New page patrol – Survey Invitation


Hello Dominus! The WMF is currently developing new tools to make new page patrolling much easier. Whether you have patrolled many pages or only a few, we now need to know about your experience. The survey takes only 6 minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist us in analyzing the results of the survey; the WMF will not use the information to identify you.

  • If this invitation also appears on other accounts you may have, please complete the survey once only.
  • If this has been sent to you in error and you have never patrolled new pages, please ignore it.

Please click HERE to take part.
Many thanks in advance for providing this essential feedback.


You are receiving this invitation because you have patrolled new pages. For more information, please see NPP Survey

Is it Cooper's Corners or Cooper's Corner?[edit]

I noticed that you changed my edit from Cooper's Corner back to Cooper's Corners. I'm going to explain to you why I changed it from Corners to Corner.

Click on the following links:

http://www.lohud.com/story/money/real-estate/lohud-real-estate/2015/06/28/coopers-corner-nursery-closes/29438413/

I have known about Cooper's Corner for more than 50 years, and it was ALWAYS referred to as Cooper's Corner, NOT Cooper's Corners. I try to be very careful with my edits. I did notice that the images in the article are identified as Cooper's Corners, but the school and the nursery were always referred to as Cooper's Corner.

The US Geographic Names Information Service says that the name of the place is Cooper's Corners, with the extra S. This is the authoritative source, cited in the article, and Wikipedia follows published official sources whenever possible. The GNIS nomenclature should be followed unless there is some other authoritative source that says otherwise. So far, none has come to light.
All your links point to the Montessori school. Your Google link displays an icon for the Cooper's Corner Montessori School, not for Cooper's Corners itself. A Google search for Cooper's Corners https://www.google.com/#q=cooper%27s+corners selects the correct map with an icon at Cooper's Corners. I do not dispute that the Montessori school is named "Coopers Corner Montessori School". But the article is not about the school.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability 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, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
