  • Expand any information on North Carolina military history. All mentions of it seem to disappear after the descriptions of forts and the new submarine. I'd like to see something deeper.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:57, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Clean up & expand Roman Catholic Diocese of Charlotte, the article is very poorly put together, and I think it needs to be rewritten. --Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 19:08, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
    • I cleaned it up a bit and added some citations; I also rewrote several portions and made a new section for traditional Masses, since someone seems to have been really interested in that for this particular diocese? I'll look into expanding it-- we're digitizing some materials from the Charlotte Diocese here at Duke soon, so hopefully we'll have some good materials. Check us out: Edebold (talk) 19:03, 20 September 2013 (UTC) --
  • I have at least 100 images of the inside of the USS North Carolina from a few years ago when we visited, but we don't seem to be shy of those. Ping me on my talk page if you need any of those. Dennis Brown - © Join WER 17:25, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Article on U.S. Secretary of Transportation and former Charlotte, North Carolina Mayor Anthony Foxx may be of interest to this WikiProject. --TommyBoy (talk) 05:59, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Article I previously created on the North Carolina Correctional Institution for Women may be of interest to this WikiProject. --TommyBoy (talk) 22:56, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Article on former North Carolina Secretary of Commerce Keith Crisco may be of interest to this WikiProject. --TommyBoy (talk) 23:59, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
