Requests for Comment


Talk:Zim Integrated Shipping Services

There has been extensive edit warring over a section that some editors are seeking to add, current titled "Target of Blockades." This relates to recent efforts by pro-Palestinian activists to prevent unloading of Zim shipping at ports in the United States.
  1. Does this material deserve a separate section [1], and is this section fair, accurate and neutral?
  2. Should it be integrated into the History section, such as at [2]
  3. Should it be omitted entirely?

--Figureofnine (talkcontribs) 17:15, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Scientific opinion on climate change

The article so far has a small section about "policy matters" which should be expanded based on secondary sources. The IPCC and other associations attempt to use various science consensus oriented synthesis reports to provide, among others, the IPCC Summary for Policymakers is the basic rationale for the credentials menioned at length in the article. There is dispute about the insertion of social science topics at the talk page however. Therefore the RFC. Serten (talk) 18:01, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Gaza flotilla raid

Should the following content be kept in this article?

It was later found that the Mavi Marmara carried no humanitarian supplies, and that elements within the Turkish government had paid 50 mercenaries to take part,[1] and that seven of those who had died in the raid had expressed to their families a desire to have a "martyr`s death".[2]

  • Yes, the fact that this vessel carried no cargo, and had 50 paid mercenaries aboard, as well as the fact that some of these "activists" wanted a martyrs death is notable and needs to be here. Darkness Shines (talk) 14:59, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Ice Bucket Challenge

Question for comment: Should the following paragraph, or something similar, be included in this article?
The Washington Post reported that twenty-six governors of U.S. states have completed the challenge; one (Governor Peter Shumlin of Vermont) performed the challenge in a suit.[1] A significant number of members of Congress publicized their participation in the challenge, including at least sixteen who had voted in favor of the Budget Control Act of 2011, which provided for sequestration that cut $1.55 billion in funding for the National Institutes of Health, which conducts medical research.[2][3][4][5][6] Commentators and medical researchers wrote that the Challenge underscored the politics and policy of medical research, especially the issue of declining public funding for medical research.[7][8][9]

Various arguments are outlined in the section above.

  • Yes, that governors and congresspeople participated, No on the political opinionizing and pointy extrapolations. This article isn't about politics, although if specific opinions from specific journalists are quoted by name and by publication, those could merit mention. Softlavender (talk) 23:56, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Revolutionary Communist Party, USA

Does this edit [3] have consensus to be used in this article? 21:14, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Turkish presidential election, 2014

Should the infobox and map colour denoting Presidential candidate Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu be red or blue? (Arguments for/against in the "Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu's colour" two sections above this one). T.C. Ataturkiye (talk) 23:22, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Zeitgeist: The Movie

Is this section of the article detailing Jared Loughner's reported interest in the film unduly long and in need of shortening?

Comments

  • Yes As it stands, the only source we have in the section that devotes more than three sentences to any connection between the movie and Loughner is a single opinion piece by a partisan commentator trying to connect the movie to the right-wing. I believe a single paragraph with a summary of the allegations about the film's influence on Loughner and Joseph's response is sufficient.--The Devil's Advocate tlk. cntrb. 23:17, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Government of Louisville, Kentucky

Government of Louisville, KentuckyLouisville Metro – Per WP:CONCISE and WP:COMMON name.

There is the minor issue that some users will be searching for the Louisville (lower-case) metro area, but that can be addressed in a hatnote pointing at Neighborhoods of Louisville, Kentucky. All of the incoming links to the existing Louisville Metro redirect are looking for this governmental page, though, and it is the entity's proper name, as given in the first line of the current article. — LlywelynII 02:55, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:September 11 attacks

Should the "Effects" chapter contain a sub-section about conspiracy theories? Smitty121981 (talk) 01:21, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Republican Party (United States)

Should the article include the names of prominent Republicans subsequent to 1976 who have been openly critical of the GOP because they believe the Party leadership's views are too far to the right? If so, how should they be described? EllenCT (talk) 05:10, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:2014 Israeli raids on UNRWA schools

Should or shouldn't the article 2014 Israeli raids on UNRWA schools contain the section Other UNRWA incidents? Kingsindian (talk) 20:26, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Languages of Afghanistan

The Afghanistan page lists the official languages as Pashto and Dari, and the Dari (Persian dialect) page states that "Dari is the official name for the Persian language in Afghanistan". So why is Dari continually being replaced by Persian on this page? And why is Hazaragi also being removed as a regional language? Aristophanes68 (talk) 15:15, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Whitehouse Institute of Design

This is already an informal RfC. As suggested below, it may be helpful to some editors to make it more formal, so that they receive a notification on their talk page. Always nice to get something in the mail, and we may bring more to the party.

Briefly, the Whitehouse Institute of Design is a small private educational institution. The short article (7 lines and an infobox) lasted from November 2012 to May 2014 before an allegation arose that the daughter of then Opposition Leader (now Prime Minister) Tony Abbott had received a $60 000 scholarship which he had failed to declare on his parliamentary register of interests. School staff issued statements that the scholarship was awarded to Frances Abbott on merit. Such scholarships are not seen as gifts and are not required to be registered.

Most of the article now deals with allegations made against one student. Drmies commenced discussion below on the issue of weight. Comments on how to handle the coverage of this issue in this article are invited. --Pete (talk) 00:12, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Electronic harassment

I believe the current article, the way it is, to be inconsistent with Project_MKUltra. Primarly because no one did anything the last 4 years[4], I've attempted to reintroduce and update some of the older content in main space but was interrupted while doing so by an editor who did not believe I could accomplish such article. It seemed logical to debate the deleted sections and would like to continue to source and update the deleted/unaccepted sections here on the talk page. This was also not allowed[5]. While I agree the material is quite elaborate and much of it doesn't make the cut, it does deserve a discussion and I'm not aware of limitations on talk page proposals. If it is really not allowed, I wonder what legitimate method remains to improve this article so that it is more in-line with the MKUltra project?

The current sources provided denouncing the "hoax" are:

I believe these insuficient to prove the imaginary nature of Directed-energy_weapon, Sonic weapon and other Non-lethal weapon, but specially Project_MKUltra.

84.106.11.117 (talk) 02:27, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Template talk:Renewable energy sources

I know this has been discussed before. I would like to bring in a few new editors' opinions on whether biomass & biofuel could be removed from the template. Thank you. Brian Everlasting (talk) 23:15, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
