Mandatory 10-digit dialing in Washington

When I made this edit, I did not realize you had been the immediately prior editor. We should get the dates straight at List of Washington area codes and Area code 564 and harmonize the two articles. My reading of the notices from the service providers is that July 29 is the mandatory cutover with permissive 7- or 10-digit dialing before that. I couldn't find anything definitive at WUTC, which was disappointing. Cheers and happy new year! - Brianhe (talk) 23:29, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

p.s. this might be useful but it only mentions T-Mobile's notice, which I already referenced at List of Washington area codes. Docket UT-143787 referenced here states the mandatory 10-digit dialing would commence by September 30, which is either contradictory (if you read it as "not before") or compatible (if you read it as "no later than") with what was announced. - Brianhe (talk) 23:35, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
@Brianhe: I'll defer to you to make the necessary corrections, as I'm out of my element dealing with area codes and phone infrastructure. I believe the January date should be removed (as T-Mobile puts it as a suggested date for use of 10-digit dialing) and replaced with the hard deadline in July and the new assignments beginning in August. SounderBruce 23:40, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
Okay, it's not my "area" of expertise either (ha ha) but I'll try to make it consistent. These articles don't seem to have regular maintainers. - Brianhe (talk) 03:51, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Megaproject rankings

If the Bertha project is over $4 billion and East Link is over $3 billion [1], how can Spring District be the second largest project in the region at only $2.3 B? - Brianhe (talk) 18:48, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

DYK for Spring District

 On 6 January 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Spring District, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the $2.3 billion Spring District in Bellevue, Washington, is the second largest construction project in the Puget Sound region? You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Spring District), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Hi there. Regarding Template:Did you know nominations/Grimsby GO Station, I think given the discussion we had after you gave a tick mark, the DYK promoters may be expecting a new tick mark before adding the hook to the queue. Maybe. Mindmatrix 00:56, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

DYK for tsunami article(s)?

Ocosta Elementary School & Vertical and horizontal evacuation might make a good dual DYK, you think? - Brianhe (talk) 05:46, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

@Brianhe: Perhaps, but the evacuation article doesn't have enough prose to qualify and is too old (created more than 7 days ago). SounderBruce 05:58, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
Duh, you're right, I'd have to expand it 5x now. Probably possible but a big effort and I have other ideas cooking at the moment, like Mount Octopus (how could I resist that?)... - Brianhe (talk) 06:02, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Ocosta DYK

Bruce I just noticed there's a DYK nom now for Ocosta Elementary School like we had discussed [2]. Do you think it would be proper for me to request credit for contributing to it prior to the nom? - Brianhe (talk) 13:55, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

@Brianhe: Go for it. I think you've added enough to deserve credit, though since it's already been moved to the queues, I'm not sure where to request the change. SounderBruce 17:07, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Bike share article reversions

Hi Bruce. I just re-reverted a couple of your edits on Biketown and Mobi (bike share). My original edits were part of the clean up resulting from the merger of the Bixi (company) article into PBSC Urban Solutions. As noted in the discussion, BIXI was merely a brand name of the bike-share system supplier, PBSC Urban Solutions. It was PBSC and not BIXI that declared bankruptcy. I hope this clears up the reason for my change. Please let me know if you'd like to discuss further. Thanks. --Mindfrieze (talk) 22:54, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

@Mindfrieze: I'd rather keep it as Bixi, as the name is mentioned specifically in references related to both bike shares in place of PBSC. In practice, it's better to use common names rather than official ones (e.g. Sound Transit vs. Central Puget Sound Regional Transit Authority), so the front-facing brand should remain with a piped link to PBSC. SounderBruce 23:07, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
Piping the Bixi link to PBSC sounds reasonable. I've gone ahead and made the edits. --Mindfrieze (talk) 00:20, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
@Mindfrieze: Thank you. SounderBruce 00:22, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

March 2017 WikiCup newsletter

And so ends the first round of the competition, with 4 points required to qualify for round 2. It would have been 5 points, but when a late entrant was permitted to join the contest in February, a promise was made that his inclusion would not result in the exclusion of any other competitor. To achieve this, the six entrants that had the lowest positive score of 4 points have been added to the 64 people who otherwise would have qualified. As a result, some of the groups have nine contestants rather than eight. Our top four scorers in round 1 were:

  •   Cas Liber, last year's winner, led the field with two featured articles on birds and a total score of 674.
  •   Iry-Hor, a WikiCup newcomer, came next with a featured article, a good article and a tally of 282 bonus points for a score of 517. All these points came from the article Nyuserre Ini, an Ancient Egyptian pharaoh,
  •   1989, another WikiCup newcomer, was in joint third place at 240. 1989 has claimed points for two featured lists and one good article relating to anime and comedy series, all of which were awarded bonus points.
  •   Peacemaker67 shared third place with five good articles and thirteen good article reviews, mostly on naval vessels. He is also new to the competition.

The largest number of DYKs have been submitted by Vivvt and The C of E, who each claimed for seven, and MBlaze Lightning achieved eight articles at ITN. Carbrera and Peacemaker67 each claimed for five GAs and Krishna Chaitanya Velaga was well out in front for GARs, having reviewed 32. No featured pictures, featured topics or good topics yet, but we have achieved three featured articles and a splendid total of fifty good articles.

So, on to the second round. Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 1 but before the start of round 2 can be claimed in round 2. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is a good article candidate, a featured process, or anything else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Deletion of MTA Routes 210 and 215

Per your nomination of deletion of articles: Route 210 (MTA Maryland) and Route 215 (MTA Maryland): I would appreciate the chance to make changes to the original articles before the articles evaporated into thin air. As you mentioned on my talk page User talk:Scott218, deletion can be prevented if improvements were made to the references and transit history. I would be more than happy to make those changes, if only all my hard work wasn't deleted without proper notice.Scott218 (talk) 01:47, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

@Scott218: It's better to develop these articles in the draft or user space before sending them out unfinished. They've been redirected by another editor for now, so your work is still there in the revision history. SounderBruce 01:49, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
@SounderBruce: Both articles had sufficient information directly from the source (MTA). Baltimore is in the midst of revamping its entire bus system so I think any information is good information. I made some changes per your request to both articles in order to give them additional weight and context.Scott218 (talk) 02:09, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
@Scott218: Being "one of the only transportation links" between two cities is not part of the notability guidelines and there's not enough standalone content to let the articles stay as they are. Also, Patch.com is not a good reliable source because of the lack of an editorial department. And references should not be bare URLs, but rather links with titles and, preferably, full templates with metadata (dates, authors, publications, access-dates, etc.). SounderBruce 02:12, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
@SounderBruce: Many of the other MTA articles (that I did not create) follow a similar article format, to which I was following. I'm not sure what you want me to say, because unfortunately not all transport lines have a deep history, since some are newly created. My main goal here is to convey information, so it shouldn't be that interesting of an article in the first place.Scott218 (talk) 02:24, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
@Scott218: Generally, articles on bus routes aren't created in the first place, so having one is an exception that must be backed up by something. That something in most cases is a well-sourced history (like the other MTA articles) or other extraordinary coverage (see: Route 41 (King County Metro), an article I wrote). A new bus route isn't going to be notable on its own, unless it has a great deal of discussion before it was implemented (see RapidRide G Line). I recommend merging it back into the list or mentioning it in the transportation section of Annapolis's article. SounderBruce 03:03, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
@SounderBruce: Do whatever you want. I will say going into other territories of the country where you may not have complete knowledge or full awareness of the transit dynamic may hinder your assumptions on what constitutes deletion.Scott218 (talk) 03:27, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

NYCFC 0-7 NYRB

Explain to me why this article should be kept it does not meet notability standards. I've given evidence of why and no one has given any evidence to show that this match was notable. This game is being treated like the world cup final, who cares who played in this game it's not notable. Certain sections of this article need to removed and simplified it contains way to much information for a regular season MLS game. Other users in the other two discussions also agreed with me, but for whatever reason the discussion kept ended in no consensus because a couple of people thought it should be kept and provided weak if any reasoning for it. This article makes wikipedia look bad because it's supposed to have important games profiled on it, but a regular season MLS game is not.
