WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Missing awards lists[edit]

It appears that there are as of yet no lists for Obie Award for Distinguished Performance by an Actor or Obie Award for Distinguished Performance by an Ensemble. The only one which has been created is Obie Award for Distinguished Performance by an Actress. While not quite as well-known as the Tony Awards, the Obie Awards for Off-Broadway theatre have been around for several decades. It seems like this would be an important addition to make. --GentlemanGhost (converse) 03:06, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Yeah. It seems like the thing about such items is that the person most interested in the matter ends up creating the lists. That's been my personal experience. So if no one jumps on board, I suggest your enthusiasm for or interest in the matter indicates you are or may be the person for the job. :-) Softlavender (talk) 03:28, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
I was afraid you might say that. ;-) --GentlemanGhost (converse) 21:12, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

The removal of non notable awards on film articles[edit]

There is a discussion about the removal of non notable awards on film articles here, I would love comments and thoughts to finally reach a consensus about it. LADY LOTUSTALK 12:01, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

An RfC from that discussion: WT:FILM#RfC: Do list items need their own WP article in order to be sourced in list articles? Lapadite (talk) 14:16, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Mention of non-notable awards in pornography articles[edit]

There is a discussion on how to address non-notable awards in pornography articles: Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Pornography#Mention_of_non-notable_awards_in_articles. We'd appreciate help creating consensus on when and how such awards are mentioned in pornography biographies and related articles. Thank you. --Ronz (talk) 16:04, 13 May 2015 (UTC)


While cleaning up an infobox, I noticed that Template:Awards emboldens the name of the award, which doesn't seem to fit with MOS:BOLD. Before I propose removal of the bold markup from the template, I thought I ought to enquire here first to see if anybody knew a reason why the name of an award should be an exception to our manual of style. Any thoughts, please add to Template talk:Awards #Bold text. Thanks in advance, --RexxS (talk) 23:43, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Help needed at List of awards and nominations received by Hugh Jackman[edit]

Help and eyes needed at List of awards and nominations received by Hugh Jackman. Right now only two are listed (one award and one nomination), and all the others have been removed. And if you try to add the others back in, you get a block message that prevents that. The block message says: "Awards and nominations must have citations to reliable sources validating each and every award received. If this edit is not an attempt to add unsourced material related to awards and nominations, please report this error." Softlavender (talk) 14:03, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

I don't understand your problem, Softlavender. The message told you that you couldn't add the awards and nominations without providing citations to reliable source validating each and every award received. You didn't do that: instead, you just tried to trip the filter over and over. How about finding citations to reliable sources that validate each and every award you add and including them in your edit? Then, your edit will comply with WP:V and the filter won't block it.—Kww(talk) 14:10, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Kww, citations are not specifically absolutely required for each and every single award in a List article for an extremely notable person, unless there is actual reason to doubt their veracity -- these awards are all a matter of public record. Cf., for instance, List of awards and nominations received by Philip Seymour Hoffman, the awards listing for a Featured Article. Or List of awards and nominations received by Meryl Streep. I would appreciate it if you would restore the 60 awards and nominations you have removed from the article, and if you would also remove the edit-block. I do not believe that the edit-block is within Wikipedia policy; nor do I believe that removal of 60 awards and nominations without notice and without Talk-page discussion is within Wikipedia policy. If you want more citations, please place a tag on the article. Right now the article has only a single award and a single nomination, making the article highly inaccurate. I believe that blocking auto-confirmed editors from restoring mass deletions without a WP:RFPP by an uninvolved admin is against Wikipedia policy. Can you tell me who created that edit-block feature and under whose aegis/guidance/discussion? Softlavender (talk) 14:42, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
There's no reason to carry on identical conversations in parallel. This discussion is over at Talk:Hugh Jackman.—Kww(talk) 15:33, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Kww If you keep this up I'll be requesting a ban on you from award articles. Your editing is irresponsible and in poor judgement.♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:20, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
