I feel like what I edited was a constructive addition and it is worthwhile to keep please reconsider your decision — Preceding unsigned comment added by Leonardo Sutton (talkcontribs) 23:55, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello Leonardo Sutton. You are welcome to make contributions to Wikipedia; however, changing the listed official website of Royal Bay Secondary School to the "American Nazi Party" is clearly inappropriate. If you are interested in contributing to Wikipedia, I invite you to check out our introduction page. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on this talk page.

Campus Mission Church (New York City): Sep 2, 2016[edit]

Thanks for your helpful and kind comments on the draft! Following your suggestion, I've added two more references (a news article and a TV news w/ a video link) and added a few other sentences as well. Hopefully this will change your mind! :-) Please let me know if the article needs to be resubmitted for a review. Thank you!! Mjoung (talk) 21:23, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

@Mjoung: Thanks! I'll take a look and let you know my thoughts. Mz7 (talk) 21:33, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Sia - Cheap Thrills page[edit]

Sorry I don't yet know how to respond to a specific topic on the talk page, so I thought I'd write you here. I saw the link about the key and it seems every other page I could find regarding sheet music for that song said the same thing. I think the information that is misleading is the chord progression of vi-IV-I-V which is a variation of I-V-vi-IV (it just starts on vi). If this is in a minor key, the progression would be i-VI-III-VII, which technically is a variation on the I-V-vi-IV progression as the article states however when following the link to the chord progression's page, there is no mention of the minor key variation of this progression. Maybe that is where an edit or addition needs to occur. There is a reason it's called music theory, it's just a theory. We can all look at the same thing and come to different conclusions. It's a beautiful thing. Ozymo (talk) 21:20, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi Ozymo, thanks contacting me. I am not well-versed in music theory at all, so I don't think I'm the best editor to evaluate your concerns. I've left a note for the members of WikiProject Music theory, which is a group of Wikipedians focused on improving Wikipedia's coverage of music theory. I've asked them to look into this issue. The Wikipedia editing process normally requires that editors provide sources that verify any information that they want to add to an article, so we would need a reliable source that specifically confirms that the song has a specific chord progression and key. However, in this case, the source presented lists the key of a sheet music of a pop song. I'm not sure how reliable it is to transcribe pop music into sheet music – would it be possible for the whole key or chord progression to change in the process?

New page reviewer granted[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Mz7. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group, allowing you to review new pages and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or in some cases, tag them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is a vital function for policing the quality of the encylopedia, if you have not already done so, you must read the new tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the various deletion criteria.

  • Be nice to new users - they are often not aware of doing anything wrong.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted - be formal and polite in your approach to them too, even if they are not.
  • Don't review a page if you are not sure what to do. Just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Remember that quality is quintessential to good patrolling. Take your time to patrol each article, there is no rush. Use the message feature and offer basic advice.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In case of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, the right can be revoked at any time by an administrator. MusikAnimal talk 05:01, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

Pending changes discussions template[edit]

I just wanted to get your opinion on the change I just made to Template:Pending changes discussions and its documentation. What do you think? Should anything be changed? Gestrid (talk) 00:34, 12 November 2016 (UTC)

@Gestrid: Looks pretty good! I don't see anything glaringly wrong with it. Standardizing placement of the shortcut box seems like an improvement to me. Thanks for the update! Face-smile.svg Mz7 (talk) 00:51, 12 November 2016 (UTC)

New Page Review needs your help[edit]

Hi Mz7,

As an AfC reviewer you're probably aware that a new user right has been created for patrolling new pages (you might even have been granted the right already, and admins have it automatically).

Since July there has been a very serious backlog at Special:NewPagesFeed of over 14,000 pages, by far the worst since 2011, and we need an all out drive to get this back down to just a few hundred that can be easily maintained in the future. Unlike AfC, these pages are already in mainspace, and the thought of what might be there is quite scary. There are also many good faith article creators who need a simple, gentle push to the Tea House or their pages converted to Draft rather than being deleted.

Although New Page Reviewing can occasionally be somewhat more challenging than AfC, the criteria for obtaining the right are roughly the same. The Page Curation tool is even easier to use than the Helper Script, so it's likely that most AfC reviewers already have more than enough knowledge for the task of New Page Review.

It is hoped that AfC reviewers will apply for this right at WP:PERM and lend a hand. You'll need to have read the page at WP:NPR and the new tutorial.

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Scale of justice 2.svg Hello, Mz7. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

If you wish to participate in the 2016 election, please review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 22:08, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

New Page Reviewer - RfC[edit]

Hi Mz7. You are invited to comment at a further discussion on the implementation of this user right to patrol and review new pages that is taking place at Wikipedia:New pages patrol/RfC on patrolling without user right. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 21:12, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

References[edit]

Remember that when adding content about health, please only use high-quality reliable sources as references. We typically use review articles, major textbooks and position statements of national or international organizations (There are several kinds of sources that discuss health: here is how the community classifies them and uses them). WP:MEDHOW walks you through editing step by step. A list of resources to help edit health content can be found here. The edit box has a built-in citation tool to easily format references based on the PMID or ISBN. We also provide style advice about the structure and content of medicine-related encyclopedia articles. The welcome page is another good place to learn about editing the encyclopedia. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a note. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 04:03, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

@Doc James: Thank you for the note. While I understand the need for secondary sources, the terminology used in the Proton-pump inhibitor article is "one suggested mechanism", so I thought it would be an improvement to the article to include a primary source – along with the secondary source – that shows such a suggestion being made. I apologize if this was misguided. Mz7 (talk) 04:17, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
Not a big deal. Just better to stick with recent high quality secondary sources.Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 04:21, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

Re World Field Archery[edit]

I got the information from the Information Centre. I have added the page number to the reference in the 1976 article. In addition every championship was listed on the World Archery Championships page with a source created by a previous user. I checked each one and added all the medallists in new articles, they were all working then but it seems that the worldarchery.org website has changed. I have found a source on their website [2] which confirms the venue in 1976 was in Sweden. I am not sure why the International Field Archery Association list different venues. Probably like so many other sports that have several governing bodys claiming world titles. Hope this helps. Racingmanager (talk) 18:09, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

@Racingmanager: Thanks, that does help! The IFAA website is a bit indeed strange. I suppose the most likely explanation is that the "International Field Archery Association" is entirely distinct from the "World Archery Federation". Mz7 (talk) 20:19, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

New Page Review - newsletter[edit]

Hello Mz7,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
Breaking the back of the backlog
We now have 282 New Page Reviewers! Most of you requested the user right to be able to do something about the huge backlog. Now it's time for action.
Mid July to 01 Oct 2016

If each reviewer does only 10 reviews a day over five days, the backlog will be down to zero 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!
Let's get that over and done with in time to relax for the holidays.

Second set of eyes

Not only are New Page Reviewers the guardians of quality of new articles, they are also in a position to ensure that pages are being correctly tagged for deletion and maintenance and that new authors are not being bitten. This is an important feature of your work. Read about it at the new Monitoring the system section in the tutorial.
