Succession boxes for people elected under STV-PR[edit]

My confusion about the Trevor Clarke MLA article has led me to raise the issue of succession boxes for people elected under STV-PR on WikiProject Biography/Politics and government: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Biography/Politics and government#Succession boxes for people elected under STV-PR (and possibly other PR systems).

Local knowledge required[edit]

The article on Newry City A.F.C. says that the team is based in "Newry, County Down", but the article on their ground The Showgrounds (Newry) says that it is situated in "Newry, County Armagh". One of them is incorrect. Can anyone clarify this? Tigerboy1966  11:04, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

Well the Greenbank Industrial Estate is on the County Down side of the river, not the Armagh side. Everything else in the industrial estate has an address reading County Down. So I'd say it's in County Down. I can correct it. Canterbury Tail talk 16:42, 23 November 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for sorting that one out. Tigerboy1966  19:39, 23 November 2018 (UTC)
Looking in the history, an IP user (who had nearly ever edit reverted) went through and changed the whole slew of those articles to Armagh. Looks like that one wasn't caught and reverted. Canterbury Tail talk 20:10, 23 November 2018 (UTC)
