Articles on settlements in Cornwall should be written using the standard set of headings approved by the UK geography WikiProject's guideline How to write about settlements.
At WikiProject Cornwall we subscribe to the policies laid down by Wikipedia - particularly civility and consensus building. We are aware that the wording on Cornish entries can sometimes be a contentious topic, especially those concerning geography. You don't have to agree with everything but there is no excuse for rudeness and these things are best solved through consensus building and compromise. For more information see WP:CornwallGuideline.
These pages are not platforms for political discussion. Issues relating to Cornish politics should be restricted to those pages that directly deal with these issues (such as Constitutional status of Cornwall, Cornish nationalism, etc) and should not overflow into other articles.
Most of all have fun editing - that's the reason we all do this, right?!
I've re-rated this as Mid for the Cornwall Wikiproject - Cookworthy's discovery of china clay in Cornwall started a major industry, which as well as its economic impact has had a profound and permanent impact on the Cornish landscape. DuncanHill (talk) 16:18, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure about the Low importance for Devon. There was a great kerfuffle in the early 1950s when the Quaker burial ground at Treville Street was wanted for a new development and it was realised that Cookworthy's remains would be re-interred in a common grave with other Quakers. Clearly he was thought important at that time. Eventually they were given separate burial. Plymouth University has named a building after him and there is a plaque on the site of his building in Notte Street. --Martin Wyatt (talk) 19:48, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
