Proposed change to Consensus for a unified approach to bias categories at Category:Antisemitism
Due to your involvement in the 2011 CFD that decided on a unified approach to bias categories, you may be interested in a current proposal to change that approach with regard to the Category:Antisemitism. Dlv999 (talk) 15:29, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
You suggested that the inclusion criteria for massacres of men should be things called gender-based violence. As I note, Jones has built up a database of these gendercides and he and other scholars Call this sort of thing gender-based violence - he claims the hallmark of such events is the separation of men and boys prior to their murder, which happened in all of the events in the category. The bulk of massacres we have articles for, this doesn't happen. Sometimes, a given event is both VAM and VAW, if the surviving females are raped en-masse for example. Are you saying you'd be ok to keep the category provided we update the inclusion criteria and come to agreement on some of the contents? If so it would be great if you consider changing your !vote, I think this is a very useful category for the reader (similar to the massacres of women one) that helps navigate between incidences which share a similar characteristic - eg sex-specific selection for death of non-combatants. FWIW, I've been tweaking the inclusion criteria, take a look at Category:Massacres of men and let me know your thoughts, and if this addresses some of your concerns.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 13:09, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
After an extremely close race, Round 3 is over. 244 points secured a place in Round 4, which is comparable to previous years- 321 was required in 2013, while 243 points were needed in 2012. Pool C's Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Casliber (submissions) finished second overall, claiming three featured articles, including the high-importance Grus (constellation). Third place was Pool B's , whose contributions included featured articles Russian battleship Poltava (1894) and Russian battleship Peresvet. Pool C saw the highest number of participants advance, with six out of eight making it to the next round.
The round saw this year's first featured portal, with Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to 12george1 (submissions) and the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This means that all content types have been claimed this year. Other contributions of note this round include a featured topic on Maya Angelou's autobiographies from Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Sven Manguard (submissions).
The judges would like to remind participants to update submission pages promptly. This means that content can be checked, and allows those following the competition (including those participating) to keep track of scores effectively. This round has seen discussion about various aspects of the WikiCup's rules and procedures. Those interested in the competition can be assured that formal discussions about how next year's competition will work will be opened shortly, and all are welcome to voice their views then. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Religion in Belize
While searching your list of religions for Belize and adding the percentages for the Christian religions I found that the total of all religion percentages totalled well over 100%. Perhaps one of the larger percentages has a typo? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Angkim (talk • contribs) 14:10, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
- @Angkim: The various Protestant religions are broken out into separate percentages. Notice the parentheses around them. Hope that clears things up. Cheers. Kaldari (talk) 07:24, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
Your comment about me
Per your suggestion at the Feminism Project Talk page that I am a men's rights activist, that is incorrect. FWIW, I am an content expert in psychology, with a specialty in the psychology of sex differences. I would appreciate it if in the future you would not refer to me as an MRA. Thanks. Memills (talk) 19:36, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
- @Memills: Thanks for clearing that up. I'm glad to hear that you're not an MRA. My apologies for suggesting that you might be. Kaldari (talk) 20:15, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

- User:HotArticlesBot says it is pulling data from Tim1357's Hot Articles tool on the toolserver. Is this still true? If not, should it be corrected?
- Subscription requests appear to be backlogged all the way back to 2012. Is this correct or should the page be updated? Is there a status report? I'm asking because a member of Wiki Project Anti-war has expressed interest in making a request.
- @Viriditas: The bot no longer relies on Tim1357's Hot Articles tool. It is now completely self-contained and hosted on Tool Labs. Your correct that I haven't updated the subscription requests in ages (or acted on them). I'll try to get things updated this week. Feel free to add a new subscription request for WikiProject Anti-war and I'll look into it. Kaldari (talk) 19:08, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
