PR Request[edit]

Hello, it's nice to meet you. I recently became aware of you at the Loev FAC, where you provided a thorough review of the article. Should you have the time and inclination, I would really appreciate some comments at this PR of Lady Gaga which I would like to submit for FA consideration in the not-too distant future. No problem if you don't have time ort he subject isn't of interest to you. Cheers. – FrB.TG (talk) 20:21, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

@FrB.TG: Hi FrB.TG, I would be happy to help. I will always love the Gaga! It looks like a big article, so I'll try to get you comments ASAP, but it may take me a few days. ceranthor 22:11, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
@FrB.TG: I hope you are finding my comments somewhat helpful. Do you think you could give me some feedback on Barry Voight? ceranthor 21:27, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
I am finding your comments extremely helpful, which I'll get to tomorrow. This is the type of the criticism I was looking for for the article. I know nothing about geology whatsoever, but I'll see; seems like an interesting article from a glance. – FrB.TG (talk) 21:46, 6 August 2017 (UTC)

WikiCup 2017 September newsletter[edit]

Round 4 of the WikiCup has ended and we move forward into the final round. In round 4, a total of 12 FAs, 3 FLs, 44 GAs, 3 FLs, 79 DYKs, 1 ITN and 42 GARs was achieved, with no FPs or FTs this time. Congratulations to Peacemaker67 on the Royal Yugoslav Navy Good Topic of 36 items, and the 12 featured articles achieved by Cas Liber (5), Vanamonde93 (3), Peacemaker67 (2), Adityavagarwal (1) and 12george1 (1). With a FA scoring 200 points, and bonus points available on top of this, FAs are likely to feature heavily in the final round. Meanwhile Yellow Evan, a typhoon specialist, was contributing 12 DYKs and 10 GAs, while Adityavagarwal and Freikorp topped the GAR list with 8 reviews each. As we enter the final round, we are down to eight contestants, and we would like to thank those of you who have been eliminated for the useful contributions you have made to the Cup and Wikipedia. The lowest score needed to reach round 5 was 305, and I think we can expect a highly competitive final round.

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 Needed. 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 reduce 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 man (or woman) win!

Hello![edit]

I see you've been back a few months, but I haven't seen your name around for a long time so it brought a smile to face to see your signature as I was scrolling through FAC. It reminded me of the time that I was just finding my feet on Wikipedia. Just wanted to say hi, that's all! :) HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 11:44, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

@HJ Mitchell: I'm not heavily active, but thanks for the welcome back! Hope all's well! ceranthor 15:37, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Gaga[edit]

Hi, Ceranthor. Thanks for all of your help with her article and at the PR. I, IndianBio and SNUGGUMS would like to take this to FAC soon. Since you have become more than a reviewer of the article, I would like to know your opinion of where the article stands prose-wise. Many thanks. FrB.TG (talk) 12:22, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi @FrB.TG: I read through the article and was pretty happy with how it looked. I'll look over it tonight and give you a definitive answer, but I think it's more or less there. ceranthor 14:51, 29 October 2017 (UTC)
@FrB.TG: a few more comments, and then I think it's good to go:
  • "New York shows without success," - do the sources clarify what NY shows means?
Here's what the book says, "At age sixteen Stefani had begun to sing and play in front of live audiences in her hometown. She also attended auditions for parts in the city, though with little success."
  • "Its second single "Judas" also reached the top ten in several major musical markets" - including which ones?
  • "Her other endeavors included" - there's nothing wrong with this start to the sentence, but I think it should be a separate paragraph perhaps. I just don't think it follows logically from the preceding sentence/paragraph topic
  • "Her engagement to Taylor Kinney ended in July 2016.[159]" - not sure if this is available info, but it might help to clarify why
If I recall correctly, she posted on Instagram implying that they were not together anymore, but did not specify the reason/s.
  • "Her performances are described" - I like "have been described" better, but this is nitpicky
  • "before she was replaced by her assistant Richard Jackson.[225]" - in what year?

Otherwise, I think this is ready. :) ceranthor 19:27, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

Thank you, I have addressed these as well except the ones under which I have left replies. Look forward to submitting this for FAC soon. :) FrB.TG (talk) 16:30, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
No problem! Make sure to give me a ping when you end up submitting it, so I can pledge my support based on my copyediting! ceranthor 16:32, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

Message to Talk Page Stalkers - Review Needed[edit]

Hi TPSers,

I'm hoping to take Three Sisters (Oregon) to FAC once it's gotten a copyedit and a few readovers by peers to give me fresh eyes to improve it. I would appreciate any and all feedback if anyone has the time to give it a looksie. Best, ceranthor 17:01, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

WikiCup 2018[edit]

So the 2017 WikiCup has come to an end. Congratulations to the winner, to the other finalists and to all those who took part. 177 contestants signed up, more than usual, but not all of them submitted entries in the first round. Were editors attracted by the cash prizes offered for the first time this year, or were these irrelevant? Do the rules and scoring need changing for the 2018 WikiCup? If you have a view on these or other matters, why not join in the WikiCup discussion about next year's contest?
