Result[edit]

This edit war is ridiculous. The entry in the infobox concerning the result has gotten to the point where it should just be removed. Frankly if you can't summarise it, then leave it out and put it in the article under the Aftermath section. Centyreplycontribs – 04:34, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

If I understand you, a thoroughly-cited result should be removed because a well-known vandal keeps tampering with it while never producing a single source? Albrecht (talk) 14:33, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
A thoroughly-cited result should be discussed in detail in the article and not make the infobox look ridiculous. Put one citation in the infobox or something like that and then the rest in the article. Or even better, take my suggestion and remove it from the infobox. Actually make readers read the aftermath to allow them to make their own conclusions rather than just give them a one word summary: Britain won/France won etc. Centyreplycontribs – 10:15, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
