Administrators' newsletter – April 2021[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (March 2021).

Administrator changes

removed AlexandriaHappyme22RexxS

Guideline and policy news

  • Following a request for comment, F7 (invalid fair-use claim) subcriterion a has been deprecated; it covered immediate deletion of non-free media with invalid fair-use tags.
  • Following a request for comment, page movers were granted the delete-redirect userright, which allows moving a page over a single-revision redirect, regardless of that redirect's target.

Technical news

  • When you move a page that many editors have on their watchlist the history can be split and it might also not be possible to move it again for a while. This is because of a job queue problem. (T278350)
  • Code to support some very old web browsers is being removed. This could cause issues in those browsers. (T277803)

Hi Miniapolis, could you please give me a steer as to how you see the above article being improved as per the tag? Cheers. Bermicourt (talk) 19:31, 3 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, Bermicourt. The page is in good shape, and the prose could just use a bit of polishing if you're interested in an eventual GAN; WP:Basic copyediting is a useful guide. Please don't interpret the tag as a badge of shame; the Guild of Copy Editors has an arrangement with the Typo Team in which Beland uses a tool to find what it interprets as typos, and Tatteln was flagged. I interpret copyediting broadly, and try to generally improve the articles on which I work; it would be a pleasure to work on an article like this . I just see a couple of minor issues: quotations have double quotation marks on WP (", not '), and they're not italicized. Stay well and all the best, Miniapolis 19:56, 3 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Bermicourt: Pardon my jumping in! I double-checked the report for this article, and it looks like the to-copyedit article finder was triggered by a small punctuation typo and the fact that it didn't recognize the word "tattel". I fixed the typo and made a redirect to indicate that's a legitimate word which is defined in this article. Miniapolis is right about the other minor formatting issues - one of the reasons we have humans look at articles. 8) -- Beland (talk) 21:30, 3 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks, Beland; I pinged you in the hope that you'd weigh in . Stay well and all the best, Miniapolis 22:51, 3 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you for your gracious responses. I've un-italicised the first quotation and used {{Quote}} for the second. Do let me know if I've done that correctly and whether any more c/e is needed. Bermicourt (talk) 07:48, 4 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't think so, Bermicourt, since Beland fixed the typo; feel free to remove the {{copy edit}} tag, and I'm glad you're watching the page. Stay well and all the best, Miniapolis 13:49, 4 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Christian ethics[edit]

Christian ethics is currently undergoing a GA review, and I would like to request that you please revert your recent changes. The reviewer will make any prose changes necessary during the review process. Some of your changes are problematic, and the text is supposed to be stable before going under review. If the reviewer makes suggestions based on the original version only to find another version they have to review over again, it could cost the article approval for a GA that it well deserves. I did not revert the changes myself, but I am asking you to do so. I know your changes were made in good faith, but please go and put things back as they were. At least until the review is done!

I'm aware that the page is at GAN and, since the prose and tone need work to reach the GA standards, I'm not surprised that you requested a copyedit (customary before nominating a GA). Feel free to revert my changes, and I'll move on to another request. Miniapolis 13:04, 6 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have now done so as the changes you made introduced some errors, removed correct philosophical terminology, and added other incorrect and inappropriate changes. I think you must not be familiar with philosophy. I requested this review before the peer review which was before the GA review which has been waiting for some months now. The coincidence of the timing is not really my fault, but as it has worked out this way, moving on is probably best at this point. Thank you for your interest in this article.

I'm a Christian (former Catholic), familiar with philosophy, and – more to the point – an experienced copyeditor; you did request a copyedit, and other editors were skipping over your request (perhaps because of the length of the article). My interest is in improving the encyclopedia; you may be too close to the article's subject to see its issues. Miniapolis 14:52, 7 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
