Hi MuckleJoannie, and welcome to Shetlopedia.
I've copied what you wrote here for simplicity :-)
I am not sure what you mean about submitting copyright information. I looked at you discussion item on the "Brighter Morn" just now. As it happens I bought the booklet Skeld Festival of the Seas. It states that John Garriock and partners bought the Brighter Morn in 1974 from John Peter Duncan and partners. It was subsequently sold in 1977.
The Shetland Times online has the following story:
"25 November 2005 Times Past
25 YEARS AGO
A welcome addition to the Shetland fishing fleet is the Aspire which arrived in Lerwick on Wednesday morning from Fraserburgh where she was built by James Noble.
The Aspire is owned jointly by Russel Smith of Burra and Robert Couper of Skeld and she comes as a replacement for skipper Smith's previous boat Brighter Morn which was lost off Bressay in January this year. Other members of the crew are John Couper, James Dalziel and Stewart Jamieson"
- General rule of thumb on copyright is that we shouldn't deliberately copy information from any other publication, within the 75 year, or whatever it is, time frame. But information from articles can be used in creating our articles, and where required reference given to the source.
I think that makes sense, if not somebody here with more than one braincell will correct me. ;-)

Thanks for the information MuckleJoannie, that's exactly what I was wanting. It is the 'Brighter Morn' I thought it was, I wanted to be sure it was the local one I was familar with and not one with the same name from a mainland port.

I wasn't sure if the upload worked so thanks for that.
New Scalloway Museum
I'd like to do a page for the new Scalloway Museum. How do you do this?
- Hi MuckleJoannie. It would be good to get up to date details of what's been and is happening. As there's already a Scalloway Museum page probably the best way I think, short term at least, is to expand it with the new museum info.
- I've put everything that is on the existing page, with the expception of the opening times table, under a new sub-heading of 'History'. If the info for the new museum is added in the gap immediately above that 'History' sub-heading it'll keep it and the opening times table at the top of the page as current information.
- The current text on the page can be re-worded etc for context and to better reflect the current situation once superceding details for the new building are included on the page. Should the page grow to be cumbersome in time, the 'History' sub-section can be broken away in to a new page of its own as and when required, I don't think there's enough of it as yet though to justify doing so immediately though.
