LuK3, then please make a new table counter for senior snooker tournament wins, I do not see how a player after retiring can still add titles to their professional non-ranking wins, while those tournaments are participated by amateurs. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:02, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Hello, I do not know much about snooker. However, if you want to discuss a new table, I would suggest taking it to the talk page and request it to be created for you. -- LuK3 (Talk) 15:32, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
I've checked the talk page for Jimmy White, everything seems to be from years ago so I figured nobody would see what I write on the talk page, so I wanted to get the attention of those who cares by editing the main page, maybe they could make sense of it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:24, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

New Page Review newsletter September-October 2019[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello LuK3,


Instead of reaching a magic 300 as it once did last year, the backlog approaching 6,000 is still far too high. An effort is also needed to ensure that older unsuitable older pages at the back of the queue do not get automatically indexed for Google.


A proposal is taking place here to confirm a nominated user as Coordinator of NPR.

This month's refresher course

Why I Hate Speedy Deleters, a 2008 essay by long since retired Ballonman, is still as valid today. Those of us who patrol large numbers of new pages can be forgiven for making the occasional mistake while others can learn from their 'beginner' errors. Worth reading.

Deletion tags

Do bear in mind that articles in the feed showing the trash can icon (you will need to have 'Nominated for deletion' enabled for this in your filters) may have been tagged by inexperienced or non NPR rights holders using Twinkle. They require your further verification.

Paid editing

Please be sure to look for the tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary. WMF policy requires paid editors to connect to their adverts.

Subject-specific notability guidelines' (SNG). Alternatives to deletion
  • Reviewers are requested to familiarise themselves once more with notability guidelines for organisations and companies.
  • Blank-and-Redirect is a solution anchored in policy. Please consider this alternative before PRODing or CSD. Note however, that users will often revert or usurp redirects to re-create deleted articles. Do regularly patrol the redirects in the feed.
Not English
  • A common issue: Pages not in English or poor, unattributed machine translations should not reside in main space even if they are stubs. Please ensure you are familiar with WP:NPPNE. Check in Google for the language and content, and if they do have potential, tag as required, then move to draft. Modify the text of the template as appropriate before sending it.

Regular reviewers will appreciate the most recent enhancements to the New Pages Feed and features in the Curation tool, and there are still more to come. Due to the wealth of information now displayed by ORES, reviewers are strongly encouraged to use the system now rather than Twinkle; it will also correctly populate the logs.

Stub sorting, by SD0001: A new script is available for adding/removing stub tags. See User:SD0001/StubSorter.js, It features a simple HotCat-style dynamic search field. Many of the reviewers who are using it are finding it an improvement upon other available tools.

Assessment: The script at User:Evad37/rater makes the addition of Wikiproject templates extremely easy. New page creators rarely do this. Reviewers are not obliged to make these edits but they only take a few seconds. They can use the Curation message system to let the creator know what they have done.

DannyS712 bot III is now patrolling certain categories of uncontroversial redirects. Curious? Check out its patrol log.

Go here to remove your name if you wish to opt-out of future mailings.

September 2019[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent contributions at User talk: appear to show that you are engaged in edit warring; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not override another editor's contributions. See the bold, revert, discuss cycle. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.
The user is allowed to remove the warnings, see WP:BLANKING. You should not keep reverting his blanking, see WP:Don't restore removed comments. David Biddulph (talk) 15:46, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

David Biddulph, I appreciate the warning. It was my assumption that, according to WP:3RRNO, talk page and warning blanking by a blocked IP would constitute obvious vandalism. -- LuK3 (Talk) 16:07, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Bryan Singer[edit]

I saw that you placed a protected icon on the page but I don't see where anyone actually protected it. Is it semi-protected? Dharmalion76 (talk) 20:20, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi Dharmalion76, I'm looking at the logs for the page and it looks like pending changes was applied on February 24, 2019. -- LuK3 (Talk) 20:24, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure that expired 24 April 2019. Was it extended? Dharmalion76 (talk) 20:28, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
@Dharmalion76: From what I gather from the protection log, I believe auto-accept is still in effect for autoconfirmed so any editor below still needs their edits approved. -- LuK3 (Talk) 20:34, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for explaining that for me. I'm still learning some of this stuff. :) Dharmalion76 (talk) 20:35, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Marc Morano wiki page[edit]

You have allowed multiple leftwing talking points, unsupported by facts to remain on the Marc Morano page; despite your claim that Wiki tries to keep information on its pages neutral. Allowing statements such as "climate denier" and "pseudoscience" in describing Mr. Morano and his positions to remain on the page clearly demonstrates Wiki's leftwing bias. You're supposed to be providing an encyclopedia-like format; not one for leftwing activists to insert their opinions as is clearly being done on the Marc Morano page. And I have no affiliation with Mr. Morano whatsoever.

As an example and from the page:

Marc Morano (born 1968)[1] is a former Republican political aide who founded and runs the website, which presents pseudoscientific views on climate change.[2][3] ClimateDepot is a project of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), a Washington, D.C. non-profit that promotes climate change denial.[4][5]

If you truly adhered to an encyclopedia format, then all that should be allowed in that sentence is:

Marc Morano (born 1968)[1] is a former Republican political aide who founded and runs the website

But due to your obvious leftwing bias, you have allowed statements such as "which presents pseudoscientific views on climate change." and "non-profit that promotes climate change denial." to remain.

Those statements are opinions; they are not facts. Why not allow facts such as THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS HUMAN-CAUSED CLIMATE CHANGE to be posted? I'll tell you why...because Wiki is run by a bunch of leftwing lunatics who pretend to be neutral. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JustTheFactsAndNothingButTheFacts (talkcontribs) 23:50, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

@JustTheFactsAndNothingButTheFacts: I suggest taking this issue to the article talk page and discuss your proposed changes. I also suggest maintaining civility and stop with the personal attacks. -- LuK3 (Talk) 23:59, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Hello Jehielwilliams7000, I reverted your addition because you didn't have the appropriate reliable sources to attribute the information to. I suggest reading our page on inline citations to help you in adding a citation. If you need any more help please let me know! -- LuK3 (Talk) 21:43, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Karl Pilkington Birthdate[edit]

Hi, why are you reverting edits providing Karl Pilkington’d birthdate? ArthurWithCommonSense (talk) 22:54, 28 September 2019 (UTC)

@ArthurWithCommonSense: IMDB is not considered a reliable source, according to Wikipedia:External links/Perennial websites#IMDb. In addition it looks like you are evading a block. -- LuK3 (Talk) 22:59, 28 September 2019 (UTC)

@Luk3: Hi, Luk. First off, I haven’t got a clue of what you’re talking about. I am not evading any blocks. Secondly, if you skip to the 1:20 mark on this video, you will see that Karl himself claims to share a birthdate with Bruce Springsteen (who was born on the 23 of September). Now, I’m not an expert, but I believe Karl would know when his own date of birth is. What do you think?

Welcoming new users[edit]

Hi. You are doing a great job reverting vandalism, but you sometimes miss some. Before welcoming new users, please consider taking a few moments to investigate if they are truly deserving of a welcome. 1 edit is not enough for a welcome, and vandals should be reported rather than thanking them for their edits. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 03:01, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Hello Kudpung, hope all is well. Thank you for the note. It is a force a habit to throw a welcome up on their talk page but I will be more diligent moving forward. Thank you again! -- LuK3 (Talk) 11:58, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

What the Health page has been vandalised and you are allowing it[edit]

Please stop undoing my constructive edits. I am trying to restore the page. It has clearly been edited as someone labelled the film as an "agenda" and is citing only criticism against the film instead of the multiple doctors who praise the film and the hundreds of scientific journals backing it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:40, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

(edit conflict) Your edits here and here violates Wikipedia's policy on adhering to a neutral point of view and original research. In addition, you accused me of an "anti-vegan agenda", according to your edit summary. That is why your edits were reverted and warned. -- LuK3 (Talk) 02:45, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

October 2019[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm CASSIOPEIA. I wanted to let you know that I reverted one of your recent contributions —specifically this edit to UFC 243— because it did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you have any questions, you can ask for assistance at the Help desk. Thanks. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 02:43, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

CASSIOPEIA, looks like you warned the wrong editor. My only edit on that article was a vandalism revert. -- LuK3 (Talk) 02:47, 6 October 2019 (UTC)
Hi LuK3, I am so sorry. The message above was not for you but for other editor. Somehow, either I click the wrong line or Huggle did pick up the line I placed (it happened a number of times before). Either way, mistakes is all mine. My apologies again. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 04:47, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

What the Health page has been vandalised and you are allowing it[edit]

I didn't accuse you of an anti-vegan agenda, obviously - I was referring to the person who made the original edits. That should be obvious. LOOK at the What the Health page, someone has made a total disgrace of it and you are allowing it by reversing my edits - if Wikipedia's rules call for neutrality, then claiming that What the Health promotes a "vegan agenda" and going on about how it has only been criticized without offer the alternative viewpoints where many physicians praised the film and responded to criticism, that to me is not neutral, that is unabashedly anti-vegan, which again you are allowing.

Please respond to this, and either restore the page to its ORIGINAL state, or I will request a 3rd party.

This is the vandalized state you are allowing:

"What the Health is a 2017 film promoting a vegan agenda.[1]

The documentary has been criticized by a number of medical doctors,[2][3] dietitians,[4][5][6] and investigative journalists[7][8] for what they describe as confusing causation with correlation, cherry picking science studies, using biased sources, distorting study findings, and using "weak-to-non-existent data"." — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:02, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

After looking through the page history, I have re-added the previous neutral lede. However, if you do re-add your own views, it will get reverted. Thank you. -- LuK3 (Talk) 03:08, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

Hello Frankerthebest, according to Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion, you as the creator of the two articles cannot remove the speedy deletion template. You have to include a credible claim of significance or else it will be deleted. I suggest reading Wikipedia's notability guidelines. -- LuK3 (Talk) 12:37, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

Richard Pan vandalization[edit]

HI - saw you reverted some recent vandalization to Richard Pan's page - I'm a newish editor and unsure how to add to the biographies of living persons noticeboard about the repeat vandalization? I appreciate your knowledge & experience!

Hello Kestrien, thank you for the note! I see you did undo that vandalism edit over at Richard Pan and warned that IP. Usually if they do continue with vandalism, I report them to Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism. WP:BLPN is more reserved for chronic and ongoing issues with BLP articles. For reporting vandals and spammers to the vandalism noticeboard, you can read Wikipedia:Guide to administrator intervention against vandalism.
If you do want to get more into anti-vandalism work, I would highly suggest looking to tools like Twinkle or Huggle to help you with your vandalism fight. These tools can help you revert edits, warn editors, and tagging articles, among other uses. My talk page is alwaya open if you do have a question. Thanks! -- LuK3 (Talk) 21:54, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

New Page Review newsletter November 2019[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello LuK3,

This newsletter comes a little earlier than usual because the backlog is rising again and the holidays are coming very soon.

Getting the queue to 0

There are now 726 holders of the New Page Reviewer flag! Most of you requested the user right to be able to do something about the huge backlog but it's still roughly less than 10% doing 90% of the work. Now it's time for action.
Exactly one year ago there were 'only' 3,650 unreviewed articles, now we will soon be approaching 7,000 despite the growing number of requests for the NPR user right. If each reviewer soon does only 2 reviews a day over five days, the backlog will be down to zero and the daily input can then be processed by every reviewer doing only 1 review every 2 days - that's only a few minutes work on the bus on the way to the office or to class! Let's get this over and done with in time to relax for the holidays.
Want to join? Consider adding the NPP Pledge userbox.
Our next newsletter will announce the winners of some really cool awards.


Admin Barkeep49 has been officially invested as NPP/NPR coordinator by a unanimous consensus of the community. This is a complex role and he will need all the help he can get from other experienced reviewers.

This month's refresher course

Paid editing is still causing headaches for even our most experienced reviewers: This official Wikipedia article will be an eye-opener to anyone who joined Wikipedia or obtained the NPR right since 2015. See The Hallmarks to know exactly what to look for and take time to examine all the sources.

  • It is now possible to select new pages by date range. This was requested by reviewers who want to patrol from the middle of the list.
  • It is now also possible for accredited reviewers to put any article back into the New Pages Feed for re-review. The link is under 'Tools' in the side bar.
Reviewer Feedback

Would you like feedback on your reviews? Are you an experienced reviewer who can give feedback to other reviewers? If so there are two new feedback pilot programs. New Reviewer mentorship will match newer reviewers with an experienced reviewer with a new reviewer. The other program will be an occasional peer review cohort for moderate or experienced reviewers to give feedback to each other. The first cohort will launch November 13.

Second set of eyes
  • Not only are New Page Reviewers the guardians of quality of new articles, they are also in a position to ensure that pages are being correctly tagged for deletion and maintenance and that new authors are not being bitten. This is an important feature of your work, especially while some routine tagging for deletion can still be carried out by non NPR holders and inexperienced users. Read about it at the Monitoring the system section in the tutorial. If you come across such editors doing good work, don't hesitate to encourage them to apply for NPR.
  • Do be sure to have our talk page on your watchlist. There are often items that require reviewers' special attention, such as to watch out for pages by known socks or disruptive editors, technical issues and new developments, and of course to provide advice for other reviewers.
Arbitration Committee

The annual ArbCom election will be coming up soon. All eligible users will be invited to vote. While not directly concerned with NPR, Arbcom cases often lead back to notability and deletion issues and/or actions by holders of advanced user rights.

Community Wish list

There is to be no wish list for WMF encyclopedias this year. We thank Community Tech for their hard work addressing our long list of requirements which somewhat overwhelmed them last year, and we look forward to a successful completion.
