Civil servants[edit]

David Bednar was notable as a theatre exec, in the corporate world. But his legacy is as general manager of an independent non profit corp, the Canadian National Exhibition Association. There's no category for government employees... Do I just put him under the businessperson section? -- Zanimum (talk) 21:34, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

There a politics and government category, which might be appropriate for civil servants? Cordless Larry (talk) 09:02, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. I'm not sure he's a "political figure", though. Would it be kosher to create a new subcategory of "Politics and government"? -- Zanimum (talk) 18:25, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, Zanimum, I missed your reply. Did you get this sorted? Cordless Larry (talk) 10:26, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Good articles in the Signpost[edit]

As you may know, we've started providing bare lists of GA promotions in the featured content section of the Signpost.

We're fine for this week, since the cutoff is always a week and a half before publication (otherwise, we'd have three days to do the work in), but we have a problem for next week: [Wikipedia:Version_1.0_Editorial_Team/Good_articles_by_quality_log&offset=&limit=500&action=history The good article log is corrupt after 12 April.] - I don't know if it'll resume sanity from the 16th, but the entries for the 13th and 14th are completely corrupt, and I suspect the 15th of being problematic as well.

So... anyone have any ideas? I'd prefer not to screw people out of recognition because the bot went crazy, but I've been depending on that for entries, and I'll have to drop the feature if I have to spend an entire day compiling them every week. Adam Cuerden (talk) 01:49, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Good Lists[edit]

There is a proposal to set up a new classification level, Good List. Please add your comments there. --Redrose64 (talk) 10:13, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Good article reassessment backlog[edit]

There is a backlog of articles waiting for community reassessment at Wikipedia:Good article reassessment, and DragonZero informs me that they're the only editor who has been closing these for the past year or so. That doesn't seem fair to me, so assistance from other editors would be welcome. Cordless Larry (talk) 17:19, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
