Harley Street of the North[edit]

I whizzed through quite a few articles on Liverpool streets earlier today, adding links for the Paradise St article, Like that one, I was astonished at how poor a lot of the content was but I was only skimming stuff. Perhaps there is nothing more to say but in this article, among other issues, it made an unsourced claim that Rodney St is known as the Harley Street of the North. It may well be but I removed it because (a) it was not sourced and (b) who knows it as that? In my edit summary I noted that John Street in Manchester has a similar set-up of posh private consulting rooms in Georgian era houses and I know some people have referred to it as being akin to Harley Street, so the chances are that the Rodney Street version is a local term, not something disseminated more widely.

I really don't care - I live in both cities, as well as somewhere else - except from the perspective of our policies and guidelines. In this case, WP:V and WP:NPOV would seem to apply. There are plenty of ways to phrase things to avoid NPOV issues but first we need to see what the sources say. And I do mean sources, not source. - Sitush (talk) 15:54, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Lists and prose[edit]

We prefer prose to lists. Those people who are mentioned in the section on buildings - Chambre, Gladstone etc - should not also be in the list. It isn't as if this is a massive, complex article, so the reader should not need to be reminded. - Sitush (talk) 18:39, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Over 60 Grade II listed buildings?[edit]

There are a lot of listed buildings, not all of which are what the ordinary person would call a building, eg: the Mackenzie Monument, but try as I might I cannot get to the 60+ figure. I think the solution may to be, er, list them. Since UK listed buildings are inherently notable, they all should or could have standalone articles. - Sitush (talk) 03:30, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

Do not use Good News Liverpool[edit]

Please do not use the Good News Liverpool website as a source in this article. For example, their article of 2016 is pretty much a copy of how ours looked in 2015, together with various linked bio articles. I suspect GNL is not reliable for anything but certainly in this case it is a mirror. - Sitush (talk) 03:48, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
