Moving Novorossiya to New Russia
Hi there; this is just a quick note to let you all know that the 2015 WikiCup will begin on January 1st. The WikiCup is an annual competition to encourage high-quality contributions to Wikipedia by adding a little friendly competition to editing. At the time of writing, more than fifty users have signed up to take part in the competition; interested parties, no matter their level of experience or their editing interests, are warmly invited to sign up. Questions are welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Thanks! Miyagawa (talk) 22:05, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Category:Historical roads, which is within the scope of this WikiProject, has been nominated for deletion. If you would like to participate in the discussion, you are invited to add your comments at the category's entry on the Categories for discussion page. Thank you.

Help Wanted: RMS Lusitania 100th Anniversary
On May 7th of this year we will observe the 100th anniversary of one of the most consequential events in maritime history. May I suggest a full court press to get this article up to FA status in time for the anniversary? -Ad Orientem (talk) 04:41, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
WikiProject X is live!
You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.
750th anniversary of De Montfort's Parliament
20th January 2015 is the 750th anniversary of the first English Parliament. The article De Montfort's Parliament is being improved and further contributions would be welcome and beneficial to work it towards GA.
The BBC  are planning a "Democracy Day" of live events, discussions and debate, produced in partnership with the Speaker’s Office of the House of Commons, including broadcasts from inside Westminster. Whizz40 (talk) 21:12, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
Interpreting the Domesday Book
I'm adding information from Domesday Book-related sources to various settlement articles, but they're not always easy to interpret. Can anyone give me some advice? PaleCloudedWhite (talk) 08:19, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Guidi di Bagno
Wikipedia Primary School invitation
Hi everybody. On behalf of the teams behind the Wikipedia Primary School research project, I would like to announce that the article Apartheid (of interest to this wikiproject) was selected a while ago to be reviewed by an external expert. We'd now like to ask interested editors to join our efforts and improve the article before March 15, 2015 (any timezone) as they see fit; a revision will be then sent to the designated expert for review (please see the article's talk page for details). Any notes and remarks written by the external expert will be made available on the article's talk page under a CC-BY-SA license as soon as possible, so that you can read them, discuss them and then decide if and how to use them. Please sign up here to let us know you're collaborating. Thanks a lot for your support! Elitre (WPS) (talk) 17:07, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
Franz, Duke of Bavaria
salve, le scrivo per dirle che la fonte da dove ho trovato le seguenti onorificenze, si trova a The Descendants of Queen Mary IV and III quindi le dico che la fonte è attendibile --220.127.116.11 (talk) 11:53, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Is this material about history or does it provide an annotated bibliography?
I'd be grateful if folks from this project would please review Climate fiction#history, and then offer opinions if the section is discussing the history of climate fiction or provides an annotated bibliography? The thread for that discussion is Talk:Climate fiction#History or annotated bibliography?. Thanks for your opinions. NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 19:02, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
Cool little timeline template I made
I was in the process of making a graphic timeline a couple of years ago for a project I've since lost interest in. I'm clearing out my user space and thought I'd leave it here in case anyone here wants to use the code as a template for their own graphic timelines. Abyssal (talk) 17:40, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Czech history categories
There is currently a discussion at Talk:Marie Antoinette#Tone and appropriate content that may be of interest to members of this project. Comments from interested editors are welcome.. NebY (talk) 21:01, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
Should Kingdom of Hungary be a child category of History of Romania?
With User:Redbluelighting I've had a discussion here among others about the question whether Category:Kingdom of Hungary should be a child category of Category:History of Romania (and more generally whether Kingdom of Hungary should be a child category of the history of all of Hungary's surrounding countries). The discussion hasn't led to consensus between the two of us. Could you please share your opinion on this issue at the talk page of WP:Romania? Marcocapelle (talk) 05:52, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
