Seminole Heights Page[edit]

Hello. My edits were completely constructive and factual. They provide a source that the "official seal" of Seminole Heights is a hoax. It also provides the original source the false seal claims to have come from—the 1912 Hillsborough High School Yearbook. I have access to the yearbook and this false seal does not appear anywhere in it's pages, and the faked seal doesn't even have the company name correct. Please cease reverting my changes as they are valid and sourced. Thank you.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 4thgenTPA (talkcontribs)

Seminole Heights[edit]

When the source claims an image as proof that a seal existed in a year book, the only source that can refute that is an image of the original, unaltered source. What other source would you like me to provide? Certainly any other source would be second hand in this case. This isn't an image that disproves another image as factual, it's not being provided as a source to make a claim.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 4thgenTPA (talkcontribs)

Why did you undo my changes to the Penn Jillette article?[edit]

I linked several words which have Wikipedia pages devoted to them. Why did you un-link these words? It seems to me that un-linking them makes it that much harder for readers to find out more about some of those words...so what's your reasoning behind doing it? Chillowack (talk) 00:06, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

Please read MOS:OVERLINK about which words should generally not be linked. Also, the link to best-selling author is actually a redirect to a list of books of which Jillette is not listed and therefore should not be used. The explanation was given in the edit summary as well.--☾Loriendrew☽ (ring-ring) 00:11, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, I see your reasoning now.Chillowack (talk) 00:45, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

New Page Reviewer Newsletter[edit]

Hello Loriendrew, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 14304 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 day.
  • Currently there are 532 pages in the backlog that were created by non-autoconfirmed users before WP:ACTRIAL. The NPP project is undertaking a drive to clear these pages from the backlog before they hit the 90 day Google index point. Please consider reviewing a few today!

Technology update:

  • The Wikimedia Foundation is currently working on creating a new filter for page curation that will allow new page patrollers to filter by extended confirmed status. For more information see: T175225

General project update:

  • On 14 September 2017 the English Wikipedia began the autoconfirmed article creation trial. For a six month period, creation of articles in the mainspace of the English Wikipedia will be restricted to users with autoconfirmed status. New users who attempt article creation will now be redirected to a newly designed landing page.
  • Before clicking on a reference or external link while reviewing a page, please be careful that the site looks trustworthy. If you have a question about the safety of clicking on a link, it is better not to click on it.
  • To keep up with the latest conversation on New Pages Patrol or to ask questions, you can go to Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Reviewers and add it to your watchlist.

You reverted my edits on Harry Chapin page[edit]

Please undo your revert of my edits. I added something to the biography section of the page that I feel should’ve been added. I cited evidence for this edit, therefore what I said is truthful. What did you find wrong with my edit? If it is a legitimate argument then I’ll gladly fix it. But if it isn’t I’m putting my edit back. Thanks. 2600:1004:B100:92B4:388E:12A5:EF4A:4C62 (talk) 16:30, 20 September 2017 (UTC)Brandon --☾Loriendrew☽ (ring-ring) 02:09, 3 September 2017 (UTC)\

There is a generic format to follow which can be found at MOS:BLPLEAD. Basically, the lead is a summary, generally should not contain citations (references) as they would be in the body of the article, or contain subjective puff phrases or peacock statements. Also, as mentioned on the talk page of your other anonymous IP account, read up on edit warring.--☾Loriendrew☽ (ring-ring) 19:27, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. I understand my mistake now. Thank you for pointing that out for me. I read both wiki pages that you sent about puffing. That lead me to rephrase. I put at the end of the section, "Chapin has been described by many sources as one of the most popular songwriters of the 1970s" This is a verifiable fact. And the statement in general isn't false either. Chapin was one of the most popular songwriters of the 70s. Also, the editing war was solved with an agreement.

Roller Hockey World Cup and Women's Roller Hockey World Cup pages[edit]

Sorry, but could you change these two page titles' to World Skate Roller Hockey World Cup and World Skate Women's Roller Hockey World Cup like you did in this FIRS Intercontinental Cup to World Skate Intercontinental Cup? I'd be grateful.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.242.48.58 (talkcontribs)

EDIT: Actually, It would be better if you removed the World Skate part from the Intercontinental Cup title (and the Roller Hockey World Cup and Women's Roller Hockey World Cup) and just let the Roller Hockey name because I don't know if in spite o being organized by World Skate the competitons' name changed.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.242.48.58 (talkcontribs)

Before any other renaming, find out the actual name of the tourney.--☾Loriendrew☽ (ring-ring) 23:08, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
In that case, where did you find out the Intercontinental Cup was named World Skate Intercontinental Cup? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.242.48.58 (talk) 02:53, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

A question[edit]

Hi there. I thank you for issuing this warning. I am the blocking admin for that account, so I was wondering if you could let me know of what IP address that you suspect that editor is using to block evade. Let me know if you get the chance. Thanks! Sergecross73 msg me 14:05, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Not absolutely certain and did not want to initiate an SPI, but seeing how Patricia CV just blanked the talk page it may be more convincing. It started with Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Radio Disney Music Award for Best Band, an article the user created, then dispersed into the various RDMA award years. They were specifically asked to comment on this creation but apparently declined. Recently an IPv6 had the knowledge/experience to specifically undo my removal of these entries, (see [1] and [2]), followed by a user making a comment [3] and attempted to comment on the closed AFD. Although potentially unrelated, all of this is a bit on the suspicious side.--☾Loriendrew☽ (ring-ring) 23:12, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Reply (removed infobox)[edit]

Hi, rather message you than get into a stupid editing war. My reason for removing the infobox on this page link was that it, in my opinion is of very poor quality and could be done a lot better, if you disagree then so be it. My intention was to remove it until I had a better one as a replacement. apologies for the rushed response --JoshuaTaylor 02:18, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Rather than remove, improve or fix the infobox. They exist and seemingly serve a purpose.--☾Loriendrew☽ (ring-ring) 02:25, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Indeed. Remove this section if you wish. Regards --JoshuaTaylor 02:27, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

New Page Reviewer Newsletter[edit]

Hello Loriendrew, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

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.
  • To keep up with the latest conversation on New Pages Patrol or to ask questions, you can go to Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Reviewers and add it to your watchlist.
