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.

Hard Choices, new article about book on climate change in Canada[edit]

I've created a new article about the book on climate change in Canada, titled, Hard Choices: Climate Change in Canada.

Help with suggesting additional secondary sources would be appreciated at the article's talk page, at Talk:Hard Choices (Coward book).

Thank you,

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.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 14:26, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

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)
