I'm keen to start doing pages for the regions, and then breaking them down further into counties, but I'm a little hesitant about making the first stab at this. Should I use the Wikipedia page (e.g. South East England) as a template, edit it and move onto another region? Does Citizendium have it's own templates of any kind? And if so, should it? Or should I stop fretting and just Be Bold? --Stephan Burn 05:15, 5 December 2007 (CST)

Go ahead and do the regions and counties. There is a template at CZ:Geography_Workgroup/Gazetteer that can guide you. However, don't be too focused on the template. We don't want cookie cutter articles that are all identical but lacking any sole. As for importing form WP. I start by writing what I can do myself from my head (which isn't usually very much), read up and add what I can research in books, then at the end, when I've exhausted my own abilities, I will look at the wikipedia page to see if they had anything that I missed. So far this direction has worked well for me and makes our pages more distinct than if I had started with the wikipedia page. Derek Harkness 06:48, 5 December 2007 (CST)
The list of MEPs is out of date. There's been another election since then. Unless someone wants to do all the work, I suggest deleting this column of the table for now. Peter Jackson 10:11, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
I think a key consideration should be sustainability. Before yesterday no one had edited the article in three and a half years, meaning the MEPs have been out of date since 2009. If the list of MEPs is updated now, will someone be around when the 2014 elections take place? Richard Nevell 11:01, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
