Talk Page Protection

I have unprotected your talk page per WP:PP. Indefinite protections of talk pages are rarely used now and when talk pages are protected, should be accompanied by an unprotected subpage. If you continue to experience persistent vandalism, you may request a short term protection of your page at WP:RFPP. Mkdwtalk 14:42, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Scottish Fairground Culture Editathon, May 2015

Hey there! As a Wikipedian in Scotland I thought you might be interested in the Scottish Fairground Culture editathon taking place on 7 May at the Riverside Museum - drop me a line if you'd like to know more, or if you'd be interested in taking part remotely!

Oh dear, linkfail! Here's the correct one... Scottish Fairground Culture Editathon
Thanks for the offer, it's something I know a little about, both through my wiki editing on the Butlin fairground empire and through my off wiki frienships with the Taylor family (M&D's) and Horne family (Horne's Pleasure Fairs). Unfortunately life is so busy at the moment I find even checking pages on my watchlist a rare task let alone finding time to take part in an editathon. Hope you have great success - Stuart
