More anniversaries:

I was recently perusing this page because I was making the Template anniversaries page for this article. Some things I noticed:

  • This page says the International Federation of the Red Cross was formed in 1863. But the article says it was 1919. When was it?
  • This page says that Boulder Dam's first generator went online October 26. But the article says October 9. When was it?
  • This page says that Jordan and Israel signed a peace treaty in October 1994. History of Jordan says it was in July 1994. If there were two treaties, then I have to wonder why... If there was one, when did it occur?

So, can the people who added these to the article provide cites? LuckyWizard 01:14, 6 Apr 2004 (UTC)

According to the official chronology of the Hoover dam, here, It was October 26th. I am updating the Hoover Dam article, and adding it pack to this page. LordJumper 19:33, 19 August 2005 (UTC)

American Idol event[edit]

"2006 - Mayré Martínez wins the first Latin American Idol." I know people take this show very seriously but is this really notable? -- Borameer 17:01, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

  • Probably notable in the context of TV game shows and the like, so if there is a chronology page for that genre then it would be fine there. But very not-notable in the general history of the world. Darcyj 11:42, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Decommissioning of USS Iowa?[edit]

Today's the 19th anniversary of the Decommissioning of the USS Iowa, should any mention be made? or would that be better for the 20th anniversary? Alec92 (talk) 16:33, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Are decommissionings celebrated? I haven't heard of that before. How many battleships have been decommissioned by the fleets of the world? It must be a hundred, not counting those that were sunk in battle. Is this decommissioning more notable than most?   Will Beback  talk  18:37, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

holidays and observances - Alfred the Great[edit]

The Wiki article indicates that he is not held as a saint by the Catholic Church as such - should this specify "Church of England"? --Richardson mcphillips (talk) 13:05, 26 October 2015 (UTC)


@Rlbarton: What is the threshold of notability here? The funeral has its own article as an event and yet it is not notable? While the 2004 release of GTA San Andreas is? Sodacan (talk) 02:10, 31 October 2017 (UTC)
