Recent changes and citations[edit]

The user User:Bladesmulti has falsified a citation from the book 'History of Civilizations of Central Asia: The crossroads of civilizations, A.D. 250 to 750'.

This user had recently made an edit to the "Other religions" subsection that "Buddhism and Hinduism were competitors of Zoroastrianism in the empire" and cited page 410 of the aforementioned book as the source. However upon investigation this book makes no such claim on page 410. In fact page 410 of this book does not mention any of these two religions at all.

You have actually read History of Civilizations of Central Asia: The crossroads of civilizations, A.D. 250 to 750? Stop making nonsensical excuses for removing something that you don't like. This is one of the many times you have attempted to game the system. Bladesmulti (talk) 01:41, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Do not accuse me of bad faith. The full book is available in PDF format from UNESCO History of Civilizations of Central Asia. This is the version i checked. Farzan Marzbani (talk) 14:51, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Clearly these are two different books, being published by two different publishers. That being said, I would not state Zoroastrianism had to compete against Buddhism and Hinduism in the Sasanian empire. The source states Margiana and Bactria, therefore we should state that within those two provinces Zoroastrianism had to compete with Buddhism and Hinduism. --Kansas Bear (talk) 15:32, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Yes that will work too. Bladesmulti (talk) 16:40, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Tagging and dating[edit]

Exclusive tagging of various sentences and already clarified sentences seems disturbing here,[1] also we don't have to exclusively date the subjects unless they are the main subject or it is important to clarify it. Bladesmulti (talk) 08:16, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Fine, removed both. Bladesmulti (talk) 08:30, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
