WikiCup 2018[edit]

So the 2017 WikiCup has come to an end. Congratulations to the winner, to the other finalists and to all those who took part. 177 contestants signed up, more than usual, but not all of them submitted entries in the first round. Were editors attracted by the cash prizes offered for the first time this year, or were these irrelevant? Do the rules and scoring need changing for the 2018 WikiCup? If you have a view on these or other matters, why not join in the WikiCup discussion about next year's contest?

New Page Reviewing[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
Hello, Philroc.

I've seen you editing recently and you seem knowledgeable about Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
Would you please consider becoming a New Page Reviewer? Reviewing/patrolling a page doesn't take much time but it requires a good understanding of Wikipedia policies and guidelines; currently Wikipedia needs experienced users at this task. (After gaining the flag, patrolling is not mandatory. One can do it at their convenience). But kindly read the tutorial before making your decision. Thanks. — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 10:36, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

I notice that you have the "administrator someday" userbox. Reviewing new pages is one of the best ways to develop experience needed to successfully wield the mop. — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 10:36, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

List of Metro Systems[edit]

Hi Philroc, I just read your message on my talk page about List of metro systems: you did the right thing reverting my last edit, since the gargantuan removal of content wasn't actually neither a desired action nor some sort of experiment. I was merely editing a record (São Paulo Metro, as my edit summary points out) in the list section, but something went wrong while the "save changes" operation was under way, due a sudden restart of my browser, and therefore things turn out completely screwed up. Again, thanks a lot for your help! 93.57.255.93 (talk) 19:04, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

How is this libel?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pete_Hoekstra

It's national news here in the netherlands https://nos.nl/artikel/2211303-vs-ambassadeur-weigert-uitleg-over-bewering-in-brand-gestoken-politici.html — Preceding unsigned comment added by 143.179.8.145 (talk) 14:13, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

@143.179.8.145: Your edit to the linked article made it appear that Hoekstra was lying in an interview. Wikipedia maintains a neutral point of view on political issues such as this and does not attempt to accuse certain politicians of lying. PhilrocMy contribs 14:19, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Libel in Pete Hoekstra wiki?![edit]

https://nos.nl/artikel/2211303-vs-ambassadeur-weigert-uitleg-over-bewering-in-brand-gestoken-politici.html

It's in the Dutch National News. See the video. He's refusing to answer questions about his 'inaccurate statement'. How is this libel? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 143.179.8.145 (talk) 14:20, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
