New page patrol – Survey Invitation

Hello NatGertler! The WMF is currently developing new tools to make new page patrolling much easier. Whether you have patrolled many pages or only a few, we now need to know about your experience. The survey takes only 6 minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist us in analyzing the results of the survey; the WMF will not use the information to identify you.

  • If this invitation also appears on other accounts you may have, please complete the survey once only.
  • If this has been sent to you in error and you have never patrolled new pages, please ignore it.

Please click HERE to take part.
Many thanks in advance for providing this essential feedback.

Revision of the page: Delete Skype History (software)[edit]

Re. Bob menendez[edit]

Wanted your opinion on this : I want to add headers to the controversies section and remove the recently added lead-in, specifically:

On April 1, 2015, Menendez was indicted on federal corruption charges related to favors he did for Florida ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen and gifts he received from him, including campaign donations and private flights. Melgen was charged as well. Menendez has pleaded not guilty to all charges.[1]

It was reverted once so wanted to get a second opinion before I continued.

Well, the material certainly needs to be at least broken up... but really, it may need redistribution. The essay at WP:CSECTION makes a case for avoiding "controversies" sections altogether. However, I do feel that his current situation is sufficiently of import to why people are likely to look at the article at this point that a mention in the intro is reasonable. --Nat Gertler (talk) 03:24, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

I didn't realize there was specific guidance regarding this specific kind of section. Thank you for the link and insight. Jdphenix (talk) 04:11, 4 April 2015 (UTC)


Focus on the Family[edit]

I agree marriage equality is a loaded word and should be removed. I'm not really political on these topics so it was not my intention. However, the parts on creationism, their view on sex ed, and others should stay. I am restoring WP: NPOV right now. Thanks for your thoughts.

Do not remove other editors' comments from AN/I[edit]

Please read WP:TPO. BMK (talk) 03:04, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

You may wish to read that yourself, as it points to personal attacks as something that should be removed. --Nat Gertler (talk) 03:12, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
