WikiCup 2011 July newsletter


We are half way through the penultimate round of this year's WikiCup; there is less than a month to go before we have our final 8. Our pool leaders are New Zealand Adabow (submissions) (Pool A, 189 points) and Russia PresN (submissions) (Pool B, 165 points). The number of points required to reach the next round is not clear at this time; there are some users who still do not have any recorded points. Please remember to update your submissions' pages promptly. In addition, congratulations to PresN, who scored the first featured topic points in the competition for his work on Thatgamecompany related articles. Most points this round generally have, so far, come from good articles, with only one featured article (White-bellied Sea Eagle, from Scotland Casliber (submissions)) and two featured lists (Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story, from PresN and Grammy Award for Best Native American Music Album, from Flag of Portland, Oregon.svg Another Believer (submissions)). Points for Did You Know and good article reviews round out the scoring. No points have been awarded for In the News, good topics or featured pictures this round, and no points for featured sounds or portals have been awarded in the entire competition. On an unrelated note, preparation will be beginning soon for next year's WikiCup- watch this space!

There is little else to be said beyond the usual. Please list anything you need reviewing on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews, so others following the WikiCup can help, and please do help if you can by providing reviews for the articles listed there. However, please remember to continue to offer reviews generally at GAC, FAC and all the other pages that require them to prevent any backlogs which could otherwise be caused by the Cup- points are, of course, offered for reviews at GAC. Two final notes: Firstly, please remember to state your participation in the WikiCup when nominating articles at FAC. Finally, some WikiCup-related statistics can be seen here and here. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup and the judges are reachable on their talk pages, or by email. Good luck!

I have a question regarding Portal:Chandigarh. I notice that you are one of two members of WP:Wikiproject Chandigarh, although the other editor hasn't edited in about a month. I felt you might be the best person to ask, you feel that Portal:Chandigarh is a useful page? I see that it was create by User:Maheshkumaryadav, a use whom I mentored and who has since been banned from Wikipedia for socking to avoid strict community sanctions. I don't generally use portals (I don't find the need for a tertiary level of navigation on Wikipedia), so I wonder if you have any opinion about that page. Do you think you or any other editors might be interested in growing and maintaining it? If not, I can nominate it for deletion, as it is already becoming a bit out of date (as some of the articles Mahesh added have since been deleted for a variety of reasons). Thanks for your help.

Where have you to taken the files/image from ? It seems that you have declared that you are the copyright holder of those images and hence released them to free license (eg: File:AbdusSalam Blackpen Autograph.jpg)? You cannot do the same if you have taken it from somewhere -- Tinu Cherian - 07:31, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
These images are from my personal / family collection of autographs. Hindustanilanguage (talk) 08:51, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

I am not sure whether it is inappropriate unless there is no clear consensus or the admin is the nominator of ITN/creator of the article. Nevertheless, your opinion is noted. Thanks -- Tinu Cherian - 13:37, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
