User:Sju hav sockpuppets[edit]

Regarding this edit [1] of mine - I intended to copy an edited version of the sockpuppet tag to User:Habilemonkac. Somehow, I ended up saving that edited tag to User:Creambreek. Thank you for fixing my mistake. Too little caffeine this morning, I think! JoeSperrazza (talk) 13:44, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Yes; thank you for helping with this user. It's an obvious sock of Sju hav; which you can see creates an awful lot of socks; and can be a big problem because he mainly edits Norway-related articles which few editors watchlist or care about. There is a special problem with HabileMonkac since a CU found him technically unrelated, but I agree with you that he should clearly be indeffed based on behavioral evidence; he has all the characteristics of a Sju hav sock.

A new reference tool[edit]

Hello Books & Bytes subscribers. There is a new Visual Editor reference feature in development called Citoid. It is designed to "auto-fill" references using a URL or DOI. We would really appreciate you testing whether TWL partners' references work in Citoid. Sharing your results will help the developers fix bugs and improve the system. If you have a few minutes, please visit the testing page for simple instructions on how to try this new tool. Regards, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:47, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

DYK: Waldemar Hammenhög[edit]

Hello: Thanks for your review! I tried to clarify the issues you've brought up regarding the DYK nomination here: Template:Did you know nominations/Waldemar Hammenhög. --Bruzaholm (talk) 14:03, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks again! No, I wasn't aware that I also had to review other nominations. Surely, I'm glad to do it, but is it too late now, as regards to the Hammenhög article? --Bruzaholm (talk) 10:45, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
Well, I wasn't quite aware that additional revisions were required, but I'm currently reviewing the Arikamedu article for the DYK. Thanks again, --Bruzaholm (talk) 08:46, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 May newsletter[edit]

C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy) is a long-period comet discovered on 17 August 2014 by Terry Lovejoy; and is one of several Featured Pictures worked up by India The Herald (submissions) during the second round.

The second round one has all wrapped up, and round three has now begun! Congratulations to the 34 contestants who have made it through, but well done and thank you to all contestants who took part in our second round. Leading the way overall was Belarus Cas Liber (submissions) in Group B with a total of 777 points for a variety of contributions including Good Articles on Corona Borealis and Microscopium - both of which received the maximum bonus.

Special credit must be given to a number of high importance articles improved during the second round.

The points varied across groups, with the lowest score required to gain automatic qualification was 68 in Group A - meanwhile the second place score in Group H was 404, which would have been high enough to win all but one of the other Groups! As well as the top two of each group automatically going through to the third round, a minimum score of 55 was required for a wildcard competitor to go through. We had a three-way tie at 55 points and all three have qualified for the next round, in the spirit of fairness. The third round ends on June 28, with the top two in each group progressing automatically while the remaining 16 highest scorers across all four groups go through as wildcards. Good luck to all competitors for the third round! Figureskatingfan (talk · contribs · email), Miyagawa (talk · contribs · email) and Sturmvogel 66 (talk · contribs · email) 16:34, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/Political positions of Lincoln Chafee[edit]

It looks to me as if the nominator, responding to your request that a certain section be cited for the nomination to satisfy the DYK criteria, instead deleted the section, though he failed to note this fact on the nomination template. Even though, all paragraphs appear to be cited now, though it doesn't appear that the hook facts are cited by the end of the sentence that contains them. Can you please revisit this review? Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 05:44, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
