Peer Review Request - Draft:Christopher Hollins

Hello, I am wondering if you would be interested in re-reviewing [Draft: Christopher Hollins]. It is about an American politician who is leading the charge in making sure all Harris County, Texans are able to vote by mail in the upcoming election. Harris County is a major county to watch because it is slated as a County that could determine whether Texas goes red or blue in November 2020 and Mr. Hollins' work will be instrumental in the outcome. He recently appeared on VICE, and has recently appeared on MSNBC and CNN in the coming daysBostickLaw (talk)BostickLaw (talk) 04:11, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

I just looked and I think there is more than enough coverage to justify an article. I am going to create one. I hope I am not stepping on any toes. I will just copy some of the material from the draft with the best sources and use WP:NPOV. I have zero COI with the subject. Never heard of the guy before and haven't lived in Texas for years. --David Tornheim (talk) 05:35, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
FYI. I used the WP:RS from Draft:Christopher Hollins to create Christopher Hollins. There is coverage of him in Wall Street Journal, NPR, and CNN, and plenty of Texas and Houston coverage too. I think it is safe to say he is sufficiently notable for an article. I changed language to make it more WP:NPOV and commented out the sections that I did not have time to review. Some of those sections might be okay or have material that can be save, but probably would need to be rewritten in WP:NPOV voice and will need to include material that is not flattering to the subject, which I believe the original draft failed to do. 07:38, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Update to peer review page

Hi all, I've boldly updated your project's peer review page (popflock.com Resource: WikiProject Politics/Peer review) by updating the instructions and archiving old reviews.

The new instructions use Wikipedia's general peer review process (WP:PR) to list peer reviews. Your project's reviews are still able to be listed on your local page too.

The benefits of this change is that review requests will get seen by a wider audience and are likely to be attended to in a more timely way (many WikiProject peer reviews remain unanswered after years). The popflock.com resource peer review process is also more maintained than most WikiProjects, and this may help save time for your active members.

I've done this boldly as it seems your peer review page is pretty inactive and I am working through around 90 such similar peer review pages. Please feel free to discuss below - please ping me in your response.

Cheers and hope you are well, Tom (LT) (talk) 00:00, 11 November 2020 (UTC)

"Silence implies consent" / "Qui tacet consentire videtur"

I'm looking at creating a page for the phrase or political notion that "silence implies consent." Currently the English phrase "silence implies consent" (and "silence means consent") redirect to the page on silence procedure, a bureaucratic method for formal settings, while the Latin phrase, "Qui tacet consentire videtur", redirects to a list of Latin phrases, which in turn links readers around to the silence procedure page. There seems not nearly enough about the phrase itself and its history, nor about its usage in colloquial settings, or in political history, especially for how often I hear the term or idea referenced, especially in a political sense. (These certainly aren't the most authoritative sources, but it seems likely there's more out there.) I'm no expert on this sort of thing, and I could certainly use help, but I'm also not sure if this is exactly the project to ask about it. -- HTGS (talk) 01:17, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
