Article on Nile[edit]

hi I like animals

Picture in lead[edit]

Would it not be more appropriate to use a picture of the Nile trunk in Egypt or Sudan in the lead as opposed to one of its branches, as is currently the case with the picture of the White Nile in Uganda? I believe that was previously the case. One could also argue the since the Nile is associated more strongly with Egypt the picture should be of the Nile there, but that's a more subjective line of reasoning. Either way, I hope we can address this constructively, in line with WP:CAUTIOUS, rather than an edit war. --Varavour (talk) 23:38, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

In reference to the beginning of the article, the sentence, "IT is 6,853 km (4,258 miles) long," is ambiguous, as the previous sentence speaks also of the AMAZON River. Therefore, I suggest, please, that the two sentences be combined: "The Nile, which is 6,853 km (4,258 miles) long, is an "international" river as its..." Thank you.

The section on Bridges has been vandalised.[edit]

Green Purple Black Red Yellow Nile Road & Railway Bridge should read Blue Nile Road & Railway Bridge Black Nile bridge should read White Nile Bridge Martin Cook (talk) 00:12, 17 January 2017 (UTC) Martin

well, yes. Went back to 2013 to try and find the edits concerned, but vandalism goes beyond that. Googling both bridges confirmed (as expected) that Martin is correct, so edits made. Thanks for the tip off, amazing that we all let that ride for over three years. IdreamofJeanie (talk) 11:24, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
