REVERTS

I've reverted a number of changes made by the last editor 81.108.15.24

The editor has changed Northern Ireland to the North of Ireland, I don't want to get into the whole constitutional debate here, let's leave it the way it was.

The editor changed NUS to NUSUK. The offical name of the organisation is the "National Union of Students," which abbreviates to NUS. If the editor doesn't like the name of the organisation then he/she should really complain directly to NUS. Until NUS decides to re-name itself, wikipedia would be better using offical names and abbreviations derived thereof.

To the best of my knowledge Stranmillis joined NUS-USI a few years ago while Ben Archibald was convenor, so unless anyone knows differently I've changed the statement to the contrary.

I agree with the editor that the sentence explaining the reasons for the formation of NUS-USI is unsatisfactory, and I'm going to look at rephrasing it, I think the editors use of the term "the six counties" is unnessicary.

Comment on Quarkstorms reverts:

I used the term "North of Ireland" and "NUSUK" as they are the terms used in the bi-lateral agreement.

Stranmillis have not joined NUS-USI. "Six counties" - fair to rephrase it.



Names of the Convenors are at: http://www.nistudents.org/sections/nususi/000480.php Anyone want to add the rest?
