Van Kampen diagram drawing[edit]

Hi Nsk92, I just wanted to ask you how you drew the van Kampen diagram here [1] and if I could do it in a similar way. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:37, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

It was a while ago, but as I remember, I drew that figure using Xfig. At the time my office computer had a Linux operating system and running Xfig was not a problem. It is also possible to install Xfig on a Mac or a Windows computer, but that requires a bit of extra work. compared to Linux-based operating systems. Nsk92 (talk) 21:22, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Autopatrolled granted[edit]

Wikipedia Autopatrolled.svg

Hi Nsk92, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the "autopatrolled" permission to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the patroller right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled. Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions. Happy editing! ~ Rob13Talk 06:44, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

OK, thanks! Nsk92 (talk) 11:55, 30 August 2016 (UTC)


Hi Nsk92, categories of the article Vugar Ismailov are mainly Azerbaijani-related. If any category is not adequate, I can remove it. Ismailov manages the Proceedings of the Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics, NAS of Azerbaijan. This is the only journal of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences, which is indexed in Web of Science. He also serves as an editor of leading mathematics journals published in Azerbaijan (such as Azerbaijan Journal of Mathematics, etc.). He is also the Azerbaijani scientist with the lowest Erdos number. Thank you for reading. Vmash (talk) 09:24, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

Look, whomever you are: These arguments should have been brought up in the AfD, before the rain of sockpuppetry and other disruption came down. Incidentally, having Erdos number 2 is not an indicator of notability. WP:PROF explicitly says that having a small collaboration distance from a famous researcher, in particular having a small Erdos number, does not make one academically notable. However, the arguments about editorships of journals are serious and substantive arguments, and, had they been brought up in the AfD at the proper time, it is quite possible that the article might have been kept. However, now that it has been deleted, you cannot just keep re-creating it using obvious wp:sock accounts -- it will just be speedily deleted again. The correct procedure in this situation is for the User:AynuraJafarova account to wait until the expiration of the current two-week block on that account. Then, once unblocked, User:AynuraJafarova (while logged in as User:AynuraJafarova ) can place a request at WP:DRV to have the Vugar Ismailov re-created and to specifically raise new notability arguments that were not presented in the AfD, namely the arguments about journal editorships. There will be then a discussion at WP:DRV and if a consensus is obtained to allow re-creation of the article in the mainspace, then the article will be allowed to be re-created. That is the proper procedure to follow in this situation. But, if more new sock accounts try again and again re-create the article in the mainspace, not only will it keep getting speedily deleted, but the User:AynuraJafarova will be indefinitely blocked (instead of the current two weeks block).

GScholar question[edit]

Hi, I'm wondering if you could help me figure out the h-index for "Ronald Smelser", as I can see you have expertise in this area (followed here from an AfD discussion). I've been trying to do a draft for a while, and I wonder if he'd qualify under WP:PROF or WP:NAUTHOR. He is the author, with a co-author, of the The Myth of the Eastern Front. Help figuring this out would be appreciated, as Smelser apparently does not have an individual profile on GScholar. K.e.coffman (talk) 04:24, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

This is one of those cases where GScholar displayed the results in a particularly unhelpful manner:[2]. First, one needs to disregard the results related the physicist Ronald E Smelser, such items number 1 and 2 in the GScholar search. Another problem here is that for some reason after that GScholar does not display the items in the decreasing order of the citation hits, and one needs to reorder them manually. When I did that myself, for the citation hits related to Ronald Smelser you describe above, I got: 91, 49, 36, 36, 34, 28, 23, 22, 21, 21, 13, 12, 9, 9, 6,..., which gives him a GScholar h-index of 11 (if I did not miss/mix up anything). That's actually quite high for a historian. In general, for someone in the humanities, h-index is not a particularly good indicator of academic notability per WP:PROF and it is better to look at other factors, such as, for example, reviews of books that he has written, library holdings of his books, editorships of journals/books, etc. Still, to the extent you may want to invoke h-index in the context of WP:PROF, a GScholar h-index of 11 is fairly high for a historian. Nsk92 (talk) 09:04, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
Note also that according to this[3] he is a past President of the German Studies Association, which is also confirmed here[4]; that's another indicator of academic notability per WP:PROF#C6. Nsk92 (talk) 12:32, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
Great, thanks for the feedback! K.e.coffman (talk) 18:31, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

New page reviewer granted[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Nsk92. 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. If you need more help or wish to discuss the process, please join or start a thread at page reviewer talk.

  • 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. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 01:40, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

PS: A detailed summary/check list has been deliberately not made because that is then all people read and they then do not bother to read the important details. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 01:44, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Just been uploading a page pander rock duo. Having had 500 international interviews it warrants to have a page with details for people

New Page Review - newsletter[edit]

Hello Nsk92,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
Breaking the back of the backlog
We now have 367 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.

No, not particularly. I simply reviewed your new article yesterday as a part of doing NPP. Everything looked in order, for a basic stub-class article. Nsk92 (talk) 13:39, 28 November 2016 (UTC)
Ok, great. I had the email I copied above which suggested that I needed to get in touch. I guess it's just a default standard. Thanks for doing the review. HughJLF (talk) 13:54, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Weigh-in Needed from Eds with Science Background[edit]

The issue of "junk journals" has come-up in a scientist-related AfD, e.g. my latest comment. I don't think this is receiving due consideration from many of the panelists, but would appreciate a heads-up in case I'm over-emphasizing this. Thanks. Agricola44 (talk) 20:12, 11 December 2016 (UTC).

Despite its fairly high impact factor, the Bulletin of AMS is not comparable to journals like Annals of Mathematics, Inventiones and the Journal of AMS in terms of prestige. Bulletin of AMS is specifically dedicated to publishing expository/survey articles and book reviews, and does not publish original research as such. That's why BAMS has fairly high impact factor: the survey/expository articles published there are frequently used as general background references. Publishing a paper in BLMS provides a useful service to mathematical community, but it is not comparable to publishing a paper in Annals of Mathematics, Inventiones or the Journal of AMS, which only accept papers proving particularly important new mathematical results. Bauer's paper in BAMS is an expository paper on constructive mathematics. Nsk92 (talk) 14:38, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

New Page Review - newsletter No.2[edit]

Hello Nsk92,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
A HUGE backlog

We now have 367 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.


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.
