44th Chess Olympiad[edit]

Just a note that I've left a comment to Edwininlondon here, but apologies if it would've been better to stay out of it—I didn't intend to cause argument in someone else's FAC nomination. — Bilorv (talk) 10:10, 15 April 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@Bilorv: No problem. You just did what you thought would be useful. After all, removing citations from the intro is a relatively minor thing. I’ll take care of Edwininlondon’s comments in the next few days. Best regards.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 10:26, 15 April 2023 (UTC)[reply]

May 2023[edit]

Information icon I noticed that a message you recently left to a newcomer may have been unduly harsh. Please remember not to bite the newcomers. If you see others making a common mistake, consider politely pointing out what they did wrong and showing them how to correct it. It takes more time, but it helps us retain new editors. Thank you. - Knightoftheswords281 (Talk · Contribs) 13:12, 21 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@Knightoftheswords281: Can you be more specific which message you’re talking about and point out where that particular newcomer complained about unduly harsh message from my side? I’ve been working with newcomers both on-wiki and off-wiki in the Wikimedia movement for 15 years, and you’re the first one out of hundreds people in that time span to approach me with one such remark. Thanks.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 13:23, 21 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]
To be honest, it wasn't too egregious, just a rather snarky reply to the user who nominated the Bakhmut story on ITN

please close this before it turns into unproductive discussion that wastes time. We keep the ongoing item for a reason

. Remember that newcomers (including those who aren't outright new to Wikipedia, but to specific sections of the project [which WP:BITE still applies to]), of which the nominator was in regards to ITN need time to understand the vibes and regulations of certain parts of the project. You probably didn't deserve to be templated and I think I largely did it because of Ouro (talk · contribs)'s much more bitey reply, but still please remember tp be more unde,rstanding to ITN newcomers and the like. Thanks!
(Also, apologies for any grammatical errors, I'm on mobile on a limited schedule). - Knightoftheswords281 (Talk · Contribs) 13:39, 21 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Knightoftheswords281: I entered in an edit conflict with your comment after figuring out what is it about. My vote isn’t addressed to any particular editor—it’s neither a response to other comment nor does it contain any kind of a personal attack. It’s merely an alerting good-faith comment aimed at closing the nomination as soon as possible before we end up in another inane discussion on the Russian invasion of Ukraine. As you might know, there have been at least a dozen of similar nominations while the ongoing item was already posted onto ongoing, which engaged a lot of editors in cheeky discussions, so it was necessary to use an alerting language. Best regards.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 13:49, 21 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Ah, okay. I'd still advocate for being more timid in the future since again, these newcomers don't know of this, but your explanation makes sense. - Knightoftheswords281 (Talk · Contribs) 13:56, 21 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Hiding my comment[edit]

Hello. This is worth taking to ANI. I clearly expressed that I did not support the wording because it did not explicitly attribute the destruction of the dam to Russia. There are several discussions on the article on the destruction of the dam on the false balance that is being given to Russian and Ukrainian claims [1] [2]. This is a valid view endorsed by several other editors. Do NOT ever do this again. Super Ψ Dro 13:01, 8 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@Super Dromaeosaurus: There is no convincing evidence that Russia is responsible for the destruction with mutual accusations from both sides, which is well-documented in the article, so it wasn't possible to attribute the destruction to Russia based on speculations. That being said, your oppose vote was groundless and pointy that could have easily led to a pile-up of unnecessary comments by other editors had it not been hatted. It was pointy because it's completely irrelevant who damaged the dam (Russia, Ukraine or a third party) when the consequences would be the same, but you insisted to make a point that Russia's responsibility should be mentioned in the blurb. If you want to constructively contribute to ITN, you're encouraged to read the guidelines on the top of the page and check some of the recent discussions on the talk page. There have recently been multiple discussions regarding civility and WP:FORUM posts in ITN discussions, and it was widely agreed that hatting or striking comments should be allowed in such cases (see this discussion for example). If you feel inclined to report me at ANI, no-one can stop you from doing it. Best regards.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 13:49, 8 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Russia's responsibility is a topic of discussion both in Wikipedia and in reliable sources. Should have it been discussed at ITN there would have been no problems. I also disagree with this being a groundless view. There's many relevant public figures openly questioning the Kremlin's accusations to Ukraine.
I've rewritten my comment to make it less belligerant-sounding. Directly pointing out the problem to the user might be better than hiding their comment. It would have taken as much time and avoided any conflict. Super Ψ Dro 14:23, 8 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Super Dromaeosaurus: It's groundless because it relies on a speculation that is easily dismissible per WP:CRYSTALBALL. Whether WP:FALSEBALANCE exists or not is something which should be resolved on the article's talk page. ITN discussions are based on what's written in the article, not what one thinks should be written (furthermore, if you thought that the blurb was inaccurate, you could've proposed a new one on your own). As long as the article states that there are disputed claims regarding the perpetrator, your vote is groundless and doesn't objectively add any value to the discussion (you can note that it was referred as to "pointy" by another editor further down in the discussion). You're not the first one to post such a comment in an ITN discussion (we're witnessing people ridiculing the United States and Russia every day) nor the first one who's comment was hatted (at the moment, there's another hatted comment in the discussion on the same nomination, which shows it's a common and useful practice in dynamic and lengthy discussions). Best.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 15:11, 8 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

TFA[edit]

Hi Kiril. I am planning on scheduling 44th Chess Olympiad as the main page TFA on 13 November. As the article is a bit technical, I wondered if you fancied having a first go at a draft blurb? Cheers. Gog the Mild (talk) 21:51, 9 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]
