Re: Edward Drinker Cope[edit]

Every linked genus has its own Wikipedia page saying that it was named by Cope, so each link is its own "source." The list is not exhaustive, just me procrastinating today by going around Wikipedia seeing how many genera named by Cope I could find. I've never seen a list of animals named by Cope, and was curious how many famous taxa would be on it. I was planning to keep adding to the list until it was complete, but it looks like I'm not very welcome to!

EDIT: I have no interest in spending time adding a source for each genus, so go ahead an delete my edit.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.67.186.136 (talk) 22:44, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Input about article section for a character list[edit]

Hey David! It's been too long! So, my current emphasis has been on improving List of Alien characters, after I saved it from deletion. For putting it together, I have had smooth sailing with setting this on course for the first two films on the page, but Alien 3 has been- pardon my French- a real bitch. I've hit an absolute roadblock with the character Robert Morse, as I cannot find any sources that give him any special emphasis beyond, "Yeah, he was played by this guy," or, "The man was a dick". Tell me, even though he has a bit of an impact on story in the end, does he even belong on the list page? I want to keep as much information as possible, but it's apparent his character has no lasting impact, is not the subject of any analytical discussion and worst yet, the character will prevent the page from reaching FL status. Should I remove him? DARTHBOTTO talkcont 03:15, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

Well, I'd appreciate your input for whenever you're back. But for now, I've removed the character from the list, as they apparently don't hold any cultural weight and their complete lack of sources are a hindrance to the list's FL potential. But yeah, let me know what you think when you're back. DARTHBOTTO talkcont 01:11, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

"@DarthBotto: Sorry for the delay. I think it's mostly up to your discretion. For Characters of Halo we drew the line that the only characters who would get mentioned would be recurring characters, to cut down on the scope. I dunno if that would work in your case, but I also don't think every section needs real-world info. If you're covering the major characters for each film it'd probably be better to leave him in, unless you narrow the scope significantly. Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs(talk) 21:04, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

Well, Morse is a very peripheral character who doesn't display any note-worthy actions, save for the fact that he's the lone survivor of the protagonists. I mean, I can't really say he's notable with the plot summary alone. I have considered having the page be only for recurring characters, but the problem with that is it would only likely be ten characters seen more than once, with literally only three of them being something more than a photograph or body double, haha. Big problem, eh? My instinct is to cut out peripheral characters with little narrative or cultural impact and see what happens. It's kind of frustrating, as it feels like I'm trudging into unfamiliar territory, as the nature of the way characters exist in the Alien franchise is unique, where there's one big recurring player in each movie, along with almost equally important supporting characters who don't make it into the sequel and if they do, they're not really characters!

FAC voluntary mentoring scheme[edit]

During a recent lengthy discussion on the WP:FAC talkpage, several ideas were put forward as to how this procedure could be improved, particularly in making it more user-friendly towards first-time nominees. The promotion rate for first-timers at FAC is depressingly low – around 16 percent – which is a cause for concern. To help remedy this, Mike Christie and I, with the co-operation of the FAC coordinators, have devised a voluntary mentoring scheme, in which newcomers will guided by more experienced editors through the stages of preparation and submission of their articles. The general format of the scheme is explained in more detail on Wikipedia: Mentoring for FAC, which also includes a list of editors who have indicated that they are prepared to act as mentors.

Would you be prepared to take on this role occasionally? If so, please add your name to the list. By doing so you incur no obligation; it will be entirely for you to decide how often and on which articles you want to act in this capacity. We anticipate that the scheme will have a trial run for a few months before we appraise its effectiveness. Your participation will be most welcome. Brianboulton (talk) 18:02, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Many thanks for signing up. The response from would-be mentors has been most encouraging. Schemes like this are often slow to take off, and it may be a while before we know if it's working. But with this level of support, including that of many of our most experienced FA editors, I think it has every chance. Brianboulton (talk) 16:32, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Upon searching for Matt's wiki page I noticed it was due for some updating. Then noticed it was deleted. I think this was a speedy deletion due to this fighter's young age;in addition, to the fact that he has just won Glory_WS Featherweight contender tournament! Glory33, Sept9th,2016, New jersey, USA.

He defeated both his opponents by KO.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, David Fuchs. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi David Fuchs.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
