Wikipedia - The Euro Pages

Post by melitikus » Sat May 03, 2008 3:47 pm

Wikipedia has pages about the Euro in general and then about every single eurozone country. I believe, we, euro-collectors can make these pages looking nicer by updating them ourselves. At first might not be easy especially if you don’t know the html language but if you observe how the others wrote im sure would make it. I am updating the page about the Maltese euro coins

good one Melitikus. Very much into detail.

Do you think it is appropriate to leave a link to EBT in the external links section or somewhere else?

Probably not, as EBT has nothing to do with Euro coins. It is currently listed on the Euro banknotes page, though.

And, since yesterday, EBT is also linked in a footnote as a citation source for the fact that Slovenian-lettered banknotes have been spotted in the last couple of days.
