Slaves[edit]

In the article, the writer says that the ban on importation of slaves prevented any increase in their numbers. It's hard to believe that statement hasn't already been edited out. Thr slave population which was already on the island managed to reproduce in the same manner as any other human population. Myboo127 (talk) 13:39, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

External links[edit]

I removed some external links, because, as I said in the edit summary, three were not live and one was in Swedish. Someone has put them back, without saying why. Without explaining their own changes, they demanded that I explain mine. So:

The three non-live links were to versions at archive.org, which are incomplete, slow, and years out of date. One of them in fact is functional and would not even need to be the archive.org version, but it's a blog. See WP:ELNO. The other two do not look to contain anything that would make it essential for a years-out-of-date slow copy to be linked; see WP:ELYES and please describe what criterion you think applies if you disagree. And as for Swedish - Wikipedia:External links says "Outside of citations, external links to English-language content are strongly preferred". A Swedish language web page would be useless even if there were some connection between St Helena and Sweden. There is not. Reedsrecap (talk) 09:27, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
