Vladimir Nikolayev[edit]

It is stated on this page that this individual was sentenced to death for cannibalism, however, when following the link to this name, nothing of the kind appears in Nikolayev's brief biography. Eflester (talk) 18:15, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

I removed the hyperlink. I believe these are two unrelated individuals (both terrifying) 216.80.0.150 (talk) 22:03, 13 January 2014 (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 13:47, 7 May 2004 (UTC)

Roland D50[edit]

The Roland D-50 was invented in 1987, and forever changed the sound of pop music (and arguably, synthesizers themselves). To whoever keeps removing this, CEASE AND DESIST. It is fact, and more credible to be listed than some of the other events listed in this year. Further removal of the reference to the D50 will be treated as WikiVandalism, and reported to the appropriate channels for action to be taken. Thank you. Kitsunexus (talk) 18:40, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Please, I invite you to report this to the 'appropriate channels' as soon as possible. The 'action to be taken', however, may not be what you expect it to be. --CalendarWatcher (talk) 23:02, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
