Segontium[edit]

Just thought you should know that I added a reference from the National Museum Wales for the citation tag you left in this article in November 2014. And do you know how long it took me find a reference for the claim "Archaeological research shows that, by the year 120, there had been a reduction in the military numbers at the fort"? All of 10 seconds!! Yeah 10 seconds to do this search. And guess what? A reliable source was the actually the second choice. Can you believe it!? A 15 month old tag you left on that page asking for a citation took me all of a minute and a half to fix!!

I think editors like are you are the bane of this site because you know the system (and all it's rules). But do you really do anything useful? Not really. It's just bureaucracy. Your own contribs makes that clear as it's just one long list of adding [citation needed]. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 31.51.45.206 (talk)

Thanks for your helpful contribution, 31.51.45.206. Like many who cannot be major contributors (having created only 82 articles), I have limited time but try to do my best for WP. When an article is not one of my primary interests, I generally remove it from my watchlist. You'll see that I last edited that particular article on in November 2014, adding photos I had taken on a visit to Segontium. And, yes, in a brief copyedit that same day, I made a single request for a citation. Sorry if that's a problem to you—but that's how Wikipedia works, via the friendly co-operation of millions of editors. By all means give yourself marks for your citation search. However, a closer examination of my contributions will show that I, too, spend a large amount of my time finding citations and expanding ref link descriptions.

I add that I omitted to recommend WP:CIVIL to the IP editor in view of others' having already done that without effect. Bjenks (talk) 01:57, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Prisoner of war[edit]

Many thanks for your rational support in the face of attack by an unnecessarily rude user. I know for certain that the annotation was added by the artist but I am struggling to find a published source to verify it. Tomintoul (talk) 16:21, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
