WikiCup 2018 July newsletter[edit]

The third round of the 2018 WikiCup has now come to an end. The 16 users who made it to the fourth round had at least 227 points. Our top scorers in round 3 were:

  • South Carolina Courcelles, a first time contestant, with 1756 points, a tally built largely on 27 GAs related to the Olympics
  • Scotland Cas Liber, our winner in 2016, with two featured articles and three GAs on natural history and astronomy topics
  • Cascadia (independence movement) SounderBruce, a finalist last year, with a variety of submissions related to transport in the state of Washington

Contestants managed 7 featured articles, 4 featured lists, 120 good articles, 1 good topic, 124 DYK entries, 15 ITN entries, and 132 good article reviews. Over the course of the competition, contestants have completed 458 GA reviews, in comparison to 244 good articles submitted for review and promoted. As we enter the fourth round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 3 but before the start of round 4 can be claimed in round 4. Please also remember that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them. When doing GARs, please make sure that you check that all the GA criteria are fully met. Please also remember that all submissions must meet core Wikipedia policies, regardless of the review process; several submissions, particularly in abstruse or technical areas, have needed additional work to make them completely verifiable.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article nominations, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove your name from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Warty sea star[edit]

Hi, I just promoted your hook to the image slot in Prep 1. If you'd like the caption "warty sea star", could you add a source for this name in the article lead? Thanks, Yoninah (talk) 00:06, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

NRW School of Governance[edit]

Dear Cwmhiraeth,

Thank you for helping me improve the article about the School of Governance. Recently you removed a large chunk of the article that I had created (lists of professors, teaching staff, etc.) with the note "Removing fluff as per WP:INDISCRIMINATE".

I've read up on the mentioned paragraphs and don't find anything in the indiscriminate section, that would qualify for a removal of the things, you removed in the article.

Since I'm fairly new to Wikipedia I would be thankful if you could help me out on this one. I've put quite some work into the article and don't yet fully understand the removal of all the - in my opinion valuable - detail. Maybe I'm being to "German" on some of the details...?! ;)

My best regards to Wales, many thanks and all the best, --Ruhri Jörg (talk) 12:32, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

@Ruhri Jörg: Wikipedia is an encyclopedia and should not be used as a College prospectus. If people wish to learn about Promotionskolleg, the lecturers and what subjects they teach, the Fellows and suchlike, they should visit the College website. Too many organisations try to use Wikipedia for the purpose of free advertising. Greetings from Wales. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 13:04, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
@Cwmhiraeth: Many thanks for your quick response! I understand, that the articles are not supposed to be about advertising and will try to be more careful about that (as I was not trying to advertise anything). But from an encyclopaedic point of view I would assume it to be very interesting, what (famous..) fellow etc. have been teaching at any given school. Just as Wiki-articles often list famous alumni... I would therefore like to partly re-introduce some of the information you removed (trying to clean it up before!) if you agree. Many thanks, have a great week! --Ruhri Jörg (talk) 13:25, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
I left the "Visiting Professorship" section in place because that did at least link to notable individuals. Much of what I removed referred to non-notable individuals and will soon be out of date as they move on in their professions. Better, in my opinion, would be to just list the masters programs. There are only 30 students a year so the whole article is disproportionate to the size of the establishment. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 13:40, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
@Cwmhiraeth: Many thanks for taking the time to explain your thoughts! I do agree with you - the teachers are definitely not as notable and should / can be removed. Some of the other people you removed are very noteable, for Germans, at least (e.g. the guest lecturers list contains Hans Eichel – Federal Minister of Finance a.D. or Norbert Lammert, the current President of the German Bundestag). I have therefore undone your complete removal and tried / currently work on removing the parts that I think you targeted initially... Hope that this is fine with you - otherwise, feel free to give me some feedback again! All the best from Germany, --Ruhri Jörg (talk) 12:35, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

Peter Kenvyn Jones[edit]

Hi Cwmhiraeth. As you may have seen from my latest comment at the AfD, both the creator and the account who moved it into article space are confirmed socks of a prolific sockmaster and paid editing operation which has been going on since 2016. Rather tough luck for their client, but then you get what you pay for as my mother always said. Best, Voceditenore (talk) 15:28, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

Gail Honeyman[edit]

Thanks for the review, Cwmhiraeth!

To tell you the truth, I wish I had much more time to write (many more) (mostly writer's) biographies, but due to the lack of it, I usually decide to do that only when I know that the article will end up being relatively short.

Thanks again! - Виктор Јованоски (talk) 09:44, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

Brevity is a virtue that many Wikipedia article creators do not seem to appreciate! Cwmhiraeth (talk) 10:02, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

I am not sure[edit]

I am not sure if DYK is worth my time until I fully understand what would pass muster or not. Sure, I had another successful DYK yesterday. But it takes so long to do the QPQ and I wonder if it would be a better use of my time to focus on creating better (longer) articles instead. I am not saying I want to give up on DYK entirely, but perhaps we need better processes to predict what will be accepted.Zigzig20s (talk) 10:56, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

I suggest that if creating articles is what you enjoy doing most, then create articles. If an article is about an interesting individual (or subject) and especially if you can think of a good potential hook, then nominate it for DYK if you think fit. If on the other hand, you struggle to find anything suitable for a hook, then give it a miss, and in any case, don't nominate it if you find doing so stressful. I used to do DYKs largely in connection with scoring points for the WikiCup, but now I do them mainly from habit, but I don't nominate every article I write. It is nice to think that the article you have worked hard creating is being read by a large number of people around the world. So make DYK a pleasurable optional extra. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 12:57, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
By the way, is Felton Grandison Clark still on please?Zigzig20s (talk) 15:24, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

COI Issues on Ole Bouman page[edit]

Hi Cwmhiraeth, thank you for reviewing the page I edited and thank you for the constructive advice. To clarify, I have no connection to the subject I edited. I started to edit simply because I found the original page deleted several months ago when I was collecting relevant materials for my project, and then it happened to become a chance for me to contribute to my field. I will be more careful with such issue when next time I make more edits on Wikipedia. Many thanks and best regards. Clansietsai (talk) 11:58, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

@Clansietsai: Thank you for the information. Are you a friend of Ole Bouman, a student, a colleague or what? And what is the project you refer to? Cwmhiraeth (talk) 12:37, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
@Cwmhiraeth: Thank you for the question. To be very honest, I don't know the subject. I'm currently a student, and just happened to come across this name when I was asked by my tutor to collect information related to Dutch architectural critics, including Rem Koolhaas and Roemer van Toorn. Several months ago when I was gathering information from Wikipedia, Bouman's page was still there, and it helped me a lot with my research. But when I came back later, it was gone. After all the research I have done and all the materials I have gathered, I assumed I was able to help restore the page - this is why I started to edit. All the texts are based on my own research. I'm really sorry if the page sounds too much like an article for advertising purpose. Would like to hear more advice for making the page look more like a wikipedia article. Big thank you! Clansietsai (talk) 13:14, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
@Clansietsai: Sorry if I seemed a bit unfriendly. You might be surprised how many people have biographies in Wikipedia written by paid editors. In your article, most of the sources at present are primary sources, information provided by Ole Bouman about himself or derived from interviews he has given. That's fine for uncontroversial material, but you really need some good secondary sources in books, newspapers or similar about him and the impact he has made, see this page. Also, the article shouldn't have inline links to other sites; these can go at the end under "External links", or you can format them as proper inline references. Try to state facts and avoid flowery language like "an independent magazine that pushes architecture to go beyond itself and to challenge its limits and discover new roles in society". Cwmhiraeth (talk) 17:32, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
@Cwmhiraeth: Thank you for your advice - and no problem at all, I've learnt a lot from this editing experience, and have been very grateful for your helpful suggestions. Honestly, I never knew people would pay to have an article on wikipedia. I'll try to look for more reliable sources to improve the page. Many thanks and all best wishes.

Cliff Oberlin Speedy Deletion[edit]

Hi Cwmhiraeth,

Thank you for your feedback on the Cliff Oberlin page. The issues you mentioned were unintentional as I found a lot of information online and wanted to include a majority of his efforts in his career. I am just starting out on Wikipedia and wanted to give publishing a page a try. I've come across Cliff's name a few times being in the finance industry and thought it may be an easy start. I would like to try editing the page to get rid of any information that you think is a COI or unrelevant, and then I'd like to try reposting with your comments in mind. Thanks for your time. Jumperfan (talk) 21:08, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

The person you need to get in touch with is user Ritchie333 who is the admin who deleted the page. You already have a start for the article in your sandbox. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 05:16, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
