Disability in the media[edit]

I'm considering putting this article through WP:GAN, but before I do so I'd appreciate it if a media specialist would take a good hard look at the article to see if there are any major gaps or issues that need to be addressed before GAN. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 07:59, 10 August 2017 (UTC)


I have started a draft for the web media company Digiday, on the theory that news sources frequently referenced by Wikipedia should themselves have articles. We have several hundred articles that reference Digiday, and the source is quoted by many other media sources such as CNN,[1], [2] and Fox News.[3], [4] Can someone knowledgeable in the field see what can be done with this? bd2412 T 14:58, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Opinions are needed on the following matter: Wikipedia talk:Talk page guidelines#RfC: Should the guideline discourage interleaving? #2. A permalink for it is here. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 19:37, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

Ideology of Drudge Report[edit]

You are invited to participate in the RfC at Talk:Drudge Report#RfC: Should the article say that Drudge Report has been described as far-right?. (I am not watching this page, so please ping me if you want my attention.) --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 19:24, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation links on pages tagged by this wikiproject[edit]

Wikipedia has many thousands of wikilinks which point to disambiguation pages. It would be useful to readers if these links directed them to the specific pages of interest, rather than making them search through a list. Members of WikiProject Disambiguation have been working on this and the total number is now below 20,000 for the first time. Some of these links require specialist knowledge of the topics concerned and therefore it would be great if you could help in your area of expertise.

A list of the relevant links on pages which fall within the remit of this wikiproject can be found at

Please take a few minutes to help make these more useful to our readers.— Rod talk 17:04, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Edit-warring over infobox: newspaper vs. website[edit]

A user is edit-warring in an article about a news website trying to put Infobox newspaper instead of website. See: Talk:The Times of Israel#RfC on infobox. --Triggerhippie4 (talk) 21:45, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

  • I reverted Triggerhippie4's changes back to a long standing version of the article, which uses the "newspaper" template for "online newspaper". Triggerhippie4 reverted the revert several times, but neither of us has violated the 3-revert rule (or 1-revert rule per WP:ARBPIAINTRO). There is now a RfC on this issue [5].
