More than one Requested articles page?[change source]

Should there be more than one Requested articles page? For example, one for basic things, one for more complicated things (like scientific terms), one for people, one for places... like at en:Wikipedia:Requested articles? TPK 05:06, 12 Jul 2004 (UTC)

I agree! -- 12:58, 4 April 2006 (UTC)
Sounds like it could be worthwhile in the future, but for now I don't think that we have enough articles listed here to warrant that. --Cromwellt|talk|contribs 02:05, 3 August 2006 (UTC)
I agree with Cromwellt, there are not enough pages. --Wpktsfs 20:47, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
Your agreement is appreciated, although your comment was posted more than one year after when this discussion happened. ;) - Huji reply 12:03, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

After creating a request article[change source]

After creating a requsted article, what is the most acceptable task to do? To remove it from this list only? To remove it from this list and add it to the list of articles needing to be expanded? Or to leaving this list, so a bot would later remove the created pages? Do we have a bot assigned to this task at all? Huji 11:43, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

I assumed the answer would be to remove them from this listHuji 12:47, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Wrong. We shouldn't feel free to copy and paste, because it is a violation of copyright, and is not allowed in wikipedia. - Huji reply 13:19, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

What term of Shizuoka is it being refered to?[change source]

There are multiple Wikipedia hits for Shizuoka and I am having trouble trying to find this pathetic human word's term to best suit the article in making.  Kaltxì Na'vi!  13:03, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

It appears to refer to the city. Most wanted are the articles most often linked to, and it appears that the majority of the articles link to the city rather than the prefecture. Griffinofwales (talk) 13:05, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Page needs to be updated.[change source]

Too many red links. --Swordhunter813 (talk) 17:56, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

This page is meant to have redlinks - it's a place for users to request articles that they want creating but may not be able to do so themselves. You can help by turning them blue & create them - it's a wiki, anyone can get involved. Goblin 18:09, 10 April 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Chenzw!

needs something? --C7king (talk) 00:31, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

New![change source]

I added "Charged Particle" as an article. If anybody wants to improve it, go ahead. The Pikachu Who Dared (talk) 21:27, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

wikipedia documentation requests[change source]

I've been trying to find documentation for the parameters for the taxobox template. Is this the place to make a request for that page to be created? (At present, Template:Taxobox has a red link.) The template clearly doesn't work the same way as in the English wikipedia, so I'm not able to figure out how to make the page myself. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 13:14, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

The documentation is right on the Template:Taxobox page. As for how to make the page that is a redlink you should just be able to click on the red link. Can you post what the link is that you see? -DJSasso (talk) 17:17, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, I should have said "how to build the page myself", rather than how to make it. You have changed the page extensively now, so perhaps that will answer my questions (I don't have enough time right not to look in depth). I was looking for descriptions of individual parameters, specifically "name=" and how it interacts with whether the page title is set in italics or not. I tried to follow "See taxobox usage for an explanation." which linked to an old page name. I was wondering why pages like Rubus don't have italic titles, but perhaps that is something that is intended to be different here from En. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 19:07, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
It may be due to some of the changes I made, however I don't see anything that would affect it, but Rubus is italicized here when I look at it now. -DJSasso (talk) 19:21, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
For me, the page title shows in italics at the top of the taxobox, but not in the page heading itself. I'm used to those things being tied together in En. En:Primula is an example of how I'd expect the cleanest coding to be constructed. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 19:52, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
Oh the article title, yeah we might not have the coding necessary in the css of the actual wiki to be able to have that happen here. -DJSasso (talk) 12:21, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
Good to know. In practice I've found that the En coding means that there are subtle errors in the taxobox that also prevent the italics from working, so it is helpful to know that there's no need to hunt for those things here. In any case, there's a work-around using the italic title template. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 13:38, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
Yeah I am by no means an expert on this particular template but the code now matches what en has. So if it isn't happening then there could be a subtle error somewhere else. With our considerably lower editor base (about 25 regulars) the code on this wiki is often years behind where en is so it takes someone interested to fix it up but that is often lacking with so few editors here. -DJSasso (talk) 16:45, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Does there have to be an article in another Wikipedia?[change source]

An editor just removed two entries, giving a reason of "no En article". I think we should be able to request articles that don't exist elsewhere. Is there a reason we shouldn't? --Auntof6 (talk) 18:10, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

That's not quite the point. The point is that the requested article was not one which could demonstrate noteworthiness, and the lack of an En wiki article was supporting evidence of that. Preference must be given to articles which are self-evidently noteworthy and hence worth the effort. Macdonald-ross (talk) 22:22, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Simple explanations of wikipedia mathematics[change source]

Some technical (for the layman) results in mathematics have deep and meaningful consequences which can be understood without an understanding of the meaning. Euclid in ancient times wrote the Elements, which can be understood by anyone familiar with some basic concepts such as lines and points. Abraham Lincoln (a lawyer by trade) famously read it to become familiar with logic, even though he was very far from a mathematician. This is because Euclid's results there are simple and intuitive to the everyone and provide reasoning that can be understood by anyone with the patience to sit still.

A good point to start might be the Fixed Point Theorem, which in Wikipedia is correctly stated as any number of deep results. On the simple wiki, we would naturally expect it to be stated in its simplest form: not on some abstract space but on the two-dimensional Euclidean space (which everyone understands immediately) and explained (viz. proved) with geometry or college algebra. It would be of some interest to collect these simple mathematical results, and the simple wiki seems to me to be a natural place. Is there any interest in this grand project from the community here? Strong Emu Hair Artisan (talk) 10:54, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

Grand projects face the difficulty that experienced editors are few here. Thus, they must proceed slowly by small steps. You might make a sketch for others to fill in, but mostly, probably, you will be filling in the details yourself. If this prospect does not daunt, then yes, go ahead. Flesh out some existing bare-bones articles, pare down some that are too dependent on jargon and advanced concepts, and then add a few articles, with plentiful links to and from existing ones. You will probably find other editors polishing and even extending your work, sooner or later. Jim.henderson (talk) 13:39, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
