Request for comment on Biographies of living people
Currently there is Once upon a time there was 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.
What is this doing still here?
This unsigned comment is nearly seven years old. Why hasn't it been archived? It was originally posted in January 2010 by Ikip, who deleted and reposted it a couple times then and the next day, and it hasn't been touched since then. It was archived there in July 2010. So why is this still here as if it were current, unsigned and undated?
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)
Tales of a Wayside Inn
Tales of a Wayside Inn tells two stories, in different paragraphs, about Longfellow's decision to call the book that instead of The Sudbury Tales. These would be best reconciled and combined.
Details in Talk:Tales of a Wayside Inn# Change of title. Whether you choose to discuss it here or there, add a "Discussion at..." note in the other place.
I notice that the word samhara has been translated as collection or group and by extension, garland. Samhara as "destruction" has been very categorically rejected. I would tend to take the opposite view. The words for collection and destruction are close but not the same. The vowel shift in tatsama words from Sanskrit to Hindi can create this situation. The transliteration for the Sanskrit word for collection would be samahara (समाहार), and that for destruction would be samhara (संहार).
Kalidasa's poem dwells on the passing of the seasons - one making way for the other, and hence संहार samhara. The garlanding of the season's would have been समाहार samahara. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Quayes (talk • contribs) 00:56, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
