WikiCup 2016: Game On![edit]

We are about to enter the second week of the 2016 WikiCup. The most recent player to sign up brings the current total to 101 contestants. Signups close on 5 February. If you’re interested, you can join this year's WikiCup here.

We are aware that in some areas the scoring bot’s numbers are a little bit off (i.e., overly generous) and are working to have that corrected as soon as possible.--MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:04, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Rulers.org[edit]

Its been created again years after deletion. Can you lock the creation? [1]Lihaas (talk) 02:05, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

@Lihaas: As stated in one of my replies below, my computer is currently out of commission, and I am reduced to editing from my tablet or phone. Accordingly, I would prefer to not do so right now, but if no one else has gotten to it by the time I get my computer back I'll take a look (also assuming no one else has gotten to it before I saw this).

Reappointment as a clerk[edit]

Hi, Ks0stm. Are you still interested in being reappointed as a clerk? Thanks, Kevin (aka L235 · t · c) 16:54, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

@L235: Yes, but my only good editing computer is currently out for repair, so could anything to do with that be put on hold until later this week when I (hopefully) get my computer back from the repair center? Unless there are problems repairing it, it should get back to me by Thursday, if not Wednesday. If y'all want to get the ball rolling sooner than that I can edit from my tablet which, while not ideal, could be used in a pinch, and I can be contacted by email or the clerks' mailing list, now that I've added that email address to my phone. Thanks, Ks0stm (TCGE) 17:32, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 March newsletter[edit]

One of Adam Cuerden’s several quality restorations during round 1

That's it, the first round is done, sign-ups are closed and we're into round 2. Forty-seven competitors move into this round (a bit shy of the expected 64), and we are roughly broken into eight groups of six. The top two of each group will go through to round 3, and then the top scoring 16 "wildcards" across all groups.

Twenty-two Good Articles were submitted, including three by Connecticut Cyclonebiskit (submissions), and two each by Denmark MPJ-DK (submissions), Zanzibar Hurricanehink (submissions), Florida 12george1 (submissions), and New South Wales Cas Liber (submissions). Twenty-one Featured Pictures were claimed, including 17 by There's always time for skeletons Adam Cuerden (submissions) (the Round 1 high scorer). Thirty-one contestants saw their DYKs appear on the main page, with a commanding lead (28) by Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions). Twenty-nine participants conducted GA reviews with Lancashire J Milburn (submissions) completing nine.

WikiCup 2016 March newsletter (update)[edit]

Along with getting the year wrong in the newsletter that went out earlier this week, we did not mention (as the bot did not report) that New South Wales Cas Liber (submissions) claimed the first Featured Article Persoonia terminalis of the 2016 Wikicup.

Request on protected article[edit]

Hi Ks0stm, nearly 4 years ago you decided to protect Marilyn Monroe. Since any kind of indefinite protection should not be the rule in wp the semi protection may be removed or at least be downgraded for a period of time to pending changes protection. Would you try the risk. ;) 84.141.6.185 (talk) 11:03, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Marilyn Monroe has one of the longest protection logs I've seen [2]. That said, my gut would be to keep it semi-protected and have IP users who want to make edits use {{edit semi-protected}} to request edits. However, there is an argument to be made for trying out pending changes, which does not appear to have been tried for any length of time, but I doubt it will go well. My recommendation would be that if you have specific edits you want made try using the {{edit semi-protected}} template to request them or create an account and either request the confirmed user right or get autoconfirmed. If this is more about the spirit of the thing, though, I would be willing to consider putting it under pending changes for a month to see how it goes, but I'm fairly confident that if it didn't go well then the indefinite semi-protection would return to stay.
