Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 16,991 pages. We have worked hard to decrease from over 22,000, but more hard work is needed! Please consider reviewing even just a few pages a a day.

Technology update:

  • Rentier has created a NPP browser in WMF Labs that allows you to search new unreviewed pages using keywords and categories.

General project update:

  • The Wikimedia Foundation Community Tech team is working with the community to implement the autoconfirmed article creation trial. The trial is currently set to start on 7 September 2017, pending final approval of the technical features.
  • Please remember to focus on the quality of review: correct tagging of articles and not tagbombing are important. Searching for potential copyright violations is also important, and it can be aided by Earwig's Copyvio Detector, which can be added to your toolbar for ease of use with this user script.
  • To keep up with the latest conversation on New Pages Patrol or to ask questions, you can go to Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Reviewers and add it to your watchlist.

Your draft article, Draft:Vee Technologies[edit]

Hello, Avicennasis. It has been over six months since you last edited your Articles for Creation draft article submission, "Vee Technologies".

In accordance with our policy that Articles for Creation is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}} or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. Legacypac (talk) 05:50, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

G13 category change[edit]

FYI, Category:Candidates for speedy deletion as abandoned AfC submissions has been renamed to Category:Candidates for speedy deletion as abandoned drafts or AfC submissions in accordance to the change in the criteria. – Train2104 (t • c) 14:24, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

Moves and redirects ...[edit]

Hi, few days ago, after discussion and consensus, article "Catholicism" was moved to "Catholicism (term)", but it seems that none of the redirects were subsequently redirected to the new title, and now the article has no redirects at all. I saw that some, or maybe all of them, were actually redirected by this bot to another article, and thus several problems were created, since some of those redirects were used as links in many articles. There are several issues here, and it would be best to correct this situation simply by redirecting all of those redirects to the new title of the original article: Catholicism (term).

Guideline and policy news

Technical news

  • You will now get a notification when someone tries to log in to your account and fails. If they try from a device that has logged into your account before, you will be notified after five failed attempts. You can also set in your preferences to get an email when someone logs in to your account from a new device or IP address, which may be encouraged for admins and accounts with sensitive permissions.
  • Syntax highlighting is now available as a beta feature (more info). This may assist administrators and template editors when dealing with intricate syntax of high-risk templates and system messages.
  • In your notification preferences, you can now block specific users from pinging you. This functionality will soon be available for Special:EmailUser as well.

Arbitration

  • Applications for CheckUser and Oversight are being accepted by the Arbitration Committee until September 12. Community discussion of the candidates will begin on September 18.

AvicBot (make a tiny bit less touchy?)[edit]

I created a double redirect this evening that your bot corrected within one minute of creation. Very noble, but I had been considering redoing the middle link into a sort of disambiguation page. In the end I decided not to, but then found your bot had already been at work. I'd encourage you to have the bot wait a few minutes to make sure nothing else will happen before fixing something like this in the future. The existence of a double redirect for 5–10 minutes hurts nobody. Thanks for your consideration. StevenJ81 (talk) 04:38, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Currently there are 532 pages in the backlog that were created by non-autoconfirmed users before WP:ACTRIAL. The NPP project is undertaking a drive to clear these pages from the backlog before they hit the 90 day Google index point. Please consider reviewing a few today!

Technology update:

  • The Wikimedia Foundation is currently working on creating a new filter for page curation that will allow new page patrollers to filter by extended confirmed status. For more information see: T175225

General project update:

  • On 14 September 2017 the English Wikipedia began the autoconfirmed article creation trial. For a six month period, creation of articles in the mainspace of the English Wikipedia will be restricted to users with autoconfirmed status. New users who attempt article creation will now be redirected to a newly designed landing page.
  • Before clicking on a reference or external link while reviewing a page, please be careful that the site looks trustworthy. If you have a question about the safety of clicking on a link, it is better not to click on it.
