Proposed DeletionEdit

WikiCup 2022 September newsletterEdit

Revert on Libyan Popular National MovementEdit

Dear Soman, you deleted my edit on the page about the Libyan Popular National Movement, claming it would not be in line with WP:RS and WP:OR. I'd like to protest that and ask you to revert your edit.

I argue that it is in line with RS, because all criterias of the section "Self-published and questionable sources as sources on themselves" are met. 1. It's not an exceptional claim, as it describes (controversial) statements made by the party that were published on their official facebook page, which is their main platform of public relations. 2. It does not involve claims about third parties; While the statements do, this is clearly set into context that they're (again, controversial) statements by the party. If it helps, I can add reliable sources that native names for children were banned under Gaddafi and that he called Amazigh languages "dialects" if that helps, but that's really not the point of the section; the point is that these are statements from the party. 3. It does not involve claims about events not directly related to the subject, as the subject are really just the statements. 4. There is no doubt to its authenticity, as it's the party's official facebook page; facebook is the main media for political expression in Libya, almost all parties don't even have own websites and even journalism mostly takes places there, much more so than in most European countries or the USA. And 5., the article is not primarily based on these sources.

As for OR, this doesn't apply either. It's neither analysis nor a synthesis of published materials and not original thought either. It only takes official statements by the party and marks them as such, to help clarifying their political stance.

I hope this convinces you to revert your edit. I invested quite some time in the research and would have used journalistic sources, if Libya had the journalistic infrastructure that such statements would be reported in the press. As you might know though, the country is stuck in a civil war, so the sources on political activities are rather thinly spread. Ermanarich (talk) 22:44, 10 September 2022 (UTC)

Heyo, @Soman: Just pinging you in case you missed this. Apart from that, it's never wrong to thank a fellow Wikipedian for all their voluntary work they've done in general for this great platform for accumulation of human knowledge of course; I guess we don't do that often enough here and I want to make clear that I highly respect anyone editing Wikipedia in good faith.--Ermanarich (talk) 14:53, 12 September 2022 (UTC)

DYK for Communist Party of Lithuania and BelorussiaEdit

 On 18 September 2022, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Communist Party of Lithuania and Belorussia, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the Communist Party of Lithuania and Belorussia organized partisan units behind the front lines during the Polish–Soviet War? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Communist Party of Lithuania and Belorussia. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Communist Party of Lithuania and Belorussia), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
