Are lists copied from categories acceptable?[edit]

I believe that such list needs to be structured. An alphabetic copy doesn't help.

List of Memon people[edit]

The list is unstructured and unsourced.
There is a parallel category Category:Memon people. Do we need the same information in two forms?

List of palaces in Pakistan[edit]

The list is unstructured and unsourced.
There exists Category:Palaces in Pakistan.Xx236 (talk) 08:07, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
I agree with User:Postdlf, who points to NOTDUP, a section within wp:CLN, which is positive about having lists. Pretty much (not always), wherever there is a category, a list can be created. A list can include sources, photos, coordinates of places if any, additional information that can't be shown in a category. Sure, the List of palaces in Pakistan could be much improved, e.g. by drawing some information from each of the corresponding articles, e.g. perhaps the coordinates which could then be seen in a {{GeoGroup}} link. It could be tagged for improvement.
I don't agree that these list-articles are unsourced: there is sourcing in the linked articles which documents that the people are Memon and that the palaces are Pakistani. We don't have to duplicate sourcing for non-controversial info that is in list-articles, where links to get more information are obvious.
However I do agree that one adds value by structuring information better in a list-article. E.g. for List of fire stations which I am working on currently, I started by copying in contents of categories. Then I have done a lot of re-organizing by geographic areas. And I have one source for a lot of redlinks. It is already pretty good, I think. But it would be improved if I could add more info of some different kind, e.g. dates of construction, and all the individual places' photos, in a big table. Have to start somewhere though. :) --Doncram (talk) 06:44, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

List of people from Sardinia[edit]

Poorly sourced.
Who is from Sardinia? Wally Schirra? His paternal grandparents were from Bavaria and Switzerland, and originally of Sardinian ancestry

Tv show template not rendering[edit]

Slight emergency:

List of Frontline (PBS) episodes

See the bottom few seasons. They don't render.

I put one of the seasons into a sandbox and it renders fine: User:Anna Frodesiak/Gold sandbox.

Click edit for the whole page, then preview save. There's a red error message.

Is the total page size too big or something? Many thanks. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 23:02, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

List of years in xxxx articles[edit]

FYI: Pointer to relevant discussion elsewhere.

Opinions needed[edit]

I created the List of music museums and soon afterwards it became under attack. Someone wanted to have it deleted and argues now that the list could not contain museums that have no article on Wikipedia. Two other people claim that all museums on the list should be sourced. One of them has yet tried to erase part of the list twice (infringing WP:LISTN) and the other one started an edit war on it. At AfD (the list survived there) and the talk page, some people disagree with these opponents. Nevertheless these people assume as they have reached consensus, and the aren't susceptible for arguments. Although I have been sourcing the rest of the list now, I still feel insecure what their next step will be. This is not my home wiki and I have never experienced so much opposition against such a good portion of work. I would like to ask you people to put the page on the watchlist and discuss on the talk page too and to share your knowledge of Wikipedia lists on Talk:List of music museums. In my view I have done more than could have been expected from me, according to WP:LISTN. Ymnes (talk) 12:17, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Featured quality source review RFC[edit]

Editors in this WikiProject may be interested in the featured quality source review RFC that has been ongoing. It would change the featured article candidate process (FAC) so that source reviews would need to occur prior to any other reviews for FAC. Your comments are appreciated. --IznoRepeat (talk) 21:51, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

List of towns and cities with 100,000 or more inhabitants and an updated list[edit]

Hello. I'm here because I'm seeking assistance regarding the article and its subpages. I'm creating an updated list for the page which takes data from the latest UN demographic yearbook (the current pages are using an outdated yearbook), however I've run into multiple problems:

  • The amount of redlinks on the page: where's the correct page for each? I am unable to find this info using other lists nor the page in question.
  • Missing data: I only created the table from the section in the yearbook minus the odd ones out, yet it doesn't appear to have all the cities from some countries where census data meets the list requirements, i.e. China. Are there sources I can use to verify this information?
  • Incorrect links This one I'll handle myself once the first two problems are resolved.

Thanks for any assistance provided! Jalen D. Folf (talk) 17:45, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
