Factual Update to Federation Square Content[edit]

I would like to improve the accuracy of the Federation Square article with some minor edits. These include updating the list of cultural institutions - (some of institutions listed no longer operate) and adding a couple of factual details such as the date of construction, architect's name, etc..

Please note that I work at Federation Square and that I will strive to avoid a conflict of interest by only making the factual edits described above.

If you have any queries or concerns please let me know.

Go right ahead. Sounds like it's needed. Rebecca (talk) 04:14, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

New External Link added[edit]

I moderate the Culture Victoria website and have added an external link to images and video about Federation Square and the history of the site.Eleworth (talk) 06:00, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Size of the Screen[edit]

I noticed that the size of the screen was not to be found anywhere in this article and was extremely difficult to find on the interweb. Is there any particular reason for this, usually a permanent screen of such size would be publicised by not only the construction crew and architects but by the operators and the city of Melbourne.

Concern about bias within article[edit]

Federation Square has been/is still a highly controversial project I am concerned about the way this has been addressed in parts of this article. In particular, in 'Reception and Recognition' there is a statement which references 'The World's Best Squares' (reference 22). Unfortunately the relevant part of the article was provided by Fiona Whitworth, who seems to have posted the information when she worked for Federation Square Management during the square's opening. Using information which reflects positively upon the person/organisation who posted it seems to be a huge conflict of interest. I suggest this reference (and the statements that refer to it) is removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:41, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
