Bad Grammar[edit]

There's a grammatical failure in the 'First Ku Klux Klan' section. There's a full-stop followed by a lowercase 'by' which doesn't make sense. I don't seem to have the rights to edit this. Feel free to have a look at it or grant me rights to edit.

Similar change--the Greek word kyklos is misspelled. thank you. :)

134.225.177.227 (talk) 15:19, 21 November 2014 (UTC) References to Popular culture:

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's miniature story "The five Orange Pips" tells the story in which the famous Victorian detective Sherlock Holmes investigates a case of a client who's uncle was a former member of the Klan. In the story, the Klansmen are said to warn their victims by sending them a letter with five orange pips, with the letters "KKK" on the inside seal, then to subsequently dispatch them. Interestingly, the dictionary entry for the KKK desribes their name etymology as having derived from the "sound produced by cocking a rifle", rather than from the Greek "Κυκλοσ" (Circle).

There's a grammatical error on the very first paragraph. It says "3 movements [..]. They first..." in a sentence that refers only to the first Klan and then it continues "The second..." "The current..." That Y has to go, so it says THE and not THEY 95.61.117.82 (talk) 17:59, 24 November 2014 (UTC) Yes check.svg Done - although if someone disagrees, the other alternative was to add "movement" after second - Arjayay (talk) 18:50, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Back to FA?[edit]

I noticed this article is a former featured article, and doesn't seem to be too far away from that status. It might also be nice to try for Today's Featured Article on October 16 of this year, the centennial of the rebirth of the Klan on Stone Mountain. If this sounds good, I'll request a peer review and probably a Good Article status before FAC. Tonystewart14 (talk) 21:41, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
