State of articles regarding the Democratic Alliance
Hello, all. Hope you are all doing well. The DA or Democratic Alliance and its leader, Mmusi Maimane, have been in the news lately (a bit of an understatement, I know), but none of the involved articles has been updated to reflect on the recent, developing news stories. I would gladly update the articles, but I don't where to begin. Should new articles, such as Next Democratic Alliance Federal Congress, Infighting in the Democratic Alliance (South Africa) and Federal Executive Committee of the Democratic Alliance (South Africa), be created? Guidance would be appreciated. Have a good evening. LefcentrerightTalk (plz ping) 20:11, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
- Hi Lefcentreright, sorry for my slow reply here. If you feel there are enough independent variable sources discussing these issues and that illustrate the importance of them then I would say 'go for it'. However I must note that even more momentous similar events have happened to the ANC over the years and they are not covered at all. My instinct is to encourage us all to expand on these sorts of articles rather than to prioritize. Editors can only be expected to write on what personally interests them as it is unreasonable to expect volunteer editors to do otherwise. Having said that, I would be most supportive of an article about the Federal Executive Committee of the Democratic Alliance (South Africa), but I am less convinced about the other two as possible articles. But then again what matters here more is the notability of these entities and events than anything else. Generally I am of the position that we should be bold when considering these things so I will instead encourage you decide on this yourself. :-) --Discott (talk) 13:54, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
