Possible Bluegrass Wikiproject[edit]

Hi! This is very useful template. There are a number of red links, though. I'm trying to drum up interest in creating a Wikiproject or task force to improve the hundreds of bluegrass articles on Wikipedia. Anyone interested please leave me a message at: User talk:Anne Delong/Bluegrass Topics Those red links in the template would make good task for such a group. I've started gathering some material at: User:Anne Delong/Bluegrass Topics. In the mean time, I'll be adding this template to pages that I come across. Thanks for creating it.—Anne Delong (talk) 23:19, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Too many redlinks[edit]

As far as I know, a template like this (that isn't exhaustive, as say an NBA team's roster) usually shouldn't have redlinks. Especially so in a category called "notable festivals" (notability having a specific meaning on Wikipedia). I don't know enough about bluegrass to know if those festivals pass notability criteria but just haven't been created yet or if they should be removed (or both)? --— Rhododendrites talk \\ 15:36, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Hello, Rhododendrites. I'm afraid it's a combination of both problems. I fixed one red link which just had the wrong title, but the others are a mixed bag. I have most of them on my list for improvement/creation. There are several on the list that are definitely notable; the others need investigation. There don't seem to be many people interested in working on articles about bluegrass. I started out working in this area and then became so busy rescuing old AfC articles that I have been neglecting it. I agree about the redlinks; what if we just comment out the ones that don't exist yet, so that anyone adding a new one will see them and maybe create them? —Anne Delong (talk) 18:21, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
@Anne Delong: that sounds like a perfectly good approach to me. Do you want to do that or should I? (Presuming nobody else weighs in to disagree) --— Rhododendrites talk \\ 18:26, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
Rhododendrites, I have gone ahead and done it. If anyone objects, I will happily be reverted. —Anne Delong (talk) 18:39, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
