Congressional Institute[edit]

Hello! I'm looking for editors who might be interested in helping me update the Congressional Institute article. As part of my work at Beutler Ink, I have drafted an updated and expanded article on behalf of the Institute. That draft is here, but there is more explanation about it in my Talk page note here. Due to my COI I won't edit the article directly, so I'm looking for neutral editors to review this draft. Thanks! Heatherer (talk) 20:55, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

Alt-right sidebar[edit]

Just noticed Template:Alt-right sidebar being added to several articles. Many of the articles it includes look to me to have little-to-no connection to the alt-right beyond being part of conservative ideology more broadly, and it includes several topics that are entirely unrelated, apparent original research, etc. My question for this group is whether you think it's an appropriate navigational template in general (i.e. whether it should be radically pruned, deleted, or incorporated into, say, Template:Conservatism US). My inclination is that it's not quite a big enough topic in terms of number of articles, but I also don't have a great deal of experience with this sort of navigational template. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 03:55, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Template:WPF query[edit]

This template reads very poorly. Presumably it is meant for article talk pages like this one where fascist status is in question because of a lack of clear sources, but it is worded as though it only applies to entities that "came to power" (the template's words), even though bona fide fascists that have actually come to power are generally described as fascist in an abundance of sources. So the template is unlikely to appear on the talk pages of articles on, say, Mussolini and Franco, but the query itself is useless for everyone else as a bunch of the criteria can't actually be applied to fringe political groups and figures that never actually seized power. Does this seem pointless to anyone else, or is it just me? Hijiri 88 (やや) 10:57, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Politics/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Politics.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Politics, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Automated assessment of article importance[edit]

Hello everyone! I'm currently working on a project studying how to do automatic classification of article importance. As part of that project, I've done some analysis of articles within the scope of WikiProject Politics and built a model to predict article importance. Started a thread over on the assessment page with more information and a link to our predictions (as well as a few other types of articles that might need an updated importance rating). Since I hadn't seen any comments over the past week, I thought I'd get in touch in here as well, would appreciate your thoughts and comments! Regards, Nettrom (talk) 23:43, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Cold War II[edit]

Cold War II (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)

Hello. I want to notify you about the article Cold War II, which I have mostly edited. Mainly I added the "US-China relations" section per RfC in Talk:Cold War II. For the time being, this article attracts those wanting to expand the content about US-Russia relations related to the topic (and its interchangeable terms). Initially, the article was created in response to events related to the US-Russia tensions. However, it experienced discussions, like the titling and the sourcing, leading to revamping the article. This year, attempts to insert presumably original research and unverifiable claims have been reverted, especially via more discussions. One suggested another AfD after the first one failed. I hope those interested in politics would be interested in preserving and watching this article. It is still attracting more presumptions related to US-Russia relations. I also hope that original research will be repelled in the future. --George Ho (talk) 22:00, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
