The 1982 Men's Basketball National Championship Game that Midland College (Midland, Texas) won was a DOUBLE OVERTIME (vs. Miami-Dade, Florida), NOT a single overtime. Jerry Stone, Men's basketball Coach, Midland College, 1982. Thank You........ (talk) 04:00, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Possible way to limit bloat[edit]

A possible way of limiting bloat would be to have a design like this {{Help navigation/sandbox}}

Permanent link

Its pretty simple. Help: Contents, Noticeboards, Frequently asked questions (FAQs), Reference desks and The Missing Manual are changed to links at the top of the navbox. The rest of the navbox is much the same. This is simpler and might be more newbie friendly.

Any views or comments? --Jules (Mrjulesd) 21:54, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Good idea,,,,,do it,,,,not many will see this (7 watchers), I say do it see if anyone complains from seeing it on pages. But we should change the "help contents" to help menu link...as the help contents is in every page already. --Moxy (talk) 22:24, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. --Jules (Mrjulesd) 20:35, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
