Where is Peterborough?[edit]

This Cambridgeshire article? Won't that annoy those who think Peterborough should really be in Northants? PaulHammond 11:16, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

It does! :) There was a discussion a while back about geo stubs and at one point I think there was a suggestion to use the Government Office regions rather than ceremonial counties. In the cases where there is dispute I think it would be wise to use a template such as Template:England-geo-stub, which is what I am about to do here. Owain 14:33, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

GA Failed[edit]

This article is nowhere near GA status. First, there is quite a lack of coverage. Demographics? Cities, towns, villages, etc. within? Economic role? Natural features? And so on. Second, the article does not adhere to WP:LAYOUT, WP:LEAD, and possibly other areas in the Manual of Style. Third, while reasonable references exist at the bottom, there are almost no inline citations within the body of the text. This article ought to have had multiple "citation needed" tags and, hence, not been brought for review. This article needs a complete rewrite/rework especially with regards to the Quarter Sessions section which needs an explanation of what a quarter session is among other things. Also, is the Coat of Arms picture really the creator's own work?! Surely that copyright tag is wrong and should be something (I'm not sure what applies to heraldry images...) else. That's all I can think of at the moment, there is more perhaps. --Meowist 18:52, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

There is nothing wrong with the tag on the coat of arms image: I drew it with Coreldraw myself. Lozleader 21:12, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
Oh, my bad. In that case, it's pretty well done.--Meowist 06:06, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Franchise fraction[edit]

< By 1835 this had risen to 576, or about one per cent of the population.[23] >

This can't be right - the population would only have been a few thousand - 10% makes more sense! 86.181.117.134 (talk) 03:32, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
