Disambiguation link notification for May 11[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Chutia people, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Indo-Chinese (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

Short description[edit]

Hi Galobtter. Per this discussion I've just had, would it be possible to flag the edits adding the short description with your script as minor? Thanks. Lugnuts Fire Walk with Me 10:53, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

And also @Pbsouthwood: - apologies, only just seen the reply on Cassiopeia's talkpage. Thanks. Lugnuts Fire Walk with Me 12:47, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
@Lugnuts: I don't think all additions should be flagged as minor, but I added an option to mark edits with the script as minor. @CASSIOPEIA: the descriptions on wikidata that you are importing were added by a bot based on categories. I think it may make more sense to have a bot add descriptions based on categories here than importing it semi-automatically (though semi-automated does allow some level of human checking that a bot wouldn't have).

Hi Galobtter, Description from wikidata is about 90% correct which I have imported to articles. For those are incorrect, I manually edit them. To say here, do you mean, you will set up a bot to add the wikidata short description info to the articles in Boxing cat and all its subcats as well? I am not sure what I should do at the moment, pls advise. Thanks in advance. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 14:21, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
@CASSIOPEIA: If the wikidata descriptions are 10% incorrect, then importing descriptions semi-automatically as you are doing is reasonable; I was just wondering if it is possible to save time and do things faster by generating descriptions automatically here as was done on Wikidata.

Galbotter, When I meant incorrect, it also include description is only partial info "such as American boxer" where wikidata short descr is only "boxer" or short description is too long. Those take is actually wrong, would be less than 5%. Would we able to find out which articles on a said category which have no short descriptions in wikdata? CASSIOPEIA(talk) 15:05, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
My experience with Wikidata descriptions is that the quality can vary a lot depending on the topic, which is unsurprising, as they were often added by the same person across a topic. They can very often be improved, but are quite often good enough, so the gadget works very well for me. I occasionally use import, often use edit and import and the rest of the time usually compose one from what can be gleaned from the lead. Occasionally I omit as not adding anything useful to the title, and occasionally the article is so poorly written that I can't work out what it is supposed to be about and just give up as a waste of time.

Thanks for looking into this - much appreciated. Lugnuts Fire Walk with Me 14:55, 13 May 2019 (UTC)


Hi Galobtter. Thank you for reviewing my page Mintos. Unfortunately, my page Mintos was deleted from Wikipediua and I would like to restore it and explain my position. Mintos is European largest peer-to-peer lending platform. I am creating the article not in the marketing purposes. There are similar articles on Wikipedia about different peer-to-peer lending companies like Funding Circle (, Lending Club ( or others. I am hired by the company to create content and am being rewarded for it. I have rewritten the text and deleted the marketing related information leaving the basic information about the company. My relationship with User:Sparklz2048 are professional - this is a previous project manager for this project. this user no longer works on this project. Can you plase update me and explain how can I create a new Mintow Wikipedia page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ik158 (talkcontribs) 08:46, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

No matter how neutral of an article you create, the company needs to pass WP:NCORP to have an article, and Mintos clearly does not. I'd recommend refunding your client. Galobtter (pingó mió) 08:53, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.18[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Galobtter,

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.
