Orphaned non-free image File:Olivia Jade.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Olivia Jade.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 02:40, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of File:Criminal Complaint.jpg[edit]

Notice

The file File:Criminal Complaint.jpg has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

If the text is useful to an article it should be written using wikitext for accessibility. WP:IUP#FORMAT: Generally speaking, you should not contribute images consisting solely of formatted or unformatted text, tables, or mathematical formulas. In most cases these can instead be typed directly into an article in wiki markup (possibly using MediaWiki's special syntax for tables, math). This will make the information easier to edit, as well as make it accessible to users of screen readers and text-based browsers.

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

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

Please consider addressing the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated files}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and files for discussion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. — JJMC89(T·C) 06:19, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Brussels International Catholic School page[edit]

Dear Sir or Madam,

Thank you very much for notifying the publication of a wikipedia page for the Brussels International Catholic School. I would like to submit some additional references from external sources. Do I have to do this immediately on the page or should I get in touch with you?

Best regards,

Annie - Bicschoolbe — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bicschoolbe (talkcontribs) 08:30, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Bicschoolbe - you may want to review WP:COIREQ. Chetsford (talk) 05:04, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

Realtor.com article[edit]

Hello, Chetsford. I'm struggling to get any feedback on one particular edit request for the Realtor.com article, which I've posted here. To summarize, an anonymous editor has added some text about "social media concerns", and I believe this is a case where a specific detail is being given a lot of weight in the article, compared to the reporting. I've outlined my specific concerns and shared sourcing. User:SMcCandlish has helped with the article in the past, but is not as comfortable deciding WP:UNDUE on company articles. Per his suggestion, I posted a request at the NPOV noticeboard, and at WikiProject Companies. Neither post received any feedback apart from SMcCandlish's comments. Before I open a request for comment, I was wondering if you might be willing to review the edit request and update the article appropriately? If you prefer to pass, that's OK, I'm just trying to find an individual editor who might be willing to help before I put a larger burden on the community.

Thanks for your consideration, Inkian Jason (talk) 15:42, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

Inkian Jason - I responded on the Talk page. I'll check back in three days, if that sounds okay. Chetsford (talk) 05:10, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
Sounds perfect, thank you, Inkian Jason (talk) 15:02, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

Hello again. I know not all editors get "pings" so I wanted to make sure you saw my comment here. I was surprised to see complete removal of a major ongoing campaign. Thanks for any feedback, if you have a moment. Inkian Jason (talk) 16:27, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

File:South Carolina Sword of State.png[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for the calculation of the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. See User:RonBot for info on how to not get these messages.

How are all my sources unreliable[edit]

I had three sources 1) a government website 2) another Wikipedia article however this was used only to illustrate the results of the last election. 3) a southend echo article which was only linked to show the fact a councillor had defected.

I have since changed the other Wikipedia article to a southend borough council link. (another government website) but the southend echo source should either stand or removed entirely as it is very hard to replace it. the southend echo also comes under semi reputable as it is a trusted news association. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fatguyinthedeli (talkcontribs) 22:42, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

Your Teahouse response[edit]

It has taken me this long to see this but I'm confused.

You said Ilgamoot should have written the draft User:Ilgamoot/Bay Meadows in a sandbox. In fact, when creating an article, users are given the option of creating a user subpage. Maybe this is something left over from the days before draft space. Anyway, I have numerous drafts that are like this. I haven't been able to establish notability for some of these drafts and that's why they are still drafts. You said the person's user page was the wrong place for an article, but that wasn't a user page. It was a user subpage, where I believe draft articles are permitted.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 19:24, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.18[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Chetsford,

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

Niharika Kohli, a product manager for the growth team, announced that work is underway in implementing improvements to New Page Patrol as part of the 2019 Community Wishlist and suggests all who are interested watch the project page on meta. Two requested improvements have already been completed. These are:

  • Allow filtering by no citations in page curation
  • Not having CSD and PRODs automatically marked as reviewed, reflecting current consensus among reviewers and current Twinkle functionality.
Reliable Sources for NPP

Rosguill has been compiling a list of reliable sources across countries and industries that can be used by new page patrollers to help judge whether an article topic is notable or not. At this point further discussion is needed about if and how this list should be used. Please consider joining the discussion about how this potentially valuable resource should be developed and used.

Backlog drive coming soon

Look for information on the an upcoming backlog drive in our next newsletter. If you'd like to help plan this drive, join in the discussion on the New Page Patrol talk page.
