St Donat's Castle[edit]

but...if anyone still fancies a review, this is up for PR here, [1]. KJP1 (talk) 14:04, 1 April 2018 (UTC) :Now done, but it will soon be on its way to FAC where any comments would be equally welcomed.KJP1 (talk) 09:46, 6 May 2018 (UTC)

Discussion on naming[edit]

There is a proposal to remove accent in the name (and all body references) for the Owain Glyndŵr article. This has implications for all welsh names (not to mention the use of the umlaut form of u in german articles and so on -----Snowded TALK 04:29, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

4,878 new images of biogs from the National Library[edit]

@Jason.nlw: Fantastic work by Jason, our National Wikimedian, who has just uploaded 4,878 new photos to Commons - National Library of Wales Portrait Archive. There's a lot of work involved here, together with the 300,000 or so linked data on Wikidata eg add categories, crop a copy using the Commons CropTool, add to WP articles. Enjoy!

Bristol meetup[edit]

I am organising a meetup in Bristol for this summer - provisionally Saturday 1 September 2018, and you are invited (everyone is welcome). I know Bristol isn't in Wales, but it will be within reach of those of you in the south east of the country. For details see m:Meetup/Bristol/3 to join the discussion, including expressing preferences about dates and venues, see the talk page at m:Talk:Meetup/Bristol/3.

Notability - Welsh language sources?[edit]

John Rhys Evans has been tagged for notability. The references are sparse and yet he seems to have had a fairly distinguished operatic career (besides being Sir Geraint's half-brother). I've looked for Welsh-language sources but can't find any - which seems surprising. Any thoughts?

I think notability is OK. His obit (name John Evans) was published in the Washington Post in 2010 (indirect ref here [2]). He died in the USA, so maybe a search there would be more fruitful than in Wales. Tony Holkham (Talk) 13:51, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
