Does this article meet the guidelines?Edit

I am a new, but I would like to point out an article, “Warlord Era”, that seems to use very strange language and may be somewhat untrustworthy. The section “Warlord profiles” in particular is the the most obvious. The article: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warlord_Era SwagsOnB (talk) 00:57, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

Errors in interpretationEdit

There appear to be a number of errors in the interpretation of the UNU-Merit study published in March 2010. For example, the study is a summary of the results of a questionnaire available to everyone who uses wikipedia; both contributors and readers. The results of the study as reported in this wiki article state they are for contributors only. I will be making adjustments to this article to accurately reflect the context and results of the referenced studies. Fr33labour (talk) 16:18, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

Nothing majorEdit

There is an instance of UNN-Merit instead of UNU-Merit Xokai (talk) 23:30, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Broken reference citationEdit

Reference number 1 on this page contains a Check |url= value error message. I'd like to fix it, but I don't see the corresponding markup in the edit view. The reference is from a sidebar or box aside. It looks like the box is inserted with {{Wikipedia editor graph}} but I don't know what this points to or how to go about fixing it.

The pages address the same topic with roughly the same level of detail, so we ought to WP:CONSOLIDATE them. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 20:38, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Support as nom. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 20:38, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose the two pages have different aims and styles. "Who writes Wikipedia?" is largely unreferenced, but appears to me to be more accurate and up to date. If they merged, I expect the content at "Wikipedians", with much referenced content using very old sources, would be dominant. Probably a net loss. Johnbod (talk) 21:35, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
    We tried this 5 or so years ago to no avail. I will look back on where I got the data for what I added to Who writes Wikipedia? add the sources and update them if possible. That said this page here is very outdated and needs help before anyone would merge the data.--Moxy 🍁 21:52, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
    The #1 thing we need to do to get these pages up to date is consolidate them, so that our energies aren't split maintaining a bunch of duplicate pages. An update can be done while merging them, but that won't happen unless we agree on the principle that they ought to be merged in the first place. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 10:20, 24 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support Who writes Wikipedia? Wikipedians. 🐔 Chicdat ChickenDatabase 12:36, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose, these are two different articles and approaches to the subject, per Johnbod. Randy Kryn (talk) 12:54, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Support Merge under the title WP:Who writes Wikipedia?. This title is much simpler for newer Wikipedians (of course with all data gathered and organized). --CaeserKaiser (talk) 21:29, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Support This will make it easier for new wikipedia editors to learn more about Wikipedia. It makes sense to merge. BGzest (talk) 09:04, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Support They cover the same topic, no need to have separate pages for this. Merging and updating things makes perfect sense. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 18:26, 22 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose pages serve different purposes and removing the other one defeats that Naleksuh (talk) 02:07, 11 November 2020 (UTC)
  • Support per nom.EPIC STYLE (LET'S TALK) 03:00, 23 December 2020 (UTC)
  • Support I think two articles are describing same things in base. -- Wendylove (talk) 02:39, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
