Segovia[edit]

Segovia is an unbelievably badly written article for such an important city. I've been rewriting some if it, but if anyone else wants to help it'd be appreciated.  Liam987(talk) 16:56, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Spanish conquest of the Maya Good Topic nom[edit]

Hi all,

I have recently nominated Spanish conquest of the Maya for Good Topic, and would welcome any reviews or comments. Many thanks, Simon Burchell (talk) 11:05, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Spanish Civil War GAR[edit]

Spanish Civil War, an article that you or your project may be interested in, has been nominated for a community good article reassessment. If you are interested in the discussion, please participate by adding your comments to the reassessment page. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, the good article status may be removed from the article. Anotherclown (talk) 07:32, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Spanish Civil War, the subject of this article is important - the Spanish Civil War - a subject which has been researched by a wide range of academics of varying nationalities. Bonafide copy editors, with the best of intentions, have attempted to extend the article in order to give it a similar length to the very well writen good article in Spanish Wiki. Unfortunately as a result of maintaining the unusually narrow range of sources, the English article now appears as though it is the paraphrasing of one main source, Thomas, whose book was written in 1960, though re-published more recently. I cannot see that a topic of such importance can have good article status when it relies to such an extent on one source which is out of date. I previously recommended that this article be updated so it can reflect a similarly broad range of sources as the Spanish wiki article and it was listed for GOCE where editing was attempted but the editor concluded that the range of sources was too narrow. Translation from Spanish to English had also been suggested and a notice has been posted on the Spanish article last year. It would be good to have the views of editors involved in this project page, which I was not aware of previously. Isthisuseful (talk) 11:36, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

LGV Perpignan–Figueres[edit]

I think article LGV Perpignan–Figueres needs updating, because I saw that trains are now running from Paris to Barcelona instead of to just Figueres. So presumably the railway is now from Perpignan to (close to?) Barcelona. Marcocapelle (talk) 20:37, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I travelled on this line direct to Barcelona in April 2014. Travellers are recommended not to use the old rail route where you can get stranded for hours at the rundown frontier towns of Cerbère or Portbou: Noyster (talk), 11:20, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Miquel/Miguel[edit]

Is it normal practice in Spain to change the Catalan spelling "Miquel" to "Miguel" when writing in Spanish? Currently I am using the spelling "Miguel" for the musician/chess player Miguel Farré Mallofré, because that's the spelling I've usually seen in chess literature. I have redirects from Miquel Farré i Mallofré and Miquel Farré Mallofré, but one of these could be moved to the main article title if there is a consensus.

Pictures needed[edit]

2239 Spanish municipalities do not have any photograph on Commons. Not a single one, good or bad, old or new. That means that more than a quarter of them cannot be seen in Wikimedia. And that's a lot. So we are trying to get pictures of them. If you happen to have any, please upload them. We'll be grateful. A complete list of all Spanish municipalities without pictures can be found here. You can see we are already working on it but help is badly needed. Thank you! B25es (talk) 10:26, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
