Walthamstow by-election, 1910[edit]

On Saturday I started writing what I thought would turn into a start-class article on the Walthamstow by-election, 1910 ... but it kinda grew, and has ended up at over 2600 words.

Would any other editors like to review it, and see if they can improve it? Apart from a lack of illustrations, the major failing I can see is that it relies very heavily on the archives of The Times newspaper, which was in general was openly biased towards the Conservatives (although its coverage of this election was largely neutral in tone). If anyone has access to the archives of the Manchester Guardian or Labour-supporting papers, that would help to provide fuller coverage on other perspectives. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 10:33, 3 September 2012‎ (UTC)

Wanted: Articles for sculptures, monuments and memorials in London[edit]

Following is a list of sculptures, monuments and memorials without Wikipedia articles. User:Ham and I have put this list together and we believe the links below reflect the most appropriate article titles based on naming conventions. I have been creating many articles for London artworks since my recent visit to the city, but I welcome other editors to please assist with the creation of these articles to help improve the encyclopedia.

All help welcome! ----Another Believer (Talk) 23:47, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

WP:VG comments subpages cleanup[edit]

Hi, there is currently a discussion taking place at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Video games#VG comments subpages regarding whether it would be acceptable to permanently shift all comments subpages associated with WP:VG articles into talk. This shift would follow the recommended approach given at WP:DCS. The WikiProject London articles that would be affected by this action are these:

If you have objections related specifically to WikiProject London's use of these subpages, please make this clear at the discussion so that other unrelated talk pages can be cleaned up where appropriate. Thank you. -Thibbs (talk) 15:56, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
