Terry Dene[edit]

A tag has been placed on Terry Dene, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. If you plan to add more material to the article, I advise you to do so immediately. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources which verify their content. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

Also, we sign Talk pages and discussions. Articles never have signatures. Fan-1967 16:19, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

The problem is that, under Wikipedia standards, an article that is nothing but a link elsewhere is not acceptable. We'd rather have the red link, because that may encourage some future reader to create a real article. Fan-1967 16:52, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

List of artists under the Decca Records label[edit]

Actually I changed to a dynamic list rather then a forced column break that you were using. Is it possible that your browser is having a problem with the dynamic table? The command I used is used on several project pages so I don't think it is a bug in the system code. Maybe something unique to your machine? BTW, I just checked and the lists are displaying in three columns just fine. Take a look at a featured article that uses this, Alcibiades. Do the citations at the end show in 2 columns on your system? Vegaswikian 17:47, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

  • Currently everything on that page displays in 3 columns. It uses the code in the example I gave you above and on many other pages. So your statement that you are only seeing 1 column would indicate that your browser is rendering the data for display in one column, hence the question. Since the data is formatted for three columns on the display I don't know what your problem is. The likely culprit is your browser. Vegaswikian 17:59, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
