Geography - National trees.

Several countries have 'olive' as national tree, Portugal has 'olive tree' so that comes up together with 'olive'

In Albums of the 1960s, the Gilded Palace of Sin by the Flying Burrito Brothers is in twice, once showing 1968, and again for 1969.  According to Wikipedia the correct date is 1969.

I was pining for a reply on this thread, but it wasn't quite what I expected.

Aren't you an editor so you can change it? Or are you just declaring a change, so that it could be challenged if someone else has better info? I'm interested because I'm not sure how it all works, and have assumptions based on observations, rather than a clear description. Anyone want to post an explanation of editors, and also how the site was set up? I'm sure I saw something somewhere somewhere that said that it was ad-supported, but I've never seen an ad, thank you so much Factacular.

I can edit existing facts, but I don't have the power to delete facts or do anything clever such as avoiding conflicts within the four possible answers that appear.  You need a real expert for those things.

Got it about you. Could you, in the interim, change both to 1969? Or would there be cries of horror because 2 1969s come up? Too clever by half for me. (Why is it by half? Shouldn't it be by hundreds?)

In-tree-guing.

Firstly I have deleted the errant fact.

Secondly, you should have a few more super powers Nemesis. When you click on edit for a fact is there a delete button in the left hand bottom corner? And when you go to any subject page and scroll to the bottom are there some Admin tools there? If not I'll have to see about sorting that for you.

Thirdly, the site was set up and is still owned by Count Factacular. For a while there were ads shown at the end of a brainoff and ad banners on some pages. He took that off a while ago. The Count passed the day -to-day running of the site over to Stu - Doctor Factenstein and then a while later he passed it on to me. I can do a few things other editors can't but I still have to get the Count to fix any major faults with the site like there was a week or so ago.  Any other questions about the site just ask.

Ah, I've seen them now JMK.  Some of them appear to be pretty drastic though.  "Convert all facts" looks like it could do serious damage.  I assume it means within the displayed category and not "all" of Factacular?  Similarly "edit all facts"?

Yep, they only apply to that subject.
