GA Cup[edit]

@Figureskatingfan, TheQ Editor, NickGibson3900: A user just left some feedback on the GA Cup talk page. One of his comments was about writing nominations. I'm surprised no one ever brought this up and I never thought about until now. My question: Should articles that a participant writes and gets promoted to GA be included in the competition (in terms of being able to get points for writing GA's)? I'd say no just to keep things simple for the first year. What are your thoughts?--Dom497 (talk) 19:53, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

EDIT: Actually, now that I'm thinking about it, maybe we should...but that would increase OUR workload given that we would have to make sure two people aren't working together (one writes the article, other reviews it...already planning on passing it as his article will be passed by the other person). But then I guess that's where "reviewing every review" comes in play as we would be checking anyways.--Dom497 (talk) 19:55, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

@Figureskatingfan, TheQ Editor, NickGibson3900: Echo didn't trigger.--Dom497 (talk) 11:36, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Remember, one of the purposes of the GA Cup is to decrease the backlog at GAN. This is a competition about reviews, not about creating and improving articles. Although ultimately, if we're successful, that would be the secondary benefit. That being said, I see no problem if a participant has a GA in the queue, and it gets reviewed by another participant. The participant with the GA wouldn't get any points, though. I think it should be against rules to earn points for reviews a participant has co-written; this point should be added to the rules, which I'll try and get to this afternoon.

I'm fine with it, but I think we should see how it goes first. It's still the first year, and if it's successful, we could add it in the next year. But remember, the GA cup started was because the need to reduce the backlog (mostly of the older nominations).  ΤheQ Editor  Talk? 17:30, 11 September 2014 (UTC) no writing. I was hoping you would all say that!--Dom497 (talk) 19:01, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Just for the record, I agree that there is no writing points for the first Ga cup NickGibson3900 Talk 22:04, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Dude, you so deserve to find yourself the scariest roller coaster you can find and go scream your head off! This wikilove is in honor of your hard work in getting the GA Cup set up. I know it was my idea, but it would've been an epic fail without you. Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 16:01, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks and no problem!--Dom497 (talk) 18:50, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

AFC Cup[edit]

Hey Dom, I proposed an "AFC Cup" to the AFC community [here]. Is it okay with you? Brandon (MrWooHoo)Talk to Brandon! 22:32, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

@MrWooHoo: Well, I don't have anything to do with AFC so I can't influence your decision. But I will say that proposing the AFC Cup won't make matters any better for the GA Cup. I wouldn't be surprised if some negatives (that will probably affect the GA Cup) come out of the AFC proposal. But then again, I have no idea what the people are like over at AFC so they may think it is the best idea in the world.--Dom497 (talk) 22:36, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the quick reply. Thanks for the note. I'll see ya on October 1st ;) Brandon (MrWooHoo)Talk to Brandon! 22:38, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
