Hi there

I am responding because you did !! lol

This is a bit of a touchy subject, the Norwich FC and the Norwich page seem to have had some action in the past, but the rest of Norfolk is all over the place, for example see Prehistoric_Norfolk and look how its been left.

There are others like the North Norfolk page - just type north norfolk into the search box and you will find 8 different pages which come up, 3 are on the council and elections alone, and 2 separate ones, 1 for North Norfolk Coast and 1 for the coastal path.

I followed some links on the Norfolk page and found that it had been chopped up and was in a right state, so bad that it had been demoted.

Basically I think I (we if you help as you are the only person who responded lol) need to make a list of all the pages relating to Norfolk and then get an action plan drawn up as to what can /needs to be merged and what needs working on etc

Anyway, if you are interested, write back to me - cheers --Chaosdruid (talk) 10:01, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

That seems like the right approach. I've never conducted an exercise like this on Wikipedia, so working out the best methodology will be new for me. However, it certainly needs doing, as you point out. Apart from the haphazard way articles have appeared, the content of a number offer scope for improvement or correction.

Let me know how you would like to go forward, and I'm happy to help if needed. Roaringboy (talk) 13:12, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi again

I am just waiting for a response from another highly active user on North and mid Norfolk pages, he has made them fairly comprehensive, so I need to see if he is on some sort of plan so we don't tread on each others toes - for example he has just joined the rivers project. He should have got back to me by end of the weekend and I'll let you know whats going on

My main idea is to try and get a Norfolk sub group set up so that it would be easy to check a page and drop in a link so we know what has and hasn't been done, but things like geography of ecach area aren't covered - I suppose the assumption is that htey are flat and the same, lol, but things like historical geography, for example no where mentions that it was easier to get to Holland than London from Norwich up until the 1800's

spk soon--Chaosdruid (talk) 16:16, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, you may not know that Wikipedia has a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Using different styles throughout the encyclopedia, as you did in Shawl, makes it harder to read. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. -- Smjg (talk) 00:46, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Margaret Beckett[edit]

Hello. I added the {{who}} tag to the text: "is widely considered to have behaved in an arrogant and impenitent manner". I added it because current public support was not mentioned in the Times article, so "is widely considered" was not really the right wording. I couldn't think of better wording at the time, so I just tagged it. The article's gone through a couple of changes since then, if you want to take another look and edit/discuss or whatever? --h2g2bob (talk) 23:33, 25 August 2009 (UTC)


Dragon Hall should be mentioned under musesums. That section could benefit from a few wikilinks as quite a few of the museums / places / organisations mentioned have their own articles. I'll let you work on the artice so that we don't get any edit conflicts. You might wish to use {{inuse}} or {{inuse-section}} while you're working on an article to let other editors know you're active on the article or section. Mjroots (talk) 10:56, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. I wanted to lay down the basis of the section to start, and planned to add wikilinks over the next day or two-the main problem being that Wikipedia is incredibly slow at the moment (for me at any rate). I was in two minds about putting Dragon Hall under Museums, and decided against pro tem, as I'd planned to visit it again shortly. On reflection, you're right. Any thoughts about the Guildhall, as I've seen that listed as a museum somewhere? Roaringboy 11:19, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Schools in Suffolk[edit]

Thanks, simple but stupid mistake! you're changes made perfect sense, schooling in Suffolk has been an interesting mess that many outsiders looked at with at least surprise! by the way Guildhall Norwich is not a classed as a museum and nor is it to my knowledge looking towards accreditation as one.Edmund Patrickconfer 05:45, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. Having experience in one form or another of both, I'm interested in the changing face of the Suffolk education system, both State and Private; and especially the crash from top 30 LA performers in 2004 to 141 or 142 today (oddly coincident with the tenure of the present administration, beginning in 2005). Re: Norwich Guildhall - Perhaps I imagined it, but I seem to recall that there was a possibility of it becoming a museum to Chocolate, but that, or any other museum use, clearly hasn't come to pass.

As the author of the Museums section in the Norwich entry, I keep an eye on what's happening in that field. The next event due is the re-opening of the full Norfolk Regiment Museum display in the Castle in August. I hope that it is as good as the revamped Bridewell, where not all has changed, as the upstairs floorboards still creak like billy-oh. --Roaringboy (talk) 06:27, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Southwold may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "{}"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.
