RationalWiki to do list

Contents: New article suggestions - Recent suggestionsCover story nomineesArticles requiring attentionArticle writing resources - Technical

If you are really bored, you can help RationalWiki by writing stuff for us.

If you are really really bored, you can visit articles for deletion and see what needs pruning.

You can also help expand articles.

This is a place where:

  • You can add topics that you think might be good article subjects.
  • You can draw people's attention to articles which you think are mission-critical and/or need work.
  • You can find articles that are nearing front page status and bask in the reflected glory of getting "your" article on the main page.
  • You can find bits of random wikicruft that fitted nowhere else.

If you find yourself creating a stub-level article just to remove a link from the list, consider whether you should be doing it at all.

[edit] [view]

Information icon.svg How to add new entries:
  1. Expand each of the year subsections and Ctrl-F or Cmd-F to see if your suggestion already exists.
  2. If no one has suggested it, yet, add your entry under Put article suggestions here (if you like focused editing) or at the top of the most recent year under Recent (if you don't mind doing tons of scrolling).
  3. Considering searching for and linking to related existing RationalWiki articles as well as the Wikipedia entry on your suggested topic in order to help stimulate interest.

Put article suggestions here[edit]

Gnome-colors-gtk-edit.svg If you click the [Edit] link next to "Put article suggestions here" and edit in this section here, the editor window won't show the full list of recent suggests and new articles, so you won't have to scroll as much to preview your changes. You can move your suggestion down to the Recent list when you're done, or another editor will move it for you.

5The Pizza MeterWikipedia or Washington Pizza IndexCreate draft[1][2] - This page was recently deleted from Wikipedia,[3] on April 2 (AfD discussion here). However, after the April 13 Iranian strikes in IsraelWikipedia, the topic has been popping up again.[4][5] (Archived copy of the deleted Wikipedia article)

3Evelyn Wood:Wikipedia The architectWikipedia of a form of education woo called "speed reading",Wikipedia elaborated on in the book "Scan Artist" by Marcia Biederman, which this editor has just started listening to on Audible.Wikipedia (For bonus points, she's also connected to Mormon evangelism and its associated craziness.) I doubt I'll be able to construct a quality article based on one book that I'll most likely be half-listening to, but I read the summary about the rise of her paradigm and its subsequent debunking by science, and I'm surprised that an article on this charlatan doesn't already exist here. Maybe an article on speed readingWikipedia is needed as well.

11Operation Paperclip:Wikipedia After WWII, the Americans recruited several Nazi scientists to work on American projects to beat the Soviets — most notably Werner Von Braun, the Nazi scientist who fathered the Moon program.

7An article on Plurality,Wikipedia a subculture of people who identify as having multiple personalities, and also works as a support community for those with Identity Disorders; more and more awareness about these people has been raised, and in my experience, are recognized and accepted in the Leftist Communities that I am in.
upneutraldown
6Voice of the Martyrs:Wikipedia A human rights activism group that claims to aid persecuted Christians around the world (to the point that their online domain is "persecution.com"). While they've done some legitimately noble things, this doesn't change the fact that they also have a very scummy underside, à la Salvation Army. Amongst other things, they covered up the allegations of child abuse against their USA branch's executive director (who committed suicide over the allegations) to the point that they fired Michael Wurmbrand, the son of VOM's founder, when he called for an independent investigation into the matter, and refused to accept his wishes to stop using his parents' images afterward. Not to mention, they cut off all support to their Nigerian branch after it turned out that the leader was responsible for committing numerous crimes, including child labor and rape.

11Victim card:Wikipedia Remember those people that like to blame victims? Well, this is what these people do when someone pushes them in a corner for their bigotry.

8Demiurge:Wikipedia A.K.A. Yaldabaoth. The Gnostic answer to the problem of evilthat jerkWikipedia answering to the name of "YHWH" in the Old Testament was really a filthy, narcissistic, tyrannical impostor, and the material universe was never intended to be free of suffering in the first place. It's surprising that we don't have an article on this yet.

12Might makes right:Wikipedia It gets mentioned as a talking point for multiple faulty arguments, many of which involve a god. Yet we somehow don't have an article on this particular aphorism.

4Amala EkpunobiCreate draft - Pretty much discount Candace Owens. Another starlet from PragerU whose major claim of being brainwashed at an early age by the "far-left" and spouting several far-right talking points under the guise of reasonable discourse who would be right at home having a page on this website to tell people to steer clear.

19Content farmsWikipedia — These sites and accounts regularly push false or misleading information with clickbait titles to fool people, usually minors, into clicking and then they reap the advertising revenue from it. Especially pervasive on YouTube due to the lack of moderation, but also present on search engines. Generative AI only makes this problem worse.

15Dead Internet theoryWikipedia — An up-and-coming conspiracy theory that states the internet in general "died" in 2017, and has been hijacked by AI and algorithms created by the U.S. government to manipulate humans.

17 ProfanityWikipedia — I'm surprised we don't have a page on this yet, especially with its implications on free speech and how some public figures gleefully abuse it, like with Duterte giving Pope Francis his classic "your mom's a whore" epithet.

28 Dr. SeussWikipedia - We have an article on Horton Hears a Who! but not on the man himself whose extensive use of sociopolitical messages on his children's picture books attracted criticism and commentary. Some of Seuss's books were pulled from circulation due to racially insensitive themes, though it is worth noting that he wrote Horton as an apology to the Japanese whom he denounced and mocked during the war, especially when he saw the aftermath of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

22 Sweet Baby Inc.Wikipedia - AKA the targets behind GamerGate Part 2: Electric Boogaloo: The Legend of Curly's Gold.

16 Angel StudiosWikipedia - The Utah-based company responsible for unleashing Sound of Freedom to the world, though they've also taken on other conservative Christian content in hopes of turning them into the next big thing via crowdfunding. An entire article could be devoted to their antics as they make Pure Flix look sane by comparison. While they boast a creator-friendly platform, a couple of filmmakers have cried fowl on how that operates. Even the story of how they formed is legally suspect and rooted in Mormonism.

10 Genetically Modified Skeptic. Come on, we're the Atheist Wiki, but we still don't have an article for one of the figureheads of 2020s Atheist Youtube? Seriously?

8 Elsie Dinsmore,Wikipedia 19th-century American children's book series whose Christian themes found an audience within the fundie crowd in spite of its racist, sexist and more disturbingly, paedophilic subplots. The book series have also been adapted into doll form a la American Girl.

20 David Zaslav,Wikipedia Current CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery. Known for his deleting shows & movies that haven't been aired yet. Such as Batgirl (which off course The Fandom Menace loved him for). Has recently been revealed to have been collaborating with Chinese Propaganda Outlets. There is a current movement to get rid of him: #FireDavidZaslav that i support.

26 Charlie Chaplin,Wikipedia English comedian and later political activist, best known as The Tramp and Adenoid Hynkel. Given how we have an article about fellow McCarthyism victim John Lennon, I am surprised that we don't have a page on this guy yet.
upneutraldown
21 Catholic Medical AssociationWikipedia (CMA), a group perhaps most interesting to RW for its religiously-based commitment against transgender acceptance and seemingly, also gay acceptance thus its endorsement of anti-gay conversion therapy. CMA has some overlap with the American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds). CMA produces a journal called Linacre Quarterly, a common citation for anti-gay arguments, with "scientific findings" that are most likely working backwards from an already-set religious conclusion (they do argue after all, in one court case, that to reach another conclusion would contradict the teachings of the Church). Beyond endorsing the practice, CMA apparently also published conversion therapy advice in the late 1990s.

11 Infestation: Origins,Wikipedia Thinly-veiled neo-Nazi dog whistle game themed after Steamboat Willie to cash in on Mickey Mouse's newfound freedom. Despite the developers' attempts at feigning ignorance over the references, the game was still clearly made with the intent to sow far-right sentiment.

37 Alexei Navalny,Wikipedia I'm actually shocked the man Putin fears the most doesn't have a page here. He should.
upneutraldown
40 Esoteric Nazism,Wikipedia a small new religious movement that literally believes Adolf Hitler was a god or some such. A wide range of other very surreal beliefs may or may not include that there is or once was a secret utopian continent called Hyperborea where Aryans came from (who may have been giants... or aliens... or Amalekites... or something), that traditional European folklore is literally true (gnomes and shit — but is that just overlap with broader Western esotericism?), swastikas and runes are magical, Atlantis existed and maybe Aryans came from there actually, etc. Often ties into neopaganism and/or Hinduism. See also: Savitri Devi, Vril,Wikipedia Nazi UFOs, Faustian spirit, Occultism in Nazism,Wikipedia O9AWikipedia, Thule Society,Wikipedia Julius Evola, Ahnenerbe,Wikipedia Robert Charroux, Woden's Folk, Axel Stoll, and Otto Rahn. Compare: Positive Christianity.

New articles[edit]

New icon shiny badge.svg These former suggestions have been recently created and may still need plenty of work.

163

Roblox,Wikipedia a video game platform which has >50% of US kids on it, surprisingly has on-mission points. Compliance with Chinese government censorship, firstly. Young'uns are now politically active at increasingly early ages, so political & religious groups of every stripe (believe me, anything you can think of) have evangelized there, from Roman Catholic masses & processions in the Philippines (done in lieu of in-person ceremonies no thanks to COVID-19) to even creationists (here is a group based on AiG). Wired discusses fascist recruitment, but only scratches the surface (NBC report on the same). This discusses one arrest involving an ISIS group. Multiple reports argue the platform's business model is based on child labor (and, this editor would add, something akin to a pyramid scheme). Many reports cover sexual predators "run amok" on Roblox. There are some more topics of potential coverage, but that's enough. We have GTA & even Ruben Sim, why not this?

112

StalinismWikipedia A political philosophy espoused by Joseph Stalin, basically one of the original totalitarian ideologies of the 20th century, along with Italian Fascism and Nazism. Currently just a redirect to Joseph Stalin

Nicolás MaduroWikipedia: 46th president and dictator of Venezuela since 2013.

The Fandom Menace I’m surprised these scumbags don’t have a page already as both several ComicsGate members and Computing Forever are members of this hate group. IMO Cullen is the group’s most dangerous member. They mostly spread lies about Star Wars and formed after The Last Jedi, but they attack other franchises. Star Trek, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, cartoons. Basically gamergate and ComicsGate but encompassing all of need culture.

Jesse Singal.Wikipedia Another contrarian wanker. An early force in pushing anti-trans hysteria, dropping an infamous piece in The Atlantic in 2018. Has even defended Kiwi Farms.

Javier Milei the new president of Argentina. This is such a "duh" and he hardly needs introduction, but: he's a self-described anarcho-capitalist, with a massive hatred for anyone/anything he considers "leftist". He promised to destroy the country's central bank with dynamite, wants to take back the Falkland Islands, and possibly legalize the human organs trade. This is just to name a few of his many strange quirks. He was elected mainly on the back of there being an extreme economic disaster in the country.

22

Evie Magazine, a conservative women's magazine. According to Rolling Stone, it may be linked to Peter Thiel, PragerU, and the Daily Wire. A reader could easily confuse it for something like Elle Magazine, and indeed the founder wrote for Quillette in 2018: "Women's publications have tried to convince women they can be just like men, instead of celebrating femininity ... It was this gap in the market that made me and my colleagues wonder: 'What if there were a conservative Cosmo?'". The site posted an article somewhat defending QAnon (see here). Features other articles against vaccines/masks, trans people, birth control, abortion. Pro-election denial, etc., all laced between regular lifestyle articles. Coat the bullshit in sugar, and...

2024 U.S. presidential election:Wikipedia Might as well start the clownshow already, given the current candidates. Including the manchild that used to be president. And some current rumors about certain people that might wanna run as well.

Project 2025Wikipedia, a plan by the Heritage Foundation to reshape the Federal Government according to the values of Donald Trump; As one could expect, it's Bigoted and Authoritarian as all hell.

174VTuber:Wikipedia Originally started in Japan around the end of 2016, but saw a massive outburst in the west at the beginning of 2020 due to the pandemic. Its influence is as big as that of big Youtubers and also attract a certain crowd. This is a double-edged sword. On one hand, there's the fact that many of them have bad sleep and eating habits, because they are required to stream alot for several hours (some of them stream for almost half a day) for their agencies (big players here being Hololive, Nijisanji & VShojo) (if they aren't indies). The fact that a bunch of Parasocial fuckers (this is a very serious problem in this sector) harass & dig into these people's private lives (Most notably /vt/ on 4chan & r/VirtualYoutubers) or act like a bunch of creepy incels. Then, There's the Taiwan controversy, which led to the people in question getting suspended for 3 weeks and harrassed by Chinese viewers, which resulted in one of the 2 eventually leaving on her own accord. On the other hand, some vtubers tend to lure certain crowds to their channels due to their own attitudes being similar to that of their audiences (those that claim to be introverted, are actually socially awkward and/or Edgelords). Most of the popular ones have had their own share of controversies. Such as stereotype opinions about how black people talk, denying the holocaust, one pulling a Pewdiepie & thanking someone for their "shekels" after receiving a superchat (she is a bit of a bother herself, but I don't think it's enough to give this one it's own page yet. She seems to have become friends with a vtuber that already has a parcer call, so she might start copying that behaviour.), trying to own the haters on 4chan's board /vt/ by doing exactly the same thing that they're doing hoping it wouldn't have a backlash (which it did) & leaking confidential information. Are there LGBTQ+ vtubers? Yes, there are. Are they being targeted by people, despite its community being all about "wholesomeness"? Well, what do you think yourself?

165Anastasia Romanov,Wikipedia whose alleged escape from the massacre of her family at the hands of the Bolsheviks has inspired lots of storytelling and urban myths, despite her remains having been found alongside the rest of Tsar Nicholas's family. She has a particular penchant for starring alongside Grigori Rasputin, another common urban myth subject, in alternative-history stories.

Its inventor, Jan Sloot, purported that his system could encode a feature-length film in just eight kilobytes, despite the apparent impossibility of storing reams of complex data in such a small package. Sloot died of a heart attack in 1999, which lent itself well to conspiracy theories especially as the source code was never recovered.

It is a gray–black, polycrystalline compound, identified as a copper-doped lead‒oxyapatite.

Eyewitness identificationWikipedia and the accuracy thereof, especially in law enforcement (e.g. identity parades, picking out mugshots), is an interesting topic that has been widely studied. The failure of people to correctly identify suspects seems to go against common sense, and has relevance to other epistemological questions, as well as to wider issues in the criminal justice system.

The practice encourages and allows an animal to guide its own health, since unlike their wild counterparts, captive and domesticated animals rarely have the opportunity to forage on medical plants. The extracts offered include a variety of essential oils, absolutes, plant extracts, macerated oils, tubers, clays, algae, seaweeds and minerals. Once the animal has selected its remedy, it will then guide the session by inhaling it, taking it orally, or by rubbing a part of its body into it." Basically animal abuse with woo.

Indeed, while even the other wiki acknowledges that it basically edges towards conspiracy thinking, it hasn’t stopped others from reporting it as a supported lead to explain the origins of SARS-CoV-2. In fact, many have been speaking about it in the press as a working theory rather than what it is: a hypothesis, if not less than that. And while it may ultimately be true, the fact that it’s being advocated without any tangible credible evidence is concerning. This needs to be dealt with head-on at some point.

443Dr. Salvatore Cezar PaisWikipedia is listed as the inventor of four 2019 U.S. Navy patents that have been described as "Star Trek technology".[82] The patent names include "High frequency gravitational wave generator", "Piezoelectricity-induced Room Temperature Superconductor", "Electromagnetic ‘force field’ generator", and the one that initially caught my eye: US10144532B2 "Craft using an inertial mass reduction device". A patent prosecuted by a navy attorney, defended by a Navy CTO, and pushed through in an unusual way. There is a comment by a patent lawyer discussing the unusual nature of this here. There is some good analysis in it, and the comments after could explain all those UFO sightings as military craft tests.
"It is a well-known facet of quantum field theory that everything can be described in quantum mechanical terms. The complex interactions between a physical system and its surroundings (environment), disrupt the quantum mechanical nature of a system and render it classical under ordinary observation. This process is known as decoherenceWikipedia. However, it is argued that we can retard (delay) decoherence (and possibly even suppress it – namely decouple a physical system from the environment) by accelerated spin and/or accelerated vibration of electrically charged matter under rapid acceleration transients. This may be the very condition to achieve a state of macroscopic quantum coherence, the idea being that we never let the system achieve thermodynamic equilibrium, by constantly delaying the onset of relaxation to equilibrium (hence the production of maximal entropy is delayed). The system may ‘violently’ react by generating ‘anomalous’ emergent phenomena, such as, but not limited to, inertial mass reduction." Implementations of these patents are possibly what was pictured in the AATIPWikipedia UFO videos released by Tom DeLonge and recently confirmed by the US Navy found here. He recently released yet another controversial patent, this one titled "Plasma Compression Fusion Device" would be small enough to fit inside of a vehicle and produce energy on the gigawatt to terawatt scale.[83]

The documents' claim that Project 1794 was able to reach its goal of Mach 4Wikipedia when it was the predecessor to the AvrocarWikipedia project (which topped out around ~35mph) has also brought skepticism to their validity. The project was also named "1794", presumably after the 1794 silver dollar which became famous in 2010 when it broke the world record after being sold for nearly $8 million (the disc-shaped craft was silver and may have resembled the coin).

216The O. J. Simpson murder caseWikipedia (officially the People of the State of California v.

Simpson was tried on two counts of murder after the deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and waiter Ronald Lyle Goldman, in June 1994. We can write an article discussing the case not just as a cultural phenomenon but also discuss the overwhelming amount of logical fallacies (emotional appeal, Chewbacca defense, prosecutor's fallacy), dishonesty tactics and evidence gathering mistakes that took place during the trial and/or behind the scenes, which all had great impact on law in America. We can also discuss the impact on race relations that took place at the time. Simpson, being an African American, had a strong appeal toward the black community because of his seemingly squeaky clean image, charismatic personality and his rags to riches story with the majority of them believing he was innocent and being persecuted for his race. Because of this, there was a height of fear in Los Angeles of another race riot worse than the 1992 Los Angeles riots if he was prosecuted. Best books to use as research for the article would be Jeffrey Toobin's The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson, and Vincent Bugliosi's Outrage: The Five Reasons O.J. Simpson Got Away With Murder.

260ADIFOCreate draft (All DIrections Flying Object) is a Romanian company which has developed a VTOLWikipedia (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) aircraft resembling a flying saucer that is able to fly in all directions having the same aerodynamic characteristics in each direction. The aircraft has a unique configuration as a circular shape, and the fuselage is also the wing.[90] The aerodynamic body is axially-symmetric and is obtained by rotating a bidirectional Dolphin airfoilWikipedia around the axis perpendicular on the middle of the chord line. An ADIFO platform was tested at low speeds in a wind tunnel providing high lift/drag ratio as well as a wide range of useful incidence angles, even over 60 degrees. The aerodynamic center is located near the middle of the chord line near the body gravity center. The aerodynamic load is distributed relatively evenly along the body surface and has no stagnation point. During transonic flightWikipedia the body does not generate any shockwave on the surface, and no sonic boom is generated. There are low vibrations, low aerodynamic noise, and low heating at high speeds. In transonic flight the drag is drastically reduced compared to existing airfoils which ensures very high fuel-efficiency at transonic and supersonic speeds. Moreover, the center of pressure remains close to the center of symmetry, meaning no jump of pitching moment, and insignificant roll and yaw moments. Also, there are no lift fluctuations, so in conclusion this will mean a smooth transition from subsonic to supersonic flight! Video here

94"Clean Wehrmacht" myth,Wikipedia Germany's answer to the so-called "Lost Cause" of the Confederacy, with denialists/negationists especially within veterans' circles downplaying if not completely dismissing any atrocities carried out by Werhmacht servicemen. While there could be indeed those who simply fought for the fatherland and did not simply buy into Hitler's bullshit (hurr durr Pope Benedict XVI when he was a Hitlerjugend soldier even if he was roped into it despite the Ratzingers being vehemently anti-Nazi), there's damning evidence that a significant number of German troops who were indeed just as guilty as the Waffen-SS goons who are even more villified.

30Pierre Poilievre,Wikipedia Libertarian moron who's currently the leader of the CPC and future MP if Trudeau doesn't step up his game. Claims to be Pro LGBTQ+, but was seen midway July 2023 taking pictures with some people wearing Straight Pride T-Shirts. He, as any good conservative, is keeping his mouth shut about this, as are the other CPC members. Has some issues with Trudeau not agreeing on New Brunswick's new law for LGBTQ+ students, telling him to "butt out and let provinces run schools and let parents raise kids". Added: He's not a libertarian or a centre-right Tory. He's a hard-right goon who supported the 2022 "trucker convoy", Canada's version of January 6. He did a photo-op with militant far-right secessionist Jeremy MacKenzie ("militant" as in "arrested earlier this year on numerous weapons charges"). He's promoted the "Great Reset" conspiracy theory and tabled a private member's bill against vaccine mandates. He idolizes Jordan Peterson and dropped a white-supremacist dogwhistle on his podcast. In 2008 he said that residential school survivors should learn "the values of hard work and independence and self-reliance" instead of seeking monetary reparations for being subjected to state-sanctioned abuse and cultural genocide. (He did apologize for that one.) He wants to abolish Canada's social safety-net and replace it with a "tiny survival stipend" for the poor contigent on them finding work. He's stated that he's pro-choice on abortion – saying otherwise is political suicide in Canada – but his voting record is firmly anti-abortion.
