Consent search case lawEdit

I'd suggest changing the title of your article to indicate it is the United States only (assuming you are not expanding the article for more jurisdictions).--Cahk (talk) 10:02, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi Cahk and thanks for dropping by. I'm currently working on a set of related pages, so I'd like to ask for your input. Pages are:
and some redirects. For example: Stop and frisk, Stop and frisk case law, Consensual search. Would you suggest renaming all of them? Some of the titles would get unwieldy..."United States stop and frisk case law", etc.
Also, I would suggest some of these terms are American only. Especially "terry stop" (from Terry v. Ohio) and "stop and frisk." Seahawk01 (talk) 01:37, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
Consent search case law of the United States prob isn't too unwieldy. For terms that are explicit a country-only phenomenon, I suppose it wouldn't necessarily be needed to add United States to the title.--Cahk (talk) 11:01, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Since other countries have search & seizure protections, and have restrictions on the validity of coerced consent, when there are articles on those cases, it would be appropriate to subdivide this article by country, rather than have the few non-US cases (that have Wikipedia article) ignored. --Bejnar (talk) 16:54, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

A cup of coffee for you!Edit

  I have been away from WikProject Home Living for a while. I am still interested but have some other obligations for a while.

I am here for the long term and there is no end date. Please excuse me for a bit. Blue Rasberry (talk) 00:41, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

New York City housing crisis moved to draftspaceEdit

An article you recently created, New York City housing crisis, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

An aside to this, here is the converation we had with you over IRC that you asked us to post here: (removed link at request of other users) TheMesquitobuzz 03:11, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
Hello Drewmutt and TheMesquito, I put a topic for discussion at the WP:Teahouse titled "had article moved to draftspace" since I want other people's opinion on this. Seahawk01 (talk) 03:42, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
@Drewmutt: and @TheMesquito:, I removed the lead on this article and moved it back into the main namespace. You both should reply at Wikipedia:Teahouse#had article moved to draftspace about this topic and I also request that @Dragonfly6-7: reply as well. Thanks.

Proposed deletion of New York City housing crisisEdit


The article New York City housing crisis has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No indication of notability. All sources primary. Further, improper cut/paste move. Would have draftified again, but it was copypasta'd into mainspace. Draft already exists.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

@John from Idegon: please see:

@John from Idegon: why don't you just remove everything I wrote and turn the article into a stub? Darwin Naz wrote an intro, so leave that. Surely, a housing crisis in the biggest city in America is notable, so I think having a stub is valid. Seahawk01 (talk) 03:26, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
