Be bold - if you know something about Cornwall then put it in! We value your contributions and don't be afraid if your spelling isn't great as there are plenty of spelling and grammar experts on clean-up duty!
Articles on settlements in Cornwall should be written using the standard set of headings approved by the UK geography WikiProject's guideline How to write about settlements.
At WikiProject Cornwall we subscribe to the policies laid down by Wikipedia - particularly civility and consensus building. We are aware that the wording on Cornish entries can sometimes be a contentious topic, especially those concerning geography. You don't have to agree with everything but there is no excuse for rudeness and these things are best solved through consensus building and compromise. For more information see WP:CornwallGuideline.
These pages are not platforms for political discussion. Issues relating to Cornish politics should be restricted to those pages that directly deal with these issues (such as Constitutional status of Cornwall, Cornish nationalism, etc) and should not overflow into other articles.
Most of all have fun editing - that's the reason we all do this, right?!

If one wants to add flags, there should be an explanation of the reason why they are there. We could also add maps, list capitals, etc. There is no relevance to simply plonking a list of flags in the middle of an article with no mention fore or aft as to their significance. If one feels that there should be a representation in flags of the Celtic countries, then there could be a link to another article for futher clarification on what are Celtic countries.

There needs to be some kind of definition as to what the Celtic Congress considers a "Celtic" nation to be. Is it a country in which a Celtic language is spoken? There's also the inconsistancy that Cornwall is included (rather than all of England being included due to Cornwall) while all of Scotland is included due (presumably) to Gaelic, which is not spoken over the whole country. The Lowlands and Northern Isles are Scots and English speaking (Or Scots, Shetlandic, Orcadian and English speaking) and are thus linguistically Germanic, not Celtic. The same reasoning could be extended to Ireland, where even the official Gaeltacht is very small. - Donnchadh mac Alasdair. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 15:04, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Cornwall is included as it is the titular region for the language known as Cornish. All of Cornwall once spoke Cornish, but not all of England, therefore not all of England is included. All of Scotland, with the exception of Orkney (possibly Gaelic speaking at some point) and Shetland (definitely not Gaelic speaking at any point) was once Gaelic speaking. As well as this Orkney and Shetland were legally integrated into Scotland without any current legal barriers. This is not the case with Cornwall. Currently Cornwall is considered a traditional county of England, however its status is disputed. Many within the Cornish Celtic movement regard Cornwall as being subject to "illegal" occupation by the English, and they regard the Duke of Cornwall as their Head of State and not the Queen. From a Celtic Congress point of view, Cornwall's status is no different from the status afforded Wales in the early part of the 20th century - i.e. a piece of Britain occupied by England but with just as much right to its own special status similar to Wales. Obviously other viewpoints differ, but for the purposes of the Celtic Congress, Cornwall has its own titular Celtic language, its own flag, its own separate legal status (currently in question), etc. etc. --MacTire02 (talk) 14:00, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
