Immigration into LeedsEdit

An IP has commented at Talk:History of Leeds on the fact that immigration isn't mentioned, and with the rich culture of carnival, synagogues, Irish club, etc it does seem surprising that we don't seem to have anything about the centuries of immigration into Leeds. There are plenty of WP:RS though perhaps mostly print rather than online: looking at the Thoresby Society Index under "I" for Irish showed another publication about Italians in Leeds, just as a sample. I'm away from my Leeds bookshelf at the moment but I'm sure there's scope to add a section, or a new article, or a historical expansion to Demography of Leeds. (If, on the other hand, this information is already in the encyclopedia, then it needs more links to make it visible - nothing in the "Leeds" template suggests where to find it, and History of Leeds could use a short section with a {{main}} link.) PamD 09:20, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Couple of pages from Fraser's History of Modern Leeds for a start. PamD 09:34, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
@PamD: Leeds Museums had a placement person who created a draft of something similar https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Leeds_Immigration - their placement has stopped now, and I've not a had a chance to do anything with the draft, but if anyone wanted to use & change it that would fine!

Monthly collaboration suggestion: Lendal TowerEdit

I created the article on Lendal Tower about a year ago and think it has the potential to become a higher quality article than it is now (start-class). The sources I’ve already referenced contain a lot more information and if other editors read these they'll probably find things worth adding that I’ve missed (particularly to do with the architecture as I'm not great with the terminology and technical stuff), also they may be able to make improvements relating to grammar and Manual of Style guidelines. EdwardUK (talk) 00:49, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestion, I will use for May as I have already got the April ones selected. Though there does not appear to be much activity on some of the selected articles, may be the members are not active or are doing other things. Keith D (talk) 14:10, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

Notable People (Richmond, North Yorkshire)Edit

Hi there, coming out of retirement trying to tackle this article as it's my hometown, going to make an attempt to bring it up to at least a "C" class using the WP:UKGEO settlement guidelines, so I may ask for help on more than one occasion. Firstly, the list of notable people seems quite messy and exhaustive here when compared to somewhere larger like Northallerton? I'm not sure where the guidelines sit really, if they have a Wikipedia article of their own, do they warrant making it onto a list of people from the town, or do we select the most notable few? Your help and guidance would be much appreciated, take care all. Cacolantern 07:21, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Hi Cacolantern; given the size of the notable people, have you considered spinning it off into a separate list like List of people from Middlesbrough? If they are retained, then I would expect all to be cited as having that connection to Richmond. At least all have blue links, so their inclusion is warranted, but a list like this can be quite bloated. The crux, as you say, is who to include, as which is more notable, a rugby player over a headmaster? Regards. The joy of all things (talk) 08:20, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
I have added several ODNB cites. The joy of all things (talk) 09:12, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for the help The joy of all things, I may just do that, I think that's a sensible option, will probably get round to it after some other sections, thank you as well for the cites. Cacolantern 09:35, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
No worries; as it happens I have a couple of Richmond-style articles in the works, and I spent a good deal of last week improving Richmond Racecourse. The joy of all things (talk) 09:39, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
I would probably get the list in to shape here first and then spin off as one of the last operations on the page. There needs to be work on the ODNB references several have the link on the accessdate and several have no date information whatsoever. The last one also appears to be a dead DOI link. Keith D (talk) 13:11, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Keith D, Cacolantern - half way there! I have sorted the Born in Richmond section, will look at the next section tomorrow. Regards. The joy of all things (talk) 20:58, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
The joy of all things Thanks. Can you add the dates while you are doing this, needs the publication (modified) date and probably accessdate. Keith D (talk) 21:04, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Keith D The date and accessdate are no longer parameters of the Template:Cite ODNB. I did ask the custodian/admin/template guru who had effected the changes back in 2019 (I think), and their response as to why the url/date/accessdate parameters are not required is here. The joy of all things (talk) 05:57, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
The joy of all things The template has all the parameters of {{cite encyclopedia}}. There is nothing in the link to say that |date= is not required. I would say the date is required as the ODNB gets updated periodically and so may not support the text any more. Keith D (talk) 10:16, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
Keith D, okay, I have inputted all the dates into the cites that I appended yesterday. If accessdates are needed, then you will need to confirm this, please. I am going to take a look at the previous cites that have some dead doi links and update. Regards. The joy of all things (talk) 11:00, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Right, I think I have sorted it (dates and everything). There are a couple (like Hounsfield) who I cannot find reliable sources for, though. The joy of all things (talk) 14:39, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Many thanks for the work on this one. Keith D (talk) 17:38, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Richmond, North Yorkshire ReviewEdit

Hello again! I think I've got as far as I'm going to get in the meantime with the Richmond article, the history section has barely been touched by myself as I'm struggling to find any 20th century events, but if anyone else fancies a go then of course, go ahead! Notable people looks great, but I didn't want to do anything drastic like split it until we had a clear consensus! I'd appreciate an independent mind to review and re-classify the article now if that's okay? Hpefully it's climed out of "start" class. I will continue working on it when I gather more notable information and reliable sources.

Many thanks for the help. Cacolantern 16:43, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

It's comfortably a lot better than 'start' class! After mentioning the castle as a tourist attraction, it might be worth quantifying it by saying it brings c.40,000 visitors to the town every year.[1] For 20th century history, the Richmond Sixteen surely need a mention along with the castle's use as a prison. This podcast episode on the topic is worth a listen. Richard Nevell (talk) 17:49, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Leeds Town HallEdit

Hi Yorkshire folks

It would be appreciated if anyone with spare time could cast their eye over at Wikipedia:Peer review/Leeds Town Hall/archive1, where a PR is underway which will hopefully lead the way towards a successful FAC for Leeds Town Hall. Thanks, Rcsprinter123 (converse) 23:02, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

DewsburyEdit

Can members of WikiProject Yorkshire review the Dewsbury article and determine if they are happy with the state/change to criteria of the article in the Notable people section from people born in Dewsbury by Joe Roe. I am happy to go with consensus but am likely not prepared to remain watching the page for vandalism if I am simply going to get edit-warred out of it and somebody else can do that. Thankyou. Djm-leighpark (talk) 09:46, 11 June 2020 (UTC)

Bolton AbbeyEdit

I've never understood Bolton Abbey.

I only found out earlier this year/late last year that the ruins of the church was called Bolton Priory.

And today when visiting the page to find out what the post town of Bolton Abbey was (the answer is Skipton by the way), I noticed there was a separate stub article for Bolton Abbey (village).

Apparently Bolton Abbey (village) is smaller than Bolton Abbey the estate, but there doesn't seem to be anything explaining what the boundaries of either of them are, or any maps showing the boundaries of each.

Can Bolton Abbey be renamed to Bolton Abbey Estate?

And can some info and maps be added to each article explaining the boundaries?

Weekly clean-up listingEdit

Hello all; the Tuesday run of the cleanupworklistbot has generated an extra 62 articles this week with the tags of Harv and SFN no-target errors. I did see this sometime last year when a test was run to see what it was like and it threw up lots of issues. I think the problem lies when either some has written a cite starting with {{sfn|...|...|...}} and then not had a link in the ref section (such as at West Tanfield, where it displays the Patent Rolls with an SFN citation, but nothing in the sources or bibliography), or, when a source has more than one author and needs it ref parameter changed from |ref=harv}} to show |ref= {{harvid|author1 surname|author2 surname|year}} }}.

Is this correct, or am I just muddying the waters. Thanks and regards. PS - 26% of the articles linked to Yorkshire have some sort of problem that needs attention, if we muck in, we can sort a lot of them! Thanks. The joy of all things (talk) 18:38, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Probably the second one of multiple authors may be because the author parameter is set out wrong and not using |last= and |last2=. Another problem could be the year in the short form & long form do not match each other.
I saw somewhere that it was to be included in the report from this week so I expected them to show up. Keith D (talk) 20:43, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

To-do list for new articles?Edit

Hi,

I've recently got back into contributing to Wikipedia and I'm looking to help out with Sheffield-related articles as that's where my knowledge is.

Is there a to-do list of Sheffield/Yorkshire pages to be created? I was going to ask on the WikiProject Sheffield Talk page but that doesn't seem to be used any more (last post was 9 years ago!). I've been tidying up a few Sheffield articles up to now but keen to have my own 'project' as well :)

Thanks!

Palmeras2 (talk) 14:50, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Not specifically Sheffield but there are some in WP:WikiProject Yorkshire/to_do in the "Article requests" list. Depends on members adding them then they think an article is needed or they see a red-link in an article. Keith D (talk) 23:29, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Eyes on requestedEdit

For the last few weeks I have been trying to assist a determined Paid CoI who registered two days before a net 5,300 byte change (with a sizeable deletion of sourced prose) to an article based on a business, Manor Property Group.

At my request, a CoI declaration was made, confirming that the business had contracted Chelgate Local, a subsidiary of Chelgate to "to ensure the factual accuracy of its Wikipedia entry", "review the current entry, fact check and correct any factual errors", and "to add new content to create a comprehensive entry and include more up to date information on the organisation and its projects."

After considerable Talk discussion, this new editor has submitted a revised proposed change at Talk:Manor Property Group#Draft under two new subheadings. As I am the only contributor to Talk, I am requesting comments to form a consensus, and also to avoid any suggestions of WP:OWNership on my part. Until seeing this CoI contribution, I had only edited a caption, and this is my first experience of a paid contributor.

One aspect includes the development of a free App for Android and iOS; I have no experience of such software hence unable to conclude if this constitutes WP:SPAM.

Thank you.--Rocknrollmancer (talk) 21:56, 20 May 2021 (UTC)

WhitesnakeEdit

Hello, the Whitesnake article was tagged for the project some time ago and has recently been nominated for good article status. The article at one stage had references to Middlesbrough but there are no references to Yorkshire any more. Is there something missing from the article, as it now stands, or was the previous mentions of Middlesbrough incorrect? Anyone got any insight on this? Keith D (talk) 18:39, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

David Coverdale was/is from Saltburn and did early gigs on Teesside. That's it. It's as pointless as stating that Queen are from Zanzibar because Freddie Mercury was born and brought up there. I would expect the article on David Coverdale to be tagged for Yorkshire, but not the one about Whitesnake, who formed in London. Another example; three of the current members of Marillion are from Yorkshire: the Boro, Whitby and Donny, but they formed in Aylesbury, so again, I would not expect the Marillion article to have a Yorkshire tag. Obviously that's my opinion and it's not rooted in policy (I don't think it is at any rate). Regards. The joy of all things (talk) 21:21, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

Location mapsEdit

Please can somebody create location maps for Yorkshire and the historic ridings. I don’t know we’re to start never mind getting one to be in a module page, ready to be added to an article.

I think @Dr Greg: is the one I’ve seen as the creator for Cumberland and Westmorland maps. If You’re busy would you mind, I know they must take a lot of work. If not is there anybody else able to.

Sport is the main reason I’m asking. Chocolateediter (talk) 18:36, 30 August 2021 (UTC)

Newsletter suggestionEdit

I think the newsletter is helpful and a good reminder to keep up to date with things, but I find it can notably increase the size of my talk page. Instead of having just the Yes/No choice on it being delivered could there be an option to have the delivery of just a short message to announce when there is a new issue and with a link to the copy of it on the wikiproject. EdwardUK (talk) 22:40, 29 September 2021 (UTC)

I will try a short message with link to full news letter and see how it goes. Keith D (talk) 00:24, 1 October 2021 (UTC)
Thanks, I received the message and it was about a tenth of the size of the full version. Great work on coming up with a solution so quickly, if I'd kept my talk page a bit more organised I may have thought to ask about it a bit earlier. I've had a go of trying to create a version of the message that has been simplified down a little further:

The WikiProject Yorkshire Newsletter
Issue 162 - October 2021

The October 2021 issue of the Project Newsletter is now available.
As my understanding of how to put this together was mostly by trial and error there may be areas that could be improved on either technically or in terms of the appearance. It contains all the information from the original message (once the MediaWiki delivery notice has been added to the end) but I removed the top section to make it non-collapsible as I think this would no longer be necessary. As with the original message it is only the issue number and date that would need to be updated. EdwardUK (talk) 18:22, 1 October 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for suggestions. I will adjust for next month and may be put a note in the newsletter to advertise it, in case others want to receive this rather than the full version. Keith D (talk) 23:24, 1 October 2021 (UTC)

I also removed Joseph Priestley from Batley, twice, as he was born in Birstall but the same editor has removed the notice that said only people born in Batley should be added and re-added JP as he went to school there. I always assumed Wikipedia uses modern boundaries? Is Batley so devoid of history that the article needs to adopt people and places from the surrounding area? Any opinions from editors who do not profess to be from Batley? Esemgee (talk) 20:55, 27 October 2021 (UTC)

User script to detect unreliable sourcesEdit

I have (with the help of others) made a small user script to detect and highlight various links to unreliable sources and predatory journals. Some of you may already be familiar with it, given it is currently the 39th most imported script on Wikipedia. The idea is that it takes something like

  • John Smith "Article of things" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[https://www.deprecated.com/article Article of things]" ''Deprecated.com''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)

and turns it into something like

It will work on a variety of links, including those from {{cite web}}, {{cite journal}} and {{doi}}.

The script is mostly based on WP:RSPSOURCES, WP:NPPSG and WP:CITEWATCH and a good dose of common sense. I'm always expanding coverage and tweaking the script's logic, so general feedback and suggestions to expand coverage to other unreliable sources are always welcomed.

Do note that this is not a script to be mindlessly used, and several caveats apply. Details and instructions are available at User:Headbomb/unreliable. Questions, comments and requests can be made at User talk:Headbomb/unreliable.
