Move request: Chinese_Canadians_in_British_Columbia to Chinese_Canadians_in_Greater Vancouver[edit]

Hello. I have submitted a move request for Chinese_Canadians_in_British_Columbia to be moved to Chinese_Canadians_in_Greater Vancouver. Another Wikipedian believes it is improper to have ethnicity-based articles focusing on a city, so he moved Chinese_Canadians_in_Greater Vancouver (I created this article with the intention of focusing on the Chinese community in Vancouver) to Chinese_Canadians_in_British_Columbia. My move request is here: Talk:Chinese_Canadians_in_British_Columbia#Requested_move. You are welcome to discuss whether it is proper to have an article focusing on a Chinese ethnic population of a particular city or metro area, or whether there should only be such articles focusing on prefectures/provinces/states.

For full disclosure, both I and the Wikipedian who moved the page are together currently involved in an editing dispute regarding Indo-Canadians in Greater Vancouver and Indo-Canadians in British Columbia over whether the articles should remain separate or be combined together. You may see the pages of this dispute here:

This notification is contrary to guidelines and includes editorializing which falls under WP:POLLING.Skookum1 (talk) 07:14, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

WP:POLLING is about the collection of votes or deciding things by votes. The purpose of this message is to inform all interested parties by WikiProject. WhisperToMe (talk) 12:12, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Then I used the wrong wiki-cap title; WP:POLL maybe, the attempt to enlist sympathetic votes rather than simply stating the existence of the the discussion; your inclusion of the ancillary links is also a violation; for an admin, you sure aren't in habit of respecting things like that; not that lots of admins behave questionably.Skookum1 (talk) 05:22, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Cumandins and Kachins[edit]

The article Cumandins states they are related to the Kachins. This is impossible as the Kachins are Tibeto-Burmese. Could someone please look into the matter...?04:22, 22 November 2014 (UTC)Aldrasto11 (talk) 04:26, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

Peer review: Bolokhoveni[edit]

The article is about a medieval ethnic group dwelling in present-day Ukraine or Moldova. All comments here would be appreciated. Borsoka (talk) 05:50, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Should there be a Vancouver-centric split of Chinese Canadians in British Columbia?[edit]

Should there be a Vancouver-centric split of Chinese Canadians in British Columbia?
