Signups open for The Core Contest Edit

The Core Contest—Wikipedia's most exciting contest—will take place this year from April 15 to May 31. The goal: to improve vital or other core articles, with a focus on those in the worst state of disrepair. Editing can be done individually, but in the past groups have also successfully competed. There is £300 of prize money divided among editors who provide the "best additive encyclopedic value". Signups are open now. Cheers from the judges, Femke, Casliber, Aza24.

If you wish to start or stop receiving news about The Core Contest, please add or remove yourself from the delivery list.

Dealing with wide-scale misuse of influences/influenced fields in philosopher template below Edit

Hi everyone,

I am posting to inquire whether there is anything we can do to help correct the wide-spread abuse of these fields in the Philosopher Infobox template. Well-meaning editors add just more and more figures not supported by the article, which undermines the express purpose of the template: "to summarize (and not supplant) key facts that appear in the article."

Discussions like this, for instance, are just a waste of everyone's time. People who want to add figures should add them to the article in an appropriate place with supporting citations; or, if they aren't comfortable editing, they can instead make a request or open a discussion on the Talk page with the same information.

Please find below a transcluded discussion from the template Talk page. All opinions and ideas most welcome! — Preceding unsigned comment added by PatrickJWelsh (talkcontribs) 22:37, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please see the discussion at Template talk:Infobox philosopher § Influences/influenced. (I replaced the transclusion template with this link since the discussion is starting to get lengthy and there was no link here for contributing to it—better to just click the link to read and contribute.)

Harm reduction article discussion about content inclusion Edit

There is a discussion at Talk:Harm_reduction#I_have_removed_links_to_specific_service_providers,_agencies,_clinics regarding the inclusion of a harm reduction services provider by name in the article. Graywalls (talk) 00:56, 27 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I looked at this and did offer an opinion. But I only even clicked through on the assumption that it would be somehow related to philosophy, which it was not.
In the future, would you mind reserving this board for issues related to this WikiProject?
Thanks, Patrick J. Welsh (talk) 15:17, 27 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Speaking of which, I announced it here, because I noticed the article was listed as of interest to WP:Philosophy. If editors in this project do not find it is appropriate, maybe it ought to be taken out? Graywalls (talk) 20:01, 27 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for the explanation. I will leave your question to any other editors who know more about this side of Wikipedia.
