Wiki Loves Pride 2016[edit]

Hi, Emily! You are invited to participate in the third annual Wiki Loves Pride campaign, which runs through the month of June. The purpose of the campaign is to create and improve content related to LGBT culture and history. How can you help?

  1. Create or improve LGBT-related Wikipedia pages and showcase the results of your work here
  2. Document local LGBT culture and history by taking pictures at pride events and uploading your images to Wikimedia Commons
  3. Contribute to an LGBT-related task force at another Wikimedia project (Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikivoyage, etc.)

Looking for topics? The Tasks page, which you are welcome to update, offers some ideas and wanted articles.

This campaign is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group, an officially recognized affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation. The group's mission is to develop LGBT-related content across all Wikimedia projects, in all languages. Visit the affiliate's page at Meta-Wiki for more information, or follow Wikimedia LGBT+ on Facebook. Remember, Wiki Loves Pride is about creating and improving LGBT-related content at Wikimedia projects, and content should have a neutral point of view. One does not need to identify as LGBT or any other gender or sexual minority to participate. This campaign is about adding accurate, reliable information to Wikipedia, plain and simple, and all are welcome! If you have any questions, please leave a message on the campaign's talk page.

Thanks, and happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 14:41, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

2016 GA Cup-Finals[edit]

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

Hello, GA Cup competitors!

Tuesday saw the end of Round 3. Sainsf, for the third time, won with a sizable 487 points and a shocking 29 articles reviewed. In second, MPJ-DK had 168 points and 7 reviewed articles. In second place, MPJ-DK earned 168 points with just 7 articles, and in third place, Carbrera received 137 points with just 9 articles. Our two wildcard slots went to J Milburn with 122 points and Sturmvogel 66 with 101 points.

In Round 3, 65 reviews were completed! At the beginning of the GA Cup, there were 595 outstanding nominations in the GAN queue; by the end of Round 3, there were 394. Another demonstrable way in which this competition has made a difference is in the length of time articles languish in the queue. At the beginning of the GA Cup, the longest wait was over 9 months [1]; at the end of Round 3, the longest wait had decreased significantly, to a little over 5 months [2]—nothing before 2016. 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 the Finals for the GA Cup so that are successes continue.

To qualify for the Finals, contestants had to earn the highest scores in each of the three pools in Round 3; plus, as well as the top 2 of all remaining users in all of the pools. For the Finals, users were placed in one pool of the remaining five users. To win the GA Cup, you must have the most points. The Finals started on June 1 at 0:00:01 UTC' and end on June 30 at 23:59:59 UTC. Information about the Finals and the pools can be found here. A clarification: in order for the points to count, you must mark your reviews as completed; it's not up to the judges to ensure that all reviews are completed by the end of a round.

We wish all the contestants the best of luck!

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

Text change[edit]

Hey. A little confused about your change of the text to "Mifepristone alone will end approximately 50% of pregnancies; there is no evidence showing an increased rate of continued pregnancy after mifepristone with high-dose progesterone treatment."

The ref says as its conclusion "In the rare case that a woman changes her mind after starting medical abortion, evidence is insufficient to determine whether treatment with progesterone after mifepristone results in a higher proportion of continuing pregnancies compared to expectant management."[3]

This was a better summary IMO "It is unclear if anything can be done to stop an abortion due to mifepristone if a women changes her mind after taking the medication." Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 05:47, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Since there are only 6 known cases of attempted high-dose progesterone treatment post-mifepristone, there is definitely no evidence showing anything, and there's some very *very* dangerous information out there from anti-abortion groups promoting high-dose progesterone that we should not be promulgating. (also an expert in the field reviewed the changes and is very familiar with the study and agreed that the former wording is less ambiguous.) Keilana (talk) 01:12, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
Which wording do you mean by "former wording"? Do you mean the wording you changed it to or the prior wording? Best Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 11:58, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
Oof, didn't realize that was ambiguous. The expert I talked to said that the wording I changed it to is less ambiguous, and that the prior wording was less accurate. Keilana (talk) 17:33, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
With respect to the percentage of pregnancies ended with mifepristone alone the ref says "The proportion of pregnancies continuing 1-2 weeks after mifepristone alone varied from 8% (95% CI 3-22%) to 46% (95% CI 37-56%)." I disagree that this is about 50%. We could say 54% to 92%. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 20:56, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
@Doc James: So Management of Unintended and Abnormal Pregnancy cites the percentage of pregnancies ending after mife alone as 60-80% under 49 days gestational age. (This is from the initial studies where medication abortion was conducted without any miso - Kovacs et al 1984 and Shoupe et al. 1986). Grossman et al included studies from all gestational ages where medication was used, so they're not quite comparable but I'm happy with saying 54%-92% of pregnancies end with mife alone at any gestational age and 60-80% end with mife alone under 49 days. Does that sound good to you? If you want copies of any of these sources let me know, by the way. Keilana (talk) 13:38, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
Have added it here Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 13:51, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
@Doc James: Sorry to be a nag, but I'm still not happy with saying "it is unclear if anything can be done", there's just no evidence that mifepristone's effects can be reversed, and I'd rather say that. Are you okay with that? Keilana (talk) 14:01, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

I am not clear what you are proposing. Do you mean this [4]? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 14:15, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

@Doc James: Sorry for the confusion, I definitely made that comment pre-morning coffee. :) This is what I've proposed. Does it look ok? Keilana (talk) 01:31, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

June 2016 Guild of Copy Editors Newsletter[edit]

Guild of Copy Editors June 2016 News
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello everyone, welcome to the June 2016 GOCE newsletter. It's been a few months since we sent one out; we hope y'all haven't forgotten about the Guild! Your coordinators have been busy behind the scenes as usual, though real life has a habit of reducing our personal wiki-time. The May backlog reduction drive, the usual coordinating tasks and preparations for the June election are keeping us on our toes!

May drive: Thanks to everyone who participated in last month's record-setting backlog reduction drive. Of the 29 people who signed up, 16 copyedited at least one article, 197 copyedits were recorded on the drive page, and the copyedit backlog fell below 1,500 for the first time! Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

June Blitz: this one-week copy-editing blitz will occur from 12 June through 18 June; the themes will be video games and Asian geography.

Coordinator elections: It's election time again; how quickly they seem to roll around! Nominations for the next tranche of Guild coordinators, who will serve a six-month term that begins at 00:01 UTC on 1 July and ends at 23:59 UTC on 31 December, opens at 00:01 UTC on 1 June and closes at 23:59 UTC on 15 June. Voting takes place between 00:01 UTC on 16 June and 23:59 UTC on 30 June. If you'd like to assist behind the scenes, please consider stepping forward; self-nominations are welcomed and encouraged. All Wikipedia editors in good standing are eligible; remember it's your Guild, and it doesn't run itself!

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Miniapolis and Baffle gab1978.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Madge Macklin, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page National Research Council (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Women scientists template?[edit]

Hi Emily. Would you be able to point me to a template or "ideal article" that I can model an article on, please? --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 02:36, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

@Anthonyhcole: Sure! It's going to be a bit different for an article where there's enough information to write an FA (e.g. Barbara McClintock) and an article where there isn't. A couple of articles that show the outline I use for modern scientists (18th century or later, usually) are Ynes Mexia, Tilly Edinger, and Leonora Bilger. If we're talking ancient women, Agnodice is a decent example. Does that help? Best, Keilana (talk) 04:11, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
Yep, that's exactly what I needed. Thanks. (It's for Maree Smith.) --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 07:57, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

Could use some help[edit]

Greetings, Keilana. I don't think we have interacted before, but I've admired your work from afar. Since women in science is your area of expertise, I was hoping to get some help on Keity Souza Santos. I created the page based on a post on the Women in Red project page, but finding sources was a bit of a struggle, and now another user has been questioning the article's notability. I was wondering if you could take a look, and you felt it was notable, whether you could give me some pointers with respect to sources. Regards, Vanamonde93 (talk) 11:02, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

@Vanamonde93: I think she's notable but just barely, from the Sao Paulo award. I don't speak Portuguese so I've been unable to find anything that you haven't already. Keilana (talk) 22:04, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

2016 GA Cup-Wrap Up[edit]

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

Hello to our truly awesome GA Cup competitors!

Thursday, June 30 saw the end of the 2016 GA Cup. It was a huge success. In the final, our five competitors reviewed an astonishing 207 articles, the most in any GA Cup final thus far. We continue to reach our goals and make a substantial impact in how quickly articles are reviewed for GA status. On March 1, the start of this competition, the article longest in the queue had languished there since June 26, 2015 [6]; in the July 1, 2016 list, the average wait length is just four months [7]. 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 their enthusiasm, and for helping to make the GA Cup a continued success. Remember that most articles can't even be considered for FA status unless it's been passed to GA first, so our efforts have created hundreds of potentials FAs. That is, as they say, a big deal.

The final this time represented a real horse race between our 1st and 2nd place winners. First-time competitor (who had won all previous rounds) Sainsf earned an impressive 1456 points with 91 articles reviewed during the final. Close behind, in second place was Carbrera, also a first-time competitor, reviewed the most articles (94). Their enthusiasm was a treat to witness. Congrats to you both!

The competition went relatively smoothly, with very little drama this time. We had to clarify one rule: in order for the points to count, you must mark your reviews as completed; it's not up to the judges to ensure that all reviews are completed by the end of a round. We were strict about adhering to this clarification, especially at the end of the final. We intend on stressing it in the stated rules for our next competition, which will be announced soon, so watch out for it. We also intend on applying for a grant through Wikimedia to include gift certificates for our winners, to further incentivize the GA Cup.

MrWooHoo should receive special recognition for acting as our main judge, and for stepping in for the rest of the judges when real-life busyness took over. He reviewed the majority of the submissions during our final round. Thanks for your hard work, and for the hard work of all our judges. We look forward to the next competition.

Again, thanks to all our competitors, and congrats to our winners.

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

Kevin[edit]

Sorry to trouble you, but could you look at WP:AN#Kevin Gorman at your earliest convenience. I don't know Kevin very well, but I understand you do - all I would ask for is a conformation that what I have read is correct, nothing more. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 20:22, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

@Ritchie333: We're working on it. If this turns out to be true, can you direct people to his talk page? I'd rather have people remembering him there, where his family can read about the impact he had on the site. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 20:24, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

Women in Math on Wikipedia[edit]

Hi Keilana. Who can we call on for advice and to follow new pages on women in math on Wikipedia? I know you will be very busy with the start of Med School. I'm not sure who else to call on. I have added lists of women in math whose pages are stubs or who do not have pages on the Year of Science page for computer science, technology and math and on the WP Women in Red page on mathematics. Added my name to WP Women scientists. Still working on my article on Writing women in mathematics into Wikipedia. Might follow up with a detailed email but see that you prefer first posts here.

Hello everyone, and welcome to the September 2016 GOCE newsletter.

>>> Sign up for the September Drive, already in progress! <<<

July Drive: The July drive was a roaring success. We set out to remove April, May, and June 2015 from our backlog (our 149 oldest articles), and by 23 July, we were done with those months. We added July 2015 (66 articles) and copy-edited 37 of those. We also handled all of the remaining Requests from June 2016. Well done! Overall, we recorded copy edits to 240 articles by 20 editors, reducing our total backlog to 13 months and 1,656 articles, the second-lowest month-end total ever.

August Blitz: this one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 21 through 27 August; the theme was sports-related articles in honor of the 2016 Summer Olympics. Of the eight editors who signed up, five editors removed 11 articles from the backlog. A quiet blitz – everyone must be on vacation. Barnstars and rollover totals are located here. Thanks to all editors who took part.

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators: Jonesey95, Corinne and Tdlsk.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Keilana. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Request for opinion on some controversial Nigerian female articles[edit]

Hello Keilana,

I came here because I need opinion from experienced female Wikipedians on an article I am about moving to mainspace (I'm still working on the inline references though). The reason I'm not using article for creation is that this is not a case of COI, rather I want to weigh perception from any experienced female Wikipedian on the article, and you're the only Wikipedian I can confirm is female. Maheeda and Cossy Orjiakor are two controversial Nigerian celebrities, and they are very open about what makes them unique. I created articles for them on my sandbox and am still working on it. Usually I don't use sandbox, but I just feel somehow odd about these two. Could you read the article and let me know if it sounds disrespectful? Please I will appreciate if you can do a brief research on them to acquaint yourself with their lifestyle before a reply. Maheeda Cossy Thanks. Darreg (talk) 19:05, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

GA Cup Announcement[edit]

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 October 31, 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.

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.
