August 2016[edit]

It appears that you have been canvassing—leaving messages on a biased choice of users' talk pages to notify them of an ongoing community decision, debate, or vote—in order to influence Wikipedia talk:Categories, lists, and navigation templates. While friendly notices are allowed, they should be limited and nonpartisan in distribution and should reflect a neutral point of view. Please do not post notices which are indiscriminately cross-posted, which espouse a certain point of view or side of a debate, or which are selectively sent only to those who are believed to hold the same opinion as you. Remember to respect Wikipedia's principle of consensus-building by allowing decisions to reflect the prevailing opinion among the community at large. Thank you.

Robsinden, so can we notify everyone involved in the discussions you linked? The editors who were involved in discussions which you then link to "prove a point" probably should all be notified, so they can comment on the interpretation of those discussions. That seems the fairest way to go. I don't want to be an Al Gore who wanted a selective recount of Florida counties in 2000, and thus lost the U.S. presidency which he would have won by asking for a recount of the entire state. I've probably missed dozens/hundreds of major discussions on topics I'd have an interest in simply because there are dozens/hundreds of places on Wikipedia where they take place, and there are only so many minutes in a day (1,140). Pings to all interested editors seems the fair way to go. Randy Kryn 13:48, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
You can, that's fine, but anything you do has to be neutral. What you did was selectively pick editors who agreed with your stance and not the users who supported removal of the templates, which is WP:VOTESTACKING. --Rob Sinden (talk) 14:30, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
