... is saying hello, and looking forward to add the WAM tool for adding articles this November too! Deryni (talk) 19:09, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi Deryni! Sure, I'll create them all semi-automatically closer to the starting date (so that I don't have to do it manually every time). Le Loy 22:53, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
Hi again. Now it's closer to the starting date, so I hope you'll create them now, or at latest tomorrow!? Deryni (talk) 21:30, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Hi Deryni, I've been working on it for the whole day today :-) It's almost done, I'm doing some last minute checks. Le Loy 09:21, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
  • All done! Le Loy 10:36, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
Very nice job! Certainly looking forward to November, now! Deryni (talk) 19:46, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

Articles after 0:00 MET[edit]

Good morning! User:Furfur wrote two articles jaust after 0:00 MET, but didn't realize, this was one hour too early to UTC. I made last year the same mistake. As juror, I would accept the two articles again. Can we add them to the list? Greetings, --J. Patrick Fischer (talk) 09:34, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Hello J. Patrick Fischer! I'll add them for you, please provide the articles' titles. Le Loy 04:38, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Hello Le Loy, the two articles are the following: de:Liberty Times and de:Liugui. Thank you very much! --Furfur (talk) 10:54, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi Millars, I've added you all to the juries, please check if it works. Le Loy 04:38, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. It works for me. Millars (talk) 09:18, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Imported articles[edit]

Same like last year. In German Wikipedia, we have to import the whole version history, if we are translating articles. So, the tool is not getting the correct author and date. For example: de:Manuel Godinho de Erédia. The judges have to check this articles closer, but that worked last year. Greetings, --J. Patrick Fischer (talk) 20:38, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

I've changed the requirement from 'must be new' to 'should be new, otherwise mark it red for the jury'. Le Loy 04:38, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! --J. Patrick Fischer (talk) 14:09, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, it still not works, because I was not the creator in english version. :-) --J. Patrick Fischer (talk) 14:15, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia Asian Month 2018[edit]

The 2018 Asian Month organizers on English Wikipedia are @Sky Harbor: and @SuperHamster: - set them as jury members.[1] Another thing to note - Croatian Wikipedia is also participating. Please fix these data on Fountain Tool! --Agusbou2015 (talk) 15:55, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia Asian Month 2018 In Sindhi[edit]

Hello we are running Asian month in and current jury member is not active, Please remove his name, and add @BukhariSaeed: and me as a new jury member. Arslanali (talk) 16:56, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi Le Loy, can you please add the Urdu & Sindhi template WAM talk 2018 automatic feature in the fountain tool for Urdu and Sindhi Wikipedia? Thanks in advance.— Bukhari (Talk!) 17:07, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
Hi Arslanali, done, please check. Le Loy 23:10, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
Ле Лой First of all the claim of Arslanali is not right, I am active and doing my jury tasks sincerely as per WAM 2018 rules, I have previously organised WAM 2015, 2016, 2017 and now organizing WAM 2018, And I have a best experience of WAM and I was awarded with a WAM card in 2015 as well, So if you have removed me from the jury membership without consulting me its unfair, I request you to revoke it and make me Jury member and don't make others jury member except BukhariSaeed. What actually is that Arslanali did not followed the rules and principles of WAM 2018 and I didn't accept his article which I analysed was not meeting the criteria and rules of WAM 2018, and in retaliation (I perceive) he is misguiding you and when I came here I saw this. So how can we assign a jury member task to an inexperienced user who didn't have knowledge of WAM2018 rules?. I request you to revoke such jury membership assignment to Arslanali and make me again Jury member. Expecting a positive and a dignified role from you.JogiAsad (talk) 21:36, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
@JogiAsad: I wrote this on 3 November and unfortunately nobody was there to organize this event, can you show me any activity from nov 1 to 3 regarding this event? now if you are here and you are working with us, we welcome you, personly I don't have the problem with you, as admin it's my responsibility that i don't wait for any so-called "Senior Member", we all have same rights. and there is no such thing like "misleading" if anyone is inactive why we put in him in the jury? I this make any sense? Thanks, Arslanali (talk) 10:24, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
kindly be polite in your wordings, I have judged the article during this week, updated the WAM rules as per criteria of WAM 2018 besides this I have been running a campaign on social media, so how can you say that I am inactive?. and for your kind information I am admin at Sindhi Wikipedia.JogiAsad (talk) 19:52, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
JogiAsad, sorry, have I deleted you from the organiser's list? I can see your marks. Le Loy 04:25, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
Ле Лой However, My name as a Jury is showing THERE but I can't judge the articles, when I click to judge and click on accept or comment it does not move and remains at the same location.JogiAsad (talk) 09:07, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
JogiAsad, do you click 'Save' after 'accept'? Le Loy 03:16, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
Ле Лой No not that way, there is a dialog Accept this article?, and I clicked yes and then clicked comment and wrote a comment and then Clicked on the Save button near Skip. no neither Save button nor skip button is working as it worked earlier performing. I have uploaded a screen shot of this problem.

de:Kowloon station (MTR)[edit]

Hello! Next problem: The article de:Kowloon station (MTR) of user:-jkb- was moved to de:Kowloon Station (MTR) after upload and judged in the tool. But after moving, the point is lost. Re-loading is not working. --J. Patrick Fischer (talk) 14:27, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

Hello J. Patrick Fischer, I fixed it, please check. Next time you (any jury member) can delete the article from the Fountain (from the drop-down menu) and submit it on the user's behalf. Le Loy 23:16, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi. When trying to re-load it for the Asian Month I've got several times the error message "Network error. Try again: 500 Internal Server Error <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "- ... ..." (is very long) Cheers -jkb- 15:32, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi -jkb-, I've changed the article's title, please check if the problem is resolved. Le Loy 23:16, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
Hi and thanks Ле Лой; no, not now (see, I schould have 7 rticles and 7 points), but could it be a problem of cache or replag? Thanks once again, -jkb- 23:34, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
-jkb-, the reason is that Sebastian Wallroth gave this article 0 points ("not accepted"). Ask him to change it, then it's going to be fine. Le Loy 23:47, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
oh, ok, I ask him; see you later and thanks, -jkb- 00:08, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
article accepted --Sebastian Wallroth (talk) 08:50, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Привет, Mortier.Daniel! Считается только связный текст, то есть, все списки, все таблицы, цитаты, сноски, заголовки и комментарии удаляются из подсчёта. Le Loy 23:20, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

Interface Translation Update[edit]

Hi Le Loy, thanks again this year for providing judging tool! As for the interface translation in Japanese, it seems deployed with early stage translation. As a result, "Judge" button is mistranslated. (This is actually the second favor asking to you.) I understand you're busy this time of season, but we appreciate you if you take some time to update this. --Takot (talk) 14:47, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi, good evening, may you cancel the words limit in the Hebrew WAM tool? we didn't asked for that... Ofek Jerassi - talk 21:16, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi Ofek j, it's the global requirement, so the global team has to agree to that. Saileshpat, SuperHamster, Sky Harbor: do you agree to lift the size requirement for this one community? I remember Addis asking me specifically to apply the same requirements everywhere in 2016 and 2017. Le Loy 00:23, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
there's a problem with the words requirement in hebrew... Ofek Jerassi - talk 13:33, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
Ofek j, some projects use character requirement instead: 300 characters per article (Japanese, many Chinese languages and Thai, for instance, use it). Would you like me to switch you to 300 characters? Le Loy 00:14, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
yes please, thank you. Ofek Jerassi - talk 01:12, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi Le Loi, Tamil Wikipedia user Dsesringp tried to add article சானா_மிர் in Tamil Wikipedia WAM tool. He expanded the article by more than 300 words. But he is getting error for the fields 'page created date' and 'page created by'. Please check into this issue and help us. Thanks --Nandhinikandhasamy (talk) 17:45, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
Wikipedia Asian Month is a contest to create new articles, thus in general, expansion of existing articles are not eligible to be counted. So the judging tool checks whether the creation date is after this November 1 or not. The article you mentioned seems created in 2011. —Takot (talk) 00:34, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
Hi Takot. Thanks for your response. But in WAM 2018 event page they mentioned as 'create new content or expand the old articles about Asia except their own country'. So I raised doubt on this issue. Please clarify. --Nandhinikandhasamy (talk) 08:36, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing out, @Nandhinikandhasamy:. I didn't know that description but now confirmed. I do not believe this is a globally-accepted rule, as we have not discussed to change this rule. See sample template and you'll find “newly created by you between November 1 (snip)” Anyway I will reach out other organizers. —Takot (talk) 09:20, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
I confirmed with other organizers that description you mentioned was old one, and not accepted as a commonly recognized rule. I modified that language to avoid further confusions. --Takot (talk) 14:57, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the confirmation @Takot:. I have modified the rules in Tamil Wikipedia event page. --Nandhinikandhasamy (talk) 15:38, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Hi Le Loy. A Japanese user w:ja:User:さえぼー tried to add w:ja:ザアタル. This article has been moved from a user's draft page and later published. As a result, it was declined due to the creation date. I confirmed this article was created after November 1, 2018 and assures it is eligible. Could you add this instead, if you don't mind? --Takot (talk) 14:35, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

Want to be a Part of WAM 2018.[edit]


Dear Le, Would like to inform you that I am from Pakistan here, so may I please submit you the contributions of mine in English? Please clarify that can I submit my entries as an individual or is it necessary to be a part of an organizer, as I want to participate as an individual and so submitting four articles in English. Please clarify me these two confusions.

Please reply.

Regards SB —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Saadullah Bhatti (talk)

WAM 2018[edit]

Hi Le Loi, I am the organizer in hausa Wikipedia, I have been using the wrong fountain tool for the submission since and it wasn't uploading, so I created a submission page to tackle the problem, if that's ok fine, but if we need the fountain tool for that, pls create the fountain tool for our Hausa wiki. Thanks The Living love (talk) 21:24, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

WAM 2018: problem with Fountain[edit]

Hello! I am one of the organizers of the Finnish edition of WAM 2018. We have been collecting our new articles on a local page in fiwiki, and I was trying to enter them into Fountain today. However, I ran into a problem: this article was created at 01:10 AM local time on November 1 (which can be verified through the edit history), but Fountain thinks the time of creation is 11:10 PM on October 31, and so, it does not accept the article. This seems like some sort of a time zone problem (maybe?), could you please look into it? --Lentokonefani (talk) 08:59, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Hi Lentokonefani, usually all the contests are using UTC time. I can manually add these articles into Fountain if you agree to it as a jury member. Le Loy 03:12, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
Yes, please add this: fi:Bhutanin kansalliskirjasto ja -arkisto. It is the only one causing problems. --Lentokonefani (talk) 08:58, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
In addition to the aforementioned fi:Bhutanin kansalliskirjasto ja -arkisto for User:Paju, could you also add fi:Amagasakin junaonnettomuus for me? I created the article yesterday evening but did not have time to add it to Fountain. Now, as WAM has closed, I am no longer able to enter new articles to Fountain. Thank you for your help! --Lentokonefani (talk) 12:00, 1 December 2018 (UTC)
Lentokonefani, Paju, done! Le Loy 00:25, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Problems with Fountain[edit]

Добрый вечер, I found some issues. One of my submissions (陳氏影業) is deleted due to human error. Then the submission is reverted and approved, but since the deletion took place when the judge approved an article I submitted later (魯斯丹·埃芬迪), this is rather against my will since I intentionally put a biography in every three articles. I would like to ask if it's possible to 1) switch the order of submissions (陳氏影業 should be placed between 魯斯丹·埃芬迪 and 泗水 (小說)) and 2) if late submissions (works done on 30th November, but submitted after that) is possible as I created one more article after that. --Spring Roll Conan ( Teahouse | Contributions ) 11:24, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

Unsolved problems that I raised[edit]

See there. Sorry for being impatient, but maybe it is ignored due to several similar-naming sections and being too far from here. Since one of the judges approve the change in order, I thought it's okay to move on (specifically, put 陳氏影業 between 泗水 (小說) and 魯斯丹·埃芬迪) if it doesn't require a full approval from the judges (as allowed in our annual writing contest). Furthermore, the delay has resulted in two works finished in November unable to submit as the order is still against my intention. --Spring Roll Conan ( Teahouse | Contributions ) 08:11, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
