WikiProject Short descriptions[edit]

Hi there. Good to see you have joined the WikiProject! Good to have new members on board. I would recommend you add your name to the list on the project page.

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks![edit]


Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at

Thank you!

The Great April Fools' Day Edit War of 2020[edit]

Hello BEANS X2, and Happy April 1st. You have made a couple of edits to Wikipedia:April Fools/April Fools' Day 2020/The Great April Fools' Day Edit War of 2020 that were probably made in good faith, but actually disrupt our work on the article. We are trying to document an ongoing edit war that is considered humorous. Please don't make it more difficult for us than it has to be. Renerpho (talk) 14:46, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

@BEANS X2: I am trying to shut the fitishism stuff down, but that's not happening on the page you edit, it comes from the April Fool's Day page.Renerpho (talk) 14:47, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
Renerpho, WDYM? I am updating the section titles and improving readability. >>BEANS X2t 14:50, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
(edit conflict) I only add things to the timeline that actually appeared on WP:APRIL2020. It does not represent my opinion; I am just copying what other people have been saying in the edit war. For example, I couldn't care less about the 'fetishes', I was just quoting Jebcubed in this edit. >>BEANS X2t 14:50, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
BEANS X2 I see! Alright, sorry then.Renerpho (talk) 14:58, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
NP! I think we all get confused when navigating that page's history. >>BEANS X2t 15:06, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
Very much so!! Renerpho (talk) 15:09, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
BEANS X2 It wasn't you who tried to stop the fetishisms? Renerpho (talk) 14:55, 1 April 2020 (UTC)
See my above reply, Jebcubed renamed the section title to Stop with the fetishes seriously, it's just disgusting. I just added it to the page. proof >>BEANS X2t 14:58, 1 April 2020 (UTC)

Honestly, I would go to the talk page, if I didn't have to use 'Structured discussions' (ugh) >>BEANS X2t 10:39, 15 April 2020 (UTC)

Cite Unseen update[edit]

Hello! Thank you for using Cite Unseen. The script recently received a significant update, detailed below.

  • You can now toggle which icons you do or don't want to see. See the configuration section for details. All icons are enabled by default except for the new Green checkmark generally reliable icon (described below).
  • New categorizations/icons:
    • Megaphone Advocacy: Organizations that are engaged in advocacy (anything from political to civil rights to lobbying). Note that an advocacy group can be reliable; this indicator simply serves to note when a source's primary purpose is to advocate for certain positions or policies, which is important to keep in mind when consuming a source.
    • Hand writing Editable: Sites that are editable by the public, such as wikis (Wikipedia, Fandom) or some databases (IMDb, Discogs).
    • Red journal with an X Predatory journals: These sites charge publication fees to authors without checking articles for quality and legitimacy.
    • Perennial source categories: Cite Unseen will mark sources as Green checkmark generally reliable, Exlamation mark in orange triangle marginally reliable, No symbol generally unreliable, Stop hand deprecated, and Black X blacklisted. This is based on Wikipedia's perennial sources list, which reflects community consensus on frequently discussed sources. Sources that have multiple categorizations are marked as Blue question mark varied reliability. Note that Green checkmark generally reliable icons are disabled by default to reduce clutter, but you can enable them through your custom config. A special thanks to Newslinger, whose new Sourceror API provides the perennial sources list in a clean, structured format.
  • With the addition of the new categorizations, the Scale icon unbalanced.svg biased source icon has been removed. This category was very broad, and repetitive to the new advocacy and perennial sources categorizations that are more informative.

If you have any feedback, requested features, or domains to add/remove, don't hesitate to bring it up on the script's talk page. Thank you! ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 23:23, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
