My apologies for blundering on WP:Wikipedia games. When I checked Special:WhatLinksHere/User:Titusfox/Chessy and saw your challenge on User talk:Bluecollarchessplayer#I Challenge You!, I thought I might have stepped into a private game. I now realize that it wasn't, and that I should have checked with you before assuming anything. Also, just thinking, you might want to join WikiProject Chess? Regards, benzband (talk) 12:16, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
I patrolled your page. I went through the enormously-backlogged list of newly-created pages and confirmed that your page was okay: not spam, not an attack page, not a copyright violation, not any of the other reasons for which I would delete someone's page without asking. Then I clicked "patrolled" to remove it from the list of "pages that have not yet been patrolled", and moved on to the next entry. That's all. DS (talk) 16:30, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Please be more careful while reviewing pending changes
I noticed that you accepted this pending change on the Slaughterhouse (group) article. This edit introduced a factual error; no "Slake" is known to be a part of this group. I have reverted the change for now, but please be more careful while reviewing pending changes the next time. You may also want to read Wikipedia:Reviewing#General criteria. Happy editing.

I did not know anything about the topic and thought there was a member of said group. Maybe I should be more careful... Regards,17:11, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
While we're at it, How about a game of Chess? 17:14, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Your Arbitration clerk application
Hi Titusfox, thank you for applying to become an Arbitration clerk. At this time we believe you don't have enough the amount of on-wiki experience needed to show us how you would handle some of the difficult and in some cases unpleasant and sensitive situations which Arbitration clerks need to deal with. I encourage you to continue gaining experience with Wikipedia and apply again when you have a few thousand edits. Again, thank you for your interest. Regards, Callanecc (talk • contribs • logs) 09:15, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
Ok, Thanks Callanecc!20:36, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
Marsden edit re modeling
This is the message regarding the removal of the modeling claim from marsden's page. I didn't know how to cite the removal because I removed it for lack of citation. This is the explanation of the edit :
This bio page shows a better citation is needed for Marsden's claim to be a former print and runway model. The current citation is from a bio blurb she herself provided to "specialistspeakers.com" There is no proper citation available because Marsden has never been employed as a print or runway model. There is zero evidence supporting her claim. No print ads featuring her and no runway credits.
Marsden has a variety of photographs taken of her posing in skimpy clothes that were taken by a David Anthony in 1994 when Marsden was 19-20 years old. She used these photographs as part of her harassment of Coach Donnelly at Simon Fraser University in 1994-1995. Donnelly released a few of the pictures to the press during the controversy and Marsden has featured a lot of them on her own websites.
“Last week, Donnelly released e-mail he says Marsden sent offering him sexual favors, as well as photos of her in modelling poses.Photographer David Anthony said this week he took the pictures about three years ago. He said Marsden told him she was interested in someone who didn’t seem to reciprocate the romantic feelings. “She made a comment that maybe these photos would help her get the person,” said Anthony, who added that Marsden appeared to be joking.” (Vancouver Sun: June 6, 1997 Kitchener Record: June 6, 1997: University defends firing coach who skipped hearing) http://bucketsdata.wordpress.com/1997/06/06/kitchener-record-june-6-1997-university-defends-firing-coach-who-skipped-hearing/
She has second set of photographs (see imitation leather suit photos) taken by a Ken Villeneuve, who is a self described “pervert” photographer who advertises his services on Model Mayhem. This is his own description of himself from Model Mayhem "over the hill, overweight, pervy shutter monkey at your service. Will work for peanuts, (the salted in the shell kind), and beer. Satisfaction guaranteed. I shoot implied nudes with my implied camera. Burp..." SEE http://www.modelmayhem.com/65265
Lots of young women have pictures taken of themselves hoping to become a model. They even sign up for modeling classes. They might even do a free "runway" event at the local mall. That is not professional modeling. Marsden does not have professional modeling credentials. I recommend the reference to a nonexistent modeling career be deleted.

Started on my sandbox but I don't really know what I am doing. Can you point me there are refer me to ad admin who is really into wikitables assists for some help? Thanks!

A quick update as we are half way through round two of this year's competition. WikiCup newcomer Godot13 (submissions) (Pool E) leads, having produced a massive set of featured pictures for Silver certificate (United States), an article also brought to featured list status. Former finalist Adam Cuerden (submissions) (Pool G) is in second, which he owes mostly to his work with historical images, including a number of images from Urania's Mirror, an article also brought to good status. 2010 champion (Pool C) is third overall, thanks to contributions relating to naval history, including the newly featured Japanese battleship Nagato. Cliftonian (submissions), who currently leads Pool A and is sixth overall, takes the title for the highest scoring individual article of the competition so far, with the top importance featured article Ian Smith.
With 26 people having already scored over 100 points, it is likely that well over 100 points will be needed to secure a place in round 3. Recent years have required 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) and 100 (2010). Remember that only 64 will progress to round 3 at the end of April. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page; 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 at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere 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!

Recent edit to The Sims 4
- @MrBill3 It's really nothing! 'Tribs 12:59, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
- It really was nothing. If you feel the content worthwhile I won't object to you restoring it. I was just clicking along with STiki and saw no source given. I in no way meant to imply anything but good faith, but the features of games are usually discussed in the sources and I'm not a big fan of crystal balling. Again though it is really nothing.
- I don't understand your comment on my talk page, "Perms" eh? "first" before what? Twinkle gives me all the rollback I need. I have no interest in adminship, for one I freely admit I have a POV (I think all editors do) and for another my passion in contention makes me a poor candidate. As for reviewer, I don't know if I have the focused energy over time. Best wishes and happy editing. - - MrBill3 (talk) 13:32, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
- Ok, Just thought with so many edits, you might want some more tools to work with. 'Tribs 14:53, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made to Caillou: you may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. Thank you. Dogmaticeclectic (talk) 18:46, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
Ok, Thanks for that! 'Tribs 09:35, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
Motto of the Day Help Request April 2014
Motto of the Day (WP:MOTD) is in a state of emergency and really needs your help! There are not enough editors who are reviewing or nominating mottos at Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/In review, and this probably means that you will notice a red link or “This space for rent” as our mottos for the next weeks and months.
Please take a moment to review the nominations and nominate your own new mottos at Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/In review and Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/'Specials. Any help would be appreciated! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 09:13, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
- This message has been sent by pjoef on behalf of Motto of the Day to all editors of the English Wikipedia who are showing MOTD's templates on their pages, and to all the participants to MOTD: (page, template, and category).
Round 3 of the 2014 WikiCup has just begun; 32 competitors remain. Pool G's Adam Cuerden (submissions) was Round 2's highest scorer, with a large number of featured picture credits. In March/April, he restored star charts from Urania's Mirror, lithographs of various warships (such as SMS Gefion) and assorted other historical media. Second overall was Pool E's Godot13 (submissions), whose featured list Silver certificate (United States) contains dozens of scans of banknotes recently promoted to featured picture status. Third was Pool G's ChrisGualtieri (submissions) who has produced a large number of good articles, many, including Falkner Island, on Connecticut-related topics. Other successful participants included Cliftonian (submissions), who saw three articles (including the top-importance Ian Smith) through featured article candidacies, and Caponer (submissions), who saw three lists (including the beautifully-illustrated list of plantations in West Virginia) through featured list candidacies. High-importance good articles promoted this round include narwhal from Reid,iain james (submissions), tiger from Cwmhiraeth (submissions) and The Lion King from Igordebraga (submissions). We also saw our first featured topic points of the competition, awarded to Czar (submissions) and Red Phoenix (submissions) for their work on the Sega Genesis topic. No points have been claimed so far for good topics or featured portals.
192 was our lowest qualifying score, again showing that this WikiCup is the most competitive ever. In previous years, 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) or 100 (2010) secured a place in Round 3. Pool H was the strongest performer, with all but one of its members advancing, while only the two highest scorers in Pools G and F advanced. At the end of June, 16 users will advance into the semi-finals.

I would just like to inform you that the WikiProject Good Article Recruitment Centre project has been but on hold until further notice. The decision comes after it was noticed that there was a lack of commitment from some of our recruiters as well as the recruitees. We will be working on revising to the program in order to make it more efficient and productive so we can teach user interested in reviewing Good Article nominations better.
I am telling you this because I see that you have added your name to the waiting list. If you are still interested in being recruited at some point in the future, please leave your name on the list, however, if you are no longer interested, I ask you to remove it or contact me on my talk page. Thank-you.--Dom497 (talk) 20:15, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

After an extremely close race, Round 3 is over. 244 points secured a place in Round 4, which is comparable to previous years- 321 was required in 2013, while 243 points were needed in 2012. Pool C's Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Casliber (submissions) finished second overall, claiming three featured articles, including the high-importance Grus (constellation). Third place was Pool B's , whose contributions included featured articles Russian battleship Poltava (1894) and Russian battleship Peresvet. Pool C saw the highest number of participants advance, with six out of eight making it to the next round.
The round saw this year's first featured portal, with Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to 12george1 (submissions) and the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This means that all content types have been claimed this year. Other contributions of note this round include a featured topic on Maya Angelou's autobiographies from Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Sven Manguard (submissions).
The judges would like to remind participants to update submission pages promptly. This means that content can be checked, and allows those following the competition (including those participating) to keep track of scores effectively. This round has seen discussion about various aspects of the WikiCup's rules and procedures. Those interested in the competition can be assured that formal discussions about how next year's competition will work will be opened shortly, and all are welcome to voice their views then. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews.

The final of the 2014 WikiCup begins in a few short minutes! Our eight finalists are listed below, along with their placement in Round 4:
- Godot13 (submissions), a WikiCup newcomer, finished top of Pool A and was the round's highest scorer. Godot is a featured picture specialist, claiming large numbers of points due to high-quality scans of historical documents, especially banknotes.
- Casliber (submissions) is a WikiCup veteran, having been a finalist every year since 2010. In the semi-final, he was Pool B's highest scorer. Cas's points primarily come from articles on the natural sciences.
- Czar (submissions) was Pool A's runner-up. Czar's points come mostly from content related to independent video games, including both articles and topics.
- Adam Cuerden (submissions) was Pool B's runner-up. Another featured picture specialist, many of Adam's points come from the restoration of historical media. He has been a WikiCup finalist twice before.
- Cwmhiraeth (submissions) won the WikiCup in 2012 and 2013, and enters this final as the first wildcard. She focuses on biology-related articles, and has worked on several high-importance articles.
- 12george1 (submissions) is the second wildcard. George's points come primarily from meteorology-related articles. This year and last year, George was the first person in the competition to score.
- Sturmvogel 66 (submissions), the third wildcard, was the 2010 champion and a finalist last year. His writes mostly on military history, especially naval history.
- Bloom6132 (submissions), the fourth and final wildcard, has participated in previous WikiCups, but not reached any finals. Bloom's points are mostly thanks to did you knows, featured lists and good articles related to sport and national symbols.
We say goodbye to this year's semi-finalists. Matty.007 (submissions), ThaddeusB (submissions), WikiRedactor (submissions), Figureskatingfan (submissions), Yellow Evan (submissions), Prism (submissions) and Cloudz679 (submissions) have all performed well to reach this stage of the competition, and we hope they will all be joining us again next year.
There are two upcoming competitions unrelated to the WikiCup which may be of interest to those who receive this newsletter. The Stub Contest will run through September, and revolves around expanding stub articles, especially high-importance or old stubs. In addition, a proposal has been made for a new competition, the GA Cup, which the organisers plan to run next year. This competition is based on the WikiCup and aims to reduce the good article review backlog.
There is now a thread for brainstorming on how next year's WikiCup competition should work. Please come along and share your thoughts- What works? What doesn't work? What needs changing? Signups for next year's competition will be open soon; we will be in touch. If, at this stage of the competition, you are keen to help the with the WikiCup, please do what you can to participate in review processes. Our finalists will find things much easier if the backlogs at good article candidates, featured article candidates, featured picture candidates and the rest are kept at a minimum. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!
