SP[edit]

Would you be interested in getting back into Signposting? Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 18:52, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

@The ed17: I'm not much of a journalist, and I'm unlikely to have much spare time in a few months from now, so I can't see myself rejoining it as a permanent writer. I'm always happy to do the odd article here and there, though, if you ever need it. Rcsprinter123 (speak) @ 10:05, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Well, at the least, I'd appreciate any help you can give over the next couple weeks. Please see this lovely development. Could you perhaps write blurbs for "featured content"? It doesn't take much time and only requires a little wit, not journalism. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 05:51, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
@The ed17: I guess I could have a go at featured content. I sent Adam Cuerden an email explaining. Rcsprinter123 (lecture) @ 09:29, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Hey,I haven't heard from either of you, so I just wanted to quickly see how this is working out. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 05:35, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
@The ed17: Well, Adam never replied to me, and SchroCat appears to have made a start on FC for this week. So, I don't really know how I can help. Rcsprinter123 (push) @ 07:34, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Well, that's surprising. I apologize. Are you interested in starting to contribute next week? All that's required is taking the articles listed at WP:GO (make sure you have the right week) and summarize them, sometimes in humorous form, other times with interesting facts, perhaps with an opinion from the nominator in the FAC. We can use any help you're willing to give! Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 18:44, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
@The ed17: Sure. I've left a note in the Newsroom announcing my intention to go to FC next week. Rcsprinter123 (shout) @ 20:41, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! I've left a quick reply there for you. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 21:09, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

US Counties[edit]

Why do some county maps in some states that you created don't have county subdivisions/townships unlike other county maps, which shows lines for each county subdivision? For example, the county maps in Delaware and Kentucky don't have county subdivision lines, but Wisconsin and New York still shows them. MuppetHammer26II (talk) 06:21, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

It depends on whether the state uses its Minor Civil Divisions as a level of local government, or not. In states such as New York, Wisconsin, and in New England, town(ship)s are important subdivisions even though they are unincorporated. However, in most states, the government steps directly from county to municipality, meaning that I don't need to draw any townships on. Rcsprinter123 (message) @ 07:28, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

The Signpost: 27 August 2014[edit]

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.
