GA status[edit]

Nergaal, I would happily nominate those two articles for GA status but you would have to do the review because I am currently busy. Jessy (talk) (contribs) • 21:27, April 2, 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited European nations at the FIFA World Cup, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Valentin Ivanov (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.

Stop icon

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. --John (talk) 17:36, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 June newsletter[edit]

After an extremely close race, Round 3 is over. 244 points secured a place in Round 4, which is comparable to previous years- 321 was required in 2013, while 243 points were needed in 2012. Pool C's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Scotland Casliber (submissions) finished second overall, claiming three featured articles, including the high-importance Grus (constellation). Third place was Pool B's , whose contributions included featured articles Russian battleship Poltava (1894) and Russian battleship Peresvet. Pool C saw the highest number of participants advance, with six out of eight making it to the next round.

The round saw this year's first featured portal, with Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to Florida 12george1 (submissions) and the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This means that all content types have been claimed this year. Other contributions of note this round include a featured topic on Maya Angelou's autobiographies from Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions).

The judges would like to remind participants to update submission pages promptly. This means that content can be checked, and allows those following the competition (including those participating) to keep track of scores effectively. This round has seen discussion about various aspects of the WikiCup's rules and procedures. Those interested in the competition can be assured that formal discussions about how next year's competition will work will be opened shortly, and all are welcome to voice their views then. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

World Cup goalscorers[edit]

Thanks for the thanks. But could you please recheck the lists of who scored how many? For example Davor Šuker was the 1998 top scorer with 6 goals, but you have omitted him from the now-hidden rows in the first table, though he does appear in the second one (rightly). --Theurgist (talk) 07:47, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

That's why I have that section hidden. I will try to make sure it is complete once the WC is over. Nergaal (talk) 08:37, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Meissen-teacup pinkrose01.jpg This is just to let you know that I appreciate your reviews. I understand your position, and value the time you took to analyze the article. It's unfortunate that we have yet to agree, but I'm sure at some point we will. Best wishes.-- MarshalN20 Talk 13:55, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Rebuilding Period 1[edit]

I sip some coffee as I write this, saddened by how some people are bulldozing through the FTRC of the period 1 elements even though you and I strongly oppose. However, I would like your opinions on how to rebuild the individual period articles. You see, just as the period 2 and 3 elements are often talked about in textbooks, so are the other periods intensively studied in academic articles. Don't worry. I am not as deletionist as you think. Parcly Taxel 06:40, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

I was not referring to you, but to the tag-team that has spent the last 2 or 3 years filling the talkpage at wp:elem with interminable, then moved to impose their narrow opinions on the articles without really focusing on article improvement. And when consensus was built agains them, they did not even bother doing a simple page move but continued to pile with their crap. I have removed all elem pages from my watchlist and I am not looking forward to get back onto working on them only to have my work demolished. Nergaal (talk) 10:28, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
