Tech News: 2018-38[edit]

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

Hello MusikAnimal, 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.
Other
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).

A message from Abequinn14[edit]

Bot removed a protection tag from a page even though it was protected. Abequinn14 (talk) 23:24, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

I think that's because it was using {{pp}} and not {{pp-pc1}}. For {{pp}} you need the action=autoreview parameter set, apparently MusikAnimal talk 00:10, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

A message from P.FerreiraPinto[edit]

P.FerreiraPinto (talk) 14:04, 21 September 2018 (UTC) Hi MusikAnimal

According to the statistics, the page "União das Freguesias de Sameice e Santa Eulália" was brought by MusikAnimal, Kaldari, and Marcel Ruiz Forns.

Links:

Pageviews Analysis https://tools.wmflabs.org/pageviews/?project=de.wikipedia.org&platform=all-access&agent=user&range=latest-20&pages=Uni%C3%A3o_das_Freguesias_de_Sameice_e_Santa_Eul%C3%A1lia

MusikAnimal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:MusikAnimal Kaldari https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Kaldari

Marcel Ruiz Forns https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Mforns_(WMF)

Source Code: MusikAnimal/pageviews https://github.com/MusikAnimal/pageviews

My question is, can we edit this page? Once the source code will always automatically revert it to german, how can we create a PT page with the same 'name'? We simply can't have a dutch page describing a Portuguese Municipal Public Service on wikipedia...

Why my PT page and several editions are been constantly deleted (on this and other pages related)?

I am currently working to the União das Freguesias de Sameice e Santa Eulália and we are trying to solve the situation for about 2 to 3 weeks, yet 'nobody', including 'permissions-Wikipedia' is solving the issue.

Can you please fix it?

Thank you.

@P.FerreiraPinto: I believe you might be mistaken. The "brought to you by..." message is referring to the Pageviews tool itself, not the articles that may appear on it. I would try posting a message on the article talk page, or contact previous authors of the page directly. Sorry I cannot help you! MusikAnimal talk 00:22, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
