Editor of the Week : nominations needed![edit]

The Editor of the Week initiative has been recognizing editors since 2013 for their hard work and dedication. Editing Wikipedia can be disheartening and tedious at times; the weekly Editor of the Week award lets its recipients know that their positive behaviour and collaborative spirit is appreciated. The response from the honorees has been enthusiastic and thankful.

The list of nominees is running short, and so new nominations are needed for consideration. Have you come across someone in your editing circle who deserves a pat on the back for improving article prose regularly, making it easier to understand? Or perhaps someone has stepped in to mediate a contentious dispute, and did an excellent job. Do you know someone who hasn't received many accolades and is deserving of greater renown? Is there an editor who does lots of little tasks well, such as cleaning up citations?

Please help us thank editors who display sustained patterns of excellence, working tirelessly in the background out of the spotlight, by submitting your nomination for Editor of the Week today!

Talk:Donald Trump[edit]

Hello Edge3, I just saw you reverted my close of the infobox RfC, although consensus looked clear. The outbox draft has been moved to the article and the discussion on extensions about Trump's business career is taking place in a new section, to which I point in my summary. I think it's best to continue there, wouldn't you agree? — JFG talk 22:56, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

Hey JFG! I agree that the consensus on the RfC question was pretty clear. However, I was just concerned that several people were still participating on the WP:OUTBOX subthread. I wasn't sure whether it would be proper form to cut off that discussion.
I'd also like to point out that a formal close isn't strictly required. As per WP:RFCEND, "If the matter under discussion is not contentious and the consensus is obvious to the participants, then formal closure is neither necessary nor advisable. Written closing statements are not required. Editors are expected to be able to evaluate and agree upon the results of most RfCs without outside assistance."
Further down the page, it also says that using {{Archive top}} isn't required. I think it might be fine to end the RfC without using {{Archive top}} to end the discussion. What do you think?
From my perspective, I'm just interested in making sure that the consensus-building process continues, so that we can find the compromise/alternative solution that satisfies a wide variety of people. I'd welcome other suggestions you may have. Edge3 (talk) 23:10, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for your remarks; glad we agree on substance. I chose to archive the thread so that RfC advertising stops (we don't need new opinions) and so that visiting editors see clearly that we have moved on. This will avoid back and forth while preserving the full discussion so that prior arguments can be referenced. If you don't mind, I'll re-instate the close. Tehcnically, it's not a formal close, it's a "we reached consensus and we moved on" close; that is sufficiently rare in those protracted discussions on politics pages, so let's celebrate! — JFG talk 23:19, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
More precisely, this thread reached consensus on some issues, as summarized in the close, and discussion on further developments continues in a new thread below. One ladder step at a time… — JFG talk 23:21, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
Fine with me. I also saw that Bockmanrocks consented to closing the thread. You may carry on as you'd like. Unfortunately I can't do it myself because I have to head out right now, but if you need anything then I'll respond in a few hours. Have a good one! Edge3 (talk) 23:22, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
