Start Dates for future services[edit]

WP:AIRPORT-CONTENT (bullet point #11) specifically states that new services/destinations must have a full start date. So, Air Serbia cannot be added as you did to Pristina International Airport until an FIRM DATE is given. If you disagree, then take your matters to the project talk page. 71.12.206.168 (talk) 02:55, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

That is a preferred notation on a Wikiproject, not a Wikipedia Policy or Guideline. IJA (talk) 11:22, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, that was a guideline, which was agreed by consensus at WT:AIRLINE. And you're not following the majority's opinions with your edits, so please stop.--Jetstreamer Talk 13:03, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
I only made one revision, so what 'edits' (plural) are you referring to? Anyway it was sourced content and depriving our readers/ audiences of properly and reliably referenced knowledge on an encyclopaedia isn't an improvement for Wikipedia. If a rule prevents you from improving or maintaining Wikipedia, ignore it, this is one of the key principles of Wikipedia. I don't particularly care what was agreed at WP:AIRLINE, depriving people of knowledge on a free encyclopaedia goes against what Wikipedia stands for. Does it really matter if a start date is yet to be confirmed? IJA (talk) 13:25, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Oh and I've read that so-called consensus, it hardly stands for much as the so-called consensus doesn't explicitly state that an exact start date must be included before content should be added. Snoozlepet stated there should be a firm date but everyone else said it should just be a year. So my revert was in line with the so-called consensus as it included the year. It would appear that (bullet #11) was added to WP:AIRPORT-CONTENT without a consensus. IJA (talk) 13:35, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Forgot to add WP:NOTNEWS and WP:NOTRAVEL. Wait for a firm date for the new destination to be added.--Jetstreamer Talk 13:42, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes this content isn't news or a travel guide but encyclopaedic content about a future destination for the airport. Also, give me one good reason why I should "Wait for a firm date"? I've already shown that there is no consensus, if there is a consensus, it is to just add the year. IJA (talk) 13:46, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Here you have the link to the discussion where the inclusion of the year (aside from month and day) was under debate. Pleaso also note that bobrayner stated that they updated the guidelines following consensus.--Jetstreamer Talk 14:07, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
That doesn't say we can't have just a year, it says that if we use an exact date, we must include the year too to clarify which year. That archived discussion does not state that an exact confirmed date must be established before content can be added to the article. IJA (talk) 14:14, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── The source says that flights are expected to start in 2015. Therefore, it's reasonable for the article to say that flights are expected to start in 2015. To remove sourced content because one of wikipedia's internal guidelines prefers a precise date is either witless bureaucratism or deliberate disruption. Jetstreamer, when you linked to my comments, did you realise I was responding to somebody who was deliberately removing sourced content, leaving readers vulnerable to outdated articles? Do you now realise you're using the same comment to justify removing sourced content which leaves readers vulnerable to an outdated article? bobrayner (talk) 16:32, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Cheers Bob. The content is sourced, I don't understand why we can't say that flights will take place at some point this year without having an exact date. It is ludicrous! IJA (talk) 16:39, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

I have started a discussion at WT:AIRPORTS regarding this. Let's continue the discussion there. Citydude1017 (talk) 17:11, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

The sourced content can be included anywhere in the article, except for the destinations table according to WP:AIRPORT-CONTENT. I don't know why this is so difficult to understand.--Jetstreamer Talk 17:15, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Many people have different opinions and arguments on Wikipedia. That is why it would be best to discuss this matter so we can all come to an agreement and strive to make Wikipedia a better encyclopedia. Citydude1017 (talk) 17:36, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

International recognition of Kosovo[edit]

Looks as if STP does not recognise right now. Would you like to add anything to Talk:International recognition of Kosovo before any changes are made? --Oranges Juicy (talk) 16:01, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
