Leciester anon IP Editor[edit]

There is at least 1 individual, with I suspect multiple IP, making multi edits to various things Leicester related, almost all of which is completely uncited or different to the sources given. I am not sure where they are getting their data from, or why, but unpicking their work without completely reverting the entire process is obviously a bit controversial. Examples,, among others. Pre-Christmas I was able to revert most of their efforts, but now feel like I am heading into strange territory. Koncorde (talk) 09:01, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

Invitation to discuss separate local government district article for Redditch[edit]

I would appreciate some input on Talk:Redditch#Article for town and an article for the district. About half of the area covered by the district is a rural area outside the town, so I believe the two should not be treated as synonymous. — Dukwon (talk) 15:26, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

English People wiki page[edit]

just a question really. In the English People wiki page it says the English are an ethnic group.

Is this correct? I can't see any evidence that the English are an ethnic group.

Could this sentence be removed? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jmewhyte (talkcontribs) 11:58, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Subdivisions of England[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Subdivisions of England has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Article says nothing constructive and repeats detail in many other articles

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.  Dr Greg  talk  00:25, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject England/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject England.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject England, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
