Happy new year![edit]

Firework photomontage.jpg Happy new year!
May 2013 bring lots of happiness and perhaps a change for the better here on Wikipedia.
Good luck at the WikiCup and more! —WP:PENGUIN · [ TALK ] 03:14, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

File-moving[edit]

Hi I noticed you have rejected many of my file rename requests providing a rationale Reason for moving the file not covered by WP:FMV/W All reasons need not be covered in the article.Please see [1] and [2] in which the rename was done even without a valid rationale as you claim.As far as my knowledge goes, renames are done for ease of use and identification.Please self-revert or move the pages yourself.It makes no sense to reject rename requests just because you find the rationale a bit out of the WP:FMV/W.Thanks and a happy new year TheStrikeΣagle 07:17, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
Some other links in case you want to oppose my view: 1, 2, 3. TheStrikeΣagle 07:17, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Hey! Happy new year! I hope you're having a great time with your family :) I'm sorry but I'd have to decline your request. Files are moved only if it's necessary, not for ease of use and identification. If there is no reason to move a file covered in WP:FMV/W, then the file shouldn't be moved. If other users move the file without taking into consideration what the policy say, that's their behaviour, but I won't. I'd really like to perform them, but I consider that moving File:Extra+Virginity.jpg to File:Extra Virginity.jpg is not necessary because it falls under what the policy explicitly says we shouldn't do: "it's best to leave all files with generally valid names at their locations, even if slightly better names may exist." I know that we have to make exemptions, and I was tempted to move File:YouNeedMe.jpg to its new location, but I hesitated about it because I didn't find it worthy (the image is non-free and its used in one article). I'd be glad to expand further about this, if you wish; and I apologize that I can't be of any help. — ΛΧΣ21 07:32, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

2013 Wiki Cup[edit]

Hi again. It's Wiki Cup time and I've signed up, but the thing is, I'm sort of confused about what everything in my submissions mean. I know a few, but not all. Also, I'm wondering is it that if you've worked on an article significantly, or if you nominated it that it counts as a FA, GA, etc, or not. Thanks for your time, but if you don't know, just tell me, thanks again! --Lucky102 (talk) 12:53, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Hey! Lets start with the meanings I guess: FA (featured article), GA (good article), FL (featured list), FP (featured picture), FPO (featured portal), FT (featured topic), GT (good topic), DYK (did you know), ITN (in the news) and GAR (good article review). Everything you submit has to be significantly worked by you in this year (2013) and nominated (or co-nominated) by you in 2013, and between each submission period. The points are given after the article reaches the status (or in the case of GA reviews, after you close the review). Don't worry too much about it :) I can help you at any moment as well as the judges :) — ΛΧΣ21 16:42, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
So, if it does appear on the main page, it doesn't count?--Lucky102 (talk) 21:34, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
Good question, and one I can answer without giving you some sort of lie (I have no idea). The best I can do is to ask J Milburn. He, as the director of the WikiCup, is able to answer that question to you. Regards. — ΛΧΣ21 21:37, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

Welcome to the 2013 WikiCup[edit]

Hello, Hahc21, and welcome to the 2013 WikiCup! Your submissions' page is here. The first round will last until the end of February, at which point the top 64 scorers will advance to the second round. We will be in touch at the end of every month, and signups are going to remain open until the end of January; if you know of anyone else who may like to take part, please let them know! A few reminders:

  • The rules can be found here. There have been a few changes from last year, which are listed on that page.
  • Anything you submit must have been nominated and promoted in 2013, and you need to have completed significant work upon it in 2013. (The articles you review at good article reviews does not need to have been nominated in 2013, but you do need to have started and completed the review in 2013.) We will be checking.
  • If you feel that another competitor is breaking the rules or abusing the competition in some way, please let a judge know. Please do not remove entries from the submissions' pages of others yourself.
  • Don't worry about calculating precisely how many points everything is worth. The bot will do that. The bot may occasionally get something wrong- let a judge know, or post on the WikiCup talk page if that happens.
  • Please try to be prompt in updating submissions' pages so that they can be double-checked.

Overall, however, don't worry, and have fun. It doesn't matter if you make the odd mistake; these things happen. Questions can be asked on the WikiCup talk page. Good luck! J Milburn and The ed17 13:03, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Colors[edit]

Hi, Happy New Year....well I'm not understanding your point over colours. Pls, correct it if you know. Thank you...—PKS:1142 · (TALK) 17:21, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Oh, well. What I meant is that colos + text inside the box are enough to meet WP:ACCESS. There is no need of a symbol. Also, why did you expand the lead? Remember to keep it pretty short or you will face users opposing your FLC... — ΛΧΣ21 17:23, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
And happy new year! :) — ΛΧΣ21 17:24, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
I know but that user started objection over that earlier part also. I thought let show him the earlier version which didn't had any issues. If I get more opposes on this lead then I would use your lead. But, for now lets hope it works. —PKS:1142 · (TALK) 17:30, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for that comment. I think it has been resolved. Thanks once again.—PKS:1142 · (TALK) 17:59, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Reliable Sources[edit]

Hello Hahc21, I see that you are a member of Wikiproject Venezuela and I had some questions about sources. I posted this on the Reliable Sources Noticeboard and I haven't gotten any responses. Can you help? Justiciero1811 (talk) 23:48, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Oh. Yes, yes. I'll take a look today. Thanks for the notice :) — ΛΧΣ21 00:13, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
Okay. When talking about news from Venezuela, the most reliable sources are well-established newspaper and several websites. As far as I can see, El Universal is the one to trust and follow. It is a very well establshed newspaper (I buy it every week or so although it is daily) and it rarely publishes false information. Press releases are to be treated with extra care if they come from the Venezuelan government, which has been the subject of many controversies regarding the veracity of information published by them (take the current health of Hugo Chavez as an example). My guess is to always try to find information from the most reliable sources, and those with no relationship with the government (if possible). Anyways, you can ask me whenever you need help with those. Regards. — ΛΧΣ21 00:23, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the info! Would it be ok with you if I copied and pasted what you wrote above onto the RSN page? I want to make it easier for other people to find. Justiciero1811 (talk) 21:41, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
No problem :) You can copy-paste my comment there. Regards. — ΛΧΣ21 21:50, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

To update what? Article History? I have already changed the template :) — ΛΧΣ21 06:04, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
So it puts the Afd and GAN under the 'Article history' template. Till 06:07, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Automatic archive[edit]

You know you can have a bot automatically set up an archive for you right. :P Erick (talk) 06:41, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Indeed. But I enjoy doing it manually. The bot won't have the same order and perfection I have when archiving my talk page :P — ΛΧΣ21 06:42, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Oh, lol. Well, um, that's that I guess. LOL. Discussion now archived. Erick (talk) 06:44, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── (raises wine bottle) Here's another year. It's funny how one little thing can make all the difference. I saw the potential on you when I saw your work Independiente, and that's how it got all started. I really we can got more members. Erick (talk) 06:50, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Yeah (drinks a bit of wine). I didn't know, at that time, that I was about to accomplish so much here. If you'd never pinged my talk page back in March, maybe I'd not be here, talking to you. Even when I technically started working here in September 2011 (when I got the strength enough to start Ricardo Arjona discography, which suddently became my first FL), I really got into this thing of being a Wikipedian in March, and all because of your guidance and help :') — ΛΧΣ21 06:54, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Mmm yeah. I believe in potential and I know a good editor when I see one. That's how I got you and DivaKnockouts really good. Now for some bad news, I may not have Internet access due to financial issues in my house for a while. We'll see what happens tomorrow. Erick (talk) 07:05, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

GA Newsletter[edit]

Just as an fyi, no I didn't stop the bot, something is wrong with it....again. I'm just going to send it through the other bot now.--Dom497 (talk) 14:07, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

You think this is too girly for the feb newsletter?--Dom497 (talk) 17:52, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Aw, its cute, although for sexuality reasons, I'd avoid using different colours for the ribbons. I'd chose a single neutral color for both, but that's just me thinking too much :) — ΛΧΣ21 17:54, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
What colour do you think? I don't think the regular green would do :p .--Dom497 (talk) 17:56, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
I had grey in mind, but its too masculine and opaque; women will rage about it. I also don't think that the regular green will be enough... Hmmm what about red? or orange? or red and orange? (ugh weird). Hmmm or green and yellow, like Google Chrome's logo. — ΛΧΣ21 17:59, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
I'll see how they look and pick one. :)--Dom497 (talk) 18:01, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

The WikiProject: Good Articles Newsletter (January 2013)[edit]

In This Issue



This newsletter was delivered by EdwardsBot (talk) 14:44, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Happy New Year![edit]

The Winter Walk at Anglesey Abbey - geograph.org.uk - 862583.jpg Best wishes for the New Year!
Wishing you and yours a joyous, healthful, and productive 2013!

Please accept a belated thank you for the well wishes upon my retirement as FAC delegate this year, and apologies for the false alarm of my first—and hopefully last—retirement; the well wishes extended me were most kind, but I decided to return, re-committed, when another blocked sock was revealed as one of the factors aggravating the FA pages this year.

Maintaining standards in featured content requires vigilance, dedication and knowledge of people like you, who are needed; reviews are always welcome at FAC, FAR and TFA requests. Somehow, somehow we never ever seem to do nothin' completely nice and easy, but here's hoping that 2013 will see a peaceful road ahead and a return to the quality and comaraderie that defines the FA process, with the help of many dedicated Wikipedians!

MatthewTownsend[edit]

Why was MT mentioned in a project newsletter!? That was a horrible idea, per WP:DENY. --Rschen7754 21:03, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

o.0 Damn. Well, we can remove it if necessary... — ΛΧΣ21 21:48, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
Well, I see that you have removed it. Problem solved, I guess. — ΛΧΣ21 21:49, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. Generally we don't mention stuff like that in project newsletters, because either it will a) be downright embarrassing or b) will encourage them to get more recognition and keep disrupting the site. --Rschen7754 21:53, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
Oh, well. I guess we learn new things every day. I did it because she was part of the project as an active reviewer and I thought it deserved a mention; bad idea, though. Thanks for the notice, Rschen. — ΛΧΣ21 21:57, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
You're welcome, and I apologize for getting a bit upset. --Rschen7754 21:59, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
Don't worry :) — ΛΧΣ21 21:59, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
I liked the newsletter better when "Two crucial users leave the project" was true. Recognition of quality contributions and reviews seems not such a terrible idea to me. (But now, of course, I have no history with Mattisse, knowing her only from User:Philcha, "I can't write this without becoming overwhelmed with a painful sorrow. He was so upbeat and special and above all, kind. He had just written me that he had already lived two years beyond the one year he was given after diagnosis, but his deterioration was evident. He never complained.") --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:47, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Mentorship[edit]

Hi,

I have been a Wikipedia editor for quite a while, however I took a 2 year break and want to get into the swing of things again. As of right now, I still run my bot, fix vandalism, and do some tasks around CFD. The areas that I am lacking skill in is content creation as well as deletion discussions/CSD. I was wondering if you wanted to mentor me in these areas? CrimsonBlue (talk) 01:12, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Oh. Yes, of course. It'll be a pleasure to help you in anything you need. We can start whenever you want. — ΛΧΣ21 01:17, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
Ready whenever you are! CrimsonBlue (talk) 01:23, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
Okay, I think of some questions I'd have to do to know where to start: Have you ever written an article? Which is your best content contribution to date? Have you got a DYK credit? Have you checked the new notability polcies? (This las one will be worked with me together). — ΛΧΣ21 01:27, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes I have written a couple articles (although not great). Eddie Dodson and Georgia Marble Company are the ones I can find. Both of those articles had a DYK. I also had some dyks done off WP:AFC (but I didn't create those articles). No I haven't checked the new notability policies. CrimsonBlue (talk) 01:34, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
Okay; good. We'd start with the most important: when you left, the WP:BLP policy was established? I'd like to start with the several notability policies to refresh memories. We'll start off with the notability policies that are related to the topics you want to work in. — ΛΧΣ21 01:48, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Yes it was established, however I don't remember much about it. I find writing about criminals pretty interesting, but I don't know what other content areas I want to work in. CrimsonBlue (talk) 01:56, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

When you say criminals, you mean murderers, thiefs and the like? If that's so, then the WP:BLP policy will be crucial for living criminals. Also, the general criteria corresponding to criminals is WP:CRIME. You may want to take a look. I think those are the best places to start. After you update youself with the criteria of inclusion, we can continue with the next phase, wich would be DYK/GA or XfD/CSD, whichever you want first :) — ΛΧΣ21 02:05, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
Ok, I have finished reviewing these documents. No questions so far. Whatever you think is best to move onto next works for me! CrimsonBlue (talk) 03:36, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
Well, you may like to spend a time testing these new knowledge by participating a bit on AFD... I guess that you have participated there before no? DYK hasn't changed a lot, so I think we can go first with XfD. CSD is a bit more difficult than the former, so we'll take the easy route :) — ΛΧΣ21 03:40, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

My talk page[edit]

Why did you revert my edits on my own talk page? I assume it was some sort of accident? --Sue Rangell 02:10, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Ugh? o.0 yes, it should have been an accident. Maybe an edit conflict? — ΛΧΣ21 02:11, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Working out the details at Wikipedia:Today's article for improvement[edit]

The RFC for TAFI is nearing it's conclusion, and it's time to hammer out the details over at the project's talk page. There are several details of the project that would do well with wider input and participation, such as the article nomination and selection process, the amount and type of articles displayed, the implementation on the main page and other things. I would like to invite you to comment there if you continue to be interested in TAFI's development. --NickPenguin(contribs) 02:28, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

2013 in the United States[edit]

I am editing 2013 in the United States at the moment to add in the deaths, but the references seem to have gone a little funny, I will never be able to fix it, would you possibly be able to? I'm only on January 2, though, so should I add in the deaths for the rest of the dates first?--Lucky102 (talk) 13:14, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

When you say funny, you talk about all the urls that are there? I can fixe them for you of course :) And then, I'll show you how to make them look sexy xD — ΛΧΣ21 18:49, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
Somebody removed many of the people I added in, because they said you go on that they just said Americans.--Lucky102 (talk) 21:18, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
I see. Why that IP hasn't been warned for unexplained removal of content? The IP has done that twice. Continue expanding the list, Lucky. If that IP reverts you again, come here at my talk and I'll handle things. I am a bit shocked about this. I'll see if I can make the references pretty for you today. — ΛΧΣ21 21:23, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

File converting?[edit]

Hey, just because it seems like you know a lot of tech stuff (I think you do), do you know if I can covert an Adobe Flash animation to a type of file that is allowed on Wikipedia?--Dom497 (talk) 19:57, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Let me see. It is indeed possible. Actually, can you send me the original .swf file? Also, if you designed the flash animation, I mean, if you have the source .fla file, much better.... — ΛΧΣ21 01:32, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Santa María de La Cabeza castle GAN[edit]

Hahc21, I just saw on my watchlist that you've nominated this article for GAN just two days after I did the GAR and delisted it. I have to tell you that, having looked at it, I do not believe it is ready yet. You have made improvements, but it still needs a thorough copyedit. I'd like to ask you to voluntarily withdraw it immediately. Thank you. BlueMoonset (talk) 15:50, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

I asked two copyeditors to take a look, and left a note that a reviewer with expertise on castles would be preferred. I don't expect an easy pass and I know that it still needs some work; I believe that the only way I can completely fix it is under the eyes of an experienced castles writer, and that can be done at GAN. — ΛΧΣ21 15:52, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
Frankly, if the copyedit had not been completed an hour ago, I would have failed the nomination just now. The time to bring in the copyeditors is before you resubmit, not after, and you're lucky that one of them was available so quickly. And, for that matter, a peer review by a castles writer could have also been done before resubmitting as well. I'm disappointed you chose to resubmit so quickly, and with an article you knew was still in problematic shape.
Incidentally, I was wondering whether the article name should perhaps be "Santa María de la Cabeza castle" with a lowercase "la", as it is in the titles of a couple of your sources. (The article on the saint herself uses lowercase.) BlueMoonset (talk) 21:12, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
I wondered the same thing and, frankly, don't understand the unseemly haste with this article. An encyclopedia should be built with thought, not speed, and the articles themselves are more important than their editors. Miniapolis 03:58, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
I have no haste. It will probably take a week or two before it is reviewed. So, I saw no harm by listing it immediately so that I could fix the issues and at the same time have it already awaiting a review at GAN. I have no hurry. I am building a good topic of about 14 articles and this will take time. — ΛΧΣ21 06:08, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
I don't quite understand your dissapointment. GAN represents improvement. As I wasn't able to fix it by myself completely, I was sure that the reviewer would have. That's how the process works. Only a rough minor percent of the articles submitted at GAN are close to the standard when nominated. Also, I find interesting the approach you've taken with this article. The way you've been so interested on its quality development thrills me; maybe it's just me watching ghosts where there are none. With regard to the change of name, I have no problem. If you think that a lowercase "la" is correct, then you are very welcome to rename it :) — ΛΧΣ21 21:22, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
My disappointment is that I had just spent a great deal of time doing my first-ever GAR—it's not pleasant having to tell someone that their baby is not only not at a certain level, but worse having to do so after they had been told it was—pointing out where and how the article fell short of GA after it had inexplicably been given the green plus sign. As it says right at the top of the GAN page, "If you believe an article meets the Good article criteria, you may nominate it". While I can understand you believing it the first time you nominated the article, but when you renominated it today, you had to know it wasn't close to meeting those criteria, since I'd just told you it had major prose problems, and you hadn't yet had anyone look it over for you. Sure, a great many articles aren't close to the GA level the first time they are nominated. But they ought to be the next time around, and the author should certainly have attempted to address the various points raised in the previous review before renominating it. To renominate two days after being delisted without the requested major copyedit completed? I don't see how that can be justified. BlueMoonset (talk) 00:07, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
It was technically my first GAR too. And the first time one of my articles was delisted. It felt very bad; I have to admit I felt discouraged after that, even when I knew that you were right. I'm being honest when I say that I put it on the GAN qeue to find someone to help me improve it, not to have it passed again without a very deep review. Even after the copyedit, I still feel it needs work, and I have a strange feeling inside of me that dettached me from the article. It's like the magic died. Maybe is because of the GAR (I withdrew all my DYK noms because of it). I apologize if you felt I was underestimating all the effort you took telling me how bad my article was, I didn't mean it... — ΛΧΣ21 00:54, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

() A problem with GAN, I think, is that it only takes one reviewer to approve an article; there's no second opinion or oversight. I looked at the original GA nomination (which was only a few days ago!), and the article seemed to have been given the green light too quickly. This isn't the first...um, less-than-GA I've seen as a copy editor, and these rush jobs lead to unpleasant situations like this. Miniapolis 04:11, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Featured pix[edit]

I have a question about that project. How does one go about nominating a picture if he didn't take the picture? AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 20:49, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Well, featured pictures represent the best pictures on Wikipedia, regardless who took them. They are graphical depictions holding a very high encyclopedic value, great visual quality, etc. Although you can be able to take a picture of such standard, there is no need for the picture to be yours. If you happen to find a very good picture, you can take it to FPC and see if its good enough to become a featured asset of the 'pedia. — ΛΧΣ21 21:28, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
Is there a requirement that one get the permission of the person who uploaded/took the pic first? AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 21:43, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
No. Permission is not needed. Of course, if you see that the uploader of the image is a constant FPC nominator, it'll be sure he'd nominate it too. Also, if you take the pic to FPC and it is promoted, the credit goes to you and to the one who uploaded it too :) — ΛΧΣ21 21:51, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for the explanations. Looks like a nice place to work with less drama than some other places. AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 21:56, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
Indeed. Most "featured" assessment processes are very calmed and drama-free if you avoid talk pages. I've had a very pleasant experience at FAC, FLC and now FPC. The good articles process is very straight-forward and drama-free too. As of late, FAC has been the one with more drama, but as I said, if the talk pages you avoid, have issues you would not (a la Master Yoda Face-grin.svg). Happy editing Strikeout. It's very nice to see you again :) — ΛΧΣ21 22:06, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
(ec) I thought so ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:11, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
Wow. I was aware of that convo, but didn't read it until now. Why the hell Colin was acting like that? I mean, I value the contributions of Davenbelle and Merridew, although I do not approve their sockpuppetry by any means. I think we shouldn't judge the content taking into consideration who wrote it (or in this case, uploaded it). Anyone can end up being randomly sockpuppeting (and I saw that proven today by a user I didn't believe could've done that), but that doesn't mean that we have to delist all their FAs, delete all their images and their files, delete their pages and assume they never existed. — ΛΧΣ21 22:21, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, I feel understood ;) - The discussion was closed before I could add how it feels when you lost a brother to be told that he was poor company and you should be ashamed. The stunning pic is seen every day by many in the world, so I won't push further. - While you typed this I remembered a good conversation with Mat and left a note under your barnstar. - Just got a new GA, matching GA, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:34, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
I saw your message there :) I still have (and will ever do, to be honest) a good vision of what Mat was for the pedia. I know she made a bit of a mess on FAC; I also know that some people overreact and maximize things were they shouldn't. It's like some kind of obsession with them that they cannot stop talking about them and mentioning how they made a mess before being thankfully blocked/banned. Maybe it's because I always take a more calmed and thoughtful approach to thinks, and I always give everything the weigh it deserves, that my views about several things differ from that of the community (or specific members of the community who end up being confused with the real community as a whole). I think I'm graced for being free from dramas. The last time I got involved in one, I almost retired. So I prefer just to write good content and stay away from harmful environments. — ΛΧΣ21 22:47, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
If you follow the link in the message there you read how I almost retired. I screamed only that first time, thinking we are losing the best, - now I have my red cat ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:58, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
Oh! But thats my red cat too! Although, this one could fit well ;) — ΛΧΣ21 23:12, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

This just occurred to me: Does one get WikiCup points for a FP nomination or does he have to be the uploader? AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 01:14, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

To be able to receive points, you have to do substantial work on the picture. If you found it on the internet, you can't get points. But if you found it on the internet, edited it a lot or found it on wiki and edited it a lot to meet the FP standard, then you can claim points. If you took the picture yourself you can claim points too. For example, I am not the uploader of this file: Enterprise_lifted.jpg, but I have done substantial work on it to improve the contrast, lightning and colour. So, if it reaches FP status, I can claim points for the cup. — ΛΧΣ21 01:21, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
I see (have you nominated it?). So, how do you edit a picture? AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 01:24, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Not yet :) Maybe later after some of the noms I have at FPC (which, sadly, can be counted for points) are closed. Well, if you see that a good picture (in quality and size) needs some retouches to meet the criteria, you download the original file to your computer, make a copy (this is a recommendation of mine), open the image on ImageReady or Photoshop (Picasa works too for images below 50MB, I guess) and do the changes. Of course, you have to have a level of knowledge in photography to be able to make the proper improvements to the picture. — ΛΧΣ21 01:40, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Well, I guess I'm afraid that for the time being, I'll just have to participate in discussions and not worry too much about WikiCup points. AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 01:51, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Don't worry about the points. By making good content and forgetting about the points, you will easily get them without ending schizophrenic. I have only reviewed like 6 GANs and written 3 GAs and I'm second on the cup (I was first for several days), so you don't have to worry too much: it is supposed to be fun :) — ΛΧΣ21 01:58, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, okay. I don't expect to contend for the championship or even to get especially close, but I don't want to get shut out. I do have an FAC going, so that would definitely help. AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 02:02, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
No one wants :) I am not sure if I will be able to contend for it although I make a lot of content which ends up being good or featured. I think that you can start making GA reviews. That helps a lot. After that, you can start writing well-referenced articles to take to DYK (or expand short articles fivefold, which also works). And there it goes... :) — ΛΧΣ21 02:05, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
The problem is that content expansion is not my area of expertise and I don't feel ready for GA reviewing yet. AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 02:08, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Yeahm I know. You have always been a vandal fighter no? I see that you like to work on Baseball topics (as well as being an active member of the TAFI process) and do mostly maintenance work. I guess that you should start with DYK if you want to familiarize with content writing (although, as a funny note, I somewhat started with FLC) before jumping to higher grounds. You told me above that you had an FAC ongoing; which is it? :) — ΛΧΣ21 02:15, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
It's this one. Actually, I haven't been doing very much vandal fighting lately. Does a DYK review count for the WikiCup? AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 02:18, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Wow, amazing. As it was nominated this year, if it passes, you'd have 100 points :D. I've completely abandoned vandal fighting since Catfish retired; most of my maintenance work lies in the File namespace now... And no :( Reviewing a DYK does not count for points; neither a good article reasessment. — ΛΧΣ21 02:27, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Do you think it will pass? AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 02:30, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
It seems to be a very solid candidate. I will give you a review of it; maybe tomorrow (bookmarking now). I read the lead and first two sections and it is interesting and catchy, which is good. Let's see how it turns out :) — ΛΧΣ21 02:35, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. I do have some questions about how scoring is handled in the WikiCup, but Lord willing, those can wait for another time (you're probably tired of my blather). AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 02:38, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Oh please! You can ask me as much questions as you wish, and i will be glad to answer them if I know the answer. I'm not tired of talking to you :) — ΛΧΣ21 02:55, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Well, since you insist. What I was wondering is how do points carry over during different WikiCup rounds? AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 02:58, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Wow, that was a hard one. From what I can see, the count is restarted each time a round begins. So, if you got 500 points during the first round, you will start from zero on the next one. At the end, all your points are sumed up Not, they are not sumed up (I guess, I'd ask J Milburn about this) and the one who got the higher number of points, wins. — ΛΧΣ21 03:08, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Ok, I asked him. Btw, I'm thinking about doing a GA review myself. AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 03:15, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Yeah. I was quite confused because a user making 2242 points on a single round is crazy. And good :) An advice: Pick a short one. Short ones are a good start. Maybe an article by Hurricanehink, Sasata or Arsenikk will show you what is expected from a good article candidate. — ΛΧΣ21 03:18, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
I imagine he probably had some stuff he was saving for the last round. I have started my first review: how does it look? AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 04:02, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Oh well, that may be the case. About your review, it looks very good and detailed. Although, I am worried by the article you just picked up. TonyTheTiger sometimes nominates articles which are not even close to the criteria and I have had rough times with his noms in the past because of that...ΛΧΣ21 04:06, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Well, I don't know about that, but I think this article should be fine. AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 04:10, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Well, the best think you can do to check if the article is complete is to do a search on google to see if any key information is missing on the article. I personally consider that the personal life section is a bit short. it may be missing something. — ΛΧΣ21 04:16, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Didn't find anything. I don't know, maybe some of the stuff from the college section could be moved to the personal section, I'm not too sure. AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 04:25, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Hmm okay. Well, about the info and sections, that's your call. Maybe you can write that as a general comment or as a recommendation on the review page and discuss it with Tony :) — ΛΧΣ21 04:27, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Perhaps. I'd like to let him address some of the other things first. Btw, when are you planning your next RfA to be? AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 04:33, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
I still don't know. I was thinking about running in March, when I reach one year of continued editing. I should also get rid of the weird NAC restriction I have.... Although it seems like it doesn't matter. But I don't know. Maybe I end up not running again :) What about you? Still up to letting me nom you in April? — ΛΧΣ21 04:36, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I wouldn't suggest that you try running until after you get that restriction lifted, it would probably be enough to bring down the RfA all by itself. As for me, I'm not really sure. Dennis Brown, Go Phightins! and Yash! are, if I remember correctly, all also interested in nominating, so that's four right there. I'm just not sure when I want to run. April would be the soonest, but it could be later, maybe even never. AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 04:42, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
We are in the same position then. Why don't we just run together when we feel ready? We both have our noms awaiting (I have Yash! and other two) so we just need to give them the green light to throw ourselves to the wolves :) — ΛΧΣ21 04:47, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
You have the same noms as me or is it Yash! and two others? I'm not clear on that. Regardless, that's an intriguing suggestion, it will depend on if we are both ready at the same time. AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 04:53, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Lol. I have Yash! and two other editors (not the same as yours). Well, It'll be fun :) I am not thrilled by adminship, to be honest. Most things I wanna do I am able to with the rights I hold right now. I am exploring new horizons as of late. Recently, I was promoted to coordinating Mediator on es-wiki (somewhat like the leading member of the Spanish Wikipedia Mediation Commitee) and became an Image reviewer at Commons. I am very interested in licensing and dispute resolution as well as cross-wiki work and image copyvio at Commons :) — ΛΧΣ21 04:59, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

You have engaged in an edit war[edit]

Pic and treats[edit]

You archive fast! Loosely connected to our last talk: did you see TFP today? I admire her work! - Enjoy the treats, - I then missed the detail that the one to be banned fixed the closing of the appeal ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:37, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Wow. Amazing picture indeed; I didn't know about her existence (or did I? Can't remember). And that was a very interesting read. I have found that the miraclous place I thought Wikipedia to be was only the newbie illusion we all see when we start editing: only to later discover that it was sand disguised as water. Then, we blow our mouths full of distasteful sand, breathing fast, and trying not to recognize that several years of editing later, we are all still thirsty to find the Oasis we were promised at first. — ΛΧΣ21 17:04, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Wow; she still edits on Commons, just like Fae and (I won't say the name). Those are amazing pictures indeed. I just checked Mbz1's talk (or how it was on February 2012) and, well, I won't say anything about it :| — ΛΧΣ21 21:05, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Wish you were right about her editing on Commons, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:18, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Damn, I saw a bad link. Well, time will tell who lost the most. — ΛΧΣ21 21:20, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
How about more editor retention? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:24, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
I am listed there as a member; you know, for those who feel hurt each time a user leaves :) Although I think that something bigger should be done: We cannot defeat a virus by hiding people from it, but by developing a cure. — ΛΧΣ21 22:26, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
104 and 107, now I see you there ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:31, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes :) Although, a dilemma has been flooding my mind recently: How could I be able to make other editors stay if I have considered retirement twice in a week? I still don't know the answer, but I am feeling (again) greatly discouraged by how some things are managed on the English Wikipedia. I have not been affected by it, but other users have, and it manages to touch me from afar. It just costs me to push the edit button as of late, and I hope I regain the force and determination I once had back in September 2011 when I pushed that button for the first time in three years, and kept pushing it two thousand times per month ever since. — ΛΧΣ21 01:32, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Detrás de Mi Ventana[edit]

Javier created the article for Detrás de Mi Ventana and nominated it for DYK. I just thought since it's related to Ricardo Arjona, that you should know. Erick (talk) 21:11, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Yay. I saw. I stalk you :) Good work. I noticed when you edited Arjona's awards to wikilink the song :) — ΛΧΣ21 21:13, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
LOL, all I did was link it for the both of you. I didn't had any involvement with the article. Erick (talk) 21:18, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
LOL. Yes, Javier was the one who created it. The "Good work" was for him hehe xD — ΛΧΣ21 21:22, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Re: question[edit]

That looks to be the case; only other things at GAN right now from you are nominations. Wizardman 01:50, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

DYK courtesy[edit]

FYI, a DYK hook you approved: Template:Did you know nominations/Vamos A Celebrar. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 15:49, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

I didn't verify if it was a copyvio. My mistake. I see that you have done a thorough review of it; good. Just remember to be nice with Diva; I'm afraid he may not completely understand what copyvio means. — ΛΧΣ21 18:10, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for jumping in there ... reviewing the old articles is the best outcome for all. Regards, SandyGeorgia (Talk) 18:34, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
Hahc21, can I ask you to please recheck Template:Did you know nominations/Papi Te Quiero as soon as you can? It's been in my eye to promote, but with the recent discussion on Diva's articles, I wouldn't feel comfortable doing so until it's been checked again for the translation and other close paraphrasing/quoting issues. Thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 19:07, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
BlueMoonSet, Hahc21 indicated on my talk, and on Diva's talk, that he's not at home now, but will be in about six hours. Glad that he's stepping up to help on this one! SandyGeorgia (Talk) 19:17, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
Okay. At home. Let me take a look at that one. — ΛΧΣ21 00:37, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, SandyGeorgia, and thanks, Hahc21. Looks like it's been checked and has come up clean. BlueMoonset (talk) 01:55, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Sorry but I am the leading Mediator of two BIG cases on the Spanish Wikipedia and have no time to attend any DRN case by now. Also, I am having some personal issues, as well as my professional studies, so I am not able to take some of my time to dedicate to resolve disputes. I would really like to help, but I'm just not willing to, and can't do it. Regards. — ΛΧΣ21 01:41, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
