George Buck[edit]

Hello! I've been working on this article about the British historian George Buck, who wrote the first history defending King Richard III, among other things. Should it get the History project banner? Does it need more history-related cats? Thanks for any assistance. -- Ssilvers (talk) 15:37, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

On May 7th of this year we will observe the 100th anniversary of one of the most consequential events in maritime history. May I suggest a full court press to get this article up to FA status in time for the anniversary? -Ad Orientem (talk) 04:41, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Interpreting the Domesday Book[edit]

Hello historians.
I'm adding information from Domesday Book-related sources to various settlement articles, but they're not always easy to interpret. Can anyone give me some advice? PaleCloudedWhite (talk) 08:19, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
