Chronicles[edit]

Good correction on Peterborough Chronicle. Some attempted to go from the beginning of the world, others from the Incarnation, etc. What I had been trying to suggest with the sentence was that the Chronicles began by using synopses of history before then going into the eye witnessed histories that we usually associate with a "chronicle."

Ring around the Rosey[edit]

I really liked your input at the page. Please don't take my attempt to rewrite as a refutation of your efforts, I liked the changes that you made and apprecaited the research you made. The Opie does not appear to posit to suggest the plague is the interpretation, rather he seems just to note it. That essay also was talking about the murkey origins. Although I appreciate the urge to keep things balanced and open-ended, the contextual proof in this case is very very weak for a more literal interpretation. I think increasing the article to talk about the passion the interpretation inspires in people would certainly be on topic. Anyway, thank you for your help and I hope none of rerply seemed snippy. Tone is hard to convey on here and I truly think you are fair minded and appreciate your contribution. leontes 03:13, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

History of europe[edit]

Hello Martin, yes maybe the intro could be a little less crap (that's the irony I'm guessing?!). I mean, just fiddle around with it if you think that you've got a bit more linguistic flair (and I'm sure you do). Looking back at the old one though, really, the last three out of four paragraphs were all from the 18th century on. It was a bit weighted, which I suppose is why I just thought I'd get rid of the lot and restart. All the same information I believe is there as before, isn't it? As for the section headings, the way I came up with them is that I made them up, of course! Don't you like them? "War and peace" isn't that bad is it? It pretty accurately describes the twentieth century (the first half was quite a lot of war, the second half quite a lot peace!) even if it is ripping Tolstoy off. What really matters of course is that the blanks be filled!! I think I've improved the article at least a bit. Wikidea 18:33, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
