I don't think anyone who's ever read any history can help here! Where do they get these ideas? --Wetman (talk) 01:20, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

To-do list[edit]

  • Expansion is needed in these sections (in order of urgency):
    • South & Southeast Asia section, which should at least have a section on India and one on Vietnam
    • Africa section, particularly on North Africa, Swahili coast, and Bantu societies
    • East Asia section, particularly on Japan and Korea
    • Central Asia section, particularly on the Mongol Empire
    • Eastern Europe section, particularly on the Slavs, the Bulgarian Empires, and early Russia.

Let's try to keep the size of the article around 150,000 bytes or smaller (you can check this on "View history"). If the article starts to get too long, we need to start condensing some sections (specifically ones that may be too detailed). Try cutting out information of minimal importance.

  • More citations are needed in:
    • South and Southeast Asia
    • Korea
    • The Americas
    • End of Period
  • A greater variety of references are needed in general

Feel free to add to or comment on the list of things to do. InvaderCito (talk) 01:02, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

refs/footnotes sort[edit]

A refs/footnotes sort out needs to be done. --J. D. Redding 01:49, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

This entire page is a futile effort, apparently based on nothing else but "I do not like the term 'Middle Ages'". Well, WP:UCN. And WP:CFORK, you are not supposed to create content forks merely based on terminological preference. Not to mention that "post-classical" implies a reliance on the concept of classical antiquity no less than "medieval" does. "UCN"? "post-classical Asia" gets a mere dozen hits on google books (including false positives such as "XML by Example", actually it gets two hits, both for "post-Classical Asia Minor"), while "medieval Asia" gets about 300. This sounds about right, and is entirely sufficient to support my point. --dab (𒁳) 05:21, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

The page Middle Ages currently refers exclusively to European history; this page refers to global history. Power~enwiki (talk) 06:45, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
