Where to submit Featured List reviews[edit]

Hi there! I just realized that there's a place for FARs, but not FLC reviews -- which I think are supposed to count this year? Am I just supposed to post these in the FAC section? (Sorry for the confusion on my end!) Nomader (talk) 16:53, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nomader, I've just put them in the FAC section. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 17:37, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Perfect, thanks! Nomader (talk) 17:39, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

ITN updaters[edit]

Hey! I was wondering if updaters at ITN, not just nominators, can be awarded for points. It only states "nominators" at WP:Wikicup/Scoring#In the news, and so I'm asking for clarification, if ITN updaters can also be awarded points if they've also made substantial contributions on the ITN article. I was also directed here via Discord. Thanks! Tails Wx 21:38, 17 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Greetings, yes, you should be able to do so as an updater! Happy editing! Ktin (talk) 03:58, 18 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Alright! Thanks! Tails Wx 04:05, 18 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have clarified the requirements for "In the news" submissions. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 10:28, 26 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

FAC/FLC review standards[edit]

Is there an established minimum standard for what sort of FAC/FLC reviews can be submitted? I ask because a lot of reviews focus specifically on one aspect, like citations or images, or they might otherwise leave several comments without doing a top-to-bottom review. I figure this has probably been addressed before, but it's not specified in the main WikiCup page or Wikipedia:WikiCup/Scoring, and I can't find it in the talk archives.

Personally, I think like anything else, as long as a thorough and high-quality, it can be claimed. I have claimed points for sources reviews on Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Albert Levitt/archive1 and Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Burnley F.C. in international football/archive1, for example.

@Thebiguglyalien: As a source review specialist, I would say that they are much more tricky than is often believed. I would write an FA first or do a series of prose reviews before jumping into them -- Guerillero Parlez Moi 19:14, 26 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I very much second what Guerillero says. A detailed source review is intense, even when few points end up being raised. Harrias (he/him) • talk 19:41, 26 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The judges check every submission made, and all the FAC/FLC reviews I have inspected have been of a high standard suitable for WikiCup points. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 20:31, 27 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Where are the results from Round One?[edit]

I see that the ongoing Round 2 is on Wikipedia:WikiCup but where can the Round One results be found? Thanks, Shearonink (talk) 20:53, 4 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks Harrias. For those who might be following the results from time to time, perhaps a link to individual past Rounds could/should be provided on the main contest page? Shearonink (talk) 21:13, 4 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Signups open for The Core Contest[edit]

The Core Contest will take place this year from April 15 to May 31. The goal: to improve vital or other core articles, with a focus on those in the worst state of disrepair. Editing can be done individually, but in the past groups have also successfully competed. Most of our core articles carry a lot of bonus points for the WikiCup, so I'm hoping this finds interested ears here. There is £300 of prize money divided among editors who provide the "best additive encyclopedic value". Signups are open now.
