Another Gallup request[edit]

Hi, AmericanAir88! I have posted a new request for Gallup (company) that you can see here. The request is to develop a new section focusing on Gallup's services, and raises the question of whether Gallup Poll should be split into its own standalone article. I'm interested to see what you think. A reminder: I have a financial conflict of interest, as I'm offering these updates on behalf of the company as part of my work with Beutler Ink, so I'm looking for other editors to review. I appreciate all the reviews you have done on the page so far. Do you have any time to also review this request? Thanks for considering, Danilo Two (talk) 12:55, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi, AmericanAir88! I don't mean to bother you, but I wanted to give you another friendly ping to see if you have any interest in reviewing my newest Gallup request. You've been a huge help in updating this article, and now that I'm closing in toward the end of my requests, I want to give you an opportunity to review. Of course, if you don't have the time, I can reach out to other editors as well. Thanks again for considering, Danilo Two (talk) 17:58, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
Hello again, AmericanAir88! An editor has declined this request at Gallup (company), but I would love to get your feedback on it as well since you have been so thorough in your previous reviews of my requests there. The reviewing editor cited no specific concerns with the content of my request, but rather general ones about COI editing. I still think the current article is troublesome because it largely focuses on one aspect of Gallup's business. You'll see my proposed updates cite independent, secondary sources. Of course, if you see any POV issues, I'm more than happy to adjust as necessary. I also posted a note to editor Rjensen, who said they would be willing to look at my request. Thank you again for considering, Danilo Two (talk) 20:50, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Monopoly (game)[edit]


The copy edit you requested from the Guild of Copy Editors of the afticle Monopoly (game) has been completed.

Do let me know if you have ny questions or concerns.

I know you are hoping for a "smooth" review for your GAN nomination. From a grammatical standpoint I think his will be the case. I did spend quite a bit of time trying to find citations for many unsourced statements with some success. I was not successful in every case, however, and this may prove a problem during the review. You should probably try to resolve the unsourced "issues" if you can before submitting your GAN. I also fixed the formatting of many citations so they are consistent with the rest of the article.

At 11,000+ words this article is a brute. Reviewers may balk at its length, but I cannot see how it can be shortened and still do the subject justice. Many sections have been spun off with articles of their own; I don't see anywhere else where this could be done to allow the original to be shortened.

With all that being said, best of luck with the GAN.

@Twofingered Typist: Thank you so much for this. I am also part of the GOCE but could not have the time to do this! This will get you far in the drive for sure. Thank you so much for this again. AmericanAir88(talk) 18:06, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

Draft:The Flash (season 1)[edit]

@Kailash29792: Accepted and properly added. I made your draft a redirect to the S1 article. AmericanAir88(talk) 02:01, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

DYK for SpongeBob SquarePants (season 9)[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 12 September 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article SpongeBob SquarePants (season 9), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that season 9 is the longest-running of SpongeBob SquarePants seasons, airing for four and a half years? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/SpongeBob SquarePants (season 9). You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, SpongeBob SquarePants (season 9)), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Congratulations for promoting SpongeBob SquarePants (season 9) to the Main Page, your first DYK! It got over 5,000 views, which means it is eligible to be added to the Stats page. See here. Congrats again! MX () 14:13, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

@MX: Thanks! Much appreciated. AmericanAir88(talk) 17:11, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Advice needed[edit]

Please check my contribution Draft:Roman Avdeev. This is a properly stated COI contribution. I would appreciate your advice on what needs to be improved and corrected. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 13:05, 16 September 2018 (UTC) @Bbarmadillo: Hello, try to make the article as unbiased as possible and take out things that do not need to be in the encyclopedia. For example, does wikipedia need to contain information that he is a vegetarian? Also try and incorporate the business career into prose instead of bullet points. Bullets look like you are giving positive traits.

Thank you AmericanAir88(talk) 14:14, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for your suggestions. I decided to keep his current assets as list to avoid too many details that are related to acquisitions, changes and so on. Otherwise it will be "bought in XXX" - "sold in XXX", too many details. Will remove some trivia per your advice. --Bbarmadillo (talk) 14:17, 16 September 2018 (UTC)


I removed your addition, because they way you worded it, it appeared as though I had posted it. Feel free to re-add it underneath my comment, and don't forget to add your signature. Cheers, North America1000 20:09, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

@Northamerica1000: Thank you for this, I forgot to add it underneath and sign it. Always can count on you. AmericanAir88(talk) 20:32, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

Hello AmericanAir88, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).

Inspired (Schools Group)[edit]

Hi there! I created Draft:Inspired (Schools Group). The article has been properly stated as a COI contribution. Thank you for reviewing the draft! I have cleaned it up of unnecessary biased language. Will you kindly advise on how to improve the style before I resubmit, in order for it to be moved into the public space? It would be much appreciated! -- Page Perigrination (talk) 07:57, 18 September 2018 (GMT+2)
