Hi. We're into the last five days of the Women in Red World Contest. There's a new bonus prize of $200 worth of books of your choice to win for creating the most new women biographies between 0:00 on the 26th and 23:59 on 30th November. If you've been contributing to the contest, thank you for your support, we've produced over 2000 articles. If you haven't contributed yet, we would appreciate you taking the time to add entries to our articles achievements list by the end of the month. Thank you, and if participating, good luck with the finale!
Thank you for the explanation. In case you have not followed the relevant discussion, this user is not a vandal. That term refers to a specific type of user who causes damage on purpose. Please remember to WP:AGF. The user here is a student in a educational project trying to constructively contribute to Wikipedia. She is sadly hampered by poor grammar and vocabulary skills, due to being an ESL. A more constructive approach, rather than just revert her and calling her a vandal, would be to proofread her edits (some content is useful, and well referenced) and report mistakes she does on her talk page, so she can understand why were are unhappy with some of her edits. PS. On second thought, I now agree with you that the crude oil part is nonsense and there is little to rescue from the source cited, so I am not going to restore anything there again. But I stand by my earlier comments - the errors you spotted are the result of poor English skills, not intentional vandalism. I pointed several examples on her talk page, feel free to add more. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:52, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
A request... :)
Hi! I noticed you edit a lot of Italian/geography articles from WikiProject: Italy I've been working on improving Lago di Bientina a large (now-drained) lake in Tuscany, but I'm still pretty new to Wikipedia and am not exactly confident in my work. It started out as one sentence and I've added a lot over the last few days. If you could take a look and give me some guidance, tips, or pointers, that would be awesome, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks! Ganesha811 (talk) 13:33, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
Editing News #2—2018
Since the last newsletter, the Editing Team has wrapped up most of their work on the 2017 wikitext editor and the visual diff tool. The team has begun investigating the needs of editors who use mobile devices. Their work board is available in Phabricator. Their current priorities are fixing bugs and improving mobile editing.
- The Editing team has published an initial report about mobile editing.
- The Editing team has begun a design study of visual editing on the mobile website. New editors have trouble doing basic tasks on a smartphone, such as adding links to Wikipedia articles. You can read the report.
- The Reading team is working on a separate mobile-based contributions project.
- The 2006 wikitext editor is no longer supported. If you used that toolbar, then you will no longer see any toolbar. You may choose another editing tool in your editing preferences, local gadgets, or beta features.
- The Editing team described the history and status of VisualEditor in this recorded public presentation (starting at 29 minutes, 30 seconds).
- The Language team released a new version of Content Translation (CX2) last month, on International Translation Day. It integrates the visual editor to support templates, tables, and images. It also produces better wikitext when the translated article is published. 
Let's work together
- The Editing team wants to improve visual editing on the mobile website. Please read their ideas and tell the team what you think would help editors who use the mobile site.
- The Community Wishlist Survey begins next week.
- If you aren't reading this in your preferred language, then please help us with translations! Subscribe to the Translators mailing list or contact us directly. We will notify you when the next issue is ready for translation. Thank you!

I will enrich you a bit: ;-)
- "myself" in "I felt myself enriched" is completely unnecessary.
- "smaller vocabulary" is much more common than "narrower vocabulary"
