GA Reassessment[edit]

This discussion is transcluded from Talk:Rainbow flag/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the reassessment.

This article has been expanded with a lot of unsourced content since passing GA in 2007. Therefore, it fails GA criteria 2. sst 12:27, 14 October 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Since there has been no progress after more than 7 days of the start of the reassessment, and I have already notified relevant WikiProjects, I am delisting this article. sst 08:12, 22 October 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I notice this section was deleted, then re-inserted, because of Pyxis of Solidarity's defence of it in the talkpage discussion: I'm not clear where that was, but the PoR banner appears to be a two-tone brown, not a rainbow flag at all. Do we need to keep it? Moonraker12 (talk) 21:57, 31 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I assume that edit summary refers to this comment by Pyxis Solitary: The Buddhist, Armenian Republic, Peace movement, Andean Indigenism (Wiphala), Basque nationalism, Jewish Autonomous Oblast, and Patriots of Russia flags should not be deleted until it's determined that sources ... do not verify their having used colors of the rainbow. I don't think this is a reasonable argument; per WP:BURDEN, the editor who wants to keep the material should find sources to justify its inclusion, rather than challenge other editors to prove the non-existence of sources. In the case of Patriots of Russia, it seems they did use a rainbow logo until 2014 (File:Patriotsofrussia.jpg), but a logo is not a flag, so I think it's out of scope for this article. Dan from A.P.

By all means, let bureaucracy be your guiding light. Pyxis Solitary (yak). L not Q. 09:48, 4 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
So, what are we saying; that the PoR did use a rainbow image after all, but they put it on a logo, not a flag: So where does that leave the section in the article? In or out? Moonraker12 (talk) 23:03, 8 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I say out, as do Bluerasberry, Bilorv and Caeciliusinhorto in the section above. Pyxis Solitary is the sole objector, and doesn't seem willing to offer any particular reason for objecting except that "sources might exist". If you (Moonraker12) agree with removing the section, I think we can call that a consensus to remove. Dan from A.P. (talk) 05:29, 9 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
To reply, (belatedly); I concur with the changes made on 9 April to resolve this. Regards, Moonraker12 (talk) 23:15, 21 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
