George Daniels[edit]

I have been editing the George Daniels watchmaker page. There is another page (go to "List of most expensive watches sold at auction" and see my comments on the talk page) which has updated watch results but has ignored the sale of a George Daniels watch in 2022. I left a message on the talk page mid January asking whoever has recently updated the whole page to add this watch but they have not replied. I didn't really want to make the edits (as I am not sure how to do so in a table and also because I don't want to check the accuracy of the other information to insert the one sale where I think it belongs and it has knock on effects for the rankings of the auction houses and the watch makers). What's the best way to get this page up-dated? The omission of the watch affects the integrity and accuracy of the whole page andmy comments have been ignored.

Hello again, Alfie5890! Unfortunately, I'm not sure I can help you very much in this situation. As I mentioned the last time we talked, I'm not familiar with this topic area, and don't edit articles like it at all, so my potential advice can only be very general. I wouldn't be so quick to assume that your talk page messages were "ignored", though. Wikipedia is run by volunteers, and it's unfortunately the case that articles will often go years without editor attention simply because no one has found the desire to improve them. That's why being bold is important here: doing it yourself is sometimes the only way to get things done. If you're having difficulty understanding how to edit tables (which I can relate to), Help:Table is a great resource to learn that skill. If you have any other questions, I'm happy to help; you can also talk to experienced editors at the Teahouse or the Wikimedia Discord server.

Edited Citibank Philippines information[edit]

Hi I'm Tina Cabanayan, a representative from the PR agency of Citi in the PH. I edited/deleted old information on Citi Philippines based on updated information on their website

I also updated the name of key people. Hope you can update the page based on my changes. Thank you (talk) 08:45, 11 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey Tina, there's a couple of issues to address here. Firstly, if you're an employee of Citibank and are editing Wikipedia for pay, you are required to disclose that according to the Wikimedia terms of use. See Wikipedia:Paid-editing disclosure for more information. You'll probably have to create an account to comply with this policy. Secondly, the content of your edit was inappropriate for multiple reasons. You removed large amounts of legitimate content from the article without explanation, and the text you did add was highly promotional in violation of the neutral point of view policy. I highly recommend that you read the plain and simple conflict of interest guide for some appropriate steps you can take to improve the Citibank Philippines article. Let me know if you have any questions. TechnoSquirrel69 (sigh) 08:54, 11 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WikiCup 2024 February newsletter[edit]

The 2024 WikiCup is off to a flying start, with 135 participants. This is the largest number of participants we have seen since 2017.

Our current leader is newcomer Generalissima (submissions), who has one FA on John Littlejohn (preacher) and 10 GAs and 12 DYKs mostly on New Zealand coinage and Inuit figures. Here are some more noteworthy scorers:

As a reminder, competitors may submit work for the first round until 23:59 (UTC) on 27 February, and the second round starts 1 March. Remember that only the top 64 scoring competitors will make it through to the second round; currently, competitors need at least 15 points to progress. If you are concerned that your nomination will not receive the necessary reviews, and you hope to get it promoted before the end of the round, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. However, please remember to continue to offer reviews at GAN, FAC and all the other pages that require them to prevent any backlogs which could otherwise be caused by the Cup. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup and the judges (Cwmhiraeth (talk · contribs), Epicgenius (talk · contribs), and Frostly (talk · contribs)) are reachable on their talk pages. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove your name from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Editor of the Week nomination[edit]

Thanks for taking an active role in fixing the recent attempt to add a nomination. Your concern for the nominating newebie editor was above the norm. It was an example of reaching out that goes a long way in retaining new editors. Buster Seven Talk (UTC) 20:19, 11 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for the thanks, Buster7! Obviously, I agree wholeheartedly, and I can personally attest to that impact — I almost certainly wouldn't be editing today if not for the kindnesses shown to me by other editors when I was starting out. All I'm doing is paying it forward! TechnoSquirrel69 (sigh) 20:38, 11 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It looks like you’ve left an Under Review notice on the page for more than 12 hours, you may want to remove that. Miralitt (talk) 03:58, 12 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey Miralitt! I appreciate the reminder, but I've left it marked on purpose. The draft creator is currently suspected of block evasion, so I want to keep that page on hold until the investigation is closed. TechnoSquirrel69 (sigh) 04:05, 12 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh, that makes sense! Sorry about that. Miralitt (talk) 04:42, 12 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No worries! TechnoSquirrel69 (sigh) 04:49, 12 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Draft:Vladimir Levin (historian)[edit]

I appreciate that you have been editing this page. I agree that the bibliography was too long, however, I do not think that the whole sections of "Articles" has to be deleted. I brought it back, but in a significantly shortened version. Also, the word 'disciple' is important in the article, because the described person indeed perceives himself as a disciple of Jonathan Frenkel. Thus, I am bringing the word 'disciple' back. CatherineOlesh (talk) 20:15, 13 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@CatherineOlesh: Thanks for your clarifications! Regarding the use of the term disciple, I think that should be attributed to the person who said it in the form of a quote. To me, the term carries a religious and possibly loaded connotation, so I'd appreciate it if it wasn't being used in Wikipedia's voice. Otherwise, nice work on the draft so far — let me know if you have any questions! TechnoSquirrel69 (sigh) 20:39, 13 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you! I will try to rephrase it in a better way. CatherineOlesh (talk) 20:40, 13 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

AfC submission left on "being reviewed" for almost a week[edit]

Isn't the template supposed to stay for less that 12 hours? (Draft:Cultural impact of Depp v. Heard) Good day. Youprayteas (t c) 11:18, 17 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for your message, Youprayteas! However, I've left the tags on the draft intentionally as the creator is currently suspected of block evasion. See also: § Under Review Notice on Draft:Cultural impact of Depp v. Heard. TechnoSquirrel69 (sigh) 14:58, 17 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh sorry, I didn't notice that someone had already told you this. That's too bad, because I thought the draft was pretty good looking except for the use of emojis. Cheers! Youprayteas (t c) 15:06, 17 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WikiCup 2024 March newsletter[edit]

The first round of the 2024 WikiCup ended at 23:59 (UTC) on 27 February. Everyone with at least 30 points moved on to Round 2, the highest number of points required to advance to the second round since 2014. Due to a six-way tie for the 64th-place spot, 67 contestants have qualified for Round 2.

The following scorers in Round 1 all scored more than 300 points:

In this newsletter, the judges would like to pay a special tribute to Vami_IV (submissions), who unfortunately passed away this February. At the time of his death, he was the second-highest-scoring competitor. Outside the WikiCup, he had eight other featured articles, five A-class articles, eight other good articles, and two Four Awards. Vami also wrote an essay on completionism, a philosophy in which he deeply believed. If you can, please join us in honoring his memory by improving one of the articles on his to-do list.

Remember that any content promoted after 27 February but before the start of Round 2 can be claimed in Round 2. 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, feel free to review one of the nominations listed on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed. Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages. Good luck!
