Transcluded subpages for RfD Whoops

I think we should use subpages for RfD threads, which are then transcluded on the main RfD page (like on the English Wikipedia). It would make archiving and finding deletion discussions a lot more convenient and efficient. Any objections?--TBC 11:48, 18 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

VGA/GA again

Hello community; Our current GA and VGA have some criteria they must meet, before they can be promoted to the respective level. One of them reads:

The article must have gone through a few revisions, possibly by different editors. No one writes perfect articles.

It is item number 3 in the GA criteria, and number 4 for the VGA criteria. Discussions On the talk page for the GA criteria and the talk page of a VGA candidate have raised doubts of how this should be interpreted; and that it should perhaps be re-worded or deleted. The original discussion can be found here. The idea at the time was to require several edits (in the form of a review or ipmrovement process), but to make the different editors part optional. It looks like current interpretation seems to be to require the different editor part (By interpreting No one writes perfect articles as No single person writers perfect articles, and then taking that as strengthening the different editors part). In any case, I hereby opened the can of worms. --Eptalon (talk) 10:40, 27 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Keep the criterion, but clarify it. An option might also be to drop the criterion from the GA criteria, but keep it (with an clarified interpretation) in the VGA criteria. And note, this was not meant as a vote, but rather a Request for discussion. --Eptalon (talk) 10:58, 27 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Rephrase - I think rephrasing it will be better. As discussed, having only one person edit an article will gradually cause him to "distort" the facts of the article and introduce POV. Chenzw  Talk  11:05, 27 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'll try to explain what I mean by clarify. If I take the original statement above, I'll iterpret it, as follows:
  1. We do not promote one-revision articles. Multiple/Several revisions are a sign that there was some editing, and possibly improvement to the article. Therefore we want future (V)GAs to have several revisions. This is required, it cannot be changed by consensus in a vote to promote a particular article.
  2. In general it is a good thing that multiple editors have seen the article. This is however not required, but optional. The community can choose to promote a particular candidate, even though it was only edited by one person.
The problem we have above is that the No one writes perfect articles is taken to mean that an article, either a VGA or a GA to be cannot be written by one editor alone. If we change this to No one writes perfect articles from scratch (or similar; we need to find a wording that is easy to understand. The wording needs to clarify that in fact we need multiple revisions, but we don't need multiple editors).
Is there a need for two versions of this, like only requiring multiple revisions for GA's, and requiring muliple revisions and muiltiple ediors for VGAs?--Eptalon (talk) 12:11, 27 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I think you have to be careful about mixing up "good practice" with mandatory criteria. It's pretty clear that it's extremely unlikely that someone will go for GA/VGA for an article with created correctly in a single edit. But, if they had, so what? If after the two week voting period the community believe it to be flawless (again, highly unlikely) then the article should be promoted. Of course, this is a wiki, we have manuals of style and other guidelines with which articles should comply and the chances of an article making GA/VGA without the input of multiple editors are extraordinarily slim. But once again, I can't believe there is a requirement to mandate this. Especially a vague one which is open to misinterpretation. I don't believe we need this criterion for either GA or VGA.

Political Jurisdiction Articles

Several years ago, when the English Wikipedia was relatively new, someone created a bot that created new articles for every county, city, and town in the United States and possibly in other countries as well. It automatically retrieved demographic information from census websites and put that information into sentences. I mention this because, in my opinion, the Simple English Wikipedia is severely lacking when it comes to information on counties, cities, towns, and other political jurisdictions. Someone who knew what they were doing could make a bot that could quickly create these articles, making the demographics much easier to understand than they are in normal English. It would also get the ball rolling so other users could flesh these articles out. Anyone with me here? --Andrew from NC (talk) 11:09, 27 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't think it makes much sense at the moment to do this automagically. We could say we want every city that is bigger than 100.000 people in this wikipedia, for example. The problem is that historical importance does not depend on city size; Verdun (known for the battle in WW I) has about 20.000 people, Cluny (Very ipmortant in Church history) has between 4.000 and 5.000. Common bastides range from about 500 people (Monpazier) to about 50.000 (Montauban). If I now say I want all the places bigger than 5.000 people, we end up with loads and loads of articles no one cares about. --Eptalon (talk) 12:27, 27 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There are people out there who care about even the smallest of towns. If you look at traffic statistics on the English Wikipedia, even some of the smallest towns are getting 50 or more hits per month. If you are opposed to creating these articles automatically, would you be opposed to someone doing it manually? --Andrew from NC (talk) 12:50, 27 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, let me rephrase: Simply creating articles for places bigger than X people is not the way to go. If however you came up with a list of places that (for some reason or other) can be considered significant, it does not matter whether the respecive articles are created by a program, or by hand. But before anyone develop or run a bot to do this, please keep in mind that automatically created articles need to be reviewed by a person; at the moment we are less than 50 regular editors here. We do not have the manpower to review a bunch of articles for places that may be on the brink of being significant. If you want to do something in that direction, you could start by looking if we have all countries (recognised, unrecognised) with their capitals (and descriptions other than ABC is the capital of XYZ. nnnnnnn people live there.) --Eptalon (talk) 12:58, 27 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(unindenting) If you think that Bearton (imaginary name) is important, even though only 50 people live there today, you create an article about it, saying that it is there and there, today it has a popluation of 50, but it is important because some bearhunters invented a method using wooden spoons to hunt bears there. Thats funamentally different from automatically creating articles for all places 50 people or bigger. Nothing Gulch may also only have 50 people, but may not be as important (don't quote me on the names, I invented them; if they really exist, no pun intended towards the respective populations; they are used as examples). --Eptalon (talk) 13:08, 27 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

VGA:Improve wording for Comprehensiveness criterion

While we are at i,t the VGA criteria (item 2) say

The article must be comprehensive. A comprehensive article is not missing any major facts and details.

Just a very basic question: Given that our average editor does not know everything on every possible subject, it will be very difficult to decide if a particular article is missing anything. How could we change the requirement that it becomes easier to handle. Dropping it is not an option, because the original VGA criteria did not have it; look at some of the demoted VGA's to see why. --Eptalon (talk) 12:43, 27 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Maybe we could change it to
The article must state all the major facts that are mentioned in the given sources.

It's really my opinion, but I'm open for any opposes on it. Feel free to tweak it a little if needed. -- RyanCross (talk) 14:45, 27 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I made a small mention of this in an earlier section, but I wonder if "disambiguation" is a very good name for such pages as "ambiguous" is not really Simple English and Basic English says opposites should be made with "un-". It looks like this was talked about two or three years ago on Wikipedia talk:Disambiguation, but no agreement was reached. Does anyone else think the name could be better, and what could it be? Hippopotamus (talk) 00:54, 29 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't think there is any other simpler word to use other than "disambiguation". I personally think we should stick to "disambiguation". We have 500-1000 disambiguation pages and we would have to change all of them since they all have the {{disambig}} template on them. -- RyanCross (talk) 00:57, 29 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The pages shouldn't be a problem as it's a redirected template and/or short bot run. I'll look in thesaurus and see if I can find anything better to suggest. Given "disambiguation" is at least five syllables, there must be something more simple... Hippopotamus (talk) 01:25, 29 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I forgot that it transludes into the disambiguations, but we would have to move all the pages that have "disambiguation" at the end of the article name to the new name if found. -- RyanCross (talk) 01:34, 29 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's easy to rename all those pages with a bot in less than a couple of hours. Whether there is a better word is the question... Hippopotamus (talk) 02:43, 29 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(unindenting) Disambiguation has the Latin ambi in it. This means both (of two); A quick check, Spanish uses desambiguación, French uses homonymie, German has Begriffserklärung. The French word is basically the same than the Latin-nased disambiguation, except that they take all from Greek. It means words that are spelled the same (but have a different meaning). The German very roughly translates to Explanation of terms. People that have a Romance language (those are based on Latin) as their first language, will porbably have little trouble understanding disambiguation. If we come up and say Word explanation (for example), this might be more difficult to understand than the disambiguation (or similar) they are used to. --Eptalon (talk) 08:58, 29 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'll certainly agree that the Latin/Greek-based languages use words similar to disambiguation. In different languages Mandarin Chinese uses 消歧义 (two words in English, second one looks like "ambiguity"), Arabic seems to use توضيح ("clarification") and Finnish täsmennyssivu ("further clarification"). I'm just not sure I'd like to have to explain "disambiguation" to a child. It's certain not a word I often use in "real life"! Hippopotamus (talk) 14:41, 29 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I would think clarification would do, rather near to German Begriffsklärung. But you learn what it means from the pages, not from the word disambiguation or clarification anyhow. --Cethegus (talk) 20:52, 7 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
=All you have to do is come up with a story about how somebody managed to come up with the word in the first place and I think everybody will be satisfied andb grow into it. WFPMWFPM (talk) 03:37, 26 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

On words with more than one meaning you are redirected to a page called, for example, "Example (disambiguation)". To keep with Simple English, I would suggest "Example (List of meanings)" or "Example (Words with many meanings)" ~ R.T.G 03:41, 26 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Guideline vs policy

Hey guys. I've noticed that the criteria for GA and VGA are defined as "guidelines" not "policy". This means that "criteria" for good and very good articles aren't really criteria, they're simply suggestions. Is this an area that needs to be tightened up? While we're there we can ditch the pointless "guideline criterion" which says an article needs to be edited by multiple editors. The Rambling Man (talk) 17:10, 30 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I suppose we could have our own en:WP:IAR as well? Like everything else, discussion seems to have stalled out. Cassandra 17:19, 30 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well since the criteria are already declared as guidelines, not policy, I think that's inherent. Which is a problem more here on Simple English Wikipedia because these criteria ought to be rules, so it makes them unambiguous and clear to follow. The Rambling Man (talk) 17:31, 30 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'd be against a en:WP:IAR as it's confusing enough enough to have a rule to ignore rules in English Wikipedia, let alone in Simple English. A version that talks about common sense might be better. Something along the lines of en:WP:UCS maybe. Hippopotamus (talk) 19:08, 30 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I tend to agree, not convinced that Simple English is ready for an IAR yet. That means criteria should be exactly that, criteria, not ambiguous, debatable, mis-interpretable wishy-washy guidelines. That's why I'm keen to get rid of the "edited by others" as well - it's already proven to be ambiguous. If we aim for one thing here to help Simple English editors, it's clear, unambiguous policies. The Rambling Man (talk) 19:15, 30 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We should should judge the outcome of the editing, not the process of getting there (i.e. number of edits/editors). Since there are less editors on this Wikipedia than some others, it may be that editors work alone on an article for sometime and improve it through their own changes. Hippopotamus (talk) 01:09, 1 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And we then use that to say that at least two edits; possibly more than one editor is a bad rule? --Eptalon (talk) 06:54, 1 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'll be bold: What would change, if the guidelines were policies? - We'd had to go through a vote; with possibly a minimum number of voters, and a minimum percentage of support votes. (Very) Good Arricle is an extra tag that shows an article is about a particular quality; it meets a given standard, and a vote showed that most editors (who voted) are fine with sticking on the tag. Also, if this becomes policy, changing it is more difficult to do; I am fine discussing/adapting the criteria we use for a particular category; Personally, I wouldn't be at ease making this policy. --Eptalon (talk) 10:45, 1 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't think "at least two edits; possibly more than one editor" is required. It's that simple. What are the odds of creating the perfect article in one edit? I'd say zero. And even then, if it was perfect, the reviewers would have to agree that before voting for its promotion. If they weren't happy they'd either make edits themselves or not support the promotion. As for making the criteria "policy", I have a feeling it's a bad idea too, but right now the criteria aren't great and need some work to avoid ambiguity and miscomprehension. The Rambling Man (talk) 10:56, 1 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Let's see what the others say; If we were to rework the criteria, we would need to fix a time limit (eg. a month) too. The last time took far too long. --Eptalon (talk) 11:02, 1 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

NPOV / Neutrality templates

What's the difference between the {{NPOV}} template and the {{Neutrality}} template? The Neutrality template seems more simple language, but is there a deep meaning I'm missing. If there is a different, is it too subtle for Simple English? Hippopotamus (talk) 05:00, 1 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"China" categories (neutrality)

Related to the above, the categories for "China" weren't very neutral. I tried to copy English Wikipedia which appears to have come to some sort of compromise. Before the categories may only have favored the views of the People's Republic of China. Anyway, if someone could double check, as I'm not an expert. I just stumbled across it all while categorizing a university article. Hippopotamus (talk) 05:00, 1 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The GA/VGA system in general

Most of you probably know already, but the general system is as follows:

  1. An article is identified as a candidate to become a (very) good article. Work is done to it, it may be listed at Peer Review, if needed...
  2. When it meets half of the criteria (this means: pick any five from the good article criteria or the very good article criteria) it can be listed at Wikipedia:Proposed good articles or Wikipedia:Proposed very good articles. The respective tag can be added to the article; not its talk page.
  3. There is a period of (at most) two weeks where the nomination can be discussed, and the article can be generally worked on to meet all of the criteria.
  4. After the two weeks (or sooner, at the choice of the nominator), it can be moved to the voting section; At this time, only minor fixes are expected; I (personally) do not expect that the article is completely rewritten from scrach at that time (but perhaps that a few paragraphs are changed for consistency, ease of reading; that references are added, etc.)
  5. If the article gets enough support, it can be promoted after the week voting.

(If the nomination is withdrawn, please archive it).

I knew most of you knew this. I just wanted to say how it was intended; It is also listed in the respective criteria page.--Eptalon (talk) 10:38, 1 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for this, Eptalon.

I think the time to start the voting process is when the article meets all the criteria of the given category, and you feel that you can reach the number of required votes (70% support, 5 votes min for GA, 80% support, 6 votes minimum for VGA). Please note that current understanding is that muliple editors are optional for both categories; also the there must not be many redlinks left was left vague on purpose; we could not agree on an an exact number/percentage. We were fine with the vagueness.--Eptalon (talk) 10:54, 1 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There's an RSS feeed on RecentChanges at least; see in the "toolbox" below the search button. Cassandra 02:25, 6 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
