The Help Project Newsletter

Issue VI - April 2013

Open Help Conference

The Open Help Conference will be taking place June 15-19 in Cincinnati Ohio, USA. The conference includes two days of presentations and open discussions, followed by team "sprints" - collaborative efforts to write and improve documentation.

It has been suggested to send a team from Wikipedia/Wikimedia: to share our own knowledge about help, learn from others in the open source community working on similar problems, and to carry out a sprint to improve some aspect of Wikipedia's help.

There may be support available for volunteers to attend from the Participation Support program (and your editor is certainly hoping to be there!) Please join the discussion in Meta's IdeaLab if you're interested, and/or have suggestions about what we could work on.

Other news

If you don't wish to receive this newsletter on your talk page in future then just edit the participants page and add "no newsletter" next to your name.

Suggestions for future issues are welcome at Wikipedia:Help Project/Newsletter.

Re Moa hunters-inland along clutha river etc[edit]

Hi, Ive tried my best to condense a huge ammount of information to just a few sentences. I believe the information was an accurate synopsis of the very detailed research. Rather than just delete it, which is not very helpful, can you say what you found inaccurate or wrong? I will try to get back to it and fix any errors when I have time. Thanks for your interest and help.

Nomination of Sarah Ann Cripps for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Sarah Ann Cripps is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Sarah Ann Cripps until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.

Your recent reverts on Maori land[edit]

You cannot just revert without some sort of explanation. I have 2 sections of information relating to my edits on land in "talk".You need to read that. Anyone who doesn't realise land is at the heart of Maori culture should not be editing that article."doesnt belong here "is a totally pointless and wrong statement. It seems to me you have little knowledge of the topic to write this. Land is at the very heart of Maori culture. Cultural attitudes to land did not stay static. The period of most change was post 1864. Go onto the talk page and argue your point that information about land doesnt belong in an article about Maori culture. I will be really interested to see them.

Edit war[edit]

Stuart. Please refrain from sending me self-serving messages about edit warring when the only issue is your insistence in removing properly sourced, relevant material from the Hager article on extremely flimsy pretexts. Come on man, you know that's not on. 101.98.195.208 (talk) 00:58, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Edit war[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Nicky Hager shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Should I post this notice on User:GHSinclair as well? I see you didn't notify your co-editor.Edgespath24 (talk) 03:30, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Professor Michelle Coote[edit]

A tag has been placed on Professor Michelle Coote requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section R3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect from an implausible typo or misnomer. Please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. I dream of horses If you reply here, please leave me a {{Talkback}} message on my talk page. @ 05:23, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Helen McGregor (geologist)[edit]

I see you removed the PROD from Helen McGregor (geologist). In what way do you think notability is satisfied? A h-index of 12 is well below the threshold of WP:PROF#C1, and everything else listed is typical for an ordinary academic, -- 101.117.57.69 (talk) 08:13, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

I see you also removed the PRODs from Rebecca Spindler and Erin Roger, which have similar notability concerns. I would like to request that all 3 articles be listed at AfD. -- 101.117.57.69 (talk) 08:16, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Prue Hyman[edit]

Hi Stuart - I was assessing this article but she does not seem to be notable from what you have written. Am I missing something? NealeFamily (talk) 22:52, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

@NealeFamily: Fair enough. I've moved it to draft and will add some more to it. Stuartyeates (talk) 23:56, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
If you want me to do some research on her, let me know - happy to help. NealeFamily (talk) 02:39, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
@NealeFamily: Thanks for the offer, but I'm seeing a buttload of hits on nzherald and stuff for her name, so I'll sort through that and the more well-known blogosphere first. It is, after all, my responsibility to find the sources. Stuartyeates (talk) 03:17, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
You do so much, I don't mind assisting NealeFamily (talk) 03:20, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
@NealeFamily: The fact that I know friends will ping me when my stubs get too stuby gives me the confidence to continue creating the number and breadth of stubs that I do. Anyway, take a look at the new Draft:Prue Hyman. Stuartyeates (talk) 07:29, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Looks much better and should cross any notablitiy threshhold. She has made some significant contributions especially in NZ I suggest you move it back out of draft and I will add further information as I find it. Keep up the good work.NealeFamily (talk) 07:51, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Constructiveness and Teamwork[edit]

Your revert yesterday instantly branded as unconstructive a protest against a laughably prejudiced destruction of a serious WPbiog of Dennis Rawlins. Up to a few days ago it had accented his lifetime of primary research in refined academic areas. But after August 30 complaints on Graeme Bartlett WPtalk about CSICOP tool and WPadministrator Vsmith's slanders and threats against Rawlins, the biog was deleted on September 12 by Vsmith's catspaw Drmies and replaced by a stub blatantly designed by CSICOP detractors to pretend that Rawlins's career has accomplished almost nothing but headlines in second rate newspapers and referring to him as merely a "professional skeptic". (Such preciously unselfconscious smearing from professional skeptic CSICOP is as amusing as irony gets.) Do you find that constructive? Will you help create a fair biog, more competent than the original, but which recognizes not only Rawlins's few errors (which he repeatedly insured were fully represented in the biog) but provides at least a summary of his many credits and discoveries, also his repeated vindications by unexpected new evidence? Will you do what you can to discourage threatening and conniving administrators and vandals?

How did the Rawlins biog get onto your watch list? The flap over it is a cesspool of revenge, threats, extortion, slander, and primarily suppression which deserves chronicling as much as the original "sTARBABY". (And the offending organization is so well known that its behavior will interest a lot more people.) Anyone asked to become a partner in constitutionally unhumble Vsmith's unprovoked and dementedly bungled (see Bartlett talk on Velikovsky) war against Rawlins should check his conscience and his caution.2thedef (talk) 04:32, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

I know very little about Dennis Rawlins, CSICOP or any of these other people. What I do know is that wikipedia is an encyclopedia, a tertiary source, built on reliable independent secondary sources. If I understand your complaint correctly, finding such sources relating to Dennis Rawlins needs to be your first step. Without secondary sources you're unlikely to get far. Stuartyeates (talk) 04:59, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

You do not even acknowledge the obvious question of how and by whom you got assigned to a subject you admittedly know so little about. There are secondary sources galore in the previous biog, University of Cambridge, New York Times, British Museum, Isis, and so on. But Vsmith's Drmies tossed them all out, instead slumming at the low end of newspaper stories to create a half-smear rather than a biog. The material you autoeliminated was rambunctious but valid in all respects while the biog you protect is deliberately misleading. Why are you fronting for smearers and suppressors? Your calling the September 16 intro to the biog unconstructive is typical of the Rawlins WP biog history. Faced with undeniably relevant and accurate facts — find some excuse for deletion to protect the ever more deeply invested censoring and threatening culprits and their heroes and saints, while denigrating or disappearing material in favor of their devils. Kill as many awful facts as possible using labels like "blog", not Reliable, "stuff", unencyclopedic, "junk", not constructive, "trivial". If you are serious about finding secondary sources then just undo Drmies's edit and you will have dozens of such sources. With input from every side the biog can then be mutually improved in stages to the satisfaction of all but fanatics. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2thedef (talkcontribs) 22:06, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

The Signpost: 17 September 2014[edit]

Woo Wing Thye[edit]

Hello. Am trying to improve the Woo Wing Thye page. Curious why academic journals should be considered unreliable or "self-published." Please advise.Malwriter (talk) 09:24, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Material written by the subject is not independent, even after peer review. Stuartyeates (talk) 09:30, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Right. If your subject has exciting things to report, secondary sources should do it. Otherwise every academic biography would turn into a resume. Or, to put it another way, a journal article by person X on topic Y is a reliable source, possibly, for article Y. It is not an acceptable source for article X. Drmies (talk) 15:28, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Assessment[edit]

Hi Stuart, if you do assessments of new MP pages, can you please include the politics parameters, too? And the Maori parameter, where appropriate. Here's some code for copy-pasting: Schwede66 21:01, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

{{WikiProject New Zealand
 |class=Stub
 |importance=low
 |politics=yes
 |politics-importance=low
 |maori=yes
 |maori-importance= low
}}

I normally use a tool that doesn't allow me to do that, so I should probably stop doing these MPs. Stuartyeates (talk) 21:03, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
