Proposal - Roads & Kingdoms
|The following Wikipedia contributors may be personally or professionally connected to the subject of the article. Relevant policies and guidelines may include conflict of interest, autobiography, and neutral point of view.|
I recently posted an article request for Roads & Kingdoms, a New York-based online publication covering food, travel, and politics, founded in 2012. I’m currently an intern with Roads & Kingdoms, and I’ve carefully studied Wikipedia’s policies on disclosing conflicts of interest. I will not make any direct contributions on articles related to the publication, and I am not paid for my contributions.
I wanted to make a post here in WikiProject Magazines, as I believe Roads & Kingdoms meets the notability criteria outlined here for magazines: It received the James Beard Foundation’s Publication of the Year Award in 2017, and Anthony Bourdain was the publication’s sole investor and editor-at-large. The company also produces online content for CNN’s Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown television series.
The publication has received substantial coverage by The Wall Street Journal, American Journalism Review, Inc., and Vox Media’s Eater. (; ; ; ) Any feedback on whether Roads & Kingdoms meets notability requirements is welcome, and I would be happy to work with editors on a draft of the article. Please see my talk page if you have any questions or concerns. WillA98 (talk) 15:01, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
- It does not appear to meet any of the guidelines for notability at WP:NPERIODICAL. I would say it should be moved under the Publisher's page, but that doesn't have an entry nor does the editor. Jaldous1 (talk) 15:11, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
User:Mike Christie is not allowing an infobox because it is "misleading to list only current values when the most important information relates to 1930s to 1970s". Is this correct? Should most of the history go on its own page to focus on the current publication? It has changed ownership a few times but has never had a pause in publication longer then six months since 1930.

- I don't own the article, but I did remove the infobox. I'd rather not split the article - it's not too long as it stands, and it passed WP:FAC in its current form. Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 08:31, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
Was wondering if anyone from this WikiProject might be able to take a look at and assess Nargis magazine. Newly created by a new editor who added it directly to the mainspace; so, there was no AfC review to vet any issues. This could be a case of COI or undisclosed paid editing as well. If kept, the article might be better off WP:MOVEd to Nargis (magazine) and the titled italicized since that appears to be the convention for articles about magazines. -- Marchjuly (talk) 04:41, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
