The IMAP article links to this page, but obviously meant one of the software entries for Citadel. I would guess Citadel/UX but that page is marked for deletion. So how should the IMAP page be corrected? --JamesStansell

Dumb picture[edit]

I don't think a lord of the rings picture is necessary, thanks --Gerrado 16:21, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

--The lord of the rings picture could be a very useful way to put the article in perspective for some readers. The is no reason why the picture should not be there, as a citadel is not limited to reality, and in fact many of the most well known citadels hold a fictional connotation. So please try to objective and think before you edit; and lets try not to call stuff 'dumb' it is very informal for wiki standards. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:08, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Limited scope[edit]

The scope of the article is too limited. Someone inserted a link to this article in the article on King George V class battleships and I followed it here. A citadel on a battleship is obviously somewhat different from the citadels described in this article, although one can only guess at the exact meaning of the word in the context of battleships. It must refer to an especially well armoured location on the ship, but what was it precisely? The bridge? The operations control center below the waterline? Time for someone with some specialised knowledge to step in. --Recoloniser 14:29, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

--The answers to your questions are in the disambiguation, and I believe that the problem of the limited scope, has been solved by the disclamer at the top of the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:12, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

I'm unsure if the Latin derivative by way of French is attested here or rather if there is a proto-IE stem cognate as demonstrated with प्रासाद [prAsAda m. (castle)] of the Sanskrit, having the सद stem . त to द shifts are typically localized and प्रा may be an older prefix that vanished elsewhere. Or the ta in citadel is an altered reduplication of the त stem. Maybe someone more qualified in the field can provide further references. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kallesen Other (talkcontribs) 21:23, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Dates for Acropolis Paragraph[edit]

The dates for this paragraph should be 800BC - 600AD and not 8000BC - 600AD. It talks about the Acropolis and the Acropolis article states "Not a lot is known about the architectural appearance of the Acropolis until the Archaic Era". And the Archaic Era is defined as starting 8th Century BC.

And while there may have been buildings on this hill a few centuries beforehand, nothing suggests a citadel. Certainly we cant go back to 8000BC.

This seemed obvious, and I would have changed it directly, but the incorrect date has remained in the article for 4 years through various edits, so I am putting the change to discussion first.
