Make sure about "S.R. Nathan" and "SR Nathan" since most government documents and web sites refer to him as "SR Nathan." - Fuzheado02:34, 3 Aug 2003 (UTC) 1. CIA World Factbook has him as "S. R. (Sellapan Rama) NATHAN". "SR Nathan" is probably just a Singapore thing. - Efghij05:33, 3 Aug 2003 (UTC) http://www.istana.gov.sg/president.htmlsays he was born in Singapore, not Tamil Nadu as is currently listed in the entry. Can someone confirm the birthplace as Singapore and then correct the entry, or note the discrepancy between the article and the official website? -- Jim Fung, July 8, 2005
The article currently contains the text: 1. Mr Nathan received his early education in several Anglo-Chinese Schools like, Rangoon Road Afternoon School and Victoria School. This information could be better formatted and cleaned up. Can someone who knows his education history please do so? 18.104.22.16810:16, 12 July 2005 (UTC) --22.214.171.12405:20, 8 August 2006 (UTC)== S R Nathan == The name of the President is exactly "S R Nathan" and this is clear from the Istana website or any government website. I have no clue why this page is called "Sellapan Rama Nathan", but we got to get this right. If there is no further comment, this page will be moved to the correct page title. (I think the same problem applies to Shunmugam Jayakumar.) --Vsion07:50, 20 July 2005 (UTC) 1. But I would prefer the full name actually. It seems like they like to shortern Indian names as thou people wont be able to pronounce or remember them?--Huaiwei 08:20, 20 July 2005 (UTC) 1.1. What I mean is that the sourc...
Categorising it under N while leaving it at its current title simply looks wrong and causes confusion for the 99.9% of people who are not from Singapore. Haddiscoe10:24, 23 December 2006 (UTC)
The picture in the infobox should be an official portrait of Mr. Nathan. I can't find it on Commons. Does anyone know how? Bonchygeez (talk) 17:29, 11 February 2008 (UTC) 1. Official photos of US people are copyright-free. This does not apply to works of the Singapore Government. ĞavinŤing18:50, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
Is there any better picture of this guy? The current one looks horrendous. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 13:49, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
It's clearly stated he was elected unopposed and that applicants had been rejected as ineligible. How many more times do you want to write it in? 188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:53, 9 August 2011 (UTC) 1. Your new edit changes the language to make it seem he actually participated in an actual election. elle vécut heureuse à jamais (be free) 00:31, 10 August 2011 (UTC) 1.1. He did participate in an 'actual election', as you put it. An election without polling is still an election. And one is not 'proclaimed' president; one is elected, or declared to be elected. With regard to the separate issue of "certificate of eligibility", this is covered later in the article, and it is out of place in the intro. And even so, this issue may not be appropriate for a BLP. Virtuaoski (talk) 14:20, 10 August 2011 (UTC) 1.1.1. Perhaps we should seek an RFC for general consensus on appropriate terminology when a candidate enjoys an effective walkover. I do believe it's quite misleading to say he was "elected"...
