Looking for more eyes at Decline of newspapers[edit]

I'm a sporadic editor who cannot give this situation the attention it deserves. I would appreciate if someone could take a glance at Decline of newspapers and either chastise me for daring to edit anonymously or reassure me that I'm not completely off my rocker in my opinion that the article has tone issues (reading a bit more like a news feature than an encyclopedia article) and that the top image (diff) was superfluous (simply an image for the sake of an image if ever there was one, rather than a graph or a chart that might truly better depict the subject of that particular article) and captioned poorly.

Requested article: 1903 Tillman trial (politician who killed a journalist)[edit]

Principal characters in the Tillman trial

(I couldn't figure out how to add this to the requested articles template). This would be an interesting project for editors with enough time and resources: the 1903 Tillman trial / Killing of Narciso G. Gonzales: the "trial of the century" of South Carolina Lieutenant Governor James H. Tillman, who killed journalist Narciso Gener Gonzales. There is at least one modern book[1] that discusses it in depth, a couple websites for general info, [2],[3], and contemporary historic newspapers (e.g. Library of Congress). Cheers! --Animalparty!

Auto-assessment of article classes[edit]

Following a recent discussion at WP:VPR, there is consensus for an opt-in bot task that automatically assesses the class of articles based on classes listed for other project templates on the same page. In other words, if WikiProject A has evaluated an article to be C-class and WikiProject B hasn't evaluated the article at all, such a bot task would automatically evaluate the article as C-class for WikiProject B.

If you think auto-assessment might benefit this project, consider discussing it with other members here. For more information or to request an auto-assessment run, please visit User:BU RoBOT/autoassess. This is a one-time message to alert projects with over 1,000 unassessed articles to this possibility. ~ RobTalk 01:12, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Saket Suman[edit]

I do not usually edit articles on journalists, so am a bit unsure about what to do with this article and the connected Beyond Books. It all looks pretty spammy to me, but i4d appreciate IT if one or more editors more familiar with this kind of stuff could have a look at these articles. Thanks! --Randykitty (talk) 16:23, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
