VisualEditor newsletter for Janaury 2014

Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor team has worked mostly minor features and fixing bugs. A few significant bugs include working around a bug in CSSJanus that was wrongly flipping images used in some templates in right-to-left (RTL) environments (bug 50910) a major bug that meant inserting any template or other transclusion failed (bug 59002), a major but quickly resolved problem due to an unannounced change in MediaWiki core, which caused VisualEditor to crash on trying to save (bug 59867). This last bugs did not appear on any Wikipedia. Additionally, significant work has been done in the background to make VisualEditor work as an independent editing system.

As of today, VisualEditor is now available as an opt-out feature to all users at 149 active Wikipedias.

  • The character inserter tool in the "Insert" menu has a very basic set of characters. The character inserter is especially important for languages that use Latin and Cyrillic alphabets with unusual characters or frequent diacritics. Your feedback on the character inserter is requested. In addition to feedback from any interested editor, the developers would particularly like to hear from anyone who speaks any of the 50+ languages listed under Phase 5 at mw:VisualEditor/Rollouts, including Breton, Mongolian, Icelandic, Welsh, Afrikaans, Macedonian, and Azerbaijani.
  • meta:Office hours on IRC have been heavily attended recently. The next one will be held this coming Wednesday, 22 January at 23:00 UTC.
  • You can now edit some of the page settings in the "options" dialog – __NOTOC__ and __FORCETOC__ as selection (forced on, forced off, or default setting; bugs 56866 and 56867) and __NOEDITSECTION__ as a checkbox (bug 57166).
  • The automated browser tests were adjusted to speed them up and bind more correctly to list items in lists, and updated to a newer version of their ruby dependencies. You can monitor the automated browser tests' results (triggered every twelve hours) live on the server.
  • Wikipedia:VisualEditor/User guide was updated recently to show some new and upcoming features.

Looking ahead: The character formatting menu on the toolbar will get a drop-down indicator next Thursday. The reference and media items will be the first two listed in the Insert menu. The help menu will get a page listing the keyboard shortcuts. Looking further out, image handling will be improved, including support for alignment (left, right, and center) and better control over image size (including default and upright sizes). The developers are also working on support for editing redirects and image galleries.

Subscriptions to this newsletter are managed at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Newsletter. Please add or remove your name to change your subscription settings. If you have questions or suggestions for future improvements, or if you encounter problems, please let everyone know by posting a note at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you!

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Sujith nalini chellappan may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:

Apostolic Pastoral Congress

Hello Faizan. Thank you for your 'orphan' notice on my 'Apostolic Pastoral Congress' page. I have now created a link from the 'Churches Together in England' wikipage. For this reason, I have taken the liberty of removing your 'orphan' notice. I hope this was the correct thing for me to do!! If not, then I do apologize to you. Do feel free to reinstate the notice. As soon as time permits, I shall be creating a wikipage on APC's presiding prelate Archbishop Agama, and I shall then cross-link both ways, from Dr Agama's wikipage to the APC wikipage and vice versa. If I am doing these things wrong, do please tell me. On further thought, I could also create a link from 'J Delano Ellis' and from the 'Pentecostal Churches of Christ' in the USA, and I'll do just that now. Bye for now. Diakonias (talk) 20:43, 30 January 2014 (UTC).

Hello Diakonias and a warm welcome to you! You have obviously got the "liberty" to remove that tag, you do not need my permission. And you need not to apologize to me; because I don't own Wikipedia. The article Apostolic Pastoral Congress is no more an orphan and you did absolutely right in removing the tag. Thanks, and Welcome to Wikipedia~! Faizan 08:04, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Thank you Faizan. And, thank you too for your warm welcome. I am fairly inexperienced at editing on Wikipedia, whereas you are clearly an experienced editor. So, for that reason I thought it appropriate to be rather deferential in my comments. Thank you for reviewing my page. I guess this means it has passed its first hurdle without need for major review having been identified. Take care. God bless. Diakonias (talk) 18:09, 31 January 2014 (UTC).

WikiCup 2014 January newsletter

The 2014 WikiCup is off to a flying start, with, at time of writing, 138 participants. The is the largest number of participants we have seen since 2010. If you are yet to join the competition, don't worry- the judges have agreed to keep the signups open for a few more days. By a wide margin, our current leader is newcomer Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), whose set of 14 featured pictures, the first FPs of the competition, was worth 490 points. Here are some more noteworthy scorers:

Featured articles, featured lists, featured topics and featured portals are yet to play a part in the competition. The judges have removed a number of submissions which were deemed ineligible. Typically, we aim to see work on a project, followed by a nomination, followed by promotion, this year. We apologise for any disappointment caused by our strict enforcement this year; we're aiming to keep the competition as fair as possible.

Wikipedians interested in friendly competition may be interested to take part in The Core Contest; unlike the WikiCup, The Core Contest is not about audited content, but, like the WikiCup, it is about article improvement; specifically, The Core Contest is about contribution to some of Wikipedia's most important article. Of course, any work done for The Core Contest, if it leads to a DYK, GA or FA, can earn WikiCup points.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! 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 or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Hi. Could you revert User:Ersroitasent's recent edit on Yom Kippur War? He broke the 1RR and keeps refering to the talk page, although he don't seem interested in actually talking. --Mikrobølgeovn (talk) 19:24, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi Mikrobølgeovn. I am keeping a watch at the article. User:Ersroitasent was blocked three days back for violating 1RR, and he has done it again, I have taken the matter to WP:AN3. Faizan 02:49, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Error

The Mighty Don't Kneel - my reversion is correct. Ribbon is refusing to provide valid sources, in effect trying to claim fly by nighters as full members of the group. It's like claiming Stephanie McMahon was a member of DX. 203.17.215.26 (talk) 03:29, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

  • If I may interject here, according to WP:LEAD the lead should not contain refs and the material should be in the body (citing proper sources) and a summary should be included in the lead. I notified you about it before the review commenced so that you could get some time over-hand to solve it. Thanks. smile Soham 17:02, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
But according to WP:LEADCITE, citing the sources in the lead is not prohibited. It is not compulsory that the lead should not contain the references. Faizan 08:28, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Please be careful when making high-speed changes with AWB. In 1954 Birthday Honours you changed "Intin" to "Intinct", evidently without looking at it. In fact "Intin" was correct – it was the person's name. This was one of five pages that you changed in the same minute! Slow down a little and look at what you're "fixing". Thanks! Stanning (talk) 11:18, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

AWB detected it as a spelling mistake, besides I noticed that there were many other fixes which AWB did. Thanks for reporting this false-positive. Faizan 12:05, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

ThankS

Thanks for cleanups on Saoirse Abu and Milligram. I have a dodgy "s" key on my ancient laptop, which does lead to rather a lot of typos. Tigerboy1966  12:45, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

thanks so much from Mike — Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.147.212.61 (talk) 11:51, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

What do you want to be checked? The formatting, or the templates or their accessibility or what? In general there is no error in the refs, however I am applying general fixes. Faizan 13:50, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your help so much Please could you check the ref (new) for Neville Chamberlain page and also the Joseph Chamberlain page Thanks so much again Mike— Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.181.239.141 (talkcontribs)

The article Neville Chamberlain is a featured article. No changes necessary in both of them. Faizan 13:12, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
sorry Faizan, Could you please fix up reference number 2 on the Joseph Chamberlain page - the word chamberlain should have a capital "C". THanks so much, mike — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.181.239.141 (talk) 00:34, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
You rightly did it here. Faizan 13:43, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

For your contributions to bring Agnosticism (estimated annual readership: 1,845,012) to Good Article status, I hereby present you the Million Award. Congratulations on this rare accomplishment, and thanks for all you do for Wikipedia's readers! -- Bobnorwal (talk) 15:39, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

I'd like to congratulate you, but I'm really not sure if I believe in congratulations. (Bad joke. I'm so sorry. So sorry. :P) Still, good job! Bobnorwal (talk) 15:39, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

I am thankful to you. Faizan 15:42, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

DYK

Faizan, you pulled one of your own hooks from a DYK prep area today. Please do not ever do that again. The way to handle any problems with one of your promoted nominations is to go to WT:DYK and ask for it to be fixed. This includes "wrong" hook selection, edits—any changes at all. Thank you. BlueMoonset (talk) 17:21, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Yeah I admit my mistake. I will refer it to WT:DYK next time. Faizan 04:30, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Dear Faizan Could you please try to get rid of the "inline" problems on the Joseph Chamberlain page - I am afriad I cannot! are the refs oK? Also - could you please check the references for the ARNOLD LUPTON page Thanks again mike — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.181.239.141 (talk) 21:32, 15 February 2014 (UTC) Check refs please for arnold lupotn page and Joseph Chamberlaine page eg - "Inline" problems THanks mike — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.181.239.141 (talk) 04:49, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Reviewed tags on Joseph Chamberlain. Joseph Chamberlain needs more references, most of the sections are not referenced. In Arnold Lupton, the references are OK except the ref1. The concerned reference is derived from Template:Rayment-hc, which I cannot sort out. Faizan 05:03, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

VisualEditor Newsletter—February 2014

Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor team has worked on some small changes to the user interface, such as moving the reference item to the top of the Insert menu, as well as some minor features and fixing bugs, especially for rich copying and pasting of references.

The biggest change was the addition of more features to the image dialog, including the ability to set alignment (left, right, center), framing options (thumbnail, frame, frameless, and none), adding alt text, and defining the size manually. There is still some work to be done here, including a quick way to set the default size.

Looking ahead: The link tool will tell you when you're linking to a disambiguation or redirect page. The warning about wikitext will hide itself after you remove the wikitext markup in that paragraph. Support for creating and editing redirects is in the pipeline. Looking further out, image handling will be improved, including default and upright sizes. The developers are also working on support for viewing and editing hidden HTML comments, some behavioral magic words like DISPLAYTITLE, and in-line language setting (dir="rtl").

If you have questions or suggestions for future improvements, or if you encounter problems, please let everyone know by posting a note at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you! Whatamidoing (WMF) 04:21, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Are you sure?

I undid This edit. please see the discussion in wp:LRQ (circa end of September 2013), and mw:Manual:PAGENAMEE_encoding#PAGENAME. peace - קיפודנחש (aka kipod) (talk) 15:53, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

As far as assurance is concerned, I am sure that occurence is not the correct word; occurrence is. But the grammatically erroneous occurence is used both here and in MediaWiki and in the talk page threads. Faizan 16:09, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
my question was not about the misspelling - your edit actually changed the code also. you are more than welcome to correct the spelling, but please try not to botch the code... peace - קיפודנחש (aka kipod) (talk) 17:33, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
just noticed this was done through AWB... you probably didn't even notice that the edit modified the code. i guess the lesson here is: please do not edit pages in Module namespace using AWB... peace - קיפודנחש (aka kipod) (talk) 17:58, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
@קיפודנחש Yes, the edit was done by AWB, anyway the solution is fine. I will simply filter the module space next time using AWB to avoid false-positives. Faizan 13:22, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

orphan edit to Squitter

Hello, I just noticed an edit by you using AWB. to the Squitter page-it states that there are no links to it.. I think this is wrong as DME, TACAN, Secondary radar and Mode S all link to it-is this wrong? Just wondering if the edits you made are correct, kind regards--Read-write-services (talk) 00:56, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Yes, that article is an orphan, which means that there are no articles that link to it as of February 20. The links that you have cited are contained in the article and they have nothing to do with the articles that link to Squitter. Please see WP:DO for more. Faizan 13:30, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
Hey Faizan, at least Virtual Reality links to this page, so its no orphan as far as I can tell. Best Regards Oliver — Preceding unsigned comment added by Omsgomsg (talkcontribs) 11:17, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
Hey, Distance measuring equipment links to it now, so the orphan tag ought to be removed. Regards. Faizan 13:15, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

March 2014 GAN Backlog Drive

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!

Tottenham Bluegrass Festival

Hello, Faizan. Please check this article again and see if the tag can be removed. —Anne Delong (talk) 17:03, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

Hello Anne. An underlinked article is the one, which needs additional internal links to other Wikipedia articles. You did nice improvements here, so the tag ought to be removed. Best regards. Faizan 13:14, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
