Lack of signature and odd tone of Template:Unreviewednote-NPF[edit]

{{Unreviewednote-NPF}} (automatically sent to a user when unreviewing their article, when the unreviewer has left a note for them) lacks a signature. (Example of use here.) Possibly this is because it can't decide who the message is from - although it opens with a title of "I have unreviewed a page you curated" (and is created as an edit by the unreviewer), it goes on to refer to the unreviewer in the third person.

Would this make more sense as a straight, signed copy of {{Unreviewednonote-NPF}}, with the "note" added in italics instead of the "Thank you.", as is the case with many other templates? --McGeddon (talk) 18:00, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

RfC concerning Wikipedia:Deferred changes[edit]

There is currently an ongoing Request for Comment regarding whether or not we should defer possible vandalism to Special:PendingChanges and, if so, how to implement it. Please see Wikipedia:Deferred changes/Request for comment 2016 for the RfC. Thank you. Gestrid (talk) 21:49, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Update: The RfC has closed, and it has passed in its entirety. See the closer's remarks for more information about implementation. Gestrid (talk) 00:45, 12 November 2016 (UTC)
Also see Wikipedia:Deferred changes/Implementation for more on how this will be implemented. Gestrid (talk) 05:28, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:ReviewingWikipedia:Reviewing pending changes – To avoid confusion with what is done by New Page Reviewers, AfC reviewers, Good Article reviewers, Peer reviewers, and reviewing of Wikipedia content or edits in the general sense. : Noyster (talk), 13:41, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Support - This has been needed for a long time. Gestrid (talk) 18:31, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Support - No brainer. -- Kautilya3 (talk) 19:12, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Support Makes sense. -- ferret (talk) 19:38, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Support - sensible. Just a thought: would it be better to have a common guideline on content patrolling (what we call reviewing on this page) in general? The guideline and process for pending changes patrollers is basically the same as new page patrollers and vandalism patrollers, at least. Ivanvector (Talk/Edits) 19:41, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Support per all of the above, and move Wikipedia:Reviewing (disambiguation) to Wikipedia:Reviewing. (As well as probably retargeting Wikipedia:Review and Wikipedia:REVIEW to the disambiguation page.) Steel1943 (talk) 22:23, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Support Per Noyster (above and below). Lourdes 04:07, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Today's Featured Article "view history" toolbar link[edit]

Just a note for reviewers interested in today's Featured Article. TFA History Link is a user script which adds a link to the top toolbar for viewing Special:History/Today's Featured Article in a Recent Changes format. It is primarily designed for Featured Article contributors, reviewers and recent changes patrollers to quickly see TFA revisions. The source can be found here. Lourdes 11:29, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi again Lourdes, thanks for this information but was it meant to be posted here? Although it's called Wikipedia talk:Reviewing, this talk page is concerned only with reviewing edits to articles under Pending changes protection. It seems quite unlikely that an article under this form of protection would come up for TFA. The potential for confusion over the different meanings of "reviewing" is exactly why a change of title is being considered in the section just above this one: Noyster (talk), 19:23, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
Hi Noyster how are you doing? Good to see you around. And yeah absolutely. Do please remove this message whenever you want. No sweat. See you then. Lourdes 04:06, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

When will the pending changes from a page be approved?[edit]

Hello everyone. There is a page that has pending changes for some time now and i was wondering when will they be approved, checked? The page i am referring to is: https://fi.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Atradius&stable=0&redirect=no Many thanks in advance 11:21, 10 March 2017 (UTC) Clau_clau19 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Clau clau19 (talkcontribs)

Did you mean to post this query here? This is the English Wikipedia, but your query is about a page at the Finnish Wikipedia. RivertorchFIREWATER 12:25, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
Yes that is the page i want to have checked. sorry i thought you can post for any of them here. can you please direct me where i can ask about this particular page? thank you Clau clau19 (talk) 12:32, 10 March 2017 (UTC)Clau clau19
If you speak Finnish, you might begin by asking here. Each language's Wikipedia is its own separate project with its own policies and permissions, so unfortunately it's unlikely that anyone who will read your post on this page will be able to help. RivertorchFIREWATER 13:43, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
Thank you Rivertorchfor your help. Have a great friday. Clau clau19 (talk) 13:47, 10 March 2017 (UTC)Clau clau19
