Albanian view[edit]

I couldn't see anything in the section that was added on the Albanian view that wasn't already mentioned in the article anywya. If I missed something, I think it would be better to incorporate at the appropriate point in the chronology, rather than have a section itn he middle which talks about the same events with a different spin.

I agree. This is not a 'He said"-"She said" mystery novel. All the info you redacted was in the article already. No need to recompile it, repackage it and rename it. Good call. Thank you. Dr.K. λogosπraxis 14:00, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
Chronology is fine by me. Stupidus Maximus (talk) 14:20, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
Great. Thank you very much. Take care. Dr.K. λogosπraxis 16:35, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
I will! Stupidus Maximus (talk) 18:15, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

I entered something about the Albanian view, please see my contribution here.--Sulmues Let's talk 20:41, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Huge footnote[edit]

Not really sure what the purpose of the huge footnote is... AnonMoos (talk) 11:13, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

It saves the reader from going to the citation, opening the file (often many pages and paragraphs long) and searching for the info through key-words in order to verify the facts as presented in the article or even worse sometimes the reader adds "citation needed" tags in the article when s/he cannot find the information. Here the information is all in one place at the end of the article and everyone can check it in-situ without having to open multiple browsers and check for specific sections in large files. Dr.K. λogosπraxis 18:04, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
For instance the first citation from the Australian Journal of Legal History is 33 pages long. Without adding the excerpts from the article one had to read all 33 pages to find out if we transcribed correctly the facts presented in the document. Meanwhile since the document is so long any editor could write anything they want and still cite the document, in the hope that no one will bother to check. By adding the verbatim section in the citation, transparency is greatly enhanced and everyone is on the same page, metaphorically speaking. Dr.K. λogosπraxis 18:14, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
Other times, an important fact is hiding in an obscure sentence amongst thousands of surrounding words. Good luck to the reader trying to verify it. By adding its exact quote, luck is eliminated as a factor and verifiability (WP:V), one of our core policies, gets a boost. Dr.K. λogosπraxis 18:35, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
A better option is to just cite to the specific page containing the material being referenced. In fact, the excessive verbatim quotations used here likely violate the non-free content criteria. —/Mendaliv//Δ's/ 15:23, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

JSTOR links in the External links section[edit]

Both links lead to screens saying that indicates "preview or purchase options not available", which I take to mean that they are not available for free. The titles of the articles attached to these link do seem relevant, are there any non-pay links available? IMHO (talk) 19:50, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Honestly they're just short book reviews of, respectively, a published thesis (which I haven't seen) and Leslie Gardiner's (almost polemical) book. My preference would be to roll the books themselves into a further reading section along the lines of what I put in Corfu Channel case. If you're interested in the books themselves, The Eagle Spreads His Claws can be found via OCLC 1657613, while Legal Problems in the Corfu Channel Incident can be found via OCLC 11481193. —/Mendaliv//Δ's/ 21:13, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

2014 research by Ana Lalag, Cold War International History Project[edit]

A reading of research by Ana Lalaj of the Woodrow Wilson Institute could throw further light on, and give richer context to this article. I suggest that future contributions include reference to the research of Ana Lalag of The Cold War International History Project (CWIHP). See Working Paper No. 70, Burning Secrets of the Corfu Channel Incident, Sept 2014, Ana Lalag. Simon Baddeley (talk) 23:26, 12 November 2016 (UTC)Simon Baddeley (talk) 00:01, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
