What's the status on this? I would like WikiCup points for this one, but the deadline is in a week and I still don't have a review...any chance you could finish soon? Thanks. Go Phightins! 19:39, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Yes. It's a definite pass, and I can finish the review tonight. In all likelihood, I will not be editing for a week or two after this, but can finish the remaining reviews soon. —Theodore! (talk) (contribs) 00:16, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

WikiProject Good Articles Recruitment Centre[edit]

Good Article Recruitment - Completion Award.png
Hello! Now, some of you might be wondering why there is a Good article icon with a bunch of stars around (to the right). The answer? WikiProject Good articles will be launching a Recruitment Centre very soon! The centre will allow all users to be taught how to review Good article nominations by experts just like you! However, in order for the Recruitment Centre to open in the first place, we need some volunteers:
  • Recruiters: The main task of a recruiter is to teach users that have never reviewed a Good article nomination how to review one. To become a recruiter, all you have to do is meet this criteria. If we don't get at least 5-10 recruiters to start off with, the Recruitment Centre will not open. If interested, make sure you meet the criteria, read the process and add your name to the list of recruiters. (One of the great things about being a recruiter is that there is no set requirement of what must be taught and when. Instead, all the content found in the process section is a guideline of the main points that should be addressed during a recruitment session...you can also take an entire different approach if you wish!) If you think you will not have the time to recruit any users at this time but are still interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still add your name to the list of recruiters but just fill in the "Status" parameter with "Not Available".
  • Co-Director: The current Director for the centre is me (Dom497). Another user that would be willing to help with some of the tasks would be helpful. Tasks include making sure recruiters are doing what they should be (teaching!), making sure all recruitments are archived correctly, updating pages as needed, answering any questions, and distributing the feedback form. If interested, please contact me (Dom497).
  • Nominators, please read this: If you are not interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still help. In some cases a nominator may have an issue with an "inexperienced" editor (the recruitee) reviewing one of their nominations. To minimize the chances of this happening, if you are fine with a recruitee reviewing one of your nominations under the supervision of the recruiter, please add your name to the list at the bottom of this page. By adding your name to this list, chances are that your nomination will be reviewed more quickly as the recruitee will be asked to choose a nomination from the list of nominators that are OK with them reviewing the article.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing this program bring new reviewers to the Good article community and all the positive things it will bring along.

A message will be sent out to all recruiters regarding the date when the Recruitment Centre will open when it is determined. The message will also contain some further details to clarify things that may be a bit confusing.--Dom497 (talk)

WikiProject Good Articles Recruitment Centre[edit]

Good Article Recruitment - Completion Award.png
Hello! Now, some of you might have already received a similar message a little while ago regarding the Recruitment Centre, so if you have, there is no need to read the rest of this. This message is directed to users who have reviewed over 15 Good article nominations and are not part of WikiProject Good articles (the first message I sent out went to only WikiProject members).

So for those who haven't heard about the Recruitment Centre yet, you may be wondering why there is a Good article icon with a bunch of stars around it (to the right). The answer? WikiProject Good articles will be launching a Recruitment Centre very soon! The centre will allow all users to be taught how to review Good article nominations by experts just like you!

If we don't get at least 5-10 recruiters to start off with (at the time this message was sent out, 2 recruiters have volunteered), the Recruitment Centre will not open. If interested, make sure you meet the criteria, read the process and add your name to the list of recruiters. (One of the great things about being a recruiter is that there is no set requirement of what must be taught and when. Instead, all the content found in the process section is a guideline of the main points that should be addressed during a recruitment session...you can also take an entire different approach if you wish!)

Hi, I'm Fylbecatulous. I wanted to let you know that I saw the page you reviewed, Bull swamp creek, and have un-reviewed it again. If you have any questions, please ask them on my talk page. Thank you. Fylbecatulous talk 16:18, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Gaddafi[edit]

Hey Theodore! Chances are, my internet is going to be down this coming week, so I probably won't get the chance to make any alterations to the Gaddafi page. Nevertheless, feel free to finish your GA review whenever convenient and I shall respond to your comments when I can. Best, Midnightblueowl (talk) 10:39, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Hey there Theodore; just a note to say that I am available again to respond to any comments on the Gaddafi GA review. Best, Midnightblueowl (talk) 14:05, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
Just checking that you haven't forgotten the GA review... Midnightblueowl (talk) 14:03, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, there's no real rush on the Gaddafi page; I just wanted to check that you hadn't disappeared off Wikipedia forever! Midnightblueowl (talk) 10:24, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
Hey Theodore! I've responded to BoogaLouie's comment, which I take great issue with. My opinion is that they wish to accuse the article of NPOV in order to push it into a very western-centric, explicitly anti-Gaddafi POV direction. I don't think they are consciously doing this, and accept their good faith on the issue, but it concerns me deeply. But nevertheless; you are the GA reviewer in this situation, so I shall allow you to make your decision based on all the information. Best, Midnightblueowl (talk) 13:43, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
No worries! I was not criticising your comment on my talk page, more BoogaLouie's assertions over at the GAR page. I have had arguments with them over the trajectory of this page before (they have been very critical of much of my work there), and I felt – rightly or wrongly – that they were launching personal attacks against myself during that time, namely in implying that I was a Gaddafist apologist. So that might explain why I've been a little over-defensive on the issue. Best, Midnightblueowl (talk) 18:41, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

We Can Do It!.jpg
  • Progress report: Thus far we have reduced the number of May/June 2012 articles to just 124 articles, so we're on the right track. Unfortunately, for the first time in GOCE history, the number of articles in the backlog has actually gone up during this drive. While all participants are currently doing a fine job, we just don't have as many of them as we have had in the past. We have over 500 editors on our mailing list, but only 18 editors who have done a copy edit for the drive. If you're receiving this newsletter, it's because you have an interest in copy editing. Join the drive! Even if you only copy edit one article, it helps. Imagine how much progress we could make if everyone chipped in just one article.

Nomination of 2012 Azana Spa shootings for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article 2012 Azana Spa shootings is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/2012 Azana Spa shootings until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Transcendence (talk) 18:57, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

I did not realize how recently it was created, and my apologies for the haste. At the same time, many of these kinds of articles are not updated, and a recently created article with the initial content did not meet GNG. It obviously does, and I will withdraw the nom ASAP. —Theodore! (talk) (contribs) 04:22, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

DRN[edit]

Thank you for volunteering to help resolve disputes at the Dispute Resolution Noticeboard. We're always in need of experienced editors. Just a couple of suggestions: First, please be sure that a dispute has been extensively discussed on article (or user) talk pages before opening it for discussion. If we do not insist on that (as all content dispute resolution requires), it contradicts Wikipedia's presumption that editors will work things out through collaboration and discussion by allowing editors to not even really try to do so. Second, be sure to add yourself to the volunteer list so that our status bot will recognize your edits as those by a volunteer, not one of the disputants. Both of those are just technicalities that we all have to learn, so no big deal, and I look forward to seeing you around DRN. Thanks again! Best regards, TransporterMan (TALK) 22:03, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

Begich and Landrieu[edit]

Hi, Theodore! Just wanted to let you know that I responded on my talk page. As I said there, I think your analysis is spot on, but I think that the user in question needs to address his "disputes" on the article talk pages. The "cases" imply his issue is with me and me alone, and while I was the user who undid his (very problematic) edits, I don't intend to engage further aside from ensuring wp:npov and wp:blp aren't trampled in his attempts to get his partisan viewpoints into those articles. I hope this (and the slightly greater explanation in response to you on my talk page) help clarify. Really admire your good faith and willingness to try to help others resolve issues, though. Please hang on to that!  :) user:j (talk) 05:10, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

You have a reply at User talk:GabrielD2[edit]

Thanks for your comments and concerns. I have a full reply on my talk page. I think this experience is an opportunity to help make some simple, yet seriously overdue changes that, I think, will go a long way to improving the attitudes I spoke of.

Request for help in dispute resolution.[edit]

Hello. I found your name in a list of volunteers to help in a dispute resolution. I picked you as you are interested in history, and this topic has some relevance to this. I recently opened this dispute to prevent the escalation of an edit war with a "few" users who keep reverting back to their erroneous edit. The case in regard is with reference to the pages "Pashtun People" and "Pashtun diaspora" .

Please see Wikipedia dispute resolution notice board for details. In a nutshell, the users are trying to increase the number of Pashtuns in India from 11,000 to 11 million. The users cannot justify this increase. This has been going on for the last couple of months.

Please help if you can, else can you please point me in the right direction?

Thanks. Observerpashtun (talk) 04:56, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Keep Visual History but change the name: History of Visual Culture[edit]

I do agree with argemedia: "I am really sorry to say that to delete or to redirect Visual History would be a historical mistake for our common Encyclopedia. Visual History is a new science. Of course, it deals with Visual Culture, but it is a History of this Visual Culture, as you have a general History, a History of Art or Arts, a History of Medias, a History of Images. This History of Visual Culture is a global history of all visual matters : images, objects, arts, architectures, landscapes... It has been founded with the World Dictionnary of Images (in fact, not only images, but all aspects of visual culture from Prehistory) written by 475 authors from all over the World (publisher : Nouveau Monde). Nevertheless there is a problem with the name in English, because Visual History could mean also a way to show History through various images. So, my suggestion is to keep it but to change the name in order to make it more clear for everybody in English: History of Visual Culture. I may do this if everybody agree. argemedia" malexartMalexart (talk) 07:29, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

GAN December 2013 Backlog Drive[edit]

Symbol support vote.svg
Hello! A GAN Backlog Drive will begin in less than 4 days!

In past Backlog Drives, the goal was to reduce the backlog of Good article nominations. In the upcoming drive, another goal will be added - raising as much money as we can for the Wikimedia Foundation. How will this work? Well, its pretty simple. Any user interested in donating can submit a pledge at the Backlog Drive page (linked above). The pledge should mention the amount of money the user is willing to donate per review. For example, if a user pledges 5 cents per review and 100 nominations are reviewed, the total donation amount is $5.00.

At the time this message was sent out, two users have submitted pledges for a total of 8 cents per review. All pledges, no matter how much money, are greatly appreciated. Also, in no way is this saying you must make a pledge.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or leave a message on the Backlog Drive talk page. And remember, there are less than 4 days before the drive starts!--EdwardsBot (talk) 03:10, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

I look forward to working together. Cheers! KeithbobTalk 01:53, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Shouldn't current "Nightclub" entry be re-titled "Dance Club"?[edit]

Please see the Wikipedia "Nightclub" entry.

The term "nightclub" was well-established (long before the advent of discotheques) as a term primarily referencing what's also known as a "cabaret."

In the US at least, the term "nightclub" continues to refer to a range of establishments open predominantly at night (potentially offering food or alcohol) that exist primarily to offer various forms of entertainment. Dance clubs are a form of nightclub, but so, too (unquestionably), are jazz clubs, comedy clubs, and many other forms of nighttime entertainment venues. The Wikipedia entry titled "nightclub," which discusses only dance clubs, is therefore grossly misleading.

The "nightclub" entry should be retitled "dance club," and an entirely new entry for "nightclub" should be created, surveying the range of venues -- or at the very least, recast as a "disambiguation" entry linking to entries for the various types of venues that the term "nightclub" subsumes.

I've entered the above as topic on the entry's "talk" page. It appears that this matter has been discussed under some of the other talk topics, but it hasn't been resolved.

To some extent, the problem may be a divergence in terminology between the US and the UK (where "nightclub" is apparently taken for granted as referring to dance clubs); the divergence may also be generational (derivative of youth-culture colloquialisms like "clubbing" or "club kids," generally associated with dance clubs). Ironically, I stumbled on this situation as a 64-year-old gay man from New York, now living in California, when I was seeking material on the 1970s disco scene, and the entry for "Discotheque" redirected me to "Nightclub" -- as if the two terms had an identical meaning.

Given that my father was a jazz afficionado who hung out at the 52nd Street jazz clubs in 1940s-50s NYC (my longtime sense of what constitutes a "nightclub"), I was utterly shocked!

What do you think of my retitling/disambiguation idea?

How can I most productively proceed in trying to resolve this without gargantuan effort? I'm not able to monitor the "talk" page constantly, and (as a Wikipedia non-member) I'm not sure whether the proper metaphor for what I fear I'm confronting is "major surgery" or "quicksand," but I'd be happy to receive and respond to email: mitchell@mitchellhalberstadt.net 173.241.20.165 (talk) 13:48, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

  • You make many valid points, but I would wait until you receive more feedback on the article talk page. It looks like someone else has already agreed with you there. Good luck with your efforts! —Theodore! (talk) (contribs) 22:55, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

GOCE December 2013 Blitz wrap-up and January Drive invitation[edit]

December Notes from the Guild of Copy Editors
Writing Magnifying.PNG

The December blitz ran from December 8–14. The theme for this blitz was articles tied in some way to religion. Seven editors knocked out 20 articles over the course of the week. Our next blitz will be in February, with a theme to be determined. Feel free to make theme suggestions at the Guild talk page!

The January 2014 Backlog elimination drive is a month-long effort to reduce the size of the copy edit backlog. The drive begins on January 1 at 00:00 (UTC) and ends on January 31 at 23:59 (UTC). Our goals are to copy edit all articles tagged in October and November 2012 and complete all requests placed before the end of 2013. Barnstars will be awarded to anyone who copy edits at least one article, and special awards will be given to the top five in the following categories: "Number of articles", "Number of words", "Number of articles of over 5,000 words", "Number of articles tagged in October and November 2012", and "Longest article". We hope to see you there!

The March 2014 backlog elimination drive is a month-long effort to reduce the backlog of articles in need of copyediting. The drive begins on March 1 at 00:00 (UTC) and ends on March 31 at 23:59 (UTC). Our goals are to copyedit all articles tagged in December 2012 and January 2013 and to complete all requests placed in January 2014. Barnstars will be awarded to anyone who copyedits at least one article, and special awards will be given to the top five in the following categories: number of articles, number of words, number of articles over 5,000 words, number of articles tagged in December 2012 and January 2013 and the longest article.

March 2014 GAN Backlog Drive[edit]

It's that time again! Starting on March 1, there will be another GAN Backlog Drive! There will be several changes compared to previous drives:

  • This drive will introduce a new component to it; a point system. In a nutshell, older nominations are worth more points than newer nominations. The top 3 participants who have the points will be awarded the Golden, Silver, or Bronze Wikipedia Puzzle Piece Trophy, respectively.
  • Unlike the December 2013 Backlog Drive, earning an additional barnstar if you reached your goal has been removed.
  • The allowance to have insufficient reviews has been lowered to 2 before being disqualified.
  • An exception to the rule that all reviews must be completed before the deadline has been created.

Also, something that I thought I would share with all of you is that we raised $20.88 (USD) for the WMF in the December 2013 drive. It may not sound like a lot but considering that that was raised just because we reviewed articles, I would say that's pretty good! With that success, pledges can be made for the upcoming drive if you wish.

More info regarding the drive and full descriptions regarding the changes to this drive can be found on the the drive page. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a message on the drive talk page.

I look forward to your participation and hope that because of it, some day the backlog will be gone!

Voting system DRN[edit]

Hi, Theodore. I'd appreciate it if you'd post another friendly reminder on User talk:MarkusSchulze. If, as I hope and assume, he's acting in good faith here, another reminder doesn't hurt. But if he were considering taking a more wikilawyerly stance, and participating only insofar as he saw things going his way, I think that seeing somebody else paying attention would help dissuade such behavior. Homunq () 16:06, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Theodore!. I am Mark Miller (Maleko Mela), a volunteer at DRN along with you. I will be closing the Voting system filing because there is an open RFC on the talk page that involves this dispute. Please let me know if you object and how you wish to proceed if that is the case.--Maleko Mela (talk) 01:56, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know about this; I agree completely. I shouldn't have opened discussion in the first place given the RfC; I think we should let that run its course, then revisit the DRN thread, if necessary, later on. —Theodore! (talk) (contribs) 02:45, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Antigovernment Page a disambiguation page or stub?[edit]

Hi I didnt understand what happened during dispute resolution on the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Dispute_resolution_noticeboard#Southern_Poverty_Law_Center I asked for guidance from a senior editor on a specific question: Is the antigovernment webpage a stub or a disambiguation page? I wasnt able to participate in the particular 36 hours that you were able to donate time to answer the question. I believe I made edits prior to your deadline but I assume you felt as thought the primary questions were answered. Whether so or not I was hoping as a senior editor you could offer me your opinion on the question (in bold is it WP:Stub or WP:D?). Thanks. Mrdthree (talk) 05:09, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Theodore!, I wanted to let you know I had closed the Southern Poverty Law Center dispute for a couple of reasons. There was no participation from the listed parties beyond the filing editor and went past the time we generally wait for everyone to participate, but also because this is mainly a "one against consensus" dispute. Technically if the editor could show a good argument per policy and guidelines that the consensus should change and everyone listed showed up, we could have kept it going. But it appears that the general consensus of the uninvolved editors was that linking to the disambiguation page was against guidelines. The best solution would be for editors to collaborate on creating a new page specifically for a link to "antigovernment" or to use existing page articles that could be anything from "Sedition" to "Conspiracy", depending on how the article is using they term. As usual, if you object in any reason, please feel free to re-open the filing, even if it falls into the archives.--Maleko Mela (talk) 23:32, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
Sounds good; I agree with your reasoning and will not reopen the case. Thanks for all of your hard work at DRN! —Theodore! (talk) (contribs) 02:08, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
My work has been thrown out. I am not worthy of the board so I encourage you to continue as I have just lost any further interest in the place for the moment.

Progress report: We reduced our article backlog from 2,987 articles to 2,236 articles in May, the lowest backlog total since we began keeping records in 2009! Since at least 300 new articles were tagged during May, that means we copy edited over 1,000 articles in a single month. Amazing work, everyone!

Election: You can nominate yourself or others for the role of Coordinator for the second half of 2014 here. Nominations will be accepted until June 14. Voting will begin on June 15 and will conclude on June 28.

HISTORY BOOK: “A Mighty Fortress..."[edit]

17 July 2014, From Huntsville a city in north Alabama, U.S.A.

Dear Theodore!,

Earlier I sent this request to another Teahouse reviewer but have not received a response so I am appealing to you for assistance. We want to cite an important history book, entitled “A Mighty Fortress of Faith” It has been submitted and is awaiting approval.

I am interested in your review and assistance for a submission I have been working and adjusting. A Wiki reviewer suggested I seek the assistance of Teahouse. I saw your interest in history and thought you may be the person to ask. We are attempting to get Wikipedia to accept an article about a book of significant regional history starting with the U.S.A. pre-Civil War era. If so, do you have access to Wiki sandbox articles, or do I need to send you the complete article? Are your interested? If not, could you recommend another reviewer?

WikiProject Good articles Future GAN Backlog Drive[edit]

Hello everyone! Hope you've all been having a great summer!

TheQ Editor recently proposed the idea of having another Backlog Drive in either September/October or November/December of this year. For those of you who have participated in the past two drives you know I was the one who organized them, however, come September, this will be my most important year in school so I will not be able to coordinate this drive (if it happens). TheQ Editor has volunteered to be a coordinator for the drive. If any of you would like to co-coordinator, please notify TheQ Editor on his talk page.

If you would be interested in participating in a Backlog Drive sometime before the end of this year, please notify TheQ Editor. Also, make sure to specify what month(s) work best for you.

At the time this message was sent out, the backlog was at 520 nominations. Since May, the backlog has been steadily increasing and we are currently near an all time high. Even though the backlog will not disappear over one drive, this drive can lead to several others which will (hopefully) lead to the day where there is no longer a backlog.

As always, the more participants, the better, and everyone is encouraged to participate!

GA Cup[edit]

Hello everyone! We hope you have all been having a great summer!

As we all know, the recent GAN Backlog Drives have not had any big impact on the backlog. Because of that, me (Dom497), Figureskatingfan, and TheQ Editor have worked on an idea that could possibly finally put a dent into the massive backlog. Now, I will admit, the idea isn't entirely ours as we have took the general idea of the WikiCup and brought it over to WikiProject Good Articles. But anyways, here's what we have in mind:

For all of you that do not know what the WikiCup is, it is an annual competition between several editors to see who can get the most Good Articles, Featured Article's, Did You Know's, etc. Based of this, we propose to you the GA Cup. This competition will only focus on reviewing Good articles.

For more info on the proposal, click here. As a FYI, the proposal page is not what the final product will look like (if you do go ahead with this idea). It will look very similar to WikiCup's page(s).

The discussion for the proposal will take place here. Please let us know if you are interested, have any concerns, things to consider, etc.

WikiProject Good Articles - GA Cup[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup
Symbol support vote.svg

WikiProject Good articles is holding a new competition, the GA Cup, from October 1, 2014 - March 28, 2015. The Cup will be based on reviewing Good article nominations; for each review, points will be awarded with bonuses for older nominations, longer articles and comprehensive reviews. All participants will start off in one group and the highest scoring participants will go through to the second round. At the moment six rounds are planned, but this may change based on participant numbers.

Some of you may ask: what is the purpose for a competition of this type? Currently, there is a backlog of about 500 unreviewed Good article nominations, almost an all time high. It is our hope that we can decrease the backlog in a fun way, through friendly competition.

Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors! Sign-ups will be open until October 15, 2014 so sign-up now!

If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the four judges.

Cheers from NickGibson3900, Dom497, TheQ Editor and Figureskatingfan.

DRN coordinator[edit]

You're up to take the position in 12 days. Just a reminder. Best regards, TransporterMan (TALK) 19:21, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

On second thought: The DRN coordinator page says, "It will be best if you are active as a volunteer at DRN for at least the month preceding the date on which you are to take over the coordinator position so that you are familiar with the current issues, trends, and pending cases; if you are unable to do that, please consider posting a note to the DRN talk page asking for someone who has been active to take the position in your place." You've not edited Wikipedia at all since September 10. I'm going to take the liberty of moving your volunteer stint from December-January, 2014, to the open February-March, 2015, slot so that you can have the chance to be active at DRN during at least January (and if you don't take it then, I'm going to remove your name from the schedule altogether). If you object to any of this, even in the slightest, just drop a note on my user talk page and I'll gladly give it over to you during December-January without hesitation. Best regards, TransporterMan (TALK) 19:39, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
