DYK for Richard Pink
|On 14 May 2013, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Richard Pink, which you created or substantially expanded. The fact was ... that Wing Commander Richard Pink led No. 2 (Indian) Wing during Pink's War, the first independent action of the Royal Air Force, and is the only RAF officer after whom a campaign is named? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Richard Pink. You are welcome to check how many hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, quick check) and it will be added to DYKSTATS if it got over 5,000. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.|
WikiProject Military history coordinator election
Greetings from WikiProject Military history! As a member of the project, you are invited to take part in our annual project coordinator election, which will determine our coordinators for the next twelve months. If you wish to cast a vote, please do so on the election page by 23:59 (UTC) on 28 September! Kirill [talk] 17:58, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
- Heh, remember don't take it too seriously. Just a bit of fun. Cheers, --Sp33dyphil ©hatontributions 12:23, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
Hi, I didn't realise, thank you for your message. I thought it best for us to edit it ourselves as there was very little information, sorry if I broke the rules it wasn't intentional. The main thing I wanted to do was to add our websites/social media as links and correct that Amerang is not part of the modelzone group. Modelzone was part of the Amerang group and a part we didn't buy. --Ripmax (talk) 14:50, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
- Hi, @Ripmax, thank you for getting back to me! And not to worry; as I said, it's all about accurate information here. I'm afraid that Wikipedia generally doesn't have links to social media, just the company's homepage.
- The main problem with the article was that a lot of the wording promoted the company in a way that is not impartial enough; so for instance, wording that would be fine in marketing copy such as "one of the UK's leading" may be considered biased in Wikipedia (see this section on words that may introduce bias for some other examples). As for the citation about Amerang; around the time that Modelzone went into administration and Amerang was bought by Ripmax, media cited that Amerang was part of the Modelzone Group (such as here), and it was from them that Amerang was bought. I can see now that the way that it is worded is not especially clear, so I will work on including it back into the article along with some of the other information you presented.
- In the meantime, I would suggest changing your account name to something not connected with Ripmax and declaring your connection to Ripmax on your userpage. And please, do have a look at some other articles on Wikipedia to see if there is anything else you want to help with - we always can do with new editors! — Sasuke Sarutobi (talk) 17:32, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Greetings, Sasuke Sarutobi. As you have probably heard, your mentor, Khazar2, has had to retire from Wikipedia. Like everyone in the GA community, I'm sad to see him gone. I am also an experienced GA reviewer; If you would like further assistance with Talk:Random Access Memories/GA1 or any other review, feel free to ask, and I'd be willing to assist. All the best, – Quadell (talk) 16:06, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
- Thank you for letting me know; I wasn't aware of it before you mentioned, but it is a real shock and sad to see. And thank you very much for your offer of assistance. To be perfectly honest, I have recently started a new job, so am not sure how much time I can continue to dedicate to the project (which I think is part of the reason that the GA on Random Access Memories dragged on for so long), but I shall try and continue what involvement I can. I'll be looking over things properly on the weekend and getting things straightened out. — Sasuke Sarutobi (talk) 11:14, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
- I understand. The only open issue is that the GAN at Talk:Random Access Memories/GA1 is still open. Did you want to close it as passing, or close it as failing, or leave it open and work at it some more, or what? – Quadell (talk) 15:05, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
|Good Article Recruitment Barnstar|
|I'm sorry you didn't receive this earlier, but it is quite clear that you understand the GA criteria have performed several successful reviews. I'm happy to graduate you from the GA recruitment program. Thanks for all you do for Wikipedia, – Quadell (talk) 17:58, 7 January 2014 (UTC)|
Hi. Would you be interested in voicing your support (or oppose/comment) at the FAC page for the article Of Human Feelings? If not, feel free to ignore this message. Dan56 (talk) 18:12, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
A barnstar for you!
|The Teamwork Barnstar|
|Congratulations on your excellent review of Random Access Memories! Did you know that this article gets over 1,275,000 pageviews per year? That means the nominator is eligible for a Wikipedia:Million Award! Thanks for doing your part to make sure Wikipedia's most-viewed articles are of the highest quality. – Quadell (talk) 22:36, 13 December 2013 (UTC)|
- Thank you, and thank you very much for your support after Khazar's retirement! — Sasuke Sarutobi (talk) 20:27, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

- Fantastic, thank you very much! I never would have thought of checking Google Scholar. — Sasuke Sarutobi (talk) 09:06, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
Welcome to the 2014 WikiCup!
Hello Sasuke Sarutobi, and welcome to the 2014 WikiCup! Your submission page can be found here. The competition will begin at midnight tonight (UTC). There have been a few small changes from last year; the rules can be read in full at Wikipedia:WikiCup/Scoring, and the page also includes a summary of changes. One important rule to remember is that only content on which you have completed significant work, and nominated, in 2014 is eligible for points in the competition- the judges will be checking! As ever, this year's competition includes some younger editors. If you are a younger editor, you are certainly welcome, but we have written an advice page at Wikipedia:WikiCup/Advice for younger editors for you. Please do take a look. Any questions should be directed to one of the judges, or left on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup. Signups will close at the end of January, and the first round will end on 26 February; the 64 highest scorers at that time will make it to round 2. Good luck!

I've boldly gone and put the Camouflage template in the article, with the Marder image, and I've prototyped the table in a form that might be more useful in the article itself (there seems no reason to do this offline really). Most of the rows are currently blank - maybe you can fill some of them. All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk) 16:23, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
- Thank you for that! I'll have a look into the military applications regarding other wavelengths. — Sasuke Sarutobi (talk) 13:42, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
Hello Sasuke Sarutobi! I've seen you've started reviewing Ian McKellen for GA criteria, the nominator has also nominated Jennifer Lopez for GA, in which I'd reviewed, however some editors think the person who nominated the article has done nothing towards the article. Just a little heads up! Enjoy the WikiCup! ///EuroCarGT 02:41, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
- Thanks for the heads up! I had noticed that the nominator hadn't appeared in recent edits at least, but didn't know about the contributors tool until I saw it in use on your GA review of Jennifer Lopez. He has been working in response to the review I've posted, so he does appear to be fairly aware of the expectation that a nominator should work in response to articles (although I do feel that the expectation on the nominator to have contributed significantly to the article could perhaps do with more clarification - I made the same mistake on my first nomination, but had time to go back and start copy-editing and bringing the article up to the criteria). I've also messaged MarnetteD, who is the highest contributor to Ian McKellen to get a contributor's input, as well as Jezhotwells, the last GA reviewer to the article. — Sasuke Sarutobi (talk) 12:26, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
Hello. just a heads up that I was looking over the Ian McKellen GAN page. I'd love be involved if I can, but I'm new here and not sure the best way to be helpful. I left some comments, if useful. Thanks for tackling the review; I think it's a great candidate. --Morphovariant (talk) 21:51, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
- I saw, thank you! I've already looked at the article and started amending it based on your comments, but feel free to make any changes already discussed. I'll be coming back to it later today, so I'll add my comments in response then. — Sasuke Sarutobi (talk) 09:24, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
The 2014 WikiCup is off to a flying start, with, at time of writing, 138 participants. The is the largest number of participants we have seen since 2010. If you are yet to join the competition, don't worry- the judges have agreed to keep the signups open for a few more days. By a wide margin, our current leader is newcomer Godot13 (submissions), whose set of 14 featured pictures, the first FPs of the competition, was worth 490 points. Here are some more noteworthy scorers:
- 12george1 (submissions) and TropicalAnalystwx13 (submissions) were the first people to score, for the good article Tropical Storm Bret (1981) and its good article review respectively. 12george1 was also the first person to score in 2012 and 2013.
- Sven Manguard (submissions) scored the first ITN points for 2014 North American polar vortex.
- WonderBoy1998 (submissions) scored points for an early good topic, finishing off Wikipedia:Featured topics/She Wolf.
- TheAustinMan (submissions) scored the first bonus points of the competition, for his work on Typhoon Vera.
- Igordebraga (submissions) has scored the highest number of bonus points for a single article, for the high-importance Jurassic Park (film).
Featured articles, featured lists, featured topics and featured portals are yet to play a part in the competition. The judges have removed a number of submissions which were deemed ineligible. Typically, we aim to see work on a project, followed by a nomination, followed by promotion, this year. We apologise for any disappointment caused by our strict enforcement this year; we're aiming to keep the competition as fair as possible.
Wikipedians interested in friendly competition may be interested to take part in The Core Contest; unlike the WikiCup, The Core Contest is not about audited content, but, like the WikiCup, it is about article improvement; specifically, The Core Contest is about contribution to some of Wikipedia's most important article. Of course, any work done for The Core Contest, if it leads to a DYK, GA or FA, can earn WikiCup points.
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!

Ways to improve Energy Networks Association (United Kingdom)
Hi, I'm Wieno. Sasuke Sarutobi, thanks for creating Energy Networks Association (United Kingdom)!
I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. It seems like this article meets notability guidelines but it really ought to have some reliable secondary sources.
The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. Wieno (talk) 07:15, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
And so ends the most competitive first round we have ever seen, with 38 points required to qualify for round 2. Last year, 19 points secured a place; before that, 11 (2012) or 8 (2011) were enough. This is both a blessing and a curse. While it shows the vigourous good health of the competition, it also means that we have already lost many worthy competitors. Our top three scorers were:
- Godot13 (submissions), a WikiCup newcomer whose high-quality scans of rare banknotes represent an unusual, interesting and valuable contribution to Wikipedia. Most of Godot's points this round have come from a large set of pictures used in Treasury Note (1890–91).
- Adam Cuerden (submissions), a WikiCup veteran and a finalist last year, Adam is also a featured picture specialist, focusing on the restoration of historical images. This month's promotions have included a carefully restored set of artist William Russell Flint's work.
- WikiRedactor (submissions), another WikiCup newcomer. WikiRedactor has claimed points for good article reviews and good articles relating to pop music, many of which were awarded bonus points. Articles include Sky Ferreira, Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus and "Wrecking Ball" (Miley Cyrus song).
Other competitors of note include:
- Hahc21 (submissions), who helped take Thirty Flights of Loving through good article candidates and featured article candidates, claiming the first first featured article of the competition.
- Prism (submissions), who claimed the first featured list of the competition with Natalia Kills discography.
- Cwmhiraeth (submissions), who takes the title of the contributor awarded the highest bonus point multiplier (resulting in the highest scoring article) of the competition so far. Her high-importance salamander, now a good article, scored 108 points.
After such a competitive first round, expect the second round to also be fiercely fought. Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 1 but before the start of round 2 can be claimed in round 2, but please do not update your submission page until March (UTC). Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally.

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Rakim you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Wizardman -- Wizardman 17:00, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
The article Rakim you nominated as a good article has failed ; see Talk:Rakim for reasons why the nomination failed. If or when these points have been taken care of, you may apply for a new nomination of the article. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Wizardman -- Wizardman 17:11, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
A quick update as we are half way through round two of this year's competition. WikiCup newcomer Godot13 (submissions) (Pool E) leads, having produced a massive set of featured pictures for Silver certificate (United States), an article also brought to featured list status. Former finalist Adam Cuerden (submissions) (Pool G) is in second, which he owes mostly to his work with historical images, including a number of images from Urania's Mirror, an article also brought to good status. 2010 champion (Pool C) is third overall, thanks to contributions relating to naval history, including the newly featured Japanese battleship Nagato. Cliftonian (submissions), who currently leads Pool A and is sixth overall, takes the title for the highest scoring individual article of the competition so far, with the top importance featured article Ian Smith.
With 26 people having already scored over 100 points, it is likely that well over 100 points will be needed to secure a place in round 3. Recent years have required 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) and 100 (2010). Remember that only 64 will progress to round 3 at the end of April. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page; if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally.

Feedback on a new beta feature called Hovercards
Hi SasukeSarutobi, We are collecting feedback for a new beta feature called 'Hovercards' - https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Beta_Features/Hovercards. Beta features can be turned on using the tab in the top right. It would be great if you could turn the feature on and give us your feedback on the discussion page. Thanks Vibhabamba (talk) 10:11, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Round 3 of the 2014 WikiCup has just begun; 32 competitors remain. Pool G's Adam Cuerden (submissions) was Round 2's highest scorer, with a large number of featured picture credits. In March/April, he restored star charts from Urania's Mirror, lithographs of various warships (such as SMS Gefion) and assorted other historical media. Second overall was Pool E's Godot13 (submissions), whose featured list Silver certificate (United States) contains dozens of scans of banknotes recently promoted to featured picture status. Third was Pool G's ChrisGualtieri (submissions) who has produced a large number of good articles, many, including Falkner Island, on Connecticut-related topics. Other successful participants included Cliftonian (submissions), who saw three articles (including the top-importance Ian Smith) through featured article candidacies, and Caponer (submissions), who saw three lists (including the beautifully-illustrated list of plantations in West Virginia) through featured list candidacies. High-importance good articles promoted this round include narwhal from Reid,iain james (submissions), tiger from Cwmhiraeth (submissions) and The Lion King from Igordebraga (submissions). We also saw our first featured topic points of the competition, awarded to Czar (submissions) and Red Phoenix (submissions) for their work on the Sega Genesis topic. No points have been claimed so far for good topics or featured portals.
192 was our lowest qualifying score, again showing that this WikiCup is the most competitive ever. In previous years, 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) or 100 (2010) secured a place in Round 3. Pool H was the strongest performer, with all but one of its members advancing, while only the two highest scorers in Pools G and F advanced. At the end of June, 16 users will advance into the semi-finals.

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 Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, 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 Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to 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 Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of 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.

Hi Sasuke, thank you for your prompt response to my query about the Victoria University (Australia) entry. I'll edit the article, taking note of the issues raised. To have the entry reviewed, with the view of having the list of issues removed, to whom, or where on the Wikipedia site, should I submit the revised entry?
