Talk:Todmorden Unitarian Church

listed on British Unitarian website[edit]

I added this sentence:

The church is still listed as a member of the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches, the umbrella organisation for British Unitarians.

and a fact tag was added. I thought I'd worded it in a self-explanatory manner: the GA lists the Todmorden church. The GA's site has a congregation finder, and Tod is one of the ones on the list: [1]. Would it be preferable to have this as a reference, or just reword the sentence?

Thanks for supplying the reference, which I've added to the article. "Self-explanatory" is not good enough I'm afraid for Wikipedia (see WP:Verify). I tried to find the reference, but failed, so thanks for it. --Peter I. Vardy (talk) 20:23, 23 January 2011 (UTC)
Some facts are self-explanatory: not just "the sun rises in the east" but "John Smith is the MP for Toryville" and "Cornwall is the westernmost county of England". There is a finite number of MPs and there is a central registry thereof; likewise for physical locations. Evidently Todmorden Unitarian Church being part of the GA is not self-explanatory enough, which I accept. I've used your formatting of the ref for other articles on Unitarian churches that were previously almost invisible to anyone searching for them without knowing the name.
