I just created this page. Tail end sections including 'notes' and 'see also' are not visible although they appear in the editable version. Please help!

I can't see anything in the editable version that isn't appearing on the page - are you sure you saved the page? the edit history shows only this edit. —Keakealani Poke Mecontribs 06:37, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

OK I worked out that the problem was with my hidden comment, which now appears as an ugly red thing Template: please check date. How the hell do I make invisible comments? Rimi 06:39, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

The problem was an incorect use of html comments as <!-- Please check --!> instead of the right way: <!-- Please check -->--Commander Keane 06:40, 12 August 2006 (UTC)


It would be nice to have some words about other Advanced Learner's Dictionary than Oxford's. A comparison would be great! Not really able to help myself unfortunately. Calimo (talk) 13:33, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Collins COBUILD section[edit]

The new Collins COBUILD section appears to be 100% based on the content from "", without attribution. Phrases like "There were considerable differences between the 4th edition and the 3rd edition, but they don't matter anymore, because the only editions available are the 4th and 5th" don't belong on Wikipedia in my opinion. It also contains lots of statements like "The digital (CD-ROM) 6th edition was slower than the 5th and quite buggy", which would have to be supported by references if they belong on Wikipedia at all. Not sure what to do with this, short of completely rewriting or reverting it. Faixu (talk) 23:07, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
