Sorry[edit]

Oh sorry. I only wanted to add the Adventure Time example because is the inverse of others like Futurama. You that dislike others, in AT humans are extincted. Elvin Lazo (talk) 20:32, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

BLP violation[edit]

Hi, Serendipodous, I think you have a BLP violation. There is no mention in Bruce Jenner that he came out as transgender, much less any sourced reference to this claim. I think this comment needs to be removed from both the Top 10 and Top 25 and oversighted. Liz Read! Talk! 15:07, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Liz is absolutely correct here. It's an egregious BLP violation, is completely unsourced, and to some people, could be considered libelous (tho' I disagree). I've gone ahead and RevDel'd those mentions - Alison 17:37, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
Perhaps its a violation, but please keep in mind that "The Signpost" treats itself as a publication, so t would have never occurred to me (perhaps very wrongly) that there was a problem. I amended the article more because it is a violation of truth to claim the Bruce Jenner article was popular due to a car crash. This is an interesting issue, because it is far from the first time that a BLP article is popular due to very controversial event. In fact, it is almost a weekly occurrence.--Milowenthasspoken 18:30, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
Do WP:BLP and WP:NPOV apply to the Top 25 report? There's discussion on Talk:Bruce Jenner about various claims, while the article is currently protected from editing. While some viewing spikes are attributable to Google Doodles, reddit threads, film/album releases, or annual events, others are based on what's reported in the "news media", whether reliable sources or not.

Top 25[edit]

Hey, Serendipodous,
I was organizing the Category:Top 25 Report and I noticed there was not a report for these dates: Wikipedia:Top 25 Report/April 8 to 14, 2013 and Wikipedia:Top 25 Report/September 29 to October 5, 2013. Did you skip these two weeks? I can understand if you did as you have otherwise published it 52 weeks a year! Thanks. Liz Read! Talk! 17:48, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Liz, this is awesome. I had no idea how that organization could be done, now the category is all chronological when you view it! Fantastic!--Milowenthasspoken 18:36, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
Yes, Milowent, I had the pages organized chronologically but I took a break in June 2014 and the Top 25s since then had been in alphabetical order. I was telling Serendipodous that at some point, the pages should be organized by year but that involves a lot of retagging and I'm taking a break for categories right now. Some day! Liz Read!

some challenges this week[edit]

  • Just looked at the new 5000, and there are a few challenges! Just parking my thoughts here to the extent they might help: Academy Awards definitely has non-human views polluting it heavily (and with .59% mobile would be excluded); query whether 87th Academy Awards (3.02% mobile) should go as well, probably so. Kayne West is legitimately caused by people checking "loser.com" due to press coverage [1], Momofuku Ando was a google doodle, Finance looks bot-influenced as does Bitcoin, as well as Tablet computer despite the 22.90% mobile count (similar to Real estate and Computer).--Milowenthasspoken 17:13, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I actually heard about the Kanye thing on the radio!--Milowenthasspoken 14:54, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Traffic report[edit]

Actually, we know who owns loser.com: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/03/04/meet-kanye-west-s-no-1-online-troll-loser-com-owner-brian-connelly-on-shaming-kanye.html Gamaliel (talk) 16:58, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Curious[edit]

Saw this. For totally unrelated reasons (totally different project, at least), am curious where that prior capitalization discussion you had is archived. Curious about how assorted debates on that topic went in other project areas. Just wondering, won't be editing in your area, no worries! Montanabw(talk) 04:49, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
