User talk:Le Grand Roi des Citrouilles#Cruft

I would indeed like to nominate it for deletion; however, I am not sure how to do that as it would be a second nomination. Would you be so kind as to help with formatting a second nomination as I do not know how to do that? My nomination rationale is as follows: As a member of the Kindness Campaign and Welcoming Committee, I strongly believe that "kind" and "welcoming" language are necessary in discussions among editors as members of a community. I therefore whole heartedly agree with Verdatum that "cruft" is "needlessly agressive and needlessly insults the contributors" and that it "also gives the impression that the invoker is on a quest to remove all detail related to various fandoms. This forces the dissenting arguer into an aggressively defensive position which hinders communication and impedes WP:Civil discussion." Use of this term has even spawned single purpose accounts and projects that work at such ends (see for example Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Wikipedia:WikiProject Fancruft). Thus, I believe that Wikipedia:Fancruft, Wikipedia:Cruft, Wikipedia:Listcruft, and Wikipedia:GAMECRUFT should all also be deleted in the interest of fostering more pleasant and constructive discussions. There are more on point and more tactful ways of making the same argument without using this particularly unfortunate word.

Done. Thanks for taking the discussion to a higher level. (Link) User:Krator (t c) 09:57, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! Hopefully, the discussion will encourage editors to seriously think of a more polite way to engage with others in the relevant AfDs and clean up discussions. I don't want to see us lose potentially good editors by having them insulted due to use of an unnecessary word. Sincerely, --Le Grand Roi des CitrouillesTally-ho! 16:57, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Copyediting Crash of the Titans

I was advised by User:Jappalang to get a dedicated and capable copyeditor to go over the Crash of the Titans article (currently a GA) and help get it to A-Class or Featured Article, and you seem to fit the criteria. Sorry if you're busy, but could you go over it, sometime? Cat's Tuxedo (talk) 13:35, 3 July 2008 (UTC)


Could you please help me with this?

List class

Your further comments would be greatly appreciated at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Video games#Break for attention. I fear another no consensus result, which would not be helpful as we already have a list class in use that has not been approved. Either it needs to be not used or approved, but this current situation seems totally undesirable. I have made a proposal for a basic list class which I hope will meet your approval. Please note that {{List-Class}} is accessible in our project's template be default (as is any -Class template), and Category:List-Class video game articles exists, so to not use it we'd need a CfD and special coding in our template, which would require a consensus.
