Thats my point exactly, its not that hard to add references instead of just deleting the injuries and "being rude about it". That's all YOU had to do about it just find the references and as far as my "deletion" of the stuff i would have added references but there really arnt any except for ONE. So yea you could be nice about it as well instead of trying to be a "jerk" back about it. Dw122339 (talk) 17:08, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

I wasn't rude about it. They had no references, and referencing an injury or disappearance (which could be kayfabe) is a lot different than referencing the existence of a person, like Andy Shepherd, on the roster. WP:PW/RS has a lot of references you can use to reference articles with, so you have options there. If injuries are so easy to reference, I don't understand why no one uses proper references and actually does it. It's been going for years on Wikipedia, since I joined back in 2005, and not much has changed since. It doesn't seem like people will take the time to reference injuries/disappearances, so we have to remove it. — Moe Epsilon 17:13, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
If you have been around for that long and its been going on for that long, then why not actually be the first to step up to the plate and start referencing things. Injuries are actually easy to reference since WWE announces injuries and surgeries and what not. People tend to get lazy with wiki thinking that it would be perfectly fine to just add injuries and other things when no one ever comes along and bitches about it not being referenced so they dont actually put it with it. Look I'm not blaming you for anything except not taking time to actually add references and I'm guilt of that sometimes as well we all are but you kinda are doing a double standard here deleting stuff and bitching cuz someone one add references to injuries. Its not as easy to find references to people being signed when they are behind the scenes and are a nobody. You managed to get what one out of 6 or 7? Dw122339 (talk) 17:29, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
I'm not saying that you should have been able to reference them all (you can't sometimes), but the person you removed had their own article and a reference easily available to grab and use for what you needed to. You seemed so focused on just blanking anything not referenced that you missed that one entirely. Besides the other announcer (who is brand new to WWE), they probably won't be referenced. Not everyone is easily referenced and if we can't find a decent reference, they should be removed. Injuries are sometimes announced, and sometimes they aren't, and dirtsheets can't be reliably used for Wikipedia. Regardless, it's ingrained in Wikipedia culture that "anyone can edit" and any little thing that happens on TV will be edited to articles. The reason it can't be changed is because new injuries/changes happen all the time like a revolving door and editors may or may not take the time to fix it. I am not here 24/7 and I don't have time to babysit articles — I don't own them. I have to rely on other editors who are making the changes to do it themselves. Every once in a while I check in and remove stuff like I did, because otherwise editors will think it is okay to do. Anyways, if you can find references for injuries, just re-insert them as you see fit. Just check WP:PW/RS to see if it meets the criteria of being reliable before you post it and it should be fine. — Moe Epsilon 17:51, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.12 30 July 2018[edit]

Chart of the New Pages Patrol backlog for the past 6 months. (Purge)

Hello Moe Epsilon, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

June backlog drive

Overall the June backlog drive was a success, reducing the last 3,000 or so to below 500. However, as expected, 90% of the patrolling was done by less than 10% of reviewers.
Since the drive closed, the backlog has begun to rise sharply again and is back up to nearly 1,400 already. Please help reduce this total and keep it from raising further by reviewing some articles each day.

New technology, new rules
  • New features are shortly going to be added to the Special:NewPagesFeed which include a list of drafts for review, OTRS flags for COPYVIO, and more granular filter preferences. More details can be found at this page.
  • Probationary permissions: Now that PERM has been configured to allow expiry dates to all minor user rights, new NPR flag holders may sometimes be limited in the first instance to 6 months during which their work will be assessed for both quality and quantity of their reviews. This will allow admins to accord the right in borderline cases rather than make a flat out rejection.
  • Current reviewers who have had the flag for longer than 6 months but have not used the permissions since they were granted will have the flag removed, but may still request to have it granted again in the future, subject to the same probationary period, if they wish to become an active reviewer.
  • Editathons will continue through August. Please be gentle with new pages that obviously come from good faith participants, especially articles from developing economies and ones about female subjects. Consider using the 'move to draft' tool rather than bluntly tagging articles that may have potential but which cannot yet reside in mainspace.
The Signpost
  • The next issue of the monthly magazine will be out soon. The newspaper is an excellent way to stay up to date with news and new developments between our newsletters. If you have special messages to be published, or if you would like to submit an article (one about NPR perhaps?), don't hesitate to contact the editorial team here.

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

Hello Moe Epsilon, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).

NPR Newsletter No.14 21 October 2018[edit]

Chart of the New Pages Patrol backlog for the past 6 months.

Hello Moe Epsilon, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!


As of 21 October 2018, there are 3650 unreviewed articles and the backlog now stretches back 51 days.

Community Wishlist Proposal
Project updates
  • ORES predictions are now built-in to the feed. These automatically predict the class of an article as well as whether it may be spam, vandalism, or an attack page, and can be filtered by these criteria now allowing reviewers to better target articles that they prefer to review.
  • There are now tools being tested to automatically detect copyright violations in the feed. This detector may not be accurate all the time, though, so it shouldn't be relied on 100% and will only start working on new revisions to pages, not older pages in the backlog.

Contesting speedy[edit]

Just curios why you are contesting [1] and [2]. Both have already been to AfD and were deleted, and now recreated. - Galatz גאליץשיחה Talk 17:32, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Because consensus can change, and the last consensus was formed between two editors which includes yourself. Since then, Dawkins and Ford have won a championship and been on NXT for half a year. AFD can determine if that is enough now. — Moe Epsilon 17:51, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
