I will attempt to rewrite the history section seeing how that has been mangled into a narrow perspective and false narrative. I will try to give as broad a view as it is possible given that different people have different idea as to what constitute Uyghur history. This will be done over the next few weeks. Tentatively it will be divided into early history, the Uyghur Kaghanate and the subsequent diaspora, the Islamic period, and the modern era. Suggestions however are welcome.

you know I went to a lot of trouble to fix this article years ago after it was mangled by propaganda from a certain country. I don't understand why people feel the need to re-write Uyghur history every few years or so. can you just go back and re-post the work I'VE ALREADY DONE and save yourself the time--Gurdjieff (talk) 05:55, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
Most of the content have been split to a separate article, so we can't restore that old version. I would have preferred not to make the latest change, but since someone did it, so it was an opportunity to start afresh. The old narrative was limited to a certain perspective, and the history of the Uyghurs is something that is disputed since ancient Uyghurs are not the same as modern Uyghurs, so history changes depending on how you look at it. It is therefore preferable to give a broader perspective so people can see the differences in opinion. There were also errors in there, so some changes are inevitable.

What happened to the photo in the infobox???
There was once a nice photo of Uyghur in the infobox why was it removed--Gurdjieff (talk) 05:56, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
The person who removed it didn't explain why, you can just undo it. Hzh (talk) 11:31, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
If you feel it is wrong, then by all means change it. There is a sound sample here and you can have a listen. Few in this page know much about phonology to know if anything is wrong, so anyone knowledgeable is always welcome. Hzh (talk) 02:01, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
what on earth is the hybrid isolation model?
I am biological anthropology major and I don't have a clue what this is supposed to mean. Furthter googling finds no new insight into this esoteric term. Explain it or drop it. --The hybrid isolation model
It's already explained in the text (where it says "or may be formed by a single event of admixture during a short period of time"). Hzh (talk) 19:24, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
