Request for comment on Biographies of living people[edit]

Hello Wikiproject! Currently there is a discussion which will decide whether wikipedia will delete 49,000 articles about a living person without references, here:

Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Biographies of living people

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:

  1. supports the deletion of unreferenced articles about a living person, User:Jehochman
  2. 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.

Input sought[edit]

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)

Years in Poetry - Typo issues[edit]

Team, I have come across some articles of the type Year 12xx in poetry where the Titles of some poems are in language other than English. This is causing all kinds of Wikipedia Grammatical check issues. I have tried looking for translations for some of these names, but no go. I request editors to translate these names in "Foreign language title (English Language title)" format. E.g. La beauté des Sonnets (The beauty of Sonnets). --Wikishagnik (talk) 13:06, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
