Rijnsburg article corruption

Wikipedia Rijnsburg article: the edits of August and October 2022 add obviously erroneous information to the article. I am not qualified to determine if there are other inaccuracies, but this mischief needs to be removed. I wish I knew how to help. TanneC (talk) 12:40, 5 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This article was accepted into article space today, with a helpful recommendation to ask here if anyone may have more information on DRU, the Druware cookware brand, or access to the book listed in Further Reading: Rodermond, Jacco; Bourgondiën, Karel (2004). Vuurvast en energiek : 250 jaar DRU. Fonteyn & Andersen. OCLC 943938367. Thanks! Kerri9494 (talk) 21:45, 11 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Article: Het verjaagde water

Hi there, I put a new article on the book Het verjaagde water up and was wondering if anyone would like to assess it for me? Thanks in advance. D McParland (talk) 16:56, 21 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sources for Scope (1970s jazz rock band)

The draft has been rejected due to a lack of notable sources. I wasn't able to find any offline material from the 70s related to the band or any other "direct" sources that would get the article accepted. Does anyone know of any sources, online or offline, that could be suitable for the article? (talk) 17:58, 6 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

or, more generally, any 1970s Dutch music magazines which might be accessible either online or at a public library? DS (talk) 18:37, 7 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Waard dab page is at AfD

See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Waard. Is this a useful disambiguation page? PamD 18:21, 18 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Dutch word 'waard' stands for a type of flat and fertile land that has been formed by a river, but that is meanwhile protected by dikes, so that it can be used for agriculture (or other purposes) without having the risk of flooding. This as distinct from the Dutch word 'uiterwaard' (river foreland, d:Q333379), being a piece of land that is NOT protected by a dike, and so will flood periodically.
The difference between a 'waard' and a 'polder' is that a polder is completely surrounded by dikes, while a waard has only a dike along the river; the other sides are not protected by dikes because the land is (very) gradually sloping upwards, away from the river.
I don't know if there is an English word for a 'waard'. If not, then it could be useful to keep this page, not as a disambiguation page but instead as a page that can explain the meaning of this Dutch word. Then, (former) Grote Hollandse Waard and Hoeksche Waard, Alblasserwaard, Bommelerwaard, Lopikerwaard (and many others) can be given as examples.

Help needed at Netherlands

I've made a start addressing the many issues that plague our top article of the Wikiproject, but my expertise is limited. The article contains 78 cn tags, many of which can be found in the overly-long history section. I was wondering if people are interested in bringing the article to B class? Tagging a few participants who indicated interest in history: @Sottiwotti, @Rjensen, @NatriumGedrogt. —Femke 🐦 (talk) 19:19, 27 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sure. Count me in. Ruud Buitelaar (talk) 03:06, 28 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
