The expert-subject tag[edit]

I noticed that you added the {{expert-subject}} tag to some articles. When using that tag, you need to specify a WikiProject who can help with the article, or it won't work properly, like this.

For example, {{expert-subject|Technology}} assigns an article to WikiProject Technology. I wanted to point that out, just in case. 1ForTheMoney (talk) 22:32, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

New deal for page patrollers[edit]

Hi Loftwyr,

In order to better control the quality of new pages, keep out the spam, and welcome the genuine newbies, the current system we introduced in 2011 is being updated and improved. The documentation and tutorials have also been revised and given a facelift. Most importantly a new user group New Page Reviewer has been created.

Under the new rule, you may find that you are temporarily unable to mark new pages as reviewed. However, this is nothing to worry about - most current experienced patrollers are being accorded the the new right without the need to apply, and if you have significant previous experience of patrolling new pages, we strongly encourage you to apply for the new right as soon as possible - we need all the help we can get, and we are now providing a dynamic, supportive environment for your work.

Find out more about this exiting new user right now at New Page Reviewers and be sure to read the new tutorial before applying. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 04:29, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
