Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Tomostethus multicinctus, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cocoon. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Personal attacks[edit]

SL93, sorry, but I consider those comments at Wikipedia talk:Did you know personal attacks, and they certainly are disruptive since they distract from the discussion. You may find plenty of room to disagree with TRM but questioning his credentials is not OK. Thank you, Drmies (talk) 22:12, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

I honestly wasn't trying to, but I can't make people believe me. SL93 (talk) 22:13, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
It should be OK to me though. Many people in real life even don't believe me or go as far as to insult me and treat me like a freak. As someone with Asperger's, I should honestly just get used to it. SL93 (talk) 22:19, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
Well, I don't know if you were trying or not, but calling him an idiot and saying ... well I won't repeat what you said. This has nothing to do with treating someone like a freak; if you didn't intend to insult him, that's great, but the words themselves were insulting. Note that I am telling you this as a fellow editor, not slamming a template down or suggest a block. Thank you, Drmies (talk) 22:27, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
I called Floquenbeam an idiot after he/she called me one. SL93 (talk) 22:28, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
Right--you insulted two editors. If you like I can tell Floq what you think of his comment--but if you claim that TRM hasn't created content this last decade, you can expect some backlash. Drmies (talk) 22:33, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
I thought all I insulted was that editor after being called an idiot. I would rather you not talk to Floq about it because I don't feel like being called names again. SL93 (talk) 22:38, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

Aiming for FA with something...[edit]

Mainpaging is fun - I have done it a few times. One gets a feel for how much content there is and the ease of getting it to FA-hood. Kingsley, Iowa I feel is a little scant but FA status might be achievable with some work. For instance, Puddletown I just reviewed for another editor, and he was able to find out a bit more stuff so it makes for a more detailed well-rounded article. Anyway, might be a time for Peer Review or maybe try get a few more GAs done and then choose one to punt to FAC. Just sayin' Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 11:15, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

New Page Review - Newsletter No.4[edit]

Hello SL93,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Since rolling out the right in November, just 6 months ago, we now have 662 reviewers, but the backlog is still mysteriously growing fast. If every reviewer did just 55 reviews, the 22,000 backlog would be gone, in a flash, schwoop, just like that!

But do remember: Rather than speed, quality and depth of patrolling and the use of correct CSD criteria are essential to good reviewing. Do not over-tag. Make use of the message feature to let the creator know about your maintenance tags. See the tutorial again HERE. Get help HERE.

A cupcake for you![edit]

Choco-Nut Bake with Meringue Top cropped.jpg Here's a cupcake just for you. I noticed on your user page about having A.S, which my brother and I also suffer from. It can be a bit panicking at times, but we have found ways to work around it. I appreciate what you did with the AfD, and that a mistake may have occurred. But there is nothing to worry about, mistakes easily happen. Chin up and smile ,my friend! Wes Wolf Talk 03:33, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

RE: DaCast[edit]

Is it possible for me to see what changes there are in the article as compared to the version that was deleted? After all, I only nominated the original article for AfD in the English Wikipedia after having nominated the Spanish version, which had been translated from the English version, for the same reasons (promotional content and the presence of several single-purpose accounts). As an admin in the Spanish Wikipedia, I can review the content of the (now deleted) Spanish version of the article, and it's pretty much the same as the current English version, which seems to have been created by a fresh new single-purpose account. Sabbut (talk) 19:03, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

00:34:35, 13 June 2017 review of submission by NRRyder[edit]


I was hoping for a clarification on the largely unsourced nature of this article. In the introduction I have included many relevant resources to both foundational material and modern results. In the introduction I also mention that the meat of the article is sourced from a recent article which provides an elementary proof of the desired result. For this reason I do not include references in the body of the article (since it all comes from the one reference in the beginning).

I was hoping you could clarify if my introduction needs more references or if I should keep re-referencing the main article I pull the proof sketch from.

Thanks for your time!

I understand what you're saying. I went ahead and accepted the AFC submission, but I tagged it as uncategorized because I'm not sure what the proper Wikipedia categories would be. SL93 (talk) 00:52, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Hospital de San Carlos[edit]

You mentioned at my Talk page, during Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hospital de San Carlos, that you had found sources to support a Hospital de San Carlos article about the one in Spain.

Recent reviews[edit]

I've noticed you've actually been missing several G11 and G12 cases at AfC recently (some of them clear cut spam as "Our company", "We", etc.), so remember it's important that but to especially state the need to comply with our COI policies. I always take the time to fully read each Draft based on this or even quicker if it's instantly G11 or G12. Let me know if you have questions or need help, SwisterTwister talk 03:25, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

I don't really miss them. I just choose to deny it based on one criteria and there is no way to check multiple at once. SL93 (talk) 03:29, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
As for DaCast, I don't believe it's blatantly spam. SL93 (talk) 03:32, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
  • I wasn't concerned with DaCast as although it's still promotional, the NYT is the best source so there's that. The relevant Drafts are Draft:Achilles the K9, Draft:Contobox, Draft:NOVA Employment, Draft:Brayola, Draft:Ever Widening Circles and Draft:Xplor which were either both G11 and G12 from the company website (Checking for copypaste found it to be sometimes either half of the page or similar) or clear G11 if not copyvio. SwisterTwister talk 03:58, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
    • I guess I can leave a comment about every single issue that I find, but I thought it wasn't a big deal if it was actually denied and not put into article space. SL93 (talk) 04:00, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
      • Actually, still looking in, I noticed St. Peter's Church, CNI was not only G11 but also G12 from their website. SwisterTwister talk 17:10, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to read my submission. I was curious as to which changes I could make before resubmitting. Similar companies in the industry have wiki pages (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Control4), which I looked to for guidance in avoiding coming across as an advertisement. 

Thank you,

Request on 17:18:01, 21 June 2017 for assistance on AfC submission by Aidandiprima[edit]


Hi there SL93, you declined my submission for Philip J. Miller's article, found here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Philip_J._Miller

I understand why it was declined (a lot of the sources are not independent). I have made some changes to focus more heavily on 2 pages that I believe are independent (FACS and CastleConnolly). Could you look this over and see if this is an improvement on what was there before? I got some help from the live chat channel who mentioned that my NYU webpage source, crunchbase, and his website were not independent sources, and that I needed more credible outside sources.

I have also taken out a lot of information that wasn't pertinent and that I couldn't find an independent source for.

I have added in a handful of external links to newspaper, magazine, and website articles where Miller is mentioned. Do these help to add to his notability?

Please let me know if this looks better and/or will be enough for submission. If not, I would appreciate any guidance on what could be changed.

Thank you, Aidan

Hi I have some serious reservations about the notability of this page. For me it fails WP:NORG and notably WPORGDEPTH; It was created by a SPA user that has created a walled garden around it with about a dozen associated pages almost all of which fail WP:NMUSIC and WP:GNG

I have tried to adjust the tone and content to remove any hint of advertisement. I'm writing you now to ask if the new version looks and feels better to you. The problem I'm having is that it's a young company and there are not a lot of articles written about it or the founders or the people who work for it.

We will have to disagree on that. There is no requirement to nominate the articles for deletion for new page reviewing so you are clearly in the wrong. SL93 (talk) 15:38, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

COI editing at RL360°[edit]

This is a courtesy message to confirm the article you curated has been annotated as COI, where the main contributors are two employees. I found this around June, and I've messaged the talk page of most recent contributor at User talk:NigelDanzelman. I am only an occasional contributor and not yet refreshed my memory fully of the background and articles concerning the originator Karin Jam or sent any message. Also pinging for info SwisterTwister.

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 16,991 pages. We have worked hard to decrease from over 22,000, but more hard work is needed! Please consider reviewing even just a few pages a a day.

Technology update:

  • Rentier has created a NPP browser in WMF Labs that allows you to search new unreviewed pages using keywords and categories.

General project update:

  • The Wikimedia Foundation Community Tech team is working with the community to implement the autoconfirmed article creation trial. The trial is currently set to start on 7 September 2017, pending final approval of the technical features.
  • Please remember to focus on the quality of review: correct tagging of articles and not tagbombing are important. Searching for potential copyright violations is also important, and it can be aided by Earwig's Copyvio Detector, which can be added to your toolbar for ease of use with this user script.

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 14304 pages. We have worked hard to decrease from over 22,000, but more hard work is needed! Please consider reviewing even just a few pages a day.
  • Currently there are 532 pages in the backlog that were created by non-autoconfirmed users before WP:ACTRIAL. The NPP project is undertaking a drive to clear these pages from the backlog before they hit the 90 day Google index point. Please consider reviewing a few today!

Technology update:

  • The Wikimedia Foundation is currently working on creating a new filter for page curation that will allow new page patrollers to filter by extended confirmed status. For more information see: T175225

General project update:

  • On 14 September 2017 the English Wikipedia began the autoconfirmed article creation trial. For a six month period, creation of articles in the mainspace of the English Wikipedia will be restricted to users with autoconfirmed status. New users who attempt article creation will now be redirected to a newly designed landing page.
  • Before clicking on a reference or external link while reviewing a page, please be careful that the site looks trustworthy. If you have a question about the safety of clicking on a link, it is better not to click on it.

Hello SL93, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 12713 pages. Please consider reviewing even just a few pages each day! If everyone helps out, it will really put a dent in the backlog.
  • Currently the backlog stretches back to March and some pages in the backlog have passed the 90 day Google index point. Please consider reviewing some of them!

Outreach and Invitations:

  • If you know other editors with a good understanding of Wikipedia policy, invite them to join NPP by dropping the invitation template on their talk page with: {{subst:NPR invite}}. Adding more qualified reviewers will help with keeping the backlog manageable.

New Year New Page Review Drive

  • A backlog drive is planned for the start of the year, beginning on January 1st and running until the end of the month. Unique prizes will be given in tiers for both the total number of reviews made, as well as the longest 'streak' maintained.
  • Note: quality reviewing is extremely important, please do not sacrifice quality for quantity.

General project update:

  • ACTRIAL has resulted in a significant increase in the quality of new submissions, with noticeably fewer CSD, PROD, and BLPPROD candidates in the new page feed. However, the majority of the backlog still dates back to before ACTRIAL started, so consider reviewing articles from the middle or back of the backlog.
  • The NPP Browser can help you quickly find articles with topics that you prefer to review from within the backlog.
  • To keep up with the latest conversation on New Pages Patrol or to ask questions, you can go to Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Reviewers and add it to your watchlist.

Announcing the NPP New Year Backlog Drive!

We have done amazing work so far in December to reduce the New Pages Feed backlog by over 3000 articles! Now is the time to capitalise on our momentum and help eliminate the backlog!

The backlog drive will begin on January 1st and run until January 29th. Prize tiers and other info can be found HERE.

Awards will be given in tiers in two categories:

  • The total number of reviews completed for the month.
  • The minimum weekly total maintained for all four weeks of the backlog drive.

NOTE: It is extremely important that we focus on quality reviewing. Despite our goal of reducing the backlog as much as possible, please do not rush while reviewing.

Orphaned non-free image File:The Brainwashing of My Dad.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:The Brainwashing of My Dad.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 18:30, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

Nintex page[edit]

Hey there -- I'm working for an agency on behalf of Nintex to post a page on their behalf. As one of the Wiki users who declined it back in June, I was wondering if I would be able to send you the current draft so you can vet it for any potential problem areas. The issue last time was that the page read as overly promotional and lacking notability. The new version corrects for both of those. Let me know if you'd be able to review. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:246:1:BB40:38D1:57AF:49C:A184 (talk) 03:35, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

New Page Review Newsletter No.10[edit]

Hello SL93, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

ACTRIAL:

  • ACTRIAL's six month experiment restricting new page creation to (auto)confirmed users ended on 14 March. As expected, a greatly increased number of unsuitable articles and candidates for deletion are showing up in the feed again, and the backlog has since increased already by ~30%. Please consider reviewing a few extra articles each day.

Paid editing

  • Now that ACTRIAL is inoperative pending discussion, please be sure to look for tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary.

Subject-specific notability guidelines

Nominate competent users for Autopatrolled

  • While patrolling articles, if you find an editor that is particularly competent at creating quality new articles, and that user has created more than 25 articles (rather than stubs), consider nominating them for the 'Autopatrolled' user right HERE.

News

  • The next issue Wikipedia's newspaper The Signpost has now been published after a long delay. There are some articles in it, including ACTRIAL wrap-up that will be of special interest to New Page Reviewers. Don't hesitate to contribute to the comments sections.

General help[edit]

Hi, I am coming under constant "deletion" attack for articles that are about a major issue in reliability engineering. I started out with one editor stating the article was too technical, so I changed it down. Then another claiming it is too original, and I proved it is not, and another claiming it is not notable, and also had to show them that this subject is a major one. I did realize that the way I posted the article was the main issue, so I changed it and created a new page. This new one was then attacked for not being encyclopedic.

Frustration is an understatement: No matter what you do someone will have an opinion. I don't mind that, I do mind the opinion involving immediate deletion. Don't people give a chance to anyone here? IS this another Facebook? I have a subject that is not yet covered by Wikipedia, its preventative maintenance optimization, which is a relatively old subject and is used by millions of companies world wide, and is a complete sector of reliability and industrial engineering. There is a lot of information on preventative and planned maintenance engineering, and what I feel is that a lot of editors do not know what they are editing. Its like asking a 6 year old to edit an article on neuro-science. If the editor does not understand the subject they should move on or ask someone that does understand it to deal with it.

My bottom line is this; can you help me with editing my first articles and subjects. Have you got tips? Pointers? etc. All my articles will be subjects not companies or people.Gina Kano (talk) 02:24, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.11 25 May 2018[edit]

Hello SL93, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

ACTRIAL:

  • WP:ACREQ has been implemented. The flow at the feed has dropped back to the levels during the trial. However, the backlog is on the rise again so please consider reviewing a few extra articles each day; a backlog approaching 5,000 is still far too high. An effort is also needed to ensure that older unsuitable older pages at the back of the queue do not get automatically indexed for Google.

Deletion tags

  • Do bear in mind that articles in the feed showing the trash can icon may have been tagged by inexperienced or non NPR rights holders. They require your further verification.

Backlog drive:

  • A backlog drive will take place from 10 through 20 June. Check out our talk page at WT:NPR for more details. NOTE: It is extremely important that we focus on quality reviewing. Despite our goal of reducing the backlog as much as possible, please do not rush while reviewing.

Editathons

  • There will be a large increase in the number of editathons in June. 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.

Paid editing - new policy

  • Now that ACTRIAL is ACREQ, please be sure to look for tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary. There is a new global WMF policy that requires paid editors to connect to their adverts.

Subject-specific notability guidelines

  • The box at the right contains each of the subject-specific notability guidelines, please review any that are relevant BEFORE nominating an article for deletion.
  • Reviewers are requested to familiarise themselves with the new version of the notability guidelines for organisations and companies.

Not English

  • A common issue: Pages not in English or poor, unattributed machine translations should not reside in main space even if they are stubs. Please ensure you are familiar with WP:NPPNE. Check in Google for the language and content, tag as required, then move to draft if they do have potential.

News

  • Development is underway by the WMF on upgrades to the New Pages Feed, in particular ORES features that will help to identify COPYVIOs, and more granular options for selecting articles to review.
  • The next issue of The Signpost has been published. The newspaper is one of the best ways to stay up to date with news and new developments. between our newsletters.

Hello SL93, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

We can see the light at the end of the tunnel: there are currently 2900 unreviewed articles, and 4000 unreviewed redirects.

Announcing the Backlog Elimination Drive!

  • As a final push, we have decided to run a backlog elimination drive from the 20th to the 30th of June.
  • Reviewers who review at least 50 articles or redirects will receive a Special Edition NPP Barnstar: Special Edition New Page Patroller's Barnstar. Those who review 100, 250, 500, or 1000 pages will also receive tiered awards: 100 review coin, 250 review coin, 500 review coin, 1000 review certificate.
  • Please do not be hasty, take your time and fully review each page. It is extremely important that we focus on quality reviewing.

NPR Newsletter No.12 30 July 2018[edit]

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

Hello SL93, 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
  • 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.

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

Hello SL93, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Other
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).

Orphaned non-free image File:Batman- Year One Blu-Ray.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Batman- Year One Blu-Ray.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 02:23, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

Since you took part in the original AfD, please note Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Nizamani (2nd nomination). I have informed the other participant in that original discussion. - Sitush (talk) 14:32, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.14 21 October 2018[edit]

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

Hello SL93, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

Backlog

As of 21 October 2018, there are 3650 unreviewed articles and the backlog now stretches back 51 days.

Community Wishlist Proposal
Project updates
  • ORES predictions are now built-in to the feed. These automatically predict the class of an article as well as whether it may be spam, vandalism, or an attack page, and can be filtered by these criteria now allowing reviewers to better target articles that they prefer to review.
  • There are now tools being tested to automatically detect copyright violations in the feed. This detector may not be accurate all the time, though, so it shouldn't be relied on 100% and will only start working on new revisions to pages, not older pages in the backlog.

File:Once In A Lifetime Play.jpg[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. See User:RonBot for info on how to not get these messages.

DYK for Deccan Chargers in 2009[edit]

Hi. Thanks for reviewing Template:Did you know nominations/Deccan Chargers in 2009 but I didn't understand the current status of the nomination. It was not completely promoted and also now other editors can't see in Template talk:Did you know because it was already reviewed. Can you please provide me some info on what is the current status and do I need to do anything? Thanks. Sagavaj (talk) 20:16, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

I can see the hook at Template talk:Did you know/Approved. I don't know why I can't see if on the regular page. SL93 (talk) 22:12, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
Can you also suggest on the further steps to be taken? Thanks. Sagavaj (talk) 23:30, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
There are no further steps for the reviewer or the nominator. All that’s left is for someone to take it from the approved hook page and promote it to a prep area. It can take awhile becuse of the DYK backlog. SL93 (talk) 02:01, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Article you moved from sportsflashes to sports flashes should be undone[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Sports_Flashes&diff=868124185&oldid=868123896&diffmode=source

you have moved the above article from sportsflashes to sports flashes, but i have checked on the media channel page where it is mentioned as single word everywhere. Appu bhatnagar (talk) 12:09, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

I moved it because of how I saw it referred to in the news articles. SL93 (talk) 12:18, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
