"The American journalist George Kennan (1854-1924) spent many years travelling in and writing about Russia. After the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in 1881, Kennan wanted to go to Siberia to examine the penal system and the punishment of political exiles. In this unflinching account, published in two volumes in 1891, Kennan gives vivid descriptions, accompanied by extensive illustrations of the prisons and labour camps and the harsh lives of the people forced to live there."


Extended content

WP:REDUNDANTFORK and the entire Wikipedia:Content forking page was written specifically in regards to articles, and states nothing about Portal namespace content. Fact is, there is nothing about portals on the page at all; even the word "portal" is not present. Conversely, the word "article" is used 100 times throughout the page (as of this post, link).

Ultimately, the use of Redundant fork toward Portal namespace content is a slippery slope and overextension of the Content forking guideline page, as well as the intent of the page when it was written; it's about articles. That said, I can understand that others feel that RF it is applicable toward automated portals. However, per the slippery slope, Redundant fork could then potentially be used to rationalize the deletion of old-school, curated portal pages as well, since they also present content from various articles.

  • Wikipedia:Did you know specifically refers only to Main page content. It was not written regarding portals, and does not pertain to portals. Fact is, the word "portal" does not even appear on the page; it is a fallacious synthesis of policy to apply Main page guidelines to portals. North America1000 22:26, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Deletion review requestEdit

Deletion review for Internet Killed TelevisionEdit

An editor has asked for a deletion review of Internet Killed Television. Because you closed the deletion discussion for this page, speedily deleted it, or otherwise were interested in the page, you might want to participate in the deletion review. NinaUTA (talk) 17:40, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi @NinaUTA: N.b. See below, which I have copied here from Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2019 July 10. The matter was attended to while I was away from Wikipedia. Cheers, North America1000 21:02, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Need your help!Edit

Hi Northamerica1000, I am having issues with one area at Portal:Traditional African religions. I have already created the Selected articles archive page as well as the corresponding page layout. However, when I try to give a footer=More articles... instruction on the main page in order to link to the archive page, It does not link. Do you know how to fix this? Once I know how to fix this I should be able to do the same for the other relevant sections. Although the Selected biography section is showing Archive/Nominations - linking to the corresponding archive page, I had to manually do this on each selected bio. Obviously I need to change that once I figure out how to do it properly. If I'm not mistaken, I think the change should take place on the main page itself. However I am having problems with it. Please help! Thanks.Tamsier (talk) 09:15, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

  • Hello @Tamsier: Fixed. I accomplished the improvement by adding links to the portal box footers (diff, diff, diff). Thanks for your work to improve Wikipedia. North America1000 10:17, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
Fantastic! Thanks for your help.Tamsier (talk) 10:27, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
@Tamsier: No problem. Let me know if you need any additional assistance. North America1000 10:28, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

I would like to gift you this barnstar for remaining calm, honest and helpful and not getting baited by people who argue in bad faith. Hecato (talk) 19:47, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

Moving forward by removing the negative personEdit

Perhaps best we try to have a conversation without that brown administrator jumping in and insulting everyone and saying the same thing over and over. Can't move forward when we have someone unwilling to hear others out and going out of their way to be combative. IRC chat might be a good way to see what proposals the community can move forward on. ----Moxy 🍁 21:47, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

Since you created Category:Cream soupsEdit

I was wondering if you'd like to weigh in at Talk:Creamy soup. Thanks, Зенитная Самоходная Установка (talk) 15:43, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
