Article not remotely B class[edit]

Off the top of my head, the article doesn't even cover:

-radio -jet engines -electric motors -microprocessors

These are not what you could call tiny omissions, and if I can come up with 4 such major omissions in under 5 minutes, the article clearly is not in any way suitable for even a casual reference source; and this would likely continue to be so even if they were added, I did not need to try hard to find these.

I have therefore downgraded it to C-Class, and there's an argument that it should be start class; it clearly is not B-class.GliderMaven (talk) 13:55, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

I have no problem with the class downgrade. I just noticed that the criticism of the content came without examples, which we now have - something to work on. Mdw0 (talk) 05:44, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

"Ship" ; Missing from list[edit]

Didnt see: Ship (vehicle) anywhere in list, nor sailing ship for that matter. Was surprised by this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.31.45.93 (talk) 15:26, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

Use of BC/BCE era (again)[edit]

For the past few months, the use of BC/BCE AD/CE in this article has gone back and forth, mostly changed by IPs, but also by some experienced editors invoking WP:ERAS but only to revert the last change. But this article started with BC/AD, and was still using that back in August of this year. It's now back to that again, and per WP:ERAS, must stay that way, unless someone can make a case that it must change based on the article's subject. --A D Monroe III (talk) 16:12, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Agriculture missing[edit]

Agriculture is among the ten most important inventions such as fire and written language. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.78.154.46 (talk) 23:42, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
