Can no longer add my own edit summaries[edit]

Hi: I have tried to add my own edit summaries to a couple of articles but am only really allowed to pick from a drop down menu (including some of the ones I usually use); has something changed? I looked at my preferences page but nothing seemed wrong... any help appreciated. Maybe I should log out and log back in? [just tried that last one; no luck] FeanorStar7 — Preceding unsigned comment added by FeanorStar7 (talkcontribs) 11:41, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

What browser/app/device do you use to edit? PrimeHunter (talk) 13:19, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
@FeanorStar7: Do you use Internet Explorer? If so, see Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)/Archive 137#Forced HTTPS and Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)/Archive 138#HTTPS by default. --Redrose64 (talk) 13:28, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you both for your questions: I generally use Google Chrome but sometimes use Firefox. I edit on a desktop computer. I will look at the village pump links you mentioned; also I tried a complete reboot to see if that would make a difference; it didn't.--FeanorStar7 23:24, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
I just noticed this problem on Google Chrome today too. Not a problem on Safari. I think it has something to do with the way Chrome handles Javascript. It's also been noted that Chrome sometimes has a hard time handling local clipboards, for example. jps (talk) 12:51, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

I hope i explain understandably for the reviewer! Basically there were 5 top scorers and not one in the year 1961-62, which you can see if you go to "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1961%E2%80%9362_European_Cup . Then when those players are added, they must also be added in the lists "by country and "by player" Di stefano gets added to the list/table "by player (at the bottom of the page) because he won in 1957-1958 and 1961-1962. Puskas goes up to three because he also won in 1961-1962. Also Jose Águas has just won once (in 1960-1961, not as the table says also in 1961–62), meaning he goes off the list.

These changes of 1961-1962 also affect the list of top scorer "by Country", the second table from below. Jose Águas has already been correct there so Portugal stays 10, however, the 5 Top scorers change the list a bit as follow:

1) Denmark goes to three because Bent Løfqvist was one of the top scorers in 1961-1962 2) Hungary stays 4, but here's the thing --> Puskas had changed nationalities in summer 1962, thus the 1959-1960 and 1961-1962 are counted hungarian, but the 1963-1964 should be added to spain. This makes Hungary stay at 4, but Spain gets one added to 5. In the table this means the 1963-1964 that's currently on Hungary should go to spain, but instead 1961-1962 should be added to Hungary (I hope I explain understandably)/ 3) West Germany Heinz Strehl --> Germany stays the same in the list by countries as he was already the only one counted 4) Spain Justo Tejada --> adding another 1 to spain in the list by countries (making it 6) 5) Spain Alfredo Di Stéfano --> adding another 1 to spain making it 7

However, this too has a trick to it. Since alfredo di stefano changed to spanish nationality in 1956, him being top scorer in 1958-1959 and 1961-1962 are usually both counted Spanish. making not only the 1961-1962 added to Spain, but also the 1958-1959 of Di stefano that's currently added to Argentina in the List "by Country", making Argentina 5 and Spain 8. The information which this is based on can all be found on the wiki page i added and on the pages of Puskas and Di Stefano, and links, i ensure it's accurate and again I hope I explained well. good luck!

Marketing and Communications:

TO DRM310

Thank you for your message last night regarding our edits to a piece about Lambeth College. First of all I'd like to apologise for editing the material without providing an explanation. We understand that the editorial was edited on 14 July, by a disgruntled employee, but included a very misleading and incorrect information about the current principal and the status of the College.

The statement was altered by Lambeth College user1 to read:

In July 2016 the Principal, Mark Silverman, resigned following a review by the FE Commissioner where the College was judged inadequate, and consequently was placed into Administrative Status, whereby the College was placed under the control of the Skills Funding Agency until it can improve to a satisfactory level of performance.

Mark Silverman confirmed that: There has been no FE commissioner review, nor has the college been judged ‘inadequate’, nor is there any administrative status, nor is the college under the control of the Skills Funding Agency - Fact.

The last OFSTED review of the College was in 2014 not 2012 as stated in the editorial altered on 14 July.

Happy to give any further explanation if needed.

Regards Marketing And Communications Lambeth College
