Second batch of mass-created portals based on a single navbox[edit]

Note: this is a followup to WP:Miscellany for deletion/Mass-created portals based on a single navbox which was closed[1] as "delete" on 14 April 2019.
Single navbox portals #2: Nominator's rationale[edit]

Every one of the 1,165 portals included in this mass nomination is part of a mass creation of portals based on a single navbox. That is, in each case the list of selected articles (using {{Transclude list item excerpts as random slideshow}} or {{Transclude linked excerpts as random slideshow}}) is drawn solely from a single navbox. For example, Portal:Comcast is based solely on Template:Comcast.

This makes each of these portals merely a fork of the navbox, with much less utility than the navbox because:

  • the navbox displays a full list of the articles. The portal displays only one page at a time, out of a randomly selected subset of up to 50 articles.
  • the navbox should be present on every page in the set. The portal always requires navigation to a separate page.

The topic's main page works much better as a navigational hub, because it includes:

  • both the topic navbox and related navboxes
  • A full summary of the topic rather than an excerpt of the lede.

I propose deleting all these portals in one go because,

  1. Being each built on a single navbox, they add no navigational utility, and are an inferior fork of another navigational tool
  2. Portals are not content; they are merely a means of navigating between content. So their mass deletion removes precisely zero encyclopedic content.
  3. The pages were rapidly mass-created. They were all created by the topic-banned portalspammer @The Transhumanist, who describes the creation process as taking betwen one and two minutes per portal (Have you tried creating 500 portals? It is rather repetitious/tedious/time-consuming (from 500 to 1000 minutes)). It would be a severe waste of the community's time to spend more collective time assessing each of them individually than was spent on their creation.

Some of these portals cover narrow topics which should never have a portal. Others cover broad topics which might be capable of supporting a thoughtfully-designed and properly-curated portal which used a selected article list extending way beyond the navbox. So, as in the first mass nomination, I propose that these pages be deleted without prejudice to recreating a curated portal not based on a single navbox, in accordance with whatever criteria the community may have agreed at that time. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 19:30, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Single navbox portals #2: List-making process[edit]
Main list

The process by which the main list below was made is set out at WP:Miscellany for deletion/Second batch of mass-created portals based on a single navbox/Selection process. The AWB module which I used is at WP:Miscellany for deletion/Second batch of mass-created portals based on a single navbox/AWB module.

I welcome and encourage all scrutiny of the list and of the list-making process. If you would like assistance in replicating or testing my work, please post at WT:Miscellany for deletion/Second batch of mass-created portals based on a single navbox/Selection process, and ping me. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 19:32, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Secondary list

The secondary list is a subset of the 36 portals which I removed from the first mass nomination, because checking revealed that they did not meet the criteria.

I processed that list to remove duplicates, non-existent pages, and pages already tagged for MFD; and then processed it again to keep only pages based on a single navbox. That left 21 pages. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 19:50, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Single navbox portals #2: discussion and survey[edit]
add your delete/keep/comment here
  • Portal:Lua programming language has a red lua error. Legacypac (talk) 20:58, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
    Wow that's priceless. In fairness, the red Lua error occurs in the "selected image" box, and perhaps that is, indeed, a good image of what Lua is. :-D Levivich 22:15, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete all per previous MfD. CoolSkittle (talk) 21:41, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete all per previous MfD: the reasoning is sound, the selection process appears rigorous, and the result is a net positive. Triptothecottage (talk) 21:51, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete all because there is overwhelmingly-clear consensus from the first bundled MfD that it is a waste of time to go through these one by one and that the way these bundles have been selected and vetted means we have a list of automatically mass-created portals that we can "safely" mass delete. Nevertheless, I went through the list and looked at a random bunch. It was more of the same:
    • Did you know...
    Portal:Apes: ... that the poet Edith Sitwell described Lady Angela Forbes as "an elderly gorilla affected with sex appeal"?
    Portal:Homer: ... that Homer Franklin Bassett, a librarian in Waterbury, Connecticut, described 125 new species of gall wasp?
    Portal:Michelangelo: ... that James Niehues, who paints ski resort trail maps, has been called "the Michelangelo of snow" and "Monet of the mountain"?
    Not sure where those captions came from, since the caption on commons for the scale image is "Barbie bathroom scale set at 110 lbs". The other image has "Back cover of Barbie booklet about how to lose weight."--Auric talk 23:11, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
    The captions came from the portal. The portal has pictures of the Barbie scale and the Barbie diet book but not of Barbie or anything else Barbie-related. A horrible presentation. Levivich 23:15, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
    They aren't manually coded on the portal as you suggest. I did some digging and found that the portal grabs them from a gallery on the Barbie article.--Auric talk 18:09, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
    As far as I understand, nothing on these microportals is manually coded. That the script grabbed these two pictures from the "body image" section of the article, and not any others, illustrates (heh) the danger of automatically-created portals, and why they deserve the moniker "portalspam".

  • Delete all, but oppose speedy unless a specific speedy deletion criterion is established. It still takes more time to delete than it did to create, but this is not the place to establish speedy deletion criteria. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 02:59, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete All as follows:
      • After a full seven days of discussion, not short-circuiting the discussion process, not a snow closure.
      • Without prejudice to re-creation, but also without prejudice to objections to re-creation.
      • Automated single-navbox portals serve no exterior purpose. The only good that they do is, for those who think that portals are necessarily beneficial, they provide the false satisfaction of having done something, while actually doing nothing.
      • All of the arguments about automated portals can be restated.
      • With thanks to User:BrownHairedGirl.
      • I have great confidence in User:BrownHairedGirl's methodology and judgment.
      • Robert McClenon (talk) 03:19, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete all per previous consensus established here. These portals as based off a single navbox provide no additional navigational functionality than the main article, defeating the purpose of a portal. Many thanks to BrownHairedGirl for putting together this and the last batch, and for her extremely well written explanations. Meszzy2 (talk) 04:01, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Delete all, Per current and previous nominator's rationale. They add no value to the encyclopedia, all are automated and using a single navbox. I have checked all the list and none of them were important. Editor-1 (talk) 07:16, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete all - once again per Robert McClendon. Tazerdadog (talk) 08:47, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment I agree with the requests by @Robert McClenon, @Arthur Rubin and @Espresso Addict that this discussion should remain open for the full 7 days.
Here's why: With any XfD discussion, the best result is a clearcut decision one way or the other where there has been broad participation and the nomination has been well-scrutinised. Both participation and scrutiny are boosted by running for the usual 7 days.
Single-page nominations can usually be checked quite easily and quickly. But when a nomination raises complex issues (which this doesn't), or when it involves an large set of pages (as this very clearly does), it takes time for any editor to do detailed scrutiny ... so understandably, most editors just check a sample.
So in cases such as this, letting the nomination run its course significantly increases the likelihood that any errors will be found. I have confidence in my own methodology, but the community's confidence in any outcome is significantly boosted by knowing that others had time to assess it, and knowing that no corners were cut in this scrutiny phase.
It's particularly important with these automated portals, because an RFC proposal for a speedy deletion process was closed as no consensus[2]. The community clearly supports the cleanup, but doesn't want shortcuts around due diligence.
With a nomination this size, an overturned close would be highly disruptive. It is not in anyone's interest to risk that.--BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 10:58, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
Excellent points, striking my WP:SNOW. UnitedStatesian (talk) 22:00, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete them all. I have tested the 1144+21 for the criterion given by BHG. No error found. To be in conformity with how I have !voted in the previous discussions, I have to say that 3 of these portals were asserting a maintainer, namely:
- Maintained, 0 subpages, created 2018-09-17 04:51:49 by User:TTH, maintained by User:The Transhumanist : Portal:Bronze Age
- Maintained, 0 subpages, created 2018-09-07 09:25:26 by User:TTH, maintained by User:Auric : Portal:Unidentified flying objects
- Maintained, 0 subpages, created 2018-09-07 06:40:46 by User:TTH, maintained by User:Grey Wanderer : Portal:Columbia, Missouri
Maybe a comment from one of these three users could change my opinion about one of these 3 portals, but not so sure. Pldx1 (talk) 11:39, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
  • A favor Anyone with AWB have a fast way to add a link to each portal's history next to the numbered nomination above, to save a click for each? UnitedStatesian (talk) 11:42, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
UnitedStatesian, I'll look into it. SITH (talk) 14:37, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
Unfortunately not. I tried replacing "# [[:Name]]" with "#{{pagelinks|Name}}" but I got a template limits error. In other words, the {{collapse top}} and {{collapse bottom}} templates would contain too much data. SITH (talk) 14:59, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
@SITH, that's why I deliberately did not use {{Pagelinks}}. Even if it didn't each templatelimits on this page, it would certainly reach it when transcluded into MFD, and break that page. I will look into other ways of adding a history link. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 15:04, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
I figured out how to add the links. Gimme a few minutes to do it. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 15:14, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
@SITH, I made a subpage of hardcoded pagelinks. See Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Second batch of mass-created portals based on a single navbox/Pagelinks.
Hope this helps. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 16:10, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Snow delete: consensus is clear, these don't meet WP:POG. SITH (talk) 14:37, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete all, no SNOW Might as well leave the discussion open. Yes, this is going to pass so I understand the rationality behind WP:SNOW but there has been useful discussion of portal-related topics and I think that this is going to be an important part of portal history on Wikipedia. Let the commentary continue. This is a learning process for all of us. If you find it a waste of time, don't comment/read it and just wait for it to close. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Prometheus720 (talkcontribs) 17:26, 15 April 2019 (UTC) (UTC)
  • Delete all these portals have no value beyond that found in the main article anyway. The contents invariably consists of part of the main article's lead section, selected contextless images from that article, random articles taken from a navbox in that article and some portal boilerplate. The only content not present in the main article is the DYKs and news items, when applicable, and those are often silly. To add to the examples above, only two of the six DYKs in Portal:Ghosts are actually about ghosts, Portal:Paper has two DYKs about scientific papers and one about paperclips, Portal:Coal has an item about the Coal tit, which has nothing to do with coal other than having a black bit, and Portal:Candy and Portal:Leather both have items about sea creatures. Some of these topics would make viable portal topics but those need to be written with care by actual humans. Hut 8.5 21:25, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Delete all As with the previous batch, the methodology applied by BHG appears to be sound, and sampling found no errors at this time. I echo the previous sentiments of my last !vote, and maintain my previous position on navbox-based portals as well. Also, the Lua error on Portal:Lua programming language is hilarious. — AfroThundr (u · t · c) 04:22, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
  • delete all reuse of wikipedia content happens at other sites, encouraged and unstoppable. Bombing this site with static pages that harvest content to a user-defined subjective assemblage was certain to be disruptive, in this case the namespace has been weaponised to create an arena that seeks to divide creators and maintainers. I would support of a block of any prime mover in this absurdly subjective and toxic game-playing in our community, THH would be first up. cygnis insignis 06:13, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
