2015 GA Cup - Round 2[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2015 GA Cup - Round 2
Symbol support vote.svg

Greetings, GA Cup competitors!

Wednesday saw the end of Round 1. The Rambling Man, who was eliminated during the first round in our last competition, earned an impressive 513 points, reviewed twice as many articles (26) as any other competitor. It was a tight race for second for first-time competitors BenLinus1214 and Tomandjerry211, who finished second and third with 243 and 224 points, respectively. Close behind was Wugapodes, who earned 205 points.

The change in our points system had an impact on scoring. It was easier to earn higher points, although the key to success didn't change from last time, which was choosing articles with older nomination dates. For example, most of the articles The Rambling Man reviewed were worth 18 points in the nomination date category, and he benefited from it. BenLinus1214 reviewed the longest article, A Simple Plan (at 26,536 characters, or 4,477 words), the 1994 film starring Bill Paxton, Billy Bob Thornton, and Bridget Fonda and directed by Sam Raimi, and earned all possible 5 points in that category.

After feedback from our participants, the judges slightly changed the rule about review length this time out. Shorter reviews are now allowed, as long as reviewers give nominators an opportunity to address their feedback. Shorter reviews are subject to the judges' discretion; the judges will continue their diligence as we continue the competition.

Despite having fewer contestants at the beginning of Round 1 than last time, 132 articles were reviewed, far more than the 117 articles that were reviewed in Round 1 of the inaugural GA Cup. All of us involved should be very proud of what we've accomplished thus far. The judges are certain that Round 2 will be just as successful.

16 contestants have moved onto Round 2 and have been randomly placed in 4 groups of 4, with the top 2 in each pool progressing to Round 3, as well as the top participant ("9th place") of all remaining competitors. Round 2 has already begun and will end on August 29 at 23:59:59 UTC. Information about Round 2 and the pools can be found here.

Good luck and remember to have fun!

Cheers from Dom497, Figureskatingfan, 3family6 and Jaguar, and MrWooHoo.

Gelechiidae tweaks[edit]

Hi Wilhelmina, as you might have noticed I didn't have much wiki-time last week, but I am now catching up with the articles you created. I have encountered a small problem in your template: you have 'Acrophiletis' in the name field of the taxobox for all new species you have created. Could you make sure you delete that from the next batches? Furthermore, would it be okay to make new species according to subfamily > tribe instead of alphabetical order of all Gelechiidae genera? That would make expanding them easier for me, since I wont have to jump from one end of the family to the other.. :) I was working on Coleotechnites (subfamily Gelechiinae; tribe Teleiodini) before you became active again. If you wouldn't mind continuing from there, that would be great..! Ruigeroeland (talk) 14:28, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Oh, just noticed: if there is a genus which states: 'Selected species', the list of species is incomplete! You can find all (or most) species on funet. This is also the case for Aristotelia (moth), which is missing most of the described species. Ruigeroeland (talk) 14:47, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

About Anguilla nebulosa page[edit]

Hi, glad to talk with you. I saw that you have created the page Anguilla nebulosa. But, I saw some revisions of this page that this article should be merged with Anguilla bengalensis. Fish Base stated that the species is A.nebulosa, but recent 2015 IUCN Red List stated that it is a synonym of A.bengalensis. I pasted article on A.nebulosa with A.bengalensis, but did not merge it. So it is up to you to further revised it. Thank You...

Slowly working my way through the Gelechiini species. I added species to Prolita, would you mind making articles for those and then wait until I finish off the last batch? Should be done by tomorrow. Thanks! Ruigeroeland (talk) 12:58, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Sure thing! :) If only there was a worthy joke about a band-aid attending the opera... (talk) 09:43, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Potential admin[edit]

Hi, I notice you're on Wikipedia:List of administrator hopefuls. Wikipedia would benefit from more admins. If you have been editing for more than 12 months (preferably 24+ months), and have been editing fairly consistently for the past 6 months (preferably 12+ months) with at least 100 edits a month (this tool will help) - or an explanation for any gaps, and haven't been blocked in the past three years - or a good explanation for a recent block, don't have a recent history of edit warring or arguing with other editors, feel you can explain why you wish to be an admin, can demonstrate some understanding of Wikipedia's procedures and processes, or know where to go for guidance, and are confident enough to go through a RfA, please get in touch with me. We can talk about it some more, and if all looks OK, I'll nominate you. SilkTork ✔Tea time 09:36, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
