Requests for assistanceEdit

Newest requests at the top please.
  • Article I previously created on former Second Lady of the United States and South Carolina native Floride Calhoun may be of interest to this WikiProject. --TommyBoy (talk) 04:28, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Please review this information regarding the First European Settlement: San Miguel de Gualdape which might be misspelled > WikiProject Spain:Talk page [1] Spanish reference: Lucas Vázquez de Ayllón [2] Heosphoros (talk) 07:43, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

Tasks for completionEdit

  • South Carolina State Parks pages to need to be created. I have an infobox template that can help. Use Devils Fork State Park as an example. There is a category on that page of the list of South Carolina State Parks. Only 6 have been created, so we have a lot of work to do. Clemson3564 03:34, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
If you would like to help with this, see also: List of South Carolina state parks. MoodyGroove 18:22, 29 June 2007 (UTC)MoodyGroove
You can add a SC state park navbox to your article by putting {{South_Carolina_State_Park_Navbox}} at the bottom of your page. Be sure and edit the navbox page, inserting your new page into the proper region. - Jirt 18:41, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
All state parks pages have now been created. I didn't notice the Lee State Natural page at the time I created the Lee State Park page - it's now known on the official state park documents as Lee State Park so perhaps the Natural Area page should be redirected to the State Park page or vice versa? - Ultraviolet (talk) 01:35, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
