Syrian Civil War infobox[edit]

Hi! Why did you copy the infobox into the article while there's a template to be included? --Emesik (talk) 00:00, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

What do you mean?

It seems that you have pasted entire Template:Syrian Civil War infobox into the article. Didn't you? --Emesik (talk) 00:59, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Yes. I did this because previously, the page was done incorrectly. All the things shown in the info box could be seen and messed up the beginning of the page. You can see from the edit before mine. Why is it wrong?

Someone else broke the infobox. It should be fixed in the template, not in the article. --Emesik (talk) 14:33, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, what should I do ?

Never mind, I managed to fix it already :) --Emesik (talk) 23:31, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

USWNT[edit]

Yes. I updated "RET" to "RETIRED", since RET did not have note explaining its meaning. Thanks for asking. Harvardton (talk) 10:11, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

It's an abbreviation.

Your question[edit]

I made my account here when I was a very young teenager (like, 13) and most of the stuff I had up on there was pretty cringeworthy to 2015 me. Ahawowow (talk) 06:27, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

Re:Cocoliztli[edit]

I change (or will) the article Epidemia de cocoliztli de 1576 because its content was almost the same (more undeveloped and with not totally reliable sources) as Cocoliztli. Now the article will focus on the outbreak and not on the disease. Sorry for my english. Edslov (talk) 23:47, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

GA review[edit]

Hello, and thank you for beginning your GA review of David Davis (footballer). I think I've answered your points so far. I'm just here to let you know that I'll be off-wiki for 10 days from next Monday (11th), so if you add to the review after that date, I won't be able to respond until I get back. cheers, Struway2 (talk) 10:30, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

New England[edit]

Please check your script edits, for example at New England (diff). Points I noticed are:

  • The first of the following was changed to the second which broke the template:
    {{convert|71991.8|sqmi|sqkm|abbr=on}}
    {{convert|71991.8|sq mi|km²|abbr=on}}
    WP:MOSNUM says that km² should not be used, instead use km<sup>2</sup>. However, both are wrong when the text is a parameter to a template, as is inserting a space in "sqmi".
  • Another change is seen at New England#Employment. The table heading used to have "December 2014[102]" but now has "[102] Net change" (the ref was moved from once column to another).
  • The script must be fixed to avoid hard-to-see stuff like changing the first of the following to the second:
    url=https://books.google.com/books?id=meS-dCN7wU4C&printsec=frontcover&dq=new+england's+crises+and+cultural+memory&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjOoJW8v_XLAhVBOT4KHZorA-sQ6AEIHzAA#v=onepage&q=new%20england's%20crises%20and%20cultural%20memory&f=false
    url=https://books.google.com/books?id=meS-dCN7wU4C&printsec=frontcover&dq=new+england's+crises+and+cultural+memory&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjOoJW8v_XLAhVBOT4&nbsp;kHzorA-sQ6AEIHzAA#v=onepage&q=new%20england's%20crises%20and%20cultural%20memory&f=false
    It changed "4KHZ" to "4&nbsp;kHz". An article using the doubly wrong "4KHZ" should probably be carefully examined rather than changed automatically.

Johnuniq (talk) 01:08, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

Copied to here from my talk. Johnuniq (talk) 02:24, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
I looked over the edits in the script, many were fine. Sorry for any inconvenience. Don't see the problem in this.. [last point above] JerrySa1 (talk) 01:35, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
It is hard to see, but in the last point of my post above there are two long lines starting "url=". The first line contains "4KHZ" but the second does not. Searching this talk page for "4KHZ" would be an easy way to see the text. The second line contains "4&nbsp;kHz". That sort of automated change, if it is desirable, should not occur in a URL. I'm not complaining and I'm sorry that my message reads rather stiffly. I noticed there was a problem and thought you should be aware that some of the automated changes are breaking things. Similar issues may have occurred in other articles. Johnuniq (talk) 02:24, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

Invite to the African Destubathon[edit]

Hi. You may be interested in participating in the African Destubathon which starts on October 15. Africa currently has over 37,000 stubs and badly needs a quality improvement editathon/contest to flesh out basic stubs. There are proposed substantial prizes to give to editors who do the most articles, and planned smaller prizes for doing to most destubs for each of the 53 African countries, so should be enjoyable! So it would be a good chance to win something for improving stubs on African sportspeople, including footballers, athletes, Olympians and Paralympians etc, particularly female ones, but also male. Even if contests aren't your thing we would be grateful if you could consider destubbing a few African articles during the drive to help the cause and help reduce the massive 37,000 + stub count, of which many are rated high importance (think Regions of countries etc). If you're interested in competing or just loosely contributing a few expanded articles on African Paralympians, Olympians and committees etc, please add your name to the Contestants/participants section. Diversity of work from a lot of people will make this that bit more special. Thanks. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:13, 6 October 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!

4th GA Cup - Round 2[edit]

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

Greetings, GA Cup competitors!

December 29th marked the end of the first round, after it was extended from its previously scheduled conclusion at the end of November. Because of the smaller pool of contestants this year, it was decided to keep sign-ups open throughout the month of December.

This extension proved to be very helpful as we saw that more users signed up and completed many reviews. Krishna Chaitanya Velaga earned an impressive 402 points, followed by Cartoon network freak with a close 338 points. Shearonink who signed up after our extension was in third with 170 points.

We had a rule clarification in Round 1 which was that many articles were being passed with blatant copyright violations and plagarism occurring in the articles. Thus, the judges have concluded that if an article is passed even if it has a copyright violation/plagarism, we will not provide points for that article as it wouldn't be considered a "complete review" under the scoring rules.

In the end, 94 articles were reviewed by 14 users who will all advance to Round 2. The judges had planned on having 16 contestants advance but since only 14 did, we are changing the pools in this round. We will be having 2 pools of 3 and 2 pools of 4 in Round 2, with the top 2 in each pool advancing to Round 3 as well as the top participant ("9th place") of all remaining competitors. Round 2 will begin on January 1 at 00:00:00 UTC and will end on January 29 at 23:59:59 UTC. Information about Round 2 and the pools can be found here.

Cheers from 3family6, Figureskatingfan, Jaguar, MrWooHoo, and Zwerg Nase!

I think we have it, but I am not sure. (I am assuming that you found it on New Page Patrol, and that it doesn't neatly fit any of the CSD categories, and you tried to AFD it, and something went wrong. Is that correct?) Robert McClenon (talk) 00:06, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
Exactly that, but I could swear it was deleted by TWO admins for being "a blatant hoax." But I saw people still editing it, which is where I saw that something went wrong. JerrySa1 (talk) 00:13, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

I have no idea how it's a "blatant hoax" when it's been in published books. I'm from the area, and it might not be "real," but it's a "real story.' — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ekmyers (talkcontribs) 03:20, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

4th GA Cup - Round 3[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2016 GA Cup - Round 3
Symbol support vote.svg

Hello, GA Cup competitors!

Sunday saw the end of Round 2. Shearonink took out Round 2 with an amazing score of 499. In second place, Krishna Chaitanya Velaga earned an astounding 236 points, and in third place, Cartoon network freak received 136 points. Originally, we had plans for one wild card for 9th place, however it appears that both Chris troutman and J Milburn were tied for 9th place. Therefore, we have decided to have both advance to Round 3.

In Round 2, 91 reviews were completed! At the beginning of this GA Cup, the longest wait was over 7 months; at the end of Round 2, the longest wait had decreased to a little over 6 months. It's clear that we continue to make a difference at GAN and throughout Wikipedia, something we should all be proud of. Thanks to all our competitors for helping to make the GA Cup a continued success, and for your part in helping other editors improve articles. We hope to see all remaining users fighting it out in Round 3 so we can keep decreasing the backlog.

To qualify for the third round, contestants had to earn the two highest scores in each of the four pools in Round 2; plus, one wildcard. For Round 3, users were placed in 3 random pools of 3. To qualify for the Final of the 3rd Annual GA Cup, the top user in each pool will progress, and there will also be one wildcard. This means that the participant who comes in 4th place (all pools combined) will also move on. Round 3 has already started and will end on February 26 at 23:59:59 UTC. Information about Round 3 and the pools can be found here.

Also, we'd like to announce the departure of judge Zwerg Nase. We thank him for all his hardwork and hope to see him back in the future.

Good luck and have fun!

Cheers from Figureskatingfan, 3family6, Jaguar, and MrWooHoo.

4th GA Cup - The Final[edit]

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

Hello, GA Cup competitors!

Sunday, February 26 saw the end of Round 3. Shearonink finished in first with 616 points, which is more than the point totals for all the other competitors combined! In second place, Krishna Chaitanya Velaga earned an impressive 152 points, followed by Sturmvogel_66 in third with 111 points. Chris troutman and Kees08 each received a wild-card and were able to advance to the Final Round. There was a major error on the part of the judges, and initially, 8 users were advanced instead of 5. This has been corrected, and we sincerely apologize for this confusion.

In Round 3, 71 reviews were completed! At the beginning of this GA Cup, the longest wait was over 7 months; at the end of Round 3, the longest wait is still holding steady at a little over 6 months, the same as for the previous round. By the end of all three Rounds, the total number of nominations increased slightly - this suggests that users are more willing to nominate, knowing that their articles will be reviewed. We hope to see all remaining users fighting it out in the Final so we can keep tackling the backlog.

In the Final Round, the user with the highest score will be the winner. The Final has already started and will end on March 31st at 23:59:59 UTC. Information about Finals and the pools can be found here.

Good luck and have fun!

Cheers from Figureskatingfan, 3family6, Jaguar, and MrWooHoo.

4th GA Cup - Wrap Up[edit]

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

Hello, GA Cup competitors!

Saturday, April 1 concluded the 2016-2017 GA Cup. 64 reviews were completed by our finalists. Although the backlog increased by 42 over the reviewing period instead of declining, the increase suggests that the contest is encouraging editors to nominate articles for review.

Congratulations to Shearonink, who is the winner of the Cup, finishing with 672 points! Once again, just as in last round, this is more than the point totals for all the other competitors combined! It was a close race for second place between Krishna Chaitanya Velaga, who achieved 164 points, and Sturmvogel_66, who earned 150. Though Sturmvogel_66 reviewed one more article than Krishna Chaitanya Velaga, Krishna Chaitanya Velaga managed to earn 14 points more due to reviewing older articles. Our two wildcard competitors, Kees08 and Chris troutman, came in fourth and fifth, respectively.

There were some bumps in the competition this time: The sign-up deadline and the first round were both extended due to fewer competitors signing up then was planned for. And there were delays in tallying points and getting out the newsletter. The judges apologize for this latter difficulty. Lastly, mid-way through the competition we bid farewell to Zwerg Nase, who stepped down from their position as judge due to other commitments. Information about the Final can be found here.

Thank you to all of our competitors, and congrats to our winners!

Cheers from Figureskatingfan, 3family6, Jaguar, and MrWooHoo.

Olivetti Lettera 35 moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Olivetti Lettera 35, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

SpongeBob SquarePants[edit]

Hello:

The copy edit you requested from the Guild of Copy Editors of the article SpongeBob SquarePants has been completed.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

There are several issues with the citations that will need to be fixed before FA reviewers will pass the article. Each citation should include either a website name or a publisher. A number of the article's citations are missing one or other of these fields. There are also many instances when up to five citations are provided for one statement. These extra citations should be trimmed. One section is also tagged for updating and this needs to be done (if there's anything to add) and the tag removed.

Best of luck moving forward.
