List of Coffeehouse chains[edit]

I agree that it would be better to not be self-referential, but I believe we need something to tell editors not to put useless references in the list. Perhaps re-word that sentence to something like "List of articles describing coffee-house chains"? Tarl.Neustaedter (talk) 20:41, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

This is an issue on many, many list pages, and I think on many of those it works via the talk page (and diligent monitoring by editors such as yourself - thanks for that!) without a self-reference. UnitedStatesian (talk) 12:50, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Feedback needed on using special characters[edit]

Hello. Thank you for using VisualEditor! Having editors use it is the best way for the Wikimedia Foundation to develop it into the best tool it can be.

While we always welcome general feedback (please report any issues in Bugzilla in the "VisualEditor" product or drop your feedback on the central feedback page on MediaWiki.org), the developers are especially interested right now in feedback on the special character inserter. This new tool is used for inserting special characters (including symbols like , IPA pronunciation symbols, mathematics symbols, and characters with diacritics). It is intended to help people whose computers do not have good character inserters. For example, many Mac users prefer to use the extensive "Special Characters..." tool present at the bottom of the Edit menu in all applications or to learn the keyboard shortcuts for characters like ñ and ü.

The current version of the special characters tool in VisualEditor is very simple and very basic. It will be getting a lot of work in the coming weeks and months. It does not contain very many character sets at this time. (The specific character sets can be customized at each Wikipedia, so that each project could have a local version with the characters it wants.) But the developers want your ideas at this early stage about ways that the overall concept could be improved. I would appreciate your input on this question, so please try out the character inserter and tell me what changes to the design would (or would not!) best work for you.

Screenshot of the Insert menu in VisualEditor
The "insert" pulldown on the task bar of VisualEditor will lead you to the 'Special character' tool.
Screenshot of Special Characters tool
This is the Special character inserter as it appears on many wikis. (Some may have customized it.) Your feedback on this tool is particularly important.

Issues you might consider:

  • How often do you normally use Wikipedia's character inserters?
  • Which character sets are useful to you? Should it include all 18 of the character sets provided in the wikitext editor's newer toolbar at the English Wikipedia, the 10 present in the older editor toolbar, or some other combination of character sets?
  • How many special characters would you like to see at one time?
    • Should there be a "priority" or "favorites" section for the 10 or 12 characters that most editors need most often? Is it okay if you need an extra click to go beyond the limited priority set?
    • How should the sections be split up? Should they be nested? Ordered?
    • How should the sections be navigated? Should there be a drop-down? A nested menu?
  • The wikitext editor has never included many symbols and characters, like and . Do you find that you need these missing characters? If the character inserter in VisualEditor includes hundreds or thousands of special characters, will it be overwhelming? How will you find the character you want? What should be done for users without enough space to display more than a few dozen characters?
  • Should the character inserter be statically available until dismissed? Should it hover near the mouse? Should it go away on every selection or 10 seconds after a selection with no subsequent ones?
  • Some people believe that the toolbar already has too many options—how would you simplify it?

The developers are open to any thoughts on how the special character inserter can best be developed, even if this requires significant changes. Please leave your views on the central feedback page, or, if you'd prefer, you can contact me directly on my talk page. It would be really helpful if you can tell me how frequently you need to use special characters in your typical editing and what languages or other special characters are important to you.

Thank you again for your work with VisualEditor and for any feedback you can provide. I really do appreciate it.

P.S. You might be interested in the current ideas about improving citations, too. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 00:20, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Content deletion during merge process[edit]

When you merged Sixth Street Railroad Bridge to Parkersburg Bridge (CSX), you failed to merge significant information/categories/etc pertaining to the bridge's inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places, resulting in the deletion of that content from the article about the bridge.

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello UnitedStatesian. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).

Help with Verizon article?[edit]

Hello UnitedStatesian, I found your name on the list of participants at WikiProject Companies and wanted to reach out to see if you would be interested in helping with a draft for the Verizon Communications article. I am an employee of Verizon and I don't make any direct edits to Verizon related articles myself, but I have put forward drafts to update the article. Could you help me with a new draft that I am suggesting?

The new draft I am offering is to add a section regarding the company's "Corporate responsibility", which currently is not covered in the article at all. You can find the draft in my userspace. Also, I have left a more detailed request on the Verizon Talk page, here. If you have the time, would you be able to look at my draft and move it into the article if you feel it looks good? I am open to any suggestions or questions.

Thanks so much, VZBob (talk) 14:25, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Hey VZB, thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately I think the section as written violates the undue weight guideline. By my rough caclucation, it would be over 10% of the article, and this for a 150 year-old company that I am sure is a good corporate citizen, but does not seem to be unusually so (e.g., Verizon did not make this list, and Wikipedia's article for its #1 company, Microsoft, gives no mention of its CSR. I think one or two sentences max would be the appropriate amount of space to give in the Verizon article to its CSR. UnitedStatesian (talk) 17:11, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for getting back to me on this and looking at the draft. I understand and appreciate your perspective on this, so I am going to look at editing down the information in my draft. One question for you: one or two sentences feels very short... since we have a foundation that seems to have enough coverage in third-party sources for its own article, would a paragraph be too much? In a paragraph I could neatly summarize the key details about the foundation, along with Verizon's other major CSR initiatives. If I put this together, would you be willing to take a look?

I think a paragraph would be great, and then would only need 8-10 third-party references. Happy to take a look once you have that. UnitedStatesian (talk) 02:26, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks again, UnitedStatesian, I've updated the draft in my userspace to a shorter version that aims to summarize the key information about Verizon's corporate responsibility. Here's the link again: User:VZBob/Corporate responsibility Can you take a look? VZBob (talk) 19:29, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
That's great; my one comment is there are more footnotes than needed: no need to have the same source cited multiple times in a singe sentence. I'll take it from here, though, and put it into the VZ article in the next couple of weeks. UnitedStatesian (talk) 13:46, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
That's great, thanks again, UnitedStatesian. VZBob (talk) 20:04, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Hi UnitedStatesian, in case you hadn't seen, I wanted to let you know that another editor came across the request on the Verizon Talk page and added the reduced-length section (with a few edits of their own) into the article. I'd like to thank you again for taking the time to look at this draft and give helpful feedback. Thanks again. VZBob (talk) 20:36, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
