    Tech I created[edit]

    Novem Linguae's user scripts (VE)
    # of users Name Description S++ US/L
    219 CiteHighlighter Highlights 1,800 sources green, yellow, or red depending on reliability. Mainly pulls its data from WP:RSP, WP:NPPSG and WikiProject reliable sources lists. x x
    106 GANReviewTool Quickly and easily close good article nominations. Takes care of {{atop}}ing the discussion and changing the talk page templates. x x
    40 VisualEditorEverywhere Displays the Visual Editor "Edit" tab and "Edit" section link on pages that don't normally have them: templates, talk pages, Wikipedia namespace. x x
    32 NPPLinks Adds WP:BEFORE, copyvio check, duplicate article check, and other useful New Page Patrol links to the left menu. I like to mouse wheel click these links, which opens them in new tabs without losing focus on the current tab. Includes a professor h-index search. x x
    27 DetectSNG.js Scans a list of 1,600 SNG keywords such as "National Football League" and, if found, displays them at the top of the article page, to help with determining SNG eligibility. x

    20 UserRightsDiff.js When viewing Special:UserRights, easily see what perm was added or removed. x
    18 WatchlistAFD.js Automatically watchlist the AFD pages of your AFC accepts and NPP curations for 6 months, so you can see when stuff is AFD'd and you can calibrate your reviewing. By default, the patroller is not notified of AFD nominations, so this helps fix that. For user profiles, can also "Watchlist SPI" and "Watchlist RFA". x
    12 SpeciesHelper For species articles, tries to add the correct speciesbox, category, taxonbar, and stub template. x x
    12 DetectPromo.js If promotional words are detected, displays them in orange at the top of the article.
    11 DetectG4G5.js If an unreviewed article was created by a blocked user, or has had an AFD, displays a warning, so you can investigate if it needs CSD G4 or G5.
    9 Links.js Adds links to the left menu, including a user's common.js/global.js/vector.js, central auth, subpages, rename log, global lock log. Also adds pending changes.
    8 ReviewStatus Displays whether or not a mainspace page is marked as reviewed x x
    5 TemplateTaxonomyAddCite Create subpages of Template:Taxonomy more easily by clicking a button to add citation wikicode.
    3 CWWEditSummary.js When copying within Wikipedia, makes it easier to leave an edit summary mentioning attribution

    Thank you for alerting me about that situation. A plethora of non notable possible undisclosed paid promotional articles (over a dozen) as of now have been unearthed due to that singular act of yours. Thank you for your diligence. Celestina007 (talk) 22:57, 19 December 2021 (UTC)
    No Spam Barnstar Hires.png The No Spam Barnstar
    Article spamming is an existential threat to the collaborative project and I also find that most editors tend to shy away from this area of editing, but not you! A critical ping you made to me, led not only to the utter deletion of two third of the dubious articles they created, but also led to the nabbing of an LTA. Thank you so much for striving to maintain and sustain the integrity of articles on mainspace. Celestina007 (talk) 19:20, 2 January 2022 (UTC)

    Your NPP work is extraordinaire,
    Behind-the-scenes tasks that few are aware;
    I'm one of the few who know what you do,
    As our needs arise; it is you we look to.
    And we're more than happy to buy you a beer,
    A reward for you keeping your ass in high gear!

    Dear Novem Linguae,
    Please receive my belated but heartfelt appreciation for saving the day on the Wikipedia:Good article reassessment/February 2023 effort to re-assess Good articles, that aided in the DC Copyright contributor investigation.
    When I first proposed the process in the January 2023 AN discussion, I envisioned it working something like procedural Featured article reviews; I had no idea that there wasn't really a GAR process in place to deal with several hundred deficient GAs, and the work turned out to be much more complicated than I thought. It simply would not have been possible--or at least, would not have been accomplished so seamlessly--without your effort, competence, thoroughness, and efficiency.
    And besides all of that, you are just so nice to work with :) Best regards, SandyGeorgia (Talk) 19:51, 23 March 2023 (UTC)
