This article is awful[edit]

I am specifically looking at #List of dictatorships by death toll. It throws the term "Holocaust" around a lot, and has nonsense such as [[Armenian Genocide|Ho]][[Assyrian Genocide|loc]][[Greek Genocide|au]][[Great Famine of Mount Lebanon|st]], which produces Holocaust. One part says "Extrapolate as you will." – I'm fairly certain Wikipedia readers are not supposed to extrapolate anything for themselves. I also have no idea how Roman emperors from two millennia ago are related to the rest of the events, which happened in the late 19th century at the earliest.

I'm not very well informed on the topic, and I don't have access to any of the sources, so I can't fix it myself. ~barakokula31 (talk) 16:47, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

The Residential Schools event is misplaced[edit]

JamesStanley (talk) 12:07, 23 March 2017 (UTC) There is no evidence to support the inclusion of the Canadian Residential School events in a section describing events in this way: "Event that entail the intentional mass murder of individuals on the basis of ethnicity, religion, or race, or death caused by the forced eviction of individuals on the basis of race, religion or ethnicity." There is no evidence that this description at all applies to this event. I have already removed it once, but it was added by CorbieVreccan on the grounds that it violated "conflicted with our neutral point of view and verifiability policies" and that "Mass graves of children" are "still being found." There are no mass graves nor has any evidence surfaced verifying that there is. Similarly, removing an entry because it is not supported by any sources at all does not conflict with wikipedia's "neutral point of view and verifiability policies"--though I must confess, it may conflict with CorbieVreccan's personal policies.

If anyone has any evidence that this entry belongs in this list as this list if described, please provide it. Otherwise, leave the change.

@CorbieVreccan: This might be of interest to you. I am happy that @JamesStanley: you decided to talk over it here. Hope a consensus is reached over this matter. Best wishes to all! P.S. Please don't involve me in this matter as I am not interested in discussing this topic. Thanks! Yashovardhan (talk) 05:35, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

This article is poor[edit]

There are many estimates without sources, with some of them just plain wrong (e.g according to this article, civilian deaths caused by the Nazis are only slightly more than the Holocaust on average), the layout is generally poor with references all over the place, poor descriptions and some events are questionable or worded wrongly. The deeper you go, the worse it is. Should an article like this even exist in such a manner? Mellk (talk) 22:59, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

Israeli genocide and ethnic cleansing of Palestine[edit]

There is no mention of Israel's campaign of systematic ethnic cleansing and genocide of the Palestinians. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 182.185.235.188 (talk) 05:49, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Not much of a surprise there. We do not have any articles covering either "Israeli genocide" or "ethnic cleansing of Palestine". We have an article on the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, which estimates that there were about 21,500 casualties between 1965 and 2013. The source is "Major Episodes of Political Violence 1946-2012" by Monty G. Marshal. Dimadick (talk) 21:28, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
