The entry for Mike Nattrass MEP appears to be up to date but the page is still showing a 'This article is outdated' notice. Can this be removed or is it automatic and still showing because of something I've missed?--Independentbrit (talk) 12:43, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

If you have updated the article and you feel it is now up to date, then be bold and remove the "outdated" maint. tag. Just click on "Edit" and the edit screen will open, then erase the very top line of code:
  • {{update|date=February 2013}}
Then be sure that you leave it so that the second line ({{BLP sources|date=February 2011}}) is at the TOP of the edit screen. – PAINE ELLSWORTH CLIMAX! 23:54, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

I need to declare a COI, once I have done this, how and where do I propose edits and get feedback?--Independentbrit (talk) 11:07, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

I have added a Welcome message above, as I see that, though you have been here some time, you have not yet had one. It contains some useful links.
Thank you for being open about your COI (it makes a refreshing change!) It would be a good thing to declare it on your user page. There is advice at:
Generally, rather than make changes directly, you should propose them on the article talk page and see whether uninvolved users agree. If it's a low-traffic article and you don't get a prompt response, you can always add a {{helpme}} to attract assistance. For a more general discussion, you could make an entry at the WP:Conflict of interest/Noticeboard.
If you follow the advice given there, you should find people helpful. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 11:40, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for your help[edit]

It's just me again, with a suggestion to organize your talk page in chronological order. As you see by this message, when people come to your talk page, they usually click on "New section" at the top to leave you a message. That automatically places their post at the bottom of your talk page. So you might want to consider doing that with all your previous Talk page posts, as well. Just a thought. Best of everything to you and yours! – PAINE ELLSWORTH CLIMAX! 20:41, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
