List of editors-in-chief for student newspapersEdit

Should there be separate lists of editors-in-chief for student newspapers as with Draft:List of Editor-in-Chiefs of The Daily Collegian? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 19:45, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

AngusWOOF, I don't think it should be in a separate article, but I could see it being useful information for within an article. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 09:02, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

A.G. Sulzberger updatesEdit


Hello! On behalf of The New York Times Company as part of my work at Beutler Ink (I've disclosed my COI appropriately), I've proposed some updates to the entry for A.G. Sulzberger, who serves as publisher of The New York Times. One editor helped me to update the Providence Journal and The Oregonian subsections, as well as part of the New York Times subsection, but has asked for others to review the most recent request to update the second half of the New York Times subsection. In my request, I've outlined specific updates and proposed markup changes in my user space for easier copying and pasting. Is a member of WikiProject Journalism willing to review the request and update the article on my behalf? Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 16:08, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

This request has been answered. Inkian Jason (talk) 15:53, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Move request – List of underground newspapersEdit

Your feedback would be appreciated at List of underground newspapers#Requested move 23 July 2020. Thanks, Mathglot (talk) 04:01, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

No article for editorial firewallEdit

This seems like a pretty important topic. Would anyone be interested in writing a page for it? {{u|Sdkb}}talk 06:42, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

Help updating New York Times Company articlesEdit

As mentioned above, I'm currently working to update a few entries related to The New York Times Company. I've submitted a request here to note role changes for Meredith Kopit Levien and Mark Thompson. I've posted similar requests on their respective talk pages (here and here). I'm not editing the pages directly because of my COI. Can a member of WikiProject Journalism review these requests and update the pages on my behalf? Inkian Jason (talk) 16:01, 30 July 2020 (UTC)

I've also posted a request here to improve the Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr. article, if a project member is willing to take a look. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 14:20, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

RSN RFC on South China Morning PostEdit

I started an RFC on the South China Morning Post on the RSN at Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard#South_China_Morning_Post_(and_Lin_Nguyen,_a_fabricated_writer). At the very minimum Wikipedia:Perennial sources should tell people not to use articles by "Lin Nguyen" as it's a fabricated persona. WhisperToMe (talk) 19:43, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

RE: Debate on creating a Chris Mullin disambiguation page (now it automatically leads to the basketball player)Edit

Right now, the Chris Mullin page automatically leads to the basketball player - at the same time, there is a Chris Mullin (politician) - the one who led the fight to release the Birmingham Six and vote A Very British Coup (which was adapted to a TV series).

I've started a discussion on the talk page there, requesting to rename the basketball player page to Chris Mullin (basketball), and make the Chris Mullin page a disambiguation page with equal representation to both of them.

Arguments raised against my proposal:

  • The basketball player has more views.

My main argument for the move:

  • The basketball player gets most of his views from the US, while outside the US he's hardly known, and in Britain itself the politician-author Chris Mullin is much better known.

I invite you guys to take part in the discussion.

Thank you! Maxim.il89 (talk) 19:44, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

Webinar on Friday Sept. 11Edit

All, this is rather last-minute, but if you're free, you may enjoy attending a webinar tomorrow launching Phase 2 of News On Wiki. We'll be talking with librarians Jessamyn West and Molly Schwartzburg, about how to build lists (of newspapers that need articles, and of source materials for writing articles). Hope you can join us! Free registration & all info here. -Pete Forsyth (talk) 23:04, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
