Blanking draft?[edit]

Hey, Godsy! Why do we need to blank this? valereee (talk) 20:51, 3 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Valereee: I was going to move it to User:Kaf121/Madbhi, but noticed your statement that you deleted it. So, I simply blanked it. As long as the templates {{draft topics}} and {{afc topics}} are removed, so that the page does not populate Category:Draft topics used in wrong namespace and Category:AfC topic used in wrong namespace respectively, I have no major qualm with the draft remaining unblanked at its present location (though the main talk page of a user is not a good place for a userspace draft). — Godsy (TALKCONT) 01:38, 4 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry, I'm probably being stupid...why shouldn't the user talk work to post that? I have no objection to it being moved to that redlink. I deleted an earlier version due to copyvio, then brought this one in so this very new user would be able to access their previous work without the copyvio. Why would we have any objection at all to that? What am I missing? valereee (talk) 19:34, 4 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Valereee: No worries. Well, let's imagine that the draft remains on their talk page. The user receives communications, maybe even important, from a couple more users. They then decide to submit the draft to afc. The draft will likely be moved to draftspace. That is problematic because now the history of their talk page (something that should be preserved) is mixed with the draft. On the other hand, the draft may be quickly declined where it is at. Either way, the page will now bear an afc template (e.g. {{AfC submission/draft}}) thereby making it eventually eligible for G13. Unless the deleting administrator is particularly savvy and simply blanks the draft (leaving the other contents and history intact), the same issue of losing what should rightly remain occurs. Similar problems would arise if the page is ever brought to miscellany for deletion. Thus – placing the draft content on a main user talk page, as opposed to a subpage of userspace, presents many potential issues for the future. I hope that helps clarify a bit. Warmest regards, — Godsy (TALKCONT) 01:16, 5 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Not really, but I'll assume you know better than I do. How shall we best make the content and sources available to this user, then? valereee (talk) 14:18, 5 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

November Articles for creation backlog drive[edit]

Hello Godsy:

WikiProject Articles for creation is holding a month long Backlog Drive!
The goal of this drive is to reduce the backlog of unreviewed drafts to less than 2 months outstanding reviews from the current 4+ months. Bonus points will be given for reviewing drafts that have been waiting more than 30 days. The drive is running from 1 November 2023 through 30 November 2023.

You may find Category:AfC pending submissions by age or other categories and sorting helpful.

Barnstars will be given out as awards at the end of the drive.

There is a backlog of over 2400 pages, so start reviewing drafts. We're looking forward to your help! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:24, 31 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Further explanation regarding the archive RfD[edit]

After the comment where you said you'd be open to reevaluating based on additional explanation, I made a somewhat longer post outlinine some of the precise ways in which the presence of random redirects can be disruptive for coding: Wikipedia:Redirects_for_discussion/Log/2024_February_20#Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Signpost/Archives/Years. I'd appreciate if you would read what I've written here and reconsider -- as it stands, I am somewhat concerned that the outcome of the discussion could prevent maintenance work in the future. jp×g🗯️ 21:37, 22 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

New Pages Patrol newsletter April 2024[edit]

Hello Godsy,

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:
