Geograph[edit]

Would there be any objection to me removing some of the geograph (faux-)citations from the article? Although they link to some great photographs, I think their links are a little cluttered. --Jza84 |  Talk  15:15, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

I would more than welcome that - it was something I was meaning to get round to. The Geograph links originate from User:Jeremy Bolwell. As a general point, as a local resident I am hoping to do further work on this article - I worked on it when a callow youth in my early days of WP involvement, and hope now to be able to get it to, if not FA standard, at least "good". But it will depend on me being able to set aside some time to spend in the local library, so I'm not setting a timetable for it! Ghmyrtle (talk) 15:38, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
I think I got most of them in this edit. This place seems quite interesting. It would be great to see this article evolve into a GA! I don't think it would be too difficult either. From memory there is only one Welsh place article that is GA, and none at FA which is disappointing, but not off-putting :) --Jza84 |  Talk  15:46, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, I have the motivation and a fair amount of local knowledge - hopefully I will find the time as well. Ghmyrtle (talk) 16:01, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
I'm sure you're aware of WP:UKCITIES, a resource I've helped to put together. I freely admit it's a little Anglocentric at the moment, but I think the layout and headings recommended shouldn't be a problem. If there are any issues, feel free to give me a nudge. :) --Jza84 |  Talk  16:04, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Indeed - I've made one or two comments on there myself. When I get round to writing, I'll welcome some advanced guidance on the technical details (referencing and so forth) and the process for getting articles appraised, at the very least. Ghmyrtle (talk) 18:35, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Distance From London[edit]

Seems to me to be irrelevent in the intro section of the Chepstow article. See similar debate on the Newport talk page Pwimageglow (talk) 14:47, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

It's irrelevant to me too, but there are a lot of UK people (at least, those in SE England) who can't think of any sort of geography except in terms of the London tube map. For this reason, I think it's worth keeping.
Our steampunk festival is in Chepstow next month. When we've described how to get to Chepstow it has often had to be in terms of maps like this: http://wyewaltz.org/wiki/Driving_from_London
Andy Dingley (talk) 15:25, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
This is an international encyclopædia. Readers from outside the UK will not necessarily know anything about UK geography. Distance from London is a valid and useful piece of information. Owain (talk) 08:35, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
I agree with Andy and Owain. Ghmyrtle (talk) 14:01, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
And I agree with Andy and Owain and Ghmyrtle. Even though Chepstow is not a city. Martinevans123 (talk) 10:36, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
