The Good Terrorist scheduled for TFA[edit]

This is to let you know that the The Good Terrorist article has been scheduled as today's featured article for 8 February 2017. If you're interested in editing the main page text, you're welcome to do so at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/February 8, 2017. Thanks! Jimfbleak - talk to me? 15:05, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

@Jimfbleak: Thank you for selecting this article for TFA. The summary looks fine, but perhaps there should be a (pictured) after "Doris Lessing" and the image captioned with "Doris Lessing". —Bruce1ee 17:48, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
Hi, the article summary will be trimmed a little more to around 1100+/-100 characters, you don't have to do that, but you can get involved if you wish. Although there is a caption in the code, it isn't displayed at TFA Jimfbleak - talk to me? 19:26, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
OK, thanks. —Bruce1ee 21:18, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for covering the book "concerning a naïve woman who moves in with a group of radicals in London, and is drawn into their terrorist activities"! Remember DYK days, fondly, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:13, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

My pleasure Gerda, I enjoyed working on it. I haven't been active in DYK for a while now – maybe I'll revist it again soon. —Bruce1ee 10:34, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Acne vulgaris/archive2[edit]

While I did not add additional comments since January 2017, I had been following the Acne FAC. I think it could be a FA someday, but still needs significant work. As I am somewhat semi-retired from Wikipedia, next time it goes up for a FAC, should you think of me, please email me and I will post a review again. Thank you! (just fyi: I am putting a similar note on a few user pages) --My Core Competency is Competency (talk) 13:50, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

My involvement in that FAC was minimal, and then only as a non-medical layreader. But I'll keep you in mind should the article be renominated. Thanks. —Bruce1ee 14:19, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Acne listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Acne. Since you had some involvement with the Acne redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. --My Core Competency is Competency (talk) 19:49, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

Editor of the Week[edit]

Editor of the week barnstar.svg Editor of the Week
Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week for your long-term article work. Thank you for the great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)

User:Buster7 submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week:

One of the challenges of facilitating EotW is making sure we have an editor in the Que for the following week. When we run short, I start to wander around WP looking for a likely candidate by using a very random but time tested method of discovery----chance. But chance often leads to very worthy and deserving people to nominate. Bruce1ee, a regular and consistent contributor since the very beginning of WP, is a fine and worthy discovery. With 70K in edits with 2/3rds to article mainspace and 100% usage of the edit summary and almost 80 DYK contributions, he displays a true workmanlike demeanor. Reading his talk page archives show an editor that is congenial and helpful to all that have visited his talk page over the years. A WikiGnome he has been the key author on dozens of articles about bands, musicians, albums, songs, literary authors and their works, etc. He has been editing and refining and collaborating on a Featured Article, Burger's Daughter, since it was created in 2010. Bruce1ee is a great example for all Wikipedia editors, old and new.

@Buster7 and Lepricavark: thank you for considering me, I really appreciate it. —Bruce1ee 07:16, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

On this day, 12 years ago...[edit]

Balloons-aj.svg Hey, Bruce1ee. I'd like to wish you a wonderful First Edit Day on behalf of the Wikipedia Birthday Committee! Have a great day! Face-smile.svg

Also, congratulations on receiving the Editor of the Week award! Thanks for all that you do. Warm regards, Mz7 (talk) 04:01, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

Thank you very much. So I've been at it for 12 years! – but hey, I've enjoyed it. —Bruce1ee 07:14, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
