Article alerts[edit]

Earle Page has been badly compromised by poor edits in October and is now totally inaccurate as his bio has been replaced by sections of his son's bio. How can this be repaired? Castlemate (talk) 16:16, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Could you be a bit more specific about what the problem is that requires fixing? Mitch Ames (talk) 14:01, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
That's very diplomatic of you, Mitch! --Pete (talk) 16:56, 1 December 2013 (UTC)
It's now been given a seeing-to. Yee-hah, we're getting a "brick with eyes" in the next Senate! Bjenks (talk) 08:16, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
