Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts?


Tim Dinsdale[edit]

Please, can you edit on commons some photos of Tim Dinsdale and his wife? Thank you. --79.21.199.185 13:52, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, but I'm not a technical person and I have no idea how to do this. Check with an administrator, e.g. User:HJ Mitchell. Regards Denisarona (talk) 13:56, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you very much. --79.21.199.185 13:57, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

Sources needed for Days of the Year pages[edit]

You're probably not aware of this change, but Days of the Year pages are no longer exempt from WP:V and direct sources are required for additions. For details see the content guideline, the WikiProject Days of the Year style guide or the edit notice on any DOY page. Please do not add new additions to these pages without direct sources as the burden to provide them is on the editor who adds or restores material to these pages. Thank you.

In future, you should read the edit summary. Denisarona (talk) 09:40, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi, Thanks for your help with tenacious IP vandal 168.8.213.100! - Samf4u (talk) 14:53, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

DOTY[edit]

Hi. Around July 2018 the guidelines changed so that all entries are supposed to have inline citations to back up the date. At first I was opposed to this, but while adding references I have found that quite a lot of existing entries are either wrong or unverifiable. See Wikipedia:Days_of_the_year#Direct_citations. Deb (talk) 11:11, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

"I don't understand what else is required if the person already has an article." In case I wasn't clear, the problem is that many of the articles linked to don't actually have a reference for the date of birth or death and in many cases those that are given are incorrect. That's why the guidelines were changed. There was a long debate about it, part of which you can read here. Deb (talk) 12:10, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Heydon[edit]

No worries - there's a more famous Eynsford elsewhere, so not surprised. Sumorsǣte (talk) 16:45, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

Reversal of my edit[edit]

For the article Genocides in history, I changed Old Testament to Torah. I did this because the term Old Testament is only relevant to Christians and not to Jews and Muslims and even secular scholars who find holy or study this text. The two are not the same either. Torah refers to the first five books not the entire work which might be called the Hebrew Bible or Tanakh. I feel like your reversal of my edit was a mistake.
