New Page Patrol newsletter October 2022[edit]

Hello Dr Salvus,

New page reviewer of the year cup.svg

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.

Awards: Barnstars were given for the past several years (thanks to MPGuy2824), and we are now all caught up. The 2021 cup went to John B123 for leading with 26,525 article reviews during 2021. To encourage moderate activity, a new "Iron" level barnstar is awarded annually for reviewing 360 articles ("one-a-day"), and 100 reviews earns the "Standard" NPP barnstar. About 90 reviewers received barnstars for each of the years 2018 to 2021 (including the new awards that were given retroactively). All awards issued for every year are listed on the Awards page. Check out the new Hall of Fame also.

Software news: Novem Linguae and MPGuy2824 have connected with WMF developers who can review and approve patches, so they have been able to fix some bugs, and make other improvements to the Page Curation software. You can see everything that has been fixed recently here. The reviewer report has also been improved.

NPP backlog May – October 15, 2022

Suggestions:

  • 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.

Backlog:

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!

I decided to gift you with this Barnstar as a way to thank you for reviewing the page about Valentín Carboni and making it the first good article I've ever contributed to. I genuinely appreciate it, so "Grazie mille" once again! Oltrepier (talk) 21:43, 4 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Oltrepier, exaggeratedd, but thanks anyway. Dr Salvus 22:34, 4 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Oltrepier, try reviewing Samuel Iling-Junior and Juventus Next Gen. Dr Salvus 18:29, 5 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't know how much time I'll have in the next few weeks, but I might be able to take a look at least at the first article! Oltrepier (talk) 18:53, 5 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, did you see my recent comment here? I think it might help unlock the discussion about your own article. Oltrepier (talk) 18:56, 5 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Actually, I don't care on the article. Dr Salvus 19:33, 5 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your GA nomination of Samuel Iling-Junior[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Samuel Iling-Junior you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by ChristieBot, on behalf of Oltrepier -- Oltrepier (talk) 16:21, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Oltrepier, I may need time to do this. Can you try expanding Dean Huijsen so we can nominate it for DYK? Please, update the pages on Juventus U23 pages before next match, to avoid getting a mess for the next update.
Actually, I can't stay much time with my PC. Dr Salvus 16:42, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No problem with it, I'll put the review on hold if you need it!
To be honest, I already added all the information I had on Huijsen last time, so I don't really see that opportunity coming soon...
And yes, I'll try my best with those player pages. Oltrepier (talk) 16:51, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Oltrepier, maybe you can add something on his style of play but I need you to do this. I've renounced time of sleep to see Iling's comments, I'm very busy!
We'll nominate it for DYK together. Dr Salvus 00:17, 12 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And I was about to forget: thanks for your U23 update! Dr Salvus 00:17, 12 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'll see what I can do, but anyway, your sleep (and health) is way more important than these edits, so no pressure... : D
And you're welcome! Oltrepier (talk) 13:24, 12 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your GA nomination of Samuel Iling-Junior[edit]

The article Samuel Iling-Junior you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:Samuel Iling-Junior and Talk:Samuel Iling-Junior/GA1 for issues which need to be addressed.

Your GA nomination of Samuel Iling-Junior[edit]

The article Samuel Iling-Junior you nominated as a good article has passed Symbol support vote.svg; see Talk:Samuel Iling-Junior for comments about the article, and Talk:Samuel Iling-Junior/GA1 for the nomination. Well done! If the article has not already appeared on the main page as a "Did you know" item, or as a bold link under "In the News" or in the "On This Day" prose section, you can nominate it within the next seven days to appear in DYK. Bolded names with dates listed at the bottom of the "On This Day" column do not affect DYK eligibility.

Congratulations! I think the article is now eligible as a WikiCup submission, too. Oltrepier (talk) 12:44, 13 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Oltrepier, if you can give me a suggestion fot the DYK hook, I'll make another joint nomination. Dr Salvus 00:44, 14 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Dr Salvus Maybe you could write about the Benfica game or the one against Lecce? That's the only idea I've got...
And don't worry: you worked on the article originally, so you can take full credit for it. : ) Oltrepier (talk) 08:35, 14 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Oltrepier, looks like I can't do that... Dr Salvus 22:02, 16 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just a quick reminder[edit]

Hello! Did you submit that article for the WikiCup, in the end?

Oltrepier (talk) 14:35, 15 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Oltrepier, almost forgot.  Done Dr Salvus 16:01, 15 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello! I've just found out about your decision to nominate the article for a DYK spot. I know we already talked about this, but I still don't think the page is ready to get it. I'll definitely see what we can do, though.

Plus, be careful about what you claim when you propose co-nominations: this is actually my second one...

Oltrepier (talk) 10:13, 16 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ok, about the hook's length issue, I think we can just simplify it even more, at this point. Maybe, something like this would be a good compromise:
"... that Dean Huijsen went from featuring for Juventus' under-17 squad to playing for their professional reserve team in just half a year?"
What do you think about it? Oltrepier (talk) 11:03, 17 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Seems like we made it, in the end. Yay! : D Oltrepier (talk) 13:29, 20 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Oltrepier, need your Juventus U23 update, please. Dr Salvus 22:05, 20 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Oltrepier, if you wish, you can update every U23 player until June. Dr Salvus 18:24, 29 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, I'll see what I can do.
By the way, our DYK nominations seem to proceed well! Oltrepier (talk) 18:27, 29 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
