Donation = Endorsement?[edit]

At Maine gubernatorial election, 2018, User:MAINEiac4434 contends that a donation from an individual to a candidate equals an endorsement and thus should be included under that section on the page. I contend that an affirmative statement by the candidate or endorser is necessary to include the article and that including donors as endorsers is a violation of BLP. What are your thoughts?

Discussion participation requested[edit]

Project members participation is requested here, I need neutral editors who are not coming from Pakistan to maintain NPOV as if we left this content to the mercy of editors only coming from Pakistan then this content will either be completely censored or coatracked.

Wiki Education hiring an experienced Wikipedian[edit]

Wiki Education is hiring an experienced Wikipedian for a part-time (20 hours/week) position. The focus of this position is to help new editors (students and other academics) learn to edit Wikipedia. The main focus of the position is monitoring and tracking contributions by Wiki Education program participants, answering questions, and providing feedback. We're looking for a friendly, helpful editor who like to focus on article content, but also with a deep knowledge of policies and guidelines and the ability to explain them in simple, concise ways to new editors. They will be the third member of a team of expert Wikipedians, joining Ian (Wiki Ed) and Shalor (Wiki Ed). This is a part-time, U.S. based, remote or San Francisco based position.

See our Careers page for more information. Ian (Wiki Ed) (talk) 20:05, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Category:Political leader sidebar templates[edit]

Some of these articles in the sidebar don't relate directly to the person's article, should some of the template there be deleted? Hddty. (talk) 03:53, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

Category:Advocates of the Fourteen Words[edit]

I have NO idea of the proper place to ask this, nor even a really coherent question. BUT:

Is Category:Advocates of the Fourteen Words appropriate? --Calton | Talk 00:49, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

I'd recommend WP:CFD. I avoid that area like the plague, but it seems fairly easy to construct an argument to delete it. power~enwiki (π, ν) 00:52, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
The problem is that WP:CFD is set up so you have to know going in what you want, be it deletion, merger, or renaming. I don't see a path for discussing a specific category in general terms -- and, again, all I have is a vague, hard-to-articulate feeling that this category is off, somehow, especially applied to BLPs. --Calton | Talk 01:01, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, we should delete it as it's either a BLP violation, or glorifying white nationalism. The people listed should probably all be categorized as "white nationalists" anyhow, it's hard to say this is a "defining" characteristic (and not being a defining characteristic is a reason for deletion at TFD, I believe). power~enwiki (π, ν) 01:14, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Note: I have listed this category for deletion at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2018 August 9. Also, someone more into this sort of thing than me might want to look into the edits of new SPA account Perspex03 (talk · contribs), creator of the category and whose 213-edit contribution history is centered on Fourteen Words. --Calton | Talk 22:25, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Came across this user via edits Volunteer Marek just undid at Mike Cernovich. Seems to be recently prolific in adding Fourteen Words-related content to many pages and delving into other extreme positions. Haven't dived deep into the content, but first reaction is that it's concerning at minimum. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 16:30, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
