Hi![edit]

Now, that's a username I haven't seen appear in my watchlist for a long time. Hi, Status! :) Acalamari 20:47, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

@Acalamari: Haha, hi Acalamari! Yeah, I don't have much time for editing nowadays; I just drop by from time to time. Cheers! — Status (talk · contribs) 22:08, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Dear Status[edit]

This time I decided to be polite as I can be. Please stop reverting, restoring, removing (whatever you think it fits) my contributions. As far as you can easily see, most of time I only add bonus tracks to tracklists on album pages. Over all those times I tried to keep my stuff where I put. But it really gets boring, you know what I mean? We don't have to play like this, because even if I love contributing you know I have a life as well, like you, like everyone else and can't keep up with my stuff here all time. +Tracklist is a kind of hobby for me and I do not add unreliable sources like Discogs if I can reach the store pages etc. I know you're trying to make wikipedia better but so do I. Thank you for your concern in advance. Have a nice day...

The Ride[edit]

Hello. Please refrain from reverting my edit of the singles on "The Ride." Furtado has said in an interview that there will not be any singles from the album. If you still somehow have an argument, please talk it out with me here like an adult, instead of being childish by reverting it without giving any reason at all. Thank you. Also, as a side note, you might want to remove the retired thing on your main page, as you're clearly not retired. 2600:387:3:803:0:0:0:7F (talk) 20:30, 20 February 2017 (UTC) I'll message you here, since it seems you are unable to message me back, unfortunately. They are not singles, and if they are, tell me how they are. If I can give you an example of how you're wrong, take "John Wayne" by Lady Gaga. She released a music video for the song, but it's not considered a single on the album page for "Joanne" because she never announced it as a single. Similarly, Nelly specifically said there will be no singles, so how can you possible argue that they are singles? You can't just say something and act like your word makes it true. If that were the case, I would be able to say that I'm rich and have it be true. 2600:387:3:803:0:0:0:90 (talk) 02:28, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Upcoming changes to wikitext parsing[edit]

Hello,

There will be some changes to the way wikitext is parsed during the next few weeks. It will affect all namespaces. You can see a list of pages that may display incorrectly at Special:LintErrors. Since most of the easy problems have already been solved at the English Wikipedia, I am specifically contacting tech-savvy editors such as yourself with this one-time message, in the hope that you will be able to investigate the remaining high-priority pages during the next month.

There are approximately 10,000 articles (and many more non-article pages) with high-priority errors. The most important ones are the articles with misnested tags and table problems. Some of these involve templates, such as infoboxes, or the way the template is used in the article. In some cases, the "error" is a minor, unimportant difference in the visual appearance. In other cases, the results are undesirable. You can see a before-and-after comparison of any article by adding ?action=parsermigration-edit to the end of a link, like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Foss?action=parsermigration-edit (which shows a difference in how {{infobox ship}} is parsed).

If you are interested in helping with this project, please see Wikipedia:Linter. There are also some basic instructions (and links to even more information) at https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-ambassadors/2018-April/001836.html You can also leave a note at WT:Linter if you have questions.

Thank you for all the good things you do for the English Wikipedia. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 21:18, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:In This Skin 2.png[edit]

Peer review newsletter #1[edit]

Introduction[edit]

Hello to all! I do not intend to write a regular peer review newsletter but there does occasionally come a time when those interested in contributing to peer review should be contacted, and now is one. I've mailed this out to everyone on the peer review volunteers list, and some editors that have contributed to past discussions. Apologies if I've left you off or contacted you and you didn't want it. Next time there is a newsletter / mass message it will be opt in (here), I'll talk about this below - but first:

  • THANK YOU! I want to thank you for your contributions and for volunteering on the list to help out at peer review. Thank you!
  • Peer review is useful! It's good to have an active peer review process. This is often the way that we help new or developing editors understand our ways, and improve the quality of their editing - so it fills an important and necessary gap between the teahouse (kindly introduction to our Wikiways) and GA and FA reviews (specific standards uphelp according to a set of quality criteria). And we should try and improve this process where possible (automate, simplify) so it can be used and maintained easily.

Updates[edit]

It can get quite lonely tinkering with peer review...
With a bit of effort we can renovate the place to look like this!

Update #1: the peer review volunteers list is changing[edit]

The list is here in case you've forgotten: WP:PRV. Kadane has kindly offered to create a bot that will ping editors on the volunteers list with unanswered reviews in their chosen subject areas every so often. You can choose the time interval by changing the "contact" parameter. Options are "never", "monthly", "quarterly", "halfyearly", and "annually". For example:

  • {{PRV|JohnSmith|History of engineering|contact=monthly}} - if placed in the "History" section, JohnSmith will receive an automatic update every month about unanswered peer reviews relating to history.
  • {{PRV|JaneSmith|Mesopotamian geography, Norwegian fjords|contact=annually}} - if placed in the "Geography" section, JaneSmith will receive an automatic update every yearly about unanswered peer reviews in the geography area.

We can at this stage only use the broad peer review section titles to guide what reviews you'd like, but that's better than nothing! You can also set an interest in multiple separate subject areas that will be updated at different times.

Update #2: a (lean) WikiProject Peer review[edit]

I don't think we need a WikiProject with a giant bureaucracy nor all sorts of whiz-bang features. However over the last few years I've found there are times when it would have been useful to have a list of editors that would like to contribute to discussions about the peer review process (e.g. instructions, layout, automation, simplification etc.). Also, it can get kind of lonely on the talk page as I am (correct me if I'm wrong) the only regular contributor, with most editors moving on after 6 - 12 months.

So, I've decided to create "WikiProject Peer review". If you'd like to contribute to the WikiProject, or make yourself available for future newsletters or contact, please add yourself to the list of members.

Update #3: advertising[edit]

We plan to do some advertising of peer review, to let editors know about it and how to volunteer to help, at a couple of different venues (Signpost, Village pump, Teahouse etc.) - but have been waiting until we get this bot + WikiProject set up so we have a way to help interested editors make more enduring contributions. So consider yourself forewarned!

And... that's it!

I wish you all well on your Wikivoyages, Tom (LT) (talk) 00:31, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
