Changing speedy deletion tags placed by others[edit]

Hello. Please stop changing speedy deletion tags, because your edits are not helpful. All three of the tags you just changed had additional information in them, information that is valuable for the admins who delete the pages, but that you removed. Thank you. - Tom | Thomas.W talk 22:21, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Stop icon This is your only warning; if you vandalize Wikipedia again, as you did at Interstate 24 in Illinois, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. L3X1 (distant write) 02:12, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Achilles Radial[edit]

I've removed the speedy deletion tag you placed on Achilles Radial. The article was not overtly promotional, and made a credible assertion of notability as "one of the largest tire manufacturers in Indonesia." If you feel the article needs to be deleted, please take it to AFD. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 18:02, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Sort keys on US 8 article[edit]

The default sort key is "US008", but you've been overriding that. The default is correct because sort keys sort alphabetically, not numerically. For example, if we just used "U.S. Route 8" as the sort key, it would come after "U.S. Route 61" because when you work alphabetically, the sorting algorithm see the "U.S. Route " part as the same, and when it looks at the next character to break the tie, the "6" comes before the "8". However, if we use "US008" and "US061" as sort keys, after looking at the "US0", the next character would be either a "0" or a "6", giving the tiebreaker to "US008" over "US061". Imzadi 1979  14:50, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

Sort keys[edit]

Take a look at this edit for a better way to do what you're doing. The DEFAULTSORT was set to "91" so that the "Interstate Highways in <state>" categories didn't have to have that sort key set, however, if you changed the DEFAULTSORT to "Interstate 91" and manually applied the "91" key to those three categories, you wouldn't have had to change so much, and any additional categories added will sort by "Interstate 91" in the future unless a key is specifically added. In short, it's better the way I did it over the way you're doing it. Imzadi 1979  00:50, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Thanks! That really helps! ToThAc (talk) 13:35, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Ze'ev Kesley[edit]

Hello, I declined the G4 speedy deletion of Ze'ev Kesley. Based on the article history, Ze'ev Kesley is a fictional character in The Lunar Chronicles, so the redirect is somewhat plausible. I've tagged it with {{R from character}} to make that clear. If you still think it's not a useful redirect, you can bring it to WP:RFD. Thanks. clpo13(talk) 17:25, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Greenwich Dance deletion[edit]

Please could you give me some pointers on how to improve this page? You mention that there is a single source but there are in fact more than 10 independent sources not affiliated with Greenwich Dance.

Also, you mention there's no proof of GNG, but Greenwich Dance is referred to on several other Wikipedia pages (see my other edits) and is a major dance company in London.

Any advice gratefully received. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Verity.todd (talkcontribs) 18:12, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Request on 08:55:03, 18 August 2017 for assistance on AfC submission by Henne3[edit]

I don't quite understand why the draft was denied this time. You recommended finding more "major sources", but the sites in "References" are among the biggest sports websites in Ireland and for them to take an interest in a Gaelic club abroad is remarkable. The articles on the subject go way beyond simple mentions, but feature in-depth portrayal of the club and its members. Our features on German TV and radio unfortunately have no permanent links. There are similar articles on the wiki already with fewer and weaker references.

10:32:38, 28 August 2017 review of submission by[edit]

Our article has been rejected three times even though, from our point of view, we respected all criteria. The first rejection claimed a lack of independent sources so we added newspaper articles stating Frank Jotzo's position as an environmental economist. These articles are, e.g., from the Washington Post and NY times. Frank Jotzo's research and advisory work is proven by publications from well-known international institutions totally independent of Frank Jotzo (IPCC, Garnaut Review and so on). These sources also show his notable impact in research. Other comparable Wikipedia entries have by far less independent sources (e.g. Cameron Hepburn which was the role model for our entry). If you have concerns about certain paragraphs please let us know but the sources in general are not merely news outlets. They all proof Frank Jotzo's achievements from an independent point of view.

20:34:02, 28 August 2017 review of submission by Giznej[edit]

I agree that the article should be extended, for instance be sections like "Duality" and "Applications" (and I intend to contribute here later). However, I think that "Multi-objective linear programming" should not be just a subsection of "Multi-objective Optimization". For instance, there is an article about "Mathematical Optimization" but there are also very detailed articles about important subclasses like "Linear Programming" or "Quadratic Programming". The theory about the linear case is very rich and should be explained in a separate article.

Our Submission - Researchfish -[edit]

Thanks for reviewing - we appear to be going around in circles with this one - and thought we were almost done when the feedback was that the references were in the wrong order - we have followed the major feedback and added many external references and sources.

Can you please clarify which areas of the article need to be edited to meet the minimum standard of references? Despite multiple resubmissions, the reviewers do not state specific examples, but rather keep posting the same generic message. It is difficult for the authors of this page to understand exactly why this article continues to get declined without further details provided. We would like to write this page to be in line with wiki's high standards but find it challenging with the lack of feedback on each review.

AFC thoughts[edit]

Just as a note (and yes, I'm a month late, but no one else seems to have commented on it), when you are reviewing drafts MOS or ELINK violations are not suitable reasons to decline a draft. 99% of the time the standard decline reasons will be acceptable.

AFC: International Board Game Studies Association[edit]

Hi ToThAc,

I can see you are new to Wikipedia and are still finding your feet (as confirmed by numerous posts on a on your talk page, not least those regarding AFC).

You rejected the AFC:International Board Game Studies Association because the "references do not adequately show the subject's notability".

However, if you look at the talk page for the International Board Game Studies Association AFC, you will see that a considerable number of sources been added since the submission was originally rejected on the grounds that "one source don't establish notability".

Further, the General Notability Guidelines acknowledge that sources will "vary in quality and depth of coverage [and] multiple sources are generally expected".

Moreover, on Depth of Coverage, the General Notability Guidelines state "if the depth of coverage is not substantial then multiple independent sources should be cited to establish notability"

The article is currently supported by ten references, ranging in time from 2007 to 2017.

If you could find the time to look at the article again, and also review the article's talk page, I would, indeed, be grateful.


Thanks. (talk) 20:16, 30 September 2017 (UTC)

TheCatalyst31 ReactionCreation 01:04, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
I assessed the article at only Start-Class, not C-Class even though it has all of the Big Three. The history section is too incomplete to be counted for that assessment metric. At the very least, the date or year of creation needs to be added, but frankly some semblance of a historical narrative is needed. As for the junction list, whole segments are missing with "see also" type links directing readers to fill in the blanks elsewhere. That's not really a good practice to deal with concurrencies, and it should be totally avoided. Imzadi 1979  06:11, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
I should also note that the route description is quite short of a highway of this length. I'd expect to see it much more developed before promotion to B-Class. Imzadi 1979  06:12, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

AfC: Draft:Le Tas Invisible[edit]

Hello. I came across this article at WP:TH. You declined the submission, giving poor tone as the reason. It is difficult to know exactly what your issues are, so maybe you could leave a comment on the draft, explaining exactly what you would like to be done to improve the article. I am not telling you to do so, but it will help in guiding the article's creator in terms of what to do next. It may also be a good idea to spend five minutes on the article yourself, to see if you can fix some of the more obvious issues. This would be of great help to editors involved in the development of the piece. Thank you in advance. Sb2001 02:22, 20 October 2017 (UTC)

20:38:50, 24 October 2017 review of submission by Crypto88mph[edit]


I've made a number of edits to the "Factom (Protocol)" page, with an eye towards making it sounds less like an advertisement, which was the stated reason for the initial rejection.

I should note that everything in the article is 100% factually accurate; the only opinion in the piece (which is necessarily an opinion) is the sentence "Reception of the Factom Protocol has been widespread and generally positive." While this is not technically "fact," I am convinced that anyone researching the Factom Protocol's media reception would come to the same conclusion.

As a former journalist, I am sensitive to the needs for objectivity in content such as this. I hope you find these edits meet your requirements. If not, please let me know, and I'll make any additional changes needed.


03:58:01, 26 October 2017 review of submission by Crypto88mph[edit]

I believe I've addressed the issue given for the previous rejection.

Given the confusion I've had with the reasons for the previous rejections, I would also like to clarify that I am not connected--formally or informally--with Factom. I went to the Live Chat to seek clarification for the previous rejection, and spoke with TheDragonFire, who asked me:

"Are you connected to Factom Inc?"

I responded:

"I'm an investor in their tokens, FCT. But I'm not formally or otherwise connected outside of that. I bought the tokens on an exchange, not from Factom."

TheDragonFire responded:

"Ah, okay, that's not a particularly significant conflict of interest."

The stated reason for the second rejection of this post was:

"Still relies heavily on primary sources.”

I have deleted and/or pared down some of the content associated with primary sources. I have tried to use primary sources exclusively to support claims pertaining to the technical details of the Protocol. The content derived from primary sources makes no claims to the Protocol's quality or notability. If I am mistaken, I would appreciate being directed to the particular passage.

The Wall Street Journal, MIT Technology Review,, The Irish Times, Reuters, The Economist, and International Business Times--all of whom have covered the Protocol at length--don’t generally get into the technical details of the Protocol, because that would be inappropriate for their target audience.

However I believe this page needs to cover some of the more important details related to the Protocol. As much as possible, I have tried to rely on secondary sources, but have used the white paper a number of times when the technical details were not covered by the mainstream media.

I could, theoretically, take out more references to how the Protocol works, but I don’t see how this would improve upon the credabilty/notability of the above-mentioned sources, or be of service to Wikipedia’s readers.

I appreciate your effort to safeguard the objectivity of content on Wikipedia, and I hope that the above-mentioned sources provide the required evidence of notability of the Factom Protocol.

If not, there are plenty of more quotes I can add.

Request on 17:34:09, 10 November 2017 for assistance on AfC submission by Ammay531[edit]

Hello and thanks for reviewing my page a second time. I'm a little confused about the "verifiable sources" thing again, partly because I'm dealing with a topic that is primarily discussed via blog posts. There is no research on this topic aside from a single article published in 2010. Furthermore, all of the blog posts I have included are from university writing center pages and/or people in the field. I'm not really sure if there is a workaround for this, but if I take all of that information out, the post will literally be three lines long and will exclude a lot of (what I consider) important information on the topic. Once again, I appreciate any advice/response you can give me. Thank you in advance.

Your WP:NAC of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of postal codes in Canada (2nd nomination)[edit]

I just discovered that you didn't just start the DRV on this, but you also closed a second AfD on the subject. There's multiple issues here.

  1. As I pointed out when I closed the DRV, WP:NAC is only for obvious closes. This clearly was not an open-and-shut issue, so WP:NAC did not apply.
  2. When you close an AfD, NAC or not, you're acting in an administrative capacity. One of the prime rules is that administrative actions must be unbiased. If you have an opinion on a discussion, you should not be performing administrative actions related to that discussion. Your procedural close was totally inappropriate. It would have been equally inappropriate even if you were an admin.
  3. All administrative actions should be 100% transparent. When you started the DRV, you should have recapped any previous involvement you had with the issue (i.e. your procedural close of the 2nd AfD). To hide that information is just plain wrong.
  4. Oh, wait, I just this very moment, after writing all of the above, noticed that you started the 2nd AfD. Again, you need to be striving for transparency. If you wanted to withdraw your AfD, that's fine, but make it obvious that it's your own nomination that you're withdrawing. None of this mysterious procedural NAC stuff. And, given that you started the 2nd AfD, why not just let it run its course? Why confuse things by letting it run for a couple of days then change your mind what forum you want to pursue this in? And, again, at the very least, you should have been upfront about all of your previous actions in the DRV nomination.
At this point, the least confusing and disruptive thing to do would be to just let Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of postal codes in Canada continue to its conclusion, so that's what I'm going to do. -- RoySmith (talk) 15:50, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

AFC Reviews[edit]

Hi, ToThAc, good communication skills is an integral part of AFC project.I may be horribly mistaken but your t/p seem to be full of queries by submitters of declined drafts, who haven't received any detailed talk-back/help from your end, barring one-liners and/or decline-templates in some cases.Remember that, for most of these editors, AFC and its bunch of reviewers will the only side of Wikipedia that would visible to them for a long time.Hence, it may be prudential to help the good-faith-newbies feel more welcomed to our environment.A good-start would be to use more-detailed personalized messages, while replying to your t/p queries.Thank you!Winged BladesGodric 05:20, 17 December 2017 (UTC)

Relist at 2017 washington train derailment[edit]

Kachin/jingpo Move request[edit]

Hi I noticed that you relisted the move request here

However it appears that the original requester has go ahead an made the move themselves. As someone with an interest in kachin culture and who has written a few articles on the culture, I am absolutely shocked that this has happened, as it without a doubt completly wrong. There is little evidence (in fact there is no sources presented in the request) that Kachin should be redirected to Jinghpaw. So I think that the user in question has made a unilateral decision, while bold, is incorrect and is not back up by any facts. In fact if you look at the page which is now Kachin peoples you can see sourced refs stating that Jinghpaw is a sub category of Kachin.

This change has moved Kachin people to Kachin peoples, but I can't revert that back because the old kachin people page is now a new redirect page to Jingpo.

Do you know what the procedure is for these requested moves, if the request hasn't been closed by an admin yet. Is it possible to do a revert?Egaoblai (talk) 22:08, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

@Egaoblai: Unfortunately, I don't have expertise in the subject and simply relisted it because it was malformed for about a week, therefore there was no participation in general. However, this section might be helpful, as it details the discussion regarding the subject. Cheers. ToThAc (talk) 23:06, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
thanks, I've seen that discussion and the only person who suggests the move is one person ten years ago and person who made the current move today. as I can't revert this, I think my best option is to request an admin close on the current discussion, which in my mind does not approach a quorum or a consensus needed to move.Egaoblai (talk) 23:58, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi - I don't understand your comment re the One With Life Organic Tequila article. "The lead is 'very promotional". It seems to be substantially similar to many of the the other tequila's on the list page except that this article has numerous independent sources cited to verify the info.

Your RM close[edit]

Hi. I cannot make sense of your close of Talk:Winesburg, Ohio (town)#Requested move 10 January 2018, and I think it goes contrary to WP:RMCI#Determining consensus on a number of levels. Everyone in the discussion knew that Winesburg, Ohio is a book, not a town. The disagreement lied whether that should cause the populated place of Winesburg not to follow the WP:USPLACE conventions, where four posters (counting the nominator) thought it should not, and two thought it should, and everyone based their opinion on policy and precedent. I don't think that your close sufficiently addressed the issue to keep the article at the present location. Please consider reopening the discussion. No such user (talk) 13:23, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

I came here to make the same points the above editor did, and discovered them already well-made. The issue under discussion was the fact that the current title of the article misleadingly refers to the unincorporated community as a "town", and presented a way to fix it. The fact that the book is the primary name is accepted by everyone and is not really relevant to the current issue. I agree that it would be best if the discussion were reopened. --Ken Gallager (talk) 13:45, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

I'd also suggest vacating your close Galobtter (pingó mió) 14:40, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

Ken Gallager, while I appreciate your concern, did you see the previous RM close before you contacted me? ToThAc (talk) 22:23, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing that out, but it doesn't change my argument. I don't believe that editor knew that there was a problem with the word "town" in the title. I've tried to address that in my proposal. --Ken Gallager (talk) 22:56, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

Relisting in RMs[edit]

Reminder that there is no quorum required to make a move - that is, if there is one support and no oppose then you can usually do the move unless you think it would be controversial/the rationale isn't good. Also, shouldn't relist discussions with a lot of participation as those should usually be closed one way or the other/or no consensus. I'd recommend slowing down on the relists and focusing more on closing the discussions. Galobtter (pingó mió) 04:57, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

I'd also recommend re-reading WP:RMCLOSE, especially the portion about determining consensus/when to relist. Galobtter (pingó mió) 05:02, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
Also "In general, discussions should not be relisted more than once before properly closing." So don't relist twice unless you really can explain why. Galobtter (pingó mió) 05:25, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
Also for example Talk:Vikings_(TV_series)#Requested_move_13_January_2018 didn't need relisting since there was already lots of discussion, and the consensus or lack thereof should be determined instead. Galobtter (pingó mió) 07:21, 26 January 2018 (UTC)
@Galobtter: That isn't a good example, as the mentioned RM was actually heavily controversial and no one can agree on what to do. (Additionally, it's only been relisted once.) ToThAc (talk) 14:29, 26 January 2018 (UTC)
Relisting once is the usual max; if no one can agree on what to do, then it is no consensus closure then? Isn't it. (suggest leaving more complicated ones alone until you get some more experience with closures) Relisting more didn't invite more comments, so it is utterly pointless. Galobtter (pingó mió) 14:31, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Clarification request on comment[edit]

follow up on the following comment re the proposed One With Life Organic Tequila article - Comment: By that I mean that you have to remove terms like "certified organic", "certified kosher", and "100%". With all due respect, I still am not sure I understand. The terms you suggest to be removed are all factual and can be independently sourced. Furthermore, the very same terms are currently utilized in the lead invnumerous other articles of brands in the article "List of Tequilas"

a quick review of these articles (and I only went through the beginning of the letter H reveals the following articles using similar terms. In light of this, please explain why these terms should be removed from the article in question and not from numerous other similar articles?

1800 Tequila - 100% blue agave

1519 Tequila - Certified Organic Tequila by both USDA[1] and "European Union". that also certified KosherPareve[2] by Orthodox Union.

4 Copas - which uses sustainable organic methods. The company also participates in the supporting of Sea Turtle Restoration Project an Organization dedicated to research and support of conservation of Sea Turtles,[2][3]

Arette Tequila is only made from 100% Estate Agave.

Avion - from the Agave grown in the highest elevations.[1] Tequila Avión has won multiple awards in 2011 and 2012 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Casa Dragonesis a handcrafted, small batch, luxury tequila producer

casa noble - It is a CCOF certified organic tequila.

Chaya - from 100% Blue Agave

DeLeón Tequila is certified as 100% blue weber agave tequila.

Herradura 100% agave. Philacevedo (talk) 11:36, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

@Philacevedo: Seriously, "100%" is promotional and flowery. It makes it sound like it's actually "100%" even though there's some imperfections. I suggest you read WP:PEACOCK before messaging me again. ToThAc (talk) 19:56, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Upon your request I have reviewed the article you referenced[edit]

I appreciate the seriousness with which you have undertaken your editing responsibilities, but if you would kindly indulge me by reviewing the following material related to the certification process of Tequila:

Tequila's are subject to a rigorous certification process. The Mexican government has accredited the Tequila Regulatory Council (CRT) with the authority to verify and police the standards and certifications of tequila. The Mexican Official Standard for Tequila is NOM-006-SCFI-1994, Bebidas alcohólicas- Tequila-Especificaciones (NOM).

One of the main provisions of NOM-006-SFI-1994, provides the classifications of tequila's. There are those classified as "100% Agave Tequilas" and those classified as "Tequila".

Those Tequila's meeting the rigorous certifications receive a NOM and are labeled as 100% Agave or 100% Agave Azure. Such classification or labeling is not promotional or flowery, but the result of observance with strict requirements to ensure the integrity of the product. Specifically:

The classification between Tequila 100% Agave, made from 100% agave sap, and Tequila, a category produced with 51% of agave sap and up to 49% other sugars.

DuckTales: Remastered GA nomination[edit]

ToThAc, thank you for your interest in the GAN process. For future reference, when you are thinking about nominating an article for GA that you haven't made a significant contribution to, as in DuckTales: Remastered, the GAN instructions say that you need to consult on the article's talk page to see whether people think that it needs more work (or conversely, that it's ready to be nominated).

As you can see by what happened today, the reaction may be that it is not ready, and it is not uncommon in such a situation, if the nomination has been made without consultation by an editor not significantly involved in the article, that it is reverted on the spot. You may wish to review the GA criteria to see what is expected of nominated articles, whether your own or the product of other editors, and why in this case the article fell short. Best of luck with any future GA nominations, and remember that if you do make a nomination, you are effectively making a commitment to address any issues that may arise in the course of the review.

Hi, I've noticed that you are an AfC reviewer but don't yet have the New Page Reviewer flag. Can you please head over to PERM and request it? Please mention that you are an active AfC reviewer in your application.
As part of a larger plan to increase cooperation between New Page Patrol and Articles for creation, we are trying to get as many of the active AfC reviewers as possible under the NPR user flag (per this discussion). Unlike the AfC request list, the NPR flag carries no obligation to review new articles, so I'm not asking you to help out at New Page Patrol if you don't want to, just to request the flag.
Of course, if NPP is something you would be interested in, you can have a look at the NPP tutorial.

New page reviewer granted[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello ToThAc. 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 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) 15:02, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Word joiner[edit]

I think you made a mistake at WP:AFC/R. The HTML entity reference gets converted into a single character that doesn't include #. If &#82​88; actually included the # character, it wouldn't be possible to make a link to the word joiner character; word joiner would take you to the 8288; section of the & article. &#8288 is a blue link, even though there is no 8288 section on that page; because word joiner is a red link, you can tell that it won't take you to the ⁠ section of &.

  • WP:ACREQ has been implemented. The flow at the feed has dropped back to the levels during the trial. However, the backlog is on the rise again so please consider reviewing a few extra articles each day; a backlog approaching 5,000 is still far too high. An effort is also needed to ensure that older unsuitable older pages at the back of the queue do not get automatically indexed for Google.

Deletion tags

  • Do bear in mind that articles in the feed showing the trash can icon may have been tagged by inexperienced or non NPR rights holders. They require your further verification.

Backlog drive:

  • A backlog drive will take place from 10 through 20 June. Check out our talk page at WT:NPR for more details. NOTE: It is extremely important that we focus on quality reviewing. Despite our goal of reducing the backlog as much as possible, please do not rush while reviewing.


  • There will be a large increase in the number of editathons in June. Please be gentle with new pages that obviously come from good faith participants, especially articles from developing economies and ones about female subjects. Consider using the 'move to draft' tool rather than bluntly tagging articles that may have potential but which cannot yet reside in mainspace.

Paid editing - new policy

  • Now that ACTRIAL is ACREQ, please be sure to look for tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary. There is a new global WMF policy that requires paid editors to connect to their adverts.

Subject-specific notability guidelines

  • The box at the right contains each of the subject-specific notability guidelines, please review any that are relevant BEFORE nominating an article for deletion.
  • Reviewers are requested to familiarise themselves with the new version of the notability guidelines for organisations and companies.

Not English

  • A common issue: Pages not in English or poor, unattributed machine translations should not reside in main space even if they are stubs. Please ensure you are familiar with WP:NPPNE. Check in Google for the language and content, tag as required, then move to draft if they do have potential.


  • Development is underway by the WMF on upgrades to the New Pages Feed, in particular ORES features that will help to identify COPYVIOs, and more granular options for selecting articles to review.
  • The next issue of The Signpost has been published. The newspaper is one of the best ways to stay up to date with news and new developments. between our newsletters.

Request on 14:49:59, 25 May 2018 for assistance on AfC submission by Dimahagever[edit]

Recently i submitted an article to wikipedia,based on the official site of the government of Canada.Yet you have declined it from the reason that i based it on only one Source material without even reading it and comparing it to the source. I would like you to renew the article,as it is based on official source (the site mentioned), and an unofficial (wikipedia page of the Crisis in Ukraine)

Draft:U.S. Route 460 in Kentucky[edit]

Hello there,

I was looking through draftspace when I found the above page. I see you created it a while back. Are you likely to come back to it in the near future? Some wikipedians (like myself) dislike having pages sit in the Draft namespace without any improvements being done on them. It appears there isn't a whole lot of interest in this page. Would you be open to bringing it to your Userspace? Would you be open to having it reviewed by an experienced editor who can tell you what is necessary in order for it to be promoted to mainspace? If neither of these options works for you we might be forced to go about deleting the work as the Draft space is intended for active development of future Wikipedia articles.

I have unreviewed a page you curated[edit]

Hi, I'm Akhiljaxxn. I wanted to let you know that I saw the page you reviewed, Worth It ( Youtube Program ), and have un-reviewed it again. If you have any questions, please ask them on my talk page. Thank you.

Proposed deletion of Fallen Planet Studios[edit]


The article Fallen Planet Studios has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails notability guidelines at WP:COMPANY. Some of their projects may be notable but that doesn't translate into notability for the company (WP:INHERITORG).

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Ifnord (talk) 20:51, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Nomination of Fallen Planet Studios for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Fallen Planet Studios is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Fallen Planet Studios until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 21:09, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Draft:Peace Treaty on Korean Peninsula[edit]

Thank you for your previous assistance about ARC: Inter-Korean House of Freedom. I created another article: Draft:Peace Treaty on Korean Peninsula. Please review the article and let me know whether there is any improvement of the article contents or reference if possible. Goodtiming8871 (talk) 05:16, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

I was wondering why it take more time for reviewing this topic as Inter-Korean House of Freedom was accepted quickly. Goodtiming8871 (talk) 06:46, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Chart of the New Pages Patrol backlog for the past 6 months. (Purge)

Hello ToThAc, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

June backlog drive

Overall the June backlog drive was a success, reducing the last 3,000 or so to below 500. However, as expected, 90% of the patrolling was done by less than 10% of reviewers.
Since the drive closed, the backlog has begun to rise sharply again and is back up to nearly 1,400 already. Please help reduce this total and keep it from raising further by reviewing some articles each day.

New technology, new rules
  • New features are shortly going to be added to the Special:NewPagesFeed which include a list of drafts for review, OTRS flags for COPYVIO, and more granular filter preferences. More details can be found at this page.
  • Probationary permissions: Now that PERM has been configured to allow expiry dates to all minor user rights, new NPR flag holders may sometimes be limited in the first instance to 6 months during which their work will be assessed for both quality and quantity of their reviews. This will allow admins to accord the right in borderline cases rather than make a flat out rejection.
  • Current reviewers who have had the flag for longer than 6 months but have not used the permissions since they were granted will have the flag removed, but may still request to have it granted again in the future, subject to the same probationary period, if they wish to become an active reviewer.
  • Editathons will continue through August. Please be gentle with new pages that obviously come from good faith participants, especially articles from developing economies and ones about female subjects. Consider using the 'move to draft' tool rather than bluntly tagging articles that may have potential but which cannot yet reside in mainspace.
The Signpost
  • The next issue of the monthly magazine will be out soon. The newspaper is an excellent way to stay up to date with news and new developments between our newsletters. If you have special messages to be published, or if you would like to submit an article (one about NPR perhaps?), don't hesitate to contact the editorial team here.

National varieties of English[edit]

Information icon Hello. In a recent edit to the page The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, you changed one or more words or styles from one national variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For a subject exclusively related to the United Kingdom (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to another English-speaking country, such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, India, or Pakistan use the variety of English used there. For an international topic, use the form of English that the original author of the article used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to another, even if you don't normally use the version in which the article is written. Respect other people's versions of English. They, in turn, should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Manual of Style. If you have any questions about this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit the help desk. Thank you. - FlightTime (open channel) 18:25, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

Hello ToThAc, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).
