Request for ArbCom Statement, re: User:Cassianto[edit]

Hello Calvin, an ArbCom request has been filed regarding Cassianto's toxic behavior regarding Infobox discussions, which I saw you've been a victim of. If you have anything to say about the effects of Cassianto's behavior on you, then I implore you to make a statement on the ArbCom page. --Volvlogia (talk) 02:51, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

@Volvlogia: Can I ask why this is happening/you have filed against him?  — Calvin999 10:09, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
You can read my full original AN report here, but I've found his behavior on talk pages to toxic and demoralizing bullying whenever the topic at hand is infoboxes. --Volvlogia (talk) 11:10, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
Okay, thanks.  — Calvin999 11:13, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

ArbCom Notice[edit]

You are involved in a recently filed request for arbitration. Please review the request at [[Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case#Cassianto behavior, per WP:5P4]] and, if you wish to do so, enter your statement and any other material you wish to submit to the Arbitration Committee. As threaded discussion is not permitted in most arbitration pages please ensure that you make all comments in your own section only. Additionally, the guide to arbitration and the Arbitration Committee's procedures may be of use.

Thanks,

Please note that I have removed your statement as it made assertions about other editors without providing evidence. You can find the content in the page history and please do feel free to restore it with links to diffs demonstrating what you describe. GoldenRing (talk) 14:03, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
@GoldenRing: Well, I did because the link to the talk page was included with how two others spoke to me as well.  — Calvin999 15:00, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
If you don't know what a diff is, see Help:Diff. A general link to a talk page is not useful as evidence. If you restore your statement again without diffs to support your accusations, you are likely to be blocked for disruptive editing. The removal is a clerk action and must not be undone. GoldenRing (talk) 15:53, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
@GoldenRing: It's an archived thread as long as your arm. The are tens of diffs, and I'm aware of what a diff is thank you. I reinstated my comment with the sentences about other people removed, which is what you were saying wasn't allowed without diffs in your comment above. The reinstated comment only commented about Cassianto, with a link to the thread which Volvlogia has also linked to. What else exactly do you want me to do?  — Calvin999 16:48, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
Hi, I have moved one of your comment to your section in this case request. Please comment in your own section only, thanks! Alex Shih (talk) 05:23, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

List of Airplay 100 number ones of the 2010s[edit]

Hi there! Maybe you have time to give some comments on my FLC above? Just overlook this if you are busy right now... Best regards, Cartoon network freak (talk) 15:25, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Cartoon network freak Hey, yes I will do. Could you also look at List of songs recorded by Mariah Carey please?  — Calvin999 17:20, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

List of songs recorded by Regine Velasquez[edit]

Hi Calvin999, I wanted to check if you would be able to provide feedback for a FLC, whenever you have time though. Would appreciate your review. Cheers! --Pseud 14 (talk) 04:36, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Pseud 14: yes. Would you mind looking at List of songs recorded by Mariah Carey please.  — Calvin999 09:30, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Calvin999, I'll be along for a review the your list too. Cheers! --Pseud 14 (talk) 09:52, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
Hi Calvin999, just checking if you would have time to provide your feedback on this Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of songs recorded by Regine Velasquez/archive1 Cheers! --Pseud 14 (talk) 13:41, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
Hey yes I forgot about this.  — Calvin999 09:38, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
No worries. Look forward to your comments. Cheers!--Pseud 14 (talk) 11:20, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

Katy Perry #1 Streak Broken by Bon Appetit[edit]

Hi, you are providing misinformation by refusing to allow to show that Katy Perry's streak of #1s on the Hot Dance Club Songs was ended by the fact that Bon Appetit reached #28 after Swish Swish. This truth is inherent and self-evident; Billboard is the source so there is no need for a source to literally state this. Of course, we cannot play this way forever thus I won't put the correction back but it will need updating with Katy Perry's next song; for now it's on your conscience. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rcsobe (talkcontribs) 01:31, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I'm not because it's sourced. You changing it without a source specifically saying Bon Appetit has broken the streak is providing misinformation. Thanks.  — Calvin999 11:46, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

Side note Calvin - why do you keep removing the link to the appropriate Bon Appetit page on Dance Club Songs? I edited the page so it links to the song's wiki page, and for reasons unknown to basic logic, you keep reverting back to the page that links to the magazine. Care to explain? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alechuerta (talkcontribs) 21:43, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

Because you need a source saying that this song specifically broke her streak, and that doesn't exist. You keep changing it to unsourced information. I'm not linking to a magazine...  — Calvin999 09:20, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

WikiCup 2018 March newsletter[edit]

And so ends the first round of the competition, with 4 points required to qualify for round 2. With 53 contestants qualifying, the groups for round 2 are slightly smaller than usual, with the two leaders from each group due to qualify for round 3 as well as the top sixteen remaining users.

Our top scorers in round 1 were:

  • United States Aoba47 led the field with a featured article, 8 good articles and 42 GARs, giving a total of 666 points.
  • Germany FrB.TG , a WikiCup newcomer, came next with 600 points, gained from a featured article and masses of bonus points.
  • India Ssven2, another WikiCup newcomer, was in third place with 403 points, garnered from a featured article, a featured list, a good article and twelve GARs.
  • United States Ceranthor, India Numerounovedant, Minnesota Carbrera, Netherlands Farang Rak Tham and Romania Cartoon network freak all had over 200 points, but like all the other contestants, now have to start again from scratch. A good achievement was the 193 GARs performed by WikiCup contestants, comparing very favourably with the 54 GAs they achieved.

Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 1 but before the start of round 2 can be claimed in round 2. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews.

If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help 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!

Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Civility in infobox discussions closed[edit]

An arbitration case regarding civility in infobox discussions has now closed and the final decision is viewable at the link above. The following remedies have been enacted:

  1. Any uninvolved administrator may apply infobox probation as a discretionary sanction. See the full decision for details of infobox probation.
  2. Standard discretionary sanctions are authorized for all discussions about infoboxes and to edits adding, deleting, collapsing, or removing verifiable information from infoboxes.
  3. Cassianto is indefinitely placed on infobox probation.
  4. The Arbitration Committee recommends that well-publicized community discussions be held to address whether to adopt a policy or guideline addressing what factors should weigh in favor of or against including an infobox in a given article and how those factors should be weighted.
  5. All editors are reminded to maintain decorum and civility when engaged in discussions about infoboxes, and to not turn discussions about a single article's infobox into a discussion about infoboxes in general.
  6. For canvassing editors to this case, Volvlogia (talk · contribs) is admonished. They are warned that any further instances of canvassing related to arbitration processes will likely result in sanctions.
Discuss this at: Wikipedia talk:Arbitration Committee/Noticeboard#Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Civility in infobox discussions closed

WikiCup 2018 May newsletter[edit]

The second round of the 2018 WikiCup has now finished. Most contestants who advanced to the next round scored upwards of 100 points, but two with just 10 points managed to scrape through into round 3. Our top scorers in the last round were:

  • Scotland Cas Liber, our winner in 2016, with three featured articles
  • Republic of Texas Iazyges, with nine good articles and lots of bonus points
  • India Yashthepunisher, a first time contestant, with two featured lists
  • Cascadia (independence movement) SounderBruce, a finalist last year, with seventeen good topic articles
  • United States Usernameunique, a first time contestant, with fourteen DYKs
  • San Francisco Muboshgu, a seasoned competitor, with three ITNs and
  • South Carolina Courcelles, another first time contestant, with twenty-seven GARs

So far contestants have achieved twelve featured articles between them and a splendid 124 good articles. Commendably, 326 GARs have been completed during the course of the 2018 WikiCup, so the backlog of articles awaiting GA review has been reduced as a result of contestants' activities. As we enter the third round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 2 but before the start of round 3 can be claimed in round 3. Remember too that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them. When doing GARs, please make sure that you check that all the GA criteria are fully met; most of the GARs are fine, but a few have been a bit skimpy.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article nominations, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

WikiCup 2018 July newsletter[edit]

  • Scotland Cas Liber, our winner in 2016, with two featured articles and three GAs on natural history and astronomy topics
  • Cascadia (independence movement) SounderBruce, a finalist last year, with a variety of submissions related to transport in the state of Washington

Over the course of the competition, contestants have completed 458 GA reviews, in comparison to 244 good articles submitted for review and promoted.

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.
