Proposed deletion of Ifeanyi Ararume Edit


The article Ifeanyi Ararume has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. jlwoodwa (talk) 18:49, 21 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Query about WikiProject assessment banners Edit

Hello, Aymatth2,

I have a question about Wikipedia:Village pump (proposals)/Archive 198#Project-independent quality assessments closure. Not a complaint about the closure but how this change might affect pages that I monitor. Semi-regularly, I look over WikiProjects and sometimes change the status of the project to reflect an increased or decreased level of activity. Over the years, I've discovered that marking a WikiProject as "inactive" can affect or remove the quality assessment categories from articles. Occasionally, when all of the assessment categories for an inactive WikiProject are emptied, they are sometimes deleted.

Recently, I've noticed a new phenomena that I wonder might have something to do with the quality assessment banner change. To be upfront, I'm not well-versed on the article assessment process and even less so on banner templates, my interest in this subject has to do with the categories. But now I'm coming across WikiProjects where the some previously full categories are now emptied but others have been left alone. I think this will be better explained with an example, Wikipedia:WikiProject Insects/ant task force. Right now, all of the categories in Category:Ant task force articles by quality have been emptied but not the categories in Category:Ant task force articles by importance. And there are a large number of uncategorized by partially assessed articles in Category:Ant task force articles. These "by quality" categories were not emptied before now or I would have run into this issue months ago when I was last reviewing WikiProject categories. Over the past few months, I've run into other examples of where the "by quality" categories were emptied but not the "by importance" ones are not.

A slightly similar case can be found with Wikipedia:WikiProject Cricket/Bangladesh cricket task force where the categories in Category:Bangladesh cricket articles by quality have been emptied but many articles in Category:Bangladesh cricket task force articles. If you look at Talk:2013–14 Bangladeshi cricket season, for example, the tag says that it is ranked as a Stub-class but Category:Stub-Class Bangladesh cricket articles is empty.

Could this be a problem localized to Task Forces of WikiProject? Or is this emptying of categories due to changes in the Talk page banners? Sometimes the status changes can take months to affect the emptying of categories but this doesn't seem to be the issue with the Ant task force or Bangladesh cricket task force. What do you think might be causing the emptying out of these categories, especially when other assessment categories haven't been emptied? Thanks for any insight you can provide or a pointer on whom I should talk to about this or where I might go. I'm really a neophyte when it comes to understanding the ramifications of templates.

Also the case with all of the "by quality" categories in Category:WikiProject Ethiopia articles but not the "by importance" ones and with Category:Hymenoptera articles, Category:WikiProject Philippine History, Category:WikiProject Monotremes and Marsupials, Category:WikiProject Shaktism articles and Category:Taskforce Jupiter articles and that is probably enough examples for you to check out.

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Lists of indigenous peoples of Russia Edit


A tag has been placed on Category:Lists of indigenous peoples of Russia indicating that it is currently empty, and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion. If it remains empty for seven days or more, it may be deleted under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and removing the speedy deletion tag. plicit 12:04, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
