Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Stala & SO. albumsEdit


A tag has been placed on Category:Stala & SO. albums requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more 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 you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

About A-class topiconsEdit

Hello, my name is Rebestalic

I've seen that you recently removed the A-class topicon on the article for Nina Simone. There is, however, an A-class topicon alongside a Good Article topicon in Battle of Pusan Perimeter--should I remove that, as per what you did?

And I haven't found any guidelines on whether to display A-class topicons or not. Take a look at the content assessment page though, notice how the A-class field has its own topicon displayed, whereas the B, C, Start, Stub and List ones don't

I apologise if I bothered you Rebestalic[leave a message....] 11:20, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

@Rebestalic: I am not aware of any policy or guideline recommending their inclusion. We have included stars for featured content for a long time, and, after a discussion, including them for GA articles. But it seems that some people have taken it upon themselves to include them for A-class articles without any centralised discussion or consensus. (Maybe there was and I missed it, but my guess is not.) They should be removed; if people want them there, we need to have it written into the guidelines.

Well you are a broom 😂 So I shall follow your recommendations
Thank you for the help and very fast reply, Rebestalic[leave a message....] 11:35, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
@Rebestalic: I've just had a look; they were only used on a handful of articles. Mostly articles about military history (and I know the relevant WikiProject makes good use of A-class). I can see why people would want the icon present, but I think there would need to be some site-wide consensus on use, rather than some individual editors deciding to include it.

I see. Would you like me to start a forum or something on displaying A-class topicons? Perhaps the Village Pump? No, the Village Pump site says it's not for discussion... hmm Rebestalic[leave a message....] 20:50, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
If you think that there should be A-class icons present on articles in that way, then yes, you should propose it somewhere. WP:VPR may not be a bad bet. If think not having them is for the best, you don't need to do anything. Josh Milburn (talk) 21:01, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
