Administrators' newsletter – June 2023[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (May 2023).

Guideline and policy news

  • Following an RfC, editors indefinitely site-banned by community consensus will now have all rights, including sysop, removed.
  • As a part of the Wikimedia Foundation's IP Masking project, a new policy has been created that governs the access to temporary account IP addresses. An associated FAQ has been created and individual communities can increase the requirements to view temporary account IP addresses.

Technical news

  • Bot operators and tool maintainers should schedule time in the coming months to test and update their tools for the effects of IP masking. IP masking will not be deployed to any content wiki until at least October 2023 and is unlikely to be deployed to the English Wikipedia until some time in 2024.

Arbitration

  • The arbitration case World War II and the history of Jews in Poland has been closed. The topic area of Polish history during World War II (1933-1945) and the history of Jews in Poland is subject to a "reliable source consensus-required" contentious topic restriction.

“correct” order of Japanese names[edit]

As you may know, in Japanese you usually write the last name first and then the first name, it is the contrary in many Western languages but not all (Hungarian is also an exception. But your edit has also suppressed an Interlanguage link (ill) that gave access to French article, not a very fair edit. Arorae (talk) 16:19, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Arorae - Kuromiya is a scholar living and teaching in the United States, his books appear in card catalogs and on title pages as Hiroaki Kuromiya, and his name should be rendered accordingly on English WP. If there is some sort of interlanguage link to be made, make it without flipping the given name and surname, please. Carrite (talk) 20:39, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Did the SWP or WP youth call themselves the YPSL?[edit]

Hi,

Socialist_Workers_Party_(United_States)#1940_split says that after Shachtman split off,

The minority faction led by Shachtman eventually split away almost 40% of the party's membership and 80% of its youth organization, the Young People's Socialist League, forming the Workers Party.[1]

  1. ^ Myers, Constance. "American Trotskyists: The First Years". Studies in Comparative Communism. 10 (1/2 (Spring/Summer 1977)): 133–151. Shachtman took out with him 40 percent of the membership, but this included 80 percent of the Trotskyist youth and left the party the minuscule sect it had been in Communist League of America years before 1934.34

I know that the Trotskyists had belonged briefly to the SP (and presumably to the YPSL), but when the Trotskyists left (or were forced out of) the SP to form the SWP,

  • did they take the YPSL with them?
  • did they form their own counterpart to the YPSL and the YCL?
  • was their youth group called the YPSL?

and when 80% the Trotskyist youth left Cannon's group for Shachtman's,

  • did they call themselves the YPSL?

I also know that eventually the Workers' Party youth founded the Socialist Youth League (SYL) (while the SWP's youth formed the American Youth for Socialism [AYS]), but I'm unclear on the chronology and very doubtful about this muddled narrative in Wikipedia's SWP article (which I bookmark, but don't work on directly; perhaps you can fix what's faulty).

Any fraternal help much appreciated. —— Shakescene (talk) 04:03, 12 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Shakescene - My belief is that in 1938 there were two YPSLs, but that is from memory rather than sources. I believe the "official" YPSL was controlled by the new SWP and the SPA reorganized the group in parallel. Carrite (talk) 11:58, 13 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New Pages Patrol newsletter June 2023[edit]

Hello Carrite,

New Page Review queue April to June 2023

Backlog

Redirect drive: In response to an unusually high redirect backlog, we held a redirect backlog drive in May. The drive completed with 23851 reviews done in total, bringing the redirect backlog to 0 (momentarily). Congratulations to Hey man im josh who led with a staggering 4316 points, followed by Meena and Greyzxq with 2868 and 2546 points respectively. See this page for more details. The redirect queue is steadily rising again and is steadily approaching 4,000. Please continue to help out, even if it's only for a few or even one review a day.

Redirect autopatrol: All administrators without autopatrol have now been added to the redirect autopatrol list. If you see any users who consistently create significant amounts of good quality redirects, consider requesting redirect autopatrol for them here.

WMF work on PageTriage: The WMF Moderator Tools team, consisting of Sam, Jason and Susana, and also some patches from Jon, has been hard at work updating PageTriage. They are focusing their efforts on modernising the extension's code rather than on bug fixes or new features, though some user-facing work will be prioritised. This will help make sure that this extension is not deprecated, and is easier to work on in the future. In the next month or so, we will have an opt-in beta test where new page patrollers can help test the rewrite of Special:NewPagesFeed, to help find bugs. We will post more details at WT:NPPR when we are ready for beta testers.

Articles for Creation (AFC): All new page reviewers are now automatically approved for Articles for Creation draft reviewing (you do not need to apply at WT:AFCP like was required previously). To install the AFC helper script, visit Special:Preferences, visit the Gadgets tab, tick "Yet Another AFC Helper Script", then click "Save". To find drafts to review, visit Special:NewPagesFeed, and at the top left, tick "Articles for Creation". To review a draft, visit a submitted draft, click on the "More" menu, then click "Review (AFCH)". You can also comment on and submit drafts that are unsubmitted using the script.

You can review the AFC workflow at WP:AFCR. It is up to you if you also want to mark your AFC accepts as NPP reviewed (this is allowed but optional, depends if you would like a second set of eyes on your accept). Don't forget that draftspace is optional, so moves of drafts to mainspace (even if they are not ready) should not be reverted, except possibly if there is conflict of interest.

Pro tip: Did you know that visual artists such as painters have their own SNG? The most common part of this "creative professionals" criteria that applies to artists is WP:ARTIST 4b (solo exhibition, not group exhibition, at a major museum) or 4d (being represented within the permanent collections of two museums).

Guideline and policy news

  • Following an RfC, TFAs will be automatically semi-protected the day before it is on the main page and through the day after.
  • A discussion at WP:VPP about revision deletion and oversight for dead names found that [s]ysops can choose to use revdel if, in their view, it's the right tool for this situation, and they need not default to oversight. But oversight could well be right where there's a particularly high risk to the person. Use your judgment.

Technical news

Arbitration

  • The SmallCat dispute case has closed. As part of the final decision, editors participating in XfD have been reminded to be careful about forming local consensus which may or may not reflect the broader community consensus. Regular closers of XfD forums were also encouraged to note when broader community discussion, or changes to policies and guidelines, would be helpful.

New pages patrol newsletter[edit]

Hello Carrite,

New Page Review article queue, March to September 2023

Backlog update: At the time of this message, there are 11,300 articles and 15,600 redirects awaiting review. This is the highest backlog in a long time. Please help out by doing additional reviews!

October backlog elimination drive: A one-month backlog drive for October will start in one week! Barnstars will be awarded based on the number of articles and redirects patrolled. Articles will earn 4x as many points compared to redirects. You can sign up here.

PageTriage code upgrades: Upgrades to the PageTriage code, initiated by the NPP open letter in 2022 and actioned by the WMF Moderator Tools Team in 2023, are ongoing. More information can be found here. As part of this work, the Special:NewPagesFeed now has a new version in beta! The update leaves the NewPagesFeed appearance and function mostly identical to the old one, but updates the underlying code, making it easier to maintain and helping make sure the extension is not decommissioned due to maintenance issues in the future. You can try out the new Special:NewPagesFeed here - it will replace the current version soon.

Notability tip: Professors can meet WP:PROF #1 by having their academic papers be widely cited by their peers. When reviewing professor articles, it is a good idea to find their Google Scholar or Scopus profile and take a look at their h-index and number of citations. As a very rough rule of thumb, for most fields, articles on people with a h-index of twenty or more, a first-authored paper with more than a thousand citations, or multiple papers each with more than a hundred citations are likely to be kept at AfD.

Reviewing tip: If you would like like a second opinion on your reviews or simply want another new page reviewer by your side when patrolling, we recommend pair reviewing! This is where two reviewers use Discord voice chat and screen sharing to communicate with each other while reviewing the same article simultaneously. This is a great way to learn and transfer knowledge.

Nice work! Were you planning on nominating for WP:DYK? « Gonzo fan2007 (talk) @ 21:12, 6 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No, I wasn't. Feel free if you'd like to. Or better yet, maybe we can come up with a photo to illustrate the piece... Carrite (talk) 22:39, 6 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Welcome, welcome, welcome Carrite! I'm glad that you are joining the drive! Please, have a cup of WikiTea, and go cite some articles.

Regarding an inappropriate comment of mine[edit]

Hi Carrite, regarding my sentence to you "it's really disrespectful, rude and horrible towards me to say this." (here: Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#1JackKBrown again), I intend to apologise (albeit belatedly) to you for the ugliness of that sentence, I hope you can forgive me. A good night. The Jack (talk) 01:47, 6 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No worries, my friend. There was some concern off-wiki that you were engaging in trolling here. I don't think that's the case. I think you might be advised to concentrate on making Italian Wikipedia as good as it can be for a while to let things settle down a little bit here. It is never a good thing to land at AN/I with any frequency, there have been many good content people who have run afoul of drama-mongers there. Happy editing! —tim //// Carrite (talk) 01:52, 6 February 2024 (UTC) /// Ping JackkBrownReply[reply]
I'm very sorry that all of you (or almost all of you) thought this, I never trolled (see: JackkBrown). The Jack (talk) 16:49, 6 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

William Smoot[edit]

Hi Carrite! I saw you removed the deletion tag off of William Smoot because there were references in the page, but I tagged for deletion due to notability. I'm kind of new to the deletion process; if I tagged this page for deletion in an improper fashion, could you let me know what I did wrong and how I could go about it correctly? Thanks in advance. ThaesOfereode (talk) 13:23, 8 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi. Articles for Deletion is the place for potentially controversial or potentially questionable deletion nominations. People pay close attention there and if the sources are out there, people are apt to find them. See: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. Only utterly uncontroversial potential deletions should be run through PROD, which is an expedited process. Best regards, —tim /// Carrite (talk) 13:34, 8 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Are you trolling me? Do you know what a { {construction} } template signifies? Carrite (talk) 04:54, 11 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Blocked IP troll is blocked. Troll geolocates to Japan. I doubt it. Carrite (talk) 05:52, 11 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sounds like you're protesting too much imo. You vandalized that article about Glenn but won't admit it, and now you're projecting onto the innocent IP above who called you out on it. Shame on you! 153.246.161.89 (talk) 08:45, 11 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

RfA[edit]

I don't know what you were planning on your oppose vote, but it is petty, pointless, and unconstructive. 🌺 Cremastra (talk) 23:18, 15 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
