If the page is edited, could the Gazetteer be added to the list of resources at the same time?

Looks good. :D

If you want to make a draft, you can just make a new page. To do this in the Wiki, simply navigate to a page name that does not exist; the Wiki will then ask you if you want to create the page. (That's what I did with the page to monitor cleanup in Southwark).

If you want a draft for editing an existing page, I guess you could copy the contents to your new page, then make your changes there. If your changes meet with approval, you could then make the same changes to the "real" page, and then delete your draft page.

Or, of course, Wiki pages have an edit history (and don't we all wish WME did :x ). If you make changes on the "real" page and people don't like them, you can undo them.

I thought you could delete a page you had created, but apparently not. Only a sysop can do that.

You could always clear it out and rename it to something more individual (e.g. "UK_drafts_woodvale") and save it for future drafts? Or maybe one of the UK CMs has the necessary permissions to delete it.

Proposed update to the wiki - How to label cities page

Hi all...
For the parts of Hornchurch I can edit (edge of my area) I've already dropped (Essex) suffix along with nearby Romford... Rainham keeps its suffix because of rainham in Kent...

Terribly sorry but what does LB stand for? I'm guessing local borough but not really sure.

Probably just my NI confused self as it is a bit different here (we'd need some very different and rather complicated rules)

Proposed update to the wiki - UK Quickstart page

Probably a moot point, but, in the bit that EVERY editor SHOULD know the every segment is connected by 1 or 2 nodes bit might need a little * for reminding people that every segment should have 2 nodes even if it doesn't have 2 junctions. While this is great for getting loads of points quickly in an area it would be nice if people terminated sections when they add them.

Sorry, only my tuppence worth

woodvale is right - we do need better examples on that page that use "cities with counties".
