Hi Charles. Long time no see! Anyway, I thought I'd let you know I finally got round to writing that article (I'm slowly working my way through the list of Lutyens' war memorials) and used two of the photos you took for me. Much obliged for those! Best, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 16:52, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
Hi there. I've started a new initiative, the Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. It's a long term goal to bring about 10,000 article improvements to the UK and Ireland. Through two contests involving just six or seven weeks of editing so far we've produced over 1500 improvements. Long term if we have more people chipping it and adding articles they've edited independently as well from all areas of the UK then reaching that target is all possible. I think it would be an amazing achievement to see 10,000 article improvements by editors chipping in. If you support this and think you might want to contribute towards this long term please sign up in the Contributors section. No obligations, just post work on anything you feel like whenever you want, though try to avoid basic stubs if possible as we're trying to reduce the overall stub count and improve general comprehension and quality. So if working on DNB articles one day, place article improvements on the list! Thanks.♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:43, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
Charles, who would be best to speak to about editathons in the UK? It's just I think it would be possible to organize some physical editathons across the UK throughout the year in the spirit of this scheme.♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:42, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
- I'd start with User:Richard Nevell (WMUK). Charles Matthews (talk) 15:46, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
- By the way, in a few days I'll have a list from Hansard of missing politicians, MPs and peers. Charles Matthews (talk) 16:22, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
- Sounds good. Naturally the missing ODNB articles can count towards this too!♦ Dr. Blofeld 18:35, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Makuzu Kōzan, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Setouchi (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
Hello, Charles Matthews. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Richard Gerard, for deletion because it's a biography of a living person that lacks references. If you don't want Richard Gerard to be deleted, please add a reference to the article.
