Hi, could someone please fix my entry for 14 February in 1989 in British television. Not sure what I've done wrong, but the cite isn't appearing properly. Thanks Paul MacDermott (talk) 11:04, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Tidied it up for you. For future reference, if you want to cite a Google Books entry, the Wikipedia citation tool for Google Books is a very handy thing to have bookmarked. Yunshui  12:37, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for that, I just took a look and can't believe how easy it is. I'll definitely cite everything through this from now on. Paul MacDermott (talk) 18:24, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Seeking input[edit]

Hi. I began a discussion on Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding that IP address that accused you of slander. If you have anything additional that you can add, you can bring it to administrator's attention here. (Tigerghost (talk) 00:41, 6 April 2014 (UTC))

Thanks for the heads up. Looks like it's resolved, but I've added my thoughts anyway. Cheers Paul MacDermott (talk) 09:29, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Do you know if Wikipedia has changed its typeface or font family as it is also called? Or there is something wrong with my computer. I just saw that the typeface is a little different than before.--BabbaQ (talk) 11:12, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

I still use the old-style layout where the search box is on the left, which doesn't appear to have changed. But I got timed out yesterday and the font on the regular layout (where the search box is in the top right) did appear different. It might be worth asking someone at WP:HELPDESK to see if something has been updated as things do get tweaked from time to time, and it could be this has happened here.

Disambiguation link notification for April 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 1992 in British television, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Rolls Royce (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
