December 2008[edit]

Request for comment on Biographies of living people[edit]

Hello Wikiproject! Currently there is a discussion which will decide whether wikipedia will delete 49,000 articles about a living person without references, here:

Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Biographies of living people

Since biographies of living people covers so many topics, nearly all wikiproject topics will be effected.

The two opposing positions which have the most support is:

  1. supports the deletion of unreferenced articles about a living person, User:Jehochman
  2. opposes the deletion of unreferenced articles about a living person, except in limited circumstances, User:Collect

Comments are welcome. Keep in mind that by default, editor's comments are hidden. Simply press edit next to the section to add your comment.

Please keep in mind that at this point, it seems that editors support deleting unreferenced article if they are not sourced, so your project may want to pursue the projects below.

Glastonbury Tor[edit]

I'm not convinced Glastonbury Tor is within the scope of WP Islands. from the article:

It has been described as an island but actually sits at the western end of a peninsula washed on three sides by the River Brue.

There are three other Wikiprojects watching this article. It's not referred to as an island in the lead and is not tagged in any island-related categories. Can we remove our wikiproject from its talk page? PaintedCarpet (talk) 00:34, 28 May 2014 (UTC)


I have nominated Caroline Island for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. PaintedCarpet (talk) 21:24, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Unassessed Articles[edit]

I've gone through and cleared the backlog of unassessed articles. As of today, the only articles in that category left are ones I've personally written, which I've not assessed to avoide COI. If anyone else can take a look at the remaining unassessed articles and rate them, that'd be great. PaintedCarpet (talk) 19:21, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
