Nomination of Golden Rooster Award for Best Director for deletion
A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Golden Rooster Award for Best Director is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.
The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Golden Rooster Award for Best Director until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.
Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article.
It might have been noticed by people that I have been adding (probably hundreds by now) of articles to the 'workload' of this WikiProject, even though I'm not 'formally' a member or anything. This is from 'assessment' cleanup on my part, specifically running through the of 'unassessed articles' categories....at the moment, I'm specifically looking at 'regional' ones and 'assigning and classing as list' the articles that are named "(year) in (country)" and "List of....". I'm not doing it with AWB, I'm 'manually' adding all the appropriate categories, but I've actually 'requested' a 'bot run' to add this project as "class=list, importance=unknown" to every article with a name starting with 'list of'....there are a /lot/ missing from this project. Hopefully this is within the 'set' of 'obviously helpful things'. :)
- This would, I think, specifically help with catching 'errors' in the 'classification' of articles....I've added this project to articles, and filled the 'missing' classes in as list on quite a few articles that were in 'list' subcategories. It's not 'uncommon' for the....whatever it's called, it's optional, 'description of the article's assessment' displayed under the article title to not display as 'list-class', even after purges, dummy and null edits, until I manually 'added and removed' the top level 'lists' category.
Lists of listed buildings for WLM from semi automated scripts
In preparation for Wiki Loves Monuments, where the UK will be taking part in 2013 for the first time a whole load of lists are being generated for the relevant sites (all Grade I and Grade II* listed buildings in England & A & B in other coutries). As I've got some experience with lists of this sort I (along with others) have been asked to help. See Listed buildings in the United Kingdom for the scale of the task. Some of the (mostly GI) already have lists and some are FL which are going to be dealt with last as the "standard format" may be an issue. To enable people to upload photos easily for inclusion in WLM standard list headers and rows have been created eg Template:EH listed building header and Template:EH listed building row (with similar for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland). Lists are being generated by a script from spreadsheets provided by the regulatory bodies - but they need a lot of clean up and manual wikilinking, adding pics etc. I am focusing on Grade II* listed buildings in Somerset and its 7 sub lists covering 1000+ entries (as GI are all done). I have got furthest with Grade II* listed buildings in North Somerset and Grade II* listed buildings in Sedgemoor. They are not ready for FL yet - too many redlinks & missing photos (which is the idea of WLM) but could someone take a look at the tables and see if there are any glaring problems before I and others work on the hundreds of other lists going through this process?— Rod talk 10:26, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
- I'm not familiar with the list code you're using, but it is odd to see the "Completed" column justified "up" while the rest of the columns are justified "center". Also, what does the asterisk after Grade II* mean? If it's part of the official label, perhaps it should be noted as so. Because I was looking for an asterisk explanation at the bottom of the list. Other than that, things look in order. --Dkriegls (talk to me!) 05:07, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

The RfC process does not seem to have a tag for lists, but project members may wish to comment on an RFC related to list content requirements:
There are a large number of lists at that are an alphabetical listing of items e.g. List of populated places in Hungary. The clear solution is to split the list into separate articles, 1 per letter etc. e.g. List of arcade video games. To aid navigation, I added a navigation template (or Index if you prefer) to the bottom of the page. I noticed that an editor has now moved the template to near the top of the individual articles. I wondered if there was a clear preference for where the template should go. I am asking because it takes a lot of time to make a change and going forward, I would like to get it right. If there is, a preference, can it be included in a guideline and if so which one. Op47 (talk) 16:25, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
- Quick notes: For WP:SIZE splits, we often try to do so as little as possible, ie. only splitting into 2 or 3 parts if that handles the size problem. Otherwise it is more difficult to watchlist, and more difficult for readers to search for items within a page. –Quiddity (talk) 18:54, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
Add s song fo me please, thanks.
The List of Romanian words of possible Dacian origin article has been proposed for deletion. It is similar to the articles under Category:Lists of English words, particularly List of English words from indigenous languages of the Americas and Category:Lists of English words of Celtic origin, and could act as a precedent. Your opinions are welcomed.--Codrin.B (talk) 14:48, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
Notability tag on List of massacres in Germany
- Yes. The article is unsourced.

- I see that nobody has mentioned WP:LISTN yet. That is the policy that applies here. By that standard, even List of events named massacres has not yet proved that the list itself (as opposed to the individual entries) is notable: the only sources cited in the lead are the Oxford dictionary definitions of massacre (n.) and massacre (v.). For that matter, Massacre is poorly sourced. RockMagnetist (talk) 00:51, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
