Reviewing qualityEdit

I've said what I want on this one. Please look at the as-reviewed version linked to in that talk page section. --Brian McNeil / talk 11:03, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

I took the liberty of removing it as the top main lead off the Main Page. Please note that in doing so I made the replaced it with the most recently published article which I happened to write; my intention was not to make an article I wrote more visible and I'm happy for anyone to replace it with another article. I put the third most recently article (Ex-cosmonaut Konstantin Feoktistov dies; Soviet space pioneer was 83) as top left lead, a slot previously occupied by said Former Iranian vice-president sentenced to six years; released on bail pending appeal article. --Александр Дмитрий (Alexandr Dmitri) (talk) 11:31, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
This was on Lead 1? I never noticed that; certainly wasn't good enough to go there. --Brian McNeil / talk 11:44, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
I think this discussion needs to be moved to the articles talk page or broadened beyond the one article. --RockerballAustralia (talk) 11:59, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
There was the issue on this particular article, and the points to bring that up to scratch should be dealt with on it's talk. However, various of the issues - such as conforming to the style guide and being cognizant of an international reader audience - are more important to bring up here. If not already present in rules/guidelines for reviewers they should be incorporated into such. Scattering the various "sub-standard" review issues hither and yon is probably a bad idea; it leaves the knowledge and experience needing found through 'wiki-archaeology', instead of all being in one place. --Brian McNeil / talk 16:00, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
That was basically my point. There are other articles (IDK which) that have similar issues. --RockerballAustralia (talk) 22:26, 23 November 2009 (UTC)


I'll make this quick; need to be elsewhere soon, but is anyone planning on closing Mjroot's request for editor status anytime soon? It's been there for two weeks, and nothing's come of it; probably be a good idea to not let it fall through the cracks. Cheers, C628 (talk) 01:49, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

He failed. Just nobody wants to close it :-P --Diego Grez let's talk 01:52, 26 April 2010 (UTC)


Is there any objection to adding a reconfirmation section to this page? It doesn't seem like a big deal, since reconfirmation is voluntary —just a convenience for the self-nominator, really— but I figured I ought to give folks an opportunity to object, to avoid an embarrassing revert in case somebody does see a problem with it. --Pi zero (talk) 14:07, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Actually, I think a request for reconfirmation section here is a really good idea. What I think is worth discussing is what details a reconfirm should include. Off-the-cuff, I'd say a list of all articles reviewed in the last x weeks, or all noticably post-publish correction work on others' review work. -- Brian McNeil (alt. account) /alt-talkmain talk 14:34, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Close rfp on phearsonEdit

I have been waiting for awhile for this to close so that I may begin editing again. Phearson (talk) 03:23, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Reviewer rightsEdit

can someone grant me reviewer rights? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Idnamesay (talkcontribs) 01:44, 17 December 2017 (UTC)

No. You have no earned reputation here on which to justify a request for them. --Pi zero (talk) 02:04, 17 December 2017 (UTC)
