Yes. The history on that page is written in summary form and it omits specific details not essential to the city's development. The same can be added in the History of Mumbai as it is a dedicated article on the city's history. The event though, finds a mention under ==Climate==.

Fair enough. Someone did ask the question on the talk page, and I was curious as to why there seemed no mention of the flood in the main article. -- Hongooi 15:33, 4 January 2006 (UTC)


Although a page does not yet exist, a red link helps indicate that such a page is needed (especially if it appears across mutiple articles) and that it would be nice if someone knowledgable could write one... --MChew 11:03, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Malik Maqbul[edit]

Thanks! I somehow overlooked that. --AltruismTo talk 07:28, 14 June 2007 (UTC)


I see that you are helping out with some highly needed disambiguation work. When you disambiguate chieftain from articles on Scandinavian matters, could you, please, link chieftain to Germanic chieftain instead since it is more specific.--Berig 06:55, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Technocracy related articles[edit]

Hi, I see that you've recently been redirecting all references to Technocracy or Technocrats to the Technocracy (bureaucratic) article. I really wish you hadn't done that, because several of the redirects you did were wrong. Firstly, the articles relating to the Technocracy movement, are not meant to be linked to the bureaucratic article (for a list of all the articles I'm talking about see here [1]). There are some sort-of, complicated reasons for this, but basically, it's not a good idea to link them. Secondly you've redirected loads of links from things like Technocrat or Technocrats to the Technocracy (bureaucratic) article, yet there is already an article dealing with the term, see Technocrat (derogatory). That article might be a better redirect for some of the cases than the bureaucratic one. Anyway, like I said, I think a lot of those redirects are not very good, and it will take me some time to correct all of them on the Technocracy Movement articles, let alone all the rest. I realise that many of the links on the articles were not that good and sometimes superfluous, like when an article links to both Technocracy Movement and Technocracy, but the main reason for this is that the articles have been changed and renamed so many times that the old edits don't make much sense. So if you could, I'd like you to review some of the ones you did, as per the above. Thanks. --Hibernian 03:05, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Walter Model [edit]

Where would you like me to comment. I have skimmed the article and see little to criticise, but may have a few pointers for you to help improve the article. --Philip Baird Shearer 21:32, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Nice work with the citations, very speedily done. I'm impressed! Leithp 14:50, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

I happened to be online at just the right time. Thanks for fixing up the British/American English thing; I have some idiosyncrasies in my personal spelling preferences.... -- Hongooi 08:29, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

I have nominated Walter Model for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. DrKay (talk) 21:27, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

Italics for military operations[edit]

See "List of World War II military operations" for example. Military operation names are italicised, & this has nothing to do with them being foreign. Its very similar to ship names. But although I am sure I saw this in Wikipedia I can't now find it, so apparently there is no direction given. Appreciate your comment on the article above. GrahamBould 10:49, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Night of the Long Knives[edit]

This article has been substantially improved as of late, and is now a featured article candidate at WP:FAC. Your comments would be especially appreciated.--Mcattell 22:11, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

printing press[edit]

I appreciate your assistance in removing unsourced material. I reverted to an earlier stable version-- --if I have lost any of your improvements-- I'm not sure about the china/.Chinese one in particular, just please put them back. I believe that is some evidence for the Korean origin of a printing press, tho, & I'll put it in later. You may note there is a long history of difficult balance in this and related articles, between those who think the chinese invented nothing, or invented everything. the solution has been to move the East Asian material into the separate History of typography in East Asia article. I'd be grateful for anything else you can contribute to this series of articles. 05:52, 1 August 2007 (UTC) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by DGG (talkcontribs).

Royal Navy[edit]

Thanks for your earlier comments on this peer review. I have now acted on all the comments and am hoping for any further suggestions. Any improvements needed? Thanks again Woodym555 14:46, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Major upset[edit]

How does a "major" upset is different from a "minor" upset? Who determines which upsets are major, which are minor and which just aren't upsets at all? What set of criteria are used? How can we, as Wikipedia editors, try and be more objective and separate a news report's point of view from a set of basic facts? Does it even matter if the upset was major or minor or even an upset at all; is it encyclopedically relevant? Can't we just let the facts speak for themselves? If so and so was a favourite to win, and someone else beat them, why can't we leave it up to the reader to decide if there was an upset and, if so, to what degree? Cheers, CP 15:59, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
