dead links at Stinson Leonard Street, now at Stinson LLP[edit]

Hello,

When you find and tag a dead link in an article such as Stinson Leonard Street (another user has moved the article to Stinson LLP), could you please ask InternetArchiveBot to try to fix the dead link? Just go to the article's history page and click "Fix dead links" or submit several pages with dead links by using the interface at https://tools.wmflabs.org/iabot/index.php?page=runbotqueue

I noticed that the article was at AfD, so I submitted it to InternetArchiveBot, and the bot found archived backups of several several broken links. You can see the changes it made at https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=894917442&diffmode=source

Regards, Eastmain (talkcontribs) 22:30, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, I somehow had never noticed the "Fix dead links" in article history. I actually thought tagging the dead link summoned the bot magically. Having access to those backups will help in assessing the article (although most of them were not independent sources, so wouldn't (on their own) contribute to notability). ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 13:12, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

WikiCup 2019 May newsletter[edit]

The second round of the 2019 WikiCup has now finished. Contestants needed to scored 32 points to advance into round 3. Our top four scorers in round 2 all scored over 400 points and were:

  • Scotland Cas Liber (1210), our winner in 2016, with two featured articles and three DYKs. He also made good use of the bonus points available, more than doubling his score by choosing appropriate articles to work on.
  • Wales Kosack (750), last year's runner up, with an FA, a GA, two FLs, and five DYKs.
  • Pirate Flag of Henry Every.svg Adam Cuerden (480), a WikiCup veteran, with 16 featured pictures, mostly restorations.
  • Kingdom of Prussia Zwerg Nase (461), a seasoned competitor, with a FA, a GA and an ITN item.

Other notable performances were put in by Chicago Barkeep49 with six GAs, United States Ceranthor, England Lee Vilenski, and Saskatchewan Canada Hky, each with seven GARs, and Denmark MPJ-DK with a seven item GT.

So far contestants have achieved nine featured articles between them and a splendid 80 good articles. Commendably, 227 GARs have been completed during the course of the 2019 WikiCup, so the backlog of articles awaiting GA review has been reduced as a result of contestants' activities. The judges are pleased with the thorough GARs that are being performed, and have hardly had to reject any. As we enter the third round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 2 but before the start of round 3 can be claimed in round 3. Remember too that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article nominations, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

InfoCepts[edit]

Hi. I’m sorry you were forced to delete my page, InfoCepts. I will attempt to recreate it taking into consideration all that you mentioned. I realize the page was deleted, but that was more than a decade ago. The company has grown a lot within this time. Again, I would like to stress that my intent is purely to inform interested parties about the company from a trusted source. I will endeavor to reflect the same in the future. Thank you. AshVaidya

AshVaidya, if you want me to restore the deleted material to draft space so you can work on it, I can do that for you. Just be aware that it needs a LOT of work, and it may be better to start from scratch. ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 15:40, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Changing a company's old Logo for a New version[edit]

ONUnicorn, thank you for your help. I noticed another editor jumped in and made matters worse. I'm a graphic designer and appreciate the fact that Wikipedia supports the SVG image file format. I would like to upload a sanctioned and usable version of the company logo, not a screen grab. I think I disallowed that change (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Help_desk&oldid=prev&diff=895358078&diffmode=source). Can you help me upload an SVG version? I already ran it thru the w3 SVG validator. How do I proceed? I will be reading your articles this weekend you included on my talk page {Colegagreg (talk) 19:02, 3 May 2019 (UTC)}

Colegagreg, is the version you want to upload anywhere I can download it? If you can post a link I can upload it for you, or you can use WP:Files for upload, as I mentioned on the helpdesk. However if you want to do it yourself you'll need to wait until you are autoconfirmed, which happens automatically when your account is 4 days old and has made 10 edits. ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 19:26, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
ONUnicorn, Here is a link to the original file. The link will expire in 24 hours. Thank you for the help. I can extend EXP date.

I am hoping to find someone to complete the Guayaki page. Yes it's a nice product, but the Social mission and it the commitment to redefining business is way more interesting.
When you say 10 edits, are you referring to 10 edits to articles on Wikipedia, or do all these exchanges I have had with editors as yourself count?

Colegagreg (talk) 19:38, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Colegagreg I have uploaded the new logo and added it to the infobox. As far as the 10 edits go, all the exchanges you have had on the helpdesk and with editors such as myself do count. And as for adding information about the company's social mission and "commitment to redefining business", have those things received press coverage? If so, go ahead and put sources (articles about those things) on the talk page. ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 23:20, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Administrator account security (Correction to Arbcom 2019 special circular)[edit]

ArbCom would like to apologise and correct our previous mass message in light of the response from the community.

Since November 2018, six administrator accounts have been compromised and temporarily desysopped. In an effort to help improve account security, our intention was to remind administrators of existing policies on account security — that they are required to "have strong passwords and follow appropriate personal security practices." We have updated our procedures to ensure that we enforce these policies more strictly in the future. The policies themselves have not changed. In particular, two-factor authentication remains an optional means of adding extra security to your account. The choice not to enable 2FA will not be considered when deciding to restore sysop privileges to administrator accounts that were compromised.

We are sorry for the wording of our previous message, which did not accurately convey this, and deeply regret the tone in which it was delivered.

For the Arbitration Committee, -Cameron11598 21:04, 4 May 2019 (UTC)


Administrators' newsletter – May 2019[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (April 2019).

Guideline and policy news

Technical news

  • XTools Admin Stats, a tool to list admins by administrative actions, has been revamped to support more types of log entries such as AbuseFilter changes. Two additional tools have been integrated into it as well: Steward Stats and Patroller Stats.

Arbitration

  • In response to the continuing compromise of administrator accounts, the Arbitration Committee passed a motion amending the procedures for return of permissions (diff). In such cases, the committee will review all available information to determine whether the administrator followed "appropriate personal security practices" before restoring permissions; administrators found failing to have adequately done so will not be resysopped automatically. All current administrators have been notified of this change.
  • Following a formal ratification process, the arbitration policy has been amended (diff). Specifically, the two-thirds majority required to remove or suspend an arbitrator now excludes (1) the arbitrator facing suspension or removal, and (2) any inactive arbitrator who does not respond within 30 days to attempts to solicit their feedback on the resolution through all known methods of communication.

AfD question[edit]

Thank you for your advice. The organization sure seems like it is low key and I have not found any articles written specifically about them. I found one that was published in The International Journal of Risk and Safety in Medicine in 1992 about their history but it was written by HAI. Would any of the following sites satisfy that question?

  1. EU regulatory body on their registration
  2. An article by WHO talking about their collaboration with HAI
  3. EU lobby checking website
  4. There are 71 references to the org in this book A Healthy Business?: World Health and the Pharmaceutical Industry I have ordered a copy on Amazon by expedited shipping but I don't know if it will arrive in time as it is a second hand book here in the US. Is there a process to get more time before the page is deleted?--Akrasia25 (talk) 14:24, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
Akrasia25 You could leave a note in the AFD saying that you have ordered that book, and request that the article be moved to draft space for incubation. If so, you should probably format that comment by putting *'''Move to draft''' at the start of the comment, then explain that you understand the problems with the references currently in the article but feel notability can be demonstrated and that you are waiting on books to arrive from Amazon. I would be willing to support a motion to move the article to draft, but I'm not at this time willing to advocate for it to be kept in mainspace.  
The problem with the EU lobby checking website is that as disclosed on their disclaimer page, the information on that website is extracted from two sources, and "all information on the official EU register is provided by registrants themselves, making it the sole responsibility of those organisations. It is widely recognised that many entries in the official register are inaccurate, incomplete or otherwise misleading." This is also the problem with the transparency register itself, which as noted is the source of the information on the lobby checking website. Don't misunderstand - these sources are reliable for some things, just not for establishing notability. ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 14:50, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.18[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello ONUnicorn,

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

Niharika Kohli, a product manager for the growth team, announced that work is underway in implementing improvements to New Page Patrol as part of the 2019 Community Wishlist and suggests all who are interested watch the project page on meta. Two requested improvements have already been completed. These are:

  • Allow filtering by no citations in page curation
  • Not having CSD and PRODs automatically marked as reviewed, reflecting current consensus among reviewers and current Twinkle functionality.
Reliable Sources for NPP

Rosguill has been compiling a list of reliable sources across countries and industries that can be used by new page patrollers to help judge whether an article topic is notable or not. At this point further discussion is needed about if and how this list should be used. Please consider joining the discussion about how this potentially valuable resource should be developed and used.

Backlog drive coming soon

Look for information on the an upcoming backlog drive in our next newsletter. If you'd like to help plan this drive, join in the discussion on the New Page Patrol talk page.

Deleting redirects[edit]

Can you please delete Peter and the Wolf (1995 film) and Peter and the Wold (1995 film)? Thanks! NickBlamp (talk) 20:32, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

 Done ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 20:38, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Some other things[edit]

  • Please check the Stowaways on the Ark and The Magic Voyage articles I've edited. In their "home video" section, I've put releases for a lot of territories. Is whatever I've put there necessary, or I need to only wirte about the better-known ones (UK, France etc.)???
  • Can I put the conductor's name on "artist" on the album infobox and on "music by" on the film infobox?
  • If a film spawns a video game, and there's not much info about it, can we put its contents (infobox, reception etc.) on the article for the film, instead of making a new page?

Thanks a lot, I won't bother you again! :) NickBlamp (talk) 21:59, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
