WikiProject Eurovision: Important Announcement
Dear Project Member
Following a project community discussion, which was raised over the use of English translation columns on annual contest articles, and advice from the lead coordinator of The Guild of Copy Editors, who are extremely knowledgeable in regards to all editing practises and manual of style policies. A consensus decision has been reached to fully remove ALL English translations, as such content falls under the prohibition on original research, even if it seems helpful to the reader. This is because we have now to assume that every reader has access to automated translation tools that can always give them a sense of the meaning of the title in their native language; it is not Wikipedia's job to provide those tools for the reader. Which therefore means we are no longer to include an English translation column, nor are we to provide translation by any other means on contest articles.
Such information is currently in the process of being removed, and a new table formatting and layout style is being rolled out across all articles. Please view the new guidance on table layout at Wikipedia:WikiProject Eurovision/Format and Guides#Article layout. An example of the new table layout style can also be access via the collapsed section within this message. Thank you.
|New table format and layout per advice from the guild of copy-editors and consensus of the project community
- 1.^ The song is in French; however, there is one sentence in English and one sentence in Spanish.
- 2.^ The song is completely in Italian; however the last line was sung in English at the contest.

Articles you might like to edit, from SuggestBot
We'd like to invite you to participate in a user study closely related to SuggestBot. User:Another Article is seeking to understand more about the workflow and time commitment of contributors to the English Wikipedia. As part of this study you will occasionally be prompted to answer questions about your editing activity, and these questions should never take more than a minute or two to complete. The intended length of the study is two weeks, but your actual time commitment is totally up to you. If you would like to see more details you can read the project proposal at Research:Measuring editor time commitment and workflow (on meta), but if you are feeling bold and would like just like to sign up right now you can add the line
importScript("User:Another_Article/workflowstudyclient.js"); to your
common.js. Contact User:Another Article if you have any questions about this study!
Note: All columns in this table are sortable, allowing you to rearrange the table so the articles most interesting to you are shown at the top. All images have mouse-over popups with more information. For more information about the columns and categories, please consult the documentation and please get in touch on SuggestBot's talk page with any questions you might have.
SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. We appreciate that you have signed up to receive suggestions regularly; your contributions make Wikipedia better — thanks for helping!
If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please let us know on SuggestBot's talk page. -- SuggestBot (talk) 23:48, 5 October 2016 (UTC)
I do not make disruptive editing. If you check the Junior Eurovision Song Contest channel on YouTube, they have uploaded the official music video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3haUyqJ69sw). This is the name of the band and of the song. They will probably update the site soon. I think I have to turn it back to "Water Of Life". User:Dimsar01 talk 17:57, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
- @Dimsar01: You did disruptively edit. We cannot use YouTube as verification of published material due to copyright. Therefore the song title must remain as is shown on the citation currently used on the participation table. If you change it back, you will be violating unsourced content which is disruptive editing. Wes Mouse T@lk 17:59, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
- Okay, so we will change it when they update the site. Thank you for correcting me. User:Dimsar01 talk 18:02, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
- It is not a case of correcting you, @Dimsar01:. You have been an editor on Wikipedia over 3 years now, and should know that citing material for verification purposes is core policy. And everyone who is a member of WikiProject Eurovision also knows that YouTube cannot be used to cite content. Wes Mouse T@lk 18:07, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

I was wondering if you could do me a favor and close a merge discussion that has gone nowhere for a month. As there seem to be no opposition to my oppose vote at the article about Gudrun Sjödén. Regards,--BabbaQ (talk) 13:12, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
