Main Photograph[edit]

I'm not happy with this picture at the top - it just doesn't say 'Scarborough' to me... I think we need the iconic view of the castle on the headland... Flarpster (talk) 23:32, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Views of Scarborough we have are in Commons:Category:Views of Scarborough, North Yorkshire. Other images would be in the parent category, but would be closer views of specific things in Scarborough. Care to select one? Keith D (talk) 00:40, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

My attention was drawn to the present list by the presence of a redlinked entertainer—not of the slightest interest to most of the English-speaking world. Then I noticed the names of other pop singers, radio and TV presenters and other quite minor personages who are separately and adequately linked to Scarborough by the relevant template created for the purpose.

Further, the details in the linked article do not need to be duplicated here in the form of a list of, movies, TV series, footballing achievements, etc. Furthermore, I question the arbitrary limitation of this section to those born in Scarborough, which has unconscionably excluded Alan Ayckbourn. Subject, of course, to normal consensus, my proposed edits will result in the following:

I've removed the following uncited content: The printing industry is well represented in the town. Pindar, which also owns the AlphaGraphics chain, is a Scarborough-born company with an international profile. My ground for this is the article Alphagraphics which refers to a bankrupt Pindar group, apparently based in Salt Lake City, Utah! Bjenks (talk) 05:10, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
