Websites in iPad 7th gen references[edit]

Hi, thanks for cleaning up the references in iPad (7th generation). But you wound up removing a bunch of the website= and a publisher= where there was actual information listed. Can you put those back in? Thanks. Infoman99 (talk) 17:02, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

April 2017[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at IPad (7th generation) shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. -KAP03(Talk • Contributions • Email) 22:50, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

Changing the date of the rent amount[edit]

You deleted my text of the date change from 1943 to 1974. and you deleted my reference as well. I do not believe that you are correct. The only document from 1934 is the new 1934 Treaty of relations, which does not alter the rental amount. There are very few available documents on the changes to the rental amount, and the book I cited is one. I can send you a picture of the page cited if you are not able to locate the quite definitive volume in your city. ( Martin | talkcontribs 19:23, 12 April 2017 (UTC))

It is 1934, not 1943 that last changed the GTMO rent amount. The amount doesn't matter in reality because the checks just get burned but accuracy is important. I deleted your 1974 date because it conflicts with a reliable modern reference, in this case a book. --Frmorrison (talk) 19:46, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

What is the book? [I have a different book that has the original documents reproduced in it.] ( Martin | talkcontribs 20:00, 12 April 2017 (UTC))

If you look at the document you cite, it does not say that the rent was changed in 1934. Whereas the reference I cited does say that the rent was changed in 1973 amd 1974 and contains the instructions from the government that causes that to happen. You reference is nice in any case, although not especially great - in that any agreement can be modified by mutual consent, so that is hardly a special condition worthy of note. ( Martin | talkcontribs 19:54, 12 April 2017 (UTC))

What is your interest in Guantanamo Bay, by the way, f you don't mind my asking. I feel it is illegal for many reasons. You? ( Martin | talkcontribs 19:59, 12 April 2017 (UTC))

I printed off the PDF you cite, and it suggests for additional reading the Michael J Strauss book, "the Leasing...." which is the one I cite for 1973 ans 1974. So... ( Martin | talkcontribs 20:03, 12 April 2017 (UTC))

Here is the 2010s book. It includes information about the rent change in 1934. If Leasing's book in 1973 has different information perhaps you should upload it since I don't have easy access to that book. --Frmorrison (talk) 20:10, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

Helping with additional content on Blue Apron page[edit]

Hi there, I saw that you helped with a couple of edits to the Blue Apron company page, and would love to know if you are interested or have time in helping me make some additional edits - basic company information, history, recent news, etc. I work for the company and am hoping to work with an independent user to upload some content. I have posted the additions that I'd like to make here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Blue_Apron I tried to very closely adhere to all guidance in terms of linking to verified third party sources for each piece of information, but would of course appreciate any feedback from an experienced Wikipedia user, as I'm new to this.

Let me know if you have time to assist me with this! Many thanks.

Louise.ward (talk) 22:07, 22 May 2017 (UTC)Louise

It is good you initially identified yourself as PR within Blue Apron. I will add some of what you have proposed.--Frmorrison (talk) 13:17, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

New Page Reviewer granted[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Frmorrison. 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. Alex ShihTalk 16:08, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

September 2017[edit]

Please could you keep an eye on isoHunt? The same thing has been happening over there. It is a similar situation to KAT, because the original site is offline. It's probably a sockpuppet and definitely a WP:SPA doing this.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 04:56, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

I haved added isoHunt to my watchlist. I believe it is the same editor as the one vandalizing KAT. I requested protection for isoHunt and my request for KAT was granted so that editors cannot edit that page for a few weeks. --Frmorrison (talk) 13:18, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I am tempted to file a WP:SPI on all of these red user name accounts that have turned up in the last few days with the purpose of making exactly the same edits.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 16:29, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
Please could you keep an eye on Torrent Project as well? It also has attracted the interest of a new account with nothing else to do but alter the URL. I should have filed a WP:SPI by now because whoever is doing it probably is a sock and has a conflict of interest, possibly with clickbait.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 06:08, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
This was reported at ANI and led to Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Marylucygril. Whoever did this has been spamming foreign language Wikis as well.[1]]--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 05:29, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Las Vegas shooting[edit]

I put a sourced statement into the LV article. The source in question is from NY mag. Please explain how it was "poorly written", because I see no issue with it. Gdeblois19 18:05, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

The article says the police returned fire but does not say when this happened, so it is not worth reporting. Did the police fire through the door? Did they fire after the door was blown open? It is poorly written since an hour occurred from police getting near the door and blowing it open, so gives no time frame of that event. NY Mag is a good source but that paragraph is poorly written. --Frmorrison (talk) 18:16, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
  • No, this makes no sense. This makes even less sense--I mean, duh. Drmies (talk) 18:32, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
Just like the NY Mag, the 10 minute statement was poorly written with respect to the timing of events. I am not a great writer, but I know when something is not written properly. I made a tweak to improve it, but it still does not seem right. However, I am not messing with that statement any longer. --Frmorrison (talk) 18:42, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

Studio71[edit]

Hey Frmorrison, hope you're well. Since the Studio71 article was deleted, I took some time to rewrite the article (as it had been through a lot) and created this draft in my sandbox. If you have the time, would appreciate any feedback you have before I bring it back to the talk page and propose that it be restored in this new version. Anything that stands out particularly negatively to you in the article or that could/should be improved? JacobPace (talk) 16:15, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

I think having the article is fine since it is not promotional in tone. You should link the draft on the article's talk page. --Frmorrison (talk) 16:30, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

New Page Review Newsletter No.10[edit]

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

ACTRIAL:

  • ACTRIAL's six month experiment restricting new page creation to (auto)confirmed users ended on 14 March. As expected, a greatly increased number of unsuitable articles and candidates for deletion are showing up in the feed again, and the backlog has since increased already by ~30%. Please consider reviewing a few extra articles each day.

Paid editing

  • Now that ACTRIAL is inoperative pending discussion, 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.

Subject-specific notability guidelines

Nominate competent users for Autopatrolled

  • While patrolling articles, if you find an editor that is particularly competent at creating quality new articles, and that user has created more than 25 articles (rather than stubs), consider nominating them for the 'Autopatrolled' user right HERE.

News

  • The next issue Wikipedia's newspaper The Signpost has now been published after a long delay. There are some articles in it, including ACTRIAL wrap-up that will be of special interest to New Page Reviewers. Don't hesitate to contribute to the comments sections. The Signpost is one of the best ways to stay up date with news and new developments - please consider subscribing to it. All editors of Wikipedia and associated projects are welcome to submit articles on any topic for consideration by the The Signpost's editorial team for the next issue.

Wikipedia Autopatrolled.svg

Hi Frmorrison, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the "autopatrolled" permission to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the autopatrolled right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled.

Invitation to the WikiProject: Video Games[edit]

Hello. As you may know, you were the one who claimed that the G.A.N.G. Awards are not notable. But I feel strongly that Dissident93 is familiar with these awards, and I have a feeling that they may be included or not, so if you want to join in the conversation, then this invitation is the way to go here: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Video games#Are the Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.) and its awards notable or not? --Angeldeb82 (talk) 15:24, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

Invitation to WikiProject Portals[edit]

The Portals WikiProject has been rebooted.

You are invited to join, and participate in the effort to revitalize and improve the Portal system and all the portals in it.

There are sections on the WikiProject page dedicated to tasks (including WikiGnome tasks too), and areas on the talk page for discussing the improvement and automation of the various features of portals.

Many complaints have been lodged in the RfC to delete all portals, pointing out their various problems. They say that many portals are not maintained, or have fallen out of date, are useless, etc. Many of the !votes indicate that the editors who posted them simply don't believe in the potential of portals anymore.

It's time to change all that. Let's give them reasons to believe in portals, by revitalizing them.

The best response to a deletion nomination is to fix the page that was nominated. The further underway the effort is to improve portals by the time the RfC has run its course, the more of the reasons against portals will no longer apply. RfCs typically run 30 days. There are 19 days left in this one. Let's see how many portals we can update and improve before the RfC is closed, and beyond.

A healthy WikiProject dedicated to supporting and maintaining portals may be the strongest argument of all not to delete.

We may even surprise ourselves and exceed all expectations. Who knows what we will be able to accomplish in what may become the biggest Wikicollaboration in years.

Let's do this.

See ya at the WikiProject!

Sincerely,    — The Transhumanist   10:21, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Thank you very much[edit]

The RfC discussion to eliminate portals was closed May 12, with the statement "There exists a strong consensus against deleting or even deprecating portals at this time." This was made possible because you and others came to the rescue. Thank you for speaking up.

By the way, the current issue of the Signpost features an article with interviews about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

I'd also like to let you know that the Portals WikiProject is working hard to make sure your support of portals was not in vain. Toward that end, we have been working diligently to innovate portals, while building, updating, upgrading, and maintaining them. The project has grown to 80 members so far, and has become a beehive of activity.

Our two main goals at this time are to automate portals (in terms of refreshing, rotating, and selecting content), and to develop a one-page model in order to make obsolete and eliminate most of the 150,000 subpages from the portal namespace by migrating their functions to the portal base pages, using technologies such as selective transclusion. Please feel free to join in on any of the many threads of development at the WikiProject's talk page, or just stop by to see how we are doing. If you have any questions about portals or portal development, that is the best place to ask them.

If you would like to keep abreast of developments on portals, keep in mind that the project's members receive updates on their talk pages. The updates are also posted here, for your convenience.

Again, we can't thank you enough for your support of portals, and we hope to make you proud of your decision. Sincerely,    — The Transhumanist   10:53, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

P.S.: if you reply to this message, please {{ping}} me. Thank you. -TT

Nomination of List of most-retweeted tweets for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of most-retweeted tweets is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of most-retweeted tweets until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. — JFG talk 17:03, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.15 16 November 2018[edit]

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

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Frmorrison,

Community Wishlist Survey – NPP needs you – Vote NOW
  • Community Wishlist Voting takes place 16 to 30 November for the Page Curation and New Pages Feed improvements, and other software requests. The NPP community is hoping for a good turnout in support of the requests to Santa for the tools we need. This is very important as we have been asking the Foundation for these upgrades for 4 years.
If this proposal does not make it into the top ten, it is likely that the tools will be given no support at all for the foreseeable future. So please put in a vote today.
We are counting on significant support not only from our own ranks, but from everyone who is concerned with maintaining a Wikipedia that is free of vandalism, promotion, flagrant financial exploitation and other pollution.
With all 650 reviewers voting for these urgently needed improvements, our requests would be unlikely to fail. See also The Signpost Special report: 'NPP: This could be heaven or this could be hell for new users – and for the reviewers', and if you are not sure what the wish list is all about, take a sneak peek at an article in this month's upcoming issue of The Signpost which unfortunately due to staff holidays and an impending US holiday will probably not be published until after voting has closed.

NPR Newsletter No.16 15 December 2018[edit]

Hello Frmorrison,

Reviewer of the Year
New page reviewer of the year cup.svg

This year's award for the Reviewer of the Year goes to Onel5969. Around on Wikipedia since 2011, their staggering number of 26,554 reviews over the past twelve months makes them, together with an additional total of 275,285 edits, one of Wikipedia's most prolific users.

Thanks are also extended for their work to JTtheOG (15,059 reviews), Boleyn (12,760 reviews), Cwmhiraeth (9,001 reviews), Semmendinger (8,440 reviews), PRehse (8,092 reviews), Arthistorian1977 (5,306 reviews), Abishe (4,153 reviews), Barkeep49 (4,016 reviews), and Elmidae (3,615 reviews).
Cwmhiraeth, Semmendinger, Barkeep49, and Elmidae have been New Page Reviewers for less than a year — Barkeep49 for only seven months, while Boleyn, with an edit count of 250,000 since she joined Wikipedia in 2008, has been a bastion of New Page Patrol for many years.

See also the list of top 100 reviewers.

Less good news, and an appeal for some help

The backlog is now approaching 5,000, and still rising. There are around 640 holders of the NPR flag, most of whom appear to be inactive. The 10% of the reviewers who do 90% of the work could do with some support especially as some of them are now taking a well deserved break.


Really good news - NPR wins the Community Wishlist Survey 2019

At #1 position, the Community Wishlist poll closed on 3 December with a resounding success for NPP, reminding the WMF and the volunteer communities just how critical NPP is to maintaining a clean encyclopedia and the need for improved tools to do it. A big 'thank you' to everyone who supported the NPP proposals. See the results.


Training video

Due to a number of changes having been made to the feed since this three-minute video was created, we have been asked by the WMF for feedback on the video with a view to getting it brought up to date to reflect the new features of the system. Please leave your comments here, particularly mentioning how helpful you find it for new reviewers.
