British India[edit]

Your input would be appreciated at Talk:British Raj#What to do about British India. Xn4 (talk) 22:24, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Please respond to User:RegentsPark's question in the section: Talk:British Raj#What to do about British India#POV-pushing or Vandalism? --Philip Baird Shearer (talk) 12:21, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
See Talk:British India#Proposal and British India/Article during the second half of 2008 --PBS (talk) 00:47, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
Although the history went back to 2002 the edits before 13 August 2008 were only alterations to redirects (and of no relevance as far a copyright were concerned). But the other article has been an article since its creation at 00:07 on 31 December 2005. As it was the larger of the two articles and had a longer history (as an article) it made sense to keep that history with the new merged article. --PBS (talk) 02:35, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
Many thanks for letting me know, Strawless. Impressed by your efforts, it's a very difficult scene. Xn4 (talk) 03:56, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Dublin Chancellors[edit]

Whatever you think - I tried to work out which it should be from the articles on the University of Dublin and Trinity College, Dublin, but the issue seems rather confused. I only plumped for the latter because the TCD article says "The role of Chancellor was also a College role". I also thought it more likely that the eighteenth century Chancellors, for example, would have been called "of TCD" rather than "of the U of D". Opera hat (talk) 13:25, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

You're right, many people find it confusing, even in Dublin, and you do see "Chancellor of Trinity College, Dublin" as well as "Chancellor of the University of Dublin", but I'm sure the second is the more correct, and I've just checked and found that it has about three times as many Google hits, too. So I'll move the list, as you don't mind and have left it to me. Strawless (talk) 13:31, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
I thought it was rather odd for there to be no article listing the Chancellors! Obviously I didn't look hard enough. :) Thanks for doing the merge etc. Opera hat (talk) 13:45, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Re: List of Trinity College Dublin people Science List[edit]

Sorry, I missed that previous one. It just seems the groupings then are a little muddled: some are by profession, some are by a general notability category. I may try re-arranging them, but my biog knowledge on most of them is a little skant Apollo Crua (talk) 11:00, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Toscaireacht[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Toscaireacht requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a club, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guidelines for people and for organizations.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Morbidthoughts (talk) 21:07, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for notifying me. I have started this new page on a red link from Saoi, which supported my thought that Toscaireacht was notable. Aosdána is not "a club", as suggested, but a learned body of Irish artists across all creative disciplines who have created a significant body of work, and it can be compared to the Royal Academy. If this page ought to be speedily deleted, then perhaps the same arguments may apply to Saoi, who are senior members of Aosdána, but that also seems to me to be a notable subject. Perhaps no separate article for Toscaireacht is needed, and in that case I would suggest a merge to Aosdána would be more constructive, with a redirect to Aosdána. Strawless (talk) 21:25, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
I agree - this ought to be merged with Aosdána. It does not seem notable in itself. --Rbreen (talk) 21:33, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
Well, I can't say I mind that, but as requested by Morbidthoughts I've added several "third-party references about Toscaireacht in the article to demonstrate its significance or importance", with the extra info they brought in. Shall I leave it for someone else to do the merge? Strawless (talk) 22:39, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
Please provide third-party references about Toscaireacht in the article to demonstrate its significance or importance to prevent it being deleted. Right now it's not clear how the Toscaireacht is important beyond that they are an administrative subgroup. Morbidthoughts (talk) 21:45, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, actually I had just started that. Strawless (talk) 21:47, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
I've merged it myself. I think you were right. Strawless (talk) 22:47, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Áed Ua Crimthainn[edit]

Nice work on Áed Ua Crimthainn. I was wondering if you were aware of the "Did you know..." feature which gives new articles a fleeting mention on the front page of Wikipedia? I'd think that Áed would be near enough to qualifying for this. There's more info at Wikipedia:Did you know#DYK rules and nominations are at Template talk:Did you know.

Diocese of Kilmore (Church of Ireland)[edit]

Yes I do remember your suggestion at Talk:Roman Catholic Diocese of Kilmore, and having thought about it, I have to agree with you. Its better to have the list of bishops in the diocese article. I'm wondering whether your suggestion could be extended for the current Church of Ireland bishops. None of them are particulary long and the list of those bishops could easily be merged to the diocese article. At present some them have seperate articles for dioceses and bishops. Other ones have the bishop redirected to the diocese article, and visa-versa. With the Roman Catholic articles they have the lists of bishops in the diocese article. The same could be done for the Church of Ireland dioceses/bishops. Scrivener-uki (talk) 08:52, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Speaking only for myself, I have become a little more torn in my views in the past few days, but I broadly agree with what you say for now. As I said at Talk:Roman Catholic Diocese of Kilmore, I think there's a case for a separate List of bishops of... page where the diocese page gets long. But here's another point which could favour that. It's important that the dioceses and hierarchy of the Church of Ireland are the successors of the pre-Reformation Catholic church in Ireland, just as with the Church of England and the Church in Wales in their own countries; or else, if you disagree, that they believe they are. This can make it a knotty problem how best to deal with the lists of bishops here at Wikipedia. All of the Anglican churches of the British Isles understandably (and in my view correctly) take their lists of bishops back to the pre-Reformation origins of a diocese, if it has pre-Reformation origins. However, some of our Wikipedia articles to do with the present-day Roman Catholic dioceses of Ireland claim the same pre-Reformation bishops in their own lists of bishops. In my recent edits to Bishop of Kildare, I integrated the two post-Reformation lists with the pre-Reformation list, up to the point where the dioceses (CoI and RC) were united with others, moving a post-Reformation Anglican list in from Diocese of Meath and Kildare. It may be that in the long run this will prove to be the least contentious approach to the mismatch of the perceptions of the two churches. If so, then having a separate list of Bishops (probably called List of bishops of... comes back as an option with more value than just the question of space on the page, but it may not be an option which will work in every case, as things can get so complicated in places. Kildare is a straightforward case.
Another editor who is very active on these Church of Ireland articles is Bashereyre, and his view may be different, so I'll copy this discussion so far to his talk page. Strawless (talk) 16:27, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Church of Ireland Bishops[edit]

I would have the list on the Bishop of .......... page, as most Dioceses sem to have merged along the way and there is less chance of ambiguity than in, say, England.Bashereyre (talk) 18:28, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Indeed, I guessed that was your view. If we wanted to raise this general question formally, I suppose Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Ireland is the best place, as using Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Anglicanism would more or less cut those of a more RC persuasion out of the loop, but the danger is that a consensus could develop at WikiProject Ireland of people with only a marginal interest in such pages. As the picture is so various, I think we had better go on as we are for now and discuss any suggested moves or mergers ad hoc as they arise, in the regular way.
May I ask, by the way, Bashereyre, are you happy with what I have done at Bishop of Kildare? Strawless (talk) 18:51, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Kilkenny Cathedral and St. Canice's Cathedral[edit]

Hi Strawless.Why did you create the new article on Kilkenny Cathedral when there was already an existing an article on the same building: St. Canice's Cathedral ?--Trounce (talk) 14:41, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

How strange. I started it from a "red link" in the template for Anglican cathedrals, so it seemed clear that it didn't exist. No harm done, we shall need to merge the two. Strawless (talk) 12:09, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
