WikiCup 2014 March newsletter[edit]

A quick update as we are half way through round two of this year's competition. WikiCup newcomer Smithsonian Institution 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 Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... 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 Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) (Pool C) is third overall, thanks to contributions relating to naval history, including the newly featured Japanese battleship Nagato. Rhodesia 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!

Proposed deletion of Pixels (2016 film)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Pixels (2016 film) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:NFILM: Independent reliable sources do not confirm that principle photography has begun.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

"Films that have not been confirmed by reliable sources to have commenced principal photography should not have their own articles...Sources must be used to confirm the start of principal photography after shooting has begun."
Is there some part of that that you do not understand? - SummerPhD (talk) 03:55, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
What did I do now? You have something against me always, it's an animated film, and for your information an animated film can have its own article when it's in or just out of pre-production. And it has a confirmed start date of May 28 and viewers want to get information about the film and will contribute eventually. Koala15 will confirm this. --Captain Assassin! «TCG» 10:16, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
Again, contrary to what you are saying, "Films that have not been confirmed by reliable sources to have commenced principal photography should not have their own articles...Sources must be used to confirm the start of principal photography after shooting has begun." "In the case of animated films, reliable sources must confirm that the film is clearly out of the pre-production process..." Is there some part of this that is not clear to you? Again,after numerous discussions and blocks, you seem to not understand the basic notability guideline for films. How is this possible? As you seem to be quite interested in starting articles about films, you really need to be very familiar with WP:NFF. You clearly are not. - SummerPhD (talk) 15:17, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
I clearly understand all of it, but see I think you've something personally with me. Last time you didn't proposed only film articles, you did with even biographies which were kept after nominations. And now you again with an animated film. I've many examples of animation films which are/were made even sources do/did not existed to confirm "out of the pre-production process". The other option is to redirect it to its adapting article until sources say something about its pre-production. By the way I'm not creating articles until filming begins anymore. Ask Bgwhite, I always ask him for review and creation for an article. Do these articles Peanuts (film) and Kung Fu Panda 3 have a source which says it's filming or out of pre-production? You better take this to AFD or redirect it to Pixels (film). --Captain Assassin! «TCG» 17:37, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
Clearly, you did not "understand all of it". You stated "...an animated film can have its own article when it's in or just out of pre-production....", which is directly contradicted by WP:NFF.
"...biographies which were kept after nominations..." Like Joel Johnstone or Ed Oxenbould? Or like S. Craig Zahler where the prod was removed by someone who "forgot" to sign in? Or maybe Courtney Eaton, who still has zero notable roles (prod removed with no discussion, I apparently forgot to take that one to AfD)? Perhaps Kennedi Clements, with one role (prod removed with no discussion)? I'm not seeing any that were kept after discussion of any kind.
The "other option" would be a great way to make sure you keep "credit" for another bad article.
How many times do you need to be warned to follow the basic guidelines? Would another trip to AN/I fix it? - SummerPhD (talk) 18:32, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
Well the film is live-action with animation that will be added in post-production, so i think we should just redirect the article until it begins filming. Since it would be a shame to delete a nice article like this. Koala15 (talk) 19:13, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm sorry SummerPhD, no offence but Koala15 knows the respect of articles, you should just put it to redirect when it is a notable article. Now it is settled. --Captain Assassin! «TCG» 02:37, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
Before lecturing me on "the respect of articles", learn the guidelines. That will preempt the need to discuss what to do with your projects that shouldn't have been started. - SummerPhD (talk) 03:33, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
I've read those and I'm following them. Now please don't stretch this topic, it was an animated film which got me confused (like "out of pre-production") with others. Now let it go and relax, I'll not create anymore. I always ask Bgwhite, whenever I've a project. --Captain Assassin! «TCG» 03:40, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

April 2014[edit]

Information icon Before adding a category to an article, as you did to Takehiro Hira, please make sure that the subject of the article really belongs in the category that you specified according to Wikipedia's categorization guidelines. Categories must also be supported by the article's verifiable content. Categories may be removed if they are deemed incorrect for the subject matter. Thank you. Michitaro (talk) 23:23, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Michitaro, with editors that have been around here for awhile, it is best not to leave a standard Twinkle message. Many find this offensive. Bgwhite (talk) 01:13, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
@Michitaro: Actually it happened mistakenly to some articles in Japanese category, it wasn't not the only article with which it happened. Look HERE and HERE, I reverted all those edits but this article, I didn't see it. --Captain Assassin! «TCG» 03:03, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
Sorry about that. I'm traveling and just had to quickly do something on what seemed like a curious set of edits. I must confess I have not seen your name before. Michitaro (talk) 08:53, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
Well Michitaro, now you've seen, so don't forget it :). --Captain Assassin! «TCG» 10:22, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
