WikiCup 2015 March newsletter[edit]

One of Adam Cuerden’s several quality restorations during round 1

That's it, the first round is done, sign-ups are closed and we're into round 2. Forty-seven competitors move into this round (a bit shy of the expected 64), and we are roughly broken into eight groups of six. The top two of each group will go through to round 3, and then the top scoring 16 "wildcards" across all groups.

Twenty-two Good Articles were submitted, including three by Connecticut Cyclonebiskit (submissions), and two each by Denmark MPJ-DK (submissions), Zanzibar Hurricanehink (submissions), Florida 12george1 (submissions), and New South Wales Cas Liber (submissions). Twenty-one Featured Pictures were claimed, including 17 by There's always time for skeletons Adam Cuerden (submissions) (the Round 1 high scorer). Thirty-one contestants saw their DYKs appear on the main page, with a commanding lead (28) by Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions). Twenty-nine participants conducted GA reviews with Lancashire J Milburn (submissions) completing nine.

WikiCup 2016 March newsletter (update)[edit]

Along with getting the year wrong in the newsletter that went out earlier this week, we did not mention (as the bot did not report) that New South Wales Cas Liber (submissions) claimed the first Featured Article Persoonia terminalis of the 2016 Wikicup.

Harry S.Truman[edit]

Am wondering why you reverted the image change. I rather like the more close-up photo. Shearonink (talk) 13:28, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

I thought the existing one was a higher-quality image. But a close up is nice, too. Reasonable minds may disagree, I guess. --Coemgenus (talk) 13:39, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
Heh, first time today I've been called reasonable... Would you mind if I changed it back? In the present one his face is so far away from the camera - so many people access WP on their mobile devices - I tend to think info box images that are more of a close-up of the subject's face hold more interest. Shearonink (talk) 13:47, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
Works for me. --Coemgenus (talk) 15:11, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

George Tucker FA Nom[edit]

To update George Tucker - per direction of the FA coordinator, a source review has been requested, with no takers after almost a week. Is it permissible/agreeable for you to conduct this? This particular element of the article is relatively limited. I wanted to ask about this since you have already invested the most time/effort reviewing it. Cheers. Hoppyh (talk) 21:15, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

@Hoppyh: No problem, I'll take a look today. --Coemgenus (talk) 15:18, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
All done. Thanks ever so much. Let me know if I can help you sometime. Hoppyh (talk) 20:33, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
