Type of English[edit]

The article has one word in American English, "center", so I marked it as being in US English. Some may feel that an article on a European subject should be UK English, in which case you can change it. GreatWhiteNortherner 02:57, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

I think it should be UK english - the spelling "center" however is common in Belgium (probably to distinguish it from the french spelling "centre") LHOON 11:31, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Support. This is reversing an apparently undiscussed move which was itself contrary to policy. See Wikipedia:Official names for an informal introduction to the principles involved. Andrewa (talk) 12:41, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Someone who reads French/Flemish might want to find a reliable source to cite for this information, I guess Facebook doesn't really count.
