Letting you know[edit]

Information icon Hello. There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you.

Categorization by place[edit]

Well, I don't agree that for most cases, a person is notable for where they are born, it is not defining and should not be done. However I also believe that there are a large number of editors who would not support that as a position and would fight the removal of these categories from people articles. Add to this mess the fact that for some places, the qualify sources don't actually provide the actual place and cases where their mother lived in one place and they came home there from the hospital but since that place did not have a hospital, they are born someplace all. It is all a mess. Vegaswikian (talk) 02:59, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

Well, it is clear some editors fight the removals. Maybe we should try and get a compromise that says if it is clear that the person either never lived in that place or moved away when they were very young, that we will not categorize by it. I think a big issue is, should by place categories try to capture everyone who ever lived in the place, or be limited to those who have a defining connection to the place.John Pack Lambert (talk) 14:34, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
Hi, for info I've closed the withdrawn CfD's as requested but noted in each case that closure is pending an RfC (so no prejudice against renomination post-RFC or if RFC doesn't happen in a reasonable time). Have also posted a pointlessly tortured explanation of my rationale here. - Euryalus (talk) 00:49, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

"Almost all video games have female protagonists" is 100% false, these games are actually rare.

See, for example:

Etc. --Niemti (talk) 16:40, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

The current list (about 850 titles with articles on Wikipedia - out of tens of thousands game articles) is in fact pretty much definitive and there's not much more. I used the lists compiled by others as well as my own knowledge. Also this:

Not quite "so often", no? --Niemti (talk) 17:02, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

I answered you again. And no, characters (doesn't matter if playable or non-playable) are never protagonists unless they're actually protagonists (I mean, pretty obviously so?). --Niemti (talk) 10:11, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Jonathan Del Arco[edit]

There is a close paraphrase issue at Jonathan Del Arco. There appears to be no single editor who might be likely to undertake fixing this; I identified the editor with the most edits in 2012, and 2013; only the four of you, with two edits each met that low hurdle.

I outlined the issue at the talk page, my hope is that one or more of you will undertake to salvage the article.--SPhilbrick(Talk) 00:53, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

"Not-notable for" category removals[edit]

Hi. Can you point to some actual guideline that supports your removal of people from categories they are "not notable" for, such as Category:Jeopardy! contestants? The category system traditionally does not work that way. If you grew up in a place, you are put in the "People from" category for it, regardless of whether you are famous for having grown up there. Same for what university you go to, and so forth. If we go down this route, many many category removals will have to be made. Take John McCain, for instance, which I am the main editor of. I can tell you that besides not being "notable" for being a Jeopardy contestant, he's also not notable for being a Baptists from the United States (he's not very religious) or for being a Commanders of the Order of Ouissam Alaouite (whatever that is) or for having attended Episcopal High School in Alexandria (he moved around a lot) or for his association with the International Republican Institute or for being a National Heroes of Georgia or for being a Recipients of the Air Medal (he's only famous for being shot down, not for the missions before that) or for Recipients of the Legion of Merit or Recipients of the Order of the Cross of Terra Mariana, 1st Class or Recipients of the Order of the Three Stars, 2nd Class or Sons of the American Revolution, among others.

Now some of the categories he really is "notable" for, including the political ones and Naval aviator and Vietnam War prisoners of war. But do you really propose to delete all the others? If so, where is the guideline telling all of us to start this big purge? If not, why pick on just Jeopardy? Wasted Time R (talk) 23:41, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

my impression is that the WP:defining criteria is applied more strictly in practice to jobs vs other things. It's the same reason we don't have hundreds of actors in the waiters category even tho they once did that job.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 03:24, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Gendered categories for actors[edit]

Why are you re-categorizing "actor" pages into "male actors" and "actresses"? Actor is an established and accepted gender-neutral term for that profession. Even the Wikipedia page for "actress" redirects to "actor". I don't see the need for explicitly creating new categories based on gender in this case. Funcrunch (talk) 06:52, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

I actually had read some of the background before you posted it on my talk page. But it is really necessary to have categories as specific and sparsely-populated as Category:Male actors from Fresno, California?? Funcrunch (talk) 20:47, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

Actors, male, Shakespearean[edit]

Hi; in the past month or so, you've created Category:Shakespearean male actors and Category:Male Shakespearean actors. I assume that these are the same thing? If so, which one should be deleted and which one do you want kept? Good Ol’factory (talk) 19:30, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

I emptied the one I didn't think we needed, but I lack a strong view on either form.John Pack Lambert (talk) 20:16, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
OK, I will delete Category:Shakespearean male actors for now. Good Ol’factory (talk) 20:36, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

actors[edit]

FYI, I feel that gendering all actors cats below national level is excessive. I don't have time right now to start a nomination but wanted your thoughts - what is the limit of actors-gendered categories? Can't we have male/female at national level, then keep the rest ungendered?--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 00:15, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

I really don't see that working. The categories have developed in too large a way, and too few of them exist. Anyway, acting is a profession where everyone, in all ways in controlled by gender. Roles are by gender, awards are by gender, and we have consistently seen having the gender split upheld at all levels.John Pack Lambert (talk) 02:03, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
If this were to be done, Obi-Wan Kenobi, it would involve thousands and thousands of articles covering male actors and actresses around the world. I think it would need to be a decision based on a RFC. At the least, it should involve an active discussion with regulars at Wikipedia:WikiProject Actors and Filmmakers. Those categories are most relevant to Editors who work on creating and maintaining actor bios and shouldn't be drastically changed without consultation from the Editors most impacted (or a deleted category will just continually be recreated). Liz Read! Talk! 16:11, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
Ok, then I'll start the discussion there. I think the whole thing smacks of overcategorization. Yes, gender is important for acting, but it doesn't mean that every single actor category should thus be gendered. We can easily set up simple category intersection at the top of any relevant pages to capture "nationality + actor + specific actor cat" + "nationality + actor + gender". --Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 16:54, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Categorizing women by occupation[edit]

Hi, John. You've written: "In the past I have mistakenly categorized people into only gender categories. I have tried to remedy this situation recently, such as by making sure that all the people in Category:American female film directors were also in Category:American film directors."

Was there any discussion about this? If this is to be done in this way, then I'm willing to recategorise all the Slovene women in the similar way. Thank you. --Eleassar my talk 08:21, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

tp stalker - yes, it was a massive forest fire that consumed at least a month of wiki-time - see American women novelists and associated cfds but it spread all over the wiki. In general women (or anyone) should never be ghettoized - to avoid this you can use the algorithm I developed which is linked on my user page.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 13:54, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Sergio Franchi[edit]

Hi John. Have you gotten a bee in your bonnet about recategorizing people? You have edited several categories on the Sergio Franchi page (including one which does not exist) from American to Italian. Because Sergio Franchi became a naturalized American in 1972, I believe that his initial categories were more correct. He became an AMERICAN 1972. I am reverting your edits.

Descent, Expatriates, and Emigrants[edit]

As you seem to be an active user when it comes to categorization, I have a question regarding these diaspora categories. I was wondering if you could guide me how to categorise the right people into such categories. For example, there are three categories for Pakistani Americans: Category:American people of Pakistani descent, Category:Pakistani emigrants to the United States and Category:Pakistani expatriates in the United States. As I tend to spend a lot of time categoring, could you briefly explain to me the difference between these three categories and which person goes where? For example, which category does a US-born American citizen of Pakistani ancestry go? In which category does a Pakistani-born naturalised American citizen go? And in which category does a Pakistani citizen living in the U.S. go (I would say the expatriate category, but just to get the record right..)?.. Mar4d (talk) 15:45, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Hello, have you decided what to do with this category: Category:American men's basketball players? It's just been sitting there.Hoops gza (talk) 19:39, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

It needs to be expanded. Unless people want to eliminate the women's category as well.John Pack Lambert (talk) 20:57, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

We're talking about a gigantic category project here, thousands of articles. Perhaps it would be wise to do men's basketball players by state instead?Hoops gza (talk) 22:54, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

We have an entirely separate category tree for the various colleges at which both men (and women) played basketball. Jabari Parker is not a basketball player from North Carolina, he is from Illinois. He is also in Category:Duke Blue Devils men's basketball players. Michael Jordan is not from New York nor from Illinois, he is from North Carolina. By state would be pretty manageable, as we already have a "Basketball players by state" category tree.Hoops gza (talk) 22:25, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Where someone is from is more complex than you seem to think. Also, if we are going to mix basketball players and location, why not where they actually play?John Pack Lambert (talk) 22:46, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Dail Jones[edit]

Just another question on how to categorise someone who is born in a different country and lives there for a long time, but never actually becomes a citizen of the host country. Any clue on how to categorise Dail Jones? He was born in 1944 in Karachi, British India and lived there till 1959 (well after Karachi became part of Pakistan) before leaving for New Zealand. Is the Category:New Zealand expatriates in Pakistan fine or should he be in Category:New Zealand emigrants to Pakistan? I am a bit confused as long-term residents are meant to go into the emigrants cat, but technically, he never really migrated to Pakistan, instead was just born there and spent childhood there.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Ambassador categories[edit]

A quick question on categorisation of ambassadors/diplomats. Should non-resident ambassadors (i.e. accredited ambassadors) have their own category? For example, the Afghan ambassador to U.S. also serves as the accredited ambassador to Colombia and for that reason, the Category:Ambassadors of Afghanistan to Colombia exists. I have seen dozens of more categories like this one on non-resident ambassadors. I am just wondering if such categories should exist or not, because technically, accredited ambassadors/diplomats are not like resident ambassadors. Mar4d (talk) 09:33, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Camilla Cobb, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page John W. Young (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles.

WP:OUTING[edit]

Please be careful about allegations, I removed your latest addition to WP:ANI and used revdelete to hide your edit. Whether true or not, we don't disclose private information that a person has not volunteered themselves, and often people can be blocked for doing so. -- Atama 00:06, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Stacy Blackman help[edit]

Thanks for your Neutral vote at Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Stacy_Blackman. I still don't understand why it was deleted, but was wondering if you could help me edit it so that it addresses your concern: "we really need to cut the fluff about all the profiles she has received in various magazines". I thought that would be important for notability. I placed an archive at User:Artfog/Stacy_Blackman. Thanks —Artfog (talk) 19:16, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

About the American Theatre Hall of Fame inductees category...[edit]

Hi there. I saw your suggestion about deleting the American Theatre Hall of Fame inductees category (instead of changing the spelling of "theatre" to T-H-E-A-T-E-R). Do you propose creating a list of Theater Hall of Fame inductees page? Let me know what you think, and maybe I can help. Mr. Brain (talk) 02:49, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Your AFD nomination for Margret Bird[edit]

Hello JPL. I think something has gone wonky with this AFD. The individual page for the AFD looks just fine Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Margaret Bird. But when I was looking at the March 15 recap page I noticed it just below this entry Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Log/2014 March 15#Helen Marie Grant all on its lonesome without a section header or any of the info that is on the separate AFD. I refreshed my cache in case it was my computer then I poked around a little but I could not find any way to fix it. I thought I would let you know so that you can try a straighten things out. Cheers. MarnetteD | Talk 04:47, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Your opinion please...[edit]

Since you weighed in at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mohammed Hameeduddin I felt the nominator lapsed from compliance with WP:BEFORE, and I considerably expanded Mohammed_Hameeduddin.

I know a lot of AFD regulars don't revisit articles, or discussions, after they first left an opinion. If you noticed the expansion, and it didn't alter your delete opinion, I'd be grateful for a brief note, saying so.
