There have been two Sieges of Malta - one sixteenth century, and one WWII. What should be the nomenclature... World War II siege article has already been made Siege of Malta. --[[User:OldakQuill|Oldak Quill]] 23:00, 3 Jul 2004 (UTC)
- I can't find a specific guideline for disambiguating in this case, but for battles and sieges, couldn't we disambig by year? Siege of Malta (1940) and Siege of Malta (16xx) would work, I think. [[User:Sverdrup| ]] 01:26, 4 Jul 2004 (UTC)
- Yes - for events, if none of them are significantly more famous than the others, disambiging by year is the most common way to do it. →Raul654 01:49, Jul 4, 2004 (UTC)
A longer list
This query returns more articles on sieges than are currently in the list. Perhapse if someone is interested they can run it and add the sieges which are not already in the list. Philip Baird Shearer 08:24, 3 October 2005 (UTC)
- I've recently added a couple of (police) sieges, and I'm wondering just what criteria of size/duration/fame should determine what goes on this list? Obviously, if there is no limit placed on how significant a siege must be to go on this list, this list could grow to thousands of entries, especially now that fictional sieges are being added. --WacoKid 18:25, 18 February 2006 (UTC)
Can someone add the siege of Stalingrad and Fallujah to the siege list?
More interesting list
Why has fictional been added? Isn't this supposed to be a list of historical sieges? surly 'Lord of the Rings' sieges belong somewhere else, its off topic. Padraig Galvin (talk) 17:14, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
