Changes to the WP:1.0 assessment scheme[edit]

As you may have heard, we at the Wikipedia 1.0 Editorial Team recently made some changes to the assessment scale, including the addition of a new level. The new description is available at WP:ASSESS.

  • The new C-Class represents articles that are beyond the basic Start-Class, but which need additional references or cleanup to meet the standards for B-Class.
  • The criteria for B-Class have been tightened up with the addition of a rubric, and are now more in line with the stricter standards already used at some projects.
  • A-Class article reviews will now need more than one person, as described here.

Each WikiProject should already have a new C-Class category at Category:C-Class_articles. If your project elects not to use the new level, you can simply delete your WikiProject's C-Class category and clarify any amendments on your project's assessment/discussion pages. The bot is already finding and listing C-Class articles.

Please leave a message with us if you have any queries regarding the introduction of the revised scheme. This scheme should allow the team to start producing offline selections for your project and the wider community within the next year. Thanks for using the Wikipedia 1.0 scheme!

Wikipedia 0.7 articles have been selected for German cinema[edit]

Wikipedia 0.7 is a collection of English Wikipedia articles due to be released on DVD, and available for free download, later this year. The Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team has made an automated selection of articles for Version 0.7.

We would like to ask you to review the articles selected from this project. These were chosen from the articles with this project's talk page tag, based on the rated importance and quality. If there are any specific articles that should be removed, please let us know at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.7. You can also nominate additional articles for release, following the procedure at Wikipedia:Release Version Nominations.

A list of selected articles with cleanup tags, sorted by project, is available. The list is automatically updated each hour when it is loaded. Please try to fix any urgent problems in the selected articles. A team of copyeditors has agreed to help with copyediting requests, although you should try to fix simple issues on your own if possible.

We would also appreciate your help in identifying the version of each article that you think we should use, to help avoid vandalism or POV issues. These versions can be recorded at this project's subpage of User:SelectionBot/0.7. We are planning to release the selection for the holiday season, so we ask you to select the revisions before October 20. At that time, we will use an automatic process to identify which version of each article to release, if no version has been manually selected. Thanks!

Article alerts[edit]

This is a notice to let you know about Article alerts, a fully-automated subscription-based news delivery system designed to notify WikiProjects and Taskforces when articles are entering Articles for deletion, Requests for comment, Peer review and other workflows (full list). The reports are updated on a daily basis, and provide brief summaries of what happened, with relevant links to discussion or results when possible. A certain degree of customization is available; WikiProjects and Taskforces can choose which workflows to include, have individual reports generated for each workflow, have deletion discussion transcluded on the reports, and so on. An example of a customized report can be found here.

If you are already subscribed to Article Alerts, it is now easier to report bugs and request new features. We are also in the process of implementing a "news system", which would let projects know about ongoing discussions on a wikipedia-wide level, and other things of interest. The developers also note that some subscribing WikiProjects and Taskforces use the display=none parameter, but forget to give a link to their alert page. Your alert page should be located at "Wikipedia:PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.

Message sent by User:Addbot to all active wiki projects per request, Comments on the message and bot are welcome here.

Thanks. — Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 09:11, 15 March, 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Article Incubator/List of German actors (from 1895 to the present)[edit]

I just incubated this article, but have little interest in thse subject. Any assistance on this article would be appreciated. Does anyone in this project know an editor who is a big fan of German cinema who maybe interested? Please let them know. Thanks. Ikip (talk) 15:21, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Annemarie Düringer[edit]

I saw that this was on your want-list; I've gone and stubbed it because she was in a film I watched not too long ago. Just thought I'd alert you in case you'd like to expand it. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 19:01, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

WP 1.0 bot announcement[edit]

This message is being sent to each WikiProject that participates in the WP 1.0 assessment system. On Saturday, January 23, 2010, the WP 1.0 bot will be upgraded. Your project does not need to take any action, but the appearance of your project's summary table will change. The upgrade will make many new, optional features available to all WikiProjects. Additional information is available at the WP 1.0 project homepage. — Carl (CBM · talk) 03:21, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Unreferenced living people articles bot[edit]

User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects provides a list, updated daily, of unreferenced living people articles (BLPs) related to your project. There has been a lot of discussion recently about deleting these unreferenced articles, so it is important that these articles are referenced.

The unreferenced articles related to your project can be found at >>>Wikipedia:WikiProject Film/German cinema task force/Unreferenced BLPs<<<

If you do not want this wikiproject to participate, please add your project name to this list.

Thank you. Okip 02:47, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

New articles related to German cinema of the 1930s[edit]

Over the last month, I have created a number of new articles based on (admittedly wretched) translations of the German Wikipedia articles. I would like to enlist the help of those with a better command of German than mine to improve these articles related to German cinema of the 1930s.

Any help in improving the translation or expanding these articles would be much appreciated.

VHS and DVD versions of Jud Süß (1940 film)[edit]

I am working on getting Jud Süß (1940 film) up to FA status. The following text has been flagged as unsourced:

The film has been available for sale on VHS in the United States at least since 1983 (the copyright date on a commercially marketed video cassette). In 2008, a digitally restored subtitled DVD became generally available online with commentary by film historian Eric Rentschler.

The DVD is available through Amazon but the Amazon online catalog is not really the ideal source for the above text. I'm pretty sure that the supporting info I need can be found in Shell Shock Cinema: Weimar Culture and the Wounds of War; by Anton Kaes but the relevant pages (pp. 256-258) are not available via Google Books preview. Can anyone help?

Women's History Month is in March[edit]

She-wikipedian.jpg

Hi everyone at WikiProject German cinema!

Women's history month is around the corner, in March, and we're planning the second WikiWomen's History Month.

This event, which is organized by volunteers from the WikiWomen's Collaborative, supports improving coverage about women's history during the month of March. Events take place both offline and online. We are encouraging WikiProjects to focus on women's history related to their subject for the month of March. Ideas include:

  • Improving coverage about German women filmmakers, actors, directors, producers, and executives
  • Developing content about women owned German film businesses

We hope you'll participate! You can list your your project focus here, and also help improve our to-do list. Thank you for all you do for Wikipedia! SarahStierch (talk) 21:48, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

DVD cover image?[edit]

I'm fairly new contributor to wikipedia and have a question about adding an image to an article on German film. I wanted to add an image to Der Verlorene, one of my personal favorites, but I don't really know the legal guidelines for images. Would the cover of a DVD copy (from a website) be covered under fair use? I also have some images copied from original 1951 German newspapers (articles and advertisements) that I previously used in my dissertation. They are admittedly poor quality printouts from microfilm, but there might be fewer legal issues with using those. Would those be better? What exactly are the guidelines for using images from films or advertisements of films? --TheCookTravels (talk) 00:40, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
