NPR Newsletter No.18[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Bradv,

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

Niharika Kohli, a product manager for the growth team, announced that work is underway in implementing improvements to New Page Patrol as part of the 2019 Community Wishlist and suggests all who are interested watch the project page on meta. Two requested improvements have already been completed. These are:

  • Allow filtering by no citations in page curation
  • Not having CSD and PRODs automatically marked as reviewed, reflecting current consensus among reviewers and current Twinkle functionality.
Reliable Sources for NPP

Rosguill has been compiling a list of reliable sources across countries and industries that can be used by new page patrollers to help judge whether an article topic is notable or not. At this point further discussion is needed about if and how this list should be used. Please consider joining the discussion about how this potentially valuable resource should be developed and used.

Backlog drive coming soon

Look for information on the an upcoming backlog drive in our next newsletter. If you'd like to help plan this drive, join in the discussion on the New Page Patrol talk page.

Michael Avenatti[edit]

Hi, Brad! Let somebody else revert it next time; you've done it three times now. Looks like there is no shortage of people willing to revert. -- MelanieN (talk) 00:27, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

MelanieN, absolutely. – bradv🍁 00:29, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Could you fix this?[edit]

It was reverted by the bot. And then please link me the diff so I can see for future reference what the issue was? I'm still struggling with tags. Thanks! :) Safrolic (talk) 08:51, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Safrolic, this looks like an issue with the bot. I've raised it at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts/Bugs#Mishandling multiple RfCs on one talk page. – bradv🍁 16:45, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
