Review of revision 988272 [Passed][edit]

This article is wrong[edit]

As pointed out in the opinions page, and in the article itself, the title is incorrect. The oldest living European is from France, and she turned 114 some time ago. France is in Europe. It's a shame nobody noticed this in time.. 24.85.243.172 (talk) 05:12, 3 April 2010 (UTC) : Yea. That is pretty fail. I realize the sources all say she's the oldest woman in Europe... but we ourselves wrote she was younger than the frenchy. Article has now been fixed (hopefully) --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 05:20, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Oops, actually, they were right. The French woman lives in Saint Barthélemy, France which is in the Caribbean.. i.e. is NOT in Europe. Sorry for the confusion, but it should be changed back. 24.85.243.172 (talk) 05:24, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
LOL. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 05:25, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
I think I've managed to repair all the damage. There may be a few stray redirects, but I think we're good. I was unaware there was a france not of france. I think I'll go put in a clarification of that. Otherwise, this was fun! --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 05:31, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Milestone?[edit]

On reaching the milestone, she was sent a congratulatory telegram from Queen Elizabeth II.

Why is the age of 114 a milestone? 62.204.152.181 (talk) 01:24, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

I suppose, at that age, every year is a milestone. Smile.png Tempodivalse [talk] 01:36, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
