January 8 - President of the United States George Bush becomes ill on a visit in Japan and vomits on the Japanese Prime Minister Miyazawa Kiichi.

Should this event really be stated here? It may sound funny, but it appears to be somewhat inadequate for a list of main events of 1992. Your opinions? -- Cordyph

"January" should be a third level headline. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:43, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

page layout years[edit]

There is a discussion on my talk page on page layout. For most of the last three hundred years there is inconsistency and duplication between the year in topic paragraph, the "see also" box and what is on the year by topic pages. Prior to 1950 I am pretty convinced we can painlessly (except for sore fingers) delete all of the year in topic paragraphs and ensure that the material goes into a "see also" box, creating such a box where none exists. Post 1950, particularly from the "year in US television" link a lot of material has been added to this paragraph as highlights (sometimes making up most of the page content pointed at). Personally I think we should still delete the paragraph, keep the box linking to the topic sites and move any particularly important parts of the year in topic paragraph to the main chronological list. This does involve undoing quite a bit of work which someone has done.

Therefore, unlike for prior to 1950 (where I've said no objection= I do it) for post 1950 I won't touch these pages unless a significant number of people agree with the change. (I am also unlikely to get the pre 1950 stuff done before summer unless the service speed improves dramatically).

Where are the births?[edit]

The births of 1992 are missing..............

Thanks for pointing that out, I've brought them back from an older version. --TM 21:49, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

i dont see births, like the daughter of curt cobain, etc. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:45, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

can someone edit allie dimeco's birthday? it's supposed to be on june 12, 1992 instead of september 9, 1992. Juan luveyo 23:30, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Done, but you don't have to ask on the talk page, in the future just take care of it youself. --Daniel J. Leivick 23:51, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

The format of this article is different than all the other years[edit]

Individual years that have multiple events are bulleted rather than repeating the date.

What I mean is instead of having events done like this:

March 26 - event

March 26 - another event

It is done

March 26


-another event

This may seem minor, but I have gone through all the years from 1950 and it looks a whole lot different. I think the format should be consistent throughout all the years.

I would like you to add the song "MCMXCII" from the album (N)Utopia by the symphonic metal group Graveworm to this article.

HEAVY vandalism[edit]

The article for this particular year was heavily vandalized by this person: Here you can see the damage he did: Probably some dumb little 10 year old who did it, but still, I think that I.P. should be banned from wikipedia


No place for that anywhere , let alone wikipedia , an international website,This "person"(I say person kindly) is obviously an overwhelming addition to the "scum of todays earth" —Preceding unsigned comment added by King f22 (talkcontribs) 00:13, 6 February 2008 (UTC)


Under the November 30th events someone has added "and i like chocolate". I don't know how you guys can change it but please do.

Table of Contents Position[edit]

Why is the table of contents at the bottom of the page? I'm not sure how to fix this. Sirconnorstack (talk) 18:22, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Calendars are Wrong have been Fixed[edit]

The Calendars shown beside each month are wrong starting with February. 1992 is a leap year but here February does not have 29 days, skewing the rest of the calendar. (talk) 00:40, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Looks like February was off, but the rest are fine. February is fixed now, though. Thanks, 2help (talk) 05:41, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
February is wrong right now and so is March and maybe even more months. Calle Widmann (talk) 14:22, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
The calendars have been fixed. ttonyb (talk) 16:16, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Phones Ringing off the Hook[edit]

October 3 – After performing a song protesting alleged child abuse by the Catholic Church, Sinéad O'Connor rips up a photo of Pope John Paul II on Saturday Night Live, causing huge controversy, leading the switchboards at NBC to ring off the hook.

Phones cant actually ring off their hook, this is an idiom, should it be here?--Billy Nair (talk) 21:14, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Dead link[edit]

During several automated bot runs the following external link was found to be unavailable. Please check if the link is in fact down and fix or remove it in that case!

alternate ways to spell 1992[edit]

There are several ways for spelling 1992. One is MCMXCII. Another kind of way of spelling 1992 is MCMLXXXXII.

Some people and companies choose MCMLXXXXII; others choose MCMXCII. Please clarify. Angela Maureen (talk) 03:31, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

December 19: Original Research?[edit]

Under the entry for Dec 19, it says unfounded suspicion. After reading the article linked as a reference, Im not sure the unfounded part is appropriate. Any thoughts? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gamekeeper7 (talkcontribs) 23:51, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Good call. I've removed the word "unfounded". Cheers, -- Irn (talk) 00:00, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Dan Quayle "potatoe" incident[edit]

BroadwayWest insists on including Dan Quayle correcting the spelling of the word "potato" as a significant event, arguing ""Small" events reveal as much about our culture as large. The "potatoe" incident received global attn, and highlighted cultural divns in the USA that prevail." I'm not sure what these cultural divisions are that you speak of, but as it stands in the article, the event does not mention them and is completely unsourced. Further, I don't see how these cultural divisions make the event relevant on an international scale - that is why does this belong in the 1992 article and not just the 1992 in the United States article? -- Irn (talk) 01:36, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
