Aloha[edit]

Started to get back into Wikipedia again. Would you like to do collaborate work on Mauna Loa, Shield volcano, or perhaps Olympus Mons? All good articles for their own reasons to work on, all articles I've had on the burner since 2012 at least (what is time on Wikipedia, I don't seem to have a grasp of it anymore) and never gotten around to finishing. I just don't have the patience to trawl through it all alone anymore, I don't think. ResMar 03:12, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

I will help if I have time. Volcanoguy 17:16, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
I'm always willing to help. Of course, classes and work keep me busy, but count me in! ceranthor 22:14, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
FYI I am currently collecting information to expand/rewrite the Level Mountain article. Volcanoguy 08:08, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
When is your spring break? Perhaps we could get some work done then. I have a little time for volunteering but I've decided to bulk it to matters at the Signpost. Still, I really want to finish these projects...perhaps an IRC discussion is in order. ResMar 06:44, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
It starts officially on Friday. I'll have a little bit of time while I'm in Florida, but not a lot. I haven't been on IRC in ages, but let me know if you want to figure things out. ceranthor 20:56, 4 March 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:

Newspapers.com check-in[edit]

Hello Ceranthor,

You are receiving this message because you have a one-year subscription to Newspapers.com through the Wikipedia Library. This is a brief update, to remind you about that access:

  • Remember, if you find this source useful for your Wikipedia work, to include citations with links on Wikipedia. Links to partner resources are one of the few ways we can demonstrate usage and demand for accounts to our partners. The greater the linkage, the greater the likelihood a useful partnership will be renewed. Also, keep in mind that part of Newspapers.com is open access via the clipping function. Clippings allow you to identify particular articles, extract them from the original full sheet newspaper, and share them through unique URLs. Wikipedia users who click on a clipping link in your citation list will be able to access that particular article, and the full page of the paper if they come from the clipping, without needing to subscribe to Newspapers.com. For more information about how to use clippings, see http://www.newspapers.com/basics/#h-clips .

WikiCup 2015 May newsletter[edit]

C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy) is a long-period comet discovered on 17 August 2014 by Terry Lovejoy; and is one of several Featured Pictures worked up by India The Herald (submissions) during the second round.

The second round one has all wrapped up, and round three has now begun! Congratulations to the 34 contestants who have made it through, but well done and thank you to all contestants who took part in our second round. Leading the way overall was Belarus Cas Liber (submissions) in Group B with a total of 777 points for a variety of contributions including Good Articles on Corona Borealis and Microscopium - both of which received the maximum bonus.

Special credit must be given to a number of high importance articles improved during the second round.

The points varied across groups, with the lowest score required to gain automatic qualification was 68 in Group A - meanwhile the second place score in Group H was 404, which would have been high enough to win all but one of the other Groups! As well as the top two of each group automatically going through to the third round, a minimum score of 55 was required for a wildcard competitor to go through. We had a three-way tie at 55 points and all three have qualified for the next round, in the spirit of fairness. The third round ends on June 28, with the top two in each group progressing automatically while the remaining 16 highest scorers across all four groups go through as wildcards. Good luck to all competitors for the third round! Figureskatingfan (talk · contribs · email), Miyagawa (talk · contribs · email) and Sturmvogel 66 (talk · contribs · email) 16:26, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
