Congratulations to everyone who participated in this year's WikiCup, whether you made it to the final rounds or not, and particular congratulations to the newcomers to the WikiCup who have achieved much this year. Thanks to all who have taken part and helped out with the competition, not forgetting User:Jarry1250, who runs the scoring bot.
We have opened a scoring discussion on whether the rules and scoring need adjustment. Please have your say. Next year's competition will begin on 1 January. You are invited to sign up to participate; the WikiCup is open to all Wikipedians, both novices and experienced editors, and we hope to see you all in the 2020 competition. Until then, it only remains to once again congratulate our worthy winners, and thank all participants for their involvement!

"This doesn't impact my view of you as an admin, but for future reference an answer I was looking for was that A7 explicitly exempts educational institutions. ". There are many ways to skin a cat and I found the candidate's answer perfectly acceptable. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 07:44, 6 November 2019 (UTC)
Jonathan Peter speedyEdit
Hi, I speedied Jonathan Peter while NPPing and only noticed afterwards that it had already been speedied then declined by you. I will note that I checked IMDB and other sources and the guy's only "credits" appear to be uncredited appearances in a couple of shorts no one's heard of. However, if you think it should go to AfD I'll happily rescind my speedy & move it there. JamesG5 (talk) 06:11, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
- Hey JamesG5, yes, I do believe you should either PROD it (but not BLPPROD, as the "External Links" constitute references of sorts), or if you feel that deletion would be controversial (I don't necessarily think that it would) take it to AfD (from what I know of it at this time I'd probably vote delete on it), but I think that it just barely skims by A7. – John M Wolfson (talk • contribs) 06:35, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
A survey to improve the community consultation outreach processEdit
The Wikimedia Foundation is seeking to improve the community consultation outreach process for Foundation policies, and we are interested in why you didn't participate in a recent consultation that followed a community discussion you’ve been part of.
Please fill out this short survey to help us improve our community consultation process for the future. It should only take about three minutes.
Thank you for your participation, Kbrown (WMF) 10:44, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
