Missing information regarding 1979 Tulane Green Wave football players who played in NFL[edit]

Hi Lindsay tried to update info on Wikipedia and really sucked at it. I am Nolan Franz. I played on 1979 Liberty Bowl Team as wide receiver. At time I was a sophomore. I signed as FA in 1981 with Buffalo Bills. I played in USFL as NFL with Greenbay Packers in 1986. Research it and maybe you could edit it to be more accurate. Two years later in 1981 I led the team in receptions and we were 6-5. My last game at Tulane we beat our arch rival, LSU 48-7. Can't undue history. :) Nolanfranz (talk) 23:27, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank-you-word-cloud.jpg Hawkeye7 RfA Appreciation award
Thank you for participating in and supporting my RfA. It was very much appreciated. Hawkeye7 (talk) 21:02, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
Hey, Hawkeye7, you're welcome. No matter what the 'crats decide (or decided, it's some time since i looked at the chat Avi started), may i just say that i admire the restraint you showed during the course of the RfA. Lots of people were saying things that can't have been good to read about yourself, but you showed a great deal of dignity and classiness in your responses; cheers, LindsayHello 21:22, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited M5 motorway (Pakistan), you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Ahmedpur and Daur (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Edit to Cyclopia page[edit]

Hi LindsayH. You reverted the page to say "1 in 250 in embryos" are affected with cyclopia. That seems ridiculous to me since we are all from embryos, so 1 in 250 people would be cyclopic. I edited it to accurately say (as it says in other sources) "one in ~250 miscarried fetuses". This was rejected, I think quite incorrectly. I have re-edited this page and added a source also and changed the number to 200 since that's what Leroi says. Cheers and thanks for helping make wikipedia great. - JH — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jiuk (talkcontribs) 22:01, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, Jiuk, i've taken another look, and you are quite correct: I was in error. My apologies, and thank you for following up and correcting me. I was tracking IP edits at the time, so the fact that you were not signed in is what led me to (a) see your edit and (b) wrongly view it as vandalism: The benefits of being signed in, eh?

Beverly Gray cleanup[edit]

Hi, thanks for cleaning up the errors in the Beverly Gray page! One minor note: In the Plagiarism section, you changed "Indeed it does" to "Indeed, it does." The edit makes sense, except that the part changed was part of a quotation from Beverly Gray at the World's Fair, and in the book it the phrase appears without a comma. Worth keeping in mind for future edits, but anyways, thanks again for your work. --Usernameunique (talkcontribs) 09:42, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Glarus Sud[edit]

Hi. You edited the article Glarus Sud with the comment Repair CS1 error(s), replaced: work=KGS Inventar → work= KGS Inventar using AWB. You did make the change described in the comment, but you also unlinked a number of links in the history section. I'm not sure why, as you unlinked some previous municipality names but not others in the same paragraph, and there doesn't seem to be anything that connects the ones that are unlinked and/or distinguishes the ones that are not. Given the lack of an explicit or obvious explanation, I rather assume an accidental mis-edit. I've therefore reinstated the links. If this wasn't accidental please feel free to repeat with explanatory comment. -- chris_j_wood (talk) 12:54, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

Chris j wood, hi there. Yes, i did unlink some names; generally, while using AWB, i'll remove words that have three or more links (i.e., i'll remove links down to two); my usual practice is not to count (or unlink) those in templates or image captions, and leave the first in the article, as the earlier a link is made the better for the reader, i reckon. The only general exception is if a fairly simple word is linked more than once i'll remove all but the first ~ in the Swiss articles i've been doing, for example, Hamlet (place) is linked quite frequently, as is Parish, and i have unlinked quite a few of them.
Quite true, i don't explain that in the edit summary; on the other hand, there are other, essentially silent, changes made, too, such as replacement of templates, removal of whitespace, &c., which also do not receive a mention in the summary. I won't replace the removal (hmm, that's a poor construction), reverting your reinstatement, but i shall probably continue removing links, barring a change to OVERLINK or further objection. Happy days, LindsayHello 13:10, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
In fact, as you can see here, i have added a note to the edit summary; hope this helps! Happy days, LindsayHello 13:23, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
I did wonder if this was an OVERLINKing issue, but as all the places in the history paragraph were also linked in the lead paragraph, and you only unlinked some of them, that didn't seem to make sense. I'm in too minds about whether this is overlinking or not; the lead para refers to a list of places within the current municipality, whilst the history para refers to a list of former municipalities that were merged to create it. Conceptually different things that could have separate articles, but, as it happens, don't in this case. However the reader isn't to know that, so does (s)he perceive it as overlinking or not. Hum. Needs a ponder, I think. -- chris_j_wood (talk) 14:23, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

AWB and removing urls in published[edit]

Please do not remove urls from publishers with AWB as you did here there is on consensus that that this is the correct course of action. This was a change to the template made by a few editors without any input from the wider community. This is a classic example of why such a link is desirable, because it allows an editor to link to a page that shows that the website is not a reliable one. -- PBS (talk) 11:50, 5 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi PBS, thanks for your message. I looked at discussion prior to starting the task of removing the weblink from parameters in the CS1 templates, and have had another look after your message. I have to say that i respectfully disagree; from what i have read there is general agreement that this is the correct course of action, and you alone disagree. That being the case, i will continue to remove the urls from those parameters which generate the red CS1 error messages. Obviously, if you are able to point me to a larger, more recent discussion in which the general consensus is for the presence of the url i shall stop. Happy days, LindsayHello 09:05, 12 November 2016 (UTC)

Track listing / level 1 header[edit]

Hi, I noticed a couple of your edits to the "Track listing" header on some album pages. Is there a particular reason why you made them Level 1 headers? I don't think that's the correct protocol. Maybe it was a mistake on your end? Thanks --Jennica / talk 01:11, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi Jennica; feel free to correct me, if i'm wrong but, assuming you're talking about such pages as Abrázame y Bésame (Jennifer Peña album), which i edited yesterday with my Kahtar account, i think you'll find that i made the headers to the correct level (two "=" at each end), and an IP editor has changed them to the higher, never used, level (one "=" at each end). If you think i was incorrect to use the level 1 heading as i did, i refer you to the appropriate section of the MOS, which shows the preferred organisation. If i have completely misunderstood what you are saying, as i say above, please feel free to correct me! Happy days, LindsayHello 09:10, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

New page reviewer granted[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello LindsayH. 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 15,000 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. -- Samtar talk · contribs 13:36, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

New Page Review - newsletter No.2[edit]

Hello LindsayH,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
A HUGE backlog

We now have 487 New Page Reviewers!
Most of us requested the user right at PERM, expressing a wish to be able to do something about the huge backlog, but the chart on the right does not demonstrate any changes to the pre-user-right levels of October.

Hitting 17,000 soon

The backlog is still steadily growing at a rate of 150 a day or 4,650 a month. Only 20 reviews a day by each reviewer over the next few days would bring the backlog down to a managable level and the daily input can then be processed by each reviewer doing only 2 or 3 reviews a day - that's about 5 minutes work!
It didn't work in time to relax for the Xmas/New Year holidays. Let's see if we can achieve our goal before Easter, otherwise by Thanksgiving it will be closer to 70,000.

Second set of eyes

Remember that we are the only guardians of quality of new articles, we alone have to ensure that pages are being correctly tagged by non-Reviewer patrollers and that new authors are not being bitten.

Abuse

This is even more important and extra vigilance is required considering Orangemoody, and

  1. this very recent case of paid advertising by a Reviewer resulting in a community ban.
  2. this case in January of paid advertising by a Reviewer, also resulting in a community ban.
  3. This Reviewer is indefinitely blocked for sockpuppetry.

Coordinator election[edit]

Kudpung is stepping down after 6 years as unofficial coordinator of New Page Patrolling/Reviewing. There is enough work for two people and two coords are now required. Details are at NPR Coordinators; nominate someone or nominate yourself. Date for the actual suffrage will be published later.

New Page Review - Newsletter No.4[edit]

Hello LindsayH,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Since rolling out the right in November, just 6 months ago, we now have 487 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.

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 18,511 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.
  • Some editors are committing to work specifically on patrolling new pages on 15 July. If you have not reviewed new pages in a while, this might be a good time to be involved. Please remember that quality of patrolling is more important than quantity, that the speedy deletion criteria should be followed strictly, and that ovetagging for minor issues should be avoided.

Technology update:

  • Several requests have been put into Phabractor to increase usability of the New Pages Feed and the Page Curation toolbar. For more details or to suggest improvements go to Wikipedia:Page Curation/Suggested improvements
  • The tutorial has been updated to include links to the following useful userscripts. If you were not aware of them, they could be useful in your efforts reviewing new pages:

Actually[edit]

These words are not made up. Can you tell me which one is? And you didn't revert some. You reverted all of my edits. 92.6.181.11 (talk) 09:37, 22 July 2017 (UTC)

Incestuous is the correct word; incestual is incorrect. Sibcestual does not seem to exist. Twincest may, but is not common, nor necessary. So please, adhere to the norms, both of Wikipedia and of English. Happy days, LindsayHello 09:41, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
However, incest is more of a legal term compared to the others. A legal term is not appropriate imo on an page of historical note where such legal issues didn't exist. Nor is it appripriate in a novel-like scene wherein there are no law-related storylines. Any comment on that? 92.6.181.11 (talk) 09:45, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
Irrelevant, i'm afraid, if it is the correct term. Sibcest is not a real word ~ did you just make it up? Twincest, though in a small amount of use, appears to be a neologism; i left it in one of the places you inserted it, because you did at least wlink to it. As for a "legal term" in plots, it really doesn't matter ~ and incest isn't a legal term, anyway, any more than rape is or theft: They are each correct, common words which have use in the legal profession. Happy days, LindsayHello 09:51, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
If you actually speak to a lexicographer, they'd tell you any word that is in usage beyond the original coiner is a word. Sibcest, twincest and incestual are all in usage beyond their original coiners. Rare/uncommon words are not banned on wikipedia. Seems like you're making up wikipedia rules as you go along. 92.6.181.11 (talk) 09:53, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
My intention with my edits was to delineate nuance in different contexts, rather than a the blanket term "incest". Wikipedia was designed for readers and I imagine some other readers would prefer nuance and delineation rather than blanket/sweeping and judgemental terminology. Can we come to some sort of compromise wherein you'd self-revert at least some of your reverts? 92.6.181.11 (talk) 09:56, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
