Another project idea -- sick of me yet?[edit]

Yo,

I know you eventually wanted to get the CCA article to GA status, and I'm going to start a page in my userspace to mark events in the anti-comics movement that will hopefully help me signpost my thesis a little better. Thought you would be interested in hearing about it. Etzedek24 (I'll talk at ya) (Check my track record) 18:53, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

I am interested! Have you ever read The Ten Cent Plague by David Hadju? It's a pretty thorough examination of the era from North's article through the implementation of the code. I found it to be a bit dry at times, but otherwise very informative. You might also find some useful stuff here - it has scans of lots of the old articles. Argento Surfer (talk) 19:09, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
Said as if Hajdu's book isn't sitting next to me and I don't have LOSTSoti open in another tab ;) If you haven't, you should check out Seal of Approval by Amy Kiste Nyberg--I can send you a copy if you don't have access. Nyberg is on my committee! Etzedek24 (I'll talk at ya) (Check my track record) 19:42, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
I read some of her book when it was excerpted in Alter Ego, and it's on my to-get list, but I'm currently on a self-imposed moratorium on buying new material until I get caught up on what I already have. I went on a buying binge earlier this year and have an intimidating stack to get through. Argento Surfer (talk) 20:02, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
@Etzedek24: - Is this something you want to eventually move to mainspace, or for personal reference? Do you want me to provide sources? Argento Surfer (talk) 13:19, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
I do want it in mainspace eventually. I have it in userspace as to avoid draft time deletion. Feel free to add anything you'd like. Etzedek24 (I'll talk at ya) (Check my track record) 14:34, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Changes to References in Underworld Unleashed, Neron (DC Comics) and Hell (DC Comics)[edit]

Well, I tried what you did to Reign in Hell (DC Comics)in Underworld Unleashed and all I got was the usual "invoked but never defined" routine. Remember, I'm not all that computer-literate, so I guess that you'll either have to do all three of them for me, as I asked, or show me, step by step, how to do them because the instruction pages you referred me to are all Greek to me. If you could please do this, it'd be a big help! Thank you.Malcolmlucascollins (talk) 23:49, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

@Malcolmlucascollins: I'll use Underworld Unleashed as an example.
Step 1: The first occurrence of the reference currently looks like this - <ref>''Flash'' (vol. 2) #125-129 (May-September 1997)</ref>. You need to insert a name in the first tag, so it looks like this - <ref name="Flash 125">''Flash'' (vol. 2) #125-129 (May-September 1997)</ref>
Step 2: Replace the second occurrence of the reference with this: <ref name="Flash 125"/>
I hope this helps. Argento Surfer (talk) 13:36, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

I just tried it on Neron (DC Comics) and I still got the "invoked but never defined" line. Please show me what I'm doing wrong.Malcolmlucascollins (talk) 19:39, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

You skipped step one. Step one is defining the reference. Step two is invoking it. Argento Surfer (talk) 12:40, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

I've tried to define it in every way possible and I can't do it. Same thing for Hell (DC Comics). Please just do it for me. I give up. I'm about as computer-savvy as a rock.Malcolmlucascollins (talk) 17:06, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

@Malcolmlucascollins: - it's a two step process. I provided the exact code to insert and told you where to insert it. If this is too complicated, then Wikipedia may not be the right place for you. Argento Surfer (talk) 12:29, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

I wrote down exactly the way that you did this on Underworld Unleashed on a piece of paper and tried it on the Neron (DC Comics) Reference and the two Hell (DC Comics) References and still got the "invoked but never defined" line. Please just look at the articles, see how I did them and fix them if you can. This is how I wrote it down on the paper: <ref name="title number"/>.

Step one just has the name inserted, but still needs the information about the comic - <ref name="title number">Title #</ref>
Step two is only the name - <ref name="title number"/>
Only step two uses a slash (/) after the name. Argento Surfer (talk) 18:36, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Okay, I did it like you said to do it, but now the information is in the main text and the "invoked but never defined" line is still there in the References. Do I have to add or subtract anything else? In short, how close am I to being right here as of now?Malcolmlucascollins (talk) 20:40, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

If you're getting that message, you're doing step one incorrectly. Argento Surfer (talk) 12:30, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Additions to above message[edit]

In case you've forgotten, the changes are:

  • Underworld Unleashed - References 56 and 73 merged into 56ab
  • Neron (DC Comics) - References 6 and 7 into 6ab
  • Hell (DC Comics) - References 17 and 19 into 17ab & References 94 and 95 into 94ab.

Again, any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thank you again.Malcolmlucascollins (talk) 00:00, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Unknown supervillains in Underworld Unleashed #1[edit]

One more thing. If you (or anyone else) could please tell me the names of these two supervillains in Underworld Unleashed #1 so that I can put them in the section "Supervillains who rejected Neron's offer", I'd really appreciate that, too.

They are:

  • Unknown supervillain on p. 30 (between Deadshot and the Cluemaster) and on p. 36, panel 1 (in the lower left hand corner and to the left of Poison Ivy),
  • Unknown supervillain colored light blue (probably in shadow) on p. 32, panel 5 (slightly above the Cheetah III).

Thanks again!Malcolmlucascollins (talk) 00:20, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

I finally figured out what I did wrong on the above subject! I had to remove the <ref> from between the ref name part and the title part. Thank you very much for your time and patience!

Now all I need to do is to identify these two supervillains and put them in the article section and I'm all set! Can you, or anyone else, please help me with this one? Thank you.Malcolmlucascollins (talk) 17:26, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Again, I really need help with these two supervillains. If you don't know who they are, can you direct me to someone who does know? I'd really like to put them it a.s.a.p..Malcolmlucascollins (talk) 23:49, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Is Carapax in Underworld Unleashed #1 or not?[edit]

Another question. Carapax the Indestructible Man is said in many sources to be in Underworld Unleashed #1 (I know of only one source that says he isn't-the DC Database), but if he is, where is he? I've searched pp. 30-31 from top to bottom, but can't find him. Can you (or anyone else) show me where he is in this issue? Thanks.Malcolmlucascollins (talk) 12:33, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

I'm not an expert on DC minutia. I can't help with this. Argento Surfer (talk) 12:37, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

That's okay; I just thought I'd ask. Do you know of anyone else who might know about this?Malcolmlucascollins (talk) 02:33, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

WikiCup 2018 September newsletter[edit]

The fourth round of the 2018 WikiCup has now come to an end. The eight users who made it to the final round had to score a minimum of 422 points to qualify, with the top score in the round being 4869 points. The leaders in round 4 were:

  • South Carolina Courcelles scored a magnificent 4869 points, with 92 good articles on Olympics-related themes. Courcelles' bonus points alone exceeded the total score of any of the other contestants!
  • Hel, Poland Kees08 was second with 1155 points, including a high-scoring featured article for Neil Armstrong, two good topics and some Olympics-related good articles.
  • Scotland Cas Liber, with 1066 points, was in third place this round, with two featured articles and a good article, all on natural history topics.
  • Other contestants who qualified for the final round were Marshall Islands Nova Crystallis, Republic of Texas Iazyges, Cascadia (independence movement) SounderBruce, Wales Kosack and United States Ceranthor.

During round four, 6 featured articles and 164 good articles were promoted by WikiCup contestants, 13 articles were included in good topics and 143 good article reviews were performed. There were also 10 "in the news" contributions on the main page and 53 "did you knows". Congratulations to all who participated! It was a generally high-scoring and productive round and I think we can expect a highly competitive finish to the competition.

Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 4 but before the start of round 5 can be claimed in round 5. Remember too that you must claim your points within 10 days of "earning" them. If you are concerned that your nomination will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. It would be helpful if this list could be cleared of any items no longer relevant. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck, and let the best editor win!

Shared control = cooperation?[edit]

Is it just me or does

... shared control of at least 70% ...

sound like the two companies were "in cooperation"?

While clumsy, the [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Milton_Griepp&diff=prev&oldid=855028910 prior construction] was a bit clearer in regards to competition. I'd love something that made it plain that "... the two competitors together controlled 70% ...", even if I can't think how to say it. Shenme (talk) 02:38, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

DYK QPQ[edit]

Hi Argento Surfer. About a month ago, you approved Edel-optics.de Arena at DYK here, saying it was good to go. At the time, the article looked like this. Did you check the article before passing the hook? The infobox hadn't been fully translated, and the text was machine-translation gobbledygook. I've just copyedited it now, as it is about to appear on the main page tomorrow, which would have been embarrassing. Fish+Karate 14:11, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

I don't remember that one specifically, but I either overlooked it or failed to save a correction. Thanks for letting me know. Argento Surfer (talk) 14:21, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Updated DYK query.svgOn 14 September 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article The Accelerators (comics), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status.

You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, The Accelerators (comics)), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

Hello Argento Surfer, 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.
Other
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).

Go here to remove your name if you wish to opt-out of future mailings. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:11, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
