Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Tomostethus multicinctus, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cocoon. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Personal attacks[edit]

SL93, sorry, but I consider those comments at Wikipedia talk:Did you know personal attacks, and they certainly are disruptive since they distract from the discussion. You may find plenty of room to disagree with TRM but questioning his credentials is not OK. Thank you, Drmies (talk) 22:12, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

I honestly wasn't trying to, but I can't make people believe me. SL93 (talk) 22:13, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
It should be OK to me though. Many people in real life even don't believe me or go as far as to insult me and treat me like a freak. As someone with Asperger's, I should honestly just get used to it. SL93 (talk) 22:19, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
Well, I don't know if you were trying or not, but calling him an idiot and saying ... well I won't repeat what you said. This has nothing to do with treating someone like a freak; if you didn't intend to insult him, that's great, but the words themselves were insulting. Note that I am telling you this as a fellow editor, not slamming a template down or suggest a block. Thank you, Drmies (talk) 22:27, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
I called Floquenbeam an idiot after he/she called me one. SL93 (talk) 22:28, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
Right--you insulted two editors. If you like I can tell Floq what you think of his comment--but if you claim that TRM hasn't created content this last decade, you can expect some backlash. Drmies (talk) 22:33, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
I thought all I insulted was that editor after being called an idiot. I would rather you not talk to Floq about it because I don't feel like being called names again. SL93 (talk) 22:38, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

Aiming for FA with something...[edit]

Mainpaging is fun - I have done it a few times. One gets a feel for how much content there is and the ease of getting it to FA-hood. Kingsley, Iowa I feel is a little scant but FA status might be achievable with some work. For instance, Puddletown I just reviewed for another editor, and he was able to find out a bit more stuff so it makes for a more detailed well-rounded article. Anyway, might be a time for Peer Review or maybe try get a few more GAs done and then choose one to punt to FAC. Just sayin' Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 11:15, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Kingsley, Iowa[edit]

New Page Review - Newsletter No.4[edit]

Hello SL93,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Since rolling out the right in November, just 6 months ago, we now have 541 reviewers, but the backlog is still mysteriously growing fast. If every reviewer did just 55 reviews, the 22,000 backlog would be gone, in a flash, schwoop, just like that!

But do remember: Rather than speed, quality and depth of patrolling and the use of correct CSD criteria are essential to good reviewing. Do not over-tag. Make use of the message feature to let the creator know about your maintenance tags. See the tutorial again HERE. Get help HERE.

A cupcake for you![edit]

Choco-Nut Bake with Meringue Top cropped.jpg Here's a cupcake just for you. I noticed on your user page about having A.S, which my brother and I also suffer from. It can be a bit panicking at times, but we have found ways to work around it. I appreciate what you did with the AfD, and that a mistake may have occurred. But there is nothing to worry about, mistakes easily happen. Chin up and smile ,my friend! Wes Wolf Talk 03:33, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

RE: DaCast[edit]

Is it possible for me to see what changes there are in the article as compared to the version that was deleted? After all, I only nominated the original article for AfD in the English Wikipedia after having nominated the Spanish version, which had been translated from the English version, for the same reasons (promotional content and the presence of several single-purpose accounts). As an admin in the Spanish Wikipedia, I can review the content of the (now deleted) Spanish version of the article, and it's pretty much the same as the current English version, which seems to have been created by a fresh new single-purpose account. Sabbut (talk) 19:03, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

I think notability has been shown in this case. SL93 (talk) 19:23, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

00:34:35, 13 June 2017 review of submission by NRRyder[edit]


I was hoping for a clarification on the largely unsourced nature of this article. In the introduction I have included many relevant resources to both foundational material and modern results. In the introduction I also mention that the meat of the article is sourced from a recent article which provides an elementary proof of the desired result. For this reason I do not include references in the body of the article (since it all comes from the one reference in the beginning).

I was hoping you could clarify if my introduction needs more references or if I should keep re-referencing the main article I pull the proof sketch from.

Thanks for your time!

I understand what you're saying. I went ahead and accepted the AFC submission, but I tagged it as uncategorized because I'm not sure what the proper Wikipedia categories would be. SL93 (talk) 00:52, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Hospital de San Carlos[edit]

You mentioned at my Talk page, during Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hospital de San Carlos, that you had found sources to support a Hospital de San Carlos article about the one in Spain. There are several sources mentioned in the AFD, either the same or different than what you referred to. Go ahead! --doncram 05:44, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

Recent reviews[edit]

I've noticed you've actually been missing several G11 and G12 cases at AfC recently (some of them clear cut spam as "Our company", "We", etc.), so remember it's important that but to especially state the need to comply with our COI policies. I always take the time to fully read each Draft based on this or even quicker if it's instantly G11 or G12. Let me know if you have questions or need help, SwisterTwister talk 03:25, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

I don't really miss them. I just choose to deny it based on one criteria and there is no way to check multiple at once. SL93 (talk) 03:29, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
As for DaCast, I don't believe it's blatantly spam. SL93 (talk) 03:32, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
  • I wasn't concerned with DaCast as although it's still promotional, the NYT is the best source so there's that. The relevant Drafts are Draft:Achilles the K9, Draft:Contobox, Draft:NOVA Employment, Draft:Brayola, Draft:Ever Widening Circles and Draft:Xplor which were either both G11 and G12 from the company website (Checking for copypaste found it to be sometimes either half of the page or similar) or clear G11 if not copyvio. SwisterTwister talk 03:58, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
    • I guess I can leave a comment about every single issue that I find, but I thought it wasn't a big deal if it was actually denied and not put into article space. SL93 (talk) 04:00, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
      • Actually, still looking in, I noticed St. Peter's Church, CNI was not only G11 but also G12 from their website. SwisterTwister talk 17:10, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to read my submission. I was curious as to which changes I could make before resubmitting. Similar companies in the industry have wiki pages (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Control4), which I looked to for guidance in avoiding coming across as an advertisement. 

Thank you,

Request on 17:18:01, 21 June 2017 for assistance on AfC submission by Aidandiprima[edit]


Hi there SL93, you declined my submission for Philip J. Miller's article, found here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Philip_J._Miller

I understand why it was declined (a lot of the sources are not independent). I have made some changes to focus more heavily on 2 pages that I believe are independent (FACS and CastleConnolly). Could you look this over and see if this is an improvement on what was there before? I got some help from the live chat channel who mentioned that my NYU webpage source, crunchbase, and his website were not independent sources, and that I needed more credible outside sources.

I have also taken out a lot of information that wasn't pertinent and that I couldn't find an independent source for.

I have added in a handful of external links to newspaper, magazine, and website articles where Miller is mentioned. Do these help to add to his notability?

Please let me know if this looks better and/or will be enough for submission. If not, I would appreciate any guidance on what could be changed.

Thank you, Aidan

Hi I have some serious reservations about the notability of this page. For me it fails WP:NORG and notably WPORGDEPTH; It was created by a SPA user that has created a walled garden around it with about a dozen associated pages almost all of which fail WP:NMUSIC and WP:GNG

I have tried to adjust the tone and content to remove any hint of advertisement. I'm writing you now to ask if the new version looks and feels better to you. The problem I'm having is that it's a young company and there are not a lot of articles written about it or the founders or the people who work for it.

We will have to disagree on that. There is no requirement to nominate the articles for deletion for new page reviewing so you are clearly in the wrong. SL93 (talk) 15:38, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

COI editing at RL360°[edit]

This is a courtesy message to confirm the article you curated has been annotated as COI, where the main contributors are two employees. I found this around June, and I've messaged the talk page of most recent contributor at User talk:NigelDanzelman. I am only an occasional contributor and not yet refreshed my memory fully of the background and articles concerning the originator Karin Jam or sent any message. Also pinging for info SwisterTwister.

I am not knowledgeable about company articles so perhaps you'd check for anything else? Many thanks.--Semperito (talk) 16:29, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 14304 pages. We have worked hard to decrease from over 22,000, but more hard work is needed! Please consider reviewing even just a few pages a day.
  • Currently there are 532 pages in the backlog that were created by non-autoconfirmed users before WP:ACTRIAL. The NPP project is undertaking a drive to clear these pages from the backlog before they hit the 90 day Google index point. Please consider reviewing a few today!

Technology update:

  • The Wikimedia Foundation is currently working on creating a new filter for page curation that will allow new page patrollers to filter by extended confirmed status. For more information see: T175225

General project update:

  • On 14 September 2017 the English Wikipedia began the autoconfirmed article creation trial. For a six month period, creation of articles in the mainspace of the English Wikipedia will be restricted to users with autoconfirmed status. New users who attempt article creation will now be redirected to a newly designed landing page.
  • Before clicking on a reference or external link while reviewing a page, please be careful that the site looks trustworthy. If you have a question about the safety of clicking on a link, it is better not to click on it.

New Page Reviewer Newsletter[edit]

Hello SL93, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 12713 pages. Please consider reviewing even just a few pages each day! If everyone helps out, it will really put a dent in the backlog.
  • Currently the backlog stretches back to March and some pages in the backlog have passed the 90 day Google index point. Please consider reviewing some of them!

Outreach and Invitations:

  • If you know other editors with a good understanding of Wikipedia policy, invite them to join NPP by dropping the invitation template on their talk page with: {{subst:NPR invite}}. Adding more qualified reviewers will help with keeping the backlog manageable.

New Year New Page Review Drive

  • A backlog drive is planned for the start of the year, beginning on January 1st and running until the end of the month. Unique prizes will be given in tiers for both the total number of reviews made, as well as the longest 'streak' maintained.
  • Note: quality reviewing is extremely important, please do not sacrifice quality for quantity.

General project update:

  • ACTRIAL has resulted in a significant increase in the quality of new submissions, with noticeably fewer CSD, PROD, and BLPPROD candidates in the new page feed. However, the majority of the backlog still dates back to before ACTRIAL started, so consider reviewing articles from the middle or back of the backlog.
  • The NPP Browser can help you quickly find articles with topics that you prefer to review from within the backlog.
  • To keep up with the latest conversation on New Pages Patrol or to ask questions, you can go to Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Reviewers and add it to your watchlist.
