Squeamish Ossifrage, communication, and you:

Whenever possible, I will ensure that talk page communications are threaded. This means that I will continue conversations on the talk page they begin, whether that be here or somewhere else. I watchlist talk pages where I am involved in conversation. If you are involved in conversation on my talk page, please consider either temporarily adding it to your watchlist, or at least checking in regularly while the conversation is ongoing. Communication, after all, is what makes this project possible!

April 2014 status update

So, I've been unexpected away for a few months for some real life entanglements. I'm sorry for everyone I was working with at the time my absenteeism began. I'll be ramping things back up to full participation over the next few weeks. Sadly, this means no Wikicup for me this year, but I've still got a stack of print sources on my floor desperate to be turned into articles. And there are still things at AFD and FAC that need attention!

Or, shorter: I'm back.

Hi Squeamish Ossifrage, thanks for your helpful comments on my FAC for this fungus. I'm sending this note in the hope that you might have a chance to revisit that page and see if I've addressed everything to your satisfaction. Cheers, Sasata (talk) 16:11, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 June newsletter[edit]

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