User talk: Eubot and Twinkle[edit]

I reverted the last 500 edits on that page, removing between 300k and 400k bytes, and reducing the number of sections from the 600s to the 100s. Almost all of those edits were automated Twinkle edits for the redirect deletion. Is that okay? HotdogPi 16:56, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

@HotdogPi: I'd prefer you archive the noticies to a separate page for future reference, for I have a bunch of lists of redirects that I (and SimonTrew need to keep an eye on, if I notice any redlinks, I'd just go and remove them off the list. Thanks. - CHAMPION (talk) (contributions) (logs) 00:48, 1 January 2017 (UTC)


Thanks! Can't promise how much of my time I'll be able to spend on it, since I have multiple long-term, large-scale, eternally-repetitive tasks I'm involved with either permanently or from time to time, but I should be able to put some time in it at least every now and then. From time to time I need a break from the other things anyway. Found your lists of Eubot redirects. To avoid repeating your work or having you needlessly repeat mine, any preference for which list I pick to start from? Also, would it be acceptable if I edit whichever list I end up working from to mark the ones I've checked and either found valid or listed at RfD, so it's easier at a glance to see which ones I've either not yet checked or was uncertain about? I'd leave the actual list in-tact, not gonna remove stuff from it, probably would just put or something similar at the start of the ones done, and something like (RfD) with a link to the discussion for those posted to RfD. AddWittyNameHere (talk) 04:46, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

    • @AddWittyNameHere: Any list will do, but I suggest you begin with 18 for that one is almost done with and work your way backwards, and that way is just fine with me, but a list entry should be removed if it deleted/kept at RfD or certain that it will be kept, the progress meter should be updated accordingly, also, if you are not sure about any of them, just make a new section and move them there. Thanks. - CHAMPION (talk) (contributions) (logs) 04:59, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
Sounds fine. There's no consensus either way yet for the em-dash/double-hyphen cases or the ligatures like Æ/AE, from what I can tell. Any other cases I'd better either hold off on entirely or at most put up a small batch of to check consensus?
Does 'certain it will be kept' include all cases of blatantly valid redirect, or solely those where similar eubot-created cases have actually been 'tested' against RfD? AddWittyNameHere (talk) 05:21, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
@AddWittyNameHere: I suggest you ask SimonTrew for he has been doing a lot of this, I can't recall any of these at the top of my head, thanks. - CHAMPION (talk) (contributions) (logs) 05:43, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
Ah, I see, I see. Oh well, there's enough stuff in there that I am sure ought to be RfDed-and-deleted that I'll focus on those for now. In the mean time I've listed a couple more at RfD, found two clearly valid no-diacritic redirs and removed them from the list & added a quick link to the RfD discussion for all ongoing discussions for list 18.

CSD X1 & X2[edit]

Just a note, when tagging for speedy deletion under the temporary criteria CSD X1 & X2, you can use the standard templates {{db-x1}} & {{db-x2}}. These templates will properly tag and categorize the target for deletion. Thanks. Safiel (talk) 01:50, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

Page move for Presidential Office Building[edit]


I have completed this request successfully.

Thanks! -- Dane talk 04:10, 14 January 2017 (UTC)


For your future reference, it might be helpful to put forward an argument favoring your proposal when making a proposal. Just saying. --В²C 16:29, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

New Page Review - newsletter No.2[edit]

Hello Champion,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
A HUGE backlog

We now have 365 New Page Reviewers!
Most of us requested the user right at PERM, expressing a wish to be able to do something about the huge backlog, but the chart on the right does not demonstrate any changes to the pre-user-right levels of October.

Hitting 17,000 soon

The backlog is still steadily growing at a rate of 150 a day or 4,650 a month. Only 20 reviews a day by each reviewer over the next few days would bring the backlog down to a managable level and the daily input can then be processed by each reviewer doing only 2 or 3 reviews a day - that's about 5 minutes work!
It didn't work in time to relax for the Xmas/New Year holidays. Let's see if we can achieve our goal before Easter, otherwise by Thanksgiving it will be closer to 70,000.

Second set of eyes

Remember that we are the only guardians of quality of new articles, we alone have to ensure that pages are being correctly tagged by non-Reviewer patrollers and that new authors are not being bitten.


This is even more important and extra vigilance is required considering Orangemoody, and

  1. this very recent case of paid advertising by a Reviewer resulting in a community ban.
  2. this case in January of paid advertising by a Reviewer, also resulting in a community ban.
  3. This Reviewer is indefinitely blocked for sockpuppetry.

Coordinator election[edit]

Kudpung is stepping down after 6 years as unofficial coordinator of New Page Patrolling/Reviewing. There is enough work for two people and two coords are now required. Details are at NPR Coordinators; nominate someone or nominate yourself. Date for the actual suffrage will be published later.

New Page Review-Patrolling: Coordinator elections[edit]

Your last chance to nominate yourself or any New Page Reviewer, See Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Coordination. Elections begin Monday 20 February 23:59 UTC. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 08:17, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

New Page Review - newsletter No.3[edit]

Hello Champion,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Voting for coordinators has now begun HERE and will continue through/to 23:59 UTC Monday 06 March. Please be sure to vote. Any registered, confirmed editor can vote. Nominations are now closed.

Still a MASSIVE backlog

We now have 365 New Page Reviewers but despite numerous appeals for help, the backlog has NOT been significantly reduced.
If you asked for the New Page Reviewer right, please consider investing a bit of time - every little helps preventing spam and trash entering the mainspace and Google when the 'NO_INDEX' tags expire.

Your feedback matters: Final reminder to take the global Wikimedia survey[edit]

Trumpcare Redirect[edit]

I suggested another redirect for Trumpcare. I think it works better and can find quick consensus. Casprings (talk) 15:46, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

Mrs. Donald Trump listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Mrs. Donald Trump. Since you had some involvement with the Mrs. Donald Trump redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. --Nevéselbert 22:32, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

Deletion review for Nigerian prince[edit]

An editor has asked for a deletion review of Nigerian prince. Because you closed the deletion discussion for this page, speedily deleted it, or otherwise were interested in the page, you might want to participate in the deletion review. Steel1943 (talk) 23:39, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

Angus (name)[edit]

I'm not sure why you created Angus (name), but I've retargeted it to Angus (disambiguation)#Names. Per WP:APOTITLE, the "(name)" disambiguator is used for both given names and surnames, not just given names, and Angus (surname) exists. If you get an itch for creating these in the future, please be careful of this distinction. Thanks, -- Tavix (talk) 00:09, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

@Tavix: I didn't double check, thanks. I thought I just got a message relating to the discussion I closed before (see above), because I felt I had enough on that affair. (Are you stalking my contributions? Face-smile.svg) - CHAMPION (talk) (contributions) (logs) 00:11, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation pages[edit]

Hello, Champion. When you changed the ABC TV redirect so that its target was a disambiguation page, you may not have been aware of WP:FIXDABLINKS, which says:

When creating disambiguation pages, fix all resulting mis-directed links.
Before moving an article to a qualified name (in order to create a disambiguation page at the base name, to move an existing disambiguation page to that name, or to redirect that name to a disambiguation page), click on What links here to find all of the incoming links. Repair all of those incoming links to use the new article name.

It would be a great help if you would check the other Wikipedia articles that contain links to "ABC TV" and fix them to take readers to the correct article. Thanks. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 10:30, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
