bold aliases and acronyms[edit]

I notice you have been adjusting the acronyms of many institutions. In particular you added bolding of EOU in the Eastern Oregon University article. According to the Manual of Style, MOS:BOLD is to be used sparingly and only in specific circumstances. While I agree it makes some sense to render EOU in this way, it is not the article title, nor is there a primary link to it. EOU is only a relatively uncommon synonym mostly used by college related people in the area. —EncMstr (talk) 17:03, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

EncMstr, according to MOS:BOLDSYN, parenthetical acronyms in the lead sentence should always be in boldface. If an acronym is not common enough to be in boldface, it should not be in the lead sentence. Michipedian (talk) 18:15, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't notice this until now. Not sure why.
I didn't know about BOLDSYN until now. Thanks for pointing it out and sorry for the trouble. —EncMstr (talk) 18:53, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
No problem. Michipedian (talk) 23:48, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Ways to improve Plymouth Christian Academy[edit]

Hi, I'm Libby norman. Michipedian, thanks for creating Plymouth Christian Academy!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Thanks for your article on Plymouth Christian Academy. This currently doesn't have any reliable third party references. Please see the guidance at WP:NSCHOOL as it would be a good idea to provide something to justify inclusion. Libby norman (talk) 17:18, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. Libby norman (talk) 17:18, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

World Map question[edit]

Sonĝanto: I may have used either Inkscape or just plain editing the text file of the SVG in any text editor (Notepad, for example). Probably, since I was new to SVG at the time (and still am), I merely just grouped all the disparate parts of a country (like islands and exclaves) in Inkscape and "grouped" them together under one tag, then had the Wikipedia community clean up the superfluous code that Inkscape creates. (I've at least since learned how to group together using a text editor). I also want to stress that the initial SVG map was done by en:User:Brianski and he deserves *way* more recognition than he has been getting for his work. All I did, and I want to stress this for people, is take Brianski's original SVG and grouping disparate parts together, fixing the error I perceived that was holding the map back from being really useable. If you want to know how Brianski made the original SVG file, you'd have to ask him (and please do, and give him some love for creating the darned thing originally!) I still am no good at creating new SVG files, even when the world map needs updating, like having South Sudan added, for example, I can't do that, and rely on Wikipedians much better than me to do it. --Canuckguy (talk) 18:41, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
