Disambiguation link notification for June 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Timeline of Seattle, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Susan Crawford (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Paris Timeline[edit]

Thanks for your suggestion for the Paris timeline. This timeline is closely linked to the History of Paris article, so I've been following basically the same section headings there, those generally used in French history articles; (ancient, middle ages, renaissance, enlightenment, Revolution, Empire, etc. I'm worried that the 19th century is going to be a very large century, and I was planning to break it up into several sections. The 20th and 21st centuries can be defined simply as centuries, as they are now. Let me finish the timeline, and then we can look at it again and see if it would make sense to divide it up differently. SiefkinDR (talk) 13:49, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Shouldn't there be standards for the inclusion of items into this timeline? I didn't think this was meant to be a comprehensive list of every event that has taken place in Paris, but a selection of important historic events. I've been looking at other timelines and it seems to me that the best model for Paris is the Rome timeline, which is concise and is limited to important historic events. As you request, I will restore those items, but I'm afraid this list is going to get extremely long of there's no requirement that the events have some importance to Paris history.

Also, while I'm in a complaining mood, have you looked at the article on Paris in the 19th century, in the banner that's been added to the timeline? It's truly awful- a Marxist version of French history, full of mistakes and opinions, and no citations. Why are we linking to that? SiefkinDR (talk) 19:32, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
