Who is Me?
Hi there. My name is Eva bd. My real name is Georgia Evelyn Stants. I tried to retain a secret identity for a while, but eventually it came out. I'm a teacher outside of Wikipedia, and I've been here since 2006-02-09, though I edited pages for a couple months prior to that before registering as a user, and used Wikipedia for a couple months prior to that. Welcome to my disappointing Userpage. Mostly, it is simply a way for me to keep all of my projects in order. You can see them below. I am not perfect, so if I've made a mistake and you'd like to let me know, you can click on my talk page: Eva bd. You can also do so if you just want to say hello. To learn more about me, look here. You can also take a look at what wonderful things I'm working on in my SANDBOXES (1|2|3|4) and see my picture contributions from the Wikimedia Commons at this page! Enjoy!
Places to Which I've Been
To Do List
The following are things that I am either working on or hope to get to soon. This list is certainly not complete
Heraldry and Vexillology ToDoList
- Article assessment
- Check Category:Unassessed cricket articles for class and Category:Unknown-importance cricket articles for importance: see Assessment Department for details
- Update fair and unfair play, fast bowling, first-class cricket, googly, innings, leg break, limited overs cricket, not out, Pakistan Cricket Board, spin bowling, underarm bowling, wicket, and other fundamental articles classified by the WikiProject as high-importance so that they meet WP:Verifiability policy standards
- There is a toolserver based WikiProject Cricket cleanup list that automatically updates weekly to show all articles covered by this project which are marked with cleanup tags. (also available in one big list and in CSV format)
Upon encountering a Wikipedia page, pertaining to the word “Slog,” as it relates to sports terminology in the game of Cricket, I noticed a potential opportunity to assist in the clean-up of Stub-Class articles, as mentioned in the Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Cricket/to do Talk Page.
Based on my rudimentary, yet thought-provoking, perusal of the Wikipedia article in question, entitled, Slog, I have deduced that, as a result of the lack of much ostensibly substantial content, depth of knowledge of the subject matter, breadth of the representative material, as well as the lack of any verifiable citations notated within the article, that this article merits compulsory Review and/or Revision.
It is my belief that the page in question would be better purposed by Merging, or rather through incorporating the current page, Slog, into the following Cricket page, whose path is noted here, Cricket.
Allowing the approval of my request to Redirect or Merge the aforementioned page would help to assist in the overall clean-up of Stub Class articles, which will ultimately lead to greater effectiveness, and thus efficiencies.
Greater efficiencies would impact the following Wikipedia processes: 1) Reducing Server Resources, which would positively impact Costs 2) Reducing Potential Maintenance Costs, 3) Eliminate Redundancies (i.e., virtually the same semblance of the definition of “Slog” in Wiktionary, including WikiData), and 4) Utilizing a Top-Down methodology for the Creation and Maintenance of both Categories and Portals, within the auspices of Wikimedia’s intellectual property, for the informational databases and datasets. These suggestions would ultimately create a greater efficiency within the navigation of the Wikipedia Community.
Thank you you for the time you have taken to read this commentary, I look forward to hearing any comments or suggestions on my Talk Page User talk:Markhalsey
