Latin Name[edit]

Without getting into a lame edit war I'd like to note that the Seal of the University which is stamped onto my testamurs contains the Latin name TERRAE REGINAE UNIVERSITAS.

"Advertising" tag[edit]

The user who added this tag recently has indicated that the phrases "consistently ranked first for business administration, mining engineering and life sciences in Australasia" and "admits the majority of its state's top achievers" are behind the tagging. I've left a message on his Talk page indicating that those two phrases are most definitely sourced (although the latter is only sourced to a UQ press release, I'll admit) and not desperately promotional and wondering if perhaps a rewording could be agreed upon to get around any concerns of "puffery". For my part, I'm not convinced that we're really in "advertising" territory here - there's no "all the smart kids go here" or anything like that - but I'm wondering what anyone else would think.

Royal Children's Hospital[edit]

Have found that the link to the Royal Children's Hospital links to the hospital in Melbourne. Given that the RCH was replaced by Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in South Brisbane, is the connection still existent and thus necessary to the article? Tbyrn21 (talk) 22:11, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
