Linking back[edit]

The FAQ on "copyright" and linking back isn't exactly true to the GFDL and just paraphrases someone's interpretation of it. Wikipedia needs to be properly creditted but linking back (e.g. from non-online users) is not a strict licence requirement. --BozMo talk 15:12, 15 May 2006 (UTC)


The International logo vote page doesn't exist anymore. Could someone fix this on this page? Eklipse (talk) 09:27, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Monobook and blue backgrounds?[edit]

The question "Why are some pages blue, and others white?" says that the default skin is Monobook, and that there's a light blue background on non-encyclopedic pages. It's not Monobook anymore, it's Vector, and I've never seen this light blue background except on pages like the FAQ where it is done through a template. —Tom Morris (talk) 17:50, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

Yeah there's still some help pages left over that still need updating after the switch the Vector. You're welcome to be bold and update it yourself. -- œ 21:28, 16 March 2011 (UTC)
