New Pages Patrol newsletter April 2024[edit]

Hello Dreamy Jazz,

New Page Review queue January to March 2024

Backlog update: The October drive reduced the article backlog from 11,626 to 7,609 and the redirect backlog from 16,985 to 6,431! Congratulations to Schminnte, who led with over 2,300 points.

Following that, New Page Patrol organized another backlog drive for articles in January 2024. The January drive started with 13,650 articles and reduced the backlog to 7,430 articles. Congratulations to JTtheOG, who achieved first place with 1,340 points in this drive.

Looking at the graph, it seems like backlog drives are one of the only things keeping the backlog under control. Another backlog drive is being planned for May. Feel free to participate in the May backlog drive planning discussion.

It's worth noting that both queues are gradually increasing again and are nearing 14,034 articles and 22,540 redirects. We encourage you to keep contributing, even if it's just a single patrol per day. Your support is greatly appreciated!

2023 Awards

Onel5969 won the 2023 cup with 17,761 article reviews last year - that's an average of nearly 50/day. There was one Platinum Award (10,000+ reviews), 2 Gold Awards (5000+ reviews), 6 Silver (2000+), 8 Bronze (1000+), 30 Iron (360+) and 70 more for the 100+ barnstar. Hey man im josh led on redirect reviews by clearing 36,175 of them. For the full details, see the Awards page and the Hall of Fame. Congratulations everyone for their efforts in reviewing!

WMF work on PageTriage: The WMF Moderator Tools team and volunteer software developers deployed the rewritten NewPagesFeed in October, and then gave the NewPagesFeed a slight visual facelift in November. This concludes most major work to Special:NewPagesFeed, and most major work by the WMF Moderator Tools team, who wrapped up their major work on PageTriage in October. The WMF Moderator Tools team and volunteer software developers will continue small work on PageTriage as time permits.

Recruitment: A couple of the coordinators have been inviting editors to become reviewers, via mass-messages to their talk pages. If you know someone who you'd think would make a good reviewer, then a personal invitation to them would be great. Additionally, if there are Wikiprojects that you are active on, then you can add a post there asking participants to join NPP. Please be careful not to double invite folks that have already been invited.

Reviewing tip: Reviewers who prefer to patrol new pages within their most familiar subjects can use the regularly updated NPP Browser tool.

Reminders:

Venezuelan Politics case[edit]

Hi! At Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Venezuelan politics there is a typo in the involved parties section – it should be "WMrapids" with a lowercase r (it currently shows "WMRapids" so it appears the user does not exist). Not sure if I can fix it or if it should be left to the clerks :) –FlyingAce✈hello 23:24, 6 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi. Thanks for raising this. I've fixed this. Happy editing, Dreamy Jazz talk to me | my contributions 23:26, 6 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

IP block exemption[edit]

Hi! I have came here in a good faith for a little help that I need. I have been blocked for past 2-3 through my IP address of my router, and I am unable to edit English Wikipedia.

I did try the UTRS, but the admins there declined my request without a proper reason, even though I had multiple appeals. I don't know how would I fix it but I ensure that not even by mistake I will edit Wikipedia with my VPN on.
