Michel LeGray[edit]

I deleted that whole chunk on Michel LeGray; it is in an unusual writing style, and cites no references. Please can you point me to the location where this info is from. Y control 10:52, 12 April 2006 (UTC)


You are in violation of the Wikipedia:Three-revert rule, and have reached 4 reverts in the Iraq Conflict article. Please respect the rule, and undo your last reversion, which it notes is typically enough to avoid being blocked. Rangeley 15:58, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

User has been reported already. I did now know you could even undo reverts. --zero faults |sockpuppets| 16:35, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Ah, that is what people want! I could never figure out why people were making the template source unreadable by removing newlines. I have solved it now, I think, test:

--without parameters: {{ChemicalSources}}-- {{ChemicalSources}} --and with parameters: {{ChemicalSources|cas=123-45-6}}-- {{ChemicalSources}} --

There should be no empty lines anymore, now .. that works. Only the 'code' of the template is now unreadable .. well, people will have to live with that. (BTW, the template should be the last in the list. So the extra newline is not a big issue (I think), I hope we get to a more permanent solution later (see Wikipedia:Chemical sources & Wikipedia talk:Chemical sources). But it is good now, I hope.

"Ok, But i take the liberty of deleting the exact date leading to the page history from the discussion page. -- (talk) 13:26, 18 March 2008 (UTC)"

I've reverted this because it's somewhat pointless if the article's complete page history is visible to all, which it is. Anyone seriously wanting this information will find it, so refactoring other's comments on a talk page is unnecessary, and actually deprecated. Thanks. --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 13:35, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Assassin's Creed Historical Science-Fiction[edit]

What the reader is meant to understand is that this isn't simply historical fiction with some made up protagonists (The Auditores) and plot, but historical science-fiction. This takes it one step further by incorporating clear elements of science fiction in a historical fiction story (2012 doomsday garbage, Vän Daniken's Ancient astronauts theory (which personally offends me as an archaeologist, though I do believe in extraterrestrial life, but do not think they could be arsed to come to our planet out of the billions of others in the galaxy), and probably some other stuff that falls under the same category) and so we get historical science-fiction. That is why we are using that wording currently. I do not think it counts as Psuedo-history as the game isn't meant to rewrite history (even with the comment about Templars doing this and that with history), just entertain. Besides, I don't think that even the most weak-minded of Vän Daniken's or Simcha Jacobavici's acolytes would think this is meant to be an actual accurate history (even though some of what they will swallow continues to amaze me). If you really think the psuedo should be added though, please take it up at Talk:Assassin's Creed, which is the appropriate place to hash out such disputes. Also please be careful when reverting edits that you don't do so too often, I'm afraid we engaged in a WP:EW. Thanks. =) Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie Say Shalom! 19:26, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Whatever. It's not historical, but if you prefer an article containing falsehoods, have it your way. -- (talk) 08:07, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
It is taking historical settings and heavily applying aspects of fiction and science fiction (hence Historical fiction, which is the name of that genre). That does not in any way communicate the idea that it is fact or even an attempt at writing history, I'm not sure how I can explain this any differently than I already have or anyone else has. Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie Say Shalom! 09:25, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
I'm sure you can't, I think I understand you quite well, I still disagree. Historical Fiction, as I understand it, does not usually describe factual events, but the events are plausible. The Physician is the best example I can think of. AC on the other hand, is plain SF, just in a medieval (Renaissance, whatever) setting. -- (talk)
Well, it's an unusual case so it's hard to place by the ways you put it. Would Historical fantasy science-fiction make you feel better about the article? Psuedohistory is basically revisionism (at best highly offensive and at worst completely destructive), and that's not what was attempted with this game (though van Daniken apparently did a show where he presented the aliens thing as a real hypothesis). Also, and I really should have brought this up before, but you can't add something like that anyway without a reliable source referring to it as such, preferably multiple ones. It is just WP:OR otherwise (or maybe I did bring that up, I don't remember).
I wasn't aware that Psuedohistory is used for a certain outlook on history, the article just should say that it's not histric. -- (talk) 16:19, 2 May 2011 (UTC)
From the article on the subject: "Pseudohistory is a term applied to a type of historical revisionism, often involving sensational claims whose acceptance would require rewriting a significant amount of commonly accepted history, and based on methods that depart from standard historiographical conventions. Cryptohistory is a related term, applied to pseudo-historical publications based on occult or irrational notions." So it's got to do with trying to revise history through conspiracy theories and such. The consensus is that it should stay there from what I can see, and it's less confusing for the layman, so it will most likely stay.

  1. Please do not delete data.
  2. Please add the sources to your editions.
