Hi. Re: supposed unconstructive edit to the article Humanz -- browser autocorrect changed the word "Humanz" to "Human" when I simply applied italics to it, and I did not notice. Browser autocorrect often changes "itals" to "vitals" on me as well. I am at work and cannot disable the autocorrect. Please look at the edit intent before reverting, mistakes happen. thanks.

June 2018[edit]

Hi! Thanks for your message re. Strangelove. I checked the page for the album Music for the Masses and the song was actually released on 13 April 1987, not 2 weeks later as I had got from, so I fixed it. Sfinn85 (talk) 12:10, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Mike Nugent[edit]

Hello Rob,

My unsourced content on Mike Nugent does not have a source because I found out Mike's middle name from Mike Nugent himself. With your permission I would like to add Nugent's middle name to his Wiki page. Please let me know. Thanks!

Uebelhoer (Talk) 15:16, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Hey Uebelhoer, unfortunately as per WP:BLP all information added to biographical articles must be sourced especially with regards to living people. I imagine it shouldn't be too hard to find with a Google search. If you need help adding a source, let me know. Robvanvee 05:46, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Just reflecting on the joy of the RCA page[edit]

A change showed up on my watchlist today, and I went back to the RCA page for the first time in a while. Moving the images to the one section was masterful! So well done. Hope you're well! Julie JSFarman (talk) 02:11, 18 June 2018 (UTC)

So far so good. Glad we didn't take that bet...I would have lost :) Thanks for popping by! Robvanvee 06:35, 18 June 2018 (UTC)

Editing Snoop Dogg[edit]

About the message, you sent about me about Snoop Dogg. It said so in his personal life the same thing without a source added. How come that contribution's allowed when mine isn't? Or, have you not yet seen that?

The section you edited pertains to current relationships and the 2 of them are not currently involved, hence my reverting. Robvanvee 14:57, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

But, Nicolas Cage is no longer involved with Christina Fulton, but she's still on a similar section to the one I edited. How come that one flies by, but mine doesn't?

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Not Too Amused.ogg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Not Too Amused.ogg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator seven days after the file was tagged in accordance with section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.


ATTENTION: This is an automated, bot-generated message. This bot DID NOT nominate any file(s) for deletion; please refer to the page history of each individual file for details. Thanks, FastilyBot (talk) 01:04, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

File:Floor (album cover).jpeg[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:16, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.12 30 July 2018[edit]

Chart of the New Pages Patrol backlog for the past 6 months. (Purge)

Hello Robvanvee, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

June backlog drive

Overall the June backlog drive was a success, reducing the last 3,000 or so to below 500. However, as expected, 90% of the patrolling was done by less than 10% of reviewers.
Since the drive closed, the backlog has begun to rise sharply again and is back up to nearly 1,400 already. Please help reduce this total and keep it from raising further by reviewing some articles each day.

New technology, new rules
  • New features are shortly going to be added to the Special:NewPagesFeed which include a list of drafts for review, OTRS flags for COPYVIO, and more granular filter preferences. More details can be found at this page.
  • Probationary permissions: Now that PERM has been configured to allow expiry dates to all minor user rights, new NPR flag holders may sometimes be limited in the first instance to 6 months during which their work will be assessed for both quality and quantity of their reviews. This will allow admins to accord the right in borderline cases rather than make a flat out rejection.
  • Current reviewers who have had the flag for longer than 6 months but have not used the permissions since they were granted will have the flag removed, but may still request to have it granted again in the future, subject to the same probationary period, if they wish to become an active reviewer.
  • Editathons will continue through August. Please be gentle with new pages that obviously come from good faith participants, especially articles from developing economies and ones about female subjects. Consider using the 'move to draft' tool rather than bluntly tagging articles that may have potential but which cannot yet reside in mainspace.
The Signpost
  • The next issue of the monthly magazine will be out soon. The newspaper is an excellent way to stay up to date with news and new developments between our newsletters. If you have special messages to be published, or if you would like to submit an article (one about NPR perhaps?), don't hesitate to contact the editorial team here.

August 2018[edit]

Hello Robvanvee,

Sorry about those genre changes I made to Hellbilly Deluxe. I do have a question. When looking at the genres of other albums, I do not always see source references accompanying the genre. Does this mean that the editor did not have to site their source and where they got it from, or are they just not choosing to show it on the public page? Thanks.MetalHead4 (talk) 08:30, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi MetalHead4. Every editor should source all their edits as a general rule, however that doesn't mean many haven't slipped through over the years leading to lots of unsourced genre's. Most people have just accepted them but if you don't and it is unsourced, you may challenge it on the talk page or remove it altogether. May I suggest first reading the article from top to bottom to see that it isn't perhaps sourced in one of the sections below such as "style" or "critical reception". Happy editing.
