I hate to see Wikipedia articles that are barely more than a list of links. Rmhermen 00:39, Jun 26, 2004 (UTC)

  • I was going to remove the links from this and leave the text, but the title seems to imply it's meant to be a list of links. Is there an existing article on this topic that the text could be moved to? Lady Lysine Ikinsile | Talk 04:14, 2004 Jun 26 (UTC)
  • I think this article is fine in principle, but the links should be all be replaced with links to articles History of the Catholic Parish of Herford, etc, with the existing hyperlinks after each wikilink. Keep, but alter. Mr. Jones 07:23, 26 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Alter.--Samuel J. Howard 14:30, Jun 26, 2004 (UTC)
  • My first controversial article! I'm afraid I don't understand how the alteration would work. Could someone please explain it?--JASpencer
    • I think what's being proposed is that separate articles be made for each parish. A stub template could be made for them, linking at least to the towns and shires, and the date of each founding; perhaps a brief summary of the externally linked history could be added, which would then sit on a single page rather than all collected at once. This would remove the apparent æsthetic annoyance of having a page of mostly external links; though pending these changes I see no harm in keeping it all at one place, and I would vote to keep the article.

  • Keep. If as the creator I am allowed a vote. I've added some explanatory text to some of the counties to flesh it out. JASpencer
