"Women are everywhere"[edit]

Hi Ruby 2010. I'm an editor (not very active till now) of the Italian Wikipedia, where the gender gap is a real issue. I'm trying to participate to an IEG with the project "Women are everywhere". You will find the draft at this link https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IEG/Women_are_everywhere It would be great if you could have a look at it. I need any kind of suggestion or advice to improve it. Support or endorsement would be fantastic. Many thanks, --Kenzia (talk) 17:00, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Princess Charlotte of Prussia[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Princess Charlotte of Prussia you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of J Milburn -- J Milburn (talk) 16:01, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Just a "procedural" issue; did the article fail the other recent GA review? If so, should a "fail" template have been added to the article talk page, or am I missing something? Josh Milburn (talk) 17:41, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
The review was never finished. The reviewer (Sotakeit) hasn't edited since 10 March and never returned to complete the review, so I posted on the GAN talkpage for advice (see Wikipedia talk:Good article nominations#Talk:Princess Charlotte of Prussia/GA1). If I should follow some additional steps to make this clearer, let me know. Thanks! Ruby 2010/2013 17:49, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Ruby2010, those are the standard steps we take when a review has been abandoned after having been started, and we need to get it back into the pool of nominations so a new reviewer can find it: use the existing GA nominee template, up the page parameter by one and empty the "status" parameter. You did exactly what you should have done. (If the review is opened but not started, we'll delete the review page itself and leave the page parameter intact, but in this case there had been progress so we leave the prior review there so the new reviewer can refer to it if they wish.) Josh Milburn, since the initial review was never completed, a fail template is not appropriate. I'm not sure how the article history deals with reviewers who disppear... BlueMoonset (talk) 18:15, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
Interesting. My worry was precisely about the article history template; it would be misleading to say that mine was the "first" review. I would be inclined to say that a review either "passes" or "does not pass [i.e., fails]", meaning that the first review would count as a "fail" whether or not the reviewer ever closed it. (I'll occasionally "close" a review of my own without feeling that I've "failed" the article- on one occasion, an edit war erupted, and so I "closed" the review despite not wanting to say that I had "failed" the article.) Josh Milburn (talk) 20:06, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
Hmmm... perhaps a new review status could be created, such as "Incomplete"? That said, this is probably too rare a situation to make a whole new status (most abandoned reviews usually have a person step in or are just deleted). So on the page history template, maybe we just leave GA1 off of it? Ruby 2010/2013 16:09, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
I'm not sure of the benefit of that. The article history template would list the article as "not promoted", which is accurate- it wasn't! That does not imply that the article (was) "failed". Anyway, it's probably not the biggest issue... Josh Milburn (talk) 09:05, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm not too concerned about it either. Maybe if it comes up more often, someone can eventually think of a solution. Ruby 2010/2013 14:51, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
