CCI end in sight[edit]

I'm working on the Jansport87 CCI. Out of 800 plus entries, I think we are down to 12 remaining. Obviously, you've done far more than I have, this isn't a request for you to pitch in, just the opposite - I'd like you to have the "honor" of knocking off the last one (plus, I don't know how they are closed.) I'll continue to work on this on occasion today, but would like to let you close it.--S Philbrick(Talk) 13:14, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Down to nine.--S Philbrick(Talk) 14:22, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Down to six.--S Philbrick(Talk) 15:18, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Down to three!--S Philbrick(Talk) 15:41, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
One left!!--S Philbrick(Talk) 16:08, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Done!!! That one was moderately painful, due to the extremely high incidence of problems. I only did a handful, which leaves me in awe of your contributions. Thanks.--S Philbrick(Talk) 19:31, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Sockpuppetry[edit]

Greetings. I noticed that you recently blocked User:Obelixobelix for being a vandalism only account. Two IPs have been edit-warring and firing off blatant personal attacks at Durga Vahini. Rather than go to ANI or open an SPI, I thought it may be faster to come to you, so you may block them as ducks, if you see fit. They are certainly quacking pretty loudly; a glance at the article history should show that. Regards, Vanamonde93 (talk) 05:11, 9 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.

Message from Waynejayes[edit]

I don't believe Les Hammond meets the criteria for notability seeWP:NPOL He was a mayor but being mayor is not inherently "notable" according to Wikipedias criteria. I don't beleive he meets the criteria for general notability WP:GNG "A person is presumed to be notable if he or she has received significant coverage in multiple published secondary sources which are reliable, intellectually independent of each other, and independent of the subject."

WikiCup 2014 June newsletter[edit]

After an extremely close race, Round 3 is over. 244 points secured a place in Round 4, which is comparable to previous years- 321 was required in 2013, while 243 points were needed in 2012. Pool C's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Scotland Casliber (submissions) finished second overall, claiming three featured articles, including the high-importance Grus (constellation). Third place was Pool B's , whose contributions included featured articles Russian battleship Poltava (1894) and Russian battleship Peresvet. Pool C saw the highest number of participants advance, with six out of eight making it to the next round.

The round saw this year's first featured portal, with Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to Florida 12george1 (submissions) and the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This means that all content types have been claimed this year. Other contributions of note this round include a featured topic on Maya Angelou's autobiographies from Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions).

The judges would like to remind participants to update submission pages promptly. This means that content can be checked, and allows those following the competition (including those participating) to keep track of scores effectively. This round has seen discussion about various aspects of the WikiCup's rules and procedures. Those interested in the competition can be assured that formal discussions about how next year's competition will work will be opened shortly, and all are welcome to voice their views then. 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. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Fedora (operating system)[edit]

Hi Wizardman. The article was nominated for a GA by an anon, which is against the policies. I see that you delisted the nomination once, but another editor apparently reverted you (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Fedora_%28operating_system%29&action=history).

Hey, Wizardman. I'm hoping you can recall your source for this edit: [1].

Sause Bros. article[edit]

Hello, Wizardman. I have some newbie questions related to the Sause Bros. article I volunteered to write.

First, though, thanks for your work! I don't mean to add to the list of chores you do routinely to maintain WikiProject Companies. If there is someone else I should ask, please just let me know.

I've been working on a draft, here: User:Grand'mere Eugene/sandbox. I believe the draft is ready to move to article space, but I'm not sure how to proceed. I have left notes for the requestor, Ed manameans, but have heard nothing since Monday. What is the process if a "collaborator" just disappears in cyberspace? I'm also not clear on the mechanics of moving an article, since before I have always used the AfC process and experienced editors just moved my drafts.

Thanks for any advice you might offer. --Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 23:01, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Deleting Reynolds Beks Dagogo-Jack[edit]

Trophy.png Deleting Reynolds Beks Dagogo-Jack
Hello Wizardman, thanks for taking the time to edit my article "Reynolds Beks Dagogo-Jack".

However, I was dismayed that you ultimately deleted it, on grounds of "G12: Unambiguous copyright infringement: http://www.africarisingevent.com/page.cfm/Action=Visitor/VisitorID=99 and possibly other sources too." Please kindly note that text in the site mentioned was submitted as the official profile of the subject, from which same official source the Wikipedia article was derived: both came from my office (in the Presidential Task Force on Power, where I serve as Head, MIS & Knowledge Management (ng.linkedin.com/in/benjaminokoroafor/) (http://nigeriapowerreform.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=462&Itemid=332). Please there is no copyright infringement here.

Once again thank you for taking time out to give attention to the article. I was and am fully aware of the serious issue of copyright and I believed I gave enough references to back up my claim. I will need your kind assistance to restore the said article or provide whatever you require to establish copyright ownership. Bigbenonline (talk) 23:36, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

I pruned the listings up to the letter"I" using 3rd party sources as a filtering criterion.

Eli Whiteside[edit]

Thanks for the review! I made most of the corrections, but there were two I wasn't able to make as easily. I tried to find more other information on Whiteside, but like Brad Hennessey, he doesn't get much media attention, so I wasn't able to do much about the stat-heaviness. I'm sorry about that. As for the Blue Jays, I think he just went straight to waivers, without being designated for assignment. I can't find a single source that elaborates on it any more than that.

Disambiguation link notification for August 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Pat Seerey, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Dale Mitchell. 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 Future GAN Backlog Drive[edit]

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!

GA Deletion[edit]

Hey Wizard - noticed you deleted the nomination page for David Hudson (pioneer) at Talk:David Hudson (pioneer)/GA1. First time going through the process, so just wondering - are abandoned GA nominations deleted after a specific period of time? In this case, the reviewer offered to review by never got back to it (or me when I checked up on it). I suppose I'll just have to re-nominate then? Thanks! ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 03:25, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Scarborough Day School[edit]

Hey Wizardman,

I would be glad if you could review Scarborough Day School. I am willing to insert page numbers, and it should be relatively quick and easy too. Please would you assist me and review it?

Thank you.--ɱ (talk) 18:02, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
