AfC[edit]

actually, AfC is worse than AfD, it is more like premptive-prod. there is the trend to shift the burden on the content writer, and sit back and reject everything. why waste time debating deletion, where there is a semblance of policy discussion, and the possibility of keeping, when you can just template reject, and delete after 6 months. we advise never to go to AfC, all the editathons such as women in red do not use it. DGG was talking about blowing it up, but people who want to delete, defend it. Slowking4 (talk) 03:19, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

I think you have a good point, Slowking4. Many who ! Vote delete in AfD are very active on AfC. Megalibrarygirl (talk) 21:08, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia Library User Group is being renamed![edit]

Hello! In the past few months, the Wikipedia Library User Group has been undergoing some major planning and developments. We just finished our very first open call with the user group members, which was a great success (see the meeting minutes). If you joined us during the meeting, we’d like to thank you for your interest. If not, not to worry, we have lots of things planned for the user group in which you can participate.

This message is to inform you that based on the input received from the user group members and the founding members, it was agreed that the Wikipedia Library User Group’s name be reconsidered by a voting process. As a valued member of the user group, we’d like to invite you to vote on the list of potential names. You can vote by following this link. The poll will run for a timeframe of two weeks.
