Tijana Krivacevic[edit]

Hi! It seems you recently created an unreferenced biography of a living person: Tijana Krivacevic. The community has decided that all new biographies of living persons must contain a reliable source that supports at least one statement made about the person in the article as per our verifiability policy. Please add references as soon as possible. Thanks! --LaraBot (talk) 00:10, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Tijana Krivacevic[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Tijana Krivacevic has been proposed for deletion because under Wikipedia policy, all biographies of living persons created after March 18, 2010, must have at least one source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't take offense. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners or ask at Wikipedia:Help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. NW (Talk) 05:07, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Re: Water polo[edit]

Hey, it´s no problem. It´s a thing of 10-15 seconds and thanks for the kind words. Regards Kante4 (talk) 14:25, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Re: Handball[edit]

I thought because they were replaced i remove them but it´s no problem if you want to re-add them... Kante4 (talk) 22:26, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Gabriella Szűcs[edit]

Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give Gabriella Szücs a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Gabriella Szűcs. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you.

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of József Éles at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and there still are some issues that may need to be clarified.

Ferencvárosi TC (handball)[edit]

I agree that you have a point, but until there is an article on the men's side this is OK to redirect to the only relevant article. When there is an article for the men, this can become a disambiguation page for the two. Peridon (talk) 12:56, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Use of File:Győri ETO KC logo.png[edit]

I've removed the uses you had of this image in 2009–10 Nemzeti Bajnokság I (Women's handball) and 2009–10 Nemzeti Bajnokság I (Women's handball) as well as removing the rationales you added to the image for those uses. The reason is that this type of use is a failure of WP:NFCC #1. It is not necessary nor desired to include the logo of a team when it is mentioned in the prose of an article. Since the text already includes mention of the winning team, including the logo is redundant and is a failure of the replaceability clause of WP:NFCC #1. Please do not restore the image to this use, and please do not use non-free images in this manner. If you have questions about this, please ask. Thank you, --Hammersoft (talk) 20:37, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Deletion[edit]

Hey, yeah i saw the deletion message and "discussion" earlier but did not know what i thought about it. But now i guess they should be deleted as the qualifying phases for both (men and women) are not that long and are just a bracket and 4 matches (handballboxes), so it is not much to scroll. I thought about maybe having an extra article for the group phase and then later for the knockout stage as that uses a lot of space like we saw last year. Just 1 not one for each group or round. What you think about that? I will write my comment at the deletion entry now. Kante4 (talk) 14:53, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Oops, forget that one. ;) Will do now. Kante4 (talk) 15:13, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

EHF[edit]

Hey, i thought about it too and don´t know especially what to do. Less matches is/was the reason to keep it in the main article, but like you said the info would be in one page. I would lean to a subarticle but i ask you too, what would you do? Kante4 (talk) 10:29, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, i think it´s better to make a subarticle. I was very busy the last weeks and had no time to create all EHF "things", yesterday i had a free day, and so i started it all. As i speak, i got to leave again. ;) Let´s try to keep the article up-to-date and make it look good. Kante4 (talk) 09:19, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
I think we should add the Round 1 and 2 from the women´s article in the same article and call it group stages, just two groups, no need for another subarticle. Kante4 (talk) 23:22, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
Yep, you got it right. Your name is also good and maybe even better as you pointed out. Kante4 (talk) 13:55, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the words, i also corrected a misstake from my side. I´m glad you look over the articles and feel free to edit it when something is wrong, you want to add something or the results. Kante4 (talk) 16:10, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Great job ...[edit]

Szemeredi's citizenship[edit]

- Az megvan már, hogy mire költi ezt a rengeteg pénzt? (A díjjal 6 millió norvég korona, vagyis 800 ezer eurónak és 1 millió dollárnak megfelelő összeg is jár.)

- Ez jó kérdés... nem tudom, ezt az összeget itthon adóztatják-e - mert a Nobel- és a Széchenyi-díj sem adóköteles -, de ha igen, és a magyar hatóságokkal meg tudnék állapodni, akkor pont annyit, amennyit Amerikában adóznék mint kettős állampolgár, annyit jótékonysági célokra felajánlanék itthon.

Szia ! Gondolom, könyebb lesz magyarul beszélgetni :) Nagyon köszönöm a meghívást ! Örülök, hogy részt vehetek egy ilyen projektben ! Beírtam a felhasználónevemet a "Sports and games" kategóriába.

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, place a new {{help me}} request on this page followed by your questions, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

Hello!

I was about to set up the Sports and games task force for the WikiProject Hungary, but did not manage to work out, how to set the Template:WikiProject Hungary. Although on the template's site it looks all okay, when added to for example Talk:Tímea Babos, it went all wrong and the task force slipped below the main project. Could anyone tell me what is wrong or help to fix it and make the template correct? Thanks in advance! — Thehoboclown (talk) 11:18, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Your warning for Iadrian yu[edit]

Hello Thehoboclown,

Although I fully understand that Iadrian yu's contributions to the English Wikipedia may have been causing you a lot of frustration and chagrin, I have to note that what he did at Marosvásárhely and Komárom was not vandalism. For this reason, we can't treat him as a vandal. What he has been doing in Wikipdia is POV pushing at best. He has a strong opinion on Hungarians ,for example : see this edit summary here, or see here what he voted for. And in addition, at least 50% of his contributions to the project is that he keeps watching out for what Hungarian users just happen to edit ,in order to appear at the same place to represent his well-known counter opinion there. But we still need to recognise that Wikipedia is an encyclopedia open for everyone to edit. And a lot of people edit it with a very different cultural background.--Nmate (talk) 10:12, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

I am sorry but I just saw this message. Although Nmate thinks this, that is not the reason for anybody else to think like this about me. What he is trying to do here is ridiculous. Adding this diffs to present me as some sort of a person with "strong POV" is wrong. I hope this diffs speak for themselves. You were right to correct me, maybe not as a Vandal, but that doesn`t matter. I sincerely forgot about the result when we talked about and edited the problematic article. When you corrected me I did`t edited that again. I hope that when we cooperate in the future that can be done as it was until now. Greetings. Adrian (talk) 18:25, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Warning?[edit]

Why you warn me? Why you including places with Serb majority into category "Hungarian communities in Vojvodina"? That is clearly inaccurate category. You should add into that categori articles about villages where Hungarians are in majority. 77.105.57.115 (talk) 18:08, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

According to which English-language source one place where Hungarians are not in majority can be described as "Hungarian community"? If you describe Serb communities as "Hungarian communities" then you confuse readers who might think that Hungarians are in majority there. Why you do not want to include into this category actual villages with Hungarian majority? 77.105.57.115 (talk) 18:17, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
If "Community means a group of people" then how a village or municipality is community? Anyway, it is not correct that term "Hungarian communities" means that "these places have considerable Hungarian population". "Hungarians communities" means that these places are exclusively or predominately Hungarian communities. If you had aim to create category for "places which have considerable Hungarian population", why you didn't named that category like this? Name that you choose for that category was/is misleading if you didn't had aim to describe "exclusively or predominately Hungarian communities". Moreover, you included into this category articles like Inđija where only 1.93% Hungarians live? That is not even a place with "considerable Hungarian population". I propose that you add your category into articles about all these villages: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hungarians_in_Vojvodina#Settlements_with_Hungarian_majority In that way, category will not be misleading. I already included some of these villages into new category and I didn't removed category from articles about places with Hungarian majority. However, inclusion of places with Serb majority into misleading category is a problem. 77.105.57.115 (talk) 18:46, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
I do not know anything about Turkish communities in Germany, but if categories about one country are not categorized accurately, it doesn't mean that same should be done with categories of other countries. Also, if you warn me about revert warring why you behave like this by yourself? You are obviously disruptive user. I now included all villages with Hungarian majority in your category and I see no reason to include any other settlement there. Moreover, most settlements of Vojvodina are populated by many ethnic groups which make even more misleading to describe such settlements as exclusively "Hungarian communities". Please stop your revert warring and disruptive behavior. 77.105.57.115 (talk) 19:15, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
I will repeat: when speakers of English language read term "Hungarian communities" the first thing to which they would be associated are "exclusively or predominately Hungarian communities". I doubt that anybody would interpret term "Hungarian community" as a place with "84.87% Serbs, 3.83% Croats, 1.95% Yugoslavs and 1.93% Hungarians" (and you included article about such place into category "Hungarian communities", see Inđija again). If we speak about POV, you obviously have POV approach to this because, for some reason, you want to make false impression to Wikipedia readers so that they think that these places have Hungarian majority. If you really want to improve these articles then you should have same approach to all ethnic groups in all these settlement. For example, following your logic, Inđija could be categorized as "Communities in Vojvodina with Serb majority", "Communities in Vojvodina with sizable Croat minority", "Communities in Vojvodina with sizable Yugoslav minority", "Communities in Vojvodina with sizable Ukrainian minority", "Communities in Vojvodina with sizable Hungarian minority", "Communities in Vojvodina with sizable Montenegrin minority". Only in such case we would have accurate name for categories and NPOV approach. We should also define what is a "sizable minority"? 40% 30% 20% However, I also think that it is stupid that we create such categories for all ethnic groups because most places in Vojvodina have minorities and if we follow your approach that "sizable minority includes 1% of population" then most places of Vojvodina would be included into most ethnic categories. What would be purpose of that anyway? 77.105.57.115 (talk) 19:40, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
Fine, then I propose name of new category: "Category:Communities in Vojvodina with sizable Hungarian minority (5-49%)". 77.105.57.115 (talk) 19:58, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi, I am Wikishagnik a new Volunteer to DRN. I noticed that none of the talk pages in the articles listed in this DRN have any discussion about Categories. This is a necessary first step before we can take this case up for discussion in the DRN.

Brașov Olympic Ice Rink[edit]

Hello,

Sorry for reverting your restored information but the Romanian ice rink had a cost of 10-12 million of euros and was opened 4 years later. So the price should have been higher and it was. Also, I am posting for you outside photos of the 2 locations to see there is a difference of architecture between them.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0f/J%C3%A9gcsarnok.jpg http://www.looms.ro/filesystem/images/big/patinoarul-olimpic-brasov-vedere-exterioara.jpg

With all the respect, Hobo, Miskolc Ice Hall looks cheaper. At least from outside. And your ice rink doesn't hold/include a cube.

Moreover, Gazeta Sporturilor belongs to the Intact Media Group, own by Dan Voiculescu. His television Antena 3 is linked to the USL the rival part of PD-L. So the article on tolo.ro (the blog of Cătălin Tolontan, GSP editor) is political and not correct I've explained you why. First, because there is a difference between the two constructions. Secondly, because of subjectivity.

I also remember a same style comparison between the big of stadium of Bucharest and the stadium from Frankfurt. Gazeta Sporturilor mentioned incorrectly that a train station was included in the price of the German construction and it was not.

So do you understand now why I did that? I expekt objectivity from you and the present Romanians don't need to suffer because of the past mistakes. Both Romania and Hungary did many but we move on. I just hope you are not an extremist who wants to expose this. I know it was written by Romanian/s but it is political and false.

Myerge (talk) 21:46, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Hey!
Politics and other stuffs has nothing to do with Wikipedia. The paragraph is well referenced and objective, thus there is no reason to remove it. If you think a source is unreliable or so, feel free to go to the Reliable sources noticeboard and follow the instructions. Until those sources aren't proven unreliable, they should remain, and your action of removing the paragraph is considered vandalism. Please, refrain from such actions. As I see, you are a newcomer, so I suggest to find areas you like or you are good in, and edit in those and get familiar with the rules. You may also consider to be adopted by an experienced user, who can help you in the first steps. Don't be afraid of editing, however, be careful. Start with small edits, and once you get more experienced you can make it to the level. At all, one thing is sure: removing a whole paragraph based on some unproven ideas is not the best way to start. Thehoboclown (talk) 19:57, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Hello - Help[edit]

Hello, I saw you edited Novi Kneževac, [1]. I was looking for some user that is interested in this articles. There is a banned editor who uses socks to remove Hungarian names(sometimes everything that is related to Hungarians) from articles in Vojvodina. I have added Hungarian names in infoboxes where the Hungarian population is more than 20%. If you can, from time to time, to have some articles on watchlist in case this happens again. I have stopped him several times, but I intend to repair many articles in Vojvodina and I just can`t watch them all. I will try and will watch them, but it would be much more efficient if there would be more users. If you can help with this user who from time to time do this, that would be great. Greetings.

Gardoș & Papp[edit]

Hi. Please don't be mad at me! I reverted your edits. You can write about their personal lives if you want. Nobody should deny their ethnicity. But you must come with their declarations or some from their families. In rest all the best. Just one more question, why do you confuse things? Origin is not the same thing with descendency. If you are not sure about the origins (both parents Hungarians), please write "descent". And please add: on his father/mother's ancestry/descent through her father/mother. We must stick to objectivity! Not all the people are the same. Please don't be nationalistic and judge correctly. All the best, mate! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:2F09:418F:FFFF:0:0:4F72:2774 (talk) 15:39, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

I'm not mad or whatever. I'm happy to help you and thus I must inform you that since you are a newcomer you might not be familiar with WP:PRINCIPLES. What I added is supported by clear and reliable references. I rather feel you are a one who feel uncomfortable with it (and came out from the blue to revert it for whatever reason), and you are the one who make prejudice without knowing how wikipedia works, and you are the one who accuse me, again don't know why. I suggest you to register and make some credible edits, get familiar with wikipedia and make wikipedia better with constructive edits. This is not the best way to start you wikipedia "career". Also, although I really hate to say this, it is your last warning – if you further remove referenced sections or sentences, you may end up blocked for disruptive editing.

Handball awards[edit]

Hi Hobo. I know you are very disciplined, respecting the regulations all the time, but if you removed those why couldn't you help me by writing them? I would have done that for you. Robert Robertescu (talk) 16:37, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi there! To be honest, I don't really get what you try to say - my bad -, but I think it's kinda obvious finishing nth on a topscorers' list is not an award, no physical prize is given for that, therefore I removed those. If you think it's worth to mention that x finished nth in a topscorers' list, then go ahead add it to the article body in prose. Probably adding a proper citation to it would be a nice as well! Thehoboclown (talk) 06:58, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Gardos[edit]

Please be reasonable. He is obviously not 100% ethnic Hungarian. His name is Romanian (Florin), his parents' name are Romanian (Traian and Dorina), so he clearly has a mixed origin. Cricrucra (talk) 09:44, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Don't get me wrong, I do not suggest hiding his Hungarian origin (if it exists), but I have serious doubts about it. There is a single sports media article. Laszlo Sepsi has a typical Hungarian name, but for Florin Gardos I was not able to find Hungarian surnames (for him/parents/grandparents). 09:51, 21 August 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cricrucra (talkcontribs)
Hey there!
First of all, I'd like to emphasize that I'm not dragging into any stupid issue over how much one to an ethnic group belongs. It's already plain stupid how you started this thing. Second, noone stated that he has not a mixed background, just cited the ref, which stated he is of Hungarian origin (and it did not deny that he is also of Romanian origin..) – it was brought up by you who is twisting the words and making whatever original researches claiming things like "parents have Romanian names" and "it suggests that he is partly Hungarian" (do you have a machine to measure how much one belong to an ethnic group?, wow..) and then you have "serious doubts" on his Hungarianness. Bleh. To cut the story short, I insert there the word "descent", which is probably the closest to what in the article is stated AND fits your hungaro-romanometer. Otherwise, I'm ready to bring the issue to higher official level if you keep on your original research and keep on riding on this ethnic related issue. Put aside your thoughts and bring there a ref what supports your claim, or leave it as it now PER THE REF. That's how wiki works.. Thehoboclown (talk) 10:09, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

GA Cup - Round 1 Newsletter #2[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup - Round 1
Symbol support vote.svg

Hello GA Cup competitors!

The judges have learned a great deal in this first part of the competition, and we appreciate your patience with us as we've figured out what works and what doesn't work. As we reported in our last newsletter, an inadequacy in the scoring system has been illuminated in the past 15 days, which has resulted in a major change in the rules. It has also resulted in one withdrawal.

To ensure fairness, we've decided to further increase the number of participants moving onto Round 2. Everyone who has reviewed at least one article will automatically be moved forward, and will be placed in pools. You have until October 29 to take advantage of this opportunity. It is our hope that this will make up for the unforeseen glitch in our scoring system.

Best of wishes to all of you as you continue to help improve articles and make Wikipedia a better place.

Cheers from NickGibson3900, Dom497, TheQ Editor and Figureskatingfan.

GA Cup - Round 2[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup - Round 2
Symbol support vote.svg

Greetings, GA Cup competitors!

Wednesday saw the end of Round 1. Jaguar took out Round 1 with an amazing score of 238. In a tight race for second, Peacemaker67 and Ritchie333 finished second and third with 152 and 141 points, respectively.

Two users have scored the maximum five bonus points for article length (60,000 characters+). Anotherclown reviewed Spanish conquest of Yucatán (77,350 characters) and MrWooHoo reviewed Communist Party of China (76,740 characters). The longest review was by Bilorv who reviewed Caldas da Rainha. The review was approximately 22,400 characters which earned s/he two bonus points (20, 000 - 29, 999 characters).

In Round 1, 117 reviews were completed, making the first round of the GA Cup a success! A total of 86 articles were removed from the backlog during the month of October! We hope to see all remaining users fighting it out in Round 2 so we can lower the backlog as much as possible.

To qualify for the second round, one completed review was needed, which 28 users accomplished. Participants have been randomly put into 7 pools of 4; the top 2 in each pool will move onto Round 3. There will also be one wildcard. This means that the participant who comes in 15th place (all pools combined) will also move on. Round 2 will start on November 1 at 0:00:01 UTC and end on November 29 at 23:59:59 UTC. Information about Round 2 and the pools can be found here

Also, remember that a major rule change will go into affect starting on November 1, which marks the beginning of Round Two. Round 1 displayed a weakness in the rules, which we are correcting with this new rule. We believe that this change will make the competition more inherently fair. The new rule is: Your review must provide feedback/suggestions for improvement, and then you must wait until the nominator has responded and all issues/suggestions have been resolved before you can pass the article. Failure to follow this rule will result in disqualification. The judges will strictly enforce this new rule.

Good luck and remember to have fun!

Cheers from NickGibson3900, Dom497, TheQ Editor and Figureskatingfan.

GA Cup - Round 3[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup - Round 3
Symbol support vote.svg

Greetings, all! We hope that all of our American GA Cup competitors had an enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday.

Friday saw the end of Round 2. Two from 7 pools, plus a tie score and one wildcard (16 in all) moved onto the next round. Some pools were more competitive than others. Round 2's highest scorer was 3family6, with an impressive 255 points. Good888, who came in second place overall with 202 points, reviewed the most articles (19). The wildcard slot for Round 2 went to Jaguar. Congrats to all!

Round 3 will have 15 competitors in three pools. The key to moving forward in Round 2 seemed to be reviewing articles with the longest nomination dates; almost everyone who moved forward nominated at least one article from the pink nomination box (20 points) or reviewed articles that had languished in the queue for over 5 months (18 points). The GA Cup was also used to promote a group of articles about The Boat Race, a rowing race held annually since 1856 between Oxford University and Cambridge University, on the River Thames. 17 Boat Race articles were promoted to GA in November.

In Round 2, 110 reviews were completed, as compared to 117 in Round 1. The GA Cup continues to be a success. This month, we got a report from User:AmericanLemming, who maintains the GA statistics, that in October, there was a net gain of 201 articles nominated for GA. He thought that more open GANs could mean that more editors are submitting more of their articles to the GAN process. In addition, having a high-throughput of GANs means that more articles get reviewed more quickly, which reduces the frustration of potentially waiting several months to get an article reviewed. The activity in Round 2 of the GA Cup seems to bear that out. It's our hope that the competitors' enthusiasm continues in Round 3, and we can continue to make a difference in helping more editors improve their articles.

For Round 3, participants have been randomly put in 3 pools of 5 contestants each; the top two in each pool progressing, as well as the top 2 of all remaining users. Round 3 will start on December 1 at 0:00:01 UTC and end on December 29 at 23:59:59 UTC. Information about Round 3 and the pools can be found here.

There have been a couple of rules clarifications to announce. We're slightly changing the wording to the second bullet in "General rules", which now reads: You may only score points in a round for reviews which have been completed in that round. We're also including this clarification: Only reviews started during the competition are eligible. We have also lost a judge, so there are now only three judges.

Good luck and remember to have fun as we move into the holiday season. It is the judges' hope that every competitor in the GA Cup has a joyous holiday season and Happy New Year.

GA Cup - Round 4 (Semi-Finals)[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup - Round 4
Symbol support vote.svg

Happy New Year! We hope that all of our GA Cup competitors had an enjoyable and safe holiday season.

Monday saw the end of Round 3. Eight contestants moved forward to Round 4—the top two contestants from each of Round 3's three pools and the top two participants of all remaining users. It was an exciting competition, especially towards the end. Round 3's highest scorer was Jaguar, Round 2's wildcard, with an impressive 305 points, the highest score in the GA Cup thus far. Pool B was the closest race; J_Milburn and Cwmhiraeth switched places a few times in the final hours of the competition, although J Milburn edged out Cwmhiraeth by just 9 points. Pool A was, by far, the most competitive; four out of five moved onto Round 4, and its competitors earned a cumulative 935 points and reviewed 59 articles. Ritchie333, who came in second overall with 255 points, reviewed the most articles (17). Peacemaker67 and Wizardman earned the two wildcard slots, with 184 and 154 points, respectively. Congrats to all!

114 articles were reviewed this round, as compared to 110 in Round 2 and 117 in Round 1. The key to success in Round 3, like in Round 2, was reviewing articles with the longest nomination dates; everyone who moved forward reviewed articles from the pink nomination box (20 points) or reviewed articles that had languished in the queue for over 5 months (18 points). Many of these articles had languished because their nominators had left Wikipedia and had little chance of passing to GA, so our competitors provided a great service by helping remove them from the queue. Also as in Round 2, The Boat Race articles proved to be popular review choices, with 10% of all the articles reviewed in December. We appreciate the competitors' continued enthusiasm, even during the busy holiday season. At least one competitor even reviewed articles while preparing for a holiday meal!

For Round 4, participants have been randomly put in 2 pools of 4 contestants each. The top two in each pool will progress to the finals, as well as the top participant (5th place) of all remaining users. The semi-finals will start on January 1 at 0:00:01 UTC and end on January 29 at 23:59:59 UTC. Information about Round 4 and the pools can be found here.

We received some excellent feedback about how to improve the GA Cup in the future, including the definition of "quickfails" and the use of pools, which we'll seriously consider as we move forward. As a result of this feedback and the experience we've gained, there will be some changes to the rules come next years GA Cup.

Good luck to all our semi-finalists! It is the judges' hope that every competitor in the GA Cup continue to have fun and be enthusiastic about reviewing and passing articles to GA!

Cheers from Dom497, TheQ Editor and Figureskatingfan.

GA Cup - The Finals[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup - Round 5/Final
Symbol support vote.svg

GA Cup competitors and observers: Get ready, we're about to move into the finals of the inaugural GA Cup! Not nearly as important as another competition taking place this weekend, but significant none the less. No deflated footballs here, though!

Thursday saw the end of Round 4. Out of the 8 contestants in the semi-finals, 5 have moved to the finals. The semi-finals continued to be very competitive. The highest scorer overall was Ritchie333 from Pool B, with an impressive 488 points and a total of 36 articles reviewed, the most of any competitor; close behind was Jaguar (last round's wildcard), with 477 points and 29 reviews. At times, the competition between them was a real horse-race, and exciting for the judges to witness. Both Ritchie333 and Jaguar have moved onto the finals. In Pool A, Good888 with 294 points, and Wizardman with 179 also won slots in the final. 3family6 with 285 points, won the wildcard slot. We also had one withdrawal, due to outside-of-Wikipedia priorities. Congrats to all!

Although there were just 8 competitors, more reviews were conducted this round than in any other round—148, which demonstrates the commitment and enthusiasm of our participants. The most successful competitors, like in all previous rounds, reviewed articles that languished in the queue at GAC for at least five months (worth 18 points). The Boat Race articles were popular review choices again, with almost 20% of the articles reviewed this month.

In other news, we received another report from GA statistics page maintainer User:AmericanLemming. See here [2] for his take on the effect the GA Cup has had on Good Article reviews. He believes that we've made a real difference. AmericanLemming says: "As you can see, ...the GA Cup has done wonders when it comes to getting the oldest nominations reviewed much sooner thanks to the system whereby you get the most points for reviewing the oldest articles." Everyone involved with this competition, especially the competitors, should be very proud of what we've been able to accomplish!

The Final will start on February 1 at 0:00:01 UTC and end on February 26 at 23:59:59 UTC with a winner being crowned. Information about the Final can be found here.

Good luck to all our finalists!

Cheers from Dom497, TheQ Editor and Figureskatingfan.

2014-2015 GA Cup Wrap-Up[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup - Finals/Wrap-Up
Symbol support vote.svg

The inaugural GA Cup is now over! The competition officially ended Thursday. Congrats to everyone who participated, and especially to our finalists.

The winner of the 2014/2015 GA Cup is Jaguar! He earned an impressive 615 points, despite only being a wildcard in the Round 4. The key to Jaguar's success seemed to be reviewing lots of articles as well as reviewer the oldest nominations; he reviewed 39 nominations in this round. Overall, the key to everyone's success was reviewing articles that had been in the queue for at least three months, which was true throughout the competition. In second place was Wizardman, with 241 points, and following close behind in third place was Good888, with 211 points. Congrats!

Although there were a couple of bumps along the way, the judges have thoroughly enjoyed managing this competition. We hope that the participants had fun as well. The GA Cup was a resounding success, and that's due to all of you. The judges sincerely thank each and every participant, and for the editors who were willing to subject their articles to this process. We learned a lot. For example, we learned that even with meticulous planning, it's impossible to anticipate every problem. We learned that the scoring system we set up wasn't always the most effective. The enthusiasm and motivation of Wikipedians is awesome, and we enjoyed watching what was sometimes fierce competition. We look forward to the second GA Cup later this year.

We reached many of our goals. See here for GA Cup statistics. We made a big difference, especially in shortening the length of time articles spend in the queue, and in reducing the backlog. Overall, 578 nominations were reviewed throughout the competition and a total of 8,184 points were awarded. Everyone involved should be very proud of what we've accomplished through the GA Cup. Stay tuned for more information about our next competition.

There will be some much-needed changes made in the scoring system next time. We appreciate your feedback, and commit to seriously consider it. If you haven't already, please fill out the feedback form here. If you're interested in being a judge in our second GA Cup, please let one of our judges know or click on the tab found in the feedback form.

Again, thanks to all and congratulations to our winners!
