Backend as a service discussion[edit]

Hey Ceyockey, Thanks again for your thoughts over at WP:Companies about including provider names in the Backend as a service article. I'd like to invite you over to Talk:Backend as a service to participate in the discussion about how to handle this situation so that we can come to some kind of consensus. I'm also reaching out to another editor today, User:Kuru, who has been involved in the discussion at Talk:Backend as a service. Hope you'll have time to come by and provide some input! ChrisPond (Talk · COI) 18:54, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Hey Ceycokey, I've posted some additional thoughts over at Talk:Backend as a service related to your discussion with Goodraise about using WP:FLC or WP:DUE to decide about including company names in the BaaS article. If you have time, think you could pop over and see what you think? (And thanks for your comment over at my talk about keeping my responses brief—it's helpful to keep in mind when participating in these discussions.)

Opting in to VisualEditor[edit]

As you may know, VisualEditor ("Edit beta") is currently available on the English Wikipedia only for registered editors who choose to enable it. Since you have made 100 or more edits with VisualEditor this year, I want to make sure that you know that you can enable VisualEditor (if you haven't already done so) by going to your preferences and choosing the item, "Enable the visual editor. It will be available in the following namespaces: $1". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements. We value your feedback, whether positive or negative, about using VisualEditor, at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:21, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Your helpful DSM-5 edits[edit]

Hello Ceyockey; Your name on the DSM-5 edit page indicated you might have the actual manual available. On the Schizophrenia Talk page, there is a list of DSM-5 transition edits identified for upgrade from DMS-4 residual edits still on the old version of the Page being currently displayed. This is one of the few FA psychology pages and can use a little help or comment. Things have been slowed down in making the DSM-5 transition edits there since not all the editors at that wikipage actually have the DSM-5 in hand. Could you glance at this?

Proposed deletion of Achara clan[edit]

The article Achara clan has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non notable article, possibly directory, several of these article are just stub unsourced, an article (list) containing all these entries would suit better.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Journal redirects[edit]

Hi, thanks for creating all those journal redirects from abbreviations, former names, and such. I know it's tedious and a bit boring, but it is very useful because they are used in many citations and this way users can easier find the journals (especially if they're linked). I have one small request: we usually tag such redirects on their talk pages for the WPJournal project using {{WPJournals|class=Redirect}}. It's not essential and if you feel it is too much, don't bother with it, eventually someone will get around to it (there's no deadline after all). Anyway, thanks for your help with WPJournals! --Randykitty (talk) 10:56, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

VisualEditor issue[edit]

Hi Ceyockey,

VisualEditor is adding some weird span tags to your references (and then removing them the next time you edit the article). Can you tell me what web browser/OS/skin you're using? Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 06:53, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I appreciate it. You're the first person who wasn't using Windows, so that's really important. I think that both of my weird problems are all associated with Chrome so far (but that's the most popular browser, so it could just be chance). If you figure out how to reproduce it, or even have any guesses, then please let me know. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:32, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your generous offer. I'd love it. The fastest way to see the errors is to see this RecentChanges list. About half of them have a span problem—actually, about half of them show VisualEditor cleaning up a span problem that it introduced in the previous edit. It's only the removal that is flagged. I thought for a while that there were two separate span bugs, but now I think it's just one.
The official sandbox for VisualEditor is at mw:VisualEditor:Test. However, I believe that you can edit any page in userspace with VisualEditor, even if you're logged out. Just visit the page and paste ?veaction=edit onto the end of the URL. Feel free to use User:Whatamidoing (WMF)/sandbox if you want. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Whatamidoing_(WMF)/sandbox?veaction=edit edits the page. "Sandbox2" is where I've been swapping in articles for testing, if you prefer that; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Whatamidoing_(WMF)/sandbox2?veaction=edit will take you to that. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 01:01, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the update. {{cite news}} is also affected (see the very end of this diff, on the left column). I don't remember seeing a citation template that had a span problem and did not contain a URL, so perhaps that's a clue.
However, I've found two that have no URLs and no refs: This one doesn't involve a ref. This one seems to appear after the {{as of}} template. However, it's possible that these are separate problems. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 05:38, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
Hi Ceyockey,
I triggered this bug yesterday on a private wiki with {{highlight}}. It's bug 59653http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59653, and I'm going to add a link to your sandbox.
Have you been able to trigger this without (ever) copying and pasting anything (in that entire editing session)? Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:24, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Feedback needed on using special characters[edit]

Hello. Thank you for using VisualEditor! Having editors use it is the best way for the Wikimedia Foundation to develop it into the best tool it can be.

While we always welcome general feedback (please report any issues in Bugzilla in the "VisualEditor" product or drop your feedback on the central feedback page on MediaWiki.org), the developers are especially interested right now in feedback on the special character inserter. This new tool is used for inserting special characters (including symbols like , IPA pronunciation symbols, mathematics symbols, and characters with diacritics). It is intended to help people whose computers do not have good character inserters. For example, many Mac users prefer to use the extensive "Special Characters..." tool present at the bottom of the Edit menu in all applications or to learn the keyboard shortcuts for characters like ñ and ü.

The current version of the special characters tool in VisualEditor is very simple and very basic. It will be getting a lot of work in the coming weeks and months. It does not contain very many character sets at this time. (The specific character sets can be customized at each Wikipedia, so that each project could have a local version with the characters it wants.) But the developers want your ideas at this early stage about ways that the overall concept could be improved. I would appreciate your input on this question, so please try out the character inserter and tell me what changes to the design would (or would not!) best work for you.

Screenshot of the Insert menu in VisualEditor
The "insert" pulldown on the task bar of VisualEditor will lead you to the 'Special character' tool.
Screenshot of Special Characters tool
This is the Special character inserter as it appears on many wikis. (Some may have customized it.) Your feedback on this tool is particularly important.

Issues you might consider:

  • How often do you normally use Wikipedia's character inserters?
  • Which character sets are useful to you? Should it include all 18 of the character sets provided in the wikitext editor's newer toolbar at the English Wikipedia, the 10 present in the older editor toolbar, or some other combination of character sets?
  • How many special characters would you like to see at one time?
    • Should there be a "priority" or "favorites" section for the 10 or 12 characters that most editors need most often? Is it okay if you need an extra click to go beyond the limited priority set?
    • How should the sections be split up? Should they be nested? Ordered?
    • How should the sections be navigated? Should there be a drop-down? A nested menu?
  • The wikitext editor has never included many symbols and characters, like and . Do you find that you need these missing characters? If the character inserter in VisualEditor includes hundreds or thousands of special characters, will it be overwhelming? How will you find the character you want? What should be done for users without enough space to display more than a few dozen characters?
  • Should the character inserter be statically available until dismissed? Should it hover near the mouse? Should it go away on every selection or 10 seconds after a selection with no subsequent ones?
  • Some people believe that the toolbar already has too many options—how would you simplify it?

The developers are open to any thoughts on how the special character inserter can best be developed, even if this requires significant changes. Please leave your views on the central feedback page, or, if you'd prefer, you can contact me directly on my talk page. It would be really helpful if you can tell me how frequently you need to use special characters in your typical editing and what languages or other special characters are important to you.

Thank you again for your work with VisualEditor and for any feedback you can provide. I really do appreciate it.

P.S. You might be interested in the current ideas about improving citations, too. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 00:20, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

American or United states categories[edit]

Hi,

I noticed you have created a new "American" category. I would appreciate your input at Category talk:American law by year#Why not create Category:United States law by year instead. Thanks, Ottawahitech (talk) 01:55, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

following was composed before your addition of the specific category you were looking at, but remains relevant'

If you are referring to something like "Category:American companies established in XXXX", I started down this road and have since abandoned it ... I think that using the "establishments" categories are sufficient, which fall in the "xxxx in the United States" category tree. My thought was that by year by country would be a good matrixing, but it turns out to be less helpful than initially thought; it would be better to cross-product the company/year/industry with year/country in a soft manner than do a hard set company/year/country .
As for US Law by year ... consider "1999 in United States law" or "1999 in American law" as a subcat of Category:1999 in law, similar to the existing Category:1999 in Australian law; this could be a co-subcat of Category:1999 in the United States. --User:Ceyockey (talk to me) 02:12, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Deletion issue[edit]

Hello. I will need you advice and help on the matter. On 24 December 2014, you discussed the AfD proposal with the keep vote, while making my point when I was creating the article. The article was pretty much (95%) translation from Russian Wikipedia with the minor adjustments for use on English version. The fact that I was not even notified by the nominator rose my suspicion. According to my Wikipedia experience so far, this should be No consensus or even Keep, but the deletion admin decided otherwise. I require that the decision be reviewed. I hope you will be able to help. Thank you in advance. Cheers! --BiH (talk) 21:49, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Notifying the creator of an article that it is being discussed for deletion is a courtesy and not a requirement. The article was on AfD for 3 periods before being deleted, plenty of time to garner input. The 'delete' and 'keep' suggestions are not votes. Ultimately, the closing person judges whether to delete or keep or render another outcome based on the input from all parties and the closure might end up being controversial. To request undeletion after the article has gone through AfD, go through WP:DRV. Another possibility -- did you submit to WP:QTN? --User:Ceyockey (talk to me) 00:17, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Accusations against me certainly have my eyebrows raised, but the assessment that I only made two edits - both reverts - to the article in question are accurate. Jack Palance said it best ... "...I don't even know who the hell you are!" --User:Ceyockey (talk to me) 00:23, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Abraxis[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Abraxis requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Comment at WP Village Pump (technical)[edit]

Thank you for your comment at Wikipedia#Village Pump (technical)#Infoboxes. I wonder whether you really mean to use a double negative at the beginning of your comment.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Bedtime, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Stories (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Support request with team editing experiment project[edit]

Dear tech ambassadors, instead of spamming the Village Pump of each Wikipedia about my tiny project proposal for researching team editing (see here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Research_team_editing), I have decided to leave to your own discretion if the matter is relevant enough to inform a wider audience already. I would appreciate if you could appraise if the Wikipedia community you are more familiar with could have interest in testing group editing "on their own grounds" and with their own guidance. In a nutshell: it consists in editing pages as a group instead of as an individual. This social experiment might involve redefining some aspects of the workflow we are all used to, with the hope of creating a more friendly and collaborative environment since editing under a group umbrella creates less social exposure than traditional "individual editing". I send you this message also as a proof that the Inspire Campaign is already gearing up. As said I would appreciate of *you* just a comment on the talk page/endorsement of my project noting your general perception about the idea. Nothing else. Your contribution helps to shape the future! (which I hope it will be very bright, with colors, and Wikipedia everywhere) Regards from User:Micru on meta.

WikiProject Research Invitation[edit]

Hello Ceyockey,

We’d like to invite you to participate in a study that aims to explore how WikiProject members coordinate activities of distributed group members to complete project goals. We are specifically seeking to talk to people who have been active in at least one WikiProject in their time in Wikipedia. Compensation will be provided to each participant in the form of a $10 Amazon gift card.

The purpose of this study is to better understanding the coordination practices of Wikipedians active within WikiProjects, and to explore the potential for tool-mediated coordination to improve those practices. Interviews will be semi-structured, and should last between 45-60 minutes. If you decide to participate, we will schedule an appointment for the online chat session. During the appointment you will be asked some basic questions about your experience interacting in WikiProjects, how that process has worked for you in the past and what ideas you might have to improve the future.

You must be over 18 years old, speak English, and you must currently be or have been at one time an active member of a WikiProject. The interview can be conducted over an audio chatting channel such as Skype or Google Hangouts, or via an instant messaging client. If you have questions about the research or are interested in participating, please contact Michael Gilbert at (206) 354-3741 or by email at mdg@uw.edu.

We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of information sent by email.

iso4 journal titles[edit]

Hey Ceyockey,

Could you give me a link to the policy/MOS entry/whatnot you're basing the tweaks you're making to journals on? Right now it seems like kind of an unnecessary change. Thanks, Ironholds (talk) 23:36, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

And can you please stop making those changes until you've gone back and fixed the ones you've already made? this form makes the references readable but most of your edits don't bother with the name and just use a raw hard-to-read wikilink. Ironholds (talk) 23:38, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Actavis/Allergan[edit]

I am reaching out because you have recently edited the Actavis, Allergan or a similar company’s page, and would like your help. Actavis made the announcement this morning that they are transitioning to the Allergan name effective today.

See the press release here http://www.allergan.com/news/news/thomson-reuters/actavis-plc-is-now-allergan-plc.

We would like to redirect the current Actavis page to the Allergan page, and merge the content found on both.

We’d appreciate your help in vetting the edits we submit and ensuring that our changes meet Wikipedia community guidelines and standards. We plan to start the migration today.

Appreciate your help.

LANEYC (talk) 13:05, 15 June 2015 (UTC)LaneyC
  • @LANEYC: A simple redirection would not be appropriate. The general content guideline (not a rule, but a suggestion) established by WP:WikiProject Companies is that "An article should be about a company and its predecessors..." This is sometimes quite difficult to do given two companies of long histories and a practical decision as to at what point a joint article picks up is important in these cases. In the present case, both companies were (according to current text) established in 1983, 32 years ago, and a complete and seamless merge of the two articles would be difficult but not impossible. My suggestion would be to do something like this:
    a) change the name of the current Allergan to Allergan (historical company), but do not leave a redirect when the article is moved.
    b) change the name of the current Actavis to Allergan, and leave behind a redirect; the redirect can be tagged with {{redr|from former name}}
    c) edit the Allergan (historical company) to cap it off as a now defunct company, indicating it had been acquired by Actavis, which subsequently changed its name to Allergan
    d) in the Allergan article, make sure that the original name is well established as "Actavis" and that it was only after acquisition of "Allergan" that it changed its name.
It might not be a bad idea to put the request you put to me on the talk page of one and x-ref the other, and outline the solution you propose, which might be just what I've outlined here.

Comply with Wikipedia licensing terms of reuse[edit]

Dear Courtland,

Sorry for my late reply. I would like to thank you for taking time to contact us and for all the explanations about how to comply with Wikipedia licensing terms of reuse. Despite our efforts to be correct in the reuse of Wikipedia articles, I understand from you that the mention we had put in our Terms of Use was not sufficient. We will make everything that is needed in order to comply with Wikipedia terms.

Our team has already applied your recommendations and we’ve put at the bottom of every section that uses Wikipedia material the following text to license the material under GFDL:

"The section "History and Origin" of this page contains content from the copyrighted Wikipedia article "Abrahão"; that content is used under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL). You may redistribute it, verbatim or modified, providing that you comply with the terms of the GFDL."
For example: http://themeaningofthename.com/abrahao/

As well, we have updated our Terms of Use to comply with Wikipedia licensing on every page that uses Wikipedia material.
For example: http://themeaningofthename.com/contact-us/terms-of-use/#sources

Could you please confirm that these modifications are sufficient?

Thank you once again. Best Regards, Momchil

Bots[edit]


You are receiving this message because a technical change may affect a bot, gadget, or user script you have been using. The breaking change involves API calls. This change has been planned for two years. The WMF will start making this change on 30 June 2015. A partial list of affected bots can be seen here: https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2015-June/081931.html This includes all bots that are using pywikibot compat. Some of these bots have already been fixed. However, if you write user scripts or operate a bot that uses the API, then you should check your code, to make sure that it will not break.

What, exactly, is breaking? The "default continuation mode" for action=query requests to api.php will be changing to be easier for new coders to use correctly. To find out whether your script or bot may be affected, then search the source code (including any frameworks or libraries) for the string "query-continue". If that is not present, then the script or bot is not affected. In a few cases, the code will be present but not used. In that case, the script or bot will continue working.

This change will be part of 1.26wmf12. It will be deployed to test wikis (including mediawiki.org) on 30 June, to non-Wikipedias (such as Wiktionary) on 1 July, and to all Wikipedias on 2 July 2015.

If your bot or script is receiving the warning about this upcoming change (as seen at https://www.mediawiki.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=allpages ), it's time to fix your code!

Either of the above solutions may be tested immediately, you'll know it works because you stop seeing the warning.

Do you need help with your own bot or script? Ask questions in e-mail on the mediawiki-api or wikitech-l mailing lists. Volunteers at m:Tech or w:en:WP:Village pump (technical) or w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard may also be able to help you.

Are you using someone else's gadgets or user scripts? Most scripts are not affected. To find out if a script you use needs to be updated, then post a note at the discussion page for the gadget or the talk page of the user who originally made the script.

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Rhodes Bantam[edit]

I have no opinion on the actual AfD itself, but I think your close was inappropriate. Unless you have added dozens of sources, I believe that !voting keep on the AfD instead of closing it is a much better option, as the consensus was towards deletion, and it is not practice to !vote by closing. Esquivalience t 21:51, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

@Esquivalience: I do not feel my close was inappropriate and I do not consider my close to be a surrogate for !voting. Thanks for your opinion on the matter. You could re-nominate for deletion, or take it to deletion review, or edit as you feel appropriate. --User:Ceyockey (talk to me) 01:20, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

Open/closed access[edit]

I noticed that you added "closed access" templates to several sources at cosmic microwave background for which the journal itself is closed-access, but the citation included a version on arxiv. Shouldn't this count as open access ("green" open acess in the language of the open access article)? Has there been discussion on this? --Amble (talk) 19:19, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

I didn't mean to complain about your edit or to say that you should revert it -- I was truly just looking for more information. I haven't used the open and closed access templates before. They seem useful, so I was curious about how they are being used. Thanks. --Amble (talk) 15:50, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
@Amble: As far as I could tell from some searches the issue has not been discussed. It is a legitimate one and one that kind of confuses the whole copyright issue for academic papers in the physical sciences; the biological sciences tend to be more clear cut as there isn't a repository quite like arxiv, and the notion of "previously published" is handled differently between the two domains. I reverted as I'd done found this confusion and didn't have time to further pursue it. It's bubbling in the back of my brain and might resurface with some commentary at the appropriate places later (i.e. a couple of months or more). --User:Ceyockey (talk to me) 21:18, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
OK, thanks. I imagined the purpose of the templates was to indicate to Wikipedia editors that they can read the source without going through a paywall; in that case, arxiv would be good enough. However, if the idea is to indicate licensing status, and alignment with some notion of what open-access publishing is about, then of course there might be other requirements. --Amble (talk) 22:18, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Entecavir[edit]

Please review this edit at Entecavir. Template:Infobox drug offers melting_point + melting_high + melting_notes, but I don't see a way to accommodate your text—the infobox is currently showing an error because all the text is being passed to {{convert}} which requires a number. I guess melting_point could be "220" and melting_notes could start with "or more", but that's not the same as >220. Johnuniq (talk) 05:35, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
