Sources for Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market
Please join the discussion on what sources would be adequate for what claims on this time-sensitive article. We have the problem that countless sources point in the same direction, but the usual sources for such aggregate information fail to provide it. --Nemo 07:11, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
I'm leaving a note to inform any interested parties that there is a telecommunications-related AFD at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Coded set.

Google Pixel Merger Discussion
The articles Pixel (smartphone) and Pixel 2 could potentially be merged onto the Google Pixel article. Any feedback is welcome and encouraged. The area for discussion can be found here. Plantduets (talk) 16:31, 8 August 2018 (UTC)
- @Plantduets: As far as I can tell from the activity of this specific Wikiproject, I think no one is going to care much if you just go ahead with the edits to merge the articles. I'm let down that since I've joined this project (a few weeks ago), the level of activity in this group is horribly low. So, in my opinion, have at it... Make the changes... --TadgStirkland401 (TadgTalk) 23:54, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
- There seems to be a healthy discussion happening, that's what's important. Don't be discouraged by a lack of response here. You are welcome to do the merge WP:BOLDLY but that's potentially a lot of work that could get reverted if someone disagrees. That's why it is often good to discuss first. ~Kvng (talk) 15:37, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
Proposal to make redirects for area code pages
Hello, all! Whenever I want to look at pages such as, say, Area code 708, I often type in the search engine "708 (area code)". The search returns no pages, but has relevant results in its search feature. Therefore, for me and other people who would search under such a sequence of words, I would like to propose that a [number] (area code) be created to redirect to Area code [number]. This way, it would be easier to navigate and research information and histories depending on the given area code. This would make researching area codes on Wikipedia easier and smoother for interested parties, as the redirects would lead directly to the demanded pages, instead of a search page.
- I'm not quite clear if you like the current results you see when searching on "708 (area code)"? If so, I believe creating the redirect will prevent this result from appearing, since you'll be directed to the Area code 708 page. Personally, I prefer to let search engines do their job rather than create redirects for purposes of searching, but I appreciate some people have different views. For this particular case, after searching for the first area code readers should know the naming convention and adjust their searches accordingly, particularly since it has fewer characters and less punctuation. isaacl (talk) 02:56, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
