Welcome! Fàilte! Walcome! This is a notice board for Scottish Wikipedians, Wikipedians living in Scotland, and anyone else interested in Scotland-related topics. This page serves as a reference point for matters related to Scotland, Scottish people or things, or of interest for Scottish editors.

This page is no longer updated regularly, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject Scotland for more up-to-date information, and raise any new discussions at Wikipedia Talk:WikiProject Scotland.

Announcements[edit]

This page is no longer used for general announcements. Please raise any issues at Wikipedia Talk:WikiProject Scotland.

Articles requiring attention from editors can be included in Category:Scotland articles needing attention.

Pages listed on Articles for deletion should be listed at WikiProject Deletion sorting/Scotland.

New stuff[edit]

Please note that none of our subpages make any claim to being remotely comprehensive: they are not, because it would be far too time-consuming and we are not aware of any method to automatically capture new Scotland-related material as it is created. But they can be used as a resource by interested editors, so you may want to visit them and click the Watch tab.

Old stuff[edit]

Requested articles[edit]

See the full list at the sub-page: Scottish Wikipedians' notice board/Requested articles.

Requested images[edit]

Media related to Scotland at Wikimedia Commons

See Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Scotland. To add an article to this category add {{reqphotoin|Scotland}} to the Talk page.

Preferably upload new images to Wikimedia Commons Category:Scotland, so that every language edition of Wikipedia can simply access the image. The image links for Wikimedia Commons images are identical to the standard code.

Requests for expansion[edit]

See Category:Scotland stubs for short articles which require expansion.

Scotland-related stub templates[edit]

Consider tagging short Scotland-related articles, with a designated stub tag. For general Scotland stubs, write this {{Scotland-stub}} at the bottom of the article. (All such articles are listed in Category:Scotland stubs). There are a number of subcategories, including {{Scotland-bio-stub}} for biographies and {{Scotland-struct-stub}} for buildings. All subcategories are listed on the Category:Scotland stubs page

Requests for Article attention/review/comment/cleanup[edit]
