  • If it's fair use, and doesn't have a rationale, it gets tagged {{ Di-no fair use rationale}}. No exceptions.

AFC Backlog

Articles for Creation urgently needs YOUR help!

Articles for Creation is desperately short of reviewers! We are looking for urgent help, from experienced editors, in reviewing submissions in the pending submissions queue. Currently there are 3940 submissions waiting to be reviewed and many help requests at our Help Desk.

Do you have what it takes?
  1. Are you familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines?
  2. Do you know what Wikipedia is and is not?
  3. Do you have a working knowledge of the Manual of Style, particularly article naming conventions?
  4. Are you autoconfirmed?
  5. Can you review submissions based on their individual merits?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then please read the reviewing instructions and donate a little of your time to helping tackle the backlog. You might wish to add {{ AFC status}} or {{ AfC Defcon}} to your userpage, which will alert you to the number of open submissions.

PS: we have a great AFC helper script at User:Timotheus Canens/afchelper4.js which helps in reviewing in just few edits easily!

We would greatly appreciate your help. Currently, only a small handful of users are reviewing articles. Any help, even if it's just 2 or 3 reviews, it would be extremely beneficial.
On behalf of the Articles for Creation project,

Gardner-Webb University page

Hello. For several years, there was a section in the Gardner-Webb University page about an athletics scandal that made national news. A few weeks ago, someone deleted it without explanation. I see that it was reinstated today, removed again, and then the page was locked. Now the article reads like it could have been written by the university's PR department. The scandal section could been better written, but the content was accurate. If anything, the person who removed it committed vandalism. I am hoping that, with some added citations, this section about an important part of GWU's history will be left in place. This is only one of many sources which can be easily located via a Google search: [1]


I apologize for breaking this - which I most assuredly am - but I just wanted to say hi and thanks. Hingleford ( talk) 08:06, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

New deal for page patrollers

Hi Vivio Testarossa,

In order to better control the quality of new pages, keep out the spam, and welcome the genuine newbies, the current system we introduced in 2011 is being updated and improved. The documentation and tutorials have also been revised and given a facelift. Most importantly a new user group New Page Reviewer has been created.

Under the new rule, you may find that you are temporarily unable to mark new pages as reviewed. However, this is nothing to worry about - most current experienced patrollers are being accorded the the new right without the need to apply, and if you have significant previous experience of patrolling new pages, we strongly encourage you to apply for the new right as soon as possible - we need all the help we can get, and we are now providing a dynamic, supportive environment for your work.

Find out more about this exiting new user right now at New Page Reviewers and be sure to read the new tutorial before applying. MediaWiki message delivery ( talk) 04:29, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
