Scottish National Party[edit]

I'm in a dispute at the Scottish National Party leadership election, 2014, concerning Nicola Sturgeon's previous position in the party. Was she the deputy leader or depute leader of the party? GoodDay (talk) 20:33, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Nevermind, I've checked the SNP official website. I thought Depute was a spelling error. GoodDay (talk) 20:50, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Rochester and Strood by-election, 2014[edit]

The Rochester and Strood by-election, 2014 article is currently assigned "low importance" for this WP. May I respectfully suggest that is should be at least mid importance. In the fullness of time, it may even be of high importance. Mjroots (talk) 21:12, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

OT: Out of curiosity, what (across Wikipedia as a whole) does the importance assessment achieve? The only value I have ever been able to see in it is its ability to generate argument; which is a great spectator sport but not overly constructive. ;-) Bagunceiro (talk) 12:32, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

ongoing AFDs on UK political parties[edit]

There are about 14 simultaneous AFDs about UK political parties going on:

  • For this one the list-item notability of the Patriotic Socialist Party has been disputed, with deletion of its entry in the List of UK political parties by this edit.
You may consider participating. --doncram 20:03, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Candidates listed on YourNextMP[edit]

Your Next MP is also crowd-sourcing who is standing at the 2015 General Election, and has a good set of data. License of the data is cc-by-sa, so we could re-use it on Wikipedia. I wrote a page comparing candidates listed on Wikipedia and those listed on YNMP. So far it's mostly been useful for fixing spelling errors in candidate names and at some point, I might try getting it to generate {{election box candidate}} to copy-paste onto pages. --h2g2bob (talk) 01:35, 12 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.
