Marking as final

Hey there - slow down with the final marking. You're confusing the submitters! Do it tomorrow, pls! (most of them got an email from me about it already and are now "whaa..?") Thank you :) -- Phoebe (talk) 21:44, 10 April 2017 (UTC)Reply

@Phoebe: ack, sorry about that. I had wrestled with the markup in that section myself, and seen quite a few broken sections, so thought I'd try to be helpful by either boldly marking, and/or email-nudging, most of the remaining people, just in case the deadline for getting that template-done-correctly was strict. I finished my look-through a couple of hours ago, and wasn't planning on doing any more. Sorry again! Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 21:48, 10 April 2017 (UTC)Reply
Addendum: I'll note I have already gotten 4 replies saying things like "oh, I thought I'd done that, thanks for the reminder". :) Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 21:49, 10 April 2017 (UTC)Reply
Yes! It is helpful and thank you for doing it... most of them haven't *answered* my emails to be fair :) I just got a couple of confused folks. Tomorrow we will wrap it up! -- Phoebe (talk) 21:53, 10 April 2017 (UTC)Reply

Passed deadline

Hi Quiddity. Since we are now definitely past the submission deadline, you can proceed with the closure of the submissions that left open. Best regards. :) --Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 13:48, 12 April 2017 (UTC)Reply

Hi @Kiril Simeonovski:. :) I'm not completely sure what you're suggesting/requesting. Re: My previous run through of the Category:Submission_in_work, I was just doing this of my own initiative, and arguably with the wrong account (I wasn't assigned this as a task -- I just saw a point of likely confusion (with the way the templates were explained and partially enclosed in HTML-comment-markup which many won't know about - e.g this one that I just fixed in 4 ways...) and tried to help resolve the confusion for as many people as I could, before the deadline).
If you would like me to go through the Category:Submission_in_work again, and do something to all them (? replace a template, perhaps with one of Category:Submission_review_templates ?), then I could possibly do that, with my volunteer account, after work this evening. Let me know. Hope that helps! Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 16:35, 12 April 2017 (UTC)Reply
Oh! Now I see the email! Nevermind the above, yup, I can help, but will do so later this evening. :-) Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 16:49, 12 April 2017 (UTC)Reply
