Welcome to my talk page :)

In general, I prefer conversations about specific articles to be held on the corresponding article talk pages instead of here, so that other editors can follow them too.

If you are referring to a particular edit, it is best to use a diff link.

I usually reply here. I am often working on several things at the same time, so if I haven't answered yet even though I am online and editing elsewhere, please have some patience - if it is really urgent, prod me with a follow-up message.

I can often be reached via IRC, too (HaeB on Freenode).

Think my edit was mistakenly deleted

Hi HaeB,

You deleted my edit on Conscientiousness and subjective well-being because I did not add a source. The thing is, a source was already there. You can find the information in the same study that was used in a source for the first sentence. On page 145 you can find a table of the big five personality traits and how they influence subjective well-being.

Link to the edit: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Conscientiousness&type=revision&diff=1028841253&oldid=1028841123 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2a02:a03f:ea7c:8800:edeb:dfb5:ed92:d737 (talkcontribs) 11:13, 16 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, the revert was intentional - if you reuse a citation that is already in the text, you should communicate that to fellow editors who may be reviewing your change (personally I use something like "per already cited ref" in the edit summary in such cases). I'll also note that you did not update the citation's access date (it still says "Retrieved 2012-07-11"), so even following your logic regarding the article text, one would have had to conclude that you did not actually inspect that source.
In any case, I appreciate that you have followed up on this now, and thank you for the explanation! Based on this, I was going to reinstate your edit, but on closer inspection there are other issues with it, regarding WP:NOR in particular. See my notes at Talk:Conscientiousness (article talk pages are a better place for conversations about the actual article content, so that other editors can weigh in too - see also the note on top of this page.)

Wiktionary#Critical reception

This page is so severely out of date that it got tagged for that reason... in 2013. I'd like to improve it, but I don't really know where to look for sources besides Google Scholar. Given your experience monitoring research on WMF wikis, I was wondering whether you were interested in helping, or if you might have ideas on where to look for summaries of scholarly and non-scholarly assessments of Wiktionary. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 17:04, 26 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Invitation to join back discussion

Hello. You raised some points here but you didn't get back after that. Please do join the continued discussion if you have time and good will. --阿pp (talk) 05:57, 19 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@阿pp: Thank you for your courteous note, it is appreciated. I hadn't gotten to do much editing in recent weeks, but I just left another comment in that discussion.
Keep in mind that no one is obliged to "get back" in such content discussions, and neither are you obliged to wait for everyone's sign-off. But do expect that if policy violations that had been pointed out earlier remain unresolved, any editor may still take issue with them going forward. Regards, HaeB (talk) 16:54, 30 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for your help on China at the 2020 Summer Olympics, it is interesting that 阿pp hasn't resurfaced since 19 August 2021, while Casualfoodie has been indefinitely blocked. Have noticed that both editors have attempted to blank the disputed content in question (censorship?), later justifying the removal with state-owned media sources, is this a sign of the 50 Cent Party? Have had a similar problem on the Sun Yang page. FobTown (talk) 20:04, 5 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Started Recent research

I started Recent research because there were a couple of studies that caught my eye. Hoping you can still do your usual contribs for the upcoming issue. ☆ Bri (talk) 23:09, 22 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Bri: Great, thank you! Always feel free to start the draft already if you have something to contribute. The only thing I would suggest is to start with the section layout template, and also to check the Etherpad with the current todo list of papers to cover (to note which papers you covered, so as to avoid duplicate effort). The latter should always be linked in the newsroom. (If my note there is still from last month, then that means I haven't yet gotten to create the updated pad with the newest papers - but in that case feel free to leave that note in last month's pad instead.)
Thanks again for covering these two important items for this issue. Regarding the Google image dataset, I just added mention of the accompanying Kaggle competition and the WMF research team's aims and involvement, as both should be of interest for our readers in particular.

Knowledge Graph panels and click-through rates

Hey, we were discussing the other day what impact the Knowledge Graph panels had on Wikipedia click-throughs.

Re-reading Heather's Wikipedia@20 chapter, "The Rise of the Underdog", just now, I realised that we had both forgotten a part of the history that explained why click-throughs did drop for a while, causing panic at WMF (see fundraising and Knowledge Graph references on that page – this is the year the WMF started exceeding its fundraising targets).

Heather says, "Soon after Google’s announcement, former head of research at the Wikimedia Foundation, Dario Taraborelli, started taking notice of how Google represented information from Wikipedia in its knowledge panels. One of the first iterations featured a prominent backlink to Wikipedia next to each of the facts under the opening paragraph. There was even reference to the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike license that Wikipedia content is licensed under. But, as the panels evolved, blue links to Wikipedia articles started shrinking in size. Over time, the underscore was removed so that the links weren’t clickable, and then the links were lightened to a barely visible grey tone. Now, facts under the opening paragraph tend not to be cited at all, and hyperlinked statements refer back to other Google pages."

I remember this phase now, where Wikipedia wasn't clickable. (Here and here are some examples from 2013, showing Wikipedia in pale grey rather than as a blue hyperlink.) This is no longer the case. The blue Wikipedia hyperlink has become standard again in Google, and it's also standard on DuckDuckGo, the search engine used for the particular study we were discussing. Best, --Andreas JN466 12:28, 25 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at 2022 Winter Olympics shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war; 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 edit-war. See the bold, revert, discuss cycle for how this is done. 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 do not violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. Xoltered (talk) 23:49, 29 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Xoltered: It looks that this was an effort to retaliate against the 3rr warning you had received 25 minutes earlier, about your persistent edit-warring over several days against several other editors to remove Uyghur genocide from the article lead (and which you chose to dismiss within less than one hour, alongside separate concerns brought up by other editors about your editing).

Hello! Can you clarify on the reliability of the source material of "obituary :The Independent" report on NFAK. Is it safe to cite 'obituary' for a reliable source of info for a living person? I see one person removed it from that page.. Arorapriyansh333 (talk) 18:30, 1 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Note

You could add citation needed to my undisputed edits instead of just deleting without knowing the facts and seeing the whole picture. Georgeadelmoureed (talk) 12:54, 22 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Perhaps, but the text is still preserved in the version history, so once you find a reliable source for your assertion about the CIA's capabilities in "tracking brain waves and reading minds", you can easily add it back. Regards, HaeB (talk) 20:43, 27 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Recent research

Hey! Not sure if this is okay, but I've found a pretty recent and interesting study on Wikipedia citations and open access. I've made a draft here, but it still needs a lot of work. I've asked my boyfriend to revise it a bit, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on this too. GeraldWL 10:31, 28 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Gerald Waldo Luis: Apologies I missed this earlier. It looks great, feel free to add it to the draft for the upcoming issue, which is due for publication in a little over 22 hours already (27 March 20:00 UTC) - if that timing doesn't work out for you, we could also run it in a future edition. The only thing I can think of adding might be mentions of related research about open access citations on Wikipedia (e.g. [2] has earlier coverage of two or three relevant papers).

Would you consider becoming a New Page Reviewer?

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
Chart of the New Pages Patrol backlog for the past 6 months. (Purge)

Hi HaeB,

I've recently been looking for editors to invite to join the new page reviewing team, and after reviewing your editing history, I think you would be a good candidate. Reviewing/patrolling a page doesn't take much time but it requires a good understanding of Wikipedia policies and guidelines; the new page reviewing team needs help from experienced users like yourself.

Would you please consider becoming a New Page Reviewer? Kindly read the tutorial before making your decision (if it looks daunting, don't worry, most pages are easy to review, and habits are quick to develop). If this looks like something that you can do, please consider joining us. If you choose to apply, you can drop an application over at WP:PERM/NPR. If you have questions, please feel free to drop a message on my talk page or at the reviewer's discussion board.

Cheers, and hope to see you around, (t · c) buidhe 00:19, 2 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please approve the change

Hello, HaeB. Hope you are doing great! I don't think that I made any mistake by adding this external link to the time-lapse photography page.

The above videos on the page are just low quality and not expressing the "time-lapse" appropriately.

The link I have added is one the best time-lapse video in the world. It was taken in California and it is an award winning photograph collection of more than 10,000+ images.

HaeB, it is my request to you please approve the change. This is not just a normal time-lapse video, it is work of someone's year. Ryankillackey (talk) 20:26, 24 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
