Currencies[edit]

Hi. Any chances of getting these Belgian Congo francs or these pengős in high resolution? I've contacted the Hungarian National Bank for pengős, but they didn't reply. Brandmeistertalk 19:35, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Brandmeister- Next trip to the Smithsonian I will see that they have for those two places. For the Belgian Congo, only that specific note, or anything similar of the period?--Godot13 (talk) 20:00, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
Preferably this, but other Belgian Congo francs are also fine so would be interested in them too, as well as in 500 Swiss francs. I couldn't find decent resolutions in the internet for all those. Thanks in advance. Brandmeistertalk 09:38, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

WikiCup Bonus Points[edit]

Hey Godot, I wanted to check before I did it, but would you be ok if I modified your username in the WikiCup table during the final round so as to include the bonus point scores from the FPs? I'm just trying to think of a way to get those numbers into the table and I think you mentioned something similar in an earlier round. Miyagawa (talk) 08:16, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

Miyagawa- I'm cool with that. Not sure what you have in mind, but give it another shot. If it won't automatically tally by bot, I've been faithfully entering each FP bonus here immediately after I submit it. Perhaps there is a way to have a link directly after my username (like "FP BP") that links to the user page table. Whatever works for you/the Cup...--Godot13 (talk) 08:28, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
Perfect, I'll stick a link to that in. Miyagawa (talk) 08:39, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
Godot, any chance of adding a total row to the bonus points table? It'll just make it easier for people to read. Miyagawa (talk) 19:38, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
Miyagawa - Done.-Godot13 (talk) 20:11, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 September newsletter[edit]

The finals for the 2015 Wikicup has now begun! Congrats to the 8 contestants who have survived to the finals, and well done and thanks to everyone who took part in rounds 3 and 4.

In round 3, we had a three-way tie for qualification among the wildcard contestants, so we had 34 competitors. The leader was by far Scotland Casliber (submissions) in Group B, who earned 1496 points. Although 913 of these points were bonus points, he submitted 15 articles in the DYK category. Second place overall was Philadelphia Coemgenus (submissions) at 864 points, who although submitted just 2 FAs for 400 points, earned double that amount for those articles in bonus points. Everyone who moved forward to Round 4 earned at least 100 points.

The scores required to move onto the semifinals were impressive; the lowest scorer to move onto the finals was 407, making this year's Wikicup as competitive as it's always been. Our finalists, ordered by round 4 score, are:

  1. Belarus Cas Liber (submissions), who is competing in his sixth consecutive Wikicup final, again finished the round in first place, with an impressive 1666 points in Pool B. Casliber writes about the natural sciences, including ornithology, botany and astronomy. A large bulk of his points this round were bonus points.
  2. Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) (FP bonus points), second place both in Pool B and overall, earned the bulk of his points with FPs, mostly depicting currency.
  3. Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions), first in Pool A, came in third. His specialty is natural science articles; in Round 4, he mostly submitted articles about insects and botany. Five out of the six of the GAs he submitted were level-4 vital articles.
  4. Somerset Harrias (submissions), second in Pool A, took fourth overall. He tends to focus on articles about cricket and military history, specifically the 1640s First English Civil War.
  5. Washington, D.C. West Virginian (submissions), from Pool A, was our highest-scoring wildcard. West Virginia tends to focus on articles about the history of (what for it!) the U.S. state of West Virginia.
  6. Somerset Rodw (submissions), from Pool A, likes to work on articles about British geography and places. Most of his points this round were earned from two impressive accomplishments: a GT about Scheduled monuments in Somerset and a FT about English Heritage properties in Somerset.
  7. United States Rationalobserver (submissions), from Pool B, came in seventh overall. RO earned the majority of her points from GARs and PRs, many of which were earned in the final hours of the round.
  8. England Calvin999 (submissions), also from Pool B, who was competing with RO for the final two spots in the final hours, takes the race for most GARs and PRs—48.

The intense competition between RO and Calvin999 will continue into the finals. They're both eligible for the Newcomers Trophy, given for the first time in the Wikicup; whoever makes the most points will win it.

Good luck to the finalists; the judges are sure that the competition will be fierce!

Just to note, I did some additional cleaning on the image - removed some scratches, tears, - and most surprisingly - some stamps and notes at the bottom edge, etc, etc, and uploaded over. Obviously, if the image changes, I need to notify all voters of this fact. Adam Cuerden (talk) 19:24, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
