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 Death/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Death.

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 Death, 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)

How to describe the Emmett Till case in the lead sentence of the Emmett Till article[edit]

Findagrave citation (2017)[edit]

Is Findagrave a reliable source to reference a person's death? SWP13 (talk) 00:04, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

No. The matter has been discussed so often and with such consistent conclusions that FindAGrave has been added to WP:PEREN as a site to avoid using as a source. (talk) 00:13, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

Proposal for a Cemetery Task Force[edit]

I think this project might benefit by separating Cemetery articles and lists - and having them in a dedicated task force - rather than just the Death tag and area - any thoughts ?? JarrahTree 03:12, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

"Died by suicide" instead of "committed suicide"[edit]

I know it's fairly pedantic, but I think there should be a shift in language when talking about suicide. At the very least, many of the categories could be updated to use better words. ~ Amalas rawr =^_^= 19:14, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
