WithdrawEdit

Hiya, can you withdraw me? Also I recommend increasing GAN reviewer points for next year—makes sense to incentivize the biggest backlog affecting the cup. (not watching, please {{ping}}) czar 13:55, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

@Czar: Right, I have marked you as withdrawn. We will have a discussion at the end of the competition on whether any scoring changes should be made before next year. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 17:23, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

"Mostly restorations" (newsletter)Edit

Which of my FPs weren't restorations last round? I don't mind really, but as restoring images is the only thing that makes them worth points in the WikiCup besides photography (which I definitely didn't do)... I'm a little worried as to what I may have done wrong... Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.5% of all FPs 18:27, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

Withdrawal requestEdit

Hello. I would like to be withdrawn from the WikiCup as I will be limiting my Wikipedia time and activity. The work done by all of the editors is very inspiring though. It will be cool to see how it all turns out. Aoba47 (talk) 21:00, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

Mass message delivery to Portal talk:Current eventsEdit

For some reason, the WikiCup newsletter has been delivered to Portal talk:Current events since May 2017, however I cannot find it on the mailing list. This has become more of an issue since the November 2018 newsletter, when they started to become unsigned, and so do not get archived. If anyone can unsubscribe the page from the newsletter, that would be appreciated. Danski454 (talk) 19:47, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

@Danski454: User talk:Candlewicke for some ungodly reason redirects to Portal talk:Current events. Yes, this is madness. He was removed from the mailing list in this edit so it shouldn't be a problem, and I think I might undo that redirect. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.5% of all FPs 06:29, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Featured SoundsEdit

I realise that I'm going to be told to hold it until the end of this year's competition, but with Commons:COM:FSC having started up and going well, I think we should consider it for inclusion here. I'd say any files must be used on en-wiki to qualify for points, though. Perhaps 5 points for uploading a file, documenting it, getting it through FSC, etc, and 30 additional points for creators/restorers/negotiators of release? I think en-wiki has traditionally been appallingly bad at getting sound files, so I'd say that driving people to try it - without overbalancing the competition - is a very good idea.

Sure! As you say, it needs discussion. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 12:20, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
