An award for you![edit]

சூப்பர்ஸ்டார் ரஜினிகாந்த் - Actor Rajinikanth.jpg The Rajinikanth Award of Excellence and Bravery
Rajinikanth, as an actor, is known for his larger-than-life persona with exceptional confidence and charming optimism. Your efforts to bring Portsmouth to GA status indeed is a notable victory. Though the article's quality was debatable, your efforts were not. I give away this award to you too; I gave this to many exceptional editors in the past who have accomplished such hard tasks. Cheers! Pavanjandhyala (talk) 05:32, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
Thank you so much, Pavan! It's always an honour to receive a Rajinikanth award! Portsmouth is definitely the biggest thing I've done on here, and I'm glad that I made the choice to leave behind the obscure video games and move onto something more worthwhile. This is not the last "big article" I'm going to promote though. More to come! JAGUAR  11:58, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

You did very well, considering the scale of the task and people criticizing your work! ♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:34, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! Can't thank you enough for the excellent review - it was just what it needed. JAGUAR  19:45, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

Cliff Clinkscales FA nomination[edit]

Because you spent some time helping it reach GA-class, I thought you might be interested in helping Cliff Clinkscales become a featured article. If so, please head over to the nomination and leave your comments. TempleM (talk) 23:58, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

I will take a look at it soon, but I'll be a bit busy for the next couple of days. JAGUAR  14:24, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
@Jaguar: Thank you. TempleM (talk) 19:47, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Adrian Moss (basketball, born 1988) GA nomination[edit]

Hello, I recently nominated the Adrian Moss (basketball, born 1988) article for good article candidacy, and I was wondering whether you could take a look. If you have the time and interest, please go ahead and start the review. It is rather brief, so it should not take too long to check out. However, please prioritize the Cliff Clinkscales featured article nomination that I told you about before. TempleM (talk) 21:51, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

I will take a look at Cliff Clinkscales shortly and will review Adrian Moss afterwards, I won't be long! JAGUAR  11:28, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

I'm back Its MaranoFan again. How you been mentor?--09:48, 13 October 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by MaranoBoy (talkcontribs)

Hey MF! How are you? I'm very happy that you're back. I wondered where you went off to. JAGUAR  11:15, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
BTW Check the LIGLY article. I addressed the concerns.--MaranoFan (talk) 11:17, 13 October 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by MaranoBoy (talkcontribs)
Looking a lot better! If you renominate it I'll review it. JAGUAR  11:19, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

That was swift, thank you so much. AATB will be my next project but I don't plan on getting around to it anytime soon haha-MaranoFan (talk) 12:05, 13 October 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by MaranoBoy (talkcontribs)
It's OK. It looked like it met the criteria anyway after you addressed all of the previous concerns. JAGUAR  12:06, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Peace Barnstar Hires.png The Barnstar of Diplomacy

Thanks! JAGUAR  15:46, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

Please change your approach to GA reviewing[edit]

I've undone your GA promotion of Swaziland at the 2012 Summer Olympics. While you checked the article for grammar and typos, you apparently didn't check whether the sources supported the claims and whether the facts weren't simply wrong. I've listed a number of serious errors in the article which I found through a first reading of it. Please, when you do GA reviews, start with fact-checking. A well-written but incorrect or unsupported article should never be a GA. Fram (talk) 08:50, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

I actually did spotcheck the sources on the first lot of GANs yesterday but last night I got so tired that I must have skimped on Swaziland's I think. I'll take another look at it. JAGUAR  17:42, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

British English usage[edit]

Hi Jaguar, can you create a similar template like what you did on Malaysia article {{Editnotices/Page/Malaysia}}, for Sabah {{Editnotices/Page/Sabah}} and Sarawak {{Editnotices/Page/Sarawak}} just like in the US state of California {{Editnotices/Page/California}} that using American English. Face-wink.svg Molecule Extraction (talk) 13:26, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

Sure thing, added! Let me know if you want other notices creating. JAGUAR  17:43, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, also {{Editnotices/Page/George Town, Penang}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Johor Bahru}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Kota Kinabalu}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Kuala Lumpur}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Kuala Terengganu}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Kuching}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Labuan}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Malacca City}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Miri, Malaysia}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Sandakan}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Sibu}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Tawau}} and {{Editnotices/Page/Victoria, Labuan}}. Molecule Extraction (talk) 04:22, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
All done! JAGUAR  15:52, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
Many thanks! As Malaysia is using British English so all states together with its state capitals are also using British English. Can you do to {{Editnotices/Page/Alor Setar}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Kedah}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Penang}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Ipoh}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Perak}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Johor}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Kota Bharu}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Kelantan}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Kangar}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Perlis}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Ipoh}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Perak}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Malacca}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Terengganu}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Kuantan}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Seremban}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Negeri Sembilan}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Pahang}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Shah Alam}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Petaling Jaya}}, {{Editnotices/Page/Selangor}} and {{Editnotices/Page/Putrajaya}} as well. This is the last, sorry for not listing at once for all. Face-grin.svg Molecule Extraction (talk) 12:45, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
No problem, all done once again. I'm more than happy to create others if need be. I think a lot of African and Asian countries could also use the templates if they use British English too. JAGUAR  16:43, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

GAs[edit]

Hi. When you promote the GAs can you update the tally on the main page and add a GA icon before the article title?♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:48, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Will do. Sorry I never thought to do that! JAGUAR  15:53, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

GAR[edit]

Like I'm Gonna Lose You, an article that you or your project may be interested in, has been nominated for an individual good article reassessment. If you are interested in the discussion, please participate by adding your comments to the reassessment page. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, the good article status may be removed from the article.  — Calvin999 07:55, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Eega[edit]

Eega has become a FA finally, Jaguar! I am so so happy for that. Just want to share this with you and others. :-D Pavanjandhyala (talk) 14:57, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

Well done Pavan!! Hopefully this brings on a good winning streak of successful FAs! JAGUAR  12:14, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
Haha, Jaguar! That cannot happen. When Eega's 1st FAC was happening, i faced a personal loss (you were self-blocked then). I lied down for nearly two months and you did review one of my GANs, Oopiri. This is the 2nd FAC of Eega. Though it is great enough to have a successful streak of FAs, it is also foolish enough to expect that to happen. You know why ;-) Pavanjandhyala (talk) 12:19, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
I completely understand; I have more failed FACs than successful ones so I know how it feels. Just when you think things are going well the nomination could take a turn for the worst at any moment. FAs are risky but then again they are meant to showcase the best articles on Wikipedia! JAGUAR  12:27, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
Exactly. The first FAC was like that. Five supports came quickly and i thought i would win. Then two opposes, and this tragedy. I never cared about the oppose; with proper help from that party, things would have been amended which is sure to happen considering who they were. But after the loss, i felt that i may not handle this with certain patience and dignity which it actually requires. So, i withdrew it. So, how are things going with you these days? Pavanjandhyala (talk) 12:31, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
I'm sorry to hear that, it can be disheartening when you lost out of a FAC which you thought was going to be successful. It's happened to me twice. I'm doing OK, thank you, I have a FAC open at the moment but I'm waiting for it to close successfully so I can hurry up and nominate Portsmouth! I took out a grant with the foundation and I have to make the most out of the books they gave me, so I'm anxious to see if it will pass or not. JAGUAR  12:56, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
I am feeling better now, and am doing well. Watching some good and bad Indian films (non-Indian too; loved Brooklyn and The Intouchables but am feeling numb after the recent Batman vs Superman film). Mostly on GAs now, though none are actually ready at the moment. All the best for your FAC, and since Corinne has copy-edited Portsmouth, I'm sure the prose shall be very better now. I am sure about that. Pavanjandhyala (talk) 13:07, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
Batman vs Superman is meant to be terrible from what I've heard! I stay away from superhero films myself, they're not my preference. I like watching Indian films, and the other day I actually watched a North Korean film! I actually haven't watched that many English language films lately. If there are any other enjoyable/clever Telugu films I'll be glad to watch them :-D JAGUAR  13:10, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

If you want to watch a Telugu film this week, you can try this. A quite breezy love story. Pavanjandhyala (talk) 13:32, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Thanks! Ah 2014, my second favourite year. JAGUAR  13:40, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
Watch it leisurely. And let me know how you felt. Pavanjandhyala (talk) 13:48, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the review, Jaguar. Well, did you watch the film? Pavanjandhyala (talk) 17:25, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Portsmouth[edit]


As you can see, I copy-edited the entire article, not just the two sections you mentioned in your request (I had forgotten about your request to copy-edit just the history and culture sections). One of the last things I did was to make the punctuation after initial "In + year" phrases consistent. Most had commas, but some didn't, so I added the comma on the ones that were missing one, even though I prefer no comma. My impression is that writers of British English prefer the comma. If, by some chance, you also prefer no comma after initial "In + year" phrases, let me know and I'll remove them. (I've checked, and learned that the comma is optional – either way is all right – but it is important to be consistent, whichever style is chosen.)  – Corinne (talk) 00:55, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Thank you so much for copyediting Portsmouth, Corinne! I'm strongly considering nominating it at FAC soon, so a fresh copyedit was needed throughout the whole article. I'm not sure if the comma after "in year" is British English or not, sometimes I find it appropriate to add one and other times I don't. I think we'll stick with the comma. I know that things are hyphenated more frequently in British English but sometimes I skip them altogether. By the way, South East England is always capitalised – as with all other English regions like North East etc. Thanks again! JAGUAR  12:17, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Final FAC[edit]

Since you were the reviewer of Bradley Cooper for GA, I would like to inform you that it has been nominated for FA in case you want to provide a review or a source review which you usually do. No problem if you cannot.

I wish you best of luck with your future endeavour. Regards, FrB.TG (talk) 18:27, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

What is "User did not have a podium finish" in GA cup?[edit]

I was just passing by the archives of GA cup held in the past. In judging criteria, I observed this sentence — User did not have a podium finish — I don't know what it means. i also see that in 2016 cup finals User:Sainsf was not awarded the first place stating the same reason, thought he scored highest number of points. Could you please explain what it means? Regards, Krishna Chaitanya Velaga (talk • mail) 02:43, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Krishna_Chaitanya_Velaga, "user did not have podium finish" means that they did not come in at least third place. A podium usually consists of three places; third, second and first, so MPJ-DK and J Milburn were in fifth and fourth, respectively. Sainsf won the 2016 GA Cup, did he not? I don't know why his colour isn't gold. JAGUAR  20:46, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, that is why I am confused. I has the highest points count, but the colour was update, though the second and third were. Regards, Krishna Chaitanya Velaga (talk • mail) 00:24, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

WikiProject Good Articles's 2016-2017 GA Cup
Symbol support vote.svg

Greetings, all!

We would like to announce the start of the 4th GA Cup, a competition that seeks to encourage the reviewing of Good article nominations! Thus far, there have been three GA Cups, which were successful in reaching our goals of significantly reducing the traditionally long queue at GAN, so we're doing it again. Currently, there are over 400 nominations listed. We hope that we can again make an impact this time.

The 4th GA Cup will begin on November 1, 2016. Four rounds are currently scheduled (which will bring the competition to a close on February 28, 2017), but this may change based on participant numbers. We may take a break in December for the holidays, depending on the results of a poll of our participants taken shortly after the competition begins. The sign-up and submissions process will remain the same, as will the scoring.

Sign-ups for the upcoming competition are currently open and will close on November 14, 2016. Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors, so sign-up now!

If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the judges.

Cheers from 3family6, Figureskatingfan, Jaguar, MrWooHoo, and Zwerg Nase. We apologize for the delay in sending out this message until after the competition has started. Thank you to Krishna Chaitanya Velaga for aiding in getting this message out.

To subscribe or unsubscribe to future GA Cup newsletters, please add or remove your name to our mailing list. If you are a participant, you will be on the mailing list no matter what as this is the easiest way to communicate between all participants.

Template:Did you know nominations/Burning Rangers[edit]

Jaguar, your recent promotion of your own hook to Prep 3 was reverted by Mandarax. Since you seem unfamiliar with how DYK works, you should know that it is considered a conflict of interest for a nominator to promote their own nomination, or for the promoter to be the same person as proposed the promoted hook or approved the nomination. You also did not do the promotion correctly, which would have been a problem even had it not been your own hook.

The hook will be promoted in due course—there is currently a backlog of over 80 approved hooks, or over 10 days worth, so it may take a week or even two. Please be patient. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 19:06, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

Thanks BlueMoonset. It's been over a year since I last nominated something at DYK and I'm unfamiliar with the process. I thought the nomination was sitting there for too long and I got worried, but it's comforting to know that it will eventually reach the queue. JAGUAR  19:55, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

GA noms awaiting review[edit]

Hi Jaguar! Firstly let me start off by saying how much I think your work here means to the project; reviewing over 500 GA noms! I remember you as the reviewer who passed my GA noms of Talk:Gianluigi Buffon/GA1 and Talk:Andrea Pirlo/GA1 this past summer. I thought you did a great job with the reviews. We know how long it can take for GA noms to be reviewed, and I was randomly reading your user page and suggested "so if you want a GAN or FAC review done, just ask, I could probably make time for that". Now, I know we're all busy and everything, but I would really appreciate it if you could review some of my noms if you have some spare time :)...Like the last noms of mine you passed, these should be in top shape and shouldn't take to long to review. I and User:Messirulez will be around to make any adjustments ASAP. My noms are Roberto Baggio, Alessandro Del Piero, Paul Pogba (these three are relatively old from July/August), Sebastian Giovinco and Francesco Totti (these two are relatively new from November). Again, if you time, I would really appreciate it. Select at your leisure. Thank you!! Vaselineeeeeeee★★★ 20:19, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi Vaselineeeeeeee, thanks for the kind words! I'll be happy to take a few of your noms, or hopefully all of them. Bearing in mind I think I was doing that GAN sweep this summer which explains the shorter than usual reviews, but your articles were in great shape anyway so there weren't many issues to raise! I'll reserve a couple tonight and should start reviewing them in the morning. I'm just 200 more reviews away from being the most prolific reviewer on Wikipedia LOL. JAGUAR  22:14, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your assistance! That would be quite an achievement, best of luck! Regards, Vaselineeeeeeee★★★ 22:44, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

ysrnry.co.uk down[edit]

Something went down with Your Sinclair Rock n Roll Years and the whole site has been down for some time. Wanted to give you a heads up as it broke a lot of my links too, though it looks like the Internet Archive can fill in without gaps. Heading back to these Rare articles eventually & looking forward to continuing that jagczar WP soon, czar 22:51, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Thanks czar, I noticed that it went down a few days ago when I was looking for reviews. I was pondering the idea of going on another mass ZX Spectrum GA spree again but sadly I'm not so sure at the moment. It's going to be a pain but at least they can still be archived! I wonder what WikiProject Jagczar can produce next time? JAGUAR  23:12, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Template:Editnotices/Page/Laos[edit]

Mr. Jaguar, can you update this yellow template to the white latest one like in Template:Editnotices/Page/Malaysia? (: 103.250.143.81 (talk) 16:43, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

Done! JAGUAR  16:44, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

GA reviews[edit]

Hi, which harvref error, had a look and didn't see it? In unrelated note, beware of the stats dump of 2015–16 Bengaluru FC season. That's a WP:NOSTATS violation, their age, where they're originally from is not relevant to the season events, it's for the players article. Check the various GA season articles at WP:Football. Stats dumps are widespread, but GA should never have them, appearances and goals are the only thing related to the season.--Threeohsix (talk) 22:21, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi, if I recall correctly I think there was a broken harvref at the very bottom of the article, but I can't remember. It's a very minor issue though and shouldn't have interfered with the review! Thanks for telling me about the WP:NOSTATS violation, I wasn't aware of that. I'll let Coderzombie know. JAGUAR  14:42, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
If you have time, please review my remaining nominations. It wouldnt take much time. Season 04-05 to 08-09.Threeohsix (talk)
Sure, I might get to them tonight but if not it will definitely be tomorrow. Rest assured I'll have the sports backlog cleared soon. JAGUAR  18:38, 28 November 2016 (UTC)
When I meant 04-05 to 08-09, I was talking about all five seasons. The articles are all similar, so its easy just doing a review of all of them.Threeohsix (talk)
Don't worry, I'll review them all by tomorrow! I got too many GANs open at the moment but I'll review yours first. JAGUAR  18:55, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

GA review needed[edit]

I'd be obliged if you could find time to review Jamestown, Saint Helena before the end of the 27th for the Africa De-stubathon.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 16:58, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

I saw that yesterday and was actually going to take it! Done. JAGUAR  16:59, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Bug![edit]

The article Bug! you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:Bug! for things which need to be addressed.

That's strange? And it's got 26 likes so far? Well, I'm shocked. But surprisingly flattered! JAGUAR  22:47, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Rudraveena (film)[edit]

Which began as a pure destubbing case ended up being a GAN today. One of my most committed works here, this GAN needs to be reviewed. Considering that Dr. Blofeld is truly stuck, i really wish that you review this leisurely. Regards, Pavanjandhyala (talk) 06:58, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Good work on it! Sure, I promise to reserve the review after I've reviewed a few more today. JAGUAR  15:14, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

4th Annual GA Cup - Round 1[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2016-2017 GA Cup
Symbol support vote.svg

Greetings, GA Cup competitors!

November 28, 2016 was supposed to mark the end of the first round. However, we needed 16 competitors to move on, and currently only 10 have completed articles. Thus, the judges have come together to let the participants decide what we shall do. Please complete this quick survey to let us know whether you would like a holiday break.

There will be two options for what we will do next in terms of Round 2 depending on the results of this poll.

  • If the survey indicates that the competitors want a break, we will have a 2nd round after the break ends with just the 10 competitors who have reviewed articles, starting in January (with a specific date TBA).
  • If the survey does not indicate that participants want a break, we will extend Round 1 until the end of December.

We apologize for sending out this newsletter late. Cheers from 3family6, Figureskatingfan, Jaguar, MrWooHoo, and Zwerg Nase!

To subscribe or unsubscribe to future GA Cup newsletters, please add or remove your name to our mailing list. If you are a participant, you will be on the mailing list no matter what as this is the easiest way to communicate between all participants.
