Steven Pruitt added to 'People' sectionEdit

After a revert because Pruitt isn't a WMF official I pointed out that the section name 'People' is linked to 'List of Wikipedia people' where, in the first sentence, the descriptor mentions 'editors'. Should we add Steven Pruitt back to the 'People' section? (of course!). Thanks. Randy Kryn (talk) 19:38, 31 January 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Also add Adrianne Wadewitz or any other major editor who both has a page and that page mentions Wikipedia editing prominently. Randy Kryn (talk) 19:41, 31 January 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
For what it's worth, I removed Steven only because I know that I and Adrianne had been removed. I have no opinion on whether all three of us (and anyone else) should be removed: only that the two of us were in the past, so the same standard would apply to Steven. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 19:46, 31 January 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And of course Justin Knapp as well (edit conflict, was here to add that suggestion to the discussion). Let's get them all in here. There are eight winners of the Wikipedian/median of the Year who have pages, and they are already listed on that page which is included in the section.

Let's not do that. See discussion re: Seedfeeder above. Nikkimaria (talk) 02:34, 1 February 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]


This is another offline wikipedia software, may be added after Kiwix. Uziel302 (talk) 13:32, 21 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikipedia botsEdit

Should Wikipedia bots be included here? Ypna (talk) 12:33, 27 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Should Wiki rabbit hole and Wikiracing be included here? Ypna (talk) 08:45, 13 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Bots, sure, why not. In the 'Community' section which already has the 'Citation needed' link. Bots are friends (not food) and an important part of the Community (at least their creators and operators are, which is what a link would acknowledge). The other two are probably not Wikipedia specific enough for the template. Randy Kryn (talk) 10:12, 13 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Depths of WikipediaEdit

Should Depths of Wikipedia be included? Ypna (talk) 09:43, 10 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"That's a bingo", probably in the section 'Content use'. Randy Kryn (talk) 10:05, 10 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"People" sectionEdit

Should all entries at List of Wikipedia people be included in the template's "People" section? ---Another Believer (Talk) 18:34, 10 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"Similar projects"Edit

As this template grows, I wonder if the "Similar projects" section remains necessary. Sure, the links are related to Wikipedia but are they about Wikipedia? Do editors think these entries are relevant enough to keep? ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:13, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
