RfC on inclusion of awardee lists[edit]

An RfC is being held about the implications of WP:SELFPUB, WP:DUE, and other policies for whether lists of awardees may be included in awards articles. Since there are many Featured Lists on awards that include lists of the awardees, I thought this community could provide some guidance. Feedback would be appreciated.

Semi-protected edit request on 30 June 2018[edit]

Remove Random featured list at the left because it have in the {{FLpages}} Nhatminh01 (talk) 01:48, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

 Note: I agree, but there must be some reason. lets wait to get second opinion. regards, DRAGON BOOSTER 14:34, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
I agree with the request, and I agree that it could be there for a reason. Pinging the Featured List director and delegates Giants2008, PresN, The Rambling Man. ‑‑ElHef (Meep?) 18:10, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

The edit looks fine to me. The link appears in the FL tools, as the user who requested the change said, and it didn't really need to be featured in the summary anyway. Both WP:FA and WP:FP handle their random page links in a similar way, so the edit helps make the FL page consistent with the other processes in that regard.

Can a featured list divide to 2, 3, ... lists and they are featured list after division?[edit]

Nhatminh01 (talk) 00:24, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

So far, it's been rare enough (and every list different enough) that we've been taking it on a case-by-case basis. I presume you're talking about the List of The Simpsons guest stars / List of The Simpsons guest stars (season 1-20) split? I see that when promoted, it was seasons 1-23+movie, meaning that the current 21+ list has 3 seasons copied from the reviewed list and 6 not. The 12 paragraphs of prose are identical between the two. Frankly, I'd be willing to let both lists keep the star in this case. That said, I note that in both lists there are rows that are unreferenced, and that the prose ends with a "as of 2014" sentence even though the lead goes through 2018- these need to get cleaned up, or else both lists are potentials for being demoted. --PresN 02:27, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

Question on template attached to some lists[edit]

I've noticed that some lists on this page have the template {{FL/BeenOnMainPage}} attached to them. While it seems to ostensibly denote those that have been featured on the Main Page, more recent examples of such lists don't seem to have the template attached to them at all. Just out of curiosity, what purpose, if any, does this template then serve? RAVENPVFF | talk ~ 15:04, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

It's unclear- all it does is add an html tag to it; presumably for use by a bot? I just checked, and none have been added since at least March 2014, and scanning the edit comments the last I actually see are from 2012. And those were manual, so almost certainly missed stuff. I beleive that, whatever bot used this back in the day, nothing is using it now, and all of those tags should be removed. @Giants2008: - you do TFL scheduling; do you do anything with this template? --PresN 17:46, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
I don't do anything with it. It could potentially be more useful in a separate list of lists that have never appeared on TFL, but truth be told this page and article talk pages usually are sufficient for when I need to know if a list has already run. WP:FA also has these templates, though, so if a bot could make updates I wouldn't object to keeping them. Giants2008 (Talk) 22:06, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

RfC on content of awardee lists[edit]

There's an RfC going on at Talk:Feynman Prize in Nanotechnology#RfC on list format on whether lists of awardees should be in a table or bulleted list format, and whether they should contain photographs and other supplementary columns. This is an outgrowth of the previous RfC on whether awardee lists should be included at all. Again, since there are many Featured Lists on awards that include lists of the awardees, I thought this community could provide some guidance. Feedback would be appreciated!

There seems to be a strong push to ban these kinds of articles from using tables or including photographs. Feedback on this proposal would be appreciated. Antony–22 (talkcontribs) 04:46, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
