New Page Reviewer Newsletter[edit]

Hello Dl2000, thank you for your efforts in reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
The NPP backlog at the end of the drive with the number of unreviewed articles by creation date. Red is older than 90 days, orange is between 90 and 30 days old, and green is younger than 30 days.

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 3819 unreviewed articles, with a further 6660 unreviewed redirects.
  • We are very close to eliminating the backlog completely; please help by reviewing a few extra articles each day!

New Year Backlog Drive results:

  • We made massive progress during the recent four weeks of the NPP Backlog Drive, during which the backlog reduced by nearly six thousand articles and the length of the backlog by almost 3 months!

General project update:

  • ACTRIAL will end it's initial phase on the 14th of March. Our goal is to reduce the backlog significantly below the 90 day index point by the 14th of March. Please consider helping with this goal by reviewing a few additional pages a day.
  • Reviewing redirects is an important and necessary part of New Page Patrol. Please read the guideline on appropriate redirects for advice on reviewing redirects. Inappropriate redirects can be re-targeted or nominated for deletion at RfD.

Disambiguation link notification for March 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Soudamini, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Telugu (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

New Page Review Newsletter No.10[edit]

Hello Dl2000, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!


  • ACTRIAL's six month experiment restricting new page creation to (auto)confirmed users ended on 14 March. As expected, a greatly increased number of unsuitable articles and candidates for deletion are showing up in the feed again, and the backlog has since increased already by ~30%. Please consider reviewing a few extra articles each day.

Paid editing

  • Now that ACTRIAL is inoperative pending discussion, please be sure to look for tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary.

Subject-specific notability guidelines

Nominate competent users for Autopatrolled

  • While patrolling articles, if you find an editor that is particularly competent at creating quality new articles, and that user has created more than 25 articles (rather than stubs), consider nominating them for the 'Autopatrolled' user right HERE.


  • The next issue Wikipedia's newspaper The Signpost has now been published after a long delay. There are some articles in it, including ACTRIAL wrap-up that will be of special interest to New Page Reviewers. Don't hesitate to contribute to the comments sections. The Signpost is one of the best ways to stay up date with news and new developments - please consider subscribing to it. All editors of Wikipedia and associated projects are welcome to submit articles on any topic for consideration by the The Signpost's editorial team for the next issue.

Australian ODI players[edit]

At some point between 25 Feb and today, you made an edit to the page List of Australia ODI cricketers. Unfortunately, before your edit a vandalistic edit was made so that some bogan could pretend he'd made 15,000 runs for Australia when he does not exist. I have reverted everything up to then so, if you wish to make your edit again, please do so. (talk) 20:12, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

Learning how to edit the "Sadananda" article[edit]

Hi Dl2000,

thank you for helping me with my first attempts to create a proper article on Wikipedia! My first mistake was "donating my own texts" from the website which I am running and which was then marked as a copyright problem. I have rephrased my own text now, cut a huge part and given a link to the website instead.

I have, however, deleted references by you (or a former editor) that were not related to the text, as I thought that it works like with a normal article: references must be related to quoted literature in the text. But maybe I am wrong and it works differently here? I meant no offense by deleting it. I just had the impression that it was added only to "save the article" by adding sources and that they could be replaced by better ones. I have now added connected references and hope the quality of the article has improved.

In order to give a more balanced view I have searched for other places where people mention Sadananda like Eidlitz, Ramdas, Veltheim-Ostrau, Sardella or Bon. This seems, to me, to give quite a range. They all mention Sadananda by name, therefore they seem to be relevant to me.

I would appreciate if we could discuss future changes before we are editing the text.

Thanks for the help again!

Trial by Television at Golf Tournaments[edit]

Any reason not to {{Use British English}} on Automatic Computing Engine?[edit]

It's not just about something developed somewhere that's not a former part of British North America, it's about something developed in Britain. Template:EngvarA just redirects to Template:Use American English, and Template:EngvarC just redirects to Template:Use Canadian English; I infer from the discussion for the proposed deletion of that the reason why Template:EngvarB doesn't just redirect to Template:Use British English is that it refers to all the non-North American varieties of English, not specifically to British English.

I'm not sure what articles should be tagged with Template:EngvarB rather than some "Use XXX English" variant. For example, there's Template:Use Australian English, Template:Use Irish English, Template:Use Indian English, etc., so articles about Australian/Irish/Indian/etc. topics could just use those. The proposed-deletion discussion indicates that there have been objections to tagging articles about Australian topics with {{Use British English}}, such as the one here, but presumably using {{Use Australian English}} would be more precise than just {{EngvarB}}.

And Automatic Computing Engine is an article about a British topic, so presumably {{Use British English}} would be appropriate there. Is this change just being done automatically or semi-automatically, without much human intervention? Guy Harris (talk) 01:12, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

@Guy Harris: Upon another review of the article, agreed that the British tag is better. The {{EngvarB}} was applied in error on the side of caution, so will fix that as you suggest. Dl2000 (talk) 01:28, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi. Please take a look at this source, as per this, the population of Purnia is 310,817 but there is another source (which you have cited) which gives another figure. Thanks. — Jakichandan (talk) 00:02, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

@Jakichandan: please see Talk:Purnia#2011 population, the difference seems to be which scope of urban area to use. Dl2000 (talk) 00:49, 10 May 2018 (UTC)


Here's the thing: I don't think the Spock hand connotes the idea of "stop" so much as it's just humorous. Anyway, my goal on Wikipedia is to stop others from editing, so I reverted you. Chris Troutman (talk) 00:37, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.11 25 May 2018[edit]

Hello Dl2000, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!


  • WP:ACREQ has been implemented. The flow at the feed has dropped back to the levels during the trial. However, the backlog is on the rise again so please consider reviewing a few extra articles each day; a backlog approaching 5,000 is still far too high. An effort is also needed to ensure that older unsuitable older pages at the back of the queue do not get automatically indexed for Google.

Deletion tags

  • Do bear in mind that articles in the feed showing the trash can icon may have been tagged by inexperienced or non NPR rights holders. They require your further verification.

Backlog drive:

  • A backlog drive will take place from 10 through 20 June. Check out our talk page at WT:NPR for more details. 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.


  • There will be a large increase in the number of editathons in June. Please be gentle with new pages that obviously come from good faith participants, especially articles from developing economies and ones about female subjects. Consider using the 'move to draft' tool rather than bluntly tagging articles that may have potential but which cannot yet reside in mainspace.

Paid editing - new policy

  • Now that ACTRIAL is ACREQ, please be sure to look for tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary. There is a new global WMF policy that requires paid editors to connect to their adverts.

Subject-specific notability guidelines

  • The box at the right contains each of the subject-specific notability guidelines, please review any that are relevant BEFORE nominating an article for deletion.
  • Reviewers are requested to familiarise themselves with the new version of the notability guidelines for organisations and companies.

Not English

  • A common issue: Pages not in English or poor, unattributed machine translations should not reside in main space even if they are stubs. Please ensure you are familiar with WP:NPPNE. Check in Google for the language and content, tag as required, then move to draft if they do have potential.


  • Development is underway by the WMF on upgrades to the New Pages Feed, in particular ORES features that will help to identify COPYVIOs, and more granular options for selecting articles to review.
  • The next issue of The Signpost has been published. The newspaper is one of the best ways to stay up to date with news and new developments. between our newsletters.

I think you have flagged the page for Singapore Management University as reading like an advert. Could you kindly identify the passages to which you object? Tpjsmu (talk) 09:59, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

@Tpjsmu:: You removed the advert tag without providing any justification for doing so. The article structure and content seemed to be fundamentally unchanged since January, some relatively minor detail changes and some referencing changes. It seemed to resemble a brochure for university programs and facilities, with most citations from primary sources (i.e. the university or related departments). There are a few secondary citations, but probably should have some more of those. Note that the advert tag was placed by @Mean as custard: back in January; that editor may want to take another look to determine if that template is still appropriate. Further discussion on this should be done at Talk:Singapore Management University. Dl2000 (talk) 01:52, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

NPP Backlog Elimination Drive[edit]

Hello Dl2000, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

advertising & promotion about Mario Christian Meyer article[edit]

I am a new Wikipedia contributor , not always aware of your etiquette . I started this new involvement to help an non_governmental_organization with my computer-based knowledge . This NGO deals with ecology and the safeguard of the Amazon and its population .Its founder ,M.C. Meyer is the only permanent person of this structure and needs help .

His article ([1]) can seem as self-promotion as he is the only person working on the subject : this seems to me a justification for that .
About the way of presenting the facts , I have a lot to learn , so could you tell me which edit(s) caused your remarks .
About external links , what is the best way to link one fact to another : reference , note ,external pdf, external website ? (I read that ext.links must be avoided in the main article).
 I hope you will find some minutes to guide a newbie . Thanks.

PS : M.C.Meyer suggested that I insist on the fact that he has got a lot of support for his action from several sources such as UNESCO , French Academy des Sciences , french Universities , Manaus government , etc... Maybe this is not the point of your intervention .
