Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
Q: An article was erroneously tagged by a member of this project.
A: Do not remove the banner. Ask the member why they tagged it, or post a message at the project talk page (below). Note: the banner does not imply that the subject has a conservative or right-wing ideology, has no relevance to neutral POV, nor that WikiProject Conservatism owns the article.[1]
Q: I'm a member and the banner I added to an article talk page was removed.
A: From PROGGUIDE: You may not force them to remove the banner. No editor may prohibit a group of editors from showing their interest in an article. This warning {{UWCNSV-BANNER}} can be used to notify an editor of the guideline.
Q: Can non-members tag articles?
A: Yes, but if a member removes the banner do not replace it.[1]
Q: The quality or importance rating of an article is incorrect.
A: Anyone can change the rating. Make sure to consult the assessment scale here. Ratings are subjective, importance ratings in particular can be controversial. Disputes will be resolved by project members at the project talk page (below).[2][3]
Q: What is the scope of this WikiProject?
A: As stated on the main page of this project, we are dedicated to improving articles related to conservatism, not limited to any particular form or national variety of conservatism.

Alt-right sidebar[edit]

I posted this at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Politics a few days ago and haven't seen any response, so also adding it here in the hope that some additional experienced editors can evaluate what I perceive to be some fundamental issues with Template:Alt-right sidebar, which has recently been added to several articles. Many of the articles it includes look to me to have very little, if any, connection to the alt-right. It seems like it was entirely based on WP:OR, and the template creator has indicated on the talk page that he/she plans to remove items he/she disagrees with. My question for this group is whether you think it's an appropriate navigational template in general (i.e. whether it should be radically pruned, deleted, or incorporated into, say, Template:Conservatism US) or whether it should be sent to MfD. At this point, I'm leaning towards the latter, but I'm hesitating because it may be able to be reworked into something a bit better. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 21:22, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi Rhododendrites. I agree that the template has too broad of a scope, and is organized in an excessively opinionated way. Still, I think it is useful to have. By the way, what do people here think of creating a Wikiproject to meet the demand for encyclopedic coverage of the alt-right? Since alt-right emerged from dissatisfaction with conservatism, I think organizing from this Wikiproject is inadequate. Rigley (talk) 02:49, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Conservatism/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Conservatism.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Conservatism, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
