Request for comment on Biographies of living people
Hello Wikiproject! Currently there is a discussion which will decide whether wikipedia will delete 49,000 articles about a living person without references, here:
Since biographies of living people covers so many topics, nearly all wikiproject topics will be effected.
The two opposing positions which have the most support is:
- supports the deletion of unreferenced articles about a living person, User:Jehochman
- opposes the deletion of unreferenced articles about a living person, except in limited circumstances, User:Collect
Comments are welcome. Keep in mind that by default, editor's comments are hidden. Simply press edit next to the section to add your comment.
Please keep in mind that at this point, it seems that editors support deleting unreferenced article if they are not sourced, so your project may want to pursue the projects below.
I've made a comment at Wikipedia talk:Notability (people)#Creative professionals guidelines pertaining to notability criteria for writers. I think members of this project (particularly those interested in contemporary poetry and living poets) could bring valuable perspectives to the discussion. Cynwolfe (talk)

Expanding project classes
The poetry template currently uses the limited classes so Category:NA-Class Poetry articles is filled with almost 1900 pages of categories, redirects and the like. If the template was expanded to use those categories, drafts like Draft:Peace (poem) could be more easily identified in a separate Category:Draft-Class Poetry articles. Would people opposing implementing that? -- Ricky81682 (talk) 07:26, 30 June 2016 (UTC)
New walled garden: Poetic encyclopaedist school, Yin Xiaoyuan, Shan Shui ss etc
Someone who knows about Chinese contemporary poetry might like to have a look at this group of related articles: I don't know whether they're promotional, or a hoax, or just a seriously undersourced group of notable poets. PamD 08:16, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
