Relisting long CFD[edit]

About relisting Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2023_July_28#Category:Association_football_people_by_prefecture_in_Japan with another collapsed section: if you want to do it that way, it's best to put it at the bottom of a CFD log page (like it currently is), otherwise the collapsing may make it hard to view other sections on some browsers.

Another way to do it is to list a few sample lines and put the full list on the talk page.

Feel free to cut our conversation about relisting from the CFD and paste it here instead. – Fayenatic London 15:19, 27 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Fayenatic london, yes, I think the latter would be best. — Qwerfjkltalk 15:23, 27 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Qwerfjkl (bot) – PearlyGigs[edit]

Page: Alex_Greenwood

Diff: Special:Diff/1172832138

Comment/question: I'm not sure why this problem was reported as it arose from the same error (a missing title parameter) as in the previous report and, also, the citation was not a bare url. Possible reporting bug? I've fixed the problem by adding the source title. Thanks.

PearlyGigs (talk) 19:22, 29 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@PearlyGigs, the edit introduced two errors, a bare URL error and a missing title error. These errors frequently occur in the same edit, so normally they would be handled together and the bot would have notified you of one error. For some reason there seems to have been a delay, as it have a notification almost immediately after about the same edit. This is probably due to some kind of lag somewhere, but it seems a rare occurrence so I don't think there's much I can do about it. — Qwerfjkltalk 20:43, 29 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi, Qwerfjkl. That's fine. It seemed an oddity and I thought you should know about it. Thanks for looking into it. PearlyGigs (talk) 23:04, 29 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Administrators' newsletter – September 2023[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (August 2023).

Guideline and policy news

  • Following an RfC, TFAs will be automatically semi-protected the day before it is on the main page and through the day after.
  • A discussion at WP:VPP about revision deletion and oversight for dead names found that [s]ysops can choose to use revdel if, in their view, it's the right tool for this situation, and they need not default to oversight. But oversight could well be right where there's a particularly high risk to the person. Use your judgment.

Technical news


  • The SmallCat dispute case has closed. As part of the final decision, editors participating in XfD have been reminded to be careful about forming local consensus which may or may not reflect the broader community consensus. Regular closers of XfD forums were also encouraged to note when broader community discussion, or changes to policies and guidelines, would be helpful.


  • Tech tip: The "Browse history interactively" banner shown at the top of Special:Diff can be used to easily look through a history, assemble composite diffs, or find out what archive something wound up in.

I dont understand[edit]

why your bot is still operating - there are so many errors! is there something an editor needs to know why you are still running it? JarrahTree 10:44, 4 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@JarrahTree, which task are you referring to, and what erros? Diffs would help. — Qwerfjkltalk 11:34, 4 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

JarrahTree 11:57, 4 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@JarrahTree, correct. Those edits happened over 2 months ago, however. The task is now finished. I also turned off the ORES wikiproject detection because it was too unreliable. — Qwerfjkltalk 14:00, 4 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

For the note - almost all of is full of totally wrong project tags JarrahTree 10:37, 5 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@JarrahTree, yes, I was editing 200,000 pages, I expected there to be some false positives. As I founf the rate was too high, I stopped tagging wikiprojects. Would you like me to go through and undo the bot's edits on pages in that category? — Qwerfjkltalk 15:25, 5 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
nah dont bother - the discovery process is a useful practice - no big deal, thanks for explaining what happened, understanding what went wrong is as interesting as fixing the problems... JarrahTree 00:49, 6 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Pranesh Ravikumar, you can read the source and manually give it a title. For example, in this case, |title=Israeli police kill Palestinian child, 14, in Jerusalem would do nicely. — Qwerfjkltalk 17:13, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question from Greenvillette (07:59, 8 September 2023)[edit]

I am new in Wikipedia, My edits were reverted, I have done minor edits like one line or two lines , those information was not wrong , But I don't know why they were reverted, my only intention was to contribute by writing. Because Wikipedia has been helping not only me rather all ,from a long time by its vast informations.Thanks for reading. --Greenvillette (talk) 07:59, 8 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Greenvillette, your edits were of poor quality, for example this one on Itihas (2002 film) had mutilple spelling and punctuation errors and contained irrelevant information. Here Materialscientist said in their edit summary that they reverted you for not citing sources, and reverted you again when you redid the edit. You can always ask the person who reverted you to explain why, but they will be unwilling to help you if you edit disruptively like this, and continue re-editing once reverted. — Qwerfjkltalk 15:03, 8 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Comment/question: Hello. Regarding the edits that I made, I just manually reverted my edits to the first one that I hadn't previously edited. So I think I am not the one who has made errors there. Thank you!

Phoenixupdate (talk) 03:42, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello again! I just edited the reference that has an error. Phoenixupdate (talk) 03:48, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Phoenixupdate, the bot should have ignored that edit as it was tagged with manual revert. I'll fix that soon. — Qwerfjkltalk 06:55, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New page reviewer granted[edit]

Hi Qwerfjkl. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group. Please check back at the permissions page in case your user right is time-limited or probationary. This user group allows you to review new pages through the Curation system and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or nominate them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is vital to maintaining the integrity of the encyclopedia. If you have not already done so, you must read the tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the deletion policy. If you need any help or want to discuss the process, you are welcome to use the new page reviewer talk page or ask via the NPP Discord. In addition, please remember:

  • Be nice to new editors. They are usually not aware that they are doing anything wrong. Do make use of the message feature when tagging pages for maintenance so that they are aware.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted. Please be formal and polite in your approach to them – even if they are not.
  • If you are not sure what to do with a page, don't review it – just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Accuracy is more important than speed. Take your time to patrol each page, including checking for copyright violations using Earwig's copyright violation detector, checking for duplicate articles, and evaluating sources (both in the article, and if needed, via a Google search) for compliance with the general notability guideline.
  • Please review some of our flowcharts (1, 2) to help ensure you don't forget any steps.
  • Use the message feature to communicate with article creators and offer advice as much as possible.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you also may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In cases of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, or long-term inactivity, the right may be withdrawn at administrator discretion. If you can read any languages other than English, please add yourself to the list of new page reviewers with language proficiencies. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 13:17, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

getting diffs[edit]

Hello. I am non-seriously working on WP:BOTREQ#Creating archive page for added ITN items. I successfully got editor name, time, and edit summary, but I have been failing to get diffs of any page/edit. I tried to find the information regarding edit diffs in manual, and in this man page, but I am still failing. Do you know some other manpage, or how to get a diff? —usernamekiran (talk) 10:24, 10 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Usernamekiran, I assume you're using pywikibot. Do you want something like page.revisions()? — Qwerfjkltalk 10:30, 10 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
thanks. Yes, I'm using pywikibot. I had tried using page.revisions() but couldn't get it correctly. My code so far for getting the info is as following. I have also created another chunk for creating archive pages, it is working correctly. The only thing I'm stuck with is the diff text. —usernamekiran (talk) 10:51, 10 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
import pywikibot

site = pywikibot.Site("en", "wikipedia")
source_page_title = "Template:In the news"

source_page = pywikibot.Page(site, source_page_title)

# Most recent edit to the source page
latest_revision = source_page.latest_revision

# Extract information from the latest revision
editor_name = latest_revision.user
edit_time = latest_revision.timestamp
edit_summary = latest_revision.comment

# Create the archive entry with username, timestamp, and edit s
archive_entry = f"Editor: {editor_name}, Timestamp: {edit_time}, Summary: {edit_summary}"

# Print

I think it just clicked me. But I'm on mobile. I will let you know how it goes in a couple of hours. —usernamekiran (talk) 10:56, 10 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Usernamekiran, so do you want something like, diff, difftype='table')? — Qwerfjkltalk 11:24, 10 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I tried multiple methods, I am getting bizarre outputs. I am also getting texts from irrelevant articles. I tested the script on the template:in the news, as well as on my userpage - same issues. I have been unable to get/load the diffs. can you get the diffs? —usernamekiran (talk) 13:18, 10 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
When I tried to investigate the issue further, I got following error: pywikibot.exceptions.InconsistentTitleError: Query on [[en:User:Usernamekiran]] returned data on 'Yuri Petukhov (footballer)' CRITICAL: Exiting due to uncaught exception InconsistentTitleError: Query on [[en:User:Usernamekiran]] returned data on 'Yuri Petukhov (footballer)'
In the html output (of previous script), there was mention of "Yuri Aleksandrovich Petukhov" which is a redirect to "Yuri Petukhov (footballer)". These two articles are not mentioned, and were never mentioned in any previous version of my userpage. However KiranBOT had updated the category of "Yuri Aleksandrovich Petukhov", after that, the "Yuri Aleksandrovich Petukhov" page was moved to "Yuri Petukhov (footballer)" by some other editor. I still have no idea why texts of these articles were popping up in the output. —usernamekiran (talk) 13:30, 10 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Usernamekiran, I just used
print(, latest_revision.revid))

Hello and welcome to the September 2023 newsletter, a quarterly digest of Guild activities since June. Don't forget you can unsubscribe at any time; see below.

David Thomsen: Prolific Wikipedian and Guild member David Thomsen (Dthomsen8) died in November 2022. He was a regular copy editor who took part in many of our Drives and Blitzes. An obituary was published in the mid-July issue of The Signpost. Tributes can be left on David's talk page.

Election news: In our mid-year Election of Coordinators, Dhtwiki was chosen as lead coordinator, Miniapolis and Zippybonzo continue as assistant coordinators, and Baffle gab1978 stepped down from the role. If you're interested in helping out at the GOCE, please consider nominating yourself for our next election in December; it's your WikiProject and it doesn't organize itself!

June Blitz: Of the 17 editors who signed up for our June Copy Editing Blitz, 12 copy-edited at least one article. 70,035 words comprising 26 articles were copy-edited. Barnstars awarded are here.

July Drive: 34 of the 51 editors who took part in our July Backlog Elimination Drive copy-edited at least one article. They edited 276 articles and 683,633 words between them. Barnstars awarded are here.

August Blitz: In our August Copy Editing Blitz, 13 of the 16 editors who signed up worked on at least one article. Between them, they copy-edited 79,608 words comprising 57 articles. Barnstars awarded are available here.

September Drive: Sign up here for our month-long September Backlog Elimination Drive, which is now underway. Barnstars awarded will be posted here.

Progress report: As of 14:29, 9 September 2023 (UTC), GOCE copy editors have processed 245 requests since 1 January. The backlog of tagged articles stands at 2,066.

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators, Dhtwiki, Miniapolis and Zippybonzo.

To discontinue receiving GOCE newsletters, please remove your name from our mailing list.

Global ratings[edit]

Hi Qwerfjkl, are you up for some more bot work sometime? It seems to me that we could roll out the WP:PIQA assessments soon. For articles which are not in Category:Articles with conflicting quality ratings and have equal or blank class parameters defined in individual banners, we can do edits like this. Bear in mind that a few projects have chosen to opt-out of the global ratings so it will be necessary to track these templates and their redirects, and not to remove the class parameter from those. Thanks — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 13:21, 21 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New pages patrol newsletter[edit]

Hello Qwerfjkl,

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.

Question from Greenvillette (06:45, 23 September 2023)[edit]

What is the meaning of source that that should be linked after edit?? If not it's reverted! Why? --Greenvillette (talk) 06:46, 23 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Greenvillette, I'm unaware of what you're referring to, but see WP:Citation needed. — Qwerfjkltalk 06:53, 23 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
