WikiCup 2017 September newsletter[edit]

Round 4 of the WikiCup has ended and we move forward into the final round. In round 4, a total of 12 FAs, 3 FLs, 44 GAs, 3 FLs, 79 DYKs, 1 ITN and 42 GARs was achieved, with no FPs or FTs this time. Congratulations to Peacemaker67 on the Royal Yugoslav Navy Good Topic of 36 items, and the 12 featured articles achieved by Cas Liber (5), Vanamonde93 (3), Peacemaker67 (2), Adityavagarwal (1) and 12george1 (1). With a FA scoring 200 points, and bonus points available on top of this, FAs are likely to feature heavily in the final round. Meanwhile Yellow Evan, a typhoon specialist, was contributing 12 DYKs and 10 GAs, while Adityavagarwal and Freikorp topped the GAR list with 8 reviews each. As we enter the final round, we are down to eight contestants, and we would like to thank those of you who have been eliminated for the useful contributions you have made to the Cup and Wikipedia. The lowest score needed to reach round 5 was 305, and I think we can expect a highly competitive final round.

Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 4 but before the start of round 5 can be claimed in round 5. Remember too that you must claim your points within 10 days of "earning" them. If you are concerned that your nomination will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed. It would be helpful if this list could be cleared of any items no longer relevant. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to reduce the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck, and let the best man (or woman) win! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

September 2017: National Eligibility and Entrance Test[edit]

I would like to bring to your notice that the submitted information is not a promotion and I am in no way affiliated to any party in that webpage. The intention here is to share an information that a private party is also involved in collaboration with a govt agency to organise the entrance exams. This information was ruled out from the official webpage of the Govt websites. Hence I intend to make it open to public through Wikipedia, as I believe this portal is unbiased.

if you think the given informations and citations are inappropriate, citations can be removed. But the information is TRUE.

SCORM page[edit]

Sorry, don't know where I should be leaving my reply, so I'm putting it here. My entry on SCORM page is not different than other entries. Seems completely unfair. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.195.17.118 (talk) 15:25, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

You are completely disregarding what I have to say and are just removing my entries. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.195.17.118 (talk) 16:00, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

You are adding external links to promote your company, they will be removed as per WP:SPAM. Drchriswilliams (talk) 16:42, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ian Bell (journalist), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The Herald (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 10:43, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

Apologies[edit]

I didn't mean to undo your edits on Lisa Kemmerer; I must've somehow had an old version open when I made the fix I was doing. You have my apology. --Nat Gertler (talk) 02:05, 24 October 2017 (UTC)

@Nat Gertler: That's ok, I couldn't figure out what had happened there. I have caused similar slips in the past myself. Thanks for clearing things up. Drchriswilliams (talk) 11:07, 24 October 2017 (UTC)

User Peerreviewed[edit]

I removed the remaining edits from Peerreviewed (talk · contribs). They look like spam to me as well. I assume you didn't remove them all because you got sidetracked. If you think the spammed reference might be suitable to remain somewhere, let me know. --Ronz (talk) 16:40, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

@Ronz: Yes, thanks for cleaning up the remaining articles and for checking I hadn't seen some value in the spammed journal paper. The articles I had left until last had a more narrow focus. Then my attention had turned to other things. Drchriswilliams (talk) 22:04, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
Glad to help. It looks like part of a PhD thesis, so don't expect it should be used anywhere. --Ronz (talk) 00:43, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

WikiProject Women in Red/The World Contest[edit]

Hi. This month The Women in Red World Contest is being held to try to produce new articles for as many countries worldwide and occupations as possible. There is over £3000 in prizes to win, including Amazon vouchers and paid subscriptions. Wikimedia UK is putting up £250 specifically for editors who produce the most quality new women bios for British women, with special consideration given to missing notable biographies from the Oxford Dictionary of Biography and Welsh Dictionary of Biography. If you're not interested in prize money yourself but are willing to participate independently this is also fine, but please add any articles created to the bottom of the main contest page even if not competing. Your participation in the contest and contributing articles on British women from your area or wherever would we much appreciated. Thanks.

WikiCup 2018[edit]

So the 2017 WikiCup has come to an end. Congratulations to the winner, to the other finalists and to all those who took part. 177 contestants signed up, more than usual, but not all of them submitted entries in the first round. Were editors attracted by the cash prizes offered for the first time this year, or were these irrelevant? Do the rules and scoring need changing for the 2018 WikiCup? If you have a view on these or other matters, why not join in the WikiCup discussion about next year's contest?

Harold Shipman / Gavin & Stacey[edit]

Hello Drchriswilliams. You recently removed one of my edits on the Harold Shipman article, seemingly on the basis that I referenced a tabloid source. Please note that tabloid sources are perfectly fine to use on Wikipedia, especially for such a minor/trivial point. For more information, please see WP:PUS. For that reason, I have reverted your revert. Happy to discuss it further with you if you have any concerns. Thank you and kind regards LoveEverybodyUnconditionally (talk) 23:56, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

Hello again Drchriswilliams. It is disappointing that you seem to have no interest or desire to discuss issues. Wikipedia is not your personal project, it is an encyclopaedia ruled by consensus. As I mentioned before, please refer to WP:PUS - tabloid sources are allowed on Wikipedia (whether you agree or not). Sourced trivia is also permitted on Wikipedia as far as I am aware. If I am mistaken, please point me to the correct guidance. Thanks again for your co-operation and understanding. LoveEverybodyUnconditionally (talk) 06:51, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
Hello again Drchriswilliams. There is absolutely no prohibition on using the Daily Mail as a source on Wikipedia. There are limitations, and things to be watchful of, when using it as a source, but there is absolutely not a complete ban on using the Daily Mail as a source. I understand that you may frown upon it, but frankly, your personal opinions are irrelevant. We go by consensus and established Wikipedia policies/guidance. I also must tell you that I am thoroughly unimpressed with your conduct. I have shown willingness to discuss the issue with you in an attempt to reach agreement or better understand your position, but you have decided just to revert my edits instead with zero discussion. Perhaps you could work on this in the future. Anyway, I consider the matter closed. Thanks again for your understanding and have a great day :) LoveEverybodyUnconditionally (talk) 07:26, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
@LoveEverybodyUnconditionally: Were you looking to discuss content? I pointed out in my edit summaries that your edits appeared to repeatedly insert poor quality material which did not have a reliable source to support it. I have added a neutral description of the associated trivia to these pages. Drchriswilliams (talk) 07:34, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
Hello. Please have more consideration for other users here in the future and be less obtuse. Thank you LoveEverybodyUnconditionally (talk) 08:01, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
Hello again Drchriswilliams. I just wanted to let you know that there is a reference to the Daily Mail within the Harold Shipman article that you must have missed. I have already alerted NASA and the Pentagon as a precaution. Should I find anymore references to the Daily Mail on Wikipedia, I will be sure to let you know here immediately. Peace be upon you. LoveEverybodyUnconditionally (talk) 13:54, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
Hello again Drchriswilliams. I have caught another Wikipedia member editing your article about Harold Shipman. His name is Martinevans123. I have a contact at the FBI who assures me they are "closing the net on this guy". Please switch your radio to frequency 7 so that you may receive further updates from the RSPCA as and when they become available. I have also instructed Theresa May to issue a joint statement on this issue with President Trump, words along the lines of "Our two great nations will lead the fight against people editing Wikipedia articles that belong to Drchriswilliams". Stay strong, old boy. LoveEverybodyUnconditionally (talk) 15:34, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

The Back-Up Trust[edit]

The Back-up Trust — Preceding unsigned comment added by MarkBackUp (talkcontribs) 16:58, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

Hello, I've been trying to update The Back-Up Trust web page. I've got secondary sources for several of my additions, but you won't allow them. Here are my suggestions: The charity's working name is Back Up, and that is the name we use in the media, on our website and with the people we support. We never use the name 'The Back-Up Trust' - only in small print and for legal purposes.

We've also changed the services we offer. We don't do holidays or adventure trips, we provide the following services:

Wheelchair Skills Training: https://www.backuptrust.org.uk/support-for-you/wheelchair-skills | Citation: https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2011/may/03/back-up-trust-wheelchair-skills Mentoring: https://www.backuptrust.org.uk/support-for-you/mentoring | Citation: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/julie-hill/realising-there-is-life-a_b_16308354.html Life skills and activity courses: https://www.backuptrust.org.uk/support-for-you/life-changing-courses Support returning to work: https://www.backuptrust.org.uk/support-for-you/back-up-to-work Support throughout your education: https://www.backuptrust.org.uk/support-for-you/children-young-people/school-life

I can find more citations to prove the accuracy of the charity's services if needs be.

I have previously updated the article using sources that appear neutral. I note that you have not suggested any further links that are independent of your organisation. Drchriswilliams (talk) 23:11, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

Striking On-Point Verified Source[edit]

Can you please clarify what you are specifically objecting to? Is it the external link (which seems to me within the stated Wikipedia policy for external links), or is it also the - deleted - remainder of the text, which, as I already stated in my undo explanation, refers to an eminently relevant, professional contribution to the subject? If you object to the external link, what other form and substance reference to the source material do you find acceptable? Would a footnote be in order? Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Moyer55 (talkcontribs) 18:58, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

The material you added appears purely promotional. See WP:NOTADVERTISING. Drchriswilliams (talk) 19:16, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

With all due respect, Chris, the appearance you detect is not supported by the legitimate philosophical substance of the source and its contributory value. Even if this philosopher and his work should be unknown to you, reading his work even in excerpts should convince you that he engages in a legitimate in-depth discussion of the subject and advances it. Advancement that philosophy desperately needs. Let's scrap all the links if you like to avoid the impression of promotion, but the article would lack completeness without a summary of this work. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Moyer55 (talkcontribs) 23:18, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

WikiCup 2018 March newsletter[edit]

And so ends the first round of the competition, with 4 points required to qualify for round 2. With 53 contestants qualifying, the groups for round 2 are slightly smaller than usual, with the two leaders from each group due to qualify for round 3 as well as the top sixteen remaining users.

Our top scorers in round 1 were:

  • United States Aoba47 led the field with a featured article, 8 good articles and 42 GARs, giving a total of 666 points.
  • Germany FrB.TG , a WikiCup newcomer, came next with 600 points, gained from a featured article and masses of bonus points.
  • India Ssven2, another WikiCup newcomer, was in third place with 403 points, garnered from a featured article, a featured list, a good article and twelve GARs.
  • United States Ceranthor, India Numerounovedant, Minnesota Carbrera, Netherlands Farang Rak Tham and Romania Cartoon network freak all had over 200 points, but like all the other contestants, now have to start again from scratch. A good achievement was the 193 GARs performed by WikiCup contestants, comparing very favourably with the 54 GAs they achieved.

Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 1 but before the start of round 2 can be claimed in round 2. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews.

If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Unfair delete of addition[edit]

Dear Dr Chris Thank you for drawing my attention to the rules but I'm kind of lost. Shouldn't the encyclopedia provide all information on the mentioned topic, especially when the latest info was in 2015. Doesn't the development of the topic require an update?

Glasgow Accies rugby[edit]

Hi - noticed you changed the page of the Glasgow Academical Rugby Club. The text you deleted has been restored by the Club itself - please do not edit this again as it is factually correct re recent sponsorship and results. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.6.145.255 (talk) 22:39, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

What is your problem with the history of this rugby club? You are now challenging copyright on the undisputed history of the club - and have not responded to the previous text? The club's own historians have verified the facts from the SRU history - it is correct. The recent seasons results are clear for all to verify per SRU - as are all the listed internationalists and SRU presidents — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.16.37.37 (talk) 22:40, 26 April 2018 (UTC)
I now see your message on the text page - you seem to see the whole page we have as a copyright breach? Please clarify how this page will be restored - as all the history of the club is in public domain - this is one of the oldest clubs in Scotland and is an SRU founder member. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.16.37.37 (talk) 22:45, 26 April 2018 (UTC)
Hi - can you please now email me (glasgowsteph@hotmail.com) or message here to tell me how our club's page will be restored - whether by removal of links to any book etc. or modifying the history text. I await your response. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.16.37.37 (talk) 23:08, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Deleting link[edit]

"What can normally be linked

Wikipedia articles about any organization, person, website, or other entity should link to the subject's official site, if any. An article about a book, a musical score, or some other media should link to a site hosting a legally distributed copy of the work, so long as none of the § Restrictions on linking and § Links normally to be avoided criteria apply. Sites that contain neutral and accurate material that is relevant to an encyclopedic understanding of the subject and cannot be integrated into the Wikipedia article due to copyright issues,[4] amount of detail (such as professional athlete statistics, movie or television credits, interview transcripts, or online textbooks), or other reasons."

As well as the other links that are present. This one is also permitted. Please stop power tripping deleting it. - An editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page—whether involving the same or different material—within a 24-hour period. An edit or a series of consecutive edits that undoes other editors' actions—whether in whole or in part—counts as a revert. Violations of the rule often attract blocks of at least 24 hours. Fourth reverts just outside the 24-hour period may also be taken as evidence of edit-warring, especially if repeated or combined with other edit-warring behavior.

WikiCup 2018 May newsletter[edit]

The second round of the 2018 WikiCup has now finished. Most contestants who advanced to the next round scored upwards of 100 points, but two with just 10 points managed to scrape through into round 3. Our top scorers in the last round were:

  • Scotland Cas Liber, our winner in 2016, with three featured articles
  • Republic of Texas Iazyges, with nine good articles and lots of bonus points
  • India Yashthepunisher, a first time contestant, with two featured lists
  • Cascadia (independence movement) SounderBruce, a finalist last year, with seventeen good topic articles
  • United States Usernameunique, a first time contestant, with fourteen DYKs
  • San Francisco Muboshgu, a seasoned competitor, with three ITNs and
  • South Carolina Courcelles, another first time contestant, with twenty-seven GARs

So far contestants have achieved twelve featured articles between them and a splendid 124 good articles. Commendably, 326 GARs have been completed during the course of the 2018 WikiCup, so the backlog of articles awaiting GA review has been reduced as a result of contestants' activities. As we enter the third round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 2 but before the start of round 3 can be claimed in round 3. Remember too that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them. When doing GARs, please make sure that you check that all the GA criteria are fully met; most of the GARs are fine, but a few have been a bit skimpy.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article nominations, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required).

Tessa Jowell edit[edit]

I have absolutely no idea how those other changes (removal of refs and restoration of content I'd previously removed) occurred in my last edit - I never even went near that part of the article. Must have been a bug. My pc has been acting up this morning. Thanks for the corrections. PaleCloudedWhite (talk) 07:49, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

@PaleCloudedWhite: No worries, this sort of thing can occur during simultaneous editing. I figured that it hadn't been intentional. Drchriswilliams (talk) 08:00, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
(talk page watcher) My theory is that you were viewing this version when you clicked the edit tab. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 08:07, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
@Redrose64: Thanks for the explanation. Drchriswilliams (talk) 08:48, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
@Redrose64: Possibly, though I can't recall seeing the 'you are editing an old version' template at the top of the page. There's something not right with how my pc loads pages this morning - everything takes a million years and 'server not available' pops up with irritating regularity. I suspect that might have something to do with it. PaleCloudedWhite (talk) 09:22, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
