The Rock[edit]

The usage of The Rock (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) is under discussion, see RfD for the discussion. It is suggested that it be repointed. -- 65.94.169.222 (talk) 06:37, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Spelling error in image[edit]

I note that "Confederation" is spelled incorrectly in the image File:Newfoundland Second Referendum 1948.png (right-hand side, about half-way down the article), but I can't seem to edit it. Can somebody please help? -- PKT(alk) 15:18, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

@PKT: Contact user Nickjbor, the author of the image, and ask that they make the change. Can't edit text in a PNG file. Dwpaul Talk 16:08, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
I'll update the entire image with a better version shortly (hours if I'm not busy, weeks if I am) Nickjbor (talk) 18:12, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Newfoundland and Labrador. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Irish gaelic[edit]

Re the adding of the Irish gaelic phrase for NL in the lede: Irish gaelic, sad though that may be, is not a living language in the Province today, and the former speakers of that language wouldn't surely have used the term 'Newfoundland and Labrador'. The addition of some discussion of the loss of the language, however, might well be useful. Scots gaelic was also of course spoken in Newfoundland. More significantly there are other living languages today in the Province.

Timezone[edit]

I think an explanation of how Newfoundland came to have a half-hour offset timezone would be interesting and appropriate.
