Cleaning up[edit]

I've started some cleaning up and referencing. I couldn't figure out were to put the list of addresses (is it needed?). Ozdaren (talk) 23:24, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

See Also vs. External Links[edit]

I didn't want to make this change without consultation, but, it seems to me that the 3 items listed as 'see also', more properly belong under 'external links'. is it not the case that 'see also' is used for directing the reader to other,related Wikipedia articles? I think so. how's this for an anecdote? an acme whistle cost me a tooth. I was refereeing a rugby match and i did 2 things wrong. i was in the way in goal, and i had my thunderer, contary to policy, in my mouth. the rest shouldn't require description.Toyokuni3 (talk) 18:01, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

I agree, they are external links.Ozdaren (talk) 22:09, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Eternal links[edit]

Some of the external links that were removed contain various amounts of information about the development of police whistles in the UK. The development of these whistles is in tandem with the history of J Hudson & Co and provide a useful insight into how Acme/J Hudson & Co became synonymous with whistles in the UK. I propose to reinstate the most relevant links. Ozdaren (talk) 02:10, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Why not incorporate the important information into the article and give them as a source? As I understand WP:EL that is preferable to giving them as external links. --Muhandes (talk) 05:59, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
In a way that is true as this will provide more citations (which the article lacks). However I'll leave this to someone else who has more interest in whistles. I'm just a passingly interested bystander. Ozdaren (talk) 09:55, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
