FLC archiving[edit]

Hi Giants, a list that you closed as promoted, Madonna filmography, has yet to be updated and listed in its article history. I'm not sure how long does the wiki robot takes time, but just asking whether the robot is working on it? —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 09:32, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Giants, I do not think that Legobot has undertaken the task for updating the article history of the FAC and FLCs. We do have a number of pending nominations for this. I would really really love to help, but I won't until the delegates say so and I have a clear understanding of what all needs to be done after the {{article history}} update. —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 11:21, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Gubby Allen...[edit] now at FAC here. Any further comments gratefully received. Sarastro1 (talk) 19:23, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

List of national anthems[edit]

Hi Giants2008, I see that List of national anthems is scheduled to appear on Wikipedia's Main Page as Today's featured list on June 6, 2014. The list does not meet Wikipedia's Featured list criteria, in respect of comprehensiveness, as it does not include all verifiable national anthems; namely Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau, the national anthem of Wales. I am considering nominating it as a candidate for removal from Featured Lists. As such, it would be inappropriate to feature on the Main Page until it has been reviewed. I would be interested to hear your thoughts. Best,

As has been explained to you, then Welsh anthem appears in the List of anthems of non-sovereign countries, regions and territories, which is where it rightly belongs. Perhaps you could go to the talk page and discuss why you are unwilling to alter the first line of the List of national anthems to "nation state", which would clear up any misunderstanding? - SchroCat (talk) 11:04, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
No offence, but if I had wanted to talk to you (SchroCat), I would have posted at your talkpage. It is perfectly clear why the first line should remain unchanged. If List of national anthems is a list of national anthems, as it purports to be, it should include all verifiable national anthems. If it is a List of nation-state anthems, that should be the list's title. Otherwise, it is misleading. Daicaregos (talk) 11:26, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
Try discussing it at the article talk page, rather than spraying the question round the talk pages of others. If you don't return to the article to discuss the use of the correct term "Nation state" against the misleading "nation", I will take this as your tacit acceptance to the change. As to the title, try looking at Wikipedia:COMMONNAME, which outlines why common terms (such as "national anthem" are used. We, an an encyclopaedia, stick to the common terms, but can then use the text in the article to confirm what we are showing: in this case the namthems of the nation state, not just those that also appear in the List of anthems of non-sovereign countries, regions and territories. - SchroCat (talk) 11:31, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
Daicaregos, SchroCat is right in saying that this is an issue that should be discussed on the article's talk page, not here. I see that a similar complaint has now been posted there, so I'll monitor the developments as the discussion continues. If there is a consensus that the list is troublesome in its current form, it can be pulled, although I don't see one so far. I do hope that the list isn't nominated at FLRC if most other commenters agree with the exclusion of the list in question, as that would be a waste of time for all involved, including myself.

List of FIFA World Cup finals[edit]

Hi Giants,

Thank you for your kind request! I agree that it would be good to have a List of FIFA World Cup finals blurb up on the main page to correspond with this year's finals. I have written the blurb and hope that it meets with your approval.

Walt Nielsen has been nominated for Did You Know[edit]


I'll do what I can. If you do me a favour, and list them at least a couple of weeks in advance, I'll promise to make sure the blurbs and lists are reasonably up to scratch. The Rambling Man (talk) 19:13, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Sounds great. There are currently blurbs scheduled through July 14, and I plan on readying one for July 18 today. If you want to look at the blurbs that are about to run, they are here and here. I'll keep the blurbs coming on a regular basis; in the past I've done two per week as TFL requires. Giants2008 (Talk) 19:20, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
I will do. I'm sorry for leaving the project in the lurch. I couldn't commit to the time, just in case, with the arrival of The Rambling Kid, but now we're a few months down the road, things are becoming a bit more organised so I can dedicate some time back on the ranch...

WikiCup 2014 June newsletter[edit]

After an extremely close race, Round 3 is over. 244 points secured a place in Round 4, which is comparable to previous years- 321 was required in 2013, while 243 points were needed in 2012. Pool C's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Scotland Casliber (submissions) finished second overall, claiming three featured articles, including the high-importance Grus (constellation). Third place was Pool B's , whose contributions included featured articles Russian battleship Poltava (1894) and Russian battleship Peresvet. Pool C saw the highest number of participants advance, with six out of eight making it to the next round.

The round saw this year's first featured portal, with Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to Florida 12george1 (submissions) and the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This means that all content types have been claimed this year. Other contributions of note this round include a featured topic on Maya Angelou's autobiographies from Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions).

The judges would like to remind participants to update submission pages promptly. This means that content can be checked, and allows those following the competition (including those participating) to keep track of scores effectively. This round has seen discussion about various aspects of the WikiCup's rules and procedures. Those interested in the competition can be assured that formal discussions about how next year's competition will work will be opened shortly, and all are welcome to voice their views then. 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!
