List of Circuit Judges ArticleEdit
Hello, a user recently created the List of current judges of the United States courts of appeals article and has been populating it and linking it to various federal courts pages. It's my impression that this page is immensely redundant, as Template:United States courts of appeals judges and the individual pages for the United States court of appeals already exist. Do you think that List of current judges of the United States courts of appeals would be a viable AFD candidate? – JocularJellyfish TalkContribs 00:36, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
- Comment @Safiel:@JocularJellyfish: PLEASE READ - FROM THE ORGINAL CREATOR. I created this list because I was searching in vain for a list of all the appeals court judges in one location. The list exists nowhere on the internet (after a pretty thorough search). I was interested in a list because of the recent supreme court hoopla and many nominees come from the appeals courts. It's just convenient to have them in one place. It gives you a solid overview of the system visually. It allows you to quickly compare the courts. The data on the nominating president is critical because it gives you an idea of the ideological balance of the court and the appeals court as a whole. All that said, its become of a bit of a passion project and my introduction to being an editor on wikipedia. I've spent many hours on it even though the core data comes from the existing appeals courts pages. Updating it isnt bad at all. Once a month I go to the pages and bring the data to my main list. I'll add that the page is already seeing hundreds of views daily - some people are interested. I cannot see a good reason to delete the page. I appreciate your concern and for taking the time to adress some issues and for the past work you've done on wikipedia. But I'd really like to keep this page going. At the least maybe we can assess six months from now? Thoughts?
