University of Melbourne edits[edit]

Hi Bradhall77,

Regarding the claim of the page 'commonly considered to be Australia's most prestigious university', I checked the supplied sources and they both referred to the University of Melbourne as Australia's most prestigious university. Neither source was, as you noted in your edit summary, concerned with the particular standing of the University of Melbourne. However, both articles apparently considered that this statement was uncontroversial, as no rankings or other information was supplied. This indicated to me, when I reverted your edits, that the sources did in fact support the statement. I'd be interested to hear your views on this.

In future some reading on this subject could help but anyone who knows the history of the University of NSW knows that it requires an act of parliament to change the official sanctioned name of the university as was done with the change from NSWUT to UNSW in 1958. A branding change does not affect the official name of the university and that's what this is: I have added the 'UNSW Australia' brand name after the official title and that's common practice on Australian university pages. Also remember to reference your work and provide reasons or comments on your edits and maybe dispute like this won't happen. Regards, Siegfried Nugent (talk) 07:28, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
