Below are the guidelines to follow when posting on this talk page
Hello Nnadigoodluck, Good evening from this end. Please check out 2019 Nigerian House of Representatives elections in Delta State to see if it's ok, although it has been reviewed. And please I didn't add percentage but left the space for someone else who wants to help calculate 🤦 --Idoghor Melody (talk) 18:02, 2 October 2021 (UTC)

Hub Research in West Africa
This message is intended to inform you about a research project that is being embarked on by the West African Hubs Research Team. We will want to know and understand the perceptions of the community members in the West African sub-region on the concept of regional and thematic hubs. Please fill out the questionnaire below to help us know your thoughts on the concept.
Please feel free to get back to me if you have any concerns.
The fourth round of the WikiCup has now finished. 383 points were required to reach the final, and the new round has got off to a flying start with all finalists already scoring. In round 4, Bloom6132 with 939 points was the highest points-scorer, with a combination of DYKs and In the news items, followed by BennyOnTheLoose, Sammi Brie and Lee Vilenski. The points of all contestants are swept away as we start afresh for the final round.
At this stage, we say goodbye to the eight competitors who didn't quite make it; thank you for the useful contributions you have made to the Cup and Wikipedia, and we hope you will join us again next year. For the remaining competitors, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 4 but before the start of round 5 can be claimed in round 5. Remember too that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them, and importantly, before the deadline on October 31st!
If you are concerned that your nomination, whether it be for a good article, a featured process, or anything else, will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send. The judges are Sturmvogel 66 and Cwmhiraeth.

October 2022 New Pages Patrol backlog drive
|New Page Patrol | October 2022 backlog drive|
|You're receiving this message because you are a new page patroller. To opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself here.|
Much has happened since the last newsletter over two months ago. The open letter finished with 444 signatures. The letter was sent to several dozen people at the WMF, and we have heard that it is being discussed but there has been no official reply. A related article appears in the current issue of The Signpost. If you haven't seen it, you should, including the readers' comment section.
- There is much enthusiasm over the low backlog, but remember that the "quality and depth of patrolling are more important than speed".
- Reminder: an article should not be tagged for any kind of deletion for a minimum of 15 minutes after creation and it is often appropriate to wait an hour or more. (from the NPP tutorial)
- Reviewers should focus their effort where it can do the most good, reviewing articles. Other clean-up tasks that don't require advanced permissions can be left to other editors that routinely improve articles in these ways (creating Talk Pages, specifying projects and ratings, adding categories, etc.) Let's rely on others when it makes the most sense. On the other hand, if you enjoy doing these tasks while reviewing and it keeps you engaged with NPP (or are guiding a newcomer), then by all means continue.
- This user script puts a link to the feed in your top toolbar.
Saving the best for last: From a July low of 8,500, the backlog climbed back to 11,000 in August and then reversed in September dropping to below 6,000 and continued falling with the October backlog drive to under 1,000, a level not seen in over four years. Keep in mind that there are 2,000 new articles every week, so the number of reviews is far higher than the backlog reduction. To keep the backlog under a thousand, we have to keep reviewing at about half the recent rate!
- Newsletter feedback - please take this short poll about the newsletter.
- If you're interested in instant messaging and chat rooms, please join us on the New Page Patrol Discord, where you can ask for help and live chat with other patrollers.
- Please add the project discussion page to your watchlist.
- If you are no longer very active on Wikipedia or you no longer wish to be a reviewer, please ask any admin to remove you from the group. If you want the tools back again, just ask at PERM.
- To opt out of future mailings, please remove yourself here.
The 2022 WikiCup has drawn to a close with the final round going down to the wire. The 2022 champion is
- Lee Vilenski (1752 points), who won in 2020 and was runner up in both 2019 and last year. In the final round he achieved 3 FAs and 15 GAs, mostly on cue sports. He was closely followed by
- Bloom6132 (1732), who specialised in "In the news" items and DYKs, and who has reached the final round of the Cup for the past three years. Next was
- BennyOnTheLoose (1238), another cue sports enthusiast, also interested in songs, followed by
- Muboshgu (1082), an "In the news" contributor, a seasoned contestant who first took part in the Cup ten years ago. Other finalists were
- Sammi Brie (930), who scored with a featured article, good articles and DYKs on TV and radio stations,
- Kavyansh.Singh (370), who created various articles on famous Americans, including an FA on Louis H. Bean, famed for his prediction of election outcomes. Next was
- PCN02WPS (292), who scored with good articles and DYKs on sporting and other topics and
- Z1720 (25) who had DYKs on various topics including historic Canadians.
During the WikiCup, contestants achieved 37 featured articles, 349 good articles, 360 featured article reviews, 683 good article reviews and 480 In the news items, so Wikipedia has benefited greatly from the activities of WikiCup competitors. Well done everyone! All those who reached the final round will receive awards and the following special awards will be made, based on high performance in particular areas of content creation and review. So that the finalists do not have an undue advantage, these prizes are awarded to the competitor who scored the highest in any particular field in a single round, or the overall leader in this field.
- Lee Vilenski wins the featured article prize, for a total of 6 FAs during the course of the competition and 3 in the final round.
- Kavyansh.Singh wins the featured list prize, for 3 FLs in round 2.
- Adam Cuerden wins the featured picture prize, for 39 FPs during the competition.
- Z1720 wins the featured article reviewer prize, for 35 FARs in round 4.
- Epicgenius wins the good article prize, for 32 GAs in round 1.
- SounderBruce wins the featured topic prize, for 4 FT articles in round 1.
- Lee Vilenski wins the good topic prize, for 34 GT articles in round 5.
- Sammi Brie wins the good article reviewer prize, for 71 GARs overall.
- Sammi Brie wins the Did you know prize, for 30 DYKs in round 3 and 106 overall.
- Bloom6132 wins the In the news prize, for 106 ITNs in round 5 and 289 overall.
Next year's competition will begin on 1 January and possible changes to the rules and scoring are being discussed on the discussion page. You are invited to sign up to take part in the contest; the WikiCup is open to all Wikipedians, both novices and experienced editors, and we hope to have a good turnout for the 2023 competition. Until then, it only remains to once again congratulate our worthy winners and finalists, and thank all participants for their involvement!

ArbCom 2022 Elections voter message
Nomination of pages created
Hello, i see you nominated some Nigerian pages i created. I'm 100% disappointed in you.
Nigeria has very few editors and very few articles. As a matter of fact, Nigerian IP addresses are almost always banned from editing Wikipedia. That means Nigeria has very little representation on this platform and our world isn't covered appropriately. But here you are deleting the few we can get.
Some of us are trying to fight for Nigerian inclusivity. Some of us are trying not to have articles about Nigeria and Nigerians not looked down on as irrelevant. And then here you are, doing what I don't understand, and for what?
- Hello, Amaekuma,
- While it can be painful to have articles you created tagged for deletion or deletion discussions, articles about all kinds of subject are reviewed to make sure they meet Wikipedia standards for verifiability and notability. If your articles are tagged for an AFD discussion, please participate in the discussion and address any concerns that are brought up. If there is a specific article that you think was mistagged, please bring up that article with the editor or admin who tagged it for deletion. It's helpful if you include a link to the article you are concerned about. Thank you. Liz Read! Talk! 22:41, 20 December 2022 (UTC)
- Amaekuma, listen to what Liz said. Best, —Nnadigoodluck███ 23:01, 20 December 2022 (UTC)
- Do you think Chinko Ekun and 2shotz pages you created are notable to me? 9 out of 10 references in the 2shotz article is him complaining about how irrelevant he is. But you created the page because notability is subjective. And yet you're getting my well cited Nigerian and Igbo pages deleted. Well-done. Jisike Amaekuma (talk) 07:44, 21 December 2022 (UTC)
First, thank you for all of the work you do on Wikipedia. It is appreciated! However, please do not tag expiring drafts early. Check out the page history and tagging should be done six months since the last human edit to the page, taking into account any difference between UTC and your local time. For instance, we had Daylight Savings Time where I live back on June 20th so I have to adjust the time to account for the fact that the UTC time difference in June was 8 hours and now it is only 7 hours. It's a little different but if you are handling G13s a lot, you get used to it. Perhaps you don't have your clocks changing twice a year and so in that case, the time of the last edit, six month later, would be the time it's appropriate to tag the page for speedy deletion.
Believe it or not, until September 2020, we used to have all of the days' expiring drafts reported at once so there were hundreds of pages to suddenly tag and delete. SDZeroBot gave us daily lists that allow us to handle the drafts throughout the day and night and so it's a much more manageable task. Thanks again for your help. Liz Read! Talk! 22:36, 20 December 2022 (UTC)
- Liz, Thanks for telling me and I'm glad you stopped by. Best, —Nnadigoodluck███ 22:58, 20 December 2022 (UTC)
Hello, again, Nnadigoodluck,
I'm back! And I have a request. Please do not tag multiple articles from the same page creator for deletion at the same time unless the content is problematic (copyright violations, BLP violations, advertising, etc.). When you come across an editor whose quality of work you question, don't go to their Contributions and just tag a lot of their content creations for deletion, especially speedy deletion or AFD. If they are an inexperienced but good faith editor, facing this surge of deletion of pages they have worked on is overwhelming and demoralizing. There is no way they can work on improving that many pages all at the same time. Yes, we want sub-par content to be removed from the project but we also want to develop good editors who do quality work and that's a process that can take time and patience.
I know as a patroller, it's easiest to take care of tagging a lot of pages at the same time, you don't have to remember to go back and do them one-at-a-time. But I'm asking you to put yourself in the shoes of an editor who works on creating articles. Maybe you can actually take a few steps and help improve an article and it doesn't need to be deleted. If the articles are just truly bad and need to go, try to tag them over time so that an editor doesn't feel targeted or harrassed. As I said, if the content is problematic, then deletion is a priority. But if it is just an issue of bad writing or not enough quality reliable sources, then there is no rush to tag articles like this and they can be handled over a few days instead of all at once. I do value the work you do on Wikipedia but I also have sympathy for the editor whose articles are all tagged for deletion at the same time and I can understand their frustration.
- Okay, Liz, I'll do as you say. Of course, I am having a great holiday season and I also wish you a very splendiferous one. Best, —Nnadigoodluck███ 09:59, 27 December 2022 (UTC)
regarding the help for submission of article
Dear Sir, Good Evening. I am trying to write an article of a living personality but it is getting deleted always. can you please help me in this matter?
Waiting for your positive response.
Welcome to the 2023 WikiCup!
Happy New Year and Happy New WikiCup! The 2023 competition has just begun and all article creators, expanders, improvers and reviewers are welcome to take part. Even if you are a novice editor you should be able to advance to at least the second round, improving your editing skills as you go. If you have already signed up, your submissions page can be found here. If you have not yet signed up, you can add your name here and the judges will set up your submissions page ready for you to take part. Any questions on the scoring, rules or anything else should be directed to one of the judges, or posted to the WikiCup talk page. Signups will close at the end of January, and the first round will end on 26 February; the 64 highest scorers at that time will move on to round 2. The judges for the WikiCup this year are: Sturmvogel 66 (talk · contribs · email) and Cwmhiraeth (talk · contribs · email). Good luck! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 14:16, 1 January 2023 (UTC)
So ends the first round of the 2023 WikiCup. Everyone with a positive score moved on to Round 2, with 54 contestants qualifying. The top scorers in Round 1 were:
- Unlimitedlead with 1205 points, a WikiCup newcomer, led the field with two featured articles on historical figures and several featured article candidate reviews.
- Epicgenius was in second place with 789 points; a seasoned WikiCup competitor he specialises in buildings and locations in New York.
- FrB.TG was in third place with 625 points, garnered from a featured article on a filmmaker which qualified for an impressive number of bonus points.

- Iazyges was in fifth place with 532 points, from two featured articles on classical history.

It was a high-scoring start to the competition.
These contestants, like all the others, now have to start again from scratch. The first round finished on February 26. Remember that any content promoted after that date but before the start of Round 2 can be claimed in Round 2. Some contestants made claims before the new submissions pages were set up, and they will need to resubmit them. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed.
If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

The fourth round of the competition has finished, with anyone scoring less than 673 points being eliminated. It was a high scoring round with all but one of the contestants who progressed to the final having achieved an FA during the round. The highest scorers were

- Sammi Brie, with 1575 points, gained mainly from a featured article, 28 good articles and 50 good article reviews. Close behind was
- Thebiguglyalien, with 1535 points mainly gained from a featured article, 15 good articles, 26 good article reviews and lots of bonus points.
Between them during round 4, contestants achieved 12 featured articles, 3 featured lists, 3 featured pictures, 126 good articles, 46 DYK entries, 14 ITN entries, 67 featured article candidate reviews and 147 good article reviews. Congratulations to our eight finalists and all who participated! It was a generally high-scoring and productive round and I think we can expect a highly competitive finish to the competition.

Remember too that you must claim your points within 10 days of "earning" them and within 24 hours of the end of the final.
