Hello. I saw you made a substantial addition to this article regarding the Dual system of control. Could you please provide a reference for where you found this information? Cheers --LukeSurl t c 21:59, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

My edits are very valid. Being a person who has in depth knowledge of what took place in those islands because I am from there I know that coolie should not be classed as slavery whatsoever. Coolies should be classed as Indentured Labourers. Coolieism took place after Slavery was abolished and that is a fact. Also the word coolie means wages or hireling. I have sources below. http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/136194/coolie http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/records/research-guides/indian-indentured-labour.htm http://www.npr.org/blogs/codeswitch/2013/11/25/247166284/a-history-of-indentured-labor-gives-coolie-its-stinghttp:

Coolies were given wages, land, and houses for their labor. Generally speaking people today are not even given this. I know this for a fact because I am from these island and the people there were indeed paid. This resulted in a lot of jealousy and anger from African slaves towards coolies and perhaps rightfully so. Indian coolies were paid about $45 dollars a day plus food and clothing.

http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/136194/coolie http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/records/research-guides/indian-indentured-labour.htm http://www.npr.org/blogs/codeswitch/2013/11/25/247166284/a-history-of-indentured-labor-gives-coolie-its-stinghttp: http://www.sahistory.org.za/politics-and-society/anti-indian-legislation-1800s-1959 First of all the Category must be changed from Slavery to Indentured Laborer. Second the etymology for coolie is hired laborer or wages. And kuli in turkish means hireling. Thank you and I will get back to you with more changes. I am from these islands and the original article so falsely misrepresents coolies. Many people of Indian and Chinese background took exception to this article because they knew that a lot of the subject matter in the original article was false. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Richey90211 (talkcontribs) 06:13, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

If you have a specific request for me please state it, otherwise I will not respond further. —KuyaBriBriTalk 15:04, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

Please change the category for the article from Slavery to Indentured Laborer. Please change quli in turkish from slave to hireling. In Cantonese, the term is 咕 喱 (Jyutping: Gu lei).

More about Joaquín Santiago[edit]

Hi, again. You may want to know that the probable-hoax status of Joaquín Santiago (that we discussed some days ago) has been raised by another editor in the BLP Noticeboard and has ultimately resulted in an AFD nomitation. One editor that identifies himself as the son of the article's subject has taken it personally, believing people are calling his father (and not the article) an hoax.

I the end, I believe the article's subject is someone that exists, but it's weird how the article is so full of fake references, that do not seem to back up what's said in the article. And, regardless of the truthfulness of these unreferenced claims, the subject's notability is also disputable. Just in case you're still interested. --damiens.rf 17:34, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

New Page Reviewer granted[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Kuyabribri. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group, allowing you to review new pages and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or in some cases, tag them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is a vital function for policing the quality of the encylopedia, if you have not already done so, you must read the new tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the various deletion criteria. If you need more help or wish to discuss the process, please join or start a thread at page reviewer talk.

  • URGENT: Please consider helping get the huge backlog (around 18,000 pages) down to a manageable number of pages as soon as possible.
  • Be nice to new users - they are often not aware of doing anything wrong.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted - be formal and polite in your approach to them too, even if they are not.
  • Don't review a page if you are not sure what to do. Just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Remember that quality is quintessential to good patrolling. Take your time to patrol each article, there is no rush. Use the message feature and offer basic advice.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In case of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, the right can be revoked at any time by an administrator. Lord Roem ~ (talk) 05:12, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

G6 and disambiguation pages[edit]

Hi Kuyabribri. Thanks for helping clean up unnecessary disambiguation pages! I wanted to let you know that I have declined to delete a few such pages that you nominated for speedy deletion with the {{db-disambig}} tag. According to WP:G6, disambiguation pages with "(disambiguation)" in the title are generally only eligible for speedy deletion when there is either one or zero blue-linked articles being disambiguated. For several of the pages that you nominated (e.g. Brilliant Corners (disambiguation)), since there was more than one extant article being disambiguated, WP:PROD is the better option for deletion. I know this is a hassle, but it does give more time for other editors to object in case there's something we missed. All the best, Mz7 (talk) 21:50, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Twinkle barfed? Nah. I blame CATS.[edit]

A tortoiseshell cat, similar to the one that created the AfD in question

Hi Kuyabribri, and thanks for your message.
I think went something like this. I had the Twinkle dialog box open with the AfD rationale mostly written up, then got distracted.
When I came back, my cat was siting on the keyboard, and the AfD was already submitted. I considered fixing it up. Or possibly creating the account User:Misssy (rescue cat) and asking her to fix it up, but as you can see, her typing skills aren't that great. Either way, I let it slip, as I'm currently pursuing a personal XTREME TURNING UP TO WORK EARLY project. Hey, I was at my desk at <blink> 8:20 am </blink> today!!!1111eleven.
Thanks again. Pete AU aka --Shirt58 (talk) 09:34, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

@Shirt58: Oddly enough right after I left you that message I wondered if it just so happened that a cat wandered across your keyboard. If not made for sits, why is it made of warm, right? —KuyaBriBriTalk 13:49, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

New Page Review - Newsletter No.4[edit]

Hello Kuyabribri,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Since rolling out the right in November, just 6 months ago, we now have 709 reviewers, but the backlog is still mysteriously growing fast. If every reviewer did just 55 reviews, the 22,000 backlog would be gone, in a flash, schwoop, just like that!

But do remember: Rather than speed, quality and depth of patrolling and the use of correct CSD criteria are essential to good reviewing. Do not over-tag. Make use of the message feature to let the creator know about your maintenance tags. See the tutorial again HERE. Get help HERE.

Stay up to date with recent new page developments and have your say, read THIS PAGE.

REGARDING Ryan Hurst (UK) Posted by GriffinKemp97 (talk · contribs)[edit]

Thanks for removing both the speedy deletion and proposed deletion tags that were placed on this article by Reddogsix (talk · contribs). Thanks also for the explanation and advice. I will spend the weekend looking for more reliable sources. You can see from videos online that the credits are verifiable, but many of his UK successes were pre internet articles, he is a currently a celebrity in Eastern Europe from a dual language TV series, but many sources are in Polish, is this OK? I will endeavour to spend the time to ensure the articles meet Wikipedia's criteria. Thanks again, your help and advice is really appreciated.

FXCM - Article Slanted Towards Recentism[edit]

Hi there - thanks a lot for adding the note to the FXCM page to state that you think it is slanted towards Wikipedia:recentism. It seems to be the general consensus with this page. How would you recommend this is resolved? I've tried amending the article and fixing some of the factual errors but there's a user User:Smallbones who is rather keen the page maintains this slanted view. Any thoughts on how to approach this would be most welcome. Lenticularphoto (talk) 19:01, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi, the tag was actually added by Sargdub (talk · contribs), not me. I don't wish to get involved with the article's issues on the talk page, but if you seem to be at an impasse with other editors I suggest you check dispute resolution. Thanks, —KuyaBriBriTalk 20:25, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion[edit]

Hi, I looked for a page on a band because I liked their album. There was no page, so I Googled their info and created a Wikipedia page about them. Why was it immediately deleted. It was factual about a real band. The band don't exist anymore, so no one is profiting from it. Just doesn't make sense. The info is found on Internet just not on Wikipedia.

Advice?

Why delete?

{{JackDaw67 (talk) 18:36, 19 June 2017 (UTC)}} JackDaw67 (talk) 18:36, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi, I'm not entirely sure which article you are talking about, but in general any article must meet the notability criteria in order to be included on Wikipedia. Bands and musicians have their own notability criteria which are listed here.
If an article you created on a band was speedily deleted, it's likely that the article contained no credible claim of significance. If an article merely says "Joe's band was founded in 2017, its members are Joe, Bob, and Jim, and it has a self-titled album", there is no credible claim of significance because nothing tells me that X isn't just some garage band that plays at open mic night at the local bar. Note that making a credible claim of significance (e.g., that the band is signed to a record label that has a Wikipedia article, has played at a notable venue, or even has a member that is related to a famous person) will not entirely prevent an article from being deleted, and an article that does not meet the notability criteria can still be deleted after a week-long community discussion.
Please take some time to look through the links I've provided above before attempting to create an article on a band. Thanks, —KuyaBriBriTalk 19:03, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

Re: Speedy Deletion (Canceled)[edit]

I Am Sure, There is nothing wrong. There is PD Self. Ask One of the Wikipedia Staff. Ask them if I may or may not keep it. It is not your choice. I put PD-self. So I assure you, there is nothing wrong.

You can't take an image you grabbed from the Internet and claim that you release it into public domain. And the fact that you are currently blocked indicates to me that at least one administrator agrees that you are violating copyrights with your image uploads. —KuyaBriBriTalk 19:54, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion[edit]

Hi I wrote an article providing information about the person (Terry Daidone) that hired GeoHot (George Hotz) the infamous hacker (hacked Sony and Apple iPhone) because Terry Daidone was highlighted in red on George Hotz Wikipedia page. I posted other articles about the significance of the first jailbroken phone which Daidone bought and was thorough about what was paid. There have been a variety of messages including copywritten material, cutting and pasting, significance, etc. and I'm not sure why. The subject of Hotz and Daidone have been in the news lately because of the tenth anniversary of the release of the iPhone and the first hack to "untether" the phone. The redirect from Hotz website now gives significance to the red (now blue) name. Could you tell me how to get all of the warnings about the 1 paragraph artice I wrote off of the page?— Preceding unsigned comment added by Enodiad (talkcontribs) 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Hello, all articles must meet the notability criteria for inclusion on Wikipedia. This usually means that the subject of the article must have been significantly covered in reliable, independent sources. The sources you provided on the article Terry Daidone mention Mr. Daidone in passing, but aren't about him, which is why I believe the article does not meet the notability criteria and why I have nominated the article for deletion. If you can find reliable, independent sources that are about Mr. Daidone I recommend you add them to the article, as I could not find any.
The blue links in the above paragraph link to the official Wikipedia policies about those subjects; please feel free to look through them.
As for the copy-paste tag, another editor placed it there and I don't really know why. I'll remove it. —KuyaBriBriTalk 15:52, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Intel Z370[edit]

If the AfD nomination is withdrawn (which I did), a PROD should generally be ok IMO. In this specific case maybe not, because of the merge tag that I put in place instead of my withdrawn AfD nomination.--Pizzahut2 (talk) 15:12, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Since you withdrew the AFD less than an hour after you opened it and no other user commented on it, I might have been inclined to leave the PROD tag and let an admin sort it out. But the merge tag you left on the article tells me that there is a viable alternative to deletion, hence deletion is not uncontroversial. —KuyaBriBriTalk 15:18, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 12713 pages. Please consider reviewing even just a few pages each day! If everyone helps out, it will really put a dent in the backlog.
  • Currently the backlog stretches back to March and some pages in the backlog have passed the 90 day Google index point. Please consider reviewing some of them!

Outreach and Invitations:

  • If you know other editors with a good understanding of Wikipedia policy, invite them to join NPP by dropping the invitation template on their talk page with: {{subst:NPR invite}}. Adding more qualified reviewers will help with keeping the backlog manageable.

New Year New Page Review Drive

  • A backlog drive is planned for the start of the year, beginning on January 1st and running until the end of the month. Unique prizes will be given in tiers for both the total number of reviews made, as well as the longest 'streak' maintained.
  • Note: quality reviewing is extremely important, please do not sacrifice quality for quantity.

General project update:

  • ACTRIAL has resulted in a significant increase in the quality of new submissions, with noticeably fewer CSD, PROD, and BLPPROD candidates in the new page feed. However, the majority of the backlog still dates back to before ACTRIAL started, so consider reviewing articles from the middle or back of the backlog.
  • The NPP Browser can help you quickly find articles with topics that you prefer to review from within the backlog.

The backlog drive will begin on January 1st and run until January 29th. Prize tiers and other info can be found HERE.

Awards will be given in tiers in two categories:

  • The total number of reviews completed for the month.
  • The minimum weekly total maintained for all four weeks of the backlog drive.

NOTE: It is extremely important that we focus on quality reviewing. Despite our goal of reducing the backlog as much as possible, please do not rush while reviewing.

General project update:

  • ACTRIAL will end it's initial phase on the 14th of March. Our goal is to reduce the backlog significantly below the 90 day index point by the 14th of March. Please consider helping with this goal by reviewing a few additional pages a day.
  • Reviewing redirects is an important and necessary part of New Page Patrol. Please read the guideline on appropriate redirects for advice on reviewing redirects. Inappropriate redirects can be re-targeted or nominated for deletion at RfD.

Reg page Kuldeep Pai[edit]

Sharan (talk) 23:25, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

Aware that the page 'Kuldeep Pai' has been considered as an article for deletion. I would like to mention that Kuldeep Pai is a very popular musician in India and is well-known for his contributions in Hinduism and Spirituality through music.

I have cited references that are available as external links in the main article that are readily available on the internet. However, just so you know, there are media coverages and articles about him covered in various other newspapers and magazines. The printed version of newspapers bearing his articles and awards have been scanned and uploaded in his website under the 'Press' section - http://kuldeepmpai.com/press/ (Infact, the article 'Kuldeeply Passionate' mentions about Kuldeep's gold medal in Indian Music from Madras University which required the citation in the main article).

I am aware that the references from his own resource are deemed invalid and hence was unable to add these as the citation in the main article. Iam trying my earnest to make this an active page in wiki.

Kindly consider the page to be restored and make it an active wiki page.

Link to the article- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuldeep_Pai

Hello @SHARANYABHARATHWAJ:, leaving me a message here won't help prevent deletion of the article, but commenting on the deletion discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kuldeep Pai and otherwise improving the article might help. Please see WP:YFA for some guidance on appropriate article content. —KuyaBriBriTalk 14:38, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

Radmin article reviewing[edit]

Hello @Kuyabribri: I'm writing you regarding Draft:Radmin аrticle because some persons decided to remove this article from Wikipedia and I'm trying to give it a second wind. You wrote in comments to my questions to User talk:MatthewVanitas that you are going to edit Teamviewer article. I kindly ask you also help me improve Draft:Radmin as well, is it possible? Happywren 16:33, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

Perhaps you misread my comments. My only involvement with the TeamViewer article was to comply with the Wikipedia deletion process. I don't care one way or the other on whether that article is deleted. Additionally, I completely agree with the AfC reviews on Draft:Radmin. —KuyaBriBriTalk 17:44, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

New Page Review Newsletter No.10[edit]

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

ACTRIAL:

  • ACTRIAL's six month experiment restricting new page creation to (auto)confirmed users ended on 14 March. As expected, a greatly increased number of unsuitable articles and candidates for deletion are showing up in the feed again, and the backlog has since increased already by ~30%. Please consider reviewing a few extra articles each day.

Paid editing

  • Now that ACTRIAL is inoperative pending discussion, please be sure to look for tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary.

Subject-specific notability guidelines

Nominate competent users for Autopatrolled

  • While patrolling articles, if you find an editor that is particularly competent at creating quality new articles, and that user has created more than 25 articles (rather than stubs), consider nominating them for the 'Autopatrolled' user right HERE.

News

  • The next issue Wikipedia's newspaper The Signpost has now been published after a long delay. There are some articles in it, including ACTRIAL wrap-up that will be of special interest to New Page Reviewers. Don't hesitate to contribute to the comments sections. The Signpost is one of the best ways to stay up date with news and new developments - please consider subscribing to it. All editors of Wikipedia and associated projects are welcome to submit articles on any topic for consideration by the The Signpost's editorial team for the next issue.

Jason Porter[edit]

That AfD was a completely different version of Jason Porter, what's wrong with PRODDING this version? Govvy (talk) 14:27, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

Technically it's only "completely different" if the article was deleted at AfD, which it wasn't. Just trying to save the trouble of waiting 7 days only for an admin to say the same thing. —KuyaBriBriTalk 14:30, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

How do we propose this page for deletion? It's clearly a very low quality, self-promoting article.--128.237.132.27 (talk) 22:19, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Please see WP:AFD. Thank you. —KuyaBriBriTalk 12:28, 18 May 2018 (UTC)
After a closer review of the article, I believe that even if you did nominate this article at AfD, it would be kept because the subject meets several of the criteria at WP:NACADEMIC. It was previously nominated at AfD back in 2014 (see here), and at that time the article was kept on the grounds that the person meets WP:NACADEMIC. The issues you cite should be fixed by improving the article, not deleting it. Thanks, —KuyaBriBriTalk 18:29, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.11 25 May 2018[edit]

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

ACTRIAL:

  • WP:ACREQ has been implemented. The flow at the feed has dropped back to the levels during the trial. However, the backlog is on the rise again so please consider reviewing a few extra articles each day; a backlog approaching 5,000 is still far too high. An effort is also needed to ensure that older unsuitable older pages at the back of the queue do not get automatically indexed for Google.

Deletion tags

  • Do bear in mind that articles in the feed showing the trash can icon may have been tagged by inexperienced or non NPR rights holders. They require your further verification.

Backlog drive:

  • A backlog drive will take place from 10 through 20 June. Check out our talk page at WT:NPR for more details. NOTE: It is extremely important that we focus on quality reviewing. Despite our goal of reducing the backlog as much as possible, please do not rush while reviewing.

Editathons

  • There will be a large increase in the number of editathons in June. Please be gentle with new pages that obviously come from good faith participants, especially articles from developing economies and ones about female subjects. Consider using the 'move to draft' tool rather than bluntly tagging articles that may have potential but which cannot yet reside in mainspace.

Paid editing - new policy

  • Now that ACTRIAL is ACREQ, please be sure to look for tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary. There is a new global WMF policy that requires paid editors to connect to their adverts.

Subject-specific notability guidelines

  • The box at the right contains each of the subject-specific notability guidelines, please review any that are relevant BEFORE nominating an article for deletion.
  • Reviewers are requested to familiarise themselves with the new version of the notability guidelines for organisations and companies.

Not English

  • A common issue: Pages not in English or poor, unattributed machine translations should not reside in main space even if they are stubs. Please ensure you are familiar with WP:NPPNE. Check in Google for the language and content, tag as required, then move to draft if they do have potential.

News

  • Development is underway by the WMF on upgrades to the New Pages Feed, in particular ORES features that will help to identify COPYVIOs, and more granular options for selecting articles to review.
  • The next issue of The Signpost has been published. The newspaper is one of the best ways to stay up to date with news and new developments. between our newsletters.

Universal Soul[edit]

It was rejected from AFD specifically so the only way was a PROD. Please restore it. -- » Shadowowl | talk 14:54, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

@Shadowowl: It was not "rejected" per se; the closure rationale and the closing admin's message on your talk page clearly explain why the discussion was closed and both cite relevant policy and guidance. Please read those before nominating articles for deletion. The TLDR version is that your deletion rationales are valid rationales for improving the article, not deleting. As for the PROD, per policy an article that has been to AfD and kept is permanently ineligible for PROD, so I will not re-add the tag. If you have any further questions I would suggest taking them up with the admin that closed the AfD. —KuyaBriBriTalk 15:08, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
I took it to AFD for the 3th time. -- » Shadowowl | talk 15:21, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
@Shadowowl: I don't 100% agree wth the closing admin's previous speedy keep closures (i.e., I wouldn't have done it myself), particularly at the second one. But the closing admin wasn't wrong, either. That said, I took a look at the 3rd nomination and it looks much better, particularly because you cited failing WP:NMUSIC. I don't know if consensus will be to keep or delete (that's what the 7 day discussion is for), but I think and hope that this wouldn't be speedy kept for no deletion rationale. —KuyaBriBriTalk 15:29, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.12 30 July 2018[edit]

Chart of the New Pages Patrol backlog for the past 6 months. (Purge)

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

June backlog drive

Overall the June backlog drive was a success, reducing the last 3,000 or so to below 500. However, as expected, 90% of the patrolling was done by less than 10% of reviewers.
Since the drive closed, the backlog has begun to rise sharply again and is back up to nearly 1,400 already. Please help reduce this total and keep it from raising further by reviewing some articles each day.

New technology, new rules
  • New features are shortly going to be added to the Special:NewPagesFeed which include a list of drafts for review, OTRS flags for COPYVIO, and more granular filter preferences. More details can be found at this page.
  • Probationary permissions: Now that PERM has been configured to allow expiry dates to all minor user rights, new NPR flag holders may sometimes be limited in the first instance to 6 months during which their work will be assessed for both quality and quantity of their reviews. This will allow admins to accord the right in borderline cases rather than make a flat out rejection.
  • Current reviewers who have had the flag for longer than 6 months but have not used the permissions since they were granted will have the flag removed, but may still request to have it granted again in the future, subject to the same probationary period, if they wish to become an active reviewer.
Editathons
  • Editathons will continue through August. Please be gentle with new pages that obviously come from good faith participants, especially articles from developing economies and ones about female subjects. Consider using the 'move to draft' tool rather than bluntly tagging articles that may have potential but which cannot yet reside in mainspace.
The Signpost
  • The next issue of the monthly magazine will be out soon. The newspaper is an excellent way to stay up to date with news and new developments between our newsletters. If you have special messages to be published, or if you would like to submit an article (one about NPR perhaps?), don't hesitate to contact the editorial team here.

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

Hello Kuyabribri, 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.
Other
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).

Stop and listen[edit]

The article Bruce McAbee I proded is a special case. You need to read my prod statement carefully. Then think about it. Then check that the facts are as I represent. We do not blindly follow rules for the sake of following rules. If after conducting a more thorough investigation you still disagree with me, let's talk about it and figure out what to do next. AfD is costly: it takes up people's time, and it takes up administrator time. We don't do AfD when a deletion would be unopposed on the merits by good faith users (ie, not sockpuppets or banned users). Thank you. I am sorry if I am stating the obvious, but the lack of a talk message from you leaves me wondering if you knew the circumstances or not. Jehochman Talk 13:59, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Hello? Did you just revert me twice without even having the decency to answer my concerns here? That’s not good form. Please explain your actions. Jehochman Talk 04:00, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
@Jehochman: Actually I did look at the history and did consider leaving your prod tag on the article, so thanks for jumping to conclusions. I removed it anyways because the past AfD was closed as keep, not no consensus or something directly related to the presence of sockpuppets or banned users, which indicates that deletion is not uncontroversial. And before you level accusations at me about lacking "decency" and "good form", please learn to read a page history and a user contribution history. Just because I didn't respond as quickly as you would have liked me to doesn't mean bad faith on my part. Please take a look at WP:AGF and WP:VOLUNTEER. —KuyaBriBriTalk 14:13, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
If you have time to remove a prod tag, but don't have time to reply to a talk page message, it shows incorrect priorities. Talk before reverting. We'll go to AfD again and see how it goes. Jehochman Talk 14:59, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Community Wishlist Proposal
Project updates
  • ORES predictions are now built-in to the feed. These automatically predict the class of an article as well as whether it may be spam, vandalism, or an attack page, and can be filtered by these criteria now allowing reviewers to better target articles that they prefer to review.
  • There are now tools being tested to automatically detect copyright violations in the feed. This detector may not be accurate all the time, though, so it shouldn't be relied on 100% and will only start working on new revisions to pages, not older pages in the backlog.

Hello Kuyabribri,

Community Wishlist Survey – NPP needs you – Vote NOW
  • Community Wishlist Voting takes place 16 to 30 November for the Page Curation and New Pages Feed improvements, and other software requests. The NPP community is hoping for a good turnout in support of the requests to Santa for the tools we need. This is very important as we have been asking the Foundation for these upgrades for 4 years.
If this proposal does not make it into the top ten, it is likely that the tools will be given no support at all for the foreseeable future. So please put in a vote today.
We are counting on significant support not only from our own ranks, but from everyone who is concerned with maintaining a Wikipedia that is free of vandalism, promotion, flagrant financial exploitation and other pollution.
With all 650 reviewers voting for these urgently needed improvements, our requests would be unlikely to fail. See also The Signpost Special report: 'NPP: This could be heaven or this could be hell for new users – and for the reviewers', and if you are not sure what the wish list is all about, take a sneak peek at an article in this month's upcoming issue of The Signpost which unfortunately due to staff holidays and an impending US holiday will probably not be published until after voting has closed.

Please refrain from vandalism[edit]

Your edit on Disguised Toast was unwarranted and not in keeping with the rules you claim to follow. As an experienced editor I would expect better behavior. By the letter of the rules of notability the substance of an article does not over ride the fact that it is not notable, please read and learn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability#General_notability_guidelineGloern (talk) 21:40, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

@Gloern: It is you who needs to familiarize yourself with Wikipedia policies, specifically the deletion policy. Speedy deletion under A7 is intentionally a very low bar, and an article only needs to claim significance to meet that bar; it doesn't actually need to meet the notability criteria. Proposed deletion and articles for deletion are the proper venues for deletion of articles that claim but do not meet notability criteria.
You would also do well to avoid calling edits "vandalism" simply because you don't agree with them. Please see WP:VAND for the definition of what vandalism actually is. —KuyaBriBriTalk 22:15, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
You're right to undo the edit if you wanted to keep it, but it is kind of a moot point. My removal of it was in absense of any need to respond because you were right. I had even already changed the deletion type, my use of it was because that was how the only article I have ever dealt with a deletion attempt was first handled (including a link to what I linked, with 0 reference at any point to the lower standard it actually required), so I copy and pasted it.Gloern (talk) 22:29, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.16 15 December 2018[edit]

Hello Kuyabribri,

Reviewer of the Year
New page reviewer of the year cup.svg

This year's award for the Reviewer of the Year goes to Onel5969. Around on Wikipedia since 2011, their staggering number of 26,554 reviews over the past twelve months makes them, together with an additional total of 275,285 edits, one of Wikipedia's most prolific users.

Thanks are also extended for their work to JTtheOG (15,059 reviews), Boleyn (12,760 reviews), Cwmhiraeth (9,001 reviews), Semmendinger (8,440 reviews), PRehse (8,092 reviews), Arthistorian1977 (5,306 reviews), Abishe (4,153 reviews), Barkeep49 (4,016 reviews), and Elmidae (3,615 reviews).
Cwmhiraeth, Semmendinger, Barkeep49, and Elmidae have been New Page Reviewers for less than a year — Barkeep49 for only seven months, while Boleyn, with an edit count of 250,000 since she joined Wikipedia in 2008, has been a bastion of New Page Patrol for many years.

See also the list of top 100 reviewers.

Less good news, and an appeal for some help

The backlog is now approaching 5,000, and still rising. There are around 640 holders of the NPR flag, most of whom appear to be inactive. The 10% of the reviewers who do 90% of the work could do with some support especially as some of them are now taking a well deserved break.


Really good news - NPR wins the Community Wishlist Survey 2019

At #1 position, the Community Wishlist poll closed on 3 December with a resounding success for NPP, reminding the WMF and the volunteer communities just how critical NPP is to maintaining a clean encyclopedia and the need for improved tools to do it. A big 'thank you' to everyone who supported the NPP proposals. See the results.


Training video

Due to a number of changes having been made to the feed since this three-minute video was created, we have been asked by the WMF for feedback on the video with a view to getting it brought up to date to reflect the new features of the system. Please leave your comments here, particularly mentioning how helpful you find it for new reviewers.

Hello Kuyabribri,

News
Discussions of interest
  • Two elements of CSD G6 have been split into their own criteria: R4 for redirects in the "File:" namespace with the same name as a file or redirect at Wikimedia Commons (Discussion), and G14 for disambiguation pages which disambiguate zero pages, or have "(disambiguation)" in the title but disambiguate a single page (Discussion).
  • {{db-blankdraft}} was merged into G13 (Discussion)
  • A discussion recently closed with no consensus on whether to create a subject-specific notability guideline for theatrical plays.
  • There is an ongoing discussion on a proposal to create subject-specific notability guidelines for chemicals and organism taxa.
Reminders
  • NPR is not a binary keep / delete process. In many cases a redirect may be appropriate. The deletion policy and its associated guideline clearly emphasise that not all unsuitable articles must be deleted. Redirects are not contentious. See a classic example of the templates to use. More templates are listed at the R template index. Reviewers who are not aware, do please take this into consideration before PROD, CSD, and especially AfD because not even all admins are aware of such policies, and many NAC do not have a full knowledge of them.
NPP Tools Report
  • Superlinks – allows you to check an article's history, logs, talk page, NPP flowchart (on unpatrolled pages) and more without navigating away from the article itself.
  • copyvio-check – automatically checks the copyvio percentage of new pages in the background and displays this info with a link to the report in the 'info' panel of the Page curation toolbar.
  • The NPP flowchart now has clickable hyperlinks.

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

Niharika Kohli, a product manager for the growth team, announced that work is underway in implementing improvements to New Page Patrol as part of the 2019 Community Wishlist and suggests all who are interested watch the project page on meta. Two requested improvements have already been completed. These are:

  • Allow filtering by no citations in page curation
  • Not having CSD and PRODs automatically marked as reviewed, reflecting current consensus among reviewers and current Twinkle functionality.
Reliable Sources for NPP

Rosguill has been compiling a list of reliable sources across countries and industries that can be used by new page patrollers to help judge whether an article topic is notable or not. At this point further discussion is needed about if and how this list should be used. Please consider joining the discussion about how this potentially valuable resource should be developed and used.

Backlog drive coming soon

Look for information on the an upcoming backlog drive in our next newsletter. If you'd like to help plan this drive, join in the discussion on the New Page Patrol talk page.

New Page Review newsletter July-August 2019[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Kuyabribri,

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

More new features are being added to the feed, including the important red alert for previously deleted pages. This will only work if it is selected in your filters. Best is to 'select all'. Do take a moment to check out all the new features if you have not already done so. If anything is not working as it should, please let us know at NPR. There is now also a live queue of AfC submissions in the New Pages Feed. Feel free to review AfCs, but bear in mind that NPP is an official process and policy and is more important.

QUALITY of REVIEWING

Articles are still not always being checked thoroughly enough. If you are not sure what to do, leave the article for a more experienced reviewer. Please be on the alert for any incongruities in patrolling and help your colleagues where possible; report patrollers and autopatrolled article creators who are ostensibly undeclared paid editors. The displayed ORES alerts offer a greater 'at-a-glance' overview, but the new challenges in detecting unwanted new content and sub-standard reviewing do not necessarily make patrolling any easier, nevertheless the work may have a renewed interest factor of a different kind. A vibrant community of reviewers is always ready to help at NPR.

Backlog

The backlog is still far too high at between 7,000 and 8,000. Of around 700 user rights holders, 80% of the reviewing is being done by just TWO users. In the light of more and more subtle advertising and undeclared paid editing, New Page Reviewing is becoming more critical than ever.

Move to draft

NPR is triage, it is not a clean up clinic. This move feature is not limited to bios so you may have to slightly re-edit the text in the template before you save the move. Anything that is not fit for mainspace but which might have some promise can be draftified - particularly very poor English and machine and other low quality translations.

Notifying users

Remember to use the message feature if you are just tagging an article for maintenance rather than deletion. Otherwise articles are likely to remain perma-tagged. Many creators are SPA and have no intention of returning to Wikipedia. Use the feature too for leaving a friendly note note for the author of a first article you found well made or interesting. Many have told us they find such comments particularly welcoming and encouraging.

PERM

Admins are now taking advantage of the new time-limited user rights feature. If you have recently been accorded NPR, do check your user rights to see if this affects you. Depending on your user account preferences, you may receive automated notifications of your rights changes. Requests for permissions are not mini-RfAs. Helpful comments are welcome if absolutely necessary, but the bot does a lot of the work and the final decision is reserved for admins who do thorough research anyway.

Other news

School and academic holidays will begin soon in various places around the Western world. Be on the lookout for the usual increase in hoax, attack, and other junk pages.

Our next newsletter might be announcing details of a possible election for co-ordinators of NPR. If you think you have what it takes to micro manage NPR, take a look at New Page Review Coordinators - it's a job that requires a lot of time and dedication.
