Clarification of wording of Barbara's topic banEdit

Sandstein has closed the User:Barbara (WVS) ANI discussion with a topic ban worded "is topic-banned (WP:TBAN) from medical articles". Following discussion with Sandstein regarding the scope of that topic ban (User_talk:Sandstein#What_the_topic_ban_covers), it is felt that further wording is required. Therefore it is proposed that the wording of the topic ban is amended to read:

"By consensus of the community, Barbara (WVS) (talk · contribs), also editing as Bfpage (talk · contribs), is topic-banned (WP:TBAN) from health and medical topics, including anatomy and sexuality, broadly construed, and is also banned from interacting with Flyer22 (talk · contribs) (WP:IBAN)."

As you took place in the discussion, please visit Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents#Proposal_for_clarification_of_scope_of_topic_ban to give your views. SilkTork (talk) 08:40, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 7Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Alcohol and pregnancy, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Premature (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:18, 7 April 2018 (UTC)

MfD nomination of Wikipedia:WikiProject ParentingEdit

  Wikipedia:WikiProject Parenting, a page which you created or substantially contributed to, has been nominated for deletion. Your opinions on the matter are welcome; you may participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Wikipedia:WikiProject Parenting and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You are free to edit the content of Wikipedia:WikiProject Parenting during the discussion but should not remove the miscellany for deletion template from the top of the page; such a removal will not end the deletion discussion. Thank you. BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 01:11, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Template:WikiProject ParentingEdit

Regarding this WikiProject template, as I commented at the MfD page, I have created documentation at Template:WikiProject Parenting/doc. I have some questions regarding the banner template proper:

  1. Why have you provided the |class= and |importance= parameters with positional aliases? This is very unusual, and can lead to problems with some scripts and bots.
  2. Why is the parameter |MAIN_CAT=WikiProject Women's Health articles present? Did you intend to set it to something else?

I think that's it for now. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 19:57, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

@Redrose64: Thanks for adding the doc! Neither of those issues were intentional. I fixed the main category bit. If you want to fix it go right ahead :). Mvolz (talk) 17:38, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
OK, I removed the aliasing too. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 18:54, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

Hello! After the successful pilot program by Wikimedia India in 2015, Wiki Loves Food (WLF) is happening again in 2018 and this year, it's going International. To make this event a grand success, your direction is key. Please sign up here as a volunteer to bring all the world's food to Wikimedia. Danidamiobi (talk) 20:57, 6 May 2018 (UTC)

ReferencesEdit

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. Remember that when adding content about health, please only use high-quality reliable sources as references. We typically use review articles, major textbooks and position statements of national or international organizations (There are several kinds of sources that discuss health: here is how the community classifies them and uses them). WP:MEDHOW walks you through editing step by step. A list of resources to help edit health content can be found here. The edit box has a built-in citation tool to easily format references based on the PMID or ISBN. We also provide style advice about the structure and content of medicine-related encyclopedia articles. The welcome page is another good place to learn about editing the encyclopedia. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a note. Jytdog (talk) 01:15, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

Editing News #2—2018Edit

Read this in another languageSubscription list for this multilingual newsletterSubscription list on the English Wikipedia

Did you know?

Did you know that you can use the visual editor on a mobile device?

Tap on the pencil icon to start editing. The page will probably open in the wikitext editor.

You will see another pencil icon in the toolbar. Tap on that pencil icon to the switch between visual editing and wikitext editing.

Remember to publish your changes when you're done.

You can read and help translate the user guide, which has more information about how to use the visual editor.

Since the last newsletter, the Editing Team has wrapped up most of their work on the 2017 wikitext editor and the visual diff tool. The team has begun investigating the needs of editors who use mobile devices. Their work board is available in Phabricator. Their current priorities are fixing bugs and improving mobile editing.

Recent changesEdit

Let's work togetherEdit

  • The Editing team wants to improve visual editing on the mobile website. Please read their ideas and tell the team what you think would help editors who use the mobile site.
  • The Community Wishlist Survey begins next week.
  • If you aren't reading this in your preferred language, then please help us with translations! Subscribe to the Translators mailing list or contact us directly. We will notify you when the next issue is ready for translation. Thank you!

displayContributions.jsEdit

As an alternative to pasting the whole thing in global.js, you could use the long-form of importScript():

Addison's Walk (Dublin) moved to draftspaceEdit

An article you recently created, Addison's Walk (Dublin), does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 06:16, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

@CASSIOPEIA: Thanks but I probably will never get around to it; this was all content that I removed from Addison's Walk which wasn't relevant because it was about the wrong walk. Mvolz (talk) 09:54, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
Hi Mvolz, Greetings to you. Kindly place {{Db-g7}} on top of the page for deletion and place "deletion request my author on the summary edit" before click save. Thank you. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 10:01, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Project Tagging - Your help is needed

Thanks to Earwig and his bot some articles had our project banner placed on their pages - this will let us monitor and support these articles better.

Editing News #1—July 2019Edit

Read this in another languageSubscription list for this multilingual newsletter

Did you know?

Did you know that you can use the visual editor on a mobile device?

Every article has a pencil icon at the top. Tap on the pencil icon   to start editing.

Edit Cards

This is what the new Edit Cards for editing links in the mobile visual editor look like. You can try the prototype here: 📲 Try Edit Cards.

Welcome back to the Editing newsletter.

Since the last newsletter, the team has released two new features for the mobile visual editor and has started developing three more. All of this work is part of the team's goal to make editing on mobile web simpler.

Before talking about the team's recent releases, we have a question for you:

Are you willing to try a new way to add and change links?

If you are interested, we would value your input! You can try this new link tool in the mobile visual editor on a separate wiki.

Follow these instructions and share your experience:

📲 Try Edit Cards.

Recent releasesEdit

The mobile visual editor is a simpler editing tool, for smartphones and tablets using the mobile site. The Editing team has recently launched two new features to improve the mobile visual editor:

  1. Section editing
    • The purpose is to help contributors focus on their edits.
    • The team studied this with an A/B test. This test showed that contributors who could use section editing were 1% more likely to publish the edits they started than people with only full-page editing.
  2. Loading overlay
    • The purpose is to smooth the transition between reading and editing.

Section editing and the new loading overlay are now available to everyone using the mobile visual editor.

New and active projectsEdit

This is a list of our most active projects. Watch these pages to learn about project updates and to share your input on new designs, prototypes and research findings.

  • Edit cards: This is a clearer way to add and edit links, citations, images, templates, etc. in articles. You can try this feature now. Go here to see how: 📲Try Edit Cards.
  • Mobile toolbar refresh: This project will learn if contributors are more successful when the editing tools are easier to recognize.
  • Mobile visual editor availability: This A/B test asks: Are newer contributors more successful if they use the mobile visual editor? We are collaborating with 20 Wikipedias to answer this question.
  • Usability improvements: This project will make the mobile visual editor easier to use.  The goal is to let contributors stay focused on editing and to feel more confident in the editing tools.

Looking aheadEdit

  • Wikimania: Several members of the Editing Team will be attending Wikimania in August 2019. They will lead a session about mobile editing in the Community Growth space. Talk to them about how editing can be improved.
  • Talk Pages: In the coming months, the Editing Team will begin improving talk pages and communication on the wikis.

Learning moreEdit

The VisualEditor on mobile is a good place to learn more about the projects we are working on. The team wants to talk with you about anything related to editing. If you have something to say or ask, please leave a message at Talk:VisualEditor on mobile.

Melissa A. Wilson Sayres moved to draftspaceEdit

An article you recently created, Melissa A. Wilson Sayres, does not have information as written to show that the subject meets the relevant criterion WP:PROF. It needs citations to her actual peer-reviewed scientific papers, not just to reports of them in non-professional sources, and indication that they have been influential. Influence in WP:PROF is normally shown by the extent ot citations to the person's published work, for which the most convenient source is often Google Scholar 'In particular, my preliminary analysis of this data shows that her most heavily cited papers are those where she is one of a great many co-authors, sometimes more than 100. In such cases, it is necessary to figure out her role. I've found the first step is to see if she was an independent researcher at the time of the work.

I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

Digital media use and mental health FA nomEdit

Hello. I noted you were a member of Wikiproject Parenting. I was hoping you might have the time or interest to consider helping me with a review of this article that I nominated. The recent DYK may be of interest as well. Disclaimer, I'm an uncle 4x over but not yet a parent :) --[E.3][chat2][me] 16:04, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
