Amateur observations of this article (Food deserts)
This article on food deserts is very organized and full of useful information. The links to the citations are diverse and scholarly and the subheadings are easy to navigate. In addition, the language is simple and understandable and sounds like it is coming from an actual human being who has done the adequate research on this topic. However, I feel that there can be much more information added to this article. The section on food deserts in countries seems to be lumped together into single geographical groups. Maybe more information on the regions within each country, or a diagram representing the geographical differences of food desert density within each will bring to light the smaller realities of certain peoples within those countries. This, in turn, will also help avoid the persistence of stereotypes about countries like Africa that show the country as always hungry, poor, and unable to take care of themselves. Another piece of information that could be added is some literature about the perspective of large supermarkets. Although it would be quite difficult to get this type of information because they are seen as constantly silent in food desert matters, it would also be very interesting to see a possible perspective of the other side. Finally, a section that is missing in this article is a section on how communities within food deserts have adjusted to their situation. The advent of urban farming would be a great place to start. For example, urban farming in Detroit is a very popular topic, especially within the documentary Urban Roots.Jade Everage 06:51, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Upcoming "420 collaboration"
Hi, all. Opinions are needed on the following: Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style#RfC: Should the WP:ANDOR guideline be softened to begin with "Avoid unless" wording or similar?. A WP:Permalink for it is here. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 22:46, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
I have started the draft, please feel free to participate in developing it further. I have posted a list of sources that I can share on the draft's talk page. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 10:26, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
- Looks good to me. When you mainspace it, do go for a T:TDYK, if it is confusing ask me for help. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 05:50, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report
We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)!

Every month, will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Sociology/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Sociology.
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 m:User talk:Community Tech bot.for his original , 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 Sociology, and what articles may be deserving of more attention.

How to describe the Emmett Till case in the lead sentence of the Emmett Till article
Opinions are needed on the following matter: Talk:Emmett Till#RfC: Should we include the "accused of showing an interest in a white woman" aspect in the lead or specifically the lead sentence?. A WP:Permalink for it is here. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 16:52, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
Transformation of culture is a mess
It looks more like someone's personal essay than an encyclopedia article. It would probably be easier to merge whatever is worth keeping into a related article and delete the rest. I created a merge proposal suggesting it be merged into Culture change, but if someone has a better idea for an article to merge it into, then we should go with that.

WP:Citation overkill RfC
Opinions are needed on the following matter: Wikipedia talk:Citation overkill#Should this essay be changed to encourage more citations?. A WP:Permalink for it is here. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 01:26, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
Dispute at Economic sociology
Hello, Economic sociology has been repeatedly edited in recent months to re-add information about minor research groups and a personal website, but these edits lack independent sources to show their significance (imo). Please see the article's history and talkpage for more information. It would be great, if uninvolved editors could take a look at the dispute and offer additional opinions and advice - I have started a thread to summarize my concerns at Talk:Economic sociology. Thanks in advance. GermanJoe (talk) 19:42, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
