Inaccurate, not targeted at young teenagers. Mandel 16:52, July 10, 2005 (UTC)
The edit by 22.214.171.124 seems to suggest that the 20th c. edition is a successor to the 19th c. edition. Is there evidence to that effect? To say that it "carried over some of the old material" begs the question, as in some sense that could be said of any edition of any encyclopedia, especially at this time when copyright laws were far less restrictive.
Certainly there are major questions of organizational continuity with other encyclopedias - lots of transfers and bankruptcies - for example, the Britannica. At some level, it's a brand, not an enterprise. However, the content there was clearly more continuous, and there wasn't a 45 year gap. flux.books 16:44, 20 October 2005 (UTC)
I'm an American and have accesss to Britannica online and the print version and both use British spelling, also. It's domain is .com, not .co.uk and it spells certain words like meter as metre. Do versions in the UK say "British English" on them? Britannica is run in Chicago but I think they try to pretend they're British because of the name of the work.--Primetime 14:36, 21 April 2006 (UTC)
The Sutter thing does not go very well with the rest of the article but I found it interesting when I learnt about it, so I WP:BOLD. Perhaps you can sandwich it with "The encyclopedia was useful for the pioneers... as shown in the case of Sutter...". --126.96.36.199 12:57, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this popflock.com resource article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at popflock.com Resource: Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with popflock.com resource policy, but remember that you must complete the template.
