Assessments sectionEdit

Does "See also Wikipedia:WikiProject Lancashire and Cumbria/Assessment" have any significance in Section 10, Assessments?

Cross EndEdit

Can anyone with local knowledge please help with a discussion at Talk:Cross End - it's not clear what Cross End is - hamlet? suburb of another village? - or indeed if it merits coverage in Wikipedia. --94.197.68.15 (talk) 20:11, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Sankey CollectionEdit

Hi, I have a draft article on the Sankey collection which I am struggling to get accepted. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:The_Sankey_Family_Photography_Collection It is relevant here because there are a large number of postcards relating to Barrow and Blackpool in the collection. Any help in getting the article accepted would be appreciated. Peterrivington (talk) 19:49, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

I've read the article and it looks a good one. How can I help get it accepted? (I have no idea what the procedure entails.) OrewaTel (talk) 02:08, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
Peterrivington I had a quick look and as far as I can see this is just an issue of referencing the content. The information in a Wikipedia article needs to be verifiable in reliable sources. I can see that when the reviewer removed the un-sourced content, to create a version that could pass AfC, you reverted it as vandalism. The only source it has which is both reliable and available online is the BBC article added more recently. Victorian Lakeland Photographers and Picture Postcard Annual 1993 will be RS, but I'm not going to be buying copies. signalfilmandmedia.com probably doesn't qualify as reliable by our standards, but will be OK for light use. You have large sections of prose without any references. All of the content needs citations so that other users can understand were the information came from. See WP:CQR for help.TiB chat 16:50, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Mill townEdit

There's a large unsourced ill-defined list of English mill towns in this article - members of this project might like to join a discussion at Talk:Mill town. PamD 15:52, 6 October 2021 (UTC)

Parishes projectEdit

I have started a project for missing civil parishes at User:Crouch, Swale/Missing parishes. The missing parishes in Cumbria are:

And these exists as a redirect only but should have separate articles:

A total of 8, see User:Crouch, Swale/Missing parishes (1)#Cumbria

The missing parishes in Lancashire which are only redirects but should be articles are:

A total of 10, see User:Crouch, Swale/Missing parishes (2)#Lancashire. Crouch, Swale (talk) 16:58, 28 October 2021 (UTC)
