You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 17:32, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Primo Brewing & Malting Company[edit]

Aloha, seems to have survived deletion-ites so far, congratulations. Even though I grew up in Milwaukee, never became a beer connoisseur. But seems notable enough. Obvious suggestions: decorate with a picture. I can do a quick look in the usual places for a pre-copyright one, or you could snap their office-front if it is photogenic, or take a picture of of a label and hope we can justify with fair use. Rewrite the timeline list as prose. Expand refs to use cite templates. I have not found a general tool for web links; I do use the google books one (and then hand edit the result, but it still saves time). Generally the tool needs to be specific to the source to dig out title, date, work, etc. because they all use different conventions (so much for HTML meta-data standards). There is a New York Times one, for example (although I just tried it and does not seem to work for historical articles that I use). To be honest I usually just grab a previous one from the same source, paste, and then edit the fields. I suppose one could do, say, a "Honolulu Advertiser tool" that parses out the info from their pages which would work for all of those. But they of course changed all their web conventions (invalidating many refs) recently when the Star-Bulletin merged. I will convert one or two to give some examples.

Red links on disambiguation pages[edit]

Nice work creating Kahana Bay. However, your edit summaries referred to wp:red. However, the applicable guideline for disambiguation pages is at WP:DABRL. There is specialized guidance for disambiguation pages because they are primarily navigational pages and not articles. Disambiguation pages are intended to disambiguate existing articles, which is why there is criteria for inclusion of redlinks on disambiguation pages and why external links and references are not appropriate on disambiguation pages. olderwiser 22:18, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

So is it then appropriate to just delete an item on a DAB page because there isn't an article associated with it?--Travis Thurston+ 22:45, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
If there are no other incoming links and no other article that mentions the subject, yes -- there is nothing in Wikipedia to be disambiguated. olderwiser 02:39, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
I'm just not a fan of deleting items when it takes a minute to create a stub, add some internal links and de-orphan an article. No harm, not foul... thanks for the feedback. --Travis Thurston+ 04:59, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine[edit]

I have restored the article and moved it to your user space at User:Travisthurston/Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. when you have done the necessary removal of information useful only to a prospective student and general information about the merits of naturopathic medicine, you're free to move it back to mainspace. If you encounter any technical difficulty, let me know. DGG ( talk ) 20:57, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Talk:List of YouTube personalities#RfC: The criteria for inclusion on List of YouTube personalities[edit]

Hi Travis.Thurston. Because you participated in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of YouTube celebrities (4th nomination), you may be interested in Talk:List of YouTube personalities#RfC: The criteria for inclusion on List of YouTube personalities. There are disputes over who should and who shouldn't be included in the list. Cunard (talk) 23:09, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Sims Snowboards[edit]

Hello Travis. In December 2010 you created a new article - Sims Snowboards. Your new page was not patrolled within 30 days and recently has had a "New Unreviewed Article" banner attached to it. Today I reviewed the article and removed the banner.
I consider that your article does not demonstrate that the subject, Sims Snowboards, has sufficient notability to warrant its own article on Wikipedia so I have attached the appropriate banner. It would be good if you could return to this article and add to it in a way that demonstrates the notability of the company. Citation of reliable, independent secondary sources is the ideal way of doing this. Please read WP:CORP. Happy editing. Dolphin (t) 03:58, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Sims was a pioneer of both the skateboard and industry in the 70's and during the 80's was one of the most identifiable brands of its time. Tom Sims is notable for being the founder of both. Just like Burton, Lib Tech and Powell Peralta, I'm confident it is noteworthy/notable per wp:note and wp:corp.. I'll do my best for find more sources.--Travis Thurston+ 05:33, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for that offer. Dolphin (t) 12:33, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

North Star[edit]

Hi Travis - Thanks for your note about the North Star Mine and North Star Mine Powerhouse. I made a comment under yours on the North Star Mine talkpage. After doing some editing, shifting content between the 2 articles, I think the articles are more clearly delineated as stand alones. I don't feel a sense of ownership with either of them, so if others think a merge is called for, then that's ok. However, if merge is the answer, I would think it would go in the other direction... North Star Mine Powerhouse and North Star House (Grass Valley, California) would merge into North Star Mine. Happy editing. P.S. I see you're from Portland; I lived in Bend for 4 years! --Rosiestep (talk) 15:17, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Cool :) I like Bend. And I think Mt. Bachelor makes the top the list for Oregon mountains to play on... Regarding North Star, I also don't much investment in it. It mostly piqued my interest because I grew up in the Nevada City/Grass Valley area and I "watch" some of the Nevada County articles. We'll see if anyone chimes in. And I agree that North Star Mine should be the parent article. Thanks for responding! --Travis Thurston+ 17:56, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Vandalism at University of Hawaii and University of Hawaii Manoa Articles[edit]

Aloha Travis Thurston, I hope that you noticed my contributions at both pages, helping to deal with the vandalism that occurred, and found them constructive. As a result of this incident, I have recently requested rollback, in case I encounter a situation like this in the future so that I can deal with it better. If you found my contributions helpful to this end, I would appreciate if you could vouch for what I did at Wikipedia:Requests_for_permissions/Rollback#User:Dalisays if you have time. Thanks for any consideration. Dalisays (talk) 05:38, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
sounds good... but honestly, I don't even know what rollback privileges are. Let me know what I can do! -Travis Thurston+ 09:02, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Oahu Wiknic on June 23rd[edit]

Aloha! I am planning to set up an Oahu Wikinic for June 23, as described at Wikipedia:Wiknic

My Wikipedia user name is Peaceray, I started about 15 months ago, & I have about 2,500 edits on en.wikipedia.org. I have been hankering to meet with some fellow local Wikipedians, especially since a few of us live in Kailua. To that end, I am sending email to or posting on the user Talk pages of 19 of us from the Wikipedia:WikiProject Hawaii/Participants page who I could identify as possibly living on Oahu.

Please see Wikipedia:Meetup/Oahu/1 & Wikipedia talk:Meetup/Oahu/1

I am open to any of the locations mentioned in the post, or other alternatives. I am like-to-operate-by-consensus type of guy, any workable location on which we could soon decide would be great!

Mahalo, Peaceray (talk) 23:16, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Cool. Love the term wiknic :) You can message me here, email at info (at) travisthurston.com or invite me on some fb group.

COI vs knowledgeable on subject[edit]

Travis, I wanted to call your attention to the Wikipedia guideline on conflict of interest and point you to the essay Plain and simple conflict of interest guide. I am not sure where the balance between conflict of interest and being a person with a good deal of knowledge on the subject rests. I think given the information on your user page a clear case could be made that you have an interest in promoting naturopathy and the associated institutions. That said I think you are probably also in a position of having education, experience and knowledge about the subject and associated institutions. I think you can make valuable contributions to WP on the subject. It would probably be appropriate to declare your conflict of interest and make contributions through suggestions on the talk pages of articles rather than via direct edits. I am willing to assist you in doing this, you may place a talkback on my talk page anytime you propose an edit and I will certainly take a look. I have no objection to adding material that is encyclopedic in both content and tone and is properly sourced, and I am willing to assist you in doing so. I thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia and look forward to your continued efforts and our potential collaboration. - - MrBill3 (talk) 07:57, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Hawaii edit-a-thon![edit]

Hello. I'm interested in attempting to put together an edit-a-thon for Hawaiian cultural topics something during the Makahiki festival perhaps around the month of November. The hope is that our lackluster coverage of Hawaiian mythology could be improved with help from the Bishop Museum, Hawaii Pacific University, and the Honolulu public library. I am in the process of making initial contacts with these organizations as well as Wikimedia DC's GLAM project. If this sounds like something you might be interested in participating in, or perhaps helping to coordinate, could you please add your name to 2014 Makahiki Edit-a-thon?--v/r - TP 21:24, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Medical Translation Newsletter
Issue 1, June/July 2014
by CFCF, Doc James

sign up for monthly delivery


Wiki Project Med Foundation logo.svg
TWB.svg

This is the first of a series of newsletters for Wikiproject Medicine's Translation Task Force. Our goal is to make all the medical knowledge on Wikipedia available to the world, in the language of your choice.

note: you will not receive future editions of this newsletter unless you *sign up*; you received this version because you identify as a member of WikiProject Medicine

Spotlight - Simplified article translation


Wikiproject Medicine started translating simplified articles in February 2014. We now have 45 simplified articles ready for translation, of which the first on African trypanosomiasis or sleeping sickness has been translated into 46 out of ~100 languages. This list does not include the 33 additional articles that are available in both full and simple versions.

Our goal is to eventually translate 1,000 simplified articles. This includes:

We are looking for subject area leads to both create articles and recruit further editors. We need people with basic medical knowledge who are willing to help out. This includes to write, translate and especially integrate medical articles.

What's happening?

CFCF - "IEG beneficiary" and editor of this newsletter.

I've (CFCF) taken on the role of community organizer for this project, and will be working with this until December. The goals and timeline can be found here, and are focused on getting the project on a firm footing and to enable me to work near full-time over the summer, and part-time during the rest of the year. This means I will be available for questions and ideas, and you can best reach me by mail or on my talk page.

Wikimania 2014

For those going to London in a month's time (or those already nearby) there will be at least one event for all medical editors, on Thursday August 7th. See the event page, which also summarizes medicine-related presentations in the main conference. Please pass the word on to your local medical editors.

Integration progress

There has previously been some resistance against translation into certain languages with strong Wikipedia presence, such as Dutch, Polish, and Swedish.
What was found is that thre is hardly any negative opinion about the the project itself; and any such critique has focused on the ways that articles have being integrated. For an article to be usefully translated into a target-Wiki it needs to be properly Wiki-linked, carry proper citations and use the formatting of the chosen target language as well as being properly proof-read. Certain large Wikis such as the Polish and Dutch Wikis have strong traditions of medical content, with their own editorial system, own templates and different ideas about what constitutes a good medical article. For example, there are not MEDRS (Polish,German,Romanian,Persian) guidelines present on other Wikis, and some Wikis have a stronger background of country-specific content.

  • Swedish
    Translation into Swedish has been difficult in part because of the amount of free, high quality sources out there already: patient info, for professionals. The same can be said for English, but has really given us all the more reason to try and create an unbiased and free encyclopedia of medical content. We want Wikipedia to act as an alternative to commercial sources, and preferably a really good one at that.
    Through extensive collaborative work and by respecting links and Sweden specific content the last unintegrated Swedish translation went live in May.
  • Dutch
    Dutch translation carries with it special difficulties, in part due to the premises in which the Dutch Wikipedia is built upon. There is great respect for what previous editors have created, and deleting or replacing old content can be frowned upon. In spite of this there are success stories: Anafylaxie.
  • Polish
    Translation and integration into Polish also comes with its own unique set of challenges. The Polish Wikipedia has long been independent and works very hard to create high quality contentfor Polish audience. Previous translation trouble has lead to use of unique templates with unique formatting, not least among citations. Add to this that the Polish Wikipedia does not allow template redirects and a large body of work is required for each article.
    (This is somewhat alleviated by a commissioned Template bot - to be released). - List of articles for integration
  • Arabic
    The Arabic Wikipedia community has been informed of the efforts to integrate content through both the general talk-page as well as through one of the major Arabic Wikipedia facebook-groups: مجتمع ويكيبيديا العربي, something that has been heralded with great enthusiasm.
Integration guides

Integration is the next step after any translation. Despite this it is by no means trivial, and it comes with its own hardships and challenges. Previously each new integrator has needed to dive into the fray with little help from previous integrations. Therefore we are creating guides for specific Wikis that make integration simple and straightforward, with guides for specific languages, and for integrating on small Wikis.

Instructions on how to integrate an article may be found here [4]
