Speedy deletion nomination of Leigh Riddick[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Leigh Riddick requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a real person or group of people that does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.

May 2019[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but you removed a speedy deletion tag from a page you have created yourself.

This will allow you to make your case on the talk page. Administrators will consider your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. Thank you.

Your article.[edit]

Hey, just wanted to say that I appreciate the attempt at the article. I don't see how she meets the requirements though. The one source provided is not a 3rd party source and while she appears to be quite competent but not notable enough to have a stand alone article. Am I missing something that qualifies her to WP:PROF? You cited it in your first edit summary but the reason escapes me. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 19:51, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi. In my opinion, she clears WP:PROF#1 by having three papers with over 100 citations. Thsmi002 (talk)
That seems like a low bar of notability, is that a normal thresh-hold or is it a subjective judgement? I'm open to the possibility I'm wrong that's why I'm asking. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 20:01, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.18[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Thsmi002,

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

Niharika Kohli, a product manager for the growth team, announced that work is underway in implementing improvements to New Page Patrol as part of the 2019 Community Wishlist and suggests all who are interested watch the project page on meta. Two requested improvements have already been completed. These are:

  • Allow filtering by no citations in page curation
  • Not having CSD and PRODs automatically marked as reviewed, reflecting current consensus among reviewers and current Twinkle functionality.
Reliable Sources for NPP

Rosguill has been compiling a list of reliable sources across countries and industries that can be used by new page patrollers to help judge whether an article topic is notable or not. At this point further discussion is needed about if and how this list should be used. Please consider joining the discussion about how this potentially valuable resource should be developed and used.

Backlog drive coming soon

Look for information on the an upcoming backlog drive in our next newsletter. If you'd like to help plan this drive, join in the discussion on the New Page Patrol talk page.

Creating articles[edit]

Thank you for making the article for Lauv's song "Drugs & the Internet", but the correct capitalisation is with a lower-case t. Please see MOS:CT and WP:NCMDAB. Your article has been moved to the correct place. Thank you. Ss112 14:58, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

@Ss112: Thanks for your help! Thsmi002 (talk) 02:34, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Leirion Gaylor Baird not exactly an Academic of Oxford[edit]

I've got a COI with Leirion Gaylor Baird, so I'm not going to edit more than what I considered bare factual stuff. However, I wanted to suggest to you a change from Academics of the University of Oxford to Alumni of the University of Oxford. The former is more people who are faculty at Oxford or alumni who are in academic careers, while the latter is just the bucket of everyone with a degree. Gaylor Baird is not a professor or professional academic, whether at Oxford or no. Triplingual (talk) 02:10, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

@Triplingual: Good catch, I made the switch! Thanks, Thsmi002 (talk) 02:34, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
