Discussion on notability of local elections in the UK[edit]

Hello. As you're a regular contributor in the field, I thought you might be interested in this discussion on notability of local elections in the UK (and this AfD). Cheers, Number 57 06:33, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for that. --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 13:46, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

Talk pages on guideline & policy pages are not a venue to announce RfCs for an article[edit]

And, of course, there is no WP:RfC. You also need to use section headings that don't focus on one particular editors. Sometimes we might, but you should be more specific. "Recent edits" would do, for instance. Talk pages after all are for discussing things such as edits, not editors. Doug Weller talk 15:44, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Lewisham East (UK Parliament constituency)[edit]

Hi I took out the bolding in the winning candidate line to keep the page consistent with the style guide:

Is there something I am missing or doing wrong? Every other constituency page I edit has it that way too.

If you mean: it's an example showing the election boxes, rather than a definitive election box. I think "winning" was added later to the template. The WikiFairies just haven't got around to putting them all in bold. Some editors try to put winning candidates in bold which doesn't bold the name of the party, see this correction. --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 14:51, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

Ok I get it. I used to bold the winners but then I got burnt by an editor who felt quite strongly against it. They have since been banned for unrelated reasons. So bolding it is. If I get dusted up again I will be calling you in as the cavalry though :). I will go back and change all those constituency pages I have edited so that the winners are bolded. And the related by-election pages.

Block message:

I use a dongle and I believe I was unintentionally blocked along with this IP vandal.

Accept reason:

Vintage Feminist, we believe you should be able to edit now. Happy editing! Yamla (talk) 14:21, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

@Drmies: You blocked Special:Contributions/ as a sock farm. The block is not anon-only, presumably because of the rampant sockpuppetry. But I see no overlap between edits from that range and this account, who has been editing for six years now with a clean record. I therefore suggest you, as blocking admin, consider changing the block to anon-only. Thoughts? --Yamla (talk) 12:20, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Yamla, I changed the block from hard to soft; Vintage Feminist, that should take care of the problem--sorry you got caught up in it. There were indeed a few socks here who were related to someone vandalizing one specific article for a few years now. I semi-protected that article also, so I'm hoping that will minimize that problem too. Drmies (talk) 13:52, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Yamla and Drmies - England beat Sweden 2-0 in the 2018 FIFA World Cup#Quarter-finals and I'm back in the game! --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 16:57, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
Was it ever in doubt that they would? I'm watching Croatia right now, holding on to a one-goal lead. Imagine Belgium and Croatia both going through. What's next, Liechtenstein and San Marino? Drmies (talk) 20:24, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

Greetings, I noted that a few years ago you worked on the Katharine Coman article. I have been working on it the last several days and would like to get your input on the edits made. Please drop by if you are interested. Thanks for all you do.AnaSoc (talk) 00:56, 9 July 2018 (UTC)
