Center for Countering Digital Hate [ edit ]

The Center for Countering Digital Hate article contained quite a lot of loaded language: I've tried to remove some of it, but I think some review by non-involved editors would be useful to ensure that the article meets the WP:NPOV criteria. -- The Anome (talk) 07:19, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Constituent country [ edit ]

I notice a series of, doubtless good faith, edits to the infoboxes of county and council area articles which include the noting of the "Constituent country". This is one example. Is my memory correct that this term is deprecated? Mutt Lunker (talk) 10:43, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

It is, the citation record shows the use of country not constituent country -----Snowded TALK 17:06, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. Mutt Lunker (talk) 18:38, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
It's being used as a descriptive for what kind of country England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland are. Merely pointing out that they're not sovereign states, not independent. GoodDay (talk) 17:10, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
WP:NOTFORUM, that's not the question I asked. Yes, I know what it's being used as, thank you very much, and you've already given me a sneak view of your position on the matter, not that I wasn't aware already. Are you having difficulty keeping track of what you said, to whom and where or are you actively attempting to provoke a reinstatement of your BI topic ban (or indeed indef)? Mutt Lunker (talk) 18:38, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
Not seeking a forum for anything. GoodDay (talk) 18:54, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
Why answer a question that wasn't asked then? I sought to confirm the wording's deprecation, not to tediously revive a discussion of its merits. Transparent opportunism. Mutt Lunker (talk) 19:04, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
@GoodDay: Fair warning, the whole issue of country v constituent country was resolved some time ago and your constant snipping on the subject is problematic. If it continues I am going to go the Arbitration enforcement and ask that your topic ban on BI articles be reinstituted and a futher block be placed on you making any comment on a talk page which, broadly interpreted, could be seen as provocative and/or not related to specific changes to the article. Of course the community may not agree with me but I'd remind you that I was one of the editors who supported your being returned to Wikipedia after an indefinate ban. You do great work on many articles but this is something you need to drop. -----Snowded TALK 10:45, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

FAR for Edward VIII [ edit ]

I have nominated Edward VIII for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. (t · c) buidhe 05:32, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Fellows of the RSA [ edit ]

It was recently pointed out to me that I mistook the RSA for the Royal Society on Paul Atherton. However, before I self-revert, I wanted to seek input on whether adding FRSA as a post-nominal is actually warranted in this—or any—case. According to the RSA's website, there are over 30,000 FRSAs in the world (and you can apparently apply online). That doesn't seem terribly selective. But a post-nominal always looks impressive, so it seems likely that the addition of the post-nominal would give readers an inflated picture of the reputation of the fellow in question. Given the existence of {{Post-nominals}}, I figured that there was some community consensus that including post-nominals was worth doing. But this particular one seems a bit WP:UNDUE and/or misleading, at least to me. AleatoryPonderings (talk) 22:41, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

Article of the week tomorrow [ edit ]

Wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Philip Mountbatten will be getting a bunch of pageviews tomorrow from WMF social media accounts that will be highlighting it as the "article of the week". It's in bad shape—anyone want to fix it up? {{u|Sdkb}}talk 04:41, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

What is this?
