JuliaSchwenk (talk) 13:11, 7 August 2014 (UTC)be quiet! article[edit]

Dear Piotrus, I added much more links from independent and reliable sources. On the talk page you can find the argumentation about why this article meets the criteria. I hope you can cancel the proposition for delition of the article. Let me know if there is anything I can do or improve. Thanks a lot!

Thanks for The Signpost[edit]

I read your contribution "Wikipedia from the perspective of PR and marketing" in The Signpost. It got me motivated to do something. Thanks. — Brianhe (talk) 22:53, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Wladyslaw IV. Wasa[edit]

Hello Piotrus,

I spent my morning, an hour of which I usually spend on browsing through the Wiki main pages of "my" languages, dabbling in editing the W article of which I found you to be the main contributor (through its history, though I failed to find it in your publications listings - which is not a criticism of your listings, but rather evidence of the tomatoes sometimes accumulating on my eyes).

On the article talk page, I left some comments, which for your convenience I also transferred here:

Contentiously vs contentedly

Though in the next paragraph we learn that the guy had a short temper, I somehow think that the author was trying here to convey that W died contentedly rather than contentiously, seeing that he had time to make his last will and receive sacraments... Anybody out there who could and would care to contribute the historical facts?

Meanwhile my apologies to the authors and the public for any deteriorations I might have made in my inept efforts at improvement dabbling in a foreign language. I hope that soon a competent native speaker will come out to give this really good article the last linguistic polish... Terminally uncool (talk) 10:19, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Meanwhile my respects. It is a pleasure and honour to meet you. Browsing through your user pages both thrilled and terrified me... --Terminally uncool (talk) 13:32, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Your solution/clarification seems fine to me! --Terminally uncool (talk) 10:50, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Scale (social sciences), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Typology. 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.

thanks for reviewing our AfC research for the Signpost![edit]

Hey Pitor,

Thanks for the thoughtful review!

Since you asked... (and here in public for transparency b/c I'm one of the authors of this paper), a few thoughts/comments:

  • The G13 backlog happened because G13 is new. The best person to ask about that is probably User:Anne_Delong. (AfC backlog is a different thing.)
  • "[despite clearly being notable] an article about an Emmy-award winning TV show from the 1980's was twice declined at AfC, before finally being published 15 months after the draft was started". At the time it was first submitted this didn't say it won the Emmy. The show is this one: Free_to_Be..._A_Family. There are some slides on that at pages 111-115 of our OpenSym slides. We didn't state that this was "clearly notable": my view is rather that its notability *becomes* clear once you know enough about it. It was a research project to find this info since this was pre-Web; if that had been asserted, it would have passed AfC!
  • Newbies do complain about rejections, too.
  • Newcomers sometimes do "drive by contribution"; they don't always come back.

Hope that helps, and feel free to ignore my kibbitzing Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 13:53, 28 August 2014 (UTC)


I've noticed your contributions across the project and specifically at AfD; and was wondering whether you'd wish to apply for an RfA. I'd be more than pleased to nominate you, in case you do consider it. Best regards. Wifione Message 16:52, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 August newsletter[edit]

The final of the 2014 WikiCup begins in a few short minutes! Our eight finalists are listed below, along with their placement in Round 4:

  1. Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), a WikiCup newcomer, finished top of Pool A and was the round's highest scorer. Godot is a featured picture specialist, claiming large numbers of points due to high-quality scans of historical documents, especially banknotes.
  2. Scotland Casliber (submissions) is a WikiCup veteran, having been a finalist every year since 2010. In the semi-final, he was Pool B's highest scorer. Cas's points primarily come from articles on the natural sciences.
  3. Nepal Czar (submissions) was Pool A's runner-up. Czar's points come mostly from content related to independent video games, including both articles and topics.
  4. Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) was Pool B's runner-up. Another featured picture specialist, many of Adam's points come from the restoration of historical media. He has been a WikiCup finalist twice before.
  5. Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) won the WikiCup in 2012 and 2013, and enters this final as the first wildcard. She focuses on biology-related articles, and has worked on several high-importance articles.
  6. Florida 12george1 (submissions) is the second wildcard. George's points come primarily from meteorology-related articles. This year and last year, George was the first person in the competition to score.
  7. Colorado Sturmvogel 66 (submissions), the third wildcard, was the 2010 champion and a finalist last year. His writes mostly on military history, especially naval history.
  8. Canada Bloom6132 (submissions), the fourth and final wildcard, has participated in previous WikiCups, but not reached any finals. Bloom's points are mostly thanks to did you knows, featured lists and good articles related to sport and national symbols.

We say goodbye to this year's semi-finalists. Herm Matty.007 (submissions), Ohio ThaddeusB (submissions), United States WikiRedactor (submissions), Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), Greece Yellow Evan (submissions), Portugal Prism (submissions) and Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) have all performed well to reach this stage of the competition, and we hope they will all be joining us again next year.

There are two upcoming competitions unrelated to the WikiCup which may be of interest to those who receive this newsletter. The Stub Contest will run through September, and revolves around expanding stub articles, especially high-importance or old stubs. In addition, a proposal has been made for a new competition, the GA Cup, which the organisers plan to run next year. This competition is based on the WikiCup and aims to reduce the good article review backlog.

There is now a thread for brainstorming on how next year's WikiCup competition should work. Please come along and share your thoughts- What works? What doesn't work? What needs changing? Signups for next year's competition will be open soon; we will be in touch. If, at this stage of the competition, you are keen to help the with the WikiCup, please do what you can to participate in review processes. Our finalists will find things much easier if the backlogs at good article candidates, featured article candidates, featured picture candidates and the rest are kept at a minimum. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

DYK for Lem (satellite)[edit]

Witaj, napiszę po polsku, choć jeśli to niezbędne, oczywiście mogę też po angielsku. Zrozumiałem, że uznałeś mój art. Lem (satellite): za interesujący i warty nominowania do rubryki DYK. To niezmiernie motywujące. Proszę Cię o dalsze wskazówki dotyczące umieszczenia hasła w rubryce DYK. Z pozdrowieniami, LukaszKatlewa (talk) 08:49, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Dzięki za zachętę i pomoc. Może jednak nie będzie to dobrze, jeśli to ja zgłoszę, może lepiej by zgłosił to ktoś inny (Ty?). Mogę podrzucić propozycje pytań:

hook = … that ’’’Lem’’’ started his stellar observations before ’’’Heweliusz’’’ ‘’(pictured)’’?

ALT1 =

… that ’’’Lem’’’ was launched before ’’’Heweliusz’’’ ‘’(pictured)’’?

ALT2 =

… what is the difference between ’’’Lem’’’ and ’’’Heweliusz’’’ ‘’(pictured)’’?

ALT3 =

… what was the name of the ’’’first Polish scientific satellite’’’ ‘’(pictured)’’?

ALT4 = ... what/why ’’’Lem’’’ can see in blue and ’’’Heweliusz’’’ can see in red ‘’(pictured)’’?
