National Association of Scholars - Your thoughts requested on Talk pageEdit

I created a section on Talk:National Association of Scholars titled, NPOV January 2020. Would you share your thoughts on the article there? (Or edit the article to improve it.) ¶ I read a Commentary in the Wall Street Journal Opinion section today that included this sentence: "Wikipedia describes us as a 'conservative' organization." That mention prompted me to look at the article. I did not know about the National Association of Scholars before today. I reviewed other Wikipedia articles about nonprofit (or trade union) educational organizations and none of them used an adjective denoting a political ideology in the article's short description or in the lede (introductory paragraph). Calling the National Association of Scholars a "conservative" organization struck me as neither consistent nor neutral. What do you think? Thanks!   - Mark D Worthen PsyD (talk) (I am a man.

A second wave mass AfD nominations on Arizona townsEdit

Chairing Cross, Arizona, Arizona First multiple town nomination for deletion. Was a Speedy Keep, nomination withdrawn. I don't know why they didn't include them all. What they have done is repackaged their effort: 'Old wine in new bottles.' No longer being sold by the case.
Reminds me of Massive Attack, one of my favorite bands. But I digress.

− − A couple of these are not presently AFDs, but they all need to be improved.

Coal Mine Mesa, Arizona (Second nomination)Edit

Coconino, Arizona (Second nomination)Edit

Corva, Arizona (Second nomination)Edit

Cosnino, Arizona (Second nomination)Edit

Coyote Basin Ranch, Arizona (Second nomination)Edit

Cucamonga Junction, Arizona (Second nomination)Edit

Darling, Arizona (Second nomination)Edit

Daze, Arizona (Second nomination)Edit

Durfee Crossing, Arizona (Second nomination)Edit

Echinique Place, Arizona (Second nomination)Edit

− − A couple of those articles are not up for a second nomination. They appear in red.

− I know that Darling, Arizona has lots more sources. I have not done homework on the rest of the articles. All the AFD discussions started with a startling omission, and only peripherally mentioned (buried) the prior AFDs. 7&6=thirteen () 16:21, 14 January 2020 (UTC)

This is not canvassing. Indeed, I have no idea who will read it or how they will react (if at all). Simple notice. Simple recitation of the facts. What are you hiding? And why? 7&6=thirteen () 22:17, 14 January 2020 (UTC)
It might help if each of those articles were tagged with a Stub template. Category:Geography stubs Wikipedia allows stubs. Also, this is not canvassing by any stretch of the imagination. Projects generally list AFD, CFD and other problem issues for articles related to their subject. I.e. WikiProject Women in Red. Articles get rescued all the time. — Maile (talk) 01:07, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

Request to re-class articleEdit

I'm currently nominating Bonanza City, New Mexico for good article; the article is currently classed as a stub, which is technically speaking grounds for an insta-failure. I know it's unlikely the article will actually be insta-failed, but I don't want to take the chance of having to wait for months only to need to relist it again. Could someone please bump this up to start-class to eliminate this possibility? Spirit of Eagle (talk) 02:47, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

 Done — Maile (talk) 02:49, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

Lee FixelEdit

Hello! I've submitted a request to update the Early life and education section of the Lee Fixel article as part of my work with Beutler Ink. Lee Fixel is an American venture capitalist and investor and I'm hoping to update some straightforward biographical information. You can view my full request here, which seeks to improve flow and fix a few inaccurate details. Will someone please review this request? Given my COI, I'm asking independent editors to confirm accuracy, neutrality, and verifiability. I'll happily address any questions or concerns that may arise. Thanks!

Idea for new community workspaceEdit

Hi. I would like to create some kind of collaborative workspace where coordinators or members of various WikiProjects would gather and provide updates and information on what is going on at each wikiproject, i.e. regarding their latest efforts, projects, and where interested editors can get involved.

For those of you at this very active WikiProject, your input would be very helpful, so I wanted to get your input on whether you'd be interested in helping me to make this happen.

we are discussing this proposal right now at:

* Wikipedia:Village pump (proposals)#Idea for new community workspace

Please feel free to let me know what you think of this idea, and please let me know your preference, regarding the options above. if you do not see any need for this idea, that is totally fine. However, I think that the majority of editors lack awareness of where the truly active editing is taking place and at which WikiProjects, and I would like to do whatever I can to help make people more aware of where the activity is, what they can do to help, and also which areas of Wikipedia offer ideas and efforts that might help them in their own editing activities. Please feel free to let me know.

thanks. --Sm8900 (talk) 18:50, 9 February 2020 (UTC)
