Copy edit on Robert Hannah[edit]

Hi! I saw that you added a {{Copy edit}} tag to my article Robert Hannah. I rewrote it a bit, could you take another look and give me some pointers if you still see any issues? --AlexandraAVX (talk) 09:03, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey @AlexandraAVX. You're welcome to remove the tag yourself in the future, but I've done so in this case. You definitely helped make the language more clear, thank you for making the effort. Hey man im josh (talk) 12:01, 11 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello mate, sorry to disturb but would you take a minute of your time to review the above mentioned draft. I once approved as I still believe it passes WP:N but I was somewhat convinced here that I somehow made a "mistake" by performing WP:Round-robin swap which led to me getting my rights removed 'cause I believed I was not doing a good job. Thank you. shelovesneo (talk) 09:18, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Shelovesneo: I think mistakes happen and you may have been a little quick to request the removal of your rights. The problem with the round-robin swap is that, in doing so, you lose the history of the page. The result of the AfD from January of this year is, essentially, that Johnny Suh is not independently notable outside of their activities associated with the group. I think Robertsky did a decent job in their explanation and I think you just happen to have missed a couple of things. I hope it doesn't discourage you because we all experience growing pains on the site. What matters is that we learn from them and try not to make those mistakes again.

Thank you @DreamRimmer! I hope that we'll be working together at NPP for a long time :) Hey man im josh (talk) 12:02, 11 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello, there! I hope you can review this new page and its redirects. Thank you very much. Maxen Embry (talk) 05:49, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello @Maxen Embry. Thank you for your contributions, but I'm sorry, I don't review pages upon request. I did notice that it looks like the article has already been marked as reviewed by another patroller. Someone from the team will review the redirects at their earliest convenience.

Trafalgar Releasing improvements[edit]

Hi, thank you for reviewing the page. I want to make sure I understand the suggestion for improvements.

Am I right in thinking that the suggested improvements are to add more sources?

Thank you again Griseo veritas (talk) 13:24, 18 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey @Griseo veritas. When pages are sent to AfD, it's standard procedure for members of the new page patrol team to mark the pages as reviewed. Based on the nominator's rationale at the deletion discussion page, it seems as though they're interpreted the current sources as mostly routine press coverage based on press releases. If you want to improve the article then I'd encourage you to find sources that are more in depth and are not based on press releases from the company. Hey man im josh (talk) 13:28, 18 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's cool, I appreciate the quick and succinct reply. I'll get to work on the page in good time. Thanks :) Griseo veritas (talk) 13:30, 18 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Congratulations, Hey man im josh! The list you nominated, List of National Football League annual rushing touchdowns leaders, has been promoted to featured status, recognizing it as one of the best lists on Wikipedia. The nomination discussion has been archived.
This is a rare accomplishment and you should be proud. If you would like, you may nominate it to appear on the Main page as Today's featured list. Keep up the great work! Cheers, PresN (talk) via FACBot (talk) 00:26, 19 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Best of luck![edit]

Hello again! Just wanted to stop by to wish you the best of luck. You deserve this, and will obviously be a huge asset to this project with the mop. My (semi) new job has rendered me unable to participate much anymore which sucks, but it's good to know you'll be around. Your demeanor, patience, and flat-out helpful personality on here is invaluable, and helped me tremendously when I was first getting started. I just wanted to make sure I was able to say good luck, and I hope it works out! I hope to continue seeing you around! :) SPF121188 (talk this way) (my edits) 19:06, 19 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you @The Corvette ZR1, but this is rather premature. I'm a believer in not counting my chickens before they hatch. Hey man im josh (talk) 20:18, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Just a friendly suggestion.

Others' opinions may perhaps vary on this, but on the question of similar to your username, you might want to research and comment at the posting at UAA rather than do the block yourself.

It's not "quite" INVOLVED, but probably better to let someone else push the button on it.

Hope this helps : ) - jc37 20:11, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for the feedback @Jc37, I very much appreciate it. One thing I want to avoid, if successful at RfA, is any hint of INVOLVED editing or actions. I'm going to update my answer accordingly. Hey man im josh (talk) 20:16, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Somewhat related: the part of your answer right after that is cut off at "in which case I’d". Good luck. Firefangledfeathers (talk / contribs) 01:01, 21 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's embarrassing, thank you for pointing this out to me @Firefangledfeathers. I've finished the cut off answer. Hey man im josh (talk) 12:28, 21 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
For what it's worth to you, here are some of my thoughts about this.
  • Jc37 says "Others' opinions may perhaps vary on this", and indeed they do. I would see nothing wrong at all with blocking in that case.
  • Another case where opinions vary, is on the "softblock" over user names. Many administrators use such blocks for usernames, but I absolutely don't. In my opinion if the only problem with an account is that the user has a username which might be subject to a "softblock", then there is no justification at all for blocking, as that is a totally unnecessary way of biting a newcomer. Such a username is pretty well certain to be chosen in perfectly good faith by an editor who simply didn't know about our username policy, and a friendly message explaining the situation is, in my opinion, a far better way of dealing with it than an unexpected block. Obviously the situation may be different if as well as the username there are other problems; obviously it would be different if the username were deliberately offensive, but that is not what we are talking about; also the situation becomes different if the editor defies policy by continuing to use an unacceptable username after being informed of the policy. However, my view is that blocking a good faith only because they have a username which is contrary to a policy which they had no reason to know about is never justifiable. As I said above, others' opinions vary, and you may well be one of the many who disagree with my view, but you may like to at least consider it. JBW (talk) 21:49, 21 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Thank you for message @JBW, any and all guidance is very much appreciated! However, my view is that blocking a good faith only because they have a username which is contrary to a policy which they had no reason to know about is never justifiable – Perhaps I could have done a better job in answering the question, but this is ultimately how I feel as well and the approach I want to take. I do not want to push away potentially constructive editors over something that can be addressed and fixed. Hey man im josh (talk) 17:35, 22 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Your userpage states: "This user believes that a hot dog is a sandwich.". What is the smallest change you could make that would turn a sandwich into something you would no longer consider to be a sandwich? Where is the edge of sandwichness?

JBW - AfD: Adminship for Discussion? : ) - jc37 21:35, 21 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
jc37: Yes, that's better in my opinion than "requests for adminship", but even so, it will probably be better if I stick to the more usually recognised acronyms, so thanks for pointing it out. JBW (talk) 21:53, 21 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No worries : ) - You would probably not believe some of the acronyms I've mis-typed in a discussion. lol - jc37 21:58, 21 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New pages patrol newsletter[edit]

Hello Hey man im josh,

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.

Blocking admins[edit]

I saw you answered a question about this on your RFA. You might find Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Archive302#Michael Hardy (and other places on that page) instructive. :) SarekOfVulcan (talk) 17:35, 22 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    I believe they are asking me to patrol some pages that they've created, as I have patrolled some of their creations before.
