World's oldest people biographies[edit]

Hi Foxj,

Regarding your comment when closing the Emma Tillman AfD, may I ask how best to go about creating guidelines for such biographies, and how to get as many editors involved who are not involved in editing longevity-related articles? Unfortunately it's become a bit of a battleground with too many people trying to push their own personal point of view rather than considering Wikipedia policy, and it's resulted in a mass of articles being chaotically nominated for deletion.

Thanks! -- Ollie231213 (talk) 00:21, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

@Ollie231213: Honestly I'm not sure. Maybe start one in collaboration with the WikiProject? — foxj 12:44, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Julius Green, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The Daily Record (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Thank you![edit]

Hi, Foxj. Just stopping by to thank you for disambiguating all of those links to The Legend of Zelda (video game)—I appreciate it! Also, in case you missed it, a pretty lengthy requested-move discussion is taking place on the original Zelda game's talk page. —zziccardi (talk) 02:48, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

@Zziccardi: Bah. Voiced my opinion, ta. (You're welcome though.) — foxj 19:27, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

re [1]. You were among the original admins to chime on the issue. I don't recall if it were in support of keeping or removing polemics, but I'm fairly certain you stated the content was unpleasant. I was hoping to have old participants (who agreed and disagreed with my view) discuss the policy and come to a consensus on what it should mean and how it should be phrased. Anyway, seeing your lack of interest in chiming in on this, I won't ping you again about it. JaakobouChalk Talk 00:30, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

@Jaakobou: That's alright, don't mean to be blunt, just don't think I can add anything to this (frankly I don't remember getting involved to start with). — foxj 00:31, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
