Page Curation update[edit]

Hey all :). We've just deployed another set of features for Page Curation. They include flyouts from the icons in Special:NewPagesFeed, showing who reviewed an article and when, a listing of this in the "info" flyout, and a general re-jigging of the info flyout - we've also fixed the weird bug with page_titles_having_underscores_instead_of_spaces in messages sent to talkpages, and introduced CSD logging! As always, these features will need some work - but any feedback would be most welcome.

Greetings. Because you have already cast a vote for the 2013 Arbitration Committee Elections, I regret to inform you that due to a misconfiguration of the SecurePoll we've been forced to strike all votes and reset voting.

AFD on Enterprise Architect[edit]

Please see the Request for Undeletion on: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Requests_for_undeletion#Enterprise_Architect_.28software.29

As stated by other contributors to the above request - this is a notable piece of software with global usage in very large organizations. However both contributors to the AFD deemed it “non-notable”. What is the process to have this reviewed or re-posted? {Leggattst (talk)}

 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Leggattst (talkcontribs) 06:39, 12 June 2014 (UTC) 
Hi Leggattst. Wikipedia articles need to show that there are multiple reliable sources covering the topic in detail. I've looked at the deleted version of the article and also done some checking on Google and I can't find enough sources to satisfy notability. If there are sources which are reliable, in-depth and independent, it'd be helpful if you could point me to them. I'm happy to move the article into Draft state and then when you think the article is ready, it can be submitted through articles for creation so another pair of eyes can look over it and check the sources. Does that seem reasonable? —Tom Morris (talk) 09:56, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Tom Morris, Under References the first ten entries are from independent authors. CSIRO (Australia), Object Management Group OMG (US), IPG insurance (New Zealand), Doug Rosenberg Iconix (US), Frank Truen - Cephas (US), Phil Chudley - Dunstan Thomas (UK). A couple of these are published on the Sparx site, but other independant sources for these possibly could be set.

Do you think there needs to be more independent papers or case studies? There are others available.

Some years ago there was a bibliography listing books written about the application. This was removed for reasons that a bibliography was not relevant. Would you prefer something like that is restored?Leggattst (talk) 07:15, 13 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. Thanks and cheers, Jake Ocaasi via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:41, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

VisualEditor global newsletter—June 2014[edit]

VisualEditor-logo.svg
The character formatting menu

Did you know?

The character formatting menu, or "Style text" menu lets you set bold, italic, and other text styles. "Clear formatting" removes all text styles and removes links to other pages.

Do you think that clear formatting should remove links? Are there changes you would like to see for this menu? Share your opinion at MediaWiki.org.

The user guide has information about how to use VisualEditor.

The VisualEditor team is mostly working to fix bugs, improve performance, reduce technical debt, and other infrastructure needs. You can find on Mediawiki.org weekly updates detailing recent work.

  • They have moved the "Keyboard shortcuts" link out of the "Page options" menu, into the "Help" menu. Within dialog boxes, buttons are now more accessible (via the Tab key) from the keyboard.
  • You can now see the target of the link when you click on it, without having to open the inspector.
  • The team also expanded TemplateData: You can now add a parameter type  "date" for dates and times in the ISO 8601 format, and  "boolean" for values which are true or false. Also, templates that redirect to other templates (like {{citeweb}}{{cite web}}) now get the TemplateData of their target (bug 50964). You can test TemplateData by editing mw:Template:Sandbox/doc.
  • Category: and File: pages now display their contents correctly after saving an edit (bug 65349, bug 64239)
  • They have also improved reference editing: You should no longer be able to add empty citations with VisualEditor (bug 64715), as with references. When you edit a reference, you can now empty it and click the "use an existing reference" button to replace it with another reference instead. 
  • It is now possible to edit inline images with VisualEditor. Remember that inline images cannot display captions, so existing captions get removed. Many other bugs related to images were also fixed.
  • You can now add and edit {{DISPLAYTITLE}} and __DISAMBIG__ in the "Page options" menu, rounding out the full set of page options currently planned.
  • The tool to insert special characters is now wider and simpler.

Looking ahead[edit]

The VisualEditor team has posted a draft of their goals for the next fiscal year. You can read them and suggest changes on MediaWiki.org.

The team posts details about planned work on VisualEditor's roadmap. You will soon be able to drag-and-drop text as well as images. If you drag an image to a new place, it won't let you place it in the middle of a paragraph. All dialog boxes and windows will be simplified based on user testing and feedback. The VisualEditor team plans to add autofill features for citations. Your ideas about making referencing quick and easy are still wanted. Support for upright image sizes is being developed. The designers are also working on support for viewing and editing hidden HTML comments and adding rows and columns to tables.

Supporting your wiki[edit]

Please read VisualEditor/Citation tool for information on configuring the new citation template menu, labeled "Cite". This menu will not appear unless it has been configured on your wiki.

If you speak a language other than English, we need your help with translating the user guide. The guide is out of date or incomplete for many languages, and what's on your wiki may not be the most recent translation. Please contact me if you need help getting started with translation work on MediaWiki.org.

VisualEditor can be made available to most non-Wikipedia projects. If your community would like to test VisualEditor, please contact product manager James Forrester or file an enhancement request in Bugzilla.

Please share your questions, suggestions, or problems by posting a note at mw:VisualEditor/Feedback or by joining the office hours on Saturday, 19 July 2014 at 21:00 UTC (daytime for the Americas and Pacific Islands) or on Thursday, 14 August 2014 at 9:00 UTC (daytime for Europe, Middle East, Asia).

To change your subscription to this newsletter, please see the subscription pages on Meta or the English Wikipedia. Thank you! Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 04:59, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Analytic philosophy, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Intuition. 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.

WZ-10 Page Locked[edit]

Hello I am Jon. I am glad that the page was locked for good reason, I just got off work and anticipated that there will be an editing war here on the page, and I was right. This edit war was started by Pvpoodle, Shulinjiang and some other unregistered users. At first, Pvpoodle wanted to push through his own personal propaganda and other users Shulinjiang I assume, pushed back. I have been reading both of their comments for some time and they are very similar personality wise but completely different politically and standing wise! To reach a general consensus on this issue, I suggest that both pro-Kamov and Pro-CAIC sources to be kept with one countering each other!

To point out the mistakes of Pvpoodle's sources. 1. His source cited that: " In 1995, Kamov developed a preliminary design in the 6t weight class under a contract with the Chinese government, says Sergey Mikheev, Kamov's chief design engineer, speaking at the Heli-Expo trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada." Since it is preliminary, this means the remaining and bulk of the WZ-10's deigns were done by the Chinese especially CAIC under Wu Xing Ming. 2. "Due to understandable reasons, this information was kept secret, he says." His source basically says that WZ-10's Preliminary design was done by Kamov under secret and now just three month after WZ-10 was officially revealed, all of a sudden Kamov's chief designer came out and "declassify" their involvement! 3. Mikheev says. "They gave us the desired weight, we discussed preliminary performance parameters, then we signed a contract and we fulfilled the contract, he says". Then later: "Mikheev would not comment on the WZ-10's performance." His sources contradict each other. If Kamov's deigner Mikheev has the audacity to say that Kamov's did WZ-10's initial design with all the preliminary performance parameters, then why he could not tell WZ-10's performance? 4. All four of his sources were written from March,7,2013 to March,15,2013. Just 8 days apart and just three month after the Chinese revealed the WZ-10, they all contain the same contents quoting form Kamov's designer Mikheev. 5. Pvpoodle deliberately made a mistake on the countering source provided by other users. The title "俄罗斯之声:武直-10全靠中国人自己完成," in Chinese translates that "Voice of Russia: WZ-10 is completely done by the Chinese themselves." Pvpoodle's translation is: " Voice of Russia: WZ -10 thanks to the Chinese people themselves to complete." It seems that he had used google translate which incorrectly translated the sentence. 俄罗斯之声=Voice of Russia, 全靠中国人自己完成=Completely done by Chinese themselves. This article was written on 03/13/2013, the exact same time period when those four western sources had been published. Its purpose was to quote their contents and debunk them. 6. As everyone can see on the WZ-10 page, it was well written and I have spend hours writing it. Each section from weapon systems, engines, rotor blades, glass cockpit, avionics, radars and flight testing were all designed and done by the Chinese themselves. All the components of WZ-10 were also supplied by Chinese companies, although WZ-10 did use PW engine as its initial engines for flight testing, but the finial production ones were using WoZ-9, a Chinese engine. Yet Pvpoodle give all the design credit to Kamov, which according to his own source stated that Kamov was only involved in its preliminary design.

I suggest that a general consensus to be made from all the editors here on this page and end this edit war, that keep all sourced contents.

1. Change the designer of WZ-10 to: Preliminary design done by Kamov, Prototype and Critical Components designs done by CAIC under Wu XingMing.

2. Remove this section from the front page"It was designed by Kamov design bureau of Russia under a contract by the Chinese government.[1][2][3][4] It was further developed and flight tested by the 602nd Research Institute under Wu Ximing (吴希明) and is being built by Changhe Aircraft Industries Corporation (CAIC). [1][2][3][4]" under the design content.

Therefor, the front page would look like this: The Z-10 (Chinese: 直-10 for 直升机) is an attack helicopter developed by the People's Republic of China. It is designed primarily for anti-tank missions but has secondary air-to-air capability as well.

Nicknames of characters in the Chinese classic novel Water Margin was used to name Z-10 and its smaller comrade Harbin Z-19: Z-10 is named as Fierce Thunderbolt (Pi Li Huo, 霹靂火), the nickname of Qin Ming, while Z-19 is named as Black Whirlwind (Hei Xuan Feng, 黑旋風), the nickname of Li Kui.[7][8]

3. Under the design content section it would look like this:

The Kamov design bureau was contracted to perform the preliminary design work under a secret contract. Kamov designed , tested and verified the helicopter design, after which it was provided to the Chinese team.[1][2][3][4] The full prototype design and critical components designs were all done by Chinese themselves.

Wu Ximing (吴希明) of the 602nd Research Institute, one of the Chinese top scientists involved in the 863 Program was publicly credited with being the chief designer of the Z-10, in an attempt to preserve the secrecy of the Kamov contract. Wu had earlier participated in the designs of the armed version of transport helicopters Z-8A and WZ-9. In order to complete the necessary development, the 602nd Research Institute and CAIC had jointly built a new engineering design center, industrial simulator, aircraft engine ground test center, fatigue laboratory, and rotary test platform (nicknamed as Iron Bird Platform, 铁鸟台). In the end of 2001, the final test was completed on the full-scale rotary test platform, paving the way for test flights.

Composite material is widely used in the Z-10 but China faced difficulties in this field, particularly in the area of survivability during crashes. Huge efforts were spent to domestically develop composite materials able to provide comparable levels of survivability to Western counterparts. This achievement earned a 2nd place in the Commission for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (COSTIND) progress reward.

just to bring to your attention that this is the same guy Shulinjiang who was blocked for sock puppeting. Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Shulinjiang is still open. he has got it into his head that i am responsible for adding "false evil western claims" to the article and continues to go through great lengths to try and prove me wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pvpoodle (talkcontribs) 06:07, 8 July 2014‎

The whole reason the page is locked is so you can argue about it on the talk page. I won't read any of this because I don't know or care about the topic in question and my talk page is not the place to discuss it. Go to the talk page and comment there. —Tom Morris (talk) 05:42, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
