Inclusion of Haripunchai Dvaravati and Srivijaya[edit]

I cut the Mon and Malay kingdoms of Haripunchai, Dvaravati, and Srivijaya from this list as (1) they aren't really part of Thai history as such; (2) they are already referenced from the Early history of Thailand article; (3) they don't fit well in the narrative series made by the other articles. I'm open to other opinions though. Gdr 10:21, 2004 Oct 19 (UTC)

... and then User:Ahoerstemeier made almost the same change! I'm happier now that there is the "Regional history" subheading. Gdr 13:19, 2004 Oct 19 (UTC)

Background colouring[edit]

To restate my opinion (with which User:Sodacan disagrees), the red-white-blue background colouring is not helpful. It doesn't serve a real purpose, makes the text harder to read and makes it impossible to recognise the links. I believe that the standard default template colours should be followed. --Paul_012 (talk) 17:17, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

I have reconfigured the template using {{Sidebar with collapsible lists}}, added Peopling of Thailand and removed the background colouring, since Sodacan didn't explain why the colours should stay, and no other reservations were raised. --Paul_012 (talk) 07:59, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Peopling of Thailand[edit]

Somebody who knows how to work with this template should add Peopling of Thailand to it, and add the template to the article. --Pawyilee (talk) 03:00, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for improving Template:History of Thailand‎, and adding Peopling of Thailand to it. I added the template to the article, but, rather than Related topics, would prefer to see it under Prehistory and Early history. --Pawyilee (talk) 13:51, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Military history[edit]
