Hello Pam:

I added references and hope I did it correctly. I also have newspaper photos, but do not know how to upload. Thank you.

The Hellenic Centre[edit]

Is capitalised on their own website, it is also the legal name. Please change it back. Thanks. Philafrenzy (talk) 16:41, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

@Philafrenzy:: See "the Hellenic Centre opened as a cultural centre in 1994" on, "support the Hellenic Centre." on etc. PamD 16:46, 17 September 2015 (UTC) and "© The Hellenic Centre 2011 | The Hellenic Centre" Philafrenzy (talk) 16:54, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
"The" is capitalised in situations like that whether or not it's a formal part of the name. The key factor in WP:THE is "would be capitalized in running text", and my examples show it is not. PamD 17:01, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
The fact that they are sometimes inconsistent in body text on their website is less significant I think than the way they style themselves on the header and footers on every page. That is partly for legal reasons but "The Hellenic Centre" at the top of every page in their logo is significant. also includes a nameplate image in that style. I would certainly be using a capital T in running text. Try a Google search and I think you will find that most people also are using a capital T. Philafrenzy (talk) 17:35, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

Help us improve wikimeets by filling in the UK Wikimeet survey![edit]

Hello! I'm running a survey to identify the best way to notify Wikimedians about upcoming UK wikimeets (informal, in-person social meetings of Wikimedians), and to see if we can improve UK wikimeets to make them accessible and attractive to more editors and readers. All questions are optional, and it will take about 10 minutes to complete. Please fill it in at:

Disambiguation link notification for September 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Natural area Dobrun-Rzav, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Rzav (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.
