Disambiguation link notification for December 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ada Jafri, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Potomac and Andover (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.

DYK for Ada Jafri[edit]

Your revert on Dihydrogen Monoxide hoax[edit]

Greetings. I wanted to comment on your revert on the DHMO hoax page. The IP editor's contribution was clearly not notable, not sourced, not appropriate for the encyclopedia; reverting the content was 100% ok. When you did so, you tagged the revert as (vandal), which I wanted to comment about. There is a range of edit quality, from "good" to "not great" to "problematic" to "needs to be undone" to "vandalism", with a lot of flavors in between.
Reading that IP's contribution, I would say it needed to be undone, but was not intentional (or unintentional) vandalism. They weren't trying to damage the encyclopedia, it was on topic for the hoax, etc. It wasn't rude or damaging. It was just not appropriate to be there.
My concern is that we're poking new editors, or at least that new editor, a bit hard at times, discouraging things we just need to correct them on. This isn't a serious problem, I don't see a pattern on quick review, but I wanted to note it and let you know.
I appreciate your efforts overall and wish you good editing. Georgewilliamherbert (talk) 22:14, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
@Georgewilliamherbert: Thank you for informing me... Well, Twinkle has not been working properly for me for sometime, and when I reverted those two edits, I had to use the undo button which doesn't generate any summary when reverting more than one edit. Had my Twinkle been ok, I would have used the [AGF] button... I wasn't creative enough then, and I simply wrote out vandal there. But thank you, once again, for letting me know this. I'll be careful next time in leaving edit summaries. —ШαмıQ @ 06:43, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi there, I noticed the Cherry Credits page has been deleted even though more information and external sources were provided. As I'm new to Wikipedia, are there other ways to improve the content to prevent deletion? BlasphemyGG (talk) 07:56, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Warning for repeated unsourced edits. Thomas.W talk to me 13:26, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

@Thomas.W: Are you blind? What needs a source there?

You could start by explaining why you repeatedly remove Devanagari... Thomas.W talk to me 13:32, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
It is not me who is removing Devanagari. Kwamikagami removed it and I made the image consistent with what the article said. —ШαмıQ @ 13:34, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
Nope. Under "Etymology" the article says that Punjabi is written in both Gurmukhi and Devanagari in India, yet you repeatedly remove the name in Devanagari from the infobox. Which is what I'm reverting. If you wanted to make the infobox reflect what the article says (which is what infoboxes should do), you should add Devanagari to the infobox under "writing systems" instead of removing all mention of it from there. Thomas.W talk to me 13:45, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
I was talking of the lede. If there are only two scripts in the lede, why include it in the image (and why in the caption, too)? This was all I had done. And you comment out the file, saying, “Not Nagari”?! When you want nagari there, why in the image and the caption only? —ШαмıQ @ 13:50, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
I merely restored the previous version to what it looked like before your unexplained/unsourced edits. If you want to change the article I suggest you start a discussion on the talk page. Especially since everything that relates to Punjab/Punjabi has a tendency to increase adrenaline levels in most people editing the articles (me excluded, though, since I have no personal connection whatsoever to South Asia and the religious and/or political conflicts there...). Thomas.W talk to me 13:54, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
Unconvincing... What you say and what you do is entirely different. You say you reverted me because I removed Devanagari from the infobox; instead, you have added it now, after the revert. You reverted my removal of Devanagari from the caption of the image which doesn't have Devanagari. By the way, I have no personal connection with either Punjabi, or Shahmukhi, or Gurmukhi, or Devanagari; or with any religious and/or political conflicts regarding Punjabi... I don't even understand what Punjabis speak... —ШαмıQ @ 14:07, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

I don't know myself. If Punjabi is written in Gurmukhi and Shahmukhi, then we shouldn't have Nagari. If it's written in Nagari, we shouldn't claim it's written in just the other two. — kwami (talk) 18:43, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

Welcome to the 2014 WikiCup![edit]

Hello Wamiq, and welcome to the 2014 WikiCup! Your submission page can be found here. The competition began on 1 January. There have been a few small changes from last year; the rules can be read in full at Wikipedia:WikiCup/Scoring, and the page also includes a summary of changes. One important rule to remember is that only content on which you have completed significant work, and nominated, in 2014 is eligible for points in the competition- the judges will be checking! As ever, this year's competition includes some younger editors. If you are a younger editor, you are certainly welcome, but we have written an advice page at Wikipedia:WikiCup/Advice for younger editors for you. Please do take a look. Any questions should be directed to one of the judges, or left on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup. Signups will close at the end of January, and the first round will end on 26 February; the 64 highest scorers at that time will make it to round 2. Good luck!

Adding couplets in a poet's page[edit]

Salam,

Noticed that you have removed the couplet that I added to the page Ghalib ki Haveli. Wanted to know if wikipedia does not allow quoting a poet?

Thanks Anwaraj (talk) 10:32, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

@Anwaraj: Wa alaikum assalam;
First of all, this is an English encyclopaedia. Adding substandard romanised Urdu is of no use to an English speaker. There is no specific Wikipedia policy regarding this, but the irrelevancy of the quotation in the context and the substandard usage along with substandard formatting prompted me to do this. Quotations are permitted, but there are standard ways to do it, as I did here. You may also like to read these Wikipedia instructions. Hope this helps. —ШαмıQ @ 13:00, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 January newsletter[edit]

The 2014 WikiCup is off to a flying start, with, at time of writing, 138 participants. The is the largest number of participants we have seen since 2010. If you are yet to join the competition, don't worry- the judges have agreed to keep the signups open for a few more days. By a wide margin, our current leader is newcomer Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), whose set of 14 featured pictures, the first FPs of the competition, was worth 490 points. Here are some more noteworthy scorers:

Featured articles, featured lists, featured topics and featured portals are yet to play a part in the competition. The judges have removed a number of submissions which were deemed ineligible. Typically, we aim to see work on a project, followed by a nomination, followed by promotion, this year. We apologise for any disappointment caused by our strict enforcement this year; we're aiming to keep the competition as fair as possible.

Wikipedians interested in friendly competition may be interested to take part in The Core Contest; unlike the WikiCup, The Core Contest is not about audited content, but, like the WikiCup, it is about article improvement; specifically, The Core Contest is about contribution to some of Wikipedia's most important article. Of course, any work done for The Core Contest, if it leads to a DYK, GA or FA, can earn WikiCup points.

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!

Religion field in infobox of BLPs[edit]

AOA. In reference to this, WP:BLPCAT asks religious beliefs of living persons should be included in the infobox only if the subject has self identified the belief and that can be found in a reliable source. Moreover after confirming the above policy, religious beliefs of a person are usually included in the article if the person is known for his/her religious beliefs.

Could you please help me a bit?[edit]

Salamunalaik,

Brother I have gone through the urdu verses on the page Ghalib ki Haveli and was awed by the transliterations of the verses that you have rendered. Can you please help me with some links as I am very eager to learn all this transliteration stuff.

Thanks in advance. Anwaraj (talk) 10:48, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

@Anwaraj: Walaikumassalam,
To start learning about transliterations, wiki articles transliteration and romanisation are good. Unfortunately, most Urdu-speaking people are unaware of specific and accurate transliteration schemes for romanisation. Instead they simply romanise Urdu according to how they see it fit with the spelling and pronunciation rules of English. One such standard scheme for a consistent and accurate Urdu to Latin conversion is the ALA-LC Romanization method for Urdu (2012), which has its wiki article ALA-LC. The wiki guideline for romanising Urdu is WP:MOSUR. The wiki article Roman Urdu throws no light on the matter, though. —ШαмıQ @ 16:01, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
Thank You very much. That was helpful! ~ A n w a r a j Urdu: انوراج ‎ 14:16, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 February newsletter[edit]

And so ends the most competitive first round we have ever seen, with 38 points required to qualify for round 2. Last year, 19 points secured a place; before that, 11 (2012) or 8 (2011) were enough. This is both a blessing and a curse. While it shows the vigourous good health of the competition, it also means that we have already lost many worthy competitors. Our top three scorers were:

  1. Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), a WikiCup newcomer whose high-quality scans of rare banknotes represent an unusual, interesting and valuable contribution to Wikipedia. Most of Godot's points this round have come from a large set of pictures used in Treasury Note (1890–91).
  2. Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions), a WikiCup veteran and a finalist last year, Adam is also a featured picture specialist, focusing on the restoration of historical images. This month's promotions have included a carefully restored set of artist William Russell Flint's work.
  3. United States WikiRedactor (submissions), another WikiCup newcomer. WikiRedactor has claimed points for good article reviews and good articles relating to pop music, many of which were awarded bonus points. Articles include Sky Ferreira, Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus and "Wrecking Ball" (Miley Cyrus song).

Other competitors of note include:

After such a competitive first round, expect the second round to also be fiercely fought. Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 1 but before the start of round 2 can be claimed in round 2, but please do not update your submission page until March (UTC). Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally.

WikiCup 2014 March newsletter[edit]

A quick update as we are half way through round two of this year's competition. WikiCup newcomer Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) (Pool E) leads, having produced a massive set of featured pictures for Silver certificate (United States), an article also brought to featured list status. Former finalist Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) (Pool G) is in second, which he owes mostly to his work with historical images, including a number of images from Urania's Mirror, an article also brought to good status. 2010 champion (Pool C) is third overall, thanks to contributions relating to naval history, including the newly featured Japanese battleship Nagato. Rhodesia Cliftonian (submissions), who currently leads Pool A and is sixth overall, takes the title for the highest scoring individual article of the competition so far, with the top importance featured article Ian Smith.

With 26 people having already scored over 100 points, it is likely that well over 100 points will be needed to secure a place in round 3. Recent years have required 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) and 100 (2010). Remember that only 64 will progress to round 3 at the end of April. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page; if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally.

WikiCup 2014 April newsletter[edit]

Round 3 of the 2014 WikiCup has just begun; 32 competitors remain. Pool G's Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) was Round 2's highest scorer, with a large number of featured picture credits. In March/April, he restored star charts from Urania's Mirror, lithographs of various warships (such as SMS Gefion) and assorted other historical media. Second overall was Pool E's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), whose featured list Silver certificate (United States) contains dozens of scans of banknotes recently promoted to featured picture status. Third was Pool G's United States ChrisGualtieri (submissions) who has produced a large number of good articles, many, including Falkner Island, on Connecticut-related topics. Other successful participants included Rhodesia Cliftonian (submissions), who saw three articles (including the top-importance Ian Smith) through featured article candidacies, and Washington, D.C. Caponer (submissions), who saw three lists (including the beautifully-illustrated list of plantations in West Virginia) through featured list candidacies. High-importance good articles promoted this round include narwhal from Canada Reid,iain james (submissions), tiger from Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) and The Lion King from Minas Gerais Igordebraga (submissions). We also saw our first featured topic points of the competition, awarded to Nepal Czar (submissions) and Indiana Red Phoenix (submissions) for their work on the Sega Genesis topic. No points have been claimed so far for good topics or featured portals.

192 was our lowest qualifying score, again showing that this WikiCup is the most competitive ever. In previous years, 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) or 100 (2010) secured a place in Round 3. Pool H was the strongest performer, with all but one of its members advancing, while only the two highest scorers in Pools G and F advanced. At the end of June, 16 users will advance into the semi-finals.

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!

WikiCup 2014 August newsletter[edit]

The final of the 2014 WikiCup begins in a few short minutes! Our eight finalists are listed below, along with their placement in Round 4:

  1. Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), a WikiCup newcomer, finished top of Pool A and was the round's highest scorer. Godot is a featured picture specialist, claiming large numbers of points due to high-quality scans of historical documents, especially banknotes.
  2. Scotland Casliber (submissions) is a WikiCup veteran, having been a finalist every year since 2010. In the semi-final, he was Pool B's highest scorer. Cas's points primarily come from articles on the natural sciences.
  3. Nepal Czar (submissions) was Pool A's runner-up. Czar's points come mostly from content related to independent video games, including both articles and topics.
  4. Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) was Pool B's runner-up. Another featured picture specialist, many of Adam's points come from the restoration of historical media. He has been a WikiCup finalist twice before.
  5. Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) won the WikiCup in 2012 and 2013, and enters this final as the first wildcard. She focuses on biology-related articles, and has worked on several high-importance articles.
  6. Florida 12george1 (submissions) is the second wildcard. George's points come primarily from meteorology-related articles. This year and last year, George was the first person in the competition to score.
  7. Colorado Sturmvogel 66 (submissions), the third wildcard, was the 2010 champion and a finalist last year. His writes mostly on military history, especially naval history.
  8. Canada Bloom6132 (submissions), the fourth and final wildcard, has participated in previous WikiCups, but not reached any finals. Bloom's points are mostly thanks to did you knows, featured lists and good articles related to sport and national symbols.

We say goodbye to this year's semi-finalists. Herm Matty.007 (submissions), Ohio ThaddeusB (submissions), United States WikiRedactor (submissions), Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), Greece Yellow Evan (submissions), Portugal Prism (submissions) and Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) have all performed well to reach this stage of the competition, and we hope they will all be joining us again next year.

There are two upcoming competitions unrelated to the WikiCup which may be of interest to those who receive this newsletter. The Stub Contest will run through September, and revolves around expanding stub articles, especially high-importance or old stubs. In addition, a proposal has been made for a new competition, the GA Cup, which the organisers plan to run next year. This competition is based on the WikiCup and aims to reduce the good article review backlog.

There is now a thread for brainstorming on how next year's WikiCup competition should work. Please come along and share your thoughts- What works? What doesn't work? What needs changing? Signups for next year's competition will be open soon; we will be in touch. If, at this stage of the competition, you are keen to help the with the WikiCup, please do what you can to participate in review processes. Our finalists will find things much easier if the backlogs at good article candidates, featured article candidates, featured picture candidates and the rest are kept at a minimum. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!
