A barnstar[edit]

I, (talk) (the IP of acagastya) award you the team barnstar for the tireless contribution to keep Wikinews updated! (talk) 02:04, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
Thank you very much, this is most appreciated ! -- Cirt (talk) 09:33, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

Review collision[edit]

I saw it on the queue, saw a problem, and immediate started writing a not-ready review. Apparently you must have started working on it just after I started writing my comments. Sorry about that; I should have used {{under review}}. I have in mind for an upgraded review gadget that it would automatically add the under-review tag, if not already there, when entering the gadget. --Pi zero (talk) 02:33, 18 October 2015 (UTC)


did I step on your toes? sorry; it seemed a reasonably tame review that I thought I could probably handle... --Pi zero (talk) 19:54, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

Review lag[edit]

No offense, but the two articles in the queue aren't touched for a long span of time. It has been 40 hours since it was submitted. (talk) 06:34, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Sorry been quite busy lately with other quality improvement projects. -- Cirt (talk) 07:44, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
Fwiw, my observation over time has been that a full review is really quite a large lump-sum of effort and intense mental focus, so that any particular individual may only be able to do it at very irregegular intervals (the intensity makes back-to-back reviews very problematic even when the reviewer theoretically has "time", and we get plenty of reviewer burn-out cases causing long wikibreaks). Matching up irregular opportunities for reviewers to review with irregular submissions is quite a challenge for the project. In the relative priority of major infrastructure improvements, I'd rate the review-scheduling problem as number two, after creating really good semi-automated assistants to reduce the size of that lump-sum for a full review (because making the review lump-sum investment a lot smaller would, hopefully, make each individual reviewer's opportunities to review a lot less irregular). Although more reviewers would obviously help, in the past I've occasionally seen an article go stale waiting on the queue when there were lots of reviewers all active on the project during the days it was happening. Just a bit of perspective (and, I realize, not of immediate help with the current review queue; the current review queue is always the immediate problem, which is one reason major infrastructure improvements are so hard to come by here). --Pi zero (talk) 10:47, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Review Queue[edit]

The review queue has 8 articles. EIGHT!
But, here is something for the articles.

  1. First case of cancer linked to the Fukushima Daichii Power Plant Disaster Style is inappropriate. And moreover it is stale.
  2. Fukushima the abandond landscape Style is inappropriate, and it is stale again!
  3. India now listening to Women’s testimonies to imprison rapists Out of two sources, one is from March 2015 and another is three days old. So, it is going to become stale.
  4. List of celebrations Listed under speedy deletion.
  5. Protection or Profits? A global issue of epic proportions. Inappropriate style, and appears to be an essay. Listed for deletion.
  6. Refugee Trafficking Crisis in Southeast Asia, a deadly journey. One source. And stale article. And is not a news.
  7. US Government seeks public opinion on elephant imports The one which looks good. But it is the third day for the article.

Plus, I have made many {{editprotected}} requests. Those requests can wait, but we must see that we don't lose an article. (talk) 06:25, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

All these have since been either not-ready'd or deleted. --Pi zero (talk) 21:33, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

News request[edit]

I have about 30 minutes (before I surrender this IP) I read the article, but I have no idea about the rules football. So I request you for this news to be written. Further, you can use {{Football stat}} and {{donut}} in the article. (talk) 08:41, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
