Baibars[edit]

I dont think this box is in the right place. Article of Baibars speaks about Baibars and his achievments. Samsam22 00:50, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Border color[edit]

How would people feel if we made the border some other color? The red is really glaring and incompatible with the general color scheme of Wikipedia. – Scartol · Talk 02:27, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Seeing no discussion in the past three days, I went ahead and changed it. If people feel strongly about the border color, let's discuss it here. – Scartol · Talk 16:32, 4 November 2007 (UTC)


History of Slavery in United States[edit]

Why does this template not include the article Slavery in the United States. I hope that is there is a reason other than bias?

Because nobody who knew about this article has added it.--SasiSasi (talk) 01:46, 12 November 2008 (UTC)


Change to template[edit]

Have tried to improve the look of the template, and the categorisation. Still needs work and addition.--SasiSasi (talk) 01:49, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Nice work. :-) — Malik Shabazz (talk · contribs) 04:02, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
I used another template as "template". Not sure about the colours, but someone who knows more about that then me can change them.--SasiSasi (talk) 12:27, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Removed "Wage Slavery" link from template[edit]

The removed article is off-topic for this category. The current disambiguation page also distinguishes this Marxist analogy from the actual practice of slavery. StephenMacmanus (talk) 01:41, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

It is not a marxist analogy.Harrypotter (talk) 19:54, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Underware Railroad[edit]

What is this Underware Railroad in the template? I assume it's supposed to be Underground Railroad. JBH23 (talk) 00:56, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Terminology/New heading of template ["Slavery & Unfree labour"][edit]

I think the placement of unfree labour under the heading of slavery is dubious because it tends to imply that unfree labour is a form of slavery. Whereas, in fact, unfree labour is a broader and more generic term that includes slavery, along with less well known practices. Hence I have changed the heading of the template.

Unfree labor in title?[edit]

It doesn't seem right to include "unfree labor" in the title of the template. The title should be common & concise, following rules similar to WP:TITLE. Instead, a link to the article Unfree labor could be in the body of the template, in a new section such as "associated topics" or "related topics". But it just looks odd in the title. Thoughts? --Noleander (talk) 13:41, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

I implemented this change. --Noleander (talk) 19:10, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
