Redlinks[edit]

You recently, purposefully, added a redlink to Template:Campaignbox Maccabean Revolt dates (which I created). Don't get me wrong. I am well aware of the usefulnes of redlinks and thank you for redlinking Salama. The reason I did not redlink Salama in the Maccabee template is because of what happened when I improved and expanded Template:Neighborhoods of Jerusalem. There were political issues involved with east and west and the green line. But I was thoroughly trounced for including red links. I determined that settling the political issues was more important than fighting over redlinks. For the moment, those redlinks appear on the Talk page in a section entitled TO DO LIST. If you are interested (and have the nerve) to insert those neghborhoods back onto the main page, I will fully support you. (Of course, alphabetically within the appropriate geographic subdivisions.) As for those geographic subdivions and the whole green stuff, that was a compromise reached some time ago. It was a compromise that did not emphasize any one side of the political/nationlistic/jingoistic fight. I hope you will respect that aspect of the template. --@Efrat (talk) 16:35, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure I understand. Is the title "Battle of Salama" politically charged? If so, is there maybe a more neutral title that it could redlink to? I'm sorry if I acted hastily; I didn't realize I was wading into a contentious topic when I added the link. ∴ ZX95 [discuss] 00:37, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
There is no problem with "Battle of Salama". I was merely relating a past experience that scared me away from redlinks. Never mind.--@Efrat (talk) 05:30, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
If there isn't a specific reason to keep the redlink out in this case, I think we should keep it in. I may even right the article at some point :) Cheers, ∴ ZX95 [discuss] 18:36, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

Content Creativity Barnstar Hires.png The Content Creativity Barnstar
We need more editors like you, that are willing to write articles on the more obscure subjects, that are willing to go outside of the easier to access Western subjects and instead tackle things that we really should have here on Wikipedia, but are missing. Keep at it! SilverserenC 12:12, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Working out the details at Wikipedia:Today's article for improvement[edit]

The RFC for TAFI is nearing it's conclusion, and it's time to hammer out the details over at the project's talk page. There are several details of the project that would do well with wider input and participation, such as the article nomination and selection process, the amount and type of articles displayed, the implementation on the main page and other things. I would like to invite you to comment there if you continue to be interested in TAFI's development. --NickPenguin(contribs) 02:45, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

TAFI[edit]

Today's Article For Improvement star.svg

Hello,
In the past few days, Today's Articles for Improvement has gone through many changes.

  • We have modified the process for adding Nominations, which now uses a template/table format and requires only 3 supports for an article to be selected.
  • There is now a Holding Area, where articles are kept for discussion before being selected for a particular date.
  • The TAFI schedule now involves adding 10 articles weekly, chosen from a variety of topics.
  • We now have an Accomplishments page where we will be highlighting our older TAFI articles which have now become quality articles on the Wikipedia.

The Project is almost ready to hit the Main Page, where it will be occupying a section just below "Did you Know" section. Three article from the weekly batch of 7 will be displayed randomly at the main page, the format of which can be seen at the Main Page sandbox. There is also an ongoing discussion at the Main page talk over the final details before we can go forward with the Main Page.

If you have any ideas to discuss with everyone else, please visit the TAFI Talk Page and join in on the ongoing discussions there. You are also invited to add new nominations, and comment and suport on the current ones at the Nominations page. You can also help by helping in the discussions at the Holding Area.

Above all, please do not forget to improve our current Today's Articles for Improvement

Thank you and hoping to have some productive work from you at the Project,

Invitation[edit]

Thank you for using VisualEditor and sharing your ideas with the developers.

Hello, ZX95,

The Editing team is asking for your help with VisualEditor. I am contacting you because you were one of the very first testers of VisualEditor, back in 2012 or early 2013. Please tell them what they need to change to make VisualEditor work better for you. The team has a list of top-priority problems, but they also want to hear about small problems. These problems may make editing less fun, take too much of your time, or be as annoying as a paper cut. The Editing team wants to hear about and try to fix these small things, too. 

You can share your thoughts by clicking this link. You may respond to this quick, simple, anonymous survey in your own language. If you take the survey, then you agree your responses may be used in accordance with these terms. This survey is powered by Qualtrics and their use of your information is governed by their privacy policy.

More information (including a translateable list of the questions) is posted on wiki at mw:VisualEditor/Survey 2015. If you have questions, or prefer to respond on-wiki, then please leave a message on the survey's talk page.

Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:13, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Sır Kıvchak[edit]

Hi ZX95, you have tagged Sir-Kıvchak, claimimg it doesn't meet WP quality standards. It's historical tribe name and only a few documents survive about its origin. Can you please be more specific as to what is missing ? Thanks. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 07:11, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Nedim! Maybe I should clarify: I'm not concerned about the amount of material included on the page -- heavens knows I've had my own experience with obscure and under-documented topics! The problems that caught my eye and led to me to tag the article for cleanup were mostly organizational. For example, information about the etymology of the tribe's name seems to be spread around between different sections, there seem to be more sections than justified by the amount of material, and the last section starts with a sentence containing "however" but it's not clear what is being contrasted. These are pretty minor problems, but I didn't feel confident to fix them myself because I'm not very knowledgeable about the topic and I would probably screw something up, or not know what to do. I hope this makes it more clear what I was driving at with that tag! ∴ ZX95 [discuss] 02:29, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
