Talking About SuicideEdit


We should do our best to avoid using any variation of the phrase "commit suicide" and update all instances to "die by suicide" or "died by suicide." Even this is not a perfect term and there is no perfect term, but it is a good start and scientific literature supports the use of this term or "lost life to suicide" etc (source: Is there a way to mass-edit all pages on Wikipedia? If not, would anyone be interested in spending a few hours once in a while to help me achieve this?

@CorbiesVT272: I think what you're suggesting would be a site wide policy or amendment to WP:MOS. There has been some centralised discussion on the matter before that didn't appear to reach a consensus in either event. I think if there's anything that hasn't already been discussed centrally already, then it would be best to bring it up at Village Pump afresh. There are options for mass editing using bots but I severely doubt they'd be approved in this case. --Paul Carpenter (talk) 11:23, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

Ridgefield CemeteryEdit

Ridgefield Cemetery has been PROD'd, but the City of Ridgefield's website suggests the site has a nearly 150-year history. I'm struggling to find detailed coverage, but I've also learned of 3 alternative names for the cemetery. Any project members interested in helping with a bit of research here, or have access to archives to add some info? Feel free to hop over to the article's talk page. Thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 14:09, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

RfC on how to define "suicidal ideation" and compose the lead paragraphEdit

WP:DEATH is one of the WikiProjects listed as having interest in the article, Suicidal ideation. A request for comments (RfC) is currently underway at: RfC on how to define "suicidal ideation" and compose the lead paragraph. Your input would be very helpful. Thank you - Mark D Worthen PsyD (talk) [he/his/him] 16:04, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

Mausoleums for heads of stateEdit

Crossposting this to WikiProject Architecture as well, but I feel like there could be a better way to categorize the mausoleums for heads of states. Looking at the See also sections for Washington's Tomb (United States Capitol) and Lenin's Mausoleum, both contain fairly long lists of other, similar tombs or mausoleums, and I feel like creating a dedicated category and list article for this topic could be a better way to organize these related topics.
