Steeplechase 2013[edit]

Hi Hahc- Thanks for giving me the Steeplestarter. I just wanted to follow up on if I would be receiving the two main awards for the Steeplechase 2013. Thanks--Godot13 (talk) 17:32, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Oh, I forgot about those. Yes, I will try to give them down to you this coming week. Cheers. → Call me Hahc21 22:15, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Hubspot[edit]

Hi Hahc21. As my go-to for GA issues, I'm sorry if I am bombarding you. I was wondering if you had time sometime over the next few weeks to take a look at Hubspot. It was declined due to concerns over COI/promo issues and I was told I should let others take over article improvement due to COI issues. In my experience, I am the only experienced editor that takes an interest in marketing topics and it is unlikely anyone else will make quality contributions to it. Additionally, I actually disclosed a former COI from a year ago or so, not a current one. I routinely go back to some of the poor COI edits I made in my early Wikipedia career to bring them more in-line with Wikipedia standards. Anyways, I would like to bring it up to GA still, but no specific content issues were described for me to address... CorporateM (Talk) 23:20, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

GA review[edit]

Hello Hahc21, I noticed that you are listed at the GA Help Desk as a GA mentor who is interested in video game articles and referencing issues. I'm conducting my first GA review, which is of the article PETA satirical browser games, and if you have some time, I was wondering if you could take a quick look at my review at Talk:PETA satirical browser games/GA1. It's a small article and a brief review, but I'm looking for a second opinion on whether a couple of the sources are reliable, and I'd appreciate any feedback of the review generally as well. Thanks! –Prototime (talk · contribs) 03:18, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

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 Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions), 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! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Murder of Jessica Currin -- Requesting copy of deleted article -- Third time (New section)[edit]

More than three weeks ago I asked you if I could have a copy of the article Murder of Jessica Curring which I created, which was deleted. You were the closing administrator of the AfD discussion. You answered that you could indeed provide me with a copy but you have yet to provide me with that copy. Could you tell me what's going on? Thanks.

Contact Basemetal here 23:27, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Um. Did you check your email? I emailed you a copy of the article because I am not willing to recreate it on Wikipedia. → Call me Hahc21 23:43, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Oops. I got it. The message went directly to "Junk" for some reason. Sorry about that.
Why are you "not willing to recreate it on Wikipedia" in my user area? What difference does it make? I told you it was just to have an archive of my work. An emailed copy of a deleted article does not have a history, that is the various versions of the deleted article, which is also data.
Could you email me the various versions of the article? With an email copy of only the last version I have no access to data present only in old versions that were subsequently modified and that can differ significantly.
Also, I read somewhere on WP that the creator of a deleted article can get a copy of that deleted article. I'd like to check the implications of that statement. Could you tell me where on WP that is mentioned? I want to look up exactly what WP means by providing a copy of a deleted article.
Thank you for your help.

Triple Crown[edit]

I'm not exactly sure if I did my nomination for the Triple Crown correctly or not. Was I supposed to nominate it and have the table match with previous winners? GamerPro64 03:12, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

I'll tey to do it this weekend. I promise! → Call me Hahc21 00:20, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Request Edits[edit]

I was wondering if you had a few minutes to spare to review a fairly small Request Edit to incorporate a major profile story in Sports Illustrated regarding a sabermetrics pro. I've been having a hard time finding editors to collaborate on these with so many editors retiring, being banned, or just focusing on more important real-life priorities.

Universal Triple Crown[edit]

I've just discovered a set of 20 images is now featured here, on Commons, and, unexpectedly, on Farsi Wikipedia. Can I request a Universal Triple Crown? And should I check for others first, and get the full list for you? Adam Cuerden (talk) 20:28, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

OMG Adam. 20?! Okay, get the list and I'll make the rest :) → Call me Hahc21 20:29, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Comic Book DB[edit]

Thank you for closing the Comic Book DB AfD. I believe 2 pieces of relevant information were lost before its closing though.

1 That article is linked to by more than 500 articles. 2 It is an approved tertiary source according to Wikipedia:WikiProject Comics/References under "Databases, indices, and other such websites". DunDunDunt (talk) 02:12, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

having a source approved doesn't make it notable. It just means that the community thinks it is reliable enough to be used in articles. Also, the link count is irrelevant too. Both points have zero weight towards notability. → Call me Hahc21 08:21, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
I never said they added weight to notability... Nevertheless, could the article perhaps get Userfied? I'm going to edit it with a few more sources I recently found. DunDunDunt (talk) 09:23, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Your closure of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Giorgi Gvelesiani[edit]

Oh, yes I indeed missed that. Thanks Ymblanter for taking care of it :) → Call me Hahc21 08:19, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

FAC advice[edit]

Hi Hahc,

I see you've gotten yourself some FA's, and was looking to know: About how long on average would you say it takes for successful nominations to be promoted? How long do you recommend working on an article before nomination?? I've only participated in several FAC's so far, and know they can vary, but what would you guess is the average duration? Just curious for when I go for FAC's in the future.

Thanks in advance! SNUGGUMS (talk · contribs) 01:34, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

hey! Well it depends. I usually work on short article about indie games, which means that I can have then finished in a week. If everything goes smooth, your article will be promoted in a month or so. If things get nasty, it can take as much as 3 months. My advice is to take an article through GA first, then ask 2 copyeditors to work on it. After that, read it aloud and if you find the text coherent, clear and precise, then it's ready for its first FAC nomination :) → Call me Hahc21 04:38, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
  • (talk page stalker) Get three or four trustworthy editors who are willing to peer review your articles, and help them by reviewing theirs. Keep the comments critical, but the discussion positive... that helps too. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 05:00, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Thank you both :). I definitely agree with GA first (and I've brought 6 articles to GA, but none to FA yet), and peer review as well. Crisco, I'm not sure if you remember, but Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (an article we both gave input for at a peer review and its FAC) was promoted to FA a week after its nomination. Probably the quickest promotion I've seen. Will definitely read aloud before nomination, Hahc. SNUGGUMS (talk · contribs) 06:52, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Articles I nominate go through PR, usually, and if they'd only get source reviews they'd be finished their run at FAC in a week. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 07:06, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Must be quite an extensive review, sir! I'm hoping I can pull that off someday..... SNUGGUMS (talk · contribs) 07:10, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

So, what's the background there? --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 06:35, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

She was involved in a big drama back in 2006, which ended up at Arbitration. It all had to do (guess) with Giano and some other admins. Let's say she did a number of highly questionable actions, and she then resigned all her bits and left. I don't consider her to be a user in "good standing" with the community, especially since she gave up her permissions under a cloud. → Call me Hahc21 06:42, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
