  • and if you have NO Experience, but just want to come by and get involved, feel free to do so!!!

The Great Britain/Ireland DestubathonEdit

Hi. The Wikipedia:The Great Britain/Ireland Destubathon is planned for March 2020, a contest/editathon to eliminate as many stubs as possible from all 134 counties. Amazon vouchers/book prizes are planned for most articles destubbed from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland and Northern Ireland and whoever destubs articles from the most counties out of the 134. Sign up on page if interested in participating, hope this will prove to be good fun and productive, we have over 44,000 stubs! Even if "contests" aren't your thing, think of it as motivation to improve our content! Hope to see a lot of articles improved as part of this, there is a £50 prize for most England articles destubbed!♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:22, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

Template and project duplicationEdit

I observed that Category talk:Crime in Gloucestershire is tagged with the templates of both WikiProject England and WikiProject Gloucestershire. This seems a bit daft, as Gloucestershire is a county of - and a topical subset of - England.

Has the project ever considered inviting projects covering regions of or counties in England to become "workgroups" or sub-projects, and share your template, a route taken by WP:BIOGRAPHY; or by having your template indicate that a page is in the scope of another project like WP:BEATLES?


{{WikiProject Biography}}, a biography about a musician which is within the scope of the musician work-group:

{{WikiProject Biography|class=B | living = no | musician-work-group = yes }}

WikiProject Biography / Musicians (Rated B-class)
This page is within the scope of WikiProject Biography, a collaborative effort to create, develop and organize Wikipedia's articles about people. All interested editors are invited to join the project and contribute to the discussion. For instructions on how to use this banner, please refer to the documentation.
  B  This page does not require a rating on the project's quality scale.
This page is supported by WikiProject Musicians.

{{WikiProject The Beatles}}, an article about an album, no need to have a WP Albums template too:

{{WikiProject The Beatles|class=GA |importance= Top |album= yes |album-importance=Mid }}

WikiProject The Beatles (Rated GA-class, Top-importance)
This Beatles-related page is within the scope of WikiProject The Beatles, which focuses on improving coverage of English rock band The Beatles and related topics on Wikipedia. Users who are willing to participate in the project should visit the project page, where they can join and see a list of open tasks.
  GA  This page does not require a rating on the project's quality scale.
 Top  This page has been rated as Top-importance on the project's importance scale.
This page is within the scope of WikiProject Albums, an attempt to build a comprehensive and detailed guide to albums on Wikipedia.

Another option is that I might start a campaign to have Gloucestershire join Wales - we have plenty of sheep, and they have free prescriptions :) --kingboyk (talk) 02:58, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
