Liberal Party of Canada candidates, 41st Canadian federal election

Wondering why you removed Brian Murphy (Canadian politician)Brian Murphy from the list of candidates for the 41st Canadian federal election?

Your username

[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you for your contributions. However, I noticed that your username (Progressive Tory) may not meet Wikipedia's username policy because it implies that you may not ascribe to Wikipedia's policy on a neutral point of view. If you believe that your username does not violate our policy, please leave a note here explaining why. As an alternative, you may ask for a change of username, or you may simply create a new account and use that for editing. I am sorry I have to do this to you, your contributions have been very well written, and I appreciate your enthusiasm to cleanup some of the worn down articles on Wikipedia. I am conservative myself, but I worry that others my not be so appreciative of your edits, knowing that you are a Tory. Please feel free to write more about yourself and/or add userboxes to your user page, specifically ((User:UBX/User NL PC)); see Wikipedia:Userboxes/Location/Canada for more Canadian boxes. Thank-you for understanding.117Avenue (talk) 05:21, 12 January 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Danny Williams and Kathy Dunderdale

[edit]

Hello N&L! Thanks for the note you left on my talk page. There were a few points to address:

  1. The importance rating is on par with other premiers (see Talk:Dalton McGuinty and Talk:Ralph Klein, for example). Of course, that's kind of ridiculous from the perspective of each of their provinces - it's an inherent problem with having the WikiProjects overlap the way they do. The best I feel I can do is add some consistency within the WikiProject Canada structure, such as it is.
  2. Improving the article(s): I'm not an expert at that kind of advice. The Wikipedia:Peer review process is what I would use if I were looking for specific help. There's also a spot on the Wikipedia:Canadian Wikipedians' notice board where you can ask for peer reviews from Canadian Wikipedians.
  3. As you probably know by now, I added assessments to Kathy Dunderdale's article.

Cheers!, PKT(alk) 13:59, 18 January 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Siobhán Coady

[edit]

Hi there, I noticed you added the title "The Honourable" for Siobhán Coady, in her infobox, but I'm confused as to how she obtained this title. Being elected as an MP doesn't entile a person to be styled as "The Honourable". She has never been a cabinet minister, as she has only served in opposition, never in government, and I can't find anything in article to suggest that she has been sworn in to the privy council. If you can somehow find a source that backs up the title, feel free to put it back in, but as it stands right now, there is nothing provided to suggest she actually has this title so it doesn't belong.

Re: Nfld PC party

[edit]

The Progressive Conservative Party of Newfoundland and Labrador article is looking good. It's borderline C-class or B-class. If you expand and cite the ideology section and add some more images you can probably nominate it for good article status before long. —Arctic Gnome (talkcontribs) 01:56, 4 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Looking for help

[edit]

Hi, I have noticed you are contributing to articles pertaining to NL. You are doing some nice work, thanks for that. I have nearly 6,000 NL related articles in my watch list that I monitor for vandalism and watch as they improve. I would like to see a school class or a MUN history class take on Wikipedia articles as a project.

I haven't done much on new material this past number of months. I will be willing to pitch-in, do you have anything specific in the article you have in mind? HJKeats (talk) 14:41, 8 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Yvonne Jones

[edit]

Hi there, when I received your message, I was actually in the middle of writing a response to the section you added to the talk page. Basically, I agree the information should be sourced or removed. It looks pretty much like a promotion of the subject, while at the same time, taking a shot against Danny Williams. If the comments were in fact made, than the onus should have been on the editor who added the info back in November 2009 to provide one. If you look at the original addition of the material, the editor used the term "we" when discussing the priorities. I find that strange in itself. Cmr08 (talk) 04:23, 10 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]

I just checked the history again, and I was wrong on the date. The material about Williams wasn't part of the original edit in November 2009, it was added to the section at a later date, but that doesn't change the fact that its unsourced and shouldn't be in the article. I think you did the right thing by removing it. I'm kind of iffy about removing the whole section myself, but an argument could be made for the removal per WP:BLP. The section is discussing her views, but providing no proof that they actually are her views, but I'll leave it to others to decide. Cmr08 (talk) 04:45, 10 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]

I've fixed the remaining problems, however, you're problems with how the article is referenced remains invalid. Everything in the article is referenced, I just havn't put a reference behind every sentence. This is a totally normal referencing procedure, see for example the Nikita Khrushchev article, an FA or the Leonid Brezhnev and Alexei Kosygin articles, two GAs that I nominated. While it's nice you're reviewing articles, you should learn more about common referencing procedures by reading the Wiki guidelines if you want to continue.

I'll be blunt, either you stop reviewing the article or you start reading the Wiki guidelines properly and the GA criteria to learn how you review an article. --TIAYN (talk) 06:31, 17 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]
It has nothing to do with "I don't like".... I've never seen an article use the very same reference twenty times in an article. NO GA has a reference behind EVERY sentence, of course, if it's a very short article that is something different. See other GAs, such as Vyacheslav Molotov, Anastas Mikoyan or the Nikita Khrushchev FA-article. None of these have references behind EVERY sentenced. But yes, either you learn normal referencing procedures. and if you don't, delete your review, I'll gladly wait another "four months". --TIAYN (talk) 16:09, 17 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Fine, you're deleting your review or fine, I'm accepting the way most people reference articles? --TIAYN (talk) 16:25, 17 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Just wanted to say, I read your review and wanted to clear up some misconceptions. A citation follows the text being cited, so if an entire paragraph is being referenced by one source, it's sufficient to have one ref at the end of that paragraph. Likewise, if a single sentence comes from different sources, it's appropriate to place references either at the end of that sentence, or at parts which show exactly what is being referenced by each source. See WP:CITE#Some general advice. Regarding the date format, WP:DATERET states that there is no preference given to any format, and that it shouldn't just be changed unless there is a compelling national reason to do so. In this case, the DMY format is preferred.
--Gyrobo (talk) 20:23, 21 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for your note. No, I don't think the article is B class yet......not even C class, IMO. There is a typo and more linking to be done for C class, and I think more depth is needed before B class could be considered. PKT(alk) 20:59, 18 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Seventh overall, yes, but only the fourth of a province (the other three were territorial premiers; they're chosen differently and have less executive power than a provincial premier does, so the distinction between provincial and territorial premiers needs to be maintained.)

Hello, I apologize for leaving that warning. I had an interface issue last night while patrolling for vandalism.

Dunderdale photo

[edit]

Your comment on Kathy Dunderdale's edit history ask of the usefulness of the new photo of her. I know the photo is not the best photo of Dunderdale. However, it is currently the only photo of her that is able to be used on Wikipedia from flickr. If a better photo become avaliable then it can be used, but currently that photo is the only one. Aaaccc (talk), 10 March 2011 (UTC)

I feel the same as Aaacc, at least its better than nothing. I am wondering though, if supporters (like 174.116.120.203), will find the picture has been used to present her in a false or disparaging light. 117Avenue (talk) 00:29, 11 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]
I hope no one feels that way because as a contributer I was only trying to get a photo for this article. It just so happens to turn out that this photo is the only one avaliable. Aaaccc (talk), 10 March 2011 (UTC)
I just find that the picture is very unflattering and she's nearly unrecognizable. Just my opinion though. Newfoundlander&Labradorian (talk) 00:42, 11 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]
I understand and agree it's not the best but currently it's all we got. If a better photo comes along we will be the first to use it, but until then the photo we got is better than nothing. Aaaccc (talk), 10 March 2011 (UTC)
I forwarded NorthernThunder's request for a better photo on the local File talk:Kathy Dunderdale.jpg page to Commons:File talk:Kathy Dunderdale.jpg in the hope that it would increase the request's exposure. – Athaenara 05:37, 11 May 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, Athaenara. It really surprises me how difficult it has been to get such a picture. It's bad enough that the legal restrictions get in the way. I guess nobody in NL comes to Wikipedia. NorthernThunder (talk) 19:23, 11 May 2011 (UTC)[reply]

A quick question

[edit]

Hi there, I'm sure if anyone can answer this question, you can. In Newfoundland & Labrador, is the post nominal MHA only used by current MHAs? Danny Williams article still has the MHA after his name, and if he also resigned his seat, wouldn't that mean he's no longer an MHA? I'm in Nova Scotia, and here only sitting MLAs have the post nominal MLA. Once they resign or defeated, it's no longer used after their name. I belive MPs also lose the post nominal MP once they are no longer an MP. I didn't want to just remove the MHA in case the rules are different in the two provinces. I know here, former cabinet ministers now keep the title Honourable, while other provinces don't, so its posible rules on post nominals could also vary by province. Any ideas? Thanks. Cmr08 (talk) 04:07, 11 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]

OK, I'll take a look around and see if I can find out. By the way, good work on the premier articles, it's amazing how much one editor has been able to add and improve those articles. Cmr08 (talk) 04:21, 11 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]

St. John's

[edit]

Politicians are better placed in Category:People from St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador rather than Category:St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, and since the people category is itself a subcategory of the main city one, there's no real need for them to be in both categories simultaneously.

Hello. Are you Newfoundlander72? Did you know that we have a unified login, which allows us to exist across the Wikimedia project under the same user name? Same names help users identify each other on other language Wikipedias, the commons, and more. 117Avenue (talk) 05:32, 22 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Newfoundlander&Labradorian, are you indenting to do any more work on the WP:GAN, or are you content for it to be "failed"? You can of course resubmit at WP:GAN at a later date. Pyrotec (talk) 11:18, 24 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]

If necessary I could do the lead, but I prefer not to do it since it is potentially a conflict of interest (since I approve my own edits). The comments in Talk:St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador/GA1 that do not have a checkY or a  Done are outstanding. I've just ticked on off (ref 29) since that reference has changed and is no longer a book. Pyrotec (talk) 16:30, 24 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]

I've listed some fairly extensive suggestions in the current GA review. As you and other editors apply corrections, I'll mark them with  Done. My suggestions for the Lead section may be a bit more extensive than appropriate for a reviewer, so I may ask another reviewer's opinion on the Lead. Folklore1 (talk) 00:38, 3 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Dominic LeBlanc

[edit]

Hi there, I just wanted to give you a heads up that I reverted one of the edits you made to the Dominic LeBlanc article. According to WP:CREDENTIAL, "Post-nominal letters indicating academic degrees (including honorary degrees) should not be included following the subject's name in the first line (although they may occasionally be used in articles of which the person with the degree is not the subject to clarify their qualifications)." It's already fixed, so it's no big deal or anything, I just thought you were probably unaware of the policy, and would like to know for future reference. As for listing the degrees after name in infobox, I'm not quite 100% sure, but I do believe they are allowed to be listed there. Cmr08 (talk) 05:51, 2 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Ted Hsu

[edit]

You got it right with your third edit; we should normally give pronunciation keys in IPA rather than trying to approximate a phonetic spelling in English letters, because dialects of English vary quite widely — there are, believe it or not, dialects of English where even "SHOO" would be interpreted as implying "show" or "sue" rather than "shoe" the way Canadians say it. And just as another example, try to imagine an article which gave a word or name's pronunciation as "rhymes with car": would that imply caur the way many Torontonians say it, or cair the way many Newfoundlanders say it? So changing it to IPA was the right step. Bearcat (talk) 16:41, 8 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Portals

[edit]

Ok here is how i tell people what to do.......go ahead and start i will jumpin were need be.Moxy (talk) 03:40, 1 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Step one

First we search to find the page we wish to create...we then click on the red link like this one-->Portal:St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador and past in what is bellow..and save page!! (Take note to change the TITLE)

<small>((browsebar))</small>
__NOTOC____NOEDITSECTION__
<div style="float:right; width:100%">
((/box-header|'''<big>TITLE</big>'''|((FULLPAGENAME))/Intro|))
((((FULLPAGENAME))/Intro))
((/box-footer|))
</div>
<div style="text-align:center; margin:0.25em auto 0.75em">((purge|'''Show new selections below... (purge)'''))</div>
<div style="float:right; width:55%;"> <!-- This width add to the the margin below to equal 99%-->
((Random portal component |max=1|header=Selected article| subpage=Selected article))
((Random portal component |max=1|header=Selected bio| subpage=Selected bio))
</div>

<div style="width:44%; float:left;">
((Random portal component |max=1|header=Selected event| subpage=Selected event))
((Random portal component |max=1|header=Selected picture| subpage=Selected picture))
((/box-header|Categories|((FULLPAGENAME))/Categories|))
((/Categories))
((/box-footer|))
</div>

<div style="clear:both; width:100%">
((/box-header|Topics|((FULLPAGENAME))/Topics|))
((((FULLPAGENAME))/Topics))
((/box-footer|))

((/box-header|Related portals|((FULLPAGENAME))/Related portals|))
((((FULLPAGENAME))/Related portals))
((/box-footer|))

((/box-header|Associated WikiMedia |((FULLPAGENAME))/Associated WikiMedia|))
((((FULLPAGENAME))/Associated WikiMedia ))
((/box-footer|))
</div>
|}
((-))
((portals))
<center>((Purgepage))</center>
__NOTOC__ __NOEDITSECTION__

Step 2

We now have to add codes to 2 of the e subpages to make the layout work! In the red link like -->Portal:St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador/box-footer we have to add the code below.

((Portal:box-footer | (({1))} ))

The next code is for the colors that you can choose ... we need to place the code below in page like Portal:St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador/box-header.

((Portal:Box-header | title=(({1))} 
|editpage=(({2))} 
|border=#aaaaaa           <!-- This is the color of the borders around Box Sections -->
|titleforeground=white    <!-- This is the color of the Box Section Title Bar text -->
|titlebackground=#aaccff  <!-- This is the color of the Box Section Title Bar -->
|background=#f9f9ff       <!-- This is the color of the Box Section background -->
|foreground=black))       <!-- This is the color of the Box Section text -->
So your done coding now need to fill all the boxs with info  :) those red links...

Adding a second and/or third selection.... ok so as of now there is 1 box for each section selected ...to change/Add more selection/a second box ... we need to Up the max=1 number to make more selections for each one that can do that... the code on the main page is --> ((Random portal component |max=1 .... So change |max=1 to |max=2 etc... save page purge and they will appear.

Hi. Can you confirm the pronunciation is correct? I changed it rather arbitrarily from something which had been impossible, but I don't know that I got it right, which is why I tagged it. (Pls answer on my talk.) — kwami (talk) 14:07, 31 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Okay, thanks! I thought the transcriber might have mean that it's stressed on the na rather than on the pen. — kwami (talk) 14:35, 31 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, so it is incorrect then. Can you spell it out in rhymes? And tell me which syllable is stressed? — kwami (talk) 14:47, 31 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, thanks. Will fix. — kwami (talk) 14:57, 31 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, I'm lost here. Do I need to register to post here first? If yes, do I need a pass for each individual forum or does one pass work all? I really like your Kathy Dunderdale, was it your idea? Cheers...

Latest polling numbers

[edit]

Hi Newfoundland&Labradorian, could you please check the PDF file you added to Kathy Dunderdale's article with the most recent polling numbers from Corporate Research.[2] When I try to open it, I keep getting an error message, but I'm not sure if the problem is with the PDF file or with my pdf reader. If there is a problem, the HTML version can be used as it's the same information, but if there's not, I apologize in advance for getting you to check the link. I thought it was better to to mention this just incase there was a problem. Cmr08 (talk) 23:01, 14 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks, my program probably needs to be updated. Cmr08 (talk) 00:18, 15 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]
[edit]

Hi there, I don't know if you noticed this yet, but every external link you added for the bios of PC MHAs are no longer directing to the bio link you provided. Each one is re-directing to the (newenergynl.ca) homepage. You've done most of the work on these articles, so I didn't want to go over your head, but at the same time I figured you would want to know about this. The party must have changed the url when the campaign began, because these links were still directing to the bios a few days ago. Cmr08 (talk) 02:27, 24 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]

There's actually not much to this, just a matter of replacing the dunderdale2011.ca with newenergynl.ca and the bios work fine, so I'll start fixing the links. For some reason when I click on anything on newenergynl.ca, I'm only seeing half the page, it's like the first half is missing. Anyways, I'm sure after the election, the url will probably be back to pcparty or something like that and the links will all have to be changed again, but for now I guess we just go with changes. Cmr08 (talk) 16:35, 24 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Ok, just wanted to mention one thing about the links. I will keep the link in the infobox as you have added them, but as far as I can tell, the website slot in the infobox is for listing the subjects official website. If the subject doesn't have an official website, I think the slot is just left empty, not duplicated with their biography page from the "External links" section. Many politicians do have official websites, so it's quite posible that some of these MHAs also have them, like (darinking.ca). Cmr08 (talk) 17:32, 24 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]

FROM THE EDITOR
An Historic Milestone

By Lionelt

Welcome to the inaugural issue of The Right Stuff, the newsletter of WikiProject Conservatism. The Project has developed at a breakneck speed since it was created on February 12, 2011 with the edit summary, "Let's roll!" With over 50 members the need for a project newsletter is enormous. With over 3000 articles to watch, an active talk page and numerous critical discussions spread over various noticeboards, it has become increasingly difficult to manage the information overload. The goal of The Right Stuff is to help you keep up with the changing landscape.

The Right Stuff is a newsletter consisting of original reporting. Writers will use a byline to "sign" their contributions. Just as with The Signpost, "guidelines such as 'no ownership of articles', and particularly 'no original research', will not necessarily apply."

WikiProject Conservatism has a bright future ahead: this newsletter will allow us tell the story. All that's left to say is: "Let's roll!"

New Style Guide Unveiled

By Lionelt

A new style guide to help standardize editing was rolled out. It focuses on concepts, people and organizations from a conservatism perspective. The guide features detailed article layouts for several types of articles. You can help improve it here. The Project's Article Collaboration currently has two nominations, but they don't appear to be generating much interest. You can get involved with the Collaboration here.

I am pleased to report that we have two new members: Rjensen and Soonersfan168. Rjensen is a professional historian and has access to JSTOR. Soonersfan168 says he is a "young conservative who desires to improve Wikipedia!" Unfortunately we will be seeing less of Geofferybard, as he has announced his semi-retirement. We wish him well. Be sure to stop by their talk pages and drop off some Wikilove.


ARTICLE REPORT
3,000th Article Tagged

By Lionelt

On August 3rd Peter Oborne, a British journalist, became the Project's 3,000th tagged article. It is a tribute to the membership that we have come this far this quickly. The latest Featured Article is Richard Nixon. Our congratulations to Wehwalt for a job well done. The article with the most page views was Rick Perry with 887,389 views, not surprising considering he announced he was running for president on August 11th. Follwing Perry were Michele Bachmann and Tea Party movement. The Project was ranked 75th based on total edits, which is up from 105th in July. The article with the most edits was Republican Party (United States) presidential primaries, 2012 with 374 edits. An RFC regarding candidate inclusion criteria generated much interest on the talk page.


The Honourable

[edit]

Please see The_honourable#Canada:

In addition, some people are entitled to the style while in office only:

The Speaker of the Canadian House of Commons; Judges; Premiers and government leaders in provinces and territories; Members of provincial executive councils while holding office; Speakers of provincial legislatures while holding office; and,Territorial commissioners. Vale of Glamorgan (talk) 19:52, 10 October 2011 (UTC)[reply]

The article Dan Crummell has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the ((prod blp)) tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

INTERVIEW
An Interview with Dank

By Lionelt

The Right Stuff caught up with Dank, the recently elected Lead Coordinator of WikiProject Military History. MILHIST is considered by many to be one of the most successful projects in the English Wikipedia.

Q: Tell us a little about yourself.
A: I'm Dan, a Wikipedian since 2007, from North Carolina. I started out with an interest in history, robotics, style guidelines, and copyediting. These days, I'm the lead coordinator for the Military History Project and a reviewer of Featured Article Candidates. I've been an administrator and maintained WP:Update, a summary of policy changes, since 2008.

Q: What is your experience with WikiProjects?
A: I guess I'm most familiar with WP:MILHIST and WP:SHIPS, and I'm trying to get up to speed at WP:AVIATION. I've probably talked with members of most of the wikiprojects at one time or another.

Q: What makes a WikiProject successful?
A: A lot of occasional contributors who think of the project as fun rather than work, a fair number of people willing to write or review articles, a small core of like-minded people who are dedicated to building and maintaining the project, and access to at least a few people who are familiar with reviewing standards and with Wikipedia policies and guidelines.

Q: Do you have any tips for increasing membership?
A: Aim for a consistent, helpful and professional image. Let people know what the project is doing and what they could be doing, but don't push.





If you've got a core group interested in building a wikiproject, it helps if they do more listening than talking at first ... find out what people are trying to do, and offer them help with whatever it is. Some wikiprojects build membership by helping people get articles through the review processes.


DISCUSSION REPORT
Abortion Case Plods Along

By Lionelt

The arbitration request submitted by Steven Zhang moved into its second month. The case, which evaluates user conduct, arose from contentious discussions regarding the naming of the Pro-life and Pro-choice articles, and a related issue pertaining to the inclusion of "death" in the lede of Abortion. A number of members are involved. On the Evidence page ArtifexMahem posted a table indicating that DMSBel made the most edits to the Abortion article. DMSBel has announced their semi-retirement. Fact finding regarding individual editor behavior has begun in earnest on theWorkshop page.

Last month it was decided that due to the success of the new Dispute Resolution Noticeboard the Content Noticeboard would be shut down. Wikiquette Assistance will remain active. The DRN is primarily intended to resolve content disputes.


PROJECT NEWS
Article Incubator Launched

By Lionelt

Was your article deleted in spite of your best efforts to save it? You should consider having a copy restored to the Incubator where project members can help improve it. Upon meeting content criteria, articles are graduated to mainspace. The Incubator is also ideal for collaborating on new article drafts. Star Parker is the first addition to the incubator. The article was deleted per WP:POLITICIAN.

WikiProject Conservatism is expanding. We now have a satellite on Commons. Any help in categorizing images or in getting the fledgling project off the ground is appreciated.

We have a few new members who joined the project in September. Please give a hearty welcome to Conservative Philosopher, Screwball23 and Regushee by showing them some Wikilove. Screwball23 has been on WikiPedia for five years and has made major improvements to Linda McMahon. Regushee is not one for idle chit chat: an amazing 93% of their edits are in article space.

PROJECT NEWS
WikiProject Conservatism faces the ultimate test

By Lionelt

On October 7, WikiProject Conservatism was nominated for deletion by member Binksternet. He based his rationale on what he described as an undefinable scope, stating that the project is "at its root undesirable". Of the 40 participants in the discussion, some agreed that the scope was problematic; however, they felt it did not justify deletion of the project. A number of participants suggested moving the project to "WikiProject American conservatism". The overwhelming sentiment was expressed by Guerillero who wrote: "A project is a group of people. This particular group does great work in their topic area[,] why prevent them from doing this[?]" In the end there was negligible opposition to the project and the result of the discussion was "Keep". The proceedings of the deletion discussion were picked up by The Signpost, calling the unfolding drama "the first MfD of its kind". The Signpost observed that attempting to delete an active project was unprecedented. The story itself became a source of controversy which played out at the Discuss This Story section, and also at the author's talk page.

Two days after the project was nominated, the Conservatism Portal was also nominated for deletion as "too US-biased". There was no support for deletion amongst the 10 participants, with one suggestion to rename the portal.

In other news, a new portal focusing on conservatism has been created at WikiSource. Wikisource is an online library of free content publications with 254,051 accessible texts. One highlight of the portal's content is Reflections on the Revolution in France by Edmund Burke.

October saw a 6.4% increase in new members, bringing the total membership to 58. Seven of the eight new members joined after October 12; the deletion discussions may have played a role in the membership spike. Mwhite148 is a member of the UK Conservative Party. Stating that he is not a conservative, Kleinzach noted his "lifetime interest in British, European and international politics." Let's all make an effort to welcome the new members with an outpouring of Wikilove.

DISCUSSION REPORT
Timeline of conservatism is moved

By Lionelt

Timeline of conservatism, a Top-importance list, was nominated for deletion on October 3. The nominator stated that since conservatism in an "ambiguous concept", the timeline suffers from original research. There were a number of "Delete", as well as "Keep" votes. The closing administrator reasoned that consensus dictated that the list be renamed. The current title is Timeline of modern American conservatism.

((Infobox politician)) is only meant to reflect the affiliations that a person held in the legislature.

New St. John's taskforce

[edit]

Hello Newfoundlander&Labradorian, User:Moxy sent me your way. I'm trying to find out the intent of the new parameter stjohns=yes in ((WikiProject Canada)). Currenlty, it places a lovely portal icon in the banner? It does nothing else. Specifically, it creates no categories for your taskforce. Argolin (talk) 00:42, 28 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

The parameter stjohns=yes should create (I think they're called virtual) categories. I use the ("virtual") category to compare against the real categories. For example, I'll take the "virtual" Category:WikiProject Canadian music articles and compare against Category:Musicians from St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador and Category:People from St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. Anything in the second cat and not in the first, I need to add to the music project. Anything in the people cat and in my first main music category, I need to move to the musicians cat. I just did this yesterday. Similar things can be done for the rest of Newfoundland, if we get the ((WikiProject Canada)) modified.
The quality class assessments are done project wide. They are the same across all wikipedia projects. (If you see articles with three/four projects do everyone a favour and assign them all the same class). Importance ratings are another matter. They're having template limitation issues. It didn't look right to me, but I thought I'd ask first. I'll post something on the discussion page. Unless there's something else? Argolin (talk) 17:58, 28 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

I'd like to have the importance rating, obviously the class assessment doesn't make sense seeing all articles will be apart of other projects. Newfoundlander&Labradorian (talk) 18:16, 28 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

To confirm, even if St. Johns' were removed from ((WikiProject Canada)) and given it's own project, you'd still use the same class assessments. For importance, as a guess, it'll take the form of stjohns-importance=Mid; that is if the template limitations are not an issue for the separate rating. Have you got an idea as to what you're going to define for the St. John's ratings? I too have a problem with the Canada project: everything is Low or Mid. There is no mention of a separate rating at the discussion here. Regardless, I think we need to fix your taskforce first. Then ask for a separate rating. Argolin (talk) 18:38, 28 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

I figured there could be a St. John's specific rating system. The Mayor of St. John's would only be considered low importance for instance in any other project but in relation to St. John's it would be high or top importance. The other thing with having the quality class assessments done as well is that if the table of statistics gets done, which will list all the projects, their importance and rating, then it would be easier to see which articles need work. Newfoundlander&Labradorian (talk) 18:50, 28 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

I was trying to put you on the spot! lol Of course, you'll have to eventually post them at your taskforce. The Canada project offered a separate importance rating for me. I intend to follow through. I figured it would be better to determine what articles are assigned to the music project first, then go from there. I'm sure you'll be surprised at the articles once we get statistics for you. I'll post something to the Canada template now. Argolin (talk) 21:30, 28 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Where is the stats table? Argolin (talk) 21:32, 28 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Ok found it. BTW, there's no link from your portal to the project page. Argolin (talk) 22:18, 28 January 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Newfoundlander&Labradorian, there is a problem with the ((WikiProject Canada)) template. I've asked them to fix it. I haven't heard how long it will take. Has the taskforce been tagging/bannering the talk pages of relevant articles that are to be included? Argolin (talk) 04:01, 6 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Yes. Newfoundlander&Labradorian (talk) 12:51, 6 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
I've posted another request pleading for a timeline on Category:WikiProject St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador articlesCategory:St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador articles. The (redlinked/blue) name is my guess for the official wikipedia name for this Project/Task force stats table. I am shocked that it has taken since Auguat 2011 to get your task force up and running. I am a member of Wikipedia:WikiProject Canadian music. If it were my place to apologise I would.
I've kissed the cod! I have officially signed up to your project. My thing is music. Unfortunately, I know how many of the "back end" wiki things work. I'll stop asking you about things such as article alerts, picture requests in St. Jon's, and shouldn't your project be a member of Category:WikiProject Newfoundland and Labrador. I'll just do it. I'll announce such things on the project's talk page.
Is there really only three of us to ask to do tasks? Can you post to the discussion page and ask everyone to offically sign up? With interests?
So far as bannering talk page articles with ((WikiProject Canada)) stjohn=yes. Looking at your category tree, there are ~500 articles. No problem that can be done in a week. I've more/less done Category:Musicians from Newfoundland and Labrador and Category:Musical groups from Newfoundland and Labrador. Be aware the Albums/Songs category is not tied directly to Category:WikiProject Newfoundland and Labrador. I've added a few that I thougt were entirely relevant as a discussion point.
Once the stats table Category:WikiProject St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador articlesCategory:St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador articles is corrected, I'll be able to provide listings of what articles to add and which ones have been added. I don't know about the other artices, but for WP:MUSIC you've got to state in prose the year and place your band was established (not rely entirely on the originating field). I entirely expect articles to be missed by you/me or missed because they were added to these categories later. Argolin (talk) 08:44, 7 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

I finally got a response out of ((WikiProject Canada)). The project's articles are in Category:St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador articles which I've set up. I guess I have to set up the rest of the schema for the project (items in red). I'll advise when the statistics page is up and running. I've had to move the project page to Wikipedia:WikiProject St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. Any questions so far? Argolin (talk) 01:31, 18 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

I've set the stats table on the main project page. I've edited my post above striking out what I thought the name would be and added the actual name the Canada Template people set. I've updated the project. We have to wait for the bot to populate the table (24 hourish). Questions, post to my page. Argolin (talk) 11:35, 19 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
It should not have taken three weeks (from when I started). You've been waiting since August 2011? The delay is entirely Canada's. I asked a great admin from the UK to help. She helped me on the new class=Future. Argolin (talk) 23:07, 21 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Wikipedia's Newest Featured Portal: Conservatism

By Lionelt

On January 21, The Conservatism Portal was promoted to Featured Portal (FP) due largely to the contributions of Lionelt. This is the first Featured content produced by WikiProject Conservatism. The road to Featured class was rocky. An earlier nomination for FP failed, and in October the portal was "Kept" after being nominated for deletion.

Member Eisfbnore significantly contributed to the successful Good Article nomination of Norwegian journalist and newspaper editor Nils Vogt in December. Eisfbnore also created the article. In January another Project article was promoted to Featured Article. Luís Alves de Lima e Silva, Duke of Caxias, a president of Brazil, attained Featured class with significant effort by Lecen. The Article Incubator saw its first graduation in November. A collaboration spearheaded by Mzk1 and Trackerseal successfully developed Star Parker to pass the notability guideline.


PROJECT NEWS
Project Scope Debated

By Lionelt

Another discussion addressing the project scope began in December. Nine alternatives were presented in the contentious, sometimes heated discussion. Support was divided between keeping the exitsing scope, or adopting a scope with more specificity. Some opponents of the specific scope were concerned that it was too limiting and would adversely affect project size. About twenty editors participated in the discussion.

Inclusion of the article Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was debated. Supporters for inclusion cited sources describing the KKK as "conservative." The article was excluded with more than 10 editors participating.

Project membership continues to grow. There are currently 73 members. Member Goldblooded (pictured) volunteers for the UK Conservative Party and JohnChrysostom is a Christian Democrat. North8000 is interested in libertarianism. We won't tell WikiProject Libertarianism he's slumming. Let's stop by their talkpages and share some Wikilove.

DISCUSSION REPORT
Why is Everyone Talking About Rick Santorum?

By Lionelt

Articles about the GOP presidential candidate and staunch traditional marriage supporter have seen an explosion of discussion. On January 8 an RFC was opened (here) to determine if Dan Savage's website link should be included in Campaign for "santorum" neologism. The next day the Rick Santorum article itself was the subject of an RFC (here) to determine if including the Savage neologism was a violation of the BLP policy. Soon after a third was opened (here) at Santorum controversy regarding homosexuality. This RFC proposes merging the neologism article into the controversy article.

The Abortion case closed in November after 15 weeks of contentious arbitration. The remedies include semi-protection of all abortion articles (numbering 1,500), sanctions for some editors including members of this Project, and a provision for a discussion to determine the names of what are colloquially known as the pro-life and pro-choice articles. The Committee endorsed the "1 revert rule" for abortion articles.


List of articles to add

[edit]

As promised, I've started a list of articles that need to be added. It's at Wikipedia:WikiProject St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador/to do. I'll go throuhh Category:St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador after the stats table is done. Argolin (talk) 03:21, 18 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Does it help when I put the category the article is placed in? I'm working on getting a complete list now. Please advise here asap. Argolin (talk) 03:13, 22 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Is there some reason you did not assess and rate all the new articles you added? Argolin (talk) 04:55, 22 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

You're brand new to the assessments? You haven't looked at all the new categories that were set up. Goto Category:Unknown-importance St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador articles. I made it similar to the music one Category:Unknown-importance Canadian music articles. I jazzed up the category when I was new to wiki assessments.

Now, I use the page as my "home page". I go there first to see if any articles need an assessment/rating. Then I go to the project to check the article alerts, etc... I'm not saying you have to do the same thing. I am saying that there are tools and places to go for help. You've gotta know where they are! Make sure you go to the /Assessment subpage. There is a wikipedia wide definition of the classes (article & non-article). Don't worry too much about the non-article classes (Template, Category, Project, ...) as I'm adding them. Also there is the importance rating table as maintained by the Canada project. Feel free to ask any questions. If it's not clear to you, it's probalby not clear to someone else. You didn't ask anything so I thought you were up to speed on this aspect of wiki. Argolin (talk) 05:40, 22 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Hey Newfoundlander&Labradorian, you know what? All that needs to be done is to check that the articles you added to the St. John's project are not infact class=Redirect. If you need more of an explaination let me know. Insofar as copying the class assessment that is/was there for other projects, I believe that's ok for you too. There really is no one there looking over your shoulder checking everything you do. Unfortunately, it is also a thankless job. When I create articles, I always add them to projects. It's too bad other editors don't really understand the importance of the talk/discussion page. You'll get better at it the more you do.
I've added all the music articles for St. John's. It's not a problem for me as it's within my scope. 99% of articles that I assess are music; 100% of the ones I rate for importance are for Canadian music (and by default Canada). I can help and do some of the assessment/ratings but there is only 500-ish of them. When you want the remainder of the list of articles to add, please post to my talk page. I am a new WP:AWB user and such a list is even easier to generate than before. I'll ask user:Moxy to help with the assessment/ratings. Argolin (talk) 04:12, 26 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]
omg, I forgot. Check the assessment log. It is also at the bottom of the stats table. Argolin (talk) 04:23, 26 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Poll reference

[edit]

Hi, I'm not opposed to this modification, as I think the article should not give importance to polls sponsored by the candidates (as opposed to independent polls) but, for information, a reference about the removed sentence is available on this website. -- Asclepias (talk) 23:45, 18 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

If it's in that source then use that source, your previous citatation to Paul Dewar's website did not mention that information. Newfoundlander&Labradorian (talk)
It was not my citation. Me, I wouldn't even mention in that article a poll sponsored by a candidate, just like I wouldn't mention a poll sponsored by a political party in an article about a general election. However, because of your edit comment, I thought perhaps you wanted to use that information or you wanted to know it. If you don't have a use for it and didn't need it, then no problem. -- Asclepias (talk) 05:53, 19 February 2012 (UTC)[reply]

I've just noticed that the St. John's discussion page is redirected to Newfoundland and Labrador (meaning you are both using the same one). When I posted the articles to add, I didn't state that it was for St. John's. Are you ok with that; is it what you want? It can be corrected/fixed whatever.

Dwight Ball

[edit]

Thank's for fixing the reference in the Dwight Ball article. I think I was half asleep when I made that edit because I thought I was moving the reference to appear after the previous sentence, but now see that I put it after a comma.

LPC leadership race 2013

[edit]

Hello User:Newfoundlander&Labradorian!

Sorry for my rash decision in trimming the candidate list, but that will eventually have to happen on this page. You yourself suggested that Carney, Nenshi and May weren't serious names. Dalton already has a job, and declined the chance to run federally, as did Scott Brison. I know that with some of them we are waiting for a final word as to whether they'll run (i.e. Justin) but others we should start trimming from the list, wouldn't you agree? Bkissin (talk) 21:17, 1 July 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Carney, May and Nenshi are still mentioned in media though. There's been mixed messaging regarding Dalton McGuinty so I don't see why his name should be removed till there's something definite said in the coming months. Brison said last year he wasn't planning on running but his name is in the media still and he said recently he would decide over the Summer. Trudeau has also stated he doesn't intend to run but that he could change his mind, his name is therefore still included in the list of prospective candidates.

Mexico City is clearly older than St. John's

[edit]

Mexico City (founded 1325, entered Spanish possession in 1521) is clearly an older city than St. John's (founded somewhere around 1620). If you have evidence to the contrary, please cite it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.195.223.230 (talk) 05:22, 9 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

The IP user is right, even though English language sources usually say St John's is, though I'd venture most of those are Canadian sources and Americans might say Roanoake or Plymouth or somewhere like that. Mexico City is clearly older - and there are many cities in Mexico older, in fact. I'll move this section to the bottom of the talkpage where it belongs on my next edit, unless you do it first.Skookum1 (talk) 07:19, 9 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
The information on the page is all sourced. Newfoundlander&Labradorian (talk) 12:51, 9 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, I know, I know, but sources can be wrong. In this case it's clear that they are, or were written under the common misperception that North America ends at the Rio Grande; it doesn't. Two definitions apply, one is that North America ends at the Isthmus of Panama; another defines Central America as different and the division is at the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, which is the narrow bit of Mexico west of the Yucatan, and bridges the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific across the states of Tabasco and Chiapas. Another interpretation, of course, is that aboriginal places weren't "cities" and though Cahokia no longer stands, it was definitely older. This has also gotten me wondering about places like the pueblo cities where Spanish colonial cities were built around/atop an existing pueblo of the aboriginal peoples (the Pueblo people though I'm not certain of that.Skookum1 (talk) 13:14, 9 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
Just saw this.... This has been debated for years ,,,,but St. Augustine has the paper work to say "First city to be register as a city" * Marc Penfield (1996). Horoscopes of the USA and Canada. American Federation of Astr. p. 299. ISBN 978-0-86690-465-0.
Taos Pueblo, one mile north of the city of Taos, New Mexico, has been continuously occupied for 1000 years. Re St Augustine, the notion that Aztec city mandates, whatever they were, do not apply or that incorporation defines a city is highly dubious and also biased. And if that's the case, the City of St. John's is quite a bit younger.Skookum1 (talk) 14:39, 9 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
Every thing your saying is correct somewhat Kathleen O'Neal Gear; W. Michael Gear (2004). People of the Owl: A Novel of Prehistoric North America. Tom Doherty Associates. p. 13. ISBN 978-1-4299-9269-5. - however when taking about European settlements St Augustine seems to have been first...Yes StJohn's first English one.Moxy (talk) 14:48, 9 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

I just read the St Augustine article, early 1500s is the date; though it was destroyed and rebuilt at different locations more than once. But what I'd like to know, and is vague in the Saint John's article, where I just amended the disputed (and edit-warred sentence), not when it was first settled, which is what is given (1620) but in what year it got city status, which is the pivotal point of dispute, it would seem to me given the tone of that paragraph in the article...I'm still looking for the date of incorporation, User:N&L I imagine or I would hope can tell us that. And re SJ as Moxy observed, perhaps the qualifier "English" should be added to the oldest part; as this is clearly a matter of anglophone bias/premise. The St Augustine article mentions Seminole towns, those of us who know aboriginal history know that the Creek and Cherokee and certainly teh Pueblo and others had what can only be described as cities; Hochelaga, on the site of Montreal and now subsumed into that city, in the same way that Tenochtitlan and Xochimilco and Texcoco and others were subsumed into Mexico City (each of those three and their three or four sister cites around the Lago de Mexico were a hundred times the population of Madrid, London or Milan, then the largest cities in Christendom (the population of Constantinople under Ottoman rule at the time was vastly larger, but I don't know what it was). This whole discussion should probably be cut-and-pasted to the talkpage at St John's, and noticed on WP:Cities. a List of North American cities by date of founding would probably be worthwhile undertaking, with a column for founding, another for incorporation or other formal date of establishment.Skookum1 (talk) 15:56, 9 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Hi there. Thanks for the catch on my table-goofery. To be honest, the section still looks like crap, but at least it doesn't look explicitly broken (or have references to Windsor and Pickering) anymore.

Moxy requesting rollback and reviewer user rights for this user

[edit]

((admin help))

I understand that this is not the normal way to ask for user rights but Wikipedia:Requests for permissions is not set up for third party requests. This is a no brainier - thus I personally am asking that this user have access to the rollback option and the right to review pending edits. To be honest I hope one day to nominate this user for adminship....so lets see how they do with these rights please.Moxy (talk) 03:26, 8 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Why can the user not make the request for themself in the normal way? JohnCD (talk) 16:48, 8 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]
I guess they could - but I think they are not aware of the process (was going to educate the user on these tools myself). I am asking because the editor would be an asset with these "tools" and because they have had to ask others for help in these regards (if they had the tools they could just do it themselves). Not asking much here - user history is clean and as all can see the user is a net asset to the project. In the past these tools have been given to editors that are trusted without a process involved....simply asking for the same here - that is for this trusted user to get some tools. User rights are not big deal.Moxy (talk) 17:09, 8 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]
 Not done. Sorry, but I am not happy to give the tools to someone who "is not aware of the process". First, you should educate them so that they know what the tools are for, and when and when not to use them; then, if they think they are ready, let them apply for themself at WP:PERM . JohnCD (talk) 17:20, 8 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Speedy deletion nomination of Bill Barry

[edit]

Hello Newfoundlander&Labradorian,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Bill Barry for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

[edit]

Hi there, since you wrote most of the Danny Williams article, I wanted to touch base with you and explain why I made so many changes to the references. Because of the large number, it may look unconstructive but the edits are legit. It appears that after using the same links for years, CBC News have a new url format which is causing most of the articles from the previous decade to direct to "page not found." The articles are still there, it's just a matter of searching to find the updated url. I was also attempting to fix the links in your other good article, Kathy Dunderdale, but after going through, searching and changing the links, I messed up and closed the page and couldn't get them back. Because of the time frame, there isn't as many dead links as there was in Williams article, just most of the first column, but it's still a lot of links. Out of frustration and the fact I'm half asleep here, I'm done for tonight, but I will continue to fix as many articles as I can, but thought I would also let you know incase you want to take a look at some of the other articles you wrote to make sure the links are good. Cmr08 (talk) 05:16, 14 March 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Hi again, I just went through the Kathy Dunderdale article updating the links, so all references to CBC News should now work. Cmr08 (talk) 02:00, 16 March 2014 (UTC)[reply]

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: ((proposed deletion/dated...))
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

The Right Stuff welcomes submissions including position pieces, instructional articles, or short essays addressing important conservatism-related issues. Post submissions here.

ARBITRATION REPORT
Russian Agents Editing at American Politics?

By Lionelt

After a series of unfortunate events largely self-created, bureaucrat and admin Andrevan was the subject of an Arbitration case for conduct unbecoming. Prior to the case getting underway Andrevan resigned as bureaucrat and admin. A widely discussed incident was when he suggested that some editors he described as "pro-Trump" were paid Russian agents. This resulted in a number of editors from varied quarters denouncing the allegations and voicing support for veteran editors including Winkelvi and the notorious MONGO.

Editors who faced Enforcement action include SPECIFICO (no action), Factchecker atyourservice (three month topic ban ARBAPDS), Netoholic (no action) and Anythingyouwant (indef topic ban ARBAPDS). (Discuss this story)
IN THE MEDIA
Breitbart Versus Wikipedia

By Lionelt

Breitbart News, in response to Facebook's decision to use Wikipedia as a source to fight fake news, has declared war on our beloved pedia. The article in Haaretz describes the Facebook arrangement as Wikipedia's "greatest test in years" as well as a "massive threat" to the encyclopedia that anyone can edit. Breitbart's targeting of Wikipedia has resulted in an "epic battle" with respect to editing at the Breitbart article. The article has also recently experienced a dramatic increase in traffic with 50,000 visitors according to Haaretz. There is no love lost between Breitbart and Wikipedia where editors at the Reliable Sources Noticeboard have criticized the news websites unreliability and have compared it to The Daily Mail.

DISCUSSION REPORT
Liberty and Trump and Avi, Oh my!

By Lionelt

Liberty is one of the largest Christian universities in the world and the largest private non-profit university in the United States. Described as a "bastion of the Christian right" in American politics, the university plays a prominent role in Republican politics. President Donald J. Trump gave his first college commencement speech as sitting president at Liberty University.

DISCUSSION REPORT
WikiProject Conservatism Comes Under Fire

By Lionelt

WikiProject Conservatism was a topic of discussion at the Administrators' Noticeboard/Incident (AN/I). Objective3000 started a thread where he expressed concern regarding the number of RFC notices posted on the Discussion page suggesting that such notices "could result in swaying consensus by selective notification." Several editors participated in the relatively abbreviated six hour discussion. The assertion that the project is a "club for conservatives" was countered by editors listing examples of users who "profess no political persuasion." It was also noted that notification of WikiProjects regarding ongoing discussions is explicitly permitted by the WP:Canvassing guideline.

At one point the discussion segued to feedback about The Right Stuff. Member SPECIFICO wrote: "One thing I enjoy about the Conservatism Project is the handy newsletter that members receive on our talk pages." Atsme praised the newsletter as "first-class entertainment...BIGLY...first-class...nothing even comes close...it's amazing." Some good-natured sarcasm was offered with Objective3000 observing, "Well, they got the color right" and MrX's followup, "Wow. Yellow is the new red."

Admin Oshwah closed the thread with the result "definitely not an issue for ANI" and directing editors to the project Discussion page for any further discussion. Editor's note: originally the design and color of The Right Stuff was chosen to mimic an old, paper newspaper.

RECENT RESEARCH
Research About AN/I

By Lionelt

Reprinted in part from the April 26, 2018 issue of The Signpost; written by Zarasophos

Out of over one hundred questioned editors, only twenty-seven (27%) are happy with the way reports of conflicts between editors are handled on the Administrators' Incident Noticeboard (AN/I), according to a recent survey . The survey also found that dissatisfaction has varied reasons including "defensive cliques" and biased administrators as well as fear of a "boomerang effect" due to a lacking rule for scope on AN/I reports. The survey also included an analysis of available quantitative data about AN/I. Some notable takeaways:

  • 53% avoided making a report due to fearing it would not be handled appropriately
  • "Otherwise 'popular' users often avoid heavy sanctions for issues that would get new editors banned."
  • "Discussions need to be clerked to keep them from raising more problems than they solve."

In the wake of Zarasophos' article editors discussed the AN/I survey at The Signpost and also at AN/I. Ironically a portion of the AN/I thread was hatted due to "off-topic sniping." To follow-up the problems identified by the research project the Wikimedia Foundation Anti-Harassment Tools team and Support and Safety team initiated a discussion.
