Was that source material mailed out to the accredited reporters email list? Cirt (talk) 05:11, 30 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Review edit

Title edit

Why is "2008-09" part of the title? Should that be handled by a redirect? Cirt (talk) 18:49, 22 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Because it is the 08/09 issue, and the "/" character should be avoided in titles. --Brian McNeil / talk 18:55, 22 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Copyediting issues edit

Shouldn't it be "2008-09 Wikipedia for Schools going online"? The 's' in "schools" should be capitalized in the phrase "Wikipedia for schools" in the fifth paragraph as well.

Also, the italicization of "Wikipedia" seems to be inconsistent throughout the article. This naturally leads to the question of whether the term "Wikipedia" should be italicized. Perhaps there is a difference between italicization rules for Wikipedia as a print publication and as an online publication? I tend to see "Wikipedia" unitalicized -- compare the article on Wikipedia to the one on Encyclopædia Britannica. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Emw2012 (talkcontribs) 03:29, 31 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The capitalization is fixed, but indeed Wikipedia is not italicized. I don't know why he always wrote it that way. Heavy Water (talk) 17:55, 22 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Er, where? More of a clue would be helpful. --Brian McNeil / talk 17:08, 3 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Presumably they misinterpreted "a Wikipedia administrator himself" as referring to Cockcroft instead of Cates. Heavy Water (talk) 17:55, 22 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
