History of Belize
- The problem with that idea is that the History article would be swamped by the British Honduras aspect, which isn't good. My opinion is that the history page should be a nice, quick read on the subject (as it pretty much is, right now) and that it works best to direct readers to more detailed information about various parts of history - so we need a "main article" link to this page in the History article (which I'll add). - DavidWBrooks 15:59, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
Jan 27th 2009... In Section 1.5 of this article ("Decolonization and..."), just below the 1.5 heading is a link to another article (Guatemala-Belize border disagreements). I would suppose that 'stub' article was started so that this British Honduras webpage doesn't go too far off-topic, as this British Honduras page has a lengthy description of events in the border-dispute that occurred well after "British Honduras" ceased to exist. Wondering if any ladies & gents who are familiar with this British Honduras article can sort out what belongs in both articles, or just in one or the other? I just don't want to pull tons of info out of this article with the people who worked hard to add it wondering "where'd it go??!" or "I think this this and that still belong in the British Honduras article". ;-)
Perhaps best is to put lots of information from this article's Section 1.5 into that 'stub' first, THEN pare down Section 1.5 in this article to a minimal "Here's the aftermath of the territorial disputes that occurred when British Honduras was a colony" type of writing style? Because many (not all) things after 1964 (the end of Brit Honduras's existence) seems to go off the topic (British Honduras) of this article, dunnit? I probably won't make many more edits to that 'stub' article. I left a scant few other notes in that "stub's" Talk Page, and a biggie for anyone with expertise on the British Honduras period of history is: Please scan for inaccuracies in the "transition to crown colony" period in that 'stub' article.
P.S. And then on the History of Belize page, we have this shorter version of "Decolonization and...," but it looks to be intentional? (to not let the History of... page be overwhelmed by this specific British Honduras period?) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:11, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Orphaned references in British Honduras
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of British Honduras's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 08:10, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
Decolonization and the border dispute with Guatemala
This section is clearly too long, and it should be moved almost entirely to the Belizean-Guatemalan territorial dispute#20th and 21st century negotiations section, while part of the "20th and 21st century negotiations" section of the "Belizean-Guatemalan territorial dispute" article (the first paragraph) moved here instead.--HCPUNXKID (talk) 18:56, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
