A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Six-red World Championship is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Six-red World Championship until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

BLP, ethnicity, gender

Resolved: Responded at the BLP talk page.

Wikipedia talk:Biographies of living persons#Include "ethnicity, gender," to match all other guidelines

Wikilawyers have been trying to drive through a wording loophole in WP:BLP, saying ethnicity and gender, of WP:EGRS, doesn't apply to living persons, simply because the two words aren't in the policy. (Apparently, they think it should only apply to dead people.) I remember you as having been very involved in years past.

They also are trying to remove the notability and relevance criteria for EGRS, but that's another fight for another day, I'm simply too busy to watch two fronts at the same time.

Noted. Please be aware, however, that if you post non-neutral pointers like this, you'll be savaged for "canvassing". — SMcCandlish Talk⇒ ʕ(Õلō Contribs. 07:47, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi! A request for your input

Resolved: Declined.

Per wp:CANVASSING, this is a neutrally worded notice being sent, without any type of "selection" bias, to everyone that edited fairly recently the MOS page about how to term the Latter Day Saints denominations on Wikipedia in the belief that your various and collective expertise or expertises, if that's a plural, can help us improve its wording, if possible. a bit. The most pertinent section is here. And the issue is to what degree the terms "Mormon church" and "LDS church" relate to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in specific, and to what kind of sourcing should be used to document this. Thanks, if you find time and the interest to look into the matter and offer your opinion or commentary.--Hodgson-Burnett's Secret Garden (talk) 23:26, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, but I think I'll sit this one out. I'm not a subject-matter expert, and don't have a very firm opinion on the issue. — SMcCandlish Talk⇒ ʕ(Õلō Contribs. 17:25, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
