Vandalism[edit]

This page is frequently targeted by vandals, usually by anonymous users. How can we make this at least a semi-protected page, making this kind of crap more difficult? Kochamanita (talk) 19:06, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

  • I will monitor this page, as I'm trying to rehab it (see merger proposal below). Should this remain an issue, refer to WP:VAN for instructions. Warn first, then request protection.Cdtew (talk) 19:14, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Map of territorial claims[edit]

The following off-site maps show the various claims of the original Thirteen Colonies: [1], [2], [3], and [4]. If this information could be included in a map of this province's claims, it would be great. (This request was originally made by jengod, and I moved it here.) – Quadell (talk) (bounties) 16:06, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

Proposed merger from Royal Colony of North Carolina[edit]

Redirected Royal Colony of North Carolina here since there is no opposition and the discussion has gone on for a month. There really wasn't anything requiring a histmerge, but I can if you think this is mistaken, just ping me on my talk page. Dennis Brown - © Join WER 14:42, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

The Royal Colony article's existence is redundant, and the supposition that the Province and Royal Colony were different is incorrect. The province was still a province, merely it was treated (with the exception of the Granville District as a Royal Colony after 1729. That didn't change its provincial status. I propose we move Royal Colony of North Carolina and merge with this more complete article. Cdtew (talk) 17:34, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Merge/Comment: See, for example, http://digital.lib.ecu.edu/1028, the 1733 Moseley map which is one of the first known post-1729 depictions of North Carolina. The colony is still referred to as the "Province of North Carolina" despite its semi-Royal status.Cdtew (talk) 19:16, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Merge I concur that this article is completely redundant and contains only overlapping information. VoodooShamen (talk) 12:57, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
