Verification needed[edit]

i have removed:

  • Mark Antony is defeated in battle by consul Hirtius in the Battle of Mutina.

Nothing of this is mentioned on our Mark Antony article. Can anyone confirm this? Kingturtle 17:33, 1 May 2005 (UTC)

John Negroponte appointment is notable?[edit]

I propose to remove this entry: "2005 - John Negroponte becomes the first United States Director of National Intelligence." I recognize that this is an important position but I don't think someone assuming the job is important enough to warrant inclusion here. Thoughts? Thanks, Hu Gadarn

I agree. If this group ends up making some major historical contribution to history thanks to John's contributions, we might want to revist this. See ya in twenty years... Rklawton 18:05, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
Not notable in my opinion either. Yet another government department with little global impact at this time in history. -- Borameer 13:56, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. I have now removed the entry. Hu Gadarn 18:00, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Bicycle Day[edit]

I removed this as the day is incorrect per the article history of LSD and this is, in any event not notable. Argos'Dad 19:34, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Durr, I'm an idiot. It's the 19th, not 21st. My apologies. Though, I would argue the notability bit... Blackbox 19:26, 14 April 2007 (UTC)


Why is Princess Hamburger of MacDonald's not listed? Quite notable, I think. Her parents, Queen Cheeseburger and King Cola, are listed on their birthdays. Please add Princess Hamburger! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:29, 5 January 2012 (UTC)


On the bottom of the page, it says "Today" and sites the date as March 22, 2017, but actually it is March 26, 2017 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:40, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

Cleanup of births and deaths[edit]

In accordance with the guidelines, I'm continuing to weed the Births and Deaths sections by removing entries for celebrities with 0-4 articles in other languages. Where possible, these have been transferred to the relevant Year in Topic articles. As well as making the lists more manageable, this will help with the globalization effort.Deb (talk) 09:11, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
