Before you post...


Consider this checklist-
1) Have you been drinking excessively or eaten something toxic?
2) Are you in such a bad mood that you wouldn't hesitate to kill me?
3) Are you too deeply in love and excessively romantic right now?
If the answer to all the above is "yes", then please post later when these circumstances have come to pass! Thank you!

WikiCup 2014 March newsletter[edit]

A quick update as we are half way through round two of this year's competition. WikiCup newcomer Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) (Pool E) leads, having produced a massive set of featured pictures for Silver certificate (United States), an article also brought to featured list status. Former finalist Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) (Pool G) is in second, which he owes mostly to his work with historical images, including a number of images from Urania's Mirror, an article also brought to good status. 2010 champion Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) (Pool C) is third overall, thanks to contributions relating to naval history, including the newly featured Japanese battleship Nagato. Rhodesia Cliftonian (submissions), who currently leads Pool A and is sixth overall, takes the title for the highest scoring individual article of the competition so far, with the top importance featured article Ian Smith.

With 26 people having already scored over 100 points, it is likely that well over 100 points will be needed to secure a place in round 3. Recent years have required 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) and 100 (2010). Remember that only 64 will progress to round 3 at the end of April. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page; if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally. 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!

FA congratulations[edit]

Just a quick note to congratulate you on the promotion of Spinning Around to FA status recently. If you would like to see this (or any other FA) appear as "Today's featured article" soon, please nominate it at the requests page; if you'd like to see an FA on a particular date in the next year or so, please add it to the "pending" list. In the absence of a request, the article may end up being picked at any time (although with 1,311 articles in Category:Featured articles that have not appeared on the main page at present, there's no telling how long – or short! – the wait might be). If you'd got any TFA-related questions or problems, please let me know. BencherliteTalk 08:01, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup error[edit]

Hi there- this is just a quick note to apologise for a small but important mistake in the last WikiCup newsletter; it is not 64 users who will progress to the next round, but 32. J Milburn (talk) 18:39, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Another request[edit]

Hello WonderBoy! I was wondering if you could leave a comment for Lo Nuestro Award for Pop Album of the Year. You don't have to if you don't want (but it has Shakira!) ;) Oh, and congratulations on your first FA! =D Erick (talk) 22:41, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Laundry Service[edit]

First of all, I've been meaning to congratulate you for bringing "Spinning Around" to FA (I know I'm a couple weeks late, but better late than never!) It reminded me of one of our earlier conversations where you mentioned your interest in nominating Laundry Service next. I definitely recommend that you go through with that, because the article is in fantastic shape and would be a great example to model other Shakira album articles after! (And Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 is getting a little bit lonely as the only FA for the project and could use a friend!) smile WikiRedactor (talk) 20:02, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

@WikiRedactor: Haha thanks for that! And sure, I am just doing some final changes on the article and FA nominating it! --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 15:01, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, Arunav, "here to edit articles", for "the highest number of Shakira and Kylie Minogue GA articles on Wikipedia", for quality articles such as Spinning Around and She Wolf, for the wonder of gnomish work around your favourite topics, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!
