Remove references sections from monthly subpages?[edit]

In Special:Diff/844027766, Nixinova removed the references section from the page Portal:Current events/May 2018. I have restored that section for now. The user needs to explain why the references section should be removed. There are also many other months where none of the transcluded daily subpages use <ref></ref> tags, but instead external links beginning and ending with parentheses, and we need to discuss whether we should remove the references sections from those monthly subpages.

  • Pages shouldn't be using ref tags in current events. We just use plain links here. I removed them because they are not used at all.  Nixinova  T  C  00:50, 5 June 2018 (UTC)
  • No-one has replied so I'm going to assume they aren't needed.  Nixinova  T  C  07:53, 15 June 2018 (UTC)


I have made a stub manual of style for this page: Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Current events.  Nixinova  T  C  20:16, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Extra space?[edit]

There seems to be an extra space at the top. See [1] vs [2] (taken 9 hours apart). What caused this?  Nixinova  T  C  06:05, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

I don't see a space in the live page so I guess it's resolved. It was probably caused by blanking Portal:Current events/2018 June 19 at the time.[3] PrimeHunter (talk) 12:28, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

WikiCup 2018 July newsletter[edit]

The third round of the 2018 WikiCup has now come to an end. The 16 users who made it to the fourth round had at least 227 points. Our top scorers in round 3 were:

  • South Carolina Courcelles, a first time contestant, with 1756 points, a tally built largely on 27 GAs related to the Olympics
  • 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

Contestants managed 7 featured articles, 4 featured lists, 120 good articles, 1 good topic, 124 DYK entries, 15 ITN entries, and 132 good article reviews. Over the course of the competition, contestants have completed 458 GA reviews, in comparison to 244 good articles submitted for review and promoted. As we enter the fourth round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 3 but before the start of round 4 can be claimed in round 4. Please also remember 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. Please also remember that all submissions must meet core Wikipedia policies, regardless of the review process; several submissions, particularly in abstruse or technical areas, have needed additional work to make them completely verifiable.

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! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove your name from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Edit Request[edit]

hey i don't wanna bother you people but in July 2, 2018, under Arts and Culture there is a section labeled crossing the ditch and it says " Scott Donaldson becomes first solo kayaker" and it should say "becomes the first solo kayaker" MadameButterflyKnife (talk) 23:07, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

 Done — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 06:45, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

Edit request 18/07/18[edit]

Add |nocurrenteventslink=1 to the ITN header as it just links to itself.  Nixinova  T  C  05:15, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
