New page reviewer

I want to reduce the massive backlog. I have been looking at the new pages patrol feed sporadically for the past two months and the backlog keeps increasing. I want to play a part in reviewing the articles. HRShami (talk) 11:19, 21 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I'd like to help out with NPP considering the backlog, and now that I've created a few articles I feel like I'm ready. Suntooooth, it/he (talk/contribs) 18:44, 26 June 2024 (UTC)\[reply]

Reason for requesting new page reviewer rights

As an experienced Wiki editor, I am requesting new page reviewer rights to help maintain the quality and accuracy of new pages. Your approval would allow me to contribute more effectively to wiki community. SparrowQ (talk) 18:30, 30 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Can I resubmit request or wait for approval ? SparrowQ (talk) 20:10, 30 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I've had previous experience, had it on trial period for a month during the back-drive, and I feel like I can especially do more. Noorullah (talk) 11:14, 3 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

 Done. Hey man im josh (talk) 11:38, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hello there, I am interested tn helping out in new page reviewing as there are very large articles backlog and love to do so. Xegma(talk) 07:10, 11 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Question, though I am not an administrator, I see that you have published accepted AFC submissions, even if they lack citations or are in need of some fixing. And some have orange banners on them. Why is this? — 48JCL 01:01, 17 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@48JCL: As they should. The standard at acceptance at AfC is that the article would probably survive an AfD. Nothing more. Declining a draft for surmountable problems like a lack of citations or pretty much anything covered by a cleanup banner is inappropriate. – Joe (talk) 08:18, 19 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I spot checked the 4 most recent accepts and they had lots of citations at time of acceptance. Feel free to link to the specific draft accepts you are concerned with. A complete lack of citations is a valid draftification reason and valid AFC decline reason, but I am not seeing that here. A major lack of citations such as entire paragraphs missing a citation (and also not supported by any WP:GENREFs) could be a valid decline reason (WP:V is policy after all). But it may also be reasonable to accept a draft that is mostly cited and just missing a couple citations, such as Draft:Norah Fulcher. –Novem Linguae (talk) 13:33, 19 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I would like to request new page reviewer rights to help review newly-created articles and lower the backlog. I have accepted lots of drafts at AFC and participated in many AfDs with deep discussions to exhibit my knowledge of notability, as I was advised previously. Thanks!

I actively edit article and patrol "recent changes" to fight vandalism using ultraviolet and twinkle, I also created and help expanding a few articles. I notice that very high backlog and want to help with that. I want to help with Philippine related, Anime related, and Japan related articles. Thanks. Warm Regards, Miminity (talk) (contribs) 08:31, 21 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for volunteering @Miminity, but I'm afraid I'm not enough experience with the deletion process to feel comfortable granting a trial at this point in time. I encourage you to spend some time at WP:AFD and make policy based votes to show that you're comfortable evaluating notability. Alternatively, you can apply to help out at Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation.  Not done. Hey man im josh (talk) 11:50, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I have been requested by a user to review his articles: User talk:Mika1h#Game engine coverage. Might as well review some other articles too but I don't plan to do it long-term. Mika1h (talk) 19:37, 21 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

 Done for a two-month trial. Thank you for volunteering, and please re-apply roughly a week or so before the permission is set to expire. Hey man im josh (talk) 11:46, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Requesting extension of new page reviewer permission following three-month trial. Have enjoyed the work and would like to continue. Posting now since I will be off the grid for early August when the current perm expires. (Courtesy ping to Clovermoss who granted the trial.) Dclemens1971 (talk) 01:26, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Hey man im josh: I did plan on looking into this before it expired 😅 but no harm done. Clovermoss🍀 (talk) 13:46, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Wait I'm super confused now looking at the user rights log [2]. It says it expired in August but it's not August. Novem Linguae any idea what's going on? Clovermoss🍀 (talk) 13:50, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
That's normal behaviour @Clovermoss. We just simply wait and the perm will not be removed :) Hey man im josh (talk) 13:52, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
It is? I genuinely didn't realize that. I don't think I've seen this before (but okay). My other question looking at this is if you actually extended the right? It looks like it expires the same time as before. Clovermoss🍀 (talk) 13:54, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Clovermoss: That's just the other weird quirk of it that every admin working at perm eventually finds out about. If you try to change their rights, you'll see it's set to "does not expire". Hey man im josh (talk) 13:59, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Applying for a trial period to show my ability as well as to reduce the backlog. Twinkle1990 (talk) 15:27, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done, taking into account the simultaneously-filed autopatrol request (Special:Diff/1236045148#User:Twinkle1990), which raises concerns of excessive permissions requests, coupled with significant English errors and temperament issues. signed, Rosguill talk 16:03, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Rosguill please go per this diff. Denying admins are in massive trouble. Twinkle1990 (talk) 16:16, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I think you have misappraised this situation. signed, Rosguill talk 16:32, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
How come it is Misappraisal while you cited a diff and in reply I gave you another diff? Confused?? Twinkle1990 (talk) 16:36, 22 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
