Dave[edit]

  • One of the many characters associated with this company was David Lamond (see also Goofy, DJ, and briefly, Dangerous Dave). Is this a joke or what? Is this info trustworthy? Also the article is a need of clean-up --85.165.75.132 14:53, 16 October 2005 (UTC)

Food[edit]

  • Re: link between the place and the baked good:
As for the assertion that the place is not linked to the foodstuff, what evidence do we have for this? I have read elsewhere that there may be a link between the two. Can anyone give any solid evidence for keeping this paragraph in? The difference in pronunciation doesn't seem to cut it as conclusive proof to my mind.Timwraight 18:24, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
  • -no response to to this, so I'll just go ahead and remove the offending sentences.Timwraight 13:58, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Info[edit]

  • How about some civic and demographic information appropriate to an article about a town? And a photo or two? Cranston Lamont 04:48, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
  • There is an article with some, though not a lot, of that kind of info at Scone. Calgacus (ΚΑΛΓΑΚΟΣ) 12:36, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

It is completely wrong and factually incorrect to say "...and Scottish kings continued to be crowned there until the end of the Scottish kingdom." The Scottish kingdom, one of the oldest in the world, is still very much in existence with Queen Elizabeth as its head. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wee Man 68 (talkcontribs) 00:18, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Query about map[edit]

Map of Scotland showing location of Scone actually shows location (approximately) of Fort Augustus. Scone is some 70 miles to the south east of the position shown. Map needs to be altered! Jorvik29 17:20, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

I deleted the infobox until the map gets fixed. Deacon of Pndapetzim (Talk) 17:36, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Scone (bread) is at least as notable as the village of 4000 inhabitants. — AjaxSmack 02:13, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

  • Support. The most sensible thing would be Scone (bread)Scone: the bread is the primary usage. Then, a hatnote on Scone for the disambig page and also for the Scottish village. 128.232.1.193 (talk) 17:38, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
    • Given the number of other uses, I don't know if there is a primary use here. For me, it is only the pastry. Vegaswikian (talk) 18:47, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Support quite obvious suggestion. Vegaswikian (talk) 18:56, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Move bread to primary, move Scone to Scone, Scotland, create redirects from Old Scone and New Scone to Scone, Scotland 70.51.11.219 (talk) 05:28, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Strong Oppose I mean ... Scone (village) ... seriously? Scone, Scotland ... maybe. The best I'd say is that both the historic town and the bread should be dabbed, but in practice settlement names take precedence ... or ought to when they don't. Deacon of Pndapetzim (Talk) 03:22, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Support page Scone as the disambig page: in my experience people sey or write "scone" to mean the baked item much more than to mean the village or town. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 05:48, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
