Why does the article on Vivian Fuchs state that his birthday is Feb 2? - SimonP 22:14, Nov 8, 2003 (UTC)

Should we have subsections?[edit]

Should we have subsections as the list is pretty long. --Hemanshu 16:55, 11 Feb 2004 (UTC)


Is Professor Leet's day legit? Or is that something that was added and not removed?

"The name "Natasha Bobo"[edit]

Of course, now its deleted, but in 1980 it said a woman named "Natasha Bobo was born today, but when it was clicked it went to CBS's past show "Together We Stand". (Trampton 08:41, 11 February 2007 (UTC)).

Announcement of the retirement of the Pope....[edit]

....well, I have undone edits regarding this twice now, and other established users seem to agree. I would like to build concensus here: what do other think? Is the announcement of the retirement notable enough to be included (His actual retirement would be notable enough, imho)? I think WP:DOY would point to it not being notable enough.

The announcement is not notable. After it occurs, the actual date of resignation will be. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 18:21, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Iranian Revolution[edit]

@Howcheng: Hey, I checked the article and sought a section tagged with a POV template while there was no discussion on the talk page dealing with this issue. I also searched for the user who had tagged the section and I found that the user is no longer active. So, I removed the tag since there was no ongoing dispute and I think it's now eligible for the main page. What do you think?Saff V. (talk) 13:15, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Possible discrepancy re: "gerrymandering"[edit]

The entry in question is 1812 – Massachusetts governor Elbridge Gerry is accused of "gerrymandering" for the first time. When the "gerrymandering" link is clicked, that page's Etymology section ( [[1]] ) states "The word gerrymander (originally written Gerry-mander) was used for the first time in the Boston Gazette on 26 March 1812."

Apparently, one or the other is incorrect. Can anyone shed light on which is correct?

Semi-protected edit request on 12 February 2019[edit]

The sentence that reads "Kassa Hailu is crowned Tewodros II, Emperor of Ethiopia, by Abuna Salama III in a ceremony at the church of Derasge Maryam" needs a period at the end. (talk) 01:22, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
