Mary Van Stevens Article[edit]

Hi - I'm fairly new to Wikipedia. I was in the process of adding all the correct sources when the article was proposed and/or nominated for deletion. How do we remove this proposal for deletion? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Herr.geschichte (talkcontribs) 02:44, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

Neil Gross[edit]

Hey Comatmebro, I was hoping you could elaborate on why you moved Neil Gross, an article about an unambiguously notable academic, to draft space. You said in the move log that it was "Requested by original creator of page", but I was hoping you could provide more information about why they wanted it moved and why you decided to grant their request, as well as discuss whether/when it could be moved back into article space. Thanks. Everymorning (talk) 23:16, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

The OP was not ready for the page to "go live" so i moved it to draft space. Not much else to it. If you have an issue with this justification please feel free to elaborate. You are asking questions without really giving me a sense of why you are asking them... Comatmebro (talk) 20:30, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Just Saying Hi[edit]


You welcomed me to Wikipedia sometime ago and because of that i'm still here. Check my talk page to confirm that, it was the first post on my talk page. Zazzysa (talk) 20:51, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

I'm glad I made you feel welcome! Let me know if there's anything I can do to help you out! Cheers Comatmebro (talk) 20:59, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

New Page Reviewing[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
Hello, Comatmebro.

I've seen you editing recently and you seem knowledgeable about Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
Would you please consider becoming a New Page Reviewer? Reviewing/patrolling a page doesn't take much time but it requires a good understanding of Wikipedia policies and guidelines; currently Wikipedia needs experienced users at this task. (After gaining the flag, patrolling is not mandatory. One can do it at their convenience). But kindly read the tutorial before making your decision. Thanks. — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 09:00, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

I'd love to! Thank you for the invite. Cheers Comatmebro (talk) 22:12, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

New page reviewer granted[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Comatmebro. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group, allowing you to review new pages and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or in some cases, tag them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is a vital function for policing the quality of the encylopedia, if you have not already done so, you must read the new tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the various deletion criteria. If you need more help or wish to discuss the process, please join or start a thread at page reviewer talk.

  • URGENT: Please consider helping get the huge backlog down to a manageable number of pages as soon as possible.
  • Be nice to new users - they are often not aware of doing anything wrong.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted - be formal and polite in your approach to them too, even if they are not.
  • Don't review a page if you are not sure what to do. Just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Remember that quality is quintessential to good patrolling. Take your time to patrol each article, there is no rush. Use the message feature and offer basic advice.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In case of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, the right can be revoked at any time by an administrator. Anarchyte (work | talk) 05:51, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Henry Lee Clarke[edit]

I see you're interested in human rights. I actually created Henry Lee Clarke after reading about the use of forced labour in cotton production in Uzbekistan. I am unable to find anything about Clarke and cotton, however.Zigzig20s (talk) 03:52, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

That's okay! I think the article passes WP:N without it, so you are OK. Looks good so far! I will see if I can find anything substantial to add. Cheers Comatmebro (talk) 20:30, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

New Page Reviewer Newsletter[edit]

Hello Comatmebro, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 12713 pages. Please consider reviewing even just a few pages each day! If everyone helps out, it will really put a dent in the backlog.
  • Currently the backlog stretches back to March and some pages in the backlog have passed the 90 day Google index point. Please consider reviewing some of them!

Outreach and Invitations:

  • If you know other editors with a good understanding of Wikipedia policy, invite them to join NPP by dropping the invitation template on their talk page with: {{subst:NPR invite}}. Adding more qualified reviewers will help with keeping the backlog manageable.

New Year New Page Review Drive

  • A backlog drive is planned for the start of the year, beginning on January 1st and running until the end of the month. Unique prizes will be given in tiers for both the total number of reviews made, as well as the longest 'streak' maintained.
  • Note: quality reviewing is extremely important, please do not sacrifice quality for quantity.

General project update:

  • ACTRIAL has resulted in a significant increase in the quality of new submissions, with noticeably fewer CSD, PROD, and BLPPROD candidates in the new page feed. However, the majority of the backlog still dates back to before ACTRIAL started, so consider reviewing articles from the middle or back of the backlog.
  • The NPP Browser can help you quickly find articles with topics that you prefer to review from within the backlog.
  • To keep up with the latest conversation on New Pages Patrol or to ask questions, you can go to Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Reviewers and add it to your watchlist.

A kitten for you![edit]


Thanks for modifying the article Freestyle Script!

Your welcome! I'd recommend trying to find some additional reliable sources about the topic (and maybe the creator?) so that it doesn't get deleted for not meeting WP:N guidelines. Right now the pages is a little "bare bones" Cheers! Comatmebro (talk) 02:12, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

New Years new page backlog drive[edit]

Hello Comatmebro, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Announcing the NPP New Year Backlog Drive!

We have done amazing work so far in December to reduce the New Pages Feed backlog by over 3000 articles! Now is the time to capitalise on our momentum and help eliminate the backlog!

The backlog drive will begin on January 1st and run until January 29th. Prize tiers and other info can be found HERE.

Awards will be given in tiers in two categories:

  • The total number of reviews completed for the month.
  • The minimum weekly total maintained for all four weeks of the backlog drive.

NOTE: It is extremely important that we focus on quality reviewing. Despite our goal of reducing the backlog as much as possible, please do not rush while reviewing.

If you wish to opt-out of future mailings, go here.TonyBallioni (talk) 20:24, 30 December 2017 (UTC)

WikiProject Wikify: Current Backlog Reduction Plan[edit]

Hey, I noticed you marked yourself as a member of WikiProject Wikify and you are currently listed as active. I was wondering if you would be able to assist with our current backlog reduction plan. While traditional drives are more structured month-long sprints by WikiProject Wikify members, there is currently lacking activity within the project and in order to significantly reduce the incredible backlog, members are encouraged to review all articles marked with the Underlinked Template Message - {{underlinked}} - a list of which can be found here - to analyze the worthiness of the template message on the given article. Articles that have nothing to link or are have had wikilinks sufficiently added should have the template removed to clear the backlog and make it easier for editors to find articles in genuine need of wikification. This can be done by any editor; however, all editors should consider joining if they haven't done so already. Thank you!
