Alma mater[edit]

The infobox says that Alma mater is Harvard University but isn't it more correct to say Harvard College ? —  Ark25  (talk) 18:33, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 3 July 2014[edit]

Please change "Bill Gates" the title to "William Henry Gates III" that is his correct name and he prefers to be called that. DC Captain (talk) 16:58, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

And now it's 80.2. It changes daily, if not intra-daily. There's really no need to update the number in real time. Kuru (talk) 00:59, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
