This page is the Language, Scots. Several of the reference pages are to the Scots as a people. Do CP prefer to use 2 pages with something like "Scots (people)" - or would you rather add a section on "scots - the people" to this page? Please advise. --JeanJacques 10:38, 27 October 2008 (EDT)

I think two pages would be preferable, with something like 'For the language, see Scots (language)' in italics at the top of the 'people' page and vice versa. I'm newish here though so others may correct me.--CPalmer 10:44, 27 October 2008 (EDT)
FYI, I've seen lots of talk at CP about exactly what is plagiarism vs., copy right, and other issues both ethical and practical. As I was researching just now, to find out how to define lowland Scots (the language) I found that this article (other that what I changed) is a word for word copy of wikipedia. I don't care one way or the other. But I thought I'd note it for those who make these kinds of decisions.--JeanJacques 10:53, 27 October 2008 (EDT)
Wikipedia is one place where the copyright issue is pretty clear. Unless the person who wrote this article also completely wrote the Wikipedia article (which sometimes happens), then the text can't be used here. HelpJazz 10:58, 27 October 2008 (EDT)
