Mentorship request?[edit]

Would like to request mentorship. Is this the right place? Quinton Feldberg (talk) 02:24, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

Sure, if you want me to mentor you. Everymorning (talk) 02:26, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
Wow! That was quick! Quinton Feldberg (talk) 02:35, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
So, am I adopted? Quinton Feldberg (talk) 04:27, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes. Everymorning (talk) 13:21, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
Okay... Where to start? Quinton Feldberg (talk) 05:06, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────It's up to you; just ask me about something you want me to help you with and I'll try to do so. Everymorning (talk) 13:12, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

How about WP:NPP? Quinton Feldberg (talk) 00:50, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
Sure, what about it do you want help with? I will give you some general advice for new page patrolling: you should wait at least 5 min. after a page is created to tag it for speedy deletion, in case the creator needs to fix the problem that you want to speedy the page for. Also, this section is getting kinda long so I'd like it if you ask me about this on a new section on this page. Everymorning (talk) 02:27, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

  • The new page backlog is currently at 16,991 pages. We have worked hard to decrease from over 22,000, but more hard work is needed! Please consider reviewing even just a few pages a a day.

Technology update:

  • Rentier has created a NPP browser in WMF Labs that allows you to search new unreviewed pages using keywords and categories.

General project update:

  • The Wikimedia Foundation Community Tech team is working with the community to implement the autoconfirmed article creation trial. The trial is currently set to start on 7 September 2017, pending final approval of the technical features.
  • Please remember to focus on the quality of review: correct tagging of articles and not tagbombing are important. Searching for potential copyright violations is also important, and it can be aided by Earwig's Copyvio Detector, which can be added to your toolbar for ease of use with this user script.
  • To keep up with the latest conversation on New Pages Patrol or to ask questions, you can go to Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Reviewers and add it to your watchlist.

Speedy deletion nomination of James Allsup[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on James Allsup, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion discussion, such as at Articles for Deletion. When a page has substantially identical content to that of a page deleted after a discusion, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

WP:NPP[edit]

Where would be a good place to start? Quinton Feldberg (talk) 00:39, 28 August 2017 (UTC)

After you read through the page you linked to in the header of this section, you can start patrolling new pages at Special:NewPagesFeed. Everymorning (talk) 02:30, 28 August 2017 (UTC)
What are the requirements for the right? Quinton Feldberg (talk) 23:37, 2 September 2017 (UTC)
According to WP:NPPR, they are as follows: "Editors will normally need to have been registered users of the English Wikipedia for at least 90 days, and have made at least 500 not-deleted edits to mainspace. They will also need to be able to demonstrate from their editing history that they have sufficient experience, and have the ability to communicate in an appropriate manner with new users." Everymorning (talk) 00:01, 3 September 2017 (UTC)
What type of experience are they looking for? What am I able to do, without the right, to demonstrate/gain experience? Quinton Feldberg (talk) 00:04, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I would recommend making more mainspace edits, reverting vandalism, and other constructive contributions to demonstrate that you understand how WP processes and systems work. Everymorning (talk) 00:08, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

I'm at about 24K (14K mainspace) edits right now. Should I wait until ~20K mainspace? Quinton Feldberg (talk) 00:24, 3 September 2017 (UTC)
You've been an editor here for about a year, and you've made way more than the required edits to mainspace. If you think you have enough experience and skill in dealing with new editors, then I would say you should be fine to apply for the userright at WP:PERM. Everymorning (talk) 00:42, 3 September 2017 (UTC)
"Way more than the required edits" but still getting rejected. Really??? Quinton Feldberg (talk) 05:12, 3 September 2017 (UTC)
Just because I hadn't read ONE POLICY, I now have to wait another 1-3 MONTHS?
VERY UNFAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Quinton Feldberg (talk) 06:50, 3 September 2017 (UTC)
Man, calm down. You overreacting to things like this is the reason your request was denied. Everymorning (talk) 13:00, 3 September 2017 (UTC)
Still unfair!! Quinton Feldberg (talk) 02:48, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────How long do you think I should wait before re-requesting? Quinton Feldberg (talk) 03:53, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

I'd say at least a few weeks, TBH, before it can become clear that temperament issues like those that derailed your last request have been resolved. Everymorning (talk) 12:13, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
Sounds fair. Quinton Feldberg (talk) 17:29, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Bartley-Fox Law[edit]

I got inspired tonight and added some content and a bunch of refs to the article. Hope it looks good! Can you add an external link to the full text of the law? Is such a thing available? Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 05:56, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

DYK for Bartley-Fox Law[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 6 September 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Bartley-Fox Law, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the Bartley-Fox Law mandated a one-year prison sentence for anyone convicted of illegally carrying a firearm in Massachusetts? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Bartley-Fox Law. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Bartley-Fox Law), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

New Page Reviewer Newsletter[edit]

Hello Everymorning, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 14304 pages. We have worked hard to decrease from over 22,000, but more hard work is needed! Please consider reviewing even just a few pages a day.
  • Currently there are 532 pages in the backlog that were created by non-autoconfirmed users before WP:ACTRIAL. The NPP project is undertaking a drive to clear these pages from the backlog before they hit the 90 day Google index point. Please consider reviewing a few today!

Technology update:

  • The Wikimedia Foundation is currently working on creating a new filter for page curation that will allow new page patrollers to filter by extended confirmed status. For more information see: T175225

General project update:

  • On 14 September 2017 the English Wikipedia began the autoconfirmed article creation trial. For a six month period, creation of articles in the mainspace of the English Wikipedia will be restricted to users with autoconfirmed status. New users who attempt article creation will now be redirected to a newly designed landing page.
  • Before clicking on a reference or external link while reviewing a page, please be careful that the site looks trustworthy. If you have a question about the safety of clicking on a link, it is better not to click on it.
  • To keep up with the latest conversation on New Pages Patrol or to ask questions, you can go to Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Reviewers and add it to your watchlist.
