PS - I wonder if the author recycled the entry? I've done that in the past.

I’m sorry 32109 but you’ll have to remove this entry from the AWW. It doesn’t fit the guideline.

We only have one – the entry must not comply with the Edited Guide guidelines.

And this does. I haven’t read it yet but I can tell from a brief skim through of the first para… erm, centimeter, that it does. It’s about reality, google finds no other copy, it’s factual (well it’s not fiction), it’s balanced (couldn’t be more so), it’s not in the first person, spelling and grammar spot on… (I think it's traditional to shout ‘House’ at this point smiley - winkeye).

It's beautifully nice and concise for the PDA screens too smiley - smiley.

The only problem is it's got no subheaders. Can you please insert some subheaders? Perhaps something like 'Lord Lucan - his account', 'Lord Lucan - where is he now?' and 'Lord Lucan - what next?'

Okay, Lord Lucan's disappearance is one of the minor mysteries of the 20th Century and a blank page is mysterious. And if the Edited Guide can have a blank entry under 'war – what is it good for?' I suppose this can stay. Still, if I knew nothing about him or wanted to read up on Lucan's life leading up to the disappearance and various theories about what happened next, I'd find this rather disappointing.smiley - shrug

The Entry may have benefited from subheaders as suggested but this thread is entertaining enough for the Workshop smiley - smiley
