Y Repwblic

For those of you interested in Welsh Republicanism, there is a new forum that has been established to replace various older forums. It is still being tidied up but it is worth visiting as there is a lot of interesting information in the archives.

If anyone is a registered user of wikipedia here, can I ask them to object to the proposals at -
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Manual_of_Style_%28United_Kingdom-related_articles%29

The proposal is to make all the people who are listed as English, Scottish, Welsh etc into "British" by default

If you aren't registered, please do, but make sure you know how to edit the thing properly!

Here is the Nationality proposal -

QUOTE
* Where it is required to state the nationality of a person from the United Kingdom, for example in an infobox, British should be used.

* Where it is required to display a flag representing the nationality of a person from the United Kingdom, the Union Flag should be used.

* When referring to constituent nations in article text, it is usually preferable to refer to verifiable facts, for example "English-born", rather than just "English". If someone has clear allegiance to only one constituent country, it may be appropriate to refer to them simply as, for example, "English"; but if they have connections to multiple constituent countries, or if there is any controversy over this, more precise terms such as "English-born", "Scottish-resident" should be used to ensure clarity. Even where allegiance to one constituent country is clear, the names and flags of constituent countries should not be used in infoboxes where nationality is expected.
