Ok, looks like this is broken again (the vote buttons are definitely missing on this iPad w/Chrome). I'll try to look at it tomorrow.

This shows up in the "Did You Know?"

In the US The Beatles spent 174 weeks at number one in the UK albums chart, and 132 weeks in the US.

Frankly, I don't understand it, I don't know why. Maybe it's because English is not my native language?

It means in total. If you add up all the weeks the Beatles were #1 in the UK with all their albums from Please Please Me onwards it would come to 174, do the same with the US and its 132.

What does the first part mean? "In the US The Beatles spent 174 weeks at number one in the UK albums chart" Does this mean that the US has a chart containing UK albums?

I read that 4 or 5 times yesterday and never picked up on that, couldnt make it read incorrectly (i do that). I presume its a typing error.

Yes, it's a typo. Thanks for pointing it out.

Don't know if this is the right place, but it's a suggestion of a change to the site. I get this whole list of new posts when I log in, and I check them all to see what is said. Today I had to go through, and every time I had to go back to the top of the last page to get the current Fab Forum as it stood. Would it not be possible to put a Fab Forum at the bottom of the page, maybe next to the Add Topic button or the "Page:" bit?

Was reading your article on "Charles Manson and Helter Skelter" and there seems to be a typo. On the first page you say, "He also found references to the imagined apocalypse in a number of other albums, many of which appeared on the White Album." Shouldn't that be "…a number of other songs/tracks"?

Thanks. I just wasn't sure where to put it because I'd seen the "174 weeks" up above and that was about a typo. I'll go back to commenting on page like I did with Maggie Mae.
