USyd editathon[edit]

Hi 97198, we met at the 2014 USyd Wikibomb - it was so helpful having you and other experienced wikipedians there. The Sydney Uni Press has just organized another similar editathon [1], and if you're free, I'm sure they'd appreciate your involvement. I'm hoping to help out at the 12pm session. --99of9 (talk) 06:40, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

@99of9: I'm not sure yet if I'll be able to make it but I'll try to be there. If not I'll be happy to help remotely by reviewing drafts, copyediting, etc. 97198 (talk) 12:37, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

05:48:29, 27 April 2017 review of submission by Nirajjvyas[edit]


Hey Sophie,

I noticed that you rejected our Christine Merlin page submission. You noted that she is not notable enough and that we simply cited her own work. I wanted to point out a few things already in the article:

  • Reference #4, 5, 10, 11, 15, and 16 are all studies performed by OTHER scientists. These scientists cite Merlin's work as a basis for their studies.
  • She is a member of the Society for Research on Biological Rhythms and Insect Genetic Technologies Research Coordination Network, in both of which she has given talks to other chronobiologists so that her information could be used to guide many other studies in the field.
  • She has developed new procedures and discovered physiological functions of the circadian clock in moths and butterflies (for which we have provided her papers AND secondary reviews by other researchers)

We have demonstrated in this page that she has made significant contribution to the field, her contributions are not only used by others in the field, but by a significant number of other scientists (reference #12 has been cited in over 250 other papers), and the impact of her contributions in detail.

It seems very evident that these points demonstrate her to be 'notable,' and we would like for you to consider a second, careful review. If you think she is still not 'notable,' then please provide a SPECIFIC example pertaining to Merlin that we can add to the article for approval. We've worked on this page for approximately three weeks in a university chronobiology class and we are absolutely stunned that she has been denied a page for a second time.

09:14:07, 13 May 2017 review of submission by Obriens86[edit]


The article that you're asking me to expand is 'first day of issue'. I've written about British first day covers and the term 'first day of issue' is reserved for Royal Mail postmarks. The first day of issue article is referring to American covers and American cultures. The process in Britain, along with Royal Mail, is unique to the UK, which is why I believe an article under the title First Day Covers should exist and should be separate to first day of issue.

Hi, you reviewed the Article zu Thomas Lambrecht. I don't understand why, because it's a translation of the German Wikipedia by Lambrecht himself. Is it because of missing Informationen about his research or publications? What would be helpful to not be rejected? Explain it to me please, because I don't know the specifics of the english Wiki and for the german one it's all fine.

Thanks, G.Kopfer

Lakeith Stanfield[edit]

FYI: As recent sources including Rotten, IMDB, GQ, Rolling Stone Mag use Lakeith Stanfield, I've moved the article from Keith Stanfield to Lakeith Stanfield. Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 22:23, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

@Jim1138: Thanks, good move. At the time I created the article he was mainly known as Keith but I see that has changed. 97198 (talk) 02:03, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

Filling DYK preps[edit]

97198, I wasn't sure whether you'd seen WT:DYK#Prep promoter needed, which was posted by Yoninah. It gives a couple of approved nominations that both she and Cwmhiraeth had been involved in, which neither can therefore promote (and they're our most frequent prep set builders). If you would consider giving them a look the next time you work on a prep set, that would be great. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 17:03, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

@BlueMoonset: Yes, I had seen that. I only promote hooks that I am confident meet all the DYK rules and that I think are interesting. I don't feel comfortable promoting either of those nominations because I don't think they are factually accurate. (Most of Christian Guzman's videos have well below 300,000 views and Beena Paul's film doesn't seem to have had an all-female crew.) Sorry. 97198 (talk) 01:55, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

Review?[edit]

Hi 97198, you have a lot of GA reviews, and I was wondering if you've seen City of Angels and would be willing to review it? I have three GACs on the go and I was hoping to get one done before having to move/start a new job after the long weekend. Ribbet32 (talk) 23:57, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

@Ribbet32: I haven't seen it but I might be able to review it. I'm very busy with real life commitments for the next few weeks so the earliest I'd be available to do a proper review would be late September. 97198 (talk) 05:07, 2 September 2017 (UTC)

DYK for Grant Liddle[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 17 September 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Grant Liddle, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status.

WikiProject Women in Red/The World Contest[edit]

Hi. Thankyou for your participation in the challenge series or/and contests. In November The Women in Red World Contest is being held to try to produce new articles for as many countries worldwide and occupations as possible. There will be over $4000 in prizes to win, including Amazon vouchers and paid subscriptions. If this would appeal to you and you think you'd be interested in contributing new articles on women during this month for your region or wherever please sign up in the participants section. If you're not interested in prize money yourself but are willing to participate and raise money to buy books about women for others to use, this is also fine. Thankyou, and if taking part, good luck!♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:28, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

Hook promotions[edit]

Hi, since both Cwmhiraeth and I worked on these nominations, could you help promote them to prep?

Thanks, Yoninah (talk) 19:55, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

@Yoninah: Sure, I just had a look and promoted both. 97198 (talk) 01:26, 2 October 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! Yoninah (talk) 16:24, 2 October 2017 (UTC)
Now I just had a look at the prep set. The "happy farm animals" hook really works a lot better with the image of the walking and talking pigs. I know we're running Alice in Wonderland in Prep 1; maybe you could move it to the image slot in Prep 4? Thanks, Yoninah (talk) 16:27, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi, I received a talk page entry at User talk:Myasuda#Dr. Sakaye Sugikawa from an IP user that is most likely meant for you.

Apologies[edit]

My apologies for tripping over you at Prep 4. This is the time of day when I often build sets and my monitor appeared to show me that Prep 4 was empty. If there were some hooks in the set I would look at the history to see if somebody was working on it, but in this instance it was empty so I didn't. Actually my computer display is sometimes misleading and caches the screenshot when I would rather it didn't, and thus gives me poor information. So I was just about to build Prep 4 before I realised you were doing so. I will work on Prep 5 instead. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 06:25, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

@Cwmhiraeth: Sorry about that! I only noticed your {{inuse}} template after I'd added the final hook. Hope it didn't inconvenience you too much. 97198 (talk) 06:32, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
No, I was only just starting. It might be a good thing another time to start by adding and saving one hook to indicate you are working on a set, and then I would know to avoid it. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 06:41, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is a vital function for policing the quality of the encylopedia, if you have not already done so, you must read the new tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the various deletion criteria. If you need more help or wish to discuss the process, please join or start a thread at page reviewer talk.

Douglas Vernon Hubble[edit]

Hi 97198, How are you? It cool to see that you are creating some articles. Lets take the points one by one. The article is about Hubble who was a giant of paediatric endocrinology, he wrote several papers when he was still relatively young, which gained him a national reputation. That is exactly which is written in Munks. It has not changed. Regarding the James Spence Medal. It's because of that I'm updating this article, to bring it up to standard. Sorry I removed the entry, it would have been put back in, when I reviewed the article later today. The infobox is only half done, I was planning to do the reset today. The bone of contention, is the way Munks records the abbreviations, which 10000's of munks articles are done this way. scope_creep (talk) 11:58, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi 97198, this is what your talking about, I copied a used infobox, from a previous article: author_abbrev_bot =paediatric. I couln't see it at first. It would have been caught in the article review. Lastly, the the most important point, which which is the statement, which will need to change, is He was forced to retire from Birmingham in 1968. He wasn't forced to retire. Its process. He retired. scope_creep (talk) 12:08, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

I think looking at your articles, which seem to be almost all medical in nature, the way that munks references the prizes and qualifications, needs to go. scope_creep (talk) 12:28, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

@Scope creep: I'm not entirely sure what you mean (I think some things may have been lost in translation, as it seems English isn't your first language). There is nothing wrong with the way Munk's Roll lists qualifications – all people on the roll have numerous qualifications which have different acronyms, but they should not be mistaken for prizes. For what it's worth, regarding your last message, I've been on Wikipedia for over 10 years and I've written hundreds of articles (listed here), only a small proportion of which are related to medicine. 97198 (talk) 12:37, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
Your right, My first language is Scots. How did you know :) Me too, except most of mine are military, and Scots history, and bays and lochs, of Scotland like this Strachur Bay article I'm doing. Found out last night that Chopin had visted the place for a week, in 1848, which is truly astounding. WP is vast. It's all islands of communication, in a vast ocean. Take a look at this article, which I made earlier: Alan Moncrieff. I plan to put the qualification, after the name in the lede, a.l.a the same as in this Moncrieff article, like Munks. scope_creep (talk) 12:58, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Hello 97198, thank you for your efforts in reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
The NPP backlog at the end of the drive with the number of unreviewed articles by creation date. Red is older than 90 days, orange is between 90 and 30 days old, and green is younger than 30 days.

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 3819 unreviewed articles, with a further 6660 unreviewed redirects.
  • We are very close to eliminating the backlog completely; please help by reviewing a few extra articles each day!

New Year Backlog Drive results:

  • We made massive progress during the recent four weeks of the NPP Backlog Drive, during which the backlog reduced by nearly six thousand articles and the length of the backlog by almost 3 months!

General project update:

  • ACTRIAL will end it's initial phase on the 14th of March. Our goal is to reduce the backlog significantly below the 90 day index point by the 14th of March. Please consider helping with this goal by reviewing a few additional pages a day.
  • Reviewing redirects is an important and necessary part of New Page Patrol. Please read the guideline on appropriate redirects for advice on reviewing redirects. Inappropriate redirects can be re-targeted or nominated for deletion at RfD.

New Page Review Newsletter No.10[edit]

Hello 97198, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

ACTRIAL:

  • ACTRIAL's six month experiment restricting new page creation to (auto)confirmed users ended on 14 March. As expected, a greatly increased number of unsuitable articles and candidates for deletion are showing up in the feed again, and the backlog has since increased already by ~30%. Please consider reviewing a few extra articles each day.

Paid editing

  • Now that ACTRIAL is inoperative pending discussion, please be sure to look for tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary.

Subject-specific notability guidelines

Nominate competent users for Autopatrolled

  • While patrolling articles, if you find an editor that is particularly competent at creating quality new articles, and that user has created more than 25 articles (rather than stubs), consider nominating them for the 'Autopatrolled' user right HERE.

News

  • The next issue Wikipedia's newspaper The Signpost has now been published after a long delay. There are some articles in it, including ACTRIAL wrap-up that will be of special interest to New Page Reviewers. Don't hesitate to contribute to the comments sections. The Signpost is one of the best ways to stay up date with news and new developments - please consider subscribing to it.
