RationalWiki:Articles for demotion

From RationalWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
There are 3 pages marked for demotion:

Some articles here are good. Like, really good. So good, you want others to know how good they are. Others were once really good, and now... not so much. If you believe an article is worthy or no longer worthy of a Silver or perhaps even Gold brainstar, you can place it on this page, where it will be promptly ignored carefully considered by the Mob.

The only rule we seem to agree upon is "Thou Shalt Use Common Sense", but in general...

  1. Add the {{Article for demotion}} (or just {{afdem}}) template to the top of the article you wish to demote
  2. Click on the relevant redlink at the top of the article's page, add {{subst:Template:Article for demotion discussion starter}} at top.
  3. Add {{RationalWiki:Articles for demotion/"ArticleName"}} to the top of this page
  4. Give the cabal enough time to recover from our hangovers come to a general consensus.
  5. After the voting is more or less settled, move {{RationalWiki:Articles for demotion/"ArticleName"}} to a proper place in the vault, and add the result to the title.
  6. Remove the template from the article itself. If the article has been approved for demotions, you may have the dishonors.

In addition, keep in mind that for a Gold Brainstar, you will need to have a Cover Story page prepared. This is because pages with a Gold Brainstar are added to the featured article selection on the Main Page.

And don't forget to subscribe. This will allow you to see when a new article for demotion is added.

To judge whether an article is suitable for demotion, see: Article rating.

  • I'd like a little more substantial intro but idk I'm more used to this stuff from MarioWiki. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 07:03, 5 September 2022 (UTC)

  1. All citations checked, have read through everything for content, grammar and links. Seems thorough at least up until 2019, the year of LaRouche's death. Bongolian (talk) 01:41, 21 August 2022 (UTC)
  2. Yes, make it silver. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 03:58, 21 August 2022 (UTC)
  3. I removed some strikeout humor. It looks ready to be posted now. --Andrew5 (talk) 01:17, 17 September 2022 (UTC)

Demote to silver[edit]

  1. Citations are fixed now. I also made some revisions. Bongolian (talk) 03:46, 8 September 2022 (UTC)

Status quo[edit]

  1. I don't think it warrants a demotion. I think it should stay where it is. Daemonspudguy (talk) 20:23, 6 September 2022 (UTC)
  2. I appreciate Bongo's efforts, but without really knowing what's going on, because Cosmik left it bare and didn't reply to anything for 3 months, I feel really uncomfortable demoting it. Andrew5 (talk) 01:18, 17 September 2022 (UTC)


  • Whaaaaaaat? Andrew5 (talk) 13:48, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
  • I'll just assume that's what Cosmik wants. No opinion at this time. Andrew5 (talk) 17:56, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Need some cleanup, particularly references that don't work. Bongolian (talk) 07:05, 7 September 2022 (UTC)
