Re: welcome-a-bit[edit]

Hi Mikemoral,

Thanks for signing up! I've set up the list page, where your topics of interest are listed. Because you haven't selected any, it is the 'Developing' category name, where any new drafts are. The script will see it and send you an email page message shortly.

Your first message will be a list of what's currently under development in the topics of your interest. This might be a long list; this is normal. The future messages will only contain newly created submissions.

When a new draft is created I personally prefer to leave a new message at the talk page of the author, where they discover it more quickly -- perhaps more quickly than at the talk page of the article.

Please let me know if there are any issues with this message delivery. It is designed to encourage the recipient's involvement in helping newcomers, but simply testing the message delivery and reporting bugs would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks! I was a bit unclear what topics to select, though all drafts seems a good option for now. I got the first email a-okay, and I'll be sure to report back any problems or suggestions. —mikemoral (talk · contribs) 15:38, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
@Gryllida: If I wanted to switch to talkpage delivery, would I just make User:Mikemoral/wab/dev/wiki then delete User:Mikemoral/wab/dev/email? I don't want to break things here. —mikemoral (talk · contribs) 20:44, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
This is correct. You can do it by a page move. Ensure you also include the talk page, where the tool keeps a timestamp of the last notification. Gryllida (talk) 21:44, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
Thanks! —mikemoral (talk · contribs) 22:17, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

Btw, thanks[edit]

for creating the NPR category (not to lose track of that, amidst discussions of inclusion criteria). That's one we've needed for a while. --Pi zero (talk) 02:06, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

Bills pile on California governor's desk as legislative session ends[edit]

I don't think I'll even come close to finishing this before it crosses the outer freshness horizon.

  • Unless someone causes me to stop, I'll likely continue at least until midnight UTC, taking a bite out of the thing and getting a much better sense for the overall size of the task; if I'm on a roll at midnight I might run somewhat past that.
  • If the piece can be refreshed or even refocused (Gatwicked), that would be good.
  • If we don't find a way to do that, we'll take our lessons from it and march on.

--Pi zero (talk) 21:13, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

@Pi zero: If the task is too much to manage in such a short time, a refocus I could do is cover select bills as they are signed, or the general mass of new laws which could take effect if bills go unsigned by the Oct 13 deadline. Am alternative is to cover the laws taking effect in the new year, as a prepared story in a similar sort of article. —mikemoral (talk · contribs) 21:56, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Which reminds me: we really have to change how we handle prepared stories. The current procedure was meant to save time at the event, but was set up before the age of review. To save time in the age of review we need "pre-review" to be part of the preparation, done before the event, so that when the event happens most of the review has already been done. Perhaps what I'm doing now is sort-of pre-review, for however we deploy the material hereafter. --Pi zero (talk) 22:09, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
I'm thinking this would be best saved for a new laws of 2020 article. Only "emergency" bills can take immediate effect, iirc, so most bills would take effect Jan 1. The article was far too much to research and write to make it in the 72 hours post-Friday, and obviously a slight review nightmare. Plus a new laws of 2020 article would let us cover some of the already-signed laws, like the vaccination stuff which has been rather controversial here in CA (there was the "red liquid" incident), and some of the animal-related bills already signed. —mikemoral (talk · contribs) 22:18, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
I'll probably stop this review reasonably soon, at some good stopping point. --Pi zero (talk) 22:30, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Well, I stopped. You can see what I did. Seemed pretty well put together; the difficulty, as you're aware, is the quantity. --Pi zero (talk) 23:09, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
