Apologies

I am sorry for my actions on the FAC of Gemini. Because I am not a co-nominator of the article (despite wishing that I had been one), I thought I am allowed to post comments. Also, I edited much of the article not for the fun of it, but because Sriram was absent for one month, which would have failed the FAC again. But I promise they will never happen again on any other FAC. Kailash29792 (talk) 04:36, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

While I see that GANs can only be reviewed by "anyone who has not contributed significantly to" the article, I believe FACs can be reviewed by anyone. Is there a rule prohibiting it? With that argument, an editor reviewing an FAC should have made not a single edit to the article. Pls. enlighten me. -- Sriram speak up 14:05, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
@Kailash29792: My bad! All editors can review FACs per the instructions given here. Further, it says "If you were a major contributor to the article, please note that when you support". I thought it was an unwritten rule for FACs that major contributors shouldn't support the nomination as in the case of GAN. @Sriram Vikram: Thanks for enlightening this fogey! Best wishes for the nomination. Vensatry (ping) 16:35, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
Happens. And, thanks for your wishes. Btw, Krimuk90 pointed out that the prose requires more polishing and I find myself nodding in acceptance. Since you were successful in your first attempt with FAC, can you spare a little time and help me better the prose quality? I ain't so fluent in English and my vocabulary is rather limited. So, pls. consider my request. Thanks. -- Sriram speak up 13:07, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the request, but I should admit that I'm not really comfortable working on film articles. Even during the Trichy FAC there were some minor objections about the quality of prose not being "professional". Luckily I got an editor who did a great job. Let's hope for the best! Vensatry (ping) 18:19, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Will asking a GOCE member personally get the job done? Because listing it at the GOCE may force us to wait longer. Kailash29792 (talk) 14:52, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
You may have to ask this to the "editor in your mind". Again, even if they agree it's not a guarantee that the prose will be up to FAC standards. Vensatry (ping) 16:10, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Good articles Future GAN Backlog Drive

Hello everyone! Hope you've all been having a great summer!

TheQ Editor recently proposed the idea of having another Backlog Drive in either September/October or November/December of this year. For those of you who have participated in the past two drives you know I was the one who organized them, however, come September, this will be my most important year in school so I will not be able to coordinate this drive (if it happens). TheQ Editor has volunteered to be a coordinator for the drive. If any of you would like to co-coordinator, please notify TheQ Editor on his talk page.

If you would be interested in participating in a Backlog Drive sometime before the end of this year, please notify TheQ Editor. Also, make sure to specify what month(s) work best for you.

At the time this message was sent out, the backlog was at 520 nominations. Since May, the backlog has been steadily increasing and we are currently near an all time high. Even though the backlog will not disappear over one drive, this drive can lead to several others which will (hopefully) lead to the day where there is no longer a backlog.

As always, the more participants, the better, and everyone is encouraged to participate!

Balu Mahendra

It would be fine to have filmography as director in table rather than a plain description... Please revert to table...or create a new page with filmography header as Director and cameraman Rajeshbieee (talk) 09:07, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

I don't think it's necessary. Having a table only to include year and name would be meaningless. Besides this, we don't know the exact chronological order of his old Malayalam films. Vensatry (ping) 18:00, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

GA Cup

Hello everyone! We hope you have all been having a great summer!

As we all know, the recent GAN Backlog Drives have not had any big impact on the backlog. Because of that, me (Dom497), Figureskatingfan, and TheQ Editor have worked on an idea that could possibly finally put a dent into the massive backlog. Now, I will admit, the idea isn't entirely ours as we have took the general idea of the WikiCup and brought it over to WikiProject Good Articles. But anyways, here's what we have in mind:

For all of you that do not know what the WikiCup is, it is an annual competition between several editors to see who can get the most Good Articles, Featured Article's, Did You Know's, etc. Based of this, we propose to you the GA Cup. This competition will only focus on reviewing Good articles.

For more info on the proposal, click here. As a FYI, the proposal page is not what the final product will look like (if you do go ahead with this idea). It will look very similar to WikiCup's page(s).

The discussion for the proposal will take place here. Please let us know if you are interested, have any concerns, things to consider, etc.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Asia Cup centuries, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mirpur. 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.

WikiProject Good Articles - GA Cup

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup
Symbol support vote.svg

WikiProject Good articles is holding a new competition, the GA Cup, from October 1, 2014 - March 28, 2015. The Cup will be based on reviewing Good article nominations; for each review, points will be awarded with bonuses for older nominations, longer articles and comprehensive reviews. All participants will start off in one group and the highest scoring participants will go through to the second round. At the moment six rounds are planned, but this may change based on participant numbers.

Some of you may ask: what is the purpose for a competition of this type? Currently, there is a backlog of about 500 unreviewed Good article nominations, almost an all time high. It is our hope that we can decrease the backlog in a fun way, through friendly competition.

Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors! Sign-ups will be open until October 15, 2014 so sign-up now!

If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the four judges.

Cheers from NickGibson3900, Dom497, TheQ Editor and Figureskatingfan.
