Here is the URL ... ... is the publisher is it not? (talk) 07:08, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
Yes, that does appear to be the publisher. However, it should not be given as a link. Sorry about the warning, I'm sure you weren't trying to do anything wrong. Millermk90 (talk) 07:20, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
Maybe the Arrow to the Head is someone/thing that uses the URL? Anyway, happy hunting. (talk) 07:22, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
I see you're doing a lot of fixing references. That's great, but we don't usually put links to other wiki pages (i.e. links with [[ ]] around them. That's because when people click a link in a reference, they expect it to go to the referenced work, not a wikipedia article. Millermk90 (talk) 07:25, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
Can you give me an example? (talk) 07:26, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
Of what? Millermk90 (talk) 07:37, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
So no problem then, per your previous comment? (talk) 07:39, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
I"m saying that when you fix a reference, like here, don't add wikilinks (i.e. [[ ]] within the reference. Millermk90 (talk) 07:43, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
This --> FOREIGN POLICY, PUBLISHED BY THE SLATE GROUP was incorrect for many reasons ... on We are the 99%. (talk) 07:47, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
Yes, it was. my point is, don't add the brackets, which make it a link. The fact that you changed it is good, and it was wrong. However, don't add [[ and ]] within references. Millermk90 (talk) 08:02, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
