CEDU Deletion

Hi, you recently deleted a change i had made on the CEDU page in regards to the experiences of one of the camp goers as you said I did not provide a source yet I was continuing from the source that was provided in the same bullet point a sentence earlier. The sourced sentence has three sentences after detailing the person's experiences but you deleted my sentence of his experience which was from the same source.

Hello Darkweb, Plesse forgive me if I’m not adding this discussion the proper place, you can point me to a more appropriate place. Let’s please discuss Andrew Baron. I admit I am biased but the article is also biased and I wish to make the article non-biased. Can you work with me on it? 2601:281:8180:1F10:7DC8:23EC:D12E:2EE8 (talk) 13:00, 31 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm probably not the best person to ask since I don't involve myself in the content side very heavily, but at a glance I don't see any immediate issues with the article. Per wikipedia guidelines NPOV does not necessarily mean equal weighting has to be given to the other POV, especially if it has little reliable coverage or represents a minority viewpoint. If you still think there's something wrong with the article in its current state, I would recommend asking over at WP:TEA for someone else to assess it, and go from there.

Antonio Nunez

Hey! Hope you're well. You just undid an edit I made to Antonio Nunez's page stating a source was not provided. However a source stating that was his debut was in fact provided (the BBC article). I corrected the previous statement that said he made his debut against Portsmouth.

I assume that IP was you editing while logged out, I've reverted my changes since I obviously didn't see the updated source. Apologies, Dark-World25 (talk) 13:13, 31 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


It’s not biased or controversial to add in an update to a legal case. It’s significant. Each time you have reverted the article, you acted without an understanding of the content or the case. You have also indicated that you are not interested in looking at the content, and that you only glanced. The man was false accused and that detail was provided. It’s critical to fairness to note that his case was dismissed and sealed. So I plan to add that information back in. Please do not frye critical information that helps give the reader important facts such as having a case dismissed. 2601:281:8180:1F10:7DC8:23EC:D12E:2EE8 (talk) 13:35, 31 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There are two issues:
  1. You cannot simply cite a self published source on a BLP article to claim that he himself was not guilty and the charges were dismissed. There is simply no reputable source to indicate otherwise, to take his word at face value would be akin to claiming that every criminal that maintains innocence is therefor not guilty.
  2. A plea of no contest is equivalent to an admission of guilt but with no civil liability. Yes the charges are technically "dismissed", but they are still shown on a criminal record.

Hi I'm the editor that expanded the indroduction and history section in the Armenian illuminated manuscript page, thank you for the remark you added about the rough translation, I do speak French so i did try to "de-roughen" the translation by Google translate as much as I can, may I ask, do you have any specific section or quote you felt it to be too obviously translated? As far I can see, the introduction seems to be just fine, but any note or remark for a specific section would be highly appreciated as Id be able to work on translating it manually. دانيالوه (talk) 16:03, 31 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, I try to further correct the grammatical and vocabulary structure of the overall content of the Wikipedia article, you checking whether it's still not correctly translated or not and telling me about your opinion on the changes would be highly appreciated. دانيالوه (talk) 18:42, 31 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Tried* دانيالوه (talk) 18:42, 31 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@دانيالوه: Hi! Thanks for contributing and sorry for not responding earlier. I believe that sentence structure and cohesion is the biggest issue with the article right now, for example the opening sentence reads "Armenian illuminated manuscripts form a separate tradition, related to other forms of Medieval Armenian art, but also to the Byzantine tradition", which isn't very clear at all (what is it separate to?). Unfortunately I am not proficient in French at all and am currently quite busy so I don't believe that I could be of much help here, but happy to see what I can do with regards to copyediting in about a week. Thanks, Dark-World25 (talk) 11:36, 1 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No problem and thanks for the ramark, I'll look more into correcting the overall structure of the page like you said. دانيالوه (talk) 12:20, 1 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Regarding the deletion of information due to the lack of a source.

Hi, I noticed you deleted the "children" section of T.P Meenakshisundaram's page due to the lack of a source. I'm not sure if there is information regarding this on any printed/digital media but I'm his great grandson. I'm eager to know whether this information can stay there because of that. Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lifh Qeriol (talkcontribs) 16:55, 31 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I've deleted the rest, added a reply to your post noting his "Hail Hitler" and blocked him from his talk page. Doug Weller talk 14:42, 1 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Cheers, Huggle caught the massive wall of text full of racial epithets threatening you, was rather surprised that it was not automatically caught by the edit filter and removed. Hope that didn't alarm you too much. Dark-World25 (talk) 14:46, 1 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Not at all. It's my second time being threatened in 24 hours. I am clearly doing something right. Doug Weller talk 14:49, 1 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

=Inquiry on a copyright violation allegation

@Dark-World25@NthepYou alleged that my June 1 2022 edit on the International Criminal Court investigation pertaining to Sudan infringes on the copyright of an unnamed, unmarked blog, bearing the URL: I have no knowledge of this unmarked blog. Every information that I have taken for this edit are from the official website of the International Criminal Court, at and I attribute every information this website to its true source, and make reasonable edits to the expressions taken from the source. In any event, my reports on the investigation and prosecution of the core international crimes such as crime against humanity, genocide, and warcrime, would have been a clear instance of fair use. This use is absolutely non-profit, and clearly for the purpose of nonprofit public education. There is limited, if any, creativity and imagination involved in the subject matter, which is purely a matter of fact i.e. X is prosecuted for Y on Z date. My edit has limited, if any, effect, on the commercial value of the subject matter. No one can reasonably claim that the International Criminal Court is in the business of prosecuting human rights violators to make money. Allegation of copyright infringement is serious. I invite you to justify your allegation and actions in not only reverting, but rolling back my edit. Regards. HollerithPunchCard (talk) 21:40, 4 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New page reviewer granted

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hi Dark-World25. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group. Please check back at WP:PERM in case your user right is time limited or probationary. This user group allows you to review new pages through the Curation system and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or nominate them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is vital to maintaining the integrity of the encyclopedia. If you have not already done so, you must read the tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the deletion policy. If you need any help or want to discuss the process, you are welcome to use the new page reviewer talk page. In addition, please remember:

  • Be nice to new editors. They are usually not aware that they are doing anything wrong. Do make use of the message feature when tagging pages for maintenance so that they are aware.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted. Please be formal and polite in your approach to them – even if they are not.
  • If you are not sure what to do with a page, don't review it – just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Accuracy is more important than speed. Take your time to patrol each page. Use the message feature to communicate with article creators and offer advice as much as possible.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you also may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In cases of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, or long-term inactivity, the right may be withdrawn at administrator discretion. signed, Rosguill talk 16:06, 5 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New Page Patrol newsletter June 2022

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
New Page Review queue June 2022

Hello Dark-World25,

Backlog status

At the time of the last newsletter (No.27, May 2022), the backlog was approaching 16,000, having shot up rapidly from 6,000 over the prior two months. The attention the newsletter brought to the backlog sparked a flurry of activity. There was new discussion on process improvements, efforts to invite new editors to participate in NPP increased and more editors requested the NPP user right so they could help, and most importantly, the number of reviews picked up and the backlog decreased, dipping below 14,000[a] at the end of May.

Since then, the news has not been so good. The backlog is basically flat, hovering around 14,200. I wish I could report the number of reviews done and the number of new articles added to the queue. But the available statistics we have are woefully inadequate. The only real number we have is the net queue size.[b]

In the last 30 days, the top 100 reviewers have all made more than 16 patrols (up from 8 last month), and about 70 have averaged one review a day (up from 50 last month).

While there are more people doing more reviews, many of the ~730 with the NPP right are doing little. Most of the reviews are being done by the top 50 or 100 reviewers. They need your help. We appreciate every review done, but please aim to do one a day (on average, or 30 a month).

Backlog drive

A backlog reduction drive, coordinated by buidhe and Zippybonzo, will be held from July 1 to July 31. Sign up here. WikiProject Barnstar Hires.png Barnstars will be awarded.

TIP – New school articles

Many new articles on schools are being created by new users in developing and/or non-English-speaking countries. The authors are probably not even aware of Wikipedia's projects and policy pages. WP:WPSCH/AG has some excellent advice and resources specifically written for these users. Reviewers could consider providing such first-time article creators with a link to it while also mentioning that not all schools pass the GNG and that elementary schools are almost certainly not notable.


There is a new template available, {{NPP backlog}}, to show the current backlog. You can place it on your user or talk page as a reminder:

Very high unreviewed pages backlog: 10239 pages according to DatBot as of 00:00, 17 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There has been significant discussion at WP:VPP recently on NPP-related matters (Draftification, Deletion, Notability, Verifiability, Burden). Proposals that would somewhat ease the burden on NPP aren't gaining much traction, although there are suggestions that the role of NPP be fundamentally changed to focus only on major CSD-type issues.

  • Consider staying informed on project issues by putting the project discussion page on your watchlist.
  • If you have noticed a user with a good understanding of Wikipedia notability and deletion, suggest they help the effort by placing {{subst:NPR invite}} on their talk page.
  • If you are no longer very active on Wikipedia or you no longer wish to be part of the New Page Reviewer user group, please consider asking any admin to remove you from the list. This will enable NPP to have a better overview of its performance and what improvements need to be made to the process and its software.
  • To opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself here.
  1. ^ not including another ~6,000 redirects
  2. ^ The number of weekly reviews reported in the NPP feed includes redirects, which are not included in the backlog we primarily track.

New Page Patrol newsletter August 2022

New Page Review queue August 2022

Hello Dark-World25,

Backlog status

After the last newsletter (No.28, June 2022), the backlog declined another 1,000 to 13,000 in the last week of June. Then the July backlog drive began, during which 9,900 articles were reviewed and the backlog fell by 4,500 to just under 8,500 (these numbers illustrate how many new articles regularly flow into the queue). Thanks go to the coordinators Buidhe and Zippybonzo, as well as all the nearly 100 participants. Congratulations to Dr vulpes who led with 880 points. See this page for further details.

Unfortunately, most of the decline happened in the first half of the month, and the backlog has already risen to 9,600. Understandably, it seems many backlog drive participants are taking a break from reviewing and unfortunately, we are not even keeping up with the inflow let alone driving it lower. We need the other 600 reviewers to do more! Please try to do at least one a day.

MB and Novem Linguae have taken on some of the coordination tasks. Please let them know if you are interested in helping out. MPGuy2824 will be handling recognition, and will be retroactively awarding the annual barnstars that have not been issued for a few years.
Open letter to the WMF
The Page Curation software needs urgent attention. There are dozens of bug fixes and enhancements that are stalled (listed at Suggested improvements). We have written a letter to be sent to the WMF and we encourage as many patrollers as possible to sign it here. We are also in negotiation with the Board of Trustees to press for assistance. Better software will make the active reviewers we have more productive.
TIP - Reviewing by subject
Reviewers who prefer to patrol new pages by their most familiar subjects can do so from the regularly updated sorted topic list.
New reviewers
The NPP School is being underused. The learning curve for NPP is quite steep, but a detailed and easy-to-read tutorial exists, and the Curation Tool's many features are fully described and illustrated on the updated page here.
  • Consider staying informed on project issues by putting the project discussion page on your watchlist.
  • If you have noticed a user with a good understanding of Wikipedia notability and deletion, suggest they help the effort by placing {{subst:NPR invite}} on their talk page.
