I just wanted to explain my recent edit war with myself. I was informed by a collegue of mine that she had put my name into the page, and that it had been promptly deleted. I was looking through the history for IP edits, followed by a reversion. I clicked one such entry, and saw that someone had entered an obviously fictitious birth. I promptly realized I had to delete the vandalism, and did so. Fifteen seconds later, I realized what I'd done. Hope that clears it up. --Milton 04:29, 27 September 2006 (UTC)


What on earth is wrong with this page? The births section refused to appear, certain changes made from yonks ago won't appear either... Any ideas? --User:MellonCollie 19:37, 30 September 2006

Removal of entries[edit]

In accordance with the guidelines, I've started weeding the Births and Deaths sections by removing entries for celebrities with 0-4 articles in other languages. Where possible, these have been transferred to the relevant Year in Topic articles. As well as making the lists more manageable, this will help with the globalization effort.Deb (talk) 06:52, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

first recorded sun spot vs one of the earliest recorded[edit]

The link on the word "observed" goes to an article that says "the first precisely dated sunspot observation in China occurred on May 10, 28 BCE." Likewise this talk page is firmer than the article. I suggest the article be changed to correspond with the way it is phrased here on the talk page. --Richardson mcphillips (talk) 19:28, 10 May 2016 (UTC)
