Wood Pit disaster

Just created Wood Pit disaster. I know it's in Merseyside now, but it was in Lancashire at the time. It's a bit stubby at the moment and any help would be appreciated. Tigerboy1966  12:59, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia editing at Bolton Pride

Hi everyone, Wikimedia UK and Bolton Library and Museum Services are jointly organising an editing session on Saturday 21 September to coincide with Bolton Pride. Everyone is welcome, and there will be a training element for new editors. Event details are here. Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 15:32, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Pevsner 1969 North Lancs?

Has anyone got to hand the original Pevsner "Buildings of England" for North Lancs? If so, could you see what, if anything, he says about Grange Lido? Possibly under "Promenade". By the time of the new edition it was "Lido, 1933, closed 1992, and now very forlorn", but in 1969 it will have been thriving. Perhaps you could add a quote to the article? Or just reply here to say what he says. Google books only offers snippet view, so I can see that Grange-over-Sands is on page 131 onwards, but the word "lido" isn't getting any hits.

Doesn't say anything about the lido or promenade unfortunately. PC78 (talk) 17:50, 26 September 2019 (UTC)
@PC78: Thanks for looking. Pity it didn't get a mention. PamD 19:35, 26 September 2019 (UTC)

Training people to edit

One of our events with the Scottish Library and Information Council in May 2018.

Wikimedia UK are running a 'train the trainer' event in Glasgow late next month. It aims to improve training skills, cover how to develop and design training, and hone presentation skills. in-person events are excellent for getting people to think critically about Wikipedia, and people really enjoy peering behind the curtain to see how this place works. We run events with universities, museums, archives, and the like, and having people who can pass on their knowledge about editing is essential. The event is nominally to support our work in Scotland, but also has a wider scope of supporting our work across the UK.

If you're interested, you have until 1 November to register your interest by emailing Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 13:40, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Request for information on WP1.0 web tool

Hello and greetings from the maintainers of the WP 1.0 Bot! As you may or may not know, we are currently involved in an overhaul of the bot, in order to make it more modern and maintainable.

We'd like to collect information on how the current tool is used! How do you yourself and the other maintainers of your project use the web tool? Which of its features do you need? How frequently do you use these features? And what features is the tool missing that would be useful to you? We have collected all of these questions at this Google form where you can leave your response. Walkerma (talk) 04:24, 27 October 2019 (UTC)
