Bangerz[edit]

Hi, WikiRedactor, I was doing some cleanup at Bangerz and noticed you left this hidden message regarding edits that list the song "4x4" as a single without sources: "ADDING "4x4" IS CONSIDERED VANDALISM WITHOUT A RELIABLE SOURCE." Please remember that while continually reverting unsourced or improperly sourced content can be frustrating, we should assume good faith with editors who may not be familiar with all of our policies. Vandalism refers only to edits that are intentionally disruptive. –Chase (talk / contribs) 22:06, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

And while I'm here, did you get my ping at Talk:Beautiful (Mariah Carey song)? I had to use Template:Reply to twice as there were more than 7 contributors to the original discussion but I'm not sure if that works or not. –Chase (talk / contribs) 22:20, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
@Chasewc91: My apologies, I did not mean to give the wrong impression on the Bangerz article. And yes, I did receive your ping! WikiRedactor (talk) 15:07, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
Hey! Not to sound annoying, but if you get a chance, could you drop by the Mariah discussion? It's been 2.5 weeks since I launched it and notified all of the contributors and there's hardly been any comment. I'm also going to notify the other editors I pinged who have been active since July 3. –Chase (talk / contribs) 04:01, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

FA comment[edit]

Hello WikiRedactor. If you have some spare time these days, can you take a look at Megadeth, an FA candidate of mine? The review is here, so I'll be grateful if you can leave your comment/vote whether the article deserves to attain FA status. Cheers.--Retrohead (talk) 22:41, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Merge discussion[edit]

Hi WikiRedactor. A few days back, I had proposed that Body Language Live be merged into Money Can't Buy. Unfortunately, it is a rather obscure article and its talk page is rarely visited. I think it will never reach consensus at this rate. To add to that, I cannot wait for 30 days to make a bold merge since I've got the new article ready in my sandbox. I'm not aiming to canvas at all, but I hope you can review the proposal and give your opinion. Thanks! --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 15:34, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for giving your input. By the way I made a suggestion on the Lana Del Ray album discussion that you pointed out to me --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 17:53, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
@WonderBoy1998: Ooh thank you, I'll go take a look! WikiRedactor (talk) 18:10, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Re: Electra Heart[edit]

Just a thank you (and congrats!) for your work on this article. Love the album! ----Another Believer (Talk) 18:04, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

@Another Believer: Thanks so much, I appreciate it! Face-smile.svg WikiRedactor (talk) 18:48, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Soliciting comment...[edit]

Hi! Would you care to review my FA nomination for the article Of Human Feelings? The article is about a jazz album by Ornette Coleman, and the criteria for FA articles is at WP:FACR. If not, feel free to ignore this message. Cheers! Dan56 (talk) 05:09, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Electra Heart[edit]

Incredible job with your most recent FA, Electra Heart! And, shall we continue with Christina Aguilera? Seems like I am the only contributor recently. But if you are so busy with other projects, then it'll be alright. Simon (talk) 14:10, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

@: Thanks so much! My apologies about the Xtina article, for some reason I didn't get any pings from over there, I'll get to the article momentarily! WikiRedactor (talk) 21:02, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Great news[edit]

Got some great news! WikiProject Shakira has a second good topic! Yup, Sale el Sol is now a good topic (here)! I am very happy, considering it had a good number of large articles and it took me nearly a year. This is great. WP:SHAKIRA is giving other projects a run for their money, at least when it comes to good topics. Thanks! --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 08:12, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

@WonderBoy1998: Congratulations with the new GT! You've done great things for WikiProject Shakira, and it's very exciting that the public can see them too! WikiRedactor (talk) 15:01, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Hey WikiRedactor! Whenever you have time, consider commenting on Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/Shakira discography/archive1. This can be a milestone. Thank you! --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 15:48, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

A user reverted my edits on the page and restored the old version. Please look at the new version --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 18:51, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Wikicup semifinalists interview request[edit]

As you may know, I write for the Signpost, basically Wikipedia's newsletter. I'd like to do a feature on the semifinalists, would you be willing to provide, say, 250 to 500 words saying: (1.) Why did you join the Wikicup? (2.) What you you hope to get out of it? and (3.) Which of your contributions to the Wikicup are your favourites?

Not quite sure how I'll order them - I'll probably make the ed17 decide, as, you know, Conflict of Interest: I am a semifinalist. I'd imagine point order or alphabetical or the like.

Can you please reply at Wikipedia:Wikipedia Signpost/2014-07-30/Wikicup#WikiRedactor? Thanks! Adam Cuerden (talk) 00:26, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Last-minute polishing[edit]

WikiRedactor, I'm taking Katy Perry to FAC tomorrow. If all goes well, she'll reach FA in time to be "Today's Featured Article" for her 30th birthday this upcoming October 25th! Any pre-FAC suggestions you have should be left on her talk page. SNUGGUMS (talk · contribs) 20:21, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Here is her FAC. SNUGGUMS (talk · contribs) 21:09, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Iggy Azalea discography[edit]

Hey WikiRedactor, would you mind leaving some comments here? Thanks, Simon (talk) 09:06, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Categories for discussion[edit]

Hi, I closed Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2014 July 5#Category:Albums produced by Mike WiLL Made It with no action, as you had not tagged the category page. The latter is necessary so that interested editors can find out that the discussion is taking place.

If you find that the instructions at WP:CFD are not clear, please let me know which parts have a problem.

As the article has not been renamed, you could make a Speedy nomination to rename the category to match it (justification = C2D), which has already happened with the other category that you nominated on July 5. – Fayenatic London 13:48, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

I've renamed that one now, but without the hyphen. – Fayenatic London 18:44, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

I second this. Congrats! pedro | talk 23:07, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Nicki Minaj[edit]

I don't think Remy Ma and Foxy brown can be included as a beef, as naturally beef is between more than one party. Foxy made those comment and Nicki never responded and Remy made one comment in jest which was the end of that, too, with no comments from Minaj. It seems like unnecessary KB that can just be taken out entirely. Kane (talk) 23:49, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

@KaneZolanski: Good point, I'll remove Remy. Thanks so much for helping get this revamping process moving! Face-smile.svg WikiRedactor (talk) 14:47, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
It's fine! The article was on the verge of reassessment, It needed to be revamped. I am going to start looking for more information to be included in the 2014 section, considering Minaj is currently into her era it is rather brief and doesn't exactly include a rounded encyclopaedic summary of Minaj's year thus far. If you need any help or have any queries just give me a shout. Face-smile.svg Kane (talk) 18:42, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
@KaneZolanski: Yes it would be great to get more information for 2014, I look forward to working together and getting this article back on track! WikiRedactor (talk) 19:33, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

I stumbled upon your sandbox and saw that you had the foresight to start the article for Miley's 5th album already! You deserve this for your hard work on Miley related articles! Good job! :) CyrockingSmiler (talk) 11:57, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Successful FA[edit]

Thanks to your help, Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson is now a featured article :'D! Couldn't have done it without you. Snuggums (talk / edits) 02:04, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

@SNUGGUMS: Congratulations! I'm very happy to see all of your hard work being recognized! WikiRedactor (talk) 17:53, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
I myself am stoked! Now to get her as TFA this upcoming October 25th..... Snuggums (talk / edits) 18:19, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
@SNUGGUMS: Yes it will be awesome to have the article as the TFA on her birthday! If for whatever reason that date doesn't work out, you could pick October 18/22 because it will have been a year since Prism was released. WikiRedactor (talk) 18:22, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Good back-up ideas :), though I'm hoping for her birthday. Snuggums (talk / edits) 18:24, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
@SNUGGUMS: Yes I'm sure that you'll make sure the request is in on time, and that there is a good chance that the article will on the front page for the big 3-0! Face-smile.svg WikiRedactor (talk) 18:27, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

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! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.
