Kamala Harris

The page is undergoing an extraordinary number of edits in advocacy of Sen. Harris receiving the Democratic nomination for Vice President of the United States. These edits have received some media coverage. Semi-protection did not seem to help the situation much, and my request for Full protection was (legitimately, IMHO) denied. If you are so inclined, please drop it on your watchlist and keep eyes on it. Rklahn (talk) 19:20, 5 July 2020 (UTC)

Michael Kilby

Hi. Just over from WP:CRIC. I've just created a stub on Michael Kilby, an MEP in the 1980s who also played a bit of minor counties cricket. Leaving him here for someone politically minded to expand! Cheers. StickyWicket (talk)—Preceding undated comment added 14:31, 28 July 2019‎ (UTC)

Center for Countering Digital Hate

The current version of the Center for Countering Digital Hate article seems to contain quite a lot of loaded language: I think some review by non-involved editors would be useful to ensure that it meets the WP:NPOV criteria. -- The Anome (talk) 06:21, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

RfC on Turning Point USA

An RfC which may be of interest to the members of this project can be found here. Beyond My Ken (talk) 17:12, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

The RfC clearly states: An editor is attempting to remove the following material from this article: and if that is not neutral, then the RfC is not neutral. I am going to state that at the article talk page because it indicates to me that the RfC is malformed. Atsme Talk 📧 17:39, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
Beyond My Ken, Atsme, please don't edit war over the wording. Discuss and maybe you'd be able to arrive at a compromise solution. El_C 17:40, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Wikidata model for legislative terms

Hello all. Here is the start of a legislative term modelled in Wikidata: Q96361127 (2019–2020 Massachusetts legislature in US). Thoughts? Thanks. Posted also at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Massachusetts. -- M2545 (talk) 10:07, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

Colombian politics improvement

I assume this is fairly low on the to do list, but if anyone knows anything about Colombian politics it would be great if they could take a look at the articles- I tried to use them to understand the politics better and they’re all pretty low quality.

Does Michelle Tidball (Kanye VP) deserve an article?

As I'm sure many are aware, Kanye West has recently announced his intention to run for President in 2020. This has been one of the main stories (it's on the front page of BBC US and Canada and had lots of articles) and has received a lot more coverage than a third party campaign usually would. This raises the question. Is Michelle Tidball (Kanye's proposed VP) notable? She has had a fair bit of coverage just in the last 12 hours including this from forbes: , but has only received coverage for being announced as Kanye's VP. It's probably WP:TOOSOON at this exact moment, but would people be against it if she had an article? AlessandroTiandelli333 (talk) 22:39, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

It seems like she will inevitably have one if this candidacy does not turn out to be a stunt. BD2412 T 22:53, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

FAR for Edward VIII

I have nominated Edward VIII for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. (t · c) buidhe 05:32, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Draft:Racial views of Joe Biden

And see the talk page. It just needs watching. I'm walking away from it and swearing off politics. ;) Mobi Ditch (talk) 10:33, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

Scope of this project and of Politics of COUNTRY articles

Hey! I'm a relateivly new contributor to any given WikiProject, so I'm not particularly comfortable or know what I'm doing, but I was just wondering a few scopes. Does this WikiProject include governments/government agencies, or purely politics (Democrats vs Republicans etc)? Also, with articles along the line of Politics of COUNTRY (Politics of Australia etc), exactly what do they cover? - at least in Australia, politics is considered just Labor vs Liberal vs Greens etc (electoral campaigns pretty much), whereas the article explains the governance of Australia with a brief little section about Political Parties (which List of political parties in Australia then goes into ore detail about... even though it's a list article). Any help would be really appreciated! ItsPugle (talk) 12:29, 12 July 2020 (UTC)
