GA review of Robin Raphel article
@Sasuke Sarutobi: Thank you for your comments. I am pleased to see that the review will continue. If there is anything I can do to support, please let me know. I think the recent events, while troubling for the subject of the article, should be wrapped into the article during the course of the review to insure completeness. While the required edits of course impact one of the Good Article criteria (stability), the other side of that coin is that events don't know when a reviewer is going to start or finish a GA nomination. Imagine if the information was that she had won a Nobel Prize or something. Same criteria violated but for positive news would make the process by which we bring articles to GA status somewhat confused. So I am happy with your decision to proceed. Many thanks, --Mansoor Ijaz (talk) 09:16, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
- Thank you for your reply, @Mansoor Ijaz:, and thank you for your patience. After discussion with another reviewer, it seems that I was taking too strict an interpretation of the stability criterion - essentially, it's not about frequent change, but more to do with things like edit warring between primary contributors. I've posted some further notes on the re-opened GA review page, and will be making a fresh review, but hopefully my existing comments will prove helpful in the meantime. — Sasuke Sarutobi (talk) 09:40, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
First & foremost, bravo re your recent new article.
Secondly, in User:Sasuke_Sarutobi#Languages (on an otherwise splendid page), you have "articles (likely in my". Now, I understand that the use of 'likely' there is fine in US English, but to a BR EN-speaker I'm afraid it grates. We'd always prefix likely (as an adverb) with 'most' or 'very' - otherwise we'd replace 'likely' with 'probably'.
Now, as the latter, I think, grates on neither side of the pond, would you consider such an amendment?
- Thank you, and changed. To be honest, I needed to re-write some of that section, as I've not being giving Polish much attention of late (more German and Italian). I'm British myself, but I have a tendency to mess with flow and word dropping, especially when punctuation can facilitate, and sometimes in quite an abrupt way - especially with parentheses of various kinds - and mix and match American and British usage a fair bit (such as the infamous 'Oxford comma', and my rather arbitrary usage of hyphenation).
- My over-lengthy rationalisation aside, fixed, thank you for pointing that out. — Sasuke Sarutobi (talk) 14:29, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 is just around the corner...
Hello everyone, and may we wish you all a happy holiday season. As you will probably already know, the 2015 WikiCup begins in the new year; there is still time to sign up. We have a few important announcements concerning the future of the WikiCup.
- We would like to announce that Josh (J Milburn) and Ed (The ed17), who have been WikiCup judges since 2009 and 2010 respectively, are stepping down. This decision has been made for a number of reasons, but the main one is time. Both Josh and Ed have found that, over the previous year, they have been unable to devote the time necessary to the WikiCup, and it is not likely that they will be able to do this in the near future. Furthermore, new people at the helm can only help to invigorate the WikiCup and keep it dynamic. Josh and Ed will still be around, and will likely be participating in the Cup this following year as competitors, which is where both started out.
- In a similar vein, we hope you will all join us in welcoming Jason (Sturmvogel 66) and Christine (Figureskatingfan), who are joining Brian (Miyagawa) to form the 2015 WikiCup judging team. Jason is a WikiCup veteran, having won in 2010 and finishing in fifth this year. Christine has participated in two WikiCups, reaching the semi-finals in both, and is responsible for the GA Cup, which she now co-runs.
- The discussions/polls concerning the next competition's rules will be closed soon, and rules changes will be made clear on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Scoring and talk pages. While it may be impossible to please everyone, the judges will make every effort to ensure that the new rules are both fair and in the best interests of the competition, which is, first and foremost, about improving Wikipedia.
If you have any questions or concerns, the judges can be reached on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, on their talk pages, or by email. We hope you will all join us in trying to make the 2015 WikiCup the most productive and enjoyable yet. You are receiving this message because you are listed on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Voting for the Military historian and Military newcomer of the year now open!
Nominations for the military historian of the year and military newcomer of the year have now closed, and voting for the candidates has officially opened. All project members are invited to cast there votes for the Military historian and Military newcomer of the year candidates before the elections close at 23:59 December 21st. For the coordinators, TomStar81
Round one of the 2015 WikiCup has begun! So far we've had around 80 signups, which close on February 5. If you have not already signed up and want to do so, then you can add your name here. There have been changes to to several of the points scores for various categories, and the addition of Peer Reviews for the first time. These will work in the same manner as Good Article Reviews, and all of the changes are summarised here.
Remember that only the top 64 scoring competitors will make it through to the second round, and one of the new changes this year is that all scores must be claimed within two weeks of an article's promotion or appearance, so don't forget to add them to your submissions pages! If you are concerned that your nomination will not receive the necessary reviews, and you hope to get it promoted before the end of the round, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. However, please remember to continue to offer reviews at GAN, FAC and all the other pages that require them to prevent any backlogs which could otherwise be caused by the Cup. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup and the judges are reachable on their talk pages. Good luck!
