Islam in Malaysia[edit]

The IP was right to remove the section, even if s/he gave the wrong reason. It is entirely unsourced and that raises WP:BLP issues. --NeilN talk to me 23:44, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Note I have moved your comment to the bottom per WP:TPG. --NeilN talk to me 23:50, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
I agree that the section is poor, obviously. However, there's obviously such a thing as "Manhaj Islam Hadhari" that used to be encouraged by the former prime minister or whatever... do you propose that there should be no information on it? Obviously you know WP policies better, but that doesn't sound right. I honestly have nothing to do with the subject and have no intention of researching it, if I edited the section according to what I know it would probably say close to nothing at all. ʝunglejill 23:54, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
See my response on the article's talk page. --NeilN talk to me 00:12, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

RE: Yo Soy 132[edit]

Thank you for the advice, I'll keep it in mind. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 04:58, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

It was created with the purpose of notify readers that the page is widely visible and edited at the moment they are reading the article, and many information may change rapidly. Also it is used if an event, like a disaster or a spaceflight, is continuous. Another option to add it is what users did at Occupy the Farm (adding the category "Current events" without the template), but I don't know the validity to do that. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 16:45, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
Quite an article coming along;. After the election you could try and get it for GA. Just a heads up though to be consistent in wikilink and italics for media outlets. I added an infobox, which you two can further improve. Im not following it as closely(Lihaas (talk) 13:55, 14 June 2012 (UTC)).
Don't worry, every correction helps me, also I noticed the not/no and I didn't analize which was correct. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 23:41, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Capitalization of dodo[edit]

Hi Junglejill. I saw your question about it. I'm afraid dodo should be lower case. It isn't a proper noun and, as a species name, it's subject to MOS:LIFE in the Manual of Style. Kind regards, --Stfg (talk) 09:38, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Sorry about that. Looking again, it seems to depend on what the IOC lists say. I'll look further. --Stfg (talk) 09:43, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
You were right to capitalize, per Wikipedia:WikiProject Birds#Bird names and article titles. Sorry about the previous confusion. Kind regards, Simon. --Stfg (talk) 09:52, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
Hoozah. That is really good to hear. Capitalization was a total pain, with all the files, quotes etc. containing "dodo". Thanks, now I know where to find definitive instructions on capitalization. ʝunglejill 23:22, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Hi, user. Thanks for the reply. I actually edited the section during the last year, but because of my work, I leave them for the past 6 months so that I could let other people edit it. Now although its good to come back at here, but unfortunately many of the articles, including the Arab Spring itself has a lot of un-written important events and major errors, for example the 3rd Jordanian premier resigns and the anti-regime in Mauritania (just to let you know for trivia) and the duration of revolts in Egypts ENDs at 18 days ONLY. But bottomline, thank you. 175.137.55.62 (talk) 09:44, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the new computer[edit]

Trust Issues (song)[edit]

hi marvins room is on the en wiki by drake maybe someone could fix trust issues up a lil bit. --Jme113k (talk) 13:54, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, for some reason I couldn't find who Drake was before. Removed the tag for now but the song probably doesn't deserve its own article. Will take a look later. ʝunglejill 14:00, 14 June 2012 (UTC)


Hi, I have removed your CSD nomination at Trust Issues (song). A redirect is not eligible for deletion under WP:CSD#A1. Trust Issues (song) was turned into a redirect by User:TexasAndroid for the reason that the subject has "no indication of independent notability" for an article. As you nominated it for deletion under CSD, I'm assuming you don't challenge the view that the article shouldn't exist. If you think the redirect also shouldn't exist, then you should take this up at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion. Thanks! -- KTC (talk) 22:12, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. Isn't this too bureaucratic? Let me recap: someone created this as an ungrammatical, completely deletable one-liner about a non-notable musical recording. I patrolled the page and marked it for speedy deletion. The creator then informed me that this song is by a famous rapper - I didn't realize this, because he wrote Drakes instead of Drake. I was in a hurry to fulfill a meatspace obligation, so I removed the speedy deletion template just to be sure, and figured I'd take care of it later. Another editor then blanked the page and turned it into a redirect to Drake's discography. I have no idea why - no pages link to it, and even if they did, they shouldn't - someone who clicks on "trust issues (song title)" doesn't want to be redirected to the discography; they clicked because they thought there was an article with something interesting to say about it. Now you're telling me it can't be speedy deleted on a technicality - this is the time to ignore all rules and just get rid of this misbegotten creation. ʝunglejill 22:40, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
If I'd not erred on the side of caution and left the speedy deletion template up, the article would've been a goner. I see that I'm allowed to expand a redirect into an article. If you're uncomfortable with deleting it, I'm going to "expand" it back into its original state and nominate it for speedy deletion. Does this sound absurd enough? ʝunglejill 23:00, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
It's not unusual to redirect a page where the subject doesn't stand up on its own as an article into a parent subject, whether that be song -> album, artist or whatever. (See Category:Redirects from songs for examples.) Hopefully the target mention the subject in some way, but that's not always the case. As long as the target of a redirect is relevant, it does no harm and is potentially useful to someone. I've retargeted the redirect to Take Care where Trust Issues are mentioned. -- KTC (talk) 23:23, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
I totally disagree that it does no harm. As someone who's used Wikipedia for years as a non-editor, I can tell you it's very annoying to click on a link because you think there's some notable content behind it and end up on some generic article like a discography. I'm pretty sure laziness is the only reason this redirect was born. Whatever, file this one for the lolz/wtf. ʝunglejill 23:41, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
I can understand your point of view even if I disagree with it. As I said before, if you have a problem with a specific redirect, then you can bring it up at WP:RFD. If you want to bring up the general issue of redirects such as this, then I'm sure you will get a lively discussion at Wikipedia:Requests for comment. On the point of laziness, not really as the editor who changed it to a redirect in the first place is an administrator who could just as easily had deleted it. -- KTC (talk) 23:51, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

I was going to give you an award...[edit]

...but the award creating thingy wouldn't work. :( So I'll just say, I admire the way you've taken on a controversial topic because you care. (Re: the Egyptian Revolution article) Whether you continue to try and influence what happens on that page or not, you've made your opinion known, and that's awesome! Don't let them get you down, OK? Tlqk56 (talk) 22:44, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

</rant> It's even worse! I've since discovered that every single protest that started on 2011 (that's a lot) is still listed as "ongoing." 2011 Egyptian revolution is over 190,000 bytes, and just today someone added information about the current presidential elections. Timeline of the 2011 Egyptian revolution has events added to it daily. Didn't anyone notice it's 2012? Wait, they did, the obvious response is to change the article's title. Why don't we create Timeline of the United States, Timeline of Wikipedia and Timeline of consciousness, too? </rant> Thanks, I appreciate it! ʝunglejill 22:54, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
Oh shit. There's a timeline of the United States??! ʝunglejill 22:55, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Copy Edit Request as Per Invitation[edit]

Hi, Jill. The page is Nayef bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud. There are issues with command of English throughout the article, but it is currently being actively edited as the subject died very recently. If you want to copy edit it quietly go ahead, but I wouldn't be too noisy about it as at least one of the regular editors of that article is kinda touchy. Guyovski (talk) 22:28, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Hmm. It doesn't seem to have any glaring mistakes. I think 97% of Wikipedia articles are at about the same level of writing as this article. In my opinion, it doesn't merit a {{copy edit}} template; when there are so few mistakes, one should just correct them rather than put a template. Also, please note that foreign language sources are perfectly acceptable where no English counterpart exists. I think you misunderstood me; I only suggested to copyedit because I thought it was important to you. ʝunglejill 22:44, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
Hi, Jill. To my untrained eyes the English of that article is quite poor, but I'll accept what you say on the basis of your greater experience, and no doubt greater level of skill at copy editing. Thanks for having a look and giving me your honest assessment. (And if I was supposed to post all this on my talk page and put just a trackback on yours, I apologize.) Guyovski (talk) 00:27, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

HEEEEEELP!!![edit]

Hi, Jill. I'm having a major problem at Talk:Deaths in 2012 with User:Joseph A. Spadaro. The edit history for that talk page shows that things are rapidly going to hell. His user talk page suggests things have gone to hell before when he's been involved. I admit I haven't managed to defuse the conflict as well as I'd like to and maybe have even contributed to it, but all I want is for it to stop. The whole thing makes my ass sore and bores the heck out of me. Please help. Guyovski (talk) 16:47, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't understand what the issue is, or what you think I could do about it. ʝunglejill 17:54, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
I don't agree with that sentence but can read between the lines. Have a nice life. I shan't bother you again. :) Guyovski (talk) 20:19, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
Hey there. If you can read between the lines, what it says there is this: "I don't understand what the issue is" means you sent me a long talk page, I scanned it and could not locate what the issue is. "I don't understand what I could help with" means if you have a personal problem with an editor, I cannot intervene on your behalf if no violation of policy has occurred; if violation has occurred, then there are people on Wikipedia who deal specifically with that. Lastly, "sorry" means no offense is meant, and I am still being responsive and helpful. I was actually offended by your comment; I think it was flippant and completely inappropriate, considering that I've offered to help you several times. I make the effort to treat other editors in a thoughtful and considerate manner, and I suggest that you return the favor. ʝunglejill 23:52, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Hasheem Thabeet[edit]

Just FYI: Hasheem Thabeet's father is deceased; that fact is even mentioned in the reference that was already at the end of that paragraph. I don't mind that the article is semi-protected; frankly, I prefer it that way. But I just thought you should know that the IP's edit was not vandalism. Zagalejo^^^ 20:10, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Alright, cool. That's logical enough - that edit came from a vandal who occasionally makes good faith edits to sports pages. I went through so many unnoticed vandalizing edits s/he made, that I didn't bother to verify that one (I verified some others.) Either way, whether his parents are alive is trivia, right? Thanks for letting me know! ʝunglejill 20:27, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
No problem. I just thought it would be good to know, in case someone makes a similar edit in the future. I don't think the fact is essential info, so I don't plan to restore it myself. Zagalejo^^^ 23:16, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Are you interested?[edit]

Hi, JungleJill! I have an article I've been expanding over the last few weeks, and the truth is I don't know if I've created something good or a mess. (It has 52 refs, for example.) I think I'm about done info wise, but before I spend much more time on it, I'd love to have someone, or a couple of someones, just read it and give me some input. If you'd be willing to look at it I'd be really grateful, but if you're not interested, I understand. Time is limited. Do you know someone who might look at it for me? It's User:Tlqk56/John R Tunis. Thanks either way. Tlqk56 (talk) 15:59, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Hey! Sure I can take a look. Do you want me to make edits, give specific suggestions, or just general impressions? I can't suggest any specific editor, but you can go on the Wikipedia IRC channel and ask - I've been there a couple of times, and people routinely ask others to take a look at their work. I think wikipedia-en is the most active channel. It's good for a quick response. ʝunglejill 16:07, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
Well, I'm feeling so ambivalent about the page right now I'm sure what I need. :) I guess give it a once over and see if you think it's worth doing a close copy edit. Then feel free, if it is. Otherwise, any feedback would be great. I was thinking of taking it to DYK, but I've only had one experience there before, and I'm a little leery. In the meantime I'll look at IRC. Thanks. Tlqk56 (talk) 16:14, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I will combine the three types of feedback. Expect it in a couple of hours. It looks well proper at a half glace. ʝunglejill 17:02, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

The Tea Leaf - Issue Five[edit]

Stop by for a tasty glass of wiki-iced tea at the Teahouse, today!

Hi! Welcome to the fifth edition of The Tea Leaf, the official newsletter of the Teahouse!

  • Guest activity increased in July. Questions are up from an average of 36 per week in June to 43 per week in July, and guest profile creation has also increased. This is likely a result of the automatic invite experiments we started near the end of month, which seeks to lessen the burden on hosts and other volunteer who manually invite editors. During the last week of July, questions doubled in the Teahouse! (But don't let that deter you from inviting editors to the Teahouse, please, there are still lots of new editors who haven't found Teahouse yet.)
  • More Teahouse hosts than ever. We had 12 new hosts sign up to participate at the Teahouse! We now have 35 hosts volunteering at the Teahouse. Feel free to stop by and see them all here.
  • Phase two update: Host sprint. In August, the Teahouse team plans to improve the host experience by developing a simpler new-host creation process, a better way of surfacing active hosts, and a host lounge renovation. Take a look at the plan and weigh in here.
  • New Teahouse guest barnstar is awarded to first recipient: Charlie Inks. Using the Teahouse barnstar designed by Heatherawalls, hosts hajatvrc and Ryan Vesey created the new Teahouse Guest Barnstar. The first recipient is Charlie Inks, for her boldness in asking questions at the Teahouse. Check out the award in action here.
  • Teahouse was a hot topic at Wikimania! The Teahouse was a hot topic at Wikimania this past month, where editor retention and interface design was heavily discussed.

Hello, Jill!

Manatrayo is seeking help getting an article translated. I went to their talk page and saw that you had already invested a considerable amount of effort in helping with this submission, so I would like to defer the user to you. Please see their message on my talk page. Thank you. Cheers! Stella BATPHONEGROOVES 23:11, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

The Tea Leaf - Issue Six[edit]

Hi! Welcome to the sixth edition of The Tea Leaf, the official newsletter of the Teahouse!

  • Teahouse serves over 700 new editors in six months on Wikipedia! Since February 27, 741 new editors have participated at the Teahouse. The Q&A board and the guest intro pages are more active than ever.
A lovely little teahouse nestled in Germany from Wiki Loves Monuments
  • Automatic invites are doing the trick: 50% more new editors visiting each week. Ever since HostBot's automated invite trial phase began we've seen a boost in new editor participation. Automating a baseline set of invitations also allows Teahouse hosts to focus on serving hot cups of help to guests, instead of spending countless hours inviting.
  • Guests to the Teahouse continue to edit more & interact more with other community members than non-Teahouse guests according to six month metrics. Teahouse guests make more than twice the article edits and edit more talk pages than other new editors.
  • New host process implemented which encourages anyone to get started as a Teahouse host in a few easy steps. Stop by the hosts page and become a Teahouse host today!
  • Host lounge renovations nearing completion. Working closely with Teahouse hosts, we've made some major renovations to the Teahouse Host Lounge - the main hangout and resource space for hosts. Learn more about the improvements here.

As always, thanks for supporting the Teahouse project! Stop by and visit us today!

Re: Your userpage[edit]

Hello! I'm sorry I missed your message; I was away for an extended period and wasn't able to be on very much. My password is currently on a CD at my home of record, so I've had to be anonymous for some time now. Shame Wikipedia's gotten so anti-anon these days, as a side note. Anyway, you're quite welcome to copy the layout—I copied it from Misza13, after all. :p Octane [improve me?] 16.09.12 2121 (UTC)

The Tea Leaf - Issue Seven (special Birthday recap)[edit]

A celebratory cupcake from the Teahouse Birthday Badge

It's been a full year since the Teahouse opened, and as we're reflecting on what's been accomplished, we wanted to celebrate with you.

Teahouse guests and hosts are sharing their stories in a new blog post about the project.

1 year statistics for Teahouse visitors compared to invited non-visitors from the pilot:

Metric Control group Teahouse group Contrast
Average retention (weeks with at least 1 edit) 5.02 weeks 8.57 weeks 1.7x retention
Average number of articles edited 58.7 articles 116.9 edits 2.0x articles edited
Average talk page edits 36.5 edits 85.6 edits 2.4x talk page edits
Average article space edits 129.6 edits 360.4 edits 2.8x article edits
Average total edits (all namespaces) 182.1 edits 532.4 edits 2.9x total edits

Over the past year almost 2000 questions have been asked and answered, 669 editors have introduced themselves, 1670 guests have been served, 867 experienced Wikipedians have participated in the project, and 137 have served as hosts. Read more project analysis in our CSCW 2013 paper

Last month January was our most active month so far! 78 profiles were created, 46 active hosts answered 263 questions, and 11 new hosts joined the project.

Come by the Teahouse to share a cup of tea and enjoy a Birthday Cupcake! Happy Birthday to the Teahouse and thank you for a year's worth of interest and support :-)
