I don't really understand what EDINA is, and I'm no wiser after reading this article. It looks like it may well be a copyvio, although a quick google didn't find anything. It certainly isn't in the wikipedia style, and most of the information on here seems only tenuously linked to the subject. Maccoinnich 23:51, 1 April 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, I authored the original article, in all ignorance of Wikipedia style. I have edited it, hoping to make it clearer, and providing a link through to the website.

I am cautious about the line between saying what we are and trying to the turn the article into some sort of shop window - I suspect that is frowned upon.

I take the point that the long "history" section is probably not all that edifying and can see it might take a long and circuitous route to link to EDINA through a trawl of its dim and distant past. I'll try to edit it down and make it shorter and more informative.

Thanks for the comments so far.

Thanks for the EDINA page. I think it should also link to other UK data centres Mimas and UKDA pages, so I added these links (, I also wonder if the type of data centre (academic) that EDINA is should be made clearer... Perhaps it should also link back to the general Edina page too (maybe it does already)...Agdturner

Major Update 2010/07/21[edit]

I've rewritten the page, maintaining a neutral style - I hope - and am in the process of adding notes. Paulstephenmilne (talk) 15:20, 21 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
