WikiCup 2010 Signup[edit]

As you have signed up for the WikiCup and you announced a retirement from Wikipedia. I'll remove your name and I'd take your represented flag (China). If you want to make a comeback, please contact me and change your flag back. Thanks. Raymond Giggs 18:04, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Good bye and good luck![edit]

Sorry to see you go Spittle. Hope you'll come back again some day. Anyway, good luck with everything you do in your real life. ≈ Chamal talk 14:49, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Bye, Spittle. I can only echo what Chamal said, and wish you luck in life. :) Cureden 18:45, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

2010 WikiCup Signups Reconfirmation![edit]

To ensure that everyone who signed up is still committed to participating in the 2010 WikiCup, it is required that you remove your name from this list! By removing your name, you are not removing yourself from the WikiCup. This is simply a way for the judges to take note of who has not yet reconfirmed their participation. If you have not removed your name from that list by December 30th, 2009 (by 23:59 (UTC)) then your name will be removed from the WikiCup.

It's worth noting the rules have changed, likely after you signed up. The changes made thus far are:

  • Mainspace and/or portal edits will not be awarded points at all.
  • Did you know? articles (which were worth 5 points last year) will now be worth 10 points.
  • Good articles (which were worth 30 points last year) will now be worth 40 points.
  • Valued pictures will be now awarded points, however the amount (5 or 10 points) is still being discussed.
  • Featured lists (which were worth 30 points last year) will now be worth 40 points.
  • Featured portals (which were worth 25 points last year) will now be worth 35 points.
  • Featured articles (which were worth 50 points last year) will now be worth 100 points.
  • Featured topics (which were worth 10 points per article last year) will now be worth 15 points per any article in the topic that you were a major contributor to.
  • Good topics (which were worth 5 points per article last year) will now be worth 10 points per any article in the topic that you were a major contributor to.
  • In the news will still be awarded points, however the amount (5 or 10 points) is still being discussed.

If you have any final concerns about the WikiCup's rules and regulations, please ask them now, before the Cup begins to avoid last minute problems. You may come to the WikiCup's talk page, or any of the judge's user talk pages. We're looking forwards to a great 2010 WikiCup!

2010 WikiCup Signups Reconfirmation! (reminder)[edit]

To ensure that everyone who signed up is still committed to participating in the 2010 WikiCup, it is required that you remove your name from this list! By removing your name, you are not removing yourself from the WikiCup. This is simply a way for the judges to take note of who has not yet reconfirmed their participation. If you have not removed your name from that list by December 30th, 2009 (by 23:59 (UTC)) then your name will be removed from the WikiCup. Note: this is the same message from last week, but you are receiving it because you have not removed your name from the list yet! Please do so if you still plan on participating. iMatthew talk at 22:22, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Adoption?[edit]

Hi, Spittlespat!

Before I even begin to talk about adopting you, I want to point out that I don't mean in any way to make you feel inexperienced or not good enough. I also want to point out that I'm fully aware that you've been through the adoption process before, by several people. I'm also aware that I haven't been able to keep up with my past adoptees and have failed on the whole to keep in touch with them. But I'll try to make time to coach you. And, of course, I know that you've been here for over a year and aren't really a new editor anymore. You've made quite a few useful contributions and are on the way to becoming a stellar Wikipedian; you've got the spirit of it, and your intentions are very true - it's quite obvious. To me, at least.

But some of your work is still not as orderly as it should be (unknowingly removing templates, warning without a template, and several others from past edits). You've probably learned from experience about what to do and not to do on WP, but there are still a few things left I'd like you to learn about. I'm telling you this because it's obvious you want to learn more, but it seems that you rarely get the advice you want. You are sent warnings, explanations are curt at best, and most editors, whether they'd like to admit it or not, still see you as a struggling new editor. So many focus on your MySpace (or Facebook, whichever) issues that very few stop to realize that you've got tons of potential, which will show more in time.

So then. :) I'd like to adopt you, Spittlespat. Though xeno and a few others have in the past, I want to coach you through something more in-depth but less like a core tutorial. I'm more than certain you know the basics. Of course you do! Now, I think it's time for something different.

On a separate chord (perhaps a minor-major), sorry if this message seems only half-awake. The truth is, I am only half-awake. It's quite late tonight and I can't sleep. Boo hoo. I might have written some things I'll wish I hadn't, but for now, it feels right.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Last chance to confirm your WikiCup participation![edit]

Hi Spittlespat! This is the last message that will go out to remind you that in order to participate in the 2010 WikiCup, you MUST remove your name from this list! Again, the reason for this reconfirmation is to ensure you've looked over the updated point values (which were different at the time you signed up) and to ensure that you are still interested in competing! If you don't have time to participate or no longer wish to, ignore this message and leave your name on the list. All names on the list will be removed from the contestants list before the Cup starts. Cheers! iMatthew talk at 14:29, 26 December 2009 (UTC)
