Molesworth, spelling, and reverts[edit]

Please don't revert edits for poor spelling or bad grammar unless you're familiar with the Molesworth books and can tell the difference between verbatim quotes and actual bad spelling. Thanks! --Mpk 08:54, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Just a quick note to would-be cleaner-uppers: please do not capitalise nigel's name! Loganberry 02:13, 6 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Oh, all right. I was a young and callow Wikipedian back then! Loganberry (Talk) 03:19, 6 February 2008 (UTC)


I've checked my copy of the 2000 Penguin reprint, and the title of the third Molesworth book is written as "Whizz for Atomms", both in the contents, and in the reproduction of the original title page (p207 in the reprint). Nmg 14:48, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Molesworth 2[edit]

What is the warrant for the assertion that he may be called George, please? Paul Magnussen (talk) 22:40, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Molesworth.JPG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Molesworth.JPG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

I've added the article names to the rationale. Hopefully that should satisfy the bot. -- Zsero (talk) 04:50, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

"See below" - where, exactly[edit]

"The school's traditional local rivals are Porridge Court and Hogwarts (see below), who regularly beat them at sporting events."

There *is* no further mention of Hogwarts below (at the time of writing). Sloppy editing. (As usual).

Thoroughly disillusioned[edit]

... by the way Wikipedia *continues* to deliver low-resolution "mobile" versions of articles to devices which are high resolution. This is, as the English saying goes, "piss-poor". Wikipedia may be a volunteer run, charity-type organisation (albeit one which delivers one heck of an income! directly or indirectly, and fame a-plenty to Mr. Wales), but there really is no excuse for such appalling understanding of HTML, CSS and modern device resolution. In this respect the Wikipedia experience is set in the technological Stone Age. "Get a grip", Wikipedia (as another English saying goes). <<Posted by IP address: >>
