Nomination of Ekin Tunçay Turan for deletion
The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ekin Tunçay Turan 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 notice from the top of the article.
I've just considerably expanded the article on Joan McCracken, 1940s Broadway and film star and dancer. Problem is that there is only one good source, a biography from 2003. It's a very good and authoritative source, but I hate to base an entire article on one source. The problem is, except for obituaries of questionable reliability, I can't find much else. Any help with sourcing or the article would be great. Coretheapple (talk) 17:29, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
Popular pages tool update
As of January, the popular pages tool has moved from the Toolserver to Wikimedia Tool Labs. The code has changed significantly from the Toolserver version, but users should notice few differences. Please take a moment to look over your project's list for any anomalies, such as pages that you expect to see that are missing or pages that seem to have more views than expected. Note that unlike other tools, this tool aggregates all views from redirects, which means it will typically have higher numbers. (For January 2014 specifically, 35 hours of data is missing from the WMF data, which was approximated from other dates. For most articles, this should yield a more accurate number. However, a few articles, like ones featured on the Main Page, may be off).
Web tools, to replace the ones at tools:~alexz/pop, will become available over the next few weeks at toollabs:popularpages. All of the historical data (back to July 2009 for some projects) has been copied over. The tool to view historical data is currently partially available (assessment data and a few projects may not be available at the moment). The tool to add new projects to the bot's list is also available now (editing the configuration of current projects coming soon). Unlike the previous tool, all changes will be effective immediately. OAuth is used to authenticate users, allowing only regular users to make changes to prevent abuse. A visible history of configuration additions and changes is coming soon. Once tools become fully available, their toolserver versions will redirect to Labs.
If you have any questions, want to report any bugs, or there are any features you would like to see that aren't currently available on the Toolserver tools, see the updated FAQ or contact me on my talk page. Mr.Z-bot (talk) (for Mr.Z-man) 05:31, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
Dear theatre enthusiasts: Here's a new Afc submission that is about an actor. It needs a lot of work, but can someone confirm that this is a notable subject? —Anne Delong (talk) 12:12, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
The Gingerbread Lady in London
Saw a production of THE GINGERBREAD LADY in London starring Elaine Stritch in December of 1974. There is no mention of this production in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 05:07, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
