Edit[edit]

My recent edit is just changing the alternative names for this poem. As this can be called Thesmophoriazusae, thesmorphoria or Poet and the women. 10:26, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Work in progress[edit]

I'm now editing this article as a follow-up to my edits of Aristophanes. Lucretius (talk) 12:22, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Nav. box[edit]

I have restored the nav box (linking to Aristophanes' plays) to the top of the article because it allows for easy cross-referencing between plays and because it is a useful reminder that each play is best understood in the context of all the plays. Lucretius (talk) 00:21, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Possible plagiarism?[edit]

I noticed that a lot of this Wiki article is very similar to this article at ancient-literature.com. Many of the sentences are the same and the basic layout is similar. Of course it's possible that the other website is simply copying from Wikipedia, but it would not be allowed if it is being done the other way round (that's plagiarism). --Hibernian (talk) 17:42, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

A good spot, but doing some digging I suspect that it is a case of other sites copying wikipedia than wikipedia copying other sites. The case:
  • The earliest copy of the article on ancient-literature.com archived with the wayback machine is from 2012 ([1]); wikipedia's article has had many of the most substantial overlapping bits of text since May 2009 ([2]).
  • The wikipedia text gradually evolved to that point over more than 100 edits, mostly by a single user, at the beginning of 2009. ([3])
  • ancient-literature.com's sources page explicitly lists wikipedia as one of its major sources.

So in this case I think it's not our fault. Caeciliusinhorto (talk) 18:23, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
