Hard to findEdit

When I looked for an article on X and found none, instead of being sent to this page when I clicked on a link that indicated I could suggest its creation, I was sent to a page about creating a new article (as opposed to requesting one). Nowhere on that page could I find a link to this page. Why can't the link to suggesting a page direct a person to the page where a page can be suggested? I only was able to find this page because I looked at the talk page of the creation-guide page. That's hardly the best way to get to Rome. (talk) 01:28, 7 July 2021 (UTC)

Sadly, WP:RA is not very active. So in a way, maybe it is good that you ended up at WP:AFC instead of WP:RA. –Novem Linguae (talk) 02:21, 7 July 2021 (UTC)

Definition of WatchinaEdit

I'm having trouble finding a definition of watchina. I came across the term in The Resurrection of Bass Reeves.

Searching for definition of watchina is not returning any useful results. Searching for "Watchina"+negro watchina negro seems to have better results but the definition seems to be a moving target. Some of them are "immigrant negros" (to the Oklahoma territory) and others are "white man's negro" (implying a derrogatory term).

Given the poor search results it might be a good idea to provide a definition of the term. A long time ago one of the Wikipedia editors told me Wikipedia is allowed to provide definitions of words. (He told me that because I cited an external site for a definition).

Noloader, it's unlikely to meet the requirements for a Wikipedia article. You could look into creating an entry for it over at Wiktionary if you want. –Novem Linguae (talk) 04:27, 12 July 2021 (UTC)
