Just temporary?[edit]

We can't afford to lose editors from the northwest; who'd be left to call a spade a fucking shovel? Eric Corbett 22:29, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

I also hope that you’ll be back! Working with you both on Malkin Tower was definitely one of the better experiences I’ve had here. I’d certainly be happy to work together again in the future. Actually I was talking to Eric a little while ago about doing an article on the 1633 witch trail with at idea in mind.--Trappedinburnley (talk) 09:12, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks to both of you. I don't know how long it'll be for, perhaps forever or maybe just temporary. I honestly really enjoyed working with both of you on Malkin Tower, it was definitely one of my best experiences here too. Let me know if either of you do start any more witchy projects in the future and I'd probably be happy to do some research if not much writing. BigDom (talk) 09:35, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 June newsletter[edit]

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 Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Scotland 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 Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to Florida 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 Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Republic of Rose Island 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. 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!

Nomination for deletion of Template:CCC[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svgTemplate:CCC has been nominated for deletion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for discussion page.

Hi, I wanted to reach out about potentially renaming the County Cricket Club template. Perhaps "CCEW" (Cricket Championship England and Wales), hopefully a series of letters that won't conflict in the future. Now that that I know the template is still of use, I have tentatively withdrawn my nomination. --Zfish118 (talk) 17:33, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
