labor day 2006
Labor Day in 2006 is on September 4th, but it's on a different date every year (first Monday in September). Do we ever include movable days in the date page? I guess not as it's not on September 4 at the moment, I'm just curious. Aaron McDaid (talk - contribs) 14:55, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
Another somewhat-notable event...
Not sure what the criteria is for adding events, so I'll leave this here and let someone else add it if appropriate...
On September 4th, 1999, the Cincinnati Reds set two new records in a 22-3 creaming of the Philadelphia Phillies:
- NL/MLB record: most players with a home run in a single game (8)
- NL record: most home runs in a game (9)
I realize that sports records aren't really notable events for everyone, but neither record has been beaten in 8 1/2 years, and it's also fairly unusual for a team to score 22 runs in a game.

This event does not seem to rise to the level of notability required for inclusion. The event is notable only to residents of Georgia and has no long term global notability. A declaration by a state government is hardly of global historical importance. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 12:18, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
- Since when did it have to have "global" historical importance. It's clearly more notable than simply his appearance on American Idol for 15 minutes of fame. He's done more for civil rights, and now some random Wiki-Cop wants to go all "deletionist" and take away that recognition? Wonderful! WTF? (talk) 15:02, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
- These pages are reserved for events that are of global historical significance per WP:DOY. While I understand that some non-notable events exist on the pages, the newest entries get noticed faster. This event certainly has no global significance. I don't see any mention of American Idol on this page so I am confused by the reference. This event should be excluded. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 11:54, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
I found the following request for citation needed in the 1884 entry, moving it to talk where it belongs. Replaced it with a citation needed template.
(Needs sources: actual evidence suggests this ended in May 1840. http://www.migrationheritage.nsw.gov.au/exhibition/objectsthroughtime/order-ending-transportation-to-nsw/)
Captain James Cook is listed as British explorer on
So I believe he should also be listed in the box on the September 4th page as 'British'.
No mention is made of Captain Cook's nationality on September 4th date listing.
