The Requests for closure noticeboard is for posting requests to have an uninvolved editor assess, summarize, and formally close a discussion on Wikipedia. Formal closure by an uninvolved editor or administrator should be requested where consensus remains unclear, where the issue is a contentious one, or where there are wiki-wide implications.

Ball1.png

Many discussions do not need formal closure and do not need to be listed here.

Many discussions result in a reasonably clear consensus, so if the consensus is clear, any editor—even one involved in the discussion—may close the discussion. The default length of a formal request for comment is 30 days (opened on or before 7 January 2016); if consensus becomes clear before that and discussion has slowed, then it may be closed early. However, editors usually wait at least a week after an RfC opens, unless the outcome is very obvious, so that there is enough time for a full discussion.

If consensus is unclear, then post a neutral request here for assistance.

Please ensure that your request for a close is brief and neutrally worded. Please include a link to the discussion. Do not use this board to continue the discussion in question. Be prepared to wait for someone to review the discussion. If you disagree with a particular closure, do not dispute it here. You can start discussion at the original page or request a Closure review at Administrators' noticeboard with a link to the discussion page and the policy-based reason you believe the closure should be overturned. See Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Closure review archive for previous closure reviews.

Any uninvolved editor may close most discussions, so long as they are prepared to discuss and justify their closing rationale.

Because requests for closure made here are often those that are the most contentious, closing these discussions can be a significant responsibility. Closers should be familiar with all policies and guidelines that could apply to the given discussion. All closers should be prepared to fully discuss the closure rationale with any editors who have questions about the closure or the underlying policies, and to provide advice about where to discuss any remaining concerns that those editors may have.

A request for comment discussed how to appeal closures and whether an administrator can summarily overturn a non-administrator's closure. The consensus was that closures should not be reverted solely because the closer was not an administrator. However, special considerations apply for articles for deletion and move discussions—see Wikipedia:Deletion process#Non-administrators closing discussions and Wikipedia:Requested moves/Closing instructions for details.

Once a discussion listed on this page has been closed, please add {{Close}} or {{Done}} and a note to the request here, after which the request will be archived.

Wikipedia:Categories for discussion[edit]

This discussion forum has an extensive backlog with approximately 150 discussions that have yet to be closed, the oldest of which is from 2015 October 15. Marcocapelle (talk) 10:06, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Non-free content review[edit]

This discussion forum has an extensive backlog where the oldest active entry was started on 10 June 2015 ({{Initiated|10 June 2015}}), and at the time if me posting this request, the page has 163 discussions that have yet to be closed, several started over a month ago. Steel1943 (talk) 19:10, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Please update {{Initiated}} below as the backlog is (slowly) taken care of.--Aervanath (talk) 19:35, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
(Initiated 238 days ago on 13 June 2015)
About 155 discussions still to be closed.

Since this discussion board is now deprecated, and there will be no new discussions opened there, I would appreciate some help clearing the backlog.--Aervanath (talk) 21:56, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

  • I just "did" about 3 of them. For the ones where I believe could really use more discussion, I've been relisting them on WP:FFD (but not in huge droves as that would overwhelm the daily subpages over there.) Steel1943 (talk) 21:59, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
  • We're getting close to having all these discussions closed. NFCR is now down to 100 open discussions. Also, in November, NFCR was shut down to new requests, directing new requests to WP:FFD; when all of the discussions are closed from NFCR, the noticeboard will be closed and marked as historical.

Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Capital letters#RfC: Should an "a-prefixing" guideline be added to MOS:CT?[edit]

There have been about a dozen comments in the last 30 days, but a consensus is not clear. It has not been contentious, but since it affects a WP guideline, an uninvolved editor is requested to assess consensus and close it. (Initiated 48 days ago on 20 December 2015) Thanks, —Ojorojo (talk) 16:31, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Talk:Political correctness#Generally or primarily or something else[edit]

It was redated once and it's been ongoing for 54 days now, but discussion has pretty much died down. All of the monitors of Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Language and linguistics voted for a third option, "often": 1, 2, 3 and 4. Current article lead hasn't existed for very long so nothing is yet "stable". --Mr. Magoo and McBarker (talk) 23:57, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Kde crystalsvg eraser.png Undone I apologize for not explaining well enough but the point was to finally assess concensus as either or, not just closing it. I'll undo the closure in await for someone to actually decide either or. If there is no result it shall just be redated and reopened and the discussion and RfC continued because that is the proper procedure if there is no result yet, not closure. --Mr. Magoo and McBarker (talk) 09:48, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
Removed done tag so this will not be automatically archived by the bot. Cunard (talk) 05:31, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Please disposition Talk:Occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge#Proposed merge with Ammon Bundy. --Jax 0677 (talk) 18:29, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

@Jax 0677: From the perspective of closure, there's no need for the discussion to be kept on the current talk page. The closer should be able to find it, and may or may not choose to dearchive it at that time. After archiving, it may also be helpful to add a link to the ANRFC entry pointing to the new location.

Talk:British Empire#RfC: Should the term "superpower" be mentioned regarding the latter years of the British Empire?[edit]

Although its been up a week [1], the date in the RFC has been altered [2] to give the impression it has only just been started. N0n3up clearly doesn't accept a lack of consensus for his proposal and is opposing closure, I think this needs a neutral admin to review the discussion and sentence the closure (or not) as they deem appropriate. As a neutral 3rd party looking at some of the comments being made eg Do that, and it will be reverted. This act will be considered an aggression and the assertion that only he can close the RFC I can see trouble ahead. Hopefully a steely eyed admin can intervene and pour oil on troubled waters. Pinging @Snowded: to let him know I've done this. WCMemail 17:26, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Need a neutral review but even the RfC is tedious, the obsession with inserting superpower against consensus has been running for a coupe of months now. I didn't spot the change of date that really is gaming ----Snowded TALK 00:51, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
Wee Kudpung กุดผึ้ง, with all due respect, I would just like to say that this wouldn't had happened if Snowded and Juanriley (two of the stalkers who've constantly slithered towards my edits) wouldn't had been involved regardless of the outcome of the Rfc and discussions. Now personally, I am very accepting with others disagreeing and even reverting my edits. What I am not okay with is Snowded's constant stalking and manipulation of my edits. If you check the British Empire Talk page, you'll see that others didn't respond as much as Snowded did because he was constantly fighting back by constantly posting against my edits that almost looks like a backlash (if you want more examples of his and Juanriley's stalking, leave me a message in my talk page, I promise to take the time to list them all). Yes, I agree that the Rfc ws going for a couple of days, but recently I hadn't had the time to post up-to-date, and besides, it should be deleted in 20 days or so by a bot and not to mention that Wikipedia has no deadlines. (N0n3up (talk) 01:35, 29 January 2016 (UTC))
I would ordinarily have left the RFC to run for 30 days or more before resorting to here. The comments made by N0n3up with the bad faith accusations of "stalking" and manipulation not to mention the comments referenced above convinced me this was becoming toxic and required an admin to look at. I was very tempted to take this to WP:ANI. WCMemail 01:47, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
Wee Apparently you didn't look at the history involved in my previous post. I would normally concentrate on the topic in hand, but I felt that it was necessary to bring this into light because this dilemma had been one problem in the discussion page in BE talk page. I agree I shouldn't have posted this here and should've probably saved it for ANI. But if you think I posted in bad faith, you're wrong. I also covered the loose ends due to my lack of time and etc.. Again, recheck what I've said, I'm not accusing anyone, I'm simply stating what happened. I apologize for the inconvenience this provoked. (N0n3up (talk) 02:06, 29 January 2016 (UTC))
User:Wiki-Ed and User:Snowded have done an admirable job in trying to keep a well written article intact. On this particular issue I agree with them--though I think we have had disagreements in the past. I hesitated to post here (and there) lately because User:N0n3up will say I am stalking him. In fact, I think this is the first article we came to loggerheads on and lately again I have attempted to keep my presence minimal where and when he starts off on a tirade on other articles we both apparently watch. Juan Riley (talk) 02:24, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
Juan Riley First of all, save it for ANI, this is regarding the Rfc. Second, your edits in British Empire, United Kingdom and the American Civil War, France, Suez Crisis, List of pioneers in computer science and Treaty of Versailles say otherwise, All of which you began to edit since I started to edit in them, all beginning in British Empire. It's only a matter of finding your name in the edit history of each article. Again, this is regarding the Rfc, in which I made a mistake mentioning this. (N0n3up (talk) 02:35, 29 January 2016 (UTC))
Nuff said. Juan Riley (talk) 02:39, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
Anyhow, Kudpung thought it best to leave it here, just to get back in track of topic, think we went off rail a second there. (N0n3up (talk) 03:47, 29 January 2016 (UTC))

I recommend that the Rfc be allowed to run its (30-day) course. Then place a 1-year moratorium, upon closure of the Rfc. GoodDay (talk) 06:10, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

I agree with GoodDay here this is the most diplomatic way to handle this situation. Reb1981 (talk) 00:09, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard#RFC review request: Request for Comment: Country of Origin[edit]

This has been open for over a week. There's still some discussion, but at this point I think its productivity is coming to an end. The main complication is that an admin already attempted to resolve the dispute, but didn't actually close the discussion or provide an answer to the initial question. To help avoid any doubt in resolving this issue, I'd like to request that the closer explicitly note what the consensus is about the RfC being appealed. Thanks, Sunrise (talk) 09:28, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/United States presidential election, 2024[edit]

This AfD has been open for 18 days with the last !vote being registered more than 3 days ago, following a third relisting. After a thorough conversation with many excellent policy points on all sides, there is a slim majority of 24 !votes for Delete (53% of all opinions registered).

If I was closing that (which, mercifully, I'm not...), I'd close it as "No consensus" – there are valid points on both sides, and there is not a clear consensus in either direction... --IJBall (contribstalk) 04:26, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
