States of India
It's struck me as odd for a while that we have a cat for, say, Quebec (pop. 8+ million) or North Carolina (pop. 10+ million) and not one for Uttar Pradesh (pop. 200+ million). Given the frequency with which India-related topics appear at AfD, I wonder if it would make sense to include cats for the states of India, or at least some of the larger ones. Would welcome any thoughts. AleatoryPonderings (talk) 14:35, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
Article at AfD that needs input
Hello, there is an article at AfD that needs input: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Harvey Tolibao (2nd nomination). It's been open since July 24, due to a lack of participation/consensus. Anyone interested is welcome to join the discussion. // Timothy :: talk 17:28, 20 August 2020 (UTC)
Fork sports lists?
I'm not sure if this is a common enough occurrence, or just a temporary bump due to someone looking closely at these, but currently, 19 of the 36 list-related articles are sports-related (and most of those are for individual seasons). Would it be worth it to keep a separate delsort category for sports lists like we already have for lists of people? –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 00:25, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
'Rugby union' to just 'rugby'?
The AfD Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jason Hanrahan has proved difficult to categorise as there doesn't appear to be a way to sort rugby league deletions yet. Please could either a 'rugby league' deletion sorting be created or 'rugby union' be changed to simply 'rugby' to incorporate both? Spiderone 19:05, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
- I think it would be best to create a Rugby League category as they are different games. noq (talk) 20:32, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
- Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/2021 NRL season just added to Rugby union which is clearly inappropriate. I am seeing most AFDs that get categorised as union should be Rugby league. There is an appropriate Wikipedia:WikiProject Rugby league that would it would be better to notify rather that the union one.noq (talk) 14:22, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
