Categories and redirects[edit]


Template talk:R from fictional character#Two auto-populated categories

By the way, the latter is one of the 72 subcats in the former. They are siblings, too, and two of only three! subcats in Category:Fiction-based redirects to list entries.

Do we really have only 10 redirects from fictional places? (Template {{R from fictional place}} has been transcluded only 10 times, so that the auto-populated cat Redirects from fictional places contains only 10 pages.) Anyway, that cat should be another subcat in Category:Fiction-based redirects to list entries, I believe, as the latter is not really about lists.

Middle-earth stand apart from unique in our coverage of fiction? Perhaps not uniquely, as "Anime and manga" and "Comics" may have similar status; see eg Redirects by topic. --P64 (talk) 17:08, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Categorization#Clarification needed

The software doesn't provide any special tools for informing readers that some incoming redirects are substantial, or displaying categories in which those redirects have been placed. Nor have we developed any equivalent practices using the general tools that are available --effective handmade links to those redirects. So the substantial categorization of redirects does not function for upward navigation.
For instance, the redirect Janet Ahlberg is in cats British children's book illustrators and Kate Greenaway Medal winners. Our article about her, Janet and Allan Ahlberg, is not in those categories, nor does it provide any related notice, much less provide wikilinks. Editors as well as readers inevitably stumble; such articles are likely to be placed in categories that duplicate their incoming redirects, and deleted from those categories, by successive editors. (At the moment Janet and Allan Ahlberg is in her 1944 births and 1994 deaths categories. It is in the writers category, correctly by all accounts because she and he wrote separately, and also jointly.)

One vote cast on behalf of online poll[edit]

National Baseball Hall of Fame

The sports website Deadspin announced in November that "We'd Like to Buy Your Vote"—that is, to arrange for eligible writers to cast their ballots on behalf of a poll it would conduct online.[1] Such an arrangement was completed with one voter, Miami Herald columnist and ESPN radio and TV host Dan Le Batard, who remained anonymous until the official results of the election were announced in January. In exchange for a cash donation to charity, he completed his ballot according to the collective "vote" of those who participated in the December poll at Deadspin.[2] One day after the website revealed "our voter" and published his statement, on January 9 the BBWAA announced that it had suspended Le Batard for one year and had permanently revoked his eligibility to vote for the Hall of Fame.[3] ESPN ombudsman Robert Lipsyte reviewed the "caper" one week later.[4]

Phoenix books notes[edit]

0. Talk:Sean O'Hagan (journalist)#Phoenix Books

1. Talk: The End of Time#Publication data

draft reply 2014-04-14

Regarding the English-language eds, I agree except that we should give both subtitles even if we learn that one was not first.
Phoenix generally publishes paperback editions Weidenfeld & Nicolson Ltd books, where WN was independent to 1991 and constituted the core of The Orion Publishing Group --or core of its backlist, books in progress, ed. staff, established writers-- from its establishment (presumably under some legal name that begins 'Orion') in 1991 --subsequently under Hachette and Lagardère SCA.
I don't yet see that we need a page for the Phoenix (British imprint), except one or more redirects to Weidenfeld & Nicolson, Orion Publishing Group, maybe elsewhere too.
For what's worth, template {{Lagardère}} now displays pagenmames that include four steps down -- Lagardère Group / Hachette (publisher) / Orion Publishing Group / Weidenfeld & Nicolson -- not now down to Phoenix. --and the word 'Phoenix' now appears only three and four steps down, in the two pages that the preceding paragraph links directly.
The expansion of our one-line Orion-Phoenix stub (version Oct 2010) two years ago ([ Jun 2010 diffs) was unfortunate. As that Phoenix Books is not related, the Stub should have been overwritten. Also as one of the four listed books was a paperback reissue by Orion-Phoenix rather than a Phoenix Books publication.
some pages whose interrelation, and whose use in piped links, is troubling: Little, Brown and Company; Little, Brown Book Group; Hachette (publisher)

NEED revive categories such as Category:Cincinnati Red Stockings

R abbreviation, initialism, acronym[edit]

Long to short

{{Redr|long}} -- R from long name (7049) <== {R long} (278) -- < 200 articles inclg dozens from my yesterday work

whose incoming redirects include Template:R to abbreviated name Template:R to abbreviated title

Category:Redirects to initialisms (78/ 57)

{{R to initialism}} <== {{R to initials}} (7/ 0 articles) {{R to abbreviation}} (41/ 3 articles)
those three remainders should be "difficult cases" --BNC connector, BMRB Limited, EX-IC
other difficult cases: NYCB 2008, XBMC

My experience suggest to me that the two redirects should not be used and their target should be {R from long name}, ie {Redr|long}.

Short targets should not include Wikipeditor abbreviations, a type of neologism. But most short-name source pages (below) may be editorial shortcuts.

Short to long

{{Redr|short}} -- R from short name (10871) <== {R short} (275)

incoming redirects include Template:R abbreviation Template:R from abbreviated name Template:R from abbreviated title

Category:Redirects from initialisms (11035) + 251 + 121

{{R from initialism}} <== {{R from initials}} (266) {{R from abbreviation}} (9354)

There are dozens of template redirects from shorter and longer versions of those three template names.[21] For example there are 3, 24, 14, 73 uses of R from ab, abb, abbr, abbrev; 0, 0, 2 uses of R from ii, in, init.

2014-03-08 --much work on above, needs reconstruction

should ask others about detail scope of initialism

Acronym v initialism

Talk: British literature (quote paragraph two) Literature in the Celtic languages of the islands is the oldest surviving vernacular literature in Europe.

This needs work. First, the linked article gives no sources, neither References nor External links (tagged in 2006; little changed since 2007 coverage of the Phillippines). It explains vernacular as the speech of the common people and asserts, "In the European tradition, this effectively means literature not written in Latin." --without any explanation why or any statement that "the European tradition" means Europe as a post-classical culture rather than a territory. --or whatever reason we have for excluding earlier Mediterranean civilizations where ancient languages were vernacular (pardon the expression). Lacking a valuable target article, the meaning of the term needs explanation here or (probably better) this article should say what it means without a technical term.

CATEGORY SPACING If I understand correctly this editor has recently revised 3000 articles partly/wholly to tweak spaces in the category section.[22]

I have wondered, and recently asked in article Talk, whether it makes sense [a] to begin with section heading "Current or latest rendition" because it is timelessly fitting or [b] to revise headings back and forth between "Current" and "Latest" during the cycle or [c] use to sections "Current" and "Latest" that expand and contract out of phase during the cycle.
I detest all three so I am inclined to suggest that we choose either "Current" or "Latest"

(SENDAK) received one of two inaugural Astrid Lindgren Memorial Awards in 2003, recognizing his career contribution to "children's and young adult literature in the broadest sense". The citation called him "the modern picture-book's portal figure" and the presentation credited Where the Wild Things Are with "all at once [revolutionizing] the entire picture-book narrative ... thematically, aesthetically, and psychologically."[17]

In 2005 PULLMAN won the biggest prize in children's literature, the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award from the Swedish Arts Council, recognising his career contribution to "children's and young adult literature in the broadest sense". According to the presentation, "Pullman radically injects new life into fantasy by introducing a variety of alternative worlds and by allowing good and evil to become ambiguous." In every genre, "he combines storytelling and psychological insight of the highest order."[11]

the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children


The artist must be a US citizen or resident and the illustrations must be original to the book, which must be published first or simultaneously in the US in English during the preceding year.


A picture book provides "a visual experience. A picture book has a collective unity of story-line, theme, or concept, developed through the series of pictures" that constitute the book. Picture books intended for any audience up to age 14 should be considered.


"for distinguished illustrations in a picture book and for excellence of pictorial presentation for children". The book must be self-contained, independent of other media for its enjoyment. Components other than illustration should be considered as they bear on effectiveness as a children's picture book.

Newbery (and Caldecott?)[edit]

Melcher moved to New York in 1918 as co-editor of Publisher's Weekly (R. R. Bowker). He was then secretary of the national association. and the job made him a liaison between publishers, booksellers, and librarians. He co-founded Children's Book Week, an annual affair of those three groups beginning 1919. His first American Library Association annual conference was in June 1921, as the publisher representative on a Children's Book Week panel that met on the first day. Afterward he conceived the annual award for children's literature as ... and asked to make an unscheduled reappearance on the program for the Children's Section during the next day's session.

The goals were to foster production of high quality American children's books and to grow the ALA Children's Section. --attract children's librarians to join the section (pay dues) and attend the annual ALA conference.

Melcher guessed in writing to the ALA section chair fall 1921 that only about half a dozen books would be considered. --something to be changed

The token should show "genius in the service of children

Who did win the award? In the 1920s, eight men. Some were born in Europe and some wrote stories with WWI foundations.

1921 van Loon, NE, immig, prominent in USA
1922 Lofting, EN, immig, Irish Guards, Dr. Dolittle inspired by the fate of horses and mules in the war
1923 Hawes, US --sea stories
1924 Finger, US, Cape Horn/Patagonia folk tales

{WP Children's lit} IMPORTANCE

62 pages are currently rated High-importance by WP Children's literature. Here is a complete distribution of their numbers by "class", in descending order by quality with other classes at the end. Selected subtotals given at the left margin. For example, the number of B-class articles is 12 and the number in classes B and above is 21.

"Young Adult Literature (YA Lit)" is a redirect to "Young-adult fiction"; both are rated Start/Top. There may be other redirects duplication in these lists.

Why are several articles named? Judging quickly and usually by article names alone, which is errorprone, I have selected every article that is not about a particular book, series, or periodical, nor about a particular author, nor about a fictional universe, character, etc.

(I would have listed any biography of a scholar, editor, or publisher who is not also considered a prominent author such as Brothers Grimm. --but only if I recognized such a person by name, and I don't know enough for that. In effect I have assumed that every biographical subject unknown to me is a children's book author or illustrator or a fictional character.)

What's remarkable about this report? First, the articles on children's literature history, types, organizations, awards, and so on, are rather poorly developed in contrast to the articles on particular authors &c, books &c, characters &c. Only two of 21 articles graded B and above are about the field or industry rather than the particulars that have fans. Only 4 of 35 graded C and above. But 12 of 23 starts and stubs. Even for those articles we recognize to be Top-importance, this shows, either we don't work much on these field articles or they are much more difficult to produce.

Second, those 16 "field" articles that we label Top-importance are a quirky selection. For awards we have Carnegie, Caldecott, and Batchelder (plus Newbery mis-classified as a List). Skimming the 321 High-importance article names, I find only the Blue Peter Book Award. Somehow Mildred Batchelder and Blue Peter (awards) have attained heights unknown to their peers.

The list of 321 High-importance articles shows the same two remarkable characteristics but far more extremely. Only 14 of those articles are about the field (including particular awards, organizations, publishers) rather than a particular author, book, character, etc. 20% of all but none of the 14 field articles is graded B or better; 40% of all but only 1 of the 14 field articles (Anthropomorphism) is graded C or better.

One particular award is rated High-importance, Blue Peter Book Award. One organization, CILIP. One role, Children's Laureate. Those three are British. One publisher, Random House. One imprint, Beginner Books of Random House. Those are American.

The nine others are: Anthropomorphism (C); Gay male teen fiction, Hornbook, Penny dreadful, Young-adult-fiction awards (Start); Children's non-fiction literature, Cumulative tale, Homosexuality in children's literature, Latino children's literature (Stub)

Picture book is unassessed; I tagged it only this week. Toy book is doubly under-rated Start/Low. Pop-up book (movable book) is rated Start/Mid. Alphabet book is Start/High. School story is C/Mid. Juvenile series is a Category: Juvenile series without a main article. Book series is not tagged by any wikiproject. Comic book is tagged only by Magazines and Comics. Graphic novel is tagged only by Comics. Comics is tagged by Comics, Comedy, and Visual Arts. Fable is tagged only by Novels(!?).

(Categories are not tagged by this project, or not graded.)
