Nomination of List of films featuring whitewashed roles for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of films featuring whitewashed roles is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of films featuring whitewashed roles until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Changes to Globalization categories[edit]

A user who is not a member of the Globalization project has been making changes to the category structure of Category:Globalization. I have been trying unsuccessfully to communicate to Marcocapelle (talk) that, because of the inherent inter- and multi-disciplinary nature of the topic, there is a lot of intersection with categories of related WikiProjects. Currently, comments would be welcome on a proposed re-name of Category:Sociocultural globalization (a major aspect of and 2nd tier level of the Globalization category) at Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2016_May_28#Category:Sociocultural_globalization. Thank you in advance. Regards, Meclee (talk) 14:54, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

A recap of a question by Marcocapelle (talk) on the linked page "* So, to summarize, in this list of five, I'm missing the demographic aspect, while I think Business and Workforce should be part of Economic, just like Category:Business economics and Category:Labor economics are part of Category:Economics."
Demographics are included under the Sociocultural aspect of Globalization. As per the Globalization article, economics has to do solely with the interdependence of national economies; Business has to do with corporate businesses (management) and international trade regulations; labor/workforce has to do with the employment regulations, conditions, and social status of those employed in multinational, international, and other export-related businesses and related precarious employment. To understand these differences, I refer you to the Globalization article. If you wish to re-organize and re-write that article as well as re-organize the categories, I suggest those are separate proposals that should be posted in the appropriate areas. I should mention that this may also entail re-writing and or re-organization of other important articles related to Globalization. Regards, Meclee (talk) 16:09, 29 May 2016 (UTC)
  • Fair enough to align the structure of the article accordingly, though let's first wait for other reactions. Marcocapelle (talk) 16:15, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

I am gutting the globalization article[edit]

Figured this declaration may draw some attention :) See Talk:Globalization: bottom line, the article has acumulated a lot of irrelevant content - multidue of sections that are off topic, in essence being formatted like "Globalization is connected to Foo-concept. Now, let's forget globalization and summarize the Foo-concept in question... " Some of them do not even mention the word globalization at all! There may be some salvagable content in some of them, but frankly, I feel that TNTing them and restoring a more pure version of the article is the way to go. I invite interested editors to discuss things in the article's talk page at Talk:Globalization#Structure:_economy.2C_politics_and_culture and subsequent sections. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 06:58, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

Magic Wand Icon 229981 Color Flipped.svg

Greetings WikiProject Globalization Members!

This is a one-time-only message to inform you about a technical proposal to revive your Popular Pages list in the 2016 Community Wishlist Survey that I think you may be interested in reviewing and perhaps even voting for:

If the above proposal gets in the Top 10 based on the votes, there is a high likelihood of this bot being restored so your project will again see monthly updates of popular pages.

Further, there are over 260 proposals in all to review and vote for, across many aspects of wikis.

Thank you for your consideration. Please note that voting for proposals continues through December 12, 2016.

Best regards, SteviethemanDelivered: 18:00, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
