Need help expanding[edit]

Any help expanding this would be welcome. Sharkface217 00:58, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

How about information about the wars? I'm about to make a timeline, so perhaps I could upload it here? What do you think? Anyway, I'm also about to do a lot of work in this area, so I'll see what I can do about making this more organised and informative (hopfully we can also get rid of those cleanup notices too). --Will James (talk) 10:03, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Sounds great! Depending on how long and involved you'd like to get, you might want to think about starting it as a separate timeline and linking to it here. Just a thought - either way, your contributions would be greatly appreciated - also there's an award for work on this over at User:Transhumanist's award page. You might think about checking it out and getting a little community cred for your efforts! -Phyesalis (talk) 18:20, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Merger[edit]

I was bold and weird and merged "Ancient egyptian military" (We'd have had to move it to a title with correct capitalization anyway). Adding archive of its old talk page. Anyone want to take a look? -Phyesalis (talk) 20:19, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Good to see that some users are still bold. --Sharkface217 04:38, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Dubious[edit]

I added a "dubious" tag to a sentence in the paragraph under Old Kingdom because the sentence is unsourced and sounds like personal opinion. This opinion is itself dubious since the fact that a system of fortifications is never attacked does not at all mean it is "a waste of resources" since the presence of the forts may have served as a deterrent to attack, meaning they fulfilled their desired purpose. If no objections appear here I will remove the sentence. The Seeker 4 Talk 14:15, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Capitalization per main article Brandmeister t 11:13, 20 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Both the above requests are contradicted by the contents of their respective main articles, which quite consistently use the lower case "ancient". Favonian (talk) 11:32, 20 August 2011 (UTC)
  • The contents should be corrected after the moves. Both main articles are titled with capitalized words (especially since we are not referring to the city of ancient Rome itself, but to the whole civilization). Brandmeister t 11:41, 20 August 2011 (UTC)
  • The first word of the title is automatically capitalized, unless we jump through hoops using {{lowercase title}} or suchlike. It does not necessarily imply that it should be done elsewhere. Favonian (talk) 13:04, 20 August 2011 (UTC)
