Signups open for The Core Contest[edit]

The Core Contest—Wikipedia's most exciting contest—will take place this year from April 15 to May 31. The goal: to improve vital or other core articles, with a focus on those in the worst state of disrepair. Editing can be done individually, but in the past groups have also successfully competed. There is £300 of prize money divided among editors who provide the "best additive encyclopedic value". Signups are open now. Cheers from the judges, Femke, Casliber, Aza24.

If you wish to start or stop receiving news about The Core Contest, please add or remove yourself from the delivery list.

Your deal in the news[edit]

I very very much agree (and have spoken about this with @Astinson (WMF) on multiple occasions). And it's not only in 'climatetech' that we stop being neutral because we're outdated, it's also true for the physics of climate change. The physical science 10-15 years ago was much more uncertain, and climate denial can almost be defined as exaggerating uncertainty. And some aspects of climate change weren't visible, leaving us with sentences like "heat wave are expected to increase in frequency". Have just starting editing the deplorable Energy policy of the European Union, curious what I'll find there. —Femke 🐦 (talk) 20:45, 1 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Didn't have to look for long: the article states "Many underlying proposals are designed to limit global temperature changes to no more than 2 °C above pre-industrial levels, of which 0.8 °C has already taken place and another 0.5–0.7 °C is already committed.".. We're at 1.2C now. —Femke 🐦 (talk) 20:49, 1 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

AWB Request[edit]

Greetings @Femke, I saw you have recently approved another users AWB rights request and I am wondering if you could take a look at mine. I am eager to start using the tool.

Thanks, - 🔥𝑰𝒍𝒍𝒖𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝑭𝒍𝒂𝒎𝒆 (𝒕𝒂𝒍𝒌)🔥 19:15, 10 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bit too tired to look at it today, but will have another look tomorrow. I see you're lower on non-automated edits than typically required however. —Femke 🐦 (talk) 18:00, 11 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I completely understand being tired. I am really busy at work right now, and am very stressed. About my non-automated edits, the granting guidelines say “Users with under 250 non-automated mainspace edits or 500 total mainspace edits will likely not be accepted.” I have almost 1,000 total Mainspace edits, so that should work, right? - 🔥𝑰𝒍𝒍𝒖𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝑭𝒍𝒂𝒎𝒆 (𝒕𝒂𝒍𝒌)🔥 20:26, 11 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your GA nomination of Effects of climate change[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Effects of climate change you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria.

My AWB rights[edit]

Hello @Femke. A few days/weeks ago you granted me AWB rights. I have since tried to use them but have found they do not work with my browser/device. I see no reason to keep them as they will not be used, so please remove me from the list.

Thanks, - 🔥𝑰𝒍𝒍𝒖𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝑭𝒍𝒂𝒎𝒆 (𝒕𝒂𝒍𝒌)🔥 20:52, 20 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Illusion Flame: Sorry for the late reply. You indicated that you wanted to try JWB. Have you tried AWB instead? It works as a Desktop application, so that may help you circumvent the device/browser limits you had. —Femke 🐦 (talk) 07:49, 23 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
AWB doesn’t work either. I am a mobile user, so AWB doesn’t work at all and JWB works, but is unusable because of my screen size. Thanks for trying to help anyway. - 🔥𝑰𝒍𝒍𝒖𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝑭𝒍𝒂𝒎𝒆 (𝒕𝒂𝒍𝒌)🔥 11:35, 23 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Did you see my reply? - 🔥𝑰𝒍𝒍𝒖𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝑭𝒍𝒂𝒎𝒆 (𝒕𝒂𝒍𝒌)🔥 02:42, 27 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I did, but prioritised by limited energy elsewhere. Have removed you now. —Femke 🐦 (talk) 16:31, 27 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request on 13:17:34, 1 May 2023 for assistance on AfC submission by Violaine LI[edit]

Hello Femke,

Thank you for giving advice on the three best resources. Please find them as follows: 1.For the first dialogue of the China-Europe-America Net-Zero Transition Platform 2.For the first dialogue of the China-Europe-America Philanthropy Cooperation Initiative 3.For the first dialogue of the China-Europe-America Museums Cooperation Initiative second dialogue

There were more sources made to the second submission but some of them are in Chinese.

Please advice further on how more improvements can be made to this article.

Violaine LI (talk) 13:17, 1 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank @Violaine LI. I've copied the sources over to the talk page of the draft.
The first news article you shared does not contain enough information about the initiative to qualify (only 1 sentence). Furthermore, it's not sufficiently independent of the initiative, as it is largely based on quotes from involved people. I feel the other two may be based off of press releases, but I'm unfamiliar with those sources. If no three articles exist that are independent of the topic (so articles not based on interviews with involved people / press releases), there is not much more you can do than wait for more sources to be published. No matter of improvements to the article can make a topic WP:notable if not enough has been published about it. —Femke 🐦 (talk) 18:03, 1 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you Femke for your prompt response.
Regarding the perspective of "sufficiently independent of the initiative",
there is another article which contains no quotes of involved people and thus more independent.
Please check :
It was published on the site of one of China's top University's. As for the other two sources, I estimate that they qualify the criteria that you mentioned.
All these sources were referred to on the article yet the submissions were declined. Violaine LI (talk) 14:05, 2 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello @Violaine LI. As Tsinghua was a partner in that dialogue, this is unfortunately not independent either. Writing new articles is very hard, and I typically do not recommend it to new editors. On another note, could I ask what your relation is to David Gosset? If you have a conflict of interest, you must declare it. —Femke 🐦 (talk) 16:02, 2 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello Femke, thank you for pointing out the COI. I didn't know about this. : {{Connected contributor|User1=Violaine LI |U1-declared=yes}}</nowiki> Violaine LI (talk) 12:44, 3 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, on the page of David Gosset, there's a Maintenance template on the top of the page, regarding to citation. I've made improvements to the references according to the article "Wikipedia:Template index/Sources of articles". Please estimate if it's the time to remove the maintenance template. Violaine LI (talk) 12:54, 3 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for letting me know. Are you paid for the contributions? If so, please also follow Wikipedia:Paid-contribution disclosure. The article doesn't have bare links anymore, so feel free to delete the tag. Even better would be to provide more information for the links with only a title, such as an author and English translation. —Femke 🐦 (talk) 16:53, 3 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your GA nomination of Effects of climate change[edit]

The article Effects of climate change you nominated as a good article has passed Symbol support vote.svg; see Talk:Effects of climate change for comments about the article, and Talk:Effects of climate change/GA1 for the nomination. Well done! If the article has not already appeared on the main page as a "Did you know" item, or as a bold link under "In the News" or in the "On This Day" prose section, you can nominate it within the next seven days to appear in DYK. Bolded names with dates listed at the bottom of the "On This Day" column do not affect DYK eligibility.
