Number of "pages in your filtered list" not changing[edit]

This has been talked about almost two years ago (see Wikipedia_talk:Page_Curation/Archive_6#.23_of_articles), but is there any chance of this being fixed? The number in the upper right corner changes when you change a "Show:" filter (unreviewed pages, reviewed pages, etc.), but not when you change a "That:" filter (have no categories, are orphaned, etc.). ~EdGl! 02:11, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Stub tagging[edit]

This is creating a huge backlog at Category:Stubs (which is a deprecated category) because it tags things with Template:Stub, instead of one of the many other stub templates.  Liam987(talk) 00:43, 19 March 2015 (UTC)


For some reason, I can not access page curation from the new pages feed. I can still edit wikitext, but I do not have page curation. -Will2022 (talk) 20:50, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Lots of user and user talk pages showing up red[edit]

For me at least, when I use New Page Patrol, often the usernames and corresponding talk pages of users with user and talk pages will show up in red rather than blue. Does anyone know why this might be happening? Everymorning talk 23:35, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Proposal: Suppress the "unreviewed" notification if the text field is left blank[edit]

There are times when a reviewed article is marked as unreviewed so that it will remain in the queue so other reviewers can still see it. This is sometimes necessary when overly eager page reviewers improperly or prematurely tags an article. Unreviewing should not generate a user talk page notification unless the text box has a message in it. It consistently generates confusion (example). I propose that the WMF developers responsible for this functionality change it so that a notification is not sent if the text field is empty.

Who can use page curation?[edit]

As autoconfirmed user with more than 500 edits and over 37 articles and familiar with Wikipedia guidelines, can i use page curation log to mark new articles as reviewed?Is it require prior permission? Zarghun11 (talk) 15:34, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Glitch with deletion nominations[edit]

Articles that have been nominated for deletion keep coming up as "reviewed" or "unreviewed" in the feed, instead of having the black garbage can icon. --Sammy1339 (talk) 17:38, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

I'm seeing this as well and it's inconsistent. Here is one nominated for CSD with a garbage can icon:[1]. Here is one nominated for CSD with a green check mark icon:[2] Does WMF monitor this page, or does this need to be reported somewhere else? Perhaps Okeyes (WMF) or Quiddity (WMF) can point us in the right direction.- MrX 13:38, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

Marking as reviewed[edit]

I'm not sure if anyone's going to respond to this (I've been thinking about it a lot) but I'm concerned with the amount of articles that are attended to (adding tags, etc.) but are not actually marked as reviewed. I personally have spent a lot of time to mark these as reviewed to ensure it was attended to. I'm given to understand Twinkle/etc. does not mark the article as reviewed. Is this accurate? I wish more articles would actually be marked as it would save time. SwisterTwister talk 05:03, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Using Twinkle for patrolling new pages is practically deprecated along with the old new page feed. Users wishing to patrol new pages should be encouraged to use the new New Pages Feed and its Curation Toolbar which automatically marks articles as patrolled when they are tagged. Anyone who comes across patrollers who are still using the old system are free to leave a kindly suggestion on the patroller's talk page, and at the same time asking them to refer to WP:NPP to learn more about patrolling.- -Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 06:58, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Hold on. When was it determined that Twinkle is deprecated for NPP? I've been using it all along, and I find it more flexible and easy to use. Also, there are cases where tags can be added to an article and it's not desirable to mark them as patrolled. The reason for this is to get addition reviews from other new page patrollers. For example, when it's unclear whether an article makes a claim of significance, but it is evident that the subject is probable not notable and the article is unsourced. I routinely add unsourced and notability tags, and leave it unreviewed so that someone else can look at it.- MrX 12:40, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
ETA: Scroll up three sections to see the other reason that I don't use the page curation toolbar.- MrX 12:42, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Hold on MrX! I did say 'practically' deprecated, so don't try taking things out of context. Please read also everything else I said. Twinkle is probably fine in the hands of experienced patrollers, but we fought tooth and nail to get the New Pages Feed and its Curation Toolbar developed for the very reason that the majority of patrollers have little or no experience at all. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 13:13, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Sorry for jumping to conclusions Kudpung. Indeed I should have read your comment more carefully.- MrX 13:45, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
I have to say, I love the new pages feed and it's more convenient but I'm concerned by some of the pages that aren't marked. Go to the back pages and you'll see: pages are viewed and tagged but not actually marked. SwisterTwister talk 17:03, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
I also see the opposite problem a lot: pages that are recommended for deletion, whether by CSD or PROD, keep coming up as "reviewed". I think maybe something buggy is going on with the software. --Sammy1339 (talk) 20:45, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
The new system is the best thing for Wikipedia since slied bread. After heavy lobbying following some long and detailed research we managed with some intensive real life discussions at the very top of the Foundation's organisation to get them to develop the new new Pages Feed and Curation Toolbar. This was one piece of software in which the WMF really excelled and answered an urgent community requirement. Unfortunately, they don't do this anymore, preferring to impose new top-down software packages which the community never asked for and does not want and due to their committment to those things they have officially withdrawn their support for further development of the NPP Feed. Any bugs that are left in it might be addressed after multiple cries for attention, but it appears that most of them will be left in a long queue as not being of sufficient priority. One downside is that the senior WMF developer who was at least sympathetic to many community requirements has now resigned from the Foundation. The only one who was taking any notice for a while was Okeyes (WMF) and he helped get some bugs addressed but he appears also to have since been reassigned. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 02:57, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
