Brock Lesnar[edit]

Hi, can you enlighten be on this change. If he is still part of WWE, shouldn't we be using WWE.com? - Fylindfotberserk (talk) 16:25, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

@Fylindfotberserk: If we get lucky and a reliable source PWI/WON/Fightful/PWTorch actually reports a height or weight we should take them over the primary source. It is not very likely that this will happen, but if it does we should probably take them over WWE.com (since as that other user said, they do not update it very often). For all we know, they probably have not updated it since he redebuted in 2012. StaticVapor message me! 20:12, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Actually, last time I saw him wrestle, he was billed at 286 lbs. I believe WWE.com is just reproducing what's being announced in the ring. Upto 2005, he used to be billed at 295 lbs and that was also in the WWE official website. - Fylindfotberserk (talk) 20:18, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
@Fylindfotberserk: If that was a match from this year, I support it changing back to the WWE.com source. The website is not always giving what they announce in the ring though, for the record. For example, I was watching an NXT Takeover this year and they announced Velvanteen Dream as 10-20 pounds different than what is on the website. StaticVapor message me! 22:26, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

Riffraff[edit]

I am learning how to use Wikipedia so please forgive me I use voice to text to communicate due to a severe eye injury I suffered in Los Angeles..... I just want to bring to your attention that jodyhighroller AKA Riff Raff has another case of alleged sexual assault if you'd like to add that to his article just letting you know you did really well on all your other articles — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1:B193:8879:33F2:16A2:85FF:202D (talkcontribs)

@2600:1:B193:8879:33F2:16A2:85FF:202D: We should probably stay away from allegations. Anyways if anything is to be added to the article it would need citations to reliable sources. StaticVapor message me! 00:56, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

Becky Lynch[edit]

I moved Becky to Raw because WWE.com lists her on both the Raw and SD superstar page, and to balance out the pics on the WWE personnel article.

I would not have done this move if WWE.com didn't list her on both shows. I know what her bio says, but they only list her as SD Champion when she is "Becky 2 Belts", so you can't go strictly by that.

Mickie James[edit]

Hi there, I just wanted to discuss the subheadings for Mickie James's "Return to WWE" section. I will admit my edits were not great, I do believe saying "NXT appearance and storyline with Alexa Bliss" and then "Heel turn and reunion with Bliss" sounds a little redundant. I know it's a little hard because of how wacky (quite disappointing if you ask me) her recent run has been. She's basically been attached at the hip to Alexa since she came back in some form of fashion which is why I believe it should be one section. And saying "heel turn" I believe isn't necessary since she started as a heel. But I do undersrand that my "Singles Competition" subheading was not great since she hasn't done anything now that she's on SmackDown and away from Bliss. I just wanted to talk about possible ways to improve it or if it would be best to leave as is until she does something of note in the near future. Thank you. Sir Wrestler (talk)

@Sir Wrestler: The problem with your heading change was that the first and third headings were super tiny, and the middle heading took up everything else. It needs to be more balanced. I also do not like a heading that just says "NXT", it makes it seem like she actually had a run there, which she did not. It was one match according to the article. The reason heel turn is there, is because she started as heel, turned face and then at the time that section begins, she turned heel again. Also, mentioning Bliss twice is not redundant since it says "storyline with", this could mean alliance and/or feud, which it does. Then the next heading says reunion, so if your reading along it makes sense. Thanks for the message. StaticVapor message me! 19:00, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
Like I said, wasn't perfect from my end but it is what it is. I probably could've said something like teaming and feuding with Alexa Bliss since they have been with each other nonstop but it still would've been the same result. I do think there's something to fix still and maybe if more happens with her while she's on SmackDown, we can move some thing around if possible; but it's not worth losing sleep over (I already have enough things for that lol). Thanks for the discussion! Sir Wrestler (talk)

Source on Drew McIntyre[edit]

Hi Much Love as a friend, It's true, www.onlineworldofwrestling.com www.prowrestlingscoops.com and several other dirt sheets and several wrestlers and several road agents vouched for it a few weeks before he and Matt Hardy got in that brawl. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TelleyTell (talkcontribs)

@TelleyTell: Can you provide direct url to any sites that are on WP:PW/RS that support the change? We would need citations to reliable source(s). Also you have to sign your posts with ~~~~. Thanks! StaticVapor message me! 21:09, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

Hey, it's true, www.wwe.com confirmed that the day we did The story about how William Regal won The KOTR King Of The Ring tournament when Drew McIntyre threatened Teddy Long and Matt Hardy months before he, Drew McIntyre and Matt Hardy ended up being tag team champions. Trent Barretta vouched for it a few days after he, Barretta, Caylon Crofton, Curt Hawkins Zach Ryder and Bam Neeley ended up with Chavo Guerrero Vickie Guerrero and the others a few weeks before Vickie Guerrero slapped The Undertaker, forcing Undertaker to get rid of Hell's Gate, Saying ".....Hell hath no fury over a woman scorned!". TelleyTell (talk) 05:16, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

@TelleyTell: You didn't respond to what I said, re-read what I said in my last message. StaticVapor message me! 05:26, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Hey, Yes sir I did read it, and I did, www.prowrestlingscoops.com and several other websites and several wrestlers including MVP said that the night it all actually happened, www.onlineworldofwrestling.com confirmed that the day we started hinting at going 40 men , How we went 40 men in that Royal Rumble, when the only reason we went 40 men in that Royal Rumble, was because of that night when Kevin Nash that December, A month before, Tweeted Mr. McMahon himself and asked Mr. McMahon for a guaranteed spot for him, Kevin Nash and Booker T in The Royal Rumble, and they, Matt Hardy, Drew McIntyre, William Regal, Sheamus, Big Show, Rey Mysterio and all of La' Family, all vouched for it. TelleyTell (talk) 06:55, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

@TelleyTell: What does any of this have to do with your edit? I am very confused. StaticVapor message me! 13:14, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Sections[edit]

I can't understand you. I want to improve articles and you revert all of them. Etc. Eric Young article. He was already a Sanity member before joining SmackDown. I changed the section named SmackDown and Sanity (2018-2019) and you revert it again. Why? It's not the only article you do that. Alexander Wolfe, Buddy Murphy, Cedric Alexander and more articles... And it looks like i will get blocked because of that. Michaelgabrielo (talk) 1:16, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

@Michaelgabrielo: If you continue to edit disruptivly you will have to be blocked again. You always just edit how you please regardless of the rules. Your most recent warning was for an edit to a different article. As for your edit to Young, you changed it from two or three balanced sections, into two tiny tiny sections and one huge section. Poor changes that reduce article quality will be reverted. StaticVapor message me! 04:12, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

MITB (continued)[edit]

STATicVapor, thank you for your reply on Galatz's behalf. BTW, where do you think I can get the sources for ticket prices as ticketmaster.com immediately seems to take out the sources for the prices after the show's over. There aren't much archives to be found as well.  — Ssven2 Looking at you, kid 08:29, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

@Ssven2: No problem, he has done it for me, so I thought to return the favor lol. To me, I feel like that sort of thing would be kind of trivial unless the tickets were super cheap, or super high, resulting in news coverage of it. Even though it does sound like something interesting to me, I have hardly (if ever) seen ticket prices mentioned on Wikipedia. StaticVapor message me! 09:31, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
@STATicVapor: Well, I am modelling it based on MITB 2011 and since it mentioned the ticket prices, so I figured I could do it too. Are you sure its alright not to mention them if there aren't any sources? Face-smile.svg  — Ssven2 Looking at you, kid 09:38, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ssven2: Yeah I would think so.. I do not think it would be considered vital missing information by any stretch. StaticVapor message me! 13:15, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
I think typically I have only seen them on WM type articles where they offer travel packages. - Galatz גאליץשיחה Talk 13:35, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

Reversion of edit on Alexa Bliss[edit]

Please refrain from reverting my edits without first consulting me, as I find it disrespectful. I have again changed the wording to one that is less messy, this time omitting any mention of the current status of the relationship. The engagement was revealed far before March 2018, so that was inaccurate. Also, the "reports" you speak of are nothing more than rumors from unreliable sources loaded with inconsistencies. It shouldn't have been changed in the first place. :) ☧Catholic Laitinen ☧ (talk) 13:46, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

@Catholic Laitinen: I do not have to consult you to revert your improper edit. Do you have a source it was mentioned in that is older than the current one? We only write articles based on what we can confirm with current sources. I actually just found when they got engaged so I am going to change that. I have been reverting people that have removed the mention of engagement or tried to say it ended. We do have reliable sources that reported the news, so I changed it to say that they were engaged at that time. You cannot change something to say they are currently anything, unless you have a very recent source to support it. StaticVapor message me! 02:54, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

Neville (wrestler)[edit]

Neville participated in the 2015 WWE Money In The Bank ladder match for an open contract for the WWE championship. The end of the match saw Sheamus throwing Neville off the ladder and retrieving the briefcase thus winning the match. but it doesn't reflect this info on his wiki page. I tried to figure out how to add this info but couldn't do it. Is this something you could do?Chaz2nd (talk) 21:11, 15 May 2019

@Chaz2nd: Hmm that is really weird it is not mentioned. That page is currently semi-protected due to vandalism and unsourced changes by IP editors or new users. Once you are autoconfirmed, you will be able to edit the page. User accounts that are more than four days old and have made at least 10 edits are considered autoconfirmed.

NPR Newsletter No.18[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello STATicVapor,

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.
