Democratic primaries mapEdit

Good work on the map. Can you change the colour for New York? Sources indicate it's unlikely New York will hold their primary in February, it's just scheduled that way by default. Thanks. Onetwothreeip (talk) 03:19, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

@Onetwothreeip: yes, I'm aware of that – I worked on the timeline section in the original article. The prose notes attached to both lists explicitly note that these are only the currently scheduled dates and may be subject to change; legally, New York remains scheduled for February and lawmakers traditionally move it in June. However, one elections commissioner in the state seems to indicate that the primary may actually be moved earlier in the 2020 cycle than April, and instead to "like February or March of next year". I can add a further clarification to this point to the statewide polling article as well, but as of now, it's scheduled for February, and the map reflects the current state of legislation in each state, and doesn't speculate on where states will ultimately end up.

That's fine, we should definitely say somewhere that it is scheduled for February, but since our sources say it most likely won't be we shouldn't be reporting that it will be, especially not in the map. Best to keep it grey for now before we get confirmation. Onetwothreeip (talk) 04:55, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Bold for presidential campaignsEdit

Hello. You recently removed the bold lettering from Julian Castro 2020 presidential campaign, citing MOS:BOLDTITLE as justification. However, numerous other articles on major presidential campaigns, such as Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign, Barack Obama 2008 presidential campaign, and Donald Trump 2020 presidential campaign do have part of the first sentence in bold. Is there some sort of consensus on this? I don't think "(election year) presidential campaign of (candidate)" goes against Wiki policy on bolding, as it more or less just states the title, just slightly rephrased.

Thanks for pointing that out. I did think their account looked a little suspicious when they started on the Israeli election. I'll keep an eye out for them in future. Cheers, Number 57 20:35, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
