Bleached Corals?[edit]

Could somebody please place a picture of the bleached versus the still alive corals? This might help to understqnd the process. Thanks!

Any Maldivian here? Please add more about Maldivian Culture. Most of the information under Culture is irrelevant. Please add more!

Semi-protected edit request on 18 September 2015[edit]

"It is located southwest of India and Sri Lanka in the Laccadive Sea." please CHANGE to  "It is located southwest of India and Sri Lanka in the Arabian Sea."

Reason: Maldives is a 100% Muslim country, our script is written from right to left, after english the spoken language is Arabic. [1]

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: It has nothing to do with religion or language. The body of water is called the Laccadive Sea. See Arabian Sea and check the boundaries. -- Sam Sailor Talk! 16:06, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 16 October 2015[edit]

Please Change ""Location of Maldives in the Indian Ocean" to "Location of Maldives in the Indian Ocean-Arabian Sea" because The countries with coastlines on the Arabian Sea are Somalia, Djibouti, Yemen, Oman, Iran, Pakistan, India and the Maldives. [1]

thank you sincerely citizen of the Maldives. 121.54.54.154 (talk) 11:14, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Not done as our Arabian Sea article states - "The Arabian Sea is a region of the northern Indian Ocean" so it is already covered. - Arjayay (talk) 14:09, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Written pre-Islamic sources?[edit]

"The ancient Maldivian Kings promoted Buddhism, and the first Maldive writings and artistic achievements, in the form of highly developed sculpture and architecture, are from that period."

Apart from the fact that writings rarely take the form of sculpture let alone architecture, this text[2] claims the absence of indigenous sources pre-12th century. It is "only" a Ph.D. thesis, but unless there is a more reliable citation supporting the claim of existence, the word "writings" might have to be removed. --Lieven Smits (talk) 13:12, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 4 external links on Maldives. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:

You may set the |checked=, on this template, to true or failed to let other editors know you reviewed the change. If you find any errors, please use the tools below to fix them or call an editor by setting |needhelp= to your help request.

  • If you have discovered URLs which were erroneously considered dead by the bot, you can report them with this tool.
