New page reviewer granted[edit]

((safesubst:require subst|template=New Page Reviewer granted|1=

Hi Cukie Gherkin. 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 or ask via the NPP Discord. In addition, please remember:

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 In cases of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, or long-term inactivity, the right may be withdrawn at administrator discretion. If you can read any languages other than English, please add yourself to the list of new page reviewers with language proficiencies. ~~

House of Ashes FAC[edit]

Hey, since you were the one who did the GA review for The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes, I was wondering if you'd be interested in having another look at it now that it has been nominated for FAC? No big deal if you don't, asking just in case. -- ZooBlazer 21:26, 8 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I am interested, but FACs are pretty exhausting, and I literally just picked up three more GAs to review lol. Is there an upcoming deadline for the FAC being rejected? If not, I'd suggest watching the reviews of Leo Kliesen, Metal Combat: Falcon's Revenge, and Mega Man X: Command Mission. I'll try to get to the FAC once these are done, but feel free to remind me, okay? - Cukie Gherkin (talk) 21:29, 8 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Is there an upcoming deadline for the FAC being rejected?
There are two pending reviewers, so hopefully no risk of it being archived soon, although it's been open for two weeks and I know the FAC coordinators usually leave a message after around three weeks if little progress is made. -- ZooBlazer 22:40, 8 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Aight. Well, I'm almost done with two of the reviews, and then I'm going to work on Mega Man X. Should be good to do an FAC review after that. - Cukie Gherkin (talk) 22:42, 8 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Hey, I know you said you probably wouldn't have the time to finish a full review, but if you do have some spare time, could you do the image review instead? No worries if not. I'm sure someone will get to it eventually. -- ZooBlazer 08:38, 7 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Tagging pages for speedy deletion[edit]

Hello, Cukie Gherkin,

You've been editing on Wikipedia for a couple of years now. Please learn how to use Twinkle to tag pages for speedy deletion, PRODs, AFDs, etc. And review Criteria for Speedy Deletion so you are very familiar with what the criteria for speedy deletion are, when they apply and to what namespaces apply. You can't just put "Delete" and insert your own reason for deleting a page. To delete one of your user pages, the correct codes are either CSD U1 or CSD G7. Things will be much easier when you understand CSD better. Thank you. Liz Read! Talk! 07:59, 12 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Aftermath editorial policy[edit]

You mentioned at the last VG/S discussion that you'd contacted Grayson about their editorial policy. Do you still have that line of communication open? It seems that a number of commenters are withholding support contingent on that editorial policy, which they obviously have, getting published somewhere on the site.

New Pages Patrol newsletter April 2024[edit]

Hello Cukie Gherkin,

New Page Review queue January to March 2024

Backlog update: The October drive reduced the article backlog from 11,626 to 7,609 and the redirect backlog from 16,985 to 6,431! Congratulations to Schminnte, who led with over 2,300 points.

Following that, New Page Patrol organized another backlog drive for articles in January 2024. The January drive started with 13,650 articles and reduced the backlog to 7,430 articles. Congratulations to JTtheOG, who achieved first place with 1,340 points in this drive.

Looking at the graph, it seems like backlog drives are one of the only things keeping the backlog under control. Another backlog drive is being planned for May. Feel free to participate in the May backlog drive planning discussion.

It's worth noting that both queues are gradually increasing again and are nearing 14,034 articles and 22,540 redirects. We encourage you to keep contributing, even if it's just a single patrol per day. Your support is greatly appreciated!

2023 Awards

Onel5969 won the 2023 cup with 17,761 article reviews last year - that's an average of nearly 50/day. There was one Platinum Award (10,000+ reviews), 2 Gold Awards (5000+ reviews), 6 Silver (2000+), 8 Bronze (1000+), 30 Iron (360+) and 70 more for the 100+ barnstar. Hey man im josh led on redirect reviews by clearing 36,175 of them. For the full details, see the Awards page and the Hall of Fame. Congratulations everyone for their efforts in reviewing!

WMF work on PageTriage: The WMF Moderator Tools team and volunteer software developers deployed the rewritten NewPagesFeed in October, and then gave the NewPagesFeed a slight visual facelift in November. This concludes most major work to Special:NewPagesFeed, and most major work by the WMF Moderator Tools team, who wrapped up their major work on PageTriage in October. The WMF Moderator Tools team and volunteer software developers will continue small work on PageTriage as time permits.

Recruitment: A couple of the coordinators have been inviting editors to become reviewers, via mass-messages to their talk pages. If you know someone who you'd think would make a good reviewer, then a personal invitation to them would be great. Additionally, if there are Wikiprojects that you are active on, then you can add a post there asking participants to join NPP. Please be careful not to double invite folks that have already been invited.

Reviewing tip: Reviewers who prefer to patrol new pages within their most familiar subjects can use the regularly updated NPP Browser tool.
