Some questions[edit]

What does it take to be a good editor? Are you a science nerd? What features make hurricanes interesting? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stan12398 (talkcontribs) 02:05, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Kinda a irrelevant question, but are you looking forward for the 2015 American Pan am games, held in Toronto, Canada? (Crack mayor is on leave) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stan12398 (talkcontribs) 02:20, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Then, (excuse my language) where the hell is the forum? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stan12398 (talkcontribs) 02:32, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Don't post rude edit summaries[edit]

I am not the one who placed the fatality count, but don't be rude. Dustin (talk) 03:27, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

@Dustin V. S.: That wasn't rude at all...—CycloneIsaac (Talk) 03:48, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
@CycloneIsaac: Yeah, it was. I would consider "Learn to count" to be a rude edit summary. The proper edit summary would have been something along the lines of "fixing death count" or something similar. It doesn't matter whether or not Yellow Evan was joking or something; on the internet, nobody can tell the difference. Dustin (talk) 03:51, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
I would not. I try to be a bit creative with edit summaries without trying to hurt. This is the primary reason why I put that edit summary down FTR. It wasn't directed towards him/her, so I don't get the big deal here. YE Pacific Hurricane 03:55, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
I didn't see that; still, you shouldn't talk like that to random IP editors. They don't know you, so may get the wrong impression. That's the main reason I brought this up. Dustin (talk) 03:59, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
It wasn't directly towards them though. It wasn't a personal attack. Don't be so sensitive :P YE Pacific Hurricane 04:02, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
All I am saying is I think you should have given your edit summary more thought, that's all. It makes it sound like you're calling people illiterate. In any case, I no longer see any point in continuing this discussion (at least for now). Dustin (talk) 04:10, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

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!

On Hurricane Arthur...[edit]

On Hurricane Arthur, I must just say sorry if I appear to be aggressive or something. I just really don't like being reverted (at least when there isn't an edit summary) because I try to leave edit summaries on my reverts. I must also say that I do not understand what you meant here. By the way, on a different matter, what did you use to revert me? It said "Reverted edits by Dustin V. S.(talk) to last version by Cloudchased", which doesn't appear to be the same as regular undo or Twinkle. In any case, I am sorry if I come off in a bad way; that's a place I need to improve in. Thank you for leaving an edit summary that time, although I should have brought it up on the talk page first anyway. Dustin (talk) 22:19, 6 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#Yellow Evan? Thanks! Adam Cuerden (talk) 00:25, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Hey...[edit]

...thanks alot for helping cut down the article. I am sorry if I have come off in a bad way; I might explain more later, but regardless, I thought I would say that I included those public advisories as they had the value in km/h (the discussions only have knots and mph), but if you don't think they are necessary, it's fine.

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!
