Lineisy Montero[edit]

Just a friendly heads up on Lineisy Montero. I declined the speedy because there's a good faith claim of notability (top 50 model). My edit summary said PROD or AfD would be the way to go, but after checking the sources, I'd say the Guardian and Harpers Bazaar articles would make me contest a prod. If you think the article needs to go, AfD is your route. Cheers!--Fabrictramp | talk to me 01:28, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

@Fabrictramp, thanks for the heads up. I'll probably let it stand. reddogsix (talk) 01:39, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

New Page Review - newsletter No.2[edit]

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

We now have 348 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.

Abuse

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.

Hello - Not sure why you had the Johnny Aloha page deleted. Can you please send me the deleted code from the page? The Johnny Aloha CD was released in 2010, it is distributed by an established record label, it is available on iTunes and other online music stores, and includes a duet with famous singer Corey Taylor of the band Slipknot. That seems like reason enough to keep it on Wikipedia. I'd appreciate your consideration in this matter. Thank you. Richardcheese2 (talk) 09:15, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

Richard Greene speedy deletion?[edit]

Hi Reddogsix - I'm just starting a new article tonight and I'm guessing I've done something wrong?? But the subject is someone I caught in a Ted talk he did (that's over a million views) and he's done some amazing stuff and I'd love to write the article about him - he's an author, a host of Air America radio, was an expert on a TLC show. And he's got a pretty interesting connection to Princess Di. I would love your help please to make this a welcome piece. Thank you! :-) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Akrumoftruth (talkcontribs) 03:00, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Whoops![edit]

Sorry - I misread something - I should be directing my questions to a different user. Thanks again for your insight. :-)

New Page Review - newsletter No.3[edit]

Hello Reddogsix,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Voting for coordinators has now begun HERE and will continue through/to 23:59 UTC Monday 06 March. Please be sure to vote. Any registered, confirmed editor can vote. Nominations are now closed.

Still a MASSIVE backlog

We now have 348 New Page Reviewers but despite numerous appeals for help, the backlog has NOT been significantly reduced.
If you asked for the New Page Reviewer right, please consider investing a bit of time - every little helps preventing spam and trash entering the mainspace and Google when the 'NO_INDEX' tags expire.
