Archiving noticeboards[edit]

Thanks very much for your help in archiving noticeboard threads. If you would, please remember that noticeboard threads need to stay visible at least 24 hours after they are closed, in order to insure that all participants and interested parties are able to view the close and its instructions. Editors live in time zones all over the world, and also have varying sleep, work, and log-in schedules (especially during the weekend), so 24 hours is the least amount of time something needs to stay visible on the boards. The best way to calculate the 24-hour window is to Google utc time, and then subtract one day from that, and then only archive threads that were closed before that date/time. Thanks again, Softlavender (talk) 04:15, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

I understand. I was only trying to help, maybe really old threads that are past 24 hours need to have one-click archived? Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 04:41, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
Yes, that was my point: They can be archived if they are more than 24 hours past close (using UTC time, not your local time, to verify) -- but not before. Thanks, Softlavender (talk) 05:04, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello everyone, welcome to the June 2016 GOCE newsletter. It's been a few months since we sent one out; we hope y'all haven't forgotten about the Guild! Your coordinators have been busy behind the scenes as usual, though real life has a habit of reducing our personal wiki-time. The May backlog reduction drive, the usual coordinating tasks and preparations for the June election are keeping us on our toes!

May drive: Thanks to everyone who participated in last month's record-setting backlog reduction drive. Of the 29 people who signed up, 16 copyedited at least one article, 197 copyedits were recorded on the drive page, and the copyedit backlog fell below 1,500 for the first time! Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

June Blitz: this one-week copy-editing blitz will occur from 12 June through 18 June; the themes will be video games and Asian geography.

Coordinator elections: It's election time again; how quickly they seem to roll around! Nominations for the next tranche of Guild coordinators, who will serve a six-month term that begins at 00:01 UTC on 1 July and ends at 23:59 UTC on 31 December, opens at 00:01 UTC on 1 June and closes at 23:59 UTC on 15 June. Voting takes place between 00:01 UTC on 16 June and 23:59 UTC on 30 June. If you'd like to assist behind the scenes, please consider stepping forward; self-nominations are welcomed and encouraged. All Wikipedia editors in good standing are eligible; remember it's your Guild, and it doesn't run itself!

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Miniapolis and Baffle gab1978.

Hello everyone, and welcome to the September 2016 GOCE newsletter.

>>> Sign up for the September Drive, already in progress! <<<

July Drive: The July drive was a roaring success. We set out to remove April, May, and June 2015 from our backlog (our 149 oldest articles), and by 23 July, we were done with those months. We added July 2015 (66 articles) and copy-edited 37 of those. We also handled all of the remaining Requests from June 2016. Well done! Overall, we recorded copy edits to 240 articles by 20 editors, reducing our total backlog to 13 months and 1,656 articles, the second-lowest month-end total ever.

August Blitz: this one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 21 through 27 August; the theme was sports-related articles in honor of the 2016 Summer Olympics. Of the eight editors who signed up, five editors removed 11 articles from the backlog. A quiet blitz – everyone must be on vacation. Barnstars and rollover totals are located here. Thanks to all editors who took part.

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators: Jonesey95, Corinne and Tdlsk.

Gerbert (TV series)[edit]

I understand what you meant the "I hate to do this" part. I understand that you do not want me to cross too much in crediting segments in the Gerbert TV series episode without the proper source. It is okay that you deleted it and it was an overload. Since it was an old show, it was harder to do research online on cast members who appeared in the episode ahead of time and it was incomplete and disorganized. The only way to fill out the gap is to record the show and type in who appeared on the episode. Unfortunately, the first season rolls the same end credits, but we cannot tell who exactly appeared in the episode. This page needs to find a way to credit other cast members who have appeared in the episode including segments. Like what you did by deleting the staff members on the show, we obviously cannot credit everyone per season and that would take so much wikipedia space and unnecessary information. I checked the past previous wikipedia edits and before I and others started editing this page a little bit up to wikipedia standard as possible, the summary of the show was pretty sloppy, no list of appearance of cast members and citing improper sources. Not many people have worked on this Gerbert (TV Series) page was close to deletion. So far, both of us were the ones active revised this page up to standard at our best. We need to find another solution to credit segments on the show and a note section on the page. There is got to be a way to get this page up to wikipedia standard.


Cbears22 (talk) 19:06, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

I feel that something doesn't look right. I plan to help get this article up to Wikipedia standards for a potential GA or FA. A good example of a featured article about a television series is Sesame Street. If there are find some reliable sources for the production and casting of Gerbert (i.e. newspapers, books), that would help also. Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 19:33, 27 September 2016 (UTC)


Some of the sentences from past Wikipedia edits from previous wikipedia users were good and I incorporated their sentence into the summary. The rest from previous edits were sloppy and I cannot incorporated it into the summary and they did not talk much about the premise of the show. This page started in 2007 and since then there were so many changes and it became so messy and vandalized. Past wikipedia users just threw in information and did not credit the source. Looking through past wikipedia edits, I do not know where they got the information from or how they got it. Again, this page was close to deletion back in 2007 and this page revived aftermath. I agree with you that with other wikipedia edits on television shows are up to Wikipedia standards. With a short summary like this, it is not enough to pass Wikipedia standards. I am not sure if we can find any books and newspapers on the website about the television series.

A Wikipedia user found this article as well before I began revising the page. I also got the same results as you and the previous Wikipedia user. However, it is not enough to meet Wikipedia standards. I tried IMDB to look at several cast members who appeared on the show and it seemed incomplete and mixed up. It also needed some work. For the first season cast members, it is hard to determined who played Miss Deegan or Gerbert's mother. Molly Goodrich (actress) does not have any current information and Sharon Round's last information was that she was in a movie in 2001. I had to take a little guess to figure it out who played Miss Deegan or Gerbert's mother.

I was looking at McGee and Me! Wikipedia page and it passed Wikipedia standard. Gerbert (TV Series) does not have the gray box on our right hand side and I think that what the page needs.

Cbears22 (talk) 19:22, 28 September 2016 (UTC)


I found the synopsis of the Gerbert (TV series) episodes on this website Gerbert Episode Guide along with the summary of each episode. How are we going to do this without copying and pasting and plagiarism? (Thinking?) This page needs to be more reorganized. With my notes that I previously typed under the Cast section for all seasons, I can incorporate it into the episode synopsis. Organize it as if you were dividing it into seasons, but I do not know how to do the technical stuff; and I am still learning.

As for this article Chicago Tribune, you gave an idea that this page should have a synopsis and the premise of the show. How it was created and began? Previous wikipedia users have already mentioned it, but it was not like an introduction. Making a synopsis section of this page would make this page a bit stronger. We have the introduction of the show, but not how the show started or created. I would suggest to put the synopsis section in between the intro and the Cast section (put it above the cast section).

Cbears22 (talk) 22:31, 29 September 2016 (UTC)


What do you think we should name this section? Some of these are recyclable sentences from previous edits. All of the other previous edits have been vandalized without any proper citation. It needs more work, but I do not want to post it on the actual page until we agreed that this paragraph will sound good and come up with a section for this paragraph. I was the one who added the "See You Later Alligator" and "..after a while crocodile." I understand this does not make any sense, but I was just throwing out ideas.

"The Gerbert character was created and performed by Andy Holmes, of Abilene, Texas. Holmes first developed a program using Gerbert for hospitals to show children to help them get over their fears of hospitalization Chicago Tribune Gerbert's friends include Miles, Miss Deegan, a variety of multi-ethnic children, and the obnoxious Stu. Gerbert loves all people, all cultures, and his viewers. At the end of each episode, Gerbert says to the viewers "See a later alligator." At the end of many episodes of Gerbert in beginning of Season 3, the camera would zoom into a dark hole in a hollow tree, cutting to a 3-4 minute episode of Dot and Dash." Cbears22 (talk) 07:26, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

I think a plot section would be fair enough for me. Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 07:36, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

I agree. I think this page needs to have a better plot. With the research you found, it is a good idea to incorporate it onto the page. Again, I found the episode guide with the premises of the episode. If I copy and paste it is plagiarism. Cbears22 (talk) 23:29, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

Hoodwinked revert[edit]

Hi - I just reverted your edit to Hoodwinked!, but accidentally saved before writing an edit summary. The reason for the revert is that I don't see anything in Template:Infobox Film stating that co-directors shouldn't be mentioned. If you can point to a specific policy or guideline stating this rule, then I'll certainly be open to considering the change. Otherwise though, I think that it would be best to mention all three directors. --Jpcase (talk) 23:52, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

Hey there. I'll go ahead and open up a discussion on WT:MOSFILM so uninvolved editors can voice their opinions on including co-directors in infoboxes. Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 00:17, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

WikiProject Good Articles's 2016-2017 GA Cup[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2016-2017 GA Cup
Symbol support vote.svg

Greetings, all!

We would like to announce the start of the 4th GA Cup, a competition that seeks to encourage the reviewing of Good article nominations! Thus far, there have been three GA Cups, which were successful in reaching our goals of significantly reducing the traditionally long queue at GAN, so we're doing it again. Currently, there are over 400 nominations listed. We hope that we can again make an impact this time.

The 4th GA Cup will begin on November 1, 2016. Four rounds are currently scheduled (which will bring the competition to a close on February 28, 2017), but this may change based on participant numbers. We may take a break in December for the holidays, depending on the results of a poll of our participants taken shortly after the competition begins. The sign-up and submissions process will remain the same, as will the scoring.

Sign-ups for the upcoming competition are currently open and will close on November 14, 2016. Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors, so sign-up now!

If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the judges.

Cheers from 3family6, Figureskatingfan, Jaguar, MrWooHoo, and Zwerg Nase. We apologize for the delay in sending out this message until after the competition has started. Thank you to Krishna Chaitanya Velaga for aiding in getting this message out.

To subscribe or unsubscribe to future GA Cup newsletters, please add or remove your name to our mailing list. If you are a participant, you will be on the mailing list no matter what as this is the easiest way to communicate between all participants.

Cleaning up List of Naruto characters?[edit]

Over some time ago, the list was given additional stuff based on the series' ending and movies. However, some parts feel small like Rock Lee's son to be part of Wikipedia. Before the list gets reassessed again, I wonder if we could clean it up in order to avoid it. What do you think? Regards.Tintor2 (talk) 23:05, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

While it's true you may have watched the film, your plot summary was close to 360 words, which is below our WP:FILMPLOT limit of 400 to 700 words. The 567 word limit in the current summary is also acceptable. Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 01:47, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Guild of Copy Editors December 2016 News[edit]

Guild of Copy Editors December 2016 News
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello everyone, and welcome to the December 2016 GOCE newsletter. We had an October newsletter all set to go, but it looks like we never pushed the button to deliver it, so this one contains a few months of updates. We have been busy and successful!

Coordinator elections for the first half of 2017: Nominations are open for election of Coordinators for the first half of 2017. Please visit the election page to nominate yourself or another editor, and then return after December 15 to vote. Thanks for participating!

September Drive: The September drive was fruitful. We set out to remove July through October 2015 from our backlog (an ambitious 269 articles), and by the end of the month, we had cut that pile of oldest articles to just 83. We reduced our overall backlog by 97 articles, even with new copyedit tags being added to articles every day. We also handled 75% of the remaining Requests from August 2016. Overall, 19 editors recorded copy edits to 233 articles (over 378,000 words).

October Blitz: this one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 16 through 22 October; the theme was Requests, since the backlog was getting a bit long. Of the 16 editors who signed up, 10 editors completed 29 requests. Barnstars and rollover totals are located here. Thanks to all editors who took part.

November Drive: The November drive was a record-breaker! We set out to remove September through December 2015 from our backlog (239 articles), and by the end of the month, we had cut that pile of old articles to just 66, eliminating the two oldest months! We reduced our overall backlog by 523 articles, to a new record low of 1,414 articles, even with new tags being added to articles every day, which means we removed copy-editing tags from over 800 articles. We also handled all of the remaining Requests from October 2016. Officially, 14 editors recorded copy edits to 200 articles (over 312,000 words), but over 600 articles, usually quick fixes and short articles, were not recorded on the drive page.

Housekeeping note: we do not send a newsletter before every drive or blitz. To have a better chance of knowing when the next event will start, add the GOCE's message box to your Watchlist.

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators: Jonesey95, Corinne and Tdslk.
