New logo?[edit]

The RSC has recently changed its logo - worth updating the infobox picture?

RSC Gold[edit]

Because I need to redirect RSC Gold here (see next section), I've added a sentence, "Subscriptions to the journals are available individually, or "all-in", under a provision called "RSC Gold". I mention this as I'm Wikimedian in Residence at the RSC, so have a potential CoI. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 14:13, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Free 'RSC Gold' accounts[edit]

I am pleased to announce, as Wikimedian in Residence at the RSC, the donation of 100 "RSC Gold" accounts, for use by Wikipedia editors wishing to use RSC journal content to expand articles on chemistry-related topics. Please visit Wikipedia:RSC Gold for details, to check your eligibility, and to request an account. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 14:14, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Merge of List of blue plaques erected by the Royal Society of Chemistry[edit]

Recently tagged for merge, but no discussion started, or reason given.

  • oppose No reason given to merge. Against the merge, there is the view that a list of these (numerous, should anyone care to enumerate them) plaques makes a reasonable scope for a list. It's also way WP:UNDUE to place the list within the overall society article.
I'm concerned that the merge was perhaps put forward on the basis of a far too short look at the content of the list article and an assumption that the current short article was all that the list could ever be.
There was a time when WP was a collaborative project. One editor started something, because they recognised a good subject, another, with access to the source material, was encouraged to expand it. Unfortunately this is no longer how it operates. WP is no a playpen for editors to find things to do and to scorecard how many speedy deletions, user blocks or merges they've managed to action. Playing at bureaucrats has become a game, there is no longer any interest in content. Andy Dingley (talk) 10:58, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

I've removed the tags. I have the list of RSC plaques in a spreadsheet, and there are far too many for merging into this article. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:41, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
