Proposed deletion of CrowdRabbit[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article CrowdRabbit has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Not a valid article; basically a regurgitation of corporate PR releases couched in Wikipedia's voice. In short, fails WP:NPOV and all notability requirements.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

New Page Review - newsletter No.2[edit]

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

We now have 350 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.

A barnstar for you[edit]

Well done! 1,338 uses of the Page Curation tool. Keep up the good work! Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 20:50, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
@Kudpung: Thanks for the barnstar! Always appreciated. Meatsgains (talk) 22:19, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

Please comment on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Rocket.Chat[edit]

I'd welcome your opinion on the discussion. Thanks you. Gabriel engel (talk) 16:23, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

@Gabriel engel: I've responded to the AfD but suggest you read through WP:COI given your relationship to Rocket.Chat. Meatsgains (talk) 13:40, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, I am conscious about WP:COI so I have tried to limit my contributions to the article and discussions with only adding references and media assets that I believe were uncontroversial. Please let me know if you feel that done anything wrong and I'll be happy to undo. Gabriel engel (talk) 18:32, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

New Page Review - newsletter No.3[edit]

Hello Meatsgains,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Voting for coordinators has now begun HERE and will continue through/to 23:59 UTC Monday 06 March. Please be sure to vote. Any registered, confirmed editor can vote. Nominations are now closed.

Still a MASSIVE backlog

We now have 350 New Page Reviewers but despite numerous appeals for help, the backlog has NOT been significantly reduced.
If you asked for the New Page Reviewer right, please consider investing a bit of time - every little helps preventing spam and trash entering the mainspace and Google when the 'NO_INDEX' tags expire.

Bob Barnes[edit]

Just so you know, I just undid some edits that you did to the article Bob Barnes several years ago. I basically had to roll the article back to an earlier state, so you won't be getting an "undo" notice on your alerts. Your edit had managed to conflate the cartoonist that the article is about with another artist with a similar name, Robert Barnes. Bob died in 1970, Robert retired in 1999, so pretty clearly they are not the same guy. --Nat Gertler (talk) 03:28, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

@NatGertler: Thanks for the notification. That was years ago, sorry for the mix up there! Meatsgains (talk) 16:24, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Refs[edit]

Thank you for filling in the bare refs that I had on the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (comic book)‎ article. I appreciate it.★Trekker (talk) 15:05, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

No problem! Happy to help. Meatsgains (talk) 16:20, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
