Latinographix proposed deletion[edit]

Hi there, Your note on why you propose that the article for Latinographix should be deleted indicates that there are "No reliable sources." The sources do actually include several reviews of series books in major national review media (Kirkus, PopMatters, Publishers Weekly, various daily newspapers) that speak to the importance of individual titles and the series' relevance as a dedicated outlet for Latinx comics creators. These are not sales pages.

Thanks for considering. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.146.189.95 (talk) 17:14, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

You may comment on the deletion discussion page if you want to voice your opinion. – UnnamedUser (open talk page) 19:36, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

New page reviewer granted[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hi UnnamedUser. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group. Please check back at WP:PERM in case your user right is time limited or probationary. This user group allows you to review new pages through the Curation system and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or nominate them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is vital to maintaining the integrity of the encylopedia. If you have not already done so, you must read the tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the deletion policy. If you need any help or want to discuss the process, you are welcome to use the new page reviewer talk page. In addition, please remember:

  • URGENT: Please consider helping get the huge backlog (around 6,000 pages) down to a manageable number of pages as soon as possible.
  • Be nice to new editors. They are usually not aware that they are doing anything wrong. Do make use of the message feature when tagging pages for maintenance so that they are aware.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted. Please be formal and polite in your approach to them – even if they are not.
  • If you are not sure what to do with a page, don't review it – just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Accuracy is more important than speed. Take your time to patrol each page. Use the message feature to communicate with article creators and offer advice as much as possible.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you also may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In cases of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, or long-term inactivity, the right may be withdrawn at administrator discretion. Barkeep49 (talk) 23:26, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nominations?[edit]

Hey! Saw that you nominated some redirect pages I had made for speedy deletion, but then may have rolled them back? Not sure. Either way, the contraction I used for Hello from the Magic Tavern, HftMT, is commonly used among fans and I think warrants a redirect page. An example of this currently used / accepted in Wikipedia is TBBT redirecting to The Big Bang Theory.

Brsmith19 (talk) 23:56, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

@Brsmith19: Sorry, I was rash. You might want to explicitly state that the abbreviation is used in the article because redirects should make sense in relation to the information in the article.  UnnamedUser (open talk page) 23:58, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

Details on new pages patrolling[edit]

Thanks for your help on new pages patrolling as it's definitely needed. However, I wanted to make sure we are a bit more careful as recently folks had to speedy keep the AfD - Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Susan H. Hildreth. Being a director of the Institute for Museum and Library Services, the top organization overseeing these U.S. institutions, is a big deal so the notability for her was very high. Cheers. -- Fuzheado | Talk 16:32, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

GOCE December 2019 Newsletter[edit]

Guild of Copy Editors December 2019 Newsletter
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Hello and welcome to the December 2019 GOCE newsletter, an update of Guild happenings since the September edition. Our Annual Report should be ready in late January.

Copyeditors progress.png

Election time: Nominations for the election of a new tranche of Guild coordinators to serve for the first half of 2020 will be open from 1 to 15 December. Voting will then take place and the election will close on 31 December at 23:59 UTC. Positions for Guild coordinators, who perform the important behind-the-scenes tasks that keep our project running smoothly, are open to all Wikipedians in good standing. We welcome self-nominations so please consider nominating yourself if you've ever thought about helping out; it's your Guild and it doesn't run itself!

September Drive: Of the thirty-two editors who signed up, twenty-three editors copy edited at least one article; they completed 39 requests and removed 138 articles from the backlog, bringing the backlog to a low of 519 articles.

October Blitz: This event ran from 13 to 19 October, with themes of science, technology and transport articles tagged for copy edit, and Requests. Sixteen editors helped remove 29 articles from the backlog and completed 23 requests.

November Drive: Of the twenty-eight editors who signed up for this event, twenty editors completed at least one copy edit; they completed 29 requests and removed 133 articles from the backlog.

Our December Blitz will run from 15 to 21 December. Sign up now!

Progress report: From September to November 2019, GOCE copy editors processed 154 requests. Over the same period, the backlog of articles tagged for copy editing was reduced by 41% to an all-time low of 479 articles.

Request archiving: The archiving of completed requests has now been automated. Thanks to Zhuyifei1999 and Bobbychan193, YiFeiBot is now archiving the Requests page. Archiving occurs around 24 hours after a user's signature and one of the templates {{Done}}, {{Withdrawn}} or {{Declined}} are placed below the request. The bot uses the Guild's standard "purpose codes" to determine the way it should archive each request so it's important to use the correct codes and templates.

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators; Reidgreg, Baffle gab1978, Miniapolis, Tdslk and Twofingered Typist.
