Einstein and the Gay Day[edit]

  1. What is the source that claims this:
    1915 - Albert Einstein publishes the general theory of relativity.
    The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein, Volume 6: The Berlin Years: Writings, 1914-1917 does not mention this date.
  2. What is the source that claims that December 2nd is
    International Day of the Gay
    Google finds nothing about the "international day of the gay".

Both additions were added recently by an anonimous user. I'm removing them until we find the sources. --romanm (talk) 00:15, 22 November 2005 (UTC)

Edit request from, 2 December 2010[edit]

{{edit semi-protected}} Hello, Please edit birth entry for John Breckinridge to add 5th United States Attorney General

Likewise, please edit the birth entry for Edwin Meese to add 75th United States Attorney General.

Thanks. (talk) 02:23, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. Please provide a reliable source. However, note that John Breckinridge's page says he was born on August 7, and Edwin Meese's article says he was born on February 25. So, are you saying both of those article are wrong?

Saint Paul’s Cathedral[edit]

I cleaned up the entry on Saint Paul’s Cathedral, slightly: by changing the word ‘opened’m, to ‘consecrated’.

They are slightly different

Unsourced Event Removed[edit]

I reluctantly removed the following from the Events section:

I can't find a reference for this anywhere. The Constituent Assembly of India article doesn't mention it, nor do the biographical articles for the four leaders. Can anybody provide a link to support this? Alexbook (talk) 04:59, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

Births and Deaths[edit]

Continuing the ongoing effort to reduce the size of the Births and Deaths sections to make them manageable, I'm removing some celebrities with few or no articles in other wikipedias, moving the entries to the appropriate Year in Topic article if they were not already present. This is in accordance with the guidelines. See discussions at Wikipedia_talk:Days_of_the_year. Deb (talk) 16:14, 8 December 2015 (UTC)
