Untitled[edit]

Okay, what's the problem? Zvesoulis put a {{cleanup}} tag on the article, but I've read the thing through several times and don't see a problem warranting the tag. Moreover, this is the very first entry in the talk page which strikes me as meaning we have a ways to go before we start throwing tags around. I removed the tag and made a couple of other edits. If anyone has any thoughts on what needs to be cleaned up please say something here and/or let me know. Thanks. Duckecho (Talk) 7 July 2005 19:52 (UTC)

The history section states that the castle was first built in 1068 and that it was built during Edward the Confessor's reign. Which is correct?

Ghosts[edit]

What about the 4 ghosts living in the castle? there should be some reference —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.17.252.156 (talk) 00:33, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

The following suggestions were generated by a semi-automatic javascript program, and might not be applicable for the article in question.

  • Yes check.svg Done Per Wikipedia:Context and Wikipedia:Manual of Style (dates), months and days of the week generally should not be linked. Years, decades, and centuries can be linked if they provide context for the article.[?]
  • X mark.svg Not done Per Wikipedia:What is a featured article?, Images should have concise captions.[?]
  • NA You may wish to consider adding an appropriate infobox for this article, if one exists relating to the topic of the article. [?] (Note that there might not be an applicable infobox; remember that these suggestions are not generated manually)
  • Yes check.svg Done As per Wikipedia:Manual of Style (dates), dates shouldn't use th; for example, instead of (if such appeared in the article) using January 30th was a great day, use January 30 was a great day.[?]
  • Yes check.svg Done Per Wikipedia:Manual of Style (headings), headings generally do not start with articles ('the', 'a(n)'). For example, if there was a section called ==The Biography==, it should be changed to ==Biography==.[?]
  • X mark.svg Not done Watch for redundancies that make the article too wordy instead of being crisp and concise. (You may wish to try Tony1's redundancy exercises.)
    • Vague terms of size often are unnecessary and redundant - “some”, “a variety/number/majority of”, “several”, “a few”, “many”, “any”, and “all”. For example, “All pigs are pink, so we thought of a number of ways to turn them green.”
    • “In the year [of] 1138”
