List of awards and nominations received by Lady Gaga[edit]

@WP:FLC director and delegates: Hey there FLC delegates I have a question for you. As I understand that for the artist/actor/musician awards list we are prescribing for the compact layout as recently aligned in List of awards and nominations received by Meghan Trainor. Seeing this I want to update the above Lady Gaga awards list. My question is would I need to have a FLReview for this since it will be significantly changed? —IB [ Poke ] 15:43, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

@IndianBio: It's the same information, just combined into a single table, right? I don't think you need a formal review, just make sure that the sorting functionality works correctly. You can ask here for an informal review once you're done if you want. --PresN 15:48, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes PresN, just consolidating all the content into one table. I personally don't think a formal review is needed either. SNUGGUMS (talk / edits) 17:49, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
Agree, updating it is a fine idea and in my opinion will not detract in any sense from its featured status. No need for re-review, although I'm happy to give it a once-over if that would make things more "formal". The Rambling Man (talk) 11:59, 8 December 2018 (UTC)
I don't think an FLRC is needed either. Be bold and make the changes, and if there are any issues they can be addressed in the normal editing process. Giants2008 (Talk) 22:30, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks guys :) —IB [ Poke ] 11:19, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

Second nom[edit]

Header in FLC page says Users should not add a second featured list nomination until the first has gained substantial support and reviewers' concerns have been substantially addressed. My current nomination is List of Indian Nobel laureates and its been in the queue for almost two months and gained three supports. So is it possible for me to nominate another FLC now? Thanks in advance. The Herald (Benison) (talk) 16:08, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

I say go ahead with the second nomination as long as it's not another "List of XXXX nation's Nobel laureates" page, because at least one editor has questioned that list's stand-alone status and it would be best to have that concern resolved before nominating another similar list at FLC. Otherwise, you have my blessing, for what it's worth. Giants2008 (Talk) 01:56, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. It's actually a different one. The Herald (Benison) (talk) 15:43, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

My annual notice[edit]

Hello everyone. As is usual for me this time of year, my busy season in real life is coming up and I won't be doing as many closures for the next few months. The delegates, and the rest of the FLC community, have done a fine job picking up the slack the last few years in similar circumstances, and I have full confidence that you will all do just as well this year. I'll still be around to keep TFL populated and will try to sneak in a closure every once in a while, if time permits. Cheers. Giants2008 (Talk) 01:08, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

Awards notability[edit]

Hi @WP:FLC director and delegates: correct me if I am wrong, but we generally do not add awards to lists which do not have article in Wikipedia and hence are deemed non-notable. I'm asking because an IP user is adding continuously something called the Gaygalan awards in the Lady Gaga awards featured list, although the award does not seem to have any article in Wikipedia. The award is given by some Swedish magazine called QX and does not even seem to note the award. Both WP:GNG and WP:N applies here I feel and have removed the award but the IP insists its notable. —IB [ Poke ] 10:08, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

Well generally it's fair to say that I will always oppose award lists that contain awards which aren't considered notable by virtue of not having a Wikipedia article. But unfortunately, what happens to lists post-promotion is really outside of the bailiwick of the FLC director and delegates. The Rambling Man (talk) 11:50, 8 February 2019 (UTC)
Yes I agree, and that's what I have been trying to maintain here. —IB [ Poke ] 13:26, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

New nomination?[edit]

I have List of Sites of Special Scientific Interest in Norfolk with 4 supports and List of Local Nature Reserves in Surrey with 3 supports. Would it be OK for me to nominate a new list? Dudley Miles (talk) 12:22, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Yes. And at some point I'll try to get a round of closures in. The Rambling Man (talk) 12:56, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
