favourite sequences in the film were the ones where the hero asks the heroine to rethink just before the intermission and the one where the hero's real identity is revealed by his father in the pre-climax. BTW, aren't the subtitles working? Pavanjandhyala (talk) 11:16, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
The subtitles aren't accurate most of the time, but I can make out what the mistakes are meant to be saying and I still understand the plot. All in all, I really like the film! I think it's better than most Hollywood action films of the genre. It's a welcoming change when places like New York aren't the centre of the universe... JAGUAR  22:16, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
I could find only a single source that sports subtitles. Sadly, the same can't be said of Anniyan (Ssven2's recent GAN). In Pokiri, apart from the above scenes, i also find the climax well written esp. at 02:38:04-02:38:30 and the closing sequence where the hero finally kills the inspector. What was your favourite? Pavanjandhyala (talk) 02:35, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply Pavan, I've been off Wikipedia for a few days due to family issues. I've watched the whole of Pokiri and really enjoyed the film! Sometimes YouTube has automatic subtitle annotations for certain videos (usually for feature length films, like Pokiri), unfortunately though the subtitles are mostly inaccurate. 17:30 - 18:30 was funny as hell and to be honest, my favourite part is also your favourite part! I think it was cleverly choreographed and well written overall. So many sequences were good and it's hard to decide which one was my personal favourite. I'd like to watch it again at some point. The attack styles of Pokiri remind me a lot of those in Kingsman: The Secret Service - another good film JAGUAR  12:41, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
No need to say sorry, Jaguar. I can understand. I will surely try to watch Kingsman: The Secret Service soon. And among all my favourite sequences, the intermission scene stands out. Thanks for reviewing the article and watching the film. For now, i have a GAN awaiting review and an ongoing FLC which is my first. Any help from you for both of these is appreciated. Pavanjandhyala (talk) 13:46, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
Oh yes, Kingsman was very entertaining! It has big actors such as Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson. It's more of a "serious comedy" with over the top fight scenes. I personally don't think it's a comedy as the plot is too serious. The pub scene is by far the most legendary fight sequence I've seen in a long time! I'll be happy to review your GAN and should take a look at the FLC soon, though I'm not sure what tomorrow will bring me... JAGUAR  17:52, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

GA review?

Hi, may I bother you with another suggestion for a GA review, Man singet mit Freuden vom Sieg, BWV 149? I know that you did several already, but this is another one which I would like to see on the Main page a given near date (29 September), and you have proven to be "fast" like a Jaguar. Two other cantata I wanted a given date are still under review, past that date.

Same day, unbelievably fast! - I found an unsigned item on my talk the other day, what do you think? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:24, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
For your question, you picked my archive, DYK? - It was my introduction to WP:AE. Kindly look at the other 36 contributions by the user also ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:21, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
Just realised! I'm sorry for digging into that. Luckily I've never had to deal with ArbCom (as of yet anyway), so I wasn't aware of the situation at the time. The discussion was also in October 2013, and I almost never edited in 2013! After some reading, I understand it was regarding the infobox dispute. JAGUAR  14:00, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
It was about 2 people coming to my talk and threatening me to take me to AE (arbitration enforcement - I had no idea what that was, now I know: avoid avoid avoid!) because I added an infobox to a Bach cantata which I had expanded (so not "created" in their sense). Of course my friend could have said it politer ;) - I don't know if you can see in what a miserable position I am in that RfA: imagine no opposes because of the opera and what is perceived as "battleground", just imagine I would not have been there to be defended. - I believe there are worse traits in an admin than defending a friend who she thinks has been treated unfairly. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:24, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
Ah, I see now. I've had to make some hard decisions at the RfA too - no doubt many of us have. There are some people who oppose purely because other people have (without making points of their own), but in a way I think that happens in every RfA. Had I known the full story my feelings would be different, but then again I 2013 was my retirement year! ;-D JAGUAR  22:16, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
Don't expect anybody to know any "full story", but a bit of context helps. Something is wrong with RfA if a person's right to move DYK preps to queue depends on what people think about her supporting alleged allies in 2013. Some talk about push-button to block as if the blocked one was dead afterwards. It could be simply reverted. I expect - assuming good faith - any new admin to block with care, - actually I expect that even from the more experienced ones. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:08, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
I couldn't agree more - and sorry for the late reply Gerda, I've been away due to family issues. I hope all is well with you at the moment. I feel sorry for everyone who has to endure the RfA process, non-admins and successful admins alike. Don't get me wrong, there are some excellent admins out there who knows when it is the right time to block someone. Dennis was very kind enough to not block me back in July 2014 (long story), when usually under the circumstance any other trigger happy admin would have escalated the situation with a short sighted block.

Fleet

I was up in your neck of the woods this weekend, in a small place called Fleet, with the family. Do you know anything about the old ruined church in Church Road? After further research, I have just found this which was rather sad. CassiantoTalk 18:42, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

@Cassianto: yes, sadly arson. A 16 year old (at the time) boy burned it down for no apparent reason. I have no idea what motivates some people to do these things. Another church in a village near me totally burned to the ground due to an "electrical fire", but I think it was another arson attack. In my opinion that one was even worse because that church was much older... JAGUAR  18:53, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Dr. Blofeld, KJP1 for your info as it was a Burges building. It's like the sick bastard who set fire to the Cheshire Dog's Home, also a youngster I believe. I don't see the point. Let's hope something similar happens to them. CassiantoTalk 19:03, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Yup, I know, I expressed strong words about it when it happened. The kid should be shot!♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:08, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
I expect the left-wing people huggers will blame ADHD or "a broken childhood". I blame them and their sick minds, personally. CassiantoTalk 19:10, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
I couldn't agree more! JAGUAR  19:13, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
It was indeed a great tragedy - so few buildings and one of those wholly ruined. I fear the diocese is unlikely to have the funds necessary for a full restoration. KJP1 (talk) 18:11, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Wipeout

  • Thanks for sharing that czar, that's amazing! Even mentions a bit about Syphon Filter too. I wouldn't have thought that Sony would let a successful franchise die with Psygnosis. Next up you'll be sending me links saying Rosie and Jim will make a comeback! JAGUAR  18:00, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

Nenjil Or Aalayam

Hello, Jaguar. It has been a while. How are you? This film is my next planned GA and I was wondering if you might be interested in giving this article a copyedit. :) Thamizhan1994 (Appo Pesu) 07:34, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi Thamizhan, I've been very well thank you. I'll be happy to copyedit it, I'll give it a read through now and should start copyediting ASAP. JAGUAR  17:09, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
