Thank you for taking part in the Community Health learning campaign![edit]

Community Health learning campaign - Analysis Report of Community Responses
Thank you!

Hi,
apologies for writing in English, if this is not your first language.
I want to thank you once more for engaging in conversation on the Community Health learning campaign. It took us a while, but we can finally announce the winner of the prize, as well as share the outcomes of this conversation.

You might also be interested in taking part in the 2015 Harassment consultation. This is the first of several planned consultations on this topic, intended to provide a place to discuss ideas, concerns, proposals and possible solutions regarding Wikimedia communities’ harassment-related challenges.

This conversation would not have been the same without you. If you have more ideas, or follow up comments on the findings of the campaign, don't hesitate to leave me a message my talk page.

Have a great day,

María

Deleting information about my organization[edit]

Hi, I accidentally added some information today about my organization (Mellanox Technologies) which could be sensitive and is still there despite my revert. I was told that you could help by deleting the revision. Thanks! Jumbos (talk) 17:10, 4 February 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jumbos (talkcontribs) 17:08, 4 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]

@Jumbos: Hi, I may be able to help. Are you referring to this revision?
Ynhockey (Talk) 17:14, 4 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, no to this one Jumbos (talk) 17:19, 4 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]

@Jumbos: OK I assume you meant the other one too, because it has the same link, so I just deleted them all. Please re-add the non-personal information you added! Cheers, Ynhockey (Talk) 17:29, 4 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you! Jumbos (talk) 17:30, 4 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Orly Levy[edit]

Hey Yan. Any idea what Orly Levy's official status is – i.e. whether she is still officially a Yisrael Beiteinu MK despite having said she's resigned from the party. My understanding is that she only becomes an official independent if she gets permission from the House Committee to form a separate parliamentary faction (and that doesn't appear to have happened). Cheers, Number 57 21:11, 9 June 2016 (UTC)[reply]

It does list single-member breakaways (see Haim Amsalem listed in the 18th Knesset – "3.12.12 MK Chaim Amsellem left Shas and began serving as a Single MK parliamentary group."). But as you say, it may just not have been updated for a while. Cheers, Number 57 14:39, 10 June 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Fixing template[edit]

Hi Yan. Just wondered what you meant by this edit. {{Infobox Israel village}} doesn't exist – it's a redirect to {{Infobox Kibbutz}}. Cheers, Number 57 13:58, 26 July 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Actually, I think moving it should be fine (after all, the redirects work at the moment). Just need to make sure there are no double redirects. Also, if you use AWB, you could do a bulk set of changes in a relatively short period of time (if not, I can have a go). Number 57 14:41, 26 July 2016 (UTC)[reply]
I've moved it, and still appears to be working fine on all the articles where it's still called Infobox Kibbutz, so no need for a rapid change. I'll fix any I see when adding {{Israel populations}}. As an aside, do you know what's happened to the 2015 populations from the CBS? I haven't seen a release yet. Cheers, Number 57 19:31, 26 July 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Just an FYI, you can use the population template in text too, which will mean that the infobox and article text always have the same figure. See the intro to Sde Boker as an example. Cheers, Number 57 19:19, 31 July 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Please check this page and fix the errors highlighted. If you think this is a false positive, you can report it to my operator. Thanks, ReferenceBot (talk) 00:22, 2 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Map uploads[edit]

Hey. I was wondering whether you would mind if I uploaded new versions of the likes of File:Israel outline haifa.png over the top of your originals on Commons. I've worked out how to change the map of Israel in the left-hand section to match this (the sea is still the same colour as in your original, but the Palestinian territories/Golan Heights are coloured like the currently-used maps, plus the district borders are shown). If this can be sorted, it means we can restore all the maps to the infoboxes rather than having the whole country map there on every single article.

If it's an issue, I can upload them with slightly different titles. Cheers, Number 57 22:38, 30 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]

I've uploaded the new version, and also restored it to {{Location map Israel haifa}}, which means it's now being used again on articles like Kiryat Yam. If you don't like it, I'm happy to revert! If you're ok with it, I'll do the rest. Number 57 11:35, 31 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
I've got them all ready now to upload if that's ok. Cheers, Number 57 17:27, 31 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
All done now. Unfortunately Gila has changed loads of the map sizes to 100 or 150px, which now means they are now far too small, so plenty will have to be fixed... Number 57 19:49, 1 September 2016 (UTC)[reply]
I've been through all the places in the villages and community settlement categories and fixed the size. Number 57 20:36, 1 September 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svgHello, Ynhockey. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Help Needed with Zeek Wikipedia page[edit]

Hi There,

I have been following your recent edits on Wikipedia. You seem like you truly know your way around Wiki. I would like to ask you help improve Zeek Wikipedia article. Zeek has a wide range of media coverage from worldwide media. Any input from an esteemed editor such as yourself would be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 05:03, 21 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Ynhockey.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:48, 15 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Russian language favour[edit]

Hi Yan. Someone has referenced the South Ossetian referendum results to the figures on this page. The "for" and "against" votes seem quite obvious (figures in rows 11 and 12 in the sheet) and they appear to have added rows 8 and 9 to get the invalid/blank total. However, the sum of these (34,324) is quite different to what appears to be the total (33,361). As you're a Russian speaker, I was wondering whether you could say what is actually going on here. Cheers, Number 57 21:05, 12 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for the response. This isn't entirely uncommon – the Bulgarian Election Commission's figures for their recent election don't add up either... Never mind. Hope you're well anyway! Number 57 18:06, 21 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Invitation to Admin confidence survey[edit]

Hello,

Beginning in September 2017, the Wikimedia Foundation Anti-harassment tool team will be conducting a survey to gauge how well tools, training, and information exists to assist English Wikipedia administrators in recognizing and mitigating things like sockpuppetry, vandalism, and harassment.

The survey should only take 5 minutes, and your individual response will not be made public. This survey will be integral for our team to determine how to better support administrators.

To take the survey sign up here and we will send you a link to the form.

We really appreciate your input!

Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.

A cupcake for you![edit]

Choco-Nut Bake with Meringue Top cropped.jpg Hi! dear, I am thanking you for the article Max Kyuss, you recently created. I tried to enrich the article but failed to get any reference. You are more experienced. So, I hope, you may, manage all. Keep working. I am impressed of your work. Willy-nilly (talk) 08:06, 26 September 2017 (UTC)[reply]

What level are you?[edit]

I found your name at Category:User js (probably because you posted the corresponding userbox on your user page), in the level-unspecified list of JavaScript programmers.

I was wondering how experienced you are at JavaScript, and whether you might be interested in getting involved with developing user scripts, hobnobbing with other JavaScript programmers, and organizing and improving JavaScript articles and support pages.

We do all of that and more at the JavaScript WikiProject.

Scripts undergoing development, and the state of JavaScript on Wikipedia, are discussed on the talk page.

For an overview of JavaScript coverage on Wikipedia, see Draft:Outline of JavaScript and Index of JavaScript-related articles. For everything on user scripts, see User:The Transhumanist/Outline of scripts.

The WikiProject also organizes every resource it can find about JavaScript out there, such as articles, books, tutorials, etc. See our growing Reference library. If you know of any good ones, please add them.

If you would like to join the JavaScript WikiProject, feel free to add your name to the participants list.

Hope to see you there! The Transhumanist 16:48, 12 May 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Transhumanist,
I am actually quite fluent in JavaScript, but time restricts me from becoming a major code contributor to MediaWiki, extensions, widgets, or for that matter non-WM-related open-source projects. However, I might be interested in helping with small tasks or writing about JavaScript. Thanks also for linking to some interesting resources.
Cheers, Ynhockey (Talk) 17:11, 13 May 2017 (UTC)[reply]
You are welcome. I understand about time constraints. Actually, I'm trying to become a major code contributor, of helpful user scripts. A possible small task would be sharing your expertise from time to time, to help user script writers get unstuck. I happen to be stuck on one of the scripts I'm writing. I've posted the problem at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject JavaScript#I'm stumped: How do you save a location in the viewport to reposition the viewport later?. Maybe you could comment, if it isn't too time consuming? Thank you. The Transhumanist 17:09, 15 May 2017 (UTC)[reply]
I've written some user scripts, and was wondering if you wouldn't mind taking a look at them. (To help others follow along, I've posted extensive notes on the talk pages explaining the source code.) I've only tested them in Firefox. Here they are:
  • User:The Transhumanist/OutlineViewAnnotationToggler.js – this one provides a menu item to turn annotations on/off, so you can view lists bare when you want to (without annotations). When done, it will work on (the embedded lists of) all pages, not just outlines. Currently it is limited to outlines only, for testing purposes. It will support hotkey activation/deactivation of annotations, but that feature currently lacks an accurate viewport location reset for retaining the location on screen that the user was looking at. It also needs an indicator that tells the user it is still on. Otherwise, you might wonder why a bare list has annotations in edit mode, when you go in to add some. :)
  • User talk:The Transhumanist/RedlinksRemover.js – strips out entries in outlines that are nothing but a redlink. It removes them right out of the tree structure. But only end nodes. It delinks redlinks that have non-redlink offspring, or that have or are embedded in an annotation. It does not yet recognize entries that lack a bullet (it treats those as embedded).
It is my objective to build a set of scripts that fully automate the process of creating outlines. This end goal is a long way off (AI-complete?). In the meantime, I hope to increase productivity as much as I can. Fifty percent automation would double an editor's productivity. I think I could reach 80% automation (a five-fold increase in productivity) within a couple years.
There's more:
  • User:The Transhumanist/StripSearchInWikicode.js – another script, which strips WP search results down to a bare list of links, and inserts wikilink formatting for ease of insertion of those links into lists. This is useful for gathering links for outlines. I'd like this script to sort its results. So, if you know how, or know someone who knows how, please let me know. A more immediate problem is that the output is interlaced with CR/LFs. I can't figure out how to get rid of them. Stripping them out in WikEd via regex is a tedious extra step. It would be nice to track them down and remove them with the script.
I look forward to your observations, concerns, ideas, and suggestions. The Transhumanist 09:39, 26 October 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Quick question[edit]

You stopped by my talk page earlier this month with a quick intro and orientation of sorts, in which you also mentioned that I could reach out if I have questions. That day has inevitably come, but I have no idea if this is the type of question I should be asking you or if there is somewhere else that would be more appropriate, in which case if you could point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

As for the question, I was reading a page about this book and saw that the description of the cover image states that the copyright "is believed to belong to the publisher ... or the cover artist." It does not mention the artist ( François-Auguste_Biard ) or the title of the painting ( commons page here ). In this situation, assuming that the description of the cover image should be edited to include this information, what's the protocol for making sure I do it correctly and include all necessary information?

Any help you could provide is appreciated, and please feel free to just point me in the right direction. Thanks again for stopping by. Stopgrammartime (talk) 04:19, 27 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Your move..[edit]

You made use of your admin powers to delete articles before you moved 2018 Land Day massacre to 2018 Land Day incidents.

I cannot undo your edits, as I cannot delete articles to undo your move. (As, AFAIK, only admins can do that.)

From my understanding, using your admin powers in a matter where you are highly involved is ....not a good thing. Please undo your move. Thank you, Huldra (talk) 21:26, 31 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]

He reverted a controversial move, and from what I can see, any autoconfirmed editor would have been able to make that move, because it was not over an edited redirect (it appears in the log that he deleted the page, but this is automatic – your own log shows page deletions when you have moved pages despite not being an admin). Therefore he was not using his admin powers.
Also, as he was reverting a controversial move, he shouldn't be being asked to undo it. Number 57 21:51, 31 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, I can move articles (if it is to an article name which does not already exist), and No, I cannot delete articles. (The deleted redirect in my log is basically writing in a redir.) So I cannot undo Ynhockeys move, only admins can do that. (They would have to delete 2018 Land Day massacre before such a move.) Huldra (talk) 22:03, 31 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@Huldra: You have moved articles to redirects that already exist, hence why your log has the line:
"21:37, 19 December 2017 Huldra (talk | contribs | block) deleted redirect Huj, Gaza by overwriting (G6: Deleted to make way for move) (view/restore)"
The reason you cannot move the article back to 2018 Land Day massacre is that it has since been edited by a bot. Once that happens, only admins can move. The Huj, Gaza redirect would have only been edited once (i.e. its creation) to allow you to move over it. Number 57 22:07, 31 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah, well, the reason I cannot move it back is, that unlike Ynhockey, I am not an admin, so I (again, unlike him) cannot delete a page to make place for a move. (Hey, I am not saying that if I was an admin I would have done that!! Even I have understood the wheel war concepts...) Huldra (talk) 22:14, 31 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@Huldra: You do not necessarily need to be an admin to delete pages to make moves, as your own log shows that you have deleted pages to make way for moves (which happens automatically without you having to actually hit any delete button). Anyway, the point is that Ynhockey was not using admin powers, as you have repeatedly claimed. I think you need to retract/apologise. Number 57 22:19, 31 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@Number 57: Huh? When did I ever delete an article to make room for move? (Like Ynhockey just did) I cannot do that! I dont have a delete button.... Huldra (talk) 22:25, 31 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@Huldra: Compare these two log entries:
"21:37, 19 December 2017 Huldra (talk | contribs | block) deleted redirect Huj, Gaza by overwriting (G6: Deleted to make way for move) (view/restore)"
"21:46, 31 March 2018 Ynhockey (talk | contribs | block) deleted page 2018 Land Day incidents (G6: Deleted to make way for move)"
As I've tried to explain, when you move an article over a redirect, you do not get asked to delete that article if the redirect has never been edited (only created). Hence when you moved the Huj article, you did not get asked to delete the redirect that you moved it over – it was automatically deleted. This is what happened here to. Number 57 22:29, 31 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
User:Number 57 Right, but the whole point us that I could NOT have done what Ynhockey did: I could not have deleted to make room for a move. If you look at the logs for 2018 Land Day incidents, you will see that it had been edited after being created. Hence it needed admin powers to delete it. Huldra (talk) 22:35, 31 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@Huldra: I believe you could have made that move because there is only a single deleted edit, which means it could have been deleted by a non-admin as part of a normal move. It was not edited after being created (otherwise there would be more than one deleted edit) and your link does not show otherwise. You also created a single deleted edit when you moved the Huj page. Number 57 22:45, 31 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Nope, I believe you are wrong. Again, I cannot undo Ynhockey, as I am not an admin. And if you look at the history of the article, then you will see that for most of the time it had the name 2018 Land Day massacre (It was created under that name) ..and now Ynhockey has created an advantage for himself, since no non admin can undo him....and no admin will undo him, as that would be WP:WW. This is simply not fair. Huldra (talk) 23:29, 31 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Then you really need to learn how Wikipedia works before throwing around accusations (it's sad that you are refusing to accept any of the quite clear evidence above). Ynhockey has not created any advantage for himself. The reason no-one except admins can move the article to 2018 Land Day massacre is because that redirect has been edited since it was created. If Ynhockey had made that edit to prevent the move back, then I would agree he had created the advantage, but he didn't – it was edited by a bot.

Hello, from the Portals WikiProject...[edit]

You are invited to join the effort to revitalize and improve the Portal system...

The Portals WikiProject was rebooted 9 days ago, and is going strong. Fifty-two editors have joined so far, with more joining daily.

We're having a blast, and excitement is high...

Our goal is to update, upgrade, and maintain portals.

In addition to working directly on portals, we are developing tools to make building and maintaining portals easier. We've finished one so far, with more to come.

Discussions are underway about how to upgrade portals, and what the portals of the future will be.

There are plenty of tasks (including WikiGnome tasks too) on the WikiProject page.

With more to come.

We may even surprise ourselves and exceed all expectations. Who knows what we will be able to accomplish in what may become the biggest Wikicollaboration in years.

See ya at the WikiProject!

Printing permit for a map of yours about the security barries to be used in a new book[edit]

Dear Ynhockey,

I would like to use your map of the security barrier in a new book entitled "100 Years Middle East Conflict - an Honorable Solution." I need a written printing permit. The address of your map: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Westbank_barrier.png. Could you please send such a permit to: gottfried.hutter@gmx.de If there are special conditions, please let me know.

Best wishes Gottfried — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2003:EE:BD8:FDB8:8553:4FB:697D:C259 (talk) 09:58, 22 May 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you very much[edit]

The RfC discussion to eliminate portals was closed May 12, with the statement "There exists a strong consensus against deleting or even deprecating portals at this time." This was made possible because you and others came to the rescue. Thank you for speaking up.

By the way, the current issue of the Signpost features an article with interviews about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

I'd also like to let you know that the Portals WikiProject is working hard to make sure your support of portals was not in vain. Toward that end, we have been working diligently to innovate portals, while building, updating, upgrading, and maintaining them. The project has grown to 80 members so far, and has become a beehive of activity.

Our two main goals at this time are to automate portals (in terms of refreshing, rotating, and selecting content), and to develop a one-page model in order to make obsolete and eliminate most of the 150,000 subpages from the portal namespace by migrating their functions to the portal base pages, using technologies such as selective transclusion. Please feel free to join in on any of the many threads of development at the WikiProject's talk page, or just stop by to see how we are doing. If you have any questions about portals or portal development, that is the best place to ask them.

If you would like to keep abreast of developments on portals, keep in mind that the project's members receive updates on their talk pages. The updates are also posted here, for your convenience.

Again, we can't thank you enough for your support of portals, and we hope to make you proud of your decision. Sincerely,    — The Transhumanist   23:18, 25 May 2018 (UTC)[reply]

WP:NPA[edit]

A reminder, as you apparently need one, but talk pages are meant for discussing article content, not for making baseless and petty personal attacks. Kindly cease doing so. nableezy - 16:15, 21 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

It was absolutely not a violation of WP:POINT. At least two users objected to the article name you unilaterally moved the article to, making that move both out of process and without consensus. You cannot both demand the article be titled as though it only discusses things in Israel and then include things that literally no reliable sources say are in Israel. Me rectifying that error is not a POINTy edit or whatever else you want to call it, it is a NPOV one. nableezy - 20:08, 21 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Sinking of the Freighter Attavirus in April 20, 1985[edit]

Hello, i noticed you've edited some articles about Israeli naval topics in the past and was wondering if you knew any details about the sinking of the freighter Attavirus in 1985. Apparently it was transporting Palestinian militants to attack Israel when it was intercepted by some Israeli missile boats who sunk it after a short battle. In particular i was wondering if you had access to any information regarding Israeli accounts of the battle and the names of the Israeli ships involved. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Opinion polling for next Israeli election[edit]

I know IPs are fraustrating for some, but can you take indefinite semiprotection of the article and replace it with a one that’ll have a set expiry date, or pending changes please? It’s because there’s no fairness to set indefinite for first time offence unless arbitration applies. Thank you. 59.102.44.48 (talk) 06:09, 9 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Hi anon,
@59.102.44.48: Sorry I was unable to reply earlier. The reason I protected the article/list was that it was vandalized more than once by an anonymous user, and this type of vandalism is extremely difficult to detect (in fact, it was detected completely by accident 2 weeks after the fact). The lengthy period of misinformation combined with the difficulty of detection and persistent vandalism, means that the best way forward is to block unregistered users from editing the article, at least until the election itself—after which I may re-evaluate the situation. If you would like to constructively contribute to the article, please feel free to register a user name.

Military Advocate General[edit]

Hi Ynhockey,

Happy New Years! You have recently reverted my edits on the Military Advocate General page. All the edits I made on that page are based on the official information available on the MAG website. I am a new editor at Wikipedia and would appreciate if you could expand on the Copyright rules over here. In particular, if I would have cited the source of the information would that make it ok?

Thanks in advance, — Preceding unsigned comment added by Avitevel (talkcontribs) 13:24, 7 January 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Leave "List of countries by average wage" alone unless you know how to fix it[edit]

You have edited "List of countries by average wage" in bad faith. Please avoid this in future. Do you understand the problem with that page? If you do, then you understand why your reversion was bad. If you don't understand, but want to learn write me a polite message. If you don't understand why your change was bad, and don't want to learn why, please avoid further sabotage.

Thank you.Jamesdowallen (talk) 18:07, 16 January 2019 (UTC)[reply]

YOU are the veteran editor. I am a novice trying to be helpful. I identify a REAL problem, waste considerable time to bring it your attention, follow the instructions as best as I can.

I don't have time to waste hours learning Wikipedia arcana. Can you understand that much? That I want to help improve content but do not have time for certain details?

So, my "Nomination for deletion" was incomplete. I'm not surprised. A nomination would get nowhere without a "second" anyway. Would you like to be the second? If not, why not just leave the delete notice attached? My impression now is that you are responding to my rudeness and only want to frustrate and foil me regardless of how correct my recommendation is. Fine. But just as a test, please tell me -- yes or no -- whether you understand that the mismatch between that article's title and the article's content is so huge as to be preposterous, as to be an insult to Wikipedia. Can you understand that?Jamesdowallen (talk) 12:06, 17 January 2019 (UTC)[reply]

I notice that you recently "deleted page List of OECD countries by average wage (A10: Recently created article that duplicates an existing topic) (thank)" No. The page you deleted is a page whose titile suggests what it is. It duplicated a nonsensical page whose title made no sense. THAT was the page that should have been deleted. HTH.Jamesdowallen (talk) 10:42, 27 January 2019 (UTC)[reply]

"If you believe that a certain page's title should be changed, you can open a move request. " Do YOU think the name should be changed? If so why don't YOU open a move request. You're obviously much more invested in Wikipedia than I am. If not, I'll defer to your "expertise."

I'm trying to be helpful. I've got much better things to do with my time than initiate a "RM" for a page YOU seem to care about, forget to dot an I or cross a T, and then waste minutes more of your time. Minutes and minutes because ... Because what? You get sadistic thrills from watching a novice make mistakes on a RM than just fixing it yourself?Jamesdowallen (talk) 15:14, 27 January 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Heritage site in Israel[edit]

Hello Yan, you made this great "Template:Heritage site in Israel". Where can I get the Heritage-site-in-Israel-Numbers? Especially for Buildings and fountains etc. in the old city of Jerusalem? Is there any directory of this numbers and sites or any documentation for this topic? And which organisation stands behind this? Thankyou for your help. And also another question: do you know any online-directory of streetnames in old city of Jerusalem, parallel in english, hebrew and arabic? --Allexkoch (talk) 10:38, 25 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Yan, thankyou for your answer.

To the heritage-numbers:

This page in the Hebrew Wikipedia is very interesting, but I think it is far from complete. There must be thousands and thousands of heritage sites with their numbers in the old city of Jerusalem. Also in this page are no references, where the numbers come from, and no remark, what Institution delivers these numbers. If I would take this page for German Wikipedia, they would delete it because of the lack of references. I write usually for the German Wikipedia. In German we have Authorities, f.i. the Bavarian State Office for Monument Protection this page, which publish their numbers (online) for all officially rekognized heritage sites. Is there such an authority in Israel also? And if yes, what are their webpages? Where do they publish their numbers? What is the name of the authority or institution which delivers these numbers, where do these numbers come from?

To the street names:

I want to make a list for German Wikipedia with all the streetnames (german, hebrew, arabic and WP-article, if exists) in the Old city of Jerusalem and their Wikipedia-Articles for the sake of an easy overview. In OpenStreetMap the names are either in arabic or in hebrew.

My Hebrew and Arabic is not really good, although I have been trying to learn these languages for many years. It is enough to read and understand, but it is not enough to search the Hebrew web pages. So, if you could send me a link for a municipal website of Jerusalem which has a list of streets there, that would be very nice of you.

Thankyou very much for your help. --Allexkoch (talk) 11:34, 26 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you very much for your help and patience. Now, following your advice, I have even found an alphabetical street directory of all streets of Jerusalem parallel English, Arabic and Hebrew in the administration of Jerusalem (here) - very informative, even with explanations where the street name historical comes from and also to the location of the street. --Allexkoch (talk) 11:09, 27 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Editor adding need quotation to verify to Hebrew sourced articles[edit]

User:NYC.Geek originally created an article with a conflict of interest - it seemed to be about himself - as Steven Strauss. When raised concerns and discussed in with other editors, he seemed to use a different account called User:I.new.around.here. After Steven Strauss's article was deleted, he has attacked specifically Israel-related article I created. For example, he has added a Conflict of Interest tag to Tanya Pylavets. Her notability is indeed questionable now and she can probably be deleted, although at the time of creation she had seemed notable in Israeli media. But adding Conflict of Interest to a one-time famous model's article, was strange. In the case of the Dorit Revelis article which you had also edited, it seems he has deleted a lot of content that was in the sources need quotation to verify to everything from Hebrew mainstream sources. The article needs some work and improvement, but he has simply deleted half of it because he's angry his article as Steven Strauss was deleted. Avaya1 (talk) 11:10, 12 April 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Administrator account security (Correction to Arbcom 2019 special circular)[edit]

ArbCom would like to apologise and correct our previous mass message in light of the response from the community.

Since November 2018, six administrator accounts have been compromised and temporarily desysopped. In an effort to help improve account security, our intention was to remind administrators of existing policies on account security — that they are required to "have strong passwords and follow appropriate personal security practices." We have updated our procedures to ensure that we enforce these policies more strictly in the future. The policies themselves have not changed. In particular, two-factor authentication remains an optional means of adding extra security to your account. The choice not to enable 2FA will not be considered when deciding to restore sysop privileges to administrator accounts that were compromised.

We are sorry for the wording of our previous message, which did not accurately convey this, and deeply regret the tone in which it was delivered.

  • England Gog the Mild came next with 464 points, from a featured article, two good articles and a number of reviews, the main theme being naval warfare.
  • United States Raymie was in third place with 419 points, garnered from one good article and an impressive 34 DYKs on radio and TV stations in the United States.
  • Somerset Harrias came next at 414, with a featured article and three good articles, an English civil war battle specialist.
  • Pirate flag CaptainEek was in fifth place with 405 points, mostly garnered from bringing Cactus wren to featured article status.
  • The top ten contestants at the end of Round 1 all scored over 200 points; they also included United States L293D, Venezuela Kingsif, Antarctica Enwebb, England Lee Vilenski and Nepal CAPTAIN MEDUSA. Seven of the top ten contestants in Round 1 are new to the WikiCup.

These contestants, like all the others, now have to start scoring points again from scratch. In Round 1 there were four featured articles, one featured list and two featured pictures, as well as around two hundred DYKs and twenty-seven ITNs. Between them, contestants completed 127 good article reviews, nearly a hundred more than the 43 good articles they claimed for, thus making a substantial dent in the review backlog. Contestants also claimed for 40 featured article / featured list reviews, and most even remembered to mention their WikiCup participation in their reviews (a requirement).

Remember that any content promoted after the end of Round 1 but before the start of Round 2 can be claimed in Round 2. Some contestants made claims before the new submissions pages were set up, and they will need to resubmit them. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews.

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!

WikiCup newsletter correction[edit]

There was an error in the WikiCup 2020 March newsletter; United States L293D should not have been included in the list of top ten scorers in Round 1 (they led the list last year), instead, United States Dunkleosteus77 should have been included, having garnered 334 points from five good articles on animals, living or extinct, and various reviews.

WikiCup 2020 May newsletter[edit]

The second round of the 2020 WikiCup has now finished. It was a high-scoring round and contestants needed 75 points to advance to round 3. There were some very impressive efforts in round 2, with the top ten contestants all scoring more than 500 points. A large number of the points came from the 12 featured articles and the 186 good articles achieved in total by contestants, and the 355 good article reviews they performed; the GAN backlog drive and the stay-at-home imperative during the COVID-19 pandemic may have been partially responsible for these impressive figures.

Our top scorers in round 2 were:

  • New York (state) Epicgenius, with 2333 points from one featured article, forty-five good articles, fourteen DYKs and plenty of bonus points
  • England Gog the Mild, with 1784 points from three featured articles, eight good articles, a substantial number of featured article and good article reviews and lots of bonus points
  • Botswana The Rambling Man, with 1262 points from two featured articles, eight good articles and a hundred good article reviews
  • Somerset Harrias, with 1141 points from two featured articles, three featured lists, ten good articles, nine DYKs and a substantial number of featured article and good article reviews
  • England Lee Vilenski with 869 points, Gondor Hog Farm with 801, Venezuela Kingsif with 719, Cascadia (independence movement) SounderBruce with 710, United States Dunkleosteus77 with 608 and Mexico MX with 515.

The rules for featured article reviews have been adjusted; reviews may cover three aspects of the article, content, images and sources, and contestants may receive points for each of these three types of review. Please also remember the requirement to mention the WikiCup when undertaking an FAR for which you intend to claim points. Remember also that DYKs cannot be claimed until they have appeared on the main page. As we enter the third round, any content promoted after the end of round 2 but before the start of round 3 can be claimed now, and anything you forgot to claim in round 2 cannot! Remember too, that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them. When doing GARs, please make sure that you check that all the GA criteria are fully met.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article nominations, a featured process, or anything else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required).

WikiCup 2020 July newsletter[edit]

The third round of the 2020 WikiCup has now come to an end. The 16 users who made it into the fourth round each had at least 353 points (compared to 68 in 2019). It was a highly competitive round, and a number of contestants were eliminated who would have moved on in earlier years. Our top scorers in round 3 were:

  • New York (state) Epicgenius, with one featured article, 28 good articles and 17 DYKs, amassing 1836 points
  • Botswana The Rambling Man , with 1672 points gained from four featured articles and seventeen good articles, plus reviews of a large number of FACs and GAs
  • England Gog the Mild, a first time contestant, with 1540 points, a tally built largely on 4 featured articles and related bonus points.

Between them, contestants managed 14 featured articles, 9 featured lists, 3 featured pictures, 152 good articles, 136 DYK entries, 55 ITN entries, 65 featured article candidate reviews and 221 good article reviews. Additionally, Denmark MPJ-DK added 3 items to featured topics and 44 to good topics. Over the course of the competition, contestants have completed 710 good article reviews, in comparison to 387 good articles submitted for review and promoted. These large numbers are probably linked to a GAN backlog drive in April and May, and the changed patterns of editing during the COVID-19 pandemic. As we enter the fourth round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 3 but before the start of round 4 can be claimed in round 4. Please also remember that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them. When doing GARs, please make sure that you check that all the GA criteria are fully met. Please also remember that all submissions must meet core Wikipedia policies, regardless of the review process.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article nominations, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required).

WikiCup 2020 September newsletter[edit]

The fourth round of the competition has finished, with 865 points being required to qualify for the final round, nearly twice as many points as last year. It was a hotly competitive round with two contestants with 598 and 605 points being eliminated, and all but two of the contestants who reached the final round having achieved an FA during the round. The highest scorers were

  • Free Hong Kong Bloom6132, with 1478 points gained mainly from 5 featured lists, 12 DYKs and 63 in the news items;
  • IndonesiaHaEr48 with 1318 points gained mainly from 2 featured articles, 5 good articles and 8 DYKs;
  • England Lee Vilenski with 1201 points mainly gained from 2 featured articles and 10 good articles.

Between them, contestants achieved 14 featured articles, 14 featured lists, 2 featured pictures, 87 good articles, 90 DYK entries, 75 ITN entries, 95 featured article candidate reviews and 81 good article reviews. Congratulations to all who participated! It was a generally high-scoring and productive round and I think we can expect a highly competitive finish to the competition.

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.

WikiCup 2020 November newsletter[edit]

The 2020 WikiCup has come to an end, with the final round going down to the wire. Our new Champion is England Lee Vilenski (submissions), the runner-up last year, who was closely followed by England Gog the Mild (submissions). In the final round, Lee achieved 4 FAs and 30 GAs, mostly on cue sport topics, while Gog achieved 3 FAs and 15 GAs, mostly on important battles and wars, which earned him a high number of bonus points. Botswana The Rambling Man (submissions) was in third place with 4 FAs and 8 GAs on football topics, with New York (state) Epicgenius (submissions) close behind with 19 GAs and 16 DYK's, his interest being the buildings of New York.

The other finalists were Gondor Hog Farm (submissions), Indonesia HaEr48 (submissions), Somerset Harrias (submissions) and Free Hong Kong Bloom6132 (submissions). The final round was very productive, and besides 15 FAs, contestants achieved 75 FAC reviews, 88 GAs and 108 GAN reviews. Altogether, Wikipedia has benefited greatly from the activities of WikiCup competitors all through the contest. Well done everyone!

All those who reached the final will receive awards and the following special awards will be made, based on high performance in particular areas of content creation. So that the finalists do not have an undue advantage, these prizes are awarded to the competitor who scored the highest in any particular field in a single round, or in the event of a tie, to the overall leader in this field.

Next year's competition will begin on 1 January. You are invited to sign up to participate; the WikiCup is open to all Wikipedians, both novices and experienced editors, and we hope to see you all in the 2021 competition. Until then, it only remains to once again congratulate our worthy winners, and thank all participants for their involvement!

Round 1 of the competition has finished; it was a high-scoring round with 21 contestants scoring more than 100 points. Everyone with a positive score moves on to Round 2, with 55 contestants qualifying. You will need to finish among the top thirty-two contestants in Round 2 if you are to qualify for Round 3. Our top scorers in Round 1 were:

  • New York (state) Epicgenius led the field with a featured article, nine good articles and an assortment of other submissions, specialising on buildings and locations in New York, for a total of 945 points.
  • Republic of Venice Bloom6132 was close behind with 896 points, largely gained from 71 "In the news" items, mostly recent deaths.
  • Scotland ImaginesTigers, who has been editing Wikipedia for less than a year, was in third place with 711 points, much helped by bringing League of Legends to featured article status, exemplifying how bonus points can boost a contestant's score.
  • Rwanda Amakuru came next with 708 points, Kigali being another featured article that scored maximum bonus points.
  • Flag of the United Nations.svg Ktin, new to the WikiCup, was in fifth place with 523 points, garnered from 15 DYKs and 34 "In the news" items.
  • Botswana The Rambling Man scored 511 points, many from featured article candidate reviews and from football related DYKs.
  • Standard of Oliver Cromwell (1653–1659).svg Gog the Mild, last year's runner-up, came next with 498 points, from a featured article and numerous featured article candidate reviews.
  • Bennington Flag.svg Hog Farm, at 452, scored for a featured article, four good articles and a number of reviews.
  • United States Le Panini, another newcomer to the WikiCup, scored 438 for a featured article and three good articles.
  • England Lee Vilenski, last year's champion, scored 332 points, from a featured article and various other sport-related topics.

These contestants, like all the others, now have to start again from scratch. In Round 1, contestants achieved eight featured articles, three featured lists and one featured picture, as well as around two hundred DYKs and twenty-seven ITNs. They completed 97 good article reviews, nearly double the 52 good articles they claimed. Contestants also claimed for 135 featured article and featured list candidate reviews. There is no longer a requirement to mention your WikiCup participation when undertaking these reviews.

Remember that any content promoted after the end of Round 1 but before the start of Round 2 can be claimed in Round 2. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is a good article candidate, a featured process, or something else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews.

The second round of the 2021 WikiCup has now finished; it was a high-scoring round and contestants needed 61 points to advance to Round 3. There were some impressive efforts in the round, with the top eight contestants all scoring more than 400 points. A large number of the points came from the 12 featured articles and the 110 good articles achieved in total by contestants, as well as the 216 good article reviews they performed; the GAN backlog drive and the stay-at-home imperative during the COVID-19 pandemic may have been partially responsible for these impressive figures.

Our top scorers in Round 2 were:

  • Botswana The Rambling Man, with 2963 points from three featured articles, 20 featured article reviews, 37 good articles, 73 good article reviews, as well as 22 DYKs.
  • New York (state) Epicgenius, with 1718 points from one featured article, 29 good articles, 16 DYKs and plenty of bonus points.
  • Republic of Venice Bloom6132, with 990 points from 13 DYKs and 64 "In the news" items, mostly recent deaths.
  • Bennington Flag.svg Hog Farm, with 834 points from two featured articles, five good articles, 14 featured article reviews and 15 good article reviews.
  • England Gog the Mild, with 524 points from two featured articles and four featured article reviews.
  • England Lee Vilenski, with 501 points from one featured article, three good articles, six featured article reviews and 25 good article reviews.
  • Transgender Pride flag.svg Sammi Brie, with 485 points from four good articles, eight good article reviews and 27 DYKs, on US radio and television stations.
  • Flag of the United Nations.svg Ktin, with 436 points from four good articles, seven DYKs and 11 "In the news" items.

Please remember that DYKs cannot be claimed until they have appeared on the main page. As we enter the third round, any content promoted after the end of Round 2 but before the start of Round 3 can be claimed now, and anything you forgot to claim in Round 2 cannot! Remember too, that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them (except for at the end of each round, when you must claim them before the cut-off date/time).

Wikipedia Wars and the Israel-Palestine conflict...please fill out my survey?[edit]

Hello :) I am writing my MA dissertation on Wikipedia Wars and the Israel-Palestine conflict, and I noticed that you have contributed to those pages. My dissertation will look at the process of collaborative knowledge production on the Israel-Palestine conflict, and the effect it has on bias in the articles. This will involve understanding the profiles and motivations of editors, contention/controversy and dispute resolution in the talk pages, and bias in the final article.

For more information, you can check out my meta-wiki research page or my user page, where I will be posting my findings when I am done.

I would greatly appreciate if you could take 5 minutes to fill out this quick survey before 8 August 2021.

Participation in this survey is entirely voluntary and anonymous. There are no foreseeable risks nor benefits to you associated with this project.

Thanks so much,

Sarah Sanbar

WikiCup 2021 September newsletter[edit]

The fourth round of the competition has finished with over 500 points being required to qualify for the final round. It was a hotly competitive round with two contestants, Botswana The Rambling Man and New York (state) Epicgenius, each scoring over 3000 points, and six contestants scoring over 1000. All but one of the finalists achieved one or more FAs during the round, the exception being Republic of Venice Bloom6132 who demonstrated that 61 "in the news" items produces an impressive number of points. Other contestants who made it to the final are Standard of Oliver Cromwell (1653–1659).svg Gog the Mild, England Lee Vilenski, Zulu (International Code of Signals) BennyOnTheLoose, Rwanda Amakuru and Bennington Flag.svg Hog Farm. However, all their points are now swept away and everyone starts afresh in the final round.

Round 4 saw the achievement of 18 featured articles and 157 good articles. George Floyd mural Bilorv scored for a 25-article good topic on Black Mirror but narrowly missed out on qualifying for the final round. There was enthusiasm for FARs, with 89 being performed, and there were 63 GARs and around 100 DYKs during the round. As we start round 5, we say goodbye to the eight competitors who didn't quite make it to the final round; thank you for the useful contributions you have made to the Cup and Wikipedia, and we hope you will join us again next year. For other contestants, 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 14 days of "earning" them.

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 Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs!

All those who reached the final round will win awards. The following special awards will be made based on high performance in particular areas of content creation and review. Awards will be handed out in the next few days.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in this year's WikiCup, whether they made it to the final round or not, and particular congratulations to the newcomers to the WikiCup, some of whom did very well. Wikipedia has benefitted greatly from the quality creations, expansions and improvements made, and the numerous reviews performed. Thanks to all who have taken part and helped out with the competition, not forgetting User:Jarry1250, who runs the scoring bot.

If you have views on whether the rules or scoring need adjustment for next year's contest, please comment on the WikiCup talk page. Next year's competition will begin on 1 January. You are invited to sign up to participate; the WikiCup is open to all Wikipedians, both novices and experienced editors, and we hope to see you all in the 2022 competition. Until then, it only remains to once again congratulate our worthy winners, and thank all participants for their involvement!

Administrators will no longer be autopatrolled[edit]

A recently closed Request for Comment (RFC) reached consensus to remove Autopatrolled from the administrator user group. You may, similarly as with Edit Filter Manager, choose to self-assign this permission to yourself. This will be implemented the week of December 13th, but if you wish to self-assign you may do so now. To find out when the change has gone live or if you have any questions please visit the Administrator's Noticeboard. 20:07, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

How we will see unregistered users[edit]

Hi!

You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

WikiCup 2022 March newsletter[edit]

And so ends the first round of the WikiCup. Last year anyone who scored more than zero points moved on to Round 2, but this was not the case this year, and a score of 13 or more was required to proceed. The top scorers in Round 1 were:

  • New York (state) Epicgenius, a finalist last year, who led the field with 1906 points, gained from 32 GAs and 19 DYKs, all on the topic of New York buildings.
  • Christmas Island AryKun, new to the contest, was second with 1588 points, having achieved 2 FAs, 11 GAs and various other submissions, mostly on the subject of birds.
  • Kingdom of Scotland Bloom6132, a WikiCup veteran, was in third place with 682 points, garnered from 51 In the news items and several DYKs.
  • Philadelphia GhostRiver was close behind with 679 points, gained from achieving 12 GAs, mostly on ice hockey players, and 35 GARs.
  • United Nations Kavyansh.Singh was in fifth place with 551 points, with an FA, a FL, and many reviews.
  • Flag of Provo, Utah (1989–2015).svg SounderBruce was next with 454 points, gained from an FA and various other submissions, mostly on United States highways.
  • United Nations Ktin, another WikiCup veteran, was in seventh place with 412 points, mostly gained from In the news items.

These contestants, like all the others who qualified for Round 2, now have to start scoring points again from scratch. Between them, contestants completed reviews of a large number of good articles as the contest ran concurrently with a GAN backlog drive. Well done all! To qualify for Round 3, contestants will need to finish Round 2 among the top thirty-two participants.

Remember that any content promoted after the end of Round 1 but before the start of Round 2 can be claimed in Round 2. Anything that should have been claimed for in Round 1 is no longer eligible for points. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed.

Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

WikiCup 2022 May newsletter[edit]

The second round of the 2022 WikiCup has now finished. It was a high-scoring round and contestants needed 115 points to advance to round 3. There were some very impressive efforts in round 2, with the top seven contestants all scoring more than 500 points. A large number of the points came from the 11 featured articles and the 79 good articles achieved in total by contestants.

Our top scorers in round 2 were:

  1. New York (state) Epicgenius, with 1264 points from 2 featured article, 4 good articles and 18 DYKs. Epicgenius was a finalist last year but has now withdrawn from the contest as he pursues a new career path.
  2. Christmas Island AryKun, with 1172 points from two featured articles, one good article and a substantial number of featured article and good article reviews.
  3. Kingdom of Scotland Bloom6132, with 605 points from 44 in the news items and 4 DYKs.
  4. Transgender Pride flag.svg Sammi Brie, with 573 points from 8 GAs and 21 DYKs.
  5. Vexilloid of the Roman Empire.svg Ealdgyth, with 567 points from 11 GAs and 34 good and featured article reviews.
  6. United States Panini!, with 549 points from 1 FA, 4 GAs and several other sources.
  7. England Lee Vilenski, with 545 points from 1 FA, 4 GAs and a number of reviews.

The rules for featured and good article reviews require the review to be of sufficient length; brief quick fails and very short reviews will generally not be awarded points. Remember also that DYKs cannot be claimed until they have appeared on the main page. As we enter the third round, any content promoted after the end of round 2 but before the start of round 3 can be claimed now, and anything you forgot to claim in round 2 cannot! Remember too, that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them. When doing GARs, please make sure that you check that all the GA criteria are fully met.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article nominations, a featured process, or anything else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required).
