Request for source[edit]

I am seeing if anyone in the Philippines has access to this source: A Preliminary research on the religious and political right in the Philippines
It would be useful in creating a section on Conservatism in the Philippines. There is a note regarding Religious conservatism in the Philippines, but not much on the political side. Any assistance regarding this would be helpful.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 01:39, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

The link you provided looks OK for citation as a supporting source pblished by the Institute for Popular Democracy advocacy group. It says that the paper content is available on payment of a fee. See also A Preliminary Research on the Religious and Political Right in the Philippines. The Institute. 1989.  Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 23:51, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! I will add what little I have to the religious conservatism page, and hope to find more later. Please see my please see post as well.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 04:54, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

PHL Science Articles[edit]

Anyone interested to edit/copyread to the following new/updated articles: National Academy of Science and Technology,National Scientist of the Philippines, List of Academicians of the Philippines --Carlojoseph14 (talk) 13:18, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Organized crime in the Philippines[edit]

Thought you guys might be interested in cleaning this page up. It seems legit and is a lot better than the "Sindikatu" junk Malusia22 churns out through his sockpuppets, but I'm still asking for your input on how to best deal with this and Mal's apparent gangster fantasies.

List of historical markers in the Philippines[edit]

Can someone look into those Philippine built-heritage lists and explain how they are different from other lists? I have recommended moving the above article to List of historic buildings in the Philippines (or List of marked historic buildings) as the articles listed are buildings and not their markers per se. But I wanna know why, for instance, this shouldn't be just merged with the List of Cultural Properties of the Philippines? Are they not one and the same? (Just maybe some cultural properties don't have markers installed yet?) And what is this National Cultural Treasures of the Philippines? A template and category have been created for this type of buildings but people still don't know what it is, as it does not have an article just like the other heritage building types. They're all just lists. And it doesn't end there. There's also the following categories:

I hope someone from the Task Force can explain their differences and importance before I start nominating some of those lists and categories for deletion/merging. :)--RioHondo (talk) 03:53, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

It's because markers are not exclusively installed on buildings, as some are simply on pedestals, as they commemorate people and events. Also, not all Cultural Properties have historical markers, like San Bartolome Church in Malabon and Rizal Monument in Pasig. The presence of a marker does not also mean the presence of a Cultural Property, like the William J. Burke marker in Escolta. There are also cultural properties which contain more than one marker which depict different people/events/places. For example, in Santa Cruz Church, we have "Church of Santa Cruz," "Justiniano Asuncion (1816-1896)," and "Leoncio Asuncion (1813-1888)." The list is mainly based on other countries' lists like the Blue Plaques in London and county plaques in the US like this one. We also have markers installed outside the country. --Ryomaandres (talk) 23:51, 1 September 2014 (UTC)--Ryomaandres 23:53, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
I see. So how is it different from Category:Marked Historical Structures of the Philippines? Or Category:National Historical Landmarks of the Philippines? Is there a difference between Category:Cultural Properties of the Philippines and Category:Declared Cultural Properties in the Philippines too? What is the National Cultural Treasures of the Philippines and how are Cultural Properties, Declared Cultural Properties and Cultural Treasures different from Category:Philippine Cultural Heritage sites? Or the Philippine Registry of Cultural Property? I think there's way too many names for practically the same type of structures, and it doesn't help that not one of them has an article saying what they are. Category:Historic sites in the Philippines needs a major cleanup too to eliminate all the redundant subcats which you can do by first deciding which titles to use: either their official names (e.g, "National Cultural Treasures") or generic titles (e.g, "Marked historic stuctures" and all those other categories you created which shouldn't be capitalized). As much as i want to help you on this, only you know what is going on here. I would appreciate an article similar to List of protected areas of the Philippines to tell editors and readers what each historic/cultural property type is so that we are better guided. Thanks!--RioHondo (talk) 05:21, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
The categories were set by the NHCP, like the ones here:, although I could not find some document that clearly defines them. Maybe someone who works with the NHCP could clarify. About marked structures in PH, I believe that they're simply structures that have markers on them, although there are markers in which the spot they are located in are not part of the marked structures list, and the difference between the marked structures and list of historical markers list is that there are structures which have a marker that refers to a thing/event/person directly associated with the structure and not the structure per se. For example, the marker where they "stored" Rizal's body before the transfer of his remains to Luneta does not commemorate the apartment per se, but the [demolished] house in that site and the event of Rizal's body being stored there.--Ryomaandres 14:12, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
