Traditional African medicine[edit]

Can someone familiar with the process update this article's talk page and remove it from Wikipedia:Good_articles/Natural_sciences? It seems to have failed reassessment. --NeilN talk to me 23:32, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

NeilN, I'd be happy too, but I'm not sure I understand: Why has never been listed at WP:GAR? I notice in the last few months there have there been edits on the article talk page back and forth from C class to GA class. I see the GA2 page but I'm not sure there is consensus on it to delist the article or even why it exists without a listing on GAR. Thanks for clearing up my confusion. Prhartcom (talk) 01:02, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
@Prhartcom: No idea. I was looking at the GA list, clicked on the article link, and noticed there was no GA icon in the top right corner. I then went to the talk page and tried to figure out why the headers state it's as GA but the GAR said it was delisted. I couldn't, so I'm here :) --NeilN talk to me 01:08, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
All right, thanks for doing that. I know one of the editors who commented; Brigade Piron may be able to help. Also calling on LT910001 who apparently created the GA2 page and can probably answer my question. If there is consensus to delist it that shouldn't be a problem. Prhartcom (talk) 01:15, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
Hello if that page was created by me it was done accidentally. I fully support delisting for reasons documented at the page. Cheers --Tom (LT) (talk) 07:27, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
That's fine, I see that an individual reassessment was initiated, not a community reassessment, which is the only kind that are listed at WP:GAR. I have delisted the article per consensus. It can be reinstated as GA quality by any editor who is ready to submit it to review at WP:GAN. Cheers. Prhartcom (talk) 13:15, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Civil servants[edit]

David Bednar was notable as a theatre exec, in the corporate world. But his legacy is as general manager of an independent non profit corp, the Canadian National Exhibition Association. There's no category for government employees... Do I just put him under the businessperson section? -- Zanimum (talk) 21:34, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

There a politics and government category, which might be appropriate for civil servants? Cordless Larry (talk) 09:02, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. I'm not sure he's a "political figure", though. Would it be kosher to create a new subcategory of "Politics and government"? -- Zanimum (talk) 18:25, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
