Charlottetown-ParkdaleEdit

The 2016 mix proportion referendum results were not implemented & even if they were, it would've been adopted to all 27 of the PEI legislature's seats, not just Charlottetown-Parkdale. So again, I don't see the reason why you're placing it in that one article. GoodDay (talk) 15:04, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

PS: Which of the Ontario & Quebec provincial districts, list referendums? GoodDay (talk) 15:14, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

I've opened up a discussion at WP:CANADA, concerning this topic. GoodDay (talk) 16:33, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

Why are you fixated on that 1 district? Wouldn't it best to put that 2016 referendum in the Next Prince Edward Island general election article? GoodDay (talk) 16:15, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Very well, seeing as the others are in favor of it at WP:CANADA? I've restored your addition. Hopefully, you'll fall through & add it to the other 26 districts, too. GoodDay (talk) 16:31, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

FWIW - You've forgotten 4 districts. GoodDay (talk) 04:26, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

Possibility of providing your input on a Peer Review for Regine Velasquez's entryEdit

Hi Earl Andrew,

I'm writing to ask whether you would consider having a look at the article. I'm aware that you've been involved with a few PRs before. I've given it a major rewrite and complete overhaul. I began working on the article late October when it looked like this and somehow ended up rewriting the whole thing and aiming for potentially FA. This isn't a process I've been through before, but I have been reading the reviews here in preparation, and am familiar with FAC demands. I would very much appreciate a fresh set of eyes and happily address any concerns you may have.

Thanks! Pseud 14 (talk) 13:29, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

=Newfoundland ScottiesEdit

Hi Earl, I Would like to add the newfoundland scotties that starts today but it will only let me create it is a draftSportsfan11286 (talk) 18:48, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

OK, create it as a draft, and I will move it. I've been holding out on creating it myself because I haven't been able to find a full roster of the teams. -- Earl Andrew - talk 21:53, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
Never mind, I found the team list here. -- Earl Andrew - talk 21:57, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

"Strong man" delete curlers bio stubsEdit

Hi Earl! Can you explain to Boleyn about sources for curlers? I can't. He/She deleted/moved_to_draft number of stubs (or non-stubs - including "Victoria Moiseeva") I created. Look on my talk page, themes "Sources" and "A page you started (Marlene Albrecht) has been reviewed!" and "Ways to improve Malene Krause" and "Moved to draft". -- Alexey Gustow (talk) 07:14, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Canadian EnglishEdit

FYI, this edit at Harrington, Quebec causes {{convert}} to display an error message when the page is previewed, and a warning when saved. The only valid option is |sp=us which gives "meter" instead of the default "metre". Please delete |sp=us if "metre" is wanted. Johnuniq (talk) 22:11, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

Nomination of Extreme communities of Canada for deletionEdit

 

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Extreme communities of Canada is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Extreme communities of Canada until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Madg2011 (talk) 06:23, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

Edit

Standard Wikipedia practice is to exclude title sponsors from the article titles of sporting events like this. Thus we acknowledge the Ford sponsorship in the lead but not as the article title. ViperSnake151  Talk  02:54, 9 April 2018 (UTC)

Could you provide a link to that policy? I have seen other sport articles that contradict this. I understand that WP:OTHERTHINGSEXIST, but the sheer amount of exceptions leads me to wonder. Also, we have to follow WP:COMMONNAME, which in the case of many curling events is up for debate. I'd rather we discuss the matter at WP:CURLING before unilaterally moving articles. -- Earl Andrew - talk 13:40, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
