Request for information on WP1.0 web tool
Hello and greetings from the maintainers of the WP 1.0 Bot! As you may or may not know, we are currently involved in an overhaul of the bot, in order to make it more modern and maintainable. As part of this process, we will be rewriting the web tool that is part of the project. You might have noticed this tool if you click through the links on the project assessment summary tables.
We'd like to collect information on how the current tool is used by....you! How do you yourself and the other maintainers of your project use the web tool? Which of its features do you need? How frequently do you use these features? And what features is the tool missing that would be useful to you? We have collected all of these questions at this Google form where you can leave your response. Walkerma (talk) 04:24, 27 October 2019 (UTC)
I just spotted this announcement on Angus Mclennan's TalkPage that he sadly passed away on Friday morning. I'm sure we all appreciate the enormous contributions he made to Wikipedia over the years and wish to convey our condolences to his friends and loved ones. A sad loss indeed. --Cactus.man ✍ 20:29, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
Greetings! I have recently relisted a requested move discussion at Anglo-Scottish border, regarding a page relating to this WikiProject. Discussion and opinions are invited. Thanks, Cwmhiraeth (talk) 12:06, 28 November 2019 (UTC)
Highlands and Islands Locality Infobox suggested (with Language information)
First of all, I am not and have never been Scottish, let's just first get it out (and I am not even entirely sure I have any at all in the blood)... anyway, I have been having a bit of bother at Talk:United Kingdom, but that is albeit (somewhat) related, but 'not the point'... my point here is, I would think that perhaps a separate Infobox ought to be created for (certain) Scottish localities like they have with concerning places in Finland, because certain places in Scotland, namely many of the islands of the Outer and Inner Herbies and the nearby immediate coastal areas of the Scottish Highlands, are (for the moment at least anyway) either Gaelic-speaking or bilingual, as I understand it, and the (Scottish) Gaelic language is either official or co-official in many of these places. Wouldn't really be that politically controversial either as it is (unfortunately) the case across 'a certain' Sea, I don't think. What do you Scottish editors think about this? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:50, 4 December 2019 (UTC)
Margaret, Maid of Norway
Various IPs and a new user have been making the same edit to the lede of Scoti, which involves removing cited text. They have finally engaged at talk but have continued with the edits. Edits by the same editor/s appear to have, at the least, a point to prove, which makes me wonder whether the edit at Scoti is dubious or undue. Do others with more knowledge of the factual aspects have a view? Mutt Lunker (talk) 16:11, 12 January 2020 (UTC)
Geographic question: "Kenilworth, Scotland"?
I'm trying to track down the birth place of actress Kitty Loftus (Q82601043): Some sources state her birth place as "Kenilworth, Scotland" (e.g. encyclopedia.com), while others simply state "Kenilworth" (Who's Who in the Theatre), which might imply the town in Warwickshire, England. At least one other source states her birth place as "Whitecliffe, Gloucs." Loftus is sometimes described as an "English actress". Can anyone confirm that there is (or was) a place called "Kenilworth, Scotland" (or for that matter, "Whitecliffe, Gloucestershire")? Thanks, --Animalparty! (talk) 20:34, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
- If there is a settlement in Scotland called Kenilworth, the Ordnance Survey 1:50 000 doesn't list it. Perhaps she was born above the Kenilworth pub in Rose Street in Edinburgh? Mutt Lunker (talk) 10:29, 19 January 2020 (UTC)
