Paul WhelanEdit

Hi, on behalf of my idiotic teammates I would like too apologise too you and your wasted efforts and on behalf of leinster. I do play with their development teams however i dont deserve a wiki page and only found out recently they made it and didnt get it on merit. if you would like identity verification please feel free to email me at: (Redacted) //mu mail is maynooth university. I dislike the majority of comments made against me by people who dont play or follow rugby as it is hurtful and damaging so i hope you will not revert my post. I just want all of this finished and deleted please. — Preceding unsigned comment added by PjdW97 (talkcontribs) 17:34, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

@PjdW97: -- I see that others have already addressed your comments as best they can. I don't think an Article for Deletion page can be deleted without a more aggravating reason (I see no libelous material for example -- only arguments that you haven't played a high enough grade of rugby yet to make you notable). But the page has been blanked regardless which is hopefully enough to allay any concerns you have. -- Shudde talk 11:35, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

March Madness 2017Edit

G'day all, please be advised that throughout March 2017 the Military history Wikiproject is running its March Madness drive. This is a backlog drive that is focused on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • updating the project's currently listed A-class articles to ensure their ongoing compliance with the listed criteria
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various task force pages or other lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the military history scope will be considered eligible. More information can be found here for those that are interested, and members can sign up as participants at that page also.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 March and runs until 23:59 UTC on 31 March 2017, so please sign up now.

For the Milhist co-ordinators. Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) & MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 07:24, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Precious
 
Three years!

--Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:12, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for today's Joe Warbrick, "about the rugby union footballer who conceived of, selected, again captained the 1888–89 New Zealand Native football team that toured New Zealand, Australia and the British Isles. They averaged a game every 2.3 days while in Britain -- a ridiculous number -- and frequently had to field injured players just to compete with a full complement. The team was truly pioneering and consequently Warbrick was probably one of the most influential players of the 19th century."! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:06, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

New Zealand national rugby union teamEdit

I'm putting together a list of potential reruns for TFA on the Main Page, and one I'd really like to be able to run on NZ's National Day in February is New Zealand national rugby union team. But a lot of unreferenced text has crept in over the years, and it's got 17 dead or dubious links. You seem like the go-to guy for NZ rugby, but if you'd like for me to ask for help somewhere else, I'll be happy to do that. - Dank (push to talk) 20:37, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

@Dank: Thanks for your message. I'm probably the person to get it up to scratch. I do keep an eye on the article but it gets well over 100,000 views a year and so it's hard fighting the entropy that comes with that. I'm pretty busy at the moment but will try to have a good look at it soon. -- Shudde talk 19:12, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

I'm a journalist working on a story for Radio New Zealand's The Wireless about the representation of women in Wikipedia articles. I'm particularly interested in the current effort to turn Kate Sheppard's page into a featured article and would love to talk with you about your involvement in the project. would you be available for a short interview over Skype or phone in the near future?

Women in RedEdit

Hi there Shudde! Thanks for adding your name to the WiR mailing list. It's good to have such an experienced editor as you participating in the project. If you want to become a full member, you should register using "Join WikiProject" in the box on the top right hand corner of the main WiR page. In any case, I hope you will soon be creating more biographies of women rugby players. I see there are already quite a few in Category:Female rugby union players and Category:Female rugby league players. You can add articles on rugby players whenever you like, using #1day1women and the talk page banner {{WIR-00-2018}}. Happy editing!--Ipigott (talk) 12:10, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

@Ipigott: Thanks for the message. Our biggest problem (at WP:RU) is less systematic bias here on en-wiki and more that we lack anywhere near the breadth of sources for writing bios on female players as for males (so a lack of coverage off-wiki). There seems to be a steady stream of bios on female international players being created, as doing this is getting easier as news coverage of the women's game improves. -- Shuddetalk 17:22, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
Nevertheless, your contributions are already making a difference. Keep up the good work.--Ipigott (talk) 11:31, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

April 2018 Milhist Backlog DriveEdit

G'day all, please be advised that throughout April 2018 the Military history Wikiproject is running its annual backlog elimination drive. This will focus on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • adding or improving listed resources on Milhist's task force pages
  • updating the open tasks template on Milhist's task force pages
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the scope of military history will be considered eligible. This year, the Military history project would like to extend a specific welcome to members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, and we would like to encourage all participants to consider working on helping to improve our coverage of women in the military. This is not the sole focus of the edit-a-thon, though, and there are aspects that hopefully will appeal to pretty much everyone.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 April and runs until 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2018. Those interested in participating can sign up here.

Peer review newsletter #1Edit

IntroductionEdit

Hello to all! I do not intend to write a regular peer review newsletter but there does occasionally come a time when those interested in contributing to peer review should be contacted, and now is one. I've mailed this out to everyone on the peer review volunteers list, and some editors that have contributed to past discussions. Apologies if I've left you off or contacted you and you didn't want it. Next time there is a newsletter / mass message it will be opt in (here), I'll talk about this below - but first:

  • THANK YOU! I want to thank you for your contributions and for volunteering on the list to help out at peer review. Thank you!
  • Peer review is useful! It's good to have an active peer review process. This is often the way that we help new or developing editors understand our ways, and improve the quality of their editing - so it fills an important and necessary gap between the teahouse (kindly introduction to our Wikiways) and GA and FA reviews (specific standards uphelp according to a set of quality criteria). And we should try and improve this process where possible (automate, simplify) so it can be used and maintained easily.

UpdatesEdit

It can get quite lonely tinkering with peer review...
With a bit of effort we can renovate the place to look like this!

Update #1: the peer review volunteers list is changingEdit

The list is here in case you've forgotten: WP:PRV. Kadane has kindly offered to create a bot that will ping editors on the volunteers list with unanswered reviews in their chosen subject areas every so often. You can choose the time interval by changing the "contact" parameter. Options are "never", "monthly", "quarterly", "halfyearly", and "annually". For example:

  • {{PRV|JohnSmith|History of engineering|contact=monthly}} - if placed in the "History" section, JohnSmith will receive an automatic update every month about unanswered peer reviews relating to history.
  • {{PRV|JaneSmith|Mesopotamian geography, Norwegian fjords|contact=annually}} - if placed in the "Geography" section, JaneSmith will receive an automatic update every yearly about unanswered peer reviews in the geography area.

We can at this stage only use the broad peer review section titles to guide what reviews you'd like, but that's better than nothing! You can also set an interest in multiple separate subject areas that will be updated at different times.

Update #2: a (lean) WikiProject Peer reviewEdit

I don't think we need a WikiProject with a giant bureaucracy nor all sorts of whiz-bang features. However over the last few years I've found there are times when it would have been useful to have a list of editors that would like to contribute to discussions about the peer review process (e.g. instructions, layout, automation, simplification etc.). Also, it can get kind of lonely on the talk page as I am (correct me if I'm wrong) the only regular contributor, with most editors moving on after 6 - 12 months.

So, I've decided to create "WikiProject Peer review". If you'd like to contribute to the WikiProject, or make yourself available for future newsletters or contact, please add yourself to the list of members.

Update #3: advertisingEdit

We plan to do some advertising of peer review, to let editors know about it and how to volunteer to help, at a couple of different venues (Signpost, Village pump, Teahouse etc.) - but have been waiting until we get this bot + WikiProject set up so we have a way to help interested editors make more enduring contributions. So consider yourself forewarned!

And... that's it!

I wish you all well on your Wikivoyages, Tom (LT) (talk) 00:31, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
