Template:Forms of government[edit]

Sorry, I undid your edit. Please take a look at Template talk:Forms of government. It seems that without the "basic", everything gets added and gets argued about. So, the discussion seemed to conclude that the title should be "Basic forms of government". Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 22:03, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Welcome to MILHIST[edit]

Greetings and... copyright issues[edit]

Greetings Turgeis. I've reverted your recent edits at Peninsular War because they consist, at least in part, of huge chunks of text copy pasted from Charles Esdailes' The Peninsular War: A New History.

Although you have credited the source, apart from the actual legal aspects involved, such wholesale pasting clearly goes against the spirit of how to use copyrighted text and its purpose, which is to use brief quotations to illustrate a specific point, not to give a wide-ranging account of events. Another problem here is that both the tone and scope used in a book ("Nor does much interest attach to such military events...") is very different from that used in an encyclopaedia.

This matter has already been raised recently at the corresponding talk page where you can find an interesting link on this topic.

Please go through your edits to the article and re-write them or simply remove them to make sure that the article conforms to both the spirit and the legal issues involved. If you have any doubts about what to include, the best place to raise them is at the article talk page, where other editors who follow the development of the article can give you advice. Regards, --Technopat (talk) 08:59, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

Sorry. I will rewrite these parts. Turgeis (talk) 16:53, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. :) --Technopat (talk) 17:35, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

August 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to History of Baden-Württemberg may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • Thus, on December 6, 1951, under [[Federal law]], a referendum was held in four voting districts ([[North Baden]], [[South Baden]], [[North Württemberg]] and [[South Württemberg-Hohenzollern]]

King[edit]

Hello, it's not that I'm so opposed to King having its own article it's more that a consensus view was reached in the past so one should at least bring it up for discussion again before changing it. It's how things are generally done on Wikipedia. I see that there was a longer discussion at Monarch as well. Due diligence is to figure out if the circumstances are significantly different now or if it's just your position that is contrary to the earlier consensus view. My advice is to give it a least a couple of weeks to see if anyone responds. If I have the energy to look into then I will do so and see how the situation now compares to the situation then.

It's also worth noting that the Monarch article is in OK shape. The King article you wrote was pretty thin and lacked any citations. If you are going to create an article for King it should be at least as good as the one at Monarch. SQGibbon (talk) 02:50, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
