Looking for additional input on List of military alliances[edit]

Hi all, myself and others would like the additional input of others in reaching a consensus for determining what to include/exclude on List of military alliances as there have been some minor disagreements recently when attempting to clean up the List.

MOS:DL vs MOS:DL in lists of supercentenarians[edit]

I noticed MOS:OL was applied incorrectly at the List of Danish supercentenarians, since MOS:DL states that:

Duplicate linking in stand-alone and embedded lists is permissible if it significantly aids the reader. This is most often the case when the list is presenting information that could just as aptly be formatted in a table, and is expected to be parsed for particular bits of data, not read from top to bottom.

I corrected it, only to be subsequently reverted. I was then adverted that this was the consistent format across all supercentenarians lists:

Indeed it is, but it's still in contravention to MOS:DL, is it not?Guarapiranga  23:42, 12 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Guarapiranga, just FYI for the next time you need a list like this: append #bawledit to the URL (or since you have section editing enabled, just click the blue marker next to "Search results"), click the magnifying glass and click "Generate bulleted list of links".

Proposed change to List of fictional non-binary characters edit notice[edit]

You are invited to join the discussion here, which is within the scope of this WikiProject. Presently, the edit notice for the List of fictional non-binary characters states that only character "is eligible for this list if the character or work they appear in is notable, specifically if the character is a main or recurring character. This is meant to keep the list meaningful and useful." This replaced the previous version which stated that only characters are eligible for the list if "their gender identity matches in some way human experience of gender." Comments from members of this project would be appreciated. Historyday01 (talk) 13:00, 15 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Use of the word "notable" to describe list entries[edit]

There is a dispute at List of vegetarians regarding how to describe members of the list. It is a basic list, listing people who have been identified as vegetarians. The inclusion criteria is limited to subjects who have an article on Wikipedia (blue links). Another editor wants to describe the subjects as "notable vegetarians" to "prevent spam". The list is stable and sourced, and addition of people without articles is minimal (unsourced additions are a bigger problem). I have opposed the use of the word "notable" because I don't think it is helpful to use Wikipedia terminology in an encyclopedic context. The discussion is going in circles, and I would welcome some third-party input at Talk:List of vegetarians#Adding "notable" to the lead. Betty Logan (talk) 00:54, 16 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
