WikiCup 2015 launch newsletter[edit]

Trophy.png

Round one of the 2015 WikiCup has begun! So far we've had around 80 signups, which close on February 5. If you have not already signed up and want to do so, then you can add your name here. There have been changes to to several of the points scores for various categories, and the addition of Peer Reviews for the first time. These will work in the same manner as Good Article Reviews, and all of the changes are summarised here.

Remember that only the top 64 scoring competitors will make it through to the second round, and one of the new changes this year is that all scores must be claimed within two weeks of an article's promotion or appearance, so don't forget to add them to your submissions pages! If you are concerned that your nomination will not receive the necessary reviews, and you hope to get it promoted before the end of the round, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. However, please remember to continue to offer reviews at GAN, FAC and all the other pages that require them to prevent any backlogs which could otherwise be caused by the Cup. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup and the judges are reachable on their talk pages. Good luck!

Morgan Freeman[edit]

I know it's not the source you gave. The source you gave didn't say that filming had begun and that was dated back in September. The source I gave was from yesterday and said that production hadn't started yet either. As far as I can tell from the various sources is that principle photography hasn't started yet. So I removed the film per WP:CRYSTAL. LADY LOTUSTALK 16:41, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Copyright problem[edit]

The page Draft:Avatar 4, which you created, was marked by CorenSearchBot as a copyright infringement. You removed the copyright notice, with the edit summary "it's just a draft", and continued to edit the page, with no attempt to remove the copyright-infringing text. Perhaps this means that you think for some reason that being a "draft" somehow makes a page exempt from the law on copyright. However, it doesn't, so the page has been deleted. Please do not [post content to Wikipedia that you have copied from elsewhere, as doing so is almost always a copyright infringement.

VisualEditor News 2015—#1[edit]

VisualEditor-logo.svg

Since the last newsletter, the Editing Team has fixed many bugs and worked on VisualEditor's appearance, the coming Citoid reference service, and support for languages with complex input requirements. Status reports are posted on Mediawiki.org. Upcoming plans are posted at the VisualEditor roadmap.

The Wikimedia Foundation has named its top priorities for this quarter (January to March). The first priority is making VisualEditor ready for deployment by default to all new users and logged-out users at the remaining large Wikipedias. You can help identify these requirements. There will be weekly triage meetings which will be open to volunteers beginning Wednesday, 11 February 2015 at 12:00 (noon) PST (20:00 UTC). Tell Vice President of Engineering Damon Sicore, Product Manager James Forrester and other team members which bugs and features are most important to you. The decisions made at these meetings will determine what work is necessary for this quarter's goal of making VisualEditor ready for deployment to new users. The presence of volunteers who enjoy contributing MediaWiki code is particularly appreciated. Information about how to join the meeting will be posted at mw:Talk:VisualEditor/Portal shortly before the meeting begins. 

Due to some breaking changes in MobileFrontend and VisualEditor, VisualEditor was not working correctly on the mobile site for a couple of days in early January. The teams apologize for the problem.

Recent improvements[edit]

The new design for VisualEditor aligns with MediaWiki's Front-End Standards as led by the Design team. Several new versions of the OOjs UI library have also been released, and these also affect the appearance of VisualEditor and other MediaWiki software extensions. Most changes were minor, like changing the text size and the amount of white space in some windows. Buttons are consistently color-coded to indicate whether the action:

  • starts a new task, like opening the Save page dialog:  blue ,
  • takes a constructive action, like inserting a citation:  green ,
  • might remove or lose your work, like removing a link:  red , or
  • is neutral, like opening a link in a new browser window:  gray.

The TemplateData editor has been completely re-written to use a different design (T67815) based on the same OOjs UI system as VisualEditor (T73746). This change fixed a couple of existing bugs (T73077 and T73078) and improved usability.

Search and replace in long documents is now faster. It does not highlight every occurrence if there are more than 100 on-screen at once (T78234).

Editors at the Hebrew and Russian Wikipedias requested the ability to use VisualEditor in the "Article Incubator" or drafts namespace (T86688, T87027). If your community would like VisualEditor enabled on another namespace on your wiki, then you can file a request in Phabricator. Please include a link to a community discussion about the requested change.

Looking ahead[edit]

The Editing team will soon add auto-fill features for citations. The Citoid service takes a URL or DOI for a reliable source, and returns a pre-filled, pre-formatted bibliographic citation. After creating it, you will be able to change or add information to the citation, in the same way that you edit any other pre-existing citation in VisualEditor. Support for ISBNs, PMIDs, and other identifiers is planned. Later, editors will be able to contribute to the Citoid service's definitions for each website, to improve precision and reduce the need for manual corrections.

We will need editors to help test the new design of the special character inserter, especially if you speak Welsh, Breton, or another language that uses diacritics or special characters extensively. The new version should be available for testing next week. Please contact User:Whatamidoing (WMF) if you would like to be notified when the new version is available. After the special character tool is completed, VisualEditor will be deployed to all users at Phase 5 Wikipedias. This will affect about 50 mid-size and smaller Wikipedias, including Afrikaans, Azerbaijani, Breton, Kyrgyz, Macedonian, Mongolian, Tatar, and Welsh. The date for this change has not been determined.

Copyright problem[edit]

Hi! I've removed the plot section from The Hateful Eight after I counted five separate copyright violations there by (I think) five different editors. You appear to have been one of them: the plot summary you added with this edit was largely copied from here or some similar source for the company's press release. As you must know, that is not acceptable here. As our template {{Copyvio plot}} (now on the talk page of the article) clearly says: "Plot descriptions cannot be copied from other sources, including official sources, unless these can be verified to be public domain or licensed compatibly with Wikipedia. They must be written in original language to comply with Wikipedia's copyright policy. In addition, they should only briefly summarize the plot; detailed plot descriptions may constitute a derivative work". This clumsily hand-written note is instead of the usual large and unsightly template. Regards, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 00:29, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

@Ssven2: I'm willing to help whenever you say, but it'll be better to start after the Argo review.

Dirty Grandpa[edit]

Hello Captain Assassin!

I am here to double check with you about Dirty Grandpa's last days of filming. It's been said in the first sentence of the article under filming that the film would be filming in Florida, which hasn't happened yet. Is there any chance that the source was mistaken? Or unless the film would take a break then return filming in Florida later? Thanks, Callmemirela (talk) 01:15, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

@Callmemirela: Might be, but I don't think so because it is going to wrap this week and I don't see any other source saying that. So, I changed the phrase that "it was intended to be filmed," for a better reading. Anything else? --Captain Assassin! «TCG» 03:41, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Snowden's great escape (Danish documentary)[edit]

I think we need an article about this movie. If you websearch for the title, there is considerable sourcing. I included some in the Citizenfour article, "related films" section. Want to give it a try? The movie itself is on the DR web site though there is some annoying IP geolocation stuff making it inconvenient to access from outside Europe (it was viewable from the US a month or so ago but not now). If you get an article started, I can probably contribute to it. I've watched the movie and it's quite good. 50.0.205.75 (talk) 06:43, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Yeah I'll start the article in a few hours. Thanks for letting me know. --Captain Assassin! «TCG» 10:38, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 March newsletter[edit]

One of several of Godot13's quality submissions during round 1

That's it, the first round is done, sign-ups are closed and we're into round 2. 64 competitors made it into this round, and are now broken into eight groups of eight. The top two of each group will go through to round 3, and then the top scoring 16 "wildcards" across all groups. Round 1 saw some interesting work on some very important articles, with the round leader Australia Freikorp (submissions) owing most of his 622 points scored to a Featured Article on the 2001 film Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within which qualified for a times-two multiplier. This is a higher score than in previous years, as Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) had 500 points in 2014 at the end of round 1, and our very own judge, Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) led round 1 with 601 points in 2013.

In addition to Freikorp's work, some other important articles and pictures were improved during round one, here's a snapshot of a few of them:
