Hello Chamal

One day I went to your LRRP page and just see who is the author and then I went to see your page but I saw you were retired. I was sad because Wikipedia needs people like you but do you know what my mouth said when i saw, you are back again? "WOW! He is back again!!” Welcome back bro :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rapa123 (talkcontribs) 12:02, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, and nice to meet you :) Chamal TC 13:59, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

WikiCup 2011 April newsletter

Round 2 of the 2011 WikiCup is over, and the new round will begin on 1 May. Note that any points scored in the interim (that is, for content promoted or reviews completed on 29-30 April) can be claimed in the next round, but please do not start updating your submissions' pages until the next round has begun. Fewer than a quarter of our original contestants remain; 32 enter round 3, and, in two months' time, only 16 will progress to our penultimate round. Scotland Casliber (submissions), who led Pool F, was our round champion, with 411 points, while 7 contestants scored between 200 and 300 points. At the other end of the scale, a score of 41 was high enough to reach round 3; more than five times the score required to reach round 2, and competition will no doubt become tighter now we're approaching the later rounds. Those progressing to round 3 were spread fairly evenly across the pools; 4 progressed from each of pools A, B, E and H, while 3 progressed from both pools C and F. Pools D and G were the most successful; each had 5 contestants advancing.

This round saw our first good topic points this year; congratulations to Zanzibar Hurricanehink (submissions) and Assyria Nergaal (submissions) who also led pool H and pool B respectively. However, there remain content types for which no points have yet been scored; featured sounds, featured portals and featured topics. In addition to prizes for leaderboard positions, the WikiCup awards other prizes; for instance, last year, a prize was awarded to Democratic Republic of the Congo Candlewicke (submissions) (who has been eliminated) for his work on In The News. For this reason, working on more unusual content could be even more rewarding than usual!

Sorry this newsletter is going out a little earlier than expected- there is a busy weekend coming up! A running total of claims can be seen here. 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 GAC, 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, or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start receiving or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send. J Milburn and The ed17 19:11, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Siam Cup dyk

I have improved more on the competition area of the Siam Cup. The C of E. God Save The Queen! (talk) 12:55, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

I've replied at T:TDYK. This is good enough for me :) Chamal TC 14:15, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
I thank you for doing that and I saw that you had but it may be something wrong with my browser (have you been having that no colour on diffs as well?) but your tick and affirmation seem to have disappeared from the DYK page when I checked it earlier today. I haven't checked now but I imagine that no-ones noticed. The C of E. God Save The Queen! (talk) 14:11, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, never mind. It's back now. The C of E. God Save The Queen! (talk) 14:12, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Thank you Victuallers (talk) 00:03, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Machan, can you do something for this? http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Whirlwind_(band)&action=edit&redlink=1 Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rapa123 (talkcontribs) 05:28, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply; I was really busy the past few weeks. Basically, what you need to do here is provide some good sources (look for stuff like newspaper/magazine articles on them) and write it in a neutral way. If you can't find sources, then the article doesn't belong here. I don't think I'll be able to help with it any time soon though. Sorry about that. Chamal TC 08:33, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
I did provide enough references for this article. if you can see deletion log you will see.

GOCE drive invitation

Greetings from the Guild of Copy Editors
Writing Magnifying.PNG

The latest GOCE backlog elimination drive is under way! It began on 1 July and so far 18 people have signed up to help us reduce the number of articles in need of copyediting.

This drive will give a 50% bonus for articles edited from the GOCE requests page. Although we have cleared the backlog of 2009 articles there are still 3,935 articles needing copyediting and any help, no matter how small, would be appreciated.

We are appealing to all GOCE members, and any other editors who wish to participate, to come and help us reduce the number of articles needing copyediting, as well as the backlog of requests. If you have not signed up yet, why not take a look at the current signatories and help us by adding your name and copyediting a few articles. Barnstars will be given to anyone who edits more than 4,000 words, with special awards for the top 5 in the categories: "Number of articles", "Number of words", and "Number of articles of over 5,000 words".
