The Saturdays discography[edit]

heya, thank you for your help with the Lostprophets discography, it passed :) was just wondering, if you had time, if you could take a look at the above article and suggest some improvements for me before i take it to FLR. many thanks :) Mister sparky (talk) 23:27, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/David Bowie discography/archive1[edit]

Hi, thanks for you input at the FLC. I've addressed some of your issues, but have added comments to some. Please let me know if you have any further or ongoing issues. Thanks, JD554 (talk) 18:57, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Bjork![edit]

I think I've addressed most everything in your GA-nom. I've also expanded a bit of the release part to include that Bjork was sued by another musician after the BritAwards. I think it's all grammatically correct, but feel free to give that part a bit of a clean. Is it ready for GA now otherwise? :) Andrzejbanas (talk) 21:37, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

Okay, I think I've fixed the WP:LQ problems now. Andrzejbanas (talk) 01:32, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for taking the time to look over my GA nom! I'll try to do some reviews at the GAN section. Thanks for all your help! Andrzejbanas (talk) 02:33, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

Shipped not sold[edit]

Found a neat link in relation to this query you had regarding whether certifications were based on shipments or sales. Not sure what sort of implementation is required or how deep this impacts articles, guess it needs some investigating. k.i.a.c (talktome - contribs) 08:47, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Ghosts I-IV[edit]

Hope you don't mind if i do a prose review of Ghosts I-IV for the FAC, which may or may not end up in me heavily rewriting some parts of the article. Just fair warning in case you look at the history in the next few days and wonder what the hell I'm up to with all my craaaaaaazy edits. WesleyDodds (talk) 08:39, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

By the way, have you noticed the phenomenon of editors occasionally changing the album order number in individual NIN album pages to include Broken in the total? It's like these people have never heard of an EP . . . WesleyDodds (talk) 08:46, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
Incidentally, that happens to be my favorite NIN release. It's actually one of the records I've listened to most on my iPod (in case you're wondering, that top tier also includes Dookie, Siamese Dream, R.E.M.'s Reckoning, Ride's Nowhere, and two Depeche Mode singles compilations). When you get around to working on that one, give me a holler. WesleyDodds (talk) 08:55, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

File:Wikiscreen2007.jpg listed for deletion[edit]

An image or media file that you uploaded or altered, File:Wikiscreen2007.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you.

Trivium (band)[edit]

Do you think you could take another look at the Trivium article. Most of the problems you mentioned have been fixed. The article now has a musical style section and the grammatical errors have been fixed. Thanks for the suggestions on the article. KezianAvenger 16:41, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Trent Reznor[edit]

I think it would go a long ways towards improving the article by completely reorganizing it. What do you think? WesleyDodds (talk) 07:42, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

I know you're busy these days, but when I'm done rearranging the article I'll need help sourcing. Also will need help integrating Reznor's side projects into the main biography, particularly Tapeworm, which isn't tied to a specific time period. WesleyDodds (talk) 08:25, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

Criterion list[edit]

Hey Drewcifer, I saw your Criterion list in your sandbox and I think it's a great layout. I noticed you have not worked on it in over a month. Would you mind if I contribute to it? Or should I let your sandbox be? Cheers! Andrzejbanas (talk) 19:44, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:33 Ghosts IV.ogg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:33 Ghosts IV.ogg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 01:05, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

GA Sweeps update[edit]

Thanks to everyone's efforts to the GA Sweeps process, we are currently over 90% done with only 226 articles remain to be swept! As always, I want to thank you for using your time to ensure the quality of the older GAs. With over 50 members participating in Sweeps, that averages out to about 4 articles per person! If each member reviews an article once a week this month (or several!), we'll be completely finished. At that point, awards will be handed out to reviewers. As an added incentive, if we complete over 100 articles reviewed this month, I will donate $100 to Wikipedia Forever on behalf of all GA Sweeps participants. I hope that this incentive will help to increase our motivation for completing Sweeps while supporting Wikipedia in the process. If you have any questions about reviews or Sweeps let me know and I'll be happy to get back to you. Again, thank you for taking the time to help with the process, I appreciate your efforts! --Happy editing! Nehrams2020 (talkcontrib) 00:03, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Interpol discography[edit]

Hey Drewcifer, I wanted to wait till after the holiday season to ask you but, just wondering, are you pleased with the work I have made to the above article following your comments? If not, is there anything else i can do? Thanks! (Ps. Well done on your NIN work!) --SteelersFanUK06 ReplyOnMine! 06:40, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

I left some replies over on mine, just to keep things tidy. Come take a look if you have a minute. Thanks again, SteelersFanUK06 ReplyOnMine! 07:31, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
I've copied what you said to the review, so that everyone can join in if they wish (Hope that's cool with you!). If there are any other concerns, do let me know. My finest regards, SteelersFanUK06 ReplyOnMine! 08:08, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Criterion[edit]

Uh-oh indeed! I'll keep on eye on this page. Great job with the formatting! I think we may get a bit poked with some style issues with it, but we'll just have to wait and see on that front. I'll watch the page, and try to clean anything up. You did a lot of great work on it. Keep it up! Andrzejbanas (talk) 14:08, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

The Prodigy discography[edit]

Hello Drewcifer3000, i see that you did a serious amount of work to The Prodigy discography, so i'm posing this question to you. As it is a featured list some things are wrong with it which shouldn't. It's quite outdated, the template doesn't match at all with the article for example. I don't know if you have the knowledge to get this article more up to date? greets --Narayan (talk) 19:26, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi Drewcifer, this list has now been listed at FLRC (link). Dabomb87 (talk) 20:56, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Criterion LaserDiscs[edit]

Hey Drewcifer, I found out how to solve our problem with the LaserDiscs. I couldn't complete them all, but you have to use template:numkey. It's not to difficult to understand. I added some, but got sidetracked when it was time to get to work. I can finish them later, or I can let you take a stab at it. What do you think? Andrzejbanas (talk) 15:50, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Interpol discography[edit]

Since you are a FL conisseur (sp?), I was just wondering, can you give me some more help with the above article? Some opposition has appeared over sources, and I'm not too sure where to go with it - you must have seen hundreds of these go through the gate, what happened in the past in terms of Chart sources? --SteelersFanUK06 HereWeGo2010! 10:48, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Pussycat Dolls discography[edit]

heya, a lil while ago you made comments at the above's FLC discussion, however it was not promoted due to a general lack of interest. so was wondering if you could revisit and add any comments here? thanks :) Mister sparky (talk) 21:59, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

The Prodigy discography FLRC[edit]

I have nominated The Prodigy discography for featured list removal here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets the featured list criteria.

Hi Drewcifer, can you update your progress on the article at Wikipedia:Featured list removal candidates/The Prodigy discography/archive1 so that we know what has been and what still needs to be addressed? Thanks, Dabomb87 (talk) 05:34, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Hey there (sorry for bothering you so much). Can you take one more look at the list; there's a table formatting problem that needs to be resolved. Cheers, Dabomb87 (talk) 04:07, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Last bump, I promise: it looks like you've been extremely busy, so I understand if you can't attend to the FLRC. However, in addition to the table issue, there is now a source reliability issus that has popped up, so if you could take a look ASAP, that would be great. Cheers, Dabomb87 (talk) 03:44, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Heads up[edit]

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/February 6, 2010. Cheers, Dabomb87 (talk) 03:58, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

I dropped by to say Thanks for your work on this article. I've been pretty unimpressed with most of Mr. Reznor's work after Downward Spiral, and I never really tuned into anything he's released recently. But after reading the article you worked so hard on, I figured I'd give this one a listen — and I'm very glad I did! I went over and bought the set.. Cheers!

February GA Sweeps update[edit]

Progress as of January 2010

Thanks to everyone's efforts to the GA Sweeps process, we are currently over 95% done with around 130 articles left to be swept! Currently there are over 50 members participating in Sweeps, that averages out to about 3 articles per person! If each member reviews an article once a week this month (or several!), we'll be completely finished. At that point, awards will be handed out to reviewers. Per my message last month, although we did not review 100 articles last month, I still made a donation of $90 (we had 90 reviews completed/initiated) to Wikipedia Forever on behalf of all GA Sweeps reviewers. I would like to thank everyone's efforts for last month, and ask for additional effort this month so we can be finished. I know you have to be sick of seeing these updates (as well as Sweeps itself) by now, so please do consider reviewing a few articles if you haven't reviewed in a while. If you have any questions about reviews or Sweeps let me know and I'll be happy to get back to you. Again, thank you for taking the time to help with the process, I appreciate your efforts! --Happy editing! Nehrams2020 (talkcontrib) 02:30, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/Vladimir Horowitz discography/archive1[edit]

Hi. You recently made some comments on this FL nomination and since then, most of the matters have been sorted, would you mind taking another look? Thanks - Etincelles (talk) 23:08, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

I have made a few improvements now, the references are now all to reliable sources and I fixed the table widths. Etincelles (talk) 11:42, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

The Make-Up[edit]

The article The Make-Up, to which you seem to be among the main contributors, is undergoing a review as part of the good article sweeps project. The article does not seem to meet current requirements for a good article. It has been put on hold for a week; if these issues are addressed satisfactorily within that period the article will be kept as a GA, otherwise it will be delisted. Lampman (talk) 17:22, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

GA Sweeps Completed![edit]

Thanks to everyone's amazing efforts in February, we have reviewed all of the articles and are now finished with Sweeps! There are still about 30 articles currently on hold, and once those reviews are completed, I will send you a final message about Sweeps process stats including the total number of articles that were passed and failed. If you have one of these open reviews, be sure to update your count when the review is completed so I can compile the stats. You can except to receive your award for reviewing within the next week or two. Although the majority of the editors did not start Sweeps at the beginning in August 2007 (myself included), over 50 editors have all come together to complete a monumental task and improve many articles in the process. I commend you for sticking with this often challenging task and strengthening the integrity of the GA WikiProject as well as the GAs themselves. I invite you to take a break from reviewing (don't want you to burn out!) and then consider returning/starting to review GANs and/or contribute to GAR reviews. With your assistance, we can help bring the backlog down to a manageable level and help inspire more editors to improve articles to higher classes and consider reviewing themselves. Again, thank you for putting up with difficult reviews, unhappy editors, numerous spam messages from me, and taking the time to help with the process, I appreciate your efforts! --Happy editing! Nehrams2020 (talkcontrib) 02:23, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Criterion[edit]

So it seems we couldn't make it an FA. They said we could re-nominate again in a few days, what do you think? Should we give this another push? Andrzejbanas (talk) 18:31, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Karanacs (talk) 17:37, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

WikiProject Good articles (Participant Clean-Up)[edit]

Hello, you are receiving this message because you are currently a participant of WikiProject Good articles. Since the creation of the WikiProject, over 200 user's have joined to help review good article nominations and contribute to other sections of the WikiProject. Over the years, several of these users have stopped reviewing articles and/or have become inactive with the project but are still listed as participates. In order to improve communications with other participants and get newsletters sent out faster (newsletters will begin to be sent out monthly starting in October) all participants that are no longer active with the WikiProject will be removed from the participants list.

Update for: WikiProject Good articles (Participant Clean-Up)[edit]

Sorry for having to send out a second message but a user has brought to my attention that a point mentioned in the first message should be clarified. If user's don't sign on this page, they will be moved to an "Inactive Participants" list rather then be being removed from the entire WikiProject. Sorry for any confusion.--Dom497 (talk)15:15, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Andrea Fraser.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Andrea Fraser.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. VernoWhitney (talk) 05:34, 24 September 2012 (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)

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) 03:14, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

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!

Orphaned non-free image File:Anti-Spawn.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Anti-Spawn.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 12:23, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

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.
