Clear template on 23rd Government article[edit]

Could I ask, what is the use in the Clear template on the 23rd Government article? I removed it as I thought it might have been a mistake as I have never seen such a template used on an article before. Miraheze-Logo.svg Eolais | Talk | Contribs 23:34, 29 October 2019 (UTC)

It's purpose is to add clear space between the infobox and the table, so the table is not squished. Spleodrach (talk) 18:14, 30 October 2019 (UTC)


Hi - Many thanks for your edits on the Irish courthouses. I was intrigued as to why you were moving the Irish version of the name out of "native name" and into the "name" section. I appreciate that the Irish name needs to be given equal prominence in the real world in Ireland. But this is English wikipedia and Irish is the native language in Ireland. Take a look at Leinster House for example. Views welcome. Best wishes. Dormskirk (talk) 20:03, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi @Dormskirk:, yes to give the Irish name equal prominence, and also to get rid of the unsightly Native name label that appears, see Petra or Suomenlinna. This label does not appear in 'Infobox building' only 'Infobox historic site'. If you do not agree, then feel free to revert my changes. Also, thanks for your work on Irish courthouses and county halls. Spleodrach (talk) 20:31, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
Hi - Many thanks for that. I agree that the Native name label is unsightly. I might give thought to switching to 'Infobox building'. Great suggestion. Best wishes. Dormskirk (talk) 20:48, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
@Dormskirk: Also, would you mind creating the talk page for your new articles with the appropriate WikiProject template, i.e. for Irish Courthouses and County halls - {{WikiProject Ireland|class=Start|importance=Low}}. Thanks again! Spleodrach (talk) 20:51, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
Yes, will do. Thanks again. Dormskirk (talk) 20:54, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

For your help and support in pointing out the benefits of 'Infobox building' over 'Infobox historic site' which I had not realised! Many thanks. Dormskirk (talk) 09:12, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
You're welcome! Spleodrach (talk) 17:40, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks![edit]


Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at

Thank you!
