WikiCup 2015 is now in the books! Congrats to our finalists and winners, and to everyone who took part in this year's competition.

This year's results were an exact replica of last year's competition. For the second year in a row, the 2015 WikiCup champion is Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) (FP bonus points). All of his points were earned for an impressive 253 featured pictures and their associated bonus points (5060 and 1695, respectively). His entries constituted scans of currency from all over the world and scans of medallions awarded to participants of the U.S. Space program. Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) came in second place; she earned by far the most bonus points (4082), for 4 featured articles, 15 good articles, and 147 DYKs, mostly about in her field of expertise, natural science. Belarus Cas Liber (submissions), a finalist every year since 2010, came in third, with 2379 points.

Our newcomer award, presented to the best-performing new competitor in the WikiCup, goes to United States Rationalobserver (submissions). Everyone should be very proud of the work they accomplished. We will announce our other award winners soon.

A full list of our award winners are:

We warmly invite all of you to sign up for next year's competition. Discussions and polls concerning potential rules changes are also open, and all are welcome to participate. The WikiCup judges will be back in touch over the coming months, and we hope to see you all in the 2016 competition. Until then, it only remains to once again congratulate our worthy winners, and thank all participants for their involvement!

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Redirect that should have been a deletion proposal[edit]

Cup-o-coffee-simple.svg It made me a little sad that you turned an article I liked into a redirect without discussion. Someone just restored it a month later.

May I ask that next time you want an article gone you please nominate it for WP:AFD? This would help get better discussion about topics that ought to be removed if they are inappropriate. Thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 15:47, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

American Idol[edit]

Your table for American Idol page has been reverted. There have been so many different tables that it is getting very tiresome, leave it as it is. If you have a good reason why you want to change it, please take it to discussion first. At the moment it is small and unobtrusive (because it's collapse), we don't really need another one.

WikiCup 2016 is just around the corner...[edit]

Hello everyone, and we would like to wish you all a happy holiday season. As you will probably already know, the 2016 WikiCup begins in the new year; there is still time to sign up. There are some changes we'd like to announce before the competition begins.

After two years of serving as WikiCup judge, User:Miyagawa has stepped down as judge. He deserves great thanks and recognition for his dedication and hard work, and for providing necessary transition for a new group of judges in last year's Cup. Joining Christine (User:Figureskatingfan) and Jason (User:Sturmvogel 66) is Andrew (User:Godot13), a very successful WikiCup competitor and expert in Featured Pictures; he won the two previous competitions. This is a strong judging team, and we anticipate lots of enjoyment and good work coming from our 2016 competitors.

We would also like to announce one change in how this year's WikiCup will be run. In the spirit of sportsmanship, Godot13 and Cwmhiraeth have chosen to limit their participation. See here for the announcement and a complete explanation of why. They and the judges feel that it will make for a more exciting, enjoyable, and productive competition.

The discussions/polls concerning the next competition's rules will be closed soon, and rules changes will be made clear on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Scoring and talk pages. The judges are committed to not repeating the confusion that occurred last year and to ensuring that the new rules are both fair and in the best interests of the competition, which is, first and foremost, about improving Wikipedia.

If you have any questions or concerns, the judges can be reached on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, on their talk pages, or by email. We hope you will all join us in trying to make the 2015 WikiCup the most productive and enjoyable yet. You are receiving this message because you are listed on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send. Sturmvogel 66 (talk), Figureskatingfan (talk), and Godot13 (talk).--MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 06:46, 22 December 2015 (UTC)

WikiCup 2016: Game On![edit]

We are about to enter the second week of the 2016 WikiCup. The most recent player to sign up brings the current total to 101 contestants. Signups close on 5 February. If you’re interested, you can join this year's WikiCup here.

We are aware that in some areas the scoring bot’s numbers are a little bit off (i.e., overly generous) and are working to have that corrected as soon as possible.--MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:04, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Re: Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz[edit]

Wow, great work expanding the article. It might even be close to meeting Good article criteria? I hope you have plans to nominate. ---Another Believer (Talk) 23:33, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

@Another Believer: Thanks!! I haven't really done over an article in over a year I think, so I would really love to get this one promoted sometime soon! WikiRedactor (talk) 01:10, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
Glad to hear! Also, just in case you are interested, you might consider working on the three songs from the album with articles. To be honest, I am not sure they pass Wikipedia's notability threshold, but if they do, it would be nice to have a Good topic related to the album. ---Another Believer (Talk) 01:23, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
@Another Believer: Yes I would like to get around to that at some point, I don't know when I'll have the time though hahaha WikiRedactor (talk) 01:41, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Boyfriend (Justin Bieber song)[edit]

Can you expand and arrange properly the "Composition" section? 123.136.107.102 (talk) 08:23, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

Hey WikiRedactor, do you have some spare time to take a look at this request regarding the move of Get Rich or Die Tryin' (album) to Get Rich or Die Tryin'? Appreciate your time.--Retrohead (talk) 19:02, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
