GLAM OBC: Press and Media Freedom in Central, East and South East Europe[edit]

I'd like to tell you about the start of the Wikipedia:GLAM/OBC project: from October to March I will be hosted as Wikipedian-in-residence by Osservatorio Balcani e Caucaso (Rovereto, Italy) and I will devote myself to the improvement of the articles abour press and media freedom in Central, East and South East Europe - as well as to the build-up of OBC's own capacities to contribute autonomously to Wikipedia in the future. I'd thus be happy to work together with the WikiProject Freedom of speech, and with anyone who would like to collaborate on the same themes.

To start with, I have a question for you. I've seen that most European countries have an article "Censorship in X", while only a couple of them (Denmark, basically) also have a separate article "Freedom of the press in X". In most cases, though, the issue covered have more to do with freedom of the press than with censorship alone. I was going to create new articles about the countries at stake (as I've done with Serbia), but before starting I'd like to hear from you about this.--Davide Denti (OBC) (talk) 15:24, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

That sounds like an excellent idea, Davide Denti (OBC), thank you for stopping by this WikiProject!!! — Cirt (talk) 16:28, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Cirt; to start with, I've developed Censorship in Serbia and I am currently working on Media in Serbia. Whoever wishes to help along, just let me know.--Davide Denti (OBC) (talk) 16:39, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks so much, those look great so far ! — Cirt (talk) 16:42, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

I've also created the Template:Serbian Newspapers; can someone help me ask for its inclusion in all the relevant linked pages?--Davide Denti (OBC) (talk) 10:39, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

When in doubt, you can post a neutrally-worded suggestion to the relevant article talk pages and WikiProject talk pages. — Cirt (talk) 16:53, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Media Freedom in Europe: development proposal[edit]

In the framework of the GLAM OBC project, I am currently developing a series of articles on "Media in <country X>", to be followed by a series on "Media freedom in <country X>" (including issues such as censorship, protection of journalists, etc). Both series concern in particular the countries of East and South-east Europe (Balkans, Turkey, Caucasus, post-Soviet space). I am now drafting the project for the following years, and I was considering planning to develop a series of more specific articles on four specific issues: (1) media concentration; (2) transparency of media ownership; (3) access to public information; (4) censorship and self-censorship. This would be, again, for the 20/25 countries of East and South-east Europe, as well as one thematic article for coordination. I'd be glad to receive your feedback on this idea, and also to get help in order to cover the West&South Europe space too.--Davide Denti (OBC) (talk) 12:01, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

ECPMF article proposal[edit]

Dears, I'm thinking about creating a Wikipedia article concerning the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF). Before drafting the page, though, I would like to have your opinion on whether the subject already meets the notability criteria. Thank you, --Davide Denti (OBC) (talk) 15:28, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

That would often come up while the article is being built. Notability is not always established a priori. int21h (talk · contribs · email) 01:23, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
I know, but I was looking for an advice on the subject itself before drafting the article.--Davide Denti (OBC) (talk) 10:05, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
I'll try to have a look to see if there's secondary source coverage. — Cirt (talk) 14:03, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, meanwhile I've created the ECPMF article.--Davide Denti (OBC) (talk) 19:11, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

Please help populate Category:Censored media[edit]

Please help populate this new category. Thanks! PS. If you'd like to discuss this category, I suggest doing so at Talk:Censorship#New_related_category:_Category:Censored_media. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 04:22, 25 February 2016 (UTC)

Icon still appropriate?[edit]

Current icon

The current icon of this WikiProject refers to a controversy that happened many years ago, and isn't very recognizable. Does anybody have suggestions for a better one? --Laber□T 19:37, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
