SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. We appreciate that you have signed up to receive suggestions regularly; your contributions make Wikipedia better — thanks for helping!
If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please let us know on SuggestBot's talk page. Regards from Nettrom (talk), SuggestBot's caretaker. -- SuggestBot (talk) 23:40, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
The Editing team is asking for your help with VisualEditor. I am contacting you because you were one of the very first testers of VisualEditor, back in 2012 or early 2013. Please tell them what they need to change to make VisualEditor work better for you. The team has a list of top-priority problems, but they also want to hear about small problems. These problems may make editing less fun, take too much of your time, or be as annoying as a paper cut. The Editing team wants to hear about and try to fix these small things, too.
More information (including a translateable list of the questions) is posted on wiki at mw:VisualEditor/Survey 2015. If you have questions, or prefer to respond on-wiki, then please leave a message on the survey's talk page.
Idea for the GoToTop script
Hi. I've been using User:Numbermaniac/goToTop.js for a little while, and I find it useful. But do you think it would improve it to have a "▼ Go to bottom" button when at the top? This would help me on long talk pages. Eman235/talk 19:14, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
- I didn't realise people were finding it useful! Thanks for the idea, I'll try and add it in. -- numbermaniac (talk) 04:00, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
- @Eman235: I kind of did it. It works, except it doesn't disappear when you're at the bottom of a page. If you want to test it, you can add importScript('User:Numbermaniac/goToBottom.js'), and it should appear at the bottom right (rather than the bottom left, since Go to top is already there). Thanks! -- numbermaniac (talk) 04:04, 10 June 2016 (UTC)
- That works very well, other than the bug. Thanks!
- Maybe you should try reversing the "if" and "else" statements—
ifthe page is scrolled to the bottom,
$topButton.css('bottom', '-30px'); else $topButton.css('bottom', '4px');. (Does that make any sense at all, or am I just crazy?) Eman235/talk 23:57, 10 June 2016 (UTC)
- The idea is that, if your current scroll position is less than the height of the document minus the height of the footer, you're most likely not at the bottom. Otherwise, you probably are. I tried reversing it as you suggested, didn't work. I've found a possible solution, I'm going to try it now. -- numbermaniac (talk) 11:02, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
- Right, so that function doesn't do what I thought it'd do. It's late now, I'll be back tomorrow. :) -- numbermaniac (talk) 11:12, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability 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, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Happy New Year, Numbermaniac
WikiCup 2016: Game On!
We are about to enter the second week of the 2016 WikiCup. The most recent player to sign up brings the current total to 101 contestants. Signups close on 5 February. If you’re interested, you can join this year's WikiCup here.
We are aware that in some areas the scoring bot’s numbers are a little bit off (i.e., overly generous) and are working to have that corrected as soon as possible.--MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:07, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
Hello- Your GA review submission for Talk:IPhone_6/GA1 has been removed from the scoreboard as it is far too short and/or hardly adds any information beyond the basic template. If you have any questions please let me know.--Godot13 (talk) 20:28, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
That's it, the first round is done, sign-ups are closed and we're into round 2. Forty-seven competitors move into this round (a bit shy of the expected 64), and we are roughly broken into eight groups of six. The top two of each group will go through to round 3, and then the top scoring 16 "wildcards" across all groups.
Twenty-two Good Articles were submitted, including three by Cyclonebiskit (submissions), and two each by MPJ-DK (submissions), Hurricanehink (submissions), 12george1 (submissions), and Cas Liber (submissions). Twenty-one Featured Pictures were claimed, including 17 by Adam Cuerden (submissions) (the Round 1 high scorer). Thirty-one contestants saw their DYKs appear on the main page, with a commanding lead (28) by Cwmhiraeth (submissions). Twenty-nine participants conducted GA reviews with J Milburn (submissions) completing nine.
If you are concerned that your nomination will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email.

Thanks to everyone for participating, and good luck to those moving into round 2.

Along with getting the year wrong in the newsletter that went out earlier this week, we did not mention (as the bot did not report) that Cas Liber (submissions) claimed the first Featured Article Persoonia terminalis of the 2016 Wikicup.

Wuzi of Han (Spring and Autumn)
- @Tahc: I only edited that article to fix a redirect, so I don't know much about the subject. You might be better off contacting the author of the article. Thanks. -- numbermaniac (talk) 04:20, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
Round 2 is over and 35 competitors have moved on to Round 3.
Round 2 saw three FAs (two by Cas Liber (submissions) and one by Montanabw (submissions)), four Featured Lists (with three by Calvin999 (submissions)), and 53 Good Articles (six by Worm That Turned (submissions) and five each by Hurricanehink (submissions), Cwmhiraeth (submissions), and MPJ-DK (submissions)). Eleven Featured Pictures were promoted (six by Adam Cuerden (submissions) and five by Godot13 (submissions)). One Featured Portal, Featured Topic and Good Topic were also promoted. The DYK base point total was 1,135. Cwmhiraeth (submissions) scored 265 base points, while The C of E (submissions) and MPJ-DK (submissions) each scored 150 base points. Eleven ITN were promoted and 131 Good Article Reviews were conducted with MPJ-DK (submissions) completing a staggering 61 reviews. Two contestants, Cwmhiraeth (submissions) and Cas Liber (submissions), broke the 700 point mark for Round 2.
