A couple of tips[edit]

Hello, and thank you for the material you've added to the encyclopedia. I'd like to give you a few tips about various formatting things, if I may:

  • Titles of books, CDs, films and so on (but not songs) should be in italics. To do this, put two single apostrophes (') before and after the name, like this: ''This is the Title''. If the title is a wikilink, the marks should go outside the brackets: ''[[This Is the Title]]'' (Incidentally, three marks will make the word bold and five will make it bold and italic.)
  • Section titles in Wikipedia articles should have only the first word capitalized, unless the title is also a proper name, i.e. ==Early life== rather than ==Early Life==
  • "See also" section should generally contain only links to existing articles, unless you plan to write a new article shortly. Also, these are usually, but not always, simply lists of links rather than long descriptions.
  • You can make a list easily by beginning each entry with an asterisk *. If you do, you won't need to add a <br> to the end of each entry.

I'm sure you can pick up the nuances of Wiki-formatting from looking around at the various articles while you're working on them. If you follow the example of what you see is already there, you might still get it wrong, but at least you'll be in good company!

Please feel fre to contact me on my talk page if you have any questions or if I can be of any help to you in any way. Best, Beyond My Ken (talk) 09:43, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Censuses and so on[edit]

Hi, we need to be careful using census and BMD information in Wikipedia, as the use of secondary sources is generally preferred to avoid original research. While the information is obviously useful, there can be problems as an example, in the information you added about Henry Allingham, the name of the road where he lived was given as Vernlum Avenue - this appears to be a transcription error. So far as I'm aware, Vernlum has no meaning, whereas Verulam is a shortened version of Verulamium, Roman St Albans. If you check multimap or Google Maps etc, you'll see there is still a Verulam Avenue in Walthamstow today. David Underdown (talk) 18:11, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
