RD as blurbEdit

By crash the internet, I meant actually cause service disruption. See Death of Michael Jackson#Media and Internet coverage and the similar disruption happened with Kobe. I used to have a much lower bar but our failure to post the death of John Lewis has made me jaded. The idea of a transformative figure is very subjective. I must oppose posting Chadwick Boseman because it would have been an affront considering Lewis. As a POC, if I was a reader and I noticed that Boseman receive a more respected treatment than Lewis, I would be offended. --- C&C (Coffeeandcrumbs) 18:45, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

@Coffeeandcrumbs: Ah, I assumed you were using the figurative "crash the internet", which I was skeptical of. (RDs as blurbs seem to have been climbing in need for various standards of notability recently, which I don't really like) Kingsif (talk) 19:36, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Chadwick BosemanEdit

Hi, Kingsif. Happy to do the footnote any way you think makes the most sense, but we do need to move that footnote out of the infobox, as per MOS. Could we collaborate on this? Would you like to do it? Would you like me to?--Tenebrae (talk) 17:18, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

@Tenebrae: Yeah, you can do it - just name the note like a ref rather than duplicate it. On the MOS, though, isn't it just that smaller text is advised against in infoboxes, and that footnotes, like refs, are fine. A similar issue occurred on the article for Naya Rivera about her death date. I added the note there in the lead and infobox, and it was removed from the lead with the reason it did not belong in the lead just the infobox. Kingsif (talk) 17:53, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, Kings. I'll do that and I'll go to Naya Rivera and back you up on that — the death date should be cited in the article body and not the infobox. --Tenebrae (talk) 18:02, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
I guess I'm misunderstanding what you mean. The only way I know to do a footnote that contains multiple cites is the way that footnote is formatted now. The name of the cite isn't the issue; it's the location of the cite. I apologize for not understanding; could you explain it more specifically, or alternately move the footnote? With thanks, --Tenebrae (talk) 18:09, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
Done at Naya Rivera, which also contains a large number of cite-format errors. I've worked through a few and will work through more later.--Tenebrae (talk) 18:25, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
@Tenebrae: Undone all that, with reasons. Okay, so you can name a footnote just like you can name a ref. But I guess I'll do that for you. Kingsif (talk) 18:33, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

WikiCup 2020 September newsletterEdit

The fourth round of the competition has finished, with 865 points being required to qualify for the final round, nearly twice as many points as last year. It was a hotly competitive round with two contestants with 598 and 605 points being eliminated, and all but two of the contestants who reached the final round having achieved an FA during the round. The highest scorers were

  •   Bloom6132, with 1478 points gained mainly from 5 featured lists, 12 DYKs and 63 in the news items;
  •  HaEr48 with 1318 points gained mainly from 2 featured articles, 5 good articles and 8 DYKs;
  •   Lee Vilenski with 1201 points mainly gained from 2 featured articles and 10 good articles.

Between them, contestants achieved 14 featured articles, 14 featured lists, 2 featured pictures, 87 good articles, 90 DYK entries, 75 ITN entries, 95 featured article candidate reviews and 81 good article reviews. Congratulations to all who participated! It was a generally high-scoring and productive round and I think we can expect a highly competitive finish to the competition.

Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 4 but before the start of round 5 can be claimed in round 5. Remember too that you must claim your points within 10 days of "earning" them. If you are concerned that your nomination will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. It would be helpful if this list could be cleared of any items no longer relevant. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Talk:Cai Lun/GA1Edit

Kingsif, I hope you are well. I have no idea what your schedule's like these days, but this nomination was taken and quickly passed when it shouldn't have been. The original reviewer has reverted their passage and bowed out, and I was wondering whether you'd be willing to take it on. There are prose issues, as I've noted on the review page, but it's an interesting subject/person, and I think the nominator will be willing to work on issues should you take it on. If it isn't feasible, let me know and I'll put out a second-opinion call. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 05:20, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

I am a little more free now! I'll take a look, I think I was pinged to another film GAN review that's been abandoned, but I'll try to get through both :) Kingsif (talk) 06:57, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
Kingsif, it's been a couple of weeks. Does it still look like you'll be able to get to this one in the near future, or should I put out the "second opinion" shingle? Thanks again for all your reviewing. BlueMoonset (talk) 03:07, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I just read through it and it seems short enough to get through fairly quickly, too! And thanks :) Kingsif (talk) 10:20, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

DYK for Kerr HewittEdit

 On 4 September 2020, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Kerr Hewitt, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that in both his 2010 film roles, Kjartan Hewitt's characters notably attend a Broken Social Scene concert? You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Kerr Hewitt), 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.

Cite positioning re quoteEdit

Apparently MOS:BLOCKQUOTE does back that up, so I won't argue with it, but I must admit I am rather surprised it claims the way you did it is "more usual". I cite blockquotes at the bottom, largely because a lot of the academic and legal writing I've used as sources do it that way, and I've seen a lot of other editors do it that way, so I thought it was standard. I wonder if that section of the MOS was written a long time ago.

I won't make an issue of it, but I do wonder if the MOS should revisit that as a lot of people don't seem to be following that particular part. Daniel Case (talk) 05:39, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

I think it is an old part of the MOS, from when people used different templates/formatting and putting a ref at the end would mess it up, but I still find it simpler to go back to it :) No problem, and thanks for the review. Kingsif (talk) 06:00, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

DYK nomination of History of Flagstaff, Arizona 2Edit

  Hello! Your submission of History of Flagstaff, Arizona 2 at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and some issues with it may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) at your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! Yoninah (talk) 20:54, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

Talk:John H. Hill/GA1Edit

Kingsif, I was wondering whether you could take a look at this and see if it is indeed ready to be approved, and if so, approve it. (If not, but it's close, point out what's left to be done.) It's a new reviewer, and even though an apparent professor, that doesn't mean they're fully cognizant of the specifics of Wikipedia; they certainly haven't been covering all the steps in the GA review process. I just received a note from the nominator, who isn't getting a response from the reviewer about taking that final approval step. Thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 15:57, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Of course :) Kingsif (talk) 21:06, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:WikiProject BiographyEdit

I don't care how many RFCs you may have done at the correct venue; you do not get to start one at an incorrect one. The place for an RFC on some lead image is at the article's talk page. If you edit war to undo my admin actions, I will block you for disruption. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 16:12, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

@NinjaRobotPirate: This message has a very negative tone and assumes bad faith before a theoretical action has even occurred. I don't care how frustrated you are, you could at least try to be polite about someone trying to solve a problem. Kingsif (talk) 16:16, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

Cinematic style of Christopher NolanEdit

Hello Kingsif,

First and foremost, greatly appreciate your insightful GA-review back in March, that gave me some solid feedback after working on it for some time. I've been going through the article and adressed many of your concerns. It still needs some work on reflayout and so forth, but I wonder if you could take a quick look at it and tell me what I should focus on for it to pass GA. If you're busy working on something else I completely understand if you don't have the time. Best regards, Sammyjankis88 (talk) 14:46, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
