Paywall source / Garson[edit]

But the source doesn't mention anything about Garson! Govvy (talk) 23:39, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Govvy, I'm assuming this is about Willie Garson? You are correct that the first paragraph doesn't. Do you have evidence that the whole source doesn't mention him? Stuartyeates (talk) 23:49, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
Nope, but the source voids out because it's behind a paywall, the first paragraph doesn't mention him and it fails to deliver. These paywall sources aren't good for wikipedia. Govvy (talk) 23:58, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
Please read WP:PAYWALL. Stuartyeates (talk) 00:01, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Takapu Valley[edit]

I wrote an article on Takapu Valley which is one of the official suburbs of Wellington City, as you can see from the template at the bottom of the article (though like Makara Beach which is somewhat larger, it has only a small population on one road). Hence I think they each deserve their own article. Hugo999 (talk) 11:00, 3 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Hugo999, I've lived in Wellington most of my life and never heard of it, but apparently google maps has. At the end of the day this is a question of sources and I'm not sure the sources are there to be honest, but I'll not take it to AfD immediately. Stuartyeates (talk) 23:08, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
I would argue that official suburbs have inherent notability. Not all cities have them defined (e.g. suburbs or their boundaries aren't defined in Christchurch), but Wellington does. Schwede66 00:40, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
Is there a source for 'official suburbs' ? Stuartyeates (talk) 00:42, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
The 2013 census made Takapu an area unit. That's not the same as 'official suburb' but does suggest there is a community. Also, the growth in population of over 30% since the 2006 census seems quite impressive.-gadfium 01:20, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

Pinging @User:Schwede66, @User:Grutness and @User:Calvin Hogg as editors of Template:Suburbs of Wellington City, which appears to be the source of the claim that 'Takapu Valley' is an 'official suburb' Stuartyeates (talk) 03:53, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

The same map is hosted by Wellington City Council. Schwede66 05:09, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
That's a great map. It's also a primary source and thus not suitable for claims that these are 'official suburbs.' Stuartyeates (talk) 09:41, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
Huh? Who else, other than a district or city council, would you expect to define official suburbs? Schwede66 18:15, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
Well, the electoral commission and NZ Post have their own systems to start with, but that's not the point: a primary source is a primary source. Stuartyeates (talk) 21:12, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

What about this as a source? Grutness...wha? 00:33, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

Isn't that the census block? It includes most of tawa, unlike the WCC area. Stuartyeates (talk) 00:51, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Jael and Sisera (Artemisia Gentileschi), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Canaanite (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

New Page Review - Newsletter No.4[edit]

Hello Stuartyeates,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Since rolling out the right in November, just 6 months ago, we now have 464 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.

Stay up to date with recent new page developments and have your say, read THIS PAGE.

Hi Stuartyeates, thanks for taking a look at my submission! I've dug out all the articles I could find from Irish online magazines which get significant coverage in Ireland and among the Irish abroad. Some Berlin-based sources as well, one English-speaking and one radio piece in German. Do you think a re-submit would be successful now?

I won't be approving the article in it's current state. Not even close, sorry. Stuartyeates (talk) 04:43, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

This is to inform you that an attempt is being made to overturn an RfC that you commented on[edit]

This is to inform you that an attempt is being made to overturn an RfC that you commented on (2 RfCs, actually, one less than six months ago and another a year ago). The new RfC is at:

Wikipedia:Village pump (policy)#RfC: Allow private schools to be characterized as non-affiliated as well as religious, in infobox?

Specifically, it asks that "religion = none" be allowed in the infobox.

The first RfC that this new RfC is trying to overturn is:

The result of that RfC was "unambiguously in favour of omitting the parameter altogether for 'none' " and despite the RfC title, additionally found that "There's no obvious reason why this would not apply to historical or fictional characters, institutions etc.", and that nonreligions listed in the religion entry should be removed when found "in any article".

The second RfC that this new RfC is trying to overturn is:

The result of that RfC was that the "in all Wikipedia articles, without exception, nonreligions should not be listed in the Religion= parameter of the infobox.".

Note: I am informing everyone who commented on the above RfCs, whether they supported or opposed the final consensus. --Guy Macon (talk) 04:22, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

New Page Reviewer Newsletter[edit]

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

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 18,511 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.
  • Some editors are committing to work specifically on patrolling new pages on 15 July. If you have not reviewed new pages in a while, this might be a good time to be involved. Please remember that quality of patrolling is more important than quantity, that the speedy deletion criteria should be followed strictly, and that ovetagging for minor issues should be avoided.

Technology update:

  • Several requests have been put into Phabractor to increase usability of the New Pages Feed and the Page Curation toolbar. For more details or to suggest improvements go to Wikipedia:Page Curation/Suggested improvements
  • The tutorial has been updated to include links to the following useful userscripts. If you were not aware of them, they could be useful in your efforts reviewing new pages:
