Hi C,

I am afraid the following has to be removed from your entry before it can be accepted into the EG. The BBC and h2g2 have their own policies which your entry will be subject to. If, however, the inclusion of this text means that you have copied work from elsewhere, the whole entry needs to be rewritten. Please clarify which is the case.

smiley - ok

No, I'm the author, Of course I can't guarantee no one has copied it since I wrote it but its unlikely.

Thanks for responding, C.

Edited entries are subject to BBC and h2g2 conditions A462494, therefore you will need to remove the bit about ownership. I would also suggest that you reword your disclaimer and incorporate it into your text. Take a look at some other fruit entries that are edited and see how the subject of remedies has been treated there. Mine are still pending but these are edited:
Rambutan: A10358309
Quandong: A10422802
Durian: A330805
Raspberry: A284528

smiley - ok

Thank you for your input. I'm sorry but I don't feel comfortable removing the disclaimer. This kind of boilerplate is all over the web if the content is about anything that goes in your mouth.

Don't know if someone has already picked this up:

"Lime congeals eggs 'it' you give it time", should read ..." if you give it time"

I think a few more sub heading might help. tbh there didn't seem to be much legends. I found the stuff at the beginning interesting, practices & beliefs in South East Asia, but you quickly moved on to the Royal Navy, the difficulty in saying accurately when it arrived where & key lime pie. Not saying they all aren't valid, but it's not really what the title of the article implies.
Interesting though.

Thanks for catching the typo.

At this point, I'm afraid restructuring the article would be like rebaking key lime pie after its congealed. I can add links to more comprehensive sources though.

Hi there!

Maybe a note of the many varieties of limes that are available i.e. there is not just one type of lime. I am not certain about the different varieties, but they do vary.

In malaysia there is something called limau (lime) purut which I think is the "ka__ir lime" (not too sure about this - I also think that I just got my first block from the profanity filter because of the name...smiley - erm hmmm... ). This has a different taste (i.e. sweeter) and a slightly orange colour compared with the bigger lime, which is generally more common.

good entry so far!

Thank you for your input. Since I'm writing to share, not for recognition, I think I'm at the take it or leave it point.

Finally, I figured how to work in the varieties of lime w/o disrupting the flow of text. But I can't get past the filter either. According to Wikipedia, ka----- was once a racial epithet.

You can use the word as you have typed it there, in your post. The sub-ed (if this is picked for the Edited Guide) will add the word even if help from an Editor is required. smiley - smiley

Sho - unemployed again - Thanks Covid-19

just spotted a first person reference which will need to be changed:

>>In my favorite version, the Buddha negotiates a peace<<

how about: "in one popular version the Buddha..."

in the section "Limes in the west" you have a footnote right at the end of the last para. You'll need to move it to before the full-stop.

and I think the disclaimer at the end isn't necessary.

smiley - ok

(still haven't tried the key-lime pie, but I will)
