Workshopping a proposal for a new user groupEdit
Valereee and I have been working on a proposal to form a new usergroup whose members would be able to edit content on the main page or its fully protected subsidiaries. Since it directly affects this project, and is based in part on the shortage of administrators working here, we would like to invite feedback on the proposal at User talk:Vanamonde93/Main page editor. The proposal itself is at User:Vanamonde93/Main page editor. In particular, we would like to hear it if you are opposed to the whole thing on principle, because in that case we would rather spend our time promoting queues than in organizing a large-scale RfC.

Moved from ITNCEdit
In the recent deaths, you keep putting in the deaths of obscure "footballers"--rugby players from England. As an American, I don't know these people, I don't care about them, and I don't see why you keep listing them! It seems to me that these "footballers" would be known to relatively few people, and that there's little point in listing them in recent deaths. (As I recall, you omitted Tim Conway's death--a person well-known in the U.S.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 20:43, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
- This is not the American Wikipedia, this is the English language Wikipedia, editable by anyone in the world. Evidently a person or persons is working to improve the articles about English footballers(the main reason for ITN to exist, the improvement of articles). As any article about a person automatically meets the criteria for posting to Recent Deaths, they will be posted as long as the update and article are adequate. If you don't like what is posted, you are welcome to improve articles of your choosing about people in various fields that interest you and nominate them for Recent Deaths. 331dot (talk) 20:49, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
