Scott Mitchell[edit]

you probably want to revert further, since your revert didn't actually remove anything important. Frietjes (talk) 21:04, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

@Frietjes: Oops! Thanks for that. Leschnei (talk) 22:59, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Looking (disambiguation))[edit]

Hi, I put a CSD tag on this because you requested deletion and it was at the wrong title. Cheers, Rubbish computer (Talk: Contribs) 03:35, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

@Rubbish computer: Thank you! Leschnei (talk) 13:04, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

Re: Ave Maria[edit]

There is no Ave Maria on Libera (choir) because it's in the Libera, Luminosa, and other albums which don't have any pages on WP created. (It's also in Visions (Libera album) but the name of Robert Prizeman is not mentioned.

There are some credible references such as on iTunes, Sheet Music Plus that clearly credit R. Prizeman as the composer. However, I don't see the reference section on the disambiguation page, so I didn't add them. --Thammarith (talk) 09:44, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

@Thammarith: I never doubted that Libera has performed Ave Maria. However, disambiguation pages are supposed to be guides to existing information, to guide readers to the appropriate page if the name they are looking for is ambiguous (like Ave Maria). For that reason, DAB pages shouldn't have new information and definitely no references or other external links. If you would like to add Ave Maria to Libera (choir) (hopefully with a reliable source), it could then be added back to the disambiguation page. I would suggest that you take a look at the links that I put on your talk page and you could read through wp:disambiguation if you would like to learn more about DAB pages. But mostly, just keep editing and don't worry about small mistakes - we all make them and other editors fix them. Leschnei (talk) 13:04, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

toggle ref check[edit]

Hello, just a note to say that User:Lingzhi2/reviewsourcecheck has been update to add the option to toggle it on or off.

Refck screenshot.png

The installed script will add a tab to the drop-down tab at the top, located between the 'watchlist star' and the search box (using the vector.js skin). The tab toggles between "Hide ref check" and "Show ref check" with displaying the errors as the default option. Please do drop me a line if you have any problems or suggestions. Tks. ♦ Lingzhi2 (talk) 15:10, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

  • Sorry to bother you again. After the addition of a toggle option in the tab atop the page, one editor requested a revised version in which the toggle link appears in the "Tools" section of the page's left sidebar. So now there are two versions of this tool. If you prefer the links in the Toolbar section on the side, the slightly altered script is named User:Lingzhi2/reviewsourcecheck-sb.js (just add "-sb" before the ".js"). Finally, both versions should now also store the page state (whether reference errors/warnings are "hidden" or "shown"). The state persists between page loads and between the browser closing and reopening (unless cleared by the user, for example by deleting data in your browser's cache etc.). Huge thanks to User:Evad37 for much coding help. If you have any questions or problems, please drop me a line. Thanks again. ♦ Lingzhi2 (talk) 08:32, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

March GOCE newsletter[edit]

Guild of Copy Editors March 2019 Newsletter
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello and welcome to the March newsletter, a brief update of Guild activities since December 2018. All being well, we're planning to issue these quarterly in 2019, balancing the need to communicate widely with the avoidance of filling up talk pages. Don't forget you can unsubscribe at any time; see below.

January Drive: Thanks to everyone for the splendid work in January's Backlog Elimination Drive. We removed copyedit tags from all of the articles tagged in our original target months of June, July and August 2018, and by 24 January we ran out of articles. After adding September, we finished the month with 8 target articles remaining and 842 left in the backlog. GOCE copyeditors also completed 48 requests for copyedit in January. Of the 31 people who signed up for this drive, 24 copyedited at least one article. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

Blitz: Thanks to everyone who participated in the February Blitz. Of the 15 people who signed up, 13 copyedited at least one article. Participants claimed 32 copyedits, including 15 requests. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

Progress report: As of 23:39, 18 March 2019 (UTC), GOCE copyeditors have completed 108 requests since 1 January and the backlog stands at 851 articles.

March Drive: The month-long March drive is now underway; the target months are October and November 2018. Awards will be given to everyone who copyedits at least one article from the backlog. Sign up here!

Election reminder: It may only be March but don't forget our mid-year Election of Coordinators opens for nominations on 1 June. Coordinators normally serve a six-month term and are elected on an approval basis. Self-nominations are welcome. If you've thought of helping out at the Guild, or know of another editor who would make a good coordinator, please consider standing for election or nominating them here.

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

Don't You Think "We're All In It Together" = "We're All In This Together"[edit]

Hi Leschnei: Why don't you think that the page We're All In This Together should reference an expression of this sentiment that predates these by 20 years, albeit by talking about being in "it" as opposed to "this". In fact, this reference was made in a film, Brazil, that the British Film Institute called the 54th best British film of all time, the reference is from a not insignificant contribution to world culture. I realize this is picayune but if the purpose of this page is to show different expressions of, as the page says, "a common expression of solidarity" shouldn’t we reference this early use. In fact, the reference you eliminated was clear that the words are not exactly the same and placing it as placed at the end, in the least prominent spot. HighAtop94 (talk) 00:33, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

HighAtop94 I didn't base my edit on the particular phrase that was used or the importance of the linked articles but on the fact this is a disambiguation page. The purpose of a disambiguation is not to show different examples of how a phrase is used but to guide readers to the article that they are looking for. If a reader were interested in the phrase "We're All In It Together" or "We're All In This Together", they wouldn't find any mention of it at Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, United Kingdom government austerity programme, or Brazil (1985 film). In other words, it would not help the reader at all to send them to those pages. And per WP:DABSISTER, entries generally don't rely on a link to sister projects like wWkiquote. Leschnei (talk) 01:49, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
Well OK I disagree but yield of course. If "...the purpose of the disambiguation is ... to guide readers to the article they are looking for..." then I bet a lot of people remember that line from Brazil, don't really know if the pronoun was "it" or "this" and my entry would have helped them. To help future readers I'm going to mention the George Osborne quote in the talk page where the movie quote already resides, if you delete it I promise I won't bug you about that. And, any chance we can get listed on List of Wikipedia controversies? This is as good as the monkey selfie. HighAtop94 (talk) 02:40, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
I agree that the line from Brazil is very well known. Maybe you could add it to the article; then it would belong on the disambiguation page. As it is, I think that one of the purposes of Wikiquotes is exactly what you stated - to help readers track down quotes and phrases. I'm not sure that we're controversial enough for List of Wikipedia controversies but what the heck! (I promise I won't delete it.) Leschnei (talk) 11:53, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
