That flag[edit]

Looks terrible like that. Just saying. Peter with added ‼Science‼ 04:18, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

And the Greek temple waving it in a circle was better? I wish I could fill the width, but we are working inside someone's knackered idea of a brilliant template. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:19, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
Yes. And it still looks terrible when the image goes all the way across. If you wanted to do it this way you will at very least need to make a new colour scheme, but I don't think it would be very readable like that. Peter with added ‼Science‼ 04:27, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

When did Britain suddenly become the (and an actual) 51st. State, you pricks?![edit]

Look, you Labour-supporting student knobs, if you want to discuss British politics on your tripe of a page, at least write the United Kingdom as the UK not the U.K. and replace the Americanesque Neoclassical Greek Temple with a Portcullis! -- (talk) 01:14, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Using periods in acronyms was traditionally in British English. It's just fallen into disuse due to it taking slightly longer to type. The usage was probably inspired by the Romans' use of acronyms and periods (they may have taken inspiration from somewhere else).-- Forerunner (talk) 01:52, 9 November 2014 (UTC) - edit: I just remembered that Edinburgh partially built a neoclassical Greek temple a century ago (before funding was cut off) as part of some Greek revivalist movement, so your automatic assumption of "neoclassical Greek = American" is painful.
