Wikiproject Military history coordinator election nominations open[edit]

Nominations for the upcoming project coordinator election are now open. A team of up to ten coordinators will be elected for the next year. The project coordinators are the designated points of contact for issues concerning the project, and are responsible for maintaining our internal structure and processes. They do not, however, have any authority over article content or editor conduct, or any other special powers. More information on being a coordinator is available here. If you are interested in running, please sign up here by 23:59 UTC on 14 September! Voting doesn't commence until 15 September. If you have any questions, you can contact any member of the coord team. Cheers, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 00:53, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

DJ Butler[edit]

I'm doing some background research on DJ Butler for a possible page in my sandbox. He's a local steampunk/speculative fiction author, so I thought you might be interested. So far, I don't think there's enough material for a page, but if you know of some other sources on him, that could change. Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 17:37, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

@Rachel Helps (BYU): Yeah, there aren't any articles about him (the interview doesn't count). He also hasn't won any awards that would help establish notability. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:45, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Agreed. Thanks for your help. Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 15:14, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Portal:Anime and manga/Anniversaries/November/November 16[edit]

A tag has been placed on Portal:Anime and manga/Anniversaries/November/November 16 requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section P1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a portal which would be subject to speedy deletion if it were an article.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.  — Mr. Guye (talk) (contribs)  05:00, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

@Mr. Guye: That speedy deletion criterion makes no sense. Portal pages are not articles, especially not portal anniversary pages. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 18:33, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Rachel Thorn[edit]

On October 9, 2018, Rachel Thorn tweeted: "It is really messed up that I've had a Wikipedia article since 2005, yet Dr. Strickland didn't get one till the day she won a Nobel prize. I wonder if I would have gotten one if people knew 13 years ago that I was a woman." The edit history of Rachel Matt Thorn shows that you created her page on October 22, 2005. I'm not sure she means now to impugn your integrity, but that does seem to be one possibility. Please, do you have a response? KalHolmann (talk) 03:53, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

@KalHolmann: I created the page back then because (as Matt Thorn) she was very well known for being one of the first translators of manga in North America, and she'd had a lot of articles written about her. Therefore, she easily met WP:N and WP:V. I am not familiar with Dr. Strickland, so I can't say whether she had enough third-party coverage before her Nobel prize win. Basically, there's no reason to be trying to stir up controversy, KalHolmann, where there is none. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:08, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
