RUOK? Comment[edit]

Is everything alright? Just noted your recent outburst on the Sri Lankan talkpage. Is there anything I can assist with? Dan arndt (talk) 22:56, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

@Dan arndt: Is it a general habit to avoid replying to messages there and instead post condescending messages on private talk pages? What was an outburst about it? I simply responded to the comments made there, and the community's arrogant, selfish outlook and your avoidance of my question on a user that was openly pushing a nationalist agenda. Did you post a message of this type on his talk page when Blackknight pretty much insulted everyone else except you?
You can assist me by replying to messages there where everyone can see them, not here. - ක - (talk) 04:47, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
I wasn’t being condescending but am genuinely concerned that you obviously felt aggrieved. I believed that I had put forward my position in respect to enthnicity of politicians, so my apologies for not responding to your query. I have since rectified that with a further comment on the Sri Lankan talk page. Dan arndt (talk) 10:12, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
Hello, I'm sorry if you took my reply in a negative way, but it wasn't meant as an insult. I have been on wikipedia for nearly 10 years and if its one thing I have learnt its that you have to pick the right battles. Some things, and users, are worth the time and effort and many are not. You should have a thicker skin, I have seen many leave wikipedia over the years. I had been vaguely following your discussion on the topic of Ethnicity of Politicians, and even though I agree with the jist of what you are saying, I chose not to participate hoping it would work itself out. Clearly that hasn't. If you hit a brick wall there are other places to take this like the Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard. You shouldn't let this deter you from making productive edits here. Its sad that you had left as you have contributed much to Sri Lankan articles. I hope you reconsider.--Blackknight12 (talk) 11:34, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Hey there. Our community came this far because of hard work of genuine contributors like yourself, and people like you is what keeps this community healthy. I had bumpy times in the past as well, and had given up multiple times. I sincerely hope you would reconsider to come back after a proper break from Wikipedia. As I've explained to you earlier, it is important that we stick together. Warm regards, Rehman 13:46, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Kokuvil Hindu College crest.png[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Kokuvil Hindu College crest.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:25, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

Hello Jesuschristonacamel, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).
