Adding banner to articles start with List of[edit]

Is anyone here adding list articles to this WikiProject? I just added a couple of dozen articles all of which started with List of. Surely this is something a BOT can do? Am I making sense? Ottawahitech (talk) 13:33, 23 October 2016 (UTC)please ping me

  • @Ottawahitech: Perhaps this is something Ser Amantio di Nicolao could help with? It should be simple, though many alphabetical lists are already tagged with Wikipedia:WikiProject Indexes. Index is pseudonymous with list according to Oxford so I don't really know why we have WP Lists and WP Indexes and not just WP Lists. Probably wouldn't hurt to have lists tagged with both projects. Shouldn't be hard for Ser Amantio di Nicolao to get everything that starts with "List of" tagged with {{WikiProject Lists|class=list|importance=}}. lNeverCry 06:45, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/Shannen Doherty filmography/archive1[edit]

I have nominated Shannen Doherty filmography , and I would greatly appreciate it if any of you could take a look and leave your comments. Aoba47 (talk) 17:21, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

@Aoba47: Pardon my ignorance, but why is this wp:article called a wp:list? The introduction is all about the actress, not the list? Ottawahitech (talk) 17:08, 5 November 2016 (UTC)please ping me
  • @Ottawahitech: I am not sure what you mean by the above comment. I have modeled this list after similar lists of actor's filmographies, such as James Franco filmography, Jessica Chastain on screen and stage, etc. The lead will of course be about Shannen Doherty as the list is about her filmography/work. The lead specifically focuses on Doherty's appearances in film, television, and other mediums, which is covered in the list itself. Aoba47 (talk) 19:39, 5 November 2016 (UTC)
@Aoba47: I am not sure myself what the wiki-rules are in respect to wp:featured lists. As an amateur I only wonder why there is so much duplicate information between the article Shannen Doherty and the list Shannen Doherty filmography? Who makes sure that both the list and the article are kept up-to-date? Ottawahitech (talk) 16:11, 6 November 2016 (UTC)please ping me
  • @Ottawahitech: I am still not entirely sure what you are referring to in your above comments, but I will try my best to answer both of your questions:
  • 1) I take issue with your wording of "duplicate information" as it is implying that I copied-and-pasted, or took sentences/information directly from the Shannen Doherty article, which would be incorrect. I would suggest you read through similar lists pertaining to an actor's filmography. The list of an actor's filmography contains information exclusively about his or her performances across multiple forms of media (film, television, stage work, web series, etc.), while the main article about the actor contains more information. The main article would include information about his or her acting career, but would also have information about the actor's early life and personal life, his or her work outside of film (several actors have music careers, or are prominent activists), any awards or nominations the actor received, and the actor's appearance in the public media. For instance, I would suggest comparing the differences between Angelina Jolie and Angelina Jolie filmography. The filmography page exclusively covers Jolie's film, television, music video, and video game appearances, while the main article on Jolie covers a lot more. I believe that a filmography page is appropriate for Doherty as she has been in enough programs to justify a separate page. The difference between the main Doherty page and the Doherty filmography page may not be as obvious as that for Jolie, because the main Doherty page is not in the greatest of conditions. However, you should still be able to see that the information about Doherty's personal life is absent from the filmography page, so there is a difference between the two of them. I apologize for the long response to the first question, but I thought I might as well go through everything from my point of view.
  • 2) Regarding your question "Who makes sure that both the list and the article are kept up-to-date?", that applies to every single article and list on Wikipedia. It is up to the contributors/users to keep the articles up-to-date and correct, so I do not see how this is an issue directly related to this list. Aoba47 (talk) 18:11, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
@Aoba47: Please don’t read more into my words than what I said. I am not trying to insinuate anything in regards to your editing. Films and actors are a subject I rarely seek out at Wikipedia, and I was surprised to see how well this area is organized. Actually I wanted to thank you for educating me and other editors following this thread about Filmographies which as I found out are a specialized type of wp:Timelines.. More at another date (if I can find the time). Ottawahitech (talk) 16:50, 11 November 2016 (UTC)please ping me
  • @Ottawahitech: I was only responding to your message. As I have previously said, this list was created and organized around FL for other actors' discographies. I am not sure if that is anything else that I can add about this. Aoba47 (talk) 18:29, 11 November 2016 (UTC)

Stand-alone lists being nominated as Good Articles[edit]

--Redrose64 (talk) 22:58, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Note that one of the three proposals in this RfC involves creating a separate "Good Lists" rating and process independent of the GA process. BlueMoonset (talk) 18:16, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

A number of page moves[edit]

That's my school there, on the right. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 03:27, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

This is about removing " the world" from articles.

Could a few editors please go to Talk:List of oldest schools#Move and weigh in? I would ask editors from the RfC, but they were all supports, so it would not be neutral. Many thanks. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 02:58, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

@Anna Frodesiak: What are weighing in on again? That there's only one world? Ah well, what's time for if not wasting? Face-wink.svg lNeverCry 03:19, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
Hi INeverCry. I don't even know anymore. I was taught at the West NGC 5195 School for Slow Children, so don't ask me. :) Anna Frodesiak (talk) 03:27, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
Wait. There's a school there? I may have to reconsider my agreement on this one... lNeverCry 03:31, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
In that galaxy? There are zillions of schools, most of them utter rubbish. In fact, that whole galaxy is considered rubbish according to Galaxy Millenially magazine. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 03:37, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
Well, if Wikipedia ever starts a list of the shittiest, most broken down schools right here on our own cruddy ball of rock, I've got a few to add to the list... lNeverCry 06:20, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
Good point. Take Detroit's Rubbish High for example. What a dump! With a name like that, they were just asking for it. They were going to name it after John D. Winner but decided to honor Chuck Rubbish. Bad call. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 06:30, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Mass removal of "in the world" from articles[edit]

I am posting here for the archival record because discussions happened at multiple pages at different times:

Nomination of List of YouTubers for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of YouTubers 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 YouTubers 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. Oliverrushton (talk) 17:15, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

List "of buildings" appropriate, or only if they are "notable buildings"?[edit]

"Applications of" articles[edit]

There seem to be a number of 'Applications of' type articles in Wikpedia, and as far as I can see they should be treated as 'List of uses of' articles. Is there some standard about variants of 'list of' like this, and are there a number of other ways of saying 'list of' used in WIkipedia? Dmcq (talk) 10:51, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

List of cider brands[edit]

This list is a walking advertisement. It should be cleaned up thoroughly and all redlinks removed. As I see it, references do not belong there but in their respective articles,and any entry without an article should go. If there is no opposition, or discussion, or interest, I will remove all redlinks and clean this spammy-mess myself in a few days time. Opinions, and help,would be appreciated. -- Alexf(talk) 10:22, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
