Rated Stub-class[edit]

What is there is reasonably well-written, but the article needs to be expanded. Most obviously, his assignment as Mary Queen of Scots's keeper is currently given a single sentence — despite the fact that this is one of the things he is most remembered for.  — AnnaKucsma   (Talk to me!) 17:44, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

EL[edit]

I have removed the external link to genealogics. Under WP:ELNO #12: "Mirrors and forks of Wikipedia should not be linked." --Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:20, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

And it has been restored. I have removed it again. If the website copies from us (as suggested by the conversation here and the link from it), it is a "fork", taking content from Wikipedia and developing it further. Forks may not be used as source or external links. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 11:40, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Your presumption, which you made without any discussion, is wrong. Genealogics is not a fork, nor it is a copy of WP. The contents of genealogics are created from scratch for the most part. The fact that a few pages, may copy material here, does not make a site a fork. Do not remove this link, without discussion.Wjhonson (talk) 00:30, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

It has been discussed. According to you, the very page to which this is linking has copied our content. That is flatly inappropriate under our policies, but I will invite additional review. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 00:33, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

You are presuming that because they copied the bio, that the page itself is a copy. That is false. The page at genealogics which includes the bio, is not a copy. It is a page of details, which also includes the bio. The bio portion of the page, that section of that page, is a copy. The page is not. Is that clear now?Wjhonson (talk) 00:54, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

I have, as I said, invited additional review at WP:ELN. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 01:18, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
One would think that such links where there is a little uncertainly may be more appropriate for the talk page, and it may be useful to build those links here, rather than on the article page. billinghurst sDrewth 23:56, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
