FAC voluntary mentoring scheme[edit]

During a recent lengthy discussion on the WP:FAC talkpage, several ideas were put forward as to how this procedure could be improved, particularly in making it more user-friendly towards first-time nominees. The promotion rate for first-timers at FAC is depressingly low – around 16 percent – which is a cause for concern. To help remedy this, Mike Christie and I, with the co-operation of the FAC coordinators, have devised a voluntary mentoring scheme, in which newcomers will guided by more experienced editors through the stages of preparation and submission of their articles. The general format of the scheme is explained in more detail on Wikipedia: Mentoring for FAC, which also includes a list of editors who have indicated that they are prepared to act as mentors.

Would you be prepared to take on this role occasionally? If so, please add your name to the list. By doing so you incur no obligation; it will be entirely for you to decide how often and on which articles you want to act in this capacity. We anticipate that the scheme will have a trial run for a few months before we appraise its effectiveness. Your participation will be most welcome. Brianboulton (talk) 20:12, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Strepsirrhini for TFA[edit]

@Crisco 1492: I tried fixing something, but it won't let me. Could you please change this: "Lemurs have a toothcomb…" to: "Nearly all living strepsirrhines have a toothcomb…" – Maky « talk » 15:05, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Apologies. I just got back online today. I was in Makassar with little internet for the last three days. It appears someone got it. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 08:42, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
