Surely, there's some chat forum or discussion group somewhere in the world you can find. There's hundreds of them. --Jayron32 12:56, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

if possible, please give me atleast 5 website addresses?(50.173.3.162 (talk) 17:17, 10 December 2014 (UTC)).

Try starting at http://www.google.com See where it leads you. --Jayron32 17:20, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Happy Lucia![edit]

Friendly request.[edit]

Hello there! I'm working on a project trying to bring most of the coding on Wikipedia up to the most current standards (HTML5), and I noticed that your signature is using <font>...</font> tags which were deprecated in HTML 4.0 Transitional, marked as invalid in 4.0 Strict, and are not part of HTML5 at all. I'd love to help you update your signature to use newer code, and if you're interested, I suggest replacing:
--[[User:Jayron32|<font style="color:#000099">Jayron</font>]]'''''[[User talk:Jayron32|<font style="color:#009900">32</font>]]'''''
with:
--[[User:Jayron32|<span style="color:#009">Jayron</span>]][[User talk:Jayron32|<b style="color:#090">''32''</b>]]
which will result in a 113 character long signature (18 characters shorter) with an appearance of: --Jayron32
compared to your existing 131 character long signature of: --Jayron32
— Either way. Happy editing! — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 00:02, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
I took care of it. Haven't changed my sig in something like 4-5 years. I made your coding changes. Hope it helps! --Jayron32 05:30, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 launch newsletter[edit]

Trophy.png

Round one of the 2015 WikiCup has begun! So far we've had around 80 signups, which close on February 5. If you have not already signed up and want to do so, then you can add your name here. There have been changes to to several of the points scores for various categories, and the addition of Peer Reviews for the first time. These will work in the same manner as Good Article Reviews, and all of the changes are summarised here.

Remember that only the top 64 scoring competitors will make it through to the second round, and one of the new changes this year is that all scores must be claimed within two weeks of an article's promotion or appearance, so don't forget to add them to your submissions pages! If you are concerned that your nomination will not receive the necessary reviews, and you hope to get it promoted before the end of the round, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. However, please remember to continue to offer reviews at GAN, FAC and all the other pages that require them to prevent any backlogs which could otherwise be caused by the Cup. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup and the judges are reachable on their talk pages. Good luck!

Ref Desk proposal[edit]

Hi Jayron, I don't know if you've been following the recent threads on the ref desk talk page, but based on some review of that material, I have a simple proposal that I'd like your feedback on before I shop it to the whole group. It's very simple: For a trial period (1 month?), we agree to not remove or hat any questions for reasons of seeking medical/legal advice (and perhaps extend to include requests for opinion). Rather than a free-for-all, we first respond with boilerplate or a template, something along the lines of this:

At that point, we can remove any responses that diagnose, proscribe, treat any illness or legal situation, but allow links to RS. Perhaps even demand that any responses include references, or risk removal. Would that seem ok to you? The thing is, we really don't get that many medical legal questions, and I like how this puts us in the position to police ourselves as respondents, rather than posters. As I see it, this proposal is consistent with our guidelines, and it might forestall some debates, because hopefully the use of a template will warn all our regulars (and irregulars) to be on their best behavior. On the upside, we can then provide useful information, such as links to other people's opinion pieces, links to WP pages that are about medical topics, peer-reviewed literature, etc. So, any thoughts? Would you support such an experiment? Thanks, SemanticMantis (talk) 15:03, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

I would prefer if we simply left the question intact, added the boilerplate response, and removed ALL subsequent responses, regardless of their nature. The line between information and advice is blurry, and it's a slippery slope from "providing information about a medical condition" which can look a lot like "confirming that a person has the medical condition they think they have". It would be best to leave the question intact, add the boilerplate, and remove any further responses. That's an easier bright-line to enforce rather than trying to police the fuzzy boundary between advice and information. It will not remove all debate, you should be aware. Some people will still see that any question at all that asks for any information about biology in any vague way is "medical advice" and you'll see others that still think we should go ahead and prescribe courses of treatment for any medical condition someone says they have. But I think this idea could have teeth, if we're consistent and set an enforceable bright-line. --Jayron32 15:08, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Of course I don't think it would end all debate. But IMO allowing responses after the boilerplate makes placing the boilerplate less contentious. Because in my plan, the whole question isn't shut down, it makes it less problematic if some users think the boilerplate was placed erroneously. But this is food for thought. I've posted similar descriptions to other users as well, I might make a new post on the talk page once I've heard back from them too. SemanticMantis (talk) 16:32, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 March newsletter[edit]

One of several of Godot13's quality submissions during round 1

That's it, the first round is done, sign-ups are closed and we're into round 2. 64 competitors made it into this round, and are now broken into eight groups of eight. The top two of each group will go through to round 3, and then the top scoring 16 "wildcards" across all groups. Round 1 saw some interesting work on some very important articles, with the round leader Australia Freikorp (submissions) owing most of his 622 points scored to a Featured Article on the 2001 film Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within which qualified for a times-two multiplier. This is a higher score than in previous years, as Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) had 500 points in 2014 at the end of round 1, and our very own judge, Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) led round 1 with 601 points in 2013.

In addition to Freikorp's work, some other important articles and pictures were improved during round one, here's a snapshot of a few of them:

You may also wish to know that The Core Contest is running through the month of March. Head there for further details - they even have actual prizes!
