The interconnector on Wikipedia

    The Wikipedia page on the interconnector, here , had a discussion page related to some aspects of the project. The discussion page is now empty (apart from a banner stating that it part of the Wikiprojects Ireland section of the site), and there is no history.

    I understood that Wikipedia allowed one to view all the previous versions of each page.

    There definitely was some previous discussion about this project. How is this discussion not now visible?

    The page was moved from Interconnector to DART underground. You need to bypass the redirect

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Interconnector_%28rail_tunnel%29

    Thanks for the link.

    However, that is not very easy to find if visiting Wikipedia looking for information about the interconnector.

    And if one follows the link you give, then looks at the page and then goes back to discussion, the entire discussion is gone.

    Could the discussion page not have been redirected along with the actual page?

    Why ask that here?

    Some members here actively try to keep Wikipedia pages up-to-scratch.

    That said, the discussion page on Dart's Wikipedia page is probably the best place to get answers, if any answers are to be gotten.

    Why ask that here?

    Would there be a better forum you could suggest?

    Anyway, the problem has now been solved, probably thanks to somebody who watches this board. LeinsterDub perhaps? Nicely done, whoever it was.:)

    Well, LD, your original post was helpful to me. And may have helped someone else to reunite the main page and the discussion page. Thanks.:)
