This article seems redundant and harming the quality etc. of Wikipedia[edit]

Questions to Free Guy and to anyone who feels an urge to defend the existence of this article.

  1. Why is this page started on 2 June 2011? At that moment we already had the article Syrian Civil War (under another name) with its subarticle Timeline of the 2011 Syrian uprising which later evolved into Timeline of the Syrian Civil War (January–April 2011), Timeline of the Syrian Civil War (May–August 2011), etc.
  2. Article 2011 in Syria seems in essence a reduplication of those Timeline-articles with perhaps information added not particularly concerning that uprising/war.
  3. As we know and you’ll probably agree, in a serious encyclopedia any topic is treated only in one article in full and complete detail; other articles then can refer to that main article by saying ‘see also…’, etc.. It is strictly forbidden in a serious encyclopedia to reduplicate, to start all over in great detail a topic that is already covered in the encyclopedia.
  4. If the idea is that 2011 in Syria contains material unrelated to the SCW, you should put that in some separate section. Material or events already (in detail) covered in (Timelines of the) SCW may not again be presented here in detail, you should refer for events part of the SCW to those already earlier existing articles (with ‘see main article…’ and the like). If you have details to add to SCW (events), add them in those existing Timelines. If you disagree with how events are presented in those earlier existing articles, start discussions on Talk pages of those pages to sort out the differences of opinion about the best way to present them. --Corriebertus (talk) 10:59, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
