Coat of Arms
I've just moved this from the article:
Could you possibly update the coat of arms? The one on the page is the alumni coat of arms. The actual coat of arms is slightly different from the one shown on the right. I am a student at the uni and I can't change it.

The West Country Challenge
Would you like to win up to £250 in Amazon vouchers for participating in The West Country Challenge?
The The West Country Challenge will take place from 8 to 28 August 2016. The idea is to create and improve articles about Bristol, Somerset, Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Dorset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, like this one.
The format will be based on Wales's successful Awaken the Dragon which saw over 1000 article improvements and creations and 65 GAs/FAs. As with the Dragon contest, the focus is more on improving core articles and breathing new life into those older stale articles and stubs which might otherwise not get edited in years. All contributions, including new articles, are welcome though.
Work on any of the items at:
or other articles relating to the area.
There will be sub contests focusing on particular areas:
- Bristol (Day 1-3)
- Cornwall and Scilly (Day 4-6)
- Devon (Day 7-9)
- Dorset (Day 10-12)
- Gloucestershire (Day 13-15)
- Somerset (Day 16-18)
- Wiltshire (Day 19-21)
To sign up or get more information visit the contest pages at Wikipedia:WikiProject England/The West Country Challenge.— Rod talk 16:35, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
Orphaned references in University of Bristol
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of University of Bristol's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 10:26, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
