Possible update on closing RFCs[edit]

I've started a discussion at Wikipedia:Village pump (policy)/Archive 121#Requesting closing statements for archived discussions about whether this page and/or WP:Talk page guidelines should be changed to discourage editors from making routine requests for closing statements to be added to archived discussions. The general idea is that if a discussion was archived weeks ago, and you don't actually care about the discussion or need help understanding the result (so excluding anyone dealing with a dispute related to that, etc.), then you should neither request nor provide a formal closing statement directly in the talk-page archives (where nobody will see it anyway).

If you have ideas about whether this page or TPG would be a better place to clarify the best practice or ideas of what the best practice is, then please join the discussion there. Thanks, WhatamIdoing (talk) 22:41, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Resolved

Hey so I just read a book and there isn't a page for the author. I've only been using wikipedia for about a week so I was wanting some help with making this page. I have gathered enough information about him to make a page I just lack the knowledge to do so. If you want to look at the author this is the link to his book i just downloaded. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B013H0ZVEO?keywords=James%20Yarrow&qid=1438821330&ref_=sr_1_2&sr=8-2 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Johnstubbs72 (talkcontribs) 01:08, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

"You must select editors from the list at random"[edit]

This wording is asking the unprovable -- I could easily select 6 names without researching them and just happen to select 6 people who, had I researched them, I would have known were going to pick my side in the dispute. The upshot is that to select a safely "random" list of users, I would have to research their POV in order to get a variety -- but at that point, it isn't random, is it?

For me, this wording makes using the service impossible. Iran nuclear weapons 2 (talk) 20:11, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
