Thanks very much. I'm going to try to make more of an effort to 'tidy up' the areas of my specialism, namely mid 17th-century history and Wiltshire history. --Alex Craven (talk) 04:11, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

John Dove[edit]

I have put some comments onto the talk page of John Dove which you might like to take a look at and respond.-- PBS (talk) 14:09, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi. I also have interests in Wiltshire history.
I have myself found many terrible mistakes in the ODNB. Vernon Bogdanor has called it (among other things) "thoroughly slipshod", while Nikolai Tolstoy has said of Bogdanor's comments that they are "overly mild".
There isn't a problem with a source which isn't available online, let alone one which is available to most users of UK public libraries.
If we need to recycle the same footnote, we can do it by using (the first time) <ref name=somename>Author, title, date, page number, etc.</ref>, and then after that <ref name=somename/>. That displays the same superscript number in the text, all going down to the same footnote.

Disambiguation link notification for November 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Wiltshire Victoria County History, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Wylye (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
