Does the current text of WP:BIDIRECTIONAL have broad consensus[edit]

Pls see Wikipedia talk:Categories, lists, and navigation templates#WP:BIDIRECTIONAL navbox requirements. -- Moxy (talk) 19:02, 19 November 2015‎ (UTC)

List of Artemis missions‎[edit]

There is an issue with a new page: List of Artemis missions‎. The creator(s) copy/pasted walls of text from the Artemis program and added a couple of tables, and they call this a "list". The duplication with the parent article is expansive, and are rejecting the guidelines per WP:Stand-alone lists. Your input is appreciated. Cheers, Rowan Forest (talk) 18:12, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

"List of..."[edit]

Hi all. I read somewhere a few months back that there was a push (I think from the Wikimedia foundation, but could be wrong about that), to simplify list titles by getting rid of the "List of". Anyone here at this project know anything about it? The reason I ask is I do a little bit of work over at NPP, and every once in a while we'll get a new article like, Villages in Budaun, Uttar Pradesh. Now, a year ago, I would have simply moved it to List of Villages in Budaun, Uttar Pradesh, but if there's a movement on to go with the shorter versions, I won't. Conversely, if there is a consensus to move to the shorter version, whenever I come upon a new article with "List of" in the title I can simply move it. I'll also let the other folks over at NPP know. Thanks in advance.Onel5969 TT me 17:38, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

Nope, we’re not discontinuing that title convention. postdlf (talk) 00:50, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

List length within article, when to make stand-alone[edit]

How long is too long for a list in an article? Here specifically looking at the large list at the bottom of Shortages in Venezuela, which I think is definitely large enough to move to a stand-alone...tks ♦ Lingzhi2 (talk) 12:40, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

I've seen lists that are much longer, and which occupy a much greater proportion of the article. Splitting off the Venezuela ones won't make much difference. See also WP:SPLIT. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 13:06, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
I'm sure there are bigger lists, but in what quality level articles? Any at or above GA? ♦ Lingzhi2 (talk) 13:21, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
That list strikes as something that could be summarized as commodities in the general and entirely removed accordingly. It strays into unnecessary detail to get the gist that Venezuela has issues right now with providing basic goods and services. --Izno (talk) 13:41, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
My thoughts exact-a-ly.. ♦ Lingzhi2 (talk) 14:14, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

List of discoveries, disagreement as to whether it is possible to include a Bibliography[edit]

Hello to any viewing editor,

please go to Talk:List_of_Discoveries#Scope_of_the_article, for the relevant disagreement. The contending editor Dialectric has stated that there is a reason for not including a bibliography:

I support the removal of the bibliography, and the restoration of the title to List of Discoveries, which was changed without prior discussion by Armoracia-1 on September 5, 2019‎. As a list article, a bibliography is redundant, as all items should have adequate sourcing included in the item. I have not seen any other list articles which include a bibliography. Wikipedia:Dispute resolution and WP:RFC provide a number of tools to address issues at this page if we cannot agree.Dialectric (talk) 14:36, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

My contrary argument is,

how many list articles are there and of that number (the total number) does any have a the necessary determinant for the reason you have provided

I think the bibliography is necessary on the basis of Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Lists → WP:SOURCELIST:

Adding individual items to a list Lists, whether they are stand-alone lists (also called list articles) or embedded lists, are encyclopedic content just as paragraph-only articles or sections are. Therefore, all individual items on the list must follow Wikipedia's content policies: the core content policies of Verifiability (through good sources in the item's one or more references)

External links update[edit]

After discussions spread over the last couple of years, we have finally updated Wikipedia:External links#Links in lists with some new advice about how to format external links in some stand-alone lists. This format is not mandatory, but it may be helpful in some cases. Please feel free to try it out in pages that you think are appropriate, and leave feedback on the guideline's talk page. Thanks, WhatamIdoing (talk) 23:13, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Request for information on WP1.0 web tool[edit]

Hello and greetings from the maintainers of the WP 1.0 Bot! As you may or may not know, we are currently involved in an overhaul of the bot, in order to make it more modern and maintainable. As part of this process, we will be rewriting the web tool that is part of the project. You might have noticed this tool if you click through the links on the project assessment summary tables.

We'd like to collect information on how the current tool is used! How do you yourself and the other maintainers of your project use the web tool? Which of its features do you need? How frequently do you use these features? And what features is the tool missing that would be useful to you? We have collected all of these questions at this Google form where you can leave your response. Walkerma (talk) 04:24, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

Renaming discussion for "List of male performers in gay porn films" article[edit]

I have suggested that the article List of male performers in gay porn films be changed to List of male performers in gay pornographic films. Porn is slang and Wikipedia generally uses the term "pornography" for categories and articles, as it does with the main gay pornography article. Adding notice here to alert editors.
