Transhumanist's Canada coverage chart[edit]

Thanks![edit]

Glad to see someone appreciates my photography contributions to the encyclopedia. I look out for things that haven't been photographed at all or were not photographed properly whenever I visit new places. In this case, I knew I would be going up the CN Tower so I focused on Toronto-based landmarks, noticed that Corus hadn't been photographed yet, and was careful to take lots of pictures of it when I was up there. This was back when I owned a prosumer camera with an amazing 22x zoom lens. Unfortunately it got an aberration on the right corner somehow. The aberration was noticeable only at 1x or 2x zoom but that means it messes up most regular photos, so I turned in the camera for recycling and upgraded to my first real SLR after the Toronto visit. --Coolcaesar (talk) 04:55, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre[edit]

Hello PKT,

I am from the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, currently updating our production history page. I noticed you had disambiguated a couple of links on our page, and would like to thank you for your efforts. Our main focus right now is in checking links, cleaning up formats, and ensuring proper attributions to the playwrights and creators are being given. Of particular interest is ensuring our page meets the Wikipedia standards and guidelines, as well as the standards for other theatre centre production histories throughout Canada. Given your experience in this area of Wikipedia, any advice or information that you could provide would be greatly appreciated, and help facilitate our mission to improve the article.

Thank-you.

Pontus Carlsson[edit]

Hi PKT. You unlinked the chess club Sollentuna SK. Why do you think that the club is not notable? They've been winning the Swedish Chess Championship 6 times (1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2006 and 2007). Regards, --Gereon K. (talk) 17:04, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Hello Gereon K. - is there an article for Sollentuna SK? In Wikipedia, that's the first question. The second question is whether or not it's likely that an article will be created and will meet notability standards, and I doubt that a chess club would do so. It is more likely that the club's players have articles in Wikipedia than the club will have. PKT(alk) 19:36, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
Red links have the purpose of inviting editors to write articles. en.wikipedia has 13 articles about chess clubs (Category:Chess clubs). Why should a club that has won the national championship 6 times not be notable? There are more than 1,000 articles about football clubs, several hundred baseball teams and so forth. --Gereon K. (talk) 19:43, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
Gereon K.; In my humble opinion, chess clubs don't generally have the cachet of football clubs, baseball teams (or hockey teams, for that matter). Regardless, you're free to go ahead and start the article for Sollentuna SK. Or, simply revert my edit if you feel strongly enough about it. PKT(alk) 19:58, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Hello everyone, welcome to the June 2016 GOCE newsletter. It's been a few months since we sent one out; we hope y'all haven't forgotten about the Guild! Your coordinators have been busy behind the scenes as usual, though real life has a habit of reducing our personal wiki-time. The May backlog reduction drive, the usual coordinating tasks and preparations for the June election are keeping us on our toes!

May drive: Thanks to everyone who participated in last month's record-setting backlog reduction drive. Of the 29 people who signed up, 16 copyedited at least one article, 197 copyedits were recorded on the drive page, and the copyedit backlog fell below 1,500 for the first time! Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

June Blitz: this one-week copy-editing blitz will occur from 12 June through 18 June; the themes will be video games and Asian geography.

Coordinator elections: It's election time again; how quickly they seem to roll around! Nominations for the next tranche of Guild coordinators, who will serve a six-month term that begins at 00:01 UTC on 1 July and ends at 23:59 UTC on 31 December, opens at 00:01 UTC on 1 June and closes at 23:59 UTC on 15 June. Voting takes place between 00:01 UTC on 16 June and 23:59 UTC on 30 June. If you'd like to assist behind the scenes, please consider stepping forward; self-nominations are welcomed and encouraged. All Wikipedia editors in good standing are eligible; remember it's your Guild, and it doesn't run itself!

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Miniapolis and Baffle gab1978.

Geelong College[edit]

Hi PKT

I linked M.A. Buntine to his Wikipedia bio at Arnold Buntine but you reversed it. Was that a mistake? You might like to reverse your edit so that Dr Martyn Arnold Buntine (1898-1975), who was Principal of the Geelong College from 1946 to early 1960, is wiki linked.

Thanks Castlemate (talk) 00:22, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Actually, the link I saw was to simply Arnold, not Arnold Buntine. I'll leave it to you to repair. PKT(alk) 01:02, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Ghayl Habban[edit]

"Ghayl Habban" is a name that I frequently saw in literature about Yemen without ever finding an accurate explanation of it in English (I found German and Arabic explanations, but no good English explanations). I tried to make people a favor and I wrote what may be the first accurate explanation in English. I left the Arabic names of the villages because they are unvocalized and it is not possible to transliterate them, but providing unvocalized names is better than nothing. --HD86 (talk) 19:58, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Hello everyone, and welcome to the September 2016 GOCE newsletter.

>>> Sign up for the September Drive, already in progress! <<<

July Drive: The July drive was a roaring success. We set out to remove April, May, and June 2015 from our backlog (our 149 oldest articles), and by 23 July, we were done with those months. We added July 2015 (66 articles) and copy-edited 37 of those. We also handled all of the remaining Requests from June 2016. Well done! Overall, we recorded copy edits to 240 articles by 20 editors, reducing our total backlog to 13 months and 1,656 articles, the second-lowest month-end total ever.

August Blitz: this one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 21 through 27 August; the theme was sports-related articles in honor of the 2016 Summer Olympics. Of the eight editors who signed up, five editors removed 11 articles from the backlog. A quiet blitz – everyone must be on vacation. Barnstars and rollover totals are located here. Thanks to all editors who took part.

New 10,000 Challenge for Canada[edit]

Hi, Wikipedia:WikiProject Canada/The 10,000 Challenge is up and running based on Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge for the UK which has currently produced over 2300 article improvements and creations. If you'd like to see large scale quality improvements happening for Canada like The Africa Destubathon, which has produced over 1600 articles in 5 weeks, sign up on the page. The idea will be an ongoing national editathon/challenge for Canada but fuelled by a contest such as The North America Destubathon to really get articles on every province and subject mass improved. I would like some support from Canadian wikipedians here to get the Challenge off to a start with some articles to make doing a Destubathon worthwhile!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the December 2016 GOCE newsletter. We had an October newsletter all set to go, but it looks like we never pushed the button to deliver it, so this one contains a few months of updates. We have been busy and successful!

Coordinator elections for the first half of 2017: Nominations are open for election of Coordinators for the first half of 2017. Please visit the election page to nominate yourself or another editor, and then return after December 15 to vote. Thanks for participating!

September Drive: The September drive was fruitful. We set out to remove July through October 2015 from our backlog (an ambitious 269 articles), and by the end of the month, we had cut that pile of oldest articles to just 83. We reduced our overall backlog by 97 articles, even with new copyedit tags being added to articles every day. We also handled 75% of the remaining Requests from August 2016. Overall, 19 editors recorded copy edits to 233 articles (over 378,000 words).

October Blitz: this one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 16 through 22 October; the theme was Requests, since the backlog was getting a bit long. Of the 16 editors who signed up, 10 editors completed 29 requests. Barnstars and rollover totals are located here. Thanks to all editors who took part.

November Drive: The November drive was a record-breaker! We set out to remove September through December 2015 from our backlog (239 articles), and by the end of the month, we had cut that pile of old articles to just 66, eliminating the two oldest months! We reduced our overall backlog by 523 articles, to a new record low of 1,414 articles, even with new tags being added to articles every day, which means we removed copy-editing tags from over 800 articles. We also handled all of the remaining Requests from October 2016. Officially, 14 editors recorded copy edits to 200 articles (over 312,000 words), but over 600 articles, usually quick fixes and short articles, were not recorded on the drive page.

Housekeeping note: we do not send a newsletter before every drive or blitz. To have a better chance of knowing when the next event will start, add the GOCE's message box to your Watchlist.

Sortname[edit]

Thanks for your edits to {{sortname}} entries on List of Fellows of the Australian Academy of Science. Although two or three are very useful, most of them don't seem to have made any difference.
Now, I freely admit I may be missing something here, so if you could explain to me why I should not have changed the ones I have changed, I would be very grateful. Meantime, Merry Xmas! Pdfpdf (talk) 13:31, 18 December 2016 (UTC)

I guess the issue is that there are articles for a few of the Fellows, but not many. Let's use David Black as an example - there are several people by that name for whom there are articles, but not the chemist who's a Fellow of the AAS. When David Black is a blue link, a user might follow the link to a disambiguation page where there is no information about the chemist, so the link's of no use. Changing the link to David Black (chemist) tells people that there isn't an article, and it might prompt somebody to create one. PKT(alk) 14:32, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. I agree with what you say about changing entries like {{sortname|david|black}} to entries like {{sortname|david|black|dab=chemist}}, but you've kinda missed my point that in many other examples of your edits you've done something similar to changing entries like {{sortname|david|black}} to entries like {{sortname|david|black|david black}}, and my point is that changing entries like that achieves nothing. No big deal - just trying to clarify what I was trying to say to you. Cheers, Pdfpdf (talk) 10:56, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi PKT. Thank you for adding coordinates to the Tsawwassen Mills article. It would be great if you could add coordinates to the infobox of the Telus Garden article. I tried using the tool from WMF Labs, but was a couple of blocks off the correct location. Thank you! Daylen (talk) 21:10, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Done, but there's a problem with the article infobox. It says the building's at Robson and Seymour, but the map and the building's website both indicate that it's at West Georgia and Richards. I used coordinates from the latter - the article should be updated to match. PKT(alk) 21:58, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello everyone, and welcome to the February 2017 GOCE newsletter. The Guild has been busy since the last time your coordinators sent out a newsletter!

December blitz: This one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 11 through 17 December; the themes were Requests and eliminating the November 2015 backlog. Of the 14 editors who signed up, nine editors completed 29 articles. Barnstars and rollover totals are located here. Thanks to all who took part.

January drive: The January drive was a great success. We set out to remove December 2015 and January and February 2016 from our backlog (195 articles), and by 22 January we had cleared those and had to add a third month (March 2016). At the end of the month we had almost cleared out that last month as well, for a total of 180 old articles removed from the backlog! We reduced our overall backlog by 337 articles, to a low of 1,465 articles, our second-lowest month-end total ever. We also handled all of the remaining requests from December 2016. Officially, 19 editors recorded 337 copy edits (over 679,000 words).

February blitz: The one-week February blitz, focusing on the remaining March 2016 backlog and January 2017 requests, ran from 12 to 18 February. Seven editors reduced the total in those two backlog segments from 32 to 10 articles, leaving us in good shape going in to the March drive.

Coordinator elections for the first half of 2017: In December, coordinators for the first half of 2017 were elected. Jonesey95 stepped aside as lead coordinator, remaining as coordinator and allowing Miniapolis to be the lead, and Tdslk and Corinne returned as coordinators. Thanks to all who participated!

Speaking of coordinators, congratulations to Jonesey95 on their well-deserved induction into the Guild of Copy Editors Hall of Fame. The plaque reads: "For dedicated service as lead coordinator (2014, 1 July – 31 December 2015 and all of 2016) and coordinator (1 January – 30 June 2015 and 1 January – 30 June 2017); exceptional template-creation work (considerably streamlining project administration), and their emphasis on keeping the GOCE a drama-free zone."

Housekeeping note: We do not send a newsletter before every drive or blitz. To have a better chance of knowing when the next event will start, add the GOCE's message box to your watchlist.

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators: Miniapolis, Jonesey95, Corinne and Tdslk.

Communities Project, Canada, problem[edit]

Good afternoon, PKT. You had given me some useful tips at the Community project Talk page WP:Canadian communities. Would you agree to take a look at the lead for another one? West Montrose, Ontario.

I have been working to improve many articles about small towns and cities in Southern Ontario, Canada including West Montrose, Ontario. When I first got involved (March 29) there was not a single citation. I added new content and added citations. Suddenly, we have a long, ongoing argument at the Talk page about the very short lead. Because the Talk content is so extensive, and hence confusing, it's tough to get anyone from the Feedback Service involved to try to cut through all that and help us get a Consensus.

The only real issues (as I see them) are:

1. Does this community have Old Order Mennonites who drive horse and buggies. (That content has been in the article since 2007 and I did not change it. I just added citations.) Very recently however, this became a huge item of contention.

2. Is West Montrose, Ontario just a small core with a bridge and a few houses or is it a more extensive area. (The citations confirm that this rural farming region with a few small villages has many Old Order Mennonites but because West Montrose is tiny, they do not specifically discuss this community.)

3. There were also debates as to what is, or is not, a reliable source, although I believe we have a consensus (though definitely not unanimous!) as to which are reliable sources.

The actual content of the lead is very short but the Talk section goes on and on and on with debates. (Admittedly, some of those are my posts.) Cheers! Peter K Burian (talk) 18:32, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

Why did you request a speedy deletion of my article on the BMW B57 engine?[edit]

Speedy deletion converted to PROD: Batcore[edit]

Hello PKT. I am just letting you know that I have converted the speedy deletion tag that you placed on Batcore to a proposed deletion tag, because I do not believe CSD applies to the page in question. Thank you. Adam9007 (talk) 17:01, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

Quick question out of curiosity[edit]

Hi PKT,

Thanks for this edit. I saw it come by on my watchlist. However, it also triggered my curiosity - why did you change "[[Colombia|Colombian]]" to "[[Colombia]]n"? What's bad about the previous situation? Thanks for explaining, maybe I'm just not aware of something. effeietsanders 21:45, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Hello @effietsanders - There's really nothing *bad* about the older piped link, but WikiPedia's preference is to avoid piped links if possible. Please see Wikipedia:NOPIPEDLINK for a few more details. Thanks for your question! ......... PKT(alk) 12:59, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

Refrain...[edit]

Caution Hi {{subst:BASEPAGENAME}}. Please stop patrolling articles now – your patrolling does not appear to be in accordance with the instructions at New Page Patrol. Specifically, in your patrol of Visorhead you tagged it with WP:BLPPROD which was not at all suitable.It is not a biography.. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me on my talk page. ~~~~

That's a matter of opinion - according to what was posted, Visorhead was an alias for two people who did some travelling to several countries on motorcycles. I would have tagged it for speedy deletion, but wasn't sure that db-person was appropriate (they apparently did something semi-notable); however the article certainly has no references so I used BLP prod instead, anticipating that other editors would notice and change it to a speedy deletion if they thought it deserved it. I will continue to patrol newpages from time to time, as I have done in the past. Thanks for your note, PKT(alk) 17:50, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

Deletion of Page[edit]

Hi PK, I created a page for my friend as I thought he had earned it. Why has it been deleted? I am confused by this situation. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vineadar (talkcontribs) 08:51, 25 July 2017 (UTC)
