Can someone help me edit/create a page on Hammerton Killick?[edit]

Can someome help me edit/create a page called Killick? I need help doing it because I want to add a bunch to it, but I Don't have a lot of time on my hands, so can you help me please? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Coolpug05 (talkcontribs) 22:26, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Are redirects non-articles?[edit]

The sidebar listing categories (at {{Wider attention}}) distinguishes between article (mainspace) and non-article categories. Redirects and disambiguation pages are in mainspace, but they are not articles; which area do they fall under? — (talk) 10:25, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

I’m going to assume that “articles” means actual articles, as opposed to every page in article space. I’m editing that table to make it more clear. If I’m wrong, then please, someone explain what was originally meant. — (talk) 01:43, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
They really form their own separate area. At WT:SAL, we refer to them as "Navigational pages" (as their purpose is purely to help readers navigate around Wikipedia)... to distinguish them from "Informational pages" (actual articles and lists that present information). Would this distinction help clarify what you are talking about? Blueboar (talk) 14:26, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
Yes, if such a distinction was meant in the list here. But as I later said, the “non-article” categories are in practice used for informational pages as well, so I suppose my original question is kind of irrelevant. — (talk) 21:26, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Since editors do use the “non-article” RFC categories (especially style) on article Talk pages… would there be any objection to removing that restriction from the listing? — (talk) 05:40, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Late post, but: I did. They’re now sectioned into categories of article topics and overall project categories, rather than categories allowed on articles and ones not. If I’m misunderstanding either current practice or the intent of the previous headings (or both), please explain here and consider clarifying on the page. — (talk) 07:13, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Requested move notice[edit]

You know that list of RFC issues by topic area? That’s transcluded from the Template: namespace. I’ve asked for it to be moved to a subpage of this page. Please comment there. — (talk) 10:13, 4 February 2015 (UTC)


You're a really helpful site; couldn't make it without ya! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:39, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

RfC: Consensus on band timeline colour schemes[edit]

Could we please discuss different band timeline colour schemes and reach a consensus? Thanks – 4TheWynne(talk)(contribs) 04:29, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Just a note: This talk page may not be the best place for this discussion. I’m not even sure what the topic is. If this is about musical band articles, I suggest WT:WikiProject Music. — (talk) 18:25, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
