JS Article Wizard

I want to suggest that a JS article wizard be worked on. Some advantages would include helping new creators identify pages that already exist, as well as the suggestion of redirects. It could also help with stuff like prefilling page creation forms for new editors. Awesome Aasim 20:48, 7 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Edit request 14 October 2023

Description of suggested change: Transclude the template Wikipedia:Articles for creation/ScamWarning somewhere in the article wizard, per consensus at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Articles for creation § More paid-review accusations. Limited participation, but I can't think of any reason why this change would be controversial.

While specifics were not discussed, I think placing it under Wikipedia:Article_wizard/CreateDraft would be a good idea. A whole page dedicated to the warning would be also nice.

 Not done for now: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{Edit template-protected}} template. Specifically, a consensus on where it should go. Discussion is still ongoing, and I don't really want to have to move it to multiple different pages. Primefac (talk) 15:23, 14 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I can't think of any reason why this change would be controversial @Ca, overall, I'd support having some sort of scam warning, but the major downside to this is that it contributes to banner blindness. There are a million pieces of important information to throw at new editors, and there are editors advocating for each of them to be shouted as prominently as possible, but if we actually did that (and we kinda do), new editors would either have to spend several hours reading before being able to do anything, or (what actually happens) they'd pay attention to whatever is most shouty at the expense of whatever is second-most shouty, which they'd start ignoring. So what we want is to communicate what we need to, but to do it in the most concise possible way. In this case, that'd mean rewriting the first/second paragraphs to boil it down to a single short paragraph, and then putting everything else (e.g. the "what to do if you've been targeted" info) behind a "learn more" link. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 15:48, 14 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Fair, I'll start a discussion soon at WT:WPAFC. Ca talk to me! 20:00, 16 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A discussion proposing changes to the article wizard should be held here, at the article wizard's talk page. {{Please see}} notices can be placed at other relevant talk pages. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 22:28, 16 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Discussion on Scam warning has cooled down

I am not sure what to make of this discussion but it failed to generate a lot of comments, despite me informing WP:VPPR. It has since cooled down and diverted to another issue. So I am asking for any template editor to use their discretion on where to place the warning and how the warning should be presented.

 Done I went with ARandomName123's suggestion at Wikipedia:Article wizard/CreateDraft, since it was the only concrete idea. My reading of that discussion is that adding a warning here was uncontested, but there seems to be agreement that it may be worth advertising in other places as well, which is out of scope here. * Pppery * it has begun... 18:40, 10 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
