Help with David Harding (financier)[edit]

Hi all! Would anyone from this WikiProject be able to help make some updates to the article for David Harding? Harding is the founder of investment management firm Winton Capital Management and has been in the news recently for his funding of the Britain Stronger in Europe campaign but this is not yet reflected in his article. The full request is detailed on the article's Talk page here; key updates include the addition of his role with Britain Stronger in Europe, as well as correcting some existing information in the article. Full disclosure: I am consulting for Harding via Robin Eggar at MBD Communications as part of my work at Beutler Ink and will not make any edits to the article myself due to this COI. Instead, I am seeking uninvolved editors to review and make such changes as they feel are appropriate. Thanks in advance, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 19:07, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

Notice to participants at this page about adminship[edit]

Many participants here create a lot of content, have to evaluate whether or not a subject is notable, decide if content complies with BLP policy, and much more. Well, these are just some of the considerations at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship.

So, please consider taking a look at and watchlisting this page:

You could be very helpful in evaluating potential candidates, and maybe even finding out if you would be a suitable RfA candidate.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Peculiar material in Middleton, Northumberland[edit]

Has anyone vetted the second paragraph of the Middleton, Northumberland article? There is no source and it looks like someone has picked up a bad case of Game of Thrones-itis. --Oldontarian (talk) 12:47, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

Vandalism, now removed - eight weeks late. (You could have done it yourself, of course.) Ghmyrtle (talk) 12:59, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge[edit]

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 with whatever area of the British Isles or subject that they work on. 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. Thanks.♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:46, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
