Other headquarters in the infobox[edit]

Should would make a drop-down list of other major U.N. headquarters in the info box? --Zurkhardo (talk) 17:08, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

French[edit]

Why is the name in the lede translated into French but not the other UN languages? Gob Lofa (talk) 03:12, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

I would guess there are too many "UN languages" to translate to all of them. It's not really necessary as there are links on the left margin to the other-language articles about the UN. Chris Troutman (talk) 01:35, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
There's six offical UN languages. I don't see why French would trump any of the other four in an English language article. Gob Lofa (talk) 02:00, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
French is a lingua franca across a lot of Europe as well as parts of North America, Africa, and Asia. It's not too unusual to see. I'd recommend removing the French translation rather than add the other four, if it really bothers you. Chris Troutman (talk) 02:22, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
Someone got there ahead of me. Bon. Gob Lofa (talk) 16:40, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Footnote 15: Milestones in UN History[edit]

This is a 404 Not Found link. Does anyone know if it's moved, or just no longer exists? I'm reluctant to mark it as a dead link until we have more data (we might simply just have to change the URL). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:3:8082:9670:2C65:7632:2F3E:E048 (talk) 16:35, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done The UN split the single page into a series of pages. I added an archive URL, although not from as late as the accessdate. The citation will have to be re-done the next time this comes up for assessment. Thanks for letting us know about this issue. Chris Troutman (talk) 01:33, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
