AFC Backlog[edit]

Articles for Creation urgently needs YOUR help!

Articles for Creation is desperately short of reviewers! We are looking for urgent help, from experienced editors, in reviewing submissions in the pending submissions queue. Currently there are 762 submissions waiting to be reviewed and many help requests at our Help Desk.

Do you have what it takes?
  1. Are you familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines?
  2. Do you know what Wikipedia is and is not?
  3. Do you have a working knowledge of the Manual of Style, particularly article naming conventions?
  4. Are you autoconfirmed?
  5. Can you review submissions based on their individual merits?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then please read the reviewing instructions and donate a little of your time to helping tackle the backlog. You might wish to add {{AFC status}} or {{AfC Defcon}} to your userpage, which will alert you to the number of open submissions.

PS: we have a great AFC helper script at User:Timotheus Canens/afchelper4.js which helps in reviewing in just few edits easily!

We would greatly appreciate your help. Currently, only a small handful of users are reviewing articles. Any help, even if it's just 2 or 3 reviews, it would be extremely beneficial.
On behalf of the Articles for Creation project,
TheSpecialUser TSU

Merry Christmas![edit]

Important Notice: Your 2013 Arbitration Committee Election vote[edit]

Greetings. Because you have already cast a vote for the 2013 Arbitration Committee Elections, I regret to inform you that due to a misconfiguration of the SecurePoll we've been forced to strike all votes and reset voting. This notice is to inform you that you will need to vote again if you want to be counted in the poll. The new poll is located at this link. You do not have to perform any additional actions other than voting again. If you have any questions, please direct them at the election commissioners. --For the Election Commissioners, v/r, TParis

Your concerns with Technical 13[edit]

Thank you for giving voice to your concern with Technical 13's ability to evaluate consensus and respect the will of the community. As you can see on their talk page, this is not the first time that they have adopted a minority viewpoint and attempted to make it fiat policy. I would like to draw your attention to Wikipedia_talk:AFC#AFC_helper_script and T13's responses there. I do admit that I was less than cordial with T13, but as you noted on his talk page, repeating the same refuted points does not destroy a consensus. Hasteur (talk) 17:07, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Martin, per your suggestion on Technical 13's talk page, I do not think that it is a protracted problem across all aspects of their editing, just acting on requests where they have a strong opinion about how something should be implemented. As per the linked section regarding the Template Editor user right, the location to petition for removal is AN/I. Based on Technical 13's previous stubbornness, I feel that conducting a RFC/U would be nothing but a purely academic exercise as they have demonstrated that once they decide something should be done a specific way, no amount of debate short of an uninvolved admin enforcing consensus will make them change their mind. As it has been demonstrated, RFC/U has devolved from a useful tool to resolve disputes to an opportunity to air all the dirty laundry the accused may have ever accumulated.

Stephanie Adams article[edit]

Thanks for stopping by to handle the edit request. The statement and Voo source on Adams' ancestry that was removed from the article was fine. You can find it in the history. It was properly sourced and there are also additional sources to support the statement. Please add the information back. In addition, please add the Politics of Desire source as additional support for the statement on her ancestry as African American. I believe it's already used in the article, so it would be helpful if you named it. See here: Racialized Politics of Desire in Personal Ads, retrieved 4 June 2014  According to an editor in the discussion, the duplicate birth date and place info was fairly standard, so please add that back, too. I'd also be in favor of adding the information presented by another editor on her ownership of two companies. Do you want a paragraph written up on that? Pkeets (talk) 15:16, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

It says on the page that my edit request has been answered, but the Voo sources and information on her heritage was not added back. Do I need to put in another edit request for that? Pkeets (talk) 23:30, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Good day Martin.[edit]

I think you know why I am here. Which one of Wikipedia:Template editor#REVOKE does "various concerns over template-editing" fall under? — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 15:09, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

  • And what exactly are those concerns, so I may address them. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 15:12, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
I don't need to codify it. The reasons are clear. Take it to ANI for review, if you wish. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 15:12, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Notice from Technical 13[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is Template Editor User:Technical 13. Thank you. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 17:47, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Template:SPI archive notice[edit]

Hello Martin, I just saw that this template and all associated pages have been renamed without any discussion that I can find. Please notify Amalthea of this change. His bot maintains the list of active cases, and if someone decides to use the new name for the template, the bot will likely not be able to handle it. Thanks ​—DoRD (talk)​ 12:53, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Okay, if it's a problem (or if you oppose the move for any other reason) I will revert. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 12:57, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
This particular rename will not affect the bot. Thanks everyone, Amalthea 13:16, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, Amalthea. And never mind, Martin - I tend to be a bit protective about anything to do with SPI templates as I've seen the bot go off the rails for seemingly inexplicable reasons in the past. Cheers ​—DoRD (talk)​ 13:46, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
