A sizeable Lowland Scots people article has appeared today. It's copiously referenced but my initial impression is that, at least to some extent, it may be advancing original research or synthesising sources to advance a thesis not fully supported by them. Also, if what it says is of significance, it would surely already be covered in this project by now? Mutt Lunker (talk) 23:28, 16 April 2022 (UTC)
There is a requested move discussion at Talk:John Stewart, 3rd Lord of Aubigny#Requested move 22 May 2022 that may be of interest to members of this WikiProject. — Ceso femmuin mbolgaig mbung, mellohi! (投稿) 05:22, 25 June 2022 (UTC)
Hi, participants may be interested in helping 'restore' this page - and the other stations along the Oban branch line - with more inline references (when I found this page earlier today, I think there was one in total). Please do contribute if you are able to. Thanks. Mattdaviesfsic (talk) 07:25, 3 September 2022 (UTC)
Further down the line, if anyone would like to - or be able to - help with cleaning up the "Rockfall Risk" section on the page about the Falls of Cruachan derailment, it would be most appreciated. Mattdaviesfsic (talk) 15:41, 21 September 2022 (UTC)
There is a requested move discussion at Talk:Death and state funeral of Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani#Requested move 25 September 2022 that may be of interest to members of this WikiProject. UtherSRG (talk) 10:50, 5 October 2022 (UTC)
That probably was cryptic... why do we care about that? This RM involves about 50 state funeral articles, including at least one that is related to this WP. - UtherSRG (talk) 12:16, 5 October 2022 (UTC)
I am not convinced that the inclusion of North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board in the private sector section of Template:Sustainable development in Scotland is right. The organisation was specifically a public body, as there was political unease at private companies being responsible for the management of such natural resources at the time, and a number of private schemes were voted down by the Commons on that basis. There is not a "State sector" section in the template, and I wonder if the "Private sector" section would be better as "Organisations". I raise the issue here rather than just altering the template, as I am not sure that it will get spotted if I put it on the talk page for the template, and I think it deserves discussion. Who looks at such talk pages anyway? Any thoughts? Bob1960evens (talk) 17:40, 10 November 2022 (UTC)
