Disambiguation link notification

Hi. When you recently edited Pope John Paul II, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page MEP(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.

Surplus spaces

Hi. Sorry for disturb, it's for a technical issue. In your general fixes using AWB and removing surplus spaces in some articles you have also removed the "empty space" after the "pipe", to categorize an article in its own category (ex.: London is categorized as [[Category:London| ]], not [[Category:London]]). This standard procedure to categorize is explained here (Arrange for the article to appear etc...) . Anyway, I'm fixing some articles with "their own category". Is it possible to do it automatically for the remaining ones? I'm not an expert of WP tools as AWB, HotCat or to flag a bot. Regards.--Dэя-Бøяg 20:24, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi Derborg, I see you've already fixed it. Thank you very much. The change you refer to was an unexpected effect of removing whitedspace. :-(
Thank you for fixing it. -- Marek.69talk 01:07, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Peer review limits changed

This is a notice to all users who currently have at least one open peer review at Wikipedia:Peer review. Because of the large number of peer review requests and relatively low number of reviewers, the backlog of PRs has been at 20 or more almost continually for several months. The backlog is for PR requests which have gone at least four days without comments, and some of these have gone two weeks or longer waiting for a review.

While we have been able to eventually review all PRs that remain on the backlog, something had to change. As a result of the discussion here, the consensus was that all users are now limited to one (1) open peer review request.

If you already have more than one open PR, that is OK in this transition period, but you cannot open any more until all your active PR requests have been closed. If you would like someone to close a PR for you, please ask at Wikipedia talk:Peer review. If you want to help with the backlog, please review an article whoe PR request is listed at Wikipedia:Peer review/backlog/items. Thanks, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 01:33, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

something amiss?

I think so, just going by comments on the peer review, and the urls in the references are always changing. --Marek.69talk 03:50, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
Is there a way of making the references more permanent? -- Marek.69talk 04:11, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
I was thinking it might have been a mis-click, like this one surely was. You'd cut the bottom half of the article off ;-) I didn't look at the review. You could use Wayback Machine links orWebCites if links are rotting on you. Alarbus (talk) 05:06, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
I am sorry Alarbus, I really have no idea how that happened. Thank you for fixing it :-) :-) -- Marek.69talk 17:49, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

JP II PR

I am sorry I did not reply sooner - I see the peer review has been closed and that it received quite a lot of comments. How about you work on those and when you think that the article is ready (all the previous comments from the PR and failed GAN have been addressed), ping me and I will be glad to review it.

Request for Comment on the Berlin page

Hi - since you edited the Berlin page within the last couple months, I'm writing to ask if you'd like to weigh in on a current content dispute that has resulted in a request for comment. The issue, simply, is whether the Berlin article should include an image of the "Buddy Bears" or not. Thanks for your time,Sindinero (talk) 16:29, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Pope John Paul II

Hi,

I'm sorry for the lateness of my reply, I've not had much time in the last weeks! I don't know how much this matters now, but I just wanted to say that the Pope John Paul II page seems to be in great shape - there are many references, most of which seem good, and they seem formatted properly, the information seems detailed... I will admit, I only looked at the page briefly, thus there may be some issues which I may have accidentally overlooked, yet, on the surface, it seems to be a very good, GA-esque article.

Best wishes

--&レア (talk) 12:16, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi Marek--

Kind Sir:

You left me a message twice before-- one of which I missed (somehow it flashed by too fast).

Being a Newbie, I have not wanted to remove spam myself. And I have not wanted to Edit myself.

I do not wish to get into a debate on the Talk page-- so I post and *move on*.

Today, was absurd. Versageek rather than recognize that I was pointing out Spam, pushed a button to revert. Why should I change Spam? I understand I have such Authority, but it is not my job. I do not get paid.

Wikipedia is in danger of falling to Spam; it is no longer my concern.

Again, thanks for your kind assistance.

TheLordSayeth (talk) 08:28, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

There is some sort of major misunderstanding. An unregistered user added spam to Massage and TheLordSayeth added a comment to the article saying the link was spam. Then Versageek restored the article to how it was before the spam was added. That would appear to be a good thing, and there should be no need to post messages about it. Johnuniq (talk) 09:13, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

This is real

Ok I was a former bodyguard and I recently put part of a post up and my instructer told me to search for aids on needles and or knives that is why I said no one wants butt hole aids. — Precedingunsigned comment added by 74.94.104.158 (talk) 16:09, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

GOCE March 2012 Backlog Elimination progress graphs

Greetings from the Guild of Copy Editors March 2012 Backlog elimination drive! Here's the mid-drive newsletter.

Participation: We have had 58 people sign up for this drive so far, which compares favorably with our last drive, and 27 have copy-edited at least one article. If you have signed up but have not yet copy-edited any articles, please consider doing so. Every bit helps! If you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late. Join us!

Progress report: Our target of completing the 2010 articles has almost been reached, with only 56 remaining of the 194 we had at the start of the drive. The last ones are always the most difficult, so thank you if you are able to help copy-edit any of the remaining articles. We have reduced the total backlog by 163 articles so far.

Special thanks: Special thanks to Stfg, who has been going through the backlog and doing some preliminary vetting of the articles—removing copyright violations, doing initial clean-up, and nominating some for deletion. This work has helped make the drive a more pleasant experience for all our volunteers.

Your drive coordinators – Dianna (talk), Stfg (talk), and Dank (talk)

Campione d'Italia province and region

I see that you stated that Campione d'Italia will be also part of the Province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossiola (and therefore of Region Piedmont) starting from 2013, but there are no news in Italian or Swiss press about this change, and no source is cited. Moreover, the Italian version of the Wikipedia article does not mention about that. I think that a citation would be needed. Thank you in advance. — Precedingunsigned comment added by 151.21.15.159 (talk) 20:21, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Congratuations!
I will take another look when I have some more time and give you more feedback. :-)
Wishing you good luck (and fun) with your article writing.

GOCE March drive wrap-up

Guild of Copy Editors March 2012 backlog elimination drive
Writing Magnifying.PNG
GOCE March 2012 Backlog Elimination progress graph

Greetings from the Guild of Copy Editors March 2012 Backlog elimination drive! This is the most successful drive we have had for quite a while. Here is your end-of-drive wrap-up newsletter.

Participation

Of the 70 people who signed up for this drive, 40 copy-edited at least one article. Thanks to all who participated! Special acknowledgement goes out to Lfstevens, who did over 200 articles, most of them in the last third of the drive, and topped all three leaderboard categories. You're a superstar! Stfg and others have been pre-checking the articles for quality and conformance to Wikipedia guidelines; some have been nominated for deletion or had some preliminary clean-up done to help make the copy-edit process more fun and appealing. Thanks to all who helped get those nasty last few articles out of the target months.

Progress report

During this drive we were successful in eliminating our target months—October, November, and December 2010—from the queue, and have now eliminated all the 2010 articles from our list. We were able to complete 500 articles this month! End-of-drive results and barnstar information can be found here.

When working on the backlog, please keep in mind that there are options other than copy-editing available; some articles may be candidates for deletion, or may not be suitable for copy-editing at this time for other reasons. The {{GOCEreviewed}} tag can be placed on any article you find to be totally uneditable, and you can nominate for deletion any that you discover to be copyright violations or completely unintelligible. If you need help deciding what to do, please contact any of the coordinators.

Thank you for participating in the March 2012 drive! All contributions are appreciated. Our next copy-edit drive will be in May.

Super Earths

Having just read an article in the National Geographic on a new "Super Earth", which turns out to be a very unpleasant place in all aspects like temperature (2000°C), twice the size and eight times the mass of our Blue Planet, I looked up the definition in Wikipedia and found your contribution on the talk page. Previously, I was sure that a "super earth" was at least required to orbit the sun in the habitable zone, where water is basically fluid; a minimum requirement for life (as we know it). From there, I wonder who defined this most irritating definition of some rocky planet which may have extreme conditions in most other data; after all, such a body in space would have nothing to do with Earth, but suggests a connection anyway. Would it not be worth while challenging this weird definition to something more meaningful (in the direction I've pointed out above)?

Participation: Out of 49 people signed up for this drive so far, 26 have copy-edited at least one article. It's a smaller group than last drive, but we're making good progress. If you've signed up but haven't yet copy-edited any articles, please consider doing so. Every bit helps! If you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late. Join us!

Progress report: We're on track to meet our targets for the drive, largely due to the efforts of Lfstevens and the others on the leaderboard. Thanks to all. We have reduced our target group of articles—January, February, and March 2011—by over half, and it looks like we will achieve that goal. Good progress is being made on the overall backlog as well, with over 500 articles copy-edited during the drive so far. The total backlog currently sits at around 3200 articles.

Hall of Fame: GOCE coordinator Diannaa was awarded a spot in the GOCE Hall of Fame this month! She has copy-edited over 1567 articles during these drives, and surpassed the 1,000,000-word mark on May 5. On to the second million! – Your drive coordinators: Dank,Diannaa and Stfg

Writing Magnifying.PNG

Participation: Out of 54 people who signed up this drive, 32 copy-edited at least one article. Last drive's superstar,Lfstevens, again stood out, topping the leader board in all three categories and copy-editing over 700 articles. Thanks to all who participated! Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

Progress report: We were once again successful in our primary goal—removing the oldest three months from the backlog—while removing 1166 articles from the queue, the second-most in our history. The total backlog currently sits at around 2600 articles, down from 8323 when we started out just over two years ago.

Your pic of actress Jennifer Oneill

Hi.....i see you added a pic of her, but I am afraid this is NOT a pic of her from the Summer of '42 movie; it is also probably copyrighted.... just giving you a heads up....you might do better to use a better picture of her anyway in my humble opinion.

Neutrality of articles

I've seen several articles with a heading "The neutrality of this article is disputed". How does one "dispute" the neutrality of an article? I found one that I believe is clearly biased (a bio of a controversial writer), and I believe I can support this with references. However, I can see it becoming a back and forth, tit-for-tat on the Talk Page, with no resolution. Do you have any advice? Thanks Foreignshore (talk) 00:37, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Writing Magnifying.PNG

  • Participation: Out of 37 people signed up for this drive so far, 19 have copy-edited at least one article, about the same as the last drive. If you've signed up but haven't yet copy-edited any articles, every bit helps; if you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late. Join us!
  • Progress report: We're almost on track to meet our targets for the drive. Great work, guys. We have reduced our target group of articles—August, September, and October 2011—by about 44%, and the overall backlog has been reduced by 58 articles so far, to around 2600 articles. The biggest difference between this drive and the previous one is a stronger focus on large articles, so total word counts are still comparable.
  • Don't forget about the Copy Edit of the Month contests! Voting for the August contest has been extended through the end of the month. You don't have to make a submission to vote!

Page Curation newsletter - closing up!

Hey all :).

We're (very shortly) closing down this development cycle for Page Curation. It's genuinely been a pleasure to talk with you all and build software that is so close to my own heart, and also so effective. The current backlog is 9 days, and I've neverseen it that low before.

However! Closing up shop does not mean not making any improvements. First-off, this is your last chance to give us a poke about unresolved bugs or report new ones on the talkpage. If something's going wrong, we want to know about it :). Second, we'll hopefully be taking another pass over the software next year. If you've got ideas for features Page Curation doesn't currently have, stick themhere.

Again, it's been an honour. Thanks :). Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 12:29, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

This is not a newsletter

This is just a tribute.

Anyway. You're getting this note because you've participated in discussion and/or asked for updates to either theArticle Feedback Tool or Page Curation. This isn't about either of those things, I'm afraid ;p. We've recently started working on yet another project: Echo, a notifications system to augment the watchlist. There's not much information at the moment, because we're still working out the scope and the concepts, but if you're interested in further updates you can sign up here.

In addition, we'll be holding an office hours session at21:00 UTC on Wednesday, 14 November in #wikimedia-office - hope to see you all there :). I appreciate it's an annoying time for non-Europeans: if you're interested in chatting about the project but can't make it, give me a shout and I can set up another session if there's enough interest in one particular timezone or a skype call if there isn't.

  • Participation: Out of 31 people signed up for this drive so far, 22 have copy-edited at least one article. If you've signed up but haven't yet copy-edited any articles, every bit helps; if you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late.Join us!
  • Progress report: We're on track to meet our targets for the drive. We have reduced our target group of articles—November and December 2011—by over 50%, and 34 of the the 56 requests made in September and October this year have already been fulfilled. However, the rate of tagging for copy edit has increased, and this month we are just keeping the size of the backlog stable. So, all you copy editors, please do come along and help us!
  • The September 2012 Copy Edit of the Month Contest was won by Baffle gab1978 for his copy edit of Expulsion of the Acadians. Runner up was Gareth Griffith-Jones for his edit of I Could Fall in Love. Congratulations to both.
  • The October 2012 Copy Edit of the Month Contest is in the discussion and voting stage until midnight November 30 (UTC). You don't have to make a submission to vote!
  • November 2012 Copy Edit of the Month Contest is in the submissions stage until midnight November 30 (UTC), when discussion and voting begin.
  • Seasonal oversight: We had a slight fall from grace in the title of our last newletter, which mentioned the season in the northern hemisphere and thus got it wrong for the southern. Fortunately an observant GOCE member was ready to spring into action to advise us. Thanks! In future we'll stay meteorologically neutral.

Progress report: We achieved our primary goal of clearing November and December 2011 from the backlog. For the first time since the drives began, the backlog consists only of articles tagged in the current year. The total backlog at the end of the month was 2690 articles, down from 8323 when we started out over two years ago. We completed all 56 requests outstanding before November 2012 as well as eight of those made in November.

Copy Edit of the Month: Voting is now over for the October 2012 competition, and prizes have been issued. The November 2012 contest is closed for submissions and open for voting. TheDecember 2012 contest is now open for submissions. Everyone is welcome to submit entries and to vote.
