what are retention periods of blp noticeboard archives[edit]

what are the retention periods - why is this controversial that my update was undone with no comment ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.190.73.149 (talk) 17:50, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

This list[edit]

Does anyone actually look at these issues to make a decision, or is information posted here so people can vent their frustration? The top one was added on 4 March 2015, two weeks ago. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 01:49, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Proposed style noticeboard[edit]

There is talk at the village pump about creating a noticeboard similar to this one for style issues. Right now, people tend to bring their style questions to WT:MoS and other talk pages: [1] [2]. They do not much disrupt business there, but there is some concern that people may not know where to go to get a clear answer about Wikipedia's policies regarding punctuation, capitalization, spelling, and other style issues. Proponents of the measure say that a noticeboard would be easier for people to find. Opponents of the measure argue that such a style board might facilitate forum shopping and drama. Contributions from users who have experience with Wikipedia's noticeboards would be very welcome. The proposal itself is at the Village Pump. A mockup of the style noticeboard is here.

Archiving of BLP/N[edit]

I'm a bit confused by the archiving settings for this noticeboard - was it intended to use both ClueBot III (set to 90 hours) and MiszaBot (set to 5 days). 90 hours seems quite a short archiving length of time. --  19:02, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

I think at one point in the past there was an issue with one of the archiving bots not working right, which might explain the duplication. I don't know what the deal would be with the apparent difference in the length of time though. Guy1890 (talk) 02:45, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
