Disambiguation link notification for June 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Isoglobotriosylceramide, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Canine (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Stephen Hegyes[edit]

Please see if there are enough references in Stephen Hegyes now to merit removal of the caution re IMDB.

Dreadarthur (talk) 14:06, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

@Dreadarthur: I removed the IMDb maintenance tag. However, I encourage you to try to replace the IMDb sources with sources to reliable sources, if you can. Cheers, Mz7 (talk) 14:48, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Miss Multiverse page deleted[edit]

Greetings Stephen, i have created the page Miss Multiverse, it was deleted once before about a year ago, i dont understand why if it has all the right references, no use of promotion, just facts, there are even winners of this event whom have profiles on wikipedia... and its still deleted as if this beauty pageant does not exist.

There are many smaller beauty pageants listed on wikipedia, we are just not able to comprehend why this is happening, it takes time to learn how to use wikipedia and frustrating to see someone just come and delete it.

I will appreciate your help enormously

Best regards,

Jose Cuello (talk) 14:01, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

@Jose Cuello: Taking into consideration the opinion of you and others on the talk page of the article, I removed the speedy deletion tag. The editor who tagged the page has no objections. Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Mz7 (talk) 03:16, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

The 57th Dynasty[edit]

Hi again Mz7

Since last you helped (which I eternally grateful for), I have moved and further developed my draft article to hopefully a wikipedia entry standard. I have yet to source the associated photographs to be inserted in the article, but that's next on the agenda. I was wondering, as a matter of good practice, should I source and insert photos before "going live" with the article, or is it ok to simply go live and later on down the line continue to edit/develop?

Also, with regard to title case, when I moved the article, I mistakenly renamed it The 57th dynasty (small "d"). Am I being too exact in wanting to rename it again, this time with capital "D"? Apologies for the trivial nature of my questions, but I figure it's best to learn and implement good practice from the onset, rather than not.

Thanks in advance --Cornelius Henson (talk) 01:13, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Cornelius Henson. Your draft looks great at first glance! Wikipedia has a rather stringent image use policy that dictates what kind of images can be used in Wikipedia articles. Make sure your images are either freely licensed, in the public domain, or qualified under the non-free content criteria. It is certainly OK to "go live" now and worry about images later. Generally, article titles should be precise and reflective of how reliable sources exhibit it. I think you should definitely rename the page again to capitalize the 'd' if you feel that would make it more precise. Best, Mz7 (talk) 02:38, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Akhu Tönpa Review[edit]

Thanks for reviewing my article! I'll be adding content soon to that stubby little thing to give it some meat.

VisualEditor global newsletter—June 2014[edit]

VisualEditor-logo.svg
The character formatting menu

Did you know?

The character formatting menu, or "Style text" menu lets you set bold, italic, and other text styles. "Clear formatting" removes all text styles and removes links to other pages.

Do you think that clear formatting should remove links? Are there changes you would like to see for this menu? Share your opinion at MediaWiki.org.

The user guide has information about how to use VisualEditor.

The VisualEditor team is mostly working to fix bugs, improve performance, reduce technical debt, and other infrastructure needs. You can find on Mediawiki.org weekly updates detailing recent work.

  • They have moved the "Keyboard shortcuts" link out of the "Page options" menu, into the "Help" menu. Within dialog boxes, buttons are now more accessible (via the Tab key) from the keyboard.
  • You can now see the target of the link when you click on it, without having to open the inspector.
  • The team also expanded TemplateData: You can now add a parameter type  "date" for dates and times in the ISO 8601 format, and  "boolean" for values which are true or false. Also, templates that redirect to other templates (like {{citeweb}}{{cite web}}) now get the TemplateData of their target (bug 50964). You can test TemplateData by editing mw:Template:Sandbox/doc.
  • Category: and File: pages now display their contents correctly after saving an edit (bug 65349, bug 64239)
  • They have also improved reference editing: You should no longer be able to add empty citations with VisualEditor (bug 64715), as with references. When you edit a reference, you can now empty it and click the "use an existing reference" button to replace it with another reference instead. 
  • It is now possible to edit inline images with VisualEditor. Remember that inline images cannot display captions, so existing captions get removed. Many other bugs related to images were also fixed.
  • You can now add and edit {{DISPLAYTITLE}} and __DISAMBIG__ in the "Page options" menu, rounding out the full set of page options currently planned.
  • The tool to insert special characters is now wider and simpler.

Looking ahead[edit]

The VisualEditor team has posted a draft of their goals for the next fiscal year. You can read them and suggest changes on MediaWiki.org.

The team posts details about planned work on VisualEditor's roadmap. You will soon be able to drag-and-drop text as well as images. If you drag an image to a new place, it won't let you place it in the middle of a paragraph. All dialog boxes and windows will be simplified based on user testing and feedback. The VisualEditor team plans to add autofill features for citations. Your ideas about making referencing quick and easy are still wanted. Support for upright image sizes is being developed. The designers are also working on support for viewing and editing hidden HTML comments and adding rows and columns to tables.

Supporting your wiki[edit]

Please read VisualEditor/Citation tool for information on configuring the new citation template menu, labeled "Cite". This menu will not appear unless it has been configured on your wiki.

If you speak a language other than English, we need your help with translating the user guide. The guide is out of date or incomplete for many languages, and what's on your wiki may not be the most recent translation. Please contact me if you need help getting started with translation work on MediaWiki.org.

VisualEditor can be made available to most non-Wikipedia projects. If your community would like to test VisualEditor, please contact product manager James Forrester or file an enhancement request in Bugzilla.

Please share your questions, suggestions, or problems by posting a note at mw:VisualEditor/Feedback or by joining the office hours on Saturday, 19 July 2014 at 21:00 UTC (daytime for the Americas and Pacific Islands) or on Thursday, 14 August 2014 at 9:00 UTC (daytime for Europe, Middle East, Asia).

user name[edit]

Hello, if at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/I'm in Love with My Car New York Brad beleives my username is in violation, why didn't he tell me directly? He just mentioned it there to make my deletion look bad? I+delete+things+alot (talk) 06:44, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

@I+delete+things+alot: Newyorkbrad's intentions probably weren't to attack you personally. Most people add comments in an attempt to contribute positively to the discussion. In the deletion process, we do sometimes see editors who make frivolous nominations, and your username might make you look like one of those editors. One possibility is that he probably thought that since you would be monitoring the discussion, you would see the comment, and there would be no need to leave the same message on your talk page—ultimately saving time (this may not be the case, as I am not Newyorkbrad). Did his remark harm your case? Maybe. But keep in mind that disputes occur all the time on Wikipedia, and editors will usually look for all of the information that is available. If something is irrelevant it will usually be dismissed.
You are not in trouble. Your nomination wasn't necessarily "bad"; rather, it was unsuccessful. Some of our more experienced editors still make unsuccessful deletion nominations. It's a part of building the encyclopedia. It would be advisable, however, to request a username change, since some editors may get a bad first impression by simply looking at your username, thus putting you at an inherent disadvantage when editing the encyclopedia. Best, Mz7 (talk) 15:23, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
I+delete+things+alot:I assumed that having nominated an article for deletion, you would be keeping an eye on the discussion and would therefore see my comment at the time. I also linked your username, which should have triggered an alert notification at the time; I'm not sure why you didn't get it, if you didn't. Beyond that, I agree with Mz7's comments here. Regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 17:45, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Cng AfDs[edit]

Hi. When closing AfDs as 'redirect' please remember to add the appropriate 'R from...' template, in particular for schools: {{R from school}} to the redirect page so that it automatically adds the appropriate message and populates the school redirect cat. Thanks. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 08:03, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

@Kudpung: Oh yes! Thank you for the reminder! —Mz7 (talk) 16:04, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Page curation[edit]

What is the reason for unreviewing it? Kges1901 (talk) 20:53, 2 July 2014 (UTC)Kges1901

@Kges1901: Hi. Firstly, I thought that the article wasn't written in a neutral point of view. It reads somewhat like an advertisement. I unreviewed it primarily so another user could check the notability of the subject, and possibly nominate it for deletion. It appears it has now been nominated for speedy deletion under multiple criteria (blatant advertising and no claim of significance) by MrX. There was absolutely nothing wrong with your review; I just thought it needed further checking for issues. Thanks for your question. Mz7 (talk) 21:00, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
