"Keep Portland Weird"[edit]

What is "weird" about microbreweries, food carts and distilleries? How do these things contribute to the slogan "Keep Portland Weird"? The sources for this assertion come from a Daily Mail article that does not connect Portland's food scene with this unofficial slogan.

Personally, I thought Portland was considered "weird" for its many non-mainstream subcultures and Bohemian reputation, not its dining options. In any case, this is a weakly-backed claim that does not belong in the introduction. --Aeranis (talk) 05:23, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

East Portland Secession movement, March 2015[edit]

A group called East Portland de-Annexation Secession has filed a measure with the City of Portland, and are now looking to take their secession plea to the state level. Please update the article with this latest breaking information. Petition for East Portland to secede from the rest of the city -- November 2016 General Election Initiative Petition Log, East Portland de-Annexation Secession movement --CookieMonster755 (talk) 01:31, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a tool to generate publicity. If this initiative becomes notable as reflected in extensive coverage in reliable, independent news sources that can be cited, it will be discussed in this article. Until and unless that occurs, it will not. See also WP:RECENT. Dwpaul Talk 01:36, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Also note that per your second link, the Portland City Auditor found on March 4 that the "petition does not meet the requirements of Section 1 (2)(d) and (5), Article IV of the Oregon Constitution." Dwpaul Talk 01:41, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Please read the news story. Many news outlets are covering the topic :) But i do understand what you mean Dwpaul CookieMonster755 (talk) 02:26, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Hardly seems worth mention at this point. It will get more media attention if it makes it onto the ballot, but we shouldn't anticipate that per WP:CRYSTAL. VQuakr (talk) 02:29, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Aye, I understand. Wikipedia is defiantly not a crystal ball. CookieMonster755 (talk) 02:53, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
