Speedy deletion nomination of New Distribution CapabilityEdit

Speedy deletion nomination of G-Worldwide EntertainmentEdit

This label is notable because it's meets [[[WP:AUD]] and WP:GNG requirements and it is said "if an article passes one it notable" --Bello96 (talk) 13:26, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi, understood but the recent deletion discussion disagreed. An administrator will review the article to see if substantial new information has been added. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 13:30, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for raising this SPI, but on investigating I found an older sockmaster and an existing SPI at WP:Sockpuppet investigations/FilmMakers00023.

André Laug (company)Edit

Ar you sure about your template? I was quickly looking at it and it looks to me there is enough at least for a standard deletion procedure.--Alexmar983 (talk) 14:10, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi, what do you mean by a "standard deletion procedure"? Do you mean a prod, or an AFD, or a different speedy deletion criteria? OnionRing (talk) 14:11, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
sorry I am not a super experct of deletions in enwiki (on itwiki, frwiki and dewiki I am, but not here). If you use "slang" without links I am not 99% sure, but I guess it is what is called an "Articles for deletion (AfD) discussion", I had that in mind. I've left a small message in Talk:André Laug (company).--Alexmar983 (talk) 14:28, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
Apologies for my use of slang. Yes, by "prod or AFD" I meant WP:Proposed deletion or an Articles for deletion (AfD) discussion. If it were merely a question of notability, then yes an AFD would be appropriate, but the article is blatant WP:SPAM, so speedy deletion is the better choice. OnionRing (talk) 14:35, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
that's no spam. It is a description. If you want to reduce some part, help yourself, I am starting to read it, but a deletion is too hard. --Alexmar983 (talk) 14:41, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
Perhaps it's hard to detect for someone whose second language is English: I would find spam difficult to detect in French or Spanish, certainly. But the whole article needs a rewrite, per WP:CSF#G11. OnionRing (talk) 14:44, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
I still don't think it is so critical, I speak English since I am 8 years old (I can imitate even the accents), and I come form itWikipedia which is one of the less inclusive wikipedia in the world. The style is not so bad, it mainly centers on past events and it actually relies on the sources. See also Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Fashion#Andr.C3.A9_Laug_.28company.29, they have just pinged me.--Alexmar983 (talk) 15:13, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Mark as patrolledEdit

If you have tagged a new page for speedy deletion (like Wildstylerecords or HDI youth marketeers), can you please also mark the page as patrolled? No further action should be needed by other patrollers, so this helps avoid unnecessary work for others. Cheers. Kolbasz (talk) 06:43, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your review!Edit

Hi OnionRing, thank you for your quick and positive review of the Freedom Nyamubaya stub, and for helping with clean up! As someone who's had her share at pushing back on patrollers and admins who have tended to put (faulty) speedy deletion notices on work from and of the Global South and/or women, I'm deeply appreciative of your fair and balanced work. In appreciation, Anasuyas (talk) 19:01, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the editing on the R9-Arms submachine gun articleEdit

First off, thanks for the editing. It's my first article and I have a few questions.

1: There is information that is cited in the sources, but is factually incorrect. However, there are no good sources to back up the correct version. The most technical information available is from a reddit thread. Is there anything I can do?

2: I reverted the removal of the Speculation as to the gun's origin section, sourced it (I finally figured out how to do inline citations) and edited it to follow WP:BLP. Is this acceptable, or is the problem larger than I thought?

Thanks again Astor Thrope (talk) 16:05, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi. The source looks good for that last section. Regarding the problem with incorrect info in sources, how do we know that they're incorrect? We need to be able to WP:VERIFY any contentious claims, and unfortunately personal knowledge is considered WP:Original research which is not allowed on Wikipedia. Reddit is also not considered to be a WP:Reliable source. So we have to stick with what we can verify for now. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 16:13, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
Glad the last section is good. As for the problem with incorrect information, there isn't anything too glaring. There that could be said that is left off, and only really one thing that is flat out untrue (the gun doesn't take Uzi mags, they just look a lot like Uzi mags). I'm not sure if I should leave it as is or remove the reference to it using Uzi mags, especially considering that the only source to the contrary is personal knowledge. I'm leaving it as is for now, but it just sorta bothers me that it's wrong. Astor Thrope (talk) 19:39, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

For the Barnstar...Edit

I repaired your cut n paste moveEdit

  Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Aftermath (Muse) a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Aftermath (Muse song). This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thank you. — Diannaa (talk) 22:34, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi. I am autoconfirmed, but as I'm not an admin I couldn't move the new article over the 2-edit redirect. Yes, I could have requested the non-controversial move at RFM, but since I was merging a brand new article to a redirect, there was no edit history lost, and I credited the new article in my edit summary. It was a case of WP:BOLD. If that's a problem, then feel free to revert and insist I do an RFM. But I can't really see the point in this case. I have no other similar moves in my edit history, so no need for a RFHM either. OnionRing (talk) 23:37, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
I already undid your cut n paste move and moved the page properly. Please don't take shortcuts of this kind. Here's a better shortcut: Let me know on my talk page and I will promptly move the page for you. — Diannaa (talk) 21:11, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Brendan DasseyEdit


Sorry I do not know how to respond via Wikipedia - I have spent the day repurposing it and adding more citations and removing bias - I posted on Reddit to see what sort of response the piece would get - I do think you are being quite presumptuous, as you will note I have painstakingly gone through the piece to ensure everything is corroborated and added the correct references.

I did not respond to you because I dont know how to navigate Wikipedia as yet and have only worked it out now - I thought your offer was very generous I just didnt know how to take you up on it.

Please dont think I have an agenda except to ensure there is a profile for Brendan Dassey in its own right on Wikipedia, Redditt is a rabbit hole and I put it up for response nothing more.

Close Connection notification in my new articleEdit

Hello there, OnionRing. Thank you for your feedback on my first article here in Wikipedia - Humberto Silva.

I'm here to respond to your claim that my article has a conflict of interest, because I may be related in some way with the person in which the article is about. I understand the reason that leads you to think it, probably because of my username includes a lastname that is the same as the person of the article, that lastname being Silva. But that lastname is maybe one of the most common name in Brazil and, both me and the person who I wrote the article about, are from that same country. But that's the only related thing that I have in common with the person of the article. I repeat, I'm not related with the person Humberto Silva in any manner, we are simply from the same country and share a very common lastname.

Again I appreciate your review and feedback on my article, I'm very much open for more discussion that can lead me to became a better Wikipedian! Julio.frasneli.silva (talk) 17:09, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

Hello.I'm glad to hear you have no connection to Mr Silva, but it wasn't on the basis of the surname alone than I guessed a conflict of interest: the tone of the article is highly promotional throughout, and there are several unsourced claims. Let's try to improve the article. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 17:58, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

I'm just letting you know that I declined your deletion request for 3d hologram pyramid, a page that you tagged for speedy deletion, under criterion A1 because the criterion you used or the reason you gave does not cover this kind of page. It was a badly written article, but it gave enough context to identify its subject, namechecking two manufacturers. Please take a moment to look at the suggested tasks for patrollers, criteria for speedy deletion, and particularly, the section covering non-criteria. Such pages are best tagged with proposed deletion or proposed deletion for biographies of living persons, or sent to the appropriate deletion discussion.

Hi OnionRing, thanks for adding the other appropriate CSD tag. I have a question: it appears this article has been recreated a few times today after being deleted.

Percy Rivington PyneEdit

There are SIX men that have bore the name. I had listed all six. You have eliminated PRP III. Any historical reason why? Also you have directed Percy Rivington Pyne II (1857 - 1929) AND Percy Rivington Pyne 2nd (1882 - 1950) to the SAME article. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME PERSON. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rbabecki (talkcontribs) 20:49, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

Chaudry Muhammad AliEdit

Hi there, I've noticed you tagging new articles as CSD:A7 within about a minute of them having being created, in the future try to give the such pages around 10 minutes before tagging and also please make a background check of the article for notability. In the instance of for example, the person is indeed notable and has their own wikipedia page already which you can find here, this would make the page you tagged as A7 more appropriately an A10 (Duplicate page). In any case this is just a heads up to do a quick google search of any article you're about to tag regardless of how little content there is, obviously I do not count attack pages or blatant hoaxes in these situations, tag those immediately if you find them (G10 and G3). Have a good day Mr rnddude (talk) 14:01, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi, have a look at his talk page: all he's done is post up vanity pages. I do normally wait 10 minutes, unless it's obviously a repeat post or an obvious case of someone misplacing their user page. I've tried userfying pages like this, but most often they get deleted by admins. OnionRing (talk) 14:03, 15 June 2016 (UTC)
I see, I actually didn't think to check their userpage, shows how good my checks are eh? Mr rnddude (talk) 14:05, 15 June 2016 (UTC)
No worries mate, there are a lot of trigger-happy NPP editors bashing potentially good articles a minute after they've been started by new editors, but I do try hard to keep to the spirit as well as the letter of the guidelines. I also try to clean up new articles where a quick cleanup will prevent a G11 or a BLP prod. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 14:08, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Conflict of InterestEdit

Hello, OnionRing! Thanks so much for the message. This is the first time I've contributed to Wikipedia so I apologize for my ignorance! Just wanted to follow up with a couple questions: I do have a conflict of interest as a member of the band (although the username is intended to represent myself as an individual rather than the band as an organization), is there any way for the text to be reviewed by a third party like yourself to ensure that it's not "whitewashing" or "promotional" or otherwise in violation of guidelines?

My primary reason for writing the article this morning was to clear up confusion between "The Mallett Brothers Band" and my father David Mallett, who has an existing wikipedia page, due to a recent unexplained increase in the number of older folks showing up to our shows thinking they were seeing our father... a quandary for us, him and them.

Let me know if there's any way to clear that up; I do work for The Mallett Brothers Band, for full disclosure; but if there's any way an editor could check the text out or find another solution that would work without violating any guidelines, that would be amazing; otherwise, I totally understand the policy, no worries at all and thanks again.

Wdmallett (talk) 17:54, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

There's nothing overly promotional in the article at the moment, but I would suggest that you avoid editing the article further. Let someone unconnected with your band do it. If you're notable, they will eventually. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 17:58, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Srabonti Narmeen AliEdit

Hi OnionRing! Yes I did create an identical account under the name Srabonti Narmin Ali, but I realized later that the spelling of the latter was mistaken. If we could keep the page for Srabonti Narmeen Ali, and delete the other Srabonti Narmin Ali, that would be great. As for the references, I added two links at the bottom but was unable to create a separate References section. Sorry I am new to Wikipedia and trying to get a hang of this thing. You could edit it if you like and add in a References section with the two links I posted. Let me know what I need to do. Thanks.

Edit warring at Gold Line (Los Angeles Metro)Edit

Thanks for your edits at the above page, but it appears you may have unintentionally edit warred. Per BRD, it's probably best to take the discussion to the talk page at this point.

I reverted once, and then edited his broken link. I wasn't planning to edit it again, but what I've done so far isn't exactly edit warring. The new editor in question has been creating empty articles with misspelled titles. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 15:17, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

Copyright Violation on Company Logo Monster MotoEdit

Hi, I appreciate the welcome and the help on editing the Monster Moto page. I added the company logo, however it was removed for copyright violation. I believe because it was applied under the CC license incorrectly. Since I am not autoconfirmed yet, I was hoping for a little help on how I should properly add the Company Logo to the page? While it is trademarked, it is obviously available for fair use so we'd like to make it available on Wikipedia. What is my best course of action? Thanks!

Thank you for contacting me about the page for the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) at You said to me "you may find it difficult to write about that topic in a neutral and objective way, because you are, work for, or represent, the subject of that article." This is just to confirm that I am not the IASH, I do not work for IASH, I do not represent IASH, and I am not the subject of the article. I happen to work in Edinburgh where IASH is based, and I have attended a couple of IASH events. I don't think, however, that this adds up to a conflict of interest.

@Xx236: No, you have it completely backwards. I removed a db-nocontext added by a trigger-happy NPP to a new article which was completely clear about its subject. It's an unreferenced one-line stub, but rather than whine at me on my talk page about how it's "one of the worst pages in this Wikipedia", did it occur to you to Google for it? The first article returned says that it's one of the most important sites in Iran for an endemic species. If the creator's writing autobiographies, then deal with that separately. OnionRing (talk) 09:10, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi. It was originally just a paste of marketing from their website, bud the article creator did a complete rewrite, so I let the removal of the speedy tag slide.

Ritmo (musician)Edit

Hi, I've re-writen everything, used a language that suit for wikipedia , I added more references, I removed everything that looks like a promotion, and I compared it and took reference from 5 other musician from the same genre. I do not understand what is promotional if I have external third party articles and information that comes from leading magazines of the musical genre....

No, I'm not. I think there are many psytrance artists that should be in wikipedia as a source of information. I do love his work and music style and I'm a fan of the psychedelic music scene, plus we are from the same town and I know his work, but I do not know him in person. that's why I choose to write about him. It was much more comfortable for me to start a wikipedia page on him instead of a huge psytrance atists. can you please remove it from speedy deletion, and check that I did really changed a lot of the content...— Preceding unsigned comment added by ElectronicWiki (talkcontribs) 10:35, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
All you've removed is this. It's still highly promotional. OnionRing (talk) 12:25, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply, I just want to let you know that I edited the article on my computer localy and in the sandbox that's why you don't have the log file of the edits I've done and just this text deletion I did. I have a copy of both articles there are way much more change than that. this is just a small change I did earlier so the page won't be promotional at all, I can assure you that if you have read the first article and this article you would notice a huge change. I think that I did broke few rules (not by purpose) in the first article, but I did change a lot in the second one this I can promise. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ElectronicWiki (talkcontribs) 12:40, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

South Australian Railways CSDsEdit

I see several CSD's relating to South Australian Railways. On one hand, these might be a little premature, as the editor just started working on them today. On the other hand, I am firmly of the belief that while we use to allow "under construction" and mainspace years ago, that's no longer accepted practice especially given the existence of draft space.

One option is to contact the editor note that they should not be creating articles this way, urged them to start such articles in draft space and only move them into mainspace when they are far enough along to meet our standards.

In some cases, it might be polite to offer to move these incomplete articles to draft space for them, although I'll understand if you think it would be less work to blow them away and urged the editors to start over.

This is a new editor's would like to approach the editor in a positive way. What do you think?--S Philbrick(Talk) 15:23, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Hello. Yes I definitely agree on moving them to draft. It looks he was trying to populate the redlinks at South Australian Railways#SAR steam locomotives. You might have seen that I offered him some help at User talk:Jjbm2011#Please slow down, with a pointer to a good train article to use as as template. But I'm happy to help with draftifying (if that's a real word) those stub articles. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 15:28, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

He has won 3 back to back Asian titles and that is a remarkable achievement! and what do you think, representing a nation is not a remarkable achievement.(Wikipediaarticles1 (talk) 12:17, 23 June 2016 (UTC))

Hello Smithzv31. Unfortunately Wikipedia is legally obliged to remove or cover up any content that's under copyright. If you are the owner of the content, please see WP:IOWN for more information. You're welcome to ask back here if any of that isn't clear. In the meantime, I'll cover up the page until the copyright issue is sorted. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 15:45, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

If we just delete that section so I can continue to work on that page... Is that ok or? Basically I am told what to put wiki and then its my job to edit and source all the material. Let me know, Smithzv31Smithzv31 (talk) 16:20, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

Ok well I guess I still believe in presenting all sides to every story (as mythical is that may seem). So what would you recommend so we can have this content up. I requested an edit. Any other tips? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Smithzv31 (talkcontribs) 23:11, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi OnionRing. Thanks for G4-tagging Shylaja Chetlur. We have a little script, User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js, that checks to see if a page has been previously deleted or discussed at AfD; if it has, deletionFinder.js provides links to the deletion log and/or AfDs to the right of the article title. Install it by adding the following to your common.js or your skin script file: {{subst:js|User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js}}, save and bypass your browser cache. For an example go to Emil Nielsen where, to the right of the article title, you see the blue prev dels and prev AfDs links when the script has been been loaded. Regards, Sam Sailor Talk! 10:07, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Hello, OnionRing, I placed an "excessively long quote" at the end of the music video table for the article I created titled, Prisoner (Steve Angello song). Obviously, you recognized the "excessively long quote," and purged it from the page. Well that "excessively long quote" was there for a reason, otherwise, it presumably would not have been placed there. That "excessively long quote" was used to help divulge the music video's description, while simultaneously, it also provided information as to when, where and how the video's concept was conceived and created. By now, you should already know that Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia, not a concise summary to some book; and therefore no information, not even a "quote," is too "excessive." Removing an informative quote for being too "excessive," is, I believe, superfluous, and ultimately childish. Here on Wikipedia, I've seen an abundance of "excessive" quotes. In fact, I've even seen excessively "excessive" quotes. But nevertheless, I did not see those quotes be withdrawn from their page, nor did I see someone else, someone like you so to speak, remove them from their page. Therefore I give birth to this question in its partially informal context: isn't there someone else's page to "edit" for having a quote that's too "excessive" within them ??? Because like I stated before, I've seen many "excessive" quotes in other articles that are not being removed. To culminate this letter, I say to you: I do not appreciate your judgemental edit to the Prisoner (Steve Angello song) article that I created. Though, I would appreciate it if you would return the quote to the page you found it in, regardless of your overall opinion of the quote. Thank you. Sincerely, Infopage100 Infopage100 (talk) 09:12, 24 June 2016 (UTC)User:Infopage100Infopage100 (talk) 09:12, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

It's neither childish nor judgmental, it's a matter of editorial policy, as noted at WP:LONGQUOTE. It was about a quarter of the article, and also mildly promotional: better for the article to be written from a WP:Neutral point of view than to give the song's author free reign to talk about how important the song is. A concise summary of that quote, referenced, is still a good idea though. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 10:35, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Fine......... ē_ē. I guess that sounds like a good idea. You could have done that though instead of deleting the whole entire quote. :/ Infopage100 (talk) 00:23, 25 June 2016 (UTC)Infopage100Infopage100 (talk) 00:23, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

And indeed I would have, if you'd referenced it. I see the article is still mostly unreferenced, with no indication of how the song is notable per WP:NSONG. OnionRing (talk) 12:05, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

Though.... how does clarifying a song's importance breach the system of NPOV??? I'm not necessarily taking to one side of the story, I'm simply putting out "neutral" information. User:Infopage100 (talk, contributions) Infopage100 (talk) 15:45, 25 June 2016 (UTC)User:Infopage100Infopage100 (talk) 15:45, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

Clarifying a song's importance needn't breach the guidelines for WP:NPOV. But as I wrote above, the artist isn't the most objective person for the task. WP:NSONG describes the right ways to show how a song is notable: multiple, WP:Secondary coverage in WP:Reliable sources, evidence that the song charted, etc.

Dispero Ras SientoEdit

Hello my friend no i am not write like a fun :) , i am reporter here in greece and i write a many articles in magazines , this is my first article in wikipedia and i write an article for Dispero Ras Siento step by step.... thank you Natasha Pap (talk) 4:22, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Hello Natasha. I'm sure your intentions are the very best, but the language of the article is not quite written from a WP:Neutral point of view, which along with the large amount of detail does indeed make the encyclopaedia article resemble a fan page or a music magazine article. Am I correct in guessing that you're a music journalist? Let's work to improve the article. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 13:30, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Ok if you can help me with this i am be thankful about you :) so , how you believe is the best way for this WP:Neutral point of view , i mean i am not good to write an article with all this codes but i try Natasha Pap (talk) 4:47, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Wooow you are very very very good i am trying to read all this and you are fix it in 5 minite i am trying to fix it in 5 monts :p heheh but the corect word of Greece is Hellas. Natasha Pap (talk) 4:58, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Hellas is indeed correct, but almost never used by English speakers. We also use Great Britain in preference to Albion, except in poetry. OnionRing (talk) 14:02, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

And you clean all references thank you very much cause was to much :p i check now step by step and i want to ask you about the beggining you delete something about the styles with the music and how it ok like that? cause in and other site this guys is write little be different ...i am sorry for my english :p Natasha Pap (talk) 5:09, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Αγγλικά σας είναι πολύ καλύτερη από ό, τι τα ελληνικά μου. :-) Yes, that's right, the style used on magazines and music websites like Last.FM is just fine for their purposes, but on Wikipedia we're asked to use a style that's less journalistic, and more neutral. Magazines are looking to convey "impact", but we want to just tell the facts in a neutral tone. I also notice that a lot of the sources cited are blogs, which are not really WP:Reliable sources. Let's try to improve those. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 14:15, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Heheheh :) your hellenic is good . So i have 2 more site to put in references do you want to send this here? or to i put to article and you see it..? Natasha Pap (talk) 5:20, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Thank you. You could create the articles as drafts, so we could make them really good before they're published. To make a draft, let's use an example: if you were going to create an article called Imam Baildi Greatest Thrash Metal Party Mixes, you can create a draft by simply calling it Draft:Imam Baildi Greatest Thrash Metal Party Mixes. Once it's finished, we then move it to the main article space. Easy. OnionRing (talk) 14:25, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Before i move it to article space i create this article in sandbox but now is not good to delete and start from the beggin cause i start to write about the cd/album . Natasha Pap (talk) 5:31, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

I have a question about the beginning of article this "orphan" and that you write about "fans write view" can we fix it? and tomorow i put more references with they way you teach me to i write :) Natasha Pap (talk) 5:41, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Remove deletion for Michael Topschij PageEdit

The Michael Topschij page has been nominated for deletion. The person has thousands of followers on twitter, and has developed several well received mobile applications in addition to owning two companies at the age of 20. He has featured in multiple articles in the news and national television. He has also received promotion from his university and other notable sources. Jakelongley16 (talk) 03:37, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

Michael Topschij page has been deletedEdit

The Michael Topschij page has been deleted with no valid reason, the re-posted content added several new sources and yet this was not noticed at all by an admin. Those that said delete did not make any mention of the various news articles, and one even commented that he had 3000 followers when he currently has over 7,000.

Hi, OnionRing. Several days ago you have deleted my article "Roundme" due to unambigious advertising matter. I want to let you know, that I understood my fault and rewrote the article in a neutral manner. After doing so I wanted to publish my newly created article again but saw that "protection lock" on my original way of creation. The system directed me to "talk page" with you to solve the dispute.

Looking forward to hearing from you, Helen Helen roundme (talk) 16:01, 26 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi Helen. You appear to have reposted Roundme a third account at, and that was deleted too as spam. I strongly suggest that you read WP:Conflict of interest, and stop writing about your company.

Declined speedy deletionEdit

With great reluctance, I have declined your speedy deletion nomination of Etika, and substituted a WP:PROD. You said that it duplicated the article Ethics, but one is about the philosophical concept ethics, while the other is about a word which is used to refer to that concept, and the word "etika" is not even mentioned in the article Ethics, nor should it be. In my opinion we should have a speedy deletion criterion which covers articles of this sort, but we don't, so we'll just have to let the article linger for a week until the PROD to expires, I'm afraid. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 11:54, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Not a problem, I take your point and I think you've done the right thing. Thanks for letting me know. OnionRing (talk) 11:55, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
Actually, I have now realised there is a better way to deal with this. I have added a mention of Malay to the Wiktionary page on etika, and I shall now delete the Wikipedia article as a page which has been transwikied. While I'm here, I will take the opportunity to mention that for some time now I have been noticing your work in relation to new pages, and I think you are doing a very good job. From the speed with which you got going successfully, and the knowledge you have of how Wikipedia Works, I guess you must have edited before you created this account, either as an IP editor or from another account. Am I right? The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 12:09, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

I'm intrigued by the idea of being "guiltified" into creating an account.

Need advice with someone editing articlesEdit

While I have been doing my best to keep articles un-biased and allowing multiple sources there seems to be a person who continuously removes content and purposefully removes articles because they purely "don't like" the company that makes the product.

Dear OnionRing,Thank you for reviewing my article on Nakajima Hiroyuki. I just made adjustments to the articles text, however, there isn't much I can do about the locations and exhibitions he's done. Can you please review the text again. Also, what part of the article contains wording that promotes the subject in a subjective manner without imparting real information?

I have complied with every request made. Its been over 4 weeks that the article was created. Can you please help me? The link is below.

I have also been in touch with PRehse, an experienced Wikipedian specializing in Japanese martial arts. He has been a tremendous help in teaching me how the system works and provided numerous suggestions to help improve my article (which I've taken). Please let me know if there is anything that can be done. Thank you so much for your time, help, and consideration. Hope to hear from you soon. Nihon-no-budo (talk) 14:34, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

Hello NBD, thanks for working on the draft. As the reviewer noted, what's missing is in-depth, WP:Secondary coverage of the man. Japanese references are fine, they don't need to be in English. Good luck, OnionRing (talk) 14:41, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
Actually I think it now does. There were several references added since it was last declined that are independent from the subject and cover it in more depth. I have never been involved in the AfC process preferring to get involved after articles make it to article space but in this case I am quite surprised it was returned to draft. There are numbers of articles that are copy pasted to article space from declined drafts that remain. I advised Nihon-no-budo to wait to see what the next round brings - perhaps that will drive me into the AfC process.Peter Rehse (talk) 15:39, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
Hm, I only diffed it from the last submission. You're right, it could have been accepted on the basis of the secondary sources added since it was moved to draft. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 15:41, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your input OnionRing and PRehse. So what happens next? Do you have the ability to approve the article? How about LaMona or Dodger67 who were the last ones to decline the article? Can they approve the article now that is has been updated? Thank you all for your help by they way. I appreciate your patience. Nihon-no-budo (talk) 17:38, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
I'm not an administrator and I don't normally do draft reviews. But I see on the draft page that it's already been submitted for review again, so I assume that should happen relatively quickly. If I can make that happen quicker, perhaps @PRehse: can suggest how, as I'm new to reviewing. OnionRing (talk) 17:45, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your quick response OnionRing! Cool name by the way! :-) Nihon-no-budo (talk) 17:48, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
You're welcome! And thank you for the compliment - onion rings are nature's most nearly perfect food. :-) OnionRing (talk) 17:50, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

G12 thanksEdit

Just want to thank you for your copyvio hunts. Really important work. It should be new pages patrollers' first inquiry but so often it's not even considered (even when absurdly obvious). By the way, I partially declined your tagging of PUPHAM-RCG. Schools are exempted from A7. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 16:58, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

That's very kind of you to say, thanks. A7 for PUPHAM-RCG was a bit of a gray area: it's a training centre, not quite a school. But that grayness means that you were as right to take it off as I was to add it. :-) OnionRing (talk) 17:02, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

Mandrem BeachEdit

Hello, I'm Fluckollin. Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, so i edited the page as per my view and tried to be as neutral as possible. It is a page regarding a public place which was not there on Wikipedia, so I started it. Every new page mostly have view of the person who start it, and then when other people edit it, it comes to neutral view point. So As per me if you don’t like it you should edit it and not delete other peoples work. Thank you and I would like to know problem in the page so I can edit it. Thank you again. Fluckollin (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 10:28, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

I have deleted the overtly promotional content, most of which was either unreferenced or referenced only by tourism promotion websites. As it stands now, the page is no longer promotional, but please stick to a WP:Neutral point of view: subjective terms like "beautiful", "one of the most famous", etc. are a matter of opinion. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 10:33, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Flyve MDM / Uhuru MobileEdit

Dear OnionRing,

It is nice seeing someone so active on Wikipedia and especially on Uhuru Mobile and Flyve MDM pages.

First, let me explain you the situation: Flyve MDM is a new product and Uhuru Mobile is developed by a new Editor.

Concerning Flyve MDM, the source codes will be released only in autumn : this is why its Wikipedia page is an orphan, relies on upon a single source and on primary sources. Once the codes would be released, those issues will be corrected. Indeed, more references will be added and more contributor will participate to the Wikipedia page.

Then, when we have written the article we stayed neutral by writing only facts and by describing features. Can you explain us what content is considered as an advertisement on both pages?

We will be glad to modify our content (we already did it for Flyve MDM) if the problems are clearly identified. Can you help us ? Teclib-Edition (talk) 10:31, 5 July 2016 (UTC) (Teclib-Edition)

Who is "we", please? Are you operating the account on behalf of a group? And have you read WP:Conflict of interest yet? The articles you've created are highly promotional for your company's products, and are likely to get deleted for that reason. OnionRing (talk) 10:35, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
Dear OnionRing,

“We” is a community of contributors working on open source solutions. We have read WP:Conflict of interest, COI is strongly discouraged and yet not forbidden. Someone has to create the article before any contributors can participate in the content’s redaction/modification. If the content is highly promotional, show us what is bothering you, I am sure we can rephrase the sentences while explaining what the software are about. Teclib-Edition (talk) 11:21, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Please don't edit articles about your company, and please don't edit as a WP:ROLE account on behalf of a group. If your company's products are notable, then someone will write about them eventually. OnionRing (talk) 11:23, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Mark S.GuralnickEdit

Dear OnionRing,

I'm hoping to gain some guidance from you on the page.Why is this writing considered promotional?

Arsha AghdasiEdit

hi.thank you for all your help in Arsha Aghdasi I am new in Wikipedia and I'm just trying to help my friend Arsha for making a page on Wikipedia. He is a famous Stuntman in Iran. I used some valuable sites as sorce, but this article is still nominated for deletion. Would you please tell me what is wrong with my page? And what should I do for fixed it? Setareh Malek (talk) 12:39, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi, and you're very welcome for the help. The problem is that the article needs WP:Reliable sources to show how he's notable. Blogs aren't considered reliable sources for this, so what's needed is newspaper articles, book references, maybe a television clip if you can find that online, and so on. It doesn't have to be in English - Farsi or any language is fine. I have dug around online, and can't find much. Perhaps it's too early in his career for an article. But best of luck to you, and to Mr. Aghdasi. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 12:45, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Im so grateful for your help , thanks. Yes I can show you lots of his video on TV,(Iran television) including his reviews and performance (specially in Khandevane which is a very popular show in Iran) And I can name many newspaper and magazines that interview with him, but I don't know how should I link newspapers and videos in Wikipedia? For newspapers is that OK if I just name them and write date? Setareh Malek (talk) 13:39, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Online is best, but if you only have access to the article on paper, then just write down the name and date. If you're not sure how to do it, then just put it in the "External links" section for now, and we'll work out how to turn it into a reference later. By the way, please don't post your replies at the top of this page: post them down here. Thanks, OnionRing (talk) 13:42, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks again I will do that very soon, just give me some time please. And OK, I'm sorry for that.thanks. Setareh Malek (talk) 14:00, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Is that OK to link online video from any sites like youtube or Iranian video share site like ? And how many links I'm allowed to put in external links? Setareh Malek (talk) 16:15, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Just put in the best you can find for now. OnionRing (talk) 16:33, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

The Veggie PimpsEdit

Hi OnionRing, I've one-upped your prod template, and requested speedy deletion. The article began as a cut and paste of articles about other bands--there's never been anything substantive there to suggest notability. Cheers, 2601:188:1:AEA0:65F5:930C:B0B2:CD63 (talk) 14:45, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi, yeah I looked at the history before prodding - clearly the reason it wasn't speedied on creation was that the cut & paste slipped past the NPP. The creator of Guilherme wolf tried the same technique yesterday, so it went from db-a10, to draft (upon request for more time at the talk page), then recreation of the actual article about him, to db-a7. It's been re-created again today. The reason I prodded rather than speedied is that it's been around so long, that admins prefer to prod or AFD (or redirect etc.) The COI creator has long since ceased editing from their giveaway corporate account name. Same editor, new account? Maybe. OnionRing (talk) 14:53, 7 July 2016 (UTC)


Thank you for your help. I've used and added to other wikipedia pages for years. This is the first time I created a page. Can you tell me if I need to adjust the formatting or anything on Christopher Hoban's page. I got a weird message from wikipedia and I am not sure what I am doing wrong. For NYC, Officer Hoban is a hero.

Marlene718 (talk) 00:24, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi, Marlene. The Christopher Hoban article is looking good, and don't worry about that weird message you got. It was just an automatic program called XLinkBot that reverts an edit if editors try to add a reference that's on its list of bad sources for references. In your case, it was YouTube. There's nothing wrong with YouTube on its own, but it's usually not a WP:Reliable source. XLinkBot would have done the same if you'd tried to use Facebook as a reference. But one of my many rules in life is "never worry about offending a robot." :-) OnionRing (talk) 04:30, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Inthebalk userEdit

Hi, sorry to disturb. Could you help me check for possible sockpuppet user User:Inthebalk for his edit on this page?: List of countries by years of tertiary schooling

I usually edit the page South Korea, and I noticed his actions were similar to user User:Massyparcer. His action involves creating new pages and always adding South Korea at the top of the list, occasionally with false info. This is his Sockpuppet investigations page: Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Massyparcer/Archive - (talk) 11:23, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Re: Ryushin Shouchi RyuEdit

Just wanted to update you on the progress of the Ryushin Shouchi Ryu entry. Last night it was rejected again for lack of sources, so I decided delete the contents of the draft and rewrite it. I realized that the entry contained two biographies of LIVING instructors, which of course, by wiki standards requires an extreme about of references (learned this with the Nakajima Hiroyuki entry last week). Now the entry only includes some history of the Tenshinsho Jigen Ryu (which I edited (rewrote) earlier this week) and of course history on the Ryushin Shouch Ryu. It has been up overnight and I hope it stays up, its been quite the roller coaster ride. I would like to think you again for your help and guidance through this process. I saw that you reviewed all of my entries. I will continue to work on improving them. Thank you, Nihon-no-budo (talk) 13:46, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

Blocked page and users for article Isover Multi-Comfort houseEdit

W5296 (talk) 07:35, 19 July 2016 (UTC)Hi, k.mancheva have created this page ( and now it is blocked. Her purpose wаs to have English version of this useful page>

. The content should be the same, but just in English. Because of this I edit the page, which wasn‘t according to your policy. If it is need you can delete this page, because some of information is not correct to Wikipedia policy. Then if everything is ok, she will create the new page with right content (the same as in Bulgarian). The information is not advertisement, this is international contest for all students. Not to be recognized as advertisement we want to remove the name of Isover from title and Saint-Gobain from text. The information is so helpful for all students worldwide and is encyclopedic. The references is from different articles and news published in many countries. So the contest is of global importance.

Want to help test advanced new tools planned for Recent Changes?Edit

I’m reaching out to you because our logs tell us you’re a very active Twinkle user (top 25, actually!). The WMF Collaboration team is working on new tools that we hope will be useful to people engaged in reviewing recent changes, fighting vandalism or supporting new users. We want to test them for usability with editors who are experienced with relevant wiki work. If you’re interested in helping to shape this new technology—we’d like to hear from you.

The testing should take about an hour, will be conducted online, and will take place during the next few weeks. To participate, please email dchen[at] with the subject line Twinkle User. Include the following information:

  • Username
  • Email where we can reach you
  • Your city or time zone
  • Best time to talk to you
  • Your primary use of Twinkle or Recent Changes (e.g., reviewing recent changes, reviewing with a particular focus (specify), anti-vandalism, new-page review, welcoming new users, etc.)

Request to reactivate the deleted pageEdit

Hi Onion ring

I am contacting you regarding the page called "ayesha nazir jatt". It was created and deleted 3 months ago. She contested election on 31st of August where she was contesting against current government. As a result it was a very biased election even though majority of people voted for her. She still lost the election with a very small margin. She exposed the rigging which took place in election by collecting evidence which including seals, ballot papers as well as a video was provided when the votes where being changed in presence of returning officer and other candidate. She held press conference along with other party leaders for exposing the rigging and appearing in talk shows to discuss the case. She demanded recount of votes but they rejected her application because returning officer was also involved in rigging process.

I hope you feel she deserves to be on wiki now. I will update the story further on her page if you allow it to be published.

Few links which may help you to make a decision:

User group: New Page ReviewrEdit

Hello OnionRing.

Based on the patrols you made of new pages during a qualifying period in 2016, your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group, allowing you to review new pages and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or in some cases, tag them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed.

New page reviewing is a vital function for policing the quality of the encylopedia, if you have not already done so, you must read the new tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the various deletion criteria. If you need more help or wish to discuss the process, please join or start a thread at page reviewer talk.

  • Be nice to new users - they are often not aware of doing anything wrong.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted - be formal and polite in your approach to them too, even if they are not.
  • Don't review a page if you are not sure what to do. Just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Remember that quality is quintessential to good patrolling. Take your time to patrol each article, there is no rush. Use the message feature and offer basic advice.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In case of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, the right can be revoked at any time by an administrator. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 01:34, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

New Page Review - newsletterEdit

Hello OnionRing,
Breaking the back of the backlog
We now have 706 New Page Reviewers! Most of you requested the user right to be able to do something about the huge backlog. Now it's time for action.
Mid July to 01 Oct 2016

If each reviewer does only 10 reviews a day over five days, the backlog will be down to zero and the daily input can then be processed by each reviewer doing only 2 or 3 reviews a day - that's about 5 minutes work!
Let's get that over and done with in time to relax for the holidays.

Second set of eyes

Not only are New Page Reviewers the guardians of quality of new articles, they are also in a position to ensure that pages are being correctly tagged for deletion and maintenance and that new authors are not being bitten. This is an important feature of your work. Read about it at the new Monitoring the system section in the tutorial.

Elvis GomesEdit

Hi. I need some help urgently. Let me break this down. A page Elvis Gomes (Political figure from India) was created in 2012. It did not meet Wikipedia criteria and was deleted. Now that the subject has gained some notability, I helped edit a new page Elvis Gomes. On 27 June 2016, I believe you moved Elvis P Gomes (deleted) to Elvis Gomes. Yet the deleted page appears when a browser search is performed. My question is- how do I delete the old article entirely? Or, ensure that the correct article shows up in a search?

New Page Review - newsletter No.2Edit

Hello OnionRing,
A HUGE backlog

We now have 706 New Page Reviewers!
Most of us requested the user right at PERM, expressing a wish to be able to do something about the huge backlog, but the chart on the right does not demonstrate any changes to the pre-user-right levels of October.

Hitting 17,000 soon

The backlog is still steadily growing at a rate of 150 a day or 4,650 a month. Only 20 reviews a day by each reviewer over the next few days would bring the backlog down to a managable level and the daily input can then be processed by each reviewer doing only 2 or 3 reviews a day - that's about 5 minutes work!
It didn't work in time to relax for the Xmas/New Year holidays. Let's see if we can achieve our goal before Easter, otherwise by Thanksgiving it will be closer to 70,000.

Second set of eyes

Remember that we are the only guardians of quality of new articles, we alone have to ensure that pages are being correctly tagged by non-Reviewer patrollers and that new authors are not being bitten.


This is even more important and extra vigilance is required considering Orangemoody, and

  1. this very recent case of paid advertising by a Reviewer resulting in a community ban.
  2. this case in January of paid advertising by a Reviewer, also resulting in a community ban.
  3. This Reviewer is indefinitely blocked for sockpuppetry.

Ram Iyer articleEdit

My article Ram Iyer is being considered for deletion (Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ram Iyer). Ram Iyer is the author of three study guides for the National Geographic Bee, though he is not associated with National Geographic. His son Suneil won 2nd place in the Nationals in 2007. Also, many top NGB competitors have highly recommended his books.

Why no User pageEdit

…and the redirect to your Talk? It helps to have a static snapshot of Users, which Talk pages cannot be, because of continuing additions and archiving. Is there nothing that you wish others to consistently know about your editing or person? Would other users not benefit by seeing a static representation, rather than having to sift through a regularly changing and largely irrelevant Talk page content, to see what you're about? As much as I hated the work of creating such a page, it was done to facilitate the understanding of others. (Note, I have no critique of your work, just wish to understand how certain edits fit into your interests and responsibilities.) Absent real intelligence, one can only guess, and will therefore likely misperceive things. Le Prof Leprof 7272 (talk) 04:11, 3 April 2017 (UTC)

New Page Review - Newsletter No.4Edit

Hello OnionRing,

Since rolling out the right in November, just 6 months ago, we now have 706 reviewers, but the backlog is still mysteriously growing fast. If every reviewer did just 55 reviews, the 22,000 backlog would be gone, in a flash, schwoop, just like that!

But do remember: Rather than speed, quality and depth of patrolling and the use of correct CSD criteria are essential to good reviewing. Do not over-tag. Make use of the message feature to let the creator know about your maintenance tags. See the tutorial again HERE. Get help HERE.

Stay up to date with recent new page developments and have your say, read THIS PAGE.

New Page Reviewer NewsletterEdit

Hello OnionRing, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 18,511 pages. We have worked hard to decrease from over 22,000, but more hard work is needed! Please consider reviewing even just a few pages a a day.
  • Some editors are committing to work specifically on patrolling new pages on 15 July. If you have not reviewed new pages in a while, this might be a good time to be involved. Please remember that quality of patrolling is more important than quantity, that the speedy deletion criteria should be followed strictly, and that ovetagging for minor issues should be avoided.

Technology update:

  • Several requests have been put into Phabractor to increase usability of the New Pages Feed and the Page Curation toolbar. For more details or to suggest improvements go to Wikipedia:Page Curation/Suggested improvements
  • The tutorial has been updated to include links to the following useful userscripts. If you were not aware of them, they could be useful in your efforts reviewing new pages:

Hello OnionRing, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 14304 pages. We have worked hard to decrease from over 22,000, but more hard work is needed! Please consider reviewing even just a few pages a day.
  • Currently there are 532 pages in the backlog that were created by non-autoconfirmed users before WP:ACTRIAL. The NPP project is undertaking a drive to clear these pages from the backlog before they hit the 90 day Google index point. Please consider reviewing a few today!

Technology update:

  • The Wikimedia Foundation is currently working on creating a new filter for page curation that will allow new page patrollers to filter by extended confirmed status. For more information see: T175225

General project update:

  • On 14 September 2017 the English Wikipedia began the autoconfirmed article creation trial. For a six month period, creation of articles in the mainspace of the English Wikipedia will be restricted to users with autoconfirmed status. New users who attempt article creation will now be redirected to a newly designed landing page.
  • Before clicking on a reference or external link while reviewing a page, please be careful that the site looks trustworthy. If you have a question about the safety of clicking on a link, it is better not to click on it.

Hello OnionRing, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 12713 pages. Please consider reviewing even just a few pages each day! If everyone helps out, it will really put a dent in the backlog.
  • Currently the backlog stretches back to March and some pages in the backlog have passed the 90 day Google index point. Please consider reviewing some of them!

Outreach and Invitations:

  • If you know other editors with a good understanding of Wikipedia policy, invite them to join NPP by dropping the invitation template on their talk page with: {{subst:NPR invite}}. Adding more qualified reviewers will help with keeping the backlog manageable.

New Year New Page Review Drive

  • A backlog drive is planned for the start of the year, beginning on January 1st and running until the end of the month. Unique prizes will be given in tiers for both the total number of reviews made, as well as the longest 'streak' maintained.
  • Note: quality reviewing is extremely important, please do not sacrifice quality for quantity.

General project update:

  • ACTRIAL has resulted in a significant increase in the quality of new submissions, with noticeably fewer CSD, PROD, and BLPPROD candidates in the new page feed. However, the majority of the backlog still dates back to before ACTRIAL started, so consider reviewing articles from the middle or back of the backlog.
  • The NPP Browser can help you quickly find articles with topics that you prefer to review from within the backlog.
  • To keep up with the latest conversation on New Pages Patrol or to ask questions, you can go to Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Reviewers and add it to your watchlist.

New Years new page backlog driveEdit

Hello OnionRing, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!

Announcing the NPP New Year Backlog Drive!

We have done amazing work so far in December to reduce the New Pages Feed backlog by over 3000 articles! Now is the time to capitalise on our momentum and help eliminate the backlog!

The backlog drive will begin on January 1st and run until January 29th. Prize tiers and other info can be found HERE.

Awards will be given in tiers in two categories:

  • The total number of reviews completed for the month.
  • The minimum weekly total maintained for all four weeks of the backlog drive.

NOTE: It is extremely important that we focus on quality reviewing. Despite our goal of reducing the backlog as much as possible, please do not rush while reviewing.

The NPP backlog at the end of the drive with the number of unreviewed articles by creation date. Red is older than 90 days, orange is between 90 and 30 days old, and green is younger than 30 days.

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 3819 unreviewed articles, with a further 6660 unreviewed redirects.
  • We are very close to eliminating the backlog completely; please help by reviewing a few extra articles each day!

New Year Backlog Drive results:

  • We made massive progress during the recent four weeks of the NPP Backlog Drive, during which the backlog reduced by nearly six thousand articles and the length of the backlog by almost 3 months!

General project update:

  • ACTRIAL will end it's initial phase on the 14th of March. Our goal is to reduce the backlog significantly below the 90 day index point by the 14th of March. Please consider helping with this goal by reviewing a few additional pages a day.
  • Reviewing redirects is an important and necessary part of New Page Patrol. Please read the guideline on appropriate redirects for advice on reviewing redirects. Inappropriate redirects can be re-targeted or nominated for deletion at RfD.

New Page Review Newsletter No.10Edit

Hello OnionRing, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!


  • ACTRIAL's six month experiment restricting new page creation to (auto)confirmed users ended on 14 March. As expected, a greatly increased number of unsuitable articles and candidates for deletion are showing up in the feed again, and the backlog has since increased already by ~30%. Please consider reviewing a few extra articles each day.

Paid editing

  • Now that ACTRIAL is inoperative pending discussion, please be sure to look for tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary.

Subject-specific notability guidelines

Nominate competent users for Autopatrolled

  • While patrolling articles, if you find an editor that is particularly competent at creating quality new articles, and that user has created more than 25 articles (rather than stubs), consider nominating them for the 'Autopatrolled' user right HERE.


  • The next issue Wikipedia's newspaper The Signpost has now been published after a long delay. There are some articles in it, including ACTRIAL wrap-up that will be of special interest to New Page Reviewers. Don't hesitate to contribute to the comments sections. The Signpost is one of the best ways to stay up date with news and new developments - please consider subscribing to it. All editors of Wikipedia and associated projects are welcome to submit articles on any topic for consideration by the The Signpost's editorial team for the next issue.

NPR Newsletter No.11 25 May 2018Edit

Hello OnionRing, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!


  • WP:ACREQ has been implemented. The flow at the feed has dropped back to the levels during the trial. However, the backlog is on the rise again so please consider reviewing a few extra articles each day; a backlog approaching 5,000 is still far too high. An effort is also needed to ensure that older unsuitable older pages at the back of the queue do not get automatically indexed for Google.

Deletion tags

  • Do bear in mind that articles in the feed showing the trash can icon may have been tagged by inexperienced or non NPR rights holders. They require your further verification.

Backlog drive:

  • A backlog drive will take place from 10 through 20 June. Check out our talk page at WT:NPR for more details. NOTE: It is extremely important that we focus on quality reviewing. Despite our goal of reducing the backlog as much as possible, please do not rush while reviewing.


  • There will be a large increase in the number of editathons in June. Please be gentle with new pages that obviously come from good faith participants, especially articles from developing economies and ones about female subjects. Consider using the 'move to draft' tool rather than bluntly tagging articles that may have potential but which cannot yet reside in mainspace.

Paid editing - new policy

  • Now that ACTRIAL is ACREQ, please be sure to look for tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary. There is a new global WMF policy that requires paid editors to connect to their adverts.

Subject-specific notability guidelines

  • The box at the right contains each of the subject-specific notability guidelines, please review any that are relevant BEFORE nominating an article for deletion.
  • Reviewers are requested to familiarise themselves with the new version of the notability guidelines for organisations and companies.

Not English

  • A common issue: Pages not in English or poor, unattributed machine translations should not reside in main space even if they are stubs. Please ensure you are familiar with WP:NPPNE. Check in Google for the language and content, tag as required, then move to draft if they do have potential.


  • Development is underway by the WMF on upgrades to the New Pages Feed, in particular ORES features that will help to identify COPYVIOs, and more granular options for selecting articles to review.
  • The next issue of The Signpost has been published. The newspaper is one of the best ways to stay up to date with news and new developments. between our newsletters.

Hello OnionRing, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

We can see the light at the end of the tunnel: there are currently 2900 unreviewed articles, and 4000 unreviewed redirects.

Announcing the Backlog Elimination Drive!

  • As a final push, we have decided to run a backlog elimination drive from the 20th to the 30th of June.
  • Reviewers who review at least 50 articles or redirects will receive a Special Edition NPP Barnstar:  . Those who review 100, 250, 500, or 1000 pages will also receive tiered awards:  ,  ,  ,  .
  • Please do not be hasty, take your time and fully review each page. It is extremely important that we focus on quality reviewing.

NPR Newsletter No.12 30 July 2018Edit

Chart of the New Pages Patrol backlog for the past 6 months. (Purge)

Hello OnionRing, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

June backlog drive

Overall the June backlog drive was a success, reducing the last 3,000 or so to below 500. However, as expected, 90% of the patrolling was done by less than 10% of reviewers.
Since the drive closed, the backlog has begun to rise sharply again and is back up to nearly 1,400 already. Please help reduce this total and keep it from raising further by reviewing some articles each day.

New technology, new rules
  • New features are shortly going to be added to the Special:NewPagesFeed which include a list of drafts for review, OTRS flags for COPYVIO, and more granular filter preferences. More details can be found at this page.
  • Probationary permissions: Now that PERM has been configured to allow expiry dates to all minor user rights, new NPR flag holders may sometimes be limited in the first instance to 6 months during which their work will be assessed for both quality and quantity of their reviews. This will allow admins to accord the right in borderline cases rather than make a flat out rejection.
  • Current reviewers who have had the flag for longer than 6 months but have not used the permissions since they were granted will have the flag removed, but may still request to have it granted again in the future, subject to the same probationary period, if they wish to become an active reviewer.
  • Editathons will continue through August. Please be gentle with new pages that obviously come from good faith participants, especially articles from developing economies and ones about female subjects. Consider using the 'move to draft' tool rather than bluntly tagging articles that may have potential but which cannot yet reside in mainspace.
The Signpost
  • The next issue of the monthly magazine will be out soon. The newspaper is an excellent way to stay up to date with news and new developments between our newsletters. If you have special messages to be published, or if you would like to submit an article (one about NPR perhaps?), don't hesitate to contact the editorial team here.

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018Edit

Hello OnionRing, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).

Chart of the New Pages Patrol backlog for the past 6 months.

Hello OnionRing, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!


As of 21 October 2018, there are 3650 unreviewed articles and the backlog now stretches back 51 days.

Community Wishlist Proposal
Project updates
  • ORES predictions are now built-in to the feed. These automatically predict the class of an article as well as whether it may be spam, vandalism, or an attack page, and can be filtered by these criteria now allowing reviewers to better target articles that they prefer to review.
  • There are now tools being tested to automatically detect copyright violations in the feed. This detector may not be accurate all the time, though, so it shouldn't be relied on 100% and will only start working on new revisions to pages, not older pages in the backlog.

Hello OnionRing,

Community Wishlist Survey – NPP needs you – Vote NOW
  • Community Wishlist Voting takes place 16 to 30 November for the Page Curation and New Pages Feed improvements, and other software requests. The NPP community is hoping for a good turnout in support of the requests to Santa for the tools we need. This is very important as we have been asking the Foundation for these upgrades for 4 years.
If this proposal does not make it into the top ten, it is likely that the tools will be given no support at all for the foreseeable future. So please put in a vote today.
We are counting on significant support not only from our own ranks, but from everyone who is concerned with maintaining a Wikipedia that is free of vandalism, promotion, flagrant financial exploitation and other pollution.
With all 650 reviewers voting for these urgently needed improvements, our requests would be unlikely to fail. See also The Signpost Special report: 'NPP: This could be heaven or this could be hell for new users – and for the reviewers', and if you are not sure what the wish list is all about, take a sneak peek at an article in this month's upcoming issue of The Signpost which unfortunately due to staff holidays and an impending US holiday will probably not be published until after voting has closed.

NPR Newsletter No.16 15 December 2018Edit

Hello OnionRing,

Reviewer of the Year

This year's award for the Reviewer of the Year goes to Onel5969. Around on Wikipedia since 2011, their staggering number of 26,554 reviews over the past twelve months makes them, together with an additional total of 275,285 edits, one of Wikipedia's most prolific users.

Thanks are also extended for their work to JTtheOG (15,059 reviews), Boleyn (12,760 reviews), Cwmhiraeth (9,001 reviews), Semmendinger (8,440 reviews), PRehse (8,092 reviews), Arthistorian1977 (5,306 reviews), Abishe (4,153 reviews), Barkeep49 (4,016 reviews), and Elmidae (3,615 reviews).
Cwmhiraeth, Semmendinger, Barkeep49, and Elmidae have been New Page Reviewers for less than a year — Barkeep49 for only seven months, while Boleyn, with an edit count of 250,000 since she joined Wikipedia in 2008, has been a bastion of New Page Patrol for many years.

See also the list of top 100 reviewers.

Less good news, and an appeal for some help

The backlog is now approaching 5,000, and still rising. There are around 640 holders of the NPR flag, most of whom appear to be inactive. The 10% of the reviewers who do 90% of the work could do with some support especially as some of them are now taking a well deserved break.

Really good news - NPR wins the Community Wishlist Survey 2019

At #1 position, the Community Wishlist poll closed on 3 December with a resounding success for NPP, reminding the WMF and the volunteer communities just how critical NPP is to maintaining a clean encyclopedia and the need for improved tools to do it. A big 'thank you' to everyone who supported the NPP proposals. See the results.

Training video

Due to a number of changes having been made to the feed since this three-minute video was created, we have been asked by the WMF for feedback on the video with a view to getting it brought up to date to reflect the new features of the system. Please leave your comments here, particularly mentioning how helpful you find it for new reviewers.

Hello OnionRing,

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.
  • 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.
  • The NPP flowchart now has clickable hyperlinks.

Hello OnionRing,

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.

New Page Review newsletter July-August 2019Edit

Hello OnionRing,

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

More new features are being added to the feed, including the important red alert for previously deleted pages. This will only work if it is selected in your filters. Best is to 'select all'. Do take a moment to check out all the new features if you have not already done so. If anything is not working as it should, please let us know at NPR. There is now also a live queue of AfC submissions in the New Pages Feed. Feel free to review AfCs, but bear in mind that NPP is an official process and policy and is more important.


Articles are still not always being checked thoroughly enough. If you are not sure what to do, leave the article for a more experienced reviewer. Please be on the alert for any incongruities in patrolling and help your colleagues where possible; report patrollers and autopatrolled article creators who are ostensibly undeclared paid editors. The displayed ORES alerts offer a greater 'at-a-glance' overview, but the new challenges in detecting unwanted new content and sub-standard reviewing do not necessarily make patrolling any easier, nevertheless the work may have a renewed interest factor of a different kind. A vibrant community of reviewers is always ready to help at NPR.


The backlog is still far too high at between 7,000 and 8,000. Of around 700 user rights holders, 80% of the reviewing is being done by just TWO users. In the light of more and more subtle advertising and undeclared paid editing, New Page Reviewing is becoming more critical than ever.

Move to draft

NPR is triage, it is not a clean up clinic. This move feature is not limited to bios so you may have to slightly re-edit the text in the template before you save the move. Anything that is not fit for mainspace but which might have some promise can be draftified - particularly very poor English and machine and other low quality translations.

Notifying users

Remember to use the message feature if you are just tagging an article for maintenance rather than deletion. Otherwise articles are likely to remain perma-tagged. Many creators are SPA and have no intention of returning to Wikipedia. Use the feature too for leaving a friendly note note for the author of a first article you found well made or interesting. Many have told us they find such comments particularly welcoming and encouraging.


Admins are now taking advantage of the new time-limited user rights feature. If you have recently been accorded NPR, do check your user rights to see if this affects you. Depending on your user account preferences, you may receive automated notifications of your rights changes. Requests for permissions are not mini-RfAs. Helpful comments are welcome if absolutely necessary, but the bot does a lot of the work and the final decision is reserved for admins who do thorough research anyway.

Other news

School and academic holidays will begin soon in various places around the Western world. Be on the lookout for the usual increase in hoax, attack, and other junk pages.

Our next newsletter might be announcing details of a possible election for co-ordinators of NPR. If you think you have what it takes to micro manage NPR, take a look at New Page Review Coordinators - it's a job that requires a lot of time and dedication.
