Rollback, edit summaries, and general decorum[edit]

Per WP:Rollback#When to use rollback, that user right is to be used only in certain specific cases. Fighting an edit war on behalf of your own edit is not one of them.

Per WP:SUMMARYNO, your recent edit summaries like "Only sourced to a lame-ass primary source" are inappropriate and uninformative. Actually, they are informative - not about your edit, but rather about your WP:RIGHTGREATWRONGS approach - along with your talk page statements like "Removing primary source crap" and "tabloid crap". -- Netoholic @ 17:14, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Isatis japonica[edit]

Hi! Your new redirect, Isatis japonica is not found anywhere in the article it directs to. Could you elaborate its position in the main article so the redirect is viable? Thanks! SEMMENDINGER (talk) 03:49, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

Autopatrolled user right removed[edit]

Following our conversation on my talk page, I reviewed the last fifty articles you created. About 20% of them listed no sources at all, only had a list of external links ({{Taxonbar}}), or were otherwise inadequately referenced [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10]. As such I've removed the autopatrolled user right from your account. If you could please ensure that all your article creations in future conform to WP:V and the other core content policies, you can re-request the right at WP:PERM/A. – Joe (talk) 11:19, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

  • You might want to look into the consensus on populated places and species. Abductive (reasoning) 11:23, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
As I have said, notability isn't the concern here. It's that you're adding information without references. It's not a big issue but we rely on autopatrolled editors to create articles without any issues, otherwise they are likely never to be noticed or fixed. I don't think it's asking too much for you to simply cite where you got the information.
Also do note that you can continue creating articles exactly as before without autopatrolled, as 99% of editors do. Having your contributions looked at by a second pair of eyes isn't some sort of punishment. – Joe (talk) 11:29, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
"Not getting fixed" assumes that they're broken. "Not getting noticed" means nobody would have ever created the articles, which is contrary to the spirit of Wikipedia. Take for example, Port Moresby General Hospital. Before I created the article, Google didn't really index it at all. Now the sources are easy to find. Abductive (reasoning) 11:34, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

WikiCup 2018 July newsletter[edit]

The third round of the 2018 WikiCup has now come to an end. The 16 users who made it to the fourth round had at least 227 points. Our top scorers in round 3 were:

  • South Carolina Courcelles, a first time contestant, with 1756 points, a tally built largely on 27 GAs related to the Olympics
  • Scotland Cas Liber, our winner in 2016, with two featured articles and three GAs on natural history and astronomy topics
  • Cascadia (independence movement) SounderBruce, a finalist last year, with a variety of submissions related to transport in the state of Washington

Contestants managed 7 featured articles, 4 featured lists, 120 good articles, 1 good topic, 124 DYK entries, 15 ITN entries, and 132 good article reviews. Over the course of the competition, contestants have completed 458 GA reviews, in comparison to 244 good articles submitted for review and promoted. As we enter the fourth round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 3 but before the start of round 4 can be claimed in round 4. Please also remember that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them. When doing GARs, please make sure that you check that all the GA criteria are fully met. Please also remember that all submissions must meet core Wikipedia policies, regardless of the review process; several submissions, particularly in abstruse or technical areas, have needed additional work to make them completely verifiable.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article nominations, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove your name from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.
