Update to peer review pageEdit

Hi all, I've boldly updated your project's peer review page (Wikipedia:WikiProject Politics/Peer review) by updating the instructions and archiving old reviews.

The new instructions use Wikipedia's general peer review process (WP:PR) to list peer reviews. Your project's reviews are still able to be listed on your local page too.

The benefits of this change is that review requests will get seen by a wider audience and are likely to be attended to in a more timely way (many WikiProject peer reviews remain unanswered after years). The Wikipedia peer review process is also more maintained than most WikiProjects, and this may help save time for your active members.

I've done this boldly as it seems your peer review page is pretty inactive and I am working through around 90 such similar peer review pages. Please feel free to discuss below - please ping me ({{u|Tom (LT)}}) in your response.

Cheers and hope you are well, Tom (LT) (talk) 00:00, 11 November 2020 (UTC)

Discussion notice: Infobox officeholder successorEdit

There is an RfC about whether the |successor= parameter of {{Infobox officeholder}} should be added immediately after the article's subject loses re-election, or wait until the successor takes office. Interested parties may participate at: Template talk:Infobox officeholder#RfC: Interim use of successor=. ―Mandruss  14:07, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

FAR for Paul KagameEdit

I have nominated Paul Kagame for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. (t · c) buidhe 04:03, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

"Silence implies consent" / "Qui tacet consentire videtur"Edit

I'm looking at creating a page for the phrase or political notion that "silence implies consent." Currently the English phrase "silence implies consent" (and "silence means consent") redirect to the page on silence procedure, a bureaucratic method for formal settings, while the Latin phrase, "Qui tacet consentire videtur", redirects to a list of Latin phrases, which in turn links readers around to the silence procedure page. There seems not nearly enough about the phrase itself and its history, nor about its usage in colloquial settings, or in political history, especially for how often I hear the term or idea referenced, especially in a political sense. (These certainly aren't the most authoritative sources, but it seems likely there's more out there.) I'm no expert on this sort of thing, and I could certainly use help, but I'm also not sure if this is exactly the project to ask about it. — HTGS (talk) 01:17, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

Proposed Merge: Justice Party (United States) and Rocky AndersonEdit

Hello editors. It has been proposed that the article Justice Party (United States) be merged into the article Rocky Anderson. And one or both of those articles is within the scope of this WikiProject. If you would like express support for or object to the merge then you are strongly encouraged to do so at the talk page for Rocky Anderson. Thank you!
