Hello and greetings to you all my colleagues & a happy new year, I’m requesting this in order to contribute and serve/give back to the community that has given me a sense of belonging & purpose for the last 3 years. I believe I can be of great help in this regard because I am conversant with imperative notability guidelines such as WP:GNG, WP:BASIC, & WP:ANYBIO. I also know and have learnt the imperative nature of WP:RS I know what is an encyclopedic material and what is not, I work tirelessly at the New Pages Feed & have successfully made use of CSD tags & have successfully nominated non encyclopedic materials for deletion on numerous occasions of which at least 80% of them end up deleted/removed. I know about copy-vios and attack pages & how they must be treated with immediate effect. I know how to deal with non encyclopedic vanity pages and promotional advert articles. I am conversant with WP:5P. I know how to deal with editors who have openly admitted that they have received financial reward for edit(s), I know to scrutinize such pages meticulously. I understand WP:NPOV and also the importance of WP:V and its salient nature. I also understand specific policies for certain type of articles, for actors; WP:NACTOR, for singers WP:SINGER for academics; WP:NACADEMIC and so many others. My major fixation would be on BLP’s & organization related articles. I have extensive knowledge in both fields and understand how articles about them can be blatantly violated or used for blatant promotion. Furthermore I have created 40+ BLP’s with none deleted hence my work so far has been satisfactory. I believe I can do positive tireless good work with the tool set and significantly contribute to the community. I am more than happy to answer any questions or tests to prove my all knowledge claims I have made above & if need be I’m ready to answer any queries you may have for me.

Happy New Year! My old username is still on the AFC reviewer list, but my new one is not. The script rights did not transfer over. Can my old username (thsmi002) be switched to my new one (TJMSmith) so that I can use the script again? Thanks! TJMSmith (talk) 18:04, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

Reason:After submitting an AfC I saw how long the queue was and wondered if I could help out. I have started a fair few articles that have grown nicely and participated in notability debates. I am interested to see if I am able to do this work on my smart phone ... I usually only edit on a computer but this may be something I can do well at odd times in between things by phone.

Hello! I was an active participant between 2013 and 2015 and was actually awarded Bronze Wiki Award during an elimination drive. I've read the reviewing instructions again (which I'm already familiar with), my account is well over 90 days old and I have more than 500 edits. You can check my previous contributions and my talk page archive to assess if I meet the last three criteria which are about understanding notability, deletion policy and responding to questions about the reviews appropriately : Special:Contributions/GordiasAchos and User talk:GordiasAchos/Archive 1. Thanks! GordiasAchos (talk) 11:52, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
  Not done. I intentionally let this sit for the better part of a week; while I do appreciate long-term users coming back to the project, it does not give me a whole lot of confidence that there have been zero edits since this post, and only two recent edits before it. Primefac (talk) 20:43, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I was waiting for your response so that I could start working on AfC once again. Funny thing is I was checking your edits in the meantime, trying to understand when you usually return to requests. Although I don't agree with your reasoning -I don't think simply waiting to resume working on a project where one left off is a valid reason to reject an application-, I still appreciate you taking the time to review. Thank you! GordiasAchos (talk) 22:25, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
Forgive me if it seems harsh, but we've had a string of hacked/zombie accounts in the last year or so that have ended up blocked for causing mayhem upon their "return." I am in no way saying you have fallen victim to that, but I just found it suspicious. If you really do want to get back to reviewing submitted drafts then I suppose it's not an issue but in all honesty I expected to decline the request and then never hear from you again. Primefac (talk) 21:09, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

I have been working on the Wikis since 2012, I am a new page reviewer and a passionate editor on topics on and about Africa. I am very sure that I can be of help in reviewing some of the backlogged articles that exist on the platform.

Hi, I would like the AfC reviewer right to help work at the backlog. I have read all the relevant policies and have participated at a couple AfD discussions. I am always open to any criticism/feedback, and am willing to answer any questions anyone may have. I have had one draft declined, but since then I have re-read policy and now I believe I have a pretty good understanding. Thanks for considering this! Yours, Puddleglum 2.0 19:20, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
@Primefac:: Hi! I was just wondering if there was any particular reason you were skipping over my request? It seems that you've taken care of all the other requests but not mine. I don't mean to rush you if you were still thinking about it, I was just wondering. Thank you! Puddleglum 2.0 23:54, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
None, other than the fact that I think I got sidetracked. Will take a look when I can. Primefac (talk) 02:46, 4 February 2020 (UTC)

User:The Duke of Nonsense

Hello. I was put on the Inactive list and I'm writing here to be put back on the Active one. Whilst I no longer edit as much as I use to. I plan to get back into slight editing and reviewing articles, however this won't be as much as before. As I've lost most of my interest in Wikipedia (IMSLP is where I spend most of my time now). That doesn't mean I'm leaving, as stated prior. I promise to at least make an attempt to review articles. Thank you.

I would like to help review Articles for Creation. I have familiarized myself with the AfC review criteria. I currently having Pending and Rollback rights, which I've exercised without issue. I believe I have a good sense for what constitutes an appropriate Wikipedia article as I've created 29 articles [4] with only one being deleted (the first article I created, seven years ago) and improved Suquamish Museum to GA status (though subsequent edits now probably merit it for delisting). For full disclosure, I have an IBAN with an editor who was a very active member of this project, however, they are in the seventh month of an indefinite block with no pending requests for block review. Were they to be unblocked and resume activity, I would terminate my involvement in AfC. DocumentError (talk) 20:14, 10 February 2020 (UTC) DocumentError (talk) 20:14, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
