Thanks WikiAviator. I did the "Wikipedia Adventure". I've edited Wikipedia without a registered account before, but the adventure taught me a few things I didn't know. Eostrix (talk) 10:24, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

NecticlesEdit

Given the edits to Aussie, suggesting they're in Australia, where it would have been 8 in the evening on New Years Eve, and the obsession with necticles (probably because it sounds like testicles) it looks like two little kids who've been given tablets and parked in a quiet corner to keep them amused and out of the way 'til midnight. WP:ILLEGIT wasn't written with this situation in mind. On the bright side, they seem to have kids' attention spans and have moved on already. Happy New Year, Cabayi (talk) 09:37, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

No worries, either we'll see them again or not, not a biggie for this to slide if they just vanish or by some chance become productive editors. Eostrix (talk) 09:41, 31 December 2019 (UTC)


Ezra LaventEdit

Hey, why was the change I made reversed. I could give links to videos by Ezra Lavent where he asks people to donate money to pay for his flights to the UK

You need a good source calling him that label. A reputable mainstream media source or a book or something. You provided none.Eostrix (talk) 17:22, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

How about these https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlMYAKdTflw at 12:50 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=venjsrPDCgw at 6:30 Plane and cab, underground not good enough? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoMfMbIYnVg 7 mins As you can see in each one the man himself asks for money to fund his holidays to the UK. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.28.103.25 (talk) 17:30, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

Not good enough as a source. If you want to call him an "eBegger", you will need to find a source like the BBC, NBC, or Wall Street Journal calling him that - and that could be the beginning of a discussion. Eostrix (talk) 17:33, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

User: NormanGear persistently disruptive conductEdit

Dear Eostrix,

Thank you for reverting User:NormanGear on the Spaniards page. This user has been trying to add the Moorish genetic contribution on Portuguese people equivalent page for the past couple of weeks. They reported me for harassment. Subsequently they revert every single edit I add to the Spaniards page, invoking repetition and saturation. Their intention is quite clear: Try to add Jewish/North African genetics to the Portuguese people and conversely make this as irrelevant as possible in the Spaniards/Spanish people equivalent. This is both unethical and incorrect as both nations have some genetic markers from both Jews and Berbers. If this is not an issue in the Portuguese people page, why is this user making it so in the Spaniards page? I’ve reported them before and today again. They are not engaging on Talk either even though they suggested it. Many thanks for your intervention on this. It is very frustrating to have to face this kind of belligerent behaviour. Particularly as it is totally unreasonable. Melroross (talk) 18:48, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

I wasn't intending to take sides, but some of NormanGear's editing (the large scale insertion, then removals (6 consecutive edits) didn't seem right to me (on recent change patrol) as well as the removal of whole sections. I suggest you try a WP:RFC to settle this as edit-warring won't lead anywhere good. Eostrix (talk) 06:19, 1 January 2020 (UTC)

GreetingsEdit

Roger AilesEdit

Roger Ailes is a sexual predator and it's a proven fact in lawsuits. 49.207.56.149 (talk) 15:49, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

The sexual harassment case is properly described in the second sentence of the lead: "He was the chairman and CEO of Fox News and Fox Television Stations, from which he was fired in July of 2016 for engaging in multiple sexual harassment cases with 23 known victims". I reverted [2], since using the label in the short description and first sentence is a bit too much. Eostrix (talk) 15:52, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Comments!Edit

Did you see those childish comments left by BoogalooParty88? I've left a warning on his talk page, for all the good it will probably do. WQUlrich (talk) 07:34, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

You are right, he does come across as aggressive, . But at least he is reverting vandalism. He needs to read WP:DENY, I think, on how to deal with trolls. It is odd the new List of richest people in the world is such a vandal magnet, seeing all the vandalism on that real-time list prompted me to vote in the AFD.--Eostrix (talk) 07:39, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for giving him that link. His contribution list is full of similar (and worse) comments. How did he get to the Articles for Review list? Isn't that limited to people who are reviewers? WQUlrich (talk) 07:44, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
Recent changes is on the sidebar on the left (in Desktop mode), it is pretty visible.--Eostrix (talk) 07:45, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
Oh duh. As long as I've been editing, I've never looked at that. All I've seen is the Articles for Review. I'm surprised that list hasn't created some really serious problems. (And how do you even begin to keep up with it?) WQUlrich (talk) 07:59, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
Keeping up, well, there are filters. But monitoring recent changes you aren't remotely even trying to get every change. You're trying to catch some percentage of the bad changes, and followup on users/IPs contribution elsewhere as if they vandalized one article, they might do another. Sometime you just see a random article update that interests you and you jump in and help improve or add stuff. It is all collaborative, you assume other RCP editors will get the ones you don't. And the collective works, the amount of edit conflicts you get attempting to roll back clear vandalism is pretty high.--Eostrix (talk) 08:16, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
Still sounds like quite an effort. Good luck! I think I'll stick with the short list. WQUlrich (talk) 08:38, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

February 2020Edit

  Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made: you may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. Thank you. TFFfan (talk) 11:46, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

@TFFfan: which revert in particular? I hand out warning messages on disruptive edits regularly. In cases I do not hand out a warning message I am usually WP:AGF in regards to the contributor (even though the contribution may be sub-optimal or not constructive).--Eostrix (talk) 11:50, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
If this is Accord, New York, I think the IP was possibly acting in good faith and possibly even right. I thought the IP framed it badly, too opinionated and overly long for the lead. I myself do not have grounds to contest (let alone revert with a minor edit summary) as you did: [3], as I do not have a source with the pronunciation of the town.--Eostrix (talk) 11:56, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

ThanksEdit

For the drink. 🍻 Melroross (talk) 18:22, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

62.31.81.122Edit

Baumann is a bolshevik, his work in UB was parallel to that of NKVD and was aimed at destruction of Polish culture and nation. Thus under no circumstances can he be called Polish. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.31.81.122 (talk) 09:38, 24 February 2020 (UTC)

About French GuianaEdit

I did not add any vandalism. Some other user (199.243.127.18) did. I reverted it but he edited it at the same time and some of his changes ended up on my own revision. Sorry that happened. 79.158.146.211 (talk) 14:55, 25 February 2020 (UTC)

I was triggered by this revert of yours.--Eostrix (talk) 14:57, 25 February 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, I know, it slipped through. The guy editing the article is still vandalizing it, though :/
You reverted yourself. OK - I see 199.243.127.18 is the locus of this.--Eostrix (talk) 15:01, 25 February 2020 (UTC)

Thank you!Edit

If you haven't already, that type of username violation should also be reported to oversight so it can be reviewed and removed from the logs if necessary. I reported it just in case.

Thank you for catching that one! Much appreciated.

EvergreenFir (talk) 17:40, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

I have not sent an email to oversight, thank you for doing that. I will on the next one of this sort. Was I correct to report them to AIV or should I have done just oversight?--Eostrix (talk) 17:43, 4 March 2020 (UTC)
Honestly, just oversight in the future as there are less places to remove that username from. But AIV is a good second choice. For cases where the user is spamming/fast editing, AIV + oversight might be better for fastest response. More borderline cases (e.g., Celebrity_Name_is_a_dumbass) where it's just insulting but not libelous can just go to AIV usually. EvergreenFir (talk) 17:47, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

New page reviewer grantedEdit

Hi Eostrix. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group. Please check back at WP:PERM in case your user right is time limited or probationary. This user group allows you to review new pages through the Curation system and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or nominate them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is vital to maintaining the integrity of the encyclopedia. If you have not already done so, you must read the tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the deletion policy. If you need any help or want to discuss the process, you are welcome to use the new page reviewer talk page. In addition, please remember:

  • Be nice to new editors. They are usually not aware that they are doing anything wrong. Do make use of the message feature when tagging pages for maintenance so that they are aware.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted. Please be formal and polite in your approach to them – even if they are not.
  • If you are not sure what to do with a page, don't review it – just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Accuracy is more important than speed. Take your time to patrol each page. Use the message feature to communicate with article creators and offer advice as much as possible.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you also may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time.

Maria StuartEdit

Dear Eostrix,

Thank you for your help.

Moreover, I'm not used with the English disambiguation page. So I fear to have failed to create a successful one in order to lead to the right biography page for people who tried to type only the tittle: Maria Stuart.

I've tried to create the one: Maria Stuart (disambiguation). But it need to be completed. Would you be so kind to help me in completing it. Sorry for my not clear English ;-((

Best wishes. - Alter005 [ --> talk] 13:40, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

I am not sure a disambig page is needed from the German name. I think I shall leave the disambig page to someone else to review.--Eostrix (talk) 13:43, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

About Person is famousEdit

Hello User:Eostrix can I ask you if this person has a notability to has a page in this wiki, He is well-known and he has 2 books in amazon and kobo store And yeniakit newspaper one of the famous newspaper in turkey talked about him also When you search for his name on Google " ali al suleiman kimdir hayati " you will see Featured Snippets information about him appear on the first page https://www.yeniakit.com.tr/haber/ali-al-suleiman-kimdir-1281918.html https://www.thefamousbirthdays.com/people/ali-al-suleiman https://www.arageek.com/bio/ali-al-suleiman https://www.timeturk.com/ali-al-suleiman-kimdir/haber-1510243 https://www.agridahaber.com/biyografi/gazeteci-yazar-ali-al-suleiman-kimdir-h108080.html https://www.agrisoz.com/ali-al-suleiman-kimdir-73585h.htm https://www.biyografya.com/biyografi/23516 https://aliqtisadi.com/شخصيات/علي-السليمان/ https://www.imdb.com/name/nm11203196/ --Alex bonson90 (talk) 07:49, 15 June 2020 (UTC)

@Alex bonson90:, probably not, but possibly yes. Most 24 year old translators/journalists with some social media following are not notable, but some may be. It is plausible that there are enough in-depth reliable sources on him making him notable, but this requires an assessment of the source material which is probably mostly in Arabic and Turkish, and I'm not the best in those languages. To summarize, I think it is borderline. I wouldn't CSD it if I were reviewing, but it very possibly wouldn't survive AfD and I would possibly AfD it. IMDB and thefamousbirthdays are not sources that establish notability, I think. The rest I am unsure of.--Eostrix (talk) 08:01, 15 June 2020 (UTC)
You might want to ask at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Turkey and/or Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Syria, people there will be more familiar with the language, sources, and possibly the person.--Eostrix (talk) 08:04, 15 June 2020 (UTC)

New Page Reviewer newsletter June 2020Edit

Hello Eostrix,

Your help can make a difference

NPP Sorting can be a great way to find pages needing new page patrolling that match your strengths and interests. Using ORES, it divides articles into topics such as Literature or Chemistry and on Geography. Take a look and see if you can find time to patrol a couple pages a day. With over 10,000 pages in the queue, the highest it's been since ACPERM, your help could really make a difference.

Google Adds New Languages to Google Translate

In late February, Google added 5 new languages to Google Translate: Kinyarwanda, Odia (Oriya), Tatar, Turkmen and Uyghur. This expands our ability to find and evaluate sources in those languages.

Discussions and Resources
  • A discussion on handling new article creation by paid editors is ongoing at the Village Pump.
  • Also at the Village Pump is a discussion about limiting participation at Articles for Deletion discussion.
  • A proposed new speedy deletion criteria for certain kinds of redirects ended with no consensus.
  • Also ending with no change was a proposal to change how we handle certain kinds of vector images.

I have unreviewed a page you curatedEdit

Hi, I'm Dibbydib. I wanted to let you know that I saw the page you reviewed, DESelect, and have marked it as unpatrolled. If you have any questions, please ask them on my talk page. Thank you.

(Message delivered via the Page Curation tool, on behalf of the reviewer.)

dibbydib 10:51, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

Hey User:Dibbydib, I sent the page to AfD, once sent to AfD the patrol tool marks the page automatically as patrolled, probably since if it survives AfD (not likely in this particular case) then it will have undergone under the hands of more editors than a lone patrol member. In short, while I do not object to this page being un-patrolled I do not think this is needed once at AfD.--Eostrix  (🦉 hoot hoot🦉]) 10:54, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

OopsEdit

Seems like i put up an article at Afd the same time you tagged it for CSD, KH Records, should i remove the Afd tag, then.Megan Barris (Lets talk📧) 08:18, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

@Synoman Barris: looks like we were doing things in parallel, when I speedied it I didn't see your tags but when I saved it went in a moment after your tags, and your afd went in a moment after the CSD :). I think you should leave the AfD in place. If the speedy is declined, then the AfD will run. If the CSD is accepted, then you can close the AfD as speedy delete.--Eostrix  (🦉 hoot hoot🦉) 08:27, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

@Field Marshal Aryan: I would've given him another chance prior to reporting to AIV (as your two warning are very close to one another, and Q-WKPA is trying to construct some content, all be it maybe misguided), however I tend to agree with your ultimate conclusion.--Eostrix  (🦉 hoot hoot🦉) 11:06, 13 July 2020 (UTC)

Deletion of Vyacheslav ZvizhinskiyEdit

Hi Eostrix, Kindly remove the deletion message from my talk page. I am not the creator of the article. You must notify the real creator of the article. DMySon 10:25, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

@DMySon:. Done. My apologies. What happened is that I had Twinkle open while you (correctly) moved the article. This ended up notifying you (because of the redirect you were the creator of). I then went around correcting the title issue at the AfD (which was at the all-caps name) and notifying the original article creator. While notifying the original article creator, by copy pasting what I placed on your page, I managed to bungle up again and undo my reversion of the notice (I changed from all-caps to the new title, but I saved this on your page instead of their page). Twinkle gets a bit funny when things happen in parallel (I had an issue the other day with a CSD that I opened prior to admin speedy-deleting it but clicked the Twinkle button seconds after - which ended up creating a new article with a CSD tag), and I messed up here as well (and Twinkle edits are my responsibility as well). --Eostrix  (🦉 hoot hoot🦉) 10:30, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
Thank You Eostrix, I also added my vote 'Speedy Delete'. DMySon 10:33, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

Redirect of Ruth ColianEdit

Hi Eostrix, I understand a lot of the text written by me in the new article is also relevant to the political party itself, but i think Ruth Culian is relevant enough as a pioneer in her field. She does have a Hebrew page about her, and i believe the information on it is relevant to communities living outside of the land of Israel, so the page could have some value. And it is well sourced. Thank you for any help you can offer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by PeterSallerzi (talkcontribs) 09:26, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

@PeterSallerzi:, can you show that she meets WP:POLITICIAN or Wikipedia:Notability (people) more broadly? --Eostrix  (🦉 hoot hoot🦉) 10:39, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
Well she has 126 search results under "News" - (don't know if it's enough by your standards) and her case in the Israeli supreme court against a religious newspaper that refused to run her ads is important enough, though she lost. I think she's important because very few orthodox women have done what she has done to better the lives of orthodox Jewish women. Once she stepped down, there was no political party. Thanks for your help and good will :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by PeterSallerzi (talkcontribs) 13:51, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
@PeterSallerzi:, the problem is that political candidates always generate PR and this gets covered in the news. If you have strong news sources about her, and stress aspects that are unique to her (as opposed to the party), I am not strongly opposed here. Just be certain to have sources to match Wikipedia:Notability (people). As far as I can tell, with the exception of one 2014 source, the sources you put in the article were primarily about the party not about Colian herself.--Eostrix  (🦉 hoot hoot🦉) 14:06, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Marvelous (rapper)Edit

Hello Eostrix. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Marvelous (rapper), a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: coverage in Hip Hop Weekly and The Source might be sufficient, take it to WP:AFD instead. Thank you. SoWhy 16:09, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

PR/self-written, ending with: "Get the latest on Marvelous on Instagram, Youtube, and Twitter ( @ImMrMarvel )" and "To keep up with Marvelous follow him on Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter at (@ImmrMarvel ).". This does not in my mind rise to an indication of significance.--Eostrix  (🦉 hoot hoot🦉) 07:45, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

You may benefit from using RedWarnEdit

Hello, Eostrix! I'm Ed6767, a developer for RedWarn. I noticed you have been using Twinkle and was wondering if you'd like to try RedWarn, a new modern and user friendly tool specifically designed to improve your editing experience.

RedWarn is currently in use by over two hundred other Wikipedians, and feedback so far has been extremely positive. In fact, in a recent survey of RedWarn users, 90% of users said they would recommend RedWarn to another editor. If you're interested, please see the RedWarn tool page for more information on RedWarn's features and instructions on how to install it. Otherwise, feel free to remove this message from your talk page. If you have any further questions, please ping me or leave a message on RedWarn's talk page at WT:RW. Your feedback is much appreciated! Ed talk! 16:09, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

How do I copy my nomination?Edit

Where do you want me to paste my nomination? This never occurred to me. :D Thank you! :) AngusMEOW (chatterpaw trail) 12:21, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

@AngusMEOW: we must have both had Twinkle open at the same time and I beat you in clicking on the submit button :-). It happens, see User talk:Eostrix#Oops where User:Synoman Barris did an AfD while I CSDed the same article a minute apart. Constructively I suggest you !vote delete in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Rangapori (with the rationale being your nomination).--Eostrix  (🦉 hoot hoot🦉) 12:24, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
Done Thank you for explaining. ^_^ AngusMEOW (chatterpaw trail) 12:30, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

Hello,

Firstly, thanks a lot for reviewing my Cyanea gibsonii page. It helps a lot! Would you also be able to review this article? Thanks in advance :)

Regarding AfD discussionEdit

Hello, regarding Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Georges_Sada#Georges_Sada, one of the serious problems mentioned is that there is no reliable or independent source of Sada being a flag officer. It comes from him, and that's also something several users have brought up in Talk discussions. Also, this fails WP:MILPERSON because "have received significant coverage in multiple verifiable independent, reliable sources." is not met. Thanks! Saucysalsa30 (talk) 15:50, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

I replied at the AfD with sources.--Eostrix  (🦉 hoot hoot🦉) 16:04, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
User:Eostrix Hello, I would advise reading the Opening Post of the AfD, the article Talk page, and the criteria for WP:BIO and WP:MILPERSON. An "independent" source simply relaying what Sada said about himself in a book is not verifiable or reliable, and it is not significant coverage either. It's a passing trivial mention. It is still unreliable primary sourcing as well, since it is what Sada claims of himself. Thanks for understanding. Saucysalsa30 (talk) 16:20, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

New Page Patrol December NewsletterEdit

Hello Eostrix,

 

Year in review

It has been a productive year for New Page Patrol as we've roughly cut the size of the New Page Patrol queue in half this year. We have been fortunate to have a lot of great work done by Rosguill who was the reviewer of the most pages and redirects this past year. Thanks and credit go to JTtheOG and Onel5969 who join Rosguill in repeating in the top 10 from last year. Thanks to John B123, Hughesdarren, and Mccapra who all got the NPR permission this year and joined the top 10. Also new to the top ten is DannyS712 bot III, programmed by DannyS712 which has helped to dramatically reduce the number of redirects that have needed human patrolling by patrolling certain types of redirects (e.g. for differences in accents) and by also patrolling editors who are on on the redirect whitelist.

Reviewer of the Year

John B123 has been named reviewer of the year for 2020. John has held the permission for just over 6 months and in that time has helped cut into the queue by reviewing more than 18,000 articles. His talk page shows his efforts to communicate with users, upholding NPP's goal of nurturing new users and quality over quantity.

NPP Technical Achievement Award

As a special recognition and thank you DannyS712 has been awarded the first NPP Technical Achievement Award. His work programming the bot has helped us patrol redirects tremendously - more than 60,000 redirects this past year. This has been a large contribution to New Page Patrol and definitely is worthy of recognition.
