Fame at last...[edit]

How does Wikipedia deal with a mass shooting? A frenzied start gives way to a few core editors. No mention of me though:). Nice diagrams, and a quick look at the page histories of shooting incidents will show a core of regular editors.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 17:30, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

HI WWGB, I'm a researcher at Sydney Uni and would like to contact you. I'm not sure how best to do this and hoping this message somehow reaches you....Doctor 17. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Doctor 17 (talkcontribs) 08:45, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

Were you aware?[edit]

I assume that you have been made aware of this. But, in the event that you were not, I wanted to point it out to you and bring this to your attention. Your name was mentioned in this article: How does Wikipedia deal with a mass shooting? A frenzied start gives way to a few core editors. Thanks. Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 23:46, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Rule[edit]

Hi! Please show the rule for it. Thanx Csurla (talk) 08:59, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

@Csurla:. See Q2 at Talk:Deaths in 2018/FAQ. Regards, WWGB (talk) 10:34, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png You probably need one about now. Here's hoping for a better year, in particular, one necessitating fewer new articles on terrorist attacks. E.M.Gregory (talk) 17:28, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Talk:George Pell[edit]

The Victorian Director of Public Prosecutions is pursuing prosecutions for contempt of court, and the court has been made aware that Wikipedia violated the suppression order. I came to the discussion with the intention of closing it, and later archiving so that it would be off the talk page and away from prying eyes. I understand that you didn't appreciate my flagrant comment, but I see you've ultimately come to the same conclusion, and perhaps that's for the best. While I don't hold the administrative bit on this wiki, I do have some legal training and I work on OTRS doing a significant quantity of legal triage, and I was simply venting my concern for some of the Australian editors who appeared to be in violation of the order. If this was interpreted as an attempt at intimidation then I apologise. TheDragonFire (talk) 08:50, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

@WWGB and TheDragonFire: Thought you may be interested in this discussion re Pell: Should Infobox criminal be added in the section titled ***Criminal charges and conviction***?. Cheers. Rangasyd (talk) 12:34, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.17[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello WWGB,

News
Discussions of interest
  • Two elements of CSD G6 have been split into their own criteria: R4 for redirects in the "File:" namespace with the same name as a file or redirect at Wikimedia Commons (Discussion), and G14 for disambiguation pages which disambiguate zero pages, or have "(disambiguation)" in the title but disambiguate a single page (Discussion).
  • {{db-blankdraft}} was merged into G13 (Discussion)
  • A discussion recently closed with no consensus on whether to create a subject-specific notability guideline for theatrical plays.
  • There is an ongoing discussion on a proposal to create subject-specific notability guidelines for chemicals and organism taxa.
Reminders
  • NPR is not a binary keep / delete process. In many cases a redirect may be appropriate. The deletion policy and its associated guideline clearly emphasise that not all unsuitable articles must be deleted. Redirects are not contentious. See a classic example of the templates to use. More templates are listed at the R template index. Reviewers who are not aware, do please take this into consideration before PROD, CSD, and especially AfD because not even all admins are aware of such policies, and many NAC do not have a full knowledge of them.
NPP Tools Report
  • Superlinks – allows you to check an article's history, logs, talk page, NPP flowchart (on unpatrolled pages) and more without navigating away from the article itself.
  • copyvio-check – automatically checks the copyvio percentage of new pages in the background and displays this info with a link to the report in the 'info' panel of the Page curation toolbar.
  • The NPP flowchart now has clickable hyperlinks.

Christchurch mosque shootings[edit]

Thanks for keeping the international reactions under control. AIRcorn (talk) 08:51, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

I wish to add my thanks as well. We are a country in shock trying to come to grips with the horror. NealeFamily (talk) 08:55, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

Video[edit]

I suggest you start taking a look how licensing on YouTube works, before you start editing out of unsubstantiated suspicion. People like you don't seem to have any idea how much time it takes to find CC images or videos, especially when it is necessary to dig through a fast corpus of ever growing data. And then the time to check and doublecheck and upload and see if the description is right and complete. "Oh, likely copyvio". No, it's not. It's depressing to see ones efforts so easily depreciated, especially by someone with over twelve years of experience. If you don't like the video added to the article, go to the Talk page, where I had already started a topic on it. Jürgen Eissink (talk) 05:29, 18 March 2019 (UTC).

Hi there, just keep an eye out for WP:3RR[edit]

Hi WWGB, hope you're doing well. I'm one of the administrators watching over the Christchurch page. I know you would already be keeping a watch over WP:3RR, but just dropped in here to ensure you don't accidentally cross it. Edits like [1][2][3] are surely a part of the editorial process when active participation is going in a current topic; just do ensure nobody takes offence or complains for any revert. Do reach out to me if I can help. Warmly, Lourdes 09:39, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
