Saidye Bronfman Award

Hi there. If we moved List of Laureates of the Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Arts over the redirect to Governor General's Awards in Visual and Media Arts, how would you feel about merging Saidye Bronfman Award into that main article. Or, as another option, moving the Saidye Bronfman Award winners list there into the stub you created this spring, so readers can find all the Saidye Bronfman Award info in one place? Or of course just leaving things as they are, but I'm having trouble imagining what the content is ever going to be at Saidye Bronfman Award, if we don't have the winners list there. best, Shawn in Montreal (talk) 14:29, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi Shawn in Montreal, no problem either way. I created the article as one of several articles on notable awards so that biographies of artists who have won these awards can be link to them. Some consistency between those articles might be desirable. The List of Laureates of the Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Arts stands out a bit as the only "List of" article in Category:Canadian art awards.

Oh and guess who created it, I see. I'll do the page move first. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 22:36, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Kyrgyz in Russia

Kyrgyz in Russia - this page is not about all Kyrgyz people. Why you undid my last edit?Friendwip.kg (talk) 18:13, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Hello Friendwip.kg This is entirely a procedural revert. I reverted your edit because you blanked the page, but did not explain why you did so, leaving an empty page. If you meant to delete the redirect (which you can't do, because you're not an administrator) or nominate it for deletion, you should take it to Redirects for discussion instead. Now, as to the reason why it ought to exist; it is appropriate that a subject that concerns a subgroup (Kyrgyz in Russia) redirects to an article about a larger group (all Kyrgyz people) until such time that sufficient material exists to support a standalone article. You could start with something similar to Kyrgyz_people#In_Afghanistan and then write Kyrgyz people in Russia once there is enough material for a standalone article. Kyrgyz_people#In_China is not a good example, because the main article is a copy of the paragraph. If you intend to write such an article, please do so, but do not just blank the page.

Notability

I would disagree, being nominated for an Aria is similar to being nominated for an Oscar. It carries weight, I can research and source notable characters that are nominated for oscars but never actually won. Would you agree with this statement? As per the notability requirements "The person has received a well-known and significant award or honor, or has been nominated for such an award several times." AllAboutTom (talk) 06:18, 15 August 2017 (UTC)AllAboutTom Hi, I'm Mduvekot. AllAboutTom, thanks for creating Dw Norton! I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. I don't see that being a member of a band that has been nominated for an award, but did not win the award, suffices to establish individual notability for the subject. The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. Mduvekot (talk) 17:29, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi AllAboutTom. I'm not quite sure which statement you're asking me to agree with. I don't think being nominated for an ARIA award is similar to being nominated for an Oscar. I do think it caries some weight, and may be mentioned in an article of an otherwise notable individual. Several nominations may help to establish notability for an individual. I'm not sure what showing me "notable characters that are nominated for oscars but never actually won" would accomplish. Being nominated for an Oscar several times establishes notability, but it is quite possible to be notable despite not winning an Oscar. Now, as to why I think Norton may not meet the criterion set out in WP:ANYBIO: The person has received a well-known and significant award or honor, or has been nominated for such an award several times. It's simply that the band that he's a member of was nominated for an award, not Norton. The band is notable. Individual notability could be supported by several nominations for notable awards for Norton himself, but that was not the case. I hope that explains my reasoning. My suggestion would be to focus less on the award and look for substantial coverage in independent, reliable sources. All the best,Mduvekot (talk) 11:52, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Technology update:

  • Rentier has created a NPP browser in WMF Labs that allows you to search new unreviewed pages using keywords and categories.
