Joan Benson[edit]

Hi AB. I could use your help with the Joan Benson article that I started yesterday. I can keep plugging away on my own and do OK, but I think you know a great deal more about music and music-related articles on Wikipedia than I. What, for example, is a reliable source for the data about CDs that someone has performed for? If you're busy with other things, no problem. Finetooth (talk) 06:48, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

@Finetooth: Sure! AllMusic is considered a reliable source, though it certainly does not contain all music, so Benson may appear on other recordings not listed in the database. I did, however, add the two recordings listed for Benson at AllMusic to her Wikipedia article. Of course, the regular reliable sources like newspapers and journals suffice. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:46, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks a bunch. I responded on the Benson talk page. Finetooth (talk) 20:22, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 1[edit]

Hi! Thank you for subscribing to the WikiProject X Newsletter. For our first issue...

Has WikiProject X changed the world yet? No.

We opened up shop last month and announced our existence to the world. Our first phase is the "research" phase, consisting mostly of reading and listening. We set up our landing page and started collecting stories. So far, 28 stories have been shared about WikiProjects, describing a variety of experiences across numerous WikiProjects. A recurring story involves a WikiProject that starts off strong but has trouble continuing to stay active. Most people describe using WikiProjects as a way to get feedback from other editors. Some quotes:

  • "Working on requested articles, utilising the reliable sources section, and having an active WikiProject to ask questions in really helped me learn how to edit Wikipedia and looking back I don't know how long I would have stayed editing without that project." – Sam Walton on WikiProject Video Games
  • "I believe that the main problem of the Wikiprojects is that they are complicated to use. There should be a a much simpler way to check what do do, what needs to be improved etc." – Tetra quark
  • "In the late 2000s, WikiProject Film tried to emulate WP:MILHIST in having coordinators and elections. Unfortunately, this was not sustainable and ultimately fell apart." – Erik

Of course, these are just anecdotes. While they demonstrate what is possible, they do not necessarily explain what is typical. We will be using this information in conjunction with a quantitative analysis of WikiProjects, as documented on Meta. Particularly, we are interested in the measurement of WikiProject activity as it relates to overall editing in that WikiProject's subject area.

We also have 50 people and projects signed up for pilot testing, which is an excellent start! (An important caveat: one person volunteering a WikiProject does not mean the WikiProject as a whole is interested; just that there is at least one person, which is a start.)

While carrying out our research, we are documenting the problems with WikiProjects and our ideas for making WikiProjects better. Some ideas include better integration of existing tools into WikiProjects, recommendations of WikiProjects for people to join, and improved coordination with Articles for Creation. These are just ideas that may or may not make it to the design phase; we will see. We are also working with WikiProject Council to improve the directory of WikiProjects, with the goal of a reliable, self-updating WikiProject directory. Stay tuned! If you have any ideas, you are welcome to leave a note on our talk page.

That's all for now. Thank you for subscribing!

Your GA nomination of Oregon Theatre[edit]

The article Oregon Theatre you nominated as a good article has passed Symbol support vote.svg; see Talk:Oregon Theatre for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already been on the main page as an "In the news" or "Did you know" item, you can nominate it to appear in Did you know. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Cwmhiraeth -- Cwmhiraeth (talk) 10:01, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Congrats on the promotion. You've done an impressive number of GA articles, many about Portland. This one reminds me of Mary's Club. Finetooth (talk) 02:30, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 04:21, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
I chose to review this article because of your request for a reviewer at the WikiCup. However, you do not seem to have claimed the points for the GA in the Cup. The points should be enough to get you into the next round. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 06:00, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
@Cwmhiraeth: Thank you, again, for taking time to review the article. I had every intention of claiming points until I looked at the article's history again and feared I would be claiming points for work mostly conducted in December 2014. Yes, I did work on the article in January, but I didn't want to "cheat" the system. If you think enough work was put into the article this year, I will claim points and hope it is enough to move to the next round. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:24, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
My view is that you have done plenty in 2015 for the points to be claimable. If the judges disagree with me they could disallow the submission, but I'm sure they won't. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 18:14, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
Glad to hear! It won't be the end of the world if the points claimed are disputed... :) Thanks again! ---Another Believer (Talk) 18:15, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Notice of cut-paste move[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Ghosttown (Madonna song) a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Ghosttown (song). This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you. Steel1943 (talk) 02:36, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I was unable to move the page and I thought it was ok to copy+paste as long as you included the diff URL in the edit summary. Won't happen again. ---Another Believer (Talk) 06:33, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
No worries. Just wanted to make you aware of what problems those types of moves cause. As long as the {{Histmerge}} tag remains at the top of the page, the attribution issue should be fixed shortly. Steel1943 (talk) 07:19, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
No problem. I've not made any more edits to the page in case that helps make the merge process easier. ---Another Believer (Talk) 07:21, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 March newsletter[edit]

One of several of Godot13's quality submissions during round 1

That's it, the first round is done, sign-ups are closed and we're into round 2. 64 competitors made it into this round, and are now broken into eight groups of eight. The top two of each group will go through to round 3, and then the top scoring 16 "wildcards" across all groups. Round 1 saw some interesting work on some very important articles, with the round leader Australia Freikorp (submissions) owing most of his 622 points scored to a Featured Article on the 2001 film Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within which qualified for a times-two multiplier. This is a higher score than in previous years, as Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) had 500 points in 2014 at the end of round 1, and our very own judge, Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) led round 1 with 601 points in 2013.

In addition to Freikorp's work, some other important articles and pictures were improved during round one, here's a snapshot of a few of them:

You may also wish to know that The Core Contest is running through the month of March. Head there for further details - they even have actual prizes!

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. Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!
