Japanese Occupation 1942-1945[edit]

Japan started bombing parts of the Philippines in December 1941, but did not land troops of "occupy" any part of the Philippines until 1942. They surrendered the Philippines to the Allies in 1945. Gubernatoria (talk) 03:18, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Although they surrendered in 1945, but the occupation already ended in 1944 with the restoration of the Commonwealth of the Philippines. 207.233.67.8 (talk) 17:33, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

"Tributary State" =/= "Sinified State" (?) -- A Discussion[edit]

A relevant discussion is currently ongoing at Talk:Ma-i#.22Tributary_State.22_.3D.2F.3D_.22Sinified_State.22_.28.3F.29_--_A_Discussion. I initially put it here, but I concluded it was wisest to move it, since the discussion makes more sense there. - Alternativity (talk) 07:02, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Consulting the community re: the "Legendary" polities section and instances of WP:OR on the template[edit]

Hi all. Just informing the community that I've changed the organization of the "Archaic Epoch" section of Template:History of the Philippines to reflect geographical location (established or theorized), instead of politico-religeous (disputed in many of the cases). I'm also seeking community input about the section on "Legendary" polities. Many of those are based on Fringe theories, and I have to wonder if the subsection should actually exist at all. Also, I feel some content in the rest of "Archaic Epoch" needs to be tagged for WP:OR or WP:Fringe concerns. But I'm unsure how welcome such tagging will be on the template itself. So I'm bringing the matter up here for discussion. What are your thoughts on keeping/removing the "Legendary polities" section, and how exactly do we deal with glaring WP:OR on the template? Thanks and cheers! - Alternativity (talk) 09:09, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 26 December 2018[edit]

Greetings. I would just like to add the link to the article "Spanish–Moro conflict" to this template in the Colonial period (Spanish era) section. - Darwgon0801 (talk) 12:06, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

Darwgon0801, Where in the list? It appears to be in some kind of chronological order with the last few entries in the Spanish Era section obviously presaging the switch to the American colonial period. I'd guess this item needs to come before those, but where? Cabayi (talk) 12:37, 26 December 2018 (UTC)
I'd suggest replacing "Sulu Sea pirates" with this one. The Piracy in the Sulu Sea article starts with the 1840s, making this a "sub-war" of the Spanish–Moro conflict which started in 1565. Howard the Duck (talk) 02:22, 27 December 2018 (UTC)
 Done No more comments forthcoming, so I have followed the suggestion of Howard the Duck — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 09:30, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Switch American capture of Manila and Declaration of Independence[edit]

The American capture of Manila happened on August 13, 1898, while the declaration of independence was on June 12, 1898. Howard the Duck (talk) 02:22, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

Request for spelling correction[edit]

I have noticed that the template uses the spelling "Sa Huyun" twice, but links to the respective articles with the correct Vietnamese spelling "Sa Huỳnh". Basically, "Sa Huyun" is a misspelling, but even if it has become a kind of alternative spelling due to increased (WP-driven?) prevalence on the web (but not it academic research, as far as I can see), the Vietnamese site deserves to be spelled correctly in this highly visible template "History of the Philippines". –Austronesier (talk) 11:06, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
