Akbar Atri

Hi Melissa,

That was indeed a typo. I have amended it:

On 18 March 2006, Akri spoke at an "Iran Freedom Concert" at Harvard University. The event was controversial within the Iranian community at the university. Two Ph.D students wrote in the Harvard Crimson: --Tom Griffin 14:27, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Climate categories

Hi Melissa, nice to meet you.

How do I create a new category or delete an un-useful category?

  • Category:Climate: Industry People
  • Category:Climate: Government People]]
  • Category:Climate: Government Policy]]
  • Category:Climate: Carbon Trading]]
  • Category:Climate: NGOs and Consumer Groups]]
  • Category:Climate: Lobbyists and PR Consultants]]

are all new and come up red at the bottom of the pages they are on.

Any tips much appreciated. Couldn't find anything on help pages.

Thanks. xxx --Miriam Rose 12:05, 7 July 2010 (UTC) 10:25, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

re: reference links

hi Melissa,

the FoE links arent working any more - apparently they've removed the related documents. the references are correct (double-checked). i thought that's why we had the last access dates on, in case they removed the pages. do you think it's a problem?

barch (your signature seems to be working fine but mine isn't it seems)

re: reference links

I haven't been able to find the documents online, but I could always try to contact someone from FoE and ask. Even then, it would take a lot of time to change all the references to the new ones. On the other hand, it might still be handy to know where they are, in case anyone else would like to use the information.

re: category caps MEP DE GRÜNE‎

Hi Melissa,

I used the caps for categories as we do with "MEP" and country abbreviation as "DE", and the party abbreviations as the EP website itself refers to them. And it sort of makes more sense to capitalise them as they can be confused with the full name as in "Die Grünen", which abbreviates to "Grüne" - which is not grammatically correct, hence the capitalised form "GRÜNE".

What do u think?

PS: My signature seems to be working now.

University of Surrey

Hi Melissa,

I have fixed the University of Surrey hyperlink and it now works.


Teaching Terrorism

Hi Melissa,

I have added the questions to the University of Salford and changed the weird symbols on Nottingham Trent, they were simple - dashes. Ill keep an eye on the weird symbols.

David Simon page

Hi Melissa! Happy new year to you, too!

I have moved the page to the full name (David Alec Gwyn Simon) - for the sake of being correct and using full names - and redirected the old one to the full name. Page history remains under David Simon in case you need it. Probably I should only have created the page with the full name and redirected it to the old one if you think it's better?

--Barçın Uluışık 14:20, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

oh, i seem to have completely forgotten about that function! information noted and page reinstalled! i just cannot move the page to the name to David Alec Gwyn Simon because it already exists. could you please delete that page so i can move the David Simon page there? sorry for the trouble :s

Kings College page

Hi Melissa, unfortunately they supplied us with a duff hyperlink. Ill try and find a good one on their website, in the meantime I'll add a note to the text.

Hi Melissa, I don't use a template. I must have just copied affilitations from another page and not noticed, then repeated the error as I created more pages. I've fixed them all now but I can't help with the affilitations embed as I don't use templates. I must have copied it from a page I was editing though.


Excerpta's series of 'Australasian Journals',

Australasian Journal of Hospital Medicine (2000-2001) Australasian Journal of General Practice (200?-05) Australasian Journal of Cardiovascular Medicine (2000-2001) Australasian Journal of General Practice Australasian Journal of Cardiology (2002-) Australasian Journal of Clinical Pharmacy Australasian Journal of Clinical Practice Australasian Journal of Musculoskeletal Medicine (2002) Australasian Journal of Neurology


Good spot, thanks. I will fix it and reload.

Google maps

Yes, so the thing to do I guess is:

  1. delete it
  2. put it at the top on the right and make it smaller.

Adding a table?

Hiya. Want to add a word doc table to European Aluminium Association page in lightweighting cars section and can't work it out (as you can see currently a mess). Any ideas? Will email it to you in a doc in case you can sort it easily.

Will have article on EAA for Spinwatch by end of Feb.
