Some proposals[edit]

I'm going to propose the swaps that GuzzyG suggested in an earlier post. I think all of these swaps are worth considering. Interstellarity (talk) 17:25, 8 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Interstellarity: I think number of biograpbies is already far too high on this list. Personally I would support removall of all biographies which Thi and GuzzyG have suggested except Hans Christian Andersen. The only biography which I would support very fastly add (for now, and among proposal which they gave) is Louis Pasteur due to obvious reason. I would keep H C Abdersen. In my view Fairy Tale should have one representative based disussion where someone nominated Fairy Tale for removal on English Wikipedia. H C Andersen is by far more vital than Grimm Brothers as he is the most translated author from 19th century (yes, he is THE one), the most popular European writer in China (yes, probably more than Shakespeare. While readers rather not search about Fairy Tales on the Wikipedia then there so many reliable sources for that fact on the Internet. There are even sources H C Andersen is the most popular forgein writer there) and represent Scandinavia area better than Grimm Brothers Germany.

@Dawid2009: I have changed a few proposals so that most of the biographies are removed. Let me know what you think of them. I would like to ask you your thoughts on removing some of the countries on the list. Do you think any need to bhe removed? If so, which ones? Interstellarity (talk) 12:59, 10 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Interstellarity:. I agree number of countries is bit too high on this list too. Among 1000 divewrse space this is not very neccesary to list so many countries. 40-45 seems be about right. Firs three countries which I would remove would be Vatican City, Singapore and New Zealand but this is just me. I would prefer this topic be discussed among more people to not do it subjectively. I also keep votes in changes nominations by You. I am ambivalent about adult/adolescence so I did not put vote them. Later or earlier personally I would remove all those biographies but I did not put vote at Tschaikovsky as there are also still other biographies which I would remove before Tschaikovsky but it jst me.

Industry vs manufacturing[edit]

Privet, @Delasse:. I don't necessarily disagree with this change, but I do believe it should have been discussed beforehand to seek consensus.--Leptictidium (talk) 09:02, 18 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Leptictidium ok, let us discuss this. One more argument: in English wikipedia en:Industry is now a disambiguation page. Delasse (talk) 14:11, 21 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
According to "Britannica", Manufacturing is a part of Industry, which is defined as "group of productive enterprises or organizations that produce or supply goods, services, or sources of income. In economics, industries are generally classified as primary, secondary, tertiary, and quaternary; secondary industries are further classified as heavy and light". Manufacturing, or secondary industry, is only one of the four parts which industry is divided in. By taking Manufacturing as an item on the list of 1000, sectors today more important than secondary are left out of the list, such as tertiary and, above all, quaternary, related to the economy and technology respectively. In my opinion, Industry should be the item on the list because it covers a greater range than Manufacturing. If in English wikipedia, Industry is a redirect page, that problem should be solved, but not by changing the whole for a part. --Xosé Antonio (talk) 11:35, 8 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Xosé Antonio I think you confuse industry (Q268592) and industry (Q8148). What you wrote is valid for industry (Q268592) but not for industry (Q8148).

Sport. Suggestion[edit]

We now have a list like this:

  • Athletics
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Cricket
  • Association football
  • Golf
  • Rugby
  • Tennis

But if we look at the article en:Sport#Popularity, we will see there:

Rank Sport Estimated Global Following Primary Sphere of Influence
1 Association football (Soccer) 4 billion Globally
2 Cricket 2.5 billion UK and Commonwealth
3 Hockey (Ice and Field) 2 billion Europe, North America, Africa, Asia and Australia
4 Tennis 1 billion Globally
5 Volleyball 900 million Western Europe and North America
6 Table tennis 875 million Globally
7 Basketball 825 million Globally
8 Baseball 500 million United States, Caribbean and Japan
9 Rugby Union 475 million UK and Commonwealth
10 Golf 450 million Western Europe, East Asia and North America

Swap: Remove Washington, D.C., add Chicago[edit]

I don't believe that "mere seats of government" like DC, Brasilia, the Hague, or (most illustrative of my point) Bonn during the West German years, belong on this list. Also, we don't need two cities on the American East Coast. Although I might very well be biased, Chicago has a larger population and economy than Washington, D.C., and increases geographic diversity of the list by covering the American interior. It is also the capital of American architecture and urban planning, being the canonical birthplace of the skyscraper and the centerpiece of Burnham's planning and the City Beautiful movement, which I think would duly replace L'enfant's plan.

Articles which are on English Wikipedia Vital articles list but not on Meta's 1000 list[edit]

@John M Wolfson and DaGizza: What do you think to generate all articles which are on English Wikipedia list of 1000 articles but not here, on meta? This list on meta is terrible, I always was aware of that. Is more western biased than English, what do you think to list those articles elsewhere and analyse which ones could be added/replaced based on argumen that English Wikipedia include that? Dawid2009 (talk) 13:52, 13 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Although similar, the lists have different purposes. The vital articles is a list of English language articles. This is a list of topics that can be written about in all languages. If you think this list is terrible, please add suggestions to improve it. But a copy of the Vital articles would be terrible for languages who don't have a direct translation of the English language concepts. Boivie (talk) 15:47, 2 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Summary response to @Toku:'s comments below: Yes, it is indeed intention to swap out a number of countries/cities/biography articles from the list, as I agree with others observation that the list currently have too much of them.

What I am thinking about is, if a user enter a new, small wikipedia of their home language, spoken only in the villages around themselves, and see it only get a thousand or so articles, what sort of articles can make the reader think, "Ah, this is meaningful and that it is a useful website.", ? And that's the idea behind the proposal. There are also some ideology aspects like the proposal for including article on freedom, or free content, which might not be the most important 1000 entries, but those are articles that can help explain to readers that what Wikipedia exactly is, just like the "Encyclopedia" article currently on the list now. (Wikipedia should avoid self reference, but when picking articles on what to write first before other articles, I think it can be up to individual preference [There are no way to write Wikipedia articles without individual preference on what topic to cover anyway].) And since most new/small Wikipedia tends to be from different underdeveloped countries, or really small communities in more developed countries, I think it is important that the articles being listed are general enough, and wouldn't make reader question "Why is this article being selected to write on instead of all the other possible things?". C933103 (talk) 14:02, 14 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I worked on the list a few years ago, especially on the countries (Africa, Nigeria, Tanzania, RDC). I think a significant number of countries is a good thing. Indeed, they make it possible to quickly map the planet and make it possible to introduce elements of geography, history and culture (geography/history/culture map) or even politics, economics and science. I will therefore oppose a reduction in the number of countries. On the other hand, there are many cities (44 I think). Many are there because they are large centers but their history is recent and, apart from their demographic weight, they have, in my opinion, little interest in a basic list. I am therefore in favor of studying a reduction in the number of cities. --Algovia (talk) 08:20, 15 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

swap Zhu Xi for Legalism (Chinese philosophy)[edit]

Zhu Xi is not insignificant, as he is the person who defined the study of Confucianism in Song dynasty of China and his influence subsequently extended to Ming dynasty.

Finally, in the 20th century, it was once again a regional power (partly subject to the USSR but also sufficiently autonomous to avoid direct repression by the Soviet army in the 1980s). Its importance could be compared to that of Korea or Thailand in Asia. It is not the main power of the continent because it is surrounded by more powerful neighbors.

On the other hand, more detailed describing the concept of Property can help reader better understand the classifying criteria of Marxism and Communism, in addition to lying the groundwork for describing the concept of Intellectual property being a type of property, and only then would allow the explanation of the concept of "Free" in Wikipedia in relation to such intellectual property right.

swap Golf for South China Sea Poker[edit]

Alternative proposal raised

Among the sports in the current list, Golf is one of the item with fewer participants, as can be seen by its exclusion from the Olympics nowadays.

    (Just to follow up my previous comment, mostly for clarification purposes.) I wouldn't want both Communication and Telecommunications to be included, because of the high degree of overlap in what would be written in the two articles.

Moving Communication to a different category would somewhat lessen the problem, but won't fundamentally solve it, I think. whym (talk) 08:32, 9 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    The current "Communication" article on enwp focus on social and interpersonal ways of communication, while "Telecommunications" is almost strictly technical.

C933103 (talk) 11:57, 9 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    That's a fair point. I concede that technical aspects are more central to one article and human-centered aspects in the other, at least in English Wikipedia currently. However, I still see closeness and continuity between the two concepts and that still bothers me. Other languages, especially smaller Wikipedia editions, may not (want to) mirror the distinction made in the English versions exactly, and may want to have one larger article. whym (talk) 23:41, 16 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Actual examples shows otherwise.... For example, based on my limited understanding on the language, Min Nan Wikipedia article on Communication say something along the line of "Communication is an act of one subject or group covey meaning to another subject or group through notions that both sides can understand", while The Wikipedia's article on Telecommunication say something along the line of "Telecommunication is a technology to send information through elecromagnetic system". The two articles have minimal overlaps.... In fact even their article names are unrelated, unlike how English Wikipedia which use English language use same root word for both. The Wikidata entry for both also indicated clearly the different in nature of the two subject. C933103 (talk) 02:42, 17 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oppose Oppose "the Olympic Games are no longer so important" : then why China (in 2008 and 2022) or Russia (in 2014) or UK (in 2012) or France (for 2024) or many others spent or spend billions of dollars to organize it ? Maybe because Olympic Games remain the most important sport event ? --Nicolas Eynaud (talk) 03:53, 11 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  4. Oppose Oppose As long as "house" is already included in the list, I don't think it is necessary to include "home" in the list.--Opqr (talk) 12:37, 19 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    As an apartment resident, I don't understand how house can replace home. C933103 (talk) 07:47, 20 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

swap Operating system for Cooking[edit]

Proposal Closed for not comply with new guideline

More and more computer applications being made available to people have become cross-platform program, or even web-based program that doesn't need to change according to the use of different OS. Hence, even with OS being the most foundation software in computer, I think their importance in the general world have decreased that no longer warrant inclusion in the top 1000 articles. In contrast, I think what is more worthwhile to include would be Cooking, the act, art and technology that prepare foods for human consumption, potentially helping the development of human civilization.
