Radio of Free Asia

Thanks a bunch for sprucing up the page, I hope accessing the sources wasn’t too hard. Paragon Deku (talk) 03:59, 15 July 2021 (UTC)

  • @Paragon Deku: Thanks. It's an interesting topic although hard to access sources (even with database access). It did raise questions as to whether there should be another page for Korean Cultural and Freedom Foundation or merge this with a Radio of Free Asia page. Vladimir.copic (talk) 04:41, 15 July 2021 (UTC)
If you want another headache, I made the unfortunate discovery a few days ago that there are far more sources on this topic than I realized because the outlet was often incorrectly called “Radio Free Asia” by print sources, which is a similar yet distinct organization. Thankfully the original Radio Free Asia was defunct before Radio of Free Asia began, so sorting newspaper archives to the 60s and 70s and searching for “radio free Asia” should only bring up information about the organization itself named radio OF free Asia. Paragon Deku (talk) 05:58, 15 July 2021 (UTC)
@Paragon Deku: The Korean Cultural and Freedom Foundation has some interesting links to the Moonies which would probably be interesting too. Vladimir.copic (talk) 06:29, 15 July 2021 (UTC)

Democratic architecture

Don't do this. Yes it would make a point, and yes I personally agree with that point, but you and I both know that this article is spurious and shouldn't exist. If you would like to challenge the AfD closure you may do so by either talking to User:Sandstein or opening a formal WP:DRV if that is unsatisfactory. BSMRD (talk) 15:37, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

I can’t speak for them personally, but I doubt this was meant to go beyond the draft space to prove a point (in which case I don’t really find an issue). I do agree though that posting it to main space would be an awful idea. Paragon Deku (talk) 17:42, 23 July 2021 (UTC)
I started off looking into this as a joke but now actually think it’s a thing . Frank Lloyd Wright even wrote a book about it. There is so much published work discussing it. Happy to dump this if it’s seen as a bad idea. Vladimir.copic (talk) 18:47, 23 July 2021 (UTC)
I’d like to go over the sources and talk shop with you about it when I have the time (just to make sure we’re not going in the same direction of making a SYNTH mess), but if you think it’s a notable topic (rather than just analysis of architecture in democratic states), I’m all for you drafting it up. Paragon Deku (talk) 18:55, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

I actually think this little sojourn onto the edges of political WP has put me off for good. Think I’ll just retreat back to jazz and soul music articles. Vladimir.copic (talk) 19:13, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

List of longest living state leaders

I think you make a really good point. I am just wondering if you have thought it to its full extent. Taiwan is in my mind not the best example. I think Somaliland and a few other de facto states are much better examples. In these cases there is no functional outside government in the area, so no matter what outsiders may recognize, how exactly do we consistently exclude them from being state leaders? The question of who the state leader is in Australia is also a good one. I think it is high time that in Wikipedia wenot allow lists that no one can find an actual published version of. One article including a listing of the two oldest people alive now who were ever state leaders is not at all close to the 100 oldest ones. Until someone can point to a published list of the 100 oldest living state leaders, regardless of if they are still in office, this list will be a step too far. This is especially true since it is not clear we can even say for sure if all former state leaders are currently alive or dead. If this set of people were actually a notable encyclopedic group we would expect people to make sure to always know for sure if every former state leader was currently alive, but this is not the case in every possible place it could be the case.John Pack Lambert (talk) 14:16, 15 October 2021 (UTC)

Hi John. Yes unfortunately WP has become host to a whole heap of OR and unnessesary lists. I suppose they are fun for editors to put together and much easier than editing actual articles but so often they are not reflected in sources and contradict policy. Some editors are doing valiant efforts at bringing these to AfD but so often are outweighed by preservationists. For instance my recent AfD was rejected despite WP:NOTCATALOG advising against "non-encyclopedic cross-categorizations, such as 'people from ethnic / cultural / religious group X employed by organization Y'". So it goes. Such is life. Etc Vladimir.copic (talk) 03:16, 18 October 2021 (UTC)

Questions re: RfC at Reliable Sources noticeboard

Hi Vladimir,

I wanted to ask for advice, given that you have started an RfC at the Reliable Sources noticeboard for ASPI, and I wanted to know whether you think I should do the same for the Houston Chronicle. I started non-RFC post on the noticeboard because it hasn't been the subject of controversy; at the same time, the Houston Chronicle doesn't appear to have been the subject of any dedicated discussion to it in the noticeboard, nor does it appear in the perennial sources. It's crucially included in an article currently listed on the frontpage, Astroworld Festival crowd crush. Do you think I should request an RfC or not? Thank you in advance. Pilaz (talk) 19:44, 9 November 2021 (UTC)

I’m probably not the right person to give advice on this. I didn’t do my RfC in regards to any particular article so it seemed like the right thing. Maybe take it to the teahouse? Vladimir.copic (talk) 09:34, 10 November 2021 (UTC)

Your reverting on List of minority governors and lieutenant governors in the United States

Hello, On the page List of minority governors and lieutenant governors in the United States, you've repeatedly removed sourced information saying that it's unsourced and to use a reliable source. The section in question cites the Washington Post, which is listed as reliable on WP:RSN. It'd be appreciated if you'd stop removing the sourced information now. Thanks, Thanoscar21talk, contribs 00:27, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

@Thanoscar21: Have you read the source you are referencing here? It never once mentions Chris Sununu and is about his father John. This is really not enough for a racial classification of a BLP. We have to have higher standards about this. I tried to raise this on the talk page but no one seems to want to engage there - just edit war. Vladimir.copic (talk) 00:32, 23 November 2021 (UTC)
