AppleInsider[edit]

I think AppleInsider probably meets WP:RS and thus it seems reasonable that they have their own article. Care to discuss it further? -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 21:57, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Sure. If you look at the PROD concern, it wasn't the reliability by the number of sources present, namely only one that's independent of the subject. You can read Wikipedia:Notability (web)#Criteria for yourself, but it requires multiple sources unless it's won an award (a fact which should be cited itself). I'm also concerned, but less so, about the quality of the existing source, which is seven years old and mentions the site as part of a onetime event. Nothing about what the site is or does on a daily basis is sourced. HereToHelp (talk to me) 22:49, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
I don't know what you can write about so I've re-prodded it. I guess if its deleted it should redirect to Apple Rumor Community. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 07:09, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
Technically, one a PROD template has been removed the article can never be rePRODed, but the closing admin might make an exception. If not, it would make for an uncontroversial AfD. HereToHelp (talk to me) 16:42, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Nanosaur2Screenshot2.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Nanosaur2Screenshot2.png. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. 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 media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:07, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:IPhone 4 in hand.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:IPhone 4 in hand.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. Mosmof (talk) 23:33, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Unprotect[edit]

Can you please go through your your protection logs and remove any outdated protections, particularly to Apple-related articles? Marcus Qwertyus 00:49, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

These fall into two categories: full protection of nonexistent pages or redirects that sound like, but are not, Apple products, and semiprotection of actual articles. Pages in the former category should remain protected unless Apple releases a product of that name (e.g. iPad 3, about which nothing verifiable can be said -- at the moment). However, I changed the destination of a few of these redirects. In the second category, I notice:
  • Another admin, Courcelles, originally semiprotected iPad due to vandalism. I will unprotect the page.
  • iPod has been semiprotected for more than two years. I unprotected it.
  • iPhone is not protected.
  • Apple Inc. has been protected for more than a year. Unprotected.
  • Edit protection for Macintosh expired in August and apparently there has not been trouble.
  • I feel that Steve Jobs would attract a large amount of vandalism if unprotected, but if you insist we can try it and find out.
I reserve the right to reinstate semiprotection if a large amount of vandalism occurs, on a page-by-page basis. I also think that having sysop-only move protection is nothing to be concerned about. This was hardly an exhaustive survey or Apple articles, and I will happily examine any page you name specifically. Thank you bringing the matter to my attention. Cheers, HereToHelp (talk to me) 05:39, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
I was thinking more along the lines of IPhone 4gs, iPhone four, iPhone 4 prototype, Original iPad, Smart Cover, and Smart Covers. (I don't see how a small discussion can be made mandatorily enforceable by page protection)


To be honest with you, WP:Chrystal is a poorly thought-out policy and it should be interpreted within reason per WP:NOTBUREAU. The policy was originally crafted with the intent of keeping people from publishing their own rumors but "does not put a blanket bar on all speculation from outside sources." After I made a few wording changes to clarify the interpretation of the policy, in a discussion I was not involved in, a few editors got consensus to rewrite the policy with a blanket ban on rumor articles. The new policy does not appear to be within reason. If this shot in the dark, or all these can get an article, why can't iPhone 4S? If we're not supposed to document unacknowledged products then how are we supposed to document unacknowledged government special access programs like Area 51? Marcus Qwertyus 07:07, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
It's certainly a complicated issue, and I don't have the final say. My key concern is that while it may be possible to write a perfectly good article about product speculation, it often (usually) isn't actually done. Instead you get anonymous users creating three different copies of the same article with poor sourcing and abuse of formatting and no experienced user knows they exist and it's just total garbage from a quality control standpoint. That's the situation I'm trying to prevent - not experienced editors coming to a civil, thought-out consensus. More harm is done by people who don't know what they are doing, or don't bother to understand all sides of the issue, than someone who has made an informed decision different from yours. I'm trying to take the raw enthusiasm and shape it into something coherent. How well I achieve that goal is an open question.
I'll break your specific pages into three categories. The iPhone 4 redirects will never be worthy of articles, and on the off-chance that changes, they can be unprotected at that time. Unlocking Original iPad could start that whole discussion again, which I'm not opposed to doing in general, but the new consensus needs to precede the changing of the page. Besides, by the precedent of iPhone (original), you'd want iPad (original), and that page is unlocked. As for Smart Cover, you don't even need to start a discussion, just generate enough quality content in the unlocked iPad accessories#Smart Cover to show that it deserves a separate article. If you insist I will unprotect Smart Cover, but I really think the accessories page will suffice.
Please read item #5 of WP:CRYSTAL, which specifically forbids articles on product announcements. This may be the part that you referred to as "a few editors got consensus to rewrite the policy with a blanket ban on rumor articles," but it actually codifies what I've seen happen naturally. When the iPhone 4 leaked prototypes became so important we had to include them (though I was reluctant), they were part of the history section of the main iPhone article until the iPhone 4 was officially announced. This actually works in your favor: it's easier to craft a well-written and well-sourced paragraph than it is to write a whole article and justify its existence from meager speculative sources. Notice that these are very different arguments from "I must follow policy" (which, secondarily and subject to interpretation, still applies).
I'd like to emphasize another nuance of the policy, which is that plenty of topics which should not have a separate article can be mentioned or even discussed at length in articles not solely about them. My recommendation to you is to shift your focus from what articles we do or do not have to what content we have. Notice whether and to what extent it is organized, coherent, easy to maintain, well-sourced, and links to other content when appropriate. Cheers, HereToHelp (talk to me) 04:28, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear HereToHelp,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chlopeck (talkcontribs) 22:48, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

iPad 3[edit]

Hello, many rumors have it that the "iPad 3" might be released tomorrow. I have started a document on my computer for it in Word. But when it was released I want to upload it instantly. But I am unable to, because you have created a redirect from the page so I cant edit it. It can currently only be edited by admins. It would be great if you could make this page, "semi-protected", so when it is released tomorrow I can put up the article that second. Thank you.-- DreamFieldArts 11:23, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

I've been through enough of these that I know better than to try and hold back the fans. Try not to go too crazy. HereToHelp (talk to me) 02:08, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
Haha, yeah I just added the format, and put a note for people to edit it once product is released have a great day. -- DreamFieldArts 3:32, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Smart Covers redirect[edit]

The page, Smart Covers redirects to iPad, this needs to be changed so it redirects to iPad accessories#Smart Cover like the Smart Cover page does. It you could unprotect it so it can be changed, that would be great. --Astros4477 (talk) 04:11, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

From the editor

Welcome to the (slightly delayed) third issue of the Help Project newsletter.

The past month has once again been a busy one for my fellowship. The full results and conclusions from the extensive user survey on help pages are now available, and make interesting reading. These do confirm a number of our suspicions about Wikipedia help, and suggest that the current plan for the remainder of the fellowship is a sound approach.

Also last month I was fortunate enough to attend Wikimania 2012 in Washington DC, where I gave a presentation about help pages and the aforementioned survey results. You can find the slides from this on Commons. Wikimania was also a great opportunity for many discussions with staff and community members, and these brought up some interesting ideas which I hope to follow up on.

One of the things much discussed was the planned tutorial pages. I've been working on a new design for them which can be seen at User:The wub/sandbox/1, please let me know what you think (especially if you spot any bugs!).

Help Project newsletter : Issue 4[edit]

Question book magnify2.svg
The Help Project Newsletter
Issue IV - September 2012
Project news summary


From the editor

Hi, and welcome to the fourth issue of the Help Project newsletter.

It's been another busy month in the world of Wikipedia help. The results from the in-person usability tests conducted as part of the help pages fellowship have been released. There are no great surprises here, the tests confirmed that people have trouble with the existing help system, and people looking for help on the same topic often end up at wildly different pages. Editors who experienced a tutorial and/or edited a sandbox as part of their learning were noticeably more confident when editing a real article.

Drawing on that, three new "Introduction to" tutorials for new users have been created: referencing, uploading images and navigating Wikipedia. These join the popular existing introductions to policies and guidelines and talk pages. Feel free to edit them, but please do remember that the idea is to keep them simple and as free from extraneous details as possible. All three have been added to Help:Getting started, which is intended to be the new focal point for new editors, and will also be seeing a redesign soon.

In other news, the Article Feedback Tool (AFT) can now be used to collect feedback on help pages. By default it has been deployed to all pages in the Help: namespace. It can be disabled on any page by adding Category:Article Feedback Blacklist, or enabled for pages in other namespaces by adding Category:Article Feedback 5 Additional Articles. Once a page has AFT applied, you can add feedback using the form which appears at the bottom of it. Feedback can be reviewed by clicking "View feedback" in the sidebar, or the "Feedback from my watched pages" link at the top of your watchlist.

I'm now entering the final month of my fellowship, and will be focusing my efforts on making much needed improvements to Help:Contents, the main entrance point to our help system. It's been a pleasure working as a fellow, and I just want to thank all the people who have helped me or offered advice over the past months. That definitely won't be the end of my involvement in the Help Project though, I'll be sticking around as a volunteer and continuing to write this newsletter.

From the editor

Hello again from the Help Project!

In the last newsletter (which was quite a while ago sorry!) I talked about my fellowship and the plans for improving the main portal page, Help:Contents. Well I'm sad to say that my fellowship is now over, but very happy to say that the proposed improvements to that page have been completed and implemented. Do check it out if you haven't already.

Another important and frequently used help page, Wikipedia:Contact us, has also seen a significant revamp. You may recognise the design inspiration from the new tutorial pages.

In project news, we now have a subscription to the "article alerts" service. Any deletion nominations, move discussions, or requests for comments on pages within the Help Project's scope will now show up at Wikipedia:Help Project/Article alerts. So that's definitely a page which project members might want to watch.

It has been suggested to send a team from Wikipedia/Wikimedia: to share our own knowledge about help, learn from others in the open source community working on similar problems, and to carry out a sprint to improve some aspect of Wikipedia's help.

There may be support available for volunteers to attend from the Participation Support program (and your editor is certainly hoping to be there!) Please join the discussion in Meta's IdeaLab if you're interested, and/or have suggestions about what we could work on.

FIRST[edit]

Thanks for protecting and reverting the IP on the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology article. Nothing he added was constructive. I was surprised to see that the protection wasn't to prevent vandalism related to the current FRC season. Chris857 (talk) 00:45, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

You're welcome! Yes, it is weird to see fairly generic vandalism given the timing. HereToHelp (talk to me) 01:34, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Urinetown album art.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Urinetown album art.png. 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) 09:19, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 20[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Elm (programming language), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Haskell. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 08:52, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
