Draft:Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh[edit]

Hi, thank you for moving Draft:Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh into draftspace. Have been working on it (cleaning up copy, creating a structure, attempting an NPOV and adding references) as I work my way down the page. Would appreciate a review from you when you have time. Meanwhile the original page creator submitted the draft for Afc consideration - I believe the remaining sections (Projects/SAAP Projects downwards) will be done in a day or two, and we should wait until then to submit. Reverted the template to not submitted but wanted your help to remove it from the consideration queue if it still somehow is in there. Sdsouza (talk) 08:48, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Sdsouza Greetings. May I know who are "we" you referred to on your message above? CASSIOPEIA(talk) 08:54, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
CASSIOPEIA The "we" meant editors here. Half the article is now cleaned up and citations done (i think), the other half still looks incomplete (to me). Thanks! Sdsouza (talk) 09:34, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Sdsouza how many of "we" are there? Are you guys working for Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh? CASSIOPEIA(talk) 09:36, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
CASSIOPEIA am not sure about the original page creator (don't know them), but I don't work for SAAP. The "we" meant editors in general here at Wikipedia - not a group of editors that I am part of. Just to be clear, here's the diff from when I started editing to its current state: diff. Sdsouza (talk) 09:39, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Sdsouza If you look at the history log here, there is only 4 editors in total, the creator, you, I and the other is also a reviewer. So pls use "I" if you refer just yourself.. Pls note that in Wikipedia, we use gender neutral pronounce when we dont know the gender of the editor, instead of he/she, him/her, his/hers we use they/them/their. I asked the question because Wikipedia account is for only one user. Pls note that the draft at the present stage written more like a company broucher or profile in web site. Pls refer to other sport article such as FIFA. Reduce the roles/function down to one sentence and remove mission. Remove all the project and state only the most important ones. Pls read up WP:Your First Article and WP:GOLDENRULE to familiar yourself on how to write an article and the requirement in Wikipedia. Take you time to rewrite as the draft article will be in Wikipedia system for 6 months prior deletion if no submission is made. Cheers. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 09:51, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
CASSIOPEIA Glad you agree with what I said at the beginning of this section: the draft is not ready for submission. As for your advice on using gender neutral pronouns, am wondering what in my posts here prompted you to bring it up. I used a single pronoun as far as I can make out - them (apart from I and you, I mean). Thanks again! Sdsouza (talk) 10:17, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Sdsouza I mentioned as I dont want you to get confused if I use "they/them/ther" to refer to an editor (singular). CASSIOPEIA(talk) 10:21, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Why did you remove my edit to Polystation[edit]

Hey dude, I actually know Reggie personally and I can assure you all the information I added is completely true, and I have physical evidence to prove it— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:57, May 16, 2019 (UTC) Greetings. I have left a message to you on your talk page and indicated the reason - you didnt provide a independent, reliable sources. Since you know Reggie personally, it is not advised to edit the affected page as you have a conflict of interest. You could provide source and request for other editor to edit for you by stating it on the article talk page. Thank you. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 13:04, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Colour boxes[edit]

Just wondering why you removed the colour boxes ? Leighton94 (talk) 13:49, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Leighton94 Greetings. Pls see Section:Parameters and Example. Cheers. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 14:01, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Vandalism in pending changes protected page[edit]

Hi greetings, I have a doubt. When reviewing pending changes pages, can we use rollback instead of revert changes in PC reviewing on reverting blatant vandalism? Kindly please answer. Thank you.--PATH SLOPU 16:17, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Path slopu Greetings. Rollback would be used if the edits are considered blatantly vandalism on the most recent edit (say editor A) on pending changes pages. If another editor (editor B) made and edit, then you cannot use rollback to revert edits made by editor A. Do note we cannot choose which revision to be restored for the revert mad by rollback function will always be the last revision not made by the author of the most recent revision. Cheers.

NPR Newsletter No.18[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg


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.

Ref errors[edit]

Hello, with this edit, a ref was missing the closing '>'. Please take care with these... I have come across some others left by you in recent weeks. Using preview or even looking at the page after saving would have revealed the large angry ref-error message. Thank you. Eagleash (talk) 11:19, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Eagleash Greetings. Left over the ">" thanks for informing and helping. Appreciate it. Cheers. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 11:43, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Vandalism Academy[edit]

Hello, I saw your name as a trainer at Wikipedia:Counter-Vandalism Unit/Academy I'm interested in learning how to fight vandalism and more in-depth learning of Vandalism on WIkipedia, I also checked your contributions, It's nice to see you're nice to other users. Please Train me --Siddharth Talk To Me!! 18:12, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

SidPedian Good day and thank you for interested in fighting vandalism in Wikipedia. Pls have a look the "Goals" and "Syllabus" sections below to understand the requirements needed at the end of the course in order to graduate from CVSCHOOL. Secondly, please note that there are many editors who were interested in counter vandalism course and abundant the program mid way due to lack of anticipation of the amount of efforts/time needed in reading the program material, doing assigned "homework" and exams requirements . The program has no timeline set, as the editor would progress through the course work at their own time. Generally, it would take an editor 1.5-2 months to finish the course. So do prepare yourself for lots of reading and homework if you intend to proceed with the program. As of today, you have edited 106 mainspace - see HERE and the requirement for a user to enroll into the program is that (1) the user has contributed at least 200 edits to MAINSPACE and (2) a good contributor (no vandalism edits , disruptive edits or have not been blocked in last 6 months). Your time spent in Wikipedia for the last few weeks shows that you could be achieve 200 mainspace in next 2 weeks. Come back if you are still interested after you have contributed to at least 200 mainspace edits, and also include the reason why you are interested in the program and become a vandal fighter in Wikipedia.


If you're new and/or inexperienced, before embarking on a Counter-Vandalism training programme, you should be able to demonstrate that you have already mastered the basic principles of editing the encyclopedia and contributed at least 200 edits to MAINSPACE. If you have previously been warned or requested to follow guidelines, you should have demonstrated that you have addressed these issues.

When you have shown through training that you have mastered the principles of Counter-Vandalism and can apply them with accuracy, and can communicate correctly and effectively with new users of all kinds you may be able to apply for permission to use restricted tools, such as, for example Rollback, and STiki that will enable you to semi-automate the process, while understanding that speed alone is not essential - the target is accuracy. When you have achieved these goals, you can display the {{User CVU0-en}} userbox on your user page.

  • Is inconsistent in use of warning on user talk pages or uses incorrect warning templates
  • Has reverted fewer than 50 instances of vandalism in the two weeks prior to graduation – or – has reverted more than 50 instances of vandalism with a high degree of incorrect reversions.

  • Consistently leaves the correct messages on vandal’s talk page explaining the reversion, and is able to further explain the vandal their reasoning behind the reversion if prompted.
  • Has accurately reverted at least 50 instances of vandalism in the two weeks prior to graduation.
At the meantime, if you have not finished WP:The Wikipedia Adventure program, I do suggest you to do so as there are many valuable info and exercises which would help you to understand some fundamental info and requirements as a good contributor in Wikipedia. If you have any other questions or anything I could help, please let me know. Cheers. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 10:08, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

CVU Training[edit]

I want to joint your CVU Academy. So said The Great Wiki Lord. (talk) 17:00, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

TheGreatWikiLord Good day. I have noticed you enrolled in the CVU program 3.5 years ago but stopped after the second assignment. Kindly explain what happened. Secondly please let me know why you want to rejoin the program and why you want to be a vandal fighter? Lastly, pls read the message titled "Vandalism Academy" above to understand what requirement, goals and syllabus. Thank you. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 18:35, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
Got too busy in real life and had to take a break. I want to fight vandalism and better understand the accepted methods better from someone who is experiences. So said The Great Wiki Lord. (talk) 18:39, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
TheGreatWikiLord, Please note that there are many editors who were interested in counter vandalism course and abundant the program mid way due to lack of anticipation of the amount of efforts/time needed in reading the program material, doing assigned "homework" and exams requirements . The program has no timeline set, as the editor would progress through the course work at their own time. Generally, it would take an editor 1.5-2 months to finish the course. So do prepare yourself for lots of reading and homework if you intend to proceed with the program. "The motto of the Counter Vandalism Unit is Civility - Maturity - Responsibility" and keeping a cool head and be civil is important as we the vandal fighters often receive unpleasant messages from vandalized editor who received our warnings. Lastly, do refrain to use the word personal attack and trolling until you are familiar with the subject which will be covered in the program. If you are up to it then let me know and I will set up a sub page of the program for you. Let me know. Cheers. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 19:10, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
CASSIOPEIA Noted. and yes I want to proceed. So said The Great Wiki Lord. (talk) 20:07, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
