Wikipedia in a Time of Coronavirus: the Talk page on the Coronavirus article

The following is what happens when the "gnoming" mentality runs into an actual major event -- the world COVID-19 outbreak. The major issue here is "disambiguation" - does the page fit into the old Coronavirus page or not? The copypasting begins below:

There is no doubt that the vast majority of people searching for the term "coronavirus" will be looking for an article directly related to the current pandemic. Very few people will be looking for information on the subfamily Orthocoronavirinae, so they should not be immediately directed to this article. I also wouldn't underestimate how easy it is for infrequent Wikipedia readers to miss the header directing them to other pages. To me, this move would pretty clearly be in our readers' best interests, though I'm curious what the rest of you think. Will(B) 15:25, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
One other thought—I realize that page views alone shouldn't be the determining factor here; however, I think there is a strong case that Orthocoronavirinae is no longer the primary topic of the term "coronavirus". The societal impact has been so large that I think it's fair to say the word "coronavirus" will forever be linked to the pandemic. However, there is obviously a lot of ambiguity in the word, which is why I'm proposing we make Coronavirus into a disambiguation page. Will(B) 15:35, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
  • I don't think this would be very helpful, since the article introduces all of the more specific topics that are on the disambiguation page. It is possible that a lot of people coming here are looking for the virus or the pandemic, but that is not really clear from the page views. Dekimasuよ! 16:44, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
Right or not, the word "coronavirus" is often used as shorthand to refer to the disease or the pandemic, not just the virus itself. Will(B) 15:04, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
Having the disambiguation page at the plain title is not helpful to any users. Dekimasuよ! 09:44, 20 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Support: I know we know what the article is about, and we see the links at the top of the page. But I think we have to be pragmatic: people are coming here thinking it's about the outbreak, since that's what "coronavirus" means to them, some are not taking notice of the page top links, and some are editing and making edit requests about the outbreak. Esowteric+Talk 17:09, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
    • Yeah, the number of edit requests on this talk page alone are evidence that people are assuming it's for COVID-19 without noticing the links at the top of the page. Will(B) 17:24, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Support per nom.--Ortizesp (talk) 17:27, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Speedy support For the sake of everyone the COVID-19 should be moved here, if people think "(group of viruses)" is a poor disambiguator then we can come up with a better name for this article in the future and move it then, (maybe "Orthocoronavirinae").★Trekker (talk) 17:38, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
    • Yeah I'm definitely open to other suggestions besides "(group of viruses)". Will(B) 17:41, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose I'm not convinced that this is accurate, helpful or necessary. We don't know that readers are missing the hat notes about the pandemic. They might be coming here seeking some background on coronaviruses in general. It would also be incorrect; if "coronavirus" is not a group of viruses, what is it? Graham Beards (talk) 17:53, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
    • It's true we don't really have any way to quantify how many readers are missing the note at the top, but as Esowteric mentioned, there is definitely evidence that some are. Though even if no one missed that note, I still think making this a disambiguation page would be the right move, because there's just no way the average person searching for "coronavirus" is looking for the broad group of viruses. And it's not incorrect to refer to the current virus strain as simply "the coronavirus", as that has quite clearly become the common name for it. (After all, we call it the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic, not the 2019–20 SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.) Will(B) 18:02, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
Your point about its becoming the common name is valid.Graham Beards (talk) 18:12, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
Although AIDS' common name was originally GRID, so with less than three months in the -english world, anything could happen. (talk)
Also, this is a clear example of a WP:BROADCONCEPT article. © Tbhotch (en-3). 20:02, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
I did think about that, but considering that this is a once-in-a-generation, maybe once-in-a-century pandemic, it's hard for me to imagine it won't be the primary topic of the word "coronavirus" for very many years. This is more than just "current events." Will(B) 20:30, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
See WP:BALL Graham Beards (talk) 20:53, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Comment More than one newspaper headline has spelled it "coronovirus". We should be thinking about how to deal with the redirect.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 21:07, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose per WP:CONCEPTDAB. The current DAB page is very thin; it's just this page, and the current outbreak, which is a directly correlated topic anyway. I don't think that is a more useful landing than this article, which isn't incorrect in any sense. Nohomersryan (talk) 21:48, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose: yes, this current event is massive, but cororonaviruses cause the cold among other things, the current outbreak and novel version is only one subset. This is WP:RECENTISM SITH (talk) 23:06, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Support Completely agree, even if this may be a temporary move while usage is stronger due to the pandemic. If common usage returns to its original sense once the pandemic passes, the article can move back. Not a chance all these views are for people wondering what other virus belong to Orthocoranavirinae. GoEThe (talk) 23:35, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, this proposal is (sort of understandably) getting a lot of pushback, but I think at the very least we should have a temporary big box at the top referring readers to other pages that they're more likely to be looking for. As I said, many casual readers are likely to miss the hatnote. Will(B) 15:03, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose as awkward and short-term thinking. -- Netoholic @ 02:32, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

  • Oppose, it is very helpful for users to learn that the coronavirus causing the current outbreak is only one of a family. The rest is recentism. --MartinoK (talk) 09:48, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose - this is pure short-term thinking. What happens when the next coronavirus hits? Should it be changed again? --awkwafaba (📥) 13:58, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
    • To be clear, I'm not proposing we have "coronavirus" redirect to the novel virus or the pandemic; I'm proposing we simply make it a disambiguation page. So if there were a "next coronavirus", we would simply add it to the disambiguation page. However, I think it's unlikely there will be a "next coronavirus". Yes, I'm aware SARS was a coronavirus, and there will likely be future epidemics caused by coronaviruses; however, the big difference here is that only this coronavirus is referred to as "the coronavirus" as its common name. The "next coronavirus", if there is one, probably won't be referred to as simply "the coronavirus". Will(B) 15:25, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose Already a disambig header, people can navigate to the article they are looking for. Hemiauchenia (talk) 15:21, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Comment After seeing "Cornavirus" in a headline and, when I typed that to make the red link appear so I could create a redirect, I found at least two articles aht had that spelling somewhere and corrected it. The redirect is to "Coronavirus", but should it be?— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 17:52, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
I've rcatted it as {{R from misspelling}}: but I would have left it red, it is actually allowable to let the search engine do its job when someone types something. I imagine you found the two misspellings from search engine results: but by creating the redirect, no other reader can do so as easily. So your question is basically "what would people expect to find when they typed "cornavirus"? The answer: what the search engine tells them. (talk) 01:43, 20 March 2020 (UTC)
I found the misspellings because that's how the newspaper web sites spelled the headlines.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 16:53, 20 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose. We are an encyclopedia, not a journal of popular culture. Just as Apple is a fruit, not a computer company, so Coronavirus is a family of viruses of which COVID-19 and its resultant disease and pandemic are just one example, others being the viruses that caused the SARS and MERS outbreaks, which were also important topics. As a final point, all three articles related to the pandemic are linked from the top hatnote, so it's not as if having a disambiguation page would actually result in any fewer clicks or convenience for readers.  — Amakuru (talk) 22:25, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
  • OpposeWP:NOTNEWS. An enyclopaedia should help people find detailed information, and be more permanent than a mutating strain of a fairly common virus. (talk) 01:40, 20 March 2020 (UTC)
  •  Question: Is there a precedent set? Are there any other virus families that have received the "<term> leads to a disambiguation page" treatment already? --Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝) 02:16, 20 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose, for the sake of scientific accuracy. BD2412 T 02:50, 20 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Support I'd prioritise aiding readers reach what they are aiming for – and I'm supposing that's the current pandemic, at the moment, and as long as the situation will stay critical. I'd lean into defaulting Coronavirus → Coronavirus (disambiguation) and renaming the current page Coronaviruses, if that's not dead wrong, scientifically. I'd strongly suggest temporarily emphasising the in-page disambiguation paragraph (more than it is now), hoping that's possible within Wikipedia standards. I would also consider temporarily emphasising Covid-19 on the disambiguation page Pax.mtx (talk) 08:39, 20 March 2020 (UTC)
This isn't that helpful. Even on the disambiguation page, you'd still have to select a link to get to Covid-19, which is already covered by the hatnote on the current coronavirus page anyway. AngusWOOF (bark • sniff) 19:02, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

Oppose. It's a subfamily, a taxonomic classification, not a "group of viruses". Plus, it's wrong application of disambiguation; there's no other "coronavirus". There's only one meaning of the word, and it's this. The brackets are redundant. · • SUM1 • · (talk) 15:36, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

Kinda-Wikipedia: James Randi and the Trail of Wreckage Behind Him

This began as a series of emails between myself and Eric Barbour on Randall James Zwinge (James Randi) this summer. Pretty much I am writing about James Randi because he is 91 years old at time of posting, and I fear that if he were to die in the next six months that a "canonization" would begin from the remains of the James Randi Educational Foundation, the people at CSI(COP) who are still fans, his former JREF message board (now run by "International Skeptics" maybe-group), and various others. Had he died a decade ago, the resistance, fanboy rage, and other irrationalities would have made talking about Randi's darker aspects online nearly impossible. As it is, his Wikipedia BLP (biography) has people watching it. One of my sources for this article was Tim Cridland's 2016 review of Randi's biographic documentary An Honest Liar (2014) for which Cridland set up a one-shot blog. Tim Cridland has a background both in investigative reporting through his unfortunately-defunct 'zine Off the Deep End and in the sort of stage performance James Randi started out in - Cridland is also "Zamora the Torture King" a sideshow human blockhead. Randi started out as "Randall the Telepath", but then we are getting ahead of ourselves.

Randi up to 1970

Randall James Zwinge was born in Toronto, Canada on August 7, 1928. He dropped out of Canadian high school at the age of 17, and started doing magic for a travelling carnival - he was into magic since childhood when he had seen Henry Blackstone, Sr. perform, and doing card tricks passed the time when he was in a cast after a childhood bicycle accident. For a lot of his early career (1946 onward) he seemed to orbit around Toronto doing both the aforementioned stage mentalist act ("Randall the Telepath"), doing escapism magic (he liked escaping from straightjackets while hanging upside-down in the air - he later mocked that bit in a cameo on Happy Days in 1978) and being involved with the Toronto Globe and Mail's predecessor Midnight, which was a nightlife publication in the 1950s. Cridland mentions this publication in his 2013 interview with Radio Misterioso (Greg Bishop) on the predecessor article to the movie review, a 2012 The Anomalist magazine article titled "The Real James Randi." What Cridland discovered is that Randi is rather loose with recounting his own past - before he was a high school dropout he allegedly destroyed a Spiritualist church through his understanding of "cold reading" as a teenager. But had he? Was there such a church or group? Cridland in his interview says he could not find any scrap of proof that the incident occurred.

The "Randall the Telepath" act had that same problem - according to Cridland he advertised himself as an actual telepath, not a stage act. He also made predictions or psychic "detective work" for money as late as the age of 26:

.....In the early days Randi represented himself to the public and to the media as a genuine mind reader. In later interviews and accounts he would always claim he did this only briefly, but the historical record shows that this went on from his teens until at least the age of 26. The film shows a very public prediction that Randi, then known as Randall Zwinge, made for a Toronto newspaper. In the film Randi says the prediction, which seemingly foretells the outcome of the World Series, happened when he was 21.
 In a self-recorded interview, Randi would say that he was always able to talk his way out if a reporter or interviewer would bring past claims of being psychic. Over the years Randi has a tale of a man from Florida who came to visit him believing he had genuine psychic powers and offered him money to give him information. In one version, told in Randi's book Conjuring [1992], he wants to know the outcome of horses races. Randi then elaborates on the moral dilemma this caused him and states that that was one of the reasons he dropped the whole phony psychic routine. In AHL, Randi's friend, magician Penn Jillette, talks of this time in Randi's life and says that is commendable that “...he backed away from it." 
 The problem is that Randi has said he backed away, but the record shows he went back to it again and again. Randi's account in Conjuring refers to the World Series prediction and states that he was "eighteen years old" when this occurred. There are other accounts of similar predictions from different years. Both my article and AHL show that Randi's claims of being psychic went on for at least eight years beyond his supposed encounter with the unnamed man from Florida. Randi's reasons for dropping the psychic routine are much more likely related to his success as a stage magician and escape artist than a moral dilemma.
 Although Randi and his associates demand a high criteria for accuracy in the people and claims they scrutinize, Randi gets away with slippery story telling.....

And this isn't even mentioning his time doing horoscopes as "Zo-ran" in Midnight - today he would say "it was an experiment in gullibility", back then he was doing it for a paycheck.

By the early 1960s Randi was in New York City, doing regular stage magic and also appearing on Long John Nebel's WOR-AM radio talk show. When Nebel left that station to go to syndication, James Randi took over the show. Along the way Randi came into contact with James Moseley, the editor of Saucer News (later Saucer Smear); we don't know if they ran into each other through Nebel's show or the Joe Pyne syndicated TV talk show (Moseley made a number of appearances on The Joe Pyne Show)

[13:13] <Ottava> Hmm
[13:13] <Ottava> Canadians are weird ;/
[13:13] <derp> so everyone has remarried with Over there.

[13:14] <Ottava> Did you see the opening games?
[13:14] <Ottava> What did you think of the tap dancing and fiddle playing?
[13:15] <Ottava> and the magical canoe?
[13:15] <derp> It was magical :)
[13:16] <Ottava> Was that all truly Canadian? : )
[13:17] <derp> Well, of course :)
[13:17] <derp> The magical canoe is a québecois story.

[13:19] <derp> yay for hokey bitches!
[13:19] <Ottava> The blowout reinforces every criticism of the women's tournament, such as the need for a mercy rule or the notion that the women's tournament is "essentially an intramural competition between the same group of Canadian and U.S. women," as Jeff Blair of The Globe and Mail opined.
[13:19] <Ottava> The US Men's hockey players all play for their home countries
[13:20] <Ottava> you'd think the US Women's hockey players would do the same

[16:42] <[Soap]> hi Chzz

[16:44] <ipatrol> We really could use some NPPs. There's a flood of spam, vanity articles, and sappy valentine's day love notes
[16:44] <Chzz_> Qcoder00 a) the warning notice looks fine to me - it's a polite request, and not pointy - and yes, adding descs will make things better.   b) If people disregard the notice, that's there choice, and I suggest you just disregard their disregard. Most ppl will fix the thing, some won't. A bit like a vandal-warning; in these cases, the best action would be (i) don't take it personal, (ii) ...
[16:45] <Qcoder00> Chzz_: I don't take people justly moaning about mistags personally
[16:45] <Qcoder00> but I do get upset when people moan at me for actually doing what templates and other people (inc admins) have advised...
[16:45] <Chzz_> (ii) fix the description yourself if you can, (iii) if you can't, feel free to politely propose it for deletion.   If you personally take offense at others taking offense when you (quite rightly) ask them nicely to add a desc etc, then I suggest you stop asking. All of us who post any kind of warning/caution notices have to anticipate some antagonism
[16:46] <Qcoder00> Chzz_: It wasn't the original uploader that was complaining anyway
[16:47] <Chzz_> Qcoder00 To summarise: you're doing good stuff, you're clearly trying to make things better. But if ppl won't cooperate, by far the best course of action is to ignore the bastards, and not let 'em grind you down. If you read too much into it, you'll drive yourself crazyt

[17:06] <Sceptre> HAARP has been blamed for everything from Columbine to the traffic lights on the Altrincham Ring Road

[17:07] <Qcoder00> Surely the traffic lights don't go wrong that often?
[17:07] <Chzz_> Ooh, I fucking hate the lights on Altrincham road. I always nip down the back past the cricket ground, and then go around that big block of flats before TGI's
[17:07] <Chzz_> I blame aliens
[17:07] <[Soap]> I thought I'd heard the ultimate from the blame-America crowd but this really takes the cake
[17:07] <Qcoder00> BTW A geek friend of mine at college got me really scared once
[17:07] <Qcoder00> He claimed he knew which three traffic junctions could 'crash' london
[17:08] <Sceptre> Qcoder00: which ones?
[17:08] <Sceptre> also, I feel really bad for Jews
[17:08] <Qcoder00> He said that he'd only disclose that information to TfL or MI5
[17:08] <Qcoder00> I think he was a maths student
[17:09] <Qcoder00> so would know something about graph theory
[17:09] <Sceptre> even after the Holocaust a lot of people in the west are rabidly anti-Semitic
[17:10] <Sceptre> I mean, fuck, I know Israel has done some bad stuff

[18:49] <TenPoundHammer> heh
[18:49] <TenPoundHammer> on the second thought, maybe I shouldn't bait ED. Doing so would result in them getting my last name.
[18:49] <TenPoundHammer> Which is a bad thing when you have a weird name like mine.
[18:49] <TenPoundHammer> There aren't that many Bobby Peacocks in the world.
[18:50] <OffToHades> mate, it can't be much more weird than a name most of your work colleagues can't pronounce without buggering up...
[18:51] <OffToHades> And I wouldn't say Bobby Peacock is an unusual or weird name.
[18:53] <MisterWiki> OffToHades: Remember the song I've requested you to remix?
[18:54] <OffToHades> yep
[18:54] <MisterWiki> There you can listen to it for the rythm.
[18:54] <MisterWiki> Or samples, or whatever ;)

[18:56] <Pickbothmanlol> yeah
[18:56] <TenPoundHammer> for what?
[18:56] <Pickbothmanlol> he got blocked for ten years via ANI
[18:57] <Killiondude> Not entirely true.
[18:57] <Pickbothmanlol> I forgot the reason.
[18:57] <Killiondude> Mostly for calling a jewish administrator a nazi.
[18:57] <MisterWiki> A jewish admin?
[18:57] <Killiondude> Yes.
[18:57] <MisterWiki> I generalized.
[18:57] <Pickbothmanlol> But the swastika is a symbol of peace.
[18:57] <Killiondude> The person who was trying to help you was Jewish.
[18:58] <MisterWiki> Someone took the words against himself.
[18:58] <Pickbothmanlol> Horray, I am in Simple's MediaWiki:Titleblacklist‎
[18:58] <MisterWiki> But I don't care now, I'm blocked and I can't do anything against it until may, I think.
[18:59] <MisterWiki> You are happy of being blocked?
[18:59] <OffToHades> it is entirely your own fault, MW.  People try and try and try till they're blue in the face to help you, and you *still* fuck it up.
[19:00] <OffToHades> I don't know why we fucking bother.

[19:00] <MisterWiki> I know it is my fault.
[19:00] <Pickbothmanlol> That was awesome.
[19:00] <Killiondude> Or fail.
[19:00] <MisterWiki> And I'm entirely embarrased about it.
[19:00] <MisterWiki> Not like Pickboth.

[21:22] <[Soap]> which it is

[21:23] <pakaran> he shows a fair bit of WP knowledge for a real newbie
[21:23] <pakaran> like his use of edit summaries

[21:29] <quanticle> [Soap]: Actually the Swastika was a Hindu symbol long before it was a Buddhist symbol.  If you go to India today, you'll still see swastikas all over the place.
[21:29] <[Soap]> I know
[21:29] <[Soap]> Im not dumb
[21:30] <[Soap]> but even people who've lived their whole lives in India and never met Westerners irl generally know of the other meaning of the symbol and that Westerners are often sensitive about it
