New page reviewer granted[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Eagleash. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group, allowing you to review new pages and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or in some cases, tag them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is a vital function for policing the quality of the encylopedia, if you have not already done so, you must read the new tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the various deletion criteria. If you need more help or wish to discuss the process, please join or start a thread at page reviewer talk.

  • URGENT: Please consider helping get the huge backlog down to a manageable number of pages as soon as possible.
  • Be nice to new users - they are often not aware of doing anything wrong.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted - be formal and polite in your approach to them too, even if they are not.
  • Don't review a page if you are not sure what to do. Just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Remember that quality is quintessential to good patrolling. Take your time to patrol each article, there is no rush. Use the message feature and offer basic advice.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In case of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, the right can be revoked at any time by an administrator. TonyBallioni (talk) 13:59, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Women's leagues[edit]

Correct, only the US women's league is fully-pro - please see Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Fully professional leagues#Women's leagues. GiantSnowman 14:46, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

As far as I'm aware it's fully up-to-date. GiantSnowman 17:10, 1 March 2018 (UTC)
If they've not played internationally for England or professionally in the US league (thereby failing WP:NFOOTBALL) or if there isn't significant coverage of them (thereby failing WP:GNG) then they are non-notable and should be deleted. GiantSnowman 17:31, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

Sattari Malda, Jian Momin, Binodpur G.P[edit]

I can't quite put my finger on what's going on with this user or users. I have a half baked idea that it's a single user, Jian Momin, who has got the notion you need a separate user account (& userspace draft) for each article. Or it's 3 schoolkids who feel free to take liberties with each others userpages. While there are plenty of competence questions, it doesn't seem to rise to the level of activity which would justify an SPI or checkuser. Any thoughts? Cabayi (talk) 17:56, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

@Cabayi: Thanks for picking up on this. I also thought that a (possibly) sole editor had the mistaken idea that separate accounts are necessary... or maybe they're just a bit OCD!? It's worth keeping an eye on I think. There's little harm done as yet really but if the situation 'develops' any further I will consider at least running it past an Admin. for their input. Cheers.

AfC[edit]

AFC-Logo.svg

Hi, and welcome to WikiProject Articles for creation! We are a group of editors who work together on the Articles for creation and Files for upload pages.

A few tips that you might find helpful:

  • Please take time to fully read the reviewers' instructions before reviewing submissions.
  • The reviewers' talk page is the best place to ask for help or advice. You might like to watchlist this page, and you are encouraged to take part in any discussion that comes up.
  • Article submissions that need reviewing can be found in Category:Pending AfC submissions and there is also a useful list which is maintained by a bot.
  • You might wish to add {{AFC status}} or {{AfC Defcon}} to your userpage, which will alert you to the number of open submissions. There is also a project userbox. If you haven't done so already, please consider adding your name to the list of participants.
  • Several of our members monitor Wikipedia's help IRC channel, and you are welcome to join in to ask Wikipedia-related questions.
  • The IRC channel #wikipedia-en-afc connect is used occasionally for internal discussion regarding the Articles for Creation process, and also serves as a recent changes feed, displaying all edits made in the Articles for Creation namespace.
  • The help desk is the place where new editors can ask questions about their submissions. You are welcome to help in answering their questions.

Once again, welcome to the project.

Added this myself as it was not added when I joined the proj. and the links should be useful. Eagleash (talk) 13:18, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Your guidance is not lost here.[edit]

(Easleash) Thank you for your reminders of core tenets. I will progress very slowly into the world of WIKI. I do not intend to roam about many pages at this time. I'll just address a few I'm comfortable with. Motorcycles- I have some experience there. My first came from a Kawasaki 400 in the 80's followed by a Honda Aero purchased in 2004. All I shall say is I believe Lindy's are the most pragmatic style crash bar and more people should add them to prevent potential loss of limb.

It has been a year since I first attended a Sunday Meetup, and I have been waiting for the time to add my skills to those of this entity I have turned to again and again for years. I will give this my best focus when I log in. If I forget my neutrality in composition, please point out where that is an obvious flaw in need of correction. I will look up how to properly get your name highlighted immediately.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Sound Broadcast Services, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Terrestrial broadcast (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.)

Humber Vogue Sports[edit]

Re the changes I submitted to the Singer Vogue page, the info I provided was based on owning several of these vehicles and speaking first hand with the Engineer employed by Rootes Australia who was involved in the cars developement. I understand that the info provided to the pages needs to be verifiable, unfortunately in this instance it is only anecdotal based on the above circumstances. The info provided by Joe Kenwright in the Unique Cars article re. the differences between the two Vogue models was taken directly from a road test article in a car magazine when the car was new. It was incorrect then and it's still incorrect now. There are various other inaccuracies in the original road test article but fortunately they didn't make it to print in Joe's story.

If the wiki entry cannot be edited due to the new info not being "certifiable" that is unfortunate as it perpetuates the mis information that was printed in 1964. I just wanted one of Rootes least known models to be accurately described for anyone who was interested in learning more about them.Bazell.brush (talk) 13:31, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

@Bazell.brush: Hello, and thank you for leaving a message. You are correct to say that Wikipedia cannot accept 'anecdotal' content. All statements should be verifiable in independent sources and there's a reliance on verifiability rather than truth. As it stands, the changes cannot be accepted as they amount also to original research. If this is a known issue, perhaps an accredited commentator has written about it in a reliable source? If you are able to find such a source you are welcome to edit the page accordingly. On another note, I will leave some useful links at your talk page. Cheers, Eagleash (talk) 13:55, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

United Naga Democratic Party[edit]

Hi, why did you propose this page for deletion citing no sources, when a quick google search reveals plenty of clear sources of WP:V and WP:N? Egaoblai (talk) 22:51, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

@Egaolai: The page contained no sources (and still doesn't) and a google search revealed links which purported to cover the subject but upon examination, did not do so. If you have found sources, then that is a good thing and you are welcome to add them to the page. As a side issue, this page seems to be one of a number by the same author which lack(ed) notability, several of which have been deleted. Cheers. Eagleash (talk) 05:23, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Zhang Jingzhe[edit]

The BLPPROD and PROD systems are slightly different - removing a BLPPROD by adding a reliable source is fine, and does not stop another editor later using the traditional PROD if notability is not established. If the PROD is removed then AFD should be the next step. If a BLPROD is removed with a non-RS (such as Transfermarkt) then revert the edit. GiantSnowman 14:18, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.11 25 May 2018[edit]

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

ACTRIAL:

  • 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.

Editathons

  • 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.

News

  • 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.

Ciera Rogers[edit]

I'm confused why you came to the Ciera Rogers draft page which has been waiting patiently for review only to delete the entire thing? There is nothing wrong with the submission except the first one was denied due to social media links used as references which was changed. Please allow it to stand so it can be reviewed by an editor and put in the public space

Christinagirgis (talk) 01:59, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

@Christinagirgis: I'm afraid I'm not sure what you mean. This was the page when I came to it. When you scroll down, it shows that the entire article has been duplicated. I do not know why that should be the case. After fixing some style (etc.) errors, I fixed some of the bare URLs. Then with two edits I removed the duplicate text leaving this version. Your edit here seems to have restored the page to before I cleaned it up, including restoring bare URLs and duplicated refs., but without re-adding the duplicated content. I note the linkrot tag has been removed although there are still numerous unformatted refs. Cheers. Eagleash (talk) 05:56, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Glen Douglas railway station[edit]

You helped me create a new article, on Glen Douglas railway station. Unfortunately, during the time I was working on it (it took a while to track down the citations) someone else created a similar article, Glen Douglas Siding railway station and I failed to notice this when submitting my draft for publication. Please see my comment on the latter's talk page. Can you advise what is the best way forward, please? Exbrum (talk) 10:12, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

@Exbrum: Hello, That should have been picked-up at review. I must have overlooked it somehow. Yes the two articles should be merged. Full instructions for this can be found at WP:MERGE... and it's not as daunting as it looks at first. I think the convention would be to merge to the 'siding' article as it is pre-existing (in mainspace since last December) but the question of the name needs to be addressed. I think that the current or most recent, name of the station should be the title of the page as the WP:COMMONNAME and its former names can be noted in the content, preferably in the lead. This is something which can be discussed with the creator of the 'other' page &/or at the 'proposed merger' discussion. You can notify the other editor of the merge proposal at their talk page; providing a link to the merger proposal. You could just be WP:BOLD and merge the two pages but I think some discussion is necessary as a courtesy. Good luck. Eagleash (talk) 13:03, 2 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I have left a note on the original author's talk page, as you suggested. Exbrum (talk) 17:29, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
@Exbrum: I spotted that the pages have been 'merged', but the instructions at WP:FMERGE have not been followed. I have left a note at the other editor's page. Eagleash (talk) 12:50, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Therefore I left the page for others to review. Cheers. Eagleash (talk) 11:09, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Chart of the New Pages Patrol backlog for the past 6 months. (Purge)

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

June backlog drive

Overall the June backlog drive was a success, reducing the last 3,000 or so to below 500. However, as expected, 90% of the patrolling was done by less than 10% of reviewers.
Since the drive closed, the backlog has begun to rise sharply again and is back up to nearly 1,400 already. Please help reduce this total and keep it from raising further by reviewing some articles each day.

New technology, new rules
  • New features are shortly going to be added to the Special:NewPagesFeed which include a list of drafts for review, OTRS flags for COPYVIO, and more granular filter preferences. More details can be found at this page.
  • Probationary permissions: Now that PERM has been configured to allow expiry dates to all minor user rights, new NPR flag holders may sometimes be limited in the first instance to 6 months during which their work will be assessed for both quality and quantity of their reviews. This will allow admins to accord the right in borderline cases rather than make a flat out rejection.
  • Current reviewers who have had the flag for longer than 6 months but have not used the permissions since they were granted will have the flag removed, but may still request to have it granted again in the future, subject to the same probationary period, if they wish to become an active reviewer.
Editathons
  • Editathons will continue through August. 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.
The Signpost
  • The next issue of the monthly magazine will be out soon. The newspaper is an excellent way to stay up to date with news and new developments between our newsletters. If you have special messages to be published, or if you would like to submit an article (one about NPR perhaps?), don't hesitate to contact the editorial team here.

Proposed deletion of Stefan Schaal[edit]

Notice

The article Stefan Schaal has been proposed for deletion. The proposed deletion notice added to the article should explain why.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marcocapelle (talkcontribs) 18:10, 6 August 2018 18:10 (UTC)

I Need Your Input On Accessing This Ref[edit]

Greetings, i need your input on access this reference, whether its reliable or not http://theglobeonline.news/entertainment/mic-diggy-apologies-to-slap-d-on-znbc-radio-4s-hip-hop-eardrum/ Regards and get well soon buddy Vicmullar (talk) 09:03, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

@Vicmullar: Quite hard to say: At the bottom of the page there's a contact address and a 'mission statement' which refers to 'editorial content' which gives the impression of a degree of overview. However, the only author name is 'Martin' which could be a username and at the bottom of the page there's a link for 'Admin login' which may or may not mean some degree of user-generated content — may just be for moderating reader comments. You could try asking at WP:RSN. Bearing in mind that the article has already attracted some controversy, I should proceed with caution. Cheers. Eagleash (talk) 09:50, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

I noticed the user name too. When i clicked on it, it presented 'MARTIN MPAKATENI' i'm guessing he is the writer for the newspaper, i first saw this on their hard copy newspaper. Noted. Thanks alot. Vicmullar (talk) 10:00, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Your draft article, Draft:Luke Dreher[edit]

Hello, Eagleash. It has been over six months since you last edited the Articles for Creation submission or Draft page you started, "Luke Dreher".

In accordance with our policy that Wikipedia 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}}, {{db-draft}}, 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. ―Susmuffin Talk 16:22, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

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

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Other
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).
