Request[edit]

There is an important discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Editor Retention about possibly finding a way to salvage Single-purpose editors and transforming them into positive WP collaborators in the general mainspace. I'm sure you run in to many of them as you wander around WP. I'm also sure that every now and then one of the SPA editors rises above the crowd and seems worthy of more of your time and effort. Your personal insight and experience would be appreciated. WP:WER has become a relative ghost town (and I may be one of the few ghosts left in town) and User:Robert's idea may be just the boost the Project needs to revitalize. It's an opportunity for the Project to actually do something beyond handing out awards. I look forward to your participation. Buster Seven Talk 19:04, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 8[edit]

Newsletter • March / April 2016

This month:

Transclude article requests anywhere on Wikipedia

In the last issue of the WikiProject X Newsletter, I discussed the upcoming Wikipedia Requests system: a central database for outstanding work on Wikipedia. I am pleased to announce Wikipedia Requests is live! Its purpose is to supplement automatically generated lists, such as those from SuggestBot, Reports bot, or Wikidata. It is currently being demonstrated on WikiProject Occupational Safety and Health (which I work on as part of my NIOSH duties) and WikiProject Women scientists.

Adding a request is as simple as filling out a form. Just go to the Add form to add your request. Adding sources will help ensure that your request is fulfilled more quickly. And when a request is fulfilled, simply click "mark as complete" and it will be removed from all the lists it's on. All at the click of a button! (If anyone is concerned, all actions are logged.)

With this new service is a template to transclude these requests: {{Wikipedia Requests}}. It's simple to use: add the template to a page, specifying article=, category=, or wikiproject=, and the list will be transcluded. For example, for requests having to do with all living people, just do {{Wikipedia Requests|category=Living people}}. Use these lists on WikiProjects but also for edit-a-thons where you want a convenient list of things to do on hand. Give it a shot!

Help us build our list!

The value of Wikipedia Requests comes from being a centralized database. The long work to migrating individual lists into this combined list is slowly underway. As of writing, we have 883 open tasks logged in Wikipedia Requests. We need your help building this list.

If you know of a list of missing articles, or of outstanding tasks for existing articles, that you would like to migrate to this new system, head on over to Wikipedia:Wikipedia Requests#Transition project and help out. Doing this will help put your list in front of more eyes—more than just your own WikiProject.

An open database means new tools

WikiProject X maintains a database that associates article talk pages (and draft talk pages) with WikiProjects. This database powers many of the reports that Reports bot generates. However, until very recently, this database was not made available to others who might find its data useful. It's only common sense to open up the database and let others build tools with it.

And indeed: Citation Hunt, the game to add citations to Wikipedia, now lets you filter by WikiProject, using the data from our database.

Are you a tool developer interested in using this? Here are some details: the database resides on Tool Labs with the name s52475__wpx_p. The table that associates WikiProjects with articles and drafts is called projectindex. Pages are stored by talk page title but in the future this should change. Have fun!

On the horizon
  • The work on the CollaborationKit extension continues. The extension will initially focus on reducing template and Lua bloat on WikiProjects (especially our WPX UI demonstration projects), and will from there create custom interfaces for creating and maintaining WikiProjects.
  • The WikiCite meeting will be in Berlin in May. The goal of the meeting is to figure out how to build a bibliographic database for use on the Wikimedia projects. This fits in quite nicely with WikiProject X's work: we want to make it easier for people to find things to work on, and with a powerful, open bibliographic database, we can build recommendations for sources. This feature was requested by the Wikipedia Library back in September, and this meeting is a major next step. We look forward to seeing what comes out of this meeting.


Until next time,

Editor of the Week : nominations needed![edit]

The Editor of the Week initiative has been recognizing editors since 2013 for their hard work and dedication. Editing Wikipedia can be disheartening and tedious at times; the weekly Editor of the Week award lets its recipients know that their positive behaviour and collaborative spirit is appreciated. The response from the honorees has been enthusiastic and thankful.

The list of nominees is running short, and so new nominations are needed for consideration. Have you come across someone in your editing circle who deserves a pat on the back for improving article prose regularly, making it easier to understand? Or perhaps someone has stepped in to mediate a contentious dispute, and did an excellent job. Do you know someone who hasn't received many accolades and is deserving of greater renown? Is there an editor who does lots of little tasks well, such as cleaning up citations?

Please help us thank editors who display sustained patterns of excellence, working tirelessly in the background out of the spotlight, by submitting your nomination for Editor of the Week today!

ACC[edit]

Thanks for the email letting me know about suspending my ACC privileges. A couple of months back I "semi-retired", so have cut way back on my WP activity. Good luck to all of you on that project. Onel5969 TT me 19:41, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Jagoganteng, I am not an administrator so I am not able to delete anything. Since you uploaded the photo, you may request it be deleted under {{Db-author}}. DocTree (ʞlɐʇ·ʇuoɔ) WER 17:47, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

Your draft article, Draft:Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club[edit]

Hello, Doctree. It has been over six months since you last edited your Articles for Creation draft article submission, "Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club".

In accordance with our policy that Articles for Creation is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}} or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. JMHamo (talk) 17:52, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know JMHamo. I'll let it go since I don't have the time to properly and actively edit it right now. I saved a copy off-line. If plans work out, I'll be able to research some print publications as references and finish it next summer, 2017. Until then, it would just take up server space. Thanks again and take care, DocTree (ʞlɐʇ·ʇuoɔ) WER 18:31, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

A slip[edit]

Here you appear to have accidentally blanked several messages. DuncanHill (talk) 23:36, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Thank you, DuncanHill. I'm not sure how those entries were removed when I added the shareedIP template. I reverted, then readded the template. Should be OK now. Thanks for letting me know. Take care, DocTree (ʞlɐʇ·ʇuoɔ) WER 00:00, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

You've got mail[edit]

Hey Doctree! I sent you an email Sunday morning related to ACC; since you haven't yet responded to it and you've been active on ACC since I sent it, I wanted to at least make sure you were aware of it. Thanks! FastLizard4 (talkcontribs) 05:42, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Doctree; I've sent you another email regarding ACC which I'd like you to take a look at before handling any further account requests. Thanks, FastLizard4 (talkcontribs) 12:34, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Scale of justice 2.svg Hello, Doctree. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

If you wish to participate in the 2016 election, please review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 22:08, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

I SURE HOPE YOU LIKE CATS!![edit]

Red Kitten 01.jpg

Hello Doctree, This is crazy, because I joined Wikipedia in 2013, and, for some odd reason, I missed your courteous and friendly message!! So now, I'd like to thank you for it (May 2017). I read your page and you certainly have great creds on board. I would still like to contribute to Wikipedia and be a part of this bright and creative group, if I can. My skillset is somewhat diversified; I was a Professor of Nursing at several Colleges and Universities in Canada (paediatrics, cardiology, mental health, infectious diseases, etc.) My husband and I have a small cat rescue and are also fledgling ornithologists (an area where we'll be learning a great deal from others on Wikipedia). I'm quite familiar with.The Young Offenders' Act laws and the Tenant/Landlord Act of Ontario. I have good skills in Grammar, Composition, Precis and some Editing. Being a Canadian (a Crazy Canuck) qualifies me as an amateur expert on knowledge of my country's customs, mores, quirks, (s)languages, societal make-up etc. Don't know if I can assist in any way but I'm willing to try. Amite! :)
