Disambiguation link notification for April 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited DeCSS haiku, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hacker (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.

Hi. I saw that you're having trouble accessing JSTOR. Let me know what articles you need and I'll send you copies of them. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 17:45, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Just sent them to you. Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 02:26, 19 April 2014 (UTC)


Cześć Piotrus, Michał Słaby się kłani. I'm very impressed by your work and thank you for your commitment to this endeavor. You seem very experienced with it and though I have long navigated Wikipedia as an end user, I am new to Wikipedia as a contributor and seek your advice. Mianowicie, jak odwiedziłem Babkę w Polsce w ubiegłym roku, miałem okazję ją nakręcić jak opowiadała swoją historię w Kresach i tak dalej. Zrobiłem z tego film, skorzystając podczas editingu z wielu żródeł na Wikipedia. Zauważyłem że było dużo na temat historii polski w języku angielskim ale że te artykuły nie były zawsze w najlepszy stanie. Postanowiłem to poprawić ale wówczas oczywiście byłem zbyt zajęty z innymi tematami. Skoro film jest prawie skończony i mam trochę więcej czasu na to, założyłem sobie konto na Wikipedia. Zacząłem poprawiać stronę na temat miasta Trembowli, postanowiając dodać link do kawałku filmu gdzie właśnie Babka opisuje to miasto. Problem w tym oczywiście że to moja Babka w moim filmie na mojej stronie gdzie ja staram się sprzedać sztukę. Chcę pomóc jak mogę w celach Wikipedii, ale nagle się obawiam że cokolwiek bym zmienił na lepsze, to co najbardziej chciałbym dodać jest zamieszane z konfliktem interesu. Co byś radził na ten temat?

Entry for Network of International Business Schools[edit]

Hello, and thank you for your ongoing contribution efforts to Wikipedia. While I appreciate that notability is a concern for any encyclopedic repository of information, I object to the proposed deletion of the entry or Network of International Business Schools for the following reasons:

-organization is worldwide in scope -has existed for over 20 years -has meaningful operations, including academic accreditation -similar associations/organizations have entries

The evidence provided in support of the rationale for deletion is insignificant media coverage. I will endeavour to address this through improvements to the article, particularly addition of suitable references. By nature, coverage of the organization is often within publications within the university realm, and thus not always well-indexed. Moreover, the organization itself is not of a nature that strives for media coverage but, rather, is merely 'known' among schools of business, making a Wikipedia entry particularly useful.

Kind regards,

ProfessorBiz (talk) 10:22, 20 April 2014 (UTC)ProfessorBiz

Your guidance in this regard is appreciated. I am reviewing the relevant Wikipedia pages regarding notability, and will endeavour to address concerns raised, using sources that specifically meet the criteria indicated in these pages. I agree that standards are important, and look forward to enhancing the credibility and usefulness of this and other Wikipedia entries.

The Signpost: 23 April 2014[edit]

Mova nanova[edit]

First of all, the Mova Nanova initiative gains its due notability by the fact that it reflects an important aspect of the cultural life of the present day Belarus touching upon the vulnerable issue of the language situation in the country. • Given that the initiative is voluntary and has gained traction among people of different background, then spread to almost all regional centres, still on a voluntary basis, and is acclaimed and supported by notable cultural personalities and famous people, it demonstrates the shift in the attitude of common people towards the Belarusian language, which image has long been “disfigured”. In this case the article has its value for the English-speaking readers by giving the information on the cultural and linguistic sides of Belarusian life, and at the same time demonstrating the social topicality of the issue. • The article represents the translation of the Belarusian version of Wikipedia and supplements the scarce information about Belarus in its English version, helping the English-speaking readership give a more clear view of the country and explaining some of the questions like “Why isn’t Belarusian the language that you can hear on the streets while in Belarus?” and “What is the situation like these days?”, and etc. • For a long time the Belarusian language has been unjustly considered to be the language of peasants and the illiterate, even in the not too distant 90s of the XXth century. This page demonstrates the issues that the Belarusian-speaking minority (and those aspiring to become Belarusian-speaking) is confronted with, and how these issues are tackled with in the present day context, which is again the reflection of the Belarusian cultural aspects. This point is referenced by the figures of the latest census and UNESCO statistics. • The page also arises the problem of the linguistic disproportion of Russian and Belarusian in the bilingual environment on the territory of Belarus (de jure) that has long held true, at certain historical points going to extremes with adverse anti-Belarusian propaganda and targeted governmental actions aimed at its elimination. The page offers the information for further familiarization with by linking to the page about the Belarusian language. • Finally, the information on this page is backed by the references from independent nation-wide online sources of information and news portals (TUT.BY, Belsat TV, The limited quantity of such references can be explained by the fact that usually negative events are given higher priority on the newsworthy scale and get more media coverage, whereas cultural events are given a smaller share of press attention in flagship publications, and are often reprinted from the leading information sources by other minor news organizations. (Moreover, please, give due attention to the fact that the page deals with the de facto linguistic minority, which reduces the press coverage of this activity even more, which doesn’t lessen its notability though). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Умецкі Максім (talkcontribs) 17:19, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

VisualEditor newsletter—April 2014[edit]

Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor team has mostly worked on performance improvements, image settings, and preparation for a simplified citation template tool in its own menu.

  • In an oft-requested improvement, VisualEditor now displays red links (links to non-existent pages) in the proper color. Links to sister projects and external URLs are still the same blue as local links.
  • You can now open templates by double-clicking them or by selecting them and pressing   Return.  This also works for references, images, galleries, mathematical equations, and other "nodes".
  • VisualEditor has been disabled for pages that were created as translations of other pages using the Translate extension (common at Meta and If a page has been marked for translation, you will see a warning if you try to edit it using VisualEditor.
  • When you try to edit protected pages with VisualEditor, the full protection notice and most recent log entry are displayed. Blocked users see the standard message for blocked users.
  • The developers fixed a bug that caused links on sub-pages to point to the wrong location.
  • The size-changing controls in the advanced settings section of the media or image dialog were simplified further. VisualEditor's media dialog supports more image display styles, like borderless images.
  • If there is not enough space on your screen to display all of the tabs (for instance, if your browser window is too narrow), the second edit tab will now fold into the drop-down menu (where the "Move" item is currently housed). On the English Wikipedia, this moves the "Edit beta" tab into the menu; on most projects, it moves the "Edit source" tab. This is only enabled in the default Vector skin, not for Monobook users. See this image for an example showing the "Edit source" and "View history" tabs after they moved into the drop-down menu.
  • After community requests, VisualEditor has been deployed as an opt-in feature at Meta and on the French Wikinews.
The drop-down menu is on the right, next to the search box.

Looking ahead:  A new, locally controlled menu of citation templates will put citations immediately in front of users. You will soon be able to see the Table of Contents while editing. Support for upright image sizes (preferred for accessibility) is being developed. In-line language setting (dir="rtl") will be offered as a Beta Feature soon. Looking further out, the developers are also working on support for viewing and editing hidden HTML comments. It will be possible to upload images to Commons from inside VisualEditor.

If you have questions or suggestions for future improvements, or if you encounter problems, please let everyone know by posting a note at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback or by joining the office hours on Monday, 19 May 2014 at 18:00 UTC. If you'd like to get this on your own page, subscribe at Wikipedia:VisualEditor#Newsletter for English Wikipedia only or at meta:VisualEditor/Newsletter for any project. Thank you!
