    Australia Day Awards in local government article


    Is this really necessary? Sunshine_Coast_Region#Australia_Day_Awards LibStar (talk) 06:19, 11 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    No, removed. Stephen 06:30, 11 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    The deletion of the content was justified in the edit summary as being not notable. However, as per the notability policy, notability applies to article topics, not to article content. What content policy did it breach? Article content is generally required to be relevant, accurate, and cited. These appear to be awards of that region, they are cited etc. While I don't personally find these awards interesting, OTOH I don't see what policy they are violating that justifies deletion either. I think part of the problem is the visual bulkiness of the table. Perhaps the solution would be to shift these awards into a List article and leave something in the region article along the lines of "In YYYY, the Sunshine Regional Council introduced annual Australia Day awards to recognise the contributions of local citizens who have done blah, blah, blah" linking to the list article.

    Would people be interested in joining a wikiproject on improving and creating articles about oral tradition? Wikipedia's coverage on this appears to be very poor Kowal2701 (talk) 19:59, 24 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
