Requests for Comment


Talk:1982 Lebanon War

Should the casualties section include this statement?

In 1984, Lebanese Brig. Gen. Mohamad El Haj stated that "about 1,000 Lebanese died as a result of the Israeli invasion.[1][2]

References

  1. ^ "Lebanon Demands Payment". The Los Angeles Times. November 16, 1984. 
  2. ^ Walsh, Edward (November 16, 1984). "Lebanon, Israel Resume Talks on Troop Pullout". The Washington Post. 

Survey

  • No: Firstly, with a ton of books and scholarly sources on this topic stating that up to 20,000 people died in the war, this WP:FRINGE claim is only supported by two unclear newspaper reports at the time. Secondly, even the source cited states that it was unclear as to which category of people El Haj was talking about (did it include the seige of Beirut etc.). The source notes that this is an exceptional statement not made by any Lebanese official before or since (see the discussion here for a full quote from the source). Lastly, the statement is illogical because not only Lebanese, but Palestinians also died in the war. Kingsindian  22:29, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Same-sex marriage in the United States

Status of same-sex marriage in the United States1
  Same-sex marriage legal
  Same-sex marriage legalization pending, but not yet in effect2
  Same-sex marriage banned, despite Supreme Court precedent that same-sex marriage bans are unconstitutional
  Same-sex marriage status complicated3,4

1 Native American tribal jurisdictions have laws pertaining to same-sex marriage independent of state law. The federal government recognizes same-sex marriages, regardless of the current state of residence. Same-sex marriage will be de jure legal nationwide (except maybe American Samoa) per U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges.
2 According to an executive order, government agencies in Puerto Rico must comply with the Supreme Court ruling within 15 days of it.
3 Same-sex marriage licensed in every county of Kansas, but the state does not yet recognize same-sex marriages.
4It is not clear whether or not the Supreme Court's precedent applies to American Samoa.


Should the map on the left stay on this article? (Btw, this has already been discussed a little bit here). Prcc27 (talk) 10:47, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Balochistan, Pakistan

Should this article on Balochistan, Pakistan contain content related to insurgencies and the independence movement, poverty, and allegations of human rights violations in the region? And if so, how much of this content should be presented?

Note: A previous RfC had been opened, but there were some unfortunate sockpuppetry issues and strikethroughs which rendered the original RFC extraordinarily difficult to understand. However, the question the original user posed (in spite of the sockpuppetry) I think is worth discussing:

Should article have section on independence movement? As is important part of region.

There have been several insurgencies since the creation of Pakistan. Since 2005 another has been ongoing, and the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority has blocked hundreds of websites created by nationalists and those calling for secession or political autonomy such as the Baloch Hal, which has been banned since 2009, and those documenting human rights atrocities. This insurgency has been suppressed by the use of extrajudicial executions and torture.[1][2]

Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 04:49, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:WikiProject LGBT studies

Recognition of same-sex unions in Oceania, Recognition of same-sex unions in Europe, Recognition of same-sex unions in South America and Recognition of same-sex unions in North America articles includes the tables listing jurisdictions legally recognising same-sex relationships. Each article has the different version of the table. Perhaps we should adopt one version for all of them. PS: If I did something wrongly in making this request, then I'm sorry. Ron 1987 (talk) 04:29, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Talk:United States

Should the Wall Street Journal graphic at [1] be adapted for inclusion in the article? 02:57, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Poland

Relisting this RfC after the close review at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard#Where is Poland? (permanent link). Cunard (talk) 17:31, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Same-sex marriage in the Pitcairn Islands

Should Same-sex marriage in the Pitcairn Islands be re-directed to Same-sex marriage in the United Kingdom? Me-123567-Me (talk) 20:52, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Thomas Piketty

@Xcuref1endx, Oceanflynn, Xcuref1endx, Volunteer Marek, Annihilation00, Nomoskedasticity, and Jimjilin:The following paragraph was removed with the comment 'Following a different editor's suggestion', diff:

A study by Emmanuel Saez and Piketty showed that the top 10 percent of earners took more than half of the country’s total income in 2012, the highest level recorded since the government began collecting the relevant data a century ago.ref 1ref 2

The study referred to by the New Times and New York post is available online here (for different versions {2006, 2013} see section above).

The RfC is about two questions.

  1. Should the study be mentioned in the article? (answer: include, or keep removed)
  2. If yes to question 1, should the removed paragraph be used or something else? 10:42, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Brian Leiter

How much of the controversy section should be reflected in the lede and are there issues with Reliable Sources and Neutral Point of View throughout the article? Sneekypat (talk) 21:09, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Tony Abbott

Currently, File:Tony Abbott - 2010.jpg is used as an infobox image; it was taken in 2010 (five years ago). Shall we keep or replace the infobox image? --George Ho (talk) 09:47, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Bias in reporting on North Korea by Western news media

Does this title follow WP:article titles? If not, what is your suggested title? --George Ho (talk) 19:55, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Soka Gakkai

In the section on “Schism and Excommunication, 1990-1997” the text reads “ the cause of the split was the friction between hierarchical tradition and democratic modernity”. Could anyone specify of what democratic elements this is an indication of? Many Christian Protestant congregations are organised in a more Democratic fashion than SGI is. At this point we need more than just dubious sources speaking of a so called “democratic modernity” but of sources proving a “democratic modernity” in practise.

The source cited only states a REVIEW on a book and does not cite the book nor a scholar per se on the subject. Ongoing talk page discussions did not help to define how democracy is defined within SG/SGI. Even though RfC’s on SG/SGI do not really catch a lot of attention these days I will try my luck.--Catflap08 (talk) 17:04, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Kosovo

Pursuant to this move discussion from 2014 and the following merge discussion, which ended with the Republic of Kosovo moving to Kosovo, should Kosovo be described in the lead sentence of this article as
  1. A sovereign state
  2. A disputed territory
  3. A partially recognised state

or a combination of either #1 and #2, or of #2 and #3? If a combination, please indicate what order you think the two/three should be in. Feel free to add any other suggestions. Red Slash 06:54, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Carlos Latuff

Should the statement that some of Latuff's cartoons have been called antisemetic be included in the lede? 15:26, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Copyfraud

Does the "Evil Publishers" image belong in the article? Light show (talk) 04:41, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Political positions of Jeb Bush

For each subsection of this article, should the present position be summarized before discussing how it evolved?Anythingyouwant (talk) 15:01, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Derry

An attempt to execute an RFC that offers users a chance to explain their reasoning opposed to the previous RFC which was poorly explained. I believe as it stands that the page no longer holds a neutral stance in the naming dispute, with many drive by editors expressing the same concern.
Possible options for this page:
a. Title:Derry - nothing changes
b. Title:Derry with infobox official_name=Londonderry(only)
c. Title:Derry~Londonderry as used by City of Culture page - www.cityofculture2013.com (or an equivalent Derry/Londonderry)
d. Title:Londonderry - use the official name as is common with this template at Newcastle upon Tyne and Kingston upon Hull
e. Title:Derry, Northern Ireland
And as before but the article lead is somewhat bias. The original compromise on the naming dispute had the lead beginning with Londonderry. If you look at Newcastle upon Tyne. Official_name as Article header, Lead: Official_name commonly known as Common_name. Kingston upon Hull has Official_name as Article header, Lead:Common_name officially known as Official_name. It seems only here where Common_name is both the Article name and article lead. Someone has clearly gone out of their way to set hierarchy and go against the original compromise.
I think that it is also worth noting that the Council is no longer known as Derry City Council, following the formation of the super councils.Dubs boy (talk) 21:11, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Dennis Hastert

Should the lead mention that the allegations were about "sexual abuse", or just mention "abuse" and let readers find the details in the article body? 00:07, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Wales Green Party

Should the article be deleted or improved? If the latter, how do we go about it? Frinton100 (talk) 08:00, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Hillary Clinton

Should we impose a moratorium on page moves on Hillary Clinton during the 2015-2016 campaign season? BusterD (talk) 13:56, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Military of ISIL

143.176.216.29 (talk) 08:11, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:French colonial empire

When should we say the French colonial empire ended, 1946 or 1980? 03:51, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Debate on the monarchy in Canada

How should polling on the Canadian monarchy and royal family be presented? 05:22, 7 June 2015 (UTC)
