Visual source evidence[edit]

Samoan history should be displayed on the internet with a few pictures as proof with captions!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.4.53.145 (talk) 04:50, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

New link[edit]

Just added a new external link to an imporant new web feature on the New Zealand administration of Samoa. Among other things, this provides a much more accurate account of Black Saturday. Jamie Mackay (talk) 08:18, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

What should I do?

Don't panic; deletions can take a little longer at Commons than they do on Wikipedia. This gives you an opportunity to contest the deletion (although please review Commons guidelines before doing so). The best way to contest this form of deletion is by posting on the image talk page.

  • If the image is non-free then you may need to upload it to Wikipedia (Commons does not allow fair use)
  • If the image isn't freely licensed and there is no fair use rationale then it cannot be uploaded or used.
  • If the image has already been deleted you may want to try Commons Undeletion Request

Inaccurate and biased[edit]

This article is the most biased piece of writing I have read on Wikipedia. It seems determined to portray the Mau movement as non-violent and peaceful, despite the stoning of police by crowds and the clubbing to death of a police officer. If this was provoked by police, ok, make that clear. But to ignore Samoan's part in the incident is wrong. I started to make a few changes but it became clear that it is more than one or two parts which need updating. I think that the whole article needs a re-write by someone who is independent from the issue and knows what he/she is doing.

What do you think? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 222.153.60.225 (talk) 03:49, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

I agree. No sources are given either, and seems to violate NPOV. Adzze (talk) 21:29, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

This section is too strong: "Upon learning of the current situation in Western Samoa, the American Governor offered help to Colonel Logan who was in charge; Logan was British born and hated Americans. He destroyed the telegram and cut off any other contact to American Samoa. The Americans had a large medical team who could have saved many lives."
