List of reviewers?[edit]

Is there a list of authorized reviewers anywhere? Stevetauber (talk) 20:45, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

If you look at the top of Special:RecentChanges, where it says how many reviewers we have, follow that link and the target page has a link to the list of reviewers.
We've got two university journalism classes submitting articles this semester, and I figure the one at University of Wollongong probably has class on Wednesday since I often get up Wednesday morning to a massive glut on the review queue. --Pi zero (talk) 22:03, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
The students have a consistent poor habit of totally ignoring requests to try and avoid bulk submitting just because they happened to have a class that day. BRS (Talk) (Contribs) 23:27, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Well, not totally ignoring, I think. Seems to me some of them have been submitting at other times of the week, more than used to. Evidently enough went for Wednesday to create a substantial glut, though. --Pi zero (talk) 00:23, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
How's the path to becoming a reviewer? What should I be "practicing"? Stevetauber (talk) 03:40, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
@Stevetauber: You might find WN:Tips on reviewing articles helpful. There are also some notes on its talk page about possible additions/improvements that haven't yet been implemented. --Pi zero (talk) 01:59, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Support request with team editing experiment project[edit]

Dear tech ambassadors, instead of spamming the Village Pump of each Wikipedia about my tiny project proposal for researching team editing (see here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Research_team_editing), I have decided to leave to your own discretion if the matter is relevant enough to inform a wider audience already. I would appreciate if you could appraise if the Wikipedia community you are more familiar with could have interest in testing group editing "on their own grounds" and with their own guidance. In a nutshell: it consists in editing pages as a group instead of as an individual. This social experiment might involve redefining some aspects of the workflow we are all used to, with the hope of creating a more friendly and collaborative environment since editing under a group umbrella creates less social exposure than traditional "individual editing". I send you this message also as a proof that the Inspire Campaign is already gearing up. As said I would appreciate of *you* just a comment on the talk page/endorsement of my project noting your general perception about the idea. Nothing else. Your contribution helps to shape the future! (which I hope it will be very bright, with colors, and Wikipedia everywhere) Regards from User:Micru on meta.
