Machine learning bar

As the WikiProject with probably the most articles transcluding this template, does anyone here have a view on the possible conversion of Template:Machine learning bar to a footer template? This sidebar has annoyed me for some time but the last comment on the template talk page (also expressing the same opinion) is two years old. Since this affects quite a lot of articles I'm hoping for at least some clue that this change wouldn't go against a contrary consensus before going ahead...

I don't know the difference between sidebar and footer. For example Economics has both. But it seems fine as is. Wqwt (talk) 03:30, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Likelihood function

There has been some discussion about the lead of the article Likelihood function. The discussion is at Talk:Likelihood_function#Wording_of_lead. Any recommendations on this would be much welcomed and appreciated. IAmAnEditor (talk) 23:44, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

Census (and Agricultural Censuses) Template?

I'm an Agricultural Economics student looking to improve some of the representations of Agricultural Censuses on Wikipedia.

I was wondering if there was a template which should be followed for these, and Censuses more generally in how they're represented. While this topic in specific is unlikely to merit pages for the individual census years, as is the case with larger censuses of population, I still don't've an idea as to whether or not I'm including enough information in the few edits I have done so far.

As one can see in my edits to Canadian Census of Agriculture, United States Census of Agriculture and Farm Structure Survey (which isn't quite a census technically, but is the methodological basis for the European Census of Agriculture), I'm more or less thinking that a breakdown by Introduction, Overview, History, Methodology, Data Collected, and Use / Publication sections is appropiate - with specific references to Data Collected being of interest, moreso than with a census of population, as it may not be immediately something which the public may understand (the scope of an agricultural census is often differently broader than common expectations).

Does anyone have thoughts on whether this approach is correct? Suggestions of what might want to be incorporated? Or if there is aspects of more general census framing on Wikipedia that I am missing and should incorporate?

Thanks for your responses, Wcconey (talk) 13:31, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Add references as task

I've noticed a pervasive problem in Wikipedia math articles, including in statistics, is that many pages are largely unsourced and possibly original research. I think adding references should be added in Article-related tasks. Wqwt (talk) 05:21, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
