RationalWiki:Articles for demotion

There are 2 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 (there isn’t one) enough time to recover from our hangovers come to a 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. Meanwhile, adding or removing a bronze brainstar can be done unilaterally and you don't need to nominate an article to do so.

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.

  1. It is well-written and well-sourced with appropriate images. Bongolian (talk) 06:25, 20 May 2024 (UTC)

  4. The article is a very high-quality one and goes a long way towards contributing to RW's mission. Sincerely, Postuhenin the neurodivergent doodlebug! (say hi! ^^) 20:54, 22 May 2024 (UTC)
  5. While I don't consider it done, I think it's more quantity and topics that are missing than quality. I also plan to rework and move some more content from the ChatGPT article, which is also silver, mainly the "Prompt injection" section as that's a universal LLM issue. --ApooftGnegiol (talk) 21:07, 23 May 2024 (UTC)

Status quo[edit]

  1. It still could use some cleanup. For example something's wrong with Note #9, and I'm not sure what it should say. Bongolian (talk) 06:26, 21 May 2024 (UTC)
  2. This article requires serious attention. I ditched the nonsensical note mentioned by Bongolian above, but then the first reference I took a look at pointed to a dead site. There are also many links to twitter posts that should use archive snapshots. Some twitter references point to the mobile twitter view. There is also a tendency to use random screen shots on free sites as references, which should be avoided. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 13:20, 21 May 2024 (UTC)
