Rod Rosenstein/Paul Ryan Meeting[edit]

  • @Jasonanaggie and MelanieN: I agree with MelanieN's removal but for different reasons. We don't include every minor mention of Paul Ryan in this article. He's a well known person and there are a lot of media references. Inclusion in the article should have importance to the topic of the article. This meeting does not. Belongs in the article on the investigation, not in an article on every name mentioned. @Jason: Other editors have been sanctioned in the past for massively adding this type of material where it doesn't belong for the sole purpose of soap-boxing it. Please don't do that.--v/r - TP 03:01, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your input, TP. I have removed this item from several articles where it was either irrelevant or trivial. In a few other articles I retained the meeting, but removed the claim that the meeting was about "Devin Nunes' interference with the investigation", because the source does not support that. --MelanieN (talk) 03:13, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 1 April 2018[edit]

Please add the following template after the first two official links in External links

Please remove the THOMAS links. replace THOMAS years ago and the referenced information is available from the Member link for Paul Ryan at

The last link, for the WI Historical Society, is broken. It might be although that contains little information. (talk) 14:53, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

Immediately before the Authority Control section at the end of the article is a hidden group of category boxes inexplicably titled "Articles related to Paul Ryan". These are not articles, but categories. Please clarify this by changing the title to "Additional categories related to Paul Ryan". (talk) 14:58, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

 Not done: Those aren't categories. They are navboxes, and they are collapsed because there are alot of them. This is standard operating procedure. – Muboshgu (talk) 15:03, 1 April 2018 (UTC)
Then please rename "Articles" to "Navboxes". The problem isn't the collapsing but the title of the collapsed section. They are not articles, so the current title is very misleading. (talk) 16:20, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
Everyone of the links in those collapsed navboxes are articles. ~ GB fan 17:16, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Representative Ryan skipped the filing deadline[edit]

Hello. This article confirms that Mr Ryan skipped his district's primary filing deadline. Can anyone tell me if this fact is notable enough to be included in the 115th Congress section? --Синкретик (talk) 14:51, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

There is already a mention in the article detailing his announced retirement from public service. The assumption in that announcement is that he will not file to run for elected office again. (Technically speaking, he could serve as "Speaker of the House" without being an elected member of it's body, but that has not happened yet in U.S. History.) -- Sleyece (talk) 00:20, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
