No, the bot is as slow as ever. If you could make the same edits as you did with your last FLC that passed, that would be great. Even if you don't, it should go through eventually like the last one did. Giants2008 (Talk) 17:12, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Angus McDonald (Virginia militiaman)[edit]

Well done! Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Rosiestep -- Rosiestep (talk) 03:11, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Caponer, You did a really good job on this one. As you saw, I only had a few comments. Something I noticed but didn't comment on was that many sentences had 3, or 4, or even 5 inline citations. I was wondering about that and figured I'd ask you here? --Rosiestep (talk) 15:00, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Rosiestep, thank you so incredibly much for reviewing this article! I've limited the internal citations to no more than three in any single instance. Thank you for pointing this out! -- Caponer (talk) 02:07, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Tucker County Seat War[edit]

Thank you but believe me, it didnt require much effort to create that little article. I did enjoy it, though, and hope other people interested in these forgotten moments in US history will appreciate them as well as I do. I'm not sure how to do the nomination thing you mentioned, though. If you can do it for me, go right ahead. I have no objections. If it means more people will read and learn. Thanks again!!--$1LENCE D00600D (talk) 22:01, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Hey $1LENCE D00600D! The DYK nomination for your article is located at Template:Did you know nominations/Tucker County Seat War‎. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments regarding this nomination, or if you have any alternative suggestions for hooks. -- Caponer (talk) 01:49, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
$1LENCE D00600D, in the future, you may want to consider expanding the article County seat war into a featured list of county seat wars. I'd be happy to assist you in this endeavor whenever you'd have time. Thank you again for your extraordinary contributions to Wikipedia! -- Caponer (talk) 01:52, 14 April 2014 (UTC)


Hello again and thank you. I do intend to do some more work on the County seat war article. Organization isn't one of my strongest suits, so I was planning on expanding it after I created another county seat war article or two. Theres the Stevens County War in Kansas that I would at least like to create a stub for, because it is supposed to be the "bloodiest," or at least one of the bloodiest county seat wars altogether. There were also a few other county seat wars in Texas, and even a few more back east. And if you would like to do any work on these articles, please go right ahead. Thats part of the reason I create most articles. (Many of the articles I create I feel can be greaty expanded upon.) Thanks again.--$1LENCE D00600D (talk) 23:59, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Milan Puskar Health Right[edit]

Thank your for your compliment. I would be thrilled if you were to nominate the article Milan Puskar Health Right for a DYK. I am not active in the DYK process as I am quite busy with the editing I do, keeping an eye on my watch list, doing cleanup with AWB and fighting vandalism with STiki. But I will do what I can to participate with your guidance. Thanks for your contributions to WP. Best wishes and happy editing. - - MrBill3 (talk) 00:23, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

MrBill3, I will nominate the article later today for a DYK. I'd do so now, but I need time to think of an interesting hook! Let me know if you have any suggestions for a hook in the meantime, and I'll incorporate it into the nomination. Once again, great job on the article! As you can probably tell, I contribute primarily West Virginia-related content, so I'm always excited when I discover new West Virginia-related articles! -- Caponer (talk) 10:31, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Perhaps,

MrBill3, I've nominated the article at Template:Did you know nominations/Milan Puskar Health Right. Let me know if you think of any suggestions for alternative hooks!

Culture of the Cook Islands[edit]

What section did you list this under in the GA directory?♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:39, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Hey Dr. Blofeld! It's listed under Wikipedia:Good articles/Social sciences and society. Is this incorrect? -- Caponer (talk) 09:44, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, Shouldn't the GA template have subtopic=Social sciences and society in it then?♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:49, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Dr. Blofeld, it looks like I accidentally added the subtopic "Culture, society and psychology" to the GA template on its talk page, rather than the topic. I've corrected this in the template. When you nominate, you place the subtopic in, but when it passes, you list the topic instead. (I know, right?) Usually a subtopic will redirect to the topic, but that didn't happen in this case! Hope all is well! Keep me posted on when you have your next GA nomination ready! -- Caponer (talk) 09:51, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Looks OK now, thanks. I'm having a quiet period at the moment. Eskimo (film) will probably be next at GA. I might have it ready in a day or two. I'll let you know when I nom! ♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:52, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi, can you review Eskimo (film)?♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:35, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Dr. Blofeld! I just saw your note regarding Eskimo (film), and when I went to claim the review for myself, it had already been taken up by another editor! I eagerly await the opportunity to review the next one. For the record, the article reads beautifully, and I hope to see the movie for myself soon.

WikiCup 2014 April newsletter[edit]

Round 3 of the 2014 WikiCup has just begun; 32 competitors remain. Pool G's Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... 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 Smithsonian Institution 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 United States ChrisGualtieri (submissions) who has produced a large number of good articles, many, including Falkner Island, on Connecticut-related topics. Other successful participants included Rhodesia Cliftonian (submissions), who saw three articles (including the top-importance Ian Smith) through featured article candidacies, and Washington, D.C. 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 Canada Reid,iain james (submissions), tiger from Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) and The Lion King from Minas Gerais Igordebraga (submissions). We also saw our first featured topic points of the competition, awarded to Nepal Czar (submissions) and Indiana 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. 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!

Charlie Williams[edit]

Thanks for your kind words. I edited the article per your request. The main problems were duplication of content, some light and likely unintended POV-pushing, and a few details that were more appropriate to a biography than an encyclopedic article. Of course, this is just my view -- please feel free to revert as you deem fit. Jaytwist (talk) 21:23, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Jaytwist, thank you so incredibly much for your wonderful edits to the Williams article! I'm going to make a few final tweaks and will be publishing it into the main space shortly. I am fortunate to have received the assistance of such a capable editor! -- Caponer (talk) 23:05, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Mannargudi, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Nayak (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Recruitment Centre[edit]

Hi Caponer,

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.

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!
