2020Edit

  • December 2019: 188 cases, 90,196 articles per bot, likely around 91,000, 16 from 2010.
  • January 2020: 186 cases, ~140,000 articles per bot, likely around 110,000 once pruned, 15 from 2010.
  • February 2020: 185 cases, 113,754 articles per bot, likely around 113,000, 14 from 2010
  • March 2020: 181 cases, 104,656 articles per bot, 13 from 2010
  • April 2020: 178 cases, 99,045 articles per bot, 12 from 2010
  • May 2020: 179 cases, 97,652 articles per bot, 12 from 2010
  • June 2020: 179 cases, 98,964 articles per bot, 12 from 2010
  • July 2020: 175 cases, 98,790 articles per bot, 11 from 2010
  • August 2020: 177 cases, 96,678 articles per bot, 10 from 2010
  • September 2020: 180 cases, 96,051 articles per bot, 10 from 2010
  • October 2020: 185 cases, 99228+ articles, 10 from 2010

My intention for 2020 is solely to focus on WP:CCI and try to get that backlog reasonable at long last. Short term, if we can get to 175 open cases and 80k articles to check that will help. Ideally, 150 and 60k my the end of the year and everything from 2010 and 2016 done (2016 was only one case somehow). Wizardman 23:32, 26 November 2019 (UTC)

Took a skim through it; for the most part I agree with everything you'd say, though I'd consider Craigy a lot harder now that Burke's Peerage is behind a paywall. Didn't use to be when i did parts of it in like 14-15, sadly. Wizardman 00:40, 10 December 2019 (UTC)

Philadelphia Phillies all-time rosterEdit

As a last-ditch effort I wanted to see if you'd be interested in updating the Philadelphia Phillies all-time roster lists. Therapyisgood (talk) 12:26, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

I'll try to start up on that today, can't make any guarantees though. Plugging in names is easy enough to update all-time rosters but there's way more detail in the Phillies ones (same reason I never got to the Orioles or Mets ones). Wizardman 14:17, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

TFA (June 2020)Edit

This is to let you know that the Harmon Killebrew article has been scheduled as today's featured article for June 29, 2020. Please check the article needs no amendments. If you're interested in editing the main page text, you're welcome to do so at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/June 29, 2020.—Wehwalt (talk) 01:33, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for the article, about "a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame", "an article that has a rather unique history. Back in 2008, this became part of a WikiProject Baseball article improvement drive, as we saw a few Hall of Famers who had rather poor articles. It became a GA easily, and for the moment that was all. In December 2010, I saw him back in the news again due to his cancer diagnosis, and restarted work on it to try and bring it here. I realized that the prose wasn't really all that good, and over the past several months have essentially rewritten the entire article. He unfortunately died last month, and further modifications were again done to the article. The article was made tougher to modify because he was known as a nice, quiet guy; it's a lot easier to write about someone if they are (at least a little bit) verbose or controversial, as there's more to sink your teeth into."! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:26, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

Rick AuerbachEdit

I went to User:Larry Hockett/MLB veteran stubs as you suggested. I redid Rick Auerbach's article, and am currently working on [[Ken Boswell].

Rating of Thomas Dillon, 4th Viscount of DillonEdit

Dear Wizardman. You were so kind as to rate the article Thomas Dillon, 4th Viscount Dillon at 15:56 on the 25 June 2020. You upgraded its rating from Start-Class to B. Thank you so much! MilHistBot ran again on the article at 00:45 on 26 June 2020 and rated it C, because the article failed B1, ("is suitably referenced and cited."). It is of course difficult to establish for a human, and a fortiori for a bot, where citations are needed and whether given citations are adequate. I have the impression that MilHistBot simply checks whether there is citation whatsoever at the end of each paragraph. The article in question fulfils that simplistic criterion. I suspect it failed B1 because it contains collapsed tables (at the time of the rating there was only one such table, named Timeline). I suspect MilHistBot treats tables as paragraphs of text and expects a citation at the end. I wonder whether MilHistBot should not also look at the frequency of citations. The article in question has a prose size of 1376 words and comprises 73 citations, meaning that there is a citation for every 19 words. For comparison, the recent FA John FitzWalter, 2nd Baron FitzWalter, has 4005 words for 87 citations i.e. 46 words per citation. Thank you so much for all your hard word!

User:WilliamJEEdit

Having a little bit of an issue with another user who seems to wanna start an edit war with me. For some reason, no matter how obnoxious the other guy is being, I'm always the one who ends up getting blocked or otherwise beaten down for "my actions" (referencing when I got banned for removing Danny Valencia's T-ball career from his ridiculous article). Anyway, could use your help.Johnny Spasm (talk) 20:45, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

Yes, please do. I dunno what NPOV, OR & SPS are, but he's removed referenced facts. Dick Tidrow and Bobby Floyd being the best examples. Side note, I talked on the phone with Dan Napoleon's son earlier today. There's very little on his dad on the net.

A thank you and can you give me input.Edit

Hi Wizardman,

First, thank you for listing the Weng Weng article to B-class. I truly appreciate it.

I noticed a lot of the articles you have worked on are listed as good. I recently nominated Brandon Lee. It failed, the reviewer who gave feedback, had some good and reasonable things to say. As well as stuff that I found bad, including elements of his re-write.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Brandon_Lee/GA1#GA_Review

I resolved many of these elements and I believe the article is almost there, with more. Currently, the only element of missing of his career is how Lee got into character for the film The Crow.

Check it out, if you have the time or want to take the time obviously, and let me know.Filmman3000 (talk) 16:56, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Disruption @ HOAEdit

I would like to bring to your attention User:Ayaltimo for disruption on multiple articles. The user is not following WP:CYCLE for ex; the user removed content from an article [4] and tells me to go to the talk page [5] reverts back in the middle of a discussion without getting consensus [6]. Follows me on another page to revert [7]. Even in talk pages theres issues with this user who is dishonest about their position. The user claims that the subject (Yusuf) in the article was a founder [8] [9] but then backs out and says Umar is the founder and accuses me of opposing my own edit by claming I opposed the initial edit that he was the ancestor of the founder. [10] This was clearly not the case as i've stated on the talk page twice that Yusuf was an ancestor, this is highly disruptive since its misleading to uninvolved editors watching this dispute. [11] [12] [13]. This section of wikipedia is facing severe disruption, [14] can something be done here about this user? Magherbin (talk) 06:35, 12 December 2020 (UTC)

I would like to say this has been already been reviewed by the moderator EdJohnston as my witness where three users including Magherbin who has been engaging in an edit war with multiple users on multiple pages has already been warned. [15] He likes to play the victim when actually he was worse by warring with two users from two pages removing sourced content without consulting them on the talk page. [16] [17] [18] [19] He has made false accusations on the edit warring noticeboard which is why no serious action has been taken except for both of us getting a warning. [20] The issue has been already been resolved. This is getting tiring if he's just going to continue to run to different moderators just because he doesn't accept the outcome by the previous moderator especially the administers noticeboard for edit warring. He's simply wasting people's time. Ayaltimo (talk) 06:51, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
The noticeboard was about editwarring but thats not the only issue here, there's also your conduct. This is it right here when the user says "without consulting them", Ayaltimo appeared on that page after following my edits, the user doesnt understand that when new content is challenged you must discuss your edits on the talk page and come to a consensus. Prior to Ayaltimos arrival on the page, this user had added disputed new content which I removed [21] and the user also removed content that was on the page for a while [22]. Ayaltimos highly disruptive as the user makes changes mid discussion unilaterally [23] and then claims their own edit is vandalism and reverts [24], this I believe is to deliberately mislead editors on the page. Magherbin (talk) 07:26, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
Like I said the issue has already been resolved. You can stop deceiving and wasting people's time. We have both been warned unless we break a rule again then no action will be taken but to respond to your misleading points. A highly disruptive user is someone who engages in edit wars with multiple users on multiple pages as I showed above. You failed to come up with a consensus on the talk page and simply removed content without discussing it with us. What you have is an agenda on Wikipedia. The other user didn't remove your source the second time. He posted a more balanced Pov where his sources criticize your theoretical source and you removed it because it didn't align with your views again showing your agenda. You even told him to stop edit warring. [25] That's when I stepped in because you were being disruptive and broke the rules by reverting the page three times in just less than 24 hours. [26] We tried to conversate with you on the talk page and made our points very clear while you barely made any attempt to challenge our sources but instead, you reverted our edits without consulting us and you have the nerve to call everyone else disruptive when the problem is just only you? As for Afar people's page. I removed the Yasin source because it was not credible and he is not a peer-reviewed historian when you look him up. I came up with multiple reliable sources disproving it and you failed to challenge my argument. Even another user got involved seeing the error from your source. [27] You didn't discuss properly and simply reverted back. [28] You also engaged in an edit war with another user on the Zeila page. [29] Just removing content without discussing them on the talk page seems to be your specialty and on top of that. You accuse me of following when on the Ethiopian-Adal war article, you followed me showing a clear retaliatory behaviour when I was only reverting edits from a highly suspected sock puppet on that page. Reporter104 and his other confirmed sock named Parker8 and Lancer1295 were highly vandalizing that page. When they all got banned they resorted to using their IP by adding unexplained and unsourced additions a similar behaviour shown by Reporter104 socks. I wasn't the only one reverting the IP's vandalism so was the moderator named Materialscientist. [30] He then made a new account named Rogeman123 and even reverted one of the administers edit. [31] This user is known for his persistent sock puppetry behaviour and I've requested page protection [32] for the persistent sockpuppetry then guess who shows up? A disruptive editor. [33] actually copying my phrases and doing revenge attacks. A clear violation of Wikipedia policy and I attempted using good faith by reverting back to his revision [34]. The reason why he lacks good faith is because he shows no sign of interest to discuss with other editors on the talk page when they've clarified their content. This pattern shown by Magherbin is what you consider disruptive.
Two other users called you out for being a deliberate disruptive editor [35] because you have an ethnonational agenda, you try to impose Harla/Berber connection to northern Somali related articles which your sources don't state anything like that which is original research again violating the rules of Wikipedia. You have a history of sock-puppetry. [36] You have no right to accuse anyone of being disruptive when you have a troublesome history and still continue to show the same troublesome behaviour. Ayaltimo (talk) 10:20, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
Actually Ethiopian-Adal war was on my watchlist before you even signed up to wikipedia and I even edited that page back in August reverting the sock account you mentioned called reporter [37]. Ayaltimo is a new editor trying to impose their will on pages and if they arent stopped in their tracks, the project will be in harms way. For someone that eventually agreed with my edits and admitted they were wrong, this change of heart is obviously puzzling [38]. There's too much deflection here for me to respond to atm but let me reply to the accusation of original research, user states that im using original research with no diffs hence baseless attacks. The same accusation was made on the talk page [39] however in the edit summary of its removal the user claims its a weak source [40]. Magherbin (talk) 11:33, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
It doesn't matter if you contributed to the page last August. You followed me and conducted a revenge attack which I will explain. I reverted one of the IP's edits who was adding unexplained and unsourced additions a similar behaviour exhibited by the previous sock master (Roporter104) who vandalized that page. My edit for reverting the IP's user was on the 6th of December. [41] How am I necessarily damaging the page when I am just reverting plain vandalism? I wasn't the only one so was the moderator named Materialscientist who also reverted vandalism from the same IP user I was engaging with. [42] You only reverted my edit on the 8th of December. [43] The same day you removed other editors content without consulting with them on the talk page. [44] and the day before that you were engaging in an edit war with another user in Zeila page. [45] Going back to Ethiopian-Adal war you reverted my changes to the IP's revision who multiple users combated with including the moderator so if anyone is damaging articles it's clearly you. The article originally had Somali forces but you changed it into Adal forces with no references backing it. [46] That is clear vandalism and the same behaviour as the previous sock. You even reported me for reverting the IP's user when a moderator reverted his edit too. You planned this just so you can get me into trouble but it has been reviewed by the noticeboard and you have been warned. I've shown you above these are not my opinions when it comes to you being a disruptive editor with a dangerous motive and many users agree with on this. Ayaltimo (talk) 12:35, 12 December 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for your contributions to this encyclopedia using 21st century technology. I hope you don't get any unnecessary blisters.

A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Copyright Cleanup Barnstar
Thought I'd give you another barnstar for your contributions to CCI this month. You've helped put a dent in some nasty backlogs. Keep up the great work! :) MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 20:19, 27 February 2021 (UTC)


Wikipedia:DiscordEdit

Hey again. I was wondering if you wanted to join the (unofficial) Wikipedia Discord server where me and Moneytrees are at Wikipedia:Discord. Other CCI users that are there besides the two of us are Premediated Chaos and Vami_IV. If you'd like to join, I'd love to see you there! If not, no worries :) --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 02:01, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

Cleaning up Special:WantedTemplatesEdit

Hi, due to quirks in the way that Wikipedia parses javascript pages, curly braces are parsed as templates, unless they are inside of <nowiki>...</nowiki>, <pre>...</pre>, <syntaxhighlight>...</syntaxhighlight> ... As a result of this, your script page, User:Wizardman/vector.js, is generating links in Special:WantedTemplates (in particular links to Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:" + db + " and Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:" + db + type + "). Recently, an interface editor attempted to fix this by adding <nowiki> at the top and </nowiki> at the bottom of your script page. This didn't work because you already have <nowiki>...</nowiki> on that page. It would be great if you could add <syntaxhighlight>...</syntaxhighlight> tags (you don't have these) at the top and bottom of your page like this which will prevent your page from generating links in Special:WantedTemplates.

Reverted Content Removal - GoldEdit

Hello,

I reverted an edit you made to remove an unsourced paragraph on the article Gold. HERE

I searched very briefly and located an excellent source that supported the paragraph well restored the content along with a citation. I was going to leave a note here that it would have been better to flag it needing a citation then to remove it. The amount of experience you have here compelled me to see why you removed it. Your next edit was to a CCI investigation HERE.

I went back to double check and read both the source and the paragraph over again and I didn't find any evidence that it was pasted or copied in any way, but it very well could have been from somewhere else. I checked the CCI history and found that the edits the user had made to the Gold article HERE and HERE had no connection the paragraph removed. The investigation was noted this content removal was associated to the user and that is not accurate.

I felt it best to explain my actions at that point and bring the issue to your attention for further correction.
