Hi Feldbum! Do you have any information about what's going to happen? it's been more than 2 weeks now without any news. Thank you,

New Page Review needs your help[edit]

Hi FeldBum,

As an AfC reviewer you're probably aware that a new user right has been created for patrolling new pages (you might even have been granted the right already, and admins have it automatically).

Since July there has been a very serious backlog at Special:NewPagesFeed of over 14,000 pages, by far the worst since 2011, and we need an all out drive to get this back down to just a few hundred that can be easily maintained in the future. Unlike AfC, these pages are already in mainspace, and the thought of what might be there is quite scary. There are also many good faith article creators who need a simple, gentle push to the Tea House or their pages converted to Draft rather than being deleted.

Although New Page Reviewing can occasionally be somewhat more challenging than AfC, the criteria for obtaining the right are roughly the same. The Page Curation tool is even easier to use than the Helper Script, so it's likely that most AfC reviewers already have more than enough knowledge for the task of New Page Review.

It is hoped that AfC reviewers will apply for this right at WP:PERM and lend a hand. You'll need to have read the page at WP:NPR and the new tutorial.

Prepex[edit]

Sorry. Dr Aaij (talk) 19:02, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

For editing an article I created three years ago? No need to apologize. Edit away. That's how Wikipedia works! --FeldBum (talk) 20:18, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
I was really hoping you'd see that you made what one might call a somewhat noteworthy error. Dr Aaij (talk) 02:17, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
Well a snarky "Sorry" (and deleting my comments on your talk page) was clearly the best method of edification, so thanks! --FeldBum (talk) 03:49, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

COI Requests[edit]

Hi FeldBum. I was hoping you might have a minute to take a look at a few discussions where I have disclosed a COI and asked a question or requested a change. Most of these pages probably aren't on many watchlists and don't have much editor interest.

Here I asked a basic question about the best approach to fixing 100+ broken links where the archived links do work (I can do the grunt work). discussion Here I've raised an issue with a BLP page that is mostly made up of poorly-sourced controversies and promotion, suggesting an axe to half the article. draft Here I've taken a second stab at a draft page proposed as a replacement for a poor-quality/promotional page in mainspace now, that consists mostly of indiscriminate lists.

If you do have a minute to take a look into any/all/some of these, your time would be appreciated! Best regards. CorporateM (Talk) 19:45, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

Sure. I'll take a look now. --FeldBum (talk) 20:27, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
Hi FeldBum. Is this still on your radar? There's no rush; just trying to figure out if I need to keep shopping for someone willing to take a look. CorporateM (Talk) 13:44, 8 April 2017 (UTC)
