WikiProject Yorkshire Newsletter - March 2020
Thanks to the contributions of our many members and supporters, WP:YORKS has become a leading local British WikiProject in terms of the total number of articles supported (up from 15,346 last month to 15,404 on 29 February 2020). In the area of GAs WP:YORKS at 157 is ahead of WP:GM who have 87. WP:GM has the lead in FAs at 68 out of a total number of 4,472 articles.
Currently we have fifty two Yorkshire featured articles:
The number has been kept deliberately low to give us a fighting chance of improving them to at least GA status, also so we can concentrate our efforts on these first.
The Great Britain and Ireland Destubathon is running in March, sign up if you can help, there's nearly $500 worth of book prizes available so if anybody needs books for other topics this might help you out! The project has 5,550 articles currently tagged as sub-class, members could join in the drive and help reduce this number by expanding them up to at least start-class. We are not looking to merge articles but to expand them. In the process you may be in for a prize.
WikiProject Yorkshire Collaboration of the Month Project
The March 2020 articles selected below are an editor choice as there were no further suggestions from the project talk page.
The project is subscribed to a clean-up listing which lists articles tagged with various clean-up tags that need attention. The listing is refreshed by a bot on a regular basis.
Monitoring is essential Use the watchlist to keep an eye on changes to the project's articles so that vandalism and spamming can be removed as quickly as possible.
Moves Please be careful when performing articles moves and ensure that you also move all the talk sub-pages and update any image fair use rational. Otherwise the archives, to-do lists, assessment comments and GA reviews get lost and the image may be deleted as it has an incorrect FUR. You will also have to check that the Commons link is set correctly.
Comments, questions and suggestions about this, or any, issue of the newsletter are always welcome and can be made by pressing the feedback button below...
@L1amw90:just treat the OT columns as if it was a draw between the two clubs but one team gets a winning draw, the other a losing draw. What you have done is to give Oldham a win AND a winning draw, and Batley a loss AND a losing draw. Nthep (talk) 10:19, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
Now the template has been changed just give a win to the team that wins after gp and a loss to the other team but add one to the |adjust_points parameter for the losing team. Only use the draws column if gp doesn't settle it. Nthep (talk) 17:40, 5 March 2020 (UTC)
Following an RfC, the blocking policy was changed to state that sysops must not undo or alter CheckUser or Oversight blocks, rather than should not.
A request for comment confirmed that sandboxes of established but inactive editors may not be blanked due solely to inactivity.
Following a discussion, Twinkle's default CSD behavior will soon change, most likely this week. After the change, Twinkle will default to "tagging mode" if there is no CSD tag present, and default to "deletion mode" if there is a CSD tag present. You will be able to always default to "deletion mode" (the current behavior) using your Twinkle preferences.
Reference  is coming up as "not found on this server". Is the url correct? Mjroots (talk) 04:22, 5 March 2020 (UTC)
@Mjroots: I'd forgotten that with the publication of the fifth edition of Quick that the supplements to the 4th edition had been incorporated into the 5th edition. Tidy up time! Nthep (talk) 12:46, 5 March 2020 (UTC)
You can feel free to discard this message, however I was wondering if you'd like to collaborate on making a list of various national team's records (like List of Australia national rugby league team records) and international rivalry pages (like New Zealand vs Tonga in rugby league)?
