Blaeste[edit]

I can't find any non-Wikipedia mention of "Blasete" on Google, and the only Wikipedia mention I do find is in this entry. Removing it. -- Jim Redmond 21:32, 7 Nov 2003 (UTC)

Presley[edit]

As Elvis Presley died in 1977 and I cannot find other sources to any Elvis show being on TV in this year, I have come to think that maybe the Aloha from Hawaii-show was meant. This groundbreaking media event, however, was in 1973!--J. Michael Hansen 14:31, 26 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Page layout years[edit]

There is a discussion on my talk page on page layout.

For most of the last three hundred years there is inconsistency and duplication between the year in topic paragraph, the "see also" box and what is on the year by topic pages. Prior to 1950 I am pretty convinced we can painlessly (except for sore fingers) delete all of the year in topic paragraphs and ensure that the material goes into a "see also" box, creating such a box where none exists. Post 1950, particularly from the "year in US television" link a lot of material has been added to this paragraph as highlights (sometimes making up most of the page content pointed at).

Personally I think we should still delete the paragraph, keep the box linking to the topic sites and move any particularly important parts of the year in topic paragraph to the main chronological list. This does involve undoing quite a bit of work which someone has done.

Therefore, unlike for prior to 1950 (where I've said no objection= I do it) for post 1950 I won't touch these pages unless a significant number of people agree with the change. (I am also unlikely to get the pre 1950 stuff done before summer unless the service speed improves dramatically). talk--BozMo 13:53, 7 May 2004 (UTC)

August 25 - September 8th, Hurricane David[edit]

I think that information on Hurricane David should be added. It was fairly destructive in the carribean, and has its name retired.

August 15[edit]

India freed from British Empire? Am I being a dullard, or did India and Pakistan not achieve independence and autonomy in 1947? If no one points out what I'm missing, then I will delete —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.202.83.30 (talk) 12:53, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

See Indian independence movement#Independence, 1947 to 1950. I have added some links to the entry to make things clearer. Winston365 (talk) 21:49, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
