At Talk:List_of_active_coal-fired_power_stations_in_Turkey#Keeping_this_list_in_step_with_other_articles_and_lists I propose that if a list exists in a non-English Wikipedia the corresponding English list should be allowed to use Wikidata for its tables.

Your comments there would be welcome.


Chidgk1 (talk) 06:00, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

Along these lines. If the main page doesn't use Wikidata is there a place where we can place the corresponding Wikidata list for reference at least? It would be good to have a standard practice here. Maybe on the talk page? Gettinwikiwidit (talk) 02:59, 12 December 2020 (UTC)

Edit war on List of My Hero Academia characters

Most of the descriptions below each characters' names have been removed, and the page has been protected indefinitely for "repeated insertions of unsourced content", despite similar content being on every character list I could find. I think this is needed of more opinions than just me and the other party member. (talk) 13:19, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

I’d like to request for more input again, as the edit war has restarted. Unnamed anon (talk) 15:00, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

New template: Dynamic list editnotice

As anyone who's ever edited a lot around dynamic lists is aware, they are uniquely a magnet for e.g. redlinked pages of subjects very clearly not notable. I've created an editnotice (i.e. notice that appears in the edit window when you are editing a page, NOT when you're just reading it), {{Dynamic list editnotice}}, that I envision might be used at pages like List of Dartmouth College alumni, where it would display like this:

See the template documentation for customization options. This would be as a complement to the non-editnotice {{Dynamic list}} that already appears at such pages, just in the body. What do you all think? {{u|Sdkb}}talk 10:04, 17 August 2020 (UTC)

I noticed after I posted this that there are actually a few (quite hidden) templates that exist for specialized instance of dynamic lists, such as Template:Alumni edit notice, which is very widely used[sarcasm] on all of four pages. I may turn it into a wrapper if there are no objections. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 23:35, 17 August 2020 (UTC)

List of TEDx conferences

Anyone have any ideas about what to do with this list? At present, it's largely a directory of non-notable, self-organized conferences sourced only to, Facebook, and YouTube. Some of the individual conferences with their own articles might be notable, but the vast majority do not seem to be. I'd stubbify it myself but as that would likely be a massive change I wanted to seek input from others first. AleatoryPonderings (talk) 14:56, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Top importance designation?

I was perusing the list of top-importance articles and thought you'd want to reevaluate just a few. I think both 2018 in baseball and List of tallest buildings in India wound up with "top" designation because someone added the WikiProject Lists to the Talk pages and copied the code from the line above (where "top" was appropriate, such as WikiProject Baseball and WikiProject Skyscrapers). If this happened to these two, the same error could have happened to other articles. And there's only 32 in that category, so it's not a big job. Since I'm not a regular participant of this wikiproject, I thought I'd leave a message rather than re-evaluating/changing the designations myself. Normal Op (talk) 18:05, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

Importance ratings are notoriously unreliable. Feel free to change them yourself—it'll almost surely be an improvement. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 18:14, 2 September 2020 (UTC)
LOL, Okay. I didn't want to step on anyone's toes if there was a designated (or self-designated) person going around classifying these. Normal Op (talk) 19:52, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

RfC regarding the content of a list

See Talk:List of last words#RfC: Should only notable/famous last words be listed?. Clarityfiend (talk) 06:56, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

Are lists of people by nationality worthwhile, especially regarding awards?

The argument has been made in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of countries by number of Fields Medalists (2nd nomination) that, with regards to an academic career award in mathematics, that the ascription of nationality is unclear and so often the ascriptions here involve original research.

Sometimes these kinds of list can appeal to third-party sources for their ranking; e.g. List of countries by Nobel laureates per capita uses a ranking put together by the BBC. Even in these cases, given there are non-obvious criteria and special case reasoning needed to produce these list, these should count as primary sources, so reliance on a single such source for a ranking is problematic.

I think there's also a general question about the reliability of lists of people by nationality. Kurt Gödel is on List of Austrians and List of Czechs: cases can be made for inclusion or exclusion from either list and the lead of the article by an old consensus does not give his nationality.

Does the interest in these lists exceed the issue regarding reliability? — Charles Stewart (talk) 08:46, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

Clearing the WP International Relations backlog and need help on lists of ministers and diplomats, etc.

Hi! I am clearing the WPIR backlog on page rating and need advice from this project. Specifically, there are many lists of ambassadors, etc., that are also descriptions of the post. So, List of ambassadors of the United States to China is actually a description page (probably Start class) with lists. But, it is not in and of itself a list. The case is less clear on pages like List of ambassadors of Iceland to France, but I would argue this is a Stub description page with a list. What I would like to do is to rename these pages, i.e., to Ambassador of the United States to China. In fact, I have done this for one page, renaming List of Ministers of Foreign Affairs (Portugal) to [Ministers of Foreign Affairs (Portugal)]], although this should probably be Minister of Foreign Affairs (Portugal) (i.e., without the 's'). Any advice? Johncdraper (talk) 15:40, 20 September 2020 (UTC) Add: Okay, so Minister for Foreign Affairs (Australia), for example, is rated a description page (Start level), with lists. It is categorized under both Ministers and Lists. Johncdraper (talk) 16:52, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Inclusion criteria/verification for List of time travel works of fiction

It seems we don't know how many lists there are on Wikipedia total

Based on FLs, this project has only tagged about half of them. I recently asked for a total count based on categories at Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)/Archive 184#Subcategory count, but no one replied with a way to do it. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 20:23, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

Nomination of List of U.S. state constitutional amendments banning same-sex unions by type for removal from FL-Class

This is a formality as the list was already merged with another article and is a redirect now. Yet, I will leave the required message:

I have nominated List of U.S. state constitutional amendments banning same-sex unions by type for featured list removal here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets the featured list criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks; editors may declare to "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gehenna1510 (talkcontribs) 01:45, 29 September 2020 (UTC)

Discussion needed

An IP has decided to remove the redirect for List of lighthouses in Hong Kong, and made a few minor category changes. It is my understanding that this project arrived at a consensus to redirect that article to List of lighthouses in China. Hopefully, you can get this worked out because the IP is edit warring to remove the redirect and create a new article and then move it to a hashtag name. See the move request in this version.

List of lighthouses open discussion

Talk:List_of_lighthouses_in_China#Discussion_to_split_Lighthouses_of_Hong_Kong_and_Lighthouses_of_Macau_into_their_own_separate_articles. Members of this project are invited to participate in the discussion. Atsme 💬 📧 15:54, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

Calling it a discussion seems a bit premature right now, as I only saw that sections had been set-up for editors to express their opinions. As such, I've requested context for the situation and arguments for/against. DonIago (talk) 15:59, 19 December 2020 (UTC)
The discussion is about a proposed split and it is neutrally worded. There are tags in the subsection on the list subsections which explain why a discussion is needed. The rest is simply common sense; i.e. a split was proposed - either approve or oppose and give your reasons. Atsme 💬 📧 20:23, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

New media art journals

I came across this article via WP:THQ#Another question to the teahouse. I did some very basic cleanup, but I'm not sure what else can be done to WP:OVERCOME the many issue it has and avoid deletion, but perhaps someone from this WikiProject has some suggestions. The article has kind of a WP:SAL feel to it; so, I figured I ask about it here. -- Marchjuly (talk) 07:56, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

Some questions

Where here is the place to but an article to be assed? Also, can you review my article( Also can a draft become a level of importance(e.g. high, medium, low) or a class level(e.g. featured, good, A-Class, B-Class, C-Class)? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:47, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

List of most-retweeted tweets

Is #25 on this list really considered a cash giveaway or prize? Someone marked it as such today and while I don't believe it's a major change, I don't think it's correct either. To the best of my knowledge, a charity fundraiser is surely different but I wanted to get clarification for my own understanding moving forward on WP. -- Carlobunnie (talk) 18:11, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
