Page Curation newsletter

Hey Thompson.matthew. This will be, if not our final newsletter, one of the final ones :). After months of churning away at this project, our final version (apart from a few tweaks and bugfixes) is now live. Changes between this and the last release include deletion tag logging, a centralised log, and fixes to things like edit summaries.

Hopefully you like what we've done with the place; suggestions for future work on it, complaints and bugs to the usual address :). We'll be holding a couple of office hours sessions, which I hope you'll all attend. Many thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 11:05, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

(People in Vijayawada dont know there are Good IT Companies in VIJAYAWADA). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lazydragonfist (talkcontribs) 15:52, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

It fails WP:CSD#A7, it doesn't explain why it is important or significant. Please read this and always remember the golden rule. Matthew Thompson talk to me bro! 21:46, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

User:Kannan29

Given the template spamming he's received, and the overall failure of everyone to follow WP:BITE, I'm not inclined to aggravate the situation. Better to be nice to newcomers, who don't understand how Wikipedia works. WilyD 07:12, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

  • Well, I SALTed it, and left a short message, but once a user talk is a wall of templates, I can't focus enough to read it. WilyD 07:17, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

Welcome from STiki!

Lick granuloma

Hi Matt, I am a semi-retired veterinarian. I thought I would spend a few months updating some wiki articles on pet health topics. Some are good, but some are not science or evidence-based. This morning, I added a sentence to an article on Wikipedia concerning why dogs lick themselves excessively. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lick_granuloma Some form of automatic program then deleted my revision. It seemed that they interpreted it as some form of vandalism. Might you explain to me why that was and how I might go about preventing a similar incident in the future. Best wishes, Ron Hines DVM PhD — Preceding unsigned comment added by Caralampio2 (talkcontribs) 15:34, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi. First, you can view the contents of your edit here . Try adding it again and see what happens. I don't think ClueBot will revert it again -- but you might want to check the response on the Help Desk, and see some things such as sourcing etc. Next, report it and it will get added to a review interface, where people like me will verify it and use it to train the bot. Matthew Thompson talk to me bro! 22:22, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you for taking the time to participate in my RfA. I hope that I will be able to improve based on the feedback I received and become a better editor. AutomaticStrikeout 03:44, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Page Curation newsletter - closing up!

Hey all :).

We're (very shortly) closing down this development cycle for Page Curation. It's genuinely been a pleasure to talk with you all and build software that is so close to my own heart, and also so effective. The current backlog is 9 days, and I've never seen it that low before.

However! Closing up shop does not mean not making any improvements. First-off, this is your last chance to give us a poke about unresolved bugs or report new ones on the talkpage. If something's going wrong, we want to know about it :). Second, we'll hopefully be taking another pass over the software next year. If you've got ideas for features Page Curation doesn't currently have, stick them here.

Again, it's been an honour. Thanks :). Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 12:11, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Not happy, if those things made me happy I'd be a sad person. The article didn't conform with Wikipedia's notability guideline and was therefore removed. There was consensus at the AFD page. Sorry. Matthew Thompson talk to me bro! 18:34, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

This is not a newsletter

This is just a tribute.

Anyway. You're getting this note because you've participated in discussion and/or asked for updates to either the Article Feedback Tool or Page Curation. This isn't about either of those things, I'm afraid ;p. We've recently started working on yet another project: Echo, a notifications system to augment the watchlist. There's not much information at the moment, because we're still working out the scope and the concepts, but if you're interested in further updates you can sign up here.

In addition, we'll be holding an office hours session at 21:00 UTC on Wednesday, 14 November in #wikimedia-office - hope to see you all there :). I appreciate it's an annoying time for non-Europeans: if you're interested in chatting about the project but can't make it, give me a shout and I can set up another session if there's enough interest in one particular timezone or a skype call if there isn't. Thanks! Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 11:25, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open!

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

Yarloop, Western Australia

Hi there.Thompson.matthew.
Are you sure that the 3 missing persons have been found? The source I used appeared to be dated today,[1] and is constantly being updated but the one saying they were found [2] is dated late yesterday?

• I said "Over 120 homes" because it is likely to change, and we shouldn't really be updating every time it changes per WP:Notnews. Right now it seems to be up to 131 per the perthnow.com.au source I used. And it still says 3 missing?220 of Borg 06:31, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

G'day, the three residents were found, it was on the news last night. Obviously that isn't verifiable, but here is the source I added which also provides that information. If the number of houses is constantly changes, then I agree. It was my understanding that was a somewhat final figure that had been released (also see that article). Feel free to revert anything you feel is incorrect. Cheers, Matthew Thompson talk to me bro! 06:35, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
Nah, it's all sourced so I'll just sit back and let it sort itself out. Your source is dated yesterday though whereas [3] is constantly being updated (maybe that's not good in the long run?). I assumed that the original 3 people had been found (as I heard that too), and another 3 were missing. It's just wasteful of time (and annoying to do) to update every time a figure changes, especially with a current, fast changing or ongoing event. (and I should be doing other things than editing WP right now! Smiley emoticons doh.gif)
Happy New Year & Happy Editing!220 of Borg 06:49, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
You know what - you're right. Apparently reports are conflicting. I'm going to rev my edits pending this being sorted out. Brilliant catch! Damn media... Matthew Thompson talk to me bro! 06:51, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
Now saying 4 (FOUR) people missing! Face-surprise.svg (and I hope they are found safe!) Another problem is that often more than one page needs updating, and once one is changed, then it's pretty much obligatory to keep WP internally consistent! i.e. Yarloop and 2015–16 Australian bushfire season#January 2016 (and if the fire had its own page, that too) So a pain in the a$$. 220 of Borg 07:13, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
Instead of {{talkback}}s, on a talk page try using {{ping}} anywhere to get editors attention. A bit less work perhaps? 220 of Borg 07:27, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
@220 of Borg: that's fantastic - had no idea. Awesome! Cheers. Matthew Thompson talk to me bro! 07:30, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
And I just noticed it comes up in red on your 'Alerts' (little bell) in the notification area, so more noticeable! nb. {{u|Thompson.matthew}} appearing as Thompson.matthew has a similar effect. See WP:UTM for more interesting templates. 220 of Borg 07:50, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
Cheers 220 of Borg, I'll check that out. Matthew Thompson talk to me bro! 08:21, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
uh oh, @220 of Borg: , initial reports say bodies have been found (ABC in Facebook.  :( Matthew Thompson talk to me bro! 11:46, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
Yeh, just heard that on 2GB myself. Speedy IP editor has already updated the 2015–16 Australian bushfire season page. 220 of Borg 11:56, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
• "Wikipedia:Australian Wikipedians' notice board#Waroona Fires" may be of interest. Likely there will soon be a page about this fire, once a name can be settled on. Just noticed you are in WA. Not in the south west I hope? 220 of Borg 12:15, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
@220 of Borg: luckily no - but I've been there. So unfortunate that there's practically nothing there. Matthew Thompson talk to me bro! 15:08, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
Have any pictures to add to commons? The fire is also being discussed at WP:ITN/C for a Main Page appearance. The only place I've been that was then destroyed by fire was Mount Stromlo Observatory near Canberra. Surprising how it emphasises the danger when you see the aftermath, even just pictures as I haven't been back there. However, I live near Royal National Park so fire blackened trees, and the sight/smell of bushfire smoke is not new to me. 220 of Borg 16:13, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
@220 of Borg: sorry for long reply - pics would be long gone, didn't save them on my new HDD. I might go down when Police reopen road for some creative commons snaps of the town - or what's left of it. Matthew Thompson talk to me bro! 14:35, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

CSD

Hello @Thompson.matthew: Can you please tell me if Db-person is an appropriate tag for Althea Shahmay Campaner Noel.--Satdeep Gill (talkcontribs 09:30, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

@Satdeep Gill: absolutely is - nothing on that page is a credible claim of significance. Significance is easier to show than nobility - however being a 'good photographer' and person who impresses a primary school class is not significant. If, however, it said she had sung on a notable talent contest, or a notable photography or educational award - it would be a claim of significance.

Speedy deletion my page

Hello Dear Thompson Matthew, This is Amreesh Kumar Aarya,I want to discuss about why my page is deleted and how to retrieve the my page. My page title-Shri Devkinandan Thakur Maharaj Ji. Please reply ASAP. Regard & Thanks Amreesh Kumar Aarya — Preceding unsigned comment added by Amreesh Kumar Aarya (talkcontribs) 17:14, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

@Amreesh Kumar Aarya: Hello. The page was deleted in accordance with Wikipedia's deletion policy. Certain articles are unsuitable for inclusion on Wikipedia. Specifically, the page was deleted per section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Put simply, you created a biographical article, but did not in that article specify why the subject was important or significant, that is, why should the article be inside an encyclopedia. It is this reason that an article cannot be put on Wikipedia about any living person, the person must be important or significant in some way. Additionally, to the subject must be notable to avoid deletion. If you need help creating an article, please click here for more information. Feel free to let me know if you need any more assistance, or place {{helpme}} along with your question on your talk page. Cheers, Matthew Thompson talk to me! 07:13, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

INSTITUTE_OF_COMPANY_SECRETARIES_OF_INDIA

I'm pretty sure the intention of that "no educations institutions" is meant to cover high schools and colleges. Not for-profit Indian corporations that pad their student body count and use Wikipedia for advertising.--v/r - TP 05:10, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

@TParis:. I was wondering that, but given it was a statutory corporation and technically covered by the 'educational institution' ambit, I felt inclined to AGF. Oh well. I was wondering what else to tag it as, due to it not being appropriate. Thanks, Matthew Thompson talk to me! 05:11, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Well, it has a .EDU and that's the only thing that gave me pause. But I'm willing to lean towards "CSD:G14: Any article created by a new user from India with a company name IN ALL CAPS claiming to have legal status." But, jokes aside, I think G11 might've applied too.--v/r - TP 05:14, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
The other thing I was contemplating tagging it as. It's tough with the 'only an infobox' articles. Thanks, Matthew Thompson talk to me! 05:15, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
I was the original person who tagged the page, and it was hard for me to understand what kind of education institution it was even after a Google search. However I agree with implementing CSD:G14, its one of the issues causing the patrol backlog! /s Cheers, Meiloorun (talk) 🍁 05:19, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

New Page Reviewer

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Thompson.matthew. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group, allowing you to review new pages and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or in some cases, tag them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is a vital function for policing the quality of the encylopedia, if you have not already done so, you must read the new tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the various deletion criteria. If you need more help or wish to discuss the process, please join or start a thread at page reviewer talk.

  • URGENT: Please consider helping get the huge backlog (around 15,000 pages) down to a manageable number of pages as soon as possible.
  • Be nice to new users - they are often not aware of doing anything wrong.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted - be formal and polite in your approach to them too, even if they are not.
  • Don't review a page if you are not sure what to do. Just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Remember that quality is quintessential to good patrolling. Take your time to patrol each article, there is no rush. Use the message feature and offer basic advice.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In case of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, the right can be revoked at any time by an administrator. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 20:03, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Re: Internet Exploder

Sorry. I only did that because I saw another misspelling (Taco Hell) get deleted because it was an attack page. Colgatepony234 (talk) 04:32, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

  • @Colgatepony234: That appears to have been deleted for vandalism. The standard for an attack page is quite high (see, WP:G10.) I rarely see them applied to non-BLP articles - think "the point at which the entity is likely to sue for libel" sort of level. Usually they should also be courtesy blanked as well. One should be very careful before applying it to an old article/redirect that's been edited by established editors - probably best sent to XfD (in this case, RfD). Cheers, Matthew Thompson talk to me! 16:59, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

New Page Review - newsletter No.2

Hello Thompson.matthew,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
A HUGE backlog

We now have 467 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.

Abuse

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

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.

Still a MASSIVE backlog
