Article review - awaiting your reponse[edit]

Dear Rosguill, thank you for your review of List of fact-finding reports on human rights in North Korea. I have written a more detailed message to you on the talk page of the article. I look forward to your reply there. Thank you! (talk) user:Al83tito 8:25, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

Dear Rosguill, thank you for your kind response. I left you a follow-up message recently, in the same talk page of that article. Could you please take a look when you have a moment? It should only take a moment or two. Thank you. (talk) user:Al83tito 5:45, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
(to be more precise, please see there my message dated Nov 1st. Thank you!) (talk) user:Al83tito 5:47, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Would Appreciate Your Insight[edit]

Rosguill, you recently deleted an article I wrote about an entertainment personality/industry innovator named Jeff Beacher. Of course I'm bummed to see it deleted, and frankly, I do not understand why you did it; but I am here to learn and grow and to become a welcomed and valued member of the wiki community. The article I wrote, IMO, was well sourced, honest and seemed to be in-line with similar articles about people like him on this platform. Further, the article was receiving positive support and improvements from several other established wiki editors. Regardless, you clearly felt I did something wrong, and I respect that. I would, however, genuinely appreciate some help/tips to be able to republish it with your suggestions. Hoping to hear from you, and, sincerely, I appreciate the opportunity to get better at this! :-) (side note - I see you're into translations - have you checked out the Pilot ear buds from Waverly? They auto translate langauges into your ear, like real life Babel Fish!) DarthBuffet (talk) 20:28, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

@DarthBuffet: thanks for following up on this. Unfortunately I don't remember the specific details of that article. Looking in the deletion logs (Special:Logs), it looks like it was deleted for WP:G11, unambiguous advertising. What this essentially means is that the article 1) was insufficiently neutral in tone and phrasing and 2) largely cited sources that are obviously non-independent or otherwise unreliable. Of these two criteria, the latter is much more important, so let's focus on that. Could you provide me with links to sources you used so that I can reevaluate them? signed, Rosguill talk 22:51, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
@Rosguill: For real, thank you for responding as you have. I am just checking in quickly today, but I will respond more completely tomorrow. Really appreciate your willingness to help me. Back soon! :-) DarthBuffet (talk) 22:46, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
@Rosguill: - I am just sitting down now and responding to a few of the editors who have been helping me with this. One pointed me to the editor who executed the deletion named Anthony Appleyard. It appears that it was, as you accurately predicted, the tone and phrasing of my article that encouraged AA to delete it. However, I sincerely appreciate your willingness to review some of the references I chose (from sources like Entrepreneur Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, BET Online, Forbes, The LA Times, Rolling Stone Magazine, Las Vegas Magazine, New York Times, etc). What is the proper way for me to share some of these links with you? DarthBuffet (talk) 18:53, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
DarthBuffet, If you can just paste links here that would be fine. You can also make them prettier by adding a single bracket before and after the url, so [http://www.google.com] becomes [1]. If we had been having this discussion while the article still existed then it would have been more appropriate to use its talk page, but that's moot. Although, given AA's comments, was a version of the article restored? If so we should continue the conversation there. signed, Rosguill talk 20:22, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
@Rosguill: Yeah, I was really happy to see he restored my article. I just logged in and saw his reply to me where he said he deleted it because he felt it read like an advertisement (which was in no way my intention); but I was hoping he would have given me some insight so, as I've expressed, I can get better at this and avoid this situation with future articles (I want to keep contributing and editors like you and a few others have made me feel welcomed and supported!). Not sure what I should do now as the article has been restored. I did notice a code that is appearing at the top of the article that I'd love to hide/remove just to make my article look cleaner. Do you think that would be okay? DarthBuffet (talk) 17:07, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
DarthBuffet, I've removed the text you're talking about––that text is the markup for a speedy deletion tag, wrapped in <nowiki> tags so that it doesn't actually add a live tag (I think it's just default when you restore an article). At any rate, looking through the article, the biggest issue is the promotional language. You should avoid phrases like He is credited as creating over $100 million in value for his clients, which read very promotionally. You should also generally avoid listing clients (with the occasional exception of people notable for fashion or other fields where one's clients really are the primary source of notability). It would also be good to cut sentences like As a media personality, Jeff Beacher has been featured on television, radio, newspapers and in magazines from the lead, which says very little about the subject while still coming off as promotional.
As for the sources, part of the problem here is that you actually may have too many sources, most of which are very trivial coverage of the subject (that is to say, it mentions the subject for a sentence or two but does not provide the significant depth necessary for sourcing an article). It's better to have 3 good sources than 20 mediocre ones. signed, Rosguill talk 17:19, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
@Rosguill: GAHHHH! This is SO HELPFUL!!! Do you think it would be cool if I went in now and followed your lead and deleted what you suggested, and slimmed down the resources? DarthBuffet (talk) 17:49, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
@Rosguill: I deleted the sentences you suggested I removed. I will go through all of the links and follow your lead and trim that down. I really appreciated your comment, "It's better to have 3 good sources than 20 mediocre ones". That is a very good lesson. I had thought the more the better. This is very very helpful and insightful.

your assistance please...[edit]

You redirected Triad International to Adnan Khashoggi, with an edit summary of "redirect to Adnan Khashoggi, company does not appear to meet notability guidelines independent of its owner (WP:ORGCRITE, WP:GNG). Consider adding Triad International related content in a new section of the article about Khashoggi".

Was this redirection discussed anywhere, before you made it? If so, could you point me to that discussion? Geo Swan (talk) 17:35, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

@Geo Swan: There wasn't a discussion, that was my unilateral decision as a new page patroller based on the sources provided in the article and the lack thereof in my attempted search online. That having been said, the source you found does appear to be a stronger indicator of the subject's notability. signed, Rosguill talk 22:58, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

File:Nilufer-yanya-miss-universe-album.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 the calculation of 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. See User:RonBot for info on how to not get these messages.

Unclear citations - some guidance appreciated[edit]

Hello Rosguill, You recently left a message regarding unclear citation styles on Margaret Doyle (announcer). Many thanks for reviewing it, but I'm puzzled. The citations were either drawn from the National Library of Australia's (NLA) newspaper citations on Trove created specifically for use of historic newspaper content on Wikipedia. The other citations (from memory) were all constructed using Wikipedia's citation template. The NLA are making some changes to their online platform, so I will follow up with them in case it's no longer compliant. But I'm at a loss to understand why citations created using Wikipedia's own template would be a problem. Any guidance would be appreciated. Coastal.culture.vulture (talk) 21:33, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

Coastal.culture.vulture, thanks for following up on this. Looking at the article right now, virtually all of the citations appear to have broken url values and are displaying error messages in addition to improperly formatted markup text. Is this not the case for you? signed, Rosguill talk 21:49, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
Rosguill, thanks for replying. When I created the page, there were no errors in either the preview or the published changes. I have a tendency to over reference, something I try to restrain, so take particular care that all is well. When I look at the page now, the majority of the links are broken and there are multiple error messages. A staff member from the National Library has been in contact and will look into it from their end if needed, but that doesn't explain why the problem is evident for citations using Wikipedia's template. As a first step, I'll have a look at my operating system, try editing using different browsers and devices to see if I can narrow it down to my own environment. Coastal.culture.vulture (talk) 09:49, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
Coastal.culture.vulture, looking at the history of the page, it seems everything was fine until Tony1 replaced a bunch of the url content with gibberish? Not sure if that was intentional, they don't look like a vandal. Anyway, just re-add the correct urls from an earlier version of the page and you should be good to go. signed, Rosguill talk 17:10, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
Rosguill, a change by another editor (how ever well meaning) would be a far simpler explanation. I'll replace the urls over the weekend, and keep a close watch on the page in the days that follow. Many thanks for your help with this. I really appreciate it :) Coastal.culture.vulture (talk) 19:34, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

Michael B. Paulkovich[edit]

You tagged the article saying "There do not appear to be enough references currently present in this article to demonstrate notability." Looks to me like all facts have accompanying citations, can you be specific as to what more it needs? I'd like to improve it if it really needs to be improved. Thanks. Gagitsel (talk) 19:04, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

Gagitsel, notability on Wikipedia is a separate concern from verifiability, although they're obviously related to an extent. While several citations have been provided in the article, they can be sorted into two different categories: 1) citations to articles that are by Paulkovich, as opposed to about Paulkovich, and 2) citations to images of articles about Paulkovich, but without sufficient information (either in the article or in the images) to clearly identify the sources and the authors of these articles. Category 1 does not contribute to notability because they are not independent of the subject, whereas Category 2 could contribute to notability, but without clearer information about the sources, it's difficult-to-impossible to assess whether these sources are reliable, and thus we cannot tell if they contribute to notability or not. signed, Rosguill talk 19:13, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
I've added citations for notability and verifiability, I'll remove the tag you added if you agree (or you can remove it if you'd like). Thanks! Gagitsel (talk) 21:50, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
Gagitsel, thank you for your attempts to provide more sources. Unfortunately, the additional sources you provided appear to suffer from the same problems as the previous ones: two are just examples of things that Paulkovich wrote, and the third is a press release, which is not a reliable source for notability. Instead of these sources, I would suggest looking for reviews of Paulkovich's books. signed, Rosguill talk 23:11, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
The reasons I added links to those articles: (1) the articles provide a brief bio of Paulkovich at the end, thus bolstering verifiability (something you asked for) and (2) the articles demonstrate that he does in fact write for the journals claimed in the WP article, further bolstering verifiability. Gagitsel (talk) 14:19, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Gagitsel, I didn't really ask for verifiability, I asked for citations demonstrating notability. Verifiability is also important, but it's not currently an issue for the article. signed, Rosguill talk 17:00, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Springhill Avenue shooting 1987[edit]

While doing some work for the New Pages Patrol, I came across Springhill Avenue shooting 1987 and I fully agree with the comments you made on that article's talk page. Would you consider an AfD to be in the offing? It seems that the article's author tried to use this not-so-notable incident to write an article on much bigger issues. Note that Springhill Ave. is only mentioned once in the text. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (Talk|Contribs) 15:51, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

Doomsdayer520, an AfD does seem appropriate at this point. Had the initial editor (or someone else interested in writing articles about the Troubles) responded to the original comment, I think we could have gone straight to rename/merge, but I don't really have the knowledge or bandwidth to do that myself so unfortunately deletion seems like the best option. signed, Rosguill talk 17:24, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi Rosguill, Thanks for establishing the redirect page. As per your request, I can contact you when I find more comprehensive information about Seehafer to expand on his biography.

Nomination for deletion Ally Prisock[edit]

Hello,

You reviewed an page of mine so I was wondering if you could help me. My page on Ally Prisock has been nominated for deletion. For the life of me I do not understand why as it is sourced and she is a professional soccer player. How do I get an article that has been flagged as Nomination for deletion to not be deleted?

Cheers

@Cetteuqap:, it looks like the reason it's being deleted is because it doesn't meet WP:NFOOTY or WP:GNG. While you've pointed out several reasons why Prisock may be an important or good player, ultimately she is still a rookie that has not actually played in a professional game (the guideline says that players need to have actually appeared in a game, just being signed to a team is not enough). Until she has actually done so (or until you can find additional coverage of her such that she meets WP:GNG), she doesn't meet notability guidelines. While it's extremely likely based on your description that she will meet the guidelines at some point in the future, that hasn't happened yet, and it is not Wikipedia's place to write about things that are likely to happen. In other words, you wrote the article WP:TOOSOON. I would suggest asking that the article be draftified or userfied–that way while it will still be removed from the live encyclopedia mainspace, you won't lose your work, and if/when she does finally play in a pro game you can publish the article. signed, Rosguill talk 16:11, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

Reviewing[edit]

Hi,

I've just been notified that the page 2019 Dutch provincial elections has been reviewed by yourself. What does it mean for the article? and what does the reviewing process consists in? I'm curious, I know, but I've added a lot of numbers on the page and I'm afraid that one of them might be wrong (though I double-checked). Kahlores (talk) 23:34, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Kahlores, you can read about the full reviewing process here, but a short overview is that reviewing is something we do for new articles and just means that the article has been checked for 1. violations of Wikipedia policies (copyright violations, WP:ATTACK pages, violations of WP:BLP, etc.) and 2. notability, i.e. verifying that the article's subject has received enough real-world coverage to justify a Wikipedia article. It does not mean that we've double checked every single claim in the article, although reviewers are generally expected to read through the article and flag it with relevant templates if there are any issues. Once an article has been reviewed, it's released to search engines for indexing (i.e. it becomes searchable). We actually have a rather long backlog right now, so if this sounds interesting to you I'd encourage you to apply!
All that having been said, I actually didn't review 2019 Dutch provincial elections, but rather the redirect you created, Dutch provincial elections, 2019. That's a much faster process, where basically we just check to make sure that the redirect isn't actively misleading or harmful and then approve it, change the target, or nominate it for deletion as appropriate. signed, Rosguill talk 02:59, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your answer. I always wondered but was afraid to ask, and didn't know where exactly the reviewing process was organized. I may apply, but elections are my only real domain expertise, so we'll see. Kahlores (talk) 12:59, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
Kahlores, for what it's worth you do learn a lot on the job. In hindsight, I was totally unqualified when I was first given NPP permissions, but now I'm comfortable reviewing new articles on most topics. signed, Rosguill talk 17:06, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Choral Synagogue (Drohobych)[edit]

Hello, some weeks ago you stated that this article lacks sufficient citations. I gave a statement about that on the relevant talk-page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Choral-Synagogue_(Drohobych)), but nobody seems to bother. Maybe you would be so kind to tell me which statement is unsourced (please read the given source before you answer).--Wanfried-Dublin (talk) 19:16, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Wanfried-Dublin, I marked it as needing more sources because the entire Architecture section has no footnotes, and 2 sources is essentially the minimum amount of sources for a page to meet notability requirements, especially if one of the sources is not available online and thus of minimal use to readers (offline sources are very much allowed, but it's nice to be able to provide online literature for readers as well). What's more, the Ukrainian language version of the article has many sources, so it didn't seem like a tall order to request additional citations.
Having read your comment on the talk page, I would just add that you shouldn't take the "Low importance" thing personally or let that get you discouraged––"low" is the default rating when assigning an article to a project, so unless I'm personally very familiar with a given subject I generally leave that as the set rating. What's more, many WikiProjects are aware of how this works, and specifically go over new articles listed as low in order to update them with a more accurate evaluation, although that may not be the case if the articles you work on are not supported by active WikiProjects. signed, Rosguill talk 20:28, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
Rosguill, thanks for your response. But what causes some problems is your statement 2 sources is essentially the minimum amount of sources for a page to meet notability requirements. You may have noticed that I work on the German wikipedia as well, and there I have created more articles on (Ukrainian) synagogues, which I would like to create in English as well. For some synagogues there is only 1 reliable source, which are the books: Heaven’s Gates. Masonry synagogues in the territories of the former Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth.' and Heaven’s Gates. Wooden synagogues in the territories of the former Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth.' by Maria and Kazimierz Piechotka. (There are 2 new books from Sergey Kravtsov about synagogues in Wolhynia that I consider to obtain too). So if I cite these well researched books and no other source (especially online sources, which might not be available at all) will more sources be required?--Wanfried-Dublin (talk) 08:07, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
Wanfried-Dublin, I think it depends on how much is actually in Heaven's Gates. The two sources thing is primarily a rule of thumb. A synagogue, and especially an old synagogue, is unlikely to be terribly controversial, so I as a new page patroller would not be overly concerned that relying on only one source would cause neutrality issues. The issue then is whether enough had actually been written in the book to establish notability. I would suggest including actual quotes from the book to demonstrate the quality and depth of coverage. I can't guarantee that such an article would make it past AfD (especially without even seeing the source or the hypothetical article), but I think it's worth a shot. signed, Rosguill talk 17:13, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
Rosguill, thanks. As these books are definitely the best source available (and in English too), I will use them for further articles (and try to include other sources from the internet where they are available in English or German).--Wanfried-Dublin (talk) 08:35, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

Hello and thanks for reviewing several redirects I created recently.

Certes, haha I was actually about to propose that myself. I'm a software engineer so while I haven't built any Wikipedia bots yet, I think I can actually do this myself once I've read through some documentation. Other examples of uncontroversial redirects include redirects to biographies with varying usage of initials and full names, redirects that vary only in their usage of diacritics, etc. signed, Rosguill talk 21:35, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
It's amazing what bots can do. Today, one even managed to appeal its block. Certes (talk) 09:59, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

Bill Maher special[edit]

I'm very confused. Did you delete the article I wrote fir Bill Maher's special?? Halfire101 (talk) 02:43, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

Halfire101, not exactly. The article's subject does not appear to meet notability guidelines for inclusion in Wikipedia. Thus, I redirected it to the article for Bill Maher, as I explained in the edit summary. You can revert this edit by clicking undo in the history, but I would caution you against doing this unless you can actually demonstrate the article's notability. Prior to my converting it to a redirect, the article had six citations. Citation #1 is HBO's hosting of the special (not independent or significant coverage), #3 is a press release published on Broadway World (not a reliable source, not independent), and #2, #4, #5, and #6 are database entries (not reliable or significant). Rotten Tomatoes often has links to significant coverage (in the critics reviews section), but in this case the only article isn't actually even a review of the piece, it's a Haaretz piece on comedy specials more broadly and doesn't have enough coverage to establish notability on its own. Examples of significant coverage would be full length reviews, or academic papers that discuss the subject. signed, Rosguill talk 02:56, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Eleni Malandrinou[edit]

Hello Rosguill. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Eleni Malandrinou, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: can easily be redirected to her daughter's article per WP:ATD-R. Thank you. SoWhy 08:00, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

Whatever I guess[edit]

In comparison the the other similar entries, I just dont understand why you chose to do that. I modeled what I wrote after the other entries for his other specials. I even purchased the special so I could watch it and document things about it.

Maybe it's my fault, but I still feel like my time as an editor for Wikipedia has been stifled and ruined by editors like you who make choices on a whim without comparisons to similar topics. Maybe instead of reverting all the work I did, you could have sent me a message or commented on it first and given me the chance to rectify whatever situation you claim is an issue. Halfire101 (talk) 23:50, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

Halfire101, the reason why was that it didn't meet notability guidelines, largely because it wasn't supported by reliable sources. I'm an editor on the new page patrol, so my main task on Wikipedia is reviewing new articles and determining whether they comply with notability guidelines (among other issues). As far as sending a message first, editing etiquette is governed by the process of Bold, Revert, Discuss (i.e. WP:BRD), which is to say that bold edits (including converting articles to redirects) are encouraged and don't require prior notice, so long as everyone is civil in discussing changes if a bold edit turns out to be controversial. Your contributions have not been deleted: if you think you can demonstrate the subject's notability, you can absolutely revert my edit and add more sources. If you'd like some time to work on the article without other editors interfering, we can also move it to Draft-space where you can work on it unmolested. That having been said, I'd suggest making sure that you're familiar with WP:GNG before spending much more time on it.
I'm also happy to answer any other questions you may have. signed, Rosguill talk 23:59, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

for putting the category template here... Given that I had the presence of mind to mention the category in the edit summary when creating it, I probably should have made it around to the conclusion that it should go in the page too... oh well, I'll try to remember next time :) —{{u|Goldenshimmer}} (they/their)|😹|✝️|John 15:12|☮️|🍂|T/C 06:03, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Jolanta Omilian[edit]

I did not agree for deletion of page of Jolanta Omilian, of course I can correct it and use her www as source of information. There is no the button button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". Can you please help me? Atomksk (talk) 20:07, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Atomksk, it appears that you were too late to argue for the article to not be deleted. According to the public logs, the article was deleted for copyright infringement and unambiguous advertising (WP:G11, WP:G12), ie the article was almost entirely copied from a copyrighted course that was itself a promotional website and not a reliable source. These are special speedy deletion criteria that are usable only for articles that are obvious violations of Wikipedia's policies, and a discussion is not required for an admin to delete the article once it has been tagged, unlike the more formal processes of proposed deletion and articles for deletion which are used for less egregious cases.
If you want the case to be reviewed and potentially have the article restored, you can start a discussion here. However, unless you can find significant coverage of the subject in multiple reliable sources that are independent of the subject, the article will likely be deleted again.
Please also be aware that Wikipedia has to take copyright violations very seriously. Unless a source specifically states that its content is free and in the public domain or released through a relevant Creative Commons license, you cannot copy text from it into a Wikipedia article. signed, Rosguill talk 20:24, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Atsme, why, it's at Afd? The flowchart says that we should mark articles as reviewed once they're up for AfD. signed, Rosguill talk 19:13, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
Apologies, Rosguill - I had a momentary memory failure. I went back & marked it reviewed, then reread this discussion. I thought consensus was to include all, not just CSD and Prods. There were strong arguments to leave all AfD articles as unreviewed. I think DGG's Support iVote explains it best (last one in the discussion). Directly under that discussion is the Implementation discussion so I asked ICPH if the fix was done. I don't know how to check for that, do you? Atsme Talk 📧 04:38, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
Atsme, no worries it happens. At any rate, the implementation discussion it seems that ICPH said it was done? But also, I don't think there was anything to change in how the script interacts with AfD. signed, Rosguill talk 04:53, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Principal Mutual Fund page[edit]

Hi Rosguill,

I have noticed that you've reviewed my Principal Mutual Fund and now its redirecting to Principal_Financial_Group.

Kindly let me know the possible reasons for the same. The Principal Mutual Fund page is a division of Principal_Financial_Group and represents Indian product offerings of the parent.

Let me know changes to improve the page.

Regards, Namrata

@K23.namrata: I actually wasn't the editor who made this change, but rather I reviewed the redirect created by another editor. That having been said, looking at the article that you've restored on that page, I agree with the decision made by the other editor to change the article of the redirect, as the article as written does not demonstrate the subject's notability. In order to demonstrate notability, you need to provide more citations to significant coverage in independent, reliable sources. In your draft, sources #1 and #3 are not significant coverage, and #2 is not independent. For more information, please see WP:ORGCRITE. signed, Rosguill talk 11:35, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Re: Speedy deletion nomination of Ren (singer)[edit]

I noticed the tag for deletion a little too late and now the page is already deleted. What can i do in this regard??Asikm03 (talk) 07:58, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Asikm03, at this point you can take it up at Wikipedia:Requests for undeletion. However, the issue with the article is that the version you wrote did not sufficiently address the issues raised as part of an earlier deletion discussion here. I would suggest that you read through the concerns raised in that discussion and make sure that you address them in any future drafts of the article that you write. signed, Rosguill talk 11:29, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Circular links[edit]

Hi. At Bull baronets, the circular redirects were in place so that, when those redirects become articles, nothing further needs to be done (as suggested at WP:SELFRED – I'm not qualified to decide the likelihood of those becoming articles, but I saw no harm in leaning towards the possibility). —[AlanM1(talk)]— 23:32, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

AlanM1, looking at WP:SELFRED, it seems to specifically recommend making such redirects only to sections or anchors in the article, which I don't believe was the case for the Bull baronet links. At any rate, I'm not particularly invested in the article so if you think it's appropriate to add them back, go ahead. signed, Rosguill talk 23:40, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.18[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Rosguill,

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.

"The page has been reviewed"[edit]

I've recently noticed I get notifications when pages I create are reviewed. Reading Wikipedia:Autopatrolled, this makes sense. However, I've also noticed that not all the pages I create get reviewed. I'm not really clear how pages are chosen to be reviewed. Are there specific namespaces that NPP tends to patrol, and ones they don't? Is there a limited number of volunteers, and pages expire from being "new" after a month?

Anyway, I'll probably be turning off these notifications, since I don't see much benefit in receiving them; I only care if a page I create has been reviewed and deleted. eπi (talk | contribs) 19:03, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

E to the Pi times i, currently, pages in the new page queue are split between redirects and articles. Due to some sloppy code, the backlog cutoff for articles is 3 months, but the cutoff for articles redirects is 1 month. Pages that miss the cutoff date are silently taken off the queue as if they had been reviewed. We only realized that there were separate cutoff dates a few weeks ago, so most redirects were not being patrolled until then.
For the last few weeks, I've taken it upon myself to review all redirects that are about to slip off the back of the queue, and we still have a fair amount of breathing room on the article queue so right now all new pages should get reviewed within three months, although we are understaffed and could use more people helping out. signed, Rosguill talk 20:18, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
By the backlog cutoff for articles is 3 months, but the cutoff for articles is 1 month, do you mean the cutoff for article redirects is 1 month?
How about templates and userspace pages then? Most of the pages I have created thus far are one of the two, though I hope to create some new articles in the future. I might be interested in helping with NPP after I get more experience with article creation. eπi (talk | contribs) 20:31, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
E to the Pi times i, oops, you're absolutely correct. Re templates and userspace, I don't think we have any review system in place for stuff outside of mainspace. You can find out more about the patrol at WP:NPP. signed, Rosguill talk 20:32, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
