Commercial link[edit]

User:80.195.188.66 added a link to a commercial website and then moved it above the link to the official council website. I have removed it. --Etimbo | Talk 13:01, 9 Jun 2005 (UTC)

..."almost entirely of suburban development"...[edit]

A completely misleading statement! The huge areas of parkland which dominate the map show that the suburban development is only in the TW1 and TW2 parts of Twickenham and the town of Richmond itself following through to Mortlake and Barnes. Peter Shearan 12:04, 13 October 2005 (UTC)

I have therefore spent the past two hours revising it. I have also completed the article (in a series) which connects with it: Richmond parks and open spaces Peter Shearan 13:04, 13 October 2005 (UTC)
Aren't parks and open spaces features of suburban development? I understand the misunderstanding, its much clearer now. To some the word suburban creates images of endless rows of houses but to others it is of lots of green too. MRSC 14:52, 13 October 2005 (UTC)

Hyphenation[edit]

For the record, both "Richmond upon Thames" and "Kingston upon Thames" are unhyphenated, unlike "Stratford-upon-Avon", "Newcastle-upon-Tyne", etc. I have removed hyphens from one instance and added a comment. — Paul G 09:34, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Newcastle upon Tyne is not hyphenated, for the record. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.26.84.126 (talk) 15:18, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Richmond, The American International University in London[edit]

I have removed the external link and put in an internal link to it. I felt it should be internal as there is already a article that discusses it. --Abdulha (talk) 15:44, 5 July 2008 (UTC)Abdulha
