Melville Fuller scheduled for TFA

This is to let you know that the above article has been scheduled as today's featured article for 11 February 2022. Please check that the article needs no amendments. Feel free to amend the draft blurb, which can be found at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/February 2022, or to make more comments on other matters concerning the scheduling of this article at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured article/February 2022. I suggest that you watchlist Wikipedia:Main Page/Errors from the day before this appears on Main Page. Thanks and congratulations on your work.

Thank you today for Melville Fuller, introduced: "Chief Justice Melville Fuller was, by all accounts, a competent administrator and a kind man, but he also ended up on the wrong side of some of the worst decisions that the U.S. Supreme Court has ever rendered. Leading a conservative court in an era of change, the mustachioed jurist struck down the federal income tax, endorsed racial segregation, and turned laissez-faire into a constitutional mandate. Needless to say, the legal academy hasn't looked too favorably upon his tenure: despite recent attempts to rehabilitate his reputation, Fuller remains inextricably linked with what one scholar called "a far-off and bygone judicial age". Yet that age – one in which an increasingly conservative judiciary faced off against an increasingly progressive society – perhaps bears some similiarities to our own. The story of Melville Weston Fuller remains as relevant today as ever."! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:52, 11 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wiley Rutledge

Hey, Extraordinary Writ. I've finally finished the GA review for Wiley Rutledge. I probably should've abdicated the review to someone else when real life started getting extremely busy, but I spent what little free time I've had over the last couple days to finish up this review, and it's finally done. I'm sorry it took so long, and I hope it wasn't too big of a bother to you. TheTechnician27 (Talk page) 04:56, 27 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not a bother at all, TheTechnician27: I really appreciate you taking the time to review the article thoroughly. Hopefully you found it at least a little bit interesting! Best regards, Extraordinary Writ (talk) 06:39, 27 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Are there any reasons you can think of as to why a RfA would go south? -- TNT (talk • she/her) 06:22, 17 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ooh, interesting question, TheresNoTime. Let's see: I've only really been editing actively for about 16 months, my percentage of semi-automated edits is uncomfortably high, and I've certainly made my fair share of mistakes. I honestly don't know how an RfA would end up going: perhaps it would be smooth sailing, but more likely I think I'd end up with a fair number of opposes along the lines of NOTQUITEYET. I'd be curious to hear your thoughts, as well as those of anyone else who'd like to chime in. At the moment, I don't think I'd be comfortable running for a while longer, and even then I'd probably still require a fair amount of prodding. But you've certainly piqued my interest, and I'm very much grateful that someone whom I respect thinks I might be qualified! Best regards, Extraordinary Writ (talk) 18:46, 17 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(talk page stalker) 16 months isn't necessarily a problem. I passed mine last year with only about 14 or 15 months' experience, and none of the 10 non-struck opposes were really tenure-based (9 based on a series of NPP School-related CSD screwups, and one that isn't fully comprehensible that I think may be related to nominating a series of Thomas the Tank Engine articles for deletion). Barring a deep, dark secret I'm not aware of, I'd support an EW RFA. Hog Farm Talk 19:08, 17 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(talk page stalker) I find RFAs to be unpredictable. There can be very random Opposes based on a single edit that hits a nerve with an editor. But I think it's important to encourage promising candidates to consider taking an RfA on. Personally, I waited until I hit the 2 year mark as an active editor, I do think a certain length of tenure is important with some editors and I'd hope for at least 18 months. What I really look for, in addition to general competence, is editors with an even temperament who can keep cool in a conflict. I think you pass that bar so keep it in the back of your mind as a possibility in the future. Liz Read! Talk! 22:05, 17 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I second Liz's comments about keeping it in the back of your mind. I'd be willing to co-nom, although you'd probably do better to find a higher-stature editor than me for that. Hog Farm Talk 22:10, 17 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Many thanks to both of you for the advice and encouragement. I don't think I'd even consider running for a few more months at minimum, but I really do appreciate your feedback and kind words. If any passers-by have anything more to add, whether positive or negative, I'd be glad to listen: it's very useful to hear a variety of perspectives about RfA-related matters. Extraordinary Writ (talk) 07:11, 19 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Just saw this when leaving a comment about something else - EW you are an editor I as a newbie have interacted with in an FA review and that time I did an incorrect AFD closure, always been so helpful. I think that is demonstrated in that I came to you specifically for advice on getting an article to FA. You are polite, knowledgeable, and imho I do not see why you should not have a mop for helping out where you desire. MaxnaCarta (talk) 10:44, 20 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Deleted article LiveWorkPlay (Again)

Understandably our old conversations about this have been deleted, and I would not expect you to remember them from about 4 months ago, but basically, you ended up helping me with a rather dodgy effort about removing the page LiveWorkPlay and ultimately it was reversed. Well, it has happened again - despite the page having now gone through multiple discussions and vetting. I don't have the skills or experience to understand how these processes are being utilized but I believe it is much the same as what was unearthed on the previous occasion when this occurred. Basically, the page has been removed under false pretences (again). Iamthekanadian (talk) 19:00, 22 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ah, yes, I remember, Iamthekanadian. In a nutshell: The reason the article's deletion was reversed in November was because the wrong process had been used. This time, someone used the "correct" process, and that means it would be quite difficult to get the deletion undone. (If you have any questions about the details of these processes, I'd be glad to explain.) There's some information here about how to challenge deletions, but since there weren't any procedural issues with the deletion it's pretty unlikely that you'd be able to get the article restored. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions, and I'm genuinely sorry I can't be of more help. Extraordinary Writ (talk) 21:27, 22 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Banking laws

Would you be willing to give a quick look over Real Estate Bank of Arkansas to make sure I didn't butcher any of the legal stuff? I've been working on trying to repair an article for WP:URFA/2020 and ended up down that rabbit hole to clear up a redlink. Hog Farm Talk 04:33, 16 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Glad to: between the blatant corruption, the uprising against the circuit court, and the state legislator being killed in a duel on the House floor, you've certainly piqued my interest! Everything looks more-or-less fine to me. You might specify that the 1853 act ordered the attorney general to file suit: I think that would be a bit clearer. Any idea what actually happened with the bank's debts in the end? It would be nice to have that in the article, although I certainly understand if the sources are silent. By the way, I found this article, which discusses the bank's travails in depth; it might be worth a perusal in case it contains anything of interest. (Pages 379–380 seem to say that the bank's bonds weren't fully paid off until the 1890s!) Great work as always (and a really interesting topic). Cheers, Extraordinary Writ (talk) 06:53, 16 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Thanks for taking the time to look at it! I've incorporated that source and another I found - it turns out that we've had an article about a portion of the bank's bonds since 2009, which surprised me. Not gonna be FAC-able, but I will put it up for GAN and see what happens. Hog Farm Talk 22:45, 16 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It looks like it's going to be on the main page with DYK in a couple days.

Hello, Jack92108, and welcome to Wikipedia! Here are a few ideas: don't use contractions (like "don't", "won't", and "isn't"), avoid slang, and read other Wikipedia articles to see examples of our writing style. You might also try visiting the Simple English Wikipedia, which is a version of Wikipedia that's written in a simpler way: perhaps you'd enjoy editing there.

Hello, EW.

I have written and carefully sourced, a page for my father. So yes, it should be checked for bias, but I don't think there is one:). I wrote it on my user page with the visual editor:) but would like to move it into the queue for evaluation for bias and legitimacy. I think his accomplishments and the substantiation thereof is documented (academically) and without bias. How do I do this? I looked and it looks like I need to put HTML code into publish, but I couldn't understand how I move it from my user page to 'production' through formal wikipedia processes.....can you help? --Official PA Bio (talk) 22:59, 15 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Official PA Bio – good work. I've added a template to the top of the page to allow you to submit the draft. There should be a big gray box now at the top of the page; if you push the blue button that says "Submit your draft for review!", it should walk you through the submission process. (If you need to submit any more drafts in the future, just copy {{subst:submit}} and paste it onto the top of the draft.) The article will be reviewed by an experienced volunteer, although it can take a while. Could I make a few suggestions? These are things that a reviewer might point out, so you might want to get a head start on them.
  • It's really important to make sure that everything is written in your own words—we have a very strict policy to prevent copyright violations. For instance, your draft says serving on the boards of more than 30 non-profit and public-private organizations, and acting as Chairman of the Board of more than a dozen of them at the national, state and regional levels, which is very similar to what this site says (has served on the boards of more than 30 non-profit and public-private organizations, acting as chairman of the Board for more than a dozen of them at the national, state, and regional levels.) If the draft uses the same words and phrases as other sites, you might run into problems (pages can even be deleted if there are copyright issues).
  • Many reviewers don't like long lists of awards and achievements because they can make the article look like a résumé. I'd recommend mentioning some of the most important titles and honors in the "career" section and then removing the bulleted lists. A good rule of thumb is to only include information that's been mentioned in an independent source like a newspaper.
  • Refer to people by their last names; for instance Lehr earned a bachelor's degree in Business Administration rather than Bill earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration
Hopefully this is helpful; if you have any more questions, please feel free to ask. Cheers, Extraordinary Writ (talk) 00:32, 16 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A category discussion incorrectly closed

Hi, i see you closed a category about having "...in Czech Republic" in its title. Maybe you overlooked the comments in the discussion but there was an agreement on redirecting it to "in the Czech Republic", so as to have it listed alphabetically correct when editors go scrolling the HotCat list to add the category, instead of looking for it between "Vietnam" and "in the Dominican Republic" at the bottom of it, very counterintuitively position to think about. Can you please do that? There were various methods on how to do it in the discussion you closed. Thank you. --Opencross (talk) 11:10, 16 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You (Opencross) have misunderstood the discussion. Category:Defunct tennis tournaments in Czech Republic is now a redirect and Category:Defunct tennis tournaments in the Czech Republic appears correctly in Category:Tennis tournaments in Europe by country using the sort key |Czech Republic. Categories for such countries always use 'the'. See eg Category:Sport by country. Or see this for a complete list.

Opencross, I left Category:Defunct tennis tournaments in Czech Republic as a Template:Category redirect, which was what was suggested in the CfD. As a result, HotCat does still list the Czech Republic under C: "Defunct tennis tournaments in Czech Republic" is right between "Defunct tennis tournaments in Canada" and "Defunct tennis tournaments in Florida" in the HotCat list. Are you seeing something different? Apologies if I've misunderstood something. Extraordinary Writ (talk) 17:08, 16 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New Page Patrol newsletter May 2022

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

Hello Extraordinary Writ,

At the time of the last newsletter (No.26, September 2021), the backlog was 'only' just over 6,000 articles. In the past six months, the backlog has reached nearly 16,000, a staggering level not seen in several years. A very small number of users had been doing the vast majority of the reviews. Due to "burn-out", we have recently lost most of this effort. Furthermore, several reviewers have been stripped of the user right for abuse of privilege and the articles they patrolled were put back in the queue.

Several discussions on the state of the process have taken place on the talk page, but there has been no action to make any changes. The project also lacks coordination since the "position" is vacant.

In the last 30 days, only 100 reviewers have made more than 8 patrols and only 50 have averaged one review a day. There are currently 724 New Page Reviewers, but about a third have not had any activity in the past month. All 1031 administrators have this permission, but only about a dozen significantly contribute to NPP.

This means we have an active pool of about 450 to address the backlog. We cannot rely on a few to do most of the work as that inevitably leads to burnout. A fairly experienced reviewer can usually do a review in a few minutes. If every active reviewer would patrol just one article per day, the backlog would very quickly disappear.

If you have noticed a user with a good understanding of Wikipedia notability and deletion, do 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.

Restoration of page on Kamla Nath Sharma

Hello @Extraordinary WritExtraordinary Writ, I wish to thank you profusely for your indulgence in the absence of Daniel to whom I had marked a communication. The article on Kamla Nath Sharma (an engineer, researcher of Vedic Indian literature, and writer of Hindi language) which was put back as a draft article for further editing, has been thoroughly edited, pruned, improved by me over the last several months. I tried to 'move' it the mainspace, but goofed while doing it. May I request you to kindly consider moving the edited article on Kamla Nath Sharma to the main space, as I am not conversant with the process? @Extraordinary Writ, may I also request you to please 'undo' and revert the wrong changes I did of moving the name Kamla Nath Sharma to User Page of Aaditya Bahuguna and moving it back, to go back to status quo of 21 May 2022. I apologize for giving you all this trouble. Regards. Aaditya.Bahuguna (talk) 15:04, 23 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @Extraordinary Writ, Due to my mistake of making Cross-namespace redirect from mainspace of page on Kamla Nath Sharma to Aaditya Bahuguna talkpage and reverting,the draft page on Kamla Nath Sharma was deleted, as per the policy. I have also requested @Explicit, who deleted the draft page on Kamla Nath Sharma, to please reinstate it, may I also request you to kindly put back the page and undelete it? Regards. Aaditya.Bahuguna (talk) 05:23, 24 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello again, Aaditya.Bahuguna – hope you're well. This is a bit confusing because the page was moved so many times, but the administrator who deleted your draft wasn't Explicit (who was just doing some cleanup) but instead Jimfbleak, who deleted the page because he felt it was promotional and a copyright violation of this site. I'm not an administrator, so unfortunately I can't undelete the page for you. If you think the draft shouldn't have been deleted, you might want to leave a message at User talk:Jimfbleak. Hopefully this is helpful. Best regards, Extraordinary Writ (talk) 05:59, 24 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How can i write a article? --Maruf.naeem (talk) 05:39, 31 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Maruf.naeem, and welcome to Wikipedia! You can learn about the process for creating a new article at this link. It's important to make sure that the topic you're writing about has been already been discussed in detail by independent reliable sources, and don't forget to cite your sources. Creating a new article is one of the hardest things you can do here, so it's generally a good idea to get some experience working on other parts of our encyclopedia first. Feel free to let me know if you have any more questions, or you can ask at the Teahouse, where friendly and experienced volunteers will help you.

Archiving notice

Hey! During your moving of Talk:Shakya, you forgot to update the archive location. This is just a reminder - don't worry, I've fixed it. Thanks! Aidan9382 (talk) 04:29, 8 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ah, thanks for taking care of that (and Talk:Holodomor denial, and any other ones I've forgotten). I'll try to remember to check the archive template in future. It would be nice if there were a bot that could update it automatically—it seems like this is the sort of thing that could be automated without too much difficulty.

My failure to move Malaysian Telugus

I keep assuming by default that blue redirects have more than one edit, while this time it didn't. Sorry for that. Did the move myself. — Ceso femmuin mbolgaig mbung, mellohi! (投稿) 04:18, 9 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oh, not a problem at all, Mellohi! – don't worry about it. Thanks for all you've been doing to clear out the RM backlog. By the way, if you don't want to have to think about the number of revisions in the redirect at all, I hope you'll stop by WP:PERM/PM sometime: we always need more page movers. I see you're slightly below the suggested minimum edit count at the moment, but I imagine that wouldn't be a problem: from what I've seen, you have a solid grasp on our policies and guidelines, which is all that really matters.

Kharkov Collegium

Dear Extraordinary Writ, could you please explain me your decision not to change the title of the article "Kharkov/Kharkiv Collegium"? There were two positions in the discussion and only one independent opinion from user  AjaxSmack , who actually supported my arguments. My Canadian Ukrainian opponent, however, did not agree with it, which was totally expected for me (See: Wikipedia:Content disclaimer). Consensus between us was impossible, so I assumed that the opinions of independent users will be counted. The title of the essay was not changed, although I proved that in special studies on the history of the Collegium the spelling "Kharkov Collegium" is prevalent, even in studies by Ukrainian researchers. And I even explained why using the spelling Kharkiv in reference to the history of the Collegium is an anachronism. Of course I'm not going to start a discussion again, I see no point here and I have a lot to do, but I would be grateful for any explanation of your decision. Cheers, Ушкуйник (talk) 10:48, 11 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello Ушкуйник; hope you're well. I considered the second RM to be an extension of the first RM (as you requested), so if we're merely counting !votes we have two supporting Kharkiv (Mzajac and Amitchell125) and two supporting Kharkov (you and AjaxSmack). Consensus isn't a vote, of course, but I didn't find either side's arguments to be strong enough to overcome the lack of agreement. I did consider your points about the name used by specialist scholars, but titles used by experts aren't always preferred (see WP:RECOGNIZABILITY), especially if "independent, reliable English-language sources" more broadly favor a different title. Moreover, both you and Mzajac made reasonable arguments about which title is most prevalent in reliable sources, and my job as a closer isn't to decide the issue myself: after I discount !votes that are fallacious, at odds with policy, etc., I close the discussion in favor of the side that "has the predominant number of responsible Wikipedians supporting it". In this case, responsible Wikipedians were evenly divided, so there wasn't a consensus either way.
I hope this explanation makes sense. If you still feel I closed the RM incorrectly, you are of course welcome to open a discussion at move review. Best regards, Extraordinary Writ (talk) 18:59, 11 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question from Riyachattter (15:13, 15 June 2022)

Dietrich v The Queen

Hi Writ. About six months ago, you brought Dietrich v The Queen for a review of its featured article status. At the time, I tried to save it, but being brand new to Wikipedia had no idea of the monumental effort doing so would entail, and naively thought a few hundred words of expansion would do the trick. Well months later after spending many hours on the article, I now know that to be not so. I have almost finished re-writing the entire article, line by line I re-typed what was there, redoing the referencing (I used the style of referencing you did in Melville, cheers for that), and have been slowly working my way through the feedback provided at the FA review. I eventually want to re-nominate it at FA, but before I do please would you consider going through the article briefly and letting me know what you think of it now compared to when it was put up for review? I think there is still a long road to go, and I may be better served getting it brought up to GA before FA, but would like your thoughts. Thanks! MaxnaCarta (talk) 10:40, 20 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello MaxnaCarta—good work! It looks like the article is in much better shape than it was when I first nominated it for review. A few suggestions are below. (I'm certainly not an expert on the Australian legal system, so feel free to take my comments with a grain of salt.)
  • When you have things like As noted by Garkawe, it's generally best to make sure the reader knows who the person is; for instance by using something like "As noted by the legal scholar Sam Garkawe..." the first time the person is mentioned.
  • The end of the "conviction and appeal" section probably needs a citation.
  • Dietrich v The Queen is regularly cited in the High Court of Australia. Australia's highest and most supreme court regularly citing a decision it made nearly three decades ago demonstrates the lasting legacy of Dietrich v The Queen, as it is typical for the Court to change its perspective on an issue during such a long period of time. – is there a source for this?
  • I think you've done a pretty good job of addressing my original concerns about comprehensiveness. You might want to see if there's anything in this article by Brian Fitzgerald or in this one that's worth mentioning.
  • The article's structure strikes me as a bit confusing in places. A lot of the material in the "High Court appeal" section that discusses what the Court actually held would fit better in the "Judgement" section, I think. In other words, discuss the parties' arguments in the "High Court appeal" section and then discuss the Court's holdings in the "Judgement" section.
  • It might be worth mentioning somewhere what happened with McInnis—was it overruled?
  • Perhaps the "Judgement" section could go into a bit more depth about the justices' reasoning? (There's some information on pgs. 83–85 of the Fitzgerald source I mentioned above that might be useful here.) This is a pretty important part of the article, so I'd probably spend at least a few paragraphs on it.
Hopefully this is at least somewhat useful. I'd encourage you to run the article through the GA process first: even when I'm planning to take an article to FA, I always submit it at WP:GAN just to get some feedback from the reviewer. In the past, I've also found it useful to have someone at WP:GOCE/R copy-edit the article: they're very good at fixing the little stylistic problems (like using the correct kind of dash) that sometimes crop up at FAC. Anyways, nice work so far: I look forward to seeing the FA star restored! Best regards, Extraordinary Writ (talk) 00:45, 21 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
So helpful. Will do all of the above. Thanks @Writ! MaxnaCarta (talk) 02:21, 21 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Extraordinary Writ by the way - where are you searching for sources please? I think one of the issues is I am a lawyer in Australia, and we pretty much only use LexisNexis - this database is exclusively law, and I think my Wikipedia articles will need to go further than just law sources. The Fitzgerald article is a human rights focused piece - that will not come up in Lexis. Which database are you getting that and the other books from? Cheers MaxnaCarta (talk) 02:26, 21 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think I found the Fitzgerald article through Google Scholar, which can be quite useful for finding sources. There's also Google Books, which contains previews of all sorts of books, and the Internet Archive's Open Library (search here), which allows you to search and "borrow" online copies of books. Another thing: are you familiar with the Wikipedia Library? It gives Wikipedia editors access to a wide variety of subscription databases. Two of the most useful are HeinOnline (available here), which contains thousands of law journals, including over a hundred from Australia, and JSTOR (available here), which contains numerous scholarly publications on a variety of topics. Finally, if you find a potentially useful source that you don't have access to, you can leave a message at WP:REREQ, where there'll usually be someone who can send you a copy. Hopefully this is helpful! Extraordinary Writ (talk) 04:01, 21 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks Writ! I am most familiar with HeinOnline, Westlaw, and Lexis Nexis. Guess what, I actually went to my old law school library, to the bound leather section and found the Coper (1997) source you mentioned in the FA delisting. I legit did undergrad and postgrad law without once going to the old leather bound book section and instead using online databases, yet Wikipedia took me there. It's an adventure, this place. Anyway, thanks for all the help @Extraordinary Writ, I have heaps to do before noming it for GA review. Are you an attorney? Or just interested? Must be an interesting time in Washington right now with the SCOTUS decision. I wish I had been a fly on the wall of those justices as they all drafted their opinions...anyway thanks and stay safe - MaxnaCarta (talk) 10:46, 30 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Glad to be of assistance. You shouldn't have any serious trouble with the article at GAN, I don't think: some reviewers are stricter than others, but the criteria are pretty straightforward and the majority of articles pass. (The wait time can be pretty bad though—Melville Fuller took four months just to get a reviewer.) Once you're happy with everything, I'd just nominate the article and see what happens. Best of luck!

New Page Patrol newsletter June 2022

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

Hello Extraordinary Writ,

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.

Misc

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.

Reminders
  • 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.
Notes
  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.

Rutledge rv

If you agree that a primary source is appropriate for the quote in Wiley Rutledge then why did you revert? Surely the actual source of the quote with the case citation is more appropriate than a citation that quotes the same citation. No need to run the reader in circles. SamuelRiv (talk) 21:03, 1 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

When it's an option, I prefer to cite the secondary source for these sorts of things—that way, it's clear that I'm including material that secondary sources have deemed relevant rather than cherrypicking quotes directly from the primary sources myself (which can raise due weight concerns). I do agree that giving readers access to the original version is useful, though, so I've added Template:Wikisource to link to the text on Wikisource: hopefully that's a reasonable compromise? Extraordinary Writ (talk) 22:26, 1 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I understand the reasoning, but regardless you cannot do a citation that way. Any time you're extracting something like that from a source it has to be cited as: Primary author, Primary source, p. X. Quoted in: Secondary author, Secondary source, p. Y. The way I did it before was just to not get in the way of the pagination you had going. SamuelRiv (talk) 23:47, 1 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Mentor: How do I set up a page for myself? --Larksfield (talk) 21:11, 28 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Larksfield, and welcome to Wikipedia! You can read all the details about creating an article here, but the short answer is that you can use the article wizard, which will walk you through the process. Writing an article about yourself is discouraged, though; if you want to go through with it, it's really important that you make sure you're notable, which basically means that reliable sources like newspapers, magazines, or books have written about you in detail. We often say that writing an article from scratch is the hardest thing you can do on Wikipedia, so you might want to try helping to improve other articles before you start one of your own.

Rutledge

I'll be posting a source review at Rutledge's FAC, but while working on it I suddenly remembered I had a copy of David Atkinson's 1999 Leaving the Bench: Supreme Court Justices at the End. I looked up Rutledge and Atkinson says he was cremated, which I suppose is not necessarily inconsistent with the information in the article that his remains have been removed from the cemetery.

New Page Patrol newsletter August 2022

New Page Review queue August 2022

Hello Extraordinary Writ,

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.

Coordination
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.

Thanks, Kavyansh! I've currently got David J.

Looks like both Brewer and Marshall could be FA, and of course, you are really good with Supreme Court articles! I currently have the List of presidents of the United States at FLC (the highest read list on the entire site, with over annual readership of about 6.67 million). And after Mr. Bean, I was thinking about Monique Luiz, but it needs some fixing. I'm trying to bring obscure figures like Abbott, Bean, etc to GA/FA status.
