I can't edit the page, but I'd like to point out that the info bar on the right side says that he reigned from "16 January 27 BC – 19 August AD 14", I could be wrong, but shouldn't that 2nd date be 19 August 14 AD? Just that the 14 and the AD are switched around incorrectly. Just wanted to point that out, if I'm wrong then ignore this. Thanks!

Please change where dates that say BC with BCE and dates that say AD with CE. This change is needed because the more politically correct and secular terms for eras would be BCE and CE. SupaSmasha (talk) 17:29, 4 October 2014 (UTC)
Please read WP:BCE, either AD/BC or CE/BCE are acceptable conventions for Wikipedia as long as they are used consistently within the article. Mediatech492 (talk) 17:43, 4 October 2014 (UTC)
This makes little sense to me: "Following the assassination of his maternal great-uncle Julius Caesar in 44 BC, Caesar's will named Octavius as his adopted son and heir."VictoriaGraysonTalk 03:10, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
The idea seems to be that Julius named Octavius as his heir in his will, and when he died Octavius was therefore his adopted son and heir. However, this sounds wrong; I thought Octavius was adopted before Julius's death. But it's not really my area of expertise, so I won't try to sort it out. Anyone who knows more about this than me? — Eru·tuon 20:05, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Instead of describing his religion as "Roman paganism", it would be better to refer to the "ancient Roman religion". Paganism was a pejorative term coined much later and would be an anachronistic way to refer to the official state religion of Augustus's Rome.

"Ancient Roman religion" could just as easily refer to Christianity, seeing how it was adopted by the Romans in late antiquity. The phrase "Roman polytheism" would be just fine and neutral for that matter. The link "Roman paganism" redirects to the article Religion in ancient Rome, while the link "Greco-Roman paganism" redirects to the article Hellenistic religion. Either choice would be fine, really.Pericles of AthensTalk 21:47, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
In this changeUser:188.8.131.52 claims that Augustus completed the corrections to the Julian calendar in February AD 4. The source cited indicates the last change to the leap year cycle as part of Augustus's correction was the omission of the leap day in February AD 4. I believe, in a brief summary, it is better to indicate the first month that fully agreed with the proleptic Julian calendar, which is March AD 4. Otherwise, readers might assume that February AD 4 was in full agreement with the proleptic Julian calendar, and mistakenly think 29 February AD 4 existed. Jc3s5h (talk) 17:55, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
