Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: An article was erroneously tagged by a member of this project.
A: Do not remove the banner. Ask the member why they tagged it, or post a message at the project talk page (below). Note: the banner does not imply that the subject has a conservative or right-wing ideology, has no relevance to neutral POV, nor that WikiProject Conservatism owns the article.[1]
Q: I'm a member and the banner I added to an article talk page was removed.
A: From PROGGUIDE: You may not force them to remove the banner. No editor may prohibit a group of editors from showing their interest in an article. This warning {{UWCNSV-BANNER}} can be used to notify an editor of the guideline.
Q: Can non-members tag articles?
A: Yes, but if a member removes the banner do not replace it.[1]
Q: The quality or importance rating of an article is incorrect.
A: Anyone can change the rating. Make sure to consult the assessment scale here. Ratings are subjective, importance ratings in particular can be controversial. Disputes will be resolved by project members at the project talk page (below).[2][3]
Q: What is the scope of this WikiProject?
A: As stated on the main page of this project, we are dedicated to improving articles related to conservatism, not limited to any particular form or national variety of conservatism.

Prager University[edit]

You are invited to participate in the ongoing discussion at WP:ELN#Linking to Prager University, which addresses the creation of external links to Prager University, a website associated with conservative radio host Dennis Prager. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 17:20, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

As the discussion has not reached a close I have started an RfC. You are more than welcome to participate if you have not already done so. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 21:10, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Help on Reince Priebus[edit]

Hi everyone, I'm hoping to find editors who can help on the article for Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, since the article is covered by this WikiProject. Briefly, the article needs some updating to add in details about his career, particularly his political career prior to becoming chair of the RNC, and information on his tenure as chair. A key example: the article does not mention of his former role as chairman of the Wisconsin Republican Party.

On the article's Talk page, I've proposed a few updates and corrections. Some of these have been made in the article, however, editors who assisted have not returned to look at the suggestions for the Career section. To be fully transparent, I'm working as a consultant to the RNC and due to that financial conflict of interest I will not make any direct edits to the article. Instead, I am proposing updates for editors to review and make the changes they feel appropriate. Is anyone from this WikiProject able to help? Thanks, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 22:49, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi again, just a quick ping here to note that while the details about Priebus's previous political roles have been added, I do have a few remaining edits I'm requesting for the Career section of the article. I have also just added some new suggestions for the RNC chairman section. If you can take a look, let me know if you have any questions. Thanks in advance. 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 22:23, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Talk:New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case#Removal of an RS[edit]

You are invited to join the discussion at Talk:New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case#Removal of an RS. Thanks. RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 04:49, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

I do not think that the New Black Panther Party is a conservative group. I do recognize from reading the page that the case has received more news coverage from conservative outlets than from neutral or liberal ones. --Tryptofish (talk) 22:42, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Help on Tom Graves?[edit]

Hello, I'm looking for help with some updates to the Rep. Tom Graves article and I wonder if anyone active on this project might be willing to help. At present, some of the article sections are lacking in detail or WP:RS citations, or both. I also see a few areas where the wording does not conform to the cited source and / or is not encyclopedic. I'm seeking to address these issues. Worth noting, I am working as a consultant on behalf of Rep. Graves and, considering my financial COI, I won't make any direct edits to the article. What I have done instead is to propose suggested updates on the Talk page here. If anyone is able to review and make the changes as they feel are appropriate, I'd be very grateful. Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 23:11, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Foundation for Excellence in Education[edit]

Hello. I've restored Foundation for Excellence in Education from PROD, and started adding referenced info. Please feel free to help and expand the page. A section about the history of the organization and another about the policies suggested would be a good place to start.Zigzig20s (talk) 02:03, 18 February 2015 (UTC)


A discussion about the redirect Secular-progressive and its variants have stalled. One points to Culture Warrior and two to Progressivism. Maybe this is inviting the foxes into the henhouse, but could you chime in at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2015 February 18#Secular-progressive? --BDD (talk) 17:14, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
