Why did you change your username? ZoriAlexandra08 (talk) 09:23, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

To ZoriAlexandra08: I do not believe we have met on here before. How did you know that I changed my name? Wes Wolf Talk 04:18, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
I've been wondering the exact same thing myself. I checked here and you currently have no pages in common, asides from this talk page. Perhaps, ZoriAlexandra08 would like to explain themself. — Tuxipεdia(talk) 04:29, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi Wes, can you move Hotel Gothia Towers to Gothia Towers? Thanks, Fort esc (talk) 20:39, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

To Fort esc: if you can't move it, then I won't be able to either. It will require an admin to do that. I only have file mover rights which allows me to rename files uploaded directly on Wikipedia (not ones at commons). Wes Wolf Talk 21:11, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
  • I've managed to find a way around it. Looking at the history, the entire content was based on your edits. So a copy/paste between each other was simple way around. It should be OK now. Wes Wolf Talk 21:32, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, i couldn't do the move because the page was already created (a redirect) Fort esc (talk) 21:35, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
To Fort esc: it didn't quite work as I hoped it would. So I'm going to ping some help on this. @Kudpung: please would it be possible to perform an admin page move on these article. Thank you! Wes Wolf Talk 21:38, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
  • I've just discovered there is such a thing as Wikipedia:Page mover rights. Weird that I have file mover and not page mover. Ah well. Wes Wolf Talk 21:43, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia page mover.svg

Hello, Wesley Wolf. Your account has been granted the "extendedmover" user right, either following a request for it or demonstrating familiarity with working with article names and moving pages. You are now able to rename pages without leaving behind a redirect, and move subpages when moving the parent page(s).

Please take a moment to review Wikipedia:Page mover for more information on this user right, especially the criteria for moving pages without leaving redirect. Please remember to follow post-move cleanup procedures and make link corrections where necessary, including broken double-redirects when suppressredirect is used. This can be done using Special:WhatLinksHere. It is also very important that no one else be allowed to access your account, so you should consider taking a few moments to secure your password. As with all user rights, be aware that if abused, or used in controversial ways without consensus, your page mover status can be revoked.

Useful links:

If you do not want the page mover right anymore, just let me know, and I'll remove it. Thank you, and happy editing! Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 00:42, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Congratulations. Not surprised at all. — Tuxipεdia(talk) 00:46, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
Oh heck, more icons along the top of my page LOL. Thank you Kudpung. I never knew about page mover rights until today. I always thought it was admins only that could do technical moves. I'm assuming this is a relatively new user right, in-line with file mover? Wes Wolf Talk 01:16, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Help with User Page[edit]

Hiya Wes, congrats on your page mover rights well deserved! I understand you are very busy but when you are free I was wandering if you could help me out with my user page? I'm wanting to redo the whole thing but to be honest I created the monstrosity I have now years ago and I don't know coding very well. Any help appreciated and this may sound silly what is this message at the top of your talk page? I haven't seen a message like that before very cool. ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 09:23, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

To Alucard 16: thank you for the congratulations. As for page ideas, I used Wikipedia:User page design center for ideas and inspirations towards my current creation. Or if you have some rough ideas on what you want, style, colour, content etc, then I don't mind knocking up a few designs. Wes Wolf Talk 09:27, 4 June 2017 (UTC)
Ah I didn't know that existed thanks let me have a look around the design center for some ideas. I defiantly will need help with coding though. And I just woke up here in the States and saw the news my thoughts and prayers go out to you, your family & friends and your country. If you need anything from me just let me know. ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 09:41, 4 June 2017 (UTC)
At present I seem to be coming under attack myself from yet another IP. I'm starting to hold a strong dislike to IP's after these long-term drive-by attacks. Wes Wolf Talk 09:43, 4 June 2017 (UTC)
I saw one of their messages and was going to revert it but you beat me to the punch. I don't blame ya for having a strong dislike towards them at the moment. I added your talk page to my watchlist for the time being. ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 09:50, 4 June 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I wouldn't mind, but I'm not even religious, so I found their remark calling me "one-sided deceiving Christian" a bit surprising. Half of my family are catholic, half or protestant, and I even have Greek Orthodox and Muslim in my family too. So I cannot exactly be "one-sided Christian". Lol. Wes Wolf Talk 09:51, 4 June 2017 (UTC)
Heya Wes hope that everything is going well with your studies. I have some ideas for my user page when your free to help I was thinking maybe an aqua/green color combination. I really like the rounded edges and the scrollboxes as well. Just not not sure how to implement it all with the coding lol. ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 06:20, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

On coincidences and your omnipresence[edit]

Hi there, as a relatively new user, of all users I see your name crop up a lot, upon investigation, I see that you too have Asperger's! I thought something about your writing style gave it away, we also share similarities in that we are both gay, atheist and seemingly share interests, so I thought I'd just drop this in and say hi(Don't see this as flirting, don't see this as flirting) also, I plan on using your user page code so I can write pages detailing my glorious ego, as it appears your userpage code is far superior. I look forward to seeing you again in talk pages, its always nice to see a fellow Aspie. Do you take interest in the subject of Philosophy or History? Factsoverfeelings (talk) 16:44, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for your message Factsoverfeelings. I appreciate and find it flattering that you wish to adopt the userpage code, however try to avoid making it an identical copy (including font type, colour, etc) as that may portray the impression on impersonation. As for my interests, unfortunately they are not in philosophy nor history. I see from your main user page that you state you are a member of the guild of copy editors yet you have only just joined Wikipedia. I find that somewhat strange. You need to be careful that you do not make claims to be of specific groups, as checks can be made, and it could cause problems. Wes Wolf Talk 17:09, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
Ah thanks for the tip, I'll make sure its all clear and signed on the guilds side Factsoverfeelings (talk) 17:13, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
To Factsoverfeelings: I noticed that you copied the code anyway without waiting for permission. Not really a logic action to have taken, and as a result you actually caused a few problems to your own talk page, which a bot had to repair. For example, you copied links to templates that do not exist and a protection template when your page is not protected. I would suggest looking at WP:UPDC, look at ideas there, and come up with your own personalised theme. Wes Wolf Talk 17:18, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
I was not being malicious in intent, good bye. Factsoverfeelings (talk) 17:21, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
To Factsoverfeelings: I know you wasn't acting with malicious intent, and never stated such things. You asked me for permission to copy the user page style, but did not wait for my reply and went and used it anyway. And in doing so you added some coding that is not relevant to you as a user, and was more relevant to myself. My user pages are move protected due to vandalism months ago, and you added coding relating to that on your own page. Had you been a little more patient and waited for my answer, then I would have said "yes" but "change not identical" and to "avoid copying user-specific coding". Wes Wolf Talk 17:27, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
  • For example, in your copy you included {{pp-move}}, a coding used on my talk page. That code is not relevant to your talk page, whereas it is a specific code highly relevant to my talk page. Had you waited for a reply, I would have informed you about reuse but to omit that template. Other codes which are user-specific where the personalised "Talkheader", "navbar", and "Wikibreak". They created redlinks to non-existent pages. Again, had you waited for my response to your initial request, I would have pointed those out too, so that you knew to avoid making the errors. As I said from the start, yes please adopt my user page style, but avoid making it an identical copy so that it would give off the impression of impersonating. Wes Wolf Talk 17:34, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

Article inspection[edit]

Hi Wes. I hope all is going well with your studies. Wikipedia's a little quiet when you aren't around. I'd like to remind you that I have a few articles that have been rewritten and need inspection before you cross them off your list. Of course, if you'd rather wait until your studies are done, that's fine. Cheers. — Tuxipεdia(talk) 06:21, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

WikiCup 2017 July newsletter[edit]

The third round of the competition has finished in a flurry of last minute activity, with 288 points being required to qualify for round 4. It was a hotly competitive round with all but four of the contestants exceeding the 106 points that was necessary to proceed to round 4 last year. Coemgenus and Freikorp tied on 288, and both have been allowed to proceed, so round 4 now has one pool of eight competitors and one of nine.

Round 3 saw the achievement of a 26-topic Featured topic by MPJ-DK as well as 5 featured lists and 13 featured articles. PanagiotisZois and SounderBruce achieved their first ever featured articles. Carbrera led the GA score with 10, Tachs achieved 17 DYKs and MBlaze Lightning 10 In the news items. There were 167 DYKs, 93 GARs and 82 GAs overall, this last figure being higher than the number of GAs in round 2, when twice as many people were taking part. Even though contestants performed more GARs than they achieved GAs, there was still some frustration at the length of time taken to get articles reviewed.

As we start round 4, we say goodbye to the fifteen or so competitors who didn't quite make it; thank you for the useful contributions you have made to the Cup and Wikipedia. Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 3 but before the start of round 4 can be claimed in round 4. Remember too that you must claim your points within 10 days of "earning" them (some people have fallen foul of this rule and the points have been removed).

If you are concerned that your nomination, whether it be for a good article, a featured process, or anything else, will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. It would be helpful if this list could be cleared of any items no longer relevant. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

New Page Reviewer Newsletter[edit]

Hello Wesley Wolf, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 18,511 pages. We have worked hard to decrease from over 22,000, but more hard work is needed! Please consider reviewing even just a few pages a a day.
  • Some editors are committing to work specifically on patrolling new pages on 15 July. If you have not reviewed new pages in a while, this might be a good time to be involved. Please remember that quality of patrolling is more important than quantity, that the speedy deletion criteria should be followed strictly, and that ovetagging for minor issues should be avoided.

Technology update:

  • Several requests have been put into Phabractor to increase usability of the New Pages Feed and the Page Curation toolbar. For more details or to suggest improvements go to Wikipedia:Page Curation/Suggested improvements
  • The tutorial has been updated to include links to the following useful userscripts. If you were not aware of them, they could be useful in your efforts reviewing new pages:

New Page Reviewer Newsletter[edit]

Hello Wesley Wolf, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 16,991 pages. We have worked hard to decrease from over 22,000, but more hard work is needed! Please consider reviewing even just a few pages a a day.

Technology update:

  • Rentier has created a NPP browser in WMF Labs that allows you to search new unreviewed pages using keywords and categories.

General project update:

  • The Wikimedia Foundation Community Tech team is working with the community to implement the autoconfirmed article creation trial. The trial is currently set to start on 7 September 2017, pending final approval of the technical features.
  • Please remember to focus on the quality of review: correct tagging of articles and not tagbombing are important. Searching for potential copyright violations is also important, and it can be aided by Earwig's Copyvio Detector, which can be added to your toolbar for ease of use with this user script.
  • To keep up with the latest conversation on New Pages Patrol or to ask questions, you can go to Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Reviewers and add it to your watchlist.

WikiCup 2017 September newsletter[edit]

Round 4 of the WikiCup has ended and we move forward into the final round. In round 4, a total of 12 FAs, 3 FLs, 44 GAs, 3 FLs, 79 DYKs, 1 ITN and 42 GARs was achieved, with no FPs or FTs this time. Congratulations to Peacemaker67 on the Royal Yugoslav Navy Good Topic of 36 items, and the 12 featured articles achieved by Cas Liber (5), Vanamonde93 (3), Peacemaker67 (2), Adityavagarwal (1) and 12george1 (1). With a FA scoring 200 points, and bonus points available on top of this, FAs are likely to feature heavily in the final round. Meanwhile Yellow Evan, a typhoon specialist, was contributing 12 DYKs and 10 GAs, while Adityavagarwal and Freikorp topped the GAR list with 8 reviews each. As we enter the final round, we are down to eight contestants, and we would like to thank those of you who have been eliminated for the useful contributions you have made to the Cup and Wikipedia. The lowest score needed to reach round 5 was 305, and I think we can expect a highly competitive final round.

Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 4 but before the start of round 5 can be claimed in round 5. Remember too that you must claim your points within 10 days of "earning" them. If you are concerned that your nomination will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed. It would be helpful if this list could be cleared of any items no longer relevant. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to reduce the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck, and let the best man (or woman) win! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

New Page Reviewer Newsletter[edit]

Hello Wesley Wolf, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 14304 pages. We have worked hard to decrease from over 22,000, but more hard work is needed! Please consider reviewing even just a few pages a day.
  • Currently there are 532 pages in the backlog that were created by non-autoconfirmed users before WP:ACTRIAL. The NPP project is undertaking a drive to clear these pages from the backlog before they hit the 90 day Google index point. Please consider reviewing a few today!

Technology update:

  • The Wikimedia Foundation is currently working on creating a new filter for page curation that will allow new page patrollers to filter by extended confirmed status. For more information see: T175225

General project update:

  • On 14 September 2017 the English Wikipedia began the autoconfirmed article creation trial. For a six month period, creation of articles in the mainspace of the English Wikipedia will be restricted to users with autoconfirmed status. New users who attempt article creation will now be redirected to a newly designed landing page.
  • Before clicking on a reference or external link while reviewing a page, please be careful that the site looks trustworthy. If you have a question about the safety of clicking on a link, it is better not to click on it.
  • To keep up with the latest conversation on New Pages Patrol or to ask questions, you can go to Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Reviewers and add it to your watchlist.
