Bedell-Sivright[edit]

Sorry for being ignorant Shudde, but it's report writing season in school and I'm having to take my foot off the pedal on Wikipedia until closer to the summer holidays. Yes I think the great Darkie Sivright is ripe for a GA. I always believed that there were a trio of great British hard men during this period, Sivright for Scotland, David Jones (rugby) for Wales and Herbert "The Octopus" Gamlin for England. Nice work so far, and if you need me to expand on a particular feature I'll try to help or find references. Cheers FruitMonkey (talk) 17:43, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited David Bedell-Sivright, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Test match and Home Nations Championship (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.

Help with increasing women's rugby content[edit]

Hi there! First, thank you for your involvement increasing the content of women's rugby (and science) on Wikipedia and for voting to keep my page (although it ended up being deleted). Oh well.

This whole thing has made me realize how little coverage there is of women's rugby on Wikipedia despite there being quite a lot of women's international rugby being played. You noted this is due to the lack of press coverage it receives, and unfortunately in the case of Americans what little press coverage we have is apparently not considered unbiased or notable enough, and our national governing body apparently deletes their archives. Along those lines, I am wondering what can be done about that in the realm of Wikipedia. Could the notability requirements be changed so that they are at least more equitable between men and women? Could there be articles written about the rugby covering media entities in the US in order to give them more credibility?

I'm planning to start adding articles for other notable Americans that do qualify under the notability guidelines including Shaina Turley (USA Eagles captain, video profile), Emil Signes (former USA women's 7s coach and possibly integral to 7s now being in the Olympics), and Dana Teagarden (first female to referee a men's senior international).

I'd love to hear your thoughts. I'm relatively new to this whole Wikipedia thing, although I've done some anonymous editing of the past to scientific and medicine articles where there were poor word choices or bad explanations. And I have some coding experience, although it's all in Matlab.

Thank you! Val Vgriffeth (talk) 00:00, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Thank you for your detailed reply! I've been looking through some of the resources you've sent and they are very helpful. I've been working on an article that is now in my sandbox. Would appreciate any suggestions you might be able to provide. I also added some news sources to the resources page. Vgriffeth (talk) 15:34, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Thank you, that would be great! And yes, I'm sure. He has multiple profiles and interviews done with him with the major American rugby news organization at the time (Rugby Mag) as well as international pubs. Still working on tracking down about 50-60 USA player profiles from the mag that reference him as biggest influence. I agree that the USA Rugby national team pages need some work, and he would definitely belong in those sections. Right now he's linked to from HK Women's 7s and Princeton rugby.

History of cricket in Bangladesh[edit]

Hi, while I entirely support the copyright violation investigation, would it be possible to restore this article minus the offending section (i.e., the "dateline" section) which has obviously been a copy-and-paste effort from some newspaper or magazine. I believe I can vouch for the integrity of the remainder of the article. Thanks. Jack | talk page 18:09, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

@BlackJack: I didn't delete the article, instead I followed the instructions at {{Copyvio}} and blanked it (replacing it with the template). So everything is there in the history. There are instructions on the page on how to recreate the article without the offending material, on the page is says: Otherwise, you may write a new article without copyright-infringing material. Click "Show" to read where and how., and hopefully those instructions will tell you what you need to know. You may want to do this promptly, as there is a chance an admin may delete the page if they think the copyvio problems are serious enough. -- Shudde talk 09:47, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi, Shudde. I've restored the content without the copyvio section. I've added a reflist and tagged it as having no references at all. Can you take another look and make sure you are happy that none of the remainder contravenes copyright. I don't think it does but the article certainly needs a lot of work on sourcing, copyedit and update. Thanks very much. Jack | talk page 10:39, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
@BlackJack: It did say at the top of the page "Do not restore or edit the blanked content on this page until the issue is resolved by an administrator, copyright clerk or OTRS agent." -- did you follow the instructions? You should check yourself whether any of the remaining material is a copyvio, I did a few Google searches to find the initial breach. You should do the same with the material that you have restored. -- Shudde talk 10:43, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Ah, I've misunderstood. I'll create a new article. There is another dubious section "Brief Summary" which I'd just deleted. I'll restore it to the copyvio notice. Thanks again. Jack | talk page 10:51, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

@BlackJack: -- No worries. I don't have much experience with these kind of problems, but good luck. Shame the article needed to be culled so much, but hopefully something can be salvaged out of it! -- Shudde talk 10:53, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library: New Account Coordinators Needed[edit]

Hi Books & Bytes recipients: The Wikipedia Library has been expanding rapidly and we need some help! We currently have 10 signups for free account access open and several more in the works... In order to help with those signups, distribute access codes, and manage accounts we'll need 2-3 more Account Coordinators.

It takes about an hour to get up and running and then only takes a couple hours per week, flexible depending upon your schedule and routine. If you're interested in helping out, please drop a note in the next week at my talk page or shoot me an email at: jorlowitz@gmail.com.

Morihei Ueshiba[edit]

Hi Shudde. Thanks for your work reviewing this article for GA. I've addressed most of the point you've raised; there are a couple I'm still chewing over, but if you'd like to take another look now is probably as good a time as any. Cheers, Yunshui  09:13, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

I've made a number of changes regarding the images; would you mind taking another glance over them? (I've also started the onerous process of sourcing all of his students individually... that's going to take a while...) Yunshui  14:22, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Peer review: Didier Drogba[edit]

Hi. I listed the Didier Drogba article for peer review and from the volunteers list I can see you review sport articles, especially football codes. With that said it would be much appreciated if you offered advice to turn the article into FA-class material, to which I think it's very close. You can see the discussion here. Thanks.

WikiProject Good articles Future GAN Backlog Drive[edit]

Hello everyone! Hope you've all been having a great summer!

TheQ Editor recently proposed the idea of having another Backlog Drive in either September/October or November/December of this year. For those of you who have participated in the past two drives you know I was the one who organized them, however, come September, this will be my most important year in school so I will not be able to coordinate this drive (if it happens). TheQ Editor has volunteered to be a coordinator for the drive. If any of you would like to co-coordinator, please notify TheQ Editor on his talk page.

If you would be interested in participating in a Backlog Drive sometime before the end of this year, please notify TheQ Editor. Also, make sure to specify what month(s) work best for you.

At the time this message was sent out, the backlog was at 520 nominations. Since May, the backlog has been steadily increasing and we are currently near an all time high. Even though the backlog will not disappear over one drive, this drive can lead to several others which will (hopefully) lead to the day where there is no longer a backlog.

As always, the more participants, the better, and everyone is encouraged to participate!

GA Cup[edit]

Hello everyone! We hope you have all been having a great summer!

As we all know, the recent GAN Backlog Drives have not had any big impact on the backlog. Because of that, me (Dom497), Figureskatingfan, and TheQ Editor have worked on an idea that could possibly finally put a dent into the massive backlog. Now, I will admit, the idea isn't entirely ours as we have took the general idea of the WikiCup and brought it over to WikiProject Good Articles. But anyways, here's what we have in mind:

For all of you that do not know what the WikiCup is, it is an annual competition between several editors to see who can get the most Good Articles, Featured Article's, Did You Know's, etc. Based of this, we propose to you the GA Cup. This competition will only focus on reviewing Good articles.

For more info on the proposal, click here. As a FYI, the proposal page is not what the final product will look like (if you do go ahead with this idea). It will look very similar to WikiCup's page(s).

The discussion for the proposal will take place here. Please let us know if you are interested, have any concerns, things to consider, etc.

WikiProject Good Articles - GA Cup[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup
Symbol support vote.svg

WikiProject Good articles is holding a new competition, the GA Cup, from October 1, 2014 - March 28, 2015. The Cup will be based on reviewing Good article nominations; for each review, points will be awarded with bonuses for older nominations, longer articles and comprehensive reviews. All participants will start off in one group and the highest scoring participants will go through to the second round. At the moment six rounds are planned, but this may change based on participant numbers.

Some of you may ask: what is the purpose for a competition of this type? Currently, there is a backlog of about 500 unreviewed Good article nominations, almost an all time high. It is our hope that we can decrease the backlog in a fun way, through friendly competition.

Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors! Sign-ups will be open until October 15, 2014 so sign-up now!

If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the four judges.

Cheers from NickGibson3900, Dom497, TheQ Editor and Figureskatingfan.
